Added DiffLines:

** In the second Citadel arc, in a crime scene from cop murders supposedly done by Adam, the human Spectre candidates find a mix of an OrgyOfEvidence and a lack of evidence at the same time that tips off most of those there that something is wrong, namely: (1) everything very neatly points to Adam being the perpetrator, which does not fit his psych profile at all, (2) the scene has absolutely no smell and (3) there's evidence of at least ''three'' different fighters.


Added DiffLines:

* TokenHeroicOrc: In the flashback in Neo-Kobe, Julien Seed sides with Adam despite his exposure as a Snatcher. Fastforward to present-day and [[spoiler:Bailey does the same]].

Terrans can outfight and outsmart and fight even dirtier than either of them can. What will happen to the Turians if they declare war on humanity and LOSE? What happens to the Salarians when the humans dig up all their dirty little secrets and cause their government to crumble? Even the Quarians face this somewhat with the Omar: Bassac said it himself:

--> As mistreated as they are, the Quarians survive economically by hiring out as scabs or doing shit work. The Omar can do it just as good as they can and they've managed to avoid the wrath of the entire galaxy, so what's going to happen to all those poor Pilgrims?
--> And the Fiera? Well, let's just say it'll be a while before the Asari will lose their 'wise, culturally superior to everyone' spot, but they're not stupid. They see the writing on the wall. There's a reason why there are so few male Fiera left.

In particular, Jensen hopelessly attempts to resuscitate a salarian that collapsed dead after four days of partying, with no sleep in between.
