Shen Counters

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


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