Threats & Synergies
When using Draven, players usually cannot beat the speed of Akali's movement so it is really difficult for Draven to auto attack onto Akali.
Easy One Shot as MF has nothing to counter Akali
EASY PZ, Sit behind minions and dodge her spears. Free Kill as that's all Nidalee does.
Jhin has to reload his gun and has really less Attack Speed.
Just like Jhin with reloading gun. Akali does way more damage than Graves as you can use your ult to sneak behind him and do all your abilities onto him.
Olaf has CC that Akali counters. When Olag uses his raging thunder abilities, hide in your shroud as his abilities are on CD. Take your chance and kill him.
You out hop her. Even if Tristana rocket jumps away, you have your shroud to move and your ult to jump from minion to minion. Plus, I suppose you can even use flash.
After being nerfed (no wave clear), Akali counters Taliyah so badly that Taliyah players will be tilted.
Dodging his cards will be easy as Akali has more movement speed than TF. As he stuns you with his yellow card, quickly hide in your shroud.
Even though Sona can poke people with high AP damage, you can still kill her as she has really low HP and you out damage her.
Aurelion Sol's abilities are nothing but trash. If he tries to stun you, shroud out of the way.
Akali counters most ADCs. Corki is one of them. Easy Kill.
To be honest, Karthus is just straight up the noobest champion ever. Idk why Riot even created this type of champion. Akali counters him just like Aurelion Sol. But dodge his Qs by using shroud.
Just a regular ADC that Akali counters.
Easy Kill as Lux is almost the same as Sona. If you can dodge Lux's snares almost all the time, then it's GG on your lane.
After Morgana uses her Q, burst in on her and that's an easy kill :)
After hitting level 6, you can basically one shot him.
Ziggs has bombs that will annoy the crap out of you. Hit level 6 and kill this bomb head.
After using his stun, go in for him with your ult but make sure to dodge his abilities as they do insane damage towards you.
Shroud out of Veigar's E and burst in on him when you have the chance.
Use Zhonya to avoid his ult and shroud to avoid his abilities.
Avoid his fears, burst in on him at level 6 as he is a one shot.
Avoid his barrels and go in on him at level 6.
Shroud out of his ult. Poke him until half health bar. Take your chance and go in.
Just like Sona. Avoid her Q and W and go straight in as she is a one shot.
Out run Kassadin with Ult and Shroud. Dodge his abilities as they will harm you.
Try making Kayle pop his ult. With no Kayle ult, you can easily kill him.
Avoid her Q and R. This is an easy kill.
Shroud to avoid his slices and ult. You will outdamage this crocodile.
His abilities take time to cast onto you so Akali's ult will come handy as you will be behind him doing all your damage.
Just another easy ADC kill.
Avoid his trap and Q. Akali will do more wipe out Viktor as Viktor takes time to cast his abilities.
Avoid her roots and it will be an easy kill.
Shroud out of his trap, You will outdamage Yorick easily.
Shroud when Jax has his stun about to go off. In shroud, Jax will have a difficult time trying to auto attack you.
His ult will block you from going onto him.
He will sometimes outpoke you. Always dodge his abilities or else he will stun you.
Avoid knock ups and silence. If not avoided, this will eventually be a free kill for Cho.
Avoid her pokes as he poison is really strong.
He will outpoke you with his guns and his abilities. Try going in when he has low health and mana especially when his guns aren't around.
Kata's ult can still work even if you're in your shroud hiding. Try escaping by jumping onto enemy minion or shrouding to escape.
Knock ups and taunts will counter you a lot so be sure to hide in your shroud when he does this.
Stealth will counter you as Kha could be anywhere. Kha also does as much damage as Akali.
Avoid most of Vel's knock ups. You can easily escape his ult by shrouding out of his ult's range.
Avoid his traps and Q. Get mostly magic penetration as Swain is pretty tanky.
Stuns will counter Akali especially those orbs. Get Mercury's Treads and avoid most of Syndra's abilities. She has high CD so go in right away after she casts an ability.
This bird's ult has a huge range which will counter you. Rebirth will annoy the crap out of you so be sure the poke Anivia a lot. Be sure to waste her Rebirth as this is the thing that protects her.
Avoid her stuns by shrouding when she is about to stun you. Tibbers is the main problem you will face against Annie.
Shroud when Kennen is about to activate his W. This is because he may be about to stun you. When he uses ult, you MUST shroud out of his ult or in his ult or else Kennen will have the advantage of kills over you.
Avoid his time bombs as two bombs on you will stun you.
Zed's W and damage together will create a huge counter towards you. Avoid his abilities by shrouding some place safe.
Ahri's charm will counter you. Shroud immediately when this happens.
Diana has really hard CC so dodge all of her Qs as most likely she will ult onto you after hitting Q on you.
Irelia's W will stun you after she hops onto you. Irelia has insane healing so don't underestimate her.
Lissandra's mini rework a few months ago is now a threat to Akali. This is because Lissandra can now cast more abilities as she has bonus mana.
LeBlanc's snares are really powerful. Avoid her Qs as that creates an ability onto you that LB can auto and do damage.
Pantheon will outpoke you as he can hop onto you and stun while hitting E onto you. When he is about to hop onto you, you must immediately shroud.
Yasuo is not a big counter to Akali. Yasuo's windwall will only counter you throwing a mark onto him. This is your main move. So try fooling him by wasting his windwall as he has high CD for W.
Gragas is a fat man with all these kinds of barrels. So be sure to dodge them. If he ults onto you, make sure to shroud and ult jump from minion to minion to escape if his ult pushed you all the way back to enemy lane.
Ekko has way more damage than you as his ult can save him many times.
Malz is like the most annoying champion of all time as he has a noob ult that will suppress you.
Jayce will outpoke Akali. Jayce is also tanky but does high damage so this will be a hard champion to kill.
New rework is way too OP. Urgot will out tank you and out poke you as Urgot's new W is OP.
Riven is tanky yet also high damage with lots of CC. Avoid most of her abilities!
His abilities will let him see you in your shroud. Lee Sin may be the hardest jungler you will have to deal with as he is like an annoying bug who won't come off you. Avoid his Q to be followed :)
Polymorphs are really annoying as you can't really do anything about it.
Talon's abilities will do a lot more damage than expected. Unlike Zed you can kill and die, Talon can just ult away.
Wu Kong's W will fool you and his ult will mess all of your abilities up.
Vlad is just annoying when he is in his W. It is hard to lock onto him when he is in W.
