* KillEnemiesToOpen: When trapped on Typhon in the Deranged Chaos Champion's arena in ''Retribution'', the barriers around the arena will only fall once you kill the Champion, and he only emerges after you kill a sufficient number of orks, chaos forces and tyranids that continuously pour into the arena.

* AlignmentBasedEndings: ''Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising'' has multiple endings depending on the morality of your squads (which fills in for the KarmaMeter in the game) as well as several choices you make over the plot of the story. They range from [[spoiler:your Commander replacing Davian Thule as captain of the Fourth Company and helping Gabriel Angelos and Apollo Diomedes cleanse the BloodRavens of corruption]] to [[spoiler:your Commander fleeing with your squads into the Eye of Terror and joining the Black Legion as a Chaos Lord.]]

** The BloodRavens chapter of Space Marines were specifically created by Relic for exclusive use in the ''Dawn of War'' series. Since the series began, they have been acknowledged as a small part of the wider [=WH40K=] canon, being mentioned in a few novels and having their [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience color scheme]] displayed in the core rulebook.

** ''Chaos Rising'' stated that before the Warp Storms claimed planet Aurelia, it was a major commerce hub and home to a monastery to the BloodRavens. When it finally returned to real-space after millenia in the Warp, it has since turned into a wintry wasteland thanks to the ruinous powers in the Warp. And because the Warp separated it from the system's sun.

* KleptomaniacHero: The BloodRavens have a habit of recovering, or otherwise "finding" relics from other chapters, among other sources. This quality of the [[FanNickname Bloody Magpies]] is a bit exaggerated in the {{Fanon}}.

** In ''Winter Assault'', either Chaos Lord Crull or the Necrons as a whole.
** ''Dark Crusade'' had a campaign for each faction, but either Eliphas the Inheritor or the Necron Lord of Kronus could be considered.

Added DiffLines:

* AutobotsRockOut: An actual mechanic for Orks in ''Dawn of War III''. Their Waaagh! Towers come equipped with festival-scale audio amps, which a player can activate to blare out doof-style music that buffs all Ork infantry in range. "Orks iz made for rokkin!" indeed.

** Cyrus of ''II'''s campaign starts out very fragile, dealing pitiful damage and being the epitome of UselessUsefulStealth. With a good sniper rifle, various explosives and the right traits (especially the ones that improve his stealth), he becomes the single most versatile and useful character in the game. Careful and skilled players have used him to ''[[OneManArmy solo]]'' [[OneManArmy missions]], and many strategy guides declare him outright ''mandatory'' for beating the hardest difficulty.

** In ''Chaos Rising'', the Force Commander slayed [[spoiler: Ulkair]] with a Thunder Hammer, then vanished. [[spoiler: Avitus despaired at his role in the Kronus campaign and betrayed the Blood Ravens. Tarkus killed him then took a vow of penance.]] Diomedes is not killed or corrupted by Galan.

Added DiffLines:

* NoRangeLikePointBlankRange: The Imperial General and Commissars in the first game have a finishing animation where they use their sidearm and deliver a point blank headshot to humanoid enemies.


Added DiffLines:

* WolfpackBoss: Individually, the Imperial General in the original Dawn of War is the weakest Commander of all factions. However, they come as the Command ''Squad'', which you can customize to a certain extent. A Commissar is almost always included to boost Health and Morale, but after that all bets are off. Attaching multiple Psykers to the squad grants them multiple-use spells that can quickly deplete enemy heroes, weaken vehicles and terrorize entire armies. Attaching multiple Kasrkin Elites (campaign elite) turns them into LongRangeCombatant which can fire before the enemy even get close. Attaching multiple Priests and rotating the Priests' ''[[NighInvulnerability Fanaticism]]'' gives them ludicrous staying power, even when surrounded, and you can even order [[DeathFromAbove Orbital Bombardment]] on your very location and remain unscathed.
