** The main idea of a secret society unleashing the Revolution as a StagedPopulistUprising is derived from the book ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memoirs_Illustrating_the_History_of_Jacobinism Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism]]'' by Abbé Augustin Barruel who blamed UsefulNotes/TheEnlightenment as a malign and foreign influence on France. In Barruel's belief, the people of France did not want democracy and were forced to be free against their will by evil secret societies. This book influenced several 19th Century accounts of the Revolution and was a TropeCodifier for TheIlluminati trope which was also derived from the same era, as did the "Jacques de Molay, you are avenged" meme and the idea of the King's death being revenge for ThePurge of TheKnightsTemplar.

** One issue of this simplification is that it removes several vital aspects of famous historical figures, widely documented ones. Napoleon is shown speaking in an upper-class English accent when in real-life he spoke French with a thick Corsican accent, since it was far from being his first language [[note]]It sounded like an Italian speaking French and Tsar Alexander famously stated that ''he'' spoke better French than him[[/note]]. One reason why his rise to power was so shocking was that he was an outsider to French society, indeed subject to racist mockery for his accent as a student and only got the opportunity for advancement thanks to the Revolution. This is {{lampshaded}} in the Side Story "A Romantic Stroll" where Josephine comments on Napoleon's exotic accent which to our ears sounds no different than hers or anybody else's.

** The Revolutionary Templars on the other hand have crime bosses, disaffected honest bureaucrats, sans-cullotes and artisans. Their leader, following Jacques de Molay sees the Revolution and its excesses as a complicated BatmanGambit to usher in violent revolution to destroy the old order in place of a new one, [[spoiler:and events such as the September Massacres and the ReignOfTerror was to give people such an impression that DemocracyIsBad that people think twice about revolting in the future and overturn the Templar order in turn]].

* ChangedMyMindKid: Arno spends the entire game doing an errand for Marquis de Sade so that he can find safe passage out of France. He is thoroughly bitter and disappointed after the Revolution [[spoiler:and Élise's death. Butt through his friendship with Leon, he discovers his old idealism and ultimately returns de Sade's coin along with his manuscript with the Marquis giving a smile of happiness that his friend is back]].
* DarkerAndEdgier: The Unity DLC ''Dead Kings'' is described by WordOfGod as being the darkest story told in the franchise yet, and St. Denis has a much darker feel compared to Paris, being constantly covered under fog, with much of the action set in claustrophobic catacbombs filled with rats. Then there's the general spookiness of [[spoiler:the First Civilization Architecture. However, it is much more light-hearted than ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'' or ''[[VideoGames/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag Freedom Cry]] and the story as a whole is about how Arno gets out of his funk after Élise's death]].

* DecompositeCharacter: In the case of UsefulNotes/MaximilienRobespierre. In addition to the historical version of the character who appears briefly, fictional characters Aloys la Touche and Pierre Bellec also share aspects with his personality.
** La Touche who sports glasses has a greater visual resemblance than the game's version of Robespierre, his background as a simple, honest clerk driven to extremism by his opposition to corruption mirrors Robespierre's political trajectory. When Arno comes to assassinate La Touche, the latter quotes Robespierre's notorious speech describing terror as "nothing but justice: prompt, severe and inflexible".
** Pierre Bellec's call for political engagement with the events and his willingness to [[spoiler:murder and betray his own friends, also mirrors Robespierre sending his friends to the guillotine when the latter become political enemies. Arno's BrokenPedestal moment with Bellec mirrors the FallenHero status Robespierre was regarded with at the end of his life.]]
