This commonly reflects differing health capacities; however, it can also show that the one champ has less mobility and thus is unable to kite away from additional damage when engaged or poked.

Graves often tallies a few more minion kills than Master Yi. Champs that do not earn very much CS normally do not need much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale easily off their skills and stats alone. However, champions with many minion kills, such as ADCs, typically require a lot of items to be useful.
