** RealityEnsues: However, powerful as it may be, Samsara's pockets aren't bottomless (unlike Cerberus…). [[spoiler: Resurrecting Shepard and reconstructing the Normandy (both massively-expensive projects)]] threw the organization into an immense debt, to the point that [[spoiler: Siwang Weaver had to fund the company with his own money for a short time and ask Shepard to pawn off any interesting stuff she found during her missions.]]



* NeverLiveItDown: In-Universe; Asha's ancestor, while a decent commander, accidentally got Avatar Hong killed. Her family has been considered jinxed since then, and her desire to be TheAtoner is part of the reason why she joins Shepard. It really doesn't help matters that Shepard died on Asha's watch as well…

** During a conversation between Aethyta and Shepard, the former provides an old saying that is almost exactly [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWBlKy7SLdY Renegade Shepard's summarization of the Council Races]] in the second game[[note]]Which you can only access by talking to two grounded asari on the Citadel (the ones you need to give the forged IDs), which can only occur if you [[spoiler:let the Council die]] in the first game.[[/note]], except replace the last part's answer ("If you want a problem solved…") from "human" to "quarian".

* OhCrap: Shepard's reaction upon hearing that the seemingly numberless hordes of Geth that she was fighting throughout the first part of her mission... were only about five percent of ''all'' Geth.

** [[spoiler:Abylon]] does this to Vega while they (and Garrus and Tali) were on what the turian would eventually call his favortie spot in the Citadel. [[spoiler:The hybrid]] wanted some liquor, but James kept it out of reach, and this was her response.



* HeroOfAnotherStory: Zaeed, who managed to destroy the prison ship ''Purgatory'' on his own (he took Jack's place in the recruiting process), but also managed to save all the people at the refinery... by accident.

* HumanPopsicle: [[spoiler:Javik, but instead of a stasis pod like in canon, he was sealed in diamond. This also applies to his 'daughter' Abylon. Of course, they eventually were released, but in different times]].



* MakingASplash: Tali learns how to Waterbend [[spoiler: and is later revealed to have learned Bloodbending]].

** Zaeed... is viewed as a barely-sane maniac who leaves a trail of devastation a mile wide. Even a Shepard who comes across as ''far'' more Renegade than the Avatar really should, who has ''Jack'' as a best friend, thinks that he's not worth taking on the mission.

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Shepard needs [[spoiler:Leviathan]] on her trip to the Mu Relay to [[spoiler:investigate a weapon even the Reapers considered was only as a last resort]] since without [[spoiler:the depowered Reaper]], any trip there would be hopelessly one-way [[spoiler:as only she can activate the Mass Relay on the other side]].

They don't really like each other, but they are willing to set aside (most) of their differences if it gets the job done. Later, we learn ''why'' he's a token heroic batarian... or rather, we learn why ''the batarians are so bad to begin with.'']]

* DoingInTheWizard: Wan was the first Avatar[[spoiler:, but not the first ''human'' Avatar. Also, Vaatu was actually a Reaper super weapon and did not return every ten thousand years (Korra simplified it, taking a hyperbolic "ten thousand years"--akin to Wan Shi Tong's epithet He Who Knows Ten Thousand Things--as a literal, when the cycle operated on a far greater time scale).]]

to:

''Omega'' is actually the remnants of the original Sol system, from billions of years ago, and that it was ''our'' earth, or something like it, that was the precursor race that kicked off the whole cycle. Unfortunately, they fell to shadowy spirits who formed the First Reaper, and scattered life across the galaxy.]]
