* MilitaryMaverick: He has this reputation thanks to his unorthodox tactics.
* NoodleIncident: Liara and Garrus relate one from earlier in his career that emphasises his unorthodox methods; during efforts to put down an uprising by turian separatists on the planet Taetrus, Victus discovered a salarian spy ring operating on the planet. Rather than neutralise the ring, he fell back, even surrendering valuable fortifications to the rebels...but then the rebels and salarians attacked each other, allowing Victus to reclaim the fortifications without a single casualty once both sides had wiped each other out, an action that made him a hero amongst the rank and file, but got him censure from the turian high command.

* Nepotism: Garrus speculates he got his rank on account of his father's position in the Turian military (A practice that is ''deeply'' frowned upon in Turian culture).




to:

* WellDoneSonGuy: Garrus invokes this about Tarquin, stating that great things are expected of him because he's the son of a respected war hero and comes from a long and prestigious military family.

If the Destiny Ascension was destroyed in the climax of the first game, the replacement Council refused to meet with you in the second due to your Cerberus ties. This is the first time you meet the other races' new representatives - Quentius (turian), Dalatrass Esheel (salarian) and Irissa (asari).

* JerkassHasAPoint: They bring up the fact that Shepard sacrificed the old council when pondering whether to trust him/her. Their mistrust of Shepard thus has some basis, especially if Shepard sacrificed their predecessors to advance humanity's interests. Dalatrass Esheel does off-handedly point out, however, that she wouldn't have her job if Shepard hadn't sacrificed the previous council, so she can't be ''too'' indignant with their actions overall.

to:

* {{Foil}}: Quentius is a NiceGuy compared to Sparatus's {{Jerkass}}, while Irissa is even colder and more brutally honest than Tevos.

Their him/her, giving the New Council's mistrust of Shepard thus has some basis, especially if Shepard sacrificed their predecessors to advance humanity's interests. Dalatrass basis. Esheel does off-handedly point out, out [[spoiler:if you cure the genophage]], however, that she wouldn't have her job if Shepard hadn't sacrificed the previous council, not for Shepard, so she can't be ''too'' indignant with their actions overall.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Not by him, but the others applied to him, in that even before [=ME3=] he was regarded by other Cerberus agents such as Miranda and [[spoiler:Maya Brooks]] as TIM's pet psycho.

* {{Kaiju}}: These things are ''enormous'' even for marine creatures, measuring several hundred meters in length. Not even [[SandWorm Kalros]], Tuchanka's titanic Reaper-crushing guard worm, can hold a candle to them due to the Leviathan's sheer physical bulk and size, and that's not even getting into their literally mind-blowing psychic powers.

Added DiffLines:

* OneHitKill: A single telepathic attack brings down a Sovereign-class Reaper (those are the ''really'' big 2-kilometer long ones, not the "little" 200-meter ones like Shepard fights on Tuchanka and Rannoch).

Added DiffLines:

* MindRape: Probes Shepard's mind, using the forms of Ann Bryson, Alex Garneau, and Derek Hadley in order to find out more about their visitor. The procedure is clearly unwanted and painful.

* {{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.

* KarmaHoudini: To an extent if [[spoiler: he lives. High ranking Alliance prisoners are given very good treatment and his War Asset entry mentions that he is probably going to be granted asylum. Though you can take a Renegade interrupt to inform him that if he's not ''completely'' forthcoming with his information, Shepard will hand him to Aria.]]

* PetTheDog: Several of these are shown to demonstrate that he's more deserving of respect than any of his Cerberus colleagues. He doesn't pointlessly endanger civilians, keeps his word, showed mercy to Aria when she was fleeing the station, shows respect to his enemies, despised the Illusive Man's plan [[spoiler:to release the Adjutants]], and repeatedly calls Shepard out on working for a criminal like Aria.

* YouWouldntShootMe: If Aria spares him, Petrovsky comes off as pretty smug about the whole thing, saying that he's heard Alliance prisoners are well cared for. However, Shepard can take a Renegade interrupt telling him that things might not go the way Petrovsky believes. Petrovsky will confidently say that Shepard wouldn't shoot an unarmed captive, [[spoiler:and they'll be his FamousLastWords if the player takes the second Renegade interrupt.]]
