Top and bottom are different lanes. Melees who are generally considered viable bottom lane are supports, such as Taric and Leona. Melees who are generally considered viable top lane are bruisers and offtanks, such as Lee Sin, Darius, Jarvan IV, or Shyvana, although some of these champions are currently considered better in the jungle. These lists are not comprehensive.

I'd skip Olaf. He's been weak since his nerfs and the end of the HP building craze. Pantheon is generally better mid lane, against mages who don't build as much armor and where he can use his ultimate better. Tryndamere and Master Yi are both fine.

Aatrox is super strong too, can be built full damage/tank/anything in between.

Aatrox also has a huge learning curve, check out Dufftime's video guide on him if you want to learn more, Here or this guide, right Here written by astrolia which is a very good guide to Aatrox

but if you are new to solo top with melees try using Garen as he is really good to learn with, also Darius is good top to atm, unless he is going against Teemo but then again every melee is screwed against Teemo

This is so ******** its not even funny...
You buy some Mr on Darius then grab him (teemo cant AA you w/o being in grab range) then you 1 shot teemo.......
Just rush spectre's cowl.

Darius is NOT good in toplane tbh, hes so useless lategame against pretty much everybody, he will get kited by almost any champion.

Kennen and Renekton are probably some of the strongest toplaners atm.
Check out my singed guide :)

if you play a good teemo, you can kite darius quite easily. The only way darius can really get to you is through his flash but, at the same time, you have flash as well.
Darius is useless lategame because he is an early game champ. Just like every other early game top, you want to dominate to begin with and snowball the game.
And fyi, renekton is in the same boat as darius.
thanks Hogopogo for the banner :D

A good Teemo counters a lot of toplane melees, that's why I said that, but if your saying BS to Darius top lane being strong, I will agree that he does fall off late game, but so do most melee top lanes :P playing top lane is all about the early game yo
