Best Assassin's Creed Villains


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

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

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.

3 Haytham Kenway

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.

The father and mortal enemy of Connor, plus you get to actually play as him.

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

Haytham is cool the father better than son best tempalr

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

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.

Such a badass

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

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

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

14 Dante Moro
15 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.

16 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.

17 Thomas Hickey

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

18 John Pitcairn
19 Silas Thatcher
20 Julien du Casse
21 Carlo Grimaldi

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

22 George Davidson
23 Madeleine de L'Isle
24 Maxwell Roth
25 Uberto Alberti Uberto Alberti
26 William de Montferrat
27 Vieri de' Pazzi

He was a great villain in the AC 2 game!

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

Definitely one of the hardest to kill

37 Armand Bouchart
38 Jack The Ripper

Definitely the most mysterious

39 Majd Addin
40 Jean-Jacques Blaise d'Abbadie
41 Baptiste
42 Rafael Joaquín de Ferrer
43 Diego Vázquez
