Weaknesses: Has a limited supply of energy with which to cast spells, his spells have cooldown periods, during which time they cannot be cast (Both are highly exaggerated in-game for gameplay balance purposes; for instance, Ekko is shown to be able to use his ultimate ability in rapid succession in his cinematic)
- Basic Attack: Shen slashes the opponent with his sword. Augmented by Twilight Assault and Ki Strike.
- Ki Barrier: After using an ability, Shen shields himself from a small amount of damage for 2.5 seconds. Abilities that successfully affect champions reduce Ki Barrier's cooldown. Also, Shen's power manifests as a Spirit Blade that he can control with abilities.
- Twilight Assault: Shen recalls his Spirit Blade to his location. Enemies the blade collides with are slowed by 35% for the next 2 seconds when moving away from Shen. Once it arrives, Shen empowers his next 3 basic attacks within 8 seconds to gain bonus range and magic damage. If the Spirit Blade collides with an enemy champion, the empowerment is enhanced, dealing a percent of the target's maximum health bonus damage and gaining 50% bonus attack speed. Empowered attacks against non-champions deal additional damage, but their damage is capped.
- Spirit's Refuge: Shen primes his Spirit Blade for 2 seconds, causing it to project a protective zone around it for 1.75 seconds if he or an allied champion move nearby, granting allies in the zone 100% dodge chance.
- Shadow Dash: Shen dashes in the target direction, dealing physical damage to all enemy champions he hits and taunting them for 1.5 seconds. Shadow Dash's and Twilight Assault's damage recovers energy.
- Stand United: Shen channels for 3 seconds, granting the target allied champion an Stand United Minimap absorption shield that lasts up to 5 seconds. Upon completing the channel, Shen and his Spirit Blade blink to the ally's location.
- Ki Strike: Shen's basic attacks periodically deal bonus magic damage and restore energy. Every basic attack reduces Ki Strike's cooldown by 1 second, doubled to 2 seconds while Feint holds.
- Vorpal Blade: Shen throws a blade at the target enemy, dealing them magic damage and marking them for 5 seconds. Shen and allied champions heal over 3 seconds upon damaging a marked enemy, with the duration refreshing with subsequent damage. If Vorpal Blade kills its target, Shen instantly benefits from a second's worth of its healing.
- Feint: Shen shields himself for up to 3 seconds.
