If you’re looking to tryhard in these daily tournaments and want to take home the prizes and glory for yourself, then look no further than our list of the best 1v1 champions in League of Legends!

Here are five champions that will give you the highest chance of winning your 1v1 matchups and progressing through the Red Bull Power Spike tournaments straight through to the final:


Whether it’s in solo queue or a tournament, Yasuo is the perfect champion to flex on your opponents with in League of Legends. Statistics show that 95% of salty, post-match 1v1s are played with Yasuo.

The wind warrior has an unmatched ability to close gaps within a minion wave with E – Sweeping Blade and can deal incredible amounts of damage with swift auto attacks and Q – Steel Tempest.

However, you may be better equipped by waiting until Level 6 to engage on your opponent with R – Last Breath for a huge burst of damage and, most importantly, style points.


With a real weapon, Jax would not only blitz the Red Bull Power Spike tournament, but he would also blitz any tournament in League of Legends. Without a real weapon though, he’s still one of the best 1v1 champions in the game.

The versatility of the Grandmaster’s kit is key to his 1v1 strength. Q – Leap Strike can be used both as an escape tool and engage tool, W – Empower is the best auto-attack reset in the game, and E – Counter Strike has unbelievable outplay potential.

In terms of winning 1v1 fights, no champion is better suited than Jax.

Lee Sin

Skill expression is the most important aspect of League of Legends for many players and Lee Sin completely encompasses that art.

The Blind Monk is by far the hardest champion to execute on this list, but if you can utilize his mobility to its potential then you should have no problem breezing through the Red Bull Power Spike 1v1 tournament.


While she may not seem like a champion molded for the 1v1 duel, Tristana is a beast when it comes to all-in engages at Levels 2 and 3.

Lead with W – Rocket Jump for a gap closer and 60% slow on your opponent, then cast E – Explosive Charge in mid-air to set up your burst and get off one quick stack before you land.

If you’re Level 3 at this point, cast Q – Rapid Fire to detonate Explosive Charge instantly and possibly grab a W reset for the simplest 1v1 kill of your life.


Reaching Level 6 with Mordekaiser is the equivalent of a death sentence for your opponent. R – Realm of Death prevents all escape attempts and steals 10% of his target’s stats making for a pretty uneven fight and easy 1v1 win for Morde.
