Top Ten League of Legends Tank Champions

The Top Ten
1 Rammus

Great at soaking up damage while returning it with W. Not to mention his ultimate does huge aoe damage and his a can disrupt team fights perfectly or be used to chase down and kill single targets that have tried to escape. No one escapes the rammus.

Best tanker that I've ever used in League of Legends. All of his skill is very powerful and useful in clash. Rammus can ambush one or two enemy and can easily escape using his first skill.

Rammus is just amazing. His taunt keeps people from getting away, his powerball is a great getaway and ganking skill, and his w is great against the camps. Also, his ult is amazing when facing off towers while fighting enemies.

My very 1st champion! He is so OP can carry if played correctly! Played him in every lane mid (ap), bot (support tank), top (bruiser), jungle (tank) he rules everything!

2 Shen

Pure tank, hands down. Only Shen and Rammus have taunts and that ability makes a pure tank!

I've been playing shen toplane for the past 100 games and the only champion that could win againts me on lane was Darius. Shen is very stong in 1v1, after lvl3 you can beat almost anyone expect Nautilius. Using your passives well and its gg.

Everything in his kit is what one expects from the best tabk in laugh out loud

The most tanky champions used by the real players in championship

3 Amumu

Great for harassing enemy champs, especially if you know how to gank as him. Boost his speed, jack up his health, armor, and mana, and give him sunfire cape, and they won't survive. Pump levels into Bandage Toss and Tantrum to get the most use out of him.

Just an awesome tank with great abilities so overpowered in teamfights!

Amumu is the best, once you get tear if goddess

He is best tank ever1!

4 Volibear

This guy's passive is the best. With his passive up, you will be literally OP in the early game.

His passive and his W can let him build full tank and make a hard damage.

Passive rules! With heal he is the strongest!

Awesome champion you only need health so OP

5 Nautilus

Tons of mass and CC. Literally a brick wall that the enemy has to go through if they want to reach your team in a fight.

Don't spam shield early. Needs few items to become just a waste of time to focus. Can put out tons of
damage as well.

Nautilus has the most CC of any character in the game, and is an all around great tank. You can play him support, jungle, top, and even mid as seen in the LPL and LCK.

Most underrated tank need more love

6 Cho Gath

Yes, with his skills dealing magic damage, and he's feast is a one hitting beast, this makes him a extremly hard to kill champion. He can have 10k health if fed and late game, and have 300 defense too. And since he deals so much damage too, when you see him, no matter what you use, you're dead. AP or AD.

Cho'Gath is a low risk, high reward champion that can deal tons of damage as a tank, or take a lot of hits building full AP. Start with a rod of ages, use the spikes to farm like no tomorrow, and get your stacks. Beyond that, do whatever you want.

Just stack up feasts, get armor items, stoneplate, locket, maybe fit voidstaff in somewhere and you'll never lose a teamfight. Over 10k meat shield, knockup that's actually easy to land in the confusion, and a silence that will hit whole enemy team. Actually underrated.

You're practically invincible with the right items and 6 feast stacks.

7 Singed

His ult is very powerful all around. Who doesn't like a steroid that gives you massive definitely stats and health and mana regen? His w and e are excellent for defending your carries and he can kill people by running away, combine that with his kit and you have the ultimate tank!

His kit is beautifully designed and completely unique. Great at causing madness.

Can tank five enemies at once with an hitter by his side to kill them all.

Just walk around the enemy team, do the most damage and walk out healthy

8 Galio

his final rules and dominates. instant support and possibly a getaway. he takes reduced damage and has a ton of health. who could ask for more?

Tips say not to even try to double him! Enough said!

Aguanta bastante si lo sabes usar

9 Malphite

The slow on shard with his ult that when used right can knock up an entire enemy team (great to be used in a wombo combo team with yasuo) and his e and w put out all kinds of damage early and late game+ his w can be used on towers+ his abilites scaling with armour and some really sick skins make this a hell of a champ not even mentioning the free shield on his passive.

Best tank out there. Once leveled up, seismic shard does incredible amounts on champions such as Ashe, Miss Fortune, and any other attack based champion.

A real tank with some killer AP dmg. Might be the best team fight champ, and definitely has one of the best engages in the game.

Unstoppable Force is perfect for team fights, and spamming seismic shard is great for chases. All round tank.

10 Alistar

He can tank for days with no problem, has a sustain and built in sunfire, lets not forget the dmg reduction on his ult.

Best tank for me

He is built to tank, just look at his ULT!

Ult gives him like 70% damage reduction

The Contenders
11 Zac

Zac is looked down a bit too much. First off, yes, he isn't the easiest of champions to use. His armor isn't too bad either. His E best move a jungler could have since it is an awesome gank tool from the fog of war. His W deal percentage of max health which is also pretty sweet. I build my Zac with Rylai's to gain a bit of AP so his W does 10% of their health. His Q I max last since it is his weakest move, still has great AoE. I love using his ultimate when enemy is attacking ally turret they just bounce in. He is good because all of his attacks are AoE. I build to about 5.06k health and with Lulu's ultimate I got a shock seeing his size. (ChoGath is still larger though)

Incredible ganking potential, plus a large health pool. Deals lots of damage especially with w's % health damage. His team fight and disrupt are crazy powerful. Breaks up an enemy team with ult. Requirements for a good tank: Sustain (zacs passive), CC, ( zac has slow, knock up and his e actually stuns for a bit, And add rylies to that! ) and off course tankiness. Lets not forget zacs second life. now that's the perfect tank!

No champion compares to the initiation and disruption Zac has. He's an all-around tanky dude with an awesome kit.

He's crazy strong with his ability to knock up and slow enemies. Late game he can change teamfights as much as reworked Taric's ult. Plus he gets huge late game

12 Renekton

He is the best tank ever with his heatlh regen and no mana.
He can easily harass with his E. Buy his for instant win!

Renekton has the most spam able abilities ever.

He is great early game and does tons of damage.

Good Top Lane Tank Destroyer :P

13 Shyvana

Awesome tank my first tank and loved her

Very good tank yet so under rated

Shyvanna is easily a good tank.

Combines up to 7% max health damage per hit + tankiness.
Also is a dragon. Which is cool.

14 Maokai

So tanky atm at full build and his ult he can easily dive not 1, 2 but 3 turrets deep and survive and he can also stay on top of the enemy carry with his twisted advance which is also a good way to initiate a fight. His ult is also just amazing in teamfights and he is one of the best tanks not only in the competitive scene but also in the game. Late game he is almost unkillable.

This is the competitive pick, he can tank a lot and help his team with his ult during team fights.
At the right hands, he is the most devastating tank

Super tanky, amazing at crowd control and can easily take anyone 1v1. Also, he can be a great support since his abilities can stun and slow enemies.

I can use treeman to kill Ashe, Sona, Fortune all together by self even if I've only got 25% health left, can make them all left 10% health, just need a Master Yi Q to do triple. Just can't chase.

15 Garen

Good mobility, And while being tanky, he can also do ton of damage due to his true Damage against Villains.
Putting pressure on the enemy teams most precious champions.

Considering the tankines and the damage done Garen is one of the best toplaners to take, he can easily tank a lot of dmg while doing relatively high dmg by himself. One of the best if u want to climb.

Heals in seconds, does pretty good damage. Finisher ult, for tanks who don't want to die at the end.

Now he is even better made by lol, sick passive on level 11

16 Dr. Mundo

Who is the best tank in the game? Mundo
Who deserves to be number 1? Mundo

Why he isn't at least number five? he never ever die if you build him right

Dr mundo is the best and strongest champ

Come on he's most powerful tank

17 Taric

Guys, Taric has 2nd skill making op champions vulnerable plus his stun

Taric gonna backdoor you so hard

Gems are better than you man

Barrier pulse heal pulse heal pulse heal pulse heal. Oh not enough mana.

18 Teemo

Teemo is by far the strongest tank. No other champion compares to his global taunt that taunts everyone during teamfights. It's like shen, and basically every good aspect of every other champion, put together into an awesome temfighting, dps, tank, mage, assassin, stealth, carry.

Teemo is the strongest tank in the game and can out tank anybody.

U crazy man teemo its not tank

It is the perfect

19 Leona

A tank that can 1v1 the enemy adc and walks off like nothing happened. She can get the most amount of armor and mr possible in the game due to her W and she has 3 stuns.

Nice tank when played nicely with good coordination much of a setter.

So much stun which can be a big difference under allied turrets.

Build all health to make her unstoppable. Also the stun though

20 Thresh

Thresh is by far the strongest champion in the game if the player can use him the game is already won.

So great cc in teamfights his q op

21 Poppy

Fun to play but difficult if can't maneuver around skillshots and hooks. Would personally rate number 1.

The combination of her shield passive along with her W scaling and max health damage on Q makes her exceptionally viable.

My personal favorite and way better than the position on this list

Combined with passive and courage of the collosses an infinite shield. Good passive on w.

22 Sion

Very op my favorite tank and capital underrated, I also second on garden jaravan and Warwick although he is not a tank but he is the most op on the list.

He can soak up a huge amount of damage while still applying his cc capabilities. He is the best Champion to play with in my opinion

My personal favorite tank deals lots of damage too

Most satisfying tank tank fighter.

23 Tahm Kench

He is so overpowered, he quite literally cannot die because of grey health and being able to eat allies and other champions are op.

Tahm kench is very strong and have much hp so I recommend this champ

Broken if you just run a spirit visage into a warmogs or sunfire cape.

Kench is able to save friendlies and kill enimies with his W, slow and harass with his Q, survive the most brutal Ganks with his E and roam anywhere with his ult

24 Sejuani

Op passive she is a lategame queen get Righteous glory, and banshee's veil for an unstoppable gank, she also does 20% max health damige to champs she shatters meaning deleet tank. Her passive is also amazing giving you 100% bonus armour an Mt meaning 750 armour is easy to get that's about 88% reduced damage

Mobility, more HP = more Damage output.
Lots of HP&Armor and HP&M. Res items to build acordingly to situation.

Her stun makes her gank instant kill

25 Nasus

If you let nasus do ANYTHING! Farm kill jungle support, he will murder you. 1v1ing a nasus that's not dueling that's suicide.

With his R you gain extra health and also his passive gives 10-20% lifesteal depending on champion level.
He should at least be more tank then teemo.

Terrible guy who just has good stats

Is a threat late game.
