  • Ascended Fanon: The 5th Edition halfling army wasn't written by Games Workshop, but was submitted by fans to Citadel Journal #36.
  • Creator's Favorite: Of all the Chaos special characters created for the Champions of Chaos sourcebook, Scyla Anfingrimm is the only one other than Archaon to seemingly make a big impact with the game's designers. He has had the most appearances as a playable unit of any of the Chaos characters from that book, including appearing in Warhammer Armies: Chaos for 4th edition, Citadel Journal #50 for 6th edition, and Warhammer Armies: Warriors of Chaos in both its 7th edition and 8th edition iterations. The best the other characters from that book achieved was to make it into Citadel Journal #50, and three of themnote  didn't even do that!
  • Defictionalization:
    • The Liber Chaotica has been published as a Sourcebook on the Chaos Gods, their mortal, bestial and daemonic legions, and the Realm of Chaos where they dwell. How canon it is in this day and age may be disputed, however, as it hearkens back to the days where 40K and Fantasy were in the same universe.
    • When Games Workshop opened their own bar-restaurant at their HQ in Nottingham, they got a local brewery to create some of Master Dwarf Brewer Josef Bugman's famous ales such as Bugman's XXXXXX and Trollbrew to sell on tap and in bottles.
  • Dummied Out: The Skaven Warlord from the video game adaptation has unused lines stating he's the one who took Saltzpyre's eye. Many of them are taunts directed to him about it and how he intends to finish the job.
    Skarrik Spinemanglr: Come-come one-eye man-thing! Skarrik remember. Take other eye!

  • Exiled from Continuity - Malal, the Renegade God - so called for being the antagonist to all other factions of Chaos, the embodiment of Chaos' self-defeating tendencies- was dropped from continuity because no one could figure out who held the rights for him.
  • Fan Nickname:

    • The Warriors of Chaos are often known as some variation of 'Heavy-Metal Vikings'.

    • The Chaos Dwarfs are sometimes called by the shorthand nickname of 'Chorfs.'

  • Name's the Same: Games Workshop's Dark Elf King Malekith and Marvel's Dark Elf King Malekith. The subject of who came first and if the settings are connected has had a serious impact on both fanbases.
  • What Could Have Been: We almost had a Warhammer novel written by Terry Pratchett.
  • The Wiki Rule: The Lexicanum and, on Wikia, Warhammer Wiki.
