to:

* WideEyedIdealist: Is utterly convinced that the krogan will prosper and be peaceful after the genophage is cured. Unlike Mordin, he can't be talked out of it, even if [[BloodKnight Wreav]] is in charge of the krogan clans.



* SniperRifle: His preferred weapon.

to:

* SniperRifle: His preferred weapon. Specifically an N7 Valiant in the trailer.



* NonActionGuy: More of a detective and technician than a straight-up fighter, though presumably he can use a gun well enough. Regardless, he's never seen in a firefight and he's nearly overpowered in hand to hand combat by a regular human thug, requiring Shepard's intervention to survive the encounter.



* ActionSurvivor: Of the ''Mass Effect'' novels.

to:

* ActionSurvivor: Of the ''Mass Effect'' novels. She only got relatively basic combat training, as she served in a non-combat role, but she ends up being thrown into several firefights where she holds her own. When she shows up in the games, she's first seen popping up from behind a desk and shooting an Assault Trooper in the face a couple times with a shotgun as he hacks open a door.
* BatterUp: In ''Ascension'', killed a batarian pirate by swinging a heavy rifle at his head like a bat (she even says the trope name before doing so). She ended up beating his head in so hard that the rifle broke.



* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: The books specifically mention her natural blonde hair, as such a feature is very rare in the future.



* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: She's seen wielding a Katana shotgun.

to:

* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: She's seen wielding a Katana shotgun.
Scimitar shotgun. In the books, she usually uses a pistol.



* OverrankedSoldier: She'd be this as a Marine even today, but the codex mentions that the Alliance's fictional ranking system places "Captain" as the highest rank below the general/admiral ranks, making it equivalent to a full colonel in the USMC today. She definitely shouldn't be leading a simple 4-man squad on the front lines.



* BadassBookworm: Her profile reveals that she's an N7 Demolisher Engineer. [[IncrediblyLamePun Her handle is "De-Mel-Isher".]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer: She's pretty eccentric and crude, but she's not an N7 for nothing.



* ElitesAreMoreGlamborous: She's an N7, considered an elite among elites.



* DeadpanSnarker: Occasionally. One example if your Shepard referred to her as "too valuable" to lose earlier:
-->'''Shepard:''' Are you okay?
-->'''Eve:''' Don't worry commander, your "prize" is undamaged.



* TheHighQueen: Basically takes this role, as by far the most powerful and influential female krogan on Tuchanka.



* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: How he became the leader of Aralakh Company.



* {{Kaiju}}: It's simply ''enormous''.

to:

* {{Kaiju}}: It's simply ''enormous''. The surfaced part of its body alone towers over the Reaper Destroyer, putting that section of its body at about 200 meters long. Most of it is still underground!



** 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.]]

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.]]

** 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.

to:

** The Reaches downright bizarre levels with its intervention in the Quarian-Geth Conflict. Despite stating that its purpose is to stop synthetics from destroying their creators, the only RobotWar in this cycle was the Geth-Quarian war, in which the organic Quarians were the aggressors at every stage. Until time the Reapers got take part in a (non-Reaper-related) organic-synthetic conflict is when they upgrade the geth soon after the quarians figure out a way to destroy them, thus directly involved attempting to ensure the Geth had been peacefully keeping to themselves for centuries.destruction of an organic species at the hands of its synthetic creations. If the Catalyst's minions hadn't intervened at all, the quarians would have easily won.

* ArcVillain: Of Miranda's loyalty mission in the second game, having hired a small army of mercenaries to kidnap Oriana. Though he doesn't show up on-screen until the third.

* 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 failing to kill his target.]]

These grant him abilities including, among others, low level SuperStrength, an InvisibilityCloak, SuperToughness, a spherical power-blocking [[BarrierWarrior barrier]], and PowerPalms.



** In his final battle against Shepard, he takes a full-force front kick to the chest from the SuperSoldier without injury. That may not seem like much at first, but note that in earlier scenes Shepard is able to ''kill'' (or at least incapacitate) [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krQwYN90BZw&feature=youtu.be&t=690 an armored]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLRR6y6t5iI&t=4m20s soldier]] with a single quick jab to the chest, a feat s/he repeats later. A kick is many times more powerful than a jab.

** In his introductory scene, [[InASingleBound he casually leaps over ten feet verticaly]] despite being fully armored. The world record for an unassisted vertical jump is five feet.[[note]]Assuming Leng in full armor weighs about 225 pounds (180 lbs being the weight of the average American man and 40-50 lbs being the weight of a suit of high medieval plate armor), a 10-foot vertical jump [[http://www.dunkcalculator.com/verticalcalculator would require]] his legs to push against the ground with over 21,000 newtons of force. Assuming he was 5'10 tall and using standard 60-degree jump form. For comparison, the 6'5, 200 lbs Michael Jordan pushes against the ground with 7,000 newtons to obtain his famous 4-foot vertical.[[/note]] A jump like this is [[http://www.higher-faster-sports.com/verticaljumpcalculator.html directly translatable]] to a 1,600-1,700 lbs squat. The world record for a raw squat is 1,005 lbs, done with enormous effort by a man twice Leng's size.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperStrength: Subtle but present. The dossier Anderson emails to Shepard credits any superhuman prowess of his to "Phantom-class implants", meaning that [[EliteMooks Phantoms]] have this too, even if they don't really show it.

** Or Shepard can choose Synthesis, blurring the line between organic and synthetic life, thanks to Shepard's cybernetics. Life itself has greatly advanced in many ways, with the geth and the quarians living peacefully and, depending on your choices, the krogan enjoying a new golden age. However, Shepard has done so without letting the galaxy know, subverting the direction of evolution.
