** 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.

** 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.

* {{Mondegreen}}: Many fans mishear a part of the Space Marine theme in ''Dawn of War II'' as (equally fitting) "For then we march for Terra", when it's actually "Ave - ni mach fordena"

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

* DisappointingLastLevel: ''Retribution'' for the entire series. The campaigns for the other two expansions are all about using small-unit tactics to use four squads to handily beat armies of millions. Retribution takes a chainsword to that and you're building armies and researching upgrades again. Add to this the loading times are longer, and resource aquisition rates are nerfed in multiplayer (and luck-based in the campaign), we have a contender for "The ''Soulstorm'' of [=DoW=] II"

** Whoever turns out to be the Heretic in ''Chaos Rising.'' Gruff-but-loveable Cyrus, idealistic Thaddeous, stalwart Tarkus, cranky old Avitus, your loyal command staff, 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.
