He got lucky. Either that or because he's the Goddamn Shepard. RShepard227
The second one.
^ Funny how they made him survive the impact of giant evil debris by a fluke, only to be arbitrarily killed off right at the start of the next game... "Shepard is dead... jk he made it out alive! Only that he's dead now. But GOLD ALMIGHTY brought him back!".
^ Perfect trolling (from Bioware), I actually thought it was funny he came running & smiling as if he was taking a hike from a far away place, they should have made him injured or something Bad Dreamer

^ He/she also had a small limp
In truth, Shepard achieved acension! Becoming a being of pure energy! And in the few minutes of being a being a being of pure energy, saved the universe from the evil beings of pure energy who's power derives from being worshipped by normal beings. And then after he saved the universe by using a box created by a person whom the legend of Merlin is based off of, returned back just in time for Anderson and Officer Lang to limp out, leaving non the wiser of his extra-curricular activities!

He smacked that debris away with a combination of Falcon Punch and Kamehameha.
In seriousness... he may have taken cover by the back wall of the pit the final boss fight takes place in. Most of the debris seems like it flies in roughly horizontally, so he would be shielded from the worst of it. Well, and he's the Goddamn Shepard.
Remember, Shep is good, lucky and sometimes she cheats... Even if just a little.
- No, he/she uses save skumming to keep retrying until he/she figures out the part of the room that the debris doesn't hit. 6thLyranGuard (talk)

I always found it odd that a massive chunk took out the window/wall and the whole area didn't vent the artificial atmosphere. The pieces would have taken out the walls and ability for bulkheads to clamp down to seal so why is the council chamber still holding a stable atmosphere? Aside from that it's done to pull at your heart strings for a character you've become attached too and you're not supposed to think about how it happens... I can ignore it since you end up with such a gratifying scene where Shep ascends the debris smirking like the B.A. she truly is. (funny watching Anderson or the other human attempt to carry Wrex though) KaedAemoh (talk)
- The chamber probably had barriers to protect it in the event of a hull breach rather than bulkheads, like the Normandy did at the start of ME2. 6thLyranGuard (talk)
It's a well-established fact that Shepard is actually almost completely indestructible. Note that Shepard only REALLY dies at the end of ME3, and then only if his/her body is disintegrated by the Crucible. No huge explosion, no vacuum of space, is enough to kill him/her otherwise.
