karthus is countered by the majority of mid laners so long as they don't walk into his q that often. He's got a fairly unreliable escape and no actual means to defend himself which makes it easy for champions to go in and nuke him down.

Katarina is a huge hardcounter to him because he has NONE of the traits that help against her, and her passive counters his.

Leblanc and Kassadin because silence and blink out of range by the time the silence is over or if he dies.

Karthus hates assassins in general...

Also, Vladimir is funny. Great counter as Vlad > Karthus throughout the entire laning phase, and is still one of the hardest scaling mages.

people people come on...there is NO CHAMP can counter karthus, because karthus = his ULT. Only Riot can counter karthus. This doesn't mean karthus is OP and will destroy any game he plays. This just means the team playing against karthus mean needs to learn.

1. Never let karthus get kills without killing him first.
2. Dont rush in and put yourself in situation where ur low HP
3. if all else failed, try feed Karthus with kills instead of his team, a fed karthus team (where his teammates got no kills) is as good as a bad team.
4. build magic resist items
5. Take out towers and let your minions finish it for you.

any champs can kill karthus as he is very squishy. if you have problem killing him then it is not the champ but rather the player lack of skills.

Good karthus players will get their fair share of kills with the ULT, then they will use the ult to help team get easy kills. Bad Karthus which is like 99% of them out there gets kill for themselves and since karthus isnt a carry in late game other team can win easily.

I'm sorry sir, but your post is wrong in almost every way.

1) Karthus is one of the strongest lategame mages in the game. His overall damage output is enormous, and his passive gives him 7 seconds of free untargettable spellcasting. He's most likely going to die in teamfights, but he can keep doing his job even when dead.
2) There most certainly IS something like "countering karthus". Certain champions can zone him more easily than others, thus denying him of a lot of gold. If said champions happen to also scale into the lategame strongly, they can effectively contribute (a lot) more to their team than karthus can to his throughout the entire game. Vladimir is a prime example of such a counter.
3) Don't reduce him to his ultimate. Yes, it helps you get those sneaky little escape artists during the laning phase, and can net Karthus free kills, but his damage output and utility from his other spells is the main reason to play him. His damage is enormous.
4) Karthus, against certain opponents, is a potent (though high skill-cap) spell-dualist. Saying that "not being able to kill him is purely due to bad skill" is just wrong.

Having played with and against Karthus, I have to say that AP Soraka just laughs and laughs at Karthus. She starts the game zoning Karthus and doesn't stop. She pushes Karthus to his tower, and proceeds to kill him while he is under it.

If you haven't gone AP soraka, do it against Karthus and bully him around. There isn't much he can do to stop you unless his jungler gives him ALOT of support.

people that can counter karth basicaly, in my book, is anyone who can deny him kills from his ult. For example fizz's E can dodge it (idk how that logical so dont ask) vlad's bloodpool and sivirs shield. Im betting theres more but for the time being i dont know
