Janna typically has a significant smaller longest kill spree than her counter does. Typically, Janna takes less damage than Olaf. This often reflects differing health capacities; however, it can also imply that the one champion has less agility and thus is unable to kite away from additional damage when engaged or poked.

Janna usually racks up fewer minion kills than Olaf. Champions that don't finish with much CS usually do not need much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling easily off their skills and stats alone. However, champs with plenty of minion kills, such as carries, usually need a lot of gold to be effective. In either case, work to do better than the averages displayed here to do well.
