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

SesaPrime says “Shen is a formidable adversary. He can support his team looking across the map at anytime. He have to keep close proximity of him to cancel his ultimate. Dueling him can result in a stalemate in lane as his kit is really good at countering Camille's engages. ”
primate nefasto says “or you get ahead and win every moment of the game, or he will. Avoid hit your W Q while he is in his W. Be aware of his ult, you can cancel it with your R, but be carefull, maybe it´s better if he goes around the map and you can take plates. That "good play" of him can lose him the line.”
Vixylafoen says “Farm matchup, though if you can kill him, more power to you”

Boptimus says “Shen has a decent amount of early damage but if you can avoid his sword passing through you and you don't give him free Auto Attacks with his Q you should have no problem stomping this lane. If you have the reaction or you can predict his E you can avoid the taunt with W and shove him out of his W if you're lucky. You have much better waveclear than him and you can duel him quite easily once you have R.”

Ulamog says “Grasp Build; Second Wind + D Shield. Hold W for his E, and never let him Q you for free. You can go in for Q Grasp pokes without him hitting you for it and this is the main pattern you wanna do in this matchup. Post 6 push him in as much as possible to punish him if he uses his R.”
stefanko says “Look to bait out his passive before trading by fake walking up, try to not let him get into your body, cause then he can dash through you and pull you with him and deal e damage. Once you get 6 look to perma have lane prio if your team is on the map, so you can punish him for ulting on the map. (conqueror)”

Biba or OTP Kled says “Tank base:Kled beats every tank easy 'cuz he is strong in early when tanks need to scale first”

killer2325 says “Be careful about his damage+ignite. Just poke him and keep him on low hp. Farm and tack enemy jungler. Get off when he uses his W. Wait till he uses Q on cs, than you can trade. When he ulted just shove wave as fast as you can and take the plates.”

PraefectusMace says “Early game Shen is a bit of a pushover. The issue begins at mid game and ahead, because he can just taunt you and take you away from whatever you were trying to hit. And they usually build a lot of resistance so not only it gets difficult to kill Shen, but also gives time for his allies to kill you.”

dzsama says “Shen deals a lot of damage with his Q so be careful about tanking too many hits from him. Also pay attention to his swords position as if he draws it through you he will deal more damage to you with his Q autos. Generally you want to E just before he taunts you so he doesn't get free damage on you. After 6 he will ult to other lanes and pressure in that way so either be ready to cancel his ult with your E or be ready to TP to help your team or if your TP is down the force down towers top and warn your team.”

Tips Against Shen as a Support Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Toches says “not a common support, but you destroy him after lvl 2.”
iveye says “Shen has a lot of kill threat level 2 but... this is not top lane in a 1v1. Rell excels in counter engaging where you have the upper hand on Shen in almost every interaction. Save Q for his R to completely negate his shield and kill his carry before they can react. One side note for Shen, similar to Bard you should always inform your team upon him hitting level 6 where he can influence the map with you unable to assist, and if he R's in range CC him out of his channel if possible. ”

Amelioratelol says “Whenever the Shen presses R you then will just press R to break Shen R.”

gizemdeniz says “He doesn't appear in support role much these days. The fact that he is generally a slow hero and doesn't have as much shock damage as Ahri's makes us stronger than him.”

Fenreee says “|||SUPPORT||| Shen is incredibly annoying and he can set up incredibly strong engages. This matchup mainly depends on whether you can disengage the engager that Shen wants to ult. Shen mainly counters pick-champs like Thresh, as he is anti-burst. Janna plays for sustained fights mainly. You should play around the max range of his E as it can be otherwise difficult to react to, especially if he uses flash. If you think his shield is a problem you can definitely get away with Serpents Fang but if you have an Assassin or Bruiser that can run the item they should. ADCs shouldn't take this item as Janna can run it due to her Glacial build not offering any scaling with items anyway. |||TOP||| Shen top is annoying to deal with because he's not worth ganking and can't be put particularly far behind, yet he can screw with you and set up all sorts of macro plays by teleporting around the map, that you simply aren't able to do anything about because even though you're playing a roaming champion, you're still not really meant to counter the macro decisions of toplaners.”
Lugos says “His biggest weapon is his ultimate and W, play around it, if you see the enemy getting his R you can place E so shen has to step back and cant engage forward anymore.”
LordZaneLP says “counters your passive, but in teamfights you outclass him so hard he cant win”

Demonsedge90 says “This matchup comes purely down to timing of your skills against his. Just watch out for his taunt which makes it hard for you counter engage safely. Pay attention to his movements closely and you should be fine.”

PykEugeo says “shen is able to negate auto attacks and can taunt you, but other than that there is only one X tank left ”
hampenguin says “It's almost a given that Shen will R whoever you engage on when it matters, so you really need to be able to burst harder than he can shield, or pray you get a Nocturne.”
