* 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.) And until Dawn Of War III officially confirmed that Gorgutz conquered kaurava it was thought he won.

** Sindri, although he's only in campaign and is apparently KilledOffForReal, is likely the most popular Chaos character aside from Eliphas (granted, until ''Chaos Rising'', all the other Chaos characters were rather poorly received) for his [[MostWonderfulSound voice]] (to the point where the popularity of Creator/ScottMcNeil being brought back in ''Chaos Rising'') and MagnificentBastard tendencies.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelDifficultySpike: ''Winter Assault'' to ''Dawn of War''. While the game is seen as a good game and expansion pack its campaign is also a lot harder. The "Order" campaign makes you take control of both the Imperial Guard and Eldar, the latter of whom are very difficult to play properly (let alone well), while throwing waves of Orks and World Eaters at you unlike ''Dawn of War'' which introduced new units every mission. The "Disorder" campaign is slightly easier but not a cake walk either.

** Just as awesome: the Ork theme was composed by [[VideoGame/TheElderScrolls Jeremy Soule]]!

*** In terms of the ''II'' example? Just makes it all the more uplifting when [[spoiler:Davian turns out to have been interred into a Dreadnought and makes a DynamicEntry right when you need him the most. HesBack, [[Series/{{Futurama}} baby]]!]]

** Crull seems to be the least popular Chaos character for having no character traits besides being a BloodKnight (and not even a very good one, if the fact that Gorgutz murdered him is any indication). He wasn't badass enough to be cool like Eliphas or Sindri, and he wasn't incompetent enough to be funny like Carron or Bale.

*** The Necron Stronghold in ''Dark Crusade'', because you're dead if you don't have any anti-vehicle Honor Guards to deal with the early rush. In addition, the rest of the level has a set of beacons that do things like make the Necron units invisible or mind control your vehicles.

Well, unless you play as the Imperial Guard (see BreatherLevel entry.)

** In ''Dark Crusade's'' campaign, captured points and built structures stayed on the map, which made defending it a lot easier. In ''Soulstorm'', all captured points and all buildings not pre-built from the overworld map are removed, forcing you to restart almost from scratch. (Fortunately, there's a mod now which solves this problem.)

* LateCharacterSyndrome: Flash Gitz in the first game. Oh sure, they're the best shooters in your arsenal, and can probably turn the tide of a serious battle, but you only get them in ''Tier 3''. You could have whole mobs of Shoota Boyz out by then, and upgraded with Big Shootas they can do comparable levels of damage while being infinitely available for a fraction of the overall cost of ''two'' Flash Gitz squads, who cost more to train and reinforce in Requisition, Power ''and'' Population. For that manner, the Warboss and Mad Dok take their sweet time getting out as well, but it's downplayed for them because they fill niches that another unit isn't already doing better than them.

Mitigated by the fact that Flash Gitz combine the firepower of multiple Shoota squads in a few Orks each, making them much more managable (especially with the game's iffy pathfinding), and having only 14 of them around can take full advantage of a Big Mek's force field and Warboss' WAAAGH cry for defence and attack buffs, respectively, turning Flash Gitz into absolute murder machines at long range, where Orks are otherwise terrible. It also helps that their damage type and amount will rip ''anything'' but vehicles apart in seconds.

** 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 JokerImmunity and has appeared in every expansion of the first game.

Despite never canonically winning, he species]], and yet he's also very unusually intelligent for an Ork leader and also very witty. He has been granted JokerImmunity and has appeared in every expansion of the first game.game, and then was confirmed to have canonically won in ''Soulstorm'', as stated in ''VideoGame/DawnOfWarIII''.
