*** Woe is later explained to be something quite terrifying and unique, even for Dark Heresy. The entire planet is a GeniusLoci where every animal, plant, insect, bird and fish all exist on the same hive mind. Suffice to say, it deserves it's Death World classification.

* KnightTemplar: The main villains of the ''Apostasy Gambit'' trilogy, Maledictor's Hand-- i.e., the people who believe the Calixis sector is utterly corrupt and should be cleansed... and use the ''power of [[TheChessmaster Tzeentch]] [[GodOfEvil himself]]'' to bring this about. At least the Inquisitors have a relatively high smart-to-dumbass ratio. The Maledictor's Hand doesn't even have that excuse.

* ComicallyIneptHealing: Your own character can be this, if you attempt a Medicae check and roll poorly. You'll suffer an additional penalty for working on [[BizarreAlienBiology Xenos]], unless they are Orks. [[SubvertedTrope With Orks you get a bonus]], because they are so tough you can't possibly make the injury worse.... Orks, expecting a mad-doc, will only seek medical treatment when they have no other choice.

* CameBackWrong: The Sarcosan Wave Generator a.k.a Anima Chorus is a Heretek device that can bring the dead back to life. While the resurrected dead retains most of their old personality, the soul is gone so there's something off about the resurrected (though they do get superhuman strength and toughness in return). Additionally the resurrected depend on the unique energies provided by the Anima Chorus and if it gets disabled, they die again.
