Desmond without much trouble. He is almost superhuman, while nothing shows Leon being above peak human. Not only that, Desmond has synchronized with 3 extremely skilled assassins giving him a portion of their skill, if not all.

Does Desmond still have eagle eye? If he does then he has a enormous advantage and greater experience than Leon with the Animus.

@lucano: Everything Leon fights is far stronger than him yet he has no trouble taking them down

Leon's stats are nearing super soldier level. Can you show me something from Desmond that says he'd have the reflexes to replicate RE4's laser room?

@artyom: Three. Altair, Ezio, and Connor. I haven't played AC4 but I'm pretty sure he didn't sync with Edward and definitely not Aveline.

Oh, and Leon wins here.

Is this a head-on fight, or like hunting between the two?

Leaning towards Leon in a knife to knife fight and firefight. In a hunt, I see Desmond winning that...

It's been a while since I played both series, but I think that's how it would go...

If Leon could beat a giant trex parasite zombie/ fly thing, I think he could take on Desmond.

Saying Desmond has experience cause of the animus is like saying Neo has kung fu skills/feats cause/out of the matrix, can't see how much eagle eye helps either, Leon takes this.

Leon for the win and for the kill.

@dimitridkatsis:

Except that was the entire point of AC2: for him to receive the experience of Ezio to be able to fight the Templars.

Leon without much difficulty. He has taken down much stronger foes.

Leon. Desmond didn't actually do much with all the skills of his ancestors. He definitely had the potential to beat Leon based on the feats THEY had. But without feats of his own Leon wins here. The guy has killed things all the assassins together would have trouble with.

@dajhonmccloud: Leon has better everything than Desmond not even debateable. Desmond learned from the Animus but Leon survived and beaten things none of the assassins could even dream of leon's training and feats are very underrated here

- Knife fight : Desmond because of all the experience from his ancestors, Leon is skilled but no where near as good.

- Pistol duel : Leo, because of his experience against all the monstrosities he fought.

- Hunt : Desmond rather easily, thanks to his stealth, agility and EV

@kgb725: I See what you mean but desmond has 3 of the most dangerous men in Assassin creed universe inside him, and how does skill Just win over that. i mean Maybe leon does win, But dont you think he's gonna have to fight for his life before it is all over cause desmond has skills so does leon. And plus fighting 1 of the assassin is pretty dangerous but leon has to handle 3 in 1, and Kwonledge plays a role hear to, Like predicting what leon will try after they encounter each other.

@aeon-rising: Desmond doesn't have any feats simply because he isn't the main character, he more of a supporting character than anything, honestlu imo he's a plot device. With the logic you're using a red lantern hulk would be just as strong as any other lantern.

@dajhonmccloud: Desmond doesn't have the skill nor the smarts to predict what Leon will do. Desmond has no feats only theoretical skill he may have that knowledge in his head but who knows maybe he doesnt have the coordination in an actual fight with a skilled opponent. Neo could barely handle Morpheus and he had absorbed knowledge of kung fu and other stuff

Last time I checked you needed some kind of combat feat to win a thread against someone with many of them. No way Desmond wins this just because he theoretically could fight on the same level.

@aeon-rising: Not on the same level, but above it. I'd be lying if I said you were wrong, but not if I said it was completely correct. Don't really need feata, simply something to contrast to. Like I said before,Red Lantern Hulk has come up in the battle forums before, but he has absolutely 0 feats. However people debate using feats of hulk and red lantern power ring. Same goes for Desmond, he is debated by using feats of Altair, Ezio, and Connor. Do I really have to show you the many battle threads of Desmond for you to understand this?

There is more to winning a fight then knowing how. Desmond never tested his own endurance or heart (Or willingness to methodically hunt and kill). It was never his hand getting dirty. He is a inexperienced assassin with insane potential. He is also not a perfect duplicate of his ancestors due to the negative effects of the Animus. I get what your saying but his skills (Or his ancestors skills rather) won't overcome Leon without constant field tests and missions under his belt to make him the weapon he could potentially be. Leon is a battle tested agent proficient in modern weapons. Way out of Desmond's (As of the end of AC3) depth.

@aeon-rising: Well he did undergo assassin training in the farm and before he left the valley. He also was able to infiltrate abstergo successfully, encountering weapons far more efficient than what Connor or Edward delt with. Best way for me to explain it, if you've watched Matrix, you'll know that they can learn ANYTHING just by having it downloaded into their minds(I think download is the term, anyways not the point) without any experience at all. Through the bleeding effect Desmond indeed DOES gain the experience of his ancestors, and with their experience comes their skill. So in all reality he doesn't really need any field tests or anything, he already has years and years of it from the bleeding effect.
