Tyranitar @ Leftovers
Adamant ? 220 Atk, 180 Speed, 108 HP
Sandstream
~ Earthquake
~ Stone Edge
~ Dragon Dance
~ Crunch / Taunt

Your standard Dragon Dance Tyranitar. It has enough Speed to hit 203 Speed, making it possible for him to outspeed max Speed Adamant Garchomp after 1 Dragon Dance and Choice Scarf Adamant Heracross after a second time. The three attacks it has are the standard ones: Stone Edge and Crunch for solid STAB attacks and Earthquake for random coverage. With 108 HP EVs, he?ll be at 368 HP, a magical number for Leftovers. The remaining 220 EVs were put into Atk.
If you?re going to use Taunt on this, replace Crunch with it, as Crunch and either one of the other two attacking moves leaves you with a bad type coverage. Earthquake and Stone Edge together hit most of the things around with neutral damage at least, so those should be your moves of choice.

Tyranitar @ Choice Band
Adamant ? 252 Atk, 252 Speed,4 HP
Sandstream
~ Earthquake
~ Crunch
~ Stone Edge
~ Pursuit / Focus Punch

CBtar: max Atk and max Speed are obligatory, as it needs to hit as hard as possible. The 4 attacks he has are pretty much the same as with the first set, with the only difference being a fourth slot also dedicated to dealing damage. Both Pursuit and Focus Punch are solid options here, as Pursuit can help you out greatly to take random stuff like Azelf down when you come in on them. Focus Punch is also a nice move to throw at an incoming opponent, as always. Don?t let the fact that you?ve already got a Dark move discourage you from using Pursuit here, because that last move on him is mostly a filler of some sort and Pursuit does some things that Crunch don?t. Although Crunch allows for consistent damage, Pursuit can disable threats that can?t handle your Tyranitar but are sure to wreck some havoc later in the game.

Tyranitar @ Leftovers
Quiet ? 252 HP, 68 Speed, 188 SpAtk
Sandstream
~ Thunderbolt
~ Ice Beam / Dark Pulse
~ Substitute
~ Focus Punch

The standard and famous Tyraniboah. It uses a Quiet nature because it doesn?t really need a lot of Speed to work. The 68 EVs still make sure you?ll outspeed the minimum of neutral Speed Weezing, to make sure you can get a Sub up before being crippled by Will-O-Wisp. The rest of the EV spread is focused mainly on making Substitute as good as possible: maxed out HP means it?ll create 101 HP Substitutes, enabling it to survive a Blissey?s Seismic Toss and deal massive damage back at it. Thunderbolt and Ice Beam are your main form of offense, only being resisted by two pokemon that are commonly used: Magnezone and Lanturn. Focus Punch hits the first one super effectively and the latter with neutral damage, meaning almost nothing resists all three of its attacks (Shedinja is the only one to do so).
Dark Pulse is now an option to replace Crunch on this set and should certainly be considered.

Tyranitar @ Leftovers / Chesto Berry (with Rest only)
Careful ? 252 SpDef, 244 HP, 12 Def
Sandstream
~ Curse
~ Earthquake
~ Stone Edge
~ Crunch / Rest / Fire Blast / Taunt

Now that Sandstorm will boost Tyranitar?s SpDef, Curse is a very viable option to make this thing become very bulky, as it enables this to take physical hits very effectively. The fact that Curse will boost your Def is the reason for why this set?s EV spread is mainly focused on taking special hits. As it is now, Tyranitar can take a Focus Blast from a max SpAtk Timid Alakazam holding the Life Orb without dieing from it. That?s pretty amazing if you ask me.
With Curse, you?ll be able to deal with a whole lot of things very effectively. The problem is the downgraded Speed and with no reliable recovery move, you can find yourself in a bit of a tight spot when using this strategy. With Earthquake and Stone Edge forming your main offense, you?ll get walled by Skarmory, Bronzong, Claydol, Torterra and Breloom pretty badly. Crunch can help with this, but Skarmory, Torterra and Breloom still won't take a lot of damage from your attacks then, making Fire Blast a reliable option as well. Taunt can help dealing with Skarmory (as it?ll only be able to use Drill Peck, and that?s not going to hurt this Tyranitar at all), Bronzong and Claydol, but Torterra and Breloom will still pose as potential walls against this then. Fire Blast handles most of the mentioned pokemon quite well, so that?d be my first pick. Still, having no recovery move at all hurts this quite a bit.
Note that with this spread and Leftovers, you?ll be able to survive 4 Seismic Tosses from anything at level 100, due to the recovery Leftovers provides you with. Running Rest and a Chesto Berry on this takes this ability away.

Tyranitar @ Choice Specs
Modest ? 252 SpAtk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Sandstream
~ Dark Pulse
~ Thunderbolt
~ Ice Beam
~ Focus Punch / Fire Blast / Flamethrower / Focus Blast

An obligatory Choice Specs set. Tyranitar has a pretty solid SpAtk stat and the movepool to use it effectively, so a special sweeping set should not be ignored so easily. The EV spread is standard: maxed out SpAtk to ensure you do as much damage as you can and max Speed to get a tie with other Tyranitar and to outspeed pokemon that float just below you (Milotic, Suicune, etc).
Dark Pulse is in for the obvious STAB, making it this guy?s main form of offense. The fact that it gets BoltBeam is amazing as well, so there?s no reason not to take advantage out of that. Focus Punch finally, is to take down Blissey. If you don?t want to use a moveslot to add such an attack, just to counter Blissey, go with any one of the three other options. Focus Blast will help greatly, as you?ll be able to hit everything with neutral damage at least, outside of Heracross, when paired up with Dark Pulse. A fire attack can also be very helpful in a lot of cases, just for the extra type coverage (hits Magnezone super effectively, who resists all your other attacks).

Tyranitar @ Leftovers
Careful ? 252 HP, 160 Speed, 88 SpDef
Sandstream
~ Substitute
~ Toxic
~ Protect
~ Stone Edge

You start with Substitute and try to poison something with Toxic afterwards, while also keeping damage stack through Sandstorm. Protect deals a nice extra amount of damage to your opponent?s HP while you take no damage at all (they take Toxic damage + Sandstorm damage), and as an added bonus, you recover 1/16th of your max HP due to Leftovers as well. It has enough Speed to outpace Jolly max Speed Rhyperior, so you can lock it into Earthquake by using Protect (if it?s Choice Banded), and then switch to something else that?s immune to it.
Stone Edge should be in here, because you don?t want to get raped by a Gyarados taunting you. Be aware of Heracross, because once it gets its Guts boost, it?s immensely powerful. This would work wonders alongside Stealth Rock support.

Tyranitar @ Leftovers
Adamant ? 240 HP, 168 Def, 108 Atk
Sandstream
~ Sleep Talk
~ Rest
~ Stone Edge
~ Earthquake

SleepTalking Tyranitar. The emphasis of its EV spread lays with physical defense, as you?ve already got Sandstorm to boost your SpDef quite a bit. With this much Def EVs, it?s guaranteed to live through an Earthquake coming from a Jolly, max Atk, Life Orbed Garchamp, which is quite the achievement. The 240 HP EVs put him at 401, enough to survive 4 Seismic Tosses. The remaining EVs were dumped in Atk, to give this guy some sort of offensive capabilities.
Stone Edge and Earthquake are standards, as they have, like said earlier, great synergy together due to the large amount of types they cover. The rest has been explained mostly in previous sets.

Tyranitar @ Life Orb / Leftovers
Adamant ? 252 Atk, 180 Speed, 76 HP
Sandstream
~ Rock Polish
~ Earthquake
~ Stone Edge
~ Crunch / Taunt

Basically the same as the Dragon Dance set, aside from the fact that this can set up its Speed faster. After only 1 Rock Polish, it?ll outspeed Choice Scarf Adamant Heracross. The problem is that its Atk suffers from this, which means you might want to go with a Life Orb as hold item here. Earthquake and Stone Edge, again, form your primary offense and Crunch can be added to the mix for a solid STAB attack and as a way to deal with Claydol. Taunt however can also be used effectively.

Tyranitar @ Choice Scarf
Adamant ? 252 Atk, 180 Speed, 76 HP
Sandstream
~ Earthquake
~ Stone Edge
~ Crunch
~ Fire Blast / Focus Punch

This works quite the same as the CB set, only that it lacks some of the offensive capabilities that set has. In return though, you get to outspeed things right from the start. With this spread, you?ll outspeed Adamant Garchomp with max Speed. The set is the same as the CB one, except for the lack of Pursuit, which just isn?t that great with no Atk boost at all.

Tyranitar @ Leftovers ** Credit for this set goes to BlackArmor
Impish - 252 Def, 44 HP, 32 Atk, 180 Speed
Sandstream
~ DD
~ Taunt / Protect / Crunch
~ Stone Edge
~ Earthquake

Tyranitar can make a very solid bulky sweeper with its well-placed stats, altogether with the handsome 100 base HP. The 252 Defense EVs and Impish nature put It on 350, which is a great stat for taking hits, especially when backed up by 352 HP and keeping on the other side of the spectrum 354 Special Defense, allowing TTar to take hit's very well. 180 Speed Evs allows TTar to outspeed Adamant Garchomp after the first Dragon Dance and CS Heracross after the second one. Protect is an interesting option considering how limited are TTar's ways of recovery.

there are many different ways to use tyranitar so go wild!!
