* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Your squad mates usually do a pretty good job at keeping the clone on their toes, often depleting their entire medi-gel reserves in seconds if the clone gets caught in an armor-piercing crossfire, but no matter how much overkill they throw at Bad!Shep once the medi-gel count hits zero, it won't put them down for good - the killing blow always has to be dealt by the player and, by extension, the real Shepard.

* ArchVillain: Of sorts. While we only learn it at the last minutes of the third game, the Catalyst/Citadel has been the [[ManBehindTheMan mastermind behind Saren, the Heretic Geth, the Collectors and ultimately the Reapers]], and so has quite literally been the mind behind all main enemies fought in the series. We've returned to it in each game for missions and whatnot, [[UnknownRival unknowlingly walking on the physical form of our greatest enemy.]]

* BadassBaritone[=/=]EvilSoundsDeep: They have an ''extremely'' deep voice similar to the Reapers', and although they're not actively malicious, they consider all races but their own as nothing more than tools to serve their needs and worship them while they're at it. The first thing they do when Shep pays them a visit is trying to make him/her their thrall as well despite of their knowledge that (s)he's an anomaly and probably the first and only chance to stop the cycle of extinction forever.

* ContinuityNod: For the Leviathan of Dis, an "organic spacecraft" that crashed in batarian space and whose existence is fiercly denied by the Hegemony. It turns out that the Leviathan was a crashed Reaper... And guess who shot him down?
* EldritchAbomination: They look like organic Reapers and have the same powers and size than them. This is not a coincidence.

* {{Kaiju}}: These things are ''enormous'' even for marine creatures, measuring several hundred meters in length. Not even [[SandWorm Kalros]], Tuchankas' titanic Reaper-crushing guard worm, can hold a candle to them due to the Leviathan's sheer physical bulk and size.
* MindControlDevice: Their artifacts, which look like big shiny crystalline balls. Recruiting them as a war asset has the allied forces deploy said artifacts on battlefields to extend their indoctrination powers and enthrall Reaper forces to fight against their own. Said asset contributes 400 points to your war score - that's more than the entirety of the united krogan armies, and the single largest asset in the game.

* AbusivePrecursors: They claim to be (and most likely are) the first and most powerful organic species ever to evolve in the Milky Way. That and their prodigious mind control abilities went to their head and led to them enthralling countless civilizations and entire "lesser" species all across the galaxy, demanding tribute and worship while giving nothing in return. The Leviathan Shep talks to mentions that those species were "cared for", but only because tribute does not flow from a dead race, and it doesn't go into detail how exactly their alleged care looked like. Well, and then they got this [[SarcasmMode brilliant idea]] of creating the Catalyst to stop their servants from wiping themselves out, something that turned into the most horrible backfire in galactic history by giving rise to the Reapers. So, the whole mess the galaxy's currently in (and has been for at least one billion years, costing lives beyond counting) is essentially the result of their overblown god complex.
* AGodAmI: They don't outright call themselves such, but the signs are clearly there, considering how they view all other species as nothing but tools, demand tribute and worship, alledgedly "bent the galaxy to their every will" and even created their own version of the Devil that eventually and royally kicked their asses. On the other hand, they really are ''immensely'' powerful, even in their current state and with their species reduced to a handful of survivors hiding out in remote corners of the galaxy.

to:

* ItsAllAboutMe: They consider themselves the apex of all organic life in the galaxy and couldn't care less about the "lesser" species - as long as the latter pay tribute to them, of course. Everything they do, even their reluctant entry into the Reaper War, they do for nothing but their own gain.

** JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler:But if Legion is dead and this thing has replaced it, you can't achieve peace between the geth and quarians, so you're forced to wipe out one or the other. If you choose to wipe out the geth to save the quarians, then the VI will angrily remark (while trying to throttle you) that the geth were ''right'' to distrust organics. Though considering the geths' own actions basically ensured that they'd be seen as untrustworthy as possible (up to and including adopting a shoot-on-sight policy for organics and abetting the genocide of every other species), and the Geth VI in this instance is demanding that you let it genocide an entire species based purely on its word despite said lack of reason to trust it, it's not exactly a ''good'' point.]]

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Legion's. Depending on your playthrough, it's implied it's the same platform (returned to the Perseus Veil) but different software (or possibly the backup of what was sent) uploaded into it.

Depending on your playthrough, it's implied it's the same platform (returned to the Perseus Veil) but different software (or possibly the backup of what was sent) uploaded into it. Then again, it is pretty different in some very important ways, since there can't be any peace when it is present.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Though WordOfGod has implied nothing special about the Kid, that hasn't stopped fans from coming up with any numbers of theories about him. [[spoiler:Is he an illusion made up by a weary and possibly slightly-indoctrinated Shepard, trying to break their will and succumb to the Reapers? Is it a projection made by the Catalyst for the same reason? Is it really just a kid who ended up shot and killed? Take your pick.]]
