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.

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.
