Lee Sin

This champion is the most recommended jungle, so he can face Swain without any problems. Lee has no excellent skills to face Swain, such as W and R. Lee Sin’s W skill can help him to avoid Swain’s Q or W skills. Lee’s ultimate can’t take Swain away, so he can’t keep regenerating his life.

Olaf’s passive increases his attack speed with every % of his life that he lacks. Olaf’s W ability also helps to regenerate his life, being a good point to destroy Swain.


Swain against Anivia’s abilities will never be able to get close, since if he tries it is either the catch with his Q or he stops with his W. Also Anivia’s ultimate help Swain loses life and is slower than before, since if he is arrested, he cannot heal himself with his ultimate.
