You can just about "carry" with anyone depending on how good you are.
These are just the preferred characters all squishy and just CC or just OP.
-Riven - I don't really need to get into details. About the only major champ that can truly counter her is Olaf and Renekton. However, even against Olaf, Riven can do well as long as you can dodge his axes and time your Q, W, E well. Also, with her ult and the right masteries/runes, it'll be VERY easy for you to kill multiple enemy champions during a team fight; even when you have like 5-10% hp left.
-Fizz as said before. Fizz is amazing and I carried a game with him. However, it will be VERY easy to become arrogant and over-commit. Just do not do that and use your ult very wisely. Have your teammates hide in good location and you "initiate" to bait them to attack you. Back up a bit and find a good position to ult from. Ping for them to attack right before you shoot your ult where the cluster of enemies are. Let your teammates pwn them for a second or two, then charge in with your Q, use your W accordingly and you can even use Playful Trickster if you don't need to escape and prefer to use that AoE damage.
-JAX - I don't even need to describe why you can carry games with him. Just learn to use his skills well and you won't have a problem. Jax is a very amazing top laner.
-Irelia - Irelia IMO is one of the better champs to 1v3 or sometimes 1v4.
-Diana - easy to shut down but a good Diana player will just PWN everyone. I'm not that great but I have had games where I could shut down the entire enemy team myself with good kiting and usage of my Q, W and ult. I usually don't like telling peopel squishy champs can carry because a lot of people WILL overextend. Squishy champs like APC's can carry games hard too but it won't work if you are careless with them as they can still die easily. Good news about Diana is that she is generally tankier than most APC's because of her W spell. Fed Ezreal is easy to kill but it's hard to even touch a great Ez.
