** The last stand of Ultramar is another awesome one. 100 Ultramarines pitted against [[HordeOfAlienLocusts a full Tyranid hive fleet]] in 24 hours of solid, bloody combat. When the last Ultramarine died, just as re-enforcements arrived, the ground of the Ultramarines fortress monastery was that thick with Tyranid corpses that almost the entire complex was buried. Damn, say what you will about Ward's love of the [[CreatorsPet Ultramarines]], that is {{badass}}.

** And then there's the Ork Warlord Tuska, whose Waaaaagh came to a bloody end on a Khornate Daemon world in the Eye of Terror. When a Daemon Prince crushed his Weirdboyz with a single gesture, Tuska used the last of his strength to reach up between the Daemon's legs with his [[PowerFist Power Klaw]] and [[GroinAttack made a gesture of his own]].

Khorne was so impressed by this that he resurrected the Orks and moved them to his own realm to die fighting over and over into eternity, which is a WarriorHeaven to them.

* ''{{Warhammer 40k}}'' has no lack of these, perhaps the most obvious goes collectively to the entire the Astral Knights chapter of the SpaceMarines, an otherwise unknown and unmentioned chapter. The Imperial forces fought the World Engine, a planet-sized Necron spacecraft that had annihilated 1/3 of a battlefleet without anything they did as much as breaching its shields - [[{{wavemotiongun}} laser batteries]], boarding crafts, teleport beams, you name it. The Astral Knights' Chapter Master eventually decided on trying to reach it by ramming through its shields with his battle barge, the flagship of the chapter's fleet. That finally got them close, and he and every available marine got in the drop pods, went to the surface to the ship, and for 100 hours fought against tens of thousands of Necron warriors, wrecking any control node, generator, or any possibly important piece of scenery they came across. Finally, when the space marines were whittled down to the Master himself and five other marines, they detonated thermal charges which brought down a massive tomb complex containing many of the Necron command arrays. That finally brought the World Engine's shields down, allowing the fleet to take it down with [[EarthShatteringKaboom cyclonic torpedoes]]. [[MacrossMissileMassacre Lots]] of [[EarthShatteringKaboom cyclonic torpedoes]].

** Ollanius Pius. During the climax of the HorusHeresy, Horus was triumphant in a battle against the Emperor. Just before Horus dealt the final blow, Ollanius, a random Imperial Guardsman, stepped in the way. To reiterate, Horus at the time was practically a [[PhysicalGod physical demi-god]] who was being used as a receptacle for ruinous powers of ridiculous might, while Ollanius was a [[PunyEarthlings basic human trooper]], the same as the ones who [[RedShirtArmy die in their millions]] every day defending the worlds of the Imperium. Ollanius stood ''absolutely no chance'' against a being of this power, and still had the balls to stand up to him rather than let the Emperor die. [[MoralEventHorizon Horus flayed him alive with a simple look]], [[HeroicSacrifice but it led to the Emperor re-doubling his efforts and defeating Horus]]. Sadly, Ollanius has since been [[RetCon ret-conned]] out of official lore, replaced by a nameless Adeptus Custodes. In the new Heresy novels, he's back.

** There are even PrestigeClass' for those that survive being a Giant Slayer- Dragon Slayer and ''Daemon'' Slayer. Consider that in this setting "killing" a daemon just banishes it, and it seems unfair that [[GotrekAndFelix the only Slayer]] since (the god) Grimnir who may have actually ''killed'' a Greater Daemon doesn't merit a mention on this page. He's still alive... He ends up replacing Grimnir as he is to badass to die.
