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

I Am Goliath says “Push malphite in early game as much as possible as it's hard for him to farm under turret early game, Malphite also just has no kill pressure on you early game and bad waveclear so this should be easy, it's hard to kill malphite until you get black cleaver unless he messes up really bad, Also remember you can flash his ultimate. Basically we outscale Malphite really hard because of our passive + black cleaver + conqueror, and you should be able to build up a nice CS lead in laning phase, also Cull can be nice in this matchup since we're trying our hardest to scale in this matchup.”

xPetu says “Recommended: Standard Runes & Teleport Tips: Passive shield his Q poke. W his W-AA reset. Flashing his R is really easy if you are prepared for it. Punish him if he uses E on wave. The AS Slow from his E is really powerful.”
Sovereign Kitten says “Depending on what build the Malphite is going (Usually Comet AP) you would want to be utilizing bushes to avoid poke, and only poking when you see him use his (Q) to CS as this will slow you, sending the comet down and there is no way to react to this without (W) active and Mercury's Treads. Don't overextend past level 6 nor have your lane shoved in. This is just asking for you to be ganked and locked down by his knock-up burst from his (R), so it's much better to try to keep the lanes even or pushed up towards your tower. Hold onto your flash to avoid his (R) at the last sec takes practice, stasis is an alternative. ”

ForgottenProject says “A Shield, Poke and a Burst Combo once he hits Lv.6. [1]Try to parry his ult in All-ins. [2]If he rushes Bramble West against you, dont bother fighting him in lane you wont win the trades. [3]It's better to play this lane passively because you outscale him by the 20 minute mark if you're not behind. [4]He may not beat you but he will definitely beat your team in team-fights so stick with them if they keep dying.”

Stinkee says “Malphite does pretty good poke damage and will try to stop you from farming and basically just annoy you by spamming Q's on you. Malphite runs out of mana very fast though so you should be able to stay in lane longer than him. Abyssal Mask is a good purchase if the enemy jungler in not a big AD threat. Malphite shouldn't be able to ever kill you unless you make a big mistake or get ganked. The enemy jungler will be the main threat in this matchup so just watch out for ganks.”
DarkyTheReal says “Malphite should go grasp against Riven because arcane comet can get blocked by Riven’s E, here you should get mercury boots instead of Ionian, and try to do extended trades vs him with conqueror.”

tonisco82 says “Can be difficult matchup if you let him poke with Q, punish him for using it to cs. Try to get a level and health advantage to force him to do so.”

PH45 says “Maybe one of the most annoying lanes you can face. He is weak in early levels so try to force him out early. If you try to trade with him after 3 he will just E and you probably can't finish one auto attack off before he runs out of range. He stacks armor too so your autoattacks won't do much damage to him. If he E's just jump away with Q so you wont take more damage from him. Beware at 6 since his ult is really strong cc that can enable the enemy jungler to get a free kill on you if you aren't careful.”
LiL Bunnie FuFuu says “Malphite is a melee tank with one poke ability - his Q. This will do strong poke and combined with his speed boost, is oppressive to play against. His ult is a problem as it cannot be dodged without flash and has strong base damage. It also makes him much stronger than you in teamfights. Build chemtank into stoneplate or randuins and look for picks.”

Katawina52 says “The Poke on his Q is really annoying, you can go Dshield and second wind to make his poke 1000x less annoying. If you go Wits End into rift , his kill presure drops pretty significantly, Cuz MR fucks AP Malphite hard.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “One of if not the hardest tank to play against as Yasuo. Early game you hard win obviously since tanks are very weak esp since Malphite can't abuse Aftershock early like most tanks. The reason I put him as a 3 is bc if you do not build up a big enough lead early, he sets up ganks so easily against you post 6. Only counter play to his ulti is to try to flash it but your flash has a massive CD compared to his ulti. Try to predict his E and dash away from him when he tries to lower your attack speed. Use your windwall on his Q only when your shield is down to take the least damage from his harass as possible.”

PRoli03 says “If you suspect that he'll play mid try to go for a control/poke mage he will be frustrating to play againist. (fleet footwork)”

AngryAngrier says “Malphite cannot do much. Despite the fact that you're building AD, you still deal mixed damage so he doesn't counter you. You should be able to outpoke him and force him not to farm as you're ranged and he's melee.”
Avucado says “Literally unkillable and ungankable post 6. There is no way you're wnning this lane unless you roam. His wave clear is not that great so you have to roam whenever you can. Tell your lanes not to shove and try to coordinate ganks on other lanes with your jungler. He will probably go AP malph since hes the midlaner and if he does you need a hexdrinker. If you try to get a gank he will R away. If gets enough AP he can 1 shot you easily. Always keep your finger on your E or flash so you can try to react to his R. Not worth banning however since he has a low pickrate midlane.”

Coldsong says “Malphite is another super hard matchup for Talon because unless he screws up, you will never kill him. Do NOT stand close to him once he hits 6 and try to stay out of lane as much as you can. Punish him if he E's the wave as he will lose a lot of dueling power.”

Modern Giraffe says “Haven't played this one much. I have only faced it mid once and had PTA Lucian runes so I built bruiser and destroyed him. If he is in another lane just ult his ult and he'll eventually stop targetting you with it.”

Tips Against Malphite in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Ellesmere says “You can counterjungle if you want since he doesn't have much escape and gets pretty low in his jungle early, but after his initial clear he's too tanky to warrant wasting your own clear time to harass. Just farm up / gank and you can destroy him mid-late game. ”

Polarshift says “Slows your attack speed and is designed to be strong against AD champions. It will be hard to kill him, even early, unless he spends his mana like a madman. He also has great gank setup and disengage with his Q.”

G Spot God says “He steals your move speed so a good tip is to wait for his q to hit you THEN use your W to close the gap. You should easily be able to survive his burst. Double scutt.”

Sq_09 says “Malphite doesn't really do anything to you pre-6. If he ever ganks pre-6, try to countergank. Track his R-cd, because that's the only way he can do anything to you. You can either Stopwtach his R, or place and R below you before you get hit. Alternatively you can just let it hit you and combo back afterwards, just take care of dodged, because his Q makes him pretty fast. Malphite wants to stack Armor, so you actually damage him quite a bit compared to your other carries. Rush Zho and you should be fine.”
liserith says “You won't see Malphite jungle very often, but when you do, he's a pain in the ass. His passive makes poking him down quite difficult, and after level 6, his ult is an extremely powerful gap-closer. His Q is point and click, so you can't even dodge it. Try to abuse his early game, as all tanks struggle there.”
Off-Meta Non-Crit Kindred by liserith | Kindred Player
RedNBlue says “Malphite can tank your damage and once he's level 6 can really mess you up with his ultimate. He can steal you movement speed causing you to be very slow and his passive shield will only break at the cost of your w or q.”

RedNBlue says “Malphite is just like Amumu. Malphite has a great amount of base armor plus his passive rock shield will be hard to break early if your not low enough health. He will also build thorn mail.”
