* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Planets of them. At least one of them is actually on the verge of civil war because they're running out of places to store the paperwork. This factors into allowing fan-made Imperial Guard armies: the people in charge of keeping track of the Guard in-fight and lose so much paperwork that it's easy for ''entire armies to technically not exist''. The Inquisition exploits this as much as possible to keep the rabble and average soldier from knowing too much about certain xenos or cults - if the Imperium says they don't exist, they don't exist.

** Exploited by the Space Wolves chapter of Space Marines, whose newest recruits are taken from their VikingAge-level societies convinced they're now in WarriorHeaven. They use them as land and airborne assault troops, reasoning that if they're going to rush into battle instead of using proper tactics, they may as well do so with the appropriate equipment. Once they've gotten it out of their system after a few battles, they can be trusted to hold different roles such as line troops or heavy weaponry.

* OverzeaousUnderling:
** A frequent problem when SpaceMarines (or Sororitas) and Imperial Guard are working together, as the former have a tendency to forget the Guardsmen don't have their superhuman physiology/insane devotion to sniffing out and purging heresy, preferably with fire, resulting in entirely avoidable losses because they didn't wait for the Guard to catch up.

--> If they are so eager to die, and they will not heed the advice of their superiors, then let them rush headlong into the jaws of the lion. We can only hope some of them get caught in its throat.

** The [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority commanders]] of many armies are wicked fast in combat, orders of magnitude tougher than basic infantry, and often capable of wiping out entire ''squads'' of enemy troops single-handed in melee.

** The [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority commanders]] of many armies are wicked fast in combat, orders of magnitude tougher than basic infantry, and often capable of wiping out entire ''squads'' of enemy troops single-handed in melee. Even out of combat, many of them have ready access to wargear (bikes, wings, teleporters and such) that allow them to rocket across the battlefield with incredible speed.

* OnlyGoodPeopleMayPass: The Black Library. Despite the imposing name, it is actually a catalog of all the known information regarding Chaos. The [[OurElvesAreBetter Eldar]] Harlequins that guard it are known to grant access to anyone they feel has both the need and the strength of character to be useful in the fight against Chaos. Notably, the [[GodEmperor Emperor of Mankind]] has entered.

** Played with with the Tau, who have different sexual characteristics from humans. The female dissected in ''Xenology'' is nearly indistinguishable from a male Tau as far as humans are concerned. For their part, the Tau do not seem to have much trouble determining who's what.

** RageAgainstTheMentor: Alpharius, against Roboute Guilliman, although Alpharius admitted nothing more than a pragmatic indifference to his brother's boasting. Other examples include Rogal Dorn, Primarch of the ImperialFists, masters of fortifaction and endurance and Peturabo, the Primarch of the siege expert Iron Warriors.

* MeatSackRobot: Servators are "robots" made from lobotomised criminals or vat grown clones implanted with cybernetics and used for menial labour. This is to get around rules that forbade the creation of true [=AIs=] thanks to a RobotWar in the backstory.
