* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The Beasts' Orkish name did not translate perfectly to Gothic, but meant, roughly, "beast", "I am slaughter", or "lord who will bring great slaughter." [[spoiler:It's ''Mag Uruk Thraka''.]]

Before Ghazghkull or the other great Warbosses who terrorized the galaxy, when the Imperium was still young, there was an Ork know only as the Beast. The greatest and mightiest of all Warbosses, he united the Ork race under his banner and led the largest Waaagh the galaxy ever saw. The Beasts' rampage tore across the Imperium and reached Terra itself, until it was ended by Imperial forces led by Vulkan.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Wholly justified for the Orks, since their very biology ensures that not only do the biggest ones tend to seize power, [[LargeAndInCharge but those in power naturally grow bigger]]. An Ork Warboss can be twice the height of a human, all of it sociopathic muscle.

An Ork Warboss can be twice the height of a human, all of it sociopathic muscle. The Beast ([[spoiler: all six of them]]) was probably the most powerful Ork in history and was such a nightmare to fight that [[spoiler: he was an even match for Vulkan in a one-on-one fight.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: It shouldn't be any surprise that the Ork who united the majority of Greenskins in the entire galaxy, built Orky tech fuelde dby a Waaaagh energy field that could flabbergast even the most adroit minds of the Adeptus Mechanicus, and nearly overrun Terra (something that even Horus Lupercal himself couldn't), is one huge face-wrecking monstrosity. The Beast was so powerful that it took [[spoiler: the Primarch Vulkan himself]] to bring down [[spoiler: just ''one'' of them.]]


Added DiffLines:

* LegacyCharacter: The Beast is [[spoiler: actually ''six'' different Warbosses, each bigger and meaner than any other Warboss in history]].

* MadeOfIron: Usually, being swallowed by a Tyranid Mawloc is an automatic death sentence, no matter how powerful a character you are. Not for Ghazukull, oh no: he not only ''survives'' the swallowing, but ''blasts his way out of the beast's stomach'' like a ChestBurster, roaring triumphantly. The sight alone inspired the ''entire planet's Orks'' to utterly crush the unstoppable Hive Fleet Leviathan, even earning the respect and allegiance of the Warboss whom Ghazkull came to crush.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Called "The Beast of Armageddon" by the Imperium, for his role in the first and second Ork invasions of Armageddon, and in parallel to [[Literature/TheBeastArises The Beast]] [[spoiler:of Ullanor]]. [[spoiler:Massively significant, as Armageddon ''was'' Ullanor.]]. Furthermore, [[spoiler:"Mag Uruk Thraka", translated as "I am Slaughter", is the true name of The Beast, marking out Ghazkull as the next one.]]

* LargeAndInCharge: Ghazghkull may be one of the biggest Orks ever seen. The [[http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/mediawiki/images/9/98/Ghazghkull_vs_Yarrick.jpg standard artwork depiction]] of him, facing off against Commissar Yarrick, shows that his human opponent is lucky to be ''waist high'' in comparison.

In fact, most sources say that he is ''6 meters tall''. For comparison the average Space Marine is 2,5m and the average soldier around 1,8m (the average Orkboy is around 2m, but they're usually hunched over).

base. [[spoiler:Ullanor was also the Orks' homeworld before the Ullanor Crusade, so there's also an element of payback.]]
