** In ''Caves of Ice'', upon discovering [[spoiler: a dormant Necron tomb on Simia Orichalcae, Cain wastes no time in ordering a complete Imperial evacuation from the planet. While he admits (privately of course) his primary motivation is to save his own skin, Cain does correctly point out that the Necrons in the tomb likely outnumber the Imperials hundreds to one, and if they do wake up, the Imperials will find themselves caught between the Necrons and the Orks already invading the planet, so the best thing to do in the circumstances is get off planet, alert the Inquisition to what they've found and then [[ItsTheOnlyWayToBeSure call in an Imperial Navy flotilla to obliterate the tomb from orbit]].]]

* EmergencyPresidentialAddress: Played with, as the governor's speech [[EpicFail is a complete failure]] ([[IsThisThingOn and not even rehearsed]]), demonstrating just how out-of-it the governor is (and with a name like Merkin [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush W. Pismire the Younger]], take a wild guess [[TakeThat who he's supposed to be...]]).

* RoomDisservice: The villains of ''The Little Things'', a group of kidnappers seeking to kidnap a rich young noblewoman for ransom. Unfortunately for them, the noblewoman was an undercover Inquisitor, the room service she ordered was for a dinner for her and Cain, and Cain figured out they weren't really hotel staff the moment he saw them.

* ModestyTowel: The only thing Amberley has on during ''The Little Things'', as she'd just gotten out of the shower. Except for when [[FullFrontalAssault she has to use the towel as a weapon]] when kidnappers break into her hotel room.



* TallDarkAndSnarky: Although Cain prefers to passes himself off as the TallDarkAndHansom in public, at heart he is this, as his memoirs amply demonstrate.

*** ''Duty Calls'' originally has Tyranids, but [[spoiler: a much greater threat from renegade elements of the Inquisition and the Adeptus Mechanicus presents itself]].

*** ''Duty Calls'' originally has the 597th sent to deal with a routine civil insurrection, which turns out to have been started by genestealers, followed closely behind by Tyranids, but [[spoiler: a much greater threat from renegade elements of the Inquisition and the Adeptus Mechanicus presents itself]].

* ObligatoryEarpieceTouch: "Comm-beads" apparently have the controls built into the earpiece, as Cain specifies tapping them on a regular basis. (And on one occasion, in ''Death or Glory'', he doesn't realize he left his comm-bead behind until he tries to tap it.)
