Full Armor Malphite Top does great against Olaf. Granite Shield blocks axes + reckless swings while ground slam keeps his ridiculous auto-attack steroids at bay. Plus if you have regrowth pendant it'll be a challenge for him to throw you out of lane without wasting mana.

Shy and Irelia do work on him. But dont forget the king of the top solo yorick. Ghouls, Slows, Lifesteals. Get him a manamune and he is a horrible top solo to have to deal with

You have no clue what you're talking about, he crushes malphite. Malphite builds armor and you don't build armor against olaf, you build health. I don't know why the guy who suggested mundo got downvoted as mundo actually does really well against olaf. considering at worst you can farm with cleavers till ulti is up if he gets you low. Lee sin is actually really good (or was really good at least before W nerf) against olaf. As lee naturally builds health eventually he'll start winning against him. Rumble isn't bad if he shields the true damage properly. Olaf beats vlad out hard early game, vlad has no early damage, you abuse this as olaf and rush a hexdrinker and you win early, if you don't snowball vlad will eventually start to win though. I beat rivens most the time as olaf, as you're better than riven early game, there's a point where riven will beat you in trades, but once again a little later you'll start to pull ahead again in trades.

Olaf gets hard countered by Shen early game, the enormous damage is just too OP. Also, lee sin can beat him early as well. Just max W and sustain through his first burst of E. After that, his damage is all autos

I personally LOVE when people pick Fiora against my Olaf. Free lane for me
