Problem is he scales fast to hyper carry mode.

I agree. Might I also add that Darius himself makes it not viable to ever pick a melee carry in blind pick. If you're going top, you're forced to play someone who can poke JUST to counter ONE guy. And the thing is, there isn't really a situational counter to Darius unless you get fed and deal way more damage than him. Yeah, you could build health and armor, but what's the point of a 0 damage tryndamere or Fiora?

Fiora still deal 0 dmg even you build as glasscannon , you die before hit someone

I disagree with your short list of viable LoL melee carries. I would also say that assassins are just as capable of carrying a game.
