* How does Connor survive three bullets and a stab wound to the chest in ''The Tyranny of King Washington''? Remember; [[spoiler:it's all a dream. This is all happening in Connor's head the entire time. In hindsight, it makes sense that he can survive, albeit after some time healing. No of this is really happening. He's ''literally'' been trapped in a dream the entire time, so it would make sense that his injuries would have no mortal effects on him.]]

** Y'all seem to be forgetting our friends Thomas Hickey, Charles Lee, and even Haytham - after a time - were all on the patriot's side (even if only for keeping up appearences). This game has made a big point of returning to AC1's stance of "side A isn't our enemy, side B isn't our enemy; the Templars are our enemy." Aside from mooks (and [[spoiler: his best friend]]), Connor never kills a non templar and the clothing of his targets ranges from red to blue. the game is fairly explicit about saying "hey look how shitty everyone was at being a decent human during this time!"

** The fridge logic, however, comes in when you realize that he '''is''' a Welshman; Connor is one-quarter Welsh by way of his paternal grandfather, who was of course the legendary ''Welsh'' pirate, ''[[AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag Edward Kenway]]!''

** It's also possible that this was also the Masayif strategy redone. Much like that place, the assassins might have eventually decided to shut the homestead down as it was a liability for the Assassins staying below the radar.

* Overlapping with TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything--ACIII has a huge amount of care put into animations, but one interesting one appears if you steer Connor by flames of any sort--he flinches and protects his face. This seems rather odd for a big badass guy like him--but actually, [[spoiler:given his traumatic experience with his village burning during his childhood]], it makes total sense that he'd be more uncomfortable around flames than Ezio or Altair who had no such event in their past.

* In ''The Tyranny of King Washington'', Connor wakes up to find that nothing on his life has actually happened, and he must use previously forbidden powers and abilities to put things as they should be. In other words: [[spoiler: Nothing is true. Everything is permitted]].

* Why is it that during ACIII, whenever Connor speaks to his fellow natives, he speaks Mohawk, yet in the Tyranny of King Washington they're all speaking English? Because they're '''not''', ToKW is being viewed in a different Animus, it isn't a memory that Desmond is experiencing in Rebecca's custom model, it's happening in an Abstergo Animus being viewed by someone else, presumably during the data collection of Connor's life for Abstergo Entertainment, with upgraded translation software - they're speaking Mohawk but it's being translated for ease of use.

** One of the Tomahawk counterattacks has Connor hit the target's shoulders with his hatchet, and then stab his head once with his Hidden Blade, before punch-stabbing again at his face again to push the guy off his tomahawk; the animation is too vague to say WHERE Connor stabbed, but the implication is that Connor [[EyeScream blinded]] or ''lobotomized'' the man, and the way the man just leans and falls back implies he's very much alive, but in a world of agony.

His face is full of blood and squirting some, which makes it even worse.


Added DiffLines:

** One of the two Axe takedowns from the front has Connor hack at the guy's shoulder with the axe. While the Hessian Axe indicates you killed that guy, other axes don't have that large a blade. If the guy gets to a doctor and survive, he'll never get full mobility of that arm again.

* As mentioned above, Connor is pretty brutal in battle. What's most shocking is that a few of his attacks aren't entirely or immediately lethal and could instead leave the victims crippled for life.

*** Another has Connor rolling and chopping at the guy's back; he either hit the man's kidney or his spine, either way unpleasant.
** One execution with the musket has Connor stab the man in the belly or the crotch, and the pulling it down; while the belly one will have the guy dying from horrible infection, the groin one will leave the man an eunuch for life.
*** Another one has Connor swing the musket barrel at the man's face. It's certainly not fatal, and most likely broke that [[TheToothHurts guy's teeth]].
** One Hidden Blade execution has Connor slice at the man's neck and then stab him on the back of the neck, his spinal cord. If the man survives the neck slice, he's paralyzed for life [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking on top of losing his vocal cords]].
** One of the War Club counters have you bash the guy into the ground and then smash his head open. ''You can see blood squirting and the man twitching''. The man's surely going to die, but it's not a clean, instant kill.
** Even unarmed combat gets a few. One of the unarmed executions has Connor punch and then NeckSnap the target(and since unarmed executions leaves them writhing on the ground, you non-fatally broke the guy's neck). The high-profile unarmed takedown from behind has Connor grab the person, turn them upside down and then throw them on the ground in a way that leaves no doubt you just broke that guy's spine ([[SickeningCrunch the sound of something painfully breaking doesn't help either]]).
