** [[spoiler:The heroine of the game is based on the real life WW2 spy Violette Sbazo, who completed a few missions successfully only to be later captured by the Nazis. She was tortured, raped, starved and eventually executed]].

* PaintedOnPants: A few missions in Violet abandons her bomber jacket and jeans in favor of a more contemporary ensemble that wouldn't be out of place in ''DangerGirl''. It's a bit more... flattering to her figure, but still tasteful and functional. The tight leather pants seem like they were molded into the perfect shape of her butt.

It follows female British spy Violette Summer ([[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory based on real life secret agent]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violette_Szabo Violette Szabo]]) during [[WorldWar2 WWII]]. The game begins with Violette comatose in the hospital bed of a small village in France, where the player relives her past missions through France, Germany and Poland via flashbacks leading up to the point where she was hospitalized. Every so often you are shown glimpses of the present, where two doctors at her bedside are shown arguing whether to keep her on life support, kill her to save her from being tortured if she is discovered, or give her over to the [[NaziGermany Schutzstaffel]] to save the village from torture.

* FemmeFataleSpy: Surprisingly [[AvertedTrope averted]]; Violette never uses her considerable feminine wiles on her missions, preferring the more direct method of stabbing Nazis through the skull. Even the [[ArtificialStupidity dimwitted guards in this game]] can't be fooled into thinking that a well-armed British woman snuck onto their turf just to look for a good time.

** This game takes place before real life Sbazo executed her first mission. Sbazo was active in 1944, only in France. Velvet Assassin takes place not only in France, but Poland and Germany itself, in 1943, during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and Operation Gomorrah. Velvet Assassin does not at all follow the spy its based off of.

Added DiffLines:

* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys: An overconfident Waffen S.S. soldier refers to the French in this manner. A more experienced soldier tells him that he's obviously a rookie who has no idea what he's talking about, and that if he doesn't change his attitude he'll just get himself killed.
