** More awesome from a meta perspective, Uvenk is voiced by Michael Dorn, AKA Worf from Star Trek. Wrex is basically telling Worf to "Quit it with the stupid traditions, they aren't working, now get out of my way, I'm saving our race." Awesome.

*** In other words, the best that Cerberus has against a dying alien... and for most of the fight, the dying alien is ''winning.''

Added DiffLines:
** If you think about it, Shepard sicced the Queen of All Threshers against an ageless, eldritch abomination starship... because it was in his way of his ''real'' objective.

Added DiffLines:
** And if you did the side quest to get that waitress in Chora's Den in the first game to safety, she saves Conrad's life. So. Conrad provides valuable data on Dark Matter to the Crucible, saves war orphans, and gets the girl... all thanks to you.

** In a more subdued moment, note that this is the ''closest'' you get to landing on Earth in the entire trilogy, up until the third game. Earth may be important, but you- the player- have to focus on what's important not just for the homeworld, but for ''the entire galaxy.''

*** And in 3, ''she'' gets the chance to punch ''you''. Hilarious and awesome.

** On the flip-side of that, you can also go the diplomatic route, and when she starts winding up to pitch the good ol' "aliens let humans die for their own skins" tripe, Shepard gets a particularly moving CMOA by cutting her off with a powerful, spine-chilling lecture:

** He gets another when he cures your plague-infected alien teammates (if they're there) and then [[SherlockScan works out exactly who you work for and a good guess at why you're there]] in the space of about fifteen seconds. And the only reason it takes him that long [[MotorMouth is he has to vocalize his thoughts.]]

He's prepared for everything.

*** Take the awesome up a notch further: As Mordin keys in the activation code to release the cure, he glances at the waiting elevator, but stands his ground. Instead of trying to save himself after getting the job done, he still stays in place to make sure it works.

* During Miranda's loyalty mission, a group of mercs will attempt to get her and Shepard to back off. As the merc talks, Shepard notices a crane moving an explosive cargo container. There's a Renegade interrupt. If taken, Shepard will reach forward and break the one merc's neck with his/her bare hands. Miranda will then shoot another at point-blank range as Shepard pulls out his/her handcannon and blasts the container to kill two more mercs. One merc remains, who can only look from the burning fire and back to Shepard in shock.

** Throughout the entire trailer, Shepard is duel wielding both the M-96 Mattock Assault Rifle and an omni-blade. Upon seeing the brute, the Mattock is seen flying - Shepard literally threw it away in favour of a melee take down. ** Hell, just the fact Shepard was ''duel wielding'' in the trailer. Didn't make it into game mechanics, but still BadAss.

Reaper destroyers are quite a bit bigger than tanks.
* '''[[CoolVersusAwesome Reaper vs. Thresher Maw.]]''' They are riding out to complete another mission but have to contend with a Reaper tank, all hope seems lost. Shepard is forced to go on foot when the Krogan convoy is taken out, travelling through an ancient Krogan city talking about the Thresher Maw to end all Thresher Maws on Tuchanka. When conversing with Wrex about it, they realize that Tuchanka is its' home too and won't like a Reaper stomping around. So, as shown during Grunt's rite of passage, they decide to summon the Thresher Maw and point it at the Reaper. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSb7lxVn7Gk The end result is insane.]] Shepard is literally running underfoot of the giant sentient spaceship trying to hit him/her with a beam of molten metal fired approaching the speed of light. S/He dodges and weaves through the incoming fire, avoids things that pop out of the ground too fast for you to even get a good look at them, and then narrowly avoids being stepped on by the Reaper. Then the drums are sounded, and you know the Maw is angry. The Maw ''lunges'' out of the ground and tackles the Reaper, wrestling for a minute before the Reaper gets an angle to shoot at it, only to miss because it went underground again. Then it resurfaces and wraps itself around the Reaper, crushing it and dragging the thing underground. James Vega gets it right pretty early in the video: "Holy shit!"
