* GodzillaThreshold: Surprisingly averted. A Titan-producing Forge World falling into the hands of da Orkz sounds like a good reason to [[EarthShatteringKaboom call down an Exterminatus]], but the Imperium needs the facility just as much as the Xenos do. So Plan A is to send the Ultramarines to recapture it (mostly) intact.

Justified as a Forge World capable of producing Titans is ''exceedingly'' rare, and calling down an Exterminatus on one would ''definitely'' piss off the [[CargoCult Adeptus Mechanicus]].[[note]]That and despite MemeticMutation, Exterminatus are a last resort only done when it is 100% there is no other possible solution[[/note]]

** [[spoiler:There are several clues preceding the intervention of Chaos in the story; the noise at the end of Drogan's video message doesn't sound like an Ork's cry, nor does his wound look like one an Ork would cause. Additionally, when he warns that if the device is captured "He'll be unstoppable" it is unlikely he is referring to Grimskull, as Orks are asexual and an Ordo Xenos inquisitor would have known this, so he was almost certainly referring to someone else (likely Nemeroth or the Daemon).]]

* CriticalExistenceFailure: Low health causes the screen to redden and pulse, but you seem no less capable at fighting. {{Justified|Trope}} since the Space Marines tend to be {{Badass}} enough to resist pain and fight on until incapacitation due to extreme genetic modification and engineering, as well as years of training and conditioning.

* ItsRainingMen: Right from the game's start - Ork guns are shooting down Imperial ships and there's no way Titus' [[DropShip Thunderhawk]] could survive trying to land him... [[BadAss So Titus has his squad equip Jump Packs and flies down to the closest troublesome Ork ship and destroys it.]]

* {{Badass}}:
** Captain Titus, of course. His first response to his [[DropShip Thunderhawk]] being unable to land safely due to Ork gun batteries is to have [[ItsRainingMen his squad equip Jump Packs and descend down to the closest Ork ship.]] Soon after, Titus blows the ship up by turning one of its own guns at its bridge. He does all of this armed only with a bolt pistol and a combat knife. It's worth noting that Titus is the only Ultramarine on 1d4chan to be given near universal approval, and has been given unofficial Angry Marine status, which is pretty badass in and of itself.
** While we're at it, can't forget [[SergeantRock Sidonus]] and [[NewMeat Leandros]], simply for being able to keep up with Titus.

** [[spoiler:Inquisitor Drogan's corpse is possessed by a servant of [[BigBad Nemeroth]].]]

to:

** [[spoiler:Inquisitor Drogan's corpse is possessed by a servant of [[BigBad Nemeroth]]. Interestingly, it appears to be a corpse-habitation, instead of the daemon simply ripping Drogan's soul out. The daemon was probably counting on being found before it could finish its own plan, and a disembodied voice talking to a dead body would have been slightly more suspicious than a talking but wounded Inquisitor.]]

''Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine'' is a ThirdPersonShooter published by {{THQ}} (with the publishing rights later changing hands to {{Sega}} after THQ went out of business in 2013) and developed by the creators of the ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'', ''CompanyOfHeroes'' and ''VideoGame/{{Homeworld}}'' series, Relic Entertainment. While the aforementioned games are RealTimeStrategy games, the company has created a ThirdPersonShooter before, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Outfit_(video_game) The Outfit]], set in WorldWar2, which received mixed reviews.

* ShooOutTheClowns: When the lovably-goofy and LaughablyEvil Orks are the primary antagonists of the game, ''Space Marine'' is a rip-roaring swashbuckling boyhood-fantasy fulfilling romp where superheroic OneManArmy Tropes are taken to their ludicrous logical conclusions. When the Orks retreat and let the [[spoiler: Chaos Daemons and Marines]] take central stage, on the other hand, the game becomes a substantially darker and bleaker SavingPrivateRyan meets VideoGame/CallOfDuty style war-game.

* FlunkyBoss: Nemeroth is this. His "boss fight" is you fighting off waves of Bloodletters and Chaos Space Marines before you tackle him off the tower you're on, initiating the FreeFallFight that finally kills him.

* CanonImmigrant: Downplayed. Titus and Sidonus appeared in the tabletop game as unnamed miniatures a couple of years after the game was released, specifically the only two helmetless members of an Ultramarines Sternguard Veteran box set. Titus being a Sternguard Veteran before being promoted to Brother-Captain actually makes a great deal of sense, considering they specialize in using a variety of exotic guns.

* WeCanRuleTogether: Nemeroth tries to tempt Titus with this before their final battle. Titus, unsurprisingly, tells him where he can shove it and goes on the attack.
