** [[spoiler: Germain's death]] looks unpleasent enough. Now see Arno with the face glitch savoring the moment as he slowly shoves his blade into Germains throat. Sweet dreems.

* The [[spoiler:prologue of Jacques de Molay]]'s death is pretty spooky. Especially when he gets burnt at the stake and curses the King who watches him die with sadistic satisfaction with his cold GrayEyes. The shot of his eyes with the burning flames reflecting is especially spooky.

* Remember John from IV? That descendant of Aita who [[spoiler: died trying to use the research analyst in Black Flag as a vessel for Juno]]? He's received the same treatment as Desmond Miles, and [[spoiler: is being used by Abstergo to find ''other'' Sages in order to unlock the Precursor genome to unlock even more Pieces of Eden]].

** When de Molay was captured, the unnamed playable character was distracted by the sight, and [[spoiler:[[JumpScare assassinated]] by the Assassin he just fought off]], and we have the [[SarcasmMode pleasure]] of seeing it in first person. It's a minor nightmare fuel, but it says a lot. [[spoiler: It gives us a chilling reminder of [[YouBastard what we do to thousands of guards throughout the games]].]]

* At the beginning of "The Jacobin Raid" co-op mission, the cutscene includes a depiction of [[spoiler: Robespierre]]'s beheading. When the same fate befalls [[spoiler: King Louis XVI]] in a story mission, we see it from far away, so it's not that disturbing. The same can't be said for [[spoiler: Robespierre]]. We're treated to a nice extended close-up of his severed, mutilated head being held up, complete with facial wounds, a lolling jaw, and disturbingly realistic-looking eyes rolled back in their sockets.

* From the Rift Data, one of Juno's rants implies that Clay and Desmond are in some way still "alive"... and stuck in The Grey with her. Bad enough their deaths were pretty horrific (and brought about by Juno's own manipulations), but the thought that even ''after'' they've died, they still don't get release...

* The bug that randomly removes character faces and leaves only their eyes, hair and mouths. For players who dodged being spoiled concerning the bugs, it's a shocking first experience to show just how utterly Ubisoft's QA team screwed up.

It's Napoleon "motherfucking" Bonaparte who coldly keeps his subordinates in his place, burns a pack of rats with oil cooly and gives an epic StartOfDarkness speech.

--> '''Napoleon''': "I know the human animal. What you fear, what you love? Is Rose a bad man? Undoubtedly. But I, Napoleon, can control him and turn him to what's best for France. The masses will gladly renounce their freedom if all can entertain the hope of rising to the top. With the artifact inside the temple, I will bring them the illusion of hope. And I will lead us to glory."
