* {{Badass}}: Let's see...
** BadassBookworm: Tactical genius.
** BadassInCharge
** BadassGrandpa: 1,100+ years and still kicking. Note that 1,100 is not how old Dante is. It is for how long he has been the Chapter Master. Given how challenging this position is you can pretty safely add another couple of centuries to get approximation of his age. In Dante's case, it's even more notable as Blood Angels often succomb to the Black Rage before reaching old age (at least for a Space Marine). Dante has, for some reason, managed to suppress it not only longer than anyone else in the chapter, but longer than most of the citizens (and warriors) of the Imperium has been alive.
** FourStarBadass: Notable in that among a council of ''other Chapter Masters'', all of them unanimously deferred to Dante as their supreme commander during the Armageddon War. This council included Logan Grimnar, the Great Wolf of the Space Wolves who generally does not take a back seat to anyone else. He made an exception for Dante.

* FragileSpeedster: Not exactly, he's still a Space Marine, but he can be insta-killed by any weapon with high enough strength. However, he is really fast - both in movement and close combat.

During the Great Crusade, the Blood Angels mirrored much of Sanguinius's nature, including his gentle spirit and appreciation of beauty. At the same time, the Blood Angels also became the Imperium's best shock troops, mirroring Sanguinius's own desire to come to grips with his foes in close quarters combat. Sanguinius became close friends with Horus, but that friendship was shattered when Horus fell to Chaos and the HorusHeresy began. At the climax of the heresy - the Siege of Terra - Sanguinius participated in the defense of the Imperial Palace, and joined the Emperor and Rogal Dorn in their journey to the ''Vengeful Spirit'', but became separated during teleportation. Finding Horus first, Sanguinius battled his brother and former friend, but having fought for several days before, was not at full strength and only managed to cause a chink in Horus' armor. Legend has it, this was perhaps the only thing that afterwards enabled the Emperor to defeat Horus. Sanguinius was subsequently killed by his brother, and the psychic shock of this manifests itself in the rest of the Blood Angels as 'The Flaw' from that day on.

Once the Chief Apothecary of the Emperor's Children, Fabius Bile fell to Chaos along with the rest of his Legion during the HorusHeresy. Cast out for not worshiping Slaanesh, Bile sold his services to the rest of the Chaos Space Marines by becoming the "Primogenitor", making clone stock for the Traitor Legions recruits. [[spoiler: Impersonating a dead biologist, Bile managed to abscond with a vial of the blood of Sanguinius, which he intends to trace back to its source--making a clone of the Emperor of Mankind.]]

* PosthumousCharacter: It's acknowledged that, in the current timeline, he is very much dead. To drive the point home, there's two sets of rules for depicting him in a game; one from just after he received the scar from the Ork, and one in his Death Company form. Obviously, you can't field both versions at the same time.

* TheDreaded: To his own Chapter and their Successors. Because he can sense who will fall to the Black Rage before the victim himself does, he often arrives just before the onset of symptoms. This has turned into a superstition that his arrival causes people to fall to the Rage, where quite the opposite is true. However, no one dares argue with him while he holds the axe.
