Over the course of the Assassin’s Creed assortment now we have carried out as an unlimited variety of hooded killers, from pirates to revolutionaries. And although some are memorable, likeable characters, others might as properly be mannequins stuffed into elaborate costumes. So that is every most necessary assortment protagonist (minus the DLC characters, because of we might be proper right here all day) ranked from worst to best.

Ratonhnhaké:ton

Recreation Assassin’s Creed III
Carried out by Noah Watts

This man may need been one of many very important fascinating Assassin’s Creed protagonists. He’s the son of a Native American woman and an English man—born all through a time of good stress between these two cultures—and carried out an full of life operate throughout the American Revolution. Nonetheless the writers forgot to supply him one important issue: a personality. Connor (to utilize his less complicated to spell alias) is a really boring, earnest man, who sulks, pouts, and complains his method by means of what will also be the worst Assassin’s Creed sport.

Arno Victor Dorian

Recreation Assassin’s Creed Unity
Carried out by Dan Jeannotte

One different revolutionary, this time of the French choice. Arno is born proper right into a wealthy family in Versailles, nonetheless turns into an assassin after a stint throughout the Bastille, a famously brutal Parisian jail. As soon as extra, like Connor, he has an fascinating backstory. And I like how utterly totally different he is from most Assassin’s Creed protagonists: particularly being a bit additional unfastened with all the Creed issue. He begins out cocky and kinda likeable, nonetheless then he slips on the hood and all that character steadily drains away over the course of the game.

Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad

Recreation Assassin’s Creed
Carried out by Philip Shahbaz

The distinctive assassin. The beginning of the legend. And, sadly, certainly one of many dullest heroes throughout the assortment. Altaïr seems cool, nonetheless there may be not so much occurring beneath the hood. Opinions talked about how boring he was, which inspired Ubisoft to introduce a very utterly totally different character throughout the second sport. Nonetheless additional on him later. There isn’t any denying Altaïr’s significance throughout the assortment’ mythology, nonetheless would not it have killed him to crack a joke infrequently?

Aya of Alexandria

Recreation Assassin’s Creed Origins
Carried out by Alix Wilton Regan

Minor spoilers for Assassin’s Creed Origins.

Aya is the the second playable character in Origins, although husband Bayek will get additional show display time. She’s sturdy and spirited, with an endearing notion in Cleopatra’s means to do correct by Egypt. Nonetheless, and this might probably be because of we don’t spend so much time alongside along with her, her character under no circumstances really shines by means of. I like how her allegiance to Cleopatra drives a wedge between her and Bayek, nonetheless her pushed single-mindedness moreover makes her a bit one-note.

Shay Patrick Cormac

Recreation Assassin’s Creed Rogue
Carried out by Steven Piovesan

Shay is an fascinating addition to the pantheon of Creed heroes because of he isn’t an Assassin the least bit, nonetheless a Templar. However, even though he’s working for ‘the unhealthy guys’ (I personally need the Templars to the preachy Assassins), his former life as an Assassin himself nonetheless haunts him. He’s highly effective and ruthless, nonetheless refuses to prey on the weak and generally displays mercy. He’s nuanced and flawed and we might like additional lead characters like him throughout the assortment.

Evie Frye

Recreation Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
Carried out by Victoria Atkin

Evie is additional expert and straight-laced than her wild brother Jacob, nonetheless she wouldn’t fall into the lure of Altaïr and Connor by letting her devotion to the Creed define her. There are glimmers of humour and humanity beneath Evie’s onerous exterior, and she or he genuinely cares for her brother no matter spending quite a lot of the game scolding his recklessness. Succesful, smart, and passionate, she’s one of many very important admirably devoted leads throughout the assortment.

Aveline de Grandpré

Recreation Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation
Carried out by Amber Goldfarb

Rising up surrounded by wealth and privilege in New Orleans, Aveline witnessed the hypocrisy and injustice of slavery first-hand, shaping her angle to life and finally leading to her changing into a member of the Assassins. Relegated to an Assassin’s Creed III spin-off—however infinitely additional fascinating than boring earlier Connor—her guilt over being freed and launched into wealth whereas her mates suffered in slavery affords her character a sharp edge.

Jacob Frye

Recreation Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
Carried out by Paul Amos

Jacob is cocky, rebellious, witty, and a bit of little bit of a prick. And that’s the reason he’s certainly one of many larger Assassin’s Creed heroes, because of he seems to actually be having satisfying. He’s under no circumstances happier than when he’s brawling on the cobbled streets of London collectively along with his brass knuckles. Nonetheless he’s moreover a fierce defender of the downtrodden, which leads to him following his father and embracing the Creed, even though early throughout the sport it’s the very very last thing on his ideas.

Alexios

The assassins of Assassin's Creed, ranked from worst to best

Recreation Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Carried out by Michael Antonakos

Odyssey is notable for supplying you with the selection to play as a male or female character. The dialogue is comparable, nonetheless the provision of each performer might be very utterly totally different. Alexios is properly acted, nonetheless performs it far too straight, sounding like a dozen totally different gruff videogame heroes. He was on a regular basis going to wrestle in a set already heaving with vital, bearded males, and this solely highlights how considerably higher, and further charismatic, his female counterpart is.

Bayek of Siwa

Recreation Assassin’s Creed Origins
Carried out by Abubakar Salim

The newest Creed hero and among the many finest. Origins is prepared throughout the twilight years of Historic Egypt as Greek and Roman custom sweeps in, nonetheless Bayek is an individual of the earlier world. He deeply respects customized and religion, nonetheless could also be charming and humorous too. His weak spot for youths in trouble, attributable to the lack of lifetime of his son, makes his darkish side notably shadowy. Nonetheless his innate good nature and pure instinct to help the weak on a regular basis shines brighter.

Edward James Kenway

Recreation Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
Carried out by Matt Ryan

This charismatic Welsh pirate is, a minimal of throughout the early phases of the game, additional concerned with fame, gold, and glory than following the Creed. And it’s this angle, alongside collectively along with his bawdy sense of humour, that makes his character so infectious. He deepens and grows as a person all via his Caribbean journey, finally renouncing his earlier life to show into an Assassin, nonetheless he under no circumstances loses his love of swashbuckling on the extreme seas.

Haytham Kenway

Recreation Assassin’s Creed III
Carried out by Adrian Hough

Arguably the worst Assassin’s Creed choices certainly one of many best lead characters. You begin the third sport as Haytham, and he immediately proves to be a complicated, conflicted character; larger than the villain his allegiance to the Templars suggests he might be. There’s good in him—although it’s often fogged by the work he does—and his Bond-like enchantment and ruthlessness make him a pleasure to play as. Then Connor displays up and spoils the entire satisfying.

Kassandra

Recreation Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Carried out by Melissanthi Mahut

Even if she has all of the similar traces as Alexios, Kassandra appears like she’s having far more satisfying on her quest. She’s fiery and charismatic, highly effective and charming, and among the many finest heroes throughout the assortment thus far. A Spartan mercenary on an odyssey of discovery, she finds herself tangling with a sinister cult and attempting to hint down her starting dad and mother. Voice actor Melissanthi Mahut affords her considerably of Ezio’s mischievous enchantment.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze

Recreation Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood, Revelations
Carried out by Roger Craig Smith

Successfully, clearly. Ezio has been a fan favourite since his very first look, and he had the luxury of 1 different two full-size video video games to develop as a character. So maybe that’s an unfair profit, nonetheless even in Assassin’s Creed II he was a breath of up to date air. Witty, charming, and mischievous, Ezio is a character who buzzes with life and character, from his youthful days brawling on the streets of Florence to Revelations’ shifting remaining scenes.
