I agree, it doesn't seem possible to me, either. That's why I was (and honestly still am) confused as to how he killed me. What in the world would I gain by exaggerating? (that's rhetorical)
The only two explanations I've been able to conceive are: League's calculation of the damage inflicted by that skill was incorrect, or perhaps there was a glitch and I was struck by something silent and invisible. Perhaps Garen really had to go to the bathroom and just unloaded right there and Mundo couldn't stand it. That leaves only one question....
What did Garen eat that caused TRUE DAMAGE?! Probably a teemo mushroom. ANyyywaayyy....
Thanks for working out all of the mathematics that support the notion it is impossible...but apparently it isn't. If anyone else has a theory on that situation I'm interested to know. I had no less than 89 resist, but I think I had under 100 resist, and I am one-hundred percent certain I had over 3800 health- I think it was 3990-something but am fairly certain it was no more than 4200.
As other champions I've had Garen deal around 40% damage to kill me with the ability as well. In fact, it has happened so often I just assume I'm dead if I get below half health while fighting Garen (I keep fighting, but I expect to die). The items I see on these Garen's don't really explain anything, either. None of them built weird like stacking AP or something, just regular ol' Garen stuff, Black cleaver and mostly damage/tanking items.
There was no weird lag (so far as I could tell) or anything like that.
