Tips Against Cho'Gath in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

I Am Goliath says “This matchup is usually very easy, you should get an early merc treads in this matchup as they're very strong against Cho, I usually go cleaver and death's dance as my first two big items here and once you get them he just doesn't have the damage to keep up, between conqurer and your passive leg procs it's just too much damage/healing for him, make sure you're trying your best to get your passive leg procs in this matchup as well as trying your best to dodge his Q which should be easy most of the time. I also usually hard push cho'gath in early game since his sustain is fairly high I don't bother trading very much I just play for a CS lead to get my core items quicker, obviously be careful with this and it is dependent on who the enemy jungler is playing.”

Ayanleh says “Easy matchup at all stages of the game. You have so much health later on in the game so his true damage will take little of your health early is easy and conqueror + passive just makes it easier.”

Sovereign Kitten says “While fighting or simply laning, you should always be positioning yourself away from his angle to avoid his spikes that slow you. The second you let him line up a spike-slow, you will be swiftly met with your death through his knock up and more often if he is running Glacial Augment. He is a high HP and sustain stacking champion through killing minions, so preventing his sustain makes killing him easier. If he misses the knock up and can't land a slow, you can simply run him down with auto attacks and burst from your (Q). Be aware if he is running Glacial as it is a huge threat and you really need to play well. ”

YoungTact says “Take Conqueror here. Apply Lane harass combo and dodge his Q to the best of your ability. Apply 1 Lane Harass Combo once you are level 3 and then once its just about to tick out go for an extended trade. ”
Pathetic Singed says “Q is easy to dodge and his W doesn't stop your Q toggle. Meme champ into Singed, just don't get R'd whilst trolling under tower.”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - EASY LANE. DODGE KNOCK UPS. FREE AFTER LEVEL 3. CONQUEROR SORCERY. PHASE RUSH IF YOU CAN'T DODGE KNOCK UP. BE CAREFUL LOW HP. Cho’Gath is a somewhat annoying champion to deal with. The only thing you have to know in this lane is how to dodge his knock up. His knock up ruins your all ins as it slows you after and it allows him to combo you and walk away since you will be silenced. His level 1 cheese might be surprising at times with his e if he has ignite as well. You also have to make sure to HARD win trades because he will be able to sustain back with CS. This is another lane where you have to use great wave control. Cho'Gath can oneshot you with 1 combo if you are low HP and it is post 6 so be careful when trading with im. ALWAYS LAND YOUR Qs. If you aren’t careful, you might keep trading with him and then he would just heal it all back up because of his passive, leaving you in a position where he can take you out before you can react. If he builds AP, his cheesing ability will be stronger as he just completely chunks you out at range when you let him knock you up. But this also means that you kill him with 1 combo so if you just dodge the knock up of an AP Cho'Gath, hes a free kill. If he is building tank, it is just a free lane. But he miiight get to a point where he is too tanky to kill quickly. Just don’t die in stupid ways, don’t let him knock you up and most importantly, don’t let him farm. Taking ghost makes this lane so much easier as it lets you very easily dodge the knock up. Not to mention how Cho’Gath is very immobile so if he steps out of line, you can just Ghost and run him down. Just be careful when diving him as Cho’gath is great at defending dives. His gank set up is completely dependent on whether he lands his knock up or not. To be honest that is just his entire laning phase. If he can land those, he can go even with you. If he misses them, he is free food. It might be a good idea to ward up some of the brushes or at the very least stop him from going in them because if you have no vision of him, you cannot see him do the Rupture animation which makes dodging very difficult. After level 3 or so, he should never be able to beat you. He does scale up to be a monster giga lategame in a sense that trying to kill him, is a massive waste of time as it takes too long. Just stack 5 off of him and then murder the enemy team.”

PH45 says “When facing Cho'Gath in lane, pay attention to his position when he uses Vorpal Spikes. Don't get hit by the spikes to avoid the slow and if he fights you with them make sure to dodge the damage with your Counter Strike. Key here is to dodge his Rupture and just all in him after that since he loses to you after that unless you are miles behind him (which shouldn't happen). Just be careful if you are low HP as he can quickly delete you with his Feast. Overall one of the easier matchups for Jax.”

Kippari says “Cho has abusable cooldowns early and is fairly squishy, if you zone him away from farm to deny his passive you can get early kills easily. Just remember he becomes a monster later on.”

Kartagoo says “One of the hardest Tanks to beat. If he goes full Tank: "You are gonna have a bad time." His passive gives him insane Sustain and his trading Potential is insane with Grasp. My tip is either pushing him in and help your other Laners or ask for Ganks and get Spectre's Cowl and Cleaver. When hes 6 and you are below 50% respect his execute damage its much better at Lv 6 than yours because he has an Indicator when it kills you! In late Game you kinda the upper Hand cuz you easily gonna get an 2K Damage ult at Lv 11 on a 6K Cho, so save your ult for him.”

Defensivity1 says “Tank or AP are both easy lanes as long as you sidestep his Q.”

Drake6401 says “He will poke at you early lane. This is another dodge matchup. Avoid his Q the most since he will max that first. Use E to engage while avoiding his knockup in the process. He will silence you but you still out damage him with a combo in a short trade. If you bait out his W and dodge his Q. Absolutely try and kill this guy. Buy Merc treads and use the Tenacity rune to heavily negate his CC. In many cases, he will look to silence you before using Q so you can't dash it. This is much harder to avoid and all you can do is try to be unpredictable with your movements. If he does land this combo, still look for a fight pre 6. he will most certainly back off so not all cases will be good to follow him After level 6, you have to be very careful with his ultimate. Never fight him at low HP at this point. Use your lane sustain to heal up, but you may just have to back if he zones you off the wave. He can't miss his ultimate so there's not many ways around it to access the wave.”

qasddsa says “Dodge his Q and be careful about his silence if you're in melee range. Max Q and E - late game the execute on E will be incredibly useful in killing him. Try to time your ult to when you think he will ult you if you're low. Definitely rush a Blade of the Ruined King.”
Raen says “Try to all in him at level 1 with E. Use Counter Strike when he uses his E and be careful when you are on low hp cuz he can flash R and get you down easily.”
RTO says “Really easy pre 6. Easy to dodge his abilities with your e. You need to establish dominance early because once he gets his core, then you will have hard times. Silence can also be really annoying. Watch the animation for it and you can dodge it. ”

Persicum777 says “Cho's sustain early may keep him in lane long enough to make you over extend, his kit lets him play safe so either freeze and get repeat ganks on him or shove faster then he can handle after tiamat, if hes going tank cho that option is alot easier ap cho may require some burying to keep him out of the game.”

PH45 says “Sustains mana as well so you will run out of mana faster in this matchup. He has no escapes though outside his summoners so when your jungler comes just CC him and you should be good to go.”

Anoying bro5 says “Be careful of Cho silencing you before knocking you up ;). If he does this, try not to parry the knock up but use it on his ult or silence in general. This isn't that hard of a match up if you work around both of those abilities.”
[10.19] Fiora Handbook (Top / Mid) (+ Match-up Guide) by Anoying bro5 | Fiora Player
iZeal says “Cho'Gath's early game is pretty much entirely focussed around his sustain. Slowpush so he loses a lot of minions and is forced to farm from afar with his mana-intensive abilities or freeze the wave on your side of the map to deny Cho the ability to trade with you, then run him down. Don't get hit by his Qs. If he goes the Glacial Augment route he is extremely squishy but can deny you the ability to teamfight properly with his spammable slows. DBlade or Dshield, Swifties are helpful vs Glacial Cho, otherwise proceed with Phage.”
[Patch 10.19] iZeal's Darius compendium by iZeal | Darius Player
PH45 says “He will sustain a lot due to his passive but shouldn't really ever kill you unless you misplay hard. Poke him with Q and when his Q is on CD you can try to all in him since that is his only disengage. Cho is really vulnerable to ganks so ask your jungler to come for free kills if he keeps extending a lot.”

Justkb says “You can abuse Cho if he uses his Q too frequently within the wave. Once you have a freeze it is really easy to run him down with a Flash E, W, AA Q to then finish him off near his tower. This has a high success rate when Cho is at about 60% HP.”

Smartest2 says “A fairly easy and boring lane. Cho'Gath doesn't have much kill potential on us at any point in the game, and his beefiness lets him just walk out of fights without dying. The win condition of this lane is to maintain high cs, and deny him as much as possible. A 40cs lead would be a good place to be in.”
[S10]Smartest2's Guide to Carrying Solo Queue with Illaoi by Smartest2 | Illaoi Player
iZeal says “He has no way of dodging your Qs or Ws. Don't let him sustain and dodge his Qs. While he becomes incredibly tanky and disruptive later on, you can always catch him out. Be aware of your cooldowns while silenced and buffer your abilities so your Q doesn't run out.”

Rhoku says “Cho'Gath CAN be problematic but is mostly free food for Mordekaiser. You Liandry Rylai combo works extremely well against him, your ult does wonders as he is just a big ball of stats for you to steal from, and in lane, all he can even do into you is sit in bush, hit his abilities and cheese a kill or two which wont even help. Just dodge the knock up and a pull should equal a kill every time.”

LoLReal says “No threat to us at all. Spells can be annoying to dodge since we are immobile but we win at all points in the game. Straight forward match up. Trade hard.”
LoLReal says “Free lane. Incredibly easy to deal with.”
Ravenborne says “Depends on his build. If he goes AP, there is a chance he will just poke you down from afar with Q and then go for the final all-in, so be sure to try and dodge his Q. If he goes Tank, this matchup is very easy because he lacks the Damage to kill you early on and all you have to do is play around his cooldowns and his Q knockup - if you manage to to dodge his Q you will most likely get a free trade or even a kill.”

ERNESTSAURUS says “CONQUEROR / SPELLBOOK SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT = Cho'Gath is an inmobile tank with a lot of CC that can deal with Nasus pretty well specially since he has a true damage scaling ultimate. In laning phase you should try to predict where he's going to Q whenever he smashes the floor with his "foot" and then look to dodge it, if you wait for the circle to appear, its going to become more difficult since Nasus doesn't have a dash and is also inmobile. Cho'gath either go for a full AP Build or a Tank Build. If he goes Full AP just be carefull of his poke, he can deal a lot of damage to you that if your not playing properly, you won't be able to outsustain him, the downsite for him is that he is not tanky at all, so whenever you get some items and some MR you will be able to run him down as long as you start the fight with your ult. If he goes Full tank is the complete oposite, he won't have enough poke to get you out of lane, but he will be able to fight you in the midgame and if player properly, kill you. Once you are both full build, in a late game teamfight look to peel your team, usually Cho'gath will go for your ADC or a Squishy target in your team.”

chrisorion says “Transcendence + Gathering Storm/Nullifying Orb if AP jungler and start Doran's Blade. His Vorpal Spikes are most of his damage early. Parry knockup if they're bad, predict parry silence if they're good as good Cho'Gaths silence before the knockup. You win extended trades pre and post 6 but post 6 remember to ult earlier than you usually would as you want to be at about 50% so he doesn't kill you with ultimate. Go Manamune if he goes Bramble Vest and Ninja Tabi. You can go Blade of the Ruined King”

Shumair says “This champ will just want to farm out the lane against you as he has no kill pressure on Mordekaiser. You can simply freeze the wave, sit back and watch him get measly amounts of CS with his vorpal spikes. If he ever dares walk up and touch your wave, you should E-Q him and run him down. His escape is not the best so if you want to snowball, you can but do it before he gets tanky.”
Fan22 says “cho´ gath its a tank like you and deals magic damague, however what makes him a deadly threat for you its the big True damague he does with his ultimate, and also he has good poke. abbysal mask its better than spirit visague against him since the catalyst item gives you extra sustain (+mana and hp) so you can stay as healthy as chogath with his passive. try to not let him farm for free so he doesnt sustain. remember his Q has high mana cost. ”

NickCola Tesla says “Strictly a farm lane. Neither of you can really kill the other without Jungle interference. You'll both just be looking to stack HP, but he's more useful late game because of his True Damage nuke! Once he completes his build and gets the Gargoyle Stoneplate, he'll be able to one shot your backline with his ult. If he goes the AP route, he'll be poking you down, but an Adaptive Helm will do the trick against his Vorpal Spikes. Just make sure you dodge his Rupture, and don't get cheesed early on. If your backline can dodge his skillshots against the AP build, his ultimate won't be scaling nearly as much!”
"I! AM! WAR!" - NickColaTesla's Sion Guide by NickCola Tesla | Sion Player
StrikeX114 says “With point-and-click CC anywhere near him in his Q, it is extremely difficult to play anywhere remotely safe to him. Add to that his low health execution ability in his ultimate, and any damage you take stacks the odds greater in your opponent's favor. Do not hesitate to utilize your summoner spells if you deem it necessary to do so.”

wallobear53 says “Cho’Gath is weakest during the early game when he doesn’t have a stacked Passive. He is very immobile so you should work with your team to poke him and kill him quickly. His knock-up is his main CC tool and needs to be avoided at all costs. If you have any mobility spell on you, use it to dodge it as getting hit by it will allow him to use his Ultimate on you and possibly kill you. Keep a track on Cho’Gath’s whereabouts on the map. If he leaves lane, he may be helping his Jungler do a Neutral Objective. Scout around and see if you can kill him before he can use his Ultimate on the Objective. ”

ForgottenProject says “He's a strong frontline tank late-game so you dont want the game to drag on. [1]It's better to parry his Silence and Dodge His knock-up but you can parry both.

I Am Goliath says “Cho'gath is very strong right now just because the way his ult works, he will probably out scale you in teamfights but lane should be in your favor, he HP stacks hard especailly with his ult giving base HP each time he eats something so your W is always going to do a lot of damage to him, not only that but he will be eating minions most likely to get his 6 stacks in lane so he basically doesn't have ult for awhile. You can pressure Cho'Gath a lot in lane but I think he is easier and tankier then Gnar out of lane.”

EntxRecoil says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. Cho'gath has high sustain and a 7 second crowd control knockup in a circle aoe. His knockup is fairly easy to dodge if you are looking for his cast animation on it, and Cho'gath is immobile (no dashes or bursts of movement speed) so if you can dodge his Q you can get really solid trades on him. Early game look to build up fury without taking too much damage from his E (his empowered auto attacks) then look to trade. Force an extended trade, by starting off trades with an auto attack when he goes for a minion that way you can save your spin to dodge his Q or to stick on top of him when he walks away (position your spin in between Cho'gath and his escape path which will usually be his turret) In the mid-late game, Cho'gath will be extremely difficult to dive, but you can beat him if he is far up in lane with an effective all in OR you can shove Cho'gath in and outrotate him with your superior mobility. Cho'gath's ult is EXTREMELY high burst so make sure if you fall into his ultimate execution range that you press R a little bit early.”

BloodyDream81 says “C'est un match up pénible, il possède beaucoup de sort à distance pour farm sans se mettre en danger et son passif lui régénère de la vie à chaque fois qu'il tue des sbires. En revanche si tu évites son A, et le force dans un trade ALL in, tu gagneras à coup sur ! Pour ce faire y'a une petite astuce, tu te positionne entre lui et les sbires, et lorsqu'il tente de farmer les sbires avec son Q, tu utilises tout de suite ton fantôme pour lui foncer dessus, la première fois il ne s'y attendra pas, et tu auras de grande chose d'obtenir un kill. Astuce : Essaie de l'empêcher de farm un maximum sans trop t'exposer au jungle adverse, Cho gath à un excellent follow up de gank, avec ton bump et son silence. Les bottes de mercures et le phage rapidement t'aideront bien.”

Alan234 says “Any rune is fine. You cant really kill a good cho because of his passive and in midgame he 1 shot q's the backline with his q. Poke and maybe you will get a dive/kill on a bad cho (with bad i mean anything under master so yeah). Its important to dodge q when you suspect a gank because it spells immidate doom with flash r.

WayOfTheTempesst says “Ever since conqueror, tank lanes are relatively easy. All you have to avoid when facing Cho is his Q and wait out his E. This lane is pretty free if the Cho goes tank, but if he goes pure ap it can be a lot harder. Try to abuse him before he gets lvl 6, that is the only time he can ever win an all in against you. Make sure to fight him when you have shield so he can't one shot you. Very easily gankable champion which is why you do not see him too often unless built pure tank.”

TrinityForceYasuo says “He's pretty annoying to face. Has good sustain from passive,decent wave clear,annoying silence and tanky. Try to predict his Q, dodge it,while he uses E stay away from the minions or go in front of him use W and poke him while he AA's the minions. Buy bork against him, it helps sustain and is pretty good against tanks. Try to punish against any melee champs like cho when they go for minions especially early levels so you can have a good potential to all in them a bit later (if you have ignite the chance is even bigger) also on top against any match up I personally freeze and it helps me a lot to win the lane+when the enemy oversteps you have a good chance there to run them down since yasuo wins extended trades against most champs ( Especially tanks) and you can also set up ganks this way.”

He gains a significant spike once he gets 6, but if you manage to dodge his Qs and bait his W silence with your empowered W you will make mincemeat of him. If you ever get a sizeable lead on him just push as much as you can so you can take down turret fast and roam, since he will do jackshit for the rest of the match. Do note he can set up fairly good ganks, so watch out. If he gets ahead he just becomes a very annoying meatwall if he went tank, but he can give you trouble, so watch out.

TheBiskoppen says “He both out dmg and out sustain you with his passive, ask for jungle early and Zone him off CS.”
Crazy Crocman (Low Elo Match ups get gold+ ez pz) by TheBiskoppen | Renekton Player
NoxianBlood says “Cho Gath can be a Tank melter with his spikes, but he has little to defend himself, so kiting him and few stuns and slows, even though he has a lot of hp he won't be fast enough to burst you down, so in team fight just stun him allot of times, and he will drop, just try to protect your squishies he will certainly munch them if they get too close. putting your team in a rough spot by eliminating one of your teammates and it might be the ADC and will already take off your entire damage output. ”
Sion Guide by NoxianBlood | Sion Player
Askio says “Has a lot of cc, and a dangerous ult. But most times his ult is being used on minions to build his HP. Once his ult is down and you have the engage on him, you can hit him hard before he gets his mid/late game tank king status. ”
Zhygop says “Cho'Gath is an easy pick. Just need to grab him, then you dodge his Q and stacks, and... its over.”
DUNK ENEMY TEAM! by Zhygop | Darius Player
VicGal96 says “He telegraphs himself a lot and his early levels are not that strong. He gains a significant spike once he gets 6, but if you manage to dodge his Qs and bait his W silence with your empowered W you will make mincemeat of him. If you ever get a sizeable lead on him just push as much as you can so you can take down turret fast and roam, since he will do jackshit for the rest of the match. Do note he can set up fairly good ganks, so watch out. If he gets ahead he just becomes a very annoying meatwall if he went tank, but he can give you trouble, so watch out. Either Ignite or TP works fine, and you can take most runes into this matchup.”
STIERNACKENTYP says “Cho can be a problem when he gets ahead since u wont deal damage to him when he got armor and his ult is busted. Try to farm as much as possible and dont trade him since his passive heals him too much.”

Split King says “He is very tanky and deals insane damage, he should have been banned. If he was not and decided to go top, dodge his rupture at ALL cost”

BeautifulWinter says “Like most other matchups play passive until level 6 and then push aggressively when your ult is up. When He tries to Q you, you can dodge the knock up by ulting. In a fight you want to land an E early and poke before moving in as Cho'Gath has a lot of burst and might be able to Ult you before you can finish him (later levels not so much 6-11)”

Valorkyrie Quinn says “He can't really kill you unless he hits 6. Just dodge his Q and W. Tip: You can dodge his Q with your E. If perfectly timed, you'll be in mid-dash when his Q pops. It can't interrupt your E unless you are in his Q area. ”

Noc7urnalz says “Cho is one of the lanes that can get you pretty fed if he doesn't play passive in the early game. You can block his knock up and then really burst him down while he isn't tanky yet . NEVER go for a trade vs him if you fail to hit your Q as the trade will be in his favor. remember that you can also block his R with your W. NOTE : If it's an AP cho , make sure before going for a trade to either block his W or his Q , as a full combo from him can kill you.”

LuxIsMyCrush says “just dodge his Q and you should be ok, just dont let him touch you and you should be ok, this thing have a lot to much cc and damage gathering together with that ult which do a lot of true damage and make him tankier and can also be more effective than a smite, but early you own, and if you can survive from the level 6 whenever the lane phase will go you should win, poke him lv 1-2 as much as possible tho and don't let him get close of you or minions, try to predict the q, even if you dont, if you are close enough you should easy dodge it”

Defensivity1 says “Be carefull to not get all inned and ulted by cho gath if you got poked down before he hit level 6, his ult does more damage the more health you lack always spam your e whenever you have ghouls to poke him and look to cage him up with your w when you hit level 6, as he is guaranteed to die if you just run at him with the maiden and some ghouls, if he doesnt flash out that is. against cho the conqueror page is recommanded, however the grasp page is okay too if you preffer that.”

mightydylan101 says “Cho is actually really annoying as his Q has a pretty long range. If he hits it then you get knocked up and he has enough time to combo you and you're dead before you know it. His W cancels you're W. Not played much so don't worry about the ban.”

ProgettoYorick says “Cho'gath personally has never caused me so many problems, hit him with the usual E-W-Q combo. The only problem that can cause you is the devouring of the R by its R. OTP Tip: Try to kill him as many times as you can before he gets too tank”
Greekamol says “His w is very annoying and his e autos will mess you up. Cho gaths know that it's easy for you to parry the q so he will silence you before it knocks you up. try to dodge the q with your q and use w to slow him and fight him. You will feel useless if you let him snowball.”
Gedi says “He get's health with every cs so you should be carefull. Also his ult ist Pure which is pretty scary for you. But in generall you should be able to farm.”
"That damage tickles! by Gedi | Sion Player
ThisIsJustSad says “1. Cho'gath is a free matchup if he just tries to walk into you and 1v1 you. However, at level 5, he can just start spamming Qs every 6 seconds and that lets him sit back and farm the wave easily. At level 6, he has an execute that lets him kill your drain tanking aspect. 2. If you're not ahead, you will have to W his Q or w his R to kill him. Otherwise, he will usually beat you 1v1 until 25 minutes. 3. Be careful when you're low hp as he may silence you then press R and you won't be able to W. So, don't think you can walk up to him when you're low hp and you'll just W his R.”

AlienMV says “Beware getting too close As a tank, Cho'Gath doesn't seem that threatening. However, since you will not have resistances like other melee laners, he does a lot more damage to you than expected. Try to stay just far enough that if he lands a Q on you, you won't be punished hard (much of his damage will be from landing multiple hits of his E).”

Polkadog says “Early-game, he can harass you very well. Just keep your distance and try to last hit minions with your Q and then summon them and throw E at him. This forces him to back off a little so you can farm for a second. Later on, as he'll try to trade with you, hit him with your W and back off since you're not powerful enough just yet. When you get your R ready, don't pop it immediately. Wait until you've landed W on him, follow that with R, E, Q and AA. Now you've forced him to retreat and as he does: FARM! This is your chance to farm if you haven't got enough gold to buy Phage. When you have at least 1250 gold, go back and buy phage. While you're going back, if he gets to your turret, I'd suggest you teleport and stop him. Don't leave the lane if he has pushed far enough or if he's full hp.”

Zestysquid says “Basically if you don't kill him before he gets 6 you probably won't ever during laning. Ask for a gank before that happens since it's a bit of a Nasus like situation.

Jnewbringspain says “Definitely winnable early on. Eventually he will become too tanky to kill by yourself, but early on Cho has to worry about mana problems. Engage with E when your passive is up, land a quick two or three basic attacks with your Q, then run away and try to dodge his Rupture. Early on this trade will go in your favor, but he will have a large advantage after he gets some mana and level 6.”

RainbowNova says “Cho'Gath is one of the more annoying champions to play against as Teemo. Not only do you not have that much damage when going Tank on Teemo, but Cho'Gath's CC is very annoying to deal with. The worst part is if he's going AP/Tank hybrid, causing his ultimate to do lots of damage. I suggest poking him tons early and then playing very safe past lvl 6. Honestly I'd just not even pick Tankmo against this guy.”
Lil Tidepod says “Cho'Gath doesn't really do much damage late game, as long as he's building tank. If he's good, he'll probably hit quite a few Q's, and he'll use his own Q when you're charging yours. His silence can be irritating if you have a situation where you've slowed him with E to get a nice Q on him, but Cho'Gath overall is more of just an annoyance than a threat. Watch out for his ultimate stacks, though: because he can and will become tankier than you if the game goes on long enough. He can heal off his passive, but as long as you play it smart he won't be able to push past you after your first tank item.”

Nicram says “Cho'Gath is a champion who counters Urgot because of his sustain. This will be a farm lane but you have to respect his damage which doesn't seem to be enough to kill you but if you don't pay enough attention he will surprise you with his burst. In this lane your goal shouldn't be to kill him so you can focus on other things that I will describe later. Remember that you can easly time your E anytime he uses Q to counter it and move during CC. However, if fight is in melee range, he can use W before Q and prevent you from being able to use E. Keep this in mind. Recommended items Starter items - Corrupting Potion - the only valid item for this matchup. Cho'Gath will outsustain you anyways but thanks to this item you will decrease the gap in a better way than if you went for Doran's type of item. - Cull - is acceptable but not as a first item, you can buy it after Corrupting Potion to increase the health sustain while keeping mana sustain at a solid level. Your gold income will be greatly improved and there is not high enough risk of death not to build it. Non-starter items - Executioner's Calling - If you want to be agressive and look for a kill then it's a great item to buy against Cho'Gath. Remember to use Q or Autoattack right before he wants to last hit minions so you reduce the heal amount he gets from them. - Null-Magic Mantle (Spectre's Cowl) [Adaptive Helm] - Cho'Gath deals a lot of magic damage and if you are too tanky for him then he'll use his ult for minions instead of on you. Add some Health to the MR that you have and you should be able to farm well and scale up. - Don't try to fight him unless you plan to kill him in the early game. Just scale up and you'll be as strong or even stronger than Cho'Gath in the later phase of the game. - Take runes that will allow you to scale up such as Conditioning, Overgrowth, Transcendence or Gathering Storm. ”
Brentard says “Iv'e never seen anyone say that Cho is a counter to Garen but I feel like he is. Cho's E positioning can cause a surprising amount of damage early on. And his execute has a larger range and a quicker animation. Try to dodge the knock ups, W his E spikes, and if you are going to ult make sure you have the upper hand. cause he will eat you while your sword is in the ground and walk away like "Deal with it".”

DrMoneybags says “This ugly bug can be a real pain with his %HP damage and true damage execute. But as long as you take conqueror and E past his knockup, he's not too bad of a matchup early on. Just don't let him knock you up when you're dismounted or you're going to die. Grabbing a BotRK lategame might help you rip through his ridiculous HP.”
Arcthunder says “With Cho'Gath being a tank, Kled shreds them with his W and Conqueror. However, if you find yourself dismounted, it may be an acceptable time to run, or else you get executed.”
Big Boy Matty D says “Difficult to stick to because of his Q and E. He can all in you if he pokes you down because of true damage on ultimate. Try to let him push in early levels and ask for ganks between level 3 and 9. If he stacks his ultimate and gets too much health just try to roam and make plays instead of fighting him, only returning to catch minions under tower.”

E61K says “Trade with him whenever you can. Since Cho'Gath is a traditional tank you shit on him hard. Make sure to extend the trades as long as you can and zone him off of farm. Don't let him get any CS because his passive gives him unmatched sustain in lane.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: True Damage, Tanky, AP, Silence. Weaknesses: Low Mobility, Health Stacks, Predictable knock up. Be sure to poke Cho'Gath down often to wither down their HP. Be sure to parry the knock up because it’s his main form of engage and start for his combo of silencing you afterwards. You could also Riposte his ultimate Feast, which could certainly turn a fight into your favor but this is very difficult to do. His base damage is a bit high but the same goes for most tanks. Once you hit your two item power spike you can deal with him easily so don't feel to pressured to kill him early. Same for most tanks.”

Suthafru says “Cho'Gath - Cho'Gath cant compare to your early game poke, he will be unable to cs or fight back as you zone him out of lane but beware, once he builds a fair amount of armor, your damage will heavily fall off, once you stop doing damage its best to play back until you have the attack speed to properly kite him.”

E61K says “This guy is a problem for Yasuo in lane. Pre-6 he is not a big issue but post-6 he is very dangerous in lane. He outsustains you if you don't build any sustain and his ultimate is very dangerous for Yasuo since Yasuo has low base health. He has an AOE silence which he can use to deny you your E in order to dodge his knockup. If he snowballs on you you are gonna have a rough time. However if you snowball on him you can turn the outcome of this lane around. Look to fight him after your core and some HP item like Mallet. Edit: Conqueror makes this matchup a easier now.”
undeadsoldiers says “Cho’gath - Conqueror Early items (in order) - Phage, Boots (Mercs if he's ahead), Tiamat - All in lvl 1-2 (passive stacked) - Play aggressive in the early lane phase (lots of all ins with passive stacked) - Wait for him to use vorpal spikes on wave before trading - Zone him off minions (to keep him from recovering health) - Bait his silence with your autos (best if passive stacked) - Trade when his silence is on cooldown - Your lvl 6 is stronger (if the fight starts even) - Play safe around his feast, increasingly so as the game progresses - Blade of the Ruined King as a 3rd or 4th item can help deal with his tankiness - Ult cooldown: 80”
BreadyToCrumble says “Take the "Cut Down" rune from the precision tree, it'll help with Cho'Gath's tankiness. As long as you can dodge his airborne ability you should be good. Poke him with W and you can get some health back if you need it in lane, and because he's tanky you'll get a lot of health :)”

Tips Against Cho'Gath in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Polarshift says “Doesn't ever die, but if you make one missplay say byebye to your healthbar.”
Yeager says “You rarely see this guy midlane even though he can be pretty strong. AP Cho'gath has a lot of burst, so you want to focus on dodging his Q. It's the only way he can gap close (without flash) and engage. Banshee's veil is great since it counters his surprise engages. Remember that AP cho doesn't care as much about stacking his ultimate. He can use it to burst you early on with his entire combo. You can bully him a lot early game since he can't really defend himself, and you also outscale him really hard. ”
Yeager's Master Orianna guide by Yeager | Orianna Player
Yeager says “AP Cho Gath: Poke him a lot with autos and aery procs. In the laning phase you have to focus on dodging his Q ability which is a knockup + slow. If he hits you once, he will combo and oneshot you. Get banshee's after luden's echo so he can't catch you off-guard. He is a immobile melee champ, so if you manage to dodge his Q, then it's easy from there. Respect his burst though after 6, especially if he has flash and ignite. ”

Phrxshn says “This can be either a easy or hard-match up if you cannot dodge his skillshot. Juke out his Rupture(Q) and Feral Scream(W). Avoid fighting Cho'gath if you are low health as his Feast(R) can execute you.

Yuki H. says “Early game shouldn't be too much of a problem. Since he is melee as well, farming isn't too difficult in this case. Just watch for his E which can poke you down slowly.

Fadedreformed says “Pretty sad to play against he perma slows you and you can't press r because of the silence. Should be pretty easy if your jungler actually listens to your pings.”
Veralion says “HoB/DH, Long Sword/Dark Seal. AP Cho'gath is a very potent cheese pick to be feared and respected. Because of his ridiculous burst potential and low mobility, he is most frequently run mid over top. You will never be able to poke him down through his passive, so don't even try. Keep your distance and don't let him E slow you, which will force you to take his Q and W. Just farm it out until 6. After 6, you CANNOT get hit by Rupture. He will flash on you and kill you from full with his 1.0 scaling ult. You MUST flash or ult away if his Q might hit you. Save your W to dodge this one hit kill ability. I'll say it again; AP Cho's combo kills you from 100% health, and I've got the matchup at even because of how unforgiving the lane is. They will frequently push in at this point and fish for those instant death Q hits. Call your jungler while he's doing so and he should go down easy. Don't just ult at him without backup, as a good Cho will put his Q under your landing position and nom you. At some point, he will give up trying to kill you and will just use his ult on a creep to start stacking health. That's when it's safe to go for him, force a back, and regain lane priority. As long as you don't get hit by his Q while he has his ult available, you'll outscale him and contribute much more in fights than he could ever dream of doing. Haven't had the chance to run Hail into him yet, his auto slow into combo may make trading unwise. Would be way more gank assist for an immobile champion though, probably worth taking. ”

TheCatOfCheshire says “In early game you destroy him. Poke him with AA, dodge his q , and wait a last hit to charm him. If you can kill him 2 or 3 times, you're going to win. But if not, he'll become to tanky to be killed and your game will be hard. Again, you're a better roamer so use it.”

When his Q is down, you can carefree poke him down with yours until he gets his Q back then be wary again.”

EvilBird090 says “Cho'Gath can be surprisingly strong with a lot of AP, he has actually more oneshot potential than you have. If you get hit by his Q he is able to flash W+E+R Ignite and you are dead before you can go into pool, or do anything in fact. Try to pool his Q and buy Liandry's as he will have a lot of health later on. Be sure to be wary of his Q at any part of the game, if he Ws first you need to sidestep it. Otherwise you will outscale him and be more useful in teamfights. Cho'Gath will mostly rely on cheese killing your team and you so respect him and his damage so that won't happen too often.”

RagexAddict says “Chogath is not often seen in the mid lane anymore but I figured I'd make a quick guide for him. He's not too much of a threat seeing as you can move around through minions and other units with ease to dodge his abilities. The key to winning lane and snowballing against cho is to take him on early. If you can't do this safely either because of good positioning by cho or their jungler camping your lane, wait for jungle help or roam. Cho can't out roam a Fizz, so use that to your advantage.”
SrSuders says “Cho'Gath auf der Lane zu besiegen, ist ziemlich schwer. Durch seine CC's hat er große Counter Möglichkeiten. Auch wenn der Cho'Gath full AP geht, seine HP gehen aufgrund seiner Cho'Gath R in die Decke. Das one-shoten nach Level 6 wird demnach schwer.”

Tips Against Cho'Gath in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Kayn Mains says “Make sure to always save your Reaping Slash (Q) to dodge his knockup. Avoiding it wins you the fight easily early game. Cho'Gath's clear is painfully slow, so always look for opportunities to invade him. Don’t fight Cho'Gath once he reaches level 6. His ultimate does massive damage and can kill you from half HP during mid game. Once you reach the late game Cho'Gath becomes a free HP reset with your ultimate if you have chosen to go Rhaast. He is also very immobile, so as long as you have the appropriate itemization to fight his tankiness you win the fight.”
