Best Assassin's Creed Characters

EvilAngel

The Top TenXW

1Ezio

Ezio is amazing because he is super stealthy, he brought back the trend of twin hidden blades, he has years of experience with the first ever hidden pistol, (Altair created it but only used it for a short time after creating the first model, while ezio used it almost through this assassin career), he can easily take out 30 guards all by himself (game mechanic but still good to think about in terms of his abilities), and ezio is also my favourite character of assassin his story is tragic but he can still keep a hold of his charm throughout his life, and only a few days before his death he still manages to help fight a gang of Templars in his home with the help of the Chinese assassin (now featured in assassins creed chronicles) while at roughly the same age as Altair and still doing that while Altair at the age of 90 could only fight using the apple of Eden, definitely the best assassin ever

Ezio downright, is the best assassin of all time. He is deadliest, most stealthy, and quietest assassin ever. Unlike connor, ezio actually gets his work done in right way. He does everything simple, not like connor who wastes time doing stuff his way which is fighting out in the open rather than being discrete and blending with the crowd. Ezio without doubt is far better than any other assassin including connor.

Ezio is by far the best he has the most emotional impact on me because he just has the saddest backstory. He's is also the most humble. He never denied help when he needed it like most other proud assassins, but I'm not shaming Altier I just think that in order to be great you need to have the ability to know when help is needed. Real strength is not being able to kill a ton of Templars by yourself but receiving help from others and that may not make much sense but it kinda dose in a way. I mean going into danger without a second thought may be courageous to some people but to me it is just plain selfish, there are people that would care if you had been killed, and I think Ezio REALLY understood that. Plus he just awesome

He is amazing

2Edward Kenway

Edward Kenway was a very interesting character. He started with having no regard for anyone, he just wanted to make money, which is a very interesting take on an individual in assassin's creed, but later on in the game, you see change in Edward as he shows remorse and sympathy and becomes a loving father. Furthermore, he is confident and daring and is quite the bad-ass since he has no fears. Also, he has a huge variety of skills; he has the coolest looking counters, when two guards attack edward at once, Edward finishes them off in style, he also is a captain of one of the most feared ships in the Caribbean seas, he also carries 4 guns, 2 swords, 2 hidden blades, sleeping darts, bezerk darts, etc. He can also swim away from sharks, dive, defeat many powerful people, which includes a sage. Also, not to mention the fact that he wasn't ever racist to his buddy on the Jackdaw and that he developed his skills with no mentoring, which is remarkable since his moves are most impressive. He is ...more

I hate that whiny Indian so much. Edward is so much better. He can climb tree's too and I like his character. He has duel wielding swords and he's a pirate. Can't get much better than that. - DunnaNunnaBatman

Edward is sure as hell number one. No competition at all. He has developed his own sense of morals and values, as well as his fighting style I guess. He just doesn't give a care about anything, he's deadly as it gets. Doesn't follow nobody but himself, that's the main thing that got me hooked. Oh, and yea.. has the most guts out of any other character that was introduced in the other AC games. One man army. That's basically it, one amazing character.

Edward Kenway is the best cause first of all he was a pirate became an assassin then became a privateer he is very skilled when it comes to killing and parkour.

3Altair

Altair is clearly the best assassin of all time. Just look at what he has done. He achieved the master assassin rank 25, which is the youngest age that an assassin has ever gained that title. He brought the order out of corruption, not once, not twice, but three times. He is the reason that the assassins went around the world starting bureaus, so that they are not vulnerable to attack and so that they could spread the ways of their order. He created the codex, came up with new technology, and is the only person to understand the apple of eden as well as he did. He is the renowned father of the order and is a totally unstoppable assassin. I am not dissing on Ezio here, but you just can't go up against Altair's skill, wisdom, and legacy. He has clearly affected the order the most in a good way. Altair is the model for all assassins everywhere. Altair was active during the crusades! Thousands of years later, he is still looked upon by everyone as the greatest assassin there ever was. ...more

Altair is a wise guy to me he questioned his master and even demanded answers from him when he could have killed him so he's pretty bold too and the fact that he killed 10 people in his journey for his rank and redeem in the brotherhood (by the way I said 10 and the people who played it know what I mean if anyone haven't played it I'm not gonna spoil it)

Altair doesn't need the apple because he can already kick butt without it

4Desmond

I miss him in the series so much. He was a great guy. I understand why he abandoned the creed when he was younger. Dude, he doesn't wanted to fight oé hurt everyone, he was always forced to make part of something he never wanted for. He just wished a normal life nothing less or more. The guy doesn't had even a decent childhood or perhaps a life. For me, he is a very strong guy may not the best character, but I don't agree that Ezio is the best. Dude, I mean, think. Desmond was a animus subject, so, he had all his ancestors skills also, Altair+Ezio+Connor= Desmond's assassin skills. And now I ask two things for you: 1- HOW in the earth Ezio could defeat someone with his same abilities and the double because of Altair and Connor? / 2- if you voted in ezio, did you make this because he is the more badass according to other opinions, OR because AC2 and ACB are considered the best games in the series also both with him protagonizing?

Desmond surely is the strongest, he is the most powerful assassin there is, having learnt all the skill of Altair, Ezio and Connor, no one stands a chance before him, and also for his sacrifice, no one is nobler than him, perhaps except Altair

Desmond Was The Most Emotional, I Always Thought That Desmond Was #1

Why did they need to kill poor Desmond he was so cool now we are playing as a mute idiot.

5Haytham Kenway

Best character in Assassins Creed 3. - DunnaNunnaBatman

Who doesn't love Grand master Sass, shame his son wasn't more interesting.

He was a great man despite only having Hidden Blade, Flintlock pistol and sword, but he fought very polite like what he said

My inspiration

6Shay Cormac

Shay for me is probably one of the most interesting characters next to altair. He had his reasons for abandoning the creed and with good reasons too not to mention they tried to kill him and left him for dead. Also it takes a very strong, intelligent, cunning and determined person to become a hunter of hunters so

"Life's hardest choices are the ones that force you to question your own moral codes. My choice has led me here, standing against those I once called brothers. History may brand me traitor, rebel, or renegade. But in the end, it doesn't matter how history remembers me. What matters, is that I followed my own creed." - Best line ever

Okay, let me get this straight - Shay was so amazing! He may have gone against the creed but he was doing it for good reasons. He proved throughout the whole game that he is a man worthy to be called a hero. I like that even though his friends were all doing wrong, he still went against them to do what was right - no matter how much he cared about them. It just shows how strong and amazing he is.

He is the best templar

7Connor

Connor is a great example of something in society called "the demonization of the introvert." Connor is good character, and assassin. Most people seem not to like him "because he isn't Ezio." Connor speaks louder through his actions than his words. He is an introvert, and had a hard time accepting his role as a leader in the assassins and the lifestyle they live. Just look at his life. Everyone who he has put faith in has either died, been killed by him, or stabbed him in the back, and after all of it he continues to carry on in the assassins. He had no support system of reliable people growing up, and because of that, he relied more on himself in the beginning. This can be seen when Connor spares the life of a Templar, despite Achilles telling him to kill him. However, Connor learns from the tragedies that befall him and begins to examine the philosophies of the Assassins and embrace them. This can be seen in Assassin's Creed: Liberation when he follows his orders ...more

So underrated- His whole life was a struggle. He lost his family, his tribe, his mother, his mentor, his trust in many and he suffered from many shocks like when he realised Washington burned his village. He had to grow up fatherless and had always known his father was a traitor and evil etc. A civil war was taking place as well and after supporting one side he learned the truth and realised that BOTH sides were evil and were in his way. On top of all this the burden of saving the assassins in the colonies was huge as they were all killed by his father. He then had to go assassinate the whole templar order in the colonies. Alone. His tribe's warriors were manipulated by templars and he then had to kill his best friend. AND AFTER ALL THAT he was nearly killed by his own father. After the story is finished his tribe abandoned him and Achilles dies. It is said he gets married and has kids- but they leave him unjustly and he is left wondering why his life went so tragic. AND AFTER ALL OF ...more

Connor is a very skilled assassin, yes many people hate him and like Ezio but forget about the looks for ONE moment. You have to see what each character has been through and personally, I think Connor has been through hell the most. He had to watch his mother burn alive at only 4 years old, kill his own father and watch all of the people he had faith in, die. Connor is also the best and skilled fighter out of all the assassins, don't believe me? Watch the Assassin's Creed 3 trailer and see him taking out an entire army. After all of the struggle, he got married and had kids, but they left him alone with nobody. Connor had to spend the rest of his life by himself, but did he become angry? Did he become upset? NO. HE STAYED CALM. HE HAD NO ONE BUT STILL STAYED CALM. Connor needs to be in the top 3, he shouldn't have had to go through all of that stress. Ubisoft didn't make the mistake, we did. So snap back to reality, have a good look at Connor and see that he is the most caring, ...more

Connor is like the Wolverine...who had immense regenerative health capabilities even in the middle of a conflict

8Arno

He loved a Templar like Altair and joined the brotherhood for revenge like Ezio. He is determined to do what is right like Connor and he is determined to achieve something great like Edward. He betrayed the brotherhood for the sake of others like Shay and and is willing to sacrifice for the greater good like Desmond.

If you like Altair and him betraying the creed well so dose Arno but he only joined the assassins for redemption!

Arno is supposed to be at least stronger than shay. I mean, Shay did kill his father. The bad guys always lose.

Arno is a classic assassin with a interesting story. He also has the best missions out of most of the games/characters

9Jacob Frye

Jacob and evie are the best perfection, a humorous and funny assassin is very likely to be the best. His attitude and style of hat and hood exchange is really good. I love funny guys.

I really dislike Evie, her personality put a bad taste in my mouth. But Jacob? Yes please! He's one of my all time favorites and I love his personality, his sarcasm is incredible and I wish there was more of it!

Jacob has one of the best fight sequence and is also very lively, his sarcastic remarks make the game..

Jacob kills like the devil

10Leonardo Da Vinci

I Like Leonardo he's A Really Old Friend Of Ezio, He Decodes Codex Page, Made Weapons Etc... Nothing To Say But He's The Best!

I laughed when he pretended to cut Ezio's ring finger off

Who could not love Leonardo the Vinci

The Contenders

11Evie Frye

Not the best but she is clearly an amazing assassin who thinks clearly, analyzes situations and acts the best way possible in order to achieve her goal while not endangering the life of others and she even fixes the screw-ups of her twin brother Jacob who recklessly makes decisions and doesn't completely care about the effects of his actions. Evie is great when it comes to stealth and is smart, following in the footsteps of her late father(who Evie described to be the ideal assassin.) Overrall Evie Frye is a great assassin when it comes to stealth, strategy, and combat.

She is one of the best assassin's ever only guys like ezio and altair can match her

I loved playing as Evie. She was way more assassin-y than Jacob. I rank her 3rd behind Ezio and Arno. Edward Kenway was badass but he was a pirate.

12Adewale

It was a shame you had to kill him in Rogue

He is a great assassin and the only assassin that's born into slavery

This guy can beat the hell out of Shay which is a huge bonus.

Adewale is awesome because I said so

13Stede Bonnet

In the first mission, Steve looks like he wants to kill Edward. Proof? Look when Edward rescued Steve

He is some jolly guy. I like him. Although I am saying this doesn't he become a pirate?!?!

He's such a great guy, he should be top 10

He is very optimistic

14Elise

She is a woman with guts and honour. Her charisma, her complete and utter determination, her stubbornness, even her arrogance and haughtiness. I bloody love everything about that woman.

She's the reason why I bought Unity

I'd put here Achilles Davenport since he is a awesome character in both Rogue and III.He trained many and basically was a very famous mentor in the colonial brotherhood of Assassins.

I was shocked by the revelation of her alliegence and that Desmond said he CHOSE to kill her. - Therandom

18Al Mualim
19Edward Thatch (Blackbeard)

He's a legend in real life! Come on people!?

It's BlackBeard Guys! He need to be a bit up.

Ed Teach is an old friend of edward and is possibly one of the best

One of the awful moments of AC4 is when he died.
