* BroughtDownToBadass: Even when turned into a pony, with no access to any of his weapons, or even ''fingers'', he still holds off a ''literally'' endless swarm of Royal Guard security programs long enough for his companions to complete their objective.



* GeniusBruiser: Strong enough to kill a manticore bare-hoofed and a excellent tactician who correctly deduced the nature of the Equestria simulation before it's confirmed.



* VillainHasAPoint: Shepard begrudgingly agrees with her argument for keeping Equestria secret that, even in the seemingly impossible event he stops the Reapers, the Council would be unable and uninitiated in her subjects wellbeing in a galaxy more moral gray then they're prepared to face. Twilight also confirms her claims that she would have gone along with her plans once she realizes what's at stake. Ultimately, it takes a DebateAndSwitch to get her to stand down.



* FreudianExcuse: Her dream growing up was to be a xenoarchaeologist, only to face so much red tape she turned to Cerberus since they gave her the opportunity and funding her carry out her ambitions.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: A DeadpanSnarker turian C-Sec CowboyCop sniper who's at odds with [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight the rules]] and [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch his species stereotypes]]. Are we talking about Taxar or [[Characters/MassEffectGarrusVakarian Garrus Vakarian]]?



* TheChessmaster: Her use of firebombs on New Ponyville was the perfect distraction, creating widespread panic with a minimum of actual casualties while she went about her work. And when facing Twilight, instead of fighting against her, she instead laid down her weapons and used her connection with the Shadow Broker as leverage to convince Twilight to let her go.

When facing Rainbow Dash, [[XanatosSpeedChess she takes advantage of this]] to force her opponents into a SadisticChoice. And when facing Twilight, instead she deploys her MechaMooks in such a way that they would have overwhelmed her [[SpannerInTheWorks if not for 42 of 50]], after which she surrenders gracefully and attempts to negotiate her walking away [[{{Blackmail}} by threatening to reveal the Heard illicit secrets otherwise]].
* MechaMooks: Fields a large number of LOKI mechs that serve as CannonFodder and a pair of [[GiantMook YMIR mechs]] deployed once her foe are exhausted from

!!!The Turian Council member. Master of the air quotes, and just as much of a jerk toward Equestrians as he is toward humans.
* {{Jerkass}}: The only Councilor to take a stance against the Equestrians and vote against granting them "endangered species" status.

* GoodIsNotSoft: One of the challenges she faces early on as leader of the Herd is demonstrating that despite their cuddly appearance, low numbers, and friendly personalities, Equestrians are ''not'' weak, and won't be bullied.

* OneWomanArmy: Goes into this mode when rescuing her abducted people from the asari merc who attacked New Ponyville. Her biotics allow her to plow through the security mechs between her and the asari (and this is still ''before'' she gets a biotic amp), and she isn't truly in danger of being overwhelmed until the asari breaks out a pair of YMIR heavy mechs.

* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Her bringing up the Equestrians NoNudityTaboo on public television. While it was embarrassing to everyone, she insisted it was necessary to get them to realize that [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom it was an significant issue that was being ignored]] and that they had to deal with it.
* LikeADuckTakesToWater: Proves herself to be the member of the Mane Six who needs to change the least in order to adapt to life outside of Equestria. In Arc 1 of ''Shades of Twilight'', she's the one who points out that Equestrians' [[NoNudityTaboo tendency to go naked]] is an issue with other species that needs to be addressed, adapts very quickly to the advanced technology of the Citadel, and shows considerable business savvy in the cross-species market.
* SkewedPriorities: Twilight and everyone else ''thinks'' she has this going on when she's adamant that the Equestrians need to start wearing clothes as a species. Rarity finally spells out for them that other species are embarrassed or ashamed by their relative nudity, and it is in fact a very big deal in the minds of other races.

* GuileHero: She's in the lower tier of biotic potential for an Equestrian, so she relies more on her recent legal training to help the Herd.
* TheOnlyOne: As the first (and currently only) Equestrian to have passed the Citadel Litigation Association's Bar exam, she's pretty much the District Attorney by default, and the only one who can represent the Herd as a litigator.

* LaserGuidedKarma: Delivers some to Councilor Sparatus. After the Councilor votes against granting the Herd "endangered species" protections, 42 accesses C-Sec's databases to get Sparatus's car impounded. This has the added benefit of pulling Sparatus out of the meeting when it comes time to decide on granting the Equestrians a district in which to settle.
