Karthus usually has a significant smaller longest killing spree than his opponent does. Typically, Karthus receives a similar amount of damage to Fizz. This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness, but it can also illustrate that the champ with higher HP has less agility and thus is unable to kite away from additional harm when engaged or poked.

In Karthus vs Fizz matchups, Karthus typically tallies much less CS than Fizz. Champions who on average don't get much CS normally do not need much CS to be useful.
