Evie Frye

Evie Frye is a better assassin than her brother Jacob by all accounts. She is the one with more brain than muscle. Her strengths lie in the fact that she is a great tactician and is capable of outwitting her opponents. Physical strength is where she lacks. Sure, she takes on the Templars and Jack the Ripper (DLC) but she came out on top because of her intelligence and not her physical strength.

9. Jacob Frye

Strengths – More muscles than brain, Aggressive nature, Good with fists

Jacob Frye is the other side of the coin named Frye twins, and he is the one with more physical strength.

Jacob

Jacob possesses quite good physical strength as evidenced by his fighting style which is more of a close-quarters combat, and also by the fact that he frequently took part in wrestling matches. Jacob flexes the muscles of his arms rather than his brain, which makes him quite a strong assassin in terms of physical strength.

Altair

Altair has all the skills required for an assassin, he is agile and quick. He performed cleaner kills than any other assassin in the series and greatly utilized the Apple of Eden to gain vast knowledge. Despite all this, being physically strong is not what comes to mind when talking about this legendary assassin.

Altair was wise and smart but he was not strong. Sure, he could take on a couple of guards together in a fight, but that is nothing when compared to some other assassins on the list. Altair was truly your typical assassin.

7. Ezio Auditore da Firenze

Strengths – Dual Hidden Blades, Stealth, Apple of Eden, Master Swordsman, Adaptable

The fan favorite Ezio Auditore requires no introduction. He was a very skilled assassin who quickly rose to the rank of Master assassin and even Mentor in the Italian Brotherhood.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze

Ezio was an adaptable assassin. He was a quite skilled swordsman and made use of firearms, He also had some decent physical strength but much like Altair, he is also more of a typical assassin. Striking from shadows and utilizing stealth to his advantage.
