Commander Tyler J. Shepard | Banshee
Whoever designed the Banshee is a genius. They scare the shit out of pretty much every Mass Effect player I know. Their ear-piercing shriek sets your teeth on edge, making you want to run the hell away in the other direction.
But more than that, their design screws with your idea of femininity, womanhood and motherhood. (You can argue all you want about asari being mono-gendered, but they look like feminine human women and are objectified as such.) They display full breasts, a bulging round stomach (what we associate with pregnancy) and if you look carefully, yes, they have a vulva (NSFW, not safe for brain). Initially my reaction to the latter was ‘ugh’ but the more I look at them the more I think that the Banshee’s design is a deliberate attempt to mindfuck you by displaying physical attributes we associate with women, fertility and sex on a terrifying, shrieking, teleporting, eviscerating space zombie.
Remember that monsters like the Reaper troops, or other types of zombies, are horrifying to us not because they are going to kill us but because they look like us. Undead, corrupted, torn apart and put back together, they are a twisted abomination, right in the middle of Uncanny Valley, making us feel sick in response to their appearance. Just look at the zombie types from Dead Space. And I think Mass Effect does it even better because it first presents all these different alien species to us, making us like them and accept them as people, and then makes zombies out of them which to us are just as creepy as the Husks. Never mind the Human Reaper at the end of ME2.
So yeah, anyway, Banshees. KILL THEM WITH FIRE and now you know why.

MASS EFFECT → The reportersI need to believe this isn’t the end. I need to believe that you’re going to destroy the Reapers and I’m going to film it as it happens. And when the fight is over, and my signal goes out on tightbeam, people are going to come together from all over the galaxy. They’re going to watch from their couches, and they’ll celebrate. And one day, they’ll laugh again.
