** During Priority: Tuchanka, Shepard can find an ancient painting depicting krogan riding large beasts of war. This foreshadows a side Mission acquired on the Citadel where Shepard can find [[JurassicPark kakliosaur DNA in amber]] [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs to recreate ancient alien dinosaurs for the krogan to ride into battle]].

Added DiffLines:

** Also in the Citadel DLC, Garrus sarcastically remarks that Shepard's dancing should be broadcast to the Reapers in order to make them either "run away, melt down, or fall in love", [[spoiler: which is exactly what they do in the Control, Destroy, and Synthesis endings, respectively]].

** Javik, though he can come around a bit. In the days of the Prothean Empire most of the races now ruling the galaxy were in the most nascent stages of sentience and were thus "primitive" when compared to the technologically and biologically advanced Protheans.

** Javik, though he can come around a bit. In the days of the Prothean Empire most of the races now ruling the galaxy were in the most nascent stages of sentience and were thus "primitive" when compared to the technologically and biologically advanced Protheans. (The fact that the Protheans were a conquering empire, subjugating anyone they could, obviously does not help his outlook.)


Added DiffLines:

* FighterMageThief: James (Soldier), EDI (Engineer) and Liara (Adept) serve these roles for your Shepard. This game actually plays the combo the most straight out of any in the franchise, as the previously-listed characters are the ''only'' ones guaranteed to be on your squad; the others can either suffer {{Plotline Death}}s in previous games or be locked behind {{DLC}} paywalls. This also means that the player may not have access to ''any'' half-and-half classes (the Tech/Combat Infiltrator[[note]]Garrus[[/note]], Tech/Biotic Sentinel[[note]]Kaidan[[/note]] and Combat/Biotic Vanguard[[note]]Wrex and Javik[[/note]]) aside from their Shepard.

* HollywoodSilencer: The ''Citadel'' DLC adds the M-11 Suppressor, a variant on the ever-popular Carnifex heavy pistol with a black finish and a huge silencer mounted to the muzzle. True to form and name, it's report is the very low-key "pop" sound everyone expects to hear from a silenced gun, instead of the earsplitting crash its cousins tend to produce with every pull of the trigger. The reasoning behind this particular example makes even less sense than usual, considering how a real-life suppressor is designed to muffle the sounds of the expanding propellants inside today's firearms (which simply doesn't exist in mass accelerator weapons), and since mass effect guns rely on nothing but projectile speed to deal damage, modifying a handgun to fire sand grain-sized metal particles at subsonic speeds would make that weapon utterly useless. That doesn't translate into the game, of course, where the Suppressor serves as a powerful handgun with a ridiculously high headshot damage multiplier.
