Set in a bizarro version of the Mass Effect universe, ''Inglorious Bosh'tets'' follows Tali and her crew of complete idiots as they go from one adventure to another, each one stranger than the last. The universe itself looks like a MegaCrossover FantasyKitchenSink with Inglorious Bosh'tets and its sequel Fanfic/ProjectGethinator containing things such as [[Myth/NorseMythology Valhalla]], [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} The Warp and Chaos Gods, Chainswords]], characters from games like ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'', ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', ''StarFox'' and so on, with the characters treating all this weirdness as completely normal.

* ChaoticStupid: Tali's entire crew. Especially Prazza.
* ChewbaccaDefense: Or as the quarians know it, ''Hyyvaa Raanaa''. During Prazza's court case, his lawyer admits that this is their only hope of winning, so he goes for it. [[spoiler:By accusing ''every'' turian in C-Sec, ''and'' the opposing counsel, of being a ''geth infiltrator''. He succeeds in getting the case dismissed.]]
* ContinuityNod: In a rather subtle nod, Shepard's bank account on the Citadel contains ten million credits, which was [[Main/{{Cap}} the maximum amount you could accumulate]] in the first game. (Technically it was 9,999,999.)

* CosmicPlaything: Tali simply cannot catch a break. Even the simplest missions have a tendency to go bad. Most of the time, Prazza's aggressive stupidity is the cause.
