Kennen, Renekton, Jayce, Garen, Olaf. Seem like they should work decently against her.

Maybe not Kennen any more after series of nerfs.

STD's. She might carry over 54 after ****ing every single champion, item, rune, building and tree in Runeterra.

riven might not lose lane to most of those up there but they actually give her a hard time to the point where she wont snowball as hard

Renekton is probably her hardest counter. Garen used to be but eeh not so much anymore.

no one "counters" riven. Kennen and Garen are good checks though, but they can still have a hard time.

Renekton does well against her. But Olaf is too suicidal to deal with Riven's counter-burst and Kennen and Jayce have been nerfed too much. Garen does decently but there's a lot more room to be outplayed in that lane.

Ryze has some pretty good success too. His W can temporarily stop the gap closers and his tanky-bruiser build means he gets HP and armor without trading any damage for it. Follow that up with his awesome sustained-damage and his ultimate's sustain, and Riven can be dealt with.


Bruiser Quinn's also pretty good. She's tanky enough to deal with 1 round of Riven's insanity and her range and kiting ability can keep Riven in check. Just E away after her first set of gap closers (QQQ or EQQ) and when she moves in again, blind her so she can't use her passive. Follow up with some damage and Riven will lose the trade.

I find Trundle to be very effective against her.

-He steals AD from her (which hurts everything she does)
-He can keep her contained with his pillar
-His ulti steals health and defenses from her
-She usually fights on top of people, which is in Trundle's favor with his w
-Trundle is very durable and highly mobile

Also would Darius by chance counter Riven?

Teamwork / Silance and CC counter Riven. She is still glass if her sheild isn't up.

In lane, unless your tanky lube up.
