*** Leman Russ' first act when he emerged from his incubator pod after getting teleported out of the Emperor's laboratory was to climb out of a volcano. Let me repeat that: ''the first thing Leman Russ did '''as a newborn child''' was to '''CLIMB. OUT. OF. A. VOLCANO.''' '' BadAss personified.

** A Striking Scorpion squad attacks the Imperial Guard lines. All of them save the Exarch are cut down by massive amounts of lasgun fire. The Exarch runs into a guardsmen squad, and massacres three guardsmen with his claw. The guardsmen hit back for the Exarch to laugh them all off. Next turn, the Exarch kills one of the guardsmen, and again survives being assaulted by the rest of the squad. The Guardsmen, now panicking, try to flee but fail to get away and the Exarch kills them all in retreat. That Exarch then runs into a heavy weapons squad and begins chopping them up as well, massacring all save the Sergeant and the Lord Commissar; the Lord Commissar, [[YouHaveFailedMe enraged by the perceived incompetence of his men, executes the Sergeant]] and challenges the Exarch alone (that in itself is pretty {{badass}} by the way). The Lord Commissar takes a mandiblaster hit to the chest, and then [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown three melee attacks with the scorpion's claw, which all hit and wound]]. The Exarch is then cut down by Imperial Guard shooting, but... ''[[OneManArmy Damn]]''...

* Perhaps the best Ork story ever: the Great Boss Tuska fought a demon, decided that the Warp would be fun, and led a WAAAAGH! first to Prosan, an Imperial hostile environment training world, for practise, and then into the Eye of Terror itself. While there, they demolished every world they came across, until they met a [[GeniusLoci sentient world]], which spawned creatures that were more than a match for the Orks. A Daemon Prince of Khorne, the Blood Prince, came up and slaughtered what was left of the warband. Tuska's Weirdboyz threw pure psychic force at it, and it killed them with a gesture. With his final breath, Tuska reached between the Blood Prince's legs with his power klaw and [[GroinAttack "made a gesture of his own".]] But that wasn't the end of Tuska, oh no. [[WarGod Khorne]] was so impressed with Tuska and his boyz' mindless battle-lust that he brought them all back to life--to be slaughtered all over again. And again. And again. Now, every dawn, the Orks are returned to life, fighting-fit, and are set against opponents they can never beat -- a waking nightmare for anyone else. [[BloodKnight The Orks]]? In essence, they'd found [[WarriorHeaven Ork Valhalla]]. To quote Tuska:

* Just Orks. They invent a man portable teleportation device, and use it to shoot snotlings (a smaller ork sub-species) inside people. They build spaceships so large they have their own gravity well, and shoot asteroids as small arms fire. They use nuclear reactors to power guns (kustom mega-blastas), armour (mega-armour) and just about everything else. In hand to hand they are the equal of a fully equiped space marine in power armour with boltgun (armour that surpasses most modern tanks, armed with a rapid fire grenade launcher) with only an axe and armour that's basically a leather jacket with bits of metal stapled to it. Also see Deffrollaz, Power Klaws and gargants. Oh, and did we mention that all of the above only works BECAUSE THE ORKS BELIEVE IT DOES?

* When the World Eaters champion Kharn and his troops were fighting against a warband of Emperor's Children on a planet where during the night the temperatures would drop to lethal levels, even for space marines, he was disgusted because his men stopped fighting in order to escape the cold. So he grabbed a flamethrower and started running around, burning all shelters and slaughtering everybody, friend or foe. He pretty much singlehandedly caused both legions to fragment and earned the name [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder "Betrayer"]].

*** The way the legion won was also a [=CMoA=]. Normally when you beat the leader and slaughter his command structure, the troops go into disarray. Guilliman lost because he was stunned that the Alpha Legion literally didn't care about the death of their primarch. He thought he'd taken out the tactical head of their legion, then he found out why their symbol is a Hydra...

After having a streak of bad luck, which culiminated with him getting caught by the Iron Warriors (who ''hate'' Imperial Fists), Lysander finally managed to demonstrate his awsome. After suffering a month of horrible [[ColdBloodedTorture torture]], he managed to break free of his restrains and escape, armorless and weaponless.

* Battle of Hades Hive. In which Commisar Sebastian Yarrick stalled the entire Ork WAAAGH! long enough to turn the tide of the war, utilising a severely outnumbered force. During said battle he lost his arm, but stayed concious long enough to kill the offending Ork Warboss, cut off ''his'' bionic arm, hold it up as a trophy, urged on his troops, and finished off that attack wave. Not until the skirmish was over did he pass out. Then Yarrick replaced his arm with that of the Warboss. Yeah, CMOA for the Old Man of Armageddon.

* One from the ''BlackCrusade'' roleplaying game's background; Ax'Senaea the Thrice-Possessed, the Executis Primaris of Laodomida and the sample Daemon Prince, mentioned on the page's entry for "TheBaroness", and arguable as a triumphant example of the BadassNormal. In short, this was a woman who so refined her [[HeroicWillpower sheer willpower]] that she was convinced by a sorcerer she could "reverse" a case of DemonicPossession, allowing her to leech off of the daemon's energy to sustain herself instead of being consumed. So she promptly did so... and, to the sorcerer's own surprise (he was expecting her to die), ''she actually succeeded''. Over the course of decades, the daemon trapped inside her soul was painfully drained of power, unable to lift a finger, until she sucked it dry and cast it back into the Warp. Then, as her name suggests, she did it twice more, and ''digested'' the next two. This is an awesome moment in itself; whilst some similar cases of symbiotic or human-controlled daemonic possessions get mentioned, it's generally accepted that possession is a FateWorseThanDeath, that leads to the inevitable destruction of the human as their mind is snuffed out and their body becomes a tool. But that's not where Ax'Senaea's awesomeness ends: the very first daemon she captured in this way? A Keeper of Secrets. That's right, the biggest, baddest daemon Slaanesh has in hir army; a monster so terrible that most people lose their souls just ''looking at it''. And it wasn't a fluke; she basically beat down and ''ate'' '''three''' {{Eldritch Abomination}}s. She was about to go for number four when Slaanesh hirself showed up and turned her into a Daemon Princess out of a combination of sheer interest in her skills, to make her stop lunching on hir greater daemons, and as a huge "f*** you" to hir greater daemons for not being able to stop her.

* Logan Grimnar. After the first war for Armageddon, when any witnesses to the armies of Chaos were shipped off-world to be worked to death, he was the only man in the entire Imperium who had the balls to stare down both the Inquisition and the High Lords of Terra, and call them on their shit, and the only one who could get away with it. Nearly anyone else would have been branded a heretic, nearly any other chapter would have been declared Excommunicate Traitoris. Not him, and not the Space Wolves. Ever since, the Inquisition has walked softly when the Great Wolf is in town. It didn't save the people of Armageddon unfortunately, but that moment of unshakable loyalty to the common men and women of the Imperium, rather then to the heartless machine known as the Administratum, was the closest thing this setting has ever gotten to a CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming.

** Actually, "call them on their shit" is just too lenient (and too weak) for choices of words about his and Wolves' deeds: That period is called as ''Months of Shame'', when Logan Grimnar and Wolves (in honour and trust to those BadassNormal who fought alongside with them during the First War for Armageddon) ''openly defied the Inquisition's orders'' to "contain" those who might be tainted by Chaos, by ''using their own vessels'' to shield those spaceships (full of survivors from the War) from being fired upon, and eventually, led to direct armed confrontation between the two parties, up to the point that the Inquisition lay siege upon Wolves' homeworld of Fernis. And despite their heavy losses, Grimnar and Wolves stand firm for their ideals. This is both a CMOA and CMOH in itself......Even more so when one considered Grimnar ''personally killed the two people responsible'' (one Inquisitor, and one '''Grey Knights Grand Master''') by making their way to their bridge outnumbered (granted at one time he chose to take the bait, but still), and walked away from it unharmed. '''BAD.''' '''ASS.'''

** Hell, even without the sheer awesome of that story, Wazdakka gets a few. For example- he once fitted a scavenged ''Battle Cannon'' to his warbike. For reference- a Battle Cannon is the primary armament of a Leman Russ ''Main Battle Tank'', and he had it bolted to his frickin' ''bike''... Quite aside from the inherent ammunition problems of bike mounted tank guns (Battle Cannon shells being almost the size of a human torso); every time it fired the recoil not only slowed or even stopped him, but sent his bike hurtling ''backwards''. Given the average speed and mass of a Speed Freek and his warbike (around 70mph is considered slow, and orks are both physically larger and proportionally more massive than humans, with bikes built in proportion), that implies the sheer scary awesome hugeness of his BFG.
* Speaking of Orks, Warlord Grizgutz was prepared to launch his WAAAGH! into the Warp, however, due to a freak Warp Storm he and his WAAGH! travel back in time before they set off. He then attacks his past self in order to have two sets of his favorite gun. The two time-displaced armies then declare war on themselves/each other, inadvertently saving millions of human lives.
* Perhaps the best Ork story ever: The Great Boss Tuska fought a demon, decided that the Warp would be fun, and lead a WAAAAGH!, first to Prosan, an Imperial hostile environment training world, for practise, and then into the Eye of Terror itself.

** 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.

* 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.
