Ahri is one of the most relevant mid laners in League of Legends' history. She has everything a versatile mid laner needs to swap up her role depending on what your team needs.

This is also evident by her counters, as she has some of the lowest win deltas out of any champions. Meaning that even she loses, she's not getting stomped. Although, a counter is a counter nonetheless.

Here are five of the best counters to Ahri.

5 Best Ahri Counters

5. Zoe

This is a even matchup. Zoe and Ahri have similar kits. Both have lined skill shots, projectiles that do extra damage, damage multipliers against enemies and ultimates that provide mobility. Zoe just deals more damage to Ahri in lane thanks to her ability to steal summoner spells and because she runs Electrocute instead of Glacial Augment.

4. Annie

This is another really even lane. This can go either way most of the time, but Annie's shield and stun make it a bit harder on Ahri.

3. Fizz

Most skilled Ahri players will be able to to deal Fizz, but that doesn't keep this from being an obnoxious matchup. If Fizz can dodge Ahri's charm, the trade is lost right away.

2. Vel'Koz

This might be a little surprising, since Ahri should deal enough damage to discourage Vel'Koz from dipping his arms where they don't belong. A good Vel'koz can make the most of his range and hit Ahri hard even if he takes a Charm to the face first.

1. Aurelion Sol

The Space Dragon has been on the rise as of late, and Ahri seems to be a champion that be preys on the most. Mages that try to keep their distance are easier for Aurelion Sol to hit with his passive, meaning Ahri's range is just right to take advantage of.
