* 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.

The Chaos Gods also embody positive emotions, but with the setting [[CrapsackWorld what it is]], these rarely get displayed.

* EvilTropes: There is a good reason Chaos is considered "the bad guys" in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''

** ChaosIsEvil: Though technically speaking, everyone in the franchise is evil to a degree, Chaos really takes the cake. The Chaos Gods also embody positive emotions, but with the setting [[CrapsackWorld what it is]], these rarely get displayed.
** EvilIsDeathlyCold: The presence of Warp energy usually involves the temperature dropping several degrees.
** EvilIsHammy: In a [[WorldOfHam Galaxy of Ham]], Chaos stands out for particular [[ChewingTheScenery Scene Chewing]].
--->'''Sanguinius''': Are all of your kind so in love with the sound of your own voices?
** 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.
** EvilSmellsBad:
*** 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.
*** Nurgle, his daemons, and his followers are particularly known for being foul-smelling due to the disease and rot that they breed and live in.
** EvilerThanThou: Chaos is the one faction that deliberately tries to be the evilest faction in the setting, with only the Dark Eldar rivaling 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]].

** EvilerThanThou: In-universe Chaos is considered the worst of the factions in terms of sheer depravity. Amongst the fandom, however, the Dark Eldar just ''slightly'' beat out Chaos because their evil is so wantonly malicious and sadistic.

* BrightIsNotGood: Followers of Slaanesh (Chaos god of hedonism and excess) are {{Sense Freak}}s who wear hideously garish clothing and choking perfumes at all times, being so blasé it's the only way they can feel anything. One Chaos Space Marine Legion devoted to Slaanesh wears pink and black armor for the same reason.

* MadScientist: The members of the Dark Mechanicus. Free of all the restrictions of the Adeptus Mechanicus, they innovate much more than their loyalist counterparts. However some of those restrictions include "Do not put Daemons in your tech" and "Do not make evil killer robots".
** Psycho-fanatic killer [[UnwillingRoboticisation cyberzombies]] made out of [[BodyHorror lobotomized criminals]] are [[NotSoDifferent perfectly okay for the Imperium to use]], though.
