** Edward [[spoiler:is going home to England with a daughter, his future is secure, the Assassins have taken his hideout as their new base and possess the Crystal Skull, and the Caribbean Templars have been wiped out. However, almost everyone Edward has loved has either died or he will never see him again, his wife died while he was away making his quest for his fortune a ShaggyDogStory, and the Golden Age of Piracy has come to its end. Additionally, anyone who has played ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'' and/or read the ExpandedUniverse novels knows that Edward will die ignominiously, and his son will become a Templar and undo most all of Edward's work in the new world.]]

* BettyAndVeronica: Edward is the Archie to ''four'' different women. Going from most "Betty" to most "Veronica" they are Tessa Stephenson-Oakley, Caroline Scott, Anne Bonny, and Mary Read. [[spoiler: Caroline and Tessa end up his first and second wives respectively.]]



* BittersweetEnding:
** [[ForegoneConclusion Anyone who's played]] ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'' and/or read the ExpandedUniverse novels knows that, regardless of Edward's success as a pirate, he dies ignominiously and his son, whom he raises as an Assassin, becomes a Templar.
** Within the game's story, Edward succeeds at his goal of finding the Observatory and stopping the Templars from using it, but loses nearly everyone he is ever close to during his career as a pirate.
** Edward's first wife, Caroline, [[spoiler:is revealed at the end to have died a long time ago, but leaves him a daughter]].
** In the modern-day story, the Templars [[spoiler:gain access to the location of the Observatory]] through your efforts, exactly as the Sage predicts, although the internal memos you can read show that it may be of limited use given that TechMarchesOn. Perhaps more importantly, they now have access to the Sage's DNA, and through him, [[spoiler:genuine First Civilization DNA]].

** In the modern-day story, [[spoiler:John Standish is dead, Juno is still a non-threat without a body, the analyst PlayerCharacter is alive, and the Assassins have a lot of valuable data on Abstergo. On the other hand the analyst now knows they are in constant danger of Abstergo locking them up whenever they see fit, there's the chance they'll be found out about their plots with Standish and the Assassins, the Templars [[spoiler:gain access to have the location of the Observatory]] Observatory now, and all of the analyst's hard work is being rewarded with the knowledge the adventures they lived through your efforts, exactly are being [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] into a cheesy video game to serve as the Sage predicts, although the internal memos you can read show that it may be of limited use given that TechMarchesOn.

** During the mission to assassinate [[spoiler:Prins]], in the subsequent cutscene [[spoiler:Roberts]] shoots the alarm bell to summon guards, even if you had previously disabled the bell. A bit forgivable though as the gunshot probably would have done the trick by itself to alert the guards even if the bell didn't.

** You can accept Assassin contracts before actually making contact with the leadership, where you're told about contracts. You can also complete the Templar sidequests where you work alongside the Assassins before the same point, yet the Assassins will know who you are.

* NeverTrustATrailer: More like "Never Trust a Gameplay Preview." With the attack on Blackbeard's party, the preview video and the actual gameplay differ significantly, including a different opening cutscene and the trail being much less wild. It is highly likely that the trailer footage comes from the PS4/One version gameplay, as the comparatively limited graphical power of the [=PS3=]/360 probably could not keep up with the rendering of such high-definition details.
