Countering

  • Try to destroy  Malphite's  Granite Shield before using your nukes to ensure you deal your full damage.
    • In the lane, try to harass  Malphite to break his  Granite Shield and prevent its regeneration.
    • You might even be able to zone  Malphite a little while he waits for the shield to refresh.
  • Don't even try to go against  Malphite as a melee autoattacker because that is exactly what he excels against with his  Brutal Strikes armor and attack damage steroid and  Ground Slam attack speed reduction. These alone make him heavily favored in a trade, not to mention his  Granite Shield.
  •  Malphite's strengths can be effectively countered by going double AP, as opposed to the usual bruiser meta.
  • Note whether or not  Malphite is spamming his abilities (especially  Seismic Shard) as he isn't exactly the most mana efficient champion around.
  • When chasing or being chased, it may be a good idea to hold on to any movement speed increasing buffs you may have until after he has used  Seismic Shard, as increasing your speed will also increase the amount of movement speed he steals and essentially nullify your boost.
  • Wait until the effect of his  Brutal Strikes wears off before continuing to attack  Malphite as it gives him armor.
  • If you are using a champion whose primary damage source is from auto-attacks, try to stay out of range of  Ground Slam, as this will reduce your damage significantly.
  •  Malphite will usually build armor to make the effect of his  Ground Slam more useful. Consider getting a Last Whisper to counter this.
    • Since  Malphite is more likely to build armor than health, he will be very susceptible to high burst from magic damage. Consider this when picking champions to counter him.
  • Don't neglect the burst damage from  Unstoppable Force in a 1v1. It has high base damage, not to mention a high ability power ratio.
  • Avoid grouping together with your allies to decrease the impact of an  Unstoppable Force.
