Ryze usually has a slightly smaller longest killing spree than his enemy does. Commonly, Ryze receives a similar amount of damage to Pantheon. This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also show that the one champ has less mobility and thus is not able to kite away from further harm when engaged or poked.

In Ryze vs Pantheon matchups, Ryze commonly gets many more minion kills than Pantheon. Champions who on average don't amass much CS normally don't have to have much CS to be effective.
