* CrackPairing: Michael and Zara, for rather obvious reasons: One's a twenty-something male human living on 21st century Earth, the other's a century-and-a-half-old Eldar Farseer who's only a couple of inches tall. It's saying something when the ''[[AnythingThatMoves Rose of Slaanesh]]'' thinks that it's really strange that the two are a pair.
* CrazyAwesome: [[spoiler:The united 'Order' forces getting their act together in Chapter 19, and kicking serious ass.]]
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Zara finds out about [[spoiler: loli's after Michael complains about the Emperor's trolling him like a character from a Japanese porn game. Turns out even the ''Emperor's''only found out about that stuff recently.]]
** Also: ""I DO NOT WEAR PANTIES!""
* EvilIsSexy: [[spoiler:The Rose of Slaanesh.]]
* FanNickname: [[spoiler:The Emma-peror]] and [[spoiler:La Emperadora]] for [[spoiler:Emma]].
* FridgeBrilliance:
** [[spoiler:Even the Emperor of Mankind]] is made FunSize in this setting!
** [[spoiler: Why do the 40K characters occasionally spout pop culture shout outs (particularly egregious with Porthos the Grey Knight? ''Because they are assimilating modern (ancient) society''; quirks, references and all.]]
* FunetikAksent: The Orks, obviously.
* MarySue: {{Averted|Trope}}, as the only reason Michael is in this story is because of his [[spoiler:BlessedWithSuck powers of {{Weirdness Magnet}}ism providing the Warp Gate that put them there as a 'path of least resistance']]. Plus, the reason he's able to keep several {{BadassArm|y}}ies from killing each other and him? [[spoiler:Part of the SuperPowerLottery winnings was that he is able to manipulate people's perceptions. On the normal scale between humans, this means he's mildly charismatic to negate his shyness. On the mini scale, he [[strike:could convince Space Marines]] ''[[BloodKnight convinces ORKS]]'' to cease fire.]]
** Plus, the guy has taken a lot of injuries and has (almost) never been on the winning end of a serious battle. The slapstick violence between him and the minis, however, is about even and what you'd expect from a comedy.
* MemeticMutation: /tg/ and other 4chan memes are used and sometimes lampshaded by the GenreSavvy characters.
* NightmareFuel: Long after he has killed his first daemon, [[spoiler:Michael]] still choked up in fear whenever he so much as thought about them. Of course, this leads to...
* NightmareRetardant: Apparently, the sight of daemons literally vaporizing from being shot up by [[spoiler:a literal wall of Gatling guns]] works well for this.
* NoYay: During Chapter 25, the Rose of Slaanesh's...relationship with Michael becomes more and more disturbing, and it becomes exceedingly clear what kind of a relationship Michael would have [[AndIMustScream with]] [[FateWorseThanDeath her]].
* {{Shipping}}: Quite a bit of the fan following ships [[CrackPairing Michael]]/[[HugeGuyTinyGirl Zara]], [[ShrinkingViolet Meliya]]/[[ActionSurvivor Sohm]] and [[SpaceMarine Amadeus]]/[[ActionGirl Samisha]]. Guarantees this, too, since there isn't much in the way of romantic competition ([[TemptingFate yet]]) and their real problem is that their partner might die in combat, as none of them are non-combatants.
* TheWoobie:
** [[spoiler: Batel... oh poor, abused Batel. She's getting better, although only in small steps.]]
** PlayedForLaughs in the first Ordo Vermin Omake with Shas'la [[StealthPun Wu'bie]].
** Ishabeth could have easily become one, but she doesn't treat her past trauma as anything but just that - the past.
