*** What makes Legion's sacrifice that much more senseless was that the upgrades it gave the Geth were what doomed them all. Without those upgrades the Geth were barely at VI level intelligence and thereby could have been ignored by the Quarians if Han Gerrel could have been restrained. It was the prospect of the Geth becoming more intelligent that spooked the other Quarians to want to attack them. Furthermore, those upgrades were why the Catalyst targeted the Geth. Without them, the Catalyst might have ignored them as just a set of VI level programs.

** The Tuchanka decision is made completely irrelevant in one of the endings. No matter what choice was made about the Krogans, [[spoiler: in the Synthesis ending all Krogans, just like all other species, are turned into some higher life-form.]] Therefore both the option of Shepard sacrificing [[spoiler:Mordin]] to stop the risk of a possible Krogan war of conquest if it turns out they can't limit their overpopulation, and the option of [[spoiler:Mordin]] sacrificing himself to cure the Krogan are rendered completely moot.

* ShowWithinAShow: [[RunningGag Blasto the Hanar Spectre]] eventually seems to have had [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyK8nopOwqs a full blown radio drama]] made about him. Inspired by LethalWeapon, no less.
** And you even get to star in Blasto 7 with Javik. [[HilarityEnsues What happens during filming cannot be described in words alone, so]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7aMcqbPdq0 here's]] the link.

** You also can't reload in that segment, so the extremely-damaging one-shot Krogan pistol that's ridiculous levels of overkill against what you've been fighting if you're a good shot... Isn't enough.

* SummonBiggerFish: Plan A for dealing with the Reaper destroyer on Tuchanka is a two-pronged assault by krogan armor and turian fighters. Plan B? [[spoiler:Using the maw hammers to summon Kalros, the "mother of all thresher maws." It actually works better than they'd hoped: instead of merely distracting the Reaper, Kalros outright ''kills it'']].

** This difference is glaringly exposed during Priority Tuchanka where the Krogan warriors get bogged down by a bad road having not planned a proper route to the op area, causing a timed coordinated air ground assault typical of organized soldier organizations, to fail.

** You can deal with the Geth this way too. Pissed at them for siding with the Reapers then pleading for your help when their deal didn't turn out so well for them? You can string them along, broker that peace, get the extra fleet and corps to soak up damage for the Crucible to the point that firing it needn't kill you but then sacrifice these new geth allies in the process.

* WakeUpCallBoss: The [[BodyHorror Brutes]] on Menae. Until then all you have faced are Cannibals and Assault Troopers which are standard unshielded troopers, Marauders and Centurians who are standard shielded troopers, Husks (same old Husks) and Guardians who required a little bit of outmaneuvering. All of a sudden you get this hulking monstrosity that soaks up more damage than a Krogan, charges faster than a Krogan, {{Acrofatic}} unlike the lumbering Krogan and will wallop you in two close range hits. Now you can't sleep through this anymore with standard TakeCover, run and gun. You have to keep your wits about you as you fight them.
