* BigBad: Thorgar is the one for Mark of Chaos. Lilaeth the dark elf sorceress is arguably the big bad of Battle March, being the one who orchestrated the plot via manipulating Gorbash for her own purposes.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: The Hordes of Chaos are Vikings, the Empire is the Holy Roman Empire with a bit of the medieval Netherlands, the Skaven elicit a bit of Nazi Germany in their experimentation, the Elves are Greek, and the Greenskins are football hooligans crossed with Scotsmen.

* MakeWayForTheNewVillains: In the intro to ''Battle March''. First a group of Khornate Warriors of Chaos attempt to slaughter some Empire troops while replacing the Imperial flag atop the archway above them with a banner of Khorne. But before they can do anything more than toss an axe into one's back, a troll busts its way through the wall, crumps the Empire troops and then proceeds to swat the Chaos warriors aside as it marches through. As their leader struggles to his feet, a vast horde of Orcs comes streaming through, some stopping to finish him and his men off before continuing the charge, while two Orcs replace the Khorne banner with their own tribal banner as one of them shouts "WAAAGH!" loudly. The message is a powerful one.



-->'''Thorgar''': The Gods favour ME and have abandoned you, foul Shaman. '''I''' was Their chosen, not you. You could have shared in the greatness that will be mine, but you have thrown it away!

* VillainousFriendship: Between Thorgar and Olaf. Which is especially interesting; because Thorgar is a favoured Champion of Chaos and exalted in the eyes of his patron - Khorne. He has strength and skill beyond both men and daemons and commands a warhost unlike any other. Olaf is a marauder, a mighty warrior, but simple canon fodder in the eyes of the capricious gods he serves. Despite this, the two clearly have immense respect and admiration for each other; evident in Olaf's considerable relief in how Thorgar has survived his trial in the realm of Chaos and how Thorgar hails him with the honorific 'berserker son of Norsca', and his general interaction with him. Which shows that Olaf is not only an honourable man, but also a supremely badass warrior that he has Thorgar's comradeship. It's also telling in that this continues on despite Thorgar becoming a ''fucking DAEMON PRINCE''.
