Rakan often has a significant smaller longest killing spree than his counter does. Typically, Rakan receives more damage than Zyra. This typically indicates differing health capacities; however, it can also hint that the champion with more health has less mobility and thus is not able to flee from additional damage when engaged or poked.

Rakan commonly racks up fewer minion kills than Zyra. Champs who on average don't earn many minion kills normally do not need much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling well off of their abilities alone. Yet, champions with large numbers of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, typically have to have a lot of items to be useful. In either situation, try to exceed the averages shown here to do well.
