* ContestWinnerCameo: At several moments during the game, you may notice a female singer oohing and aahing along with the main theme in certain emotionally charged situations, such as when [[spoiler: Alta´r talks in the Black Room with Abbas, whom he has just shot]]. She was chosen by a contest hosted by Ujam.com, judged by HansZimmer and two other members of the Franchise/AssassinsCreed dev team.
* FanNickname: Leandros is more commonly known as "Evil Bald Guy With A Cape," thanks to {{Tobuscus}}' literal trailer, which pegs him as, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin an evil bald guy with a cape]].
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Suleiman sounds a lot like Malik.
** Shao Jun is both Ezio's sister and his daughter ([[TalkingToHimself and speaks to the latter]]).
** One of Leandros' men sounds like [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood Cesare Borgia]].
** The Assassin Recruit you pick up in the side mission The Brawler is voiced by Tom Curry, most well known for voicing [[Franchise/DragonAge Zevran Arainai]]- an assassin in his own right.
** A lot of the people Alta´r saved from guards in the first game have their voices show up here, especially the women Ezio saves who join the order.
* TheOtherDarrin:
** Alta´r's voice now has a more fitting accent, curtesy of Cas Anvar.
** Played straight with the protagonists for the Russian version. The previous games seemed to have either used the same VA for Desmond, Ezio and Alta´r or exceptionally similarly sounding ones. This game is the first where you can honestly say that they are voiced by different actors.
** played with in the german version: Altair now has another actor (the same voice as Ezio) but still doesn┤t speak with an accent.
** Also played straight in the North American version with Subject 16, who is now voiced by Graham Cuthbertson, rather than Creator/CamClarke, who portrayed him in ACII and Brotherhood.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: ''Revelations'' originally began development for the Nintendo3DS under the name ''Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy'' in 2010, but was instead turned into a console/PC game when the game proved to be too large for the 3DS to handle. A reference to the original "Lost Legacy" name is still present in the game as the name of one of the final missions.
