Removed this due to numerous inaccuracies. Where to begin...?
  • The galaxy isn't destroyed at all; it only takes heavy damage if your War Assets are very low.
  • There is far more to the ending than just "color of light".
  • None of it is a Deus ex Machina as the Crucible's and Catalyst's roles in the ending are foreshadowed. The choices are also foreshadowed.
  • There is nothing god-like about the Catalyst.
  • There is nothing "magical" about the ending, as the Crucible can be used to do things that have been foreshadowed.

An accurate-to-facts entry should be written, if it's going to be included here.

It's a valid case of Ending Aversion and shouldn't just be pulled. If it represents the ending inaccurately, then rewrite it. The article Be Bold exists for a reason.

Where did you get the idea that foreshadowing and Deus ex Machina are somehow mutually exclusive? You can have a Deus ex Machina with foreshadowing. In fact, that was very common in the original Greek theatres. Asspull is the trope that comes with no foreshadowing. So the third point really doesn't stand.

Just a brief note here, watch out for the entry for Mass Effect 3, that guy whose been vandalizing the ME pages trying to make the ending sound good is still here.

Given that we aren't allowed to add wicks to Angst Aversion, maybe we should put Downer Ending and Bittersweet Ending wicks here. I sure as hell know the big reason I still haven't finished Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is because Nia dies and everyone except Rossiu gets screwed over.

So, what is this? A supertrope? I've been trying to figure out what this is, and it just sounds like a combination of Ending Fatigue, The Chris Carter Effect and Seasonal Rot. Very confusing.
