Assassin's Creed: Every Major Villain RANKED

Which Templar was the baddest of them all?


Like all long-running gaming franchises, Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series, which is due to get its 12th mainline instalment with Valhalla later this year, has had its fair share of highs and lows.

Taking us to a range of locations throughout history, all of which have been recreated in stunning detail thanks to scrupulous research, the Assassin's Creed games have allowed millions of players to live out some of their favourite historical fantasies.

Whether it's sliding down the Great Pyramids Of Giza in Assassin's Creed: Origins, running across the Colosseum in Brotherhood, or sailing your own pirate ship in Black Flag, the series is home to some of the best gaming moments of the last decade.

Fronting the series has been its roster of Assassin protagonists. Though not all of them have been as charismatic as the likes of Edward Kenway, the Frye Twins, and Ezio (we mean you, Connor and Arno), they're nevertheless our gateway to experiencing the series' worlds and action.

Of course, it wouldn't be an Assassin's Creed game without some Templars to stab with our hidden blades. But which of the collection of the series' many main villain was the biggest bad of them all?
