Countering
  • Since Kha'Zix deals bonus damage (and its evolved Spikes slow more) against isolated targets, the most obvious solution is to avoid being isolated. Being near a minion or turret can be enough, since they deny Kha'Zix's isolation.
    • It also means that avoiding being spread later in the game is an effective strategy. Assassins are generally countered by this since being near an allied tank can protect you from being bursted down by an assassin since they are at the risk of taking CC and dying. Against Kha'Zix in particular, this strategy is even more effective since he is even more reliant on fighting isolated enemies, compared to other assassins.
    • Just be careful if Kha'Zix's team has champions like MalphiteSquare Malphite or RumbleSquare Rumble, which can take advantage of teams that are clumped.
    • Some champions have pets or clones that can be used to deny Kha'Zix's isolation. Examples include YorickSquare Yorick with his Shepherd of Souls Mist Walkers and the Eulogy of the Isles Maiden of the Mist, or ShacoSquare Shaco with his Jack in the Box Jack in the Box and his clone created by Hallucinate Hallucinate. Despite being untargetable, AzirSquare Azir's Arise! soldiers can also negate Kha'Zix's isolation.
    • While Kha'Zix is pretty difficult to outduel if you are isolated, Kha'Zix is not a dedicated duelist. He will lose to actual duelists and some juggernauts, even when they are isolated. Examples include JaxSquare Jax and FioraSquare Fiora which, with enough items, can fight Kha'Zix even when isolated.
    • It's probably better to pick champions who can detect Kha'Zix even he is in stealth. Lee SinSquare Lee Sin & RengarSquare Rengar are probably the best choices against him because they can see Kha'Zix with Tempest Tempest & Thrill of the Hunt Thrill of the Hunt. Additionally to this is they are also durable enough to win 1v1 fights against him even if they are isolated.
