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.

Best character's development and he's starring in my favorite games of the series (AC2 and ACB).
Plus at some point - I don't remember if in Brotherhood or Revelations - they clearly state that Ezio was the most skilled AssassinMaster due his superhumanonce in the entire history of the Guild agility (something that evidently none could match since him).

2 Connor (Ratonhnhaké:ton)

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...

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.

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.

He is the most devoted and skilled along with being themost physically capable

3 Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad

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

He's the original assassin

He is the creed

Altair used 100% pure hand to hand combat skill without the use of Guns or Technology

4 Edward Kenway

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

From Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Ezio is really over rated. I know that he is better than kenway but still kenway deserves the second place. A great pirate and as assassin. H's character was awesome. His fighting style pure badass. Also he had the most character developement

5 Desmond Miles

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

6 Shay Cormac

He has beautiful adventures and an enemy of assassins

He pulled the wool over the assassins eyes

7 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!

Arno is the fastest and the best at parkour, and he has an amazing personality.

9 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 Aveline de Grandpré

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

12 Haytham Kenway

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

Don't worry young ha than we will get some chocolate at whites after the show

15 Niccolò Machiavelli
16 John from IT

The moustache is real

17 Israel Putnam

He has a nice pistol

18 James Kidd

The windmill of lies

19 Mario Auditore

Ezio is nothing without Mario he taught him skills to fight told him of his heritage he is 65 by brotherhood but is a better climber than janissary the forgotten one

20 Giovanni Auditore

Ezio's father I cried when he died and when he died his son called him fatheeer!
