Assassin (アサシン, Asashin) is a Assassin-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.
Assassin's True Name is Fuma Kotarou (風魔 小太郎, Fūma Kotarō), the fifth to bear this title and served successor of Houjou Souun - Ujitsuna.
Different from Japan's representative ninja, the Iga and Kuga, there are few reference documents about the Fuuma. The fact that the Houjou family which they served dissolved during the age of warring states is probably a big reason for that. Not even which kind of ninja tool the Fuuma used is certain.
Fuuma Koutarou is descended from foreigners and, at the same time, also has the blood of the Oni kind mixed in his veins. For the sake of surviving that turbulent war period, the clan performed a thorough match manipulation and gave birth to him as the greatest masterpiece of "shinobi" - the leader of the Fuuma. An inborn chief and shinobi, the Fuuma party would thus welcome one summit.

- Immortal Chaos Brigade: Undying Chaotic Brigade (イモータル・カオス・ブリゲイド: 不滅の混沌旅団, Imōtaru Kaosu Burigeido: Fumetsu no Konton Ryodan): is the Noble Phantasm of Fuma Kotarou. Rather than Fuuma Koutarou's Noble Phantasm, it is more appropriate to call it the Noble Phantasm of the Fuuma Ninja Corps. It summons his 200 subordinates as spiritual bodies, automatically turns the surroundings of the enemy group into darkness, and throw them into a hell of agonizing cries. Together with 200 thugs, the Fifth Fuuma Koutarou that was employed by the Houjou infiltrated into the encampment of the Takeda army and indiscriminately murdered wounded soldiers, plundered weapons and provisions, and dumped fire here and there while raising war cries. Those night raids that continued every day and night forced the Takeda army into retreat.
- Presence Concealment (気配遮断, Kehai Shadan, localized as "Obfuscation") is the capacity to hide one's presence as a Servant. It is a common skill to the Assassin class. Thanks to his A+ rank for Kotaro is possible to disappear completely and become almost impossible to be detected. However, efficiency will decrease once preparations to attack are taken.
- Subversive Activities (破壊工作, Hakai Kōsaku, localized as "Subversion") is the talent to reduce the enemy forces in the preliminary stages, before going into battle. An expert of traps. However, the higher is the ranking of this Skill, the more one's spiritual status as a hero declines.
