** Justified in the sequel, Warfield is likely used to fighting Broods under the command of Broodmothers, who only use [[HollywoodTactics limited tactics]], or even just feral zerg. The forces on Char were under the command of [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Kerrigan]], which is a whole different thing entirely. Notably, he ''[[CurbStompBattle curbstomped]]'' Zagara prior to Kerrigan's arrival and was preparing to commence mop-up operations.

* PetTheDog: Surprisingly, he gets one [[spoiler:in the epilogue]]: when [[spoiler:decided to create his own society rather than join Protoss society, he allows those among the Tal'darim who disagree one chance to join the Templars instead]]. Considering he pretty much stated he considered his minions as slaves at the beginning of the game, this is quite impressive.

* OutsideContextVillain: Until ''Legacy of the Void'', everybody knew literally ''nothing'' about this guy, and his influence is [[TheChessmaster so well hidden]] that only the [[spoiler: Overmind's vision of the future]] revealed it. Apart from anybody that's seen that, almost nobody even knows he exists.

** Not just humans, but he has this view of the zerg as well. He seeks to perfect the species, but admits outright that it's utter unattainable. However, it's still worth trying.

* TokenGoodTeammate: WordOfGod describes her as more sympathetic than Abathur, her concept "was to strike a balance between human and monster." She indeed comes out as the least sinister of Kerrigan's lieutenants (despite taking pleasure in killing and conquest, excluding perhaps [[spoiler: Stukov]].

* ReformedButRejected: Inverted. [[spoiler:At the end of ''Legacy of the Void'', the Tal'darim are welcomed by the Daelaam thanks to their HeelFaceTurn, but Alarak chooses to take them away from Aiur to seek their own civilization again. His subjects, however, are allowed the choice to join the Daelaam, but they are not allowed to reconsider later.]]

* PoisonousFriend: Tychus manages to be equal parts amusing and incredibly threatening at all times, due to his deliciously low drawl. He's best buds with Jim Raynor, but the two of them have grown quite different. Jim's looking out for the little people, while Tychus is mostly just interested in guns and money and grumbles whenever Raynor goes off to save "dirt-farmer" colonists. (That being said, later in ''Wings'', he admits that [[GoodFeelsGood fighting the good fight feels great]]...)

* HoneyTrap:[[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] with Raynor about Doctor Ariel Hanson.
--> '''Tosh:''' She's a lovely thing that one. Full of honey. Or maybe, that's just what she wants you think.



* PetTheDog: In ''Heart of the Swarm'', he ''volunteers'' to lead the mission to [[spoiler:break Raynor out of prison. A prison that Matt says "makes New Folson look like a nursery."]] Kerrigan refuses the offer, but that Tosh made the offer at all shows how truly loyal he's become to the Raiders.

** Subverted in one case via BrickJoke. Donny reports about how Zerglings have an allergy to lemon juice. This comes across as another bullshit propaganda line meant to showcase how the Dominion is totally on top of things with regard to the zerg when it really isn't. In ''Heart'', Abathur makes an offhand remark about needing to fix the Zerglings' allergy to lemon juice.
* BreakTheHaughty: Donny Vermillion experiences when confronted with undeniable proof that the government that he worships caused his brother's death.
