Listen, if you ever need anybody murdered, please give me a call. I’m very discrete. I have no code of ethics, I will kill anyone, anywhere!

These villains are individuals who are paid money to kill as a contract from either a criminal organization or underground cult. Another term is Hitmen. Alternatively, an assassin refers to anyone who is involved in the crime of assassination: the murder of those in a position of power, such as a politician, government official, or even prominent celebrity.

For Characters which are also Ninjas, use Ninja instead of Assassin. Do not tag pages with both.
