United Assassins Association

The United Assassins Association is an organization of assassins and representatives operating out of Santa Destroy in the No More Heroes series. Although nominally a club for the top assassins in America, in reality it is more of a local money-making organization based around making its members compete in combat over ranks on a leaderboard.


The United Assassins Association operated for some years prior to the events of No More Heroes. Some assassins like Bad Girl entered the world of assassination and thus the rankings through shadow headhunters such as Greco. Some years back, when Travis Touchdown was living in Tokyo, mysterious goons who Sylvia Christel claimed to be UAA agents ransacked Travis' favorite record store. This incident raises some questions about the UAA.

Despite presenting herself as merely a representative, Sylvia Christel is suggested to actually be the leader of the UAA. In No More Heroes, she recruited Travis into the rankings under the promise of sex and revenge, and it is suggested she had previously recruited the other assassins in some similar way. According to Mrs. Christel, the entire point of the UAA was merely for Sylvia to make money off of people killing eachother. This money came from both the ranking fees assassins had to pay as well as selling underground video tapes of the matches.

Between No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2, significant urban development came to Santa Destroy and the assassination business boomed in the wake of Travis' previous actions. As such, the UAA was treated as a much more legitimate operation, with fights being shown on television as well as displaying significantly more resources. However, after going through the events of this game, Travis swears to take down the UAA, though any followup on this is not shown on-screen.

In No More Heroes III, when the Galactic Superhero Rankings invade, Sylvia controls the situation by putting it into the structure of the UAA, ranking the aliens on the UAA leaderboard.
