* On the flipside of Renegade!Shepard's MisaimedFandom (who romanticize him/her as the ultimate badass), the same fans will vilify the Paragon for being overly idealistic and putting too much blind trust in others. There was even something of a meme with them saying "You should've saved the Collector's base." [[spoiler: The irony in all of this being that a Renegade who constantly chooses to ShootTheDog finds themselves with less resources and The Illusive Man stabbing them in the back.]]

** On the broader scale, a combination of this trope, MostWritersAreHuman, and AlternativeCharacterInterpretation, with a dash of FanDumb and SelectiveObliviousness, means that the Citadel Council, and sometimes the races as a whole get hit with this too. A sizable chunk of ME fan fiction portrays the Council as [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Obstructive Bureaucrats]] that arbitrarily persecute the quarians and the krogan [[note]] Generally leaving out the fact that what happened to both races was their own fault. [[/note]], and have to be taught a lesson by humanity.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: This is likely the reason why the [[GentleGiant elcor]] [[HeavyWorlder species]] is [[EnsembleDarkhorse so popular in the fandom.]] Due to the fact that their [[CreepyMonotone monotonous voices]] sound rather silly to us humans, combined with their [[ThatMakesMeFeelAngry tendency to prefix what emotion they're feeling]], [[TheComicallySerious they're pretty much an unintentional source of comedy within the fandom.]] Matters are definitely helped by most elcor being friendly to Shepard, on top of their unique lore, but its this inadvertent charisma that likely solidifies the elcor as a popular species.

* FanPreferredCouple: At the end of the trilogy, it seems that the consensus of the most popular pairings that took up the majority of fanfics are: Female!Shepard / Garrus (for the straight female players), Male!Shepard / Tali (the straight male players), Male!Shepard / Kaidan (for the gay males and YaoiFangirls) and Female!Shepard / Liara (for the lesbians players and YuriFans) (all of them are canon, thankfully for the shippers, though only one was available from the start of the series; the other three were added specifically because those characters proved unexpectedly popular in their demographics) and... [[CrackShip Saren / Nihlus]]. And yes, only one of them did not involve [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]]. [[LastMinuteHookUp Tali / Garrus]] and [[FoeYay Liara / Javik]] tend to be popular ShipMates to those who don't romance them.

* MagnificentBastard: A pure Renegade Shepard. S/he's a total {{Jerkass}} to just about everyone, and is incredibly ruthless in getting what s/he wants, and we love him/her for it. The "Renegade" ending of the first ''Mass Effect'' definitely takes the cake, [[spoiler:A full on Renegade Shep will admit to leaving the Council to die for the sole purpose of replacing them with an all human Council.]]

* ItWasHisSled: The Protheans didn't build the Mass Relays or the Citadel, it was the Reapers, who are race of space ships that mind control organics and look like robot squids, and Sovereign is a Reaper, not a Reaper ship. These twists were huge at the time, but are pretty much common knowledge amongst the fans nowadays.
