As a good garen there is not much people who really counter you hard but people with a lot of armor or imba range could beat you like Lee sin, Warwick or Shen, range like nidalee or Kennen are pain in the ass too, but even vlad cant really beat if you if you play aggressive enough : he will miss cs if he want to survive.

so long as Teemo does not chase the Garen into the brushes.

Because Teemo will die if Garen can catch him.

There isn't a hard counter to Garen late game. You just have to realize that Garen makes for a terrible tank/initiator. If you play him as a tank or an initiator, he falls flat, at most stages of the game. For him to be a threat, he has to be built almost pure ad, with a few hybrid pieces (frozen mallet and atmas).

Once the initiator goes, you are free to wreak havoc on the team, with a silence that prevents a flash, or a snare that prevents escapes.

Don't underestimate garen.


Nah you can build him IE Fratmog's and two BTs and his Q/E still does 0 damage to anyone late game.

Honestly, the real question is, who doesn't counter Garen? Except Nasus, but really everyone counters Nasus.

You must be crazy, Garen is very good if any fed until about 45 minutes and when you completed you're item builds... But even vs 1800 elo players you can get fed as garen because it's that much easy. And because Garen got natural tankiness and his w he doesnt need much defense... so with only a warmorg or frozen mallet with atmas you are really hard to kill and if you are fighting for dragon*baron around those bush, Garen make a really great initiator.
