Gnar normally has a much larger longest kill spree than his foe does. On average, Gnar takes more damage than Lulu. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities, but it can also show that the champion with higher HP has less agility and thus is unable to kite away from further damage when poked or engaged.

In Gnar vs Lulu matchups, Gnar usually racks up much more CS than Lulu. Champs who on average do not earn a lot of minion kills typically do not have to have much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling easily off of their abilities alone. However, champs with plenty of CS, such as ADCs, typically have to have a lot of items to be useful.
