Quickdeath was a male NightWing assassin who had been hired by Queen Vigilance to murder Darkstalker in Darkstalker (Legends). He hurled a spear at Darkstalker during Queen Vigilance's Glass Jubilee. Although Quickdeath had thrown the spear accurately, Darkstalker's impenetrable scales saved his life due to an animus spell he had cast earlier. Lionfish killed Quickdeath soon afterwards.
- Quickdeath's name is ironic because he got killed soon after the attempt even though he was an assassin hired by Queen Vigliance.
- He is one of the four characters whose name is ironic, the others being: Coconut, Quickstrike, and Chameleon.
