* IdiotBall: After already losing Nick on the Citadel, Kahlee decides it would be a good idea to let an emotionally unstable Gillian go outside for a spot of fresh air after she's announced her intentions to kill the Illusive Man. Three seconds later she's missing too. The novel does point out this was incredibly stupid thinking on Kahlee's part.
** Aria uses next to none of the security she used in previous books/the second game. Luckily for her, Kai Leng has forgotten about the advanced tactics he used in previous novels as well.
* IGaveMyWord: After one of Aria T'Loak's banks is hit by the Grim Skulls, she lets one of their captured mercenaries go after the merc tells Aria who really killed her daughter. When Aria later confronts the same merc in the Grim Skulls' medical bay, she has her transferred to a hospital, her reason being this.

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: After having used an elaborate sensor suite and multiple-member strike teams to accomplish his goals in previous novels, in this book, Kai Leng camps near a door with a vase to piss in so that he can keep a sniper rifle trained on it.

* CuttingOffTheBranches: The Citadel Council in ''Deception'' are made up of an asari, a turian, a salarian and a human. Thus, the playthrough where a Renegade Shepard sacrifices the ''Destiny Ascension'', making Udina appoint an all-human Council (as opposed to a still-mixed-species Council for a Paragon Shepard) is invalidated. ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' later confirmed this, as there is no all-human Council in it either, unless it abdicated between the games. Notably the human councilor is ''not'' identified as Udina despite ''Retribution'' implying otherwise, but his actions and personality identify him clearly as such. Nobody's sure why the author didn't name him.

* YouKilledMyFather: Gillian toward the Illusive Man, but there's a few more variations of this as well; [[spoiler:Aria to Kai Leng over her daughter, Kai Leng to Gillian over his ex-lover and Nick to Hendel over his girlfriend.]]
