* MythologyGag: The third Terran mission is the third Terran mission from the previous game. In both missions, you control a small Terran enclave next to a huge Zerg base and you must endure increasingly large Zerg attacks for 20 minutes while an evacuation fleet arrives.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Early footage of the single-player campaign hinted at a subplot of the ''Hyperion'' crew considering a mutiny due to being underpaid and overworked. There is a similar subplot in the final product, but the motivation for the crew is not working conditions, it's [[spoiler:Jim's decision to work with the Dominion to defeat/rescue Kerrigan]]. The same footage showed you could return to Mar Sara for a mission later in the game. This was also scrapped.
** Kachinsky was originally planned to be another main character with his own set of missions to provide.
** At some point Donny was planned to be killed by riots during [[spoiler:the uprising on Korhal after "Media Blitz"]]. He would then have been revealed to have been a robot. Though this plot element was scrapped, his sparking half-destroyed robotic body is still in the map editor.
** All over the place with units, who had abilities constantly shifting around during development. To list what would be some of the more influential changes:
*** The Viking would have been built from the Factory with the air mode transformation as an upgrade. Around this time there was a different Terran ATA unit, the Predator.
*** The Queen would have evolved along with the player's Hatchery, gaining more HP, power and stronger abilities as it evolved.
*** The Carrier would have been replaced by the Tempest, a weaker anti-ground focused unit, and the Void Ray, then the Warp Ray, was the new Protoss capital ship.

Added DiffLines:

* LyingCreator: As the trilogy's story unfolded, a lot of fans pegged it as being a rehash of ''VideoGame/WarCraft3'' -- an outside force (The Hybrids/The Burning Legion) has arrived to destroy the world, and the three warring factions (Terrans-Zerg-Protoss/Humans-Orcs-Night Elves) put aside their differences and join forces to defend their home and drive back the outsiders. Blizzard shot down this idea, noting that between the clashing personalities and personal grudges of the leaders of the three races, and the bitter history of warfare between them, it was unlikely for them to all come together as one. [[spoiler:In ''Legacy of the Void'', this is exactly what happens in the Epilogue -- the three races team up and enter the Void to destroy Amon.]]
