Want to know how to counter Onryo in Dead by Daylight? This sneaky Killer can approach you when you least expect it, take you down without mercy. Even if she looks very creepy, countering Onryo is easier than you think. If it’s your first time playing against her, you might be overwhelmed. However, if you figure out what to do while Onryo is the Killer, she won’t stand a chance. Like most Killers in the Dead by Daylight roster, Onryo can be countered with certain playstyles.
We’ll tell you how to counter Onryo in this guide if this Killer sounds too complicated and unbeatable to you.
Keep an Eye and Ear on Onryo
Onryo uses her Killer stealth abilities to ambush or chase Survivors in Dead by Daylight. She can teleport out of a TV in a second or manifest next to you to grab you off a generator. If Onryo is in stealth mode, it will be very difficult for you to hear or look out for her. She also doesn’t have a terror radius while Demanifested, so she’ll sneak up on you when you least expect it.
However, she can still be seen nearby unless she is out of your sight. Besides, you’ll hear a static noise when Onryo is within 18 meters. Therefore, Onryo is not completely inevitable and can be noticed when paid attention to. Onryo also can’t hit you while Demanifested, and she needs to wait a second to come out of it. If you’re having trouble understanding where Killers come from, the Spine Chill perk will help you find the Killer.
Also, we can’t help but say that Onryo is the shortest Killer in DbD. She is even the only Killer that is specifically mentioned as “short”. This won’t affect countering Onryo much, but maybe it will motivate you.

Turn Off TVs When Repairing
If you don’t turn off the TV while working on a generator that has a TV nearby, Onryo can easily teleport there and surprise you. If you don’t have a situation that requires you to stay near the TV for a long time, don’t bother turning it off. Because when you turn a TV off to counter, you get a videotape from it and you prevent Onryo from teleporting to that TV in Dbd.
However, you must return the videotape to that TV in time or you will be Condemned and Onryo can Mori you immediately. So don’t try to randomly turn off the TVs and know when to do it. Because the Dead By Daylight Killer Onryo doesn’t use TVs anyway unless it’s necessary. The DbD kit of Onryo is very easy to counter, making her one of the most useless Killers. So once you know how to deal with this Killer, the rest is child’s play. If you do everything we say in this guide completely, that will be enough to counter Onryo.
