** Renegade Shepard also has dialogue options that imply they hate being spied on and people who use other people as lab rats without their consent.



* {{Catchphrase}}: Renegade Shepard really hates being "jerked around", and Shepard in general often opens dialogue with "What can you tell me about [[MadLibsCatchphrase [insert thing here]]]", then finishing with "I should go." In the Citadel DLC Shepard finds out about the "I should go" thing and is annoyed that no-one ever told them how awkward it sounds.

** [[spoiler: As of Extended Cut, if you pick the Destroy ending with sufficient EMS, Shepard is seen to have survived the Crucible explosion, gasping in a pile of rubble. If you have the iOS app, then you will receive an email from Shepard's love interest saying how badly they want to visit them in the ICU.]]

* LighterAndSofter: The popular Spacer/War Hero combination leaves Shepard relatively trauma-free, with an idyllic childhood and a chest full of medals.

Added DiffLines:

* TeleportSpam: Starting in Mass Effect 2, a Vanguard Shepard can fully abuse this trope with enough cooldown reduction on their Biotic Charge. The charge itself not only instantly teleports you to your enemy, but also sends any unarmored target flying, refills your shields, and can ''slow down time''. At it's absolute best, the cooldown can finish in just under two seconds, (some of which is during the slowed time) meaning that any Shepard who tries this will find themselves hard pressed to be killed. [[spoiler:It's worth noting however than just about anyone else with the Charge ability, even Shepard's clone, can do it infinitely more often and don't require an enemy target.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LimitedAdvancementOpportunities: Never promoted above the rank of Commander, despite having responsibilities and power far beyond that rank and command of Earth's most advanced ship. This gets lampshaded in the second game, where the Quarians insist on using the the title Captain despite Shepard not actually holding that military rank. It gets especially ridiculous in the third game, when Shepard is the second or third most powerful person in the Alliance and the public face of humanity.

*** [[spoiler:Though that is highly debatable, since Vasir is not just working with the Shadow Broker but actively killing innocents as a favor to him, whereas Shepard is not directly involved in any of Cereberus' darker projects.]]

** Taken to new extremes with the Citadel DLC when on shore leave Shepard is attacked and causes huge amounts of destruction including...destruction. During Miranda's visit to Shep's apartment, she states: "I'm not sure the galaxy could handle two Shepards. Think of the property damage." She then notes her favorite sushi place was closed down. Shepard's excuse?

* TragicBigot: A Renegade Colonist Shepard can ''majorly'' hate Batarians because of what happened to his/her family, in addition to the general contempt s/he shows them at the beginning of ''Bring Down the Sky''.



* TurnInYourBadge: By the beginning of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Shepard has apparently been unceremoniously stripped of their Spectre status, and with the Alliance has been relieved of duty and stripped of their rank. Although the Spectre status actually appears to be complicated. If you chose to become reinstated in the second game, it appears that due to working with Cerberus, being restricted to the Terminus Systems was a form of probation. In the third game, you are returned to ''full'' Spectre status.

* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Apparently the female Shepard is canonically red haired with green eyes.

* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Apparently the The default female Shepard. Emphasizing the pervasiveness of this trope is that when a fan poll was created to choose the new look of Commander Shepard is canonically red haired for ''Mass Effect 3'', so many people indicated that their vote depended on getting a red-haired, green-eyed Shepard with green eyes.their favorite face model that the developers posted a second poll allowing people to pick the coloration, and the green-eyed redhead won by a large margin.
