Ashley of course also has shades of this, but after a conversation with some of the other crew members seems to mediate her views a little bit.
** NobleBigotWithABadge: Master Chief also expresses discomfort at the idea of taking orders from aliens before and after becoming a Spectre.

It turns out he meant [[spoiler:The Chief contacts an ODST Lieutenant named Mark Vanderloo, who's named after the Dutch underwear model on whom Male!Shepard's default appearance is based. He does allude to some of Shepard's more memetically famous attributes as well]].

* {{Foreshadowing}}: During a tour of the Citadel, Ops Chief Beckett talks to Avina about the Relay Monument and notes how no one knows for sure the meaning the Protheans imposed on it. Beckett assumes the Protheans must have been "the original trolls of the galaxy." Come MassEffect3...

* AmbiguouslyEvil: Major Danielle Ackerson of ONI. In the main story she seems fine enough ([[PetTheDog giving the people of Zhu's Hope a generous donation to rebuild their colony and giving Shiala a fairly light slap on the wrist]], for one thing), if a little shady. But in the ''Last of an Ancient Breed'' spinoff, she orders Lieutenant Nolan to summarily execute a pair of captured criminals and makes Helena Blake give her a reason not to kill her too.

* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: A twofer.
** Saren to The Prophet of Truth. Both villains lead armies of religious fanatics whilst nursing a hatred of humanity and a penchant for lying. However, Truth was a NonActionBigBad and a DirtyCoward who simply threw waves of Covenant at The Chief and fled him. Saren on the other hand, is [[AuthorityEqualsAssKicking more than capable of throwing down with The Chief in a one-on-one fight]]. Also, despite his campaign of genocide, Truth was a rather distant figure as far as The Chief is concerned, while Saren [[TheGadfly does everything he can]] [[ItsPersonal to get under John's skin]].
** The Reapers and The Flood. Both are galaxy-killing races of [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] whom the [[BenevolentPrecursors Benevolent-but-not-really Precursors]] tried and failed to stop before being driven extinct. However, The Flood were distinctly organic (albeit capable of interfacing with synthetic beings and systems) while The Reapers are synthetic beings with organic foundations. Furthermore, The Gravemind is a [[LargeHam poetic, emotional and bombastic being]] while [[ColdHam Sovereign is cold, emotionless, and plain-spoken]].
