* CombatPragmatist: Ustrina [[spoiler: the AI]] pulls out all the stops against Chief and his team, including: [[spoiler: rigging omni-tools with deadman triggers to prevent hacking, installing cyanide gas tanks throughout the ship, cutting off the team's communications, and even simply holds off Cortana by choosing to erect powerful firewalls around her rather than face her directly.]]



* GenreSavvy - Mixes with CombatPragmatist, Ustrina [[spoiler: the AI]] pulls out all the stops against Chief and his team, including: [[spoiler: rigging omni-tools with deadman triggers to prevent hacking, installing cyanide gas tanks throughout the ship, cutting off the team's communications, and even simply holds off Cortana by choosing to erect powerful firewalls around her rather than face her directly.]]



* [[EvilCounterpart Good Counterpart]]: "Slip to the Future" is this for the Terra Firma party. It's an inclusive party comprised of many non-humans that nonetheless advocates Slipspace technology, an FTL technology (and humanity's primary method of FTL travel pre-Citadel) that the Council has banned. Mostly the same agenda, but none of the FantasticRacism.

*** On a similar note, there is the fact that the story starts out with him being found by an unrelated party [[Film/{{Aliens}} aboard a derelict ship]], with his [[Game/MassEffect next adventure]] being a GenreShift from [[Franchise/{{Halo}} from the previous one]].

** Chief tries to hide the fact that Cortana managed to hack the Geth at Feros. Unfortunately for him, his teammate is a Quarian, whose Hat is both Technology and [=AI's=], so she's immediately suspicious when he claims ''he'' hacked the Geth.



%%* SmugSnake: Doctor Saelon, [[spoiler: Kai Leng, and Miranda]]

to:

%%* * SmugSnake: Doctor Saelon, who faces Garrus with a smile on his face, certain that he won't get punished for the absolutely horrible things he's done, since he's a potential knowledge source on Saren and the Flood. This quickly ends when [[spoiler: Garrus shoves him in a room with an unthawed Flood Infection Form]].
**
Kai Leng, and Miranda]]Miranda. Both Cerberus operatives, both highly effective. Miranda manages to outwit the Arbiter, confident in her ability to do so, and only fails because the Arbiter is too suspicious to accept her datapad (which was bugged anyway). Kai Leng is similar, except he's crazier.

* AdaptationalHeroism: One thing that Chief ''really'' struggles with is that all the aliens previously dedicated to wiping him out are now friends of humanity.



*** Though it's not just human stuff- he is working on a thesis paper comparing Asari writings to his own culture, and [[ShipTease has looked up information on Quarian reproduction habits]].



** Surprisingly, there is actually pushback among the Sangheli, as one Zealot confides to the Arbiter. Said Zealot is worried that with the influence of foreign cultures, their way of life is slowly dying out. The Arbiter gently rejects this, claiming that all things change and the wise and successful change with them. They both do agree that neither of them like Frankenstein Joe, though.



** ODST [[spoiler: Vanderloo]] suggests that Chief punch al-Jilani if she tries to interview him again, similar to how Shepard could in canon.

** ODST [[spoiler: Vanderloo]] suggests that Chief punch al-Jilani if she tries to interview him again, similar to how Shepard could in canon. [[spoiler: For the record, Mark Vanderloo is a real-world male model whose likeness was used for the appearance of the default male Shepard in the games]].



** The party "Slip to the Future" reveals that this trope is the reason they're hoping for the Kig'yar to be the next Council Race after humanity- while the Sangheli are stronger militarily, their hat is being strong warriors... and ''only'' strong warriors. They're still overcoming millenia of being warriors exclusively, and trying to catch up on how to take care of themselves.



%%* TheStationsOfTheCanon:

to:

%%* TheStationsOfTheCanon:* TheStationsOfTheCanon: While things have changed in this new universe, by and large the places Chief stops at are ones that you need to in the first Mass Effect game- Therum, Noveria, Eden Prime, and Feros prime among them. There are additions, to be sure- inclusion of Covenant species, a secret Forerunner bunker on Eltania, and more, but the major plot points are familiar enough.


Added DiffLines:

* WhiteMansBurden: An example without white men... or men, actually. Kaidon Tyrannai has begun training Vorcha to supplement the Covenant forces. He explains that he remembers the Old Covenant, and views parts of it fondly... though he does gloss over the nastier aspects, he does admit that it failed when it came to the Prophets and humanity. He claims that it's the role of the stronger species of the galaxy to uplift and guide the weaker ones, in this case, the Vorcha[[note]]While this does come across as condescending, even in canon Mass Effect the Vorcha are considered barely better than vermin, and the Vorcha homeworld of Heshitok is described as a hellscape of lava and warring, anamalistic Vorcha tribes. Time will tell how this plays out in the story[[/note]].

Added DiffLines:

* DistractedByTheSexy: At one point, the Master Chief is riding an aircar whose screen is playing an ad starring an Elite as Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike. He tells Cortana to [[{{Squick}} shut it off]], but she's not listening to him.
-->'''Chief''': I don't even want to know.
-->'''Cortana''': In my defense, that elite was ''ripped''.

* ShowWithinAShow: Apparently there is a licensed Master Chief children's cartoon, which Ashley watched as a kid. It only lasted one season, which Ashley attributes to [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory toon Chief's annoying Unggoy sidekick]].

The simplest way to describe this crossover is [[XMeetsY Master Chief put in Commander Shepard's boots]], and for such a simple premise, it is ''awesome.''
