Gragas typically has a similar longest kill spree as his enemy does. Commonly, Gragas takes more damage than Syndra. This commonly reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also indicate that the champion with increased health has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from further harm when poked or engaged.

Gragas commonly tallies many fewer minion kills than Syndra. Champions who on average do not get many minion kills usually don't need much CS to be effective.
