* NoodleIncident: Everything that occurred during the events of VideoGame/MassEffect1, as [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in ''Requiem'' when Vega presses Garrus for more details. In particular, though, is an event referenced by Tali in ''Razor's Edge'' she calls the "Tartarus incident" when Shepard [[NotSoStoic lost his cool]] against a gang of pirates who were apparently [[BerserkButton torturing kidnapped colonist children]]. The fact that the pirates then threatened to [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil rape and kill Tali]] really pushed Shepard [[UnstoppableRage over the edge.]] It should be noted that the incident in question is nowhere to be found in the game (there aren't even any locations called Tartarus in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'').

* AdaptationalVillainy: It is indirectly confirmed [[spoiler: by a fully-indoctrinated Kai Leng that The Illusive Man is not indoctrinated by the Reapers, and he is pursuing an agenda to take control of the Reaper fleet on his own.]]

Although again, [[SubvertedTrope subverted]], as by the time Anderson and Shepard confront him on the Citadel, he has become fully indoctrinated and events play out much like they did in the canon game.]]



* DentedIron: [[spoiler: Shepard is permanently handicapped in the ending, as his cybernetics were of Reaper origin and were shut down by the Crucible's abort command. He has lost all vision in one eye and must use a cane to walk.]]



* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue: The ending of ''Requiem'' takes five years after the final battle at Earth and updates us briefly on exactly where most of the ''Normandy's'' crew are in their lives now.



* YouAreInCommandNow: The mantle of leadership (as well as Spectre status) unexpectedly falls onto Garrus's shoulders after the events of [[WhamEpisode Utukku]].

* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler: In the ending, nobody really knows how long Shepard has left to live what with his Cerberus cybernetic implants becoming nonfunctional, and he's fully aware any day could be his last.]]

* GenreSavvy: Anderson is well aware that [[BerserkButton harming Shepard's crew]] is a [[TooDumbToLive BAD idea]]. When Vega and a group of marines were going to take Shepard into custody Anderson personally told Vega that any threats against the crew would go badly, that it went double for Garrus, and that 'god help your stupid grunt soul if the quarian on that crew manifest gets caught in the line of fire.'

The trilogy focuses strongly on a Shepard/Tali pairing, with much [[AdaptationExpansion expansion]] to the canon plot as well as copious helpings of CharacterDevelopment, AwesomeMoments, and HeartwarmingMoments.

** Shepard and his team never go to Sanctuary in ''Requiem.'' Instead, they discover Cronos Station thanks to the fact that some of the Leviathans' thralls were Cerberus sleeper agents and Leviathan was able to extract the location of the station by putting together bits of information from various agents. Because of that, the plot-important events of Sanctuary take place on Cronos, although [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome we don't see how Miranda dealt with her father.]]

Because of that, the plot-important events of Sanctuary take place on Cronos, although [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome we don't see how Miranda dealt with her father.]] In addition to that, there are very few Cerberus troops on Cronos so it's more or less a straight shot from the hangar to the control center. Shepard attributes that last part to Kai Leng losing his mind and becoming obsessed with [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou killing Shepard personally.]]


Added DiffLines:

* GenderRestrictedAbility: According to Kai Leng, Phantoms can only be created from human females that are between the ages of seventeen and thirty.


Added DiffLines:

* OrcusOnHisThrone: In the assault on Cronos Station, [[spoiler: Kai Leng is more than content to sit in The Illusive Man's chair and just watch Shepard and friends fight off his Phantoms, all the while spewing out insults at Shepard as well as [[InfoDump exposition]] on the Phantoms and where TIM is. It isn't until the Phantoms are defeated does he get up to fight.]]

* ManipulativeEditing: In ''Dark Witness'', the video file the Shadow Broker sends to [[spoiler: Tali]] is [[NotWhatItLooksLike designed to cast Shepard in the worst possible light.]] Also, in ''Requiem'', [[spoiler: a fully indoctrinated Kai Leng is convinced he can beat Shepard because the Reapers have shown to Leng in his dreams all the traumas and fears Shepard has. As Shepard points out to Leng, the Reapers only showed Leng what they ''wanted'' him to see: they conveniently ignored all the times Shepard has defeated the Reapers and their mind games.]]

Kai Leng. Who manages to shrug off [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice being impaled in the chest.]] (Which killed him in the actual game.)) And on Cronos Station, we see that [[spoiler: he fully upgrades himself with Reaper implants, mutating into a horrific man-machine abomination that barely looks human.]]



** Cerberus Phantoms were just a bunch of EliteMooks in the game. In ''Requiem'', they make their debut very late in the story and are treated as a sort of PraetorianGuard. [[spoiler: Although a SubvertedTrope, as Kai Leng still says they're expendable and easily replaced, and Shepard and his team don't have too much trouble taking care of them despite their grand entrance.]]
* AdaptationalVillainy: It is indirectly confirmed [[spoiler: by a fully-indoctrinated Kai Leng that The Illusive Man is not indoctrinated by the Reapers, and he is pursuing an agenda to take control of the Reaper fleet on his own.]]
