* For all that Mengsk looks like a GeneralFailure in the games, the novella ''Starcraft: Uprising'' showed him displaying considerable tactical genius. Among his finest moments was using a siege tank to escape General Duke's battlecruiser. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Yes, you read that right]] -- he used a [[TankGoodness siege tank]] stationed in the ''Hyperion'' cargo bay to blast a [[TheBattlestar battlecruiser]] -- InSpace! And we all thought siege tanks didn't have AntiAir.

* Kerrigan does it again at the culmination of ''Brood War''. She seemingly invokes EnemyMine by rallying Raynor, Mengsk and the Protoss against the UED - but as soon as Korhal is retaken and Mengsk is restored to power, she turns around and backstabs all parties involved when they least expect it, ensuring that Mengsk can't pose a threat to her and eliminating one of the two high-ranking Protoss leaders left after Aiur's fall. [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Next]], she blackmails Zeratul into restoring her to undisputed power over the zerg then forces him to do something she knows will make his life, in her own words, "a walking torture day by day". And when she gets cornered by three separate factions rightly pissed at her, [[KarmaHoudini she counterattacks and sends two running home to lick their wounds as well as completely wiping out the UED]]. The same UED that pretty much came, saw and systematically kicked the crap out of every single faction in the Koprulu sector in one go. And she wiped them out - not defeated, ''killed down to the last man''.

** "To Chain the Beast", the final Terran mission, has you turtle up for the majority of the mission penned in by invulnerable CombatTentacles and a semi-unkillablesuper-Ultralisk. Fortunately, the three KeystoneArmies are quite vulnerable to a few well-placed Yamato shots, after which you can disband all your defenses and send them on the ([[StarcraftII second]]) biggest turkey shoot in the galaxy.
