Nidalee usually has a slightly smaller longest kill spree than her enemy does. Commonly, Nidalee receives more damage than Kalista. This typically indicates differing health capacities; however, it can also illustrate that the champ with more HP has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from further harm when poked or engaged.

In Nidalee vs Kalista matchups, Nidalee typically totals many fewer minion kills than Kalista. Champs who on average do not acquire much CS normally don't require much CS to be useful.
