Threats & Synergies
Favorable match-up. You have to play around Amumu, Do NOT try to burst him unless he has no armor or health. Bait out his aftershock's proc (Bandage Toss) before you use your abilities on him. You have to win early against him or he will out scale you. Force pressure on him early with invades or counter ganks and track her!
Even match-up. Watch out for when she gets ninja tabi's. Outplay her by dodging her E (Hookshot/Wall Dive), using bushes as a way to hop away from your current location.
Even match-up. She is heavily reliant on her early finished items to duel rengar. She will heavily outscale you in a 1v1 unless you are super fed and can one-shot her. Force pressure on her early with invades or counter ganks and track her!
Difficult match-up. Unkillable if you're running a heavy ad comp because he WILL stack armor. Your best bet is to snowball from laners and vertical jungle against him and avoid the side he's on. Rush Executioners after Tiamat if you want to stand a chance in a duel against him.
Even match-up. He has horrible clear for most of early game, find ways to exploit this depending on where he starts and counter gank him or invade Ekko. Once he has 6 he becomes harder to shut down and will eventually be difficult for you to one-shot unless you're super ahead
Favorable match-up. Rengar can get the early lead. Keep in mind Elise's threat is in her finished Runic Echoes and afterwards where she has potential to 1-Shot you. Avoid Face-checking!
Easy match-up. You have one-shot potential on her throughout the game once you finish your lethality item. Make sure to deep ward her jungle otherwise farm for free without you being able to track her movements. Your ultimate renders her stealth useless.
Even match-up. Fiddlesticks will easily out farm you due to his innate ability to clear multiple camps at once. Use your ult late game to reveal his location and pick off the priority target.
Even match-up. Depending on how gragas builds, this match-up could be easy or a nightmare. If gragas is building full ap you can oneshot him. Be sure to rush edge of night otherwise he can cancel your combo with his E (Body Slam).
Difficult match-up. Graves will never lose to you 1v1 due to his Quickdraw. His core build is black cleaver and he will buy ninja tabi's against you. Maintain constant pressure of the map and gank/ward your jungle entrance for invades. Do not let Graves farm for free.
Favorable match-up. Hecarim has very weak early 1v1 until he finishes his trinity force. Use this time to contest scuttle crabs and counter gank.
Easy match-up. He's extremely weak against counter jungling and his bushes will give you free leaps. His core item relies on building support items which offers him zero 1v1 capabilities.
Easy match-up. Your early game 1v1 is stronger however he excels at ganking and you have to track him and make sure to keep his jungle warded and ping your teammates.
Difficult match-up. Do not try to use Empowered Savagery him. Make use of the root from Empowered Bola and kite him. He will outscale you all game. His weakness is his lack of ability to pressure early game.
Favorable match-up. Maintain a lead against Karthus and you will be able to one-shot him almost all game until he gets zhonyas. His strength is in his ability to clear camps. Keep in mind of his ults before ganking.
Favorable match-up. He has zero kill pressure early game against you. Make sure the 1v1 or skirmish against him is worth it early otherwise he wins by getting closer to his form. Rengar excels at 1v1 and skirmishes against Kayn.
Even match-up. Depending on the build, Kha'zix can be go even or become a nightmare. Kha'zix does well with bruiser items and ninja tabi's which makes it impossible for Rengar to duel. Effective ganks and invades early will help in keeping Kha'zix down.
Favorable match-up. Kindred builds no form of defensive items which makes one-shots very easy. Avoid her early game unless you are ahead of her or finished your lethality item otherwise she can kite you.
Difficult match-up. Do not engage on him unless you are capable of one-shotting him which will require gold lead or he is lower hp than you. Once he gets ninja tabi's and black cleaver it is very difficult to duel him.
Favorable match-up. She''s very easy to snowball off of for the most part just make sure you're fighting in a bush otherwise she will kite you out or you use your root on her. Mirror her early jungle path so you could match all of her ganks.
Even match-up. Master yi is capable of killing you for many stages of the game. Rengar is unable to burst through yi's meditate unless with a huge gold lead or by a surprise. Do not let yi farm for free and shut him down early by mirroring his early start and force skirmishes.
Favorable match-up. Rengar can one-shot nidalee for most or all of the game assuming nidalee doesn't build armor. Nidalee's only power is in her early game. Force skirmishes near river and in her jungle with lane priority.
Even match-up. Do not counter gank against Nocturne early. You outscale him. Remind bot lane to play safe when Nocturne's ult is off cooldown. Once you finish your lethality item, you're able to invade him and one-shot him.
Nunu & Willump
Even match-up. Nunu is VERY weak early game. Make sure to mirror his path and force skirmishes. Nunu will prioritize dragon's early game. Make sure to either take it when his bot lane recalls/is shoved in OR shut down their mid / bot early game so you can win the dragon fight.
Difficult match-up. He will never lose to you 1v1 unless he rushes warriors first and is low. Be mindful that the lower hp he is, the higher the DPS he will be dishing out. Make sure you can one-shot him otherwise run. He is a great farmer and invader look to vertical jungling in this match-up.
Favorable match-up. Rammus has a horrible clear and dueling potential. Make sure once he Powerballs into you or taunts you to save your abilities because his Aftershock will proc as well as his defensive ball curl which will mitigate most of your damage.
Even match-up. Make sure to save your Battle Roar when you engage on her otherwise she will chunk you. She is weak before she recalls on the first clear so you have to mirror her path and look to counter gank. Do not be predictable with your leap otherwise your damage will get canceled.
Favorable match-up. Sejuani is very weak early however she has strong skirmishes due to her being able to lock you down and have someone else burst you.
Difficult match-up. Sett will beat you in a 1v1. Avoid matching his path. Focus on building a lead through farming and ganking.
Favorable match-up. Rengar can one-shot Shaco easily and smite the Jack-In-The-Box to prevent the fear from activating. Shaco's deceive can be revealed with Rengar's ultimate.
Even match-up. Do not let Shyvana free farm and take dragons uncontested. Shyvana is weak without dragon form and has weak gank potential.
Even match-up. Make sure to maintain a lead against Skarner. He has bad clear and his only way of snowballing is through ganks. Do not force 1v1's against Skarner post 6 otherwise he can lock you down and have his teammates come.
Easy match-up. Do not let her land her e/w combo on you. Keep vision control of the river. She is weak in 2v2's if you have ultimate ready. Make sure to invade her and kill her when she uses her abilities on camps.
Even match-up. Trundle has horrible wave clear however excellent dueling potential. Force fights pre-6 until he builds defensively. Keep in mind he has the ability to steal your AD/Resistances/Health. Trundle's strength is in his ganks/objective control/invades.
Easy match-up. Make sure to inform teammates of Twitch potential level 2 cheese gank. Mirror his path. Most Twitch will start red buff first and gank. Invade twitch often and use ultimate to reveal his stealth.
Even match-up. Do not engage on him unless you have bushes readily avaiable or teammates nearby. He will win 1v1's and skirmishes. He has very little utility and gank potential so make sure to deep ward and ping teammates of potential ganks. His weakness is in his team fighting capabilities.
Even match-up. Rengar is stronger than Vi during the first clear however once Vi reaches level 6 she can out trade you. Keep in mind Vi has the ability to cancel your burst and lock you in place.
Difficult matchup. For the most part Volibear will beat you in a 1v1. He has naturally high damage as well as he's impossible to one-shot. His skirmishes are very strong. Path on the opposite side of him to avoid scuttle skirmishes and counter ganks.
Even match-up. For most of the early game rengar will beat Warwick 1v1 until Warwick has his ultimate. Use Empowered Bola against Warwick's Fear and make sure to be in a bush against him.
Difficult match-up. Wukong has many ways to cancel rengar's burst and will outscale rengar in 1v1's. Rengar's early game is stronger and clear is better however. Make sure to counter gank and snowball that into a lead. Use ultimate and bait the clone/ultimate before leaping on him.
Favorable match-up. Xin has bad clear and weak team fights. Make sure to build a lead through farming/ganking as well as early 1v1's where xin loses to rengar.
Favorable match-up. Zac is fairly weak early and offers nothing in a skirmish. Make sure to mirror him and counter gank and contest scuttles. Do not let him take neutral objectives without being contested.
Difficult match-up. Can negate all of your damage and out trade you. His weakness is in his clear however he'll look to gank often. Make sure to invade due to the nature of his unhealthy clear.
He can speed you up during ult and also give you a free revive.
When you go for a pick in team fights he can save your life.
Both your ultimates synergizes well with each other.
When rengar ult's, people tend to clump up to protect the adc from getting hopped on.
Can save you after you leap onto enemies.
