* EvilTaintedThePlace:
** Just about anything corrupted by Chaos becomes this, often the only way to remove it is to destroy the ''planet''.
** A variation with the orks: a planet that's been invaded once will pretty much always have them, since the way they reproduce is by releasing spores on death that float around and eventually mature into even more orks (these are known as feral orks, and have a lower level of technology than the regular kind), though using fire to dispose of their corpses helps a bit.

* EatingTheEnemy:
** This is the overall strategy of the Tyranid Hive Fleets, what isn't eaten in battle will eventually be broken down and absorbed after all resistance is annihilated.
** In early editions, a bad roll for a Shokk Attack Gun (a gun that sends tiny goblins into a tunnel through hell, popping out completely insane and frenzied inside the target) meant that the pilot of the targeted dreadnought or Terminator knows how to react to the sudden apparition of a crazed snotling next to his head, voiding itself in his ear: turn his head and take a big bite, resuming the battle as if nothing had happened.

* {{BFG}}: Way, way too many to list here. No, seriously. Don't try to add specific examples, it's ended in pain before, so save time and check one of the many wikis dedicated to this, such as [[http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Main_Page#.UtIkTiiQnN4 Lexicanum]]. Let's just say that the bolter, the ''standard issue'' Space Marine gun, rapid-fires .75 caliber armour piercing rocket propelled grenades. [[Memes/{{Comics}} It fires 19mm caliber grenades. That's as large as a 10-gauge shell. And]] [[strike:[[AndThatsTerrible that's terrible]]]] it goes upwards from there, especially considering that is also the same round the standard-issue Space Marine ''pistol'' uses.
* {{BFS}}: Eight-foot-long chainsaw sword with bolt-on flamethrower, anyone?
** Eviscerator, Uge choppa. Dreadnaught close combat weapon. Titan close combat weapon.
** Special mention must go to the Dawn Blade wielded by Commander Farsight, which not only has to be mounted on a battlesuit, but can hack through tank armour. And it's got crackling energies all over it. About the only thing it lacks is a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw edge]].
** Most Daemon Weapons (and most daemons' weapons, which aren't quite the same thing). Special mention also goes to the one held by the Champion Greater Daemon of Slaanesh, which is almost as long as a tank (although the daemon in question is rather huge even by daemon standards).
** Some of the artwork floating around shows the Space Marine [[LargeAndInCharge Primarchs]] using variants on the aforementioned chainsaw swords that make the ones used by regular Marines look quite ''puny'' (especially considering that the Primarchs are generally accepted as being even bigger than your "average" eight-foot tall SuperSoldier). An excellent example can be seen here with ImperialFists Primarch Rogal Dorn, holding a [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/File:DORNBABY.jpg chainsword so wide a person could probably hide behind it]].
** Drach'nyen is probably the single biggest, baddest sword in the setting and is capable of cutting through the fabric of reality itself. It's not always a BFS, though. Drach'nyen's shape depends on what its wielder wants it to look like, it just so happens Abaddon wants it to appear as a giant sword. [[strike: Why he needs such a big sword when he doesn't even have any arms is another question altogether.]]

* BadVibrations: Justified-- if you don't feel the tremors of an approaching Titan, you deserve what you get. Somehow, Titans are still able to sneak up on people despite this in ''Titanicus''.
** The Tyranid [[http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Mawloc Mawlocs]] do this as well. Just before they pop out of the ground and EAT YOU, in best {{Tremors}} [[SandWorm style]].

** Notably inverted in the Damocles campaigns where the White Scars (who are Asian) and the Raven Guard (who are Native American) go up against the Tau, with no white space marines being present in the fluff.

** During the events of the Literature/HorusHeresy, a World Eaters Space Marine [[http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Kh%C3%A2rn known as Khârn]] racked up an enormous body count during the final siege of the Imperial Palace on Terra. He was killed during the battle, but Khorne, the Chaos God of war, blood and carnage, was so impressed by his showing that he brought Khârn back to life so he could continue to spill blood and collect skulls. It should also be mentioned that Khorne isn't particularly concerned about whose skulls Khârn collects, hence his nickname of "The Betrayer"
