* AccidentalInnuendo: Traynor's comments about how much she likes Chess. "I love the feel of something solid in my hands" indeed...

* HellIsThatNoise:
** The Reaper [[DeathFromAbove SAT beam]] makes a low-pitched, metallic blaster beam sound effect.
** The noises that Reapers and the husks in general make, all fit this trope. Of special note is the noise the Reapers make when they find you while you're scanning a system. ''Dear. God.'' Oh, you haven't been paying attention to the Reaper Alert level again? They'll make sure you notice.
** It's mentioned in-game as well! Some characters will mention that the Reaper horns are tuned to a specific frequency designed to induce a fear response in organics - ''and it's implied it can ultimately cause indoctrination!''
** Listen close in Legion's level as you destroy Reaper code. Hear that? That's devilish, subdued laughter.
** Or that Goddamn Banshee screaming.
---> '''Joker:''' Mutating people to turn them into living weapons is one thing, but the yelling? Why make them yell? That's totally uncalled for.
** ''Omega'' adds the bizarre noise that the Adjutants make when hunting victims: half guttural, predatory breathing, half creepy, indoctrination-style whispering. And it only stops when they're about to attack.

* CompleteMonster: Henry Lawson is an [[ItsAllAboutMe egomaniacal]] CorruptCorporateExecutive and MadScientist obsessed with having a dynasty. To that end he creates DesignerBabies based off of his DNA. Viewing them only as tools, he controls them their entire lives, molding them to meet his expectations, such as he did with [[JerkassWoobie Miranda]]. Should any of them be subpar, [[OffingTheOffspring he kills them]]. When he appears in ''Mass Effect 3'', he's working with the Illusive Man [[spoiler:in using the refugee camp, Sanctuary, as a front for gathering test subjects to study Reaper Indoctrination. Thousands of civilians are experimented on, [[WouldHurtAChild including children]], resulting in either their deaths or their being turned into [[NightOfTheLivingMooks husks]]]]. Unlike the rest of Cerberus, who are trying to [[WellIntentionedExtremist help humanity]], Lawson is only committing atrocities to save his own life and to have future generations [[GlorySeeker idolize him]]. He's not even [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Indoctrinated]] like the rest, having found a way to overcome and control its effects. When he's cornered by Shepard, Henry uses [[spoiler:his younger daughter, Oriana,]] as a HumanShield, and, depending upon the player's actions, he can end up killing [[spoiler:either Oriana or Miranda]].

* TheyJustDidntCare: ''Mass Effect 3: Special Edition'' for the WiiU is the only ''Mass Effect'' game available for that system, and it was released around the same time as the ''Mass Effect Trilogy'' collection of all three games for PC/{{PlayStation 3}}/{{Xbox 360}}. This forces Wii U owners to use the two ''Mass Effect: Genesis'' comics instead of save imports, missing out on a lot of content. [[Creator/ElectronicArts EA]] also refused to release any more single or multiplayer DLC including Omega, Leviathan, and the various weapon packs for it. Newcomers to the franchise are advised to play the trilogy on another system instead of the Wii U.

** Two characters that get a lot of hate are the little boy on Earth and [[spoiler: the Catalyst]]. The kid's hated for poor voice acting and emotional baiting. [[spoiler: The Catalyst]] is hated because he's more or less the reason we have this [[InternetBackdraft whole argument]] about [[BaseBreaker the endings]]. Plus, [[spoiler:the Catalyst is basically a holographic version of the kid, which certainly doesn't help either of them]].

** After the mission to the Ardat-Yakshi monastery, Traynor speaks to Allers about her doing a story about it, which she isn't planning, given her big asari viewership. Allers says "do you know how fast an e-democracy can turn on its allies?" Given the backlash against BioWare after the endings, it almost sounds prophetic.

** Kai Leng is turning out to be this for a lot of people, mostly due to his ridiculously blatant CutscenePowerToTheMax[=/=]StoryDrivenInvulnerability, his character design (described by some as "Capcom game villain wannabe"), his shallow characterization, the way he fights (essentially like a powered-up Phantom), and inducing CutsceneIncompetence on everyone around him.

** Though not to the extent of Marauder Shields, Major Coats has quite a few fans for a character with such little screen-time. The debut trailer is likely a big reason for this. Having the [[HeyItsThatVoice same voice as]] [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Hawke]] probably helps.
