* RealityEnsues: C-Sec discovered a good part about Eric when he arrived at the Mass Effect universe. How did they find out? By looking at his ID card. See SureLetsGoWithThat below for more. Also, after Eric got his credentials, C-Sec brought him in to question him. After they found out he was clean for the most part, they let him go.

Added DiffLines:

** Natalie mentioned [[Fanfic/MassesToMasses Ian Shaw turning an elcor serial killer to C-Sec]] while picking Eric up, much to Eric's and Natalie's bemusement.
** The protagonist Natalie's playing as in [[FictionalVideoGame Redeemer]] is a DistaffCounterpart of [[{{Anime/Berserk}} Guts]], abet one [[DemonicPossession possessed]], wielding fire-based powers as a result. Even the description of her sword's taken word-for-word from the series' RunningGag. With that in mind, a demon-possessed knight-like character with fire powers also bears a DistaffCounterpart resemblance to [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Nightmare]]. Even the wording of the sword's discription to the Dragonslayer's similar.
-->In the warrior’s hands was a two-handed sword, though it was too big to be called a sword. It was massive, thick, heavy, and far too rough. Indeed, it was a heap of iron.

* [[WorldOfSnark Multiverse of Snark]]: A vast majority of the characters in the series are notable snarkers, especially the Courier. Even others who aren't known for being smartasses get opportunities to make some quips, including Jocelyn Song and Eric Grimes.

to:

* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Goes along with RotatingProtagonist. So far, each entry in the series (''Redemption in the Stars'', ''A New Day'', and ''All the World's a Stage'') features different protagonists. As such:
** ''Redemption in the Stars'' has Ethan Sunderland, aka the Courier, who's a (though implied) multi-ethnic man with a sarcastic and somewhat selfish streak, though he is willing to help his friends out.
** Meanwhile, in ''A New Day'', Eric Grimes is also multi-ethnic (half-Hispanic and half-caucasian) and male but gay. He comes off as meek and shy yet intelligent, having parents, grandparents, and siblings.
** In ''All the World's a Stage'', Jocelyn Song, aka the Lone Wanderer, is female and half-Asian and half-black. She comes off as a more traditional hero, one who is kind and even-handed, compared to the other protagonists, though haunted by her [[MyGreatestFailure percieved failures]].

** And earlier on, when Ethan attempts to bargain for information by taking a Centurion hostage, the other Blue Suns call him out on the unprovoked killing he has done before. Ethan rebukes this, calling them out on their MoralMyopia.

* [[DifferentWorldDifferentMovies Different World, Different Games]]: While Eric was browsing the Extranet to find out about the Mass Effect universe's counterpart of his family as well as its consistency, he found out what games Creator/BioWare had been doing, lasting 25 years from 1998 to 2023. They've released a third game in the Franchise/BaldursGate series called Black Hound. It was obvious they never released Mass Effect (duh). Meanwhile, Franchise/DragonAge was in development at one point but it ended up being too expensive much to make, so it was shelved. VideoGame/JadeEmpire received a sequel on the Xbox 360. Instead, there was the SFX franchise, built on similar premises to Mass Effect. [=BioWare=] had also collaborated with Creator/ObsidianEntertainment on to create some sort of a modern spy RPG called Everything or Nothing, which sounded like VideoGame/AlphaProtocol.
