Kassadin typically has a much larger longest kill spree than his foe does. Commonly, Kassadin receives more damage than Malphite. This often reflects differing health capacities, but it can also show that the one champ has less mobility and thus is not able to escape further damage when poked or engaged.

Kassadin commonly totals a bit more CS than Malphite. Champs who on average do not earn many minion kills typically do not need much CS to be useful. They are capable of scaling fully off of their abilities alone. Yet, champs with tons of CS, such as carries, typically have to have a lot of items to be useful.
