*** In ''Mass Effect 3'' we discover that the first Reaper harvest occurred a billion years ago. Assuming that the cycles of extinction occur every 50,000 years, then the number of harvested species - and, therefore, of Reapers in the fleet - reaches a staggering ''20,000!'' 20,000 genocidal, seemingly omnipotent machines coming out of darkness with one goal - exterminate all advanced life. If ''that'' doesn't make you shiver, what will?

* The encounter with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKgaYZZ3g5c the most polite krogan in the universe]] can be ''really'' unsetting and even creepy. It's a ''[[ProudWarriorRaceGuy krogan]]'', in a suit that doesn't look like armor, is extremely polite and even refuse your help and hope a confrontation won't be necessary. What makes it creepy beside all of that ? ''"Mr.Thax will make a series of light calls."'' and, when asked what will happend to the person who cheated Thax ''"That will depend on how sincere her apology is and who willing she is to correct her mistake."'', All of this imply that she probably won't get out of this well.

* The opening cutscene of the game is pretty horrific - the Normandy-1 being attacked by a mysterious enemy ship several times its size, being pretty much ''torn apart'' by the attacker, and then you get to control Shepard as he staggers through the ship, alarms screaming and fires & explosions everywhere, along with exterior shots of the once-proud vessel limping through space while under fire with huge burning holes and missing chunks all over, and ending with one last shot from the enemy dreadnought's cannon ''obliterating'' the ship that we had come to know & love from the first game, blowing it in half and then shattering it into a thousand pieces, leaving Shepard to plummet down to the planet below.

** Oh, and [[spoiler: the Virmire Survivor then gets to team up with Eva's body controlled by EDI, who has a history of violent behavior that the Survivor may know about. No wonder Ash was twitchy...]]

Meanwhile, Kaidan's self-control is probably the only reason Shepard didn't have to delay the ''Normandy's'' departure to fix an EDI shaped hole in the hull.]]

** [[FromBadToWorse It gets even worse]]. Consider the post-mission summary of the Reaper IFF mission. [[spoiler:Cerberus wasn't just planning Sanctuary during the second game. They used Shepard to make it possible.]]
-->Reaper IFF successfully retrieved. Loss of Cerberus team on the Reaper vessel unfortunate but unsurprising. Will use team's health records for comparisons against husks encountered on Reaper for '''possible insight into indoctrination and husk conversion process'''.

* The [[spoiler:VI on Luna instantly putting up barriers in all doorways after trashing the second processor cluster.]] Even more creepy: The binary code it sends just before it dies? It means "HELP!". ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' reveals that [[spoiler: the VI was actually a sentient Artificial Intelligence. So, you basically killed a sapient being that was just trying to defend itself once the Alliance realised it had become self-aware.]] [[TheTerminator This should sound familiar.]] What's more, in-game information you discover makes you realize that [[spoiler: Cerberus, those goons you're working for, were responsible for hacking the VI and giving it sentience]]. VideoGame/MassEffect3 reveals that [[spoiler: EDI used to be that AI. Or, you know, the quarians.]]

** [[ItOnlyWorksOnce Unfortunately the Reapers learned from this,]] and started specifically targeting nuclear missile silos prior to invasion to avoid a repeat. Even ''nuclear holocaust'' only slows them down at best.

* TwoWords: ''MSV Worthington''. [[spoiler:A drifting, abandoned ship in space housing a brain-dead man by the name of Jacob, on life support systems. Turns out the crew planned on pulling the plug - the only problem being that it did not go that well with Jacob's [[TheForce biotic]], PTSD girlfriend.]] The part where [[spoiler:upon hearing the last entry in the Captain's log, which ended in his bloodcurdling scream, Julia suddenly appears and rabidly attacks you]] made it even more disturbing. And you can search every corner of the entire ship prior to hearing the logs and find nothing, not even a trace of where Julia might be. This means that she must've been hiding very well, [[ParanoiaFuel watching your every move the moment you entered the ship]], and trying to anticipate how much of a threat you were to Jacob before madly rushing in and attempting to kill you.

** Because MostGamersAreMale, the concept of an attractive alien women having her way with people might lose some of its initial impact. But from the genderless Asari perspective, Morinth is a super-powered serial killer/rapist.
