@foxdie: Except they aren't boxing and Connor has shown nothing exceptional in strength department outside of gameplay mechanics. Speed and skill with weaponry will be the major factor here even if we acknowledge his "strength feats".
@foxdie: Every Assassin is just as fast as Connor if not faster. Can't say I'm sure about strength, but I feel like Connor is overhyped for that as gameplay mechanics don't show how strong or fast a character is, in fact they don't show anything at all. If they did, Arno would be some kind of "leg-day-freak" considering he can jump across buildings farther than any Assassin often to superhuman levels, Ezio/Edward/Shay could streak armies of enemies and whatnot. Him "dodging" bullets from armies isn't even a feat, because literally any other Assassin can run cover to cover while the enemy army reloads. Being aggressive against a skilled assassin will only get him killed as they aren't fighting with their fists but their skill with weapons.
Shay probably has the most variety of experience against enemies considering how he fought with and for both Templars and Assassins, so I think he would have a fair chance of defeating Connor or Edward.
Anyway, they are all just humans and their lives can be ended with a swift precise blade, which all of the Assassins are good at. That means someone like Aveline or Arno can end Ezio if they get an opportunity, it purely depends on who the plot favors.
@mightykalel: It's been a while since I've watched them and don't remember much about their feats. If JustiRisers is your favorite show since childhood, you should watch those other two as well and I think there were two crossover movies as well. JustiRisers is still the best one among them, in my opinion.
@kriotix: Yeah, it's sometimes fun to keep decimating armies. I once killed like 150 enemies in AC3 in one go and only didn't kill more because I got bored. AC games were so easy to complete in a perfect way ... until Unity came.
@kriotix: Having a different fighting style doesn't make it automatically better. It's been a while since I've played AC3 but I would really like to know how Connor has more experience than Shay. Anyway, does experience even matter among these fictional world characters? People keep taking down opponents with far more experience all the time, example being Connor taking down Haytham(which was purely PIS even if Haytham was pretty old).
It depends upon the environment whether the assassins' climbing skills will come to play here. Dual wielding isn't exactly an advantage and I doubt any of them actually fought against 20 multiple soldiers at once, unless you are talking about gameplay which really doesn't matter.
Shay killing a lot of assassins isn't important because it shows his cqc fighting skills but rather shows how he can counter other assassins' tactics(smoke bombs, long range weaponry, stealth etc). Connor might have a slight edge in close and personal fight but Shay's overall experience fighting the assassins plus his own fighting skills would give him the win.
Also, the one who has the plot on his side will win because most of the AC protagonists have almost similar skill levels at the end of the game.
Panther wins 5.5/10 due to superior feats and having the capability to fight enhanced humans. Ra's is good at using swords so that gives him an advantage here but Panther is more agile and is trained for unarmed fighting.
