Here you will get all the necessary information; to play against an Ahri, one of the most used champions in the Mid line of League of Legends; this agile AP damage killer can wreak havoc when starting a teamfight, which makes more than one wonder How to counter an Ahri?

When talking about Ahri; you must understand that he has powerful combos that can cause a lot of damage, so your first line of defense must always be the minions which will make it difficult for this magician to connect any of her combinations to you. Note that her «E» called «spell» throws a kiss that will provoke your character and thus connect his other powers.

Another point to keep in mind is your «spiritual impulse» the «R», which allows you to throw yourself 3 times in the direction you want, allowing you to position yourself in the place you want. However, this «R» is a double-edged sword; as she consumes her ulti, the champion is very vulnerable to attacks and it is your best time to go with everything and finish her off. I recommend you use the following champions to gain a considerable advantage; against this 9 tailed bitch.

Champions who counter an Ahri

With these champions you will have a distinct advantage when facing Ahri; of course you must take into account your abilities with these champions and those of your opponent; as many players develop different tactics or game styles when playing against a counter.


This champion can become one of the biggest nuisances for an Ahri; LeBlanc with its high mobility is a difficult target to hit, and can easily attack between his minions, allowing him to win in most attack exchanges.

Keep in mind that with this champion you will keep an Ahri at bay, which means you must keep your warped line to avoid surprises or unexpected gankeo, which could complicate the line or lose your advantage.


Unlike LeBlanc who can initiate fights in the first levels; Swain doesn’t have this advantage against Ahri, but after passing the first levels your champion becomes an AP tank difficult to kill; so much so that an Ahri will need help from her team and probably an Ignite to be able to kill you.


This option is recommended for people who know how to play with Yasuo; for an Ahri it is difficult to connect its combo with the «wind wall» protecting it at all times, in addition the «E» called «shear blade» offers this champion a great mobility. Both to follow Ahri to infinity and beyond, and to escape from it. Using the enemy minions of course.


This champion could be considered the simplest on the list; because he doesn’t require as much skill as you need for a LeBlanc or Yasuo, his first defense is his powerful passive «void alteration»; which allows him to avoid the first power thrown by his opponent, which would greatly complicate the way Ahri connects his combos, especially the «spell».

But Malzahar not only counts on his passivity to be able to win any confrontation against Ahri; he also possesses an «R» called «infernal pincer» that directly counters the «R» of the fox, preventing him from escaping for 2.5 Seg. If you use your powers well you could eliminate your rival with a good combo before she escapes.

Items (Objects) that make Ahri counter

Ahri is a very complete champion; she can easily pharm with her «Q», connect combos to enemies in love with her «E» and a great ability to move during a confrontation or team fight with her «R». So always position yourself behind your minions to avoid their combos; you’ll also need to be aware of when they use their «R» or not; to know when it’s time to attack and eliminate them once and for all, we recommend using some of the following items to further enhance your advantage.

Mercury boots

League of Legends objects

Arming your mercury boots will give you magic resistance; so that the powers won’t do so much damage to you, but not only that it also remembers its passive «which reduces by 30% the duration of stuns, slowdowns, provocations» which will diminish the effect of Ahri’s «E».


League of Legends objects

If your character is of AD damage take into account this object, which provides a shield that absorbs magic damage, allowing you to endure a little more your clashes against this magician MID.

Death Fairy Veil

League of Legends objectsThis would be the most annoying object for an Ahri; the death fairy’s veil grants a shield of spells that blocks the first enemy ability; which greatly complicates the ahri’s ability to spell you easily.

Adaptable helmet

League of Legends objects

Like the death fairy’s veil; «grants a spell shield that blocks the first enemy ability,» but with the difference that it offers magic resistance and life, a better option for champions who don’t need AP.

The best spells against an Ahri

You have two options when facing an Ahri; kill her before she escapes with a good combo «the ignite can help you do that»; or endure her combination of attacks until she can’t escape with her ulti «the barrier can give you that stamina» to end her life.

I recommend the following guides:

If Ahri seems to you to be an annoying and difficult champion to face; you probably want to learn how to face other champions of the Mid line as a Yasuoo unZed would be, two central line characters who are difficult to face and who can run their games alone if you don’t know how to play well.
