I think Riven wins this no question.

A shield, two stuns and a steriod/execution ult would easily blow up Wukong, unless you waste abilities on his clone.

She has one stun and a knockup, but as i stated before...it depends if one has mastered their Champion.

I main Wukong. Riven has a slight advantage, but there's a lot of room for skillful play on both sides. Riven's shield and stun both disrupt Wukong's harass combo, but Wukong's burst is still better, and it will win him the lane if Riven can't predict where he's going with Decoy.

Riven's strong point here is in her ability to turn Wukong's pokes into hard engages, which she wins.

Fed Wukong is much scarier in team fights. He's one of the hardest bruisers to kite and has incredible damage output nearly on carry level. And he gets TONS of tankiness from his passive, and he jukes like a beast, and he can ignore upwards of 70% of your armor if he builds LW.


% armor pen doesn't stack additively it stacks multiplicably

Wukong will rush tabi wriggle against riven, while riven will go tabi + 2 doran blades

Wukong will have 120 armor at level 7 and 1030 HP.
Riven will have 81 armor at level 7 and 1176 HP.

after factoring Arp mastery, 15 arp runes, and wukong Q, riven has 37 effective armor
after factoring Arp mastery and 15 arp runes, wukong has 93 effective armor

wukong has 30% AS steroid. wukong can avoid riven while her ult is up easily. wukong can kite riven with his ult while doing high damage to her.

wukong weakness to riven is lower base HP regen and reliance on mana

I don't see wukong losing in exchanges once level 7 rolls around, and his harass is better

Speaking from experience, Riven has the advantage in this match-up. Her shield, instant PBAoE stun, non-target-reliant damage, and cooldown-based mechanics all give her an edge over Wukong. His standard Nimbus -> CB -> Decoy poke is utterly countered by her kit.

Riven wins.

Wukong's "godlike harass" is easily countered with a Regrowth Pendant(a LOT of personal experience with this) or Riven getting enough hits off with a vamp scepter. On top of that, she has a health shield that comes up only one to two seconds after Wukong's harass abilities do.

On top of that, Riven has 10.4 base health regen with a 0.9 level scaling. Compare this to Wukong's 5.1 base health regen with 0.65 level scaling.

To put it simply, Riven has many more advantages over Wukong in lane. If both players have equal skill, Wukong shouldn't win his lane without assistance from the jungler.

Riven never rushes armor pen and she doesnt generally rush armor other than ninja tabi (she needs AD too much)

Wukong always rushes tabi wriggle and gets over 100 armor by level 5 with those items, and he has built in armor ignore (that stacks with LW for later).

Wukong WILL win exchanges once level 6-7 rolls around and riven will have a hard time denying him farm because if she uses her Q or E to go for him, she cant use it in the exchange. It is also impossible for riven to kill wukong 1v1 if both have their abilities up, but wukong can and will be able to kill her at some point

the only significant disadvantage for wukong is his reliance on mana.

I've seen this match and Wu wins

because while riven is in hot pursuit of wu tearing his heart out and disrupting his escape

wu is usually just leading riven into a gank

and when riven's life gets low Wu always comes back to nimbus to finish his meal

Wukong would win.
Better combo, the effect after his Q, attack speed from E, quick knock up and decent dmg from his ult. Riven has exhaust, W after it's thrown on you, and then come back at her.
