** Arcturus leaves Kerrigan to die on Tarsonis after foiling the Protoss Fleet. The Overmind then remakes her into a Zerg-Terran hybrid who proceeds to manipulate Arcturus into helping her and then castrates his Dominion Forces by killing his best available General, Edmund Duke.

The Overmind then remakes her into a Zerg-Terran hybrid who proceeds to manipulate Arcturus into helping her and then castrates his Dominion Forces by killing his best available General, Edmund Duke. Years later, Kerrigan pushes the Dominion to the brink of defeat before being purified by the Xel'naga artifact. Arcturus attacks the Umojan research facility where Kerrigan is being held in an attempt to capture her but she escapes, becomes the Queen of Blades again, and reunites the Zerg swarm before invading Korhal IV and ultimately killing Arcturus.

* FinalExchange: The franchise is full of these, especially in the sequel ''VideoGame/StarcraftII''.
** Kerrigan and Mengsk
--> '''Mengsk''': I made ya into a monster, Kerrigan!
--> '''Kerrigan''': You made us all into monsters. [[spoiler:Uses pyschic attack that blows up Mengsk and his entire office.]]
** Malash and Alarak, when the latter is close to the Pit of Sacrifice.
--> '''Malash''': [[YouAreTooLate The master has already won, Alarak.]] You will lead our people to their doom...
--> '''Alarak''': You're right about one thing, Malash. ''I! will! lead them!'' ''(pushes Malash in the Pit)''
** Narud and Stukov
--> '''Narud''': Stukov...you came here to gloat, haven't you?
--> '''Stukov''': No, I came here to say "good night", you son of a bitch! ''(fires a Corrosive Blast that destroys Narud)''
** Amon and Kerrigan
--> '''Amon''': You are but a product of the flawed cycle. Manipulated for the entirety of your existence...
--> '''Kerrigan''': You know nothing about me! I care little for the xel'naga's Infinite Cycle or your twisted lies. No, I choose something different. I choose freedom... for all of us. ''(obliterates Amon)''

* BittersweetEnding: The ending of the original VideoGame/{{StarCraft|I}}. ''Brood War'' on the other hand, is a DownerEnding.

to:

* BittersweetEnding: In most cases.
**
The ending of the original VideoGame/{{StarCraft|I}}. ''Starcraft'' ends with Tassadar heroically destroying the Zerg Overmind at the cost of his own life, but Aiur is still overrun with Zerg, Mengsk has won and become TheEmporer, Raynor continues to fight the now leaderless Zerg alongside the Protoss and Kerrigan is still the Queen of Blades.
** ''Starcraft II'' ultimately ends with Kerrigan becoming a god-like Xel'Naga, saving the universe and [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence leaving the man she loves behind]]. [[spoiler:Or does she?]]
**
''Brood War'' on the other hand, is a DownerEnding.

* StealthyMook: Protoss Dark Templar and Observers are permanently invisible, while Terran Ghosts and Wraiths / Banshees use energy to do so. In the first game, the Protoss Arbiter turned all friendly units around it invisible, this role is taken over by the Mothership in the second. All Zerg units are invisible when burrowed, but only the Lurker can attack while burrowed, and only Roaches and Infestors can move while buried.

** The original supercarriers all had a large supply of cryogenicly frozen embryos and fertilized eggs as well as the [[UterineReplicator technology]] for them to develop in (which would continue to work for 50 years until breaking down). Which could explain the initial population.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall:
** In ''[[VideoGame/StarCraftIIWingsOfLiberty Wings of Liberty]]'', just before the final mission if you click on Tychus he will comment that he is worried about the artifact they are using and that he fears it might shatter the entire space-time continuum. Raynor's response is to tell him that it's not science fiction.
** Ten years passed between the release of the original ''VideoGame/{{StarCraft|I}}'' and the announcement of its sequel. What were the first word's spoken by a character and the only line in the trailer?
-->'''Tychus Findlay''': ''"Hell... it's about time."''
** In [[VideoGame/StarCraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm Heart of the Swarm]], when breaking into a lab, Kerrigan notes how heavily fortified it is and comments, "Just getting inside will be an achievement." Sure enough, the [[CosmeticAward achievement]] for completing the ensuing mission is named, "Just Getting Inside".
