Intelligence: As one of the nineteen Hassan-i-Sabbah, Assassin is extremely skilled in all fields expected of an assassin such as stealth, disguise, silent-killing, and reconnaissance. In addition to these skills, Assassin managed to acquire many more skills by compartmentalizing his mind into separate personalities, allowing him to access these skills at any time by switching between personalities and granting him the ability to convincingly disguise himself as practically anyone, as young and old men, women, and even children, which manifests as Zabaniya: Delusional Illusion. In addition, his skills in hand-to-hand combat far outstrip any normal human. However, they still pale in comparison to the combat ability of the other Servant classes, and he will quickly be overwhelmed should he directly face one of them. In addition, his skills are divided amongst his personalities, requiring them to regroup to best utilize their knowledge.
Weaknesses: Assassin's abilities and parameters are divided amongst incarnations, growing weaker as more Assassins are created. In addition, the Assassins aren't a hive mind and have no telepathic connection, so they have to return to a single place to share information.
Notable Attacks / Techniques:
Zabaniya: Delusional Illusion: The Noble Phantasm of the Hundred-Faced Hassan, used on himself rather than an opponent. Assassin is normally a singular entity, but he possesses a compartmentalized soul and multiple personalities that allow him to divide his spirit into up to eighty different Assassins, each of which possesses specialized skills and a distinct body. There are men and women, giants and children. Their only shared characteristics are their masks, race, and black cloaks. They vary in personality, strengths, and weaknesses, and if one dies, they vanish, and their characteristics and skills are no longer accessible to the group as a whole. There are those who are glory hounds, and those who have no skill in assassination despite their class.
They can be split up to gather information, using their Presence Concealment to avoid detection and operating as a spy network. They lack any telepathy and thus must gather to share information. However, their parameters are divided up between bodies, causing them to become weaker and weaker, and an individual Assassin is no match for a Heroic Spirit. Even an army of them doesn't stand much of a chance, making an all-out attack with all of the Assassins a last resort to take out a vulnerable target.
Presence Concealment: The ability to hide one's presence as a Servant. The Assassins' A+ rank proficiency in this skill renders them virtually impossible to detect unless they decide to attack, in which case this skill's effects sharply drop. Each Assassin maintains the full power of this skill regardless of how many bodies they split into.
Expert of Many Specializations: The knowledge of many professional skills; in Assassin's case, thirty-two in total, including tactics, academia, espionage, assassination, swindling, and rhetoric. Assassin utilizes this ability by switching between his different personalities, though the skills are divided up amongst his incarnations when he uses Zabaniya. To fill in the gaps made by thirty-two abilities divided between eighty Assassins, other less useful skills such as impersonating Toyotomi Hideyoshi and identifying the sex of chicks come into play.
Librarian of Stored Knowledge: An ability that allows for the clear recollection of memories through a Luck check, even details of memories that were not consciously processed at the time. Assassin utilizes it by distributing his memory processing amongst his personalities.
