* Mentioned in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' with the right party-members on Noveria where there is a button which sets off a deadly Neutron purge. Kaidan will actually mention that it's always a good idea to RTFM before pressing any buttons, to Liara's confusion.
** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' there's a random button on Sur'Kesh that Shepard can repeatedly press, with no effect other than causing a nearby salarian to get incredibly annoyed. Eventually, the salarian informs Shepard that if their so enamoured with that button, they should get their ''own'' feces analyser.
