** It's even more awesome when you know the Terrans track record from the original game: They never accomplished anything positive without being hand held by the Protoss and were generally only good at making everything much worse. This is the point where the entire Terran faction finally becomes competent on the galactic stage, and a force even the almighty Zerg needs to worry about.
* The final mission of Wings of Liberty, "All In", has your plucky band of Terrans [[spoiler: and what's left of half the dominion military]] HoldTheLine for 30 minutes against a non-stop flood of Zerg [[spoiler: against the backdrop of the burned world of Char.]] All of your turtling and base building skills are put to the test. You have multiple fronts to maintain and defend against waves of fliers or endless waves of nydus worm spawned swarms. You have a panic button on a 3:30 timer that non-veteran players (or even veterans on higher difficulty) WILL use as early and often as possible just to get a breather. [[spoiler: You even get attacked by the Queen of Blades herself from time to time.]] At the climax, the device goes off, annihalating Kerrigan's army and landing the underdogs the victory. After the depressing aftermath of the final mission in Brood War, winning does feel pretty damn satisfying

** Making this even more awesome is [[spoiler: this is the only battle the Queen of Blades has ever lost. Nobody before or after has walked away from an encounter with her with anything but either a crushing defeat or CruelMercy. ]]

** The third mission of the chain, "Breakout", deserves special mention. The target is New Folsom, a prison ''planet'' no one has escaped from in years, and which is a fortress unto itself. Raynor notes it would take an army to bust it open. Tosh replies even an army wouldn't be enough, but [[OneManArmy one Specter is]]. Then he goes and proves his own boast correct.

* [[KnightInSourArmor Gabriel Tosh]] throughout the entire set of Covert missions, especially in [[spoiler: Breakout]]. He goes so far as to help you out throughout the previous two missions by exposing where all the Terrazine and minerals are, giving away a relative chunk of the map. No one else has been able to do that.

** You can actually destroying the bases with a mass of units and using the laser to destroy units and pylons to limit casualties and de-power their structures as well as supply blocking them. Successively destroying the bases is an InstantWinCondition and so very satisfying if you can pull it off.

Added DiffLines:

** If you talk to him later, he says that he got a poisoned dart in the arm, so he told the medics to ''cut off his arm'' so he could get back in the fight. Apparently, refusing to do that makes you a "pansy-ass" in his eyes.
