The Assassin is the sole playable character of the puzzle-based game, Murder of King, but is an example of a protagonist villain since the goal of the game is to murder a sleeping king via bypassing his numerous security systems.

The mode of murder is always to stab the King in the heart as he sleeps and to aid in bypassing the numerous traps set to stop him the assassin uses a propeller-device to fly (despite the game being set in medieval times, when such technology would never of existed).


  • in killing a King the Assassin is guilty of numerous crimes, most notable being regicide and high treason, both of which were punishable by death (in the game however he is simply arrested if caught and presumably sent to the palace dungeon)
