Anything that moves an enemy. (That's just about 5)

So, "just" is a full set of items? Caitlyn can do 1500 damage in one hit with full items too, from range.

I think it depends on what you mean by "best". If you mean a collection of skills that would offer the best possible outcome, I'd just go for 5 CC heavy skills that would allow you to stun-lock an opponent (Gold Card, Dazzle, Cryptic Gaze, Counter-Strike, and Fear would be a pretty solid line-up there). If you go by categories of what the skills accomplish things get funner though.

Best offensive skills:
1 - Minion Farming: Karthus's Lay Waste (solid range with minimal cost)
2 - Skillshot Harass: Nidalee's Javelin Toss (#1 Aram terror because of this)
3 - Single-Target Nuke: LeBlanc's Sigil of Silence (lots of assassins have a solid burst skill, this one just seems slightly better than the rest)
4 - Multi-Target Burst: Fiddlestick's Dark Wind (team-wide silence, bounces can hit the same unit multiple times)
5 - Auto-Attack Steroid: Vayne's Silver Bolts (can't go wrong with % true damage)

Best Defensive Skills:
1 - Anti-Magic: Morganna's Black Shield (CC immunity helps. A lot. Nocturns and Sivirs are K, but not team-freindly. Sivir's also has a retarded 0.5 second delay)
2 - Anti-Physical: Jax's Counter-Strike (Pretty much defines him as the champion that will win against anyone even remotely reliant on auto-attacks).
3 - Sustain: Soraka's Astral Blessing (outclasses all other non-ult heals in the game)
4 - Escape: Shaco's Deceive (Flash with stealth, can't go wrong there)
5 - Troll: Fizz's Playful/Trickster (Like Vlads, this moves you places and slows enemies. Unlike Vlads, this one is easier to juke with and doesn't cost health).

Best Utility Skills:
1 - Gap Closer: Kha'Zix Leap (Not sure how you feel about usaing an ultimate to upgrade a regular ability - but upgraded this is almost better than Kassadin's ultimate with comparable range - beyond that it's a skillshot leap rather than targeted, so good for escaping and initiating. Re-set on kill or assist to).
2 - Team Buff: Jayce's Acceleration Gate (free Shyrelia's with a lower cooldown)
3 - Single-Target Crowd Control: Fiddlestick's Fear (what it lacks in damage it makes up for in never missing, and having a short cooldown)
4 - Multi-Target Crowd Control: Alistar's Pulverize (what it lacks in reliability it makes up for in being un-mitigatable by tenacity and capable of striking in an AoE).
5 - Displacement: Blitzcrank's Grap (Probably the best non-ultimate in the game. No gap-closer necessary to jump in the middle of 5 enemies, you bring the enemy to your 5 man team).

Arguably, if you don't consider the kit around it, Zileans rewind. Give it to just about anyone that isn't zilean, and it's ridiculously overpowered.

Also top contenders imo are Hecarims spirit of dread (full heal in 4 seconds in teamfights whilst getting beat on ftw) and TF pick a card stun.

Lee Sin- Sonic Wave/Resonating Strike
Twisted Fate- Pick a Card
Olaf- Undertow
Riven- Broken Wings
Cassiopeia- Twin Fang
In terms of not power but of design strength, all of which cause you to make very real choices.
