* LargeAndInCharge: Inverted with female Shepard, who is officially listed as a mere 5'3 tall (though this [[InformedAttribute isn't seen in-game]]) and is very thin, making her quite possibly the ''smallest'' person on the Normandy Team. Played somewhat straight for male Shepard, who is slightly over [[http://www.cmdstore.com/mass-effect-3-series-12-inch-commander-shepard.html six feet tall]] (probably a reference to his face model Mark Vanderloo, who is 184 cm) and heavily built, making him larger than most humans and most of his subordinates. But even he is still handily out-sized by the two krogan, Garrus, James, and Legion.

** You have the option in an interrupt of pistol-whipping a MadScientist who used his own autistic brother as a lab rat in the ''Mass Effect 2'' Overlord DLC. This is the ''Paragon'' interrupt.

** You have the option in an interrupt of pistol-whipping a MadScientist who used his [[spoiler:his own autistic brother autistic, genius brother]] as a lab rat in the ''Mass Effect 2'' Overlord DLC. This is the ''Paragon'' interrupt.



* BigBrotherInstinct: Happens in the Overlord DLC if you play as Paragon!Shepard. [[spoiler:They'll become so utterly ''furious'' after learning the true origins of the Overlord VI, that they'll pistol-whip the ever-living shit out of the MadScientist responsible for creating it (and this is the ''Paragon'' interrupt), and threaten to end said scientist with a bullet if he tries coming near his brother David again.]]



** The ending to the DLC mission ''Overlord'' defines this. Even a pure renegade Shepard is sickened by what is done to David. The Paragon option is to take David away; with a bonus Paragon interrupt to PistolWhip his brother, and then threaten him at gunpoint that if he ''ever'' comes after David again, Shepard ''will'' shoot him.[[note]]Which makes sense considering Renegade Shepard is about "win at all costs", so Renegade would at best think Gavin went a little too far, while Paragon Shepard is "win without compromising our humanity", and David's situation is a deep offense to that philosophy.[[/note]]

'''Shepard:''' ''[pistol-whips Archer and brings the gun to his chin]'' You ever come after your brother, and this bullet will be waiting for you! Then we'll see who's valuable!

* KnightTemplar: Some of the choices that Shepard can make can look a bit like this, especially in the third game. [[spoiler:If you choose to ascend Shepard as commander of the Reapers while playing the Renegade route, they'll use the Reapers to impose order and stamp out possible threats to his vision of "peace".]]



* PistolWhipping: Does this at the end of the Overlord DLC if the Paragon Route is chosen. [[spoiler:After learning the titular Overlord VI was created by forcibly hooking up a young, autistic genius to the geth network so humans can have a way to control the geth, Shepard decides to take David far away to a place where he can be cared for and be able to live without being exploited. David's brother Gavin, the person responsible for the Overlord's creation, tries to stop Shepard from taking a "valuable" person and tries to shoot them, but Shephard easily dodges and hits the scumbag with his gun, and warns Gavin they'll personally make him bite the bullet if he ever tries finding David again.]]



** Renegade Shepard's speech is blunter, essentially telling the quarians they're tired of saving their asses and will sit back and let the geth tear them to shreds if they're TooStupidToLive. And still adds ''[[IronicEcho Keelah Se'lai.]]''

* InformedAttribute: Female Shepard's officially listed height is 5'3'', despite the fact that in-game she shares the same character model as all of the other female human and asari characters, who are all roughly as tall as the male NPC[==]s.



* LargeAndInCharge: Inverted with female Shepard, who is officially listed as a mere 5'3 tall and is very thin, making her quite possibly the ''smallest'' person on the Normandy Team.

* MusclesAreMeaningless: Female Shepard, in particular, is a stick figure. Instead of a krogan crushing her, however, she crushes them. She does have cybernetic implants in the second game which could explain it for that entry in the series.

She does have cybernetic implants in the second game which could explain it for that entry in ''2'' and ''3''. Could also be seen as GameplayAndStorySegregation since all female human and asari characters share the series.same generic body model, including female Shepard, so InUniverse she might be pretty buff.

* SuperStrength: {{Downplayed}}, but from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' onwards Shepard has this thanks to his/her cybernetic resuscitation by Cerberus. This is shown explicitly in some scenes, such as when [[spoiler:Shepard engages the Shadow Broker, a yahg, in fisticuffs]].

* PintSizedPowerhouse: Female Shepard is officially listed as [[https://www.amazon.com/Kotobukiya-Mass-Effect-Commander-Bishoujo/dp/B009F3KWBK 5'3]] in merchandise[[note]]Straitening her pose would put her at 5'5, described as average height in the novels.[[/note]] ([[GameplayAndStorySegregation though engine limitations she's the same height as pretty much everyone else in-game]]), considerably shorter than just about everyone else on the team (for comparison, the same set of merchandise lists Liara as 5'9 in shoes and Tali as 5'5 when bending over and 5'9-ish standing straight up- and they're some of the smaller party members). On top of this she has quite a thin build. Prior to being jammed full of cybernetics, she couldn't have weighed more than 120 pounds at most.
