In this guide I will be showing you how to counter Nidalee. This champion has a great pokeo in her ability Q, since the damage of this ability increases with the distance of the throw. Nidalee is highly recommended jungle, as she can increase her movement speed and weeds by 10% and 30% towards enemies marked by an ability. But here I’ll show you how to counter Nidalee, recommending a few champions.

Tips for dealing with Nidalee

  • Use scrolling champions. Scrolling can help dodge Nidalee’s Q skill.
  • Use champions with CC. A good CC can prevent a great Nidalee attack.
  • Don’t chase her into the jungle. This champion can gain a lot of movement speed and if you chase her you’ll lose that time in vain.
  • Nidalee counter champions

    The following champions are the most recommended, to be able to face Nidalee.

    Master Yi

    This champion I recommend jungle, so I can annoy Nidalee in it. Master Yi’s ultimate ability can reach Nidalee anywhere, as he earns an incredible movement speed and damage bonus. Nidalee will not be able to face Master Yi alone, as this champion is quite strong and possesses ability that counteract her.


    This champion is very good against paper champions and can give a good fight to a crowd, as her passive helps her a lot. Irelia’s passive allows her to have less weaknesses and more weaknesses than she gives to enemies. This passive depends on the number of champions Irelia faces. But against Nidalee Irelia’s E skill can stun champions who have more life than she does.


    This champion can take care of Nidalee and kill her quite easily, as she is a murderer and possesses very good skills. If Nidalee tries to attack Zed with his combo, he can attack with his ultimate to avoid that damage and make combo quite easy. Nidalee will never be able to do anything in the game against Zed, as he may die trying to attack.


    This is the ADC I highly recommend against Nidalee, as he has a very good skill that can avoid Nidalee’s combo. Tristana’s ultimate skill is a ball that can be thrown, to send enemies backwards. This ability has to be thrown against Nidalee, when she tries to jump towards Tristana.


    The most recommended support to help your team from Nidalee’s claws is called, Janna. This champion has very good skills against Nidalee, as she can prevent Nidalee from doing combo. If Nidalee approaches to jump, this champion can throw her Q or R skill, to avoid that combo.

    Nidalee counter items

    The following items have to be used against Nidalee, to have a better confrontation.

    Malmortius jaws

    Fauces de MalmortiusThis item provides a magic resistance shield that holds 300+1 of resistance to magic damage when the champion who owns it reaches -30% of his life. This item is highly recommended, as Nidalee of a Q can do a lot of damage.


    ZhonyasThis object immunizes champions who have it when activated. Nidalee’s Q ability and large combo could be dissolved by this object. If you use this item, you’ll have to wait for Nidalee to throw away his Q ability or wait for him to make a combo.

    Call of the Executioner

    This object gives serious injuries to champions who are hit by the one who owns it. If Nidalee tries to heal himself in his human form with his E ability, it cannot be healed to the proper amount, as it will be reduced to 50%.

    Rylai Crystal Scepter

    This item slows down the movement speed of enemies when they are hit by an ability. Nidalee can be very fast in the jungle, but if they manage to hit it with an ability, they can slow it down.
