Bad against...[edit]

Axe icon.png
  • The combination of Counter Helix and Berserker's Call can disable multiple Meepos and deal heavy area damage.
  • Axe's natural high survivability makes it difficult to burst him down with Poof or chip away at his health with Ransack.
  • Culling Blade will disband Meepo immediately if any of his clones fall below the threshold.
Earthshaker icon.png
  • Echo Slam deals catastrophic damage against a cluster of Meepos and anyone nearby.
  • He can potentially stunlock any number of Meepos for a fairly long duration, often enough to finish one off.
Elder Titan icon.png
  • Echo Stomp can completely disable multiple Meepos for 5 seconds.
  • Astral Spirit will affect Meepo clones, as they don’t count as illusions. Elder Titan can receive a massive amount of damage, armor and movement speed from each Meepo.
  • With Natural Order, Elder Titan’s mere existence causes Meepo to be disadvantaged, due to the aura that completely negates his base armor and magic resistance. Combining Astral Spirit with Natural Order allows Elder Titan to easily kill any Meepo within a second, depending on how much damage he gains from Astral Spirit.
  • Earth Splitter deals over 30%/40%/50% of each Meepo’s max hp, and is even stronger if the Meepos are near Elder Titan due to Natural Order.
Ember Spirit icon.png
Kunkka icon.png
  • Tidebringer's cleave damage can wear down Meepo's clones quickly. It can also give Meepo problems in the lane, due to his melee range and initially low health pool.
  • Ghostship and Torrent can effectively disable Meepo while dealing heavy damage. If Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter is purchased, Ghostship can also drag the Meepo clones out of position and set up a teammate's follow-up abilities.
  • X Marks the Spot prevents attempts to escape using Poof.
Lion icon.png
  • Finger of Death's burst damage can kill him due to his low health pool, and Ethereal Blade icon.png Ethereal Blade only makes it worse. If Lion purchased an Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter, the situation only grows worse.
  • If Meepo ganks Lion with Poof and Earthbind, he will be an easy target for Earth Spike & AoE Hex from his level 25 talent.
Mars icon.png
Monkey King icon.png
Pangolier icon.png
  • Pangolier's arsenal deals heavy damage in a wide area, make him deadly even for a Meepo with a high magic resistance.
  • Shield Crash can easily give him a ridiculous 90% damage resistance, resulting in a near unkillable Pangolier in a short amount of time.
  • Rolling Thunder disrupts Meepo's initiation or escaping.
  • Swashbuckle can hit all of Meepo clones.
  • Lucky Shot can disarm Meepo's clones.
Phantom Assassin icon.png
  • Phantom Strike allows Phantom Assassin to jump on his clones.
  • Meepo's low health pool can burst down by Coup de Grace critical strike.
Sven icon.png
Terrorblade icon.png
  • Being one of if not the hardest carry in the game, a free farm Terrorblade is almost always going to destroy Meepo in the later stages of the game with Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar and Metamorphosis.
  • Reflection will affect all Meepo clones and slow them.
  • Sunder can give Terrorblade a chance to single out one of his meepos and quickly remove his presence.
Venomancer icon.png
  • Aggressively Poofing and Earthbinding is not going to end well against Venomancer, as he will be an easy target for Poison Nova.
  • Venomancer constant slows greatly reduce Meepo's mobility.
Viper icon.png
  • Nethertoxin prevents the lifesteal from Ransack. The silence from Viper's level 25 talent also prevents Meepo escaping with Poof.
  • Meepo and his clones have a lack of magic resistance, so they're vulnerable to Poison Attack & Viper Strike directed onto one clone.
Winter Wyvern icon.png
  • Winter's Curse in late game is pretty much the end for Meepo or any of his nearby allies. Natural counter for Winter's Curse like Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere or Lotus Orb icon.png Lotus Orb is meaningless to her if she can land it on one of your clones.

Others[edit]

  • Heroes who can stun multiple units at once: Spirit Breaker minimap icon.png Spirit Breaker, Invoker minimap icon.png Invoker.
  • Heroes with powerful area-of-effect disables can initiate on Meepo and his clones and shut him down, such as Enigma minimap icon.png Enigma, Invoker minimap icon.png Invoker, Magnus minimap icon.png Magnus, Puck minimap icon.png Puck, and Sand King minimap icon.png Sand King.
  • Because only one clone needs to be killed in order to kill Meepo, heroes that excel at singling out enemies can also be a detriment to him, such as Batrider minimap icon.png Batrider, Beastmaster minimap icon.png Beastmaster, and Clockwerk minimap icon.png Clockwerk.
  • Batrider minimap icon.png Batrider's Flaming lasso can become annoying when Batrider has a team nearby to kill the disabled Meepo. His Firefly is also good AoE damage, which when stacked with sticky napalm (which is AoE too and can hit all Meepos), he becomes a very formidable target.
  • Tiny minimap icon.png Tiny's Avalanche affects all Meepos and Toss can send a singular Meepo into death.
  • Shadow Fiend minimap icon.png Shadow Fiend's Requiem of Souls not only slow all Meepos, but it can also kill the weakest Meepo instantly if the ultimate is released at the right position and time. He can also go a build entirely dedicated to magical damage, which includes building a Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar.

Items[edit]

Good against...[edit]

Anti-Mage icon.png
  • Earthbind can prevent Anti-Mage from using Blink, allowing Meepo to kill him with attacks and Ransack.
Legion Commander icon.png
  • When Legion Commander uses Duel on one Meepo, he can use his other Meepos to kill her. If he wasn't dueled, he can help the teammate who was duelled to give the teammate the damage instead of Legion Commander.
  • However, if Legion Commander picked up an Aghanim's Scepter and she duels one Meepo, that might be the end of Meepo if Legion managed to gather enough damage from previous duels.
Phantom Lancer icon.png
  • Poof will destroy Phantom Lancer's illusions within a short time.
Phoenix icon.png
  • Earthbind can prevent Phoenix from using Icarus Dive, the only escaping mechanism of this hero.
  • Heavy burst damage from Poof can easily kill Phoenix even when it slows down all the Meepos with Fire Spirits.
  • Meepo's clones destroy the Phoenix Sun from Supernova in no time, even when they are slowed down by Fire Spirits.
  • Meepo's naturally high magic resistance gives Phoenix a hard time with bursting him down. He can even turn the tide if Icarus Dive is on cooldown.
Queen of Pain icon.png
  • Chain of Earthbinds prevents her from using Blink, allowing Meepo to quickly kill her with Poof and attacks.
  • Meepo tends to buy items with attributes, mitigating Queen of Pain's magical burst.
Storm Spirit icon.png
  • Earthbind, like any root, inhibits usage of Ball Lightning, eliminating Storm Spirit's mobility.

Others[edit]

  • Pugna minimap icon.png Pugna's Nether Ward doesn't really hurt Meepo since he usually buys attribute items to tank up and can be killed very quickly by 4 clones. Decrepify can amplify Poof's damage should Pugna use it to avoid Meepo's right clicking.
  • Mirana minimap icon.png Mirana cannot use Leap while rooted by Earthbind and her Moonlight Shadow is countered by Meepo's true sight that is provided by Earthbind.
  • Skywrath Mage minimap icon.png Skywrath Mage's abilities are single targeted and he can't use Mystic Flare to its fullest potential, since all Meepos spread the damage between them. He also has no disables to prevent Meepo from Poofing to another one (unless he can get Ancient Seal off first).
  • Arc Warden minimap icon.png Arc Warden's Flux is meaningless against Meepo who loves to group up. Meepo is also a very good gap closer, so Arc Warden's Magnetic Field becomes useless.
  • Night Stalker minimap icon.png Night Stalker's most skills are single targeted which allows other Meepo to Poof, Earthbind and kill him.
  • Slark minimap icon.png Slark's Dark Pact and Pounce can deny only one Earthbind and Poof can penetrate Shadow Dance if he doesn't build Black King Bar.
  • Spectre minimap icon.png Spectre's Haunt with Radiance may be useful for counter Meepo but if Meepo finds the real one, Spectral Dagger is useless. Non-Black King Bar heroes like her will suffer from all of Meepo's abilities. Meepo is also a very large counter as Spectre takes a long time to come online, normally farming jungle or lane, which makes her an easy target for Meepo ganks.
  • Tinker minimap icon.png Tinker who can't fight multiple heroes will suffer greatly against Ransack and Earthbind. However, Tinker with Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter can blind multiple Meepos permanently with Laser, killing them before Poof can come off of cooldown.
  • Juggernaut minimap icon.png Juggernaut's Omnislash is meaningless for Meepo who can share the damage across clones to save other allies.
  • Nature's Prophet minimap icon.png Nature's Prophet is heavily countered by Meepo, not only Meepo can kill the Treants and Necronomicon summons (if he has it) with a single poof, but he can also stop Natures from using his teleport, and can gain vision inside sprout.
  • Medusa minimap icon.png Medusa's Stone Gaze may be useful Meepo who hard to turn behind Medusa all but same as Wraith King minimap icon.png Wraith King who doesn't have good disable. Medusa, however, becomes a big problem with a Mjollnir icon.png Mjollnir and some other items, her huge AoE from static link and her splitshot allowing her to easily kill Meepo.
  • Luna minimap icon.png Luna's Eclipse spreads damage to each target, so Meepo won't take all the damage.
  • Lifestealer minimap icon.png Lifestealer's Rage and Open wounds become useless when Meepo has 4 or more clones, as Ransack will heal Meepo too quickly for Lifestealer to take down.
  • Naga Siren minimap icon.png Naga Siren's Song of the Siren maybe useful but Poof will destroy all of her illusions.

Works well with...[edit]

Disruptor icon.png
  • Glimpse and Kinetic Field allow Meepo to land Earthbind more easily.
  • Enemies pinned by Earthbind make easy targets for Static Storm, which prevents them from fighting back against Meepo with disables.
Kunkka icon.png
  • X Marks the Spot makes it easier for Meepo to land Earthbind.
  • Ghostship and Torrent combine well with Meepo's kit, allowing the two of them to quickly eliminate multiple enemies. The rum buff from Ghostship also makes Meepo and his clones much more resilient to damage.
Silencer icon.png
  • Global Silence shuts down many of Meepo's more dangerous counters, which employ either area-of-effect disables or high area damage.
Sven icon.png
  • Storm Hammer locks down enemies to set up Meepo's other abilities and allow both of them to take the enemy down. Meepo can also initiate with Earthbind to pin down enemies and set up a multi-target Storm Hammer.
  • Warcry's area armor buff makes Meepo's clones more durable against physical damage.
Dazzle icon.png
  • Shallow Grave saves lowest health Meepo when he is in a pickle. Even more powerful with Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter with area effect.
  • Shadow Wave heals multiple Meepo's at once, making him survive longer. It also deals alot of damage to the target all the Meepo's are close to.
  • Bad Juju armor reduction helps with applying the attack damage of all the Meepo's more quickly.

Others[edit]

  • Techies minimap icon.png Techies can pressure the enemy during the early game and fend off enemy pushes throughout, allowing Meepo to gain a farm advantage over his enemy.
  • Nature's Prophet minimap icon.png Nature's Prophet is a very strong split pusher, creating space for Meepo's rapid and widespread farming.
  • Heroes with reliable setup abilities to help Meepo land Earthbind and Poof: Vengeful Spirit minimap icon.png Vengeful Spirit, Naga Siren minimap icon.png Naga Siren, Wraith King minimap icon.png Wraith King, Slardar minimap icon.png Slardar, Shadow Shaman minimap icon.png Shadow Shaman, Lion minimap icon.png Lion
  • Heroes with large area control that can group a lot of enemy's together for several seconds can set Meepo up for his Blink Poof combo hitting multiple heroes and dealing massive damage: Enigma minimap icon.png Enigma, Earthshaker minimap icon.png Earthshaker, Magnus minimap icon.png Magnus

Items[edit]

  • Helm of the Dominator icon.png Helm of the Dominator increases attack speed of all Meepos under the aura, helping them gain more health from Ransack.
