* ScaryBlackMan: At least when Dark Eldar are involved. Vulkan is the tallest, largest, and one of the physically strongest of the Primarchs, not to mention his obsidian black skin and fire red eyes, and as such his figure presents him as a great and intimidating man; [[SubvertedTrope To everyone else, he's instead despite his appearance, Vulkan is at the nicest Primarch by miles]].top of the Primarchs regarding caring, niceness, and kindness]]. When the Dark Eldar are involved though, Vulkan become an unstoppable engine of destruction.

* YouKilledMyFather: Despite his adoptive father being a ruthless necromancer, Mortarion greatly cared for him and was always grateful for taking him in and raising him as his son. The Emperor's slaying of his adoptive father proved to become a grudge Mortarion long held against him and contributed to his eventual betrayal.

** Lorgar is probably the MostTriumphantExample in the series considering that he was a guy who hated fighting and wanted nothing more than have philisophical discussions with his brothers, yet was the first one to turn to Chaos and started the Heresy to begin with.

* ParentsAsPeople: He most definitely could have served as a better authority figure to the Primarchs and tried to remove some of their primitive, conflicting and disruptive ideology. But it is [[Understatement rather difficult]] to teach a crowd of superhumans that their lifelong and strongly held opinions are wrong and need to be put aside. Much less attempting to serve as a parental figure to a bunch of centuries old adults who've already had parents.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: [[invoked]] As the most mysterious and enigmatic, and yet vitally important figure, to the setting, he invites a lot of this. Was he a PhysicalGod? An emissary from the future intended to lead humanity to a golden age? A unique mutant who further obscured the truth through his incredible psychic powers and mastery of lost technology? A gestalt embodiment of every human psyker to have existed before the birth of the Chaos Gods?[[note]]That last one was canon in the earliest editions.[[/note]] :: Even after the Emperor's entombment in the Golden Throne, these questions still persist. Is he still watching over the Imperium to this day, casting his mind into the warp to defend human souls from damnation as the mainline Ecclesiarchy dogma claims? Or did he "die" centuries ago and the Golden Throne is only maintaining the appearance that he has some semblance of life? Does the Golden Throne empower him in ways he could not be while he walked among men? Or is it limiting his potential by keeping him shackled to his mortal shell instead of [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence ascending to true godhood]]? :: On a more terrestrial level, it is conversed whether or not the Emperor was truly the messianic figure he claimed to be, or was rather a deranged dictator with delusions of grandeur and desired power for its own sake. Angron, before his fall to Chaos, reflected it was probably the latter due to the fact the 'choice' the Emperor gave (join me, accept my beliefs and serve me unreservedly or DIE) wasn't much of a choice at all, and also of how the Emperor just as often ordered the deaths of those who didn't agree with him as much as he did the deaths of actual tyrants who deserved what they got.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation ** Was Horus a pawn of Chaos or a power hungry grasper looking for an excuse to betray The Emperor? ** Did Lorgar betray the Emperor because of his faith or for the power Chaos brought him? ** Did SanitySlippage cause Fulgrim's slide to villainy or did he thought he had gone too far to believe he can be good again? ** Was Perturabo an overly prideful man justified in his rebellion for having his honor slighted or is he just a mercenary trading his allegiance to whoever is currently is the most powerful but owing allegiance to no one but himself? ** Did Angron have the Butcher's Nails implanted in his legion to make them stronger or to destroy the gift The Emperor have him?
