I could go by what Riot has tagged as support, but we all know how warped what they list and don't list can misinform us. Like playing Teemo as support, or Nunu as a fighter or jungler, yeah..... didn't work out for me.....

So my question is what is the actual full list of supports in the game? I want to try the role, but I don't know who is really what. Anyone have time or the experience to give me a list to just how many there are, and what they are?

I don't think there's really anyone that can come up with a decisive list. Anyone that can disrupt could possibly be played as a support. People have talked about Ashe support, I played Orianna support (not really by choice) not too long ago.

Yes, I have heard of Ashe as a viable support, but I think I just want the core champs that are primarily made to go the route of a support with auras and CC and heals, etc..... Even Master Yi can make primarily aura items, but that doesn't mean its optimal as a support role. I just want the basics to what the community has learned for champs that can be great at what they do as supports.

18 Champions at MLG have been played in a "Support" role according to ELOBUFF. This is based off of items bought and many factors. Look at the pros and see what they are doing!

Teemo has that support tag presumably because his ult gives him map control.
