* ButtMonkey: [[spoiler:Duccio de Luca]] comes face to face with Ezio yet again. He just can't seem to escape. At least he doesn't take a beating this time...unless you decide to [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential seek him out and beat him up again]] ([[ButThouMust not that you have much choice about the matter]]; he's marked with a "target" marker that won't disappear unless you beat him up). You even get a trophy/achievement called "Bully" for it.

** 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.

The soldier is the one who gets knocked down, and Ezio continues with his curb-stomping without even pausing to grimace. At ''fifty-two years old.''

Lots of the civilians complain about the Ottoman occupation and are oppressed by the Janissaries. None of that seems to matter to Ezio and the Assassins, who are focused on their war with the Templars and the seeking for the Masyaf Keys.

* GrandTheftMe: 16 asks for Desmond's help with this, getting out of Animus, namely, jumping into Desmond's body at the same time that he does. It sounds more like hitchhiker than a thief but Desmond is creeped out by it and 16 takes it surprisingly well when Desmond denies his request.

* BackToBackBadasses: The box art (the page image) has Ezio and Altaïr in this position, brandishing their Hidden Blades.
* BagOfSpilling: Ezio starts off with just his bare hands, thanks to being captured by the Templars and having his right Hidden Blade broken during the fight. He retrieves his sword and the Hidden Blade with the gun and poison attachments, including the poison dart launcher, soon after escaping imprisonment, though.
** Getting dragged behind a carriage for a few miles is a nice bit of action and a handy way of explaining the damage to the ArmorOfInvincibility he got in the previous game.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Desmond manages to restore his sanity, but Ezio's quest to find Altaïr's library ultimately ends up accomplishing nothing.

Oh, and a solar flare is going to destroy mankind on Earth unless Desmond and company can open the Grand Temple in time]].

* CombatPragmatist: As is traditional for the series, Ezio pulls no punches in combat. In this, he inherits Assassin traditions well from Altaïr, who at [[OldMaster 82]] is not above fighting swords with bullets -- one bullet, to be precise.

Added DiffLines:

** Two examples from when Ezio's ship arrives at Istanbul. First, Ezio says he's sure there will be something in the city that will hold his interest right after being distracted by [[LoveInterest Sofia's]] looks. Second, when Ezio comments on the "student" being full of surprises, the as yet unnamed Suleiman replies "Very few."


Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticVillainy: Assassin Dens that are taken by Byzantines can be recovered largely intact, as they intend to keep the dens and so it would be counterproductive to damage them.

* BadassGrandpa:
** Ezio Auditore. In ''WesternAnimation/AssassinsCreedEmbers'' (a short film released along with ''Revelations'' and set roughly ten years after it), he shows that he can still wield a blade, despite having finally settled down with a wife and two children.
** Altaïr. Despite being too old to free-run, he still takes Masyaf back from the usurper Abbas by force at the age of 82. And all you have to do is disarm them. Then they join you. Essentially, he's so badass he scolds an army of deadly killers into joining him.
