Singed typically has a slightly smaller longest kill spree than his enemy does. Commonly, Singed receives more damage than Malzahar. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness, but it can also hint that the champion with increased HP has less agility and thus is unable to flee from additional harm when poked or engaged.

Singed often earns a similar amount of CS than Malzahar. Champions who on average don't acquire many minion kills usually do not need much CS to be useful.
