Poppy Counters

Learn '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 Poppy guides to see how to build and play against other champions you may find yourself up against!


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

Every 13 (10 at level 7 and 7 at level 13) seconds, Poppy's next attack throws her buckler, gaining 350 range and dealing an additional 20 - 180 (depending on level) magic damage. The buckler ricochets off the target, landing nearby. Poppy can pick it up to gain 15 / 17.5 / 20% shield, and enemies can step on it to destroy it.

The buckler automatically returns to Poppy if it kills the target.

The range and knock back distance increase with charge duration. An uncharged swing deals 100 / 150 / 200 (+0.45 per bonus attack damage) physical damage and knocks up for 0.75 seconds.
