* ParentalFavoritism: After Horus, the Emperor's favorite Primarchs were (in no particular order) Sanguinius, Roboute Guilliman, Rogal Dorn, Leman Russ and Fulgrim.
** {{Deconstruction}}. The whole reason Horus was able to do so much damage to the Emperor, is because He didn't want to hurt His favourite son. It was only after seeing how far Horus was gone that He decided to blow Horus to pieces, which He did very quickly.

* ProHumanTranshuman: Equal parts trans and pro.
** Ultimately deconstructed: his transhuman nature meant that he had trouble relating to not just ordinary humans but the near-godlike Primarchs, and his focus on pro-''human'' specifically led to his attempts to support humanity manifesting as a genocidal war waged against nearly every alien race his forces encountered.

* ProHumanTranshuman: Equal parts trans He's a peerless genius and pro.
** Ultimately deconstructed:
warrior, whose many creations and accomplishments would take millions or ''billions'' of years if normal humans tried replicating them. He's also one of the mightiest psykers to ever exist, to the point where he's regarded by many as a godlike being; even the ''Chaos Gods'' and their daemonic minions, champions, and Princes feared facing his power should he get motivated to fight them directly. But he's also wholly dedicated to the protection and success of humanity, and is willing to do ''anything'' for them. It's ultimately deconstructed as his transhuman nature meant that he had trouble relating to not just ordinary humans but the near-godlike Primarchs, and his focus on pro-''human'' specifically led to his attempts to support humanity manifesting as a genocidal war waged against nearly every alien race his forces encountered.

* BewareTheQuietOnes: Among the quietest primarchs, he is also in the top 3 in number of military victories (rivaled only by Dorn and only surpassed by Horus), he broke Curze's back, unleashed holy hell on the traitors within his legion and unnerves even other primarchs.

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: The short story ''The Board Is Set'' reveals that, prior to the Battle of Terra, the Emperor still held out hope that some action of Mortarion's would swing the battle in the loyalists' favor. What exactly that would have been isn't mentioned (given Mortarion's pre-corruption hatred of psykers, it's possible he might have changed sides or rebelled upon realizing what Horus had become), but Mortarion and his legion's corruption by Nurgle just prior to the battle apparently made it impossible. Thus, Mortarion giving in to Nurgle extinguished the last hope of averting the dystopia that the Imperium will become.


* BadassBiker: Raised amongst the horse mounted tribes of Chogoris, once reunited with the Emperor Jaghatai successfully adapted his people's traditional method of warfare to Imperial technology. Fighting from the back of a prototype [[HoverBike Sojutsu Pattern Voidbike]], Jaghatai gained a fierce reputation as a mighty warrior who, during the Siege of Terra, once personally slew 40 Death Guard Marines in a single engagement.

* CripplingOverspecialization: Angron's Horus Heresy incarnation has few strengths outside of melee combat. The only buff he gives his army is a 12" Fearless aura around him, in contrast to most other Primarchs who give many more buffs to their armies.

* LargeAndInCharge: The Primarchs were quite large. Fulgrim wearing only a robe is remarked to be a head taller than his own First Captain in Terminator Armour. Even Alpharius and Omegon, the smallest of the Primarchs, were a head taller than the average Space Marine. Magnus was an absolute ''giant''. To give a sense of scale, the average Space Marine stands a little above 2.1 meters (7 feet) tall. Lion El'Jonson, unarmored, is said to be a little over three meters tall. Magnus? Stands a full 5 meters, almost two meters taller than the Lion, and three taller than a Space Marine! Later sources somewhat scale him down to about 3.7 meters. Then again, he can control his size, like the time he made himself Titan-sized to fight one such machine. And upon becoming a Daemon Prince, Magnus is represented on the tabletop as being the size of an Imperial Knight.
