The Broken Sword Knife was a reference to the Broken Sword series, which also dealt with a secret history involving Templars and Assassins. Often, civilians would utter "What we have here is a failure to communicate" , which is the famous line from the film Cool Hand Luke.

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. 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 trophy Predator could be earned through killing an enemy from a tree with the blowpipe , whilst using Eagle Vision.

Both are references to a character in the Saint Seiya franchise, Scorpio Milo, one being his technique and the other his famous catchphrase. 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.

There are four known ways to defeat the Headless Horseman. The first is to shoot a pumpkin sitting atop a gravestone in the cemetery next to the church. The second way is to use a sleep grenade to cause him to drop his axe, have Shay pick up the axe, and perform the special attack with the weapon once he awakens. This will drive the axe through his nonexistent head and incapacitate him. However, he will still be alive and aware of the player.
