Tryndamere has many MANY counters in top lane. He can be a solid pick, but it really just depends on enemy composition.

Xin Zhao!

His ganks are deadly. As he's scaled so badly into late game, I like him to be jungling and ganking all the lane phase. The key to xin zhao success is dominate the early-mid game. He's really bad late game. ( Coming from Tanky DPS Xin Zhao player, he's just so bad late game with no escape mechanism)

I am trying to use a solo fiddle, obviously not againt stunners, but still, againts Olaf, or Nasus, Singed, Gangplank, or even Rumble, i beat them with cs and kills. I also won against a riven lately, but she was kinda meh.

never i repeat NEVER jungle a nasus its just no viable in any situation q gets no farm meaning u have to build for more dam to counter which lowers ur tankyness and u become near useless in teamfights

I wasn't saying it's the best choice, but it is viable and he has pretty decent ganks.
I would personally always put him top lane myself, but I've seen him successfully jungle.

Ones that also excel:
Akali


If you disagree with any of these, please post who and why.


Akali is great solo top.. that is, if you are going against people who freak out at the sight of her. She is EASILY countered by an array of things (AoE, Silence, Stun, True sight etc..).

I do not believe she is viable in the jungle either, sustain isn't great and isn't able to clear out camps fast enough to keep up with the game. Ganks pre-6 and without Rylai's are very difficult to pull off effectively..

That being said, she is my favorite champion, and if you can figure out how to play very dominantly with her you will win solo top and destroy in teamfights.

I would suggest sustainable bruisers. My favorite in that category would be Irelia.

I love olaf solo top personally, I just build a ton of ad and lifesteal. Xin Zhao has the best synergy with his abilities, thats why he's my main jungler. Pantheon's got a good burst too, but hes kinda weak. just pick whichever you like best and keep with him.
