Best Video Game Assassins

Over all of those great games, who is the most deadly assassin?

The Top Ten

1 Ezio Auditore Ezio Auditore

He deserves the top spot - lukemcnamara72

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.

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

With his life story and adventures I think he is the most loved assassin in that game

2 Agent 47 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.

Deadliest player in any game they said it best in bloodlines only contract him if you are sure you want the target dead because once he takes the job that person is dead


If 47 comes after you, you're dead. No ifs, no buts, DEAD

He is the original assassin, a murder machine, cloned in a test tube only to kill...stealth or artillery or hand-to-hand, the target is finished. Period.

3 Nina Williams (Tekken) 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 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 ...more - Toshin

Easily the most beautiful and sexiest assassin of all time

Is the best female fighter best looks, and has been able to be called the top female fighter in the Iron Fist tournament one of the most unique + deadly move sets in fighting game history in my opinion ps its that good Anna stole it

4 Corvo Attano

He is the coolest..!

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.

Beat down daud a master assassin who's been doing it for decades

Corvo can stop time. enough said.

5 Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad

His story is great, and he's strong. Ezio has more of a personality, but this guy deserves an even higher spot.
He was born in an order he didn't choose.
His father was betrayed and killed thanks to his friend's father.
His friend's father sneaks into his room and kills himself in front of it.
Best friend thought that it was HIS fault for his father's death.
His mentor betrayed the order.
He killed his mentor with his own blade.
He was claimed traitor by the order.
Regained his rightful place as the mentor.
Went away to help the brotherhood and got his youngest son killed.
Was banished from the order.
His order broke down.
Made the first ever gun.
Killed the only person who was his friend
As soon as he became the mentor, the mongols invaded.
Spent his last surviving moments to guard an artifact of infinite worth.

Syrian assassin from Assassins Creed.

Being part Syrian, I think he's the best.

Ezio is owes so much to this man. If it weren't for Altaïr the Creed would've died before Ezio's time. - TristanMatheny

Ninja assassin from the Tenchu series.

17 Kai Leng
18 The Dark Brotherhood

From the Elder Scrolls series.

How can the Dark Brotherhood NOT count? Sure, this doesn't refer to a specific assassin from the Dark Brotherhood. But the thing is, they are all trained killers. They are a massive source of fear in tamriel, and are rightfully so. They serve the god of death, Sithis, they can call souls back from the void, they killed the emperor while he was under MASS security, as well as his cousin.
They kill in a variety of ways, Fireballs, falling statues, an arrow in the neck, or their favorite, just silently slitting their victims throat in a convincing place and then slipping back in the shadows before the authorities arrive.
They feel no regret, no remorse, only pleasure at seeing someone die. It doesn't matter how difficult the contract is, they will hunt down their target or die doing so.
Dark Brotherhood forever!

He assassinates people that are around god level in strength. Definitely the strongest on this list
