* BloodIsSquickerInWater: [[spoiler: Micheletto's failed assassination of Cardinal della Rovere in Naples]] results in this, [[spoiler: as he garrotes an unfortunate mook who attacks him after he is recognised by the target.]]

** All over the place. It's to be expected, since the show is produced by the same company that made ''TheTudors,'' which was known for not inviting realism over for tea.

** It also helps that he's a lot more progressive than many of the 'non evil' characters. Not just in his treatment of Jews (which at least had a self-serving aspect to it), but he also has no qualms appointing Giulia Fornese in charge of his finances and thoroughly stomping down on the opposition to it from his cardinals - or rather, letting her stomp down on it for herself. He also doesn't share many of the toxic attitudes towards women and doesn't think of his daughter or wife or mistresses as being lesser in intellect.

* EyeScream: Micheletto treats us to some by jamming his thumbs into a guard's eyes, ''[[{{Badass}} underwater]]'', in Naples ("The Moor").

* BadassGay: Micheletto is basically in Cesare's employ to torture or assassinate anyone who are an inconvenience to him. He definitely turns this trope UpToEleven.

* ThePrince: Niccolo Machiavelli's hugely important political text was written, in part, in reaction to his encounters with Cesare when he was serving as Florentine diplomat. He shows up in "Lucrezia's Wedding" and tends to serve as Cesare's ''[[TheConsigliere consigliere]]''.

** The presence of Machiavelli is an example too; the time frame isn't very clear after the 1492 title in the pilot episode, but most of the events depicted took place between 1492 and 1496 in real life. Machiavelli was elected head of the Second Chancery in 1498 and didn't hold any political position in Florence before that. Then again, the show seems to be under the impression that he worked for the Medici, so the year alone isn't the only bit of artistic license (in reality they were his arch enemies who had him imprisoned and tortured-many think he wrote his infamous book ''ThePrince'' in part as veiled criticism of them).

** Two other episodes share their titles with works of Creator/NiccoloMachiavelli, appropriately: "The Art of War" and the series finale "The Prince."

** Isabella d'Este, wife of Francesco Gonzaga, was one of the most important women of Renaissance and even defined "The First Lady of the world". She was, however, cut out and in her place there is the fictional Bianca Gonzaga. As Leonardo, Isabella was connected to the Borgia: she later became Lucrezia's sister in law, and Lucrezia had a relationship with Isabella's husband.
