* 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.

* While we're at it, let me remind you how potentially dangerous Orks can be. Please meet Gharkul Blackfang, an ork warboss encountered during the Great Crusade. His empire was assaulted by 3 Astartes legions with primarchs present. Gharkul forces had them on the verge of defeat, badly wounding [[ImplacableMan Mortarion]] and pushing back [[MightyGlacier Rogal Dorn]] and [[TheAce Horus Lupercal]], to the point that the Emperor himself had to intervene. Emperor's flagship provided close fire support while 10 thousands Custodians and Emperor himself entered the fray breaking the tide. While that particular threat is long over, nothing really stops another such warboss from emerging. At the same time nothing 40k Imperium has, would be able even to slow such threat down.

*** A common misconception among fandom is to depict every Black Crusade as an attempt to march to Terra that was stalled at the very beginning on Cadia due to Abaddon incompetence. While in fact, most of the [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130831031104/warhammer40k/images/e/ea/BlackCrusades3.jpg Black Crusades]] slipped past Cadia and went for their objectives with little difficulty. It should be noted that most Black Crusades were not an all out assault against the Imperium, but rather quite a limited operation with a certain goal in mind. The only Black Crusade that was stalled at Cadia for some time was the 13th one. [[note]]The manner GW handles updates makes strong impression that Abaddon tries and fails to capture one little planet for 20 straight years getting beaten over and over, since the first Eye of Terror codex was published. In in-universe terms the 13th Black Crusade has just started. The timeline ends at the very start of the 13th Black Crusade and it will remain unresolved until GW decides to move the plot along. Which is most likely never.[[/note]] Almost all the Black Crusades were launched to achieve a certain, very limited goal. Be it the powerful artifact, intel, resources, slaves, tech specs, wipe of some Space Marines Chapter, ancient Death Star battlestations, Abaddon will get it, ditch the his allies and fall back to Eye of Terror with his Black Legion troops. The incoming reinforcements of Imperium crush the disorganized rabble of Chaos warbands and report about their glorious victory over the Warmaster's forces. Yet Black Legion suffers next to no losses, gains tonns of resources and manpower to build more ships and war machines, while the value (and danger for the Imperium) of the fully activated Blackstone Fortresses or the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Planetkiller]] simply cannot be measured.

* '''Emperor's Children''' Pray to the emperor that you never meet these guys. These sick bastards will rape you, your family, and then liquify you all down into combat drugs. And they will most likely stitch open your eyes and ears beforehand, so you can experience it all in mind-blistering detail. Why? 'Cos it's fun.

*** The person who made Emperor's Children such freaks? Fabius Bile. It's he who gave them these pleasure cenres. So, aside from Laeran vorruption, he effectively doomed his Legion to Chaos. But it's nothing new.
