* In terms of sheer RefugeInAudacity, the final boss fight of ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' tops the end of [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII]]. How do you top a fistfight with a pope in the Sistine Chapel? A boss-fight with President George Washington atop a pyramid (that is an exact replica of the US Seal), with AppliedPhlebotinum {{Magitek}} leading to the rooftop caving down and both Connor and Washington a bloody mess. [[RuleOfCool It's awesome]].

* The first modern day mission where Desmond infiltrates a skyscraper in Manhattan. No Animus simulation this time, Desmond is actually doing it himself, and scaling a thousand-foot building with handholds as small as a steel girder sticking a few feet out from the side. On a meta level, there's something about knowing exactly how high skyscrapers are that makes it seem more real and dangerous. And Desmond does it, showing no fear.

On a story level, Desmond is doing the same as his ancestors have, but he's doing it at heights around ten times higher than they ever did.

** The game really attempts to take an objective stance on the historical events too, portraying them WartsAndAll for the most part (aside from the conspiracy theory Templar Assassin meta plot and all). In this age of video games [[VideoGame/CallOfDuty where]] [[MedalOfHonor pro-American]] [[VideoGame/{{Battlefield}} bravado]] is rampant and probably does a good job of alienating fans from other countries, this one does its best to be all inclusive and informative to boot.

* Due to the battle itself being really easy, most people don't get a chance to listen to Connor and Haytham's last argument in their final duel. Those who do give it a listen has Haytham talking about how once the war is over [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized they will fall to infighting and divide over the meaning of their new freedom.]] To which Connor replies, "No! They will come together to make something better than the sum of their parts." (And, given what we know from history, there was infighting and even civil war down the line, but Conner was right. The US as a nation is about coming together and compromising to create a better nation step by step.)

* Kanen'tó:kon also gets a shining moment of awesome in the DLC, where he manages to take down several of [[spoiler: King Washington's]] personal guards before going after the antagonist himself. [[spoiler: He doesn't end up finishing the job. ]]

* Even after the CurbStompBattle with [[spoiler: King Washington]], Connor takes three bullets to the chest and stomach - plus a stab wound from a bayonet - and SURVIVES. Given that the last shot was nearly at point blank range, the fact that he survives even after a few months of recovering is still amazing.
