I know this may make people upset, but for the sake of having a reasonable number of choices, I consolidated several gods by grouping. (I.e. chaos gods, eldar gods, etc.)

If you want, you can go into specifics. (I.e. If you check "One of the C'tan" you may then post down below "Void Dragon for the win!")

For this exercise, the God Emperor is counted.

I myself chose Gork 'n Mork. I LOVE their mythology: (It involves them beating up other races' gods.) In my mind, an ork myth could go something like this: During their travels, Gork and Mork stumbled across the Eldar Laughing God. The Eldar Laughing God then tries to trick them into doing his bidding, but then Gork says "Eh, Shuddup!" and then Mork clobbers him so hard he is thrown to the other side of the galaxy, beyond the killing effect of Slaanesh's birth. And that is REALLY how the Laughing God survived the fall of the Eldar.

Sorry, have to go with Tzeentch. It's the only god smart enough to outsmart himself by foiling one of his own plans with another and still be able to call it a hands down success.

If it is of any comfort, I hear that in the Emperor occasionally appears in Ork myths. They know about him, having seen alters to him on various Imperial worlds and all those guardsmen who shout "For the Emperor!" before getting their heads ripped off. Ironically, they don't completely disrespect him, apparently. They see him as some sort of mighty war-god, and they can therefore relate to him. A powerful one too; it doesn't really matter that he commands a bunch of wimpy oomies. He is still tough. In fact, Emperor appears as a titanic caricature of humanity, to challenge the Ork gods to battle.

That said, the Orks also have a lot of bad stuff to say about the Emperor. They also view him as being irrational and bumbling. To them, he always seems to try to do things the hard way or wrong way. (I.e. building up an invasion force instead of going in and clobbering the enemy immediantly) So, they view him as strong but prone to overthinking.
