** After the Grissom Academy evacuation where you meet Kahlee Sanders, Vega lets Shep know that his father's last name is also Sanders, although there's no relation between the two of them.
** The ''Citadel'' DLC adds the M-11 Suppressor heavy pistol, which means that if you possess the M-11 Wraith shotgun as well, you can now have two guns in your armory that share the same alphanumerical designation. Since this is the only such example in the entire trilogy, plus the two weapons have absolutely nothing in common aside from shooting bullets, it's probably an oversight on the part of the developers.

* RobotDog: The Collector's edition will give Shepard one - it is basically a FENRIS mech with blue 'eyes' instead of red.

* RobotDog: The Collector's edition will give gives Shepard one - it is it's basically a slightly redesigned FENRIS mech with a stubby tail and blue 'eyes' instead of red.the standard red ones. If Gabby's dialogue is anything to go by, the crew calls it "Sophie" and has grown quite fond of it, although Kenneth [[LampshadeHanging can't understand what it's supposed to be good for]]. His confusion is somewhat justified, given how Sophie is confined to the flight deck and does nothing but stroll around in circles, scan stuff (probably her equivalent of a real dog's sniffing) and occasionally take a nap squarely in the path to where you want to go, like the weapons bench for instance. It doesn't help her case that during the one event where she might've proved useful - when Shepard [[spoiler:fights their evil clone on the flight deck at the climax of the ''Citadel'' [=DLC=]]] - she's nowhere to be found.

* PreOrderBonus: Depending on where you pre-ordered the game. All of the gear mentioned below plus a lot of other promotional items have since been made available for indirect purchase with the ''Leviathan'' and ''Omega'' [=DLCs=] - except for the Defender Armor, which can only be unlocked by editing the save file. Fortunately, neither of the guns is particularly useful, and the armor - while cool-looking - is made redundant by the various Cerberus armor suits.

* NoSell: NoSell:
**
Humanoid enemies can [[UnnecessaryCombatRoll roll]] to evade projectile powers like Warp or Incinerate. Since they can roll impressive distances, it almost always negate a said power's effects. The only power that consistently no-sells this sort of NoSell is Flare, Aria T'Loak's ''Omega''-exclusive Loyalty Power - the biotic projectile is not only the single most powerful attack you can acquire in single player; it also has by far the largest impact radius, so no matter how desperately the targets try to evade it, they ''will'' get hit (and probably turned into LudicrousGibs).
** A couple of enemies (Phantoms and Rampart mechs being the worst offenders) can bring up protective shields that either reduce all weapon damage to ScratchDamage or are completely impenetrable. They also negate nearly all powers, even the hitscan ones, as long as they're active.
** Several multiplayer characters like the
N7 Destroyer also cannot be staggered by enemy attacks, no matter how powerful they are.

** When [[spoiler:the quarians go to war with the geth and get their asses handed to them, the geth's huge fleet]] continuously blocks access to the mass relay, thus trapping the entire Migrant Fleet in their home system until the conflict is resolved one way or another. Joker and [=EDI=] on the other hand make a point of telling you that the ''Normandy'' is invisible to the enemy's sensors and can leave the system at any time.
