There is of course the obvious ones such as Janna's Howling Gale or Malphite's Unstoppable Force. Are there anymore less obvious abilities that Yasuo can use to capitalize on?

  • What would be a less obvious ability? Anything that knocks up a champion counts for his ult. – Hackworth Dec 16 '13 at 10:12

    There are some edge cases, one I noticed while playing Draven is his Stand Aside counts for Yasuo – VanBuzzKill Dec 16 '13 at 18:05

Things that didn't work for me but still are knock-ups somehow:

  • Vilemaw(Big creepy spider in TT): Net attack
  • Baron: Knock-up

    dat effort :D +1 – Kevin Dec 23 '13 at 15:56
  • ok.. nice list. has anyone tried out if you can ulti jumping rengar, kazix or jax? – Pyjong Jan 7 '14 at 2:16

    Those abilities won't work since the Champions using them aren't considered airborne. As far as I know there are only a few slows (VI, Varus), roots (Xerath), and silences (Rumble) as self cc but no real knockup or knockback. – Jutschge Jan 7 '14 at 7:39
  • Regarding syndra's E, is it possible to use yasuo's ulti on an enemy hit only by a sphere, outside the cone range, or must he be hit by the actual spell? – user72840 Jul 4 '14 at 6:56
  • @Alessandro It's possible but it's a rather short amount of time the enemy is mid-air (about 0.1s or less) so you have to be pretty quick. – Jutschge Jul 4 '14 at 7:06

There are tons of abilities that actually work with Yasuo, despite the fact that they are not knock-ups. Draven's Stand Aside, Tristana's ultimate, Riven's third 'Q' strike, and the list goes on. Basically anyone with any ability that knocks someone back or moves the person will work with Yasuo's ultimate.

  • Yepp it seems to be any sort of displacement, not just knock-ups. – VanBuzzKill Dec 19 '13 at 18:24

It works on any unit that is in the air.

So if an ability say knocking target into the air it will work.

a few champs that come to mind:

  • Blitzcrank
  • Alistar
  • Malphite
  • Janna
  • Cho gath
  • Nautilus
  • Aatrox
  • Jarvan
  • Zyra
  • Wukong
  • Thresh Death Sentence and Flay

There are probably more, but it will work with these champs

  • Don't forget good old Xin :P – JimmyK Dec 16 '13 at 11:07
  • This should be a wiki question – Hackworth Dec 18 '13 at 14:25

Any skill that knocks up an enemy champ even for a millisecond such as the tip of a vi q or vayne e Most movement displacements are knock ups

It doent show it and you have to be really fast, but if you use the iceberg ability and the enemy is in the very centre, you can use his ult. Its hard to do, generally i just spam it because you have such a small time gap to cast it.

You forgot Anivia. A fast Yasuo can ult off the push that Anivia's wall does when cast underneath a target.
