Sc00n3z says “Malphite's armor stacking and passive shield (Granite Shield) reduce the effectiveness of Illaoi's physical damage. His crowd control (Ground Slam and Unstoppable Force) can interrupt Illaoi's abilities and lockdown her in fights.”

CrimsonL7 says “He just beats you to death, you will never have the damage to kill him lol. Just farm and try to scale for team fights. (You can kill him pre first back but after that its rough) ”

step1v9 says “Permaban. Seriously just permaban. Even the worst player can counter you. Don't take grasp into it. I don't care what build Timmy in silver tells you to go just permaban it.”

Lukenzoo says “He runs out of mana pretty quickly but be careful of his lvl 6 ”
Lukenzoo's Yorick guide by Lukenzoo | Yorick Player
LDaL says “Problematic matchup because of his passive and w( both grant him shield and armor). Can go tank and ap. If tank - you can try to kill him before 6 and first defensive item. After that you need bork at least. The only dangerous from him in teamfights is his ult, he can easily engage. Just ignore him and focus enemies carry( he doesn't deal much dmg). IF he going for your carry, try to protect him after his ult by using w in front ranged champ and focus him. Ap more dangerous but easier to kill. If he get 2-3 items, very likely he will one shot(if you doesn't have any magic resist items) or your carry with his full combo. So try to time your tornado after he ult so you can ult himright after. Get core item and you destroy him.”

Raideru says “Let him q you on the first two levels all the time to waste his mana and also poke him with q, after lvl 3 look to hook him in when he throws q and short trade him or all in him depending on your hp, he can't really do much to you because you just outsustain his q poke and you win most trades, Wave will be on your side most of the time because of his q agroing the minions so ask for ganks or run him down if he dares to q you while he's deep in lane”

Azzin says “If he goes AP just buy banshee's 2nd and you'll never die, otherwise play this like any tank matchup, push => proxy => invade/roam”
Haxorr says “Malphite can be tough if you don't know what you're doing and you let him scale. However, if you play aggressively early and get the lane into good wavestates, such as a freeze, it's really easy to beat malphite. A good malphite will take comet in this matchup, so having DShield + second wind is really useful. I recommend taking Conq page and rushing Ravenous Hydra, as it allows you to outsustain his trades. You need to play aggressive early and get prio on the wave, and look to chunk him as you do your 3 wave crash. Cheater recall -> freezing works really well against Malphite as his early game is really weak. After he gets a few points in q, the lane gets a lot harder, so your first few waves/levels are really important.”

DuckQc says “He can kill you pre-6 if he has a wave stacked up, post-6 he doesn't really have the damage but he can use his r to escape you. Try to not get hit by his r while you didn't use yours, because it doesn't cleanse knockups. I would recommend building bc > shojin(true damage from e)/hexplate. By building bc you get 40% armor reduction at full stacks, so you make him less tanky and he has less damage from w. You should also buy a null-magic mantle early game.”

Skaarlschloch says “You beat him in lane but hes often more useful in fights. You should try to outroam him get plays going mid/bot to get your team ahead aswell”

Tips Against Malphite in Mid Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

GreenReapers says “Take First Strike or conqueror. D-shield for his Q+Comet poke. He outdamages, outpushs and outtanks you at the same time. Stay safe. If possible get the Junglers help. Might be worth to sacrifice waves for a good roam. Generally when playing against tanks, you have to think of them as walking piggy banks and play with the gold advantage you get from first strike and staying safe (-Onzed).”

TwTv Akai_Tv says “[PTA] Malphite is really hard to play against as he just stacks armor and pressures you alot by being able to ult you anytime. If you play vs Malphite in lane take PTA and take E lvl 1, Malphite will look to Q you to proc comet, when he does this you AA him and E in right away to proc your shield + PTA + avoid comet for a really good trade. Malphite is not that tanky before his first base but be careful after he has his first armor items.”

sick204 says “Respect Malphite's tankiness and engage potential with his abilities, especially his Q and R. Use Yasuo's E to dodge Malphite's abilities and minimize damage taken. Be cautious of Malphite's passive, which grants him a shield that absorbs damage and regenerates over time. Utilize W to block Malphite's Q in trades and team fights to reduce his engage potential. Engage on Malphite when his ultimate is on cooldown or when he's low on mana, as he can be vulnerable during these times. Consider building items like Blade of the Ruined King or Mortal Reminder to deal with Malphite's armor stacking.”

Laimaudeja says “[I would use the First Strike page in this lane, with the Precision path, and start Amplifying Tome.] Malphite is pretty hard to poke out due to his passive, Doran's Shield and Second Wind. Try to get as much gold from him as you can using First Strike, and try to maintain dominance over the wave so he's unable to roam with his ultimate.”

Enderspider says “People like to counterpick this into naafiri for some reason, but not actually as big of a counterpick as it seems. You can't really kill him but he can't kill you either. The thing is, you kill his team much more effectively than he kills yours so realistically not that big of a threat. Simply farm up and stay alive and you will win out. This applies to most other tanks too, dont be affraid to pick naafiri into a tank because it simply means you get a farm lane.”

Soft Headpats says “This matchup is basically the same as vs Annie but even simpler. His passive shield can be annoying to break, but if you take Aery and continue to harass him you'll eventually whittle him down enough. His gank setup is obviously scary once he hits 6, but as long as you respect where his jungler is, Malphite shouldn't have the damage to solo-kill you unless he's ahead. Similarly to Cho'gath, if he chooses to run a tank build he's even easier to deal with. Make sure you get Liandry's and Cryptbloom if this is the case. ”
