As an example, Renekton’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 1.9 is not as good as Karthus’s ratio of 2.4, highlighting that Renekton may be less central to his team's team fighting potential than Karthus.

Renekton often has a similar longest killing spree as his enemy does. Typically, Renekton receives more damage than Karthus. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness, but it can also illustrate that the champ with increased HP has less agility and thus is unable to flee from further damage when poked or engaged.

Renekton commonly earns much more CS than Karthus. Champs who on average don't finish with a lot of minion kills normally do not require much CS to be effective.
