Neeko Strengths & Weaknesses

Great pick potential with her Tangle-BarbsE especially when the target is hiding behind their minion wave. Her Blooming BurstQ provides for a good amount of wave clear which helps her get lane priority.

Extremely useful in team fights due to her Ultimate Pop BlossomR CC and damage. This allows her team to play around her and her Jungler to gank her.

Her Passive combined with her Ultimate Pop BlossomR can be a deadly combo. If she goes AD, she can run any enemy down if they don’t have some form of CC ability on them.


Very squishy and can be easily gotten rid of if she is CC’d. This is especially true if she is going for the AD build.

Can’t be very effective if the enemy sets proper vision around and can notice Neeko changing her forms or hiding in a brush to land her Tangle-BarbsE.

Due to her pushing power, she can be very susceptible to ganks especially after she has used up her ShapesplitterW.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Neeko is Average

Your champion is weak in the early game. Avoid fighting until you have quite a few levels behind you. Once you have an item and some levels under your belt, you can look for skirmishes with the enemy.

Focus on farming and picking up as much farm as possible in the early game. This will make you more of a threat in the later parts of the game.

Rotate and move around the map if your bot lane decides to rotate to the top lane after securing the bottom lane tower.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Neeko is Strong

When no team fights are occurring, go to a side lane and push. It’s important that you continue to farm during the mid-game so you can get your items as quickly as possible. Do not just stay mid if you can’t get anything done.

Flank in team fights to make getting on the enemy backline easier. Use your ShapesplitterW to speed yourself up to get off a good Ultimate Pop BlossomR.

Look for picks during the mid-game. If you can pick someone off with the help from your allies, you can abuse their death timer to earn more gold and possibly take a tower, an objective or get more kills.

Late game
25+ min
Neeko is Average

Do not fight in the late game unless your Ultimate Pop BlossomR is up. It is crucial that you only commit or look for fights when it is available as you’re going to miss out on extra damage and CC.

Your Ultimate Pop BlossomR will be on a shorter cooldown in the later stages of the game. If you can find an opportunity to do so, use it to catch out someone who is isolated and alone, too far forward or way out of position.

Peel for your carries to keep them alive for longer. If your allies die quickly, there will be little chance that you will win the team fight.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

Neeko's Blooming BurstQ should help her wave clear quite quickly, along with landing some poke here and there.

Once she gets her Tangle-BarbsE, her all-in potential with her Tangle-BarbsE and auto-attacks become quite potent.

Getting her Ultimate Pop BlossomR will skyrocket her all-in potential. When used correctly with her Tangle-BarbsE, she can land a five-man Ultimate Pop BlossomR on the enemy.

Mid game15 - 25 min

Neeko is a bit reliant on items, so she will get powerful once she gets her core items. She should be able to maintain her range from her targets with her Tangle-BarbsE and Blooming BurstQ.

Her Ultimate Pop BlossomR allows her to set death brushes quite easily. She should also be in objective fights as her Ultimate Pop BlossomR AoE will be very strong in such situations.

Neeko will get another power spike once she can put a point in her Ultimate Pop BlossomR. It will reduce the ability's cooldown drastically.

Late game25+ min

Once she is full build, she will be able to deal a lot of DPS and decimate the enemy team. She should try to catch out any enemy who is trying to farm in the side lanes.

She will want to use the vision and play around with it to set death brushes and traps for her enemies. Her pick potential is massive during this phase of the game.

Proper usage of her ShapesplitterW should translate into multiple easy kills during this game phase. This is due to the enemy team's inability to see the Ultimate Pop BlossomR animation on Neeko while she is disguised.
