* VideoGameHistoricalRevisionism: Ezio becomes chummy with a number of important Renaissance figures, like LeonardoDaVinci, Niccolò Machiavelli, Caterina Sforza, and Lorenzo de' Medici, and is enemies with a whole bunch of other important figures, like the Pazzi family and Rodrigo Borgia, who becomes [[UsefulNotes/ThePope Pope Alexander VI]] later in life. It's like a Renaissance version of ''OceansEleven''.

The game had a direct sequel, ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'', which commences where the game left off and was then concluded ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations'' which rounded off the Ezio trilogy and the Renaissance Era, with ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'' shifting to a new ancestor and the 18th Century.

* BiographyAClef: Leonardo da Vinci's flying machines is shown and presented as an actual object, and his other inventions would follow suit in ''Brotherhood'', with special explanations provided not only as to why they weren't fully functional but how it didn't end MedievalStasis.

''2'', alongside ''Brotherhood'' and ''Revelations'', were re-relased in November 2016 for 8th generation consoles as part of the "Ezio Collection."

Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: Patrice Desilets mentioned that [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syV2-ZuaxC8 he wanted to make Leonardo da Vinci's homosexuality explicit]] and mention the fact that the real-life Leonardo faced charges for sodomy in Florence, but the producers insisted they remove it. While Leonardo's homosexuality is hinted at in the vanilla game of both ''II'' and ''Brotherhood'', only the optional DLC for ''Brotherhood'' features a direct acknowledgement.

** The fact that Brutes in heavy armor probably about half their body weight can scale building with no efforts is pretty appalling within itself. As well as how a particular Hidden Blade counter-kill has Ezio tossing them away, heavy armor and all.

Though this could be explained in that Ezio's Precursor DNA makes him physically stronger than normal humans (which is apparently canon).

* WellThisIsNotThatTrope: In describing the tragic life of Bianca Riario (Caterina Sforza's daughter), Sean opens this way: "Some people live in a dream[[WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma ,]] Bianca Riario...was not one of those people."

* OneSteveLimit: Also averted with the Biancas, kinda. During the first few sequences of the game a Bianca is mentioned but never seen, then there Bartolomeo's [[ICallItVera Bianca]] and later, in [[DownloadableContent Battle of Forlì]], there's Caterina's daughter Bianca.

** He also realizes that he is a descendant of that one time they did it on top of a tower in Acre, as his memories of Altaïr in that instance end at the moment of conception, and in the realization that he's experiencing ''Maria''[='=]s memory, not Altaïr's.
