* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The entire trilogy. The Reapers are defeated, Art gets the girl, and he lives on a peaceful Rannoch. However, Earth was destroyed, humanity is in shambles because of it, several characters died along the way, the galaxy is far from being in a state of peace, and Art has to deal with the trauma of what he's been through.]]

* ConvenientlyUnverifiableCoverStory: Art creates a rather elaborate cover story for the rest of the Mass Effect crew to bite into to hide the fact that he's from another universe. Subverted in that he's not actually a mole for anyone.

* InformedAbility: Art's bisexuality is rarely mentioned after Mass Vexations 1, since he never seems to note male character's attractiveness and winds up getting into a relationship with Tali before the Suicide Mission.
** He did get mildly taken with James Vega's muscles upon first meeting him, though.

* OrwellianRetcon: The character of [[spoiler:Ethan Sunderland]] was eventually retconned out of Mass Vexations 3.



* PinchMe: Art speculates that he is in a dream upon showing up at the Citadel. He promptly slaps himself, realizing that he is, in fact, in a real world.

* PyrrhicVictory: Let's just say that Mass Vexations 3 ''loves'' this trope.
** In Chapter 18, [[spoiler: Daro'Xen has been exiled, the impostor is dead, the Cerberus troops are destroyed, the Reaper is dead and, at least theoretically, the quarians and the geth can make peace... but Tali was mentally tortured, Legion was attacked and nearly died, Nogond is dead and the Reapers know about the Fade.]]

* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: As given by [[spoiler:Art when he tells the rest of the ground team after Jacob tells]], it's more like a World Of Cardboard Lecture.

** Art references [[SuperSmashBrothers Captain Falcon]] twice: the first comes during Tali's loyalty mission when he commands Kasumi to use her punch move on a geth, and the second time comes when he headbutts Uvenk.

** And of course, Art usually finds a way to work in song lyrics from various musicals/musical movies into his trains of thought. Popular songs for him to use have come from ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'', RodgersAndHammerstein, and ''Theatre/WestSideStory'', though he has referenced other songs on occasion. (''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' even comes up at one point.)

* CaptainErsatz: Turian mythology apparently has its own versions of [[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos]] and [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins the Grey Wardens]]. And then there's ''Contact Point 3'', which is essentially VideoGame/DeadSpace on the Normandy. On top of that, there's a fairly obvious {{Expy}} of [[HeavyRain Norman Jayden]] that appears at the Citadel at one point. Art is quick to lampshade the similarities when he hears about them.

** However if you notice that [[spoiler:Art is the first three letters of his six letter first name, some Google research can give you an approximation of his actual real name. Hint: look to the MistsOfAvalon]].
