* NiceJobBreakingHero: The Assassins back the Ottoman Empire to gain an ally in fighting the Borgia Papacy. This has unintended consequences as *many* Templar agents are recruited from countries the Ottomans proceed to invade and conquer. The Count (aka [[UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler Vlad Tepes]]) allies with the Templars in order to defend his homeland, and is promptly murdered by Ishak Pasha, an Assassin. As a result, the Sentinel betrays and murders many of his former comrades for selling out his homeland. The Renegade fights to avenge his murdered tribe as Manuel's bodyguard. The Vanguard likewise seeks to defend her homeland from Turk conquest.

* NoSell: A rare heroic example. When [[spoiler: the Assassins under Abbas try to use Assassinations on Altaïr, it only hurts him, but doesn't OneHitKill him like when he does it to others]].
** Another one: [[spoiler: The Renegade actually interrupts his own eulogy to come back to life and start strangling Ezio. Ezio stabs him again, and the guy just laughs crazily and gets back up]].

** Causing an explosion in the underground city of Cappacodia, causing half the city's population to choke to death from the smoke and fire, killing many innocents. Ezio was not shown to even care in the slightest about the collateral damage, instead fixing his mind on the Masyaf keys and his love interest.

* SerialEscalation: Downplayed in two ways.
** The first: in ''Brotherhood', Assassin recruits could go on contract missions throughout different cities for XP/loot/etc, generally making them stronger but we never saw any other returns/effects. In ''Revelations'', the Mediterranean Defense allows us to do all that again, but now we see their full effects: you can weaken Templar control of 12 [[note]]13, if one is unlocked during multiplayer[[/note]] nearby cities by doing missions, as well as bring them under Assassin control to provide money/XP/crafting ingredients, improve the lives of it's citizens, and so forth.
** The second: in ''Brotherhood'', Ezio could only have control of 12 Assassin recruits period. In ''Revelations'', if one takes the time to properly manage Mediterranean Defense, you can assign up-to-five recruits to each city to help keep the control better - taking control of all cities/assigning recruits to them allows Ezio to technically command up to 72 Assassin recruits [[note]]77, if the multiplayer city is unlocked[[/note]]. He can still directly command only 12 in Constantinople, the seven Master Assassins included, yet that's a step up from the situation in Rome.



* SwissArmyWeapon: In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'', Ezio's hidden blade got attachments for a thin poison needle and a pistol alongside the usual stabbing blade. In ''Revelations'' the hookblade is added, useful for ziplining, faster climbing, all new fatalities, and [[MundaneUtility picking flowers]]!

* FakeLongevity: The "Scholar" achievement. It's not uncommon to have collected every treasure, data fragment and got full synch before you have the roughly 500,000 Akçe needed to buy all the game's books.

Though if you abuse the bomb buy-back mechanic (see GameBreaker in YMMV tab), [[SubvertedTrope then it might not actually take ''that'' long.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: Abbas appeared as early as the very first memory sequence of the original game, but was unimportant to the story. Then in ''Revelations'' he gets a backstory, more extensive characterization, and even [[spoiler: becomes the BigBad of Altair's part of the story]].

** Remember that trick in the previous games where you could poison someone, draw a crowd and then poison someone else to start an impromptu moshpit? Guess what the achievement is called for poisoning 10 guards at once.

In Ezio's storyline, Ezio travels abroad to explore Constantinople at the height of the Ottoman Empire, where an increasing number of Templars threatens to destabilize the region, and a lot of information about the {{Precursor}} society is revealed. As part of his mission in Constantinople, Ezio must collect a series of discs. Contact with these discs allows Ezio to relive some of Altaïr's memories (creating an ''{{Inception}}''-like memory-within-a-memory for Desmond). The Altaïr memories fill in gaps in his story from before, during, and after the events of the first game.

** Since the game's creators has confirmed an {{Inception}} angle, Desmond beginning the game by waking up on a beach in a constructed world plays out like this.

Added DiffLines:

* StealthyMook: The Stalkers try to approach Ezio in the crowd undetected and stab him InTheBack, dealing serious damage, before escaping. The only defense is to pay attention to ominous background sound effects that play when a Stalker is near and using Ezio's Eagle Vision to spot them in the crowd.

* VocalDissonance: Despite the fact that Altaïr is well into his 90's by the end of ''Revelations'', he stills sounds exactly the same as his 20-year-old self- he does not sound any raspier or gruff. Chalk it up to production oversight.
