* A particularly horrifying theory which appears in Horus Heresy novels is that the Emperor saw the Horus Heresy as inevitable [[spoiler: [[VelvetRevolution and manipulated events so that what happened in the end was the best case scenario.]].]] Try not to imagine what this implies about both the Emperor and the Horus Heresy.

** Although canonicity can be [[DependingOnTheWriter somewhat fluid]] and subject to retcons, there is a general timeline that shows three of the current Chaos Gods coming into full being somewhere between the eighth and fifteenth millennium. This is also the time-frame when Mankind first began to prolifically expand into the stars, and saw an unprecedented boom in population numbers. Before this point, the Warp was of course Chaotic, but good gods (such as the Eldar pantheon) existed as often as evil ones. After this point it became infinitely more hellish. Although not explicitly stated, it's implied that the current state of the Warp, and indeed the very EXISTENCE of three of the four gods, is [[NiceJobBreakingItHero explicitly the fault of Mankind]] due to our high Warp presence and tumultuous minds.

* First of all, you know what we said about the Eldar being sorry about creating Slaanesh and learning their lesson? Well the Dark Eldar are the ones who '''didn't.''' They're the descendants of the Eldar whose depravity literally tore open a whole in reality, and have pretty much continued on business as usual for more than ten thousand years.

* The Imperium itself is what happens if GeorgeOrwell teams up with HPLovecraft to create the worst dystopia ever, where the super-totalitarian, heresy-crushing regime of Literature/NineteenEightyFour is what only keeps human civilization surviving against hordes of reality-warping, insanity-inducing {{Eldritch abomination}}s. Even some of the very ideologies of the Imperium are scary:

* The latest Codex adds one more tiny detail to the picture. The Dark Eldar are the ''majority'' of their race.

* The [[http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Umbra#.UK7bc4VlkgI Umbra]] may just be the most ''[[StarfishAliens alien]]'' of all the races found in the 41st millennium. It's basically a floating black sphere that can control ''shadows'' and use them as ''weapons''.

** There was once one Ork Warboss who actually ''succeeded'' in uniting the entire Orkoid race under his banner. His name has long since been lost to history, and now he's only known as "The Beast". Now, Ghazghkull is the size of an Space Marine Dreadnought and pretty intimidating enough, but from what little we know of The Beast, he would've made ol' Ghaz look like the runtiest Snotling in the galaxy. You see, The Beast, ''his Nobz were as big as Ghazghkull, and The Beast himself kicked them around for fun''! The size of a hab-block and with tusks as thick as tree trunks, The Beast led the largest known WAAAGH! ever recorded a few millennia years after the Horus Heresy and pretty much almost destroyed the Imperium. The Imperial Fists, the badass defence specialists of the Astartes, were ''completely wiped out'' trying to stop him. Stop him they did, but at truly horrific cost even for the Imperium's standards. And who knows, Ghaz might just do it all again.
