Aatrox typically has a similar longest killing spree as his enemy does. Typically, Aatrox takes more damage than Malphite. This typically indicates differing health capacities; however, it can also show that the champion with more health has less mobility and thus is unable to escape additional damage when poked or engaged.

Aatrox commonly earns a bit more CS than Malphite. Champs who on average don't get much CS usually do not require much CS to be useful. They are able to scale easily off their skills and stats alone.
