Corners and dispatches foes with ease.
—In-game description

Assassin (アサシン, Asashin?) is a Job class only available to viera. Assassins are the deadliest force that Tactics Advance has to offer, with dangerous instant-KO abilities and incomparable stat growth in all areas except HP.

This possibly makes the Assassin class the absolute best class to level up viera, but be careful about their HP growth, since Assassins are almost always the first target by enemies because of their weak health. A special treat to Assassins is that they can wield either Katanas or Greatbows in combat. When equipped with the Concentrate ability, Assassins are considered overpowered, because their instant kill abilities gain near perfect Accuracy.
