* MasterPoisoner: The Venenum assassins. Unlike some of their more overt operatives, they work behind the scenes, poisoning high-priority targets before the battles can begin, with good training in stealth and such a devastating array of poisons they can kill ''anything'', even daemons, with the right toxin in their injector/the target's tools or meals.

* MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness: Generally soft. In the fiction, this often [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on the writer]] (see: lasgun depiction). See ''BattlefleetGothic'' for [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale an example of space combat ranges done ''right'']] (unless when counting [[HotSubOnSubAction Hot Spaceship on Spaceship Action]]). For the most part, though, RuleOfCool ''is'' physics.

** Although, in an odd case of quasi-realism, when somebody else does this in ''Literature/{{Ravenor}}'', Harlon Nayl's answer is to switch to [[MoreDakka full auto]] and shoot her to bits.

* PowerPerversionPotential: In the ''TabletopGame/DarkHeresy'' RPG, if you fail to summon a daemon properly, it will materialize in a puny size. All of [[TabletopGames /tg/'s]] {{lolicon}} Warhammer fanatics rejoice, as they can finally have their [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Loli_Daemonette Loli daemonette]].

** The Imperial Guard, the Emperor's Hammer vs. the Adeptus Astartes, the Emperor's Scalpel. The Space Marines rely on small squads of highly elite superhuman warriors with the most advanced weapons available, entrusted with the most critical assaults and strikes where the enemy is weakest and where the most damage can be done - Astartes are however very few in number, each loss is considerable and training replacements takes time so they can't afford to be wasted. The Imperial Guard relies in vast numbers of conscripted fighting men backed by a galactic empire's worth of war materials to bear the brunt of the enemy's assaults and eventually bludgeon them into submission - casualties are always obscenely high, but with near-limitless reserves of manpower, this matters little.

* ObviousRulePatch: ''Magazine/WhiteDwarf'' used to give out official rulings against interpreting the second edition rules in stupid ways. For example, your Imperial Assassin using the shape-changing drug Polymorphine is not allowed to disguise himself as a tiny Gretchin while wearing Terminator Armour and riding an armoured motorbike just because the rules don't specifically say he can't.

** With the release of 8th edition, it took almost no time for people to come up with a way around the new allies system (where all models in your army must share at least one faction keyword) by claiming that they can replace the variable faction keyword (such as <Regiment> or <Chapter>) with the same word in all your armies, thus completely negating the intended allying method. The ''Designers themselves'' had to come out with a document that largely read "no you can't do that you dingus, use common sense" to stop the shenanigans.

** The Necrons no longer believe in their gods, but this is largely in part due to 1.) 95% of the population are mindless drones and 2.) they ended up ''shattering and enslaving'' their own gods.

Added DiffLines:

** Space Marines not only managed to do this to every other race, but also somehow managed to do this to ''themselves''. See the standard space marine's armor and weapons would be considered a godsend in Warhammer Fantasy Battle, the game 40k was originally based off of, where only mounted knights and/or a combination of specialty armor can grant you anywhere near the gear they're rocking. However, with Space Marines being so popular, they became the majority, and thus a lot of players don't understand why they are depicted in fluff as being nigh invulnerable and their bolters being devastating to enemies. This had a consequence of "lowering" everything in the game down a peg in terms of perceived power; all instances of "heavy" armor became mocked as cardboard shirts, armies that would have been considered "normal" were considered swarms simply because they outnumbered marines, and even the rate of casualties were affected as well.

* LaserSight: Tau markerlights are a variation of this, and they also appear on a lot of Imperial Guard weapons.

to:

* LaserSight: Tau markerlights are a variation of this, and they also appear on a lot of Imperial Guard weapons. To be more accurate, Tau markerlights are actually laser designators which improve the accuracy of any allied units trying to shoot at them, so they work as sights for ''other'' soldiers.
