* In the prologue mission after Shepard is consigned to the void, you can see leaking atmosphere erupting from the back of their helmet, which they quickly notice as well and try to reach. Shepard is unable to seal the breach and begins flailing, clutching at their throat... a motion which ceases as they approach the planet. Possibly simply resource-saving on the cg-animation... or Shepard asphixiated long before they hit the atmosphere

* [[{{Badass}} Shepard]] [[TheDreaded him/herself for his/her enemies.]] Seriously, [[MookHorrorShow look at it from someone else's point of view]]: By the end of ''ME 2'' Shepard has semi bulletproof skin, indestructible bones, heals at absurd rates and is strong enough to ''beat down'' a ''Geth Prime''. This means that Shepard can probably ''punch a hole'' in a shielded and armored synthetic that is arguably a walking ''tank''. And no matter what Shepard's class is, they terrify their enemies; let's take a quick look, shall we?

* Commander Shepard is practically the embodiment of this to the Reapers. You look down on the battlefield and see a single human charging at them, ''on foot''. S/he clearly has no chance, no hope of defeating you, why does s/he persist? You line up your main cannon and s/he simply dodges the beam. Why does s/he fight the inevita- What is s/he picking up? Is that a-? Within seconds, you are broken and crashing to the ground. Then you realise that you forgot the most important thing of all, the reason why Shepard has killed so many of your brethren. S/he has no ''fear''. Until the last Reaper is dead, you will be hunted across the stars. [[{{Badass}} Shepard will NEVER.]] ''[[{{Determinator}} EVER]]''. [[ImplacableMan STOP!]]

** If you had enough Charm or Intimidate points, you get to see Saren [[spoiler:blow his own head off. As in, you can watch the side of his head explode as he pulls the trigger]].

*** 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'''.

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.]]
