Why even bother differentiating between the two, again?

tanky DPS = tanky, and deals high sustained dmg over time (can be AP or AD spells or AAs; as opposed to burst dmg; i.e. the longer this guy stays alive, the more likely he will kill the whole team)
-> very very broad category.

can be split into 2 subcategories:
-> tanky AP DPS (morde/vlad/rumble/poppy/gragas), and
-> tanky AD DPS (aka Bruisers).

tanky AD DPS can be further split into 2 subcats:
-> tanky AD Casters (renek/nasus/blitz/irelia/udyr), and
-> tanky AA DPS (olaf/xin/jax/trundle/tryn/ww/jarv).

there are also non-tanky AD Casters (pant/gp) and non-tanky AA DPS (yi/noct/shaco)

imo, garen doesn't do very much sustained DPS other than early game (and mid-game if a lil fed), so i won't really call him a tanky DPS. AD casters are generally thot of as guys who deal big damage too, but if you are talking about just having abilities which do AD dmg then yes, garen has 2 AD dmg abilities.

p.s.: AA = auto attk.
