The old guy who loves to complain about how things were better in his day, and that kids these days show no respect. The Grumpy Old Man is similar to a SadistTeacher, but old and not usually in direct authority over the youngsters. May possess unexpected wisdom but is likely to just complain about the young whippersnappers walking on his lawn, [[SelfDemonstratingArticle damn young'uns, no respect, don't know how good they have it.]] In my day we had to walk [[WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}} fifteen miles]] through the snow to get to school, uphill [[LogicBomb both ways]]! And we didn't complain, nosir, we were ''happy'', and we got a dime a year to work 17 hours a day in the mines, [[InflationNegation one cent an hour]], but did we complain? '''NO!''' [[WhenIWasYourAge We were]] ''[[WhenIWasYourAge satisfied]]'', [[WhenIWasYourAge dammit, because there was a]] ''[[TheGreatDepression depression]]'' [[WhenIWasYourAge going on, and we didn't dare complain when dad beat us,]] [[MiseryBuildsCharacter because it built character]] [[WhenIWasYourAge and we]] ''[[WhenIWasYourAge respected]]'' [[WhenIWasYourAge him for it, not like these days ]]

** The Emperor himself, who's had ten thousand years to watch his beloved Imperium go to shit. He tends to act like an immensely disappointed and very, very foulmouthed granddad to everyone nearby as a result.
** Khaine, the oldest god alive. He's had it rough, and as a result is ''really, really'' tired of all these "Chaos God" brats running around ruining everything. Aside from Khorne, who he has a very mild soft spot for.
