Nautilus usually has a slightly smaller longest kill spree than his counter does. Commonly, Nautilus receives more damage than Zyra. This commonly reflects differing health capacities, but it can also show that the one champ has less agility and thus is unable to flee from further harm when poked or engaged.

Nautilus usually totals a similar number of minion kills than Zyra. Champions who on average do not amass very much CS usually do not have to have much CS to be effective. Instead, they are capable of scaling properly off their skills and stats alone. Yet, champions with plenty of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, usually require a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, try to outperform the values presented here to do well.
