Who is the real "Big Bad" of the 40k universe?

  1. The Nids are definately the BIG BAD (caps lock required). They have killed many other galaxies, so this is hardly something new. The biggest threat as mentioned is if they fuse with da orks, and then that would just be GG. Infinite troops+hive mind+psychic gestalt+Growing from combat+recycling dead+spores when u die increasing numbers+multiple galaxies worth of nids+biotech combination+shadow in the warp=give up. Chaos can and has been contained before and both they and Necrons can be reasoned with. The Nids...not so much. They can and are attacking the entire galaxy at once. They have developed soul eating creatures and will only grow in size as time passes. They are the greatest threat to all life, whether that life can be considered alive or not.

    Yes, but the Warp is described so vaguely that there is room to see it as headcanon.

    Room that I take.

    Definitely not the biggest bad, but Dark Eldar are probably the most horrifying enemy for imperial citizens. Even though the other races have some extremely brutal and gory methods of death, the result is pretty much always death.

    DE's don't do death. They do capturing and cutting little bits of you off every day, both physically and mentally, to self-sustain. Pretty sure DE raid victims would rather have died to the other Xenos factions, or Chaos.
  4. Well, if you mean "Big Bad" in the terms of most evil, than the Dark Eldar actually win. As opposed to the very questionably "good" races (Eldar, Tau, Imperium) who do it for survival, Nuetral Races (Necrons and Tyranids) who while lacking in actual malice need to kill the others (for their homes back/perfection) and then even the "evil" races (Orks and Chaos) who do it because they were literally born to and know no other way of life, and for a plethora of reasons for chaos, they are the ones who literally do it for the evulz. All other races have redeeming factors, except them. In a universe of tragedy and sadness, these are the ones directly responsible for most of it as the last members of the old Eldar Empire. They are in a way the Biggest Bad, due to them being so very very very very very very very very extremely evil compare to even literal Daemons. At least the daemons were born that way and are constantly shaped by the wills of their gods and the warp. They cant even use their "but muh slaanesh" excuse, they have soulstones as an available option and now Ynnaed. They are thus in a way the "Big Bad" As someone else who gets it once put it"[​IMG]

    Necrons are the Heros saving it from chaos and tyranids.

    And humans

    And Tau

    And Eldar.... Especially the eldar...

    They keep making chaos stronger.

  7. Necrons and LSM: Lets be useful and do productive things!

    Tyranids: OMNOMNOMNOM

    Everyone else to the Eldar and Inquisition: You could be helpful you know, and maybe stop making everything worse?

    Tyranids definitely the nids mostly due to the mindless unstoppable armada dedicated to consuming the Galaxy. Though I am biased as they are the only race that could wipe out the Orks due to the whole consuming all organic matter on planets thing.

    But each side has its own Bad cause well Inquisition are a bunch of greedy gits, Necrons are zoggin metal gits, Chaos are mostly a bunch of Spikey Gits, Dark Eldar are freaky Gits (and Rokdak with them). TO be honest a better question is in an End Times Scenario who would die first... my bets on the Tau cause their pansy gits.
