Best Video Game Assassins

Over all of those great games, who is the most deadly assassin?
The Top Ten
1 Ezio Auditore

Come on, hidden blades, hook blades, bombs, parachutes, throwing knives. How can you NOT like Ezio? He is a total badass, and is the greatest video game character EVER.

DEFINITELY deserves top spot! He was my favorite assassin for a large portion of my life until I met hk-47 but he still deserves top.

The Italian assassin from Assassins Creed 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations.

2 Agent 47 Agent 47 is a fictional character and main protagonist of the Hitman video game series released by IO Interactive and Square Enix Europe.

He is THE Silent Assassin. Give him a contract, and the target is dead. Nobody stands in his way.

Broke his back.
Rose from his deathbed.
Killed his only friend.
Has his own movie.

Agent 47 has been around for a little while, but still could kick Ezio's ass.

3 Nina Williams (Tekken) Nina Williams is a fictional character from Namco's Tekken fighting game series. A cold-blooded Irish professional assassin, Nina made her first appearance in Tekken, the original game in the series She is one of four playable characters to appear in all main installments in the series and the only... read more

In my opinion, Nina Williams is the best assassin.

In the Tekken series she is not the main protagonist, however she is one of the few characters to be in the roster since the beginning of the saga. She is absolutely awesome, always considered as a top tier character she plays an always increasing role in the story line. She must be the only minor character from a fighting game license to star in her own spin-off (Death by Degrees).

She is a proficient killer with lethal abilities, able to use every kind of weapon from a basic knife, any blade to the most sophisticated sniper rifle. In a hand to hand combat, her absolute mastery of aikido and koppo confer to her all the skills to finish the job. I enjoy her game-play, she is fast and has got a very complete move set, flash kicks, huge slaps, nasty tricks and constrictive chain throws...

Nina's got a sculpural body shape. Hourglass figure, astonishing curves, long chiseled legs, voluptuous breast.. She has just the perfect body. I love her long blond hair, her icy deep steely blue eyes.

I love her charisma, she is cold, stoic and merciless. Nina is a true femme fatale, she is frosty, mighty, haughty yet seductive. I love her voice which is both harsh and flirty. Her singular way to tease those who get on her way is pure sex'appeal. I love the way she dresses, her glamorous lip-stick, her purple tight fitting outfit... I love her swaying walk and how she stilk her sharp heels on her defeated opponent... she is so hot. Nina is both the most attractive woman and the deadliest weapon, she is sensual and lethal at the same time and arouses our shamefullest urges (Eros & Thanatos) as nobody else... she is pure sex'appeal.

4 Corvo Attano

Even without his powers, Corvo is able to travel across an entire city teeming with guards without a single person seeing him. Even his targets never know if he's there.

A guy who can go through the entire game without killing a single person. But seriously though I love him

Assassin? I don't remember him killing anyone...

5 Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad
