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

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.”
[11.1] xPetu's Challenger Shen Guide by xPetu | Shen Player
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.”
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.”

Yamikaze says “Extreme: The opponent has kill pressure on you in major portion of the game, while you have none. More information found below.”
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.”

RTO says “Dorans shield start. He is much better in team fights. You might be able to kill him if he uses his dash, however you will probably lose every trade. Take advantage of his cooldowns if he makes a mistake. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - BORING/SKILL MATCHUP. DON’T EAT POKE FOR TOO LONG. TAKE SECOND WIND AND DSHIELD/TRIPLE REJUV BEADS AS A STARTING ITEM. MERC BOOTS RUSH IF YOU THINK YOU CAN KILL HIM. SPECTRE’S COWL IF YOU CAN’T DEAL WITH HIS POKE BUT HE REALLY DOES NO DAMAGE SO JUST DSHIELD AND PLAY PROPERLY. CONQUEROR IS GREAT. PHASE RUSH CAN WORK. IF KENNEN DOESN’T TAKE PHASE RUSH, JUST STOMP HIM WHEN HE PUSHES UP. TRY TO LAND YOUR W ON HIM WHEN HE USES LIGHTNING RUSH. FARM UP AND DON’T DIE TO HIM IN LANE. FREEZE THE LANE AND THEN RUN HIM DOWN IF POSSIBLE. TRY TO SPLIT PUSH VS HIS TEAM IF HE ISN'T STOMPED BECAUSE HIS TEAMFIGHTING IS VERY STRONG. STRIDEBREAKER MAKES HIM A FREE KILL Kennen is notoriously known as being one of Darius’ hardest matchups and it is completely false in my opinion. In Season 11, Kennen is completely free because Stridebreaker turns this little rat into a 300g bag of gold. His poke is pretty laughable compared to other ranged matchups and his all ins are very terrible. His poke is moreso a Quantity thing rather than a Quality thing so just play back and give up a few minions while you are healing back using Dshield. Try to farm up while sustaining. I’d recommend a Merc boots rush along with tenacity from runes which makes you essentially impervious to his stuns. Conqueror is an okay choice and you should take it since we are rushing early boots and the extra AD will be helpful to us. Conq + Nimbus is the best. If he plays properly, this is going to be a very boring lane as none of you have too much kill potential on the other. Try to farm up and itemise properly. One thing to keep note of is that Kennen is a monster in teamfights thanks to Zhonya’s Hourglass. It lets him face tank your entire team and stun everyone while being invulnerable which honestly has little counterplay other than having a champion with good and fast disengage (Gragas, Lee, Janna). I’d recommend trying to splitpush into his team and force him to match you. This is only the case if you ARE NOT fed though. If you get fed, just run his team down. You scale much better as a duelist than him so keep that in mind. If the Kennen goes AD, the lane is going to be more difficult as he is going to have a 5 second CD on his E which makes him impossible to catch. But on the bright side, he will be much worse in teamfights. Overall, just be patient and keep an eye out for positioning mistakes. If all else fails, Stridebreaker will save you.”
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.”

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.”
MarkFromSingedMains says “OH GOD OH NO OH GOD OH NO If you win lane you're a God or he's first time Kennen. Dodge his Q and try to play as passive as you can, no point trying to flip him because he'll zoom away.”

Dr Eggmund says “Kennen has great poke so position yourself wisely so you can farm from harms reach. When you try to go for a level 6 all in make sure you either have ult advantage or are confident that his ult won't stun and punish you.”
Vladimir《11.1》: Cosmic Devourer IN-DEPTH by Dr Eggmund | Vladimir Player
RezoneVerified says “Care his Ult/Zhonya combo. Bait him in and try and land your stun before he lands his.”

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.”

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. ”

Chili Dog says “Very easy matchup, respect his stun when trading and you'll out trade out sustain and just oneshot his rat ass. Electrocute recommended. ”

Noodles912 says “Kennen can get a bit annoying. Just Q on and dodge those Strong and Slow shurikens with E. If Kennen uses R, get out IMMEDIATELY!”
Sushi_Cat says “While Kennen used to be an awful matchup for Mordekaiser. But now that Kleptomancy is gone, the Kennen lane is now a skill matchup slightly favored towards Morde post-6. ”
WolfRider01 says “Kennen's lane bully potential is actually really strong, and his most annoying strength is his CC. He can easily run you down if you don't watch his passive stacks. Play defensive, take fleet if you don't feel comfortable in the matchup. Ask for ganks to shut his lane phase down.”

Songstress says “Kennen is fast and can stun you so its better to play safe.”

sweodigaming says “Good harass, very squishy. Watch out for his jukes. He can do much unexpected damage and stuns in a short period of time.”
