Best Assassin-Class Servants in Fate/Grand Order

ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Top Ten

1 Jack the Ripper Jack the Ripper

Definitely one of the best assassins around. Presence concealment A+, and has active skills befitting of a decent assassin. Noble Phantasm damage female servants greatly, which is great since most of the servants are female. She can also generate a lot of critical stars. And she's cute.

I don't get all the hubbub against Jack being a 5-star, but either way, she's exceptionally the best Assassin-class Servant in the game. At the very least, she's an expert at gaining tons of Critical stars and dealing some critical damage against enemies. And that's not all. Her Noble Phantasm pretty much ignores the target's defense buffs and increases damage against female enemies. Trust me, there's going to be a LOT of female bosses in the later parts of the game. If you manage to roll Jack when London is released, expect fighting Medb in E Pluribus Unum to be a cinch. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

2 Ryougi Shiki (Assassin) Ryougi Shiki (Assassin)
3 King Hassan King Hassan

While every Assassin here focuses on critical star drops and critical hits, this Grand Assassin is rather different. For King Hassan, or the Old Man of the Mountain, he specializes in Buster cards unlike Quick cards. In other words, he goes for brute force in his attacks. Not only that, but he's easily the most durable Servant of the Assassin class, given he has a high endurance and possesses a self-heal skill and a guts skill, the latter being able to revive with 5,000 HP max when maxed out. That's a lot more than any other Servant with the Guts skill! One of his passive class skills also makes him immune to instant kill attacks from enemies and also makes him more likely to deal instant kill attacks against enemies with normal attacks along with his Noble Phantasm. MAN, how'd I forget this guy?! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

With the proper set-up, King Hassan here can deal DEVESTATING damage with a Buster Crit Chain. He also has really good NP generation and Star Generation using the Musashi Glitch. Example: With proper Buffs, I had a King Hassan at JUST level 60 deal 400k damage with an NPBBEX chain. If that's not strong, I don't know WHAT is!

4 Carmilla Carmilla
5 EMIYA (Assassin) EMIYA (Assassin)
6 Shuten Douji Shuten Douji
7 Scathach (Assassin) Scathach (Assassin)
8 Jing Ke Jing Ke
9 Cursed Arm Hassan Cursed Arm Hassan

Until the London chapter comes out and you can roll for Jack the Ripper, Hassan will be your to-go-to when gaining tons of Critical Stars. His Noble Phantasm is also powerful since you won't only gain tons of Critical Stars, but also have a chance to inflict Death on an enemy. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

10 Sasaki Kojirou Sasaki Kojirou

Let me just say that what I'm about to say is not a lie: I actually managed to use the REGEND himself to deal the finishing blow on Shadow Marie Antoinette in the respective Servant's interlude! There's a reason he's called the Savior of France by players! As typical of the Assassin class, he's top-tier for gaining Critical Stars and dishing out devastating critical hits against enemies. Considering these advantages, it's no wonder he was a go-to Servant when it came to the wyvern-infested singularity of Orleans. Now I just need a few more Octuplet Twin Crystals to reach his final ascension... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 Mysterious Heroine X Mysterious Heroine X

...Yeah. I think I probably put Heroine X too high on this list just solely for her design. While she doesn't stand toe-to-toe with top-tier Assassin-class Servants like Jack the Ripper and King Hassan, she's still a good Assassin by her own merit. Granted, she's only at her peak for the Saber Wars event where she has a bonus affect against Saberfaces like Artoria herself by dealing extra damage to them with her Noble Phantasm. Outside of this bonus effect, she's still fairly decent at gaining critical stars. Otherwise, you might as well just hold on to her for the GUDAGUDA Meiji Ishin event. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

12 Henry Jekyll & Hyde Henry Jekyll & Hyde

I'm calling it now. As I slowly ascend Jekyll, I'm really feeling bad about ascending him. I want to do his Interlude, but I don't feel like making him give in to Hyde just yet through further Ascension, let alone even unleash his Noble Phantasm. I wouldn't want to break Jekyll's poor heart and based on how I interact with him in My Room, it's still too early for me to say goodbye to Jekyll and give in to Hyde. I'll... Have to think about it... - ModernSpongeBobSucks
