Master Yi-like Charecters

I really like Master Yi but I'm looking for some diversity. I don't like supports at all and I really don't know how to tank. Playing a DPS charecter isn't hard and you have the fun of ganking. I prefer melee dps charecters but my minds open. Btw, I'm not that skilled and probably what most people would call a "noob". Oh I lane mostly not jungle. Any help is good.
Thanks

Not many characters handle like Master Yi... Olaf is a strong choice and easy to learn (he's decent in lane to boot, though many jungle), but he's build a but sturdier then Yi...
Tryn is all about crit (IE is a must on him), and can do the same thing, but has a harder early game (though he can end up almost unstopable in the right hands).

Gangplank is a nono, he's a physical carry, but he's no Yi (Gang relies more on Parrrley for damage then auto attack, but he can clean up a team just as nice due to his high base MS). Gang also supports a bit more then Yi does via his ultimate, which takes much more practice then highlander to use effectively (very easy to #$%$ up a pirate ult). Don't get me wrong, Pirate is strong, but probably not what you're looking for.

Not many characters have the "OMG its YI" factor when he pops highlander, as I said the closest is Olaf, and he's built more tankier rather then a crit monster.

Olaf may be easy to learn but hard to master. Like Ashe pretty much. Gankplank is underrated, if you actually let him solo he will deny the enemies so much exp its ridiculous. While being the best farmer ever, mana regen runes + a simple chalice let him last hit with Parley forever, and he's gonna reach Infinity Edge + Phantom Dancer + CritCloak + BF Sword before other carries reached her 3x Dorans, Boots and Infinity/Last Whisper. His ult gives him assists everywhere without him leaving the lane, and he IS useful in teamfights since a good GP wont ever die, if you actually manage to get focused, enjoy your free cleanse + 400 Heal, then jump back in with epic movement speed, throw some auto attacks here and there, some parleys and your ult.

As I was saying, Hydro, Pirate isn't a bad hero, but he doesn't play like Yi in the sense that he gets into melee and wreaks face. He isn't meant to be in everyone's face, but instead pop em with Parrrley and crits (he's mostly hit and run, while Yi and Olaf are a straight fight to the finish).

As I said, Pirate is a strong hero, but he's probably not what the OP wants in terms of physical dps. I mean, I wouldn't be maining Pirate if I thought he wasn't a solid champ.

Akali. Massive assassin burst. Awesome chaser. She has very little escape opportunity, though.

This isn't a bad idea.

Akali is actually very much like Yi.
