Akali Counters

Learn 's counters and discover matchups where they have an advantage!

You can find detailed breakdowns of each matchup on CounterStats, and you can also check out some Akali guides to see how to build and play against other champions you may find yourself up against!


This counter data is for Akali Mid in Plat+ games. The percent shown is the enemy champion's counter rating against Akali. Counter rating is our own statistic that factors in counter kills, overall kills, early lead ratio, comeback ratio, and win percent to give the whole picture of that champion's effectiveness as a counter pick.

Akali's Abilities

Akali's Assassin's Mark

500
Akali's Passive
Akali's Passive
Akali's damaging abilities against enemy champions will mark a ring around them for 4 seconds, granting her 30 / 40 / 50 / 60% bonus movement speed for 2 seconds while moving away from them (depending on level). Subsequent damaging abilities against enemy champions while a ring is active will only refresh its duration.

If Akali leaves the ring within its duration, she regains the bonus movement speed while moving towards enemy champions for 2 seconds and gains Swinging Kama for 4 seconds, during which she cannot create another ring.

SWINGING KAMA: Akali's next basic attack's range is doubled and deals 35-182 (+0.6% bonus attack damage) (+55% of ability power) bonus magic damage (depending on level).

Akali unleashes kunais in a cone in the target direction, dealing 30 / 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 (+65% of attack damage) (+60% of ability power) magic damage to enemies hit. Targets at maximum range are also Slow icon.png slowed by 50% for 0.5 seconds.

Akali's Twilight Shroud

Akali restores 80 energy over 0.4 seconds, gains 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50% bonus movement speed that decays over 2 seconds, and detonates a smoke bomb for 5 / 5.5 / 6 / 6.5 / 7 seconds a fixed distance away in the target direction, creating a circular shroud that expands over the next 5 seconds into a ring. The shroud does not permeate terrain. While the shroud is active, Akali's maximum energy is increased by 80.

Entering the shroud renders Akali invisible, unless she is dashing.

Akali's basic attacks and abilities will break the invisibility and prevent her from entering it for 1−0.625 seconds, refreshing on subsequent attacks and casts (depending on minutes).

The marked section of Twilight Shroud's will linger for the mark's duration, even after the shroud ends.
E
Akali's Shuriken Flip
Shuriken Flip Akali's E Ability
825

16 / 14.5 / 13 / 11.5 / 10
Akali flips in the opposite direction and fires a shuriken in the target direction that stops upon hitting an enemy, dealing them 30 / 56.25 / 82.5 / 108.75 / 135 (+0.255% attack damage) (+36% of ability power) magic damage.

The shuriken marks the enemy or the last smoke section hit for 3 seconds, revealing them for the duration. While the target or smoke section is marked, Akali can reactivate Shuriken Flip.

RECAST: Akali dashes towards the marked target or smoke section, consuming the mark, regardless of distance. Against enemies it deals 70 / 131.25 / 192.5 / 253.75 / 315 (+0.595% attack damage) (+84% of ability power) magic damage upon arrival.

Akali will not flip backwards while she is immobilized or grounded.

Akali dashes 750 units in the direction of the target enemy champion, dealing 80 / 220 / 360 (+0.5% bonus attack damage) (+30% of ability power) magic damage to enemies she passes through.

If Akali hits an enemy, she flips over them, continuing the dash up to its normal 750 range but at least another 150 units, for a total maximum dash distance of 900 units if the first enemy she hit was at the maximum dash range. Perfect Execution can be recast after 2.5 seconds within 10 seconds of the first activation.

RECAST: Akali dashes 800 units in the target direction, dealing 60 / 130 / 200 (+30% of ability power) magic damage to enemies she passes through, increased by 0−200% (depending on target's missing health).
