Final Fantasy Tactics description

The Assassin's Dagger (アサシンダガー, Asashin Dagā?), also called Assassin Dagger or Assassin, is a recurring dagger in the Final Fantasy series. It is often among the stronger weapons for Thieves and Ninja and inflicts instant death on its targets. Due to this, the weapon proves ineffective against undead enemies, often restoring them to full health.

The Deathstroke is the ultimate weapon for Hawkeye should he take the Dark-most class of the Ninja, the Nightblade, a Thief class that has taken the arts of the ninja into a renegade path of a professional killer. It is an elongated jet black miserecorde like dagger, with tarnished brass mouthpieces, a fleshy leather-like material for its handle, and another smaller blade at its pommel. It is a dagger made of materials that when exposed to darkness, completely absorbs all light and blends into shade, hiding its presence completely. Its lethality is further realized through its blade design, allowing it to cut and pierce into its victims without effort, making it perfect for assassinations.

Etymology Edit

The Assassins were a secret order of Nizari Ismailis, particularly those of Persia and Syria, that formed in the late 11th century. Mentions of Assassins were preserved within European sources where they are depicted as trained killers, responsible for the systematic elimination of opposing figures.
