Thugs were burlier and tougher-looking than most civilians, and were most notable for carrying throwing knives, which Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad could pickpocket. However, if a thug caught him pickpocketing, they – as well as any within the area – would proceed to fist-fight the Assassin.
Thugs would never flee from a scuffle, instead choosing to fight until they collapsed. If their opponent drew a blade, however, they would run off immediately.
- There is an achievement in Assassin's Creed for pickpocketing forty throwing knives successfully from thugs.
- Whereas thugs in the cities of Damascus, Acre and Jerusalem wore identical clothing, thugs in Masyaf had their own outfit.
