In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the Immaterium, or Warp, is a parallel dimension where the thoughts, desires, and emotions of sentient creatures are made manifest in the form of psychic entities labeled Daemons. There was a time in the distant past when the Warp was a calm and even benign place, but the galaxy's millennia-long decay into its current state of constant warfare has corrupted it into a twisted mirror that accentuates the negative - the gods of Bravery, Hope, Acceptance, and Love are also the gods of Rage, Mutation, Decay, and Hedonism. The Warp is a realm of primordial Chaos, where the laws of nature and causality do not apply, where dark thoughts congeal and evolve into diabolical gods. It is a nightmare realm that occasionally [[NegativeSpaceWedgie spills forth]] into the Materium, leaving behind madness and desolation.

* PrivetMilitaryContractors: The squads of Marauders who often fight alongside Renegade & Heretic armies are a mix of corrupted [[SpacePirate pirates]] and mercenaries who fight because they are being very well paid to do so rather than for the glory of the Dark Gods. To represent their status as more professional soldiers, the 8th Edition rules make Renegade Marauders one of the most reliable units in a Renegades & Heretics force, but they are the only infantry unit in the army that cannot be dedicated to one of the Chaos Gods.

* EvilCounterpart: While the Renegades & Heretics army are a dark mirror to the Astra Militarum as a whole, the Renegade Enforces are specifically Chaotic versions of the Commissars of the Officio Prefectus. Fanatical devotees to Chaos, it is the role of the Renegade Enforcer to keep the undisciplined and unreliable rank and file Renegades in line with lethal force, murdering multiple models to keep a squad in the fight if they fail a Morale test.

* NegativeSpaceWedgie: Warp Rifts, tears in spacetime where the Warp and realspace gel together. The Maelstrom and Screaming Vortex are two well-known rifts, but the biggest and most infamous is the Eye of Terror. Formed by the birth of Slaanesh, it covers nearly all of the original Eldar empire (an area of space roughly the diameter of a ''galactic arm''), has irredeemably corrupted every planet it touches, and the Eldar Craftworld Ulthwe is trapped in its gravity. It also serves as a home and headquarters for the Iron Warriors, Death Guard, Thousand Sons, and Word Bearers.

With the fall of Cadia and the destruction of its Necron Pylon system, a series of Warp rifts called the Cicatrix Maledictum now stretches from the Eye across the galaxy to the Hades Anomaly, dividing the Imperium in two and causing havoc throughout the galaxy.

* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: In an attempt to create more Renegade Knights, Warpsmith covens have taken to capturing and torturing lone Knights, especially Fellblades, and torturing them until they either die or turn to Chaos.

Although extremely rare due to the loyalty indoctrinations of the Throne Mechanicum, it is not unheard of for individual Knights, Lances and sometimes entire Houses, to fall under the sway of the Dark Gods. Known as Questor Traitoris, these Renegade Knights turn their awesome power against the Imperium they used to serve.

While Renegade Knights have been a part of the ''Warhammer 40’000'' setting for many years, in the same way as their Imperial counterparts they were limited to the ''Epic'' game system. It wasn’t until April 2016 and the release of the ''Imperial Knights: Renegade'' GaidenGame that the first ''Warhammer 40’000'' scale Renegade Knight was released consisting of an Imperial Knight model with specific Chaos transfers along with rules and a conversion guide in ''Magazine/WhiteDwarf''. The 8th Edition rules for the Questor Traitoris can be found in ''Index: Chaos''. Games Workshop’s Forge World department produces Chaos Knight models with rules in the ''Imperial Armour Index: Forces of Chaos'' book.

* ImpossiblyGracefulGiant: The ''Epic'' Daemon Knights of Slaanesh are far more graceful, agile and quicker than their Imperial counterparts being more akin to the Wraithknights and Titans used by the [[SpaceElves Alderai]].
