* The Redeemer. A batshit crazy Priest from ''{{Necromunda}}''. Picture Batman with his head on fire, a chainsaw sword, snappy one liners and henchmen who sing a modified version of the Battle Hymn of the Republic in his honor as he kills the alien, mutant, the heretic. Yeah, it's good. "IF IT DOESN'T HURT! IT DOESN'T COUNT!"

** The Sanguinor, implied to be a reincarnation of Sanguinus' noble, idealistic spirit, got a huge one in his first recorded sighting, the Khartas incident. The Blood Angels are chasing some Ork Freebooterz onto a world when it's warp drive opens a rift, allowing Daemons of Khorne to pour through. The Daemons are led by Ka'Bandha, the same asshole Greater Daemon of Khorne who is to Bloodthristers what Bloodthristers are to Gretchin, and fought Sanguinus during the Horus Heresy. Ka'Bandha makes mincemeat of nearly all of the thirty Blood Angels who made planetfall, and the few survivors prepare to make a LastStand inside a ruined cathedral, when Sanguinor turns up (and by that, I mean he pulls an aerial DynamicEntry which knocks him out of the sky) and proceeds to utterly ''own'' the Greater Daemon, breaking his axe, impaling him through the chest on his sword, and then picking him up, flying into orbit, and body slamming him, reducing the mighty daemon to a giant blood-filled crater (which is ''still there'' to this day) and single-handedly fucks up the hordes of lesser Daemons, buying enough time for the survivors to bail.

** In the ''Valedor'' books Yriel topped this, how? By wounding the Hive Mind itself.

* The Fall of Shadowbrink is a [=CMoA=] for the Tyranids. When their invasion wakes a Daemonic portal that allows the [[TheDreaded Quadrifold Abominatum]], an alliance of a single Greater Daemon from each of the Chaos Gods, the Tyranids at first ignore them because Daemons have no biomass. They '''ignored''' the Primordial Annihilator. Only when a fortress containing millions of Daemons arises does the Hive Mind realize that it isn't dealing with prey, it's facing a fellow predator. It wastes no time in responding appropriately by sending millions of Tyranids in a suicidal attack to distract the Daemon Lords while elsewhere the Ripper swarms continue to devour Shadowbrink. This allows the Hive Mind to focus on creating more ranged bioforms, numbering in the tens of millions, before sending them against the Daemons. The combined firepower of the Tyranid horde tears apart the Great Unclean One, which in turn makes the Lord of Change flee the battle. Finally only the Bloodthirster and Keeper of Secrets remain, the two lead a charge against the Tyranid line and are met by many Tyrannofexes and Trygons, the Hive Mind having absorbed the Daemons strategies and formed a counter-strategy. The Daemonic lines falter and the Bloodthirster is dragged back into the Warp as he wrestles with three Trygons simultaenously. With the Daemons bested, the Tyranids consume Shadowbrink.

** Let's put things into perspective. Gav, a regular Ogryn Bonehead, managed through his career survive countless battles against Chaos, Orcs, Tyranids, Eldar and Necrons, but his two biggest victories were against [[spoiler: a Chaos Marine Sorcerer of The Thousand Sons and a Keeper Of Secrets, all through a serious case of unwavering faith in The Emperor, ManlyTears and RoaringRampageOfRevenge]]. And to top it all off, he was [[spoiler: spared by the freaking Inquisition and was allowed to work for one of them as a bodyguard when all seemed as if he would be executed like everyone else who had faced much lesser threats of Chaos]].

* The ork warboss known appropriately as Killaboss had not one, but TWO massive [=CMOAs=] in the most recent WhiteDwarf's apocalypse battle report. His first was taking down a [[HumongousMecha warhound scout titan]] with what was described as a "classic right haymaker against the somewhat higher chin of the titan". Killaboss then survived a DIRECT HIT from a KillSat fired at him by the warboss whose position he was trying to usurp, and was only taken down when a good deal of the combined remaining imperial forces, including [[TankGoodness super-heavy tanks]] all opened fire on him.

* One White Dwarf issue a few years back featured someone who had built a diorama of a Tau Stealth Suit ([[http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m490157a_UK_WD319_TauStealthSuits.pdf page 2 of this PDF]]) which blends in so well with the backdrop from the right angle that you can barely see it. Bear in mind that the backdrop isn't just some vague shape; it's a pretty heavily detailed Imperial-made wall, with panels, grilles and even skulls. Now ''that'' is stealth.

** Even more awesome is how this event is implied to have left an impact on the Emperor later on, considering how he listens to the long-lived but very human Malcador the Sigilite.
