* The backstory of Angron, primarch of the World Eaters, in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. He grew up in the gladiator arenas of a barbaric planet and eventually led his fellow slaves to escape to the mountains. When the Emperor arrived to give Angron command of his Space Marine legion, the primarch refused, choosing to die with his brothers-in-arms, who were facing annihilation at the hands of a massive coalition. The Emperor ignored this and teleported Angron away in time to watch his comrades get slaughtered, and though the primarch would agree to lead the World Eaters, [[HorusHeresy there were repercussions later]].

*** Its worth noting that while gladiators are taught how to fight, they are not taught how to be part of an army. Gladiator rebellions would look more like a rampaging horde then real rampaging hordes. Individually, they were likely very good fighters, but they only rarely knew how to set up a good formation or enforce discipline in the ranks, let alone apply tactics on the scale of a battle or even have an actual chain of command. 'Successful' gladiator rebellions were generally done with the intent of getting better conditions, and largely consisted of holding a rich man hostage until he agreed to grease the wheels to get them what they wanted.
