** The Yor Collective is Evil (25), with a hatred for all organic life driving them to exterminate other races when they can, or avoid them otherwise. They are however less inherently evil than the other evil races.

* KilledOffForReal: Due to events in the second game's storyline, the the Drath are extinct and the Korx are ''nearly'' extinct (a few remnants joined up with the Krynn or hang on as independent black market operators) as of the third game, their civilizations no longer playable. The Korath, the Torians, and the Arceans are also unplayable, but canonically the latter two still exist (there is no word on the Korath), they've just been hammered so hard by the Drengin that they're no longer galactic powers. The first proper expansion for ''III'', ''Mercenaries'' brings the two back (the Torians even with a campaign of their own).

* CharacterAlignment[[invoked]]: An actual game mechanic. There is a Karma Meter for every civilization (1 is pure evil, 99 is pure good, 50 is neutral), and picking different sides gives different benefits.

* CharacterAlignment[[invoked]]: An actual game mechanic. There is a Karma Meter for every civilization (1 is pure evil, 99 is pure good, 50 is neutral), and picking different sides gives different benefits. Note, however, that each of the below is merely a default alignment. If the player is in control, there's nothing stopping them from making the Drengin into the nicest guys in the universe or the Altarians into bloodthirsty psychopaths.



*** The above, however, are all default alignments - if a human is controlling a civ, it can take any morality, no matter what it goes for by default.

** The Terran Alliance is Neutral (50), with the humans valuing their personal benefit above all and acting in enlightened self-interest. They will make strong alliances and trade relations willingly, but only when they also gain from the protection of their allies or the profit garnered from trade.

** The Drath Legion is Good (75). Though they are inherently pretty nice guys, they are also highly passive-aggressive, and will use the [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative skills]] they've honed over the history of their civilization to indirectly harm anyone who opposes them. Generally, this means getting everyone to attack the Altarians.

** Similarly, the third game gave a redesign to the Krynn that now makes them resemble the [[Franchise/MassEffect Protheans]].

* TheAssimilator: In III the Snathi become this if you have the proper DLC to make them a major race. One of their racial abilities is a percentile chance to "salvage" any enemy vessel destroyed in combat with them. The percentile is fairly high, so you don't want to send one of your fleets up against theirs unless you are sure your fleet will win. Otherwise you may soon end up fighting large numbers of your own ships and designs.
