Akali often has a similar longest killing spree as her enemy does. Typically, Akali receives less damage than Rek'Sai. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities, but it can also imply that the one champ has less agility and thus is not able to escape additional damage when poked or engaged.

Akali often racks up much more CS than Rek'Sai. Champs who on average do not amass a lot of minion kills usually do not have to have much CS to be useful. They are capable of scaling adequately off of their abilities alone. However, champions with tons of CS, such as hyper-carries, typically have to have a lot of gold to be useful.
