** And again in the Citadel DLC, where Shepard both trolls and gets trolled ''extensively.'' They reach a new level of trolling when they [[{{BelligerentSexualTension}} find an opportunity to mess with Jack and Miranda.]]

* TheAce: Shepard is regularly stated to be the most [[WorldsBestWarrior skilled and lethal soldier in the galaxy]] and [[MagneticHero their charisma becomes practically legendary]] in ''2'' and ''3''. [[OvershadowedByAwesome This actually causes some minor (major in Miranda's case) inferiority issues among a number of squad members]]. Beyond that, Shepard has a near flawless success rate, often with near suicidal odds. Over the trilogy, not counting the Collectors' ambush on the first Normandy (which was due to a failure of the stealth system rather than anything in Shepard's control), the hero is only shown to lose ''once'', on Thessia, which sends him/her into a brief HeroicBSOD.

* ThePowerOfLove: Paragon options ''really'' help turn the tide in your favor, for the most part. [[spoiler:At least until ''3'' rolls around, where Paragon Interrupts end up not working as well as you'd want them to...]] * ThePowerOfHate: And Renegade options work just as well as Paragon options. [[spoiler:And again, just like Paragon options, ''3'' comes up and being a Renegade becomes ''extremely'' unadvisable in many occasions.]]

** RebuiltPedestal: Once the Reapers show up and Shepard's actions are given more context, most of the galaxy becomes willing to rally behind them, and if played correctly, Kaidan[=/=]Ashley and Shepard become friends[=/=]lovers again.

** Is seen as this by quite a few people in ''Mass Effect 2'', particularly Ashley/Kaidan, since they're forced to work with Cerberus. Particularly in Ashley's example, when you consider that just seconds earlier she had berated an ungrateful colonist that Shepard had rescued and told him that he was "standing in the presence of a ''God''", then immediately [[WhatTheHellHero chews you out for working with Cerberus.]]

* FakingTheDead: Subverted. Shepard really was [[spoiler:killed and brought back]]. However, only a very small pool of people were aware of the Lazarus Project. Everyone else, including most of Shepard's friends and allies, only ''thought'' that Shepard's death was faked and behaved accordingly.

* TakeThat: Engineer Shepard seems to [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall lean on the fourth wall]] a little in the Omega DLC, when he bypasses a lot of the work other Shepards would have to do, saying that he's no "grunt" soldier - taking a shot at the non-Engineer Shepards.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: To both the Council and the Alliance after he/she runs into the Prothean beacon on Eden Prime. No one other than Anderson or Shepard's crew really believes his/her theories about the Reapers coming back to harvest all organic life in the galaxy, but, much like [[Series/TheXFiles Fox Mulder]], they let him/her go on about the alien conspiracy because of how good he/she is at his/her job. Of course, since Shepard was right about everything, he/she's also a CassandraTruth, but the dynamic still existed between Shepard and his/her superiors prior to ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''.
