* TimeAbyss: Doctor studying states it has been Chandana and his team establish that a race in a damaged state for about cycle 37 million years information ago managed to hole it with a mass effect supergun. It predates modern mammals, and apparently Harbinger didn't know it was still intact since he got from the Reaper indoctrination.never attempted to find and repair it, but it can still turn humans into various Husk-forms.

* NotSoStoic: He's very unflappable, but when Shepard begins throwing his plans down the poop chute, his stoicism begins to crack.

* ItsPersonal: It becomes increasingly obvious as the games and battles rage on that Shepard's touched a nerve in him, to say the least.

* NoNonsenseNemesis: Harbinger does not fuck around with Shepard. He has the Collectors ambush and kill Shepard in the first ten minutes of the second game and then spent years attempting to acquire his/her body to be completely sure that s/he's dead. Afterwards, he pulls all the stops and traps possible to kill Shepard again. This culminates in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', when he abandons the space battle over Earth to personally come down and blast Shepard himself.

It didn't pan out, but he wanted proof and [[NeverFoundTheBody didn't just assume Shepard was dead]].

Like Saren in the first game, the Collector's theme is used as the Game Over music.

!The Human Reaper

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/human-reaper_3122.jpg]]

A new Reaper that was being constructed by the Collectors. It was the reason for the Collectors abducting human colonies in the Terminus systems and taking the colonists to the Collector base. The colonists were broken down into genetic material and pumped through tubes that lead to the Reaper itself. The Reaper was destroyed by Commander Shepard while it was largely incomplete.

The Derelict
Reaper

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/human-reaper_3122.jpg]]

-->'''Voiced by''': N/A

A new two-kilometer-long Reaper orbiting the Brown Dwarf Mnemosyne. It maintained a mass effect field that was being constructed by the Collectors. It was the reason for the Collectors abducting human colonies in the Terminus systems and taking the colonists to the Collector base. The colonists were broken down kept it from falling into genetic material the failed star, but massive holes had been blasted and pumped through tubes melted into parts of the hull and remain unrepaired. The only logical conclusion is that lead the Reaper "died" or was at least reduced to minimal functioning a long time ago.

The Illusive Man sends Commander Shepard
to the Reaper itself. to investigate why Dr. Chandana's team has ceased communication and to search for the Reaper's Identify Friend/Foe tag, which would allow the Normandy to safely utilize the Omega 4 Relay. When Shepard's squad boarded the Reaper, it's kinetic barriers engaged, trapping them aboard. The barriers can only be disengaged by destroying the ship's core, which will also disengage the mass effect field keeping the Reaper from falling into Mnemosyne's gravity well. Fighting through the husks made from the Cerberus team, Shepard acquires the IFF and reaches the core. There, the squad encounters a lone geth, who is incapacitated by a wave of attacking husks. Shepard fought through waves of Husks and destroyed the Reaper's core. He/She and his/her squad escaped with the inactive geth to the Normandy just before the Reaper was destroyed by Commander Shepard while it was largely incomplete.Mnemosyne's atmosphere.

Added DiffLines:


* AbusivePrecursors: It is a Reaper.
* AlmostDeadGuy: Justified as it is a mechanical EldritchAbomination.
* CoolStarship: It ''is'' the starship.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Even when nearly dead it trapped Shepard and their squad inside itself and it's heavily implied its sentience still existed in the Reaper IFF they took and successfully trapped the Normandy for the Collectors ''despite'' the many precautions the crew took.
* DentedIron: See NighInvulnerability.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Was on the receiving end of this, [[ShoutOut but even a dead god can dream]].
* EldritchAbomination: It is a [[CthulhuMythos squid-shaped]] [[CoolStarship starship.]] In fact, it's conscious and able to fight you, in a way, despite being dead.
* EldritchLocation: Played with. It's interior corridors are described as having disorienting, oppressive contours. See WombLevel below for more.
* FightingAShadow: Played with. At first the closest you get to fighting it in the game is through the waves of husks that attack you. Then you get to its power core and have to destroy it, during which it sends waves of husks to stop you.
* LoadBearingBoss: Justified as you're [[WombLevel fighting inside the boss]].
* MindControl: Indoctrination". This is where it's revealed that Reapers can do it even when they're dead.
* MindRape: Indoctrination.
* NighInvulnerability: Though it's badly damaged, a glancing shot from the weapon that crippled it gouged a canyon out of the surface of a planet that can be seen from space.
* NightOfTheLivingMooks: Summons waves of husks and scions to attack you, heavily implied to be made from the huskfied remains of the Cerberus team.
* OnlyMostlyDead: Justified as it is a mechanical
* SapientShip: Par for the course when it comes to the Reapers, though in this case a nearly dead one
* UnderestimatingBadassery: He was the first, [[DefeatMeansRespect and last]], Reaper to underestimate Commander Shepard.
* TimeAbyss: Doctor studying states it has been in a damaged state for about 37 million years[[spoiler:information he got from the Reaper indoctrination]].
* TheVoiceless: It never speaks.
* WalkingSpoiler: Simply realizing it's existence and that its nature infers it is ''a character'' is a spoiler in and of itself, as that's not revealed until after the attack on the Collector ship (more than halfway through the game, at minimum).
* WombLevel: The fight takes you inside the Reaper.

* WorthyOpponent: Gives a backhanded compliment that he considers Shepard to be one in ''Arrival''. Considering the massive ego of Reapers, this is actually quite high praise.

** He keeps it up in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''; the first move the Reapers make is to steam straight towards Earth in the hopes of killing Shepard. [[spoiler:And then he slips up at the very end, when he forgets to check if Shepard is dead after [[{{BeamSpam}} Beam Spamming]] Hammer Fleet to death]].

To be fair, there was no way for Harbinger to check, and was probably aware Shepard survived and counted on The Illusive Man to finish him, which he very nearly did]].

** [[spoiler: In the third game, he wastes no time firing at Shepard with his main gun. In the low EMS endings anyway; if the EMS is high enough, he won't fire at Shepard until after his/her squadmates have evacuated the battlefield. But either way, he hits his target with ease and it's a miracle Shepard survived the blast at all.]]
