See: Amumu, Rammus, Mundo, Galio, Nasus, Nunu, at times Vlad, Blitz, hell... every actual "tank".
About never seeing a good DPS Garen, I've never seen $1,000,000 in one place before. It must not exist.
You are very arrogant,.
Yi is not a decent tank because that one initiation move is on a long cooldown and he has no way to help his team once he is in theirs. He does not have any tanking moves (and no, meditate is hardly a tanking move. If he used that in a teamfight everyone would completely ignore him).
The next sentence proves to me your idiocy. Are you telling me that you would *only* try to 5v1 someone if they were dps?
That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.
Each of those tanks serve a specific purpose, Garen is all around uesful.
Amumu is great for initiation. With smart enemies, though, he can be completely avoided. Killing him is easier than other tanks as his only tanky move is tantrum.
Rammus is great vs DPS and an ok initiator. He amasses armor and pushes towers. Get a caster on his ass and hes a dead armidillo. Juking is also easy because of his high speed, most rammus' click where the person is going, not on them. This is both an advantage and a disavantage:
They don't stop moving through lack of vision of the person (i.e. brush, corners).
If juked correctly can waste a whole 2 seconds of fast movement in the wrong direction due to this.
Mundo has great regen, but terrible initiation. The most he can do for his team is cleaver spam. A horrible tank, the fact that you mentioned him as a tank makes me lose respect for you.
Galio get molested by DPS. He is great to counter an already squishy archetype. Congrats...
Are you seriously saying Nunu is better than Garen?
