Janna typically has a significant smaller longest kill spree than her enemy does. Commonly, Janna takes less damage than Rek'Sai. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also show that the one champion has less mobility and thus is unable to flee from additional damage when poked or engaged.

Janna commonly tallies a similar number of minion kills than Rek'Sai. Champions who on average do not finish with a lot of minion kills normally don't require much CS to be useful.
