Best Assassins In the Assassin's Creed Series


The Top Ten

1 Ezio Auditore da Firenze Ezio Auditore da Firenze

Ezio if my favorite because of his personality and he has a badass outfit. Edward is my second favorite. Conner is just a dick, so no. Altair would kick all of their asses though. Even though his game didn't allow you to do much, he would beat them.

Ezio is the best, you see him transformation young boy into a master assassin. He has been in the most games for a reason! Ezio has every quality for the best assassin and even more.

Ezio is the best because he spent three decades training and fighting templars. Also he has good attitude around people and he is a very patient man and followed his mentor's orders.

Love the fella, he's honestly an amazing character.

2 Edward Kenway Edward Kenway

This guy slaughtered pirates, slayed a master assassin and could destroy an entire Warship along with its crew just by himself. Hold on, HE DID ALL OF THAT WITHOUT FORMAL TRAINING. He was naturally skilled, cunning and Brutal as hell. If he and connor had a fight, unfortunately Connor wouldn't get a chance to enjoy his last 10 seconds of life. I'll end it there.

Well he's better than connor he has more guns was skilled even without assassin training

Yo have to play ac4 then you would understand why he is better than any other assassin

Black flag is the best

3 Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad

He never got hurt unless player made a mistake

I think that Altair should be the best. Although in the games, he doesn't have much skill, he is the original assassin. All the others only come after him. If there ever was a fight between all the assassins, I'm sure the he would win easily!

Though ezio has better character evolution, I adore the plot twists involved with the game. And his missions in assassins creed revelations were perfect and amazing

Gotta go with the original man.

4 Connor (Ratonhnhaké:ton) Connor (Ratonhnhaké:ton)

Conor has a brilliant story with him being a Native American turned assassin, the story he goes through in AC3 is fernomimal with the fighting and deaths. Before AC3 was released my favourite assassin was Ezio because if his back story and his ambition to protect the brotherhood, but Conor already having the ambition to stop the bad against the good before he was in the brotherhood. Conor is in the best story told Assassins creed with the best costume and missions as well.

Connor is bigger faster and stronger than all the other assassins. People just want to hate because he wasn't charismatic like Ezio but he was stoic instead. Connor would dominate all the assassins to date until they move forward to more modern stories.

Most people like Ezio because his back story. Connor watched his village burn down, with everyone he knew in it, and besides he is a way better climber than Ezio...

According to me, he is the best because being a native and losing mother at a young age, and father being in opposite side he became an assassin and lead the nation towards freedom.

5 Shay Cormac Shay Cormac

He is one of the best Assasin Templar in history he had the best reason I can think of because the creed that he was in made him kill millions

Not really an assassin... - lukemcnamara72

He is an Assassin. He may of joined the Templars, but that doesn't change who he is or his training in the brotherhood. - RogerMcBaloney

He has beautiful adventures and an enemy of assassins

He pulled the wool over the assassins eyes

6 Haytham Kenway

The best character, but he ain't an Assassin - Crisium

Not an assassin... - lukemcnamara72

Haytham is by far the coolest character in ACIII, if not in the whole series. He's cunning, decisive, brutal, and just awesome. - ShuhBanggg

He is an Assassin only by blood, as a descendant of Adam. However, he does not deserve to be called one. - ameentheguitarist23

7 Arno Dorian Arno Dorian

Arno is just the best he has an awesome costume and in the end he has the nicest costume ever in ac and I hope they make more games with him like Ezio because he is the most amazing assassin and it doesn't feel right leaving it where the game ends plus at the end he was so young like Ezio and he only gets the best costume when you complete the game so you don't get the chance to youse it unless they make another game with him wearing that outfit so people can try it out!

Arno has a great personality and is a very skilled assassin. I personally think he is comparable to Ezio. I also think he should have at least another game starting where Unity left off. His girlfriend is dead, he got kicked out of the Brotherhood (I know he joins back later but it should be in a game too) and there's just too many loose ends that should be tied in knots.

He is just the best assassin ever born and I hope they do more games starring him like Ezio and his eagle vision is the best because he can see people trough walls!

He must move up on this list because I think he is just awesome and he is just the most amazing assassin I would love to see him move up on this list! - Assassin458

8 Aveline de Grandpré

The only and best female assassin

No get her out

Lady Aveline de Grandpre is the only female assassin on this list, and in my opinion, way better than connor, she has his skills but with abit more variety

9 Desmond Miles

Desmond has to be the best because he has memory of altair, ezio and connor memory and figthing style

Desmond is epic - 2storm

10 Evie Frye

She is one of the best masters of stealth in the series. She is so smart and serious when she needs to be. She is nothing like her brother, Jacob.

Shes pretty smart and sneaky, and also serious

The Contenders

11 Bayek of Siwa Bayek of Siwa

One of the beat origin stories, great voice acting, first to start a few things in the assassins creed games, great fighter, first assasin, great black character, he beat Egyptian gods, he deserves another game, and mostly because racists and b! +ches didn't want him to star in the game because he was African and he still kicked ass. Underdog killed it.

Bayek of Siwa, also known by the alias Amun, was one of the last Medjay of Egypt and the founder of the Hidden Ones alongside his wife, Aya.

12 Adéwalé
