Gnar Counters

Learn Gnar's counters and discover matchups where they have an advantage! When you're starting a game of League of Legends you should always keep in mind if you'll be at an advantage or disadvantage against your opponent, so you can know whether to bully them or play safe. You can find detailed breakdowns of each matchup on CounterStats, and you can also check out some Gnar guides to see how to build and play against other champions you may find yourself up against!


This counter data is for Gnar Top in Plat+ games. The percent shown is the enemy champion's counter rating against Gnar.

Gnar's Passive
Gnar generates 4 / 7 / 11 Rage by dealing and receiving damage. At max Rage his next ability transforms him into Mega Gnar for 15 seconds.

Mini Gnar: Gain 0-20 bonus movement speed, bonus attack speed and 0-100 bonus attack range (depending on level).

Mega Gnar: Gain 100-831 max health, 3.5-54.5 armor, 3.5-63 magic resist and 8-50.5 attack damage (depending on level).

At max Rage, Gnar will automatically transform after 4 seconds if he does not use an ability. Rage decays after 13 seconds if Gnar has not dealt or received damage. Rage gain is greater when dealing damage to champions.
