** The Literature/{{Space Wol|f}}ves are regarded as savage, brutish, even unworthy of being {{Space Marine}}s by their fellows -- in the 41st millennium, they are actually one of the nicer chapters.
** [[spoiler: ''Wolf King'' story reveals that though Leman Russ took his father's order to become TheDreaded and HeroKiller to heart, after destruction of Prospero and Magnus's presumed death he decided to abandon this role and change his Legion and himself lest they have no allies. It seems it worked.]]

chapters. ''Prospero Burns'' takes the former note and runs with it, with no less than [[spoiler:Russ himself detailing that they are the Emperor's executioners because that's their role in the scheme of things, but the novel also details that the Wolves are much more than their reputation suggests]].

** Horus vaults over it when he [[spoiler:uses virus bombs to destroy Isstvan III, killing off its twelve billion inhabitants and at least a third of the loyalist Astartes on the planet]]. To top it off, he [[spoiler:gathers together all the rememberencers on his ship and [[ForcedToWatch forces them to watch the planet die]] before ordering his troops to gun them all down]].

** On a more meta level, among the series' [[DependingOnTheWriter various writers]], Aaron Dembski-Bowden can be considered a source of this, as he while overall considered a good writer, his interpretation of the emperor as more or less a monster is not popular with most of the fandom and does not line up well with pretty much every other interpretation of him in the franchise, and is as such either [[FanonDiscontinuity ignored]] or considered to be from the perspective of his [[UnreliableNarrator enemies, and as such, not to be trusted]].

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: After this infamous Ultramarines codex plunged them straight into MarySue territory, their Primarch Roboute Guilliman became fans' chief [[TheScrappy Scrappy]]. The books, however, with his commentary on how Codex Astartes is not a bible, his approach to the common man and general {{badass}}ery (punching a man's head off, anyone?), combined the fact that he's the only Primarch to improve the lands he has conquered, did a lot to make him more likable in readers' eyes.
