* Which is?[[labelnote:Explanation]] A rare and glaring case where the Bioware devs ''didn't'' [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything think of everything]]. When Morrigan says that the ruins in the Arbor Wilds are the Temple of Mythal, ''all'' PC's respond with "Which is?" This makes sense enough for humans or dwarves or qunari, but for elves, who are invariably Dalish and can play themselves as deeply devout to their pantheon, it's a rather glaring oversight and makes it seem like the elven Inquisitor doesn't understand a temple devoted to arguably the prime deity of their religion. It's often brought up in bitterness about how anything other than human PC's are added on later, sometimes while cutting corners.[[/labelnote]]

** Trap! Right ahead! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Meanwhile, Leliana has a tendency to notice traps right after the PC (or Alistair) has walked into them. (It helps that she can be a bit of a [[CloudCuckooLander Cloud Cuckoolander]].)[[/labelnote]]

* [[AscendedMeme Blasto]], the [[http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Entertainment#Blasto_the_Jellyfish_Stings first]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwfH9oHOzRQ Hanar Spectre]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]On the now defunct Bioware boards one of the developers posted the joking idea of Blasto during Mass Effect 2's development. Then the actual game contained previews for an in-universe film staring Blasto that is one huge ''Film/DirtyHarry''/{{Blaxploitation}} parody. The third game went even further, with a good ten minutes of audio from a Blasto movie available for players to listen to.[[/labelnote]]
