Rumble counters her good especially if built early magic pen. (Guise, sorc boots) . His e does good dmg to slow her and stop her gap closer and his w plus q overheat out dmgs her auto attacks. W before her stun and if she gets agro ultimate and she is done.

I play Riven quite a bit, if you want to counter her you need to know what skills she has and how she plays.

Her e gives her a shield, generally this is when she will go in for a creep. Don't hit her while she's got this up, wait for it to go down then harras. She also has 2 stuns, her q is an aoe knock up and w is an aoe stun. Both are .75s. Be careful.

As far as champions, you want someone with range and good sustain. Any good Riven will eat a half life opponent. Also, if you're going solo top I advise getting yellow armor rune page. Its invaluable against tops. I suggest Nidalee/Ahri/Vladamir.

If you simply must use a melee character top, I'd go with Shen/Lanewick/Tryndamere.

i would have to say i destroy riven with xin mainly cuz his three talon strike kind of distruptes her jumping attack especially if u can knock her into the air on her second to last strike

Renekton crushes Riven. I haven't had problems as Riven against Garen, but that might be the Elo I'm playing at (1450ish).

Renekton is the only known counter to Riven because he stops her mobillity with a huge burst, aswell as having better sustain than Riven. A Brutalizer and an early chain vest (that goes into Atmas later) = Dead Riven.

Yorick also mops the floor with her
