Most Brutal to least Brutal...

Most Reasonable to least Reasonable...

and

Most Attractive to least Attractive! :rolleyes:

(you don't have to answer all of them. Just whichever one you like)

---

I say Altair is the most Brutal by far. He kills all messengers he meets and shows no mercy. Connor's fighting style is brutal but he doesn't like to kill unless neccessary. Edward is sort of similar.

I haven't played far enough in AC1 or AC2-ACR so I can't exactly make my own lists quite yet. I just wanted to hear your thoughts. :D

Most brutal: Connor, Ezio, Edward.
- Connor's fighting style was all out brutality, but some of Ezio's killing animations were almost stomach turning - especially in ACR. Edward also has some brutal animations, but I perceived him to be just a little more tame.

Most reasonable to least reasonable: Connor, Ezio, Edward.
- All the Assassins are brash in a way, especially Edward given his piratical ways. Regarding Connor and Ezio, the assassin life in itself is inherently unreasonable but Connor never harmed an innocent and only showed contempt for Charles Lee, he was driven by what he thought was justice to dispose of the other Templar's. Ezio was driven by personal revenge, but later became older and more sensible. I'd have picked him, but I remembered his decision to let the citizens of Cappadocia choke to death.

Most attractive to least attractive: Connor, Ezio, Edward
- I'm a straight guy, so my opinion does not matter here. I mean, I can still tell if a guy's good looking, I just don't want to **** them. I guess Connor's the most handsome?...I dunno. Edward was really weird looking to me for some reason. Don't really have an opinion on Ezio, except that in ACR he's an old ugly bastard.

EDIT: I'm a terrible human that forgot Altair! :|

Brutal: 1.... hm, Connor. But ACR Ezio has some really brutal killing moves, too. Followed by Edward and then Altair.

Reasonable: ACB Ezio? Older Altair? Not sure about this one.

Attractive: 1. Edward, 2. Ezio, 3. Altair, 4.Connor

Although I feel Connor is the most attractive, there are definitely times when he looks more potato than human I will admit. And, I hope this isn't pedophile-y, as I am only 19, but still...

Connor was ADORABLE as a 15-16 year old. Like, honest to God. I am not a "fangirl" of anything, whether it be AC characters or anything else..but...

Huh... I can't bothered editing so the mistake stays.

Most Brutal to least brutal: Ezio > Altair > Edward > Connor
Never really understood when people say that Connor is the most brutal when Ezio pierces a guy's face, friggin spins the sword and completely severs the back bone then takes it out. Altair's brutality lies in his devotion to his mission and his cold attitude by killing messengers. Edward shares the same flashy mentality of Ezio from ACR, there are some kills that just seem completely unnecessary but his brutality in combat is contrasted by his rationality when dealing with conflict, opting to rather avoid spilling blood if possible. Connor's kills were always quick and smooth while that was contrasted with his calm and collected demeanor and kind handling of animals.

Most reasonable to lest reasonable: (I don't really understand this one)

Most attractive: (Never really thought about it)

1 Brutal????? Connor in terms of fighting seems to me like a native american version of Kratos haha. 2 Edward, Ezio and finally Altair., However to Altair, dead men tell no tales......literally .
2 Reasonable????? Old Altair, Connor, then Ezio, Edward and... YES, young Altair!! I mean, the guy did not spare not even the less important messengers.
3 Attractive??? Well, I am straight hehe, however would like to look like Connor and Edward without shirt though.

The new sword kills in ACR are so ridiculous I don't consider them canon. Every time I played ACR, I swapped out the sword for an axe as soon as I could and promptly embedded it in someone's skull so I could get rid of it permanently. I used only the knife and hidden blades. Overall, Ezio's style is pretty graceful and elegant; the ACR sword moves are totally contradictory to that, they're like some Mortal Kombat crap.

Anyway...

Brutality- Altair, Connor, Edward, Ezio
Reasonable- Altair, Ezio, Connor, Edward
Attractive- Connor, Ezio, Edward, Altair

This guy gets it

Connor and Altair had a "get the job done" attitude....Ezio had a more flamboyant, showy, elaborate style which was far more ruthless and brutal. It was extremely savage and unnecessarily violent.

Have you SEEN the hookblade finishers in ACR?

Ezio has issues

No gameplay/narrative disconnect for me. Ezio always was a bit of bastard and an elaborate fighter. Besides, the dude was always about sending a message...the most Assassiny thing about him - understanding the impact of terrorism

Lol..no

Again, thats relatively tame compared to Ezio's style. Connor is seen stabbing and slicing....however there are no ruthless flourishes to the kills...there is no unnecessary violence. Connor simply kills.

Ezio's kills on the other hand...they are needlessly elaborate and ruthless. Which is why he is more brutal (And awesome)

I love how all the guys are all "no homo" trying to figure out which assassin is the most attractive while completely forgetting about Aveline. :D


Most brutal: Ezio. He seems to take unnecessary joy in killing whereas the other assassins are all about efficiency.

Most reasonable: Ezio again. He seemed to learn the most in his lifetime. Even though he displayed unnecessary brutality at times, he also became more compassionate and wise with age. Alta´r was wise too, but became obsessed with the Apple which probably affected his judgment somewhat. Connor was a bit too na´ve. Edward only learned something at the very end of the game.

Most handsome: Desmond. He was also the face for both Alta´r and Ezio until ACR.

05-23-2014, 07:36 PM
Ummm.... I honestly think Connor and Ezio are tied for most brutal.

Because I mean shoving a Gun through a man just to shoot another man.. is pretty freaking brutal but as the same time Ezio does a spin and places an Axe in your head. I guess it's all in execution I suppose. Ezio in general was more flamboyant about it all, while Connor kills while a bit conflicting with his nature were just tomahawk chop is my deathblow. Boom done on to the next one. So therefore the both get the top vote for Brutal! Falling behind them would be Altair and then Edward.

Most Attractive, Drum roll.... CONNOR WITH A MOHAWK! WoO! I'm sure no one saw that coming right? haha. But really, I agree with what some others said around here there are moments where connor does look "awkward" and others where it's like HOLY GUACAMOLE! (lame) lol. Next I would say Ezio, then I'm not sure but I thought Edward was going to be really attractive especially looking at the CGI trailers but in game he looked different not bad not good, just different so He would be next (Dem Kenways) and Last would be Altair.

Brutality:

Ezio > Edward > Altair = Connor

Ezio's finishers in Revelations...yeikes. I really like what M had to say about Connor's kills.

Reasonable:

I'm not exactly sure what it is you're asking here, but I'm going to rank them in order of their ability to listen to reason/the other side.

Altair > Connor > Ezio > Edward

I'd say Altair and Connor feel similar amounts of doubts during their White Room sequences, but I feel that Altair is more honest with himself about those doubts. Connor's resolve is very strong. Ezio never changes his mind, but that's because he's almost always portrayed in the morally right light, while the Templars are always evil. Edward eventually does learn, but the cost is quite large.
