Can any character be a AD carry so to speak?

Well I was in a co-op vs. ai game.

I went ADC as janna.

I wasn't AS good as the varus but I had 10/2/14 or something.

Anyway long story short, is it possible for taric, leona, blitzcrank, brand (yes I saw that youtube video), annie, anivia, etc to be adc?

They each have their own perks.

Anyone with range can be a ranged AD carry. Doesn't mean that they're good at it though.

Yep. You can build anyone in anyway and it CAN work. I've seen AP blitzcranks absolutely dominate and I just got carried by an AD Ahri a little bit ago.

So, the things that tend to make an AD carry strong (cause you are right in that they all have essentially the same basic attack), is what utility their skills give, if they need scaling, and if the auto attack is augmented in some way.

A lot of AD carries are strong because their skills scale with AD, or they have skills that don't scale and just always useful, or because their autoattack is altered in some way to be more powerful (i.e. vayne)

I saw an AD kennen the other day, and when you think about it, it sort of does make sense. He has a lot of ways to stun, to escape, his auto attack applies a bonus effect, and he has long range. Might be seeing more of him in the future.

If you can make it work. I mean I play a mean AD Orionna, Kennen, and Lux. But I never do it in Solo Q, cause people whine so much and sometimes it requires a specific support.

Anyone can do any role in the game, it's just the matter of whether it synergizes well and/or is practical.

I'm thinking about just buying a couple of AP mids...

and using those few characters exclusively.

(As in, solo tops, supports, mids, and ADCs)

So like morgana for all roles, but if someone locks her in I'll still have anivia for all those roles, etc.

there are several factors as to why not every character can be an AD carry.
Any melee champ has to build somewhat tanky instead of full damage to survive running into the middle of the fight

Mage champs dont have abilities that scale off AD and dont have abilites that work with auto attacks

IE. Graves' dash gives atk spd, Ez passive atk spd, Draven axes bonus AD damage.

The other factor people dont think about is the atk animation. Some characters have very awkward animations that actually slow down the champs atk spd.

Good examples: Anivia, Karthus(Why do u think ppl farm with Q?), annie.

Some Mages do have decent animations, Ahri and Kennen are viable because they have good animations and Kennen has an ability that scales off ad
