Best Assassin's Creed Villains

DarkLord

The Top Ten

1 Rodrigo Borgia Rodrigo Borgia

Rodrigo was so calculating. He even knew when Ezio would show up. Definitely no. 1, not your average video game villain.

There's really no question that it's Rodrigo Borgia. Not only the best AC villain, but also the biggest villain from the series in real history. - Mann0802

What's scarier then a man who uses religion to his selfish gain.

He’s the best villain. He got Ezio’s father and two brothers executed, he planned the assassinations of both Juliano Medici and the doge of Venice, he became the pope just to gain access to the staff (one of the pieces of Eden) and the vault. He was just brutal and evil in general. He even killed one of his main allies for failing him

2 Cesare Borgia

He killed his father he killed Mario he had monteriggioni attacked he kidnapped Sofia and he thought he was indestructible "no man can murder me" best line in the game.

If Cross' role in the consoles had been as compelling as it was in the comics, his place as a top villain would have ben solidified.

Captain general of the papal army with powerful templar allies

A disgrace to the order. Nonetheless, he was awesome. - FasterThanrandom

3 Haytham Kenway

Best Templar and best character in AC games

Haytham was a very good character to play as but he was a very bad father he is a pretty cool player.

He’s just cool

How is Haytham not higher on this list? He's such an interesting character, and proved that Templars didn't have to be mustache twirling caricatures of villains.

4 Robert De Sable

Well, Haytham is not a villian to me.
Robert, Robert, Robert oh MY GOD! I HATE this guy, but he had a funny accent laugh out loud.
Cesare was flat and weak, his father was A... well... an old dude.
Ahmet was boring.
Vidic was a mad scientist.
Cross was a psychopath... that's all.

5 Daniel Cross

A really compeling villain in the comics. But the game didn't develop him at all.

6 Prince Ahmet
7 Warren Vidic
8 Tarik Barleti

Tarik wasn't a templar he was secretly plotting against the templars and was captain of the janissiaries the templars were byzantines so he was their enemy

Not a bad guy

9 Manuel Palaiologos
10 Shahkulu

Such a badass

A Templar henchman that pulled Ezio out of an assassination sync and killed a bunch of peasants for no damn reason. He does not talk at all. Could be a mute.

The Contenders

11 Crawford Starrick

He actually cares about his allies, he's shown grieving about a loss. A quality that makes him more human than most other buildings in the series.

How is he this low!?!?!

12 Charles Lee Charles Lee

Almost from the start of assassin's creed 3, Charles Lee is the guy that Connor looks for for years in order to kill him and take revenge for destroying his village and his mother's lost

He's just so cool and that accent

13 Shay Cormac

He has to be number one. He alone destroyed the whole Colonial brotherood

His story was very inspiring and I feel very thankful that ubisoft did this and now I see the templars to have respect and decency

Most complex character of the Templars.

Best of the best

15 Bartholomew Roberts

He is the only adversary in the series who did not belong to neither side and were also a big threat to both the assassin's & the templar. He was a loose cannon and that made him stand out from the other villains and that made him more interesting and memorable.

16 Al Mualim

Definitely one of the best villains beside Haytham

How is he not higher?

The best twist in the series

Altairs and the assassin's master, best twist in the series.

17 Thomas Hickey

A man who ironically didn't give a damn adout the Templar ideology.

18 Deimos
19 Kleon the Everyman
20 John Pitcairn
21 Silas Thatcher
22 Julien du Casse
23 Carlo Grimaldi

Though he's a coward, he did poison that one Doge in Italy and succeeded. He adapts well to his plans, too.

24 Jean-Jacques Blaise d'Abbadie
25 George Davidson
26 Madeleine de L'Isle
27 Maxwell Roth
28 Uberto Alberti Uberto Alberti
29 William de Montferrat
30 Vieri de' Pazzi

He was a great villain in the AC 2 game!

31 William Johnson
32 Benjamin Church
33 Edward "The Bulldog" Braddock
34 Vali cel Tradat
35 Juno
36 Nicholas Biddle
37 Octavian de Valois
38 Juan Borgia
39 Francois-Thomas Germain

Definitely one of the hardest to kill

40 Armand Bouchart
41 Jack The Ripper

Definitely the most mysterious

42 Majd Addin
43 Baptiste
44 Rafael Joaquín de Ferrer
45 Diego Vázquez
