Death Battle Fanon Wiki
Corvo Vs Ezio


Two masters of stealth duke it out in this Death Battle to find out who is the better assassin.


Wiz: Assassination, the art of killing important people hopefully without being seen.

Boomstick: And few assassins are better than these two.

Wiz: Ezio Auditore da Firenze, the Master Assassin of Florence.

Boomstick: And Corvo Attano, Dunwall's deadliest killer.

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor and skills to find out who would a Death Battle.


Dishonored [Soundtrack] - Drunken Whaler

Wiz: In a place called Dunwall, there was no man more skilled than Corvo Attano. Because of his impeccable skills in stealth and combat, he became the bodyguard of Empress Jessamine Kaldwin.

Boomstick: A few rumors say he was a bit more then that if you know what I mean  - WINK, WINK, NUDGE, NUDGE. 

Wiz: Mov-

Boomstick: That means people were saying he was banging her. 

Wiz: MOVING ON - However, Dunwall was hit by a plug and thus Queen Kaldwin sent Corvo away. While this was happening a plan to kill the queen was being formed - a plan that took effect after Corvo got back. When that happened, Corvo fought off the assassins as best he could, but sadly due to their supernatural abilities, he was overcome and they murdered the Empress and kidnapped Princess Emily Kaldwin.

Boomstick:  And then he got put in jail which sucked - but then he was able to get out due to friends - Which is awesome.

Wiz: This is where Corvo's journey truly begins. As he was breaking out of prison he got the gear that would carry him throughout his new career as an assassin.

Boomstick: Let me handle this Wiz. He got a foldable blade, a pistol with standard bullets in it and a crossbow With Incendiary Bolts, Frag Bolts Sleep bolts and Regular Arrows all of which can be upgraded. He had all of this at first but then he got a spring wire trap basically a Razor Wire Bomb Trigger by proximity to enemies. A Frag Grenade and a Sticky Grenade he can hold around 5 to 9 of these. Hey, I didn't know this was canon to the Halo universe.

Wiz: No its not. Anyway, after he broke out of jail he was visited by a mysterious visitor called the Outsider Who gave him the ability to use supernatural powers. Such powers include Blink, his most famous ability.

Boomstick: Which is teleportation.

Wiz: NO! It actually lets Corvo move at high speeds. More than likely around the speed of lightning so he'd probably be moving around or above Mach 200. Dark Vision highlights the enemies and the sounds Corvo makes when he does anything, it also lets him see items and traps.

Windblast knocks back enemies and even kills them if they hit a solid object devouring swarm lets him summon rabbit rats to eat his enemies in mere seconds. Possession lets him well posses rats and even people. Bend time lets him stop time for around 8 seconds. This stops all projectiles and enemies and agility, it also lets Corvo run faster, jump higher, and take less damage from falls. Corvo is very skilled in stealth and is very athletic. He can also climb up walls chains and even use blink to help increase his mobility to high amounts.

Boomstick: When he hurt he can drink Sokolov's Elixir to heal him up or eat food When he's low on manna (which he uses to fuel his supernatural power) he can drink Piero's spiritual remedy To restore it he can hold around 4 of these and they restore around 20% of his Mana/Health.

Wiz: His most famous equipment is his mask which hides his face lets him zoom in on targets and even has amplified sounds. But while Corvo has all of the skills of a deadly killer, he is not infallible. Corvo has a bunch of powers they run on manna and it can regenerate over time he must not spam it for him to keep his manna reserves high that or drink Piero's spiritual remedy to restore it by a small amount and even with his powers he is just a normal human.

Boomstick: He uses his blade powers, technology and stealth and through a lot of trouble he finally saves the princess and brought an end to an attempted uprising by Hiram Burrows.

Wiz: Corvo was then granted amnesty by Emily, who appointed him as Royal Protector and Spymaster. However a Duke by the name of Luca Abele accused Corvo and Emily of being responsible for the series of political assassinations of high-ranking officials in Dunwall and crowned an illegitimate daughter of the Kaldwin family named Delilah as the new Empress of the Isles. Corvo tried to kill Delilah but her immortality allowed her to live and pulled the sword out of her heart. Delilah then peeled off the Mark of the Outsider from Corvo and put him into stone, only to be saved by Emily.

Boomstick: Well that wasn't a particularly badass moment for Corvo. But anyway, even with all this going against him he is still easily one of the best assassins ever and god help you if your in his way.  

Prisoner: You'd have to be lucky to escape Coldridge. And a complete madman. You'd have to be Corvo, in other words.   


Assassin's Creed 2 OST - Ezio's Family

Wiz: Ezio Auditore da Firenze. The Mentor of the Italian Brotherhood, THE Master Assassin. But during his early years, Ezio lived an ordinary life of luxury.


Wiz: Yes that is true. Ezio did not truly begin training aside from small fist fights and climbing. He really began training when he was 17 when his father and brother were killed by Rodrigo Borgia, the Grand Master of the Italian Templars. But before then, Ezio discovered his father's old gear for assassination. Eventually, he started his Assassin career by unknowingly attaining the skills and tools of the trade under the tutelage of several other Assassins.

Boomstick: Paola, a friend of Ezio's family taught him how to pick pocket and blend into crowds and told him to get the Hidden Blade in his possession to Leonardo da Vinci to repair.

Wiz: Yes. It was the moment that Ezio discovered he was naturally skilled with using the Hidden Blade, the trademark tool of the Assassins. After this, Ezio sought out and assassinated Uberto Alberti, the man who betrayed his family. After that it was when he visited his family's villa to rest. He would be later saved by his Uncle Mario, no NOT THAT MARIO, and his mercenaries. Mario decided to teach Ezio sword fighting, a vital skill he would need to continue perfecting the art of the Assassins. However after learning it and Mario revealing Ezio's heritage as an Assassin he rejected his ancestry and just wanted to get to Spain with his mother and sister.

Boomstick: Then Mario got mad and ran off to the city of San Gan- San Gimignano - A city in Italy where a general named Vieri de' Pazzi who had having his men launch several assaults on the mansion. Guilt ridden, Ezio accepted Mario's offer. While his mercenaries assaulted the city, Ezio made his way toward Vieri overpowering him and killing him in a sword duel. After that he learned more skills and got more weapons - awesome weapons that would allow him to finally avenge the deaths of his father and brother when he took down Rodrigo and Cesare. And aside from beating the shit out of the Borgias, Ezio would also end the Granada War, gave Christopher Columbus an Apple of Eden that would allow him to discover the New World, dismantled the slave trade in Florence led by Bonacolto Contarini, killed Dominican priest Girolamo Savarnola, rescued his best friend Leonardo da Vinci and met a literal god while inside the Vatican no less. Holy shit!, that's quite a historical rap sheet.

Wiz: After successfully dismantling the power of the Italian Templars, Ezio went on a pilgrimage to the Assassin fortress of Masyaf in Syria. The purpose of this visit was to obtain five seals containing the memories of the legendary Levantine Assassin mentor Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad. However, he was captured by the local Byzantine Templar garrison led by Captain Leandros. Luckily for Ezio, he was able to escape just in time from the grasp of the Templars and ended up in Altaïr's library where he would obtain his personal journal. Afterward, Ezio would sail to Constantinople, the capital of the late Byzantine Empire which had fallen under Ottoman rule since 1453. During his time in the city, he worked with Turkish Assassin Yusuf Tazim and Prince Suleiman to eliminate any remaining Byzantine Templar holdouts. He also met and fell in love with Sofia Sartor, a young librarian from Venice. They eventually settled down and married with Sofia giving birth to two children: Flavia and Marcello. By this point, Ezio had retired from being an Assassin and chose to live out the rest of his life in peace.

Boomstick: But fate was a bitch for Ezio as a young Chinese Assassin named Shao Jun came to Italy to seek guidance from him on how to rebuild her Brotherhood. At first, he was reluctant to assist Shao but after she recited the words he had written down, he agreed to train her. After they took down a group of Templar-affiliated Imperial Chinese soldiers, Ezio gave her a Precursor box and taught her to accept responsibility. While his wife and daughter went shopping, Ezio sat down on a bench and told a smug man that he was the problem for Florence. His deteriorating health would catch up to Ezio as he would die on the bench. Damn, what a weird place of death for someone like Ezio.

Wiz: Moving on, Ezio is a master at blending in with crowed pick pocketing and both unarmed and armed combat. He also picked up skills for freerunning and long-ranged combat and using a variety of weapons.

Boomstick: Yes, he has two Hidden Blades, a Hidden Gun, Smoke Bombs, Poison Crossbow and Throwing Knives. Quite a bit of these toys can be upgraded like the poison and Hidden Gun.

Wiz: Ezio can also dual wield his Hidden Gun and Sword to help him kill his enemies.

Boomstick: Ezio is skilled in fighting multiple enemies at once and is also a master at stealth.

Wiz: He doesn't have any physical weaknesses and is very strong willed and has a never say die mentality. That said, he can be a bit cocky or arrogant especially in his early years as an Assassin.

Boomstick: So with all his gear and his never say die mentality, Ezio Auditore IS one Assassin you don't wanna piss off.

Ezio: I have lived my life as best I could, not knowing its purpose, but drawn forward like a moth to a distant moon; and here at last, I discover a strange truth. That I am only a conduit, for a message that eludes my understanding.


Wiz: All right, the combatants are set, let's settle this debate once and for all...

Boomstick: Its time, for a DEATH BATTLE!

Death Battle[]

(Lady Boyle's Mansion, Dunwall)

Corvo had been sent to kill Lady Boyle but got a weird warning on his way out.


A letter had been handed to Corvo by Sam on his way towards the mansion. As he opened it up and read it he saw a warning saying "Watch for a person in a white hood and clothing like this. He will try to kill you."

Sam shows a picture of the traditional Italian Assassin garb to Corvo.

(Flashback end)

Corvo shook his head as he walks into the party looking around his mask on his face helped him blend in with the crowed as he looked for Lady Boyle. Sadly, he was disappointed to find out that there were three people who could be his target and he needed to find out which, but first he went outside to carry out a mission for one of his friends.

(With Ezio)

Ezio was making his way through the plunge and rat infested city He was amazed at all the high tech equipment he'd have to take back some to his friend Leonardo after he was done assassinating this supposed Templar Lady Boyle of course after finding evidence that supports her being a Templar. He finally jumped the fence ending up in the back of Lady Boyle's mansion he looked over and saw a man in a black hood shoot and kill another person in a duel. He reloaded his pistol by quickly spinning it. He would later put it away.

(With Corvo)

Corvo looked around after putting his pistol away and saw the white hooded man who supposedly was gonna kill him. He quickly pulled his Foldable Sword out and extended it with a flick of his wrist and blinked towards the man slashing at him but Ezio's reactions were quick and he dodged getting out his own sword.


Corvo slashes again and Ezio knocks him off balance. Ezio slashes down but Corvo blinks away. They would soon have a clash of blades. Ezio was stronger and started pushing Corvo back. When guards rushed over to their location, Corvo blinks away and Ezio hides in a pile of flower petals nearby.

(Corvo thoughts "Hmm, this Ezio is very skilled with a blade. I'll have trouble if I fight him one on one better try to take him out quietly") 

Corvo had his blade concealed with the rest of his gear walking around the party pretending to enjoy it like everyone else trying to assess who is the Lady Boyle was suppose to assassinate he used the zoom feather on his mask to zoom in on one possible Lady Boyle from afar he heard her voice in his ear due to the amplified hearing in his mask.

then he heard a voice that sounded somewhat familiar and he saw a familiar site of a man in a white garb he saw Ezio from afar Most the guards where dealt with from his shadow kill ability their body's gone or devoured by rats. He pulled out his gun from a corner of the mansion where no one could see him and fired on Ezio. Sadly a partygoer got in front of the bullet and it hit him instead of Ezio as everyone scattered from the bullet shot sounding out Corvo used blink to change his location and put his gun away. Corvo drank a mana potion to restore some of his mana. He looked behind him to see Ezio blending into a crowd slowly moving toward him as the party settled back down from the gunshot before as the remaining guards showed up Corvo then moved to a location in the house where Ezio could not ambush him. He then took out his blade as Ezio appeared right in front of him.

"So. what's your name" Corvo said as he pulled out his crossbow.

"Ezio Auditore da Firenze" He said as he pulled out his sword.

Corvo was the first to make a move slashing at Ezio. Ezio parred and slashed Corvo cutting leaving a shallow cut on Corvo's chest as he pulled out his pistol and shot Ezio, alerting guards to their location. Ezio ran down another hallway and Corvo put his weapons up and blinked to a high location with a bunch of shadows so the guards couldn't see him. Corvo then took aim with his crossbow full of sleep darts. 

(A few minutes later)

Corvo had just finished hiding the last of the guards and walked towards Ezio's last known location.

Ezio had a lot of trouble getting past the Wall of light since he was not allowed to enter. Luckily, a party guest had warned him of what would happen if he went near it Ezio had been having a lot of trouble with this Corvo fellow who had attacked him upon arrival he wonder why but he erased those thoughts from his head as his shoulder wound stung as he blended into a crowd of people his Eagle Vision on to try to see Corvo before Corvo could see him.  before he saw a small flash of red above him and a small object with a lit fuse drop Ezio ran as Corvo's bomb dropped. It later exploded taking out the group of party guests he was hiding him. Ezio then hid in a pile of flower petals out of Corvo's sight.

Corvo cursed "Goddamnit it I didn't think he could see me maybe he has something like my Dark Vision and saw me Blink above him" Corvo said to himself looking around for the man with the zoom feather on his mask "speaking of Dark Vision. Maybe". He turned on Dark Vision and almost immediately saw a figure hiding in a pile of flowers. Corvo jumped down and sneaked up on Ezio pulling out his sword not making a sound as he sneaked up just out of Ezio's line of sight and stabbed in the flower pile. Ezio jumped out before getting it throwing a knife at Corvo which he deflected.

"I appreciate if you don't think me a fool Ezio" "I apologize I thought if it would work on the guards I thought it would work on you" Ezio does a flourish and bow before pulling out his sword. They slashed at each other engaging in another sword duel as they make there way around the mansion occasionally accidentally wounding or killing a party guest. Ezio shot Corvo in the shoulder with his Hidden Gun and tried to stab him with his poison blade but Corvo blinked away to drink an elixir to heal. While Ezio ran towards the basement where he could make a dark area to be able to use his Eagle Vision over Corvo to its full ability, cutting the candles and putting out fires. There was no more light in the basement as Ezio prepared for the final showdown with Corvo as even though he had the advantage he didn't think this person would go down with out a fight. He kept waiting he didn't see a single person. His nerves riding high he heard slight stirring from a rat behind him but ignored it as the rat wasn't very near him.

(Third person point of view)

Corvo getting up from a crouch was behind Ezio he was facing sideways a yellow light gleaming on his mask. "You're pretty good" Corvo said slashing at Ezio. As Ezio heard him, he slashed back at Corvo.

(A few minutes later)

The mansion guards had their torches out as they searched the basement for the intruders that killed nearly everyone at the party including all three at Lady Boyle's mansion. They found one intruder with a slit throat and their sword knocked out of his hand.

(Outside of Lady Boyle's mansion)

A hooded maskless man stood there and ran there right hand through there black hair thinking about the fight that had just happened and frowning he had to kill someone who wasn't his target or a guard. Even if he was told the person was suppose to kill him "Oh well" Corvo said putting his mask that was in his left hand back on "I still have to save Emily and get my revenge" Corvo said blinking away from Lady Boyle's mansion. 

(A flashback occurs as Corvo had used stop time and possession to possess a rat and get a good distance behind Ezio and used Dark Vision to sneak up on him As well as use Wind blast to knock him back and stun him and knock the blade out of his hand, slitting his throat)



Boomstick: Welp, looks like there are fewer Assassins out there in the world.

Wiz: While Ezio was a skilled Assassin that could take out his targets, Corvo's mix of Dark Vision and Blink coupled with his stealth skills far surpassed Ezio's tracking skills. Furthermore, Ezio's stealth could not keep up with Corvo's Dark Vision and his own tracking skills.

Boomstick: And while Ezio's been training for years in the way of the Assassin since he was 17 years old, Corvo's been training his entire life to be a deadly killer.

Wiz: Plus Corvo's own technology outclassed Ezio's. So there is that and Corvo's supernatural ability would easily let him end the fight at any time.

Boomstick: But wait, Wiz. What about the Apple of Eden? Wouldn't that let Ezio take the win?

Wiz: Actually no. As shown with Ezio, those of strong will can resist its effects and Corvo has taken hours of torture FOR SIX MONTHS without confessing to a crime he didn't do. Even though that's all he had to do to end it

Boomstick: Even if we were to assume Corvo's will wasn't strong enough to resist the effects, the Mark of the Outsider grants immunity to supernatural powers as seen in duels with other people with the Mark of the Outsider.

Wiz: Even if the Mark of the Outsider didn't give Corvo immunity to the Apple of Eden, his Bend Time would easily let him stop time and kill Ezio before anything happened.

Boomstick: Not to mention Corvo is more agile and faster then Ezio.

Wiz: As well when it comes to power, Ezio might be stronger but it doesn't really matter as Corvo is overall more skilled with better abilities.

*Shows scene of Corvo possessing the rat while under stop time and hopping out of it sneaking up on Ezio*

Boomstick: Looks like the eagle was ratted out to the crow.

Wiz: The winner Is Corvo Attano.
