If I'm up for some MOBA fun, playing "Mobile Legends" is a great choice for me. Tune in for my exclusive guides.

Aldous is a late game monster. He can very well change the course of the battle by stacking up damage. He can even almost one-hit fragile opponent like most marksmen, mages and assassins. This is most especially once he has filled up his damage stacks. When this happens, Aldous can almost be unstoppable. This is exactly why he is feared amongst the other heroes in Mobile Legend’s Land of Dawn. However, this does not definitely mean Aldous cannot be countered. There are actually a few heroes, whilst applying strategies, that can anti Aldous. Well, this guide will definitely discuss how to counter Aldous in Mobile Legends.

Recommended Heroes and Tips for Marksmen to Counter Aldous

As I’ve said, fragile heroes like marksmen are pretty much doomed to Aldous huge burst damage. So, does that mean we won’t be using any marksman when Aldous is in the opposing team? Of course not, having a marksman in the team is very crucial to the success of the team. So we will still choose a marksman but with the right skills to counter Aldous. Marksmen who have crowd control, knockback, slow and quick escaping skills are the best counters for Aldous. Also, having high attack speed is also very important when going against Aldous. Here is a list of great marksmen to counter Aldous:

Hanabi's V.E.N.O.M Nephila Skin
Hanabi's V.E.N.O.M Nephila Skin
  • Hanabi: Her crowd controlling ultimate skill, Higanbana, makes her on top of the list in countering Aldous. This stops Aldous on her tracks, contains him and allows Hanabi to freely attack him. Higanbana can only crowd control him for a few seconds so having Hanabi only to attack him won’t be a good idea at all. It is strongly recommended that your other team members would help out in completely killing Aldous.
  • Moskov: His ability to knockback allows him to create space between him and Aldous. When done right, he may be able to stun Aldous. Although it might not control Aldous for a long time, it will still be enough for Moskov to kill him. Of course, with the help of other heroes, for sure Aldous will no longer be standing.

A Few Other Notable Marksmen

  • Lesley, Bruno, Granger, Karrie, Claude: All of these heroes have dash abilities which allows them to move from place to place instantly. This at least helps them move away from Aldous and be at an advantageous position against Aldous whether it is for escaping or for attacking.

Recommended Heroes and Tips for Mages/Assassins/Supports to Counter Aldous

Aldous’ next most likely targets would be mages, assassins and supports since most of these heroes are pretty fragile as well. If against Aldous, here are the following mages and assassins we strongly recommend to counter Aldous.

Aurora's Aquarius Skin
Aurora's Aquarius Skin


  • Aurora: Keeping her at full charge allows her to freeze a target on the next skill damage. Freezing Aldous not only stuns him for a while but also decreases her magic defense significantly. She might probably kill Aldous through a combo but it is strongly suggested that teammates should follow up.
  • Vexana: She can crowd control Aldous through her Charmed Specter. While being controlled, heroes can gang up on Aldous. Plus, she can conjure copies of enemy heroes to do her bidding.

Other Notable/Recommended Mages to Counter Aldous

  • Eudora, Cyclops, Valir, Kadita, Guinnivere, Nana: These mages have notable crowd control abilities which can greatly help in killing Aldous.

Saber's Onimaru Skin

  • Saber: Also has a great crowd control ability, His ultimate skill can CC and damage Aldous a lot.
  • Helcurt: Although he doesn’t have a CC skill, his ultimate ability helps his team escape from Aldous.
  • Natalia: Her ability to increase evasion in an area is really helpful in avoiding burst damage from Aldous.
  • Zilong: His ability to drag and stun a target is very advantageous in clashes. This is also very effective against Aldous. Although it doesn’t hold him that much long, it’s already almost enough for your team to kill him.

Kaja's Kaminari Skin
Kaja's Kaminari Skin


  • Kaja: Stunning and dragging a target is one of Kaja’s deadly ability. Aldous can easily be restrained and open for team ganging if he is crowd controlled by Kaja.
  • Angela: Although Angela doesn’t have a great CC skill to counter Aldous, her ultimate skill allows her to back up any team member instantly. Her healing and shield abilities totally help teammates being attacked by Aldous. Plus, having her on the team means the opposing team won’t be able to have an Aldous + Angela combo.

A Few Other Notable Mages/Assassins/Supports

  • Gusion, Selena, Hayabusa

Recommended Heroes and Tips for Fighters/Tanks

Fighters and Tanks are pretty solid as compared to marksmen, mages, and assassins. However, this does not necessarily mean any fighter or tank would fare well against Aldous. Well, here is a quick list of recommended fighters and tanks.

Chou's Iori Yagami Skin
Chou's Iori Yagami Skin


  • Chou: His ultimate skill totally crowd controls and kills Aldous with just one combo. Plus, he is a bit tanky and can use his two other skills to escape from Aldous. He is really a great counter for Aldous.
  • Argus: Although he doesn’t have an ultimate crowd control skill like Chou, his ultimate skill allows him to be invincible. Thus, this makes Aldous attempt to kill him completely a failure. His high burst damage would prove useless against Argus.

There are actually lots of fighters that can counter Aldous. Just make sure the fighter hero has crowd control abilities.

Akai's Imperial Assassin Skin
Akai's Imperial Assassin Skin


  • Akai: With his ultimate skill, no one is able to get near him even Aldous himself. And if Aldous is pushed to a wall through his ultimate, then this stuns him until Akai’s ultimate skill stops. This puts Akai and his team at an advantageous point wherein they can kill Aldous or flee from Aldous. Plus, Akai can also use his jump skill to easily move away from Aldous after using his ultimate skill.
  • Gatotkaca: Not only is he able to stun and crowd control Aldous. He is easily able to assist any team member through his long-range skill. He is able to jump quickly to any of his team members to crowd control Aldous.

A Few Other Notable Tanks

  • Minotaur, Franco, Tigreal

However, this passive has a 4-second cooldown so this won’t be able to save you that long. At least, it will buy you some time to retaliate to Aldous attack.

Recommended Equipment for Marksmen and Assassins

Additional Tips When Fighting Aldous

  1. When targeted with Aldous' Ultimate Skill, make sure you run towards your teammates and away from your enemies. Usually, Aldous' player would stop his ultimate skill if threatened by your teammates or his player would be confident enough to kill you if you are near his teammates.
  2. Always gang up on Aldous during the early game. He is pretty fragile during early game so he is an easy target to kill. Make sure you don't let him farm or else he'll be a monster during late game.
  3. Aim for a short game. Aldous is pretty deadly during late game especially if his stacks are already almost full.
  4. If you see Aldous on the opposing team during draft pick, make sure your team has a counter pick for him.
