** A number of his fans argue that Connor is a flawed and human character and is being held to a DoubleStandard when critics say that the character is bland and then cite many character flaws which indicate complexity. Once AssassinsCreedUnity came out many of these critics reversed their stances, coming down much more harshly on Arno for being such a downgrade from Connor that [[WeWantOurJerkBack he became]] RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap for many of them. Compared to Arno who was seen as a lazy attempt to ape the super-popular Ezio but with none of the likeability, at least Connor had an original personality.

** Haytham gets this a lot too. Most people agrees that he's [[BadAss pretty badass]] and does steal the show, but there's a divide between those who think he's more of a hero than Connor is and his views are [[StrawmanHasAPoint much more sensible]], and those who think he's just another self-serving Templar making a power grab, even if he is [[EvilIsCool good at it.]]

** In the modern times arc, the [[spoiler:[[StormingTheCastle storming the Abstergo headquarter in Rome]]]] level tends to be the favorite, due to not only Desmond Miles [[TookAlevelInbadass taking a level in badass]], but also because you finally [[spoiler: kills Dr. Widic, and gets the chance to use a modern gun]].

** [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Assasssin]] [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations recruits]] no longer suffer a FinalDeath, but are instead knocked out of commission for a decent chunk of time. Additionally, the Assassin's Guild now gets XP each time they are successfully summoned in combat in addition to simply going on missions, encouraging players to call them more often. It doesn't hurt that the first recruit you pick up, [[CanadaEh Stephane Chapheau]], plays a notable role in the story and is a total {{Badass}}.

Added DiffLines:

* RonTheDeathEater: In accordance with the DracoInLeatherPants above, Haytham fans tend to paint Connor in the worst possible light (mostly for being a WideEyedIdealist), making ''him'' out to be the villain.

** The announcement poster for ''Tyranny of King Washington'' became quite memetic as well, it's the trope image for AlternateHistory and often shows up in other contexts with different politicians grouped there.

** The setting has also split the fans between those who love it, those who think there were more interesting conflicts going on (the idea of setting it in the Napoleonic Wars crops up a lot from them), and those who think that the American setting is great but would have preferred it to be later down the line (such as in the Civil War era) so that there would be more buildings to run around on, ala ''[=AC2=]''.

** Connor (see AlternativeCharacterInterpretation for elaboration). It doesn't help that some are unhappy that he supplanted [[EnsembleDarkhorse Haytham]] as the playable character, or that he's such a dramatic change in personality from Ezio.

* CompleteMonster: Reginald Birch who appears in [[SmallRoleBigImpact only two scenes of the game,]] [[GreaterScopeVillain but sets the story by sending Haytham to the American Colonies]] qualifies. He appears much more in the novel ''Literature/AssassinsCreedForsaken'' and has a [[BigBad bigger]] [[EvilMentor role]] in Haytham's storyline but see [[YMMV/AssassinsCreedForsaken that page]] for more details

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some of the critics who liked the setting and character feel this, that it had the best plot of the series and richest characterization but was hankered down by poor mission design, and weak integration of different gameplay mechanics as well as several bugs which came because of its ObviousBeta new AnvilNext engine.
