Bad against...[edit]

Anti-Mage icon.png
  • Blink allows Anti-Mage to hunt down Jakiro, who has no way to escape.
  • Counterspell protects Anti-Mage against all of Jakiro's magic damage.
  • Mana Void is very effective against Jakiro because of his high mana.
Clockwerk icon.png
  • Battery Assault prevents Jakiro from casting spells as all his spells have very long cast times.
  • Jakiro is also an easy target for Clockwerk's Hookshot + Power Cogs combo, as he has little mobility and no escape.
  • Alternatively, if the enemy Clockwerk traps one of his own allies or Jakiro's allies in the cogs, it gives Jakiro an ideal setup to punish Clockwerk and his ally or to save Jakiro's ally, respectively.
Lifestealer icon.png
  • Rage grants Lifestealer immunity to all of Jakiro's spells. Note: magic resistance will not dispel the attack speed slow effects from Dual Breath and Liquid Fire.
Oracle icon.png
  • Fate's Edict allowed Oracle to make allies spell immune, allowing him to save allies from Jakiro's spells.
  • Fate's Edict can be cast onto Jakiro to disarm him and prevent him from pushing with his Liquid Fire.
  • False Promise allows Oracle to free allies from Jakiro's Ice Path.
Rubick icon.png
  • Fade Bolt can hinder Jakiro's early pushing power by clearing creep waves.
  • All of Jakiro's spells are great for Rubick to Spell Steal.
  • Ice Path is a great spell for Rubick so steal, since Rubick has no cast time on stolen abilities, making Rubick's version of Ice Path much more reliable than Jakiro's.
  • Macropyre is a great way for Rubick to farm.
Silencer icon.png
Skywrath Mage icon.png
  • Ancient Seal can silence Jakiro up to 6 seconds. Also, it makes Jakiro vulnerable to magical spells.
  • Skywrath Mage can burst down Jakiro with his high damage magical spells.



Good against...[edit]

Axe icon.png
  • Axe is a hero that is very vulnerable against magical nuke damage and disables, Jakiro is perfect against him with all of his spells.
Broodmother icon.png
  • Broodmother and her Spiderlings need to be very careful during the laning stage against Jakiro, as Jakiro can take down Broodmother's Spiderlings, preventing her from pushing.
Chen icon.png
  • Jakiro's damage over time force Chen to use Hand of God prematurely, potentially wasting chance to save his allies during teamfight.
  • Macropyre can also disrupt Chen's jungling work.
Chaos Knight icon.png
  • With his AoE damage, Jakiro can easily kill Chaos Knight's Phantasm illusions.
  • Chaos Knight usually doesn't buy a Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar, making him vulnerable to an Ice Path into Macropyre combination.
Meepo icon.png
  • All of Jakiro's skills are Area of Effect, which can easily affect all Meepos in a targeted area.
Nature's Prophet icon.png
  • Jakiro's skill arsenal can ruin Nature's Prophet's gameplay: Dual Breath and Liquid Fire can clear treants from Nature's Call while simultaneously slowing Nature's Prophet, Ice Path can disrupt Nature's Prophet's escaping attempt with Teleportation and Macropyre can not only clear treants from Nature's Call, but also can free Jakiro from Sprout.
Phantom Lancer icon.png
  • Jakiro's spells inflict AoE damage, meaning he can take down Phantom Lancer's illusion army very quickly.
Riki icon.png
  • Riki can easily be caught in an Ice Path and Macropyre combo as he finishes Tricks of the Trade.
Templar Assassin icon.png
  • All of Jakiro's active skills can be targeted on an area, which is effective at forcing Templar Assassin to move should she Meld away.
  • Many of Jakiro's spells utilize damage-over-time mechanics, which makes it easy to strip away layers of Refraction.
Treant Protector icon.png
  • With Dual Breath, Liquid Fire and Macropyre Jakiro can quickly remove all Living Armor from a target.
  • Ice Path allows Jakiro to prevent Treant Protector from using Overgrowth while staying at a safe distance.


  • Jakiro's early pushing ability from Liquid Fire makes Jakiro very strong against heroes, that take a long time to get online: Morphling minimap icon.png Morphling, Naga Siren minimap icon.png Naga Siren, Spectre minimap icon.png Spectre.

Works well with...[edit]

Dark Seer icon.png
  • Vacuum is a good spell to help Jakiro to land its devastating AoE spells.
Faceless Void icon.png
  • Time Dilations slow stacks with Jakiro's Dual Breath. This enables them to chase down fleeing heroes.
  • Chronosphere provides a great setup for Jakiro's spells.
Kunkka icon.png
  • Torrent will stun enemies for 1.6 secs, and further slow them for an additional 1.75 to 4 seconds, allowing Jakiro to initiate any of his spells with ease.
  • X Marks the Spot makes landing an Ice Path very easy. Should Kunkka follow-up with a Torrent of his own, the enemy will be disabled for a long duration.
  • Ghostship has an incredibly large stun radius and deals high damage, and is capable of gathering enemies into a cluster should Kunkka have Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter. Used in conjunction with Macropyre, Jakiro can easily finish off weakened foes from the initial impact of Ghostship.
Magnus icon.png
  • Skewer is also capable of bringing enemies together into a bunch, though they will only be slowed, making timing essential to ensure that Jakiro's spells land accurately.
  • Reverse Polarity gathers enemies into a tight cluster, making it very easy for Jakiro to unleash his full repertoire of spells onto his enemies
Shadow Demon icon.png
  • Disruption and Demonic Purge are easy ways to land your Ice Path and make successful ganks from a moderate distance.
Treant Protector icon.png
  • Overgrowth is really helpful for Jakiro to land his AoE spells.


  • Heroes with trap abilities can keep enemies in place for Jakiro to aim his spells: Clockwerk minimap icon.png Clockwerk, Disruptor minimap icon.png Disruptor, Tusk minimap icon.png Tusk.
