** 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."

* 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.

* ArmorOfInvincibility: There are two, the Armor of Ishak Pasha (obtained by finding all ten of Ishak Pasha's memoir pages and completing a free-run mission) and the Master Assassin Armor (obtained by completing the first parts of all the Master Assassin missions). Both are unbreakable and provide the maximum health bonus. The former can also deflect bullets, weakens bombs and makes guards more likely to flee, while the latter allows Ezio to sprint completely silently and pretty much breaks the game's remaining difficulty in half because [[DiscOneNuke it can be acquired from Sequence 2 onwards]].

** Ram your sword into your opponent's face, give the handle a hefty slap so ''the entire head is twisted around 360°'' on its neck, then pull the sword out and let the corpse drop dead.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Desmond manages to restore his sanity, but Ezio's quest to find Altaïr's library ultimately ends up accomplishing nothing. (Well, not exactly nothing; he accepts his role as a conduit through which Those Who Came Before can address Desmond, after which he goes on to finally settle down with Sofia.) Oh, and a solar flare is going to destroy the universe unless Desmond and company can open the Grand Temple in time]].

* AnticlimaxBoss: [[invoked]]Unlike in the previous games, there is no climactic duel at the end with the BigBad. [[spoiler: Prince Ahmet]] in Ezio's story gets killed in a cutscene by a supporting character, while [[spoiler: Abbas]] in Altaïr's story is killed in [[spoiler: one shot by the Hidden Gun]]. The penultimate boss, Manuel Palaiologos, is also rather easy, dying to a single Counter Kill.

* 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]].

* FireKeepsItDead: This was the only way [[spoiler: Altaïr could prove that he actually killed Al Mualim instead of just a dupe created by [[MacGuffin the Piece of Eden]]]]. Abbas was displeased with this action, as it was in violation of Assassin tradition; then again, just about everything about Altaïr displeases him.

* GoodAllAlong: Subject 16 early on displays a few hints that he might try to take over Desmond's body. Then he outright asks to be carried out of the Animus and given a new body. Then he takes it incredibly well when Desmond says no and, at the end, [[spoiler: performs a HeroicSacrifice to throw Desmond back in Ezio's memories and save him from deletion]].

* HostageForMacGuffin: [[spoiler: Prince Ahmet kidnaps Sofia and threatens to kill her unless Ezio gives him the Keys he's spent the entire game collecting]]. This despite the fact that Ezio specifically anticipates such a ploy and arranges for protection on the hostage in question -- sadly, it isn't enough.
* AHouseDivided: Altaïr's story involves what amounts to a civil war between him and Abbas Sofian, an Assassin who has had it out for him ever since they were teenagers, [[spoiler: who [[TheStarscream usurps his position]] while Altaïr is away from Masyaf]].

** The whole conflict as a whole has this if you bother to examine it. First, the Ottomans are warmongers, especially the Janissaries, who bully smaller countries and are responsible for many of the Templar Agents that Ezio kill, especally Vali cel Tradat, who was an Wallachian ex-Assassin and admired Vlad Dracul for protecting their country, and Shahkulu, who came from a village the Ottomans razed and was raised by the Templars. 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. The Janissaries don't want Ahmet on the throne because he's a pacifist, and they want Selim on the throne so he can lead them in a holy war against the other nations. Ahmet himself, [[spoiler: while the Big Bad behind the Byzantine Templars, is nothing like the Borgias and wants to find the Grand Temple to [[WellIntentionedExtremist destroy the divisions between men, follows the original Templar doctrine]], and actually puts up a good ShutUpKirk speech to Ezio. But Ezio, who only fought and interacted with Templars like the Borgias, couldn't make peace with Ahmet. This leads in to the ''ACIII'' plot, where the fact that Assassins aren't exactly the good guys is once again highlighted]].

** 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 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]].

* PoorCommunicationKills: At the request of Prince Suleiman, Ezio [[spoiler: assassinates Tarik Barleti, who had secretly been working against the Templars]].

* YouAllShareMyStory: There is a single key moment in history that links Altaïr, Ezio, and Desmond together, which is called a Synch Nexus. Finding that moment is the key to freeing Desmond from the Animus. [[spoiler: It ends up being the moment right after Ezio discovers the Apple Altaïr left for him, a few feet from where Altaïr laid himself to rest. Ezio calls Desmond by name and provides a direct link between Desmond and the Apple that allows Those Who Came Before to communicate with Desmond directly across time, and gives him the MindScrewdriver he needs to wake up]].
