* Irony: His StartOfDarkness was the unprovoked attack on and extermination of the Laer, a scaled serpent-like race of humanoids with no legs but two pairs of arms, that was (unbeknownst back then) completely devoted to Slaanesh. After his apotheosis to a Daemon Prince, Fulgrim mutated into... a serpentine daemon without legs but with four arms devoted to Slaanesh.

Angron refused, and would have died alongside his comrades had the Emperor not taken him by force. Without their leader the gladiators lost all morale and were annihilated, and an embittered Angron only reluctantly took command of the [=XIIth=] Legion, which became his Woar Hounds. He ordered his Apothecaries to duplicate his implants and subject his legion to the same mental mutilation, and the World Eaters soon earned a reputation as an army of remorseless berserkers. Angron was criticized for his practices and came to blows with Leman Russ and the Space Wolves, but before the Emperor could take further action the Horus Heresy erupted.

It took little convincing from Horus for Angron to side with the traitors against the Emperor, and his legion, the now called World Eaters, fought in some of the bloodiest battles of the Horus Heresy, now claiming skulls for the Blood God. Angron was the first through the breach of the walls of the Imperial Palace, and the last Primarch to leave when the Siege of Terra failed. His World Eaters rampaged their way to the Eye of Terror, where they fractured into multiple psychopathic warbands. Angron is one of the few Daemon Primarchs to have launched major campaigns after the Horus Heresy, most infamously leading a horde of berserkers at the First War for Armageddon.

* TragicVillain: Despite being ThePerfectionist, he was loyal before he unknowingly took a Laer sword possessed by a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh, which led to his Legion ruin.



** However, ''Black Legion'' novel states that Abaddon met with him after Horus Heresy, so he's still present.



* TheQuisling: Perturabo overthrew his adoptive father The Tyrant and pledged himself all to willingly to The Emperor.

** And received a just as good, though shorter ShutUpHannibal lecture. See NeverMyFault.

* HumanoidAbomination: Not on the level of the Emperor, but the Horus Heresy books show unaugmented humans suffering {{Brown Note}}s upon seeing the Primarchs. It's described as sensory overload.
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** When Roboute Guilliman denounced Alpharius' tactics, he pointed to his legion's admittedly illustrious record to prove that he was right, essentially telling Alpharius that he would never be able to top that. Never mind the fact that this massive, illustrious record came, not from any kind of tactical doctrine, but rather from having a ''200 year headstart'' over Alpharius. Averted somewhat with Guilliman's point of view, he was [[PoorCommunicationKills trying]] to show Alpharius the record ''after'' the battle; while Alpharius tactics were effective during battles they resulted in mass unrest compare to Guilliman's swift recovery and integration into the Imperium.
** Angron loves to talk about how the Butcher's Nails ruined him only to use them on his own legion.
* InTheBlood: The ''Literature/HorusHeresy'' has established that each of the Primarchs represented an aspect of the Emperor's personality:

* BloodKnight: Jaghatai Khan's [[InTheBlood piece of the Emperor in him]] was his love of battle. In particular, he joined the Emperor to unite all of the stars into one empire; unlike other Primarchs, after succeeding in conquering his homeworld, he had no interest in actually ruling it.

In the wake of the Drop Site Massacres, Vulkan was captured by the Night Lords and tortured by the Night Haunter himself, who killed Vulkan multiple times in [[NoKillLikeOverkill extravagantly violent and torturous ways]] but was frustrated by his returning to life every time.
