** The Tyranids have OrganicTechnology, {{Slasher Smile}}s and [[ItCanThink underlying intelligence]] as standard among their ranks, and anyone who wants a taste of what [[Franchise/StarCraft the Zerg]] probably have nightmares about will enjoy them hugely.

** There's also Warboss Gorgutz 'Eadhunter, who is able to present himself as outright hilarious, but at the same time is a [[AxCrazy profoundly normal member of his species]]. Despite never canonically winning, he has been granted ContractualImmortality and has appeared in every expansion of the first game.

* HellIsThatNoise:
** Certain specific sounds if they're not on your side: Vindicare Assassin firing/[[QuadDamage using the scope]], that siren-sound heralding a Bloodthirster, railguns firing, psykers using their lightning attack, the very distinctive sound of a [[TankGoodness Baneblade]] firing...
** Random collapsing walls/barrel explosions in a [=DOWII=] skirmish match, echoing out of the FogofWar. It could signify a big Commander Unit heading your way or a vehicle.
** The Tyranid HiveMind has a few lines in ''Retribution'', and it is somewhere between this and CreepyAwesome.
** Noise Marines. Hilariously, many units now have appropriate lines responding to being under fire by said unit. Eldar units especially complain about "that blasted sound".
** In-universe, the sounds Tyranids make are anathema to Imperial Guardsmen.
-->'''Guardmen Squad:''' It's their noise I can't stand!

** 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.
