When Chou was officially released in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, many were quick to speculate that he would be a priority pick not just in ranked games, but in pro play as well.
And that came true pretty quickly. He is considered to be one of the most balanced heroes in the game. His abilities are straightforward and easy to learn, but playing him at a competitive level requires patience and timing.

He is a force to be reckoned with in the EXP lane position, but some pro players like M4 World Champion and ECHO roamer Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera have mastered him as a roaming tank.
Which heroes can you use to deal with the slippery Kung Fu boy?
Here are three heroes that will stop Chou in his tracks
Silvanna is a great counter to Chou, provided she lands Imperial Justice, for he can cancel it with Shunpo.
Silvanna can out-damage him in a 1v1 situation thanks to Spiral Strangling. She can also close the gap with Cosmetic Lance if he tries to get away.
Overall, this is more of a skill matchup, but Silvanna has the necessary kit to make it hard for him to keep up all throughout the game.
Uranus‘ sheer tankiness and survivability can annoy even the most skilled Chou player.
Even if he unleashes his barrage of abilities, Uranus can outmaneuver him with Consecration and Transcendent Ward.
Once Uranus’ passive stacks are full, he can counter-initiate and finish him off with a fully stacked Ionic Edge.
Dubbed the rival of Chou, he can really counter the Kung Fu Boy with his damaging abilities.
Paquito is a very difficult matchup for him, especially in the laning phase, for he has strong burst damage in the early game.
Champ Stance is a game changer against him, as it can enhance all his abilities to deal more damage, and even reset all his skills.
