* BigGood: The Imperium has always viewed him as this. At best, though, he's a case of GoodIsNotNice; tough to be called a good guy when you order whole intelligent races be [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide made extinct]], and he tends to care more about humanity as a whole (or as a concept) than any given human individual.

* BigGood: The Imperium has always viewed him as this. this, but the game use him to make this a DeconstructedTrope; while he most likely ''was'' the BigGood during the Literature/HorusHeresy, nowadays, he's basically been rendered as little more than a shriveled-up husk, only serving as little more than a symbolic figurehead, meant to keep the Imperium from fully collapsing in morale and structure, and the primary icon of religious worship by his subjects, to counter the corruptive daemonology of the Chaos gods. And even before that, he also happened to have [[WellIntentionedExtremist the biggest body count of any given human dictator in history.]] Depending on how you view it, the number has only grown, to the point that we'd save time by using scientific notation. At best, though, he's a case of GoodIsNotNice; tough to be called a good guy when you order whole intelligent races be [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide made extinct]], and he tends to care more about humanity as a whole (or as a concept) than any given human individual.

Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheSuperman: The Primarchs didn't want their Space Marine legions to be subordinated to the imperial bureaucracy. Roboute Guiliman claimed Astartes protect humanity, not rule it. Horus simply didn't like the idea of taking orders from ordinary humans. In response, the bureaucracy distrusted the legions.

* WellDoneSonGuy:
** It shows up the most clearly in the ''Literature/HorusHeresy'' series with at least half of the 18 Primarchs with Konrad Curze feeling like he's becoming evil for the Emperor and Fulgrim, when Horus tells him that the Emperor will become a god and dispose of them, responds that he has longed for the Emperor's love and respect.


Added DiffLines:

* WellDoneSonGuy: In his ''Literature/HorusHeresy'' novel, he tells Horus how much he longs for the Emperor's love and respect... something he can never attain.

* TimeAbyss: Sources indicate that the Emperor was born in 8,000 B.C., making him nearly fifty thousand years and more by the time of the game's setting.

* TimeAbyss: Sources indicate that the Emperor was born in 8,000 B.C., making him nearly fifty thousand years and more by the time of the game's setting. It shows in his actions, with Logar being a serious example. He told Lorgar to stop worshiping him ''once'' and assumed he would listen. Lorgar continued and then suddenly the Emperor attacks him and his men all because the Emperor assumed he gave Lorgar enough time. He gave him 100 years, that should have been enough. Compare him to Ollanius Pius who was born in 15,000 B.C. in the city of Nineveh and who kept his faith in the Catholic/Catheric religion and acts like a normal, albeit scared, veteran.

* StrongEmpireShriveledEmperor: He is -- or was, to be technical -- the leader of the Imperium, which controls the majority of the galaxy and commands armies and navies of staggering size, but he has spent the past ten millennia on life support while his body has decayed to a skeleton, and though he has immense psychic power, most of it is used on maintaining humanity's FTLTravel.

* BadassPreacher: During the Great Crusade, he converted whole worlds to the worship of the Emperor. During the Horus Heresy, he did the same for the gods of Chaos. He also created the rank of Chaplain among the Space Marines.

Added DiffLines:

* BigGood: Has become this for the Imperium in the aftermath of his return, as he is (so far) the only loyalist Primarch out and about. More than even his strategic and administrative skills, it is heavily implied that it is his status as a rallying figure that is keeping the Imperium afloat, which is why the forces of Chaos will stop at nothing in their attempts to kill or corrupt him.
