Karthus normally has a slightly smaller longest kill spree than his counter does. On average, Karthus receives less damage than Kled. This typically indicates 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 poked or engaged.

Karthus often gets many fewer minion kills than Kled. Champions who on average do not amass 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. Yet, champs with a lot of CS, such as carries, typically require a lot of gold to be useful.
