* In ''Warriors of Ultramar'' itself, the huge amount of deaths caused by the Tyranid invasion is oddly understated, while the some 140, 150 Astartes who died remain to be the focus.

Should not be confused with the DCComics superhero team of the same name. Also should not be confused with the pigment, although the Ultramarines ''do'' wear [[ColourCodedArmies ultramarine-coloured armor]]. And Games Workshop has a paint color entitled Ultramarine Blue, which is ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin you guessed it]]) ultramarine, and intended to be used to paint Ultramarines.

** Kasimir de Valtos invokes this trope a lot with allies of his. Having bribed and manipulated [[spoiler: Taryn Honan and Solana Vergen into supporting his political bid to undermine Mykola Shonai's Governorship of Pavonis, when he no longer has need of them, he doesn't hesistate to dispose of them; Vergen is tortured to death by de Valtos as a form of cathartic release from his own pain, while Honan is handed over to "enjoy" the attentions of a Dark Eldar Haemonculus.
