Bounty Hunter is PERFECT for hunting Riki
Bounty Hunter. You track Riki or any other hero and it gives the team true sight of him.

Slardar, Bounty Hunter, Bristleboar.

After Riki gets his Diffusal he'll just purge away track / silence / dust / amplify damage. Yeah, diffusal is a god tier for Riki for a reason.

So, get sentries, gem or MKB and face him like a man.

ok bounty hunter seems like a good choice.

thanks everyone
The smartest option IMO really is to get sentries or dust. Any Riki with half a brain will just focus BH or Sladar first if that's the main threat to him. Sentries and dust mean that there is more team support and backup against Riki.
some people like pudge(invis kills:)) and wisp (spirits can find him-needs others help, but makes it easier for others too do so) can kill him while hes invis if played well
bountey has invis seeing, doesnt nessicarily win a duel though
anyone who can kill him easily 1v1(bane potentially), good teamfighters becuse riki is bad at teamfighting, good teamwork and not splitting up.

riki is not bad at team fights not bad at all, especialy when there is no true sight

he is easily killed by aoe is the point

Wards, gem of true sight and the dust that makes people visible. All of these will make Riki very weak because he no longer has the element of surprise. Also his damage output isn't high normally so you're only really in danger if you run or play as a low HP character.

that applies to almost every low hp hero not specifically to riki

yes, but he has trouble avoiding it in a teamfight
