** Chaos itself is often described as having a "foul stench" reminiscent of rotten meat, or a kind of sickly-sweet smell, like over-rich sugars fermenting in a cloying way. The general effect is frequently nauseating.

* 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 and has irredeemably corrupted every planet it touches. It also serves as a home and headquarters for the Iron Warriors, Death Guard, Thousand Sons, and Word Bearers.

** The only way to effectively torture Slaaneshi cultists is to stick them in a sensory deprivation tank. One crafty Inquisitor figured this one out.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiMagic: As well as the Brass Collars of Khorne that protect the Blood God's favoured followers and pets from witches and psykers, Daemonkin characters also have access to the Brazen Rune. This burning brand is an Artefact of Slaughter that not only protects its bearer but, when its full power is released, will burn out the mind of any psyker in the vicinity.
* AttackAttackAttack: As fanatical followers of the God of Blood and Range, Khorne Daemonkin are renowned for their ceaseless assaults that drown their enemies with corpses. There are multiple pieces of background material that see the Daemonkin wiping themselves out by charging into the guns of their enemies.

[[folder:Khorne Daemonkin]]
->''"You sought to cower behind your walls, weakling? Instead, by the will of Khorne, you shall die behind them!"''
-->-- '''Reavax the Cruel, Lord of The Harvest'''

Khorne Daemonkin are fanatical devotees of the Blood God who worship Bloodthirsters, the Greater Daemons of Khorne, and their rampages are in the hopes of gaining enough favor with their patron god to summon a Bloodthirster to fight alongside them.

Their 7th Edition codex was released March 2015.

* DoesNotLikeMagic: Chaos Sorcerers are not permitted, as the Daemonkin's butchery and fervor are sufficient to get Khorne's notice.
* BloodMagic: The Daemonkin take this even further than regular Chaos forces, as the more blood that's shed in battle (even their own), the more favor they build with Khorne, which can give them boons, attract various daemons to fight alongside them, and even summon Bloodthirsters. In-game, the Daemonkin's Blood Tithe rule gives them Blood Tithe points when their units kill or are killed by enemy units. These points can then be spent to give them buffs, summon units of daemons, and even summon a Daemon Prince or a Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury.
* RagTagBunchOfMisfits: The Chaos version--the Daemonkin are a mix of cultists, Chaos Space Marines (especially Khorne Berserkers), and various Khornate daemons.

** ForTheEvulz: Many followers of Chaos have actual hopes and ambitions, but [[MotiveDecay whether they'll keep them rather than being addicted to the horrors they inflict or driven insane from the gifts of Chaos is a different story...]]

* The Chaos Androids from the first two editions of the game (as well as the early GaidenGame Space Crusade) were daemonically-possessed automatons that take the form of shining plasteel skeletons. Unfortunately they were [[{{Retcon}} removed from the game and background material]], along with the Chaos Squats who created them.

* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: The only way to truly defeat Chaos would be to destroy all the intelligent life that feeds it. [[OmnicidalManiac The Necrons]] and Tyranids would like to make that happen.



* ChaosIsEvil: Literally. While other antagonists are bad, it's hard to measure up to those brought forth by Chaos itself.

** EvilIsVisceral: Very common, especially the "mismatched arrangement".
** EvilLaugh: Chaos specializes in this, as most Traitor Marines have turned batshit insane over ten thousand years of war and slaughter and the mind-warping effects of the Immaterium. ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' has Chaos Marines randomly break down and cackle occasionally. Subverted by the [[TheStoic Iron Warriors legion]] who seldom laughs, considering such displays beneath them.

** MadeOfEvil: Warp energy is inherently corrupting, and anyone not a Space Marine or Inquisitor exposed to it on a regular basis is killed for fear of spreading corruption. Even during the Great Crusade, before the existence of the Chaos Gods was known, the Legiones Astartes had standing orders from the Emperor to subject planets with Warp-taint to Exterminatus, and the Legiones Astartes were trained to recognize and combat psykers bloated with Warp madness.
** ReligionOfEvil: Chaos Undivided, formed by Lorgar, Primarch of the Word Bearers, who was chastised by the Emperor for spending so much time building cathedrals rather than campaigning. In response, Lorgar began worshiping the Chaos Gods as a pantheon, and today his legion is known for being darkly devout. Chaos Undivided holds that worshiping all the Chaos Gods allows one to draw the strengths of all without any of the weaknesses (Khorne's all-out hatred, Slaaneesh's need for sensation, Nurgle's corrupting influence, and Tzeentch's mutations). The fact that Chaos Undivided's greatest champion is [[GeneralFailure Abbadon]] makes this claim... questionable. [[FridgeHorror Or not]], considering [[Fridge/{{Warhammer40000}} some alternate interpretations]].
