* HundredPercentAdorationRating: For the most part, the citizens of the Terminus Empire support Teronus' ambitions.
* [[ActionFilmQuietDramaScene Action Roleplay Quiet Drama Scene:]] Despite being the BigBad, most of Teronus' scenes involve little action. The same could be said for Athena.
** The Council Game in its entirety counts as well.
* AdrenalineMakeover: Kyri used to be a [[NiceJewishBoy Nice Quarian Girl.]] Didn't take long to turn her into a grease monkey.
* AffectionateNickname: Lemon. Also doubles as EmbarrassingNickname. James hates it. [[spoiler: Or at least he says he does.]]
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: Strangely played straight with Kyri, a Quarian; She tends to remove her facemask around James when on the Ragtag, to earn the former Cerberus operative's trust. Possibly due to the fact that Quarians look the most similar to Humans out of all the alien races.
* AIIsACrapshoot: Averted: Artificial Intelligences, namely the Geth, have become more accepted in the galactic community since the end of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''. Played straight when you consider the Council still curtails the developments of AIs, just to a lesser extent than before.

* ALittleSomethingWeCallRockAndRoll: ''Relinquish'' opens up with James listening to ThreeDaysGrace. Averted in the sense that the band is two centuries old at this point, and even other Humans think James is weird for listening to such anachronistic music.

** WorldWarTwo anyone?



** Varian in particular.



* BenevolentBoss: Doc commonly asked the officers under him for their opinions on battle plans, and always listend to what they had to say.
* BerserkButton:
** Varian is extremely protective of Kyri, viewing her as somewhat of an adopted daughter.
** Kyri is extremely protective of all of her friends, especially James. [[spoiler: She has a crush on him.]]
** Garz is a Krogan, so he just goes batshit crazy during most fights because that's what they do.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Kyri. While normally being the sweet one, when her fellow Quarians were being attacked she [[spoiler: blew a mercenary's head open with a Black Widow]] and ''enjoyed it''.

* EvilerThanThou: Teronus constantly muses to himself about how much better and, let's face it, eviler he is than his mooks.
* EyeScream: Grore's favourite way to kill someone is to [[spoiler: claw out the eyes.]]
* TheFaceless: Subverted with Kyri, who regularly does not wear her facemask aboard the Ragtag. However, this is about the only instance where a Quarian's face is shown.

** [[spoiler: '''Kyri:''' "Uh oh, trouble's brewing. Well I'll be back guys, try not to kill yourselves."]] Think about it...

* GrayAndGrayMorality: The protagonists include a Cerberus reboot, freelancing mercenaries, a drug dealer, a morally dubious scientist, a homocidal Krogan and ambitious politicians. The antagonizing army is full of desperate civilians. The war is definitely gray versus darker gray.

** Varian follows this up by saying "Humans use tissues? Weak." {{Squick}}.

** Cerri holds a particular disdain for Turians, Varian included, due to being held hostage for days by vicious Turian thugs.

*BountyHunter: Varian is one of the best in the galaxy. Surprisingly, he actually is very polite.


Added DiffLines:

*OnlyInItForTheMoney: Kyri is in it for the thrill, Toreg is in it for his friends and Trojan is in it for the knowledge; Garz just doesn't give a fuck and wants his damn paycheck.
