* CassandraTruth: [[spoiler: Project Phoenix]] is based on one. As it turns out, Rosalind Franklin's initial findings about Triple Helix DNA, which was quickly dismissed once Crick and Watson found the Double Helix, are actually [[spoiler: remnants of Precursor DNA left in the human genome]].

* CoolSword: The Precursor artifact in this game is the Sword of Eden, making its debut in the intro. It [[SwordBeam shoots lightning]], is patterned with cool TronLines, and [[spoiler: functions as a short-range teleporter when Germain uses it in the end, as well as possibly giving him his own Eagle Pulse]].

* AdamSmithHatesYourGuts: Medicine is ''very'' expensive, and only becomes more so as the game goes on. By the endgame, a handful of medicine costs several thousand livres.

** Some of the Helix Rift data pages deal with [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag the Observatory]]. Since the 18th century, it's become largely unusable and inaccessible.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelHook: Searching the Helix data reveals Juno is rooting through Abstergo's servers, helped by Aita and the Instruments of the First Will, and they're looking for seventeen somethings to help whatever they're planning.


Added DiffLines:

* InfinityPlusOneSword: The Eagle of Sugar, which is just as powerful as the Sword of Eden, but comes with the additional power of blinding enemies with flashes of light.

** "Ezio's Family" plays at the end of one mission, as Arno escapes the Cour des Miracles.

Added DiffLines:

* TheQueensLatin: Throughout the game, French characters speak with English accents, a conscious choice by the creators because everyone will know that the characters are French by default. However, this extends to Napoleon, despite the fact that the real-life Napoleon was Corsican and never shook off his Italian accent.

Added DiffLines:

** When Bellec is met in the Bastille, he's carved out the same symbols Subject 16 hid in the Animus in ''II''. They also later appear in Germain's memories of when he first had a vision of De Molay.


Added DiffLines:

* InternalRetcon: Abstergo supplies the database entries for Helix, usually leaving out any mention of their activites, and utterly erasing any member of their order who falls out of favour. Shaun takes every opportunity to snark about this he can.


Added DiffLines:

* RiddleForTheAges: Bellec is introduced having carved several glyphs into the Bastille walls, only saying he's sending a message. The game never revisits this, and it's not brought up again, so who Bellec is messaging and why is never said.


Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: The databases have Shaun commenting on the Assassin's victories over the Templars as if it were a game of tennis.

--> '''Vidocq''': Because that stinkin' stupid pig of a policeman doesn't have the stinkin' stupid sense to do anything that might give even a grifter like me, hope that someday...this city might not be a shitty place to live.

** Napoleon is shown as a charismatic MagneticHero and a ManipulativeBastard, which is faithful to the historical record. However, it also has Napoleon criticizing "bloody revolutionaries" and opposing the excesses of the time, while the Side Missions shows some of the Jacobins (such as Saint-Just in a letter) trying to sabotage his career. In the historical record, Napoleon ''was'' a Jacobin at the time of the Revolution[[labelnote:History]]He loyally sided with the beleaguered Republican against Corsican separatist and royalist Paoli, who chased him and his family out of the island(and sent people to burn and loot his house). His connection with Robespierre was well known that he was briefly under house arrest after his downfall and kept out of commission for a full year[[/labelnote]]. Napoleon's first major promotion came from Robespierre's brother and was made possible by the army's reforms during the year of the Terror. Napoleon justified the Terror in several private conversations right unto his exile in Saint Helena and described the Committee of Public Safety as the only real government of the revolution.
