Threats & Synergies
Although many will say that Riven counters you, dont worry. you can easily proc your W passive and dodge her stun+3rd Q with your E. If you main Gnar and are good with him you will win lane easily. If you dont know how to play Gnar then stay back a little farm with your Q or Auto-Attacks whenever you can and wait for your jungler to gank you.
Pantheon is one of your greatest counters, since he can block your Auto-Attacks with his Passive and can easily stun you with his W whenever you get close to farm. Just wait for ganks so he can fall back in lane.
If you are laning against a Nidalee you wont have many problems winning the lane. Try dodging her spears and Auto-Attacking+Qing her whenever you can.
Gnar can heavily counter Nasus, since you can poke him whenever he comes up to farm with his Q. If he puts his slow on you, you can easily E away. Remember, if you go on Mega Gnar and try to combo him, he might still has his ultimate so continue chasing him until you are sure that he is gonna die.
Aatrox counters Gnar since his Q has a big range and you cant easily dodge it. If you try to E out he can slow you with his E or Q onto you. If you try to combo him he will probably have his Passive and then you will be on Cooldowns.
Darius can easily counter gnar because of his E and his slows. But if you are a smart Gnar you can outrange his E and then combo him to Death since he wont have his E which is an important ability when it comes to fighting..
