* BatmanGambit: The Emperor didn't want ''any'' of the forces he was attacking during the final scenes of ''Shopping Trip'' to actually lose outright. He just wanted them fighting each other. If it had backfired, though, it would have gotten very, very bad for the Imperium.

* UnreliableIllustrator: Most FanArt depicts the Emperasque as a Tarrasque wearing a giant version of the Emperor's iconic golden Terminator armor, but He isn't actually wearing anything in this form (at least, in the few days that follow His return). This is mostly due to RuleOfCool.

** The Emperasque severely dresses down the Chapter Master of the Blood Ravens for their suspicious actions, binding him to the Deathwatch. The Emperor knew that to waste Gabriel's talents by just killing him would be gruesome profligacy. The mission that Gabriel undertakes will be chronicled in ''Tales of the Emperasque 3''.

** [[invoked]]Several pieces of /tg/ fanon are included, including the relationship between [[VideoGame/DawnOfWar Taldeer]] and [[ColdSniper LIVII]] from ''Love Can Bloom'', their [[HalfHumanHybrid daughter]] Lofn, references to the Pretty Marines and the Blood Ravens' kleptomania, and [[spoiler:Faptau]].

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: Canonically [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Taldeer Taldeer]] is an Eldar Farseer featured on two games. Here she is daughter of Eldrad, the most important and renowned Farseer Eldar, and leader of Eldar craftworld Uthwe.

Added DiffLines:

* MalignedMixedMarriage: [=LIVII=] and Taldeer are an human and an Eldar. And they are a mixed marriage in a setting where xenophobia and prejudice are rampant and genocide became institutionalized millennia ago. Eldar seem to tolerate [=LIVII=], but Imperials would execute him on the spot for "consorting with xenos". The Emperor also accuses [=LIVII=] of having been "tainted" by his Eldar wife and makes very clear that the only reason that he has not killed him is because Taldeer owes him favors that he intends to collect.

Added DiffLines:

* AbortedArc: Corana was introduced to exploit a /tg/ joke that claims Leman Russ was mutated by Warp into Hulu from ''Anime/SpiceAndWolf''. She was supposed to be mutated!Leman and her and canon!Leman's meeting would set stage for some wacky hijinks. Later, though, Someone Else decided the idea to be stupid and Corana was turned into reborn Sister of Silence. She's promptly forgotten about after Leman leaves Cadia.


Added DiffLines:

* ByWallThatIsHoley: Corana exploits this - when a wall is falling on her head, she takes a step to be in the place where hole in it would fall. This serves to tip Leman off that she's more than meets the eye.

* BreathWeapon: The Emperor in his new body has a powerful roar that can knock over a PhysicalGod and cause small-scale apocalypse. It's probably some combination of his psyker powers and Tarrasque's native abilities.
* BrickJoke: When Emperor appears in Lords of Terra's room for the first time, he accidentally crushes the legs of Chartist Captain and Fabricator General promises to give the man rocket knees. Fast forward something like twenty chapters and the Chartist Captain nearly crashes into waiting officials, unable to control his new rocket knees.

* PoorCommunicationKills: The Emperor decides to take the fight directly to the Tyranids... forgetting that the "friendly" Imperial forces ''might'' not have heard the news that he's back, and in the body of something that is on par with a Greater Daemon in terms of power and strength, meaning that not only do they begin shooting at ''him'' once the 'Nids are gone, they then try to drop a ''nuclear warhead'' on him. They apologize sincerely once they understand their mistake.
