Tips Against Kennen in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

I Am Goliath says “Kennen is just annoying in lane and hard to kill but he shouldn't really kill you either, early merc treads can be good since he has a lot of CC, flash E can also secure you kills in this lane, but you probably won't be going for many normal E's unless he gets out of position or you bait him in well. Both champs scale pretty decently in teamfights but he can't do anything against your splitpush pressure in a sidelane so simply push him in and look for roams and tp plays in the mid game.”

xPetu says “Recommended: Sustain Runes & Teleport Tips: W blocks his Passive W-AA. Dodge or Passive shield his Q poke. You can E him when he E's and he can't do anything except follow your champion (no AAs in Lightning form). This can be used to pull him under Tower.”
Sovereign Kitten says “Playing aggressive against him early and shoving him under his tower tends to be the better option, as he suffers from the same effect we have when pushed in. Side step his abilities and try not to get too close when you are hit, as he can stun you. If you are under your tower, and he decides to all in you with his (R) it would be wise to have a stopwatch in the early game, if you wanna be extra cautious. When he uses Zhonya's Hourglass and & tries to flash away shroom his feet immediately as he enters stasis as he nor any other champion can flash out of setting it off as they changed how it interacts.”

ForgottenProject says “Probably one of the champions that are best for teamfights. Even then he holds his own in Top-lane as one of the most annoying champions. [1]Set up a Freeze and Farm the Lane. [2]You can All-in him lv6 if he uses Lightning Rush to come forward. [3]Don't Ask for Ganks unless he is over-extended due to your Freeze or he can just Lightning Rush Away and you'll waste everyone's time. [4]You can now Parry the stun from his Passive which makes this match-up a bit easier. ”

Stinkee says “Kennen has good poke and a good stun. Be aware of the stacks of lightning on you, that's how you'll know if he's going to stun you. Just try to use your Q outside of his stun window. Use your E before or during his E to slow him down a good amount. If you're ever in danger and in his ult you can easily just ult away from him and get to safety.”
DarkyTheReal says “This is one of the toughest matchups for riven because Kennen has a lot of stuns and can just E out your trades. Here you need to go for mercurial boots and hex drinker early if you want to get a chance to kill him.”

MrDomian says “Don't fight on the first levels. Be the first to trade with your R.”

PH45 says “He is really annoying and slippery. Will poke you early a lot so getting some sustain is a good idea. If you try to jump on him he will just stun you and E away. If his E is on cooldown and you are confident he can't kill you all in him then. Care for jungle ganks as his ult sets up ganks quite well.”
LiL Bunnie FuFuu says “Broken, obnoxious mage. Teamfight king and also extremely good at poking. Take aftershock and second wind and look for all-ins with your jungler. You'll be hard to kill but you have to get there first...”

Drake6401 says “I haven't faught a top lane Kennen yet but I faced him as Ahri in mid once. His poke is dreadful even to her. This means hell for top laners. The mobility and poke Kennen has is metaphorical cancer. He also has a lot of stuns when he ults so Legend tenacity is a must pick rune. Mercs will help also.”

Tips Against Kennen in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

WayOfTheTempesst says “Insane poke, all in, tankiness, this champ has it all. Try not to get poked down too much early and look to trade lvl 2 and when his passive W is 0 stacks. MR is a must in this lane, one of the rare times rushing mercs is very effective due to kennen being able to stun you multiple times. If they are heavy AP you can also get a hex to avoid getting bursted by him. Predict his Qs with windwall when going for an all in. His very small hitbox makes it very hard to hit tornados on him so it's usually better to get your knock on him by just EQing on to him.”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Start Doran + 2 Pots if 1) You think you can outplay her and hit your W's to generate a kill at levels 3-5 or 2) You think she will burst you down post 6 (get an extra ring). Start Corrupting if you think you will not hit your W's (or you will get poked down) and you rely more on wave clear/spammy poke (you will be way more squisher but more durable -- this is recommended if you are sure you will not get hit by CC spells and instantly die). Get some early MR such as Null Mantle for Mercs or part of Banshees. Kennens kill power comes from his ultimate ONLY, so you having some magic resist will absolutely deny him that. Besides that in teamfights if you can try to target him down if you engage before he ults. If not just roam and play safe on lane just by shoving. You can kill him but he will be slippery due to his E. Careful on your jungler ganks since his ult is a very strong aoe spell and can turn the fight around if their jungler counterganks.”

XayLies says “Windwall is the key here. don't dive because you'll get stunned and just wait for the moment his Energy is low.”

Yasukeh says “ He can very easily poke you out, and if you try to get onto him he can just stun you and speed away. If he doesn't take phase rush, it can be much easier to get on top of him. If he ever blows his E, you can fairly easily kill him. Heavily consider taking Legend: Tenacity into this matchup, as it will help not getting perma-stunned. ”

RezoneVerified says “Care his Ult/Zhonya combo. Bait him in and try and land your stun before he lands his.”
