*** Kerrigan's change is somewhat bittersweet. While her original VA, Glynnis Talken Campbell, is adored by ''StarCraft'' fans, her new VA is universally nerd-approved Creator/TriciaHelfer. They go so far as to redo several of Kerrigan's lines from a pivotal moment in the first game with the new VA, so at least they didn't half-ass it.

* 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*** The Carrier would have been replaced by the Tempest, a weaker anti-ground focused unit, and the Void Ray, then the Warp Ray, was the new Protoss capital ship.
