Counter Tips to Beat
Rengar is played in the jungle
Rengar, probably the most hated champion among AD Carries and the supports who get flamed for not peeling correctly. Rengar is an AD Assassin who farms the jungle, typically until level six, though not always.
He has one shot potential, and temporary invisiblility that allows him to look for picks on people who don't always have the chance to run away before they find themselves staring at grey screen. Rengar is unique in the fact that he has a ferocity mechanic that empowers his abilities as opposed to any sort of depleting resource.

Our Top Counter Tips For Rengar
Rengar gets low early, and will rely on Ferocity empowered Battle Roars to survive the jungle, with a strong counterjungler, killing him in his jungle comes easy.
Rengar is an assassin and as such, is relatively squishy. A good Rengar will always look to come after the main fight, if you can save your CC for him, he's an easy pick for your team.
A great deal of Rengars strength comes from being invisible, so saving combat pink wards for him, or even just carrying a sweeping lens so that you know his position negates a large amount of the advantage he can pull on your team.
Grouping with someone greatly reduces Rengars strength. Especially if that someone has hard CC.
Champions That Counter Rengar
You want to jump on my team? Taunt. You want to try and 1v1 me with your enhanced auto's? Taunt - Defense Curl. Do you want to do anything ever? Taunt, and watch as my team kills you. Rammus doesn't particularly beat Rengar in the early game, but at every point after that, he just denies everything Rengar wants to do, while still have more versatile level 3 ganks.
He wants to jump on your team? You can just jump on him jumping on your team with your ult. Or just fear him and watch your team take their violent revenge on him. This is another champion that laughs at everything Rengar wants to do, and makes him hate his life.
This is pretty straightforward. She stuns him six times and hits exhaust and then Rengar dies. She's also tanky, so she's not very scared of getting close to him and consistently hitting Q until someone finally kills him.
Invincibility, CC and Armor. A good Taric is going to get a Rengar killed, while he protects his AD Carry. Much like Leona, it becomes a CC into exhaust situation, and then Rengar dies.
Armor and vision. Randuins and Sunfire Cape are important here. Randuins decreases the damage you take from his Q (I mean, all armor does, but Randuins specifically) and Sunfire Cape punishes him for being close and allowing you to survive. A sweeping trinket is also good to give your team his position in grouping scenario's. And for the time being, a holding a combat pink ward will also give you an edge.
