** To a lesser extent than the Emperor are the Space Marine Dreadnoughts, and Eldar Wraithlords. On the plus side, you're now a near-immortal warrior that can crush hordes of enemies that plagued entire squads of your fellows in the palm of your hand... often literally. The downside? You have to be nearly dead (or for the Eldar, FULLY dead,) be rescued by your compatriots, and have been such a glorious badass among badasses that they plug you into a [[{{Mecha}} huge, lumbering war-machine.]] You're also hooked in there forever, or at least until the machine breaks and you die, and you tend to spend years, decades or centuries in between humongous battles in total stasis, hence fitting into this trope in multiple literal ways.

Interestingly, Chaos forces are terrified of being dreadnought-ed themselves, for the same reasons... because they don't get the luxury of being put into stasis between battles.
** Bjorn the Fell-Handed is the oldest SpaceMarine, having met and fought alongside the GodEmperor himself, and was put in a Dreadnought so he could see his Primarch's return. He's woken up every century to retell the great sagas to the assembled chapter, or when he's needed for battle (and once managed to stop the fratricidal war between the Wolves and the Inquisition-backed Grey Knights by killing their Chapter Master and ordering both sides to stand down).

** One tumblr posited having a fire extinguisher in every classroom in America. Not to prevent fires, but to prevent mass shootings. Class room doors offer great chock points and the contents of a fire extinguisher are under pressure, very cold, and harmful if inhaled. Plus the add benefit if discharging the contents into the shooter's face does not knock him out cold, well he's still got a lot of breath to catch while you're still holding onto [[ImprovisedWeapon the can dense enough to hold that good but light enough to be wielded like a club.]]
