Nasus isn't a tank. No initiator, no gap closer, easily kited, gg.

singed isn't a tank either under those conditions. What makes someone a tank other than items? I know what LOL says are the tanks. I know what the general consensus says are the tanks but there are a lot of characters that are very grey in this regard. Plus if I'm not incorrect a tank with trinity is not a tank but an off-tank and any dps items make them tanky DPS. So a tank is generally defined by what items he has taken.

Amumu is a tank but he doesn't have taunt, Shen is a tank but he doesn't have stun, slow or any cc other than a skill shot taunt. Nasus has a slow, Irelia has a stun if her health is lower than the person she's fighting.... What makes a tank a tank other than items? Anyone who has a CC COULD be considered a tank. Tank Sion?

A tank needs to be able to protect the carries. Generally this means some form of damage, debuff, or (the standard) hard CC (not slows, but stuns, taunts, throws, etc)

Other than that, it's mostly gear.
