** Eldar Howling Banshees. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmR4I94qpTg Their lines]] would be pretty {{Badass}} if they didn't have such squeaky voices. Although it least it leads to some fairly funny MemeticMutation that Howling Banshees are [[CuteButPsycho cute psycho]] [[{{Yandere}} girlfriends]].

* MemeticBadass: Vance "Motherfucking" Stubbs, according to the /tg/ section of Website/FourChan.
** Inverted in one minor instance, as Vance "Motherfucking" Stubbs is also known for having [[WhatAnIdiot lost]] [[AncestralWeapon 100 Baneblades]] (He didn't really lose them, but that's how the fans like to think of it).

* MagnificentBastard:
** [[spoiler: Azariah Kyras manipulated the entire events of the first two games, namely, a major Tyranid incursion and a Chaos Crusade. No one was the wiser until ''Retribution''. Even then, he manages to retain more than half of the Chapter's loyalty and converts a great deal of them to Khornate worship.]]
* MemeAcknowledgment: One level has an ork referring to the invading army as magpies, the FanNickname for the Blood Ravens due to their large collection of non-BloodRavens wargear.

Added DiffLines:

* Governor-Militant Lukas Alexander from ''Dark Crusade'' has a small amount of fans who like him for his accomplishments and despite being not as manly as either Sturnn or Stubbs is still well-liked. Some where visibly saddened that he died either in the hands of the Blood Ravens or to the Tau in the opening cinematic of ''Soulstorm''.

** Despite being in the same game as Eliphas (and not even being that important to the plot), Araghast the Pillager also managed to win a good number of fans, mostly due to his '''awesome''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bb889frNf1E voice]].

** Kaptin Bluddflagg, the Ork SpacePirate in ''Retribution'' quickly became popular due to his similarities to Gorgutz and generally being ridiculously {{Badass}} and CrazyAwesome. Having the Ork accent crossed one of a stereotypical pirate accent also helps, along with being perhaps one of the smartest members of his species that's ever been seen.

** The [[EnemyCivilWar inter]][[CivilWarcraft -Imperium]] [[JurisdictionFriction infighting]] from ''Dark Crusade'' and ''Soulstorm''. Both Davian Thule and General Aleksander espouse respect for each other, admitting they don't want to fight and offering the other every chance to leave peacefully, which neither of them can do because they haver orders to follow. Presumably, none of the three factions wanted to fight each other that much during the Kaurava conflict either.

** Whoever turns out to be the Heretic in ''Chaos Rising.'' Gruff-but-loveable Cyrus, idealistic Thaddeous, stalwart Tarkus, cranky old Avitus, ScienceHero Martellus, nothing but a backstabber who lost sight of the Emperor's Light and fell to the depredations of Chaos. Worse, this is ''your'' fault for giving them Corrupt wargear for combat boni and taking the easy-out options.

** Eliphas the Inheritor is universally loved by the fan base for his dark charisma, to the point where his appearance in ''Chaos Rising'' is due to fan demand and nothing else.

** Eliphas the Inheritor is universally loved by the fan base for his dark charisma, to the point where his appearance in ''Chaos Rising'' is due to fan demand and nothing else. If you were to ask who the most memorable Chaos character was, chances are Eliphas wins by a landslide even if you take into account fellow darkhorse Araghast and [[MemeticMutation memetic legends]] of Carron and Bale.
