It's easier to note what you should avoid with this character, as he can easily take down most other characters.

Hard counters: Reaper, Widow, Ana and Pharah.

Easy targets: Junkrat, Mercy, Soldier, Torbjorn

Roadhog is a super-high damage tank that shuts down a ton of threats and can be very fearsome if not corralled.

Roadhog lives to skirmish. With an on-demand heal on a relatively low cooldown and a two-hit kill on the majority of the cast, he's happy to duel most every character, preferably in tight quarters. Standing on the point is a secondary option, and Roadhog will often pop out of line of sight to heal if taking too much damage securing the objective.

His hook is as punishing as Pudge's, and completely shuts down Pharah and Mercy by interrupting their ults and utterly melts Tracer, Soldier 76, Reaper and/or most any other character he manages to catch with it. It cannot penetrate shields, however.

Though he may seem it, Roadhog is not immortal. A stun grenade and headshots from a McCree will usually do the job, as will having a Reinheart shielding hooks and swinging his hammer. He also relies on team support to clear out Widowmaker, Bastion and Hanzo if he ever hopes to push a payload or take a point.
