Trivia: Assassin's Creed

  • Big Name Fan:
    • Hideo Kojima is such a huge fan of the entire series that he's put at least two major references to it in his last two Metal Gear games: Alta´r's outfit in Metal Gear Solid 4 and the hay pile in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
    • Also, MGS Raiden is an unlockable costume in Brotherhood.
    • Also in Brotherhood, when you first meet Leonardo you get a mission to find out where a noise is coming from. After going down some stairs you find a cardboard box in a corner.
  • Cash Cow Franchise: Ubisoft is doing this series every year along with many spinoffs, comic books, and maybe even kids toys.
  • Celebrity Voice Actor: Mostly averted. The only celebrity voice actors usually only show up in the "Modern Day" settings of the series, and even then, once Kristen Bell left (perhaps not coincidentally after her mainstream breakout role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall), the celebrities are probably only recognizable to Star Trek fans (John De Lancie) or fans of British humorists (Danny Wallace).
    • As time has gone on, more recognizable celebrity voices have started to show up, but not there still has yet to be any A-level celebrity guest voices in the series.
  • Fandom Nod: Brotherhood has one early on in regards to being able to relive memories, which was in 1, but absent in 2. When Desmond is talking to Rebecca about new features, Shaun pipes up with "Is he gonna be able to relive memories this time?"
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Faffing About Creed, thanks to Yahtzee. Also, Ass-Creed, probably not also courtesy Yahtzee, but his use of it in the review of the sequel has greatly popularized it.
    • Ass Creed Bro or AssBros for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.
    • For Black Flag, it's Pirate's Creed or Grand Theft Man O'War
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
    • Kristen Bell voices Lucy Stillman, Vidic's lab assistant who operates the animus, and is a member of the same group of assassins that Alta´r was a part of. Desmond is voiced by Nolan North, who in turn is voiced by Nolan North's dub seiyuu Hiroki Tochi.
    • And for anime fans, in Japanese dub Alta´r is voiced by Katsuyuki Konishi aka Kamina (noticeably audible here).
    • Desmond and Lucy's Italian actors are respectively Sasuke and Tenten.
    • And for any Quebecers (where the game is from), the voice of Garnier de Naplouse (Hubert Fielden) is the French-Canadian dub voice for Dumbledore Playing Against Type (you may have recognized him as the Old Man in Prince of Persia Warrior Within). But there is more!
    • For anyone (re)playing this game after the sequels, the Rafiq in Damascus and some of the generic citizens have the same voice actor as Leonardo.
    • Arthur Holden (Mr. Ratburn) is Sibrand.
    • Any British comedy fans playing the first Assassin's Creed might've heard the distinctive voice of Josie Lawrence.
    • The german Connor still defends freedom during WWII as Captain America: The First Avenger.
    • Federico Auditore was voiced by Scipio (Elias Toufexis). Meanwhile, Anna (Liane Balaban) voiced Lucrezia Borgia in Brotherhood.
