Akali is an assassin type champion whose best role in a team is that of an anti-carry. While she has enough damage to kill a tank it takes her too much time and they may even escape. High damage champions that don’t build health and resistances are her best targets. Any carry or mage will find it very difficult to escape from her Shadow Dance and survive her burst. However, Akali only has Twilight Shroud as an escape mechanism so she has to be very careful when initiating or she can be caught behind enemy lines unable to run away.
