* MassOhCrap: Happens when Abattoir decides to show up to the meeting that was meant to posthumously divvy up his territory.
** Also the nature of the main feed regarding the last few days up to the Mass Effect 3 launch.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: For the "Nos Dwicka" plot, eldritch happenings and bizarre phenomena have been happening in the city for years, but it's never made clear if there is a logical explanation. When Mekan of Omega underwent a potential possession by a krogran demigod, "I draw the line at the Magic Krogan" became a forum catchphrase, as a summary of the uncertain nature.



* NoodleIncident: Used all the time. Examples include: Tomaz’s pilgrimage, Spiza’s indentured servitude, the invasion of Gunny’s ship by krogan, and several of Aphin’s and Jules’ benders.

to:

* NoodleIncident: The Hylagean Fog is mentioned sporadically and vaguely by both salarian and batarian intelligence operatives. Nothing about it is known except that it is deadly, biological in nature, and capable of space-faring. It's implied that the threat was dealt with by salarian STG and batarian state security, but the details are never revealed.

Added DiffLines:

* UncannyValley: In-universe, the avatar used by Ana Sari. Upon seeing it, Terrorbyte starts freaking out, and many other posters agree that it's disturbing. Something about a face that is almost-but-not-quite Asari makes them very uncomfortable.

Added DiffLines:

* AcePilot: Gatrinex, who was a Turian Hierarchy fighter jock. Most notably, he was the winner of the insane obstacle course that was the 7 Rings Race. Sadly, he died early in the Reaper War, shot down over Palaven.


Added DiffLines:

* TheAllegedCar: Turul's ship, which looks like it belongs on a trash heap. Basically a Running Gag, in that most of Turul's infrequent but crazy road trips involve characters being introduced to the ship, often while hurrying to board it.


Added DiffLines:

* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: The last sentiment of Discori, who as he dies mocks the idea that good intentions can ever change the nature of the Terminus. There will always be someone like him, no matter how often do-gooders put a temporary stop to it.


Added DiffLines:

* CannibalClan: Z-Tribe. A group of people from the Terminus sharing an account who enjoyed eating other sapient beings. They dine together as a family... often on a family, apparently.


Added DiffLines:

* FisherKingdom: Jorgal Dwick's larger than life personality and physical girth are diminished when the asari finally start reclaiming the city of "Nos Dwicka" on Illium.


Added DiffLines:

* HiddenDepths: One of the central themes with Prax ("Deadbeat"), who clearly could be so much more than the apathetic layabout he chooses to be. Notably he is surprisingly well-read and able to write poetry in multiple forms and genres.


Added DiffLines:

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Anyone who tries to do something helpful for Dani will find themselves screwed over by Dani. Most notably, Jil'Korah once brought her a new suit, only to be immediately mugged by her.

* AmoralAttorney: Xavier Platt, more or less. This includes planning the assassination of political obstacles.



* BiggusDickus: Danny from Accounting, AKA Masturbatorium Throatfuck the Man Fortress. One of the stranger Brick Jokes.

* BondageIsBad: Averted. Pleasant and respectable characters like Harrad Illum and his husband Cour, Daia T’Nara, and Jacob Angelaus all engage in it (though Angelaus’ girlfriend Nalia is a huge hypocrite, being publicly uptight and contemptuous of sexual urges).



* BoringInsult: Not that it caused him any concern, but Cerastes received one of these from Haseri of all people, in a post where Haseri compared his current behaviour to that of a predictable cartoon villain. Being a respectable hanar, Haseri delivered it in the politest way possible. Being Cerastes, Cerastes wasn't unduly provoked.

* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: The 12-day surreal comedy story arc that was "Dwickfall" AKA "The Twelve Days of Dwickmas". It comes up quite often nonetheless.



* MoreThanMindControl: Lydia’s ordeal, after she’s abducted and left to the mercies of Terna Caelnion, who aims to recondition her into being a loyal and docile slave to her former owners.



* NaiveNewcomer: The raloi, in a cultural sense.

* NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters: The Camalan Grusto, who run post-war Camala as part of the Batarian Confederacy.



* NiceJobBreakingItHero:
** For over a year, Mekan and Dano faced accusations of this regarding the Systems Alliance-Vies War, which they were “credited” with starting. This was really quite unfair, as the board eventually acknowledged.
** Similarly, and predating it, the so-called Wagstaff Affair was a huge embarrassment for the Systems Alliance and CDN.



** Mason Barnette is one of the few survivors of the once infamously wealthy colony of Bekenstein, and works for a revival.



* StoryArc: Many, including:
** Dynasty Maker: Salarian posters wind up as contestants on a controversial gameshow.
** Who Goes There?, parts one and two: The Special Tasks Group enlists the board in an attempt to stop an EldritchAbomination.
** The Systems Alliance-Vies War: Members of CDN are present for (and help instigate) the start of a small-scale war.
** The Hunt For Lydia: A respected board member is kidnapped, and the board helps track her down.
** The Reaper War (of course).



* UnusualPetsForUnusualPeople: Shadow Pjyak has, of course, a pyjak. But it’s a ridiculously fat and lazy pyjak, and she only acquired it when it was discovered already living in the apartment she shares with Branka.
