Bane is one of the most versatile heroes in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.

With his distinctive skill set, the octopus-like pirate can excel in the jungle, side lanes, or mid lane. Additionally, he offers flexibility in building either a physical or magic-focused item set.

Shark Bite empowers his basic attack each time he casts a skill, while Crab Claw Cannon deals significant physical damage to the initial target and the enemy it bounces to.

His versatility extends beyond physical damage. With Ale, he gains increased movement speed, receives healing, and deals magical damage. Furthermore, his ultimate, Deadly Catch, inflicts a powerful burst of magic damage while knocking enemies airborne along its path.

Still, you can effectively deal with this fighter/mage hero by using one of these strong counters against him.

Chou proves to be a formidable counter to Bane, thanks to his lethal combo and reliable crowd control abilities.

Select Purify or Flicker so you can escape using Wings by Wings if he manages to get near you. Moreover, consider having Winter Truncheon to survive his combo when your battle spell is on cooldown.

If Pharsa is not available, Vale and Selena are viable alternatives. They possess similar long-range abilities and crowd control that can effectively neutralize him.


An exceptionally agile assassin, Hayabusa can easily close in on Bane, evade his abilities, and quickly eliminate him.

To initiate your assault, cast Ninjutsu: Quad Shadow to narrow the gap against him. Hit him with Ninjutsu: Phantom Shuriken and basic attacks to apply four Shadow Marks.

Finally, trigger Ougi: Shadow Kill to deliver the killing blow.

If he uses Deadly Catch when you approach, retreat by jumping to a Quad Shadow, then return using the same skill. You can also use Shadow Kill to dodge his ultimate.
