*** While all of the stories are mutually exclusive, the ''Codex'' one and the ''Horus Heresy'' one get special mention for conflicting one another [[ArmedWithCanon directly]] (in ''Codex'', Vulkan's book of riddles orders the Salamanders to find an artifact called The Unbound Flame, which they search for to this day; in ''Horus Heresy'', The Unbound Flame is Vulkan's coffin, christened after he died, and has been owned by the Salamanders for nine thousand years).
*** ''The Beast Arises'' cleaned up some while adding some. Vulkan was the last active Loyalist Primarch however he has been in self imposed Exiled, he still though Dorn was still alive and had no clue about the Second Founding.

* BigGood: The Imperium has always viewed him as this. At best, though, he's a case of GoodIsNotNice; tough to be a good guy when you order whole intelligent races be [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide made extinct]]. Justified in that many alien species would gladly do the same to humanity and Mankind's former alien allies immediately turned against them during the Age of Strife

Added DiffLines:

* GreaterScopeParagon: From the perspective of the Imperium of Man. He spent centuries influencing humanity before revealing himself following the Age of Strife, but is currently stuck on the Golden Throne [[PoweredByAForsakenChild using the souls of sacrificed psykers to stay alive]], after he was mortally wounded by his rebellious son Horus.

Added DiffLines:

* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Particularly [[{{Tearjerker}} tragic]] since he fell trying to convince Horus to redeem along with being one of nicest character in CrapsackWorld like Warhammer 40,000. To make [[FromBadToWorse matters]] worse, his death caused psychic backlash that caused the much maligned [[UnstoppableRage Black Rage]] and [[TheBerserker Red Thirst]] among The Blood Angels and their sucessors.

Added DiffLines:

*AnimalMotifs: The Hydra. Fitting, considering their command structure averts DecapitatedArmy. Cut off one head, two more will take its place and the Hydra comes back stronger than ever.


Added DiffLines:

* DecapitatedArmy: Averted, as Guilliman found out the hard way. Even after striking Alpharius down, the whole legion seemed unaffected. Of course, there's accounts that Guilliman really striked Omegon or other body double, but still.


Added DiffLines:

* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty: Absolute master in this, as CombatPragmatist can attest. He does not shy from FalseFlagOperation and other dirty fighting tricks, to the point that Guilliman [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere retreated]] with a statement that he has "no interest in righteous battle against such a dishonorable foe".

* BeliefMakesYouStupid: [[InvokedTrope The Emperor believed this]], in part because he knew that all gods were ultimately tied to Chaos, and ruthlessly pushed a secular worldview on the budding Imperium in hopes that it would starve the Chaos Gods. This might have worked in the long run if anything hadn't gone to hell. Or it might have failed epically, since the Chaos Gods are empowered by emotions as well as belief, and humanity isn't the only game in town. We don't know for sure.

Or he might have created a god of atheism, though that's probably not canon. We don't know for sure.

* DoesNotLikeMagic / MagicIsEvil: In fact, the biggest opposer to the Librarian program.

to:

* DoesNotLikeMagic / MagicIsEvil: In fact, the biggest opposer to the Librarian program. It was this prejudice against all things related to the Warp that fueled his animosity against the Emperor since the Emperor was a psyker as well.



* {{Plaguemaster}}: As a Daemon Primarch of Nurgle.

to:

* {{Plaguemaster}}: As a Daemon Primarch KillSteal: The Emperor's slaying of Nurgle.Mortarion's adoptive father proved to become a grudge Mortarion long held against him and contributed to his eventual betrayal.



* {{Plaguemaster}}: As a Daemon Primarch of Nurgle.



* 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.
