Threat Champion Notes
Aatrox I choose Aatrox because he was the closest to my mouse. For real though, Cherry is 11/10 Darude against any matchup. A good Cherry player can beat any Challenger (Challenged*) opponent.

Hi, I'm The Dracomancer. currently platinum in le EUW server et this is mon premier guide ever, so I hope you'll enjoy it, and if you don't, go away.
Remember while reading that this has no other pretention than been a "guide", not a "do so because I say so" (<--- just kidding, it's completely that), everything is set in stone, something can be perfect in some situations and really awful in a different one. For those of you actually looking for a good Cherry guide (Xin Zhao*), this is probably not the best guide for you.
I'm looking forward to get some feedback, either good or great, and to keep updating this guide, taking your commentary in account.
Je suis french, so mon English isn't my native language. Please excuse me if I don't write it très bien.

About Cherry

Cherry is a feeding carry. As long as you synergize well with your Challenger Mordekaiser duo, you always win games. Make sure you give the kill to the support, or else Mordekaiser will not even carry you. Slowly get the ADC fed, but dont rush it.

*Large amount of damage late game
*Insane swag
*He has a really bad insec ult
*All of his kit is AoE making him a monster in jungle fight when the opponent team is packed
*Easy to feed with
*Can pop a death every 30 seconds
*Good roaming power
*Is the god of bunnies

*When getting fed heavily, it can be tricky to catch up
*Still very buggy, she has no mechanics and is really predictable
*Very bad
*Hard to play, with all the bunnies roaming around

Currently, you Cherry can have any runes, as long as you take no defensive ones and movespeed quints.

Red: A primary color
Yellow: Another primary color
Blue: My favorite color
Quints (purple): 3x Flat movespeed

I'm still trying to decide a better choice for the primary colors, but everything else is pretty much set in stone, do this or get rekt.

So basically, the goal is to die really fast and get your Mordekaiser pentakills. You can do this by taking 9/0/21 masteries or 0/0/30 for the fastest movespeed, highest cooldown reduction, and a bunch of raging teammates and one happy Mordekaiser.

PS: If you take ANY defensive masteries, you will take longer to kill, this may be a problem into late game.

Skill Sequence

Doesn't really matter because I'm French.

This is your passive. After waiting 3 seconds, you become invisible and teleport to the nearest turret, enemy turret or allied.

This is your first skill (Q). Cherry falls over after a short channel, damaging enemies and stunning them for 3 seconds. This skill is very useful because the enemy team reports that player for afk since they are stunned so long.

This is your second skill (W). It passively gives you 10%/20%/30%/40%/50% bonus movespeed. Upon activation Xin <<Cherry>> Zhao rampages across the map and gains 900-range on her hitbox, making her impossible to miss. She is invulnerable to damage while this is active, however, it is never active. However, you can combo this as Q-W to stun the entire team, forcing them to disconnect which leads to an easy victory.

This is your third skill (E). It's like Shaco's UltimateExcept it's useless. You basically just make a clone. However, since this clone is made by a failure of a scientist, the one and only, Heimerdinger (the ****er), it is black and not a complete replica. Thus, enemies can tell which is real.

And finally, Cherry's ultimate (R). We have all seen Karthus's ultimate, Requiemand Soraka's ultimate, Wishand now we mix the 2. Upon activation, Cherry kills all her teammates, but don't worry, since you have already used your W-E-Q combo, their entire team is afk and you can just go in and carry the game single-handedly.

Just build every boot, this is very good build and is highly recommended.

Also remember, no matter your score, or if you're not the only one feeding, just use your W-E-Q combo followed up by (R) to erase your team as well to ensure victory. Recent teammates such as Celine, Anshul, and Pride say, "She's one of the worst teammates I've ever had" and "She keeps dying lik wtf?" Thanks for reading this, and watch for my upcoming guide(s)!
