In this guide I will be showing you how to counter Shyvana. This League of Legends champion is quite annoying, as she has a great passive that increases her armor and magic resistance every time she kills a Dragon. In addition to the Dragon’s upgrades, he can also upgrade Shyvana with his passive. But here I’ll show you how to counter Shyvana, with a few tips and recommended champions to face her.

Tips for dealing with Shyvana

  • Prevents Shyvana from doing the Dragon. Shyvana and her passive might improve a lot in the game, because if she kills a Dragon she modifies her armor and magic resistance.
  • Use champions with CC. This will help a lot, because when Shyvana approaches with her ultimate do nothing.
  • Use scrolling champions. This will help dodge Shyvana’s skills, as some are melee or distance.
  • Shyvana counter champions

    The following champions are the most recommended to counter Shyvana.


    This champion’s skills are good enough to face Shyvana. Vi’s Q skill charges her fist to neutralize her enemy by causing a dent. This Q skill can help steal a Dragon or prevent Shyvana from entering with his Ultimate. Vi’s W skill is also another point in his favor against Shyvana, as it can shatter the armor.


    This champion can poke Shyvana without any problems or move away from her with his W, as it allows him to move at speed. Teemo’s Q skill helps him against Shyvana’s Q skill, as he can blind her and avoid her 2 quick attacks. Shyvana’s W ability burns and increases her movement speed by 3 sg, but Teemo’s W or R ability can help.


    This champion can poke or stop Shyvana from any attempt with her ultimate. Ahri’s ability E or R helps her when Shyvana approaches with her ultimate ability. Ahri’s ability E allows enemy champions to be enchanted, leaving them in love for a while. Also Ahri’s skill R allows him to move away from enemies to 3 different zones. These skills can help you steal a Dragon from Shyvana.


    This champion is the ADC I highly recommend against Shyvana, as she has very good skills against her. Ashe’s E skill can from time to time watch over the Dragon, as it can be thrown from a great distance and prevent it from doing so. Ashe’s ultimate skill allows enemies to be stunned, which is a good skill for Shyvana’s ultimate.


    This champion can counter Shyvana’s abilities. Lulu’s Q ability can neutralize enemy champions with several seconds, helping to slow down Shyvana’s movement. Lulu’s W or R skill can help Shyvana stay away from his ultimate. Lulu’s W allows her to be turned into an animal when she is thrown at an enemy and the R lifts them through the air to nearby enemies.
