** Shepard pulls a variation of this towards a traumatized little boy. In this case, the boy is not in any immediate danger beyond being on Earth as the Reapers invade, Shepard is simply trying to get the boy to trust him enough to let him take the boy to safety. The boy declines.

* TemptingFate: Depending on the player's choices, this could also double as {{Foreshadowing}}. After Shepard says it, [[GenreSavvy Anderson]] even says they [[LampshadeHanging shouldn't tempt fate]].

* SoLastSeason: There were gradual updates in Multiplayer with new character classes that eventually made the original classes practically obsolete. In particular was the N7 Earth update, where each were human special forces with incredibly brutal powers for each category, and the last one Reckoning, which includes unexpected characters like a Geth Juggernaut (essentially one of the boss enemies in Multiplayer), a female Turian and Alliance Infiltration unit that can revive itself as a power.

Averted with the baseline human Engineer and Adept; with their ability to set off tech or biotic combos on any enemy very quickly, they remained top-tier characters throughout all updates.

*** 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.
