    Going by style and such

    1. Itachi
    Genjutsu a hostess into poisoning your tea . . .

    2. Sasori
    Does it himself

    3. Yamanaka Clan, especially Fuu
    Taking a walk with your wife?
    Why it buy her a doll . . .

    4. Anime Kurenai
    Can leave genjutsu traps . . .

    5. Hyuga, especially Hinata
    She can see you from 20km away
    Guess what else she can do from 20km away . . .

    Honourable Mentions:
    1. Zabuza
    While he can finish off like no other, his setup is lacking
    - he needs to get close
    - a sudden mist would have anyone on guard
    - walks around with a big heavy blade
    But his feats against a kage (getting in and escaping) prove his all rpund skills are excellent

    2. Haku
    While his finish is also very good, he still needs to get close explicitly

    3. Gaara, Konan etc
    "Look! A butterfly"
    "Ooh, it's somewhat dusty today"
     
  5. Shark On a break..

    Rinne Madara

    Limbo is probably the most haxed hit and run style attacks in the series. Madara can just sit on his ass and let the clones do their work.


    Kakashi


    The range that Kamui possesses coupled with it's high warping speed gives Kakashi the means to oneshot plenty of Kage Level Ninja safety from a distance, provided they can't maneuver around the Kamui portal (i.e most of the cast).

    He'd be akin to a sniper.


    Kabuto
    -

    The combination of and SM Kabuto's enhanced sensory capabilities mean that targets are in for a nasty treat.

    They can't hide from him, and with Tayuya's sound based Genjutsu at play, a target couldn't even evade his long range assault even if their aware of Kabuto's location due to paralysis.


    Obito

    His reactionary features coupled with his phasing/warping abilities means almost anyone is susceptible to getting one shot if he teleports behind them. Even . Obito's creep level is 100%


    Mui
    -


    The inability to sense Mui while invisible coupled with his OHK Dust Release techs, he's an obvious contender. My only gripe is that i'm unsure whether he can remain invisible while simultaneously using Jinton.

    If the top 5 arent all Genjutsu specialists youre all wrong.

    Genjutsu masters could hypnotize a damn waitress or a prostitute to poison your food or cut your throat while you sleep and do so from literally miles away from their target and theyd never know they were even involved.

    Most Genjutsu masters are also trained Jonin or Kage level fighters meaning infiltration abilities are present across the board regardless of which name you pick as well. Youre talking a marginal difference in the grand scheme of things. Nowhere near as big of a disparity you get in their methods of killing.

    How did that work out for Itachi huh?



    Genjutsu certainly helps, but it's not gonna be such a drastic game changer, specially against ninja worth their salt.

    There is far more complexity to an Assassination when adding an outside element such as a 3rd party via Genjutsu.

    Likelihood of them even being given a chance to be in a situation where the target lets their guard down, likelihood of them actually being able to pull it off, length and potency of the Genjutsu, and most importantly, behavioral aspects that won't give away the fact that they are being "controlled", confirmation of the actual kill etc.

    Although this is not to say it won't be a viable option against certain targets who would be more susceptible to this type of methods. However as the Manga showed, even someone like Jiraiya which in theory would be the perfect target, was able to see through this, and it had nothing to do with his strength, it's about being perceptive, which most ninja worth going through this much trouble are.

    Zabuza was one of the first that came to mind due to his silent assassination hype but he would work better as an assassin during a big battlefield encounter rather than a specific target mission.

    It's hard to be stealthy while carrying that big ass sword around, which btw he loves throwing at his targets.

    4. Muu because of Invisibility and Dust Release

    Muu, if he can invincible-shoot Jinton.
    Itachi, the only one in the manga who directly controlled a Genjutsu Woman right before our eyes on panel.
    Madara, Limbo hax machines through multiple foes.
    Kisame, multiple sensory team-fooling threat and espionage. Cannonically tricked the heck out of Killer Bee a subtle sensor.
    Pain, chameleon espionage and Invisibility.

    1. Minato Namikaze

    2. Kakashi Hatake/Obito

    3. Muu

    Invisibility, flight and Jinton speaks for itself.
    4. Itachi

    5. Sasuke


    Honorable Mention, just cause he's one of my fav's and he would be on here if Kishimoto could write him properly.

    in no order

    Minato
    Tobirama
    Obito
    Mu
    Zetsu

    Minato & Tobirama because FTG seals are permanent, and they can go attack anyone at any time, and at anywhere.
    Obito basically the same with his Kamui
    Mu because of his invisible ability which could be deadly.

    Zetsu because he can turn himself into an exact clone of someone whose chakra he absorbed. Which was proven to be extremely
    deadly during the war arc, and the ability that did the most damage to the SA.

    2-That's cool, doesn't changr much though.

    I'm assuming you agree with everything else regarding the complexity since you did not address it

    Great job mentioning Zetsu, he is largely forgotten but he has one of the most legit abilities an Assassin could have, a perfect clone.

    In no particular order (and minus God-tiers)

    Minato - "Blink and you'd miss it" nuff said

    Obito - This guy can appear anywhere anytime without a prerequisite like Minato, and disregard even common barriers placed over a village like Minato.

    Tobirama - for similar reasons to Minato

    Zetsu - He can blend in with the Earth itself and become whom ever he wants to.

    Jiraiya - He can blend in with S/T frogs and remain undetected. He can become a shadow which can also disappear into structures like walls, he can even possess another man's shadow.

    Good eye Crimson. I agree. Though Genjustu is still, fundamentally, at it core, the art of deception so a master of the art like Itachi should still get honourable mentions in assassination ability.

    1. Sasuke (Rinnegan Genjutsu without eye contact to have someone murder you or murder yourself, Warp you into an explosive tagged dumpster while walking across the street or kicks you into a portal to Kaguya's dimension and closes it).

    2. Dan (Invisible Ghost Mode with kilometers of distance, that possesses the victim and kills the body leaving no physical evidence, even Rinnegan couldn't sense or perceive it)

    3. Kakashi (Stealth specialist who can mask his presence so even Kakuzu couldn't hear him moving behind him with Raikiri active, can move underground into buildings and blow it up with an explosive tagged bunshin from underground, Kamui sniper from a kilometer away, Genjutsu to put your bodyguards to sleep with a glance)

    4. Obito (Burn an entire building to ashes from a kilometer away, Genjutsu someone to kill you or kill yourself with a walk-by glance, warp to their bedroom at night under their bed, push a sword through it or touch their leg and warp them then warp out)

    5. Itachi (Henge into a random person, walk by you on the street, look you in the eyes, you drop dead from Tsukuyomi leaving no physical evidence, light Amaterasu on you while standing in a crowd or across the street on a roof, fire Totsuka through your window at night sucking you into the Gourd leaving no physical evidence, have an explosive bunshin walk near you at any point, rig a hypnotized person with 20 explosive tags and have them move near you)

    Honorable mentions:

    • Tobirama (Touch a possession, a person in the entourage, a possession of the person in the entourage, an area they travel to regularly, the bathroom in the party they're at, the person and apologize for your clumsiness while you pick up your bullshit possessions - warp to them and kill them when they're alone - warp out, disguise an Edo, have the Edo walk anywhere in the person's vicinity - activate GFK then remove the Edo Tensei afterwards).
    • Mu (Invisible, Undetectable by Chakra Sensors and Barriers, Jinton to erase any physical evidence, sensing to find and fire the Jinton beam into the secure building's floor where the target is while flying right outside of the person's room)
    • Naruto (999 total Bunshin that can follow, trick and kill people from across the globe while taking a shit in his own house back in Konoha, dude can literally create an entire disguised village of citizens with random appearances to crowd and knife someone in the street or manipulate someone into a trap within a fabricated world of people that don't even exist, he's literally an entire KGB himself)
