Xayah typically has a slightly larger longest kill spree than her opponent does. Typically, Xayah takes less damage than Karthus. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also hint that the champion with increased HP has less agility and thus is unable to escape additional damage when engaged or poked.

Xayah typically takes many more minion kills than Karthus. Champions who on average don't get much CS usually do not need much CS to be effective. Instead, they are capable of scaling well off their skills and stats alone. However, champions with large numbers of minion kills, such as ADCs, usually require a lot of gold to be effective.
