The sneaky Gondar, the Bounty Hunter is loved by all the pos 4 and 3 mains. He deals lethal damage, tracks Void Spirit’s movements, and escapes effortlessly with his Shadow Walk. Bounty Hunter is known to be an annoying hero right from the laning phase, as not only does he steal the Void’s gold, but he also does pure damage with his spells. Along with dealing damage, he can be played in the support position as well, itemizing the support way is also possible for him. In short, he is quite the flexible of the bunch against Void Spirit.

9. Ember Spirit

The fiery spirit of this Ember is unparalleled and it is not a surprise that he is back into the meta! Ember is an exceptional counter to Void, due to his immense physical damage as well as his mobility which allows him to chase and further lock the Void down. Being in a pure 1v1 matchup against Void. can be a hard task, especially in the late stages of the game, but Ember defies all odds and is considered to be a great counter to Void simply due to his AoE damage output along with the ability to soak up some serious damage. His flexibility allows him to obliterate Void Spirit effortlessly.

8. Death Prophet

The ghastly prophet looms over her prey, foreshadowing their existence and planning her every move towards chaos! Seeing Death Prophet in pub games is quite a rare sight in 2022, but she is a textbook counterpick to Void Spirit who can still be lethal to her if not played right. Her spammable spells make her a nuisance in the laning phase, which is even worsened if she has Spirit Siphon, making her drain Void’s health. The game can essentially be over for Void if he is silenced by Death Prophet, as he mostly has no chances to get away from the disable.

7. Slardar

Hailing from the deep seas in the menacing Slardar. His looks are quite enough to scare Void Spirit away. Slardar has high physical damage which is further amplified due to the armor corruption from his ultimate as well as the massive bash damage which both combined can easily melt Void down. Sprint can also be used by Slardar to catch the fleeting Void, he can also use a Blink Dagger to stop him in his tracks or to initiate and follow it up by Slithreen Crush. A six-slotted Void can still be disrupted by a decently farmed Slardar at any stage of the game.

What makes Slardar a great hero against Void Spirit? 

  • The brutal physical damage of Slithereen Crush and Bash of the Deep can quickly remove Void Spirit's shield and stun him for a while.
  • Corrosive Haze provides vision of Void Spirit while he is running away and Guardian Sprint allows Slardar to quickly close the gap

Items to buy on Slardar

  • Assault Cuirass - Immense armor gain, also reduces Slardar’s armor at the same time


6. Puck

Puck, the dazzling faerie dragon is a mixture of skill and flamboyance, yet he is a lethal force that can decimate the likes of Void Spirit in no time. Although, relatively a weak laner and squishy, Puck can turn the tides around if he manages to secure his early game by farming sufficiently and ganking other lanes. Silence and lockdown are aspects that shut Void down, and Puck has both of them. Void Spirit fares well against the Puck in the laning phase but the late game is where Puck shines. The right items at the right time allow him to sustain himself and deal lethal magical damage without worrying about the Void Spirit.

Why is Puck a great counter to Void Spirit? 

  • Dream Coil prevents the usage of Void Spirit's escape abilities and limits his damage output in fights almost entirely.

Items to Buy on Puck

  • Blink Dagger - Great for gap closing or initiating
  • Aghanim’s Shard and Scepter - Can lock in a spell immune Void Spirit and silence her for a longer duration with the Shard
  • Linken’s Sphere - Can block Void Spirit’s Hex or Orchid
  • Aeon Disk - Saves him from getting burst quickly from Void Spirit and also applies a basic dispel
  • Witch Blade - Increased physical damage 


5. Meepo

Whenever there’s a Meepo in a pub game against Void Spirit, chances are he is either a man with a plan or someone really suicidal! Jokes aside, Meepo is known to be a menacing counter to slippery heroes like Void Spirit. Void may have a ton of AoE damage to counter Meepo but the latter has immense survivability and lockdown in the form of lifesteal and Earthbind. Meepo can gank lanes and secure objectives before Void even has the chance to strike. Meepo dominates the early game as he can gank as soon as he gets his clone, essentially out-pacing and out-farming the Void.

Why is Meepo a great counter to Void Spirit?

  • Meepo's Earthbind can easily lockdown Void Spirit.
  • Meepo and his clones can easily burst Void Spirit's, Resonant Pulse.

Items to buy on Meepo

  • Dragon Lance - Immense stats, great during the early game
  • Heart of Tarrasque - Increased HP, useful to survive the massive burst damage from Void Spirit


4. Bane

Bane is the culprit of endless nightmares for Void Spirit fans, Bane remains a solid counter to him as Void is known to be a slippery fish while he is known to lock down heroes and punish them. He can quickly disable him by applying Enfeeble, followed by Nightmare and Grip locking him down for a good duration. The late stages of the game bear witness to utter control by Bane if he manages to use Fiend’s Grip on Void Spirit without getting caught. A skilled Bane will also save his allies from potentially lethal damage dealt by Void by using Nightmare on them at the right time.

Why is Bane great against Void Spirit? 

  • Fiend's Grip and Nightmare are very useful to lock down Void Spirit.
  • Brain Sap can be difficult for Void Spirit to deal with in the laning stage.

Items to Buy as Bane

  • Aeon Disk - Saves him from getting burst quickly from Void Spirit and also applies a basic dispel
  • Ghost Scepter - Makes him immune from physical damage from Void Spirit

  • Aghanim’s Shard - AoE Brain Sap, making it easy for him to push lanes


3. Queen of Pain

Behold the Queen of dominance! Queen of Pain is a very annoying hero for the enemy mid-laner Void Spirit in all the stages of the game. It is irritating to lane against constant spam and harassment, if overlooked then it can result in his death! She has the perfect skill set to both harass and kills the enemy Void Spirit, her mobility makes her even harder to catch. Void Spirit and her both are active as soon as they get their level 6, but her ultimate is more effective as it can quickly burst down heroes, working in tandem with her other spells, making her win the purely 1v1 matchup quite easily. You’re at the wrong end of the leash if you face off against her!

Why is QoP a great counter to Void Spirit?

  • Queen of Pain can Blink to both escapes and initiate onto Void Spirit.
  • She is also a very common Orchid Malevolence carrier, which can prevent Void Spirit from contributing much in fights.

Items to buy on QoP

  • Aghanim’s Scepter and Shard - Sonic Wave pierces spell immunity with Scepter and silences him in a small AoE if she lands on top of him after the Blink courtesy of the Shard.
  • Scythe of Vyse - Disables Void Spirit and removes him from the fight
  • Refresher’s Orb - Can refresh spells and items and use them again in quick succession to delete Void Spirit from the fight

  • Black King Bar - Provides spell immunity from all of Void Spirit's magic damage spells, making you invulnerable in the fight
  • Eul's Scepter - Provides a basic dispel, can be used to dodge Homing Missle or to set up on Void Spirit



2. Viper

Viper knows no bounds and is hated by all the Void Spirit players. Most players can benefit largely from picking him against Void as he deals a ton of magical damage which can also be used to shove him out of the lane or nuke him down. Viper can also effectively counter push against the Void Spirit. A pure 1v1 lane matchup will never go in the favor of Void Spirit due to the melee and ranged disadvantage.

Why is Viper great against Void Spirit? 

  • Poison Attack makes it hard for Void Spirit to lane against him.
  • Corrosive Skin reduces the magical damage from Void Spirit's spells.

Items to Buy on Viper

  • Kaya and Sange - Increased stats and movement speed gain
  • Aghanim’s Scepter - Reduces ultimate’s cooldown, allowing him to be more offensive on Void Spirit, also pierces spell immunity.
  • Rod of Atos - Helpful to lock Void Spirit down, can also be upgraded into Glepnir later on.
  • Dragon Lance - Increased stats gain, Hurricane Pike can also be a viable upgrade
  • Blade Mail - Reflects back damage to Void Spirit if used on time


1. Templar Assassin

Templar Assasin, the guardian of the temple’s secrets is a lethal force to be reckoned with! She deals some heavy damage to Void Spirit while taking barely any in return if she has the Refraction shield on. A pure 1v1 matchup against Void could go either way but a skilled TA always manages to emerge on the top with her constant harassment from Psi Blades, making it easy to shove off Void Spirit and deny him any farm. Most experienced TA players occasionally disappear into the jungle to stack and farm as soon as they have the levels and farm, as they know Void relies more on kills and he is not good at ganking until he acquires his ultimate.

Why is Templar Assassin a great counter to Void Spirit? 

  • Refraction negates all of Void Spirit's burst damage.
  • Meld quickly burns through Resonant Pulse.

Items to Buy on TA

  • Black King Bar - Completely immune from Void Spirit’s spells
  • Aghanim’s Scepter - Can be used to teleport to anywhere on the map, essentially to split push, and pressure the enemy team
