* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation‎: Much of Matt Ward's fluff is rather clearly propaganda or what citizens of Ultimar believe.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Fans were hoping that Ward wouldn't be writing Ultramarines in the next books well they're right, only problem is Robin Cruddace (writer of 6th Edition Codex) more or less ''kept'' everything Ward wrote, fan favorite Phil Kelly (who wrote the Damnos Warzone book) took the "Ultramrines are awesome" UpToEleven.

** To make matters worse, Matt Ward, the author of the most recent codex, has taken to ramming how awesome all Ultramarines are down peoples throats. This is done to the point where one small paragraph notes that Ultramarines scouts can have the same level of experience as most captains from other chapters by the time they don power armour. The second company is also described as being the "greatest fighting force in the Adeptus Astartes."

-->I always have plan.
* MarySuetopia: Ultramar is a little empire of prosperity, especially compared to the rest of the Imperium. A lot of this is due to the Ultramarines' rebuilding strategies during the great crusade. The fact that there are seven civilized worlds whose only responsibility is to support the Ultramarines[[labelnote:*]]Other Space Marine Chapters generally have only a single world supplying innitiates and supplies, and it's often a savage world or a death world. And because the planets of Ultramar are responsible for maintaining the Ultramarines, the only tithes they pay to the main body of the Imperium are gene seed tithes, which have no effect on the common population. Normal worlds, on the other hand, have to tithe some combination of food, supplies, manpower or the like, which can place a lot of stress on the population during hard times[[/labelnote]] helps a lot too.

** And even they agree he's this compare to Ward.
* {{Narm}}: In the film, the various Imperial Fists corpses arranged as increasingly elaborate wall-art. It doesn't help that their yellow armor really brings much needed color to an otherwise drab planet.

** The CGI movie. It's either SoOkayItsAverage or downright horrible.



*** By the way, good luck figuring out how much of this was ExecutiveMeddling (Matt Ward was commissioned to write an Ultramarines-only codex before the publisher told him to also make it a general Space Marines book instead) and how much is genuine fanboyism (see his feud with [=McNeill=] below).

** GrahamMcNeill actually tried to tone down some of the more overt fanboying in ''Chapter's Due''. Matt Ward then tried to retcon some of it out.

** Thankfully the 6th Edition rulebook removed this. Chapters that don't follow the Codex Astartes are no longer considered [[StopHavingFunGuys "aberrant"]], other Chapters don't look up to Guilliman as their "spiritual liege", and pretty much every other MarySue trait has been done away with.

** To the Imperium it is a MarySuetopia. To you or I it would appear more like Nazi Germany.
