I've heard Riven has a certain niche in the midlane against squishy melee mids, and I'm curious about that. What characters does she tend to do well against in the midlane?

Riven mid would be good against other all in champions. IE Fizz, Zed, Talon, ETC. Riven would be bad, obviously, against champions who can just deny her. IE Lux, Ahri, Zyra, Annie.

Basically, anytime you have a mid who only has one or less long range harras, Riven mid would work wonders. Her shield can block that one or dodge the shot entirely, and she's mobile enough to close the gap as well as having hard CC to make them not be so slippery.

Pretty good all around as long as you're good on her. Painful versus mages with long-ranged harass and strong self-peel, though.

you have a lot of tools for dodging long range poke with your E and Q so it's not the worst thing in the world especially if you can all in a squishy mage. I like riven mid i think its a lot of fun

She's good against other melee champions. And seeing as it's mid lane, most if not all would be squishy so Riven can easily make great use of her early game strengths.
