Anyone with range harrass works well and myself I have gone Udyr top vs olaf many times and Udyr tends to hold fairly well and with ganks you can win the lane pretty easily

top solo is all about early game. if you are laned against an olaf, don't expect any of these ideal situations where you will be able to ult him. Also don't expect to know you are laning against olaf. Every champ has a play style that can counter a play style on another champion. Olaf's counter play style is easy. Last hit, avoid him, and poke him when you can. If you are a melee champ, stand close so he feels the want to assault you but leave yourself room to avoid his undertow. As ranged just last hit and assault him when you can. If you are a champion with lane positioning abilities (Vayne, Ali, Blitz, Nautilus, Tristana) let him push hard, and just knock him into the turret over and over again. Olaf is subjugated to grabs and knock backs easily as he is such a close range champion.

Vlad is the best the trading of blows is to great for olaf to handle

If he has Brolaf skin, you might as well AFK or leave game, you won't win.

fiora crushes him top, can poke hard and hit back if he tries to do anythign about it, and olaf gets strong in that last 20% HP battle, but with fioras ult u just LOL


lol no

Fiora can't do anything about E in trades and W + Passive allows Olaf to autoattack duel.

I would think that on paper Pantheon ought to do well if he can dodge the axe- good harrass with his q, and Olaf can't take advantage of his low hp strength as Panth will autocrit.
Not sure how it would go in practice


Olaf's E goes through Pantheon's passive.

It's not his axe you need to worry about, is his Reckless Swings..

I mostly use Rumble and Riven, both can counter olaf quite nicely, rumble is very bulky and can hold top very long and Riven very versatile with her moves and with the aoe stun plus dash can escape olaf axe.
