* {{Badass}}
** Kai Leng. The man can wipe out squads of heavily armed opponents using nothing but a knife and a pistol. He was recruited into Cerberus because he was able to kill a krogan, a species with incredible physical strength and regenerative abilities, with a {{knife|Nut}} (note that the way he killed it is not supposed to be possible InUniverse, meaning the writer did not do the research; in addition, it is in the largely-dismissed novel ''Deception''). It should be noted that, until he killed said krogan and was subsequently recruited by Cerberus, he had served as an N7 special forces operative, just like [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] and Anderson, making him among the biggest human badasses since only they can even attempt to qualify to become an N7.

*** Actually, dialogue from Zaeed Massini (a DLC character) mentions that it IS possible to kill a krogan, with a knife planted in a very specific area that can lead to a krogan's plate being ripped off.

* AndIMustScream: One of the main plot elements of the book is Reaper indoctrination. Of course this is in [[IncrediblyLamePun effect]].

** FridgeBrilliance: The Elcor are heavyworlders, evolving on a planet where the high gravity means a simple tumble can cause serious injury or death. Naturally, jokes based on the subject of knocking people over or throwing them around hit their DudeNotFunny button--it's not so much the case that Calyn is a humorless alien so much as Anderson sounds like he thinks [[ComedicSociopathy hurting people is funny]].

* HumorlessAliens: Anderson, while having lunch with Calyn, jokes about attacking Din Korlak (Calyn's office mate, about whom he had been complaining) and "watching the butterball roll out the door". Calyn finds this joke disturbing, and notes that he's unsettled by humanity's sense of humour.
