** The Borgia are the poster child for BigScrewedUpFamily of the Renaissance and their portrayal in the Ezio games do not disappoint. While [[Rodrigo Borgia/UsefulNotes/PopeAlexanderVI]] was certainly a murderous, conniving asshole, the game's research neglects his exceptional religious tolerance in favor of an entertaining EvilOverlord who regards [[{{Hypocrite}} Christianity as bunk]] and sees the papacy as an entirely political office.[[labelnote:History]]Where the game falters is his real-life PetTheDog moment, his tolerance to Jews suffering from anti-Semitism who in turn lived in the famous Jewish quarter in Rome. His successor Julius was a vicious anti-Semite and spread rumors about him, including accusing Rodrigo of being Jewish himself (which might be true and if so, lend him a considerable FreudianExcuse). Neither fact is acknowledged in the game.[[/labelnote]] Likewise, Savonarola in the ''Bonfire of the Vanities'' DLC, although ''AC'' was hardly the first to come up with this portrayal, though the game acknowledges him as a WildCard who is not connected to Assassins or Templars. [[labelnote:History]]The reason Savonarola was able to carry out his famous Bonfire was because the people of Florence were sick and tired of watching wealthy Italian families flaunt their vast fortunes by commissioning ludicrously expensive sculptures and paintings while the rest of society was beset by plague and poverty. By the standards of the time he was closer to a popular revolutionary. Hell, in the 1990s he was even [[http://natcath.org/NCR_Online/archives2/1999a/012299/012299g.htm nominated as a candidate for sainthood]] (he didn't win though, obviously).[[/labelnote]]

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Justified and explained thanks to the above FramingDevice. The Animus allows subjects to explore a virtual reality simulation based on their ancestor's memories, but it is not a perfect recreation. This is how the player is able to get away with doing some things the ancestor might not have done, why there is VideoGameTime, why there is BenevolentArchitecture everywhere, etc. (Amusingly, even the subtitles are covered by this trope, with Desmond pointing this out in one instance in ''II.'') Basically, any time there's a bout of FridgeLogic at play, you can HandWave it as "it's not a perfect recreation, but it's close enough to maintain synchronization so just go with it."

The Animus is also explicitly modeled after a video game console, and in later games a variant of it is marketed as such to the public, further justifying things like the HUD, mission objectives, and control scheme being as they are.

Each entry has two separate plots. The first is set in the 21st century, where the battle between the Assassins and Templars has become one largely about information control, media manipulation and occasional cloak-and-dagger black-ops skirmishes. However, this is only the FramingDevice; the vast majority of the action is set in the historical plotlines, which include [[UsefulNotes/AncientEgyptianHistory Ancient Egypt]], UsefulNotes/TheCrusades, UsefulNotes/TheRenaissance, UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution, UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfPiracy, UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution and UsefulNotes/VictorianBritain. The expanded backstory found in the puzzle sections shows Assassins and Templars participating in every conceivable world-historical event, with famous figures in history such as Richard the Lionheart, Jeanne d'Arc, Leonardo da Vinci, Niccolo Machiavelli, the Borgias, Nikola Tesla, George Washington, Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler among many others either being Assassins or Templars or non-aligned people supported and opposed by either faction. Indeed, what began as a fairly unusual WideOpenSandbox variation of stealth and pioneering LeParkour traversal system became equally celebrated for its ShownTheirWork "historical tourism" of famous cities and its monuments allowing players the experience of having BeenThereShapedHistory.
