** Sindri Myr, with a touch of ManipulativeBastard-ness. And the way he pulls it off just adds to his [[EvilIsCool awesomeness]]. It gets better when you find out he has the [[Creator/ScottMcNeil voice]] of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Ali Al-Saachez]], a MemeticBadass.
** Eliphas the Inheritor, whether voiced by Creator/PaulDobson or Creator/SteveBlum.

** The Force Commander. However, this is mostly because of his relatively pristine features and youthful looks rather than his behavior. Cries of 'HAIRESY!' and 'Force Commander Music/VanillaIce' are often raised. This is actually somewhat brought up in-game, as it's mentioned in a loading screen that his appointment to Force Commander was contested by a number of Blood Ravens.
** Autarch Kayleth from ''Retribution''. Due to her constant mouthfuls of ''very'' condescending and at times {{hypocrit|e}}ical snark at humans, many players were tempted to say "[[ScrewYouElves Screw You, Eldar!]]". The other Eldar characters, [[ColdSniper Ronahn]] and [[BadassBaritone Veldoran]], were much more well-received.
** Two words: [[GeneralFailure Indrick]]. [[LargeHam Boreale]]. OK, get past [[NarmCharm his cheesy speech]] and admit it: the guy was a blithering idiot and he deserved to lose.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Some critics suspect this of ''Soulstorm'', as the company was on the verge of going out of business around the time they developed it.
** The heroes' descriptions were copy-pasted from DC changing just the names (Ores'ka works for the Ethereal killed on Kronus, Carron is a Dark Apostle...) and the Dark Eldar and Sisters heroes don't even have their own description.

** The Eldar campaign was also very well-received by many players, which is surprising given how the Eldar are generally a "[[BaseBreaker love or hate]]" faction in the ''Warhammer 40000'' fandom. This is likely helped by Ronahn and Veldoran, whose characterizations' don't put much emphasis on the usual Eldar qualities that annoy fans.

** Indrick Boreale's voice acting in ''Soulstorm'' was variously considered {{Narm}}, SoBadItsGood, and SoBadItsHorrible. Relic acknowledged this by canonically stating in ''Chaos Rising'' that he had lost the war for the Kaurava System and perished as a result.

** The announcer calls when you use your faction's nuke:
-->'''Eldar Announcer''': Let the power of the Eldar wipe our enemies away.
-->'''Space Marine Announcer''': Orbital batteries, fire!

** It's one for the Biel-Tan Warp Spider Exarch even moreso. At least Kayleth tries to reason with him. Rather than [[PoorCommunicationKills try to explain himself properly]] -- even the Tyranids would have the wherewithal to recognise the danger Exterminatus poses -- he just turns his warhost against you and orders your forces killed.

** A very subtle one is how most of the Ork buildings, Pile O' Gunz especially, have a lot of Ultramarine helmets and loot as decoration. Any time perusing the 40K pages should let you know how the Ultramarines are perceived by the fanbase.
