The Assassin’s Creed series features games taking place in different pantheons. So, you’d expect some Gods to show up or be mentioned at least.
Some of the Gods were also members of the Isu. The Isu are a highly developed civilization responsible for creating the Pieces of Eden and for creating humanity, so in the Assassin’s Creed Universe, Gods and Isu are the same thing.
The Isu are recognized and worshipped as Gods throughout different pantheons. So, we’re gonna list the Isu/Gods appearing in different pantheons through various games or just being mentioned through lore, side quests or simply exposition:
Greek, Roman and Etruscan Pantheon (Multiple Games)
Gods of Roman, Etruscan and Greek pantheon are referenced and mentioned in multiple Assassin’s Creed games. Also, note that some Gods from a pantheon also appeared in different pantheons with different names.
