Bad against...[edit]

Elder Titan icon.png
Elder Titan
  • Echo Stomp and Astral Spirit allow the enemy team to coordinate a kill on Terrorblade before he can Sunder.
  • Natural Order cripples Terrorblade's armor that he crucially needs to survive based on his slow strength gain.
Lina icon.png
Lina
Luna icon.png
Luna
  • Eclipse can often kill Terrorblade before he can use Sunder, this becomes quicker if Luna purchases Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter.
  • Moon Glaives combined with Lunar Blessing can destroy Terrorblade's illusions in no time.
  • Luna loves going Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere which gives her very high advantage when picking a fight against Terrorblade because it can block Sunder, which is Terroblade's only single-targeted ability.
  • In addition, Terrorblade doesn't like purchasing disabling items, which is only solution to break Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere.
Shadow Shaman icon.png
Shadow Shaman
  • Ether Shock can destroy Terrorblade's illusions.
  • Hex prevents him to use Sunder or Manta Style icon.png Manta Style in bad situations.
  • Shackles not only that prevents him to use Sunder, but he has no way to cancel it.
  • Mass Serpent Ward can help Shadow Shaman push faster than Terrorblade even in Metamorphosis.
Abaddon icon.png
Abaddon
  • Abaddon is one of the worst targets for Sunder, because it will activate Borrowed Time allowing him to negate its effects.
  • Aphotic Shield is an excellent ability to save an ally on which Terrorblade used Sunder, and to destroy Terrorblade's illusions.
Ember Spirit icon.png
Ember Spirit
  • Ember Spirit can deal devastating damage to illusion heroes like Terrorblade with Sleight of Fist. Terrorblade has no way of preventing Ember Spirit from getting Activate Fire Remnant off and additionally Ember Spirit's ability to fight from long range as well as his wide skill set won't give a chance for Terrorblade to get Sunder off.
Dazzle icon.png
Dazzle
  • Shallow Grave is an excellent ability to save an ally on which Terrorblade used Sunder.
  • Shadow Wave can destroy Terrorblade's illusions.
  • In a case similar to Eye of the Storm, Weave, can reduce Terrorblade's armor, and due to his pathetic strength gain, he will be rendered worthless in teamfights.
Necrophos icon.png
Necrophos
  • Reaper's Scythe can often kill Terrorblade before he has time to save himself with Sunder.
  • Ill-timed Sunder will always make Terrorblade vulnerable to Reaper's Scythe.
Outworld Devourer icon.png
Outworld Devourer
  • Arcane Orb can destroy all of his illusions with ease and it deals pure damage against the real Terrorblade so his high armor is useless.
Razor icon.png
Razor
  • Plasma Field can destroy Terrorblade's illusions.
  • Static Link along with armor item can make Terrorblade's attacks tickle, while Razor's attacks can hit like a truck.
  • Unstable Current can discourage Terrorblade to use Sunder, and also gives Razor high mobility, thus nullifying effects of Reflection.
  • Eye of the Storm along with Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter can quickly melt Terrorblade's armor, and due to his pathetic strength gain, he will be rendered worthless in teamfights.
Sven icon.png
Sven
  • Great Cleave quickly clears Terrorblade's illusions.
  • God's Strength allows him to fight Terrorblade and out-damage him.
  • Warcry is very effective against Terrorblade's physical-only damage.
  • Though Sven should be cautious about Sunder as it pierces Spell Immunity.
Timbersaw icon.png
Timbersaw
  • Timbersaw dishes out heavy burst damage which is great for taking down Terrorblade's illusions.
  • Many stacks of high level Reactive Armor plus another armor item can make Terrorblade's attacks tickle.
Tinker icon.png
Tinker
  • Tinker is one of the best counter pushers in the game.
  • An Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter upgraded Laser allows Tinker to blind Terrorblade's illusions.
Underlord icon.png
Underlord
  • Firestorm quickly clears Terrorblade's illusions.
  • Pit of Malice can trap Terrorblade, as he has no escape mechanisms.
  • Terrorblade has nothing to intercept Underlord's team when he uses Dark Rift.
Zeus icon.png
Zeus
  • Arc Lightning and Lightning Bolt can easily burst Terrorblade and his illusions.
  • Static Field automatically hits everything in a big radius, taking a huge chunk of health out of Terrorblade's illusions, regardless how much health they have.

Others[edit]

Items[edit]

  • Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere will prevent Sunder, Terrorblade has no solutions to waste its cooldown, in addition. Terrorblade doesn't like purchasing disabling items, which is only solution to break the cooldown from Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere.
  • Orchid Malevolence icon.png Orchid Malevolence will prevent Terrorblade from using his abilities; however, this can be removed with Manta Style icon.png Manta Style.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon.png Scythe of Vyse and Nullifier icon.png Nullifier will prevent Terrorblade from using his abilities, and unlike silence, hex cannot be removed with Manta Style icon.png Manta Style.
  • Lotus Orb icon.png Lotus Orb for negating Sunder's effect. (Terrorblade's health will be set to a minimum percentage if he previously had less).
  • Maelstrom icon.png Maelstrom and Mjollnir icon.png Mjollnir are very effective for destroying illusions.
  • Satanic icon.png Satanic can quickly nullify effects of Sunder.
  • Skull Basher icon.png Skull Basher and Abyssal Blade icon.png Abyssal Blade can prevent Terrorblade from using his abilities, this item is very effective on heroes with high attack speed and high attack damage.

Good against...[edit]

Ancient Apparition icon.png
Ancient Apparition
  • Sunder is not affected by Ice Blast and will still swap health with any target as usual.
Chaos Knight icon.png
Chaos Knight
  • Reflection will reflect and damage Phantasm illusions.
  • Terrorblade's high armour negates most of Chaos Knight's physical damage.
Viper icon.png
Viper
  • Almost all of Viper minimap icon.png Viper's damage revolves exclusively around single-target damage-over-time effects. Furthermore, without any hard disables, Terrorblade can almost always get a Sunder off.
  • Viper is very slow moving and Corrosive Skin doesn't protect against physical damage, meaning that Terrorblade under Metamorphosis can quickly kill Viper.
Techies icon.png
Techies
  • Techies mines can be destroyed by Terrorblade's spammable illusions.
  • Terrorblade can push without the fear of dying from mines; he can instead use his illusions to push.
Shadow Fiend icon.png
Shadow Fiend
  • The Reflection of Shadow Fiend cause Presence of the Dark Lord to affect Shadow Fiend, reducing his armor and making it easier for Terrorblade to kill him. Also, Shadow Fiend doesn't have lots of survivability or control skills in order to escape.
  • Even if Shadow Fiend uses Requiem of Souls, Terrorblade can Sunder and kill him.
Pudge icon.png
Pudge
  • Since Sunder calculates from a percentage of HP if Terrorblade is hooked by Pudge he can immediately Sunder Pudge and kill him, although Pudge can deny himself with Rot
  • Pudge can only lock down one hero with Dismember so Terrorblade's illusions can kill him even if the real Terrorblade is targeted.
Anti-Mage icon.png
Anti-Mage
  • Reflection will reflect Mana Break back to him.
  • Reflection will quickly wipe out the illusions from Anti-Mage's Manta Style.
Sniper icon.png
Sniper
  • Sunder can save himself or his allies from Assassinate.
  • A well farmed Terrorblade is stronger than Sniper.
Meepo icon.png
Meepo
  • Even without a Black King Bar, reflection can send Geostrike back to each Meepo and Sunder can change a situation against Meepo very quickly.
  • With a Black King Bar, Meepo's Poof is useless and Terrorblade's Metamorphosis will help him attack the weakest one.

Others[edit]

Works well with...[edit]

Dazzle icon.png
Dazzle
  • Shallow Grave protects Terrorblade from death, giving him more time to use his Sunder and leaves his Sundered target on the lowest possible HP.
Oracle icon.png
Oracle
  • Fate's Edict offsets some of Terrorblade's weakness to magic damage.
  • False Promise can keep Terrorblade alive, allowing him to cast Sunder.
Shadow Demon icon.png
Shadow Demon
  • Disruption creates even more powerful illusions than Conjure Image increasing pushing power. It can be useful to give him a chance to use Sunder as well.

Others[edit]

Items[edit]

  • Tranquil Boots (Active) icon.png Tranquil Boots heal the user after Terrorblade has used Sunder to gain HP for himself, keeping both parties on the map.
