Sam Fisher vs Ezio Auditore
Debate Rounds (3)
Ezio was both a highly skilled Assassin and an adept Mentor. He learned and developed a vast array of skills, such as picking pockets, blending into crowds, armed and unarmed combat, alternative or multiple weapon attacks, stealth and public assassination techniques, freerunning and long-range combat.
He was also able to use a variety of weapons and gadgets, including two Hidden Blades, a sword, throwing knives, smoke bombs, short blade and many more. Born with the ability to use Eagle Vision, Ezio could instinctively differentiate friend from foe. After talking to his captive father, he later inherited his father's Assassin robes, which he would upgrade with various armor and dyes throughout his life.
Note that I am only using items and armor that were at one time possessed or used by Ezio.
For Our purposes, Ezio will be equipped with The Armor of Altair, which according to the wiki-
The Armor of Alta"r was an unbreakable set of armor that was constructed by Alta"r Ibn-La'Ahad using knowledge obtained from the Apple of Eden.
Subsequent to his death, the armor was sealed in the Sanctuary beneath the Villa Auditore, where it was later recovered and used by another member of the Assassin Order, Ezio Auditore da Firenze.
Ezio will also be using one hidden blade and one hidden gun, concealed on each wrist. He also has one of Ezio's Swords hanging at his side. In his hands, he holds the Apple of Eden  and the Staff of Eden.  (These allow Ezio to utilize mind-control as well as create illusions. The conjunction of the Apple and the Staff further enhance its mind-control effects.
On his belt, he has five throwing knives, and three smoke bombs. Ezio can see through any smokescreens/walls/obstacles by making use of his Eagle Vision.
Ezio, being an assassin in the fourteen hundreds, is obviously very skilled with a dagger or knife. He is most adept with the hidden blades, which is the iconic traditional weapon of the assassin.
"The illusions made by the Apple can't actually damage someone and I don't know how potent the mind control is but Fisher has been trained in counter interrogation techniques."
This is true about the illusions, however, counter interrogation techniques are no match for the Apple, especially when combined with the Staff. If you would like to know the magnitude of the power of the Apple and Staff, here is this-
"This... piece of silver cast out Adam and Eve. It turned staves into snakes. Parted and closed the Red Sea. Eris used it to start the Trojan War; and with it, a poor carpenter turned water into wine."
R13;Al Mualim, speaking to Alta"r about the Apple
If you didn't realize, the poor carpenter is Jesus Christ. Turning a staff into a snake means that the Apple can create life, therefore, the illusions created by the Apple CAN hurt Sam. It parted and closed the Red Sea.
Therefore, the Apple can hurt Sam, especially attached to the staff, which enhances its power.
All Ezio would have to do would be to mind-control Sam and have him shoot himself in the face. Speaking of Sam's face, I don't believe that Sam has any sort of face-guard or helmet. Ezio's knife throwing skill could easily allow him to hit Sam in the face with a razor sharp blade.
"Sam has better espionage and stealth combat so it comes down to the environment and how the fight operates"
I beg to differ. Ezio was trained from a young age to become an assassin, and carried out the skillful and stealthy assassinations of many people, often in public, without being aprehended. His skills of stealth and moving undetected are at the very least equal to those of Sam. Obviously, Ezio's job is also based on stealth (Being that he assassinates people).
To even further drive home my point about the Apple's mind control abilities, I have included this, which is someone talking about the what happens when the Apple falls into the wrong hands-
"I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING. I KNOW WHAT YOU DID. I SAW HIM. HE HAD A METAL BALL. IT OPENED. THEY WENT CRAZY. SHOOTING. STABBING. TORE EACH OTHER TO PIECES. I KNOW IT WAS YOU PEOPLE. SAW THE LOGO. HEARD THE NAME. I'M GOING TO TELL. ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN. YOU'LL BE EXPOSED. THEY'LL KNOW THE TRUTH. AND THEN YOU WILL PAY. YOU CRAZY BASTARDS. YOU'LL PAY."
R13;An unidentified individual's e-mail to Dr. Warren Vidic.
Encase you weren't aware, the Apple of Eden is the said metal ball. This is referring to someone who the Templars (The Antagonists of the series) have made attack each other with mind control.
Using the Apple, Ezio turns himself invisible (Illusions) and obscures the entire battle area by filling it with smoke (Either real smoke, or fake smoke illusions from the Apple/Staff). Ezio can see through this smoke by using his Eagle Vision to locate Sam Fisher. Depending on the environment, Ezio may also be able to turn bystanders against Sam Fisher (Apple), and while they would mostly not be a threat, they will certainly not help him. Once Ezio moves in range of Sam (The range will also be larger due to the combined effects) Ezio will have Sam simply shoot himself through the eye, or Ezio will do it himself by having Sam essentially incapacitated by mind control. There is no way that Sam could stand up the the powers of both the Apple an the staff. Please, vote Con for Ezio.

Reasons for voting decision: Con convinced me that Ezio has the superior weapons tech (apples of Eden) and skill sets (eagle vision) needed to win in a head to head match up with Sam Fisher. Would have liked it had Pro expanded his arguments to include something like "Sam's missions are handled and backed by the NSA and US Govt," in which case Sam realistically could just radio back to HQ and have them ask the Air Force for an air strike on Ezio or something. But Con -in the end- was smart to include alien tech on his side. Good debate overall.
