* InterfaceSpoiler: Some of the 100% Sync parameters shown at the beginning of missions can spoil what will happen during it. For instance, one of the earliest missions has the parameter "Catch the courier in one minute" without any other indication that the mission will contain a chase sequence.

** [[spoiler: The Apple of Eden is this for many of the missions it is equipped for. When Ezio has it, he can't equip any of his other weapons and equipment, so the Apple is his only means of fighting. Using it drains his health, how much depending on how large you want the area of effect to be, which is especially ridiculous during the first mission you carry it for, which has the 100% synch requirement of not losing any health. In the other missions, you are often required to use the Apple against a large number of guards, which can lead to you using the Apple against a few of them, then awkwardly running around to avoid the rest while you wait for your health to recharge.]]

** In ''Project Legacy'', [[spoiler:Assassin trainee]] Giovanni Borgia, has not only voices in his head thanks to [[spoiler:being "saved" by the Shroud of Eden]] which he refers to as "Consus" (possibly referring to "consciousness"), but also sometimes experiences his father [[spoiler:Perotto Calderon]]'s and his implied ancestor [[spoiler:Marcus Junius Brutus']] memories. The implications of the former are kind of squicky...

*** To be fair, by this point Desmond has been suffering severe hallucinations for months now, and has trouble telling what's real. Not that his reaction of telling no one anything was a ''good'' one, but it's sort of understandable if you tilt your head and squint.

** ''Franchise/MetalGear'' has made at least two major shout-outs to Assassin's Creed (such as Big Boss' ability to perform the Leap of Faith in ''Peace Walker'' and Altaïr's robe ''[=MGS4=]''), it's only fair for this game to return the favor. Firstly: [[spoiler:Raiden's ''[=MGS4=]'' outfit]] becomes a possible costume for Ezio -- albeit with Ezio wearing it -- if you happen to complete all the Virtual Training missions, which themselves could be construed as a shout-out to the many VR Mission modes for MGS games. Secondly, when you first meet back up with [[spoiler:Leonardo, his voice appears to be coming from inside a modern cardboard box]].

* ActionGirl: The Courtesan, The Thief, The Smuggler, The Hellequin, The Dama Rossa, [[spoiler: Claudia]], and even Caterina in a sense. Also, any female Assassins you recruit.

** Averted and played straight. Ezio's armor increases his health as he gets stronger versions of it. However, the real aversion comes from [[spoiler: Cesare during the final sequence]], where his well-placed upper body armor deflects Ezio's Hidden Blade. The battle comes with a series of quicktime scenes where Ezio strips away the armor piece by piece to render him vulnerable... and then [[spoiler: Ezio makes all that work pointless by dropping him off the wall]].

** The [[spoiler: Apple of Eden]] in the final stages. You basically get to walk casually around, [[spoiler: turning enemy soldiers against each other or reducing their brains into mush with the power of the Apple]]. It is only available during specific memories.

** Ezio begins his campaign against the Borgia in Rome by fighting off a group of guards harassing a peasant in a plaza before the northern gate into the city. [[spoiler: His fight against Cesare and the very last of his supporters also happens here, and ends with Cesare being dragged off by the Papal Guards, destroying the last vestiges of the Borgia's power in the city]].

He collapses on the road and awakens in a small house on the outskirts of Rome being tended by an anonymous woman. It causes him to LevelDrain.

That turns out to have been a mistake in hindsight, [[spoiler: although in the end Rodrigo is not the real threat.
