** The Assassination of Rouille is less extraordinary than most, but one notable element stands out. Arno needs to stop some snipers: he achieves this by ''lighting their watch tower on fire''.
** Assassinating Le Peletier. After stealing some poison wine, Arno bribes some window cleaners for a hilariously easy shortcut straight to the dining room, whereupon he has the wine replaced. Le Peletier stumbles into the back room before Arno stabs him, and he leaves without any trouble at all.

* Jacques de Molay's [[NoNameGiven nameless advisor]] in the Helix scenario you play before Bishop steps in. The Grand Master sends him to hide the Sword of Eden and Codex Pater Intellectus where future generations of Templars can discover it, and [[{{Determinator}} he sees it through]]. Drawbridge goes up before he can get there? He's got LeParkour skills to find a different way in. Thomas de Carneillon steals the blade and book? The knight - who was just discussing the Brotherhood with de Molay, so he ''knows'' what Assassins can do - charges after him without hesitation.
** Thomas gets enough of a lead to duck around a corner and try to assassinate him from his blind spot. The knight manages to [[BarehandedBladeBlock hold back his Hidden Blade]] and force him into open combat, then beats him down until he drops the Sword of Eden. [[ShockAndAwe Thomas didn't stand a chance after that]].
** To his credit, Thomas didn't exactly stay down after taking a ''blast of lightning from an Isu weapon''. As soon as the knight comes out of the temple, Thomas puts a Hidden Blade in his chest.

* Meta: The gameís model of the Notre Dame Cathedral is so detailed that it was tapped as a visual aid for the Cathedralís restoration after it was badly damaged in a fire five years after the gameís release.


* The player can pull this off in the final memory. Arno observes, while trying to think of a way into the temple, that "Germain's built himself quite a fortress" - no weak points to exploit. The optional objectives are a pair of sabatoged alarm bells and some double air assassinations. Which means that it's not entirely difficult to locate Germain via the "[[ConspicuouslyPublicAssassination Leventine approach]]" ''and'' get full sync. And since the mission objective is "'''Find''' Germain", indicating that Arno didn't know where he was, this in turn means that Arno could have ''canonically'' located Germain ''with the Leventine approach.''

** The one in the demo carried over to the main game, the assassination of La Sivert. What does he do? He steals the keys to the Notre Dame, sets up a confession with his target, and manages to kill La Sivert while confessing everything to him. And because no alarms were rung for full sync, he escaped without anyone being the wiser.

Added DiffLines:

***A player can even set up a BondOneLiner with timing, because La Sivert, thinking Arno is a fellow Templar, asks 'What's [his] cut?" And is surprisingly hard not to say "''This.''" And take the QuickTimeEvent to bury the Hidden Blade in his skull.

** The Belle Epoque mission. It's amazing to see Paris 100 years after the Revolution, to see it survive the violence and bloodshed and witness the Golden Age of Impressionism, Art Nouveau and then see the Eiffel Tower with all the Balloons and then finally we see Lady Liberty just as she's being built as a gift to America and New York.

* The whole Time Anomalies Feature. How do you show famous monuments that they couldn't cover otherwise and satisfy fan demands for a World-War II/Modern Day AC, while still keeping it consistent with the design metaphor of the Animus and Modern Day story? You go nuts, that's how:

You go nuts, that's how:how. Every now and then, Abstergo will wise up to you digging in Arno's memories, and as a result will try to purge you from the system. The Assassins then boot you off to a server bridge of incomplete memories, and being incomplete, [[EldritchLocation strange things happen all around]]. Epic platforming ensues.


* For a series that has never been a stranger to insanity, from flying a glider across Venice, a fistfight with the Pope in the Sistine Chapel, a boss-fight with an AxCrazy George Washington over a Pyramid, a full Pirate game, you would think the developers have pretty much mined the field. Nope, in-comes reality-warping gameplay, that sends a French Revolutionary to scale the Eiffel Tower and fire Machine guns at Nazi planes.
