Bad against...[edit]

Abaddon icon.png
Brewmaster icon.png
Earth Spirit icon.png
Monkey King icon.png
  • Monkey King’s clones from Wukong’s Command and Aghanim’s Scepter are immune to Chronosphere, so it is a very bad idea to Chronosphere Monkey King with his clones around.
Kunkka icon.png
  • Ghostship can stun Faceless Void and give damage reduction to allies during Chronosphere.
  • Torrent can stun Faceless Void from outside Chronosphere.
  • X Marks the Spot can bring back Faceless Void if he escape using Time Walk.
  • If the timing is right and there are allies to attack, combination of X Marks the Spot, Ghostship, Torrent and Tidebringer can kill Faceless Void instantly.
Grimstroke icon.png
Night Stalker icon.png
  • Crippling Fear can silence Faceless Void for a long time, preventing him from using his Time Walk and Chronosphere.
Phoenix icon.png
  • Fire Spirits does damage over time, preventing Faceless Void from backtracking the full damage with Time Walk.
  • Fire Spirits applies a big attack speed slow, stopping Faceless Void from doing many attacks while in Chronosphere.
  • Sun Ray can heal allies and damage Faceless Void from outside Chronosphere.
  • Supernova can be cast outside of Chronosphere, forcing Faceless Void to step away from it, lest he'll take a lot of damage
Pudge icon.png
  • Meat Hook can pull an ally out of Chronosphere.
  • Rot will keep damaging Void if he toggled it before Chronosphere,but you can lower your hp for faceless void.
  • Flesh Heap will help Pudge survive through the Chronosphere with enough stacks, and follow with Dismember.
Shadow Demon icon.png
  • Disruption can banish Faceless Void or an ally in Chronosphere, making it less effective of an ability.
  • Faceless Void's illusions created by Disruption will not get stunned by Chronosphere, allowing Shadow Demon to attack Faceless Void in his Chronosphere.
  • Casting Disruption after releasing Shadow Poison charges will make Time Walk unable to backtrack the damage.
  • Shadow Poison is a good way to deal damage as the initial damage and the release damage can't both be Time Walked at the same time.
  • Demonic Purge is a great slow, useful to force out a Time Walk early and can break Time Lock with Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter.
Sven icon.png
  • Warcry can absorb damage while allies are trapped in Chronosphere.
Vengeful Spirit icon.png

Others[edit]

Items[edit]

  • Orchid Malevolence icon.png Orchid Malevolence can render Faceless Void unable to use his abilities in a team fight or prevent him from escaping a chase.

Good against...[edit]

Anti-Mage icon.png
  • Chronosphere provides excellent lockdown against Anti-Mage, allowing for reliable kills in all stages of the game.
  • Time Dilation while Blink and Counterspell are on cooldown will make these abilities unusable for a long time, shutting down his mobility and defensiveness.
  • Faceless Void's low mana pool makes him a poor target for Mana Void, although he is very vulnerable should Anti-Mage burn all of his mana.
Lifestealer icon.png
  • Chronosphere provides excellent lockdown against Rage.
  • Faceless Void's Time Lock stops Lifestealer from getting health regeneration from auto-attacks
Bloodseeker icon.png
  • Time Walk will not make Rupture deal damage for the distance jumped and can be used to quickly escape from Blood Rite.
Bristleback icon.png
  • Time Dilation while Quill Spray and Viscous Nasal Goo are on cooldown will make these abilities unusable for a long time, rendering Bristleback nearly useless.
  • Bristleback cannot turn inside the Chronosphere, which makes it easy to attack him from the front, completely bypassing his passive damage reduction.
Invoker icon.png
  • Time Walk can easily avoid Invoker's combo damage if doesn't have disables.
  • Chronosphere will reveal Invoker during Ghost Walk.
  • All of Invoker's hidden cooldowns are affected by Time Dilation, so Faceless Void can easily slow him down a lot.
Mars icon.png
  • Time Dilation while Spear of Mars and God's Rebuke are on cooldown will make these abilities unusable for a long time, rendering Mars nearly useless.
  • Mars cannot turn inside the Chronosphere, which makes it easy to attack him from the back, bypassing Bulwark completely.
Morphling icon.png
  • Time Dilation affects Morphling's low cooldown spells, making them unusable for a long time, rendering Morphling nearly useless.
  • Morphling cannot use Attribute Shift while he is inside Chronosphere which makes it easy to kill him.
Necrophos icon.png
  • Time Dilation while Death Pulse and Reaper's Scythe are on cooldown will make these abilities unusable for a long time, rendering Necrophos nearly useless.
  • Necrophos cannot use Ghost Shroud while he is inside Chronosphere which makes it easy to kill him.
Queen of Pain icon.png
  • Time Dilation affects Queen of Pain's low cooldown abilities, making them unusable for a long time, rendering Queen of Pain nearly useless.
  • Chronosphere provides excellent lockdown against Queen of Pain, allowing for reliable kills in all stages of the game.
Razor icon.png
  • Time Walk can break Static Link very quickly, preventing Razor from building up attack damage.
Rubick icon.png
  • Time Dilation, while Spell Steal with Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter is on cooldown will make it unusable for a long time, reducing Rubick's potential.
  • Rubick's own Chronosphere stolen with Spell Steal cannot stun Faceless Void.
Slark icon.png
  • Time Dilation while Dark Pact and Pounce are on cooldown will make these abilities unusable for a long time, reducing his escape potential. However, Time Dilation is dispellable with Dark Pact so it needs to be timed well.
  • Chronosphere will not reveal Slark during Shadow Dance, but covers the whole duration of Shadow Dance making him unable to use it to attack or escape. Slark still receives the regeneration benefit from Shadow Dance.
Storm Spirit icon.png
  • Time Dilation while Static Remnant and Electric Vortex are on cooldown will make these abilities unusable for a long time, reducing Storm Spirit's potential.
  • Faceless Void can catch Storm Spirit during Ball Lightning with a well-timed Chronosphere or Time Walk.
Weaver icon.png
  • Time Dilation while Shukuchi and Geminate Attack are on cooldown will make these abilities unusable for a long time, reducing Weaver's escape potential.
  • Chronosphere will reveal Weaver during Shukuchi.

Disruptor icon.png
Enigma icon.png

  • Outworld Devourer can attack from outside the Chronosphere to steal intelligence as to maximize damage from Sanity's Eclipse.
Phoenix icon.png
  • Chronosphere can be an ideal set up for Supernova to follow up, as fewer heroes will be able to attack it.
