Easter eggs are intentional hidden extras found within games that are usually jokes or references. The Assassin's Creed games have their own Easter eggs, and many other games contain Easter eggs related to the series.

Carl JungEdit

Psychologist Carl Jung was referenced throughout the Assassin's Creed series:

Assassin's CreedEdit

JamalEdit

In Assassin's Creed, upon leaving Masyaf for the first time, one of the Assassins in the Kingdom, Jamal, could be silently assassinated with no consequences. However, openly attacking him would prompt the other Assassins to attack Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad.

Jamal was the traitor inside the Order that, along with Masun, opened the gates for the Templar siege of Masyaf. He was originally featured as a mission target to be assassinated, but the mission was cut and he remained as a minor Easter egg.

TransformersEdit

Altair-optimus

Altaïr standing beside "Optimus Prime"

An arrangement of windows seen on certain buildings formed the torso of Optimus Prime, in his vehicle form (a truck) from the Transformers franchise, which could be found in Damascus and sometimes Acre.

Assassin's Creed IIEdit

BatmanEdit

Occasionally in Assassin's Creed II, while freerunning or climbing a building, a male bystander could be heard saying "Another capering crusader." This was a reference to the DC Comics superhero Batman, who used stealth and had a tendency to run on rooftops. As well as this, Batman was sometimes referred to as the "Caped Crusader".

Dummy keysEdit

In the missions "Knowledge Is Power" and "Hunting the Hunter", Ezio Auditore could loot any of the dummy targets and find keys. However, these keys had no effect at all.

Ghosts of the pastEdit

thumb|200px|Ghosts of the Past Ezio was briefly able to see a vision of his entire family. After meeting up with Niccolò Machiavelli, Ezio could return to the Palazzo Auditore and step into the center of the courtyard, where he would enter into a state similar to his Eagle Vision and be able to see the figures of his parents and all of his siblings around the palazzo. However, the vision would disappear and could not be seen again if Ezio left.

Giant squidEdit

Zw-easteregg-2

Ezio about to dodge one of the squid's tentacles

A giant squid could be found within the Assassin Tomb beneath Santa Maria della Visitazione. To find the giant squid, Ezio must pull the lever that activated the swinging poles for progressing further into the tomb, but look down into the water near to the lever for one minute instead.

Once a minute or so had passed, a cutscene played, which showed a large squid swimming by. A second cutscene could then be activated if the lever was pulled once more and Ezio looked down again. Following this, the cutscene showed Ezio narrowly dodging one of the squid's tentacles before it swam away.

Mario AuditoreEdit

200px|thumb|Mario greeting Ezio When Ezio first met his uncle, Mario Auditore, he said the phrase "It's-a-me! Mario!," to the young Florentine, which was a reference to the Super Mario Brothers franchise.

MotownEdit

When throwing coins amongst the crowd, female bystanders would sometimes cry "Money! That's what I want!", which was a reference to the classic Motown song.

Palazzo DucaleEdit

thumb|200px|Palazzo Ducale easter egg After using the "Super jump" or "Fence glitch" to get into the Palazzo Ducale di Venezia, Ezio could access the Doge's quarters where Carlo Grimaldi assassinated the Doge. The candle that Carlo Grimaldi and Doge Mocenigo were playing under was unlit, but the chess pieces were in exactly the same position, though Ezio assassinated Grimaldi years ago.

After going into these quarters, the sky and the building turned a blood red. However, this might not have been intentional, but accidental, as scenery lightened or darkened when entering other buildings such as the Villa Auditore, to match the interior of that building. In this case, the tone was changed to orange or red to match the interior of the specific room, and so the outside scenery and sky changed to orange and red respectively.

Assassin's Creed: BrotherhoodEdit

Castle CrashersEdit

The first memory in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood near to the Castel Sant'Angelo was called "Castello Crasher." This was a reference to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (And later, PC) downloadable game, Castle Crashers.

Grand Theft AutoEdit

The achievement Grand Theft Dressage was a clear reference to the Grand Theft Auto game series.

Machiavelli's worksEdit

Shortly after Ezio successfully enlisted the help of the three other faction guilds, Niccolò Machiavelli asked Ezio how he had managed it. Ezio simply answered that it was "Virtù", a concept about the spirit of leadership that Machiavelli was later known to have theorized. Also, at the end of Sequence 7, Machiavelli stated "I intend to write a book about you one day." to Ezio, who responded with "If you do, make it short." This was clearly a reference to Machiavelli's famous (and brief) book, "The Prince."

Finally, an achievement entitled Il Principe (which translated to "The Prince") could be unlocked by achieving 100% synchronization for all of the memories in Brotherhood, including the ones included within The Da Vinci Disappearance downloadable content.

Mario referencesEdit

In the mission Femme Fatale, after Ezio killed all of the guards and dragged Lucrezia Borgia towards Caterina Sforza's cell, she commented "Rescuing princesses from castles now?" This was a reference to the Super Mario Bros. games, where main protagonist Mario rescued Princess Peach from antagonist Bowser's castle.

Accompanying this, one of the Brotherhood achievements was entitled Principessa in Another Castello. This translated to "Princess in another castle," which was told to Mario in the original Mario games whenever he defeated Bowser's minions in their castles.

Another Mario reference was the achievement Plumber, which showed the picture of a Mario world Warp Pipe.

Metal Gear SolidEdit

Just before reuniting with Leonardo da Vinci, Ezio came across an anachronistic factory-made cardboard box, though he looked away when Leonardo came around the corner. This was a reference to the Metal Gear Solid series, as the signature stealth move of Solid Snake (the series' protagonist) was to hide in a box or crate.

A second tribute was the Raiden suit, available to those who had completed every challenge in the Animus Virtual Training Program with at least a bronze medal, a reference to how the character Raiden was trained in only virtual simulations.

MontrealEdit

During the memory "Trojan Horse," while escorting Bartolomeo d'Alviano and his mercenaries disguised as French soldiers, a French guard asked Ezio Auditore as to which region of France he hailed from, to which he replied "Montréal." This was likely a reference to the location of Ubisoft Montreal, the main developers of the Assassin's Creed series.

Montreal was also the largest city in the French-speaking province of Quebec in Canada. Alternatively, it could be a reference to the birthplace of Francisco Randez – the model after whom Desmond Miles was designed.

Project LegacyEdit

On Lucy Stillman's computer monitors in the Sanctuary, the Memories menu of Assassin's Creed: Project Legacy was displayed, set to the memories of Mario Auditore.

Red footprintsEdit

If Desmond went out to the front of the Villa Auditore and used Eagle Vision, there were a number of red footprints that could be seen which led up to the Assassins' insignia.

Various developers have stated that this was to lead the audience to where they needed to go, as some players weren't sure on what to do towards the start of the game. However, as red was supposed to signify something undesirable in Eagle Vision, it led to some confusion on the subject. As such, the developers have stated that the color of the footprints was an oversight, resolving the issue.

Assassin's Creed: RevelationsEdit

Hello WorldEdit

In the very first sequence, Subject 16 talked to Desmond Miles about the place in the Animus that he was currently in, Animus Island, stating that it was the test world first created by Rebecca Crane to gain a feeling for the confines of the machine.

Afterwards, he proclaimed "Hello World!", which was a reference to the common test program named a Hello World project. This project was often used to familiarize a programmer with the basics of a programming language.

James BondEdit

The second memory of Sequence 7 in Revelations is titled "The Spy Who Shunned Me." This is a reference to the James Bond film, "The Spy Who Loved Me."

Lingering enemyEdit

In the first memory of Altaïr in Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Jamal could be seen, again viewed in red when in Eagle Vision. This first occurred in the original game, Assassin's Creed.

Monty PythonEdit

In the memory The Brawler, after having been defeated three times in a row, the encountered citizen said "Ah... we will call it a draw, alright?" This was a reference to the movie Monty Python And The Holy Grail, in which the Black Knight challenged King Arthur to a sword fight. After both his arms and legs were cut off and still refusing to give up, the Black Knight said "Alright. We'll call it a draw."

Muhammad AliEdit

Sometimes during fighting or after defeating guards, civilians yelled "Floats like a butterfly, stings like a scorpion!" This line also occurred when random civilians wanted to fistfight Ezio. As such, the line was a reference to the famous boxer, Muhammad Ali, who described his fighting style as "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."

Spider-ManEdit

There was an achievement entitled Spider Assassin, in which Ezio had to climb the top of the Hagia Sophia in under 25 seconds. The title and achievement was a reference to the popular Marvel Comics' superhero Spider-Man and his ability to scale up and around buildings with incredible speed.

SupermanEdit

One title in the second stage of the Animi Training Program was "Man of Steel". This was an obvious reference to DC Comics' hero, Superman, as his nickname was known as the Man of Steel.

Assassin's Creed IIIEdit

Alice in WonderlandEdit

As the Grand Temple opens, Shaun says "In another moment, down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again," which is a line from the chapter "Down the Rabbit Hole" from the book Alice In Wonderland.

Animi AvatarsEdit

In the virtual map of Northwest Passage, there existed two hidden paintings of Animi Avatars from former games: the Nobleman and the Vanguard. Both could be found inside of the map's biggest ship, with the first one hanging on a wall and the second one laying on the floor.

Assassin TurkeyEdit

AC3 Assassin Turkey

Connor with the Assassin Turkey

Any time after Sequence 6, Connor could find a turkey in the Davenport Homestead if he took cover behind any corner and whistled. Following this, the turkey would appear behind Connor and follow him wherever possible. Upon the turkey's appearance, it was possible to unlock a secret through inputting the Konami Code, with the directional prompts.

Xbox 360: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A.
PS3: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, O, X.
PC: 2, 2, 4, 4, 1, 3, 1, 3, E, Space.

Inputting the code would cause Connor to feed the animal. As the turkey fed, a small Assassin hood would appear over its head.

Broken Sword (game series)Edit

The "Broken Sword" Knife was a reference to the adventure series, which also dealt with a secret history involving Templars and the Hashashin.

Cool Hand LukeEdit

Often, civilians would utter "What we have here is a failure to communicate", which is the famous line from the film Cool Hand Luke. This line was appropriate in that it correctly expressed the major problem between Continentals and British Regulars, being their inability to reason or offer quarter.

Flying MachineEdit

After completing a series of Homestead missions and retrieving stolen blueprints for the woodworker Lance O'Donnell, Connor would be given the opportunity to engage in an interactive conversation with him outside the Davenport Manor. Lance would then reveal that the blueprints contained, among other things, designs for a flying machine invented by Leonardo da Vinci centuries before.

In a clear reference to Assassin's Creed II, Connor would request to use it much as Ezio Auditore did, however, once Connor leapt off of the Homestead's cliff with the construct, he and the machine would crash into the water of the bay below. This was due to Lance and Connor not knowing how da Vinci managed to make the machine fly.

French flagEdit

The hanging laundry in the game is arranged like the French flag.

Spyro the DragonEdit

When Desmond activated the mini-camera on his first mission, it made the same noise as Sparx the Dragonfly in the Spyro the Dragon series.

The Dark Knight RisesEdit

When Connor encountered Charles Lee in the first memory of Sequence 12, Lee mentioned that he was going to burn down the Davenport Homestead and destroy Connor's village, and "When (Connor)'s seen all his life's work brought to ruin. Only then will I allow him to die."

This paralleled the lines spoken by Bane to Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight Rises, "And then, when it is done, and Gotham is ashes... then you have my permission to die." The circumstances were similar but due to the time between the movie and the release of Assassin's Creed III, the lines were likely an unintentional allusion.

The Last of the MohicansEdit

The Gunstock Club was an exact replica of the club used by the character Chingachgook in the 1992 version of The Last of the Mohicans.

Assassin's Creed III: LiberationEdit

PredatorEdit

There was a trophy in Assassin's Creed III: Liberation named "Predator", which could be earned through killing an enemy from a tree with the blowpipe, whilst using Eagle Vision.

This was a reference to the Predator movie franchise, where the Predator stalked its prey from tree branches with thermal imaging, and then killed them with a gun.

Swamp WhaleEdit

At least in the Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD version of the game (unconfirmed in the original PlayStation Vita version), if Aveline de Grandpré climbs the lighthouse next to the Spanish fort in the Bayou, and then climbs onto the beam jutting out on the side opposite the one that serves as a Viewpoint to be synchronized, the sound of whale song starts to be heard in the swamp, and if Aveline continues to look out into the (inaccessible) water nearby, she can actually see a whale swimming around in the swamp water, occasionally surfacing to take a breath, sticking its tail up as it dives, or even breaching the surface and splashing down.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black FlagEdit

Death of a SalesmanEdit

The achievement for completing memory sequence 5 is titled "Death Of A Salesman", a reference to the Arthur Miller play of the same name.

Full Metal JacketEdit

In "Trust Is Earned", John Cockram can be heard telling his soldiers "Pick up your socks and grab your cocks." This is a reference to the morning bootcamp scene in Full Metal Jacket.

Giant Squid vs. White WhaleEdit

At the Antocha ship wreck, if Edward looks out a window in one of the wrecks for a short while, a cinematic depicting a battle between a Giant Squid and a white whale will occur.

Inglourious BasterdsEdit

One of Edward Kenway's memories is named "Vainglorious Bastards", a reference to the movie Inglourious Basterds.

Papers, PleaseEdit

One of the naval contracts Edward can undertake is named "Papers, Please", a reference to the indie game Papers, Please.

Pirate shipsEdit

There is a pirate hunter ship named Thriller Bark, which may be a reference to a ship of the same name from the One Piece anime.

Another pirate hunter ship is named Hornblower, a possible reference to the Horatio Hornblower series by C.S. Forester.

Real-world media and weaponsEdit

AC4 Weapons Easter Egg

The silver Syrian Sabre

Throughout Abstergo Entertainment's Montreal building, several real-world games, books and other Assassin's Creed media can be found.

Accompanying this, there was a glass case in Olivier Garneau's office containing several weapons, including a silver handled Syrian Sabre, Maria Auditore da Firenze's dagger, and four replicas of the double-barreled shotgun from Red Steel 2, another Ubisoft title.

Scarlet NeedleEdit

In the multiplayer, the Duellist has a weapon called the Scarlet Needle, with the description "Choose your fate: Surrender, or Die". Both are references to a character in the Saint Seiya anime, Scorpio Milo, one being his technique and the other his famous catchphrase.

Second White Whale appearanceEdit

At the Devil's Eye Caverns wreck, if Edward collects all the chests throughout the wreck and returns to the diving bell via the rapid current caverns, a white whale will appear in close proximity to the wreck, and pass by until it swims off into the distance.

The Secret of Monkey IslandEdit

In "The Pirate Captain" memory, Edward assassinates a pirate captain called Mancomb Seepgood, which references the video game The Secret of Monkey Island, as a pirate by the name of Mancomb Seepgood appears early in the story. However, judging by his claims that soon he will be the mightiest pirate in the Caribbean, it is likely he was also intended as a parody of the similarly-named, better-known protagonist of the Monkey Island franchise, Guybrush Threepwood. Additionally, during Sequence 10, Bartholomew Roberts remarks that "there's nothing like the hot winds of Hell blowing in your face," the same line uttered by the Ghost Pirate LeChuck in The Secret of Monkey Island.

The Young OnesEdit

In Kingston, two guards can be heard conversing about the previous night. The following exchange is a rather obscure reference to the British comedy The Young Ones.

Tomb RaiderEdit

An assassin contract Edward can undertake is named "Tomb Raiders", a reference to the video game series Tomb Raider.

Assassin's Creed (comic series)Edit

Prince of PersiaEdit

ACGN Prince EasterEgg

Prince cameo in the Assassin's Creed French comic

In the first tome of the comic, during Desmond's flashback, the Prince of Persia, the main protagonist of the 2008 reboot of the famous Ubisoft series, Prince of Persia, appeared on the screen of the arcade game monitor at the "L'Horizon" bar.

Assassin's Creed in other mediaEdit

The characters, gameplay elements, and plot of Assassin's Creed were also featured in various other media.

Academy of Champions: SoccerEdit

Altair and other Ubisoft characters appear in Academy of Champions: Soccer as playable characters.

AdventureQuestEdit

In AdventureQuest, the Assassin job class had a level 10 Guardian skill called "Finishing Blow." After clicking this, it had another button called "Assassin's Creed." Additionally, the armor "Whispering Raiment" had two small blades on the left arm, referencing the Assassins' Hidden Blade.

AdventureQuest WorldsEdit

In AdventureQuest Worlds, there were two outfits available for purchase at the suggestion shop in Yulgar's inn, which were the "Hashashin Armor," priced at 500,000 gold for free players, and the "Armored Hashashin Armor," priced at 300,000 gold for upgraded members of the game. The armor included two "hidden blades," though they were located on top of the player's wrist, rather than on the underneath.

Dead IslandEdit

In Dead Island, there was a wieldable knife named "Assassin's Greed" (referencing the series' title). Accompanying this, there was also a modification for brass knuckles called the "Assassin's Poison Mod".

Dragon Age IIEdit

In Dragon Age II, the brothel in Hightown was called the "Blooming Rose," a direct translation of the Roman courtesan headquarters, the Rosa in Fiore.

Dungeon DefendersEdit

In Dungeon Defenders, the character "The Ranger", the male version of "The Huntress" for the PC, could obtain a Halloween costume that resembled a black Master Assassin robe set.

Fable AnniversaryEdit

There is an achievement in Fable Anniversary called "Ass Creed". It requires the player to wear an assassin outfit and then do a the fart expression. The achievement description will then read, "You were deadly alright; look at the size of that hole in your trousers! Quick, find a haystack!".

Far Cry 3Edit

In Far Cry 3, one of the collectible Letters of the Lost Lab mentioned "I question using these so-called scientists. They speak of Pieces of Eden and Edison's electrical experiments into genetic memory." It also mentioned the password "122112", a reference to the solar flare date in Desmond's storyline, and an Abstergo Industries logo could be found on several of the walls.

As well as this, earlier in the game, Jason mentions "leap of faith" before jumping into a pool of water, reminiscent of the Leap of Faith from the Assassin's Creed games. Also, at the beginning of the game, they quote "In another moment, down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again" from Alice in Wonderland, very similar to how Shaun Hastings quoted the phrase in Assassin's Creed III. However, they continue quoting dialogues from the book throughout the game.

Final Fantasy XIII-2Edit

Ezio's outfit from Assassin's Creed: Revelations appears in Final Fantasy XIII-2 as a downloadable costume.

Gaia OnlineEdit

H2k11 halloween edmund

Edmund as Ezio

During the 2011 Halloween event in Gaia Online, Edmund, the shop owner for H & R Wesley, was dressed as Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed II.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

In Grand Theft Auto IV, after completing a set of assassination missions for a mysterious figure named the Fixer, the player received an achievement called Assassin's Greed, which was a direct play on the Assassin's Creed name. Moreover, the requirement for the achievement was the completion of nine assassination missions, which paralleled the first Assassin's Creed game, in which Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad was tasked by Al Mualim to kill nine Templars in exchange for his reinstatement as a Master Assassin.

Hitman: AbsolutionEdit

In the Sniper Challenge of Absolution Agent 47 will see a very tall building in the background with two antennas. If Agent 47 looks through his scope at the very top of the building, he will see a hooded man perched on a ledge. If he shoots the man, an eagle sound can be heard as the man falls. Shooting the man earns the player the "Leap of the Ninja" achievement, referencing the Leap of Faith.

Hyperdimension NeptuniaEdit

One of IF's weapons, named the "Freak Diamond" has the description of "A replica of an assassins blade from days of yore. No matter the height, you'll be fine if you fall into a haystack."

inFamous 2Edit

Croppedagain

The theater, depicting the parody title

Located in the fictional city of New Marais, several cinemas and theaters in inFamous 2 featured movie titles that were direct puns to popular video game names. Among the movie titles was "Assassin's Need (Love Too)", a parody on Assassin's Creed. These cinemas were located in the very first district of the city. Also, one of the negative karmic missions available in the game was named "Assassin's Greed", another play on the Assassin's Creed name.

Another Easter egg found in the game's downloadable content, inFamous: Festival of Blood, could be seen again on the cinemas' featured movie titles. The new parody title was "Assassin's Bleed", which was also a reference to the download content's central theme of vampires.

Invictus gamesEdit

In the iPhone games Froggy Jump and Froggy Launcher, a torso item called "Assassin armor" appeared identical to Ezio's armor in Assassin's Creed II, and could be bought for 2 Diamonds.

Kingdom Rush: FrontiersEdit

In the Ironhide Studios game, the two top level "Militia" towers are the Assassins and the Templars, a direct play on the rivalry between the Assassins and the Templars in the Assassin's Creed series.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings: The Video GameEdit

In LEGO The Lord of the Rings, a Leap of Faith could be performed from a wooden board that resembled a View Point at the highest point in Weathertop. On performing it, the character would land into a small pond, complete with an eagle-like sound as the Leap was done.

LittleBigPlanet seriesEdit

As a part of their promotion for Assassin's Creed II, Ubisoft released Ezio's Assassin costume as a downloadable outfit for the PlayStation 3 exclusive LittleBigPlanet on 8 December 2009.

On the day that Revelations was released, LittleBigPlanet released a new costume of Ezio, featuring Sackboy in the robes that Ezio started out with in the game, as well as his beard. These outfits are also available in LittleBigPlanet 2.

Metal Gear Solid seriesEdit

AltairSnake

The Altaïr costume in Metal Gear Solid 4

On April Fools' Day 2008, it was revealed that an Altaïr costume for Old Snake could be unlocked in the game Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Hideo Kojima, one of the game's creators, later announced that it was not a joke, and that the costume could really be unlocked if the player did "something special." In order to unlock the costume, the player must have either acquired the "Assassin Emblem" (a nod to the games' emblem) or input a password in the "Extras" section. Specifically, the password was revealed to be aottrykmyn.

The costume could be used as an alternative disguise early in-game and worked exactly like the Middle East Militia costume. Unlike Altaïr's robes, the Militia costume was lost early in-game, prompting the player to find another set of the disguise, and could cause the Middle Eastern faction to be friendly to the player as opposed to having to work to gain their trust. When the costume was worn, Old Snake's idle stance, without any weapons equipped, is exactly like Altaïr's stance in Assassin's Creed, complete with his ring finger bent back to his palm, a reference to Altaïr's missing finger.

"Back in the time of the Crusades, members of the order of Assassins used what is called the Assassin's Straw Box to hide and get close to their enemies."
―Kazuhira Miller, commenting on the newly procured item.[src]

In Main Ops 16, one of the missions in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, a unique box made of straw dubbed the Assassin's Straw Box could be obtained. To do so, the player must ensure that there was a vacant slot in the equipment section. They then must climb onto the roof of the shack above where the straw box was, and then perform a Leap of Faith into it. The Leap was accompanied by an eagle's screech, similar to its mechanism in the Assassin's Creed series.

LeapOfFaithMGS

Big Boss performing a Leap of Faith into the straw box

Right after obtaining the straw box, one of the game's main supporting characters, Kazuhira Miller, mentions its use during the Third Crusade (the time period of Assassin's Creed), and how it was used by the Assassin order. After the aforementioned mission was completed, the Assassin's Straw Box was made available in the inventory.

The box could hold two people simultaneously and included a special function not found in other box items: players were able to knock out soldiers while hiding in the box and if another player was present, the unconscious soldier can be recruited via Fulton Recovery. Continued use of the box damages the item, and can be destroyed completely for the rest of the mission if overused.

Prince of Persia seriesEdit

FS ezio costume

The Prince wearing Ezio's Assassin robes in The Forgotten Sands

In Prince of Persia (2008), Altaïr's costume was available as free downloadable content for use by the Prince. Additionally, an achievement entitled Assassin's View could be unlocked by standing on a View Point upon the Martyr's Tower.

Similarly, in Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Ezio's costume could be purchased via Uplay for 30 points.

In the Ubisoft's game, Rayman Legends, some shops like Game in the UK offered pre-order DLC skin for Rayman and Barbara with Rayman Legends, one of Edward Kenway for Rayman and one of Aveline de Grandpré for Barbara.

RuneScapeEdit

In RuneScape, the quests Stolen Hearts and Diamond in the Rough contained many similarities to Assassin's Creed, such as stalking targets, free-running across rooftops and an "Eagle jump" into a cart of hay.

Following this, for the Desert Tasks, a player would accomplish the "Assassin's Feed" task if they repeated the "Eagle jump".

Saints Row: The ThirdEdit

In the sandbox game Saints Row: The Third, an achievement entitled Everything is Permitted was awarded when one eliminated all assassination targets, which referenced the Assassins' Creed.

Sims MedievalEdit

In the simulation game Sims Medieval, there were two roles that the player could be: Assassin and Templar.  A quest that had the player kill spies and assassins was named "Assassin's Greed", a direct reference to Assassin's Creed.

Six-GunsEdit

In the mobile game created by Gameloft, one of the locations within the state of Oregon was called Assassin's Creek.

Soul Calibur VEdit

Ezio Auditore, wearing his default outfit from Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, was a special playable guest character in Soul Calibur V.

Styx: Master of ShadowsEdit

Styx: Master of Shadows, an upcoming video game, features a hooded goblin assassin with traits similar to the Assassin's Creed franchise, including the use of parkour, ledge and air assassinations and an ability akin to Eagle Vision. Accompanying this, one of the game's trailers is titled "Assassin's Green".

Team Fortress 2Edit

Team Fortress 2 featured two promotional items for the Spy class obtained through random crafting or from pre-ordering Assassin's Creed: Revelations from Steam called the "Dashin' Hashashin," which resembled Ezio's hood, and the Sharp Dresser which resembled Ezio's Hidden Blade.

The Elder Scrolls V: SkyrimEdit

In the fifth Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim, the Dovahkiin may travel to a place called the "Bards Leap Summit;" a large cliff sporting a plank at the top, with a large drop to a pool below, resembling a View Point and a Leap of Faith. The entrance to the area also resembles the Assassin insignia.

The SaboteurEdit

In The Saboteur, the main protagonist Sean Devlin earned a racing car with white stripes, named Altaïr, which was nicknamed "The Flying Eagle."

The SimpsonsEdit

Assassinscreedsummoeroflove

The poster for the fictional Assassin's Creed sequel

In the fifth episode of season 23 of The Simpsons, "The Food Wife," a poster could be seen in the back of the fictional games convention E4, featuring a hippie with two Hidden Blades and the title "Assassin's Creed - Summer of Love," besides some other game parodies.

The Witcher 2Edit

Witcher2 Assassin

Geralt standing by the body

During one mission in The Witcher 2, Geralt could walk up to some haystacks underneath a structure resembling a View Point and find the body of a white-robed man, who looked suspiciously like an Assassin, that appeared to have died when his Leap of Faith failed. The white-robed man also had a blade covering his arm that looked like an Assassin's Hidden Blade.

If the player examined the body, Geralt said, "Hmm... Guess they'll never learn." From there, he would be granted a hidden ability called "Assassin", which add additional damage to enemies if attacked from behind.

VelayudhamEdit

In the 2011 Indian Tamil film Velayudham, the protagonist Velu wears an outfit similar to Altaïr's. In regards to this, the film's producers mentioned that the costume was heavily influenced by Altaïr's outfit from Assassin's Creed.

Watch_DogsEdit

Created by Ubisoft, the 2014 game Watch_Dogs contains numerous references to the Assassin's Creed universe: there is an outfit named the DedSec White Hacker Suit, for which the color scheme resembles the Assassins' robes; a camera feed shows a father watching his son playing "The Wounded Eagle" memory from Assassin's Creed: Revelations; the final criminal convoy mission references as to why Olivier Garneau never arrived to his shareholder's meeting in Chicago; finally, the presence of several individuals who work for Abstergo Industries can be seen through Aiden Pearce's Profiler.
