* DracoInLeatherPants: Some of the fanbase consider her actions to be ''completely'' the fault of her genetics, which are in turn Samara's fault, and thus ''Samara's'' the monster for hunting down a serial murderer. As awful as her early life may have been, she's spent the subsequent four hundred years developing an addiction to burning out the brains of innocent victims, and there's no reason to believe she'll stop.
** In the third game (provided she survived in ''2''), she sends a series of emails to her sisters showing that she still cares about them and just wants them to be happy, although her sisters delete them without reading them.

stop, as she get's a thrill out of it.

It could also be just another example of her being a ManipulativeBitch.

* BaseBreaker: Whilst possessing her share of fans due to sympathizing with her past and CharacterDevelopment, ''many'' dislike Jack for her overly-brazen tomboyishness. Some guys like that, though...

* BaseBreaker: Quite possibly one of the biggest examples in the entire trilogy. Most fans either love Miranda or absolutely loathe her. Its hard to find a fan who has a neutral opinion of her. Some find her hot, while others find her blatant status as Fanservice (complete with many a shot of her ass) annoying. Some feel sorry for her, while others think she's whiny and arrogant. And then there are some who don't like her for her [[KnightTemplar loyalty to Cerberus.]]

* BaseBreaker: Yet another polarizing character, due to her "psychological assessments" being generic with no real insight, her apologist attitude, and her memetic status as a [[MyGirlIsNotASlut complete slut]]. On the other end of the spectrum, some people like her sweetness and her status as Cerberus' TokenGoodTeammate

* HilariousInHindsight: During Kasumi's loyalty mission, she mentions that part of the cover story she put together for Shepard was an article on him/her in ''Badass Weekly''. This reference was part of the reason the author of BadassOfTheWeek wrote [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/shepard.html an article for Shepard]] after completing the trilogy. In a way, Kasumi ''did'' get that article on Shepard written.
-->'''BadassOfTheWeek Writer''': ''[about the video clip where Kasumi mentions the article]'' Scroll ahead to 0:20 to witness what is either a cruel coincidence or the single greatest moment of my writing career.

* MemeticBadass: Zaeed has a lot of badassey facts about him, that he's slowly being considered as the metaverse's equivalent to ChuckNorris.

* TheScrappy: In the second game Jacob got hit with this for being TheGenericGuy in comparison to the more colorful squadmates and for being very opinionated (notably [[KickTheDog towards Thane]].) The third game open an entire different can of worms to players with a Female Shepard who romanced him. He ends up cheating on Shepard and was indifferent about it when confronted.

*** Despite not actually appearing in the third game, Niftu Cal being in London and performing a [[OneManArmy single Volus smackdown]] of a ''Reaper'' has become a popular signature on the BioWare forums.

* GuideDangIt: Good luck getting everyone through the suicide mission alive on your first playthrough. You're given the knowledge on how to do that throughout the game, and hints are dropped on preparations you should make, but there is still a possibility that, even if you get all the upgrades, all members are loyal, and you send them for right job in the endgame area, one of them might die at the end due to the way the game calculates each member's "defense" score during the HoldTheLine portion. Inversely, if you want more than one or two ''specific'' characters to die in order to change the next game, it requires making the "wrong" decisions very precisely. It's almost impossible to kill everyone, or as many as you can get away with while still keeping Shepard alive, if you so much as ''recruited'' Zaeed.
** [[spoiler:When the crew is kidnapped]]. It comes out of nowhere, and if you don't handle it immediately, you can get a significantly [[MultipleEndings worse ending]]. For added fun: there's a very good chance that your party won't be fully loyal at that point, which can lead to [[AnyoneCanDie even more problems...]]
** Suffice to say, if a character isn't loyal, odds are they'll die, regardless of your actions to protect them during the suicide mission. It's possible to keep non-loyal characters alive, but that generally requires a knowledge of the underlying systems governing the mission that a first-time player isn't going to have.

* ReplacementScrappy: What some people saw him as in regards for Wrex, as he is quite the FlatCharacter compared to him. Even his Loyalty mission is by far the most shallow one (a simple arena fight).
