Darius can be beaten on TT, you just have to kite and bait his pulls and spins.

Kayle can just apply invincibility on anyone who is about to get dunked and can constantly throw ranged auto attacks and Q's on his face if hes solo top against you.

Kennen can dance all over the place and confuse darius while constantly using Q+W to harass him with a never ending energy bar.

Tryndamere at level 6 can laugh and go into his tie fighter-sound-like rage where the ultimate dunk will no longer be a problem to Tryn.

Don't forget to ask for ganks from time to time to stop him from getting too much farm and make him fall behind in levels.

He's just really strong if not focused properly and annoying to deal with

He can be countered by range, but that requires taking ranged champs which are less viable than bruisers. IE you can counterpick him in ranked, but it's risky in normals. And he does have a decent gapcloser/grab, so sending a squishy against him is definitely a skill matchup.

He can be countered by spellshields/kayle/trynd. Timing's not easy, for sure.

Saying he can be countered by focus is dumb. He builds full tank, 99% of the time. Of course 3 of you can focus and kill him. But if you do, you just used all your time, and all your skills, killing the tank (and took some damage doing so, due to his AoE). His team then wipes you for an easy 1v3.

That's the problem with Darius. Too much damage when built tanky (or even fulltank)

10 squishies that will counter him with minor intelligence and proper play applied, at almost no risk and offer good late game viability:

Malzahar
Viktor
Caitlyn
Teemo
Ahri
Zyra
Nidalee
Twitch
Kennen
Kayle

There are quite a few others that offer soft-counters to Darius but the ten listed above should be able to bully him out of lane in 9 out of 10 scenarios.

AD Darius seems to be pretty fotm right now so theyve been laughably easy to shut down.

But no matter how he builds, hes not very hard to shut down with almost any champ. Hes a one trick pony. Barrier is also a nice way to shut down his ult if you have problems with it.

I can fight him with pretty much anyone on my roster but I find Ezreal the most hilariously easy to do it with. Farm and harass til you can build phage and brut. Boom. That lane is now officially yours.
