* ForWantOfANail: If Horus hadn't been near-fatally injured on Davin, he wouldn't have been brought to the Chaos ritual that was disguised as normal healing ritual. That one ritual, during which he received Chaos visions of [[SelfFulfillingProphecy a dystopian Imperium where the Emperor is worshiped as a god and nearly all his Primarch brothers are dead]] directly lead to the Horus Heresy, which is responsible for [[CrapsackWorld the state the galaxy is in]].

* DemonicPossession: Even the ''tanks'' can get possessed. However, of the main sentient races, only humans are frequently possessed. Necrons have no souls to possess; whatever souls Tau have are too meager for demons to attach to; Tyranid hive fleets have such huge psychic signatures that anything lower than a Demon Prince would be destroyed just going near them; Orks are too stupid; the Eldar can avert it through strict discipline; and Dark Eldar torture a person a day to keep the demons away.

* ForegoneConclusion: For the story, no matter what new threat shows up and no matter how much its power is hyped it will ''never'' mean the end of the Imperium. Similarly, there sis no way any of the other factions will be permanently defeated. In real life, whenever an army gets a new codex they will definitely win the battle report in the ''Magazine/WhiteDwarf'' magazine or at least a second chance if they lose the first battle.

** This is actually a fairly rare means of admission and few chapters use it. The After ten years of training and surgical implants, there's not much point in being initiated in a way that could take you out of circulation.

** More generally, the Imperial Guard (Astra Militarum if you want to avoid a copyright) are patterned roughly off of WWII British ranks, with several additional fictitious ranks added above the typical pones to reflect the colossal size of the Imperium, and Soviet political officers appended to it, plus entirely made-up psychic ranks beside those.
