* Expy: Could be seen as one to Admiral Thrawn of the now non-canon Star Wars Expanded Universe. He wears a very similar outfit, has a similar high-culture approach to villainy, and plays a similar role to the Illusive Man as Thrawn plays to the Emperor.

* CutscenePowerToTheMax: In cutscenes, he displays many nifty abilities, like Tactical Cloak, a bullet-proof barrier, and the ability to kill anyone with a single backhanded stab from his sword. He can't do any of that in-game. Notably, generic EliteMooks can.

He can't do any of that in-game. Notably, generic EliteMooks can. Even in cutscenes he's only a threat because his enemies suffer from CutsceneIncompetence.



* InformedAbility: Supposedly ridiculously dangerous, and he ''does'' do some impressive things during cutscenes, but he was getting his ass kicked against a very sick and dying Thane before getting a shot in, he does more running than fighting during combat, and the Phantoms he keeps around are more dangerous during the final fight than he is.

His only actual achievement in the game was to steal a data disc and skedaddle, and he needed gunship support to manage that.

** The only RobotWar in this cycle was the Geth-Quarian war, in which the organic Quarians were the aggressors at every stage. Until the Reapers got directly involved the Geth had been peacefully keeping to themselves for centuries.

* PaintedOnPants: Literally painted on. This trope is so ubiquitous in the setting that nobody notices.

* BreakThemByTalking: Delivers one to Shepard for working with Aria. He [[VillainHasAPoint makes a lot of good points]], namely that Aria doesn't have any moral superiority over Cerberus.
** It's possible for Shepard to [[ShutUpHannibal shut him up.]] What's unique about the situation is that Shepard has to be an Engineer to do it: the only time in the series where Shepard's class has an impact on the plot.

* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler:Gives Shepard a HannibalLecture as Shepard's trying to fiddle with the reactor powering the plasma force fields while Nyreen and Aria are still trapped. "This is who you're working for, Shepard. She doesn't care who gets hurt." "She'd just throw thousands of lives away..." The same could be said to Petrovsky himself about his associates.]]

* NeverLiveItDown: InUniverse during the Citadel DLC party. EDI is practically {{Troll}}ing Samantha about her attraction to the AI. Tali would rather be anyone else than listen to the conversation.

* HeroKiller: Along with [[spoiler:killing Gillian with a [[ImprobableWeaponUser sharpened toothbrush]] (its canonicality is disputed though) in ''Deception'']], Kai Leng can potentially end up killing any combination of [[spoiler:Kirrahe/Thane/the Salarian Councillor and/or Miranda]], and he ''will'' kill at least one of them. [[spoiler: If he kills Thane it's subverted, the latter will mock him for barely beating a terminally ill Drell and was dying anyway.]]
