“Big rock. Big rock no hurt. Puny shuriken no scratch rock.
This matchup makes my soul hurt. Get a doran's shield/blade and build eclipse and try to kill him before he gets too tanky or you'll have to just roam forever.
Also hovering your mouse over yourself and SPAMMING R to dodge his ult is a viable counterplay.”
“Its hard against Malphite, because he is tank with a good damage. Try to poke him but if he ults you, you are dead.”
“If he builds AP he will One Sot you if he builds tank he will One Shot you.
Basically, no matter what happens u will have a hard time against him ”

“Malphite, especially when he goes tank is super hard kill. His Qs use a lot of mana. You can look for a decent trade if you hit two Ws. It's even better his he already used his E as he'll lose a lot of dmg to you. Respect his R+E+WQ combo.”
“[Start: Corrupting Potion]
[Spell: Teleport or Barrier]
[Bully him pre 6]
[Post 6, stay away from his range]
[Build Banshee's Veil]”
“Pre-6 this lane is a joke. His Q does a decent amount of damage but if he's in range for that, you're in range for a Q of your own, and your Q does a lot more. Post-6; however, you might as well just spread your cheeks. It's not too bad really but it's almost a 100% chance to get egg out. Usually, he won't have the follow-up to kill egg too, and if you bait out his R to go for you under your turret, and hit a good wall to keep him in there, you might even get a kill. Just try to abuse him when his R is on cooldown as much as possible.”
“Honestly, you should never lose this match-up. Malphite has some poke but runs out of mana so much quicker than you, if you are full HP he is not able to one shot you with his combo and he is squishy early game. You just win. Take Barrier and if you struggle, go for early MR/MR boots to deny his all in potential. ”
“[Press The Attack Runes / Long Sword and Refillable Pots start.] Malphite early can be a bit annoying when because of his Q spam. This ends up hurting quite a bit. When he runs up to Q you hit him with Q and grapple in after him. The movement speed won't allow for you to chase him down with auto attacks. He can't out damage you so there is nothing to fear. Post 6 Malphite is a serious threat and can kill you if he hits you with R. Stay away from him and only go in if you have help. DO NOT GET POKED DOWN WITH TOO MANY Q's!”
“Malphite lane is pretty easy for you as his only real threat onto you is his ult and flash ult, so make sure to time his flash.
Early lane, just poke him and get a CS lead. He will look to Q you for Comet whenever his manaflow is up. It's okay as long as you don't take too much poke since it means he misses a lot of farm.You should have perma prio and be able to have a huge CS advantage.
Try not to let him get his passive shield up in lane.
You can honestly go any runes and summs vs malphite and be fine. just play round his ultimate and you win. PR is nice so counter his Q slow, but the damage from Aery/Elec are nice.
I usually run Teleport but you can run ignite for more kill pressure.
Zhonyas is great if they have multiple AD threats, but only if you're confident in your ability to dodge his ult.
Banshees is ok if the enemy team is heavy AP.”
