if your not gonna read this, hit the downvote now, and move on.

That being said, teemo is widely considered to be the best top lane against darius at the moment.

teemos kit. = a blind/damage dealer, a movement speed increase, a passive damage increase, a slowing ward-style ult. passive of turning invisible and increasing attack speed coming out.

ziggs kit = a q that lets you farm easily from your own tower almost to middle of the lane. with the option to bounce it in, or just go for direct damage with a no-bounce strike.
a damage dealing slow, and a damage dealing free flash. as played right it sends you one way, and the other team's 1 ( or 2 ) people a different way. and a damage dealing ( delayed ), ult.

Why ziggs is better: better distance, more escability, stronger poke, safer against any strong ad melee top bruiser.

Why teemo is better: Less skillshots. more then one slow potential.

The kicker: zigg's passive makes zigg a viable top laner, as he gets that extra bit of damage that just helps against a ad lane.

And ziggs doesnt get ganked.

Kayle...

EDIT: If you're wondering why you got downvoted so much OP, you phrased your title awkwardly as if Ziggs is the best counter to Darius, you think Teemo is the best Darius counter by popular opinion, you only analyze two characters by skillset without accounting for other factors or even mentioning other champions, you're a junior member, and your name sounds stupid when pronounced aloud.

Kayle or Kennen do a much better job of beating up Darius.

Ranged in general beats Darius. Darius wins by getting in your face and preventing you from escaping, Ranged champs are less likely to get caught

Ziggs top will have Mana issues as you won't be recieving the blue buff from your jungler, unless your team's middle laner doesn't need/want it.

Try Vayne. I feel sorry for every Darius I see go against a Vayne, honestly. They're never able to do anything at all to her.
