I've pretty much only played laner characters that kinda stay in their lane and just try to farm, and need to play defensively at first. I want to switch things up, looking for a champion who is really strong early game and who can typically get some kills early. I'm sick of having to wait and just run around scared early on ;) Any strong early game champs with ganking ability are awesome!

Shaco is the king at doing this.

Watch out for nocturne as well...

If you're fine with playing a jungler, Shaco is the KING of early ganks.

You can also play a roamer. Evelynn is a strong roamer, as is Alistar. However, they rely more on their teammates to get kills, while Shaco is perfectly capable of picking off enemies by himself (although he shouldn't be).

Shaco should be sharing kills with his teammate. The strength of jungle ganks is that it turns a 1v1 into a 2v1 or a 2v2 into a 3v2. Trying to solo champions CAN sometimes be risky.

Ah, one problem I guess is that I'm very low level, so do you think that means Shaco is out for me since I can't jungle really? (according to another thread i just read here)

If you're low level, I do NOT recommend jungle Shaco. I wouldn't try roaming either, tbh, although at low levels, you can probably land a lot of easy kills with eve. Try stuff around, see what you like.

Basically anything with a stun, in accordance with allies' CC, can successfully gank.

TBH any assasin that can jungle will do the work.

Shaco, Eve, Warwick, Nocturne, Nunu, Olaf, Udyr would be my choices.
Twitch is also viable. And so-so Fiddle (but from lvl 6)

Also i find Karthus very viable ganker from mid in 2 ways, He is a dps, has huge slow, good AoE damage, and also you can help ganks not even moving from mid.

Jungle Amumu or Malphite are good gankers from jungle from the criteria of tanks.
