* OffscreenVillainDarkMatter: We do find out where Cerberus gets the people to act as mooks, but how they assembled an army's worth of materiel and an entire fleet of modern warships with no infrastructure of their own beyond one command station and a few research stations (this is explicitly stated in the game) is never explained. The closest we get is the claim from EDI that they're massively funded through controlling several [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_corporation shell corporations]], which frankly [[YouKeepUsingThatWord makes even less sense]].

** The final scene of the ''Citadel'' DLC is one that works in-universe, but also feels like BioWare and the voice actors saying goodbye to the trilogy and characters.

* MythologyGag: One of the games in the Castle Arcade is called ''Shattered Eezo''. ''VideoGame/ShatteredSteel'' was Creator/{{Bioware}}'s first game.

* NotSoFastBucko: [[spoiler: As Shepard, you land in London and go to work destroying a Reaper anti-aircraft canon. A little while later, the Hammer forces mobilize toward the beam, fighting their way toward an artillery battery to take down a reaper guarding it. The guidance system fails, so you hold your position with your squad while EDI reprograms the guidance system. You are hit by Marauders, Cannibals, Brutes and Banshees. But you hold the line and then fire the remaining missiles and the Reapers goes down. And then Harbinger descends, and your dwindling forces make a dash for the beam, getting fired upon as they do. You are momentarily taken out, but you recover, and badly wounded, you limp toward the beam. Three husks come after you, but you don't let them stop you. A Marauder ambushes you, but you've come too far to be taken out. You drop just close enough, and you're transported to the Citadel. You recover surrounded by dead bodies, but at least someone else made it through. Admiral Anderson is elsewhere, tying to unlock the Citadel. As soon as you find him, you are beset upon by the Illusive Man, now with the power to control your physical actions. You try to reason with him, and maybe you succeed, but not before getting you to shoot Anderson in the gut, maybe not even before he can finish him himself, but one way or the other, the Illusive Man goes down. You stagger to the console and open up the arms, you slump down nearby, and maybe you have a moment of peace with Anderson, and talk about the future to come before he succumbs to his injuries. Maybe you're close to that, yourself, but you have no regrets, as you finally did it, and think it's over.]] It's not.

*** Certain powers were modified to prevent misuse. Sabotage can turn any Geth against their faction for around 10 seconds. An entire team with Sabotage and you don't have to fire a shot. Bioware made the more powerful Geth enemies have a very short cool down on that, Geth Prime's may only turn against the others for a couple of seconds, and gradually gain immunity if one is hit with it multiple times. Combat Drones and especially Decoy's were extremely effective in distracting enemies, Banshee's in particular are most deadly with their TeleportSpam and would harmlessly bounce off Decoy's looking like they have no idea what to do. The distraction from Decoy's was almost removed altogether, making it one of the most useless powers afterwards.

**It's justified in that the DLC was meant to be a send off to the characters and world of the trilogy.

* ProfaneLastWords: If you don't do a certain side mission, the DarkActionGirl Jack, one of your squadmates from part two, is captured by Cerberus, tortured, and has her personality effectively erased to convert her into a Phantom. You later discover a video log of her final hours (as herself), [[DefiantToTheEnd showing her dropping F-bombs all the way]].

* OminousVisualGlitch: In the ''Citadel'' DLC's Armax Arena, the unlockable map "Fatal Error" consists of multiple background images on the arena's monitors, shifting textures, and other visual glitches, in addition to the fact that when you first begin the stage, you can actually die due to damage levels of enemies exceeding safety levels.

* MightyGlacier: Krogan multi-player characters, who have much less agility than the other races but have far higher HP, Shields, and resistance to damage.
** Similarly, batarian characters, and N7 Destoyers, whose suits incorporate a ''missile launcher''.
** Surprisingly not the case with the N7 Paladin. Despite what might be inferred from his name and signature "omni-shield," he's actually more of a DPS kit than a tank.
** [[DropTheHammer Krogan Warlords]] deserve a particular mention, since their size makes it impossible for Husks or Abominations to grab them. On top of that, they are [[MightyGlacier Mighty Glaciers]] among ''Krogans'', and can regenerate their health.
** But the Mightiest and [[BuffySpeak Glacier-iest]] of all the characters arrived in the Geth Juggernaut, who is the size of a Geth Prime, immune to [[OneHitKO Sync-Kills]] and unable to walk faster than a purposeful stroll.

** Averted in the case of Mordin, Miranda and Kasumi whose contributions as War Assets are as a researcher on the Crucible, an advisor on Cerberus and as a technician on the Crucible respectively. Their count is still 25 though.

** The term "Banshee" to describe asari husks becomes a lot more meaningful if you think about their origins. Banshees are made from Ardat Yakshi or Demons of the night winds, so those people were already considered demons before the Reapers got hold of them. And now these demons wail and screech a lot. The term to describe a demon known for wailing and screeching - Banshee!
