Throughout the adventures of our favourite assassin’s (and mercenaries) in the Assassin’s Creed series, there have been quite a lot of bosses that made our lives incredibly difficult but, after defeating them, made us feel an insanely good sense of satisfaction that left a smile on our faces and a lot of good loot in our pockets! Here is our list of top 10 bosses in the Assassin’s Creed games!
Starting off at number 10 is Haytham Kenway in Assassin’s Creed III!
This was the battle between Haytham and Connor Kenway, which just so happen to be father and son! Sure, it may not have been the best battle in the series, especially since it was riddled with some annoyances but, it was still quite an impactful one, not just for the context of it but because of the fact that the players have played as Haytham Kenway for quite a good chunk of the game.
At number 9 is Francois Thomas Germain in Assassin’s Creed Unity!
Germain could honestly be considered a psychopath (the reason why he was exiled from the Templars) so, naturally, he is the last boss fight of the game and one that isn’t easy at all! Most of the “fight” is spent with the protagonist hiding. Germain is a twisted person so, perhaps it was for the best!
At number 8 is Cesare Borgia in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood!
Unlike many of the villains in the Assassin’s Creed series, this one was more annoying than anything but, perhaps that’s what made his assassination so satisfying. Being such an important figure, it was only natural that he would be surrounded by guards protecting his every move and, it was obviously up to the player to get rid of them! It was quite tricky to do this but, once you go to Cesare himself, he was pretty easy to kill yet, regardless of how easy it was, it was still insanely satisfying to do so!
At number 7 is the Minotaur in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey!
This is one of the many mythical creatures found in the greek world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey but one that definitely demanded respect with every swing of his massive axe! This was a pretty tough battle with a move set that was actually quite frightening but, completely worth the fight because, after defeating the Minotaur, the loot you’d acquire was incredibly good.
At number 6 is Al Mualim in Assassin’s Creed 1!
We’ve all seen this kind of battle happening in several different video games and even movies but, it doesn’t make it any less difficult and frightening! In the first Assassin’s Creed game, there was this guy named Al Mualim who, just so happens to be the Assassin Brotherhood mentor, however, he fell victim to the irresistible power of the apple of Eden and, he eventually became corrupted by it. By controlling Altair’s movements and creating copies of him to fight him with, this was a moment that is quite unforgettable in the series.
At number 5 is Jack The Ripper in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate: Jack The Ripper DLC!
Honestly, this boss battle had to be on this list because it is with the historical figure of Jack The Ripper, the murderer who terrorized the streets of London and that, ultimately, was never caught, at least in real life! Assassin’s Creed Syndicate twisted the Jack The Ripper story a little bit (as it should, after all, it is a videogame, not a historical recreation) and made him a former member of the Assassins Brotherhood! Obviously, it is up to Eve and Jacob Frye to find where and who he is, in order to stop him.
At number 4 is the Giant Snake in Assassin’s Creed Origins!
This was a boss that was insanely unexpected by pretty much anyone who was playing the videogame while seeming quite familiar with the massive colossus present in Shadow Of The Colossus! This massive snake was a pain to beat, going in and out of the water and attacking Bayek at every chance but it made for a very memorable moment in the game!
At number 3 is El Impoluto in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
! There are not a lot of boss battles set on the sea in the Assassin’s Creed series but, when you come across this ship, you instantly understand why we’re very grateful there aren’t! This ship was insanely difficult to beat and, once it engaged with you once, it would not let your ship go without destroying it, following you wherever you went, no matter the distance!
At number 2 is Lucius Septimius in Assassin’s Creed Origins!
This boss is so high on the list, not just for how difficult it was (which was quite a bit) but for the importance, he has in the story. As we know from the beginning, Bayek’s son was killed and, once Aya finally tracks down the killer, we find out that it is actually a Roman Legionnaire named Lucius Septimius. This is not only a difficult battle but one that feels incredibly satisfying when we finally get to kill the man that killed Bayek’s son!
Finally, at number 1 is Medusa in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey!
No mythical being in Greek mythology is more iconic then Medusa, the woman with serpents on her head that can turn people into stone by just looking at them! Seeing that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is set in Greece, the developers decided that it would be pretty cool to fight Medusa and oh boy were they right! It is a very challenging battle (as expected) but one that will remain in our memories for how epic and legendary it was!
