*** Saurfang is the confirmed Orc racial leader. [[spoiler: If one were to do the series of Blood Elf quests at the end of the Ghostlands chain where you contact the leaders of the Horde, Sylvanas, who is now warchief, sends you to the Orc leader: Saurfang.]]

** It's also a repeat of the orcish redemption arc from ''Warcraft III''. This is something of a BaseBreaker among fans, since Many don't see the point of going through it all over again.

-->''"Misunderstood and cast aside, these diverse and powerful races strive to overcome their differences and unite as one in order to win freedom for their people and prosper in a land that has come to hate them. In the Horde, action and strength are valued above diplomacy, and its leaders earn respect by the blade, wasting no time with politics. The brutality of the Horde's champions is focused, giving a voice to those who fight for survival"''

* BloodOath: The Blood Oath of the Horde, in which the one saying the oath swears absolute loyalty to the Horde.
-->''"Lok'tar ogar! Victory or death - it is these words that bind me to the Horde. For they are the most sacred and fundamental of truths to any warrior of the Horde. I give my flesh and blood freely to the Warchief. I am the instrument of my Warchief's desire. I am a weapon of my Warchief's command. From this moment until the end of days I live and die - For the Horde!"''
** FrequentlyBrokenUnbreakableVow: Subverted, sort of. On the surface, it would appear the Blood Oath is often broken by Horde members leaving to join neutral organizations, and more prominently, the Darkspear Rebellion. But WordOfGod revealed it's not just an Oath to the Warchief, but an Oath to the Horde itself and the ideals it represents. For example, when the assassin struck Vol'jin, he no longer recognized Garrosh as his Warchief but still considered himself part of the family that is the Horde, so the Oath remained unbroken. Also subverted in that Horde and Alliance members who join neutral factions still align themselves with that home faction. Example, Thrall became the leader of the Earthen Ring but he is still a member of the Horde, and he joins in their campaign on the alternate Draenor in ''Warlords of Draenor''.

* TrueCompanions: This was always a theme between the Orcs, Trolls, and Tauren, all of which banded together and formed close bonds to help survive in a hostile world. This is best exemplified by the [[http://classic.battle.net/war3/images/orc/spells/spiritlink.gif icon]] for Spirit Link ability in Warcraft III. Goblins(particularly Gazlowe), and the ogres are sometimes included as well. How the other races fare with this trope is unclear, but considering the new Warchief is a strong advocate of this mentality as seen by the quote at the top, they may pick up on it. Ironically the expansion to point this out as in the above quote, was the one many fans feel broke the theme, due to the Flanderization of the orcs.
--> '''Vol'jin:''' ''"I'll tell ya what de Horde is. De Horde that me an' Thrall built. [[TrueCompanions It be a family]]. When de whole world try ta put us down, da family come an' pick us back up."''
** The blood elves and the Forsaken have their own special relationship: The Banshee Queen Sylvanas, who rules the Forsaken, was in life the Ranger-General of Silvermoon City, and both races share a past scarred by the Scourge[[note]]the Forsaken being undead freed from the Lich King's will, the blood elves being the survivors of Quel'thalas after the Lich King's march[[/note]]. The only reason the blood elves were even accepted to the Horde in the first place was due to Sylvanas' insistence.
-->'''Sylvanas:''' ''"I haven't lost any love for my homeland or its people, as you know. I've fought tooth and nail for Silvermoon to be allowed a place beside Undercity and Orgrimmar at the negotiating table."''
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: So who's the Orc racial leader after the Siege of Orgrimmar? A few tweets have confirmed that it isn't Thrall, and that it might be either Saurfang or Eitrigg, but no one knows. Though, most likely, it will be [[http://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/screenshots/normal/501397-high-overlord-saurfang.jpg Saurfang]].

The Horde which was first reunited under the leadership of Thrall on the continent of Kalimdor and later expanded to other races of Azeroth. It opposes the Alliance and forms the playable Horde races in ''World of Warcraft'', and also forms the Darkspear Rebellion when Garrosh forms the "True Horde".

*** In the case of the Orcs, this is more a case of CharacterRerailment. Thrall's peaceful nature and desire to get along with the Alliance isn't a very Orcish value, and Garrosh (at least in the WotLK and Cataclysm eras) is a much better example of the average Orc and their values than Thrall was.
