** In general, Commissars are well-"loved" by fans as trigger-happy {{Bad Boss}}es serving as a perfect shorthand for the Imperial Guard's harshest aspects in some BlackComedy manner...and we can't for their [[IconicOutfit signature]] {{Commissar Cap}}s which [[TropeNamer is named after them]]!

* [[CrossesTheLineTwice I roll to Deny the Holocaust.]] [[labelnote:Explaination]]The introduction of the 6th edition of the game saw the introduction of a new rule: Deny the Witch. This allows a unit a roll to defend against enemy psychic powers, if a slim one. Such a roll is sometimes abbreviated as "Deny" or "DTW". The 5th edition rulebook for the Grey Knights included a power called "Holocaust", which targets an area around the model using it. The defending player can roll to defend against this attack, but because of the poor wording a player can, before they realize what they are saying, announce that they roll to Deny the Holocaust.[[/labelnote]]

* '''''" {{HERESY}}!"''''' ''[[BurnTheWitch *BLAM*]]'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]A response used to note extreme dislike or possible CanonDefilement. Sometimes, it is simply used to denote extreme disagreement with somebody, as a hammier alternative to the word "bullshit", or as a term to denote extreme disgust and/or inappropriateness, ala inserting Justin Bieber on an Anime thread, which is heresy. It is best used with a picture of a [[ThePoliticalOfficer Commissar]] for full effect.[[/labelnote]]

* ''TabletopGame/{{Traveller}}'': Dying during character creation (which was indeed possible in early editions of the game).

* ''TabletopGame/{{Traveller}}'': Dying during character creation (which was indeed possible creation.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Most Traveller characters are veterans of some sort of armed force or other organization in which they learned/were trained in the skills that will serve them as adventurers. As a nod to the hazards of such careers (and a hedge, along with the aging rules, against players creating characters with long service histories and very high skill levels, ranks, etc), every four-year term required a "survival roll" at the end. In early editions, failing this roll meant the character was dead; on a meta level, the player had pushed their luck too far and "crapped out", and would have to start over. Later editions of modified this rule to say that the game).character had instead suffered some career-ending mishap and left the service at the end of that term.[[/labelnote]]

* Edit: Swordsaged [[labelnote:Explanation]]Used in D&D forums. For instance: At the Giant in the Park message board, they say swordsaged instead of Ninja'd, because of how they seem to out-ninja ninjas in 3.5.[[/labelnote]]
** In game, Dex based swordsages in spite of being considered the weakest of the 3 Tome of Battle classes, have a notorious reputation for ganking opponents not correctly defending themselves. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The reason for this is manyfold. Reason One is their initiative bonus. Heavy incentive for dex, the Quick to Act class feature, along with other potential but basic minmaxing such as gear, often means they're leaving NPC's in the dust, acting first. Reason Two is the combination of Shadow Blade, insightful strikes and Assassin's stance. Shadow Blade is a feat that allows them to add dex to damage when in a shadow hand stance and using shadow hand weapons. Said stance is often the assassin's stance, adding +2d6 sneak attack. Insightful strikes adds wisdom to damage when using maneuvers from a selected school. Thirdly is incidentally, the maneuvers. They let them do things like pop off 10d6 damage in a standard attack, do short ranged teleports as move actions, turn invisible for their turn as a swift action, or even move freely during a charge - giving them an array of heavy hitting options while avoid the riposte.[[/labelnote]] Long story short: Massive initiative checks, stealth, damage bonuses and class features make them crazy-quick at getting the drop on foes - Usually in the first or surprise rounds.

* I know a great combo: Humility and Opalescence. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Humility is an enchantment that turns all creatures into 1/1s and removes their game text. While merely a bystander in this case of fail, Opalescence is an enchantment that turns all other enchantments into creatures. Get them together, and you've got Humility removing its own ability, but then there's no need to, so it doesn't, but now it has to, but now there's no need to, but now it has to... This is one combination of cards required one of the longest and most complicated rules explainations in the Oracle database, which invokes incredibly obscure and specific rules that were essentially invented just to resolve this one interaction; see [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=4881 here]].[[/labelnote]]
