Majd Addin asks what and Altair shows him by stabbing him in the neck.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations[edit]

  • Well, the old hound still has a bite. [Ezio: The book you carry. Where is it?] Ah! Niccolò Polo's journal? This will do no good, not now. We have found one of the Masyaf keys already, and are closing in on the rest. [Ezio: What is in that library is not for you. Not the Templars.] Ah, you can have Altaïr's books, Ezio. We only want guidance. We only want directions... to the location of the Grand Temple. [Ezio: Grand Temple? Tell me more. Now!] [Leandros dies] [Ezio: Requiescat in pace, bastardo.]
    • Who: Leandros
  • You put too much faith in the hearts of men, Altaïr. The Templars know the truth. Humans are weak, base, and petty. [Altaïr: No. Our Creed is evidence to the contrary.] Ah... perhaps I am not wise enough to understand, but I suspect the opposite. That I am too wise to believe such rubbish.
    • Who: Haras
  • Ah, what a bitter irony. Is this the result of Suleiman's investigation? [Ezio: You collude with the Sultan's enemies. What did you expect would come of such treachery?] I blame myself. Not for treason, but hubris. I was preparing an ambush. Preparing to strike the Byzantine Templars where they felt safest. [Ezio: What proof do you have of this?] [Tarik hands Ezio a letter] See here. This will lead you to the Byzantines in Cappadocia. Destroy them if you can. [Ezio: You have done well, Tarik. Forgive me.] Protect my homeland, Assassin. Allah ashkina, redeem the honor we have lost in this fight.
    • Who: Tarik Barleti
    • Notes: Because of Tarik's supicious behavior, and his deal with Manuel Palaiologos, Ezio believed him to be a Templar. Only after lethally wounding him did Ezio discover he was plotting to defeat the Byzantine Templars from the inside.

  • Strength, Altaïr... [Altaïr: Maria...]
    • Who: Maria Thorpe
    • Notes: When she tried to stop Altaïr from murdering Swami, Swami stabbed her with his knife.
  • I can never forgive you, Altaïr. The lies you told about my family, my father. The humiliation I suffered. [Altaïr: They were not lies, Abbas. I was ten years old when your father came to see me. He was in tears, begging to be forgiven for betraying my family. Then he cut his own throat. I watched his life ebb away at my feet. I will never forget that image.] No... [Altaïr: But he was not a coward, Abbas. He reclaimed his honor.] I hope there is another life after this one. Then I will see him, and know the truth of his final days... And when it is your time, we will find you, and then there will be no doubts.
    • Who: Abbas Sofian
    • Notes: Abbas's father died by suicide. When Altaïr told Abbas the truth, the refused to accept it and developed an intense hatred for Altaïr. This eventually caused him to usurp Altaïr and murder Altaïr's son and his best friend.

    • Who: Yusuf Tazim.
    • Notes: While Yusuf doesn't die immediatly after this, this is the last time Ezio sees him alive.
  • I should have been Constantine's successor. I had so many plans. [Ezio: Your dream dies with you, Manuel. Your empire is gone.] Ah, but I am not the only one with this vision, Assassin. The dream of our Order is universal. Ottoman, Byzantine... these are only labels. Costumes and facades. Beneath these trappings, all Templars are part of the same family. [Ezio: Enough prattling. I am here for the Masyaf Key.] Then take it. Take it and seek your fortune. See if you get within one hundred leagues of that library before one of us finishes you off.
    • Who: Manuel Palaiologos
  • Soldiers! Selim is not your master! You serve the Sultan! You carry out his command alone! Where is he? Where is our Sultan! [Selim: He stands before you, brother. Father made his choice.] Selim! Stop! Please! [Selim throws Ahmet of the cliff] AH!
    • Who: Şehzade Ahmet.
  • I am home.
    • Who: Ezio Auditore da Firenze

    • Who: General Edward "The Bulldog" Braddock
    • Note: Character was killed by Hatham Kenway, as he wanted the ring on Braddock's finger, and killing him was a bonus.

  • Aye! Because they would not listen. And so... it seems... neither will you.
    • Who: Sir William Johnson, 1st Baronet
    • Note: Character was attempting to purchase land from Native Americans, who were not willing to part with it. This lead to violence, and his assassination by Connor's hands.
  • And we should live forever on castles in the sky! You wield your blade like a man, but your mouth like a child! And more will die now... because of that...
    • Who: Major John Pitcairn
    • Note: Character was the commanding officer at the battles of Lexington and Concord. He was assassinated by Connor to try and prevent the deaths of Samuel Adams and John Hancock.
  • Don't look at me like that. We're different, you and I. You're just some blind fool, who's always chasing butterflies. Whereas I'm the type of guy, who likes to have a beer in one hand, and a titty in the other. Thing is, boy... I can have what I seek. Had it, even. You? Your hands will always be empty.
    • Who: Thomas Hickey
    • Note: Character had been killed before his attempt to assassinate George Washington could come to fruition. He had no answers for Connor, his killer, and berated him with his dying breath.
  • Wait! Let the Randolph die with me. Don't take her as a prize... please... Please. I want no quarter... Just to sink with my ship.
    • Who: Admiral Nicholas Biddle
    • Note: Character had been terrorizing the citizens of Massachusetts' coastline in order to keep them in check, and to make the Patriots believe that the British had an even stronger navy. Connor put a stop to his work and allowed him his final request.
  • It's all a matter of perspective. There is no single path through life that's right and fair and does no harm. Do you truly think the Crown has no cause? No right to feel betrayed? You should know better than this, dedicated as you are to fighting Templars - who themselves see their work as just. Think on that the next time you insist your work along befits the greater good. Your enemy would beg to differ - and would not be without cause.
    • Who: Benjamin Church
    • Note: Character had betrayed both the Patriots and the Templars. Hatham Kenway teamed up with his son Connor to track Church down and kill him for his actions.
  • My passing wins you nothing, Ratonhnhaké:ton. Charles Lee rides to Monmouth to reveal the Patriots' plans. The Loyalists will destroy them. The revolution will be ended. The Crown victorious. Our people... safe.
    • Who: Kanen'tó:kon
    • Note: Character had been lied to by Charles Lee that his life long friend Connor had been corrupted and would bring ruin upon their people. Seeing no other choice, Connor was forced to kill his best friend.
  • Don't think I have any intention of caressing your cheek and saying I was wrong. I will not weep and wonder what might have been. I'm sure you understand. Still... I'm proud of you in a way. You've shown great conviction. Strength. Courage. All noble qualities. I should have killed you long ago.
    • Who: Haytham Kenway
    • Note: Character had ambushed his son Connor in the place where he believed Charles Lee, his next target, to be. After a brief fight, Haytham was strangling Connor on the ground, and didn't notice as his son's hand went to stab him in the neck.
  • Why do you persist? You put us down. We rise again. You end one plot - we forge another. You try so hard. But it always ends the same. Those who know you think you're mad and this is why... Even those men you sought to save have turned their backs on you. Yet you fight. You resist. Why?
    • Who: Charles Lee
    • Note: Character had been chased into a burning boat by Connor, which lead to them falling through the floor and Connor having a stake through his side. These words to Connor were not necessarily his last, but he does not speak again on screen until his death.
  • Connor, if you are reading this, I have failed to say goodbye as I wanted, but the time never seemed appropriate. I leave this land and all of its resources to you. I trust you now know this place has become something of great significance. A community to serve as an example of what this would-be-nation could become. But the larger and stronger it grows, the more fragile and difficult to defend it becomes. I hope your friends who are birthing this infant country understand this truth. Your unwavering tenacity and honesty have burdened you with responsibility far greater than any one man should bear. But you, if anyone, are capable. You have given an old man hope that all is not lost, and for that I thank you. I ask that you lay my bones to rest on the hill overlooking the water, there is no other place on this earth I'd rather be. I am grateful to have met you, knowing you will guide this land and these people to a better future. Yours in brotherhood, Achilles.
    • Who: Achilles Davenport
    • Note: Character had passed away in his sleep, and the words were a final letter to his adopted son Connor.
  • You know it's true. It's already started, I need to do this now. So go! GO!
    • Who: Desmond Miles
    • Note: Character saved the world from a solar flare, at the cost of releasing a First Civilization being who would see the enslavement of all of humanity, and of his own life.

Assassin's Creed IV[edit]

  • Is petty larceny the extent of your ambition? Have you no mind to comprehend the scope of ours? All the empires on Earth, abolished! A free and opened world, without parasites like you! (May the Hell you find be of your own making).

  • The Templars is our family. Where's yours?
    • Who: John Cockram
    • Note: Cockram was (theoretically) assassinated alongside Josiah Burgess.
  • No! These Templars are different. I wish you could see that. But if you continue on your present course, you'll find you're the only one walking it! With the gallows at its end.
    • Who: Benjamin Hornigold
    • Note: Said after Edward Kenway accused Hornigold of "throwing in with the very kind we once hated".
  • Here at the edge of a blade, I find a friend in you at last! Príncipe, you mad bastard. Our best sources say Príncipe...
    • Who: Woodes Rogers
    • Note: Rogers eventually recovers from his wounds; his final words reflect on his hope that Edward Kenway will help the Templars find Bartholomew Roberts, of who's location Rogers reveals to Kenway.
  • Destroy this body, Edward. The Templars... if they take me...

    • Note: Roberts bewildered Edward Kenway with talk of the Temple and Aita. He requested his burial at sea, to which Kenway obliged.

Assassin's Creed IV: Freedom Cry[edit]

  • Help! Help! [Adéwalé: Who will come to your rescue? Your slaves? The overseers who follow your orders? Pathetic. What kind of man does not fight for himself?] Why-- [Adéwalé: I have killed many men on principle, but never have I wanted one to suffer as much as you - to understand what it is to gasp and beg for your life, like the innocents you drowned.] You mean those slaves? That ship? But they are not even human! Without the discipline and guidance of their masters, they turn to rebellion, murder, like you. [Adéwalé: I only wish that were true.]
    • Who: Marquis de Fayet

Assassin's Creed Rogue[edit]

  • Ah, ah... but my plans are already in motion. Even leading you here... has given my allies time to escape. Thank you for... making my end a quick one.
    • Who: Lawrence Washington
    • Note: Shay P. Cormac was regretful after assassinating Washington, as the man was not a threat and was dying from sickness anyways.

    • Who: Le Chasseur

    • Who: Liam O'Brien

    • Note: Dorian is the father of Arno, the main character of Assassin's Creed Unity.
  • Uphold the principles of our Order, and all for that for which we stand. Never share our secrets nor divulge the true nature of our work. Do so until death -- whatever the cost. This is my new creed. I am Shay Patrick Cormac. Templar of the Colonial… of the American Rite. I am an older man now, and perhaps wiser. A war and a revolution have ended, and another is about to begin. May the Father of Understanding guide us all.
