* The America-based Russian studio behind the animated cutscenes of VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames and ''{{IM Meen}}'', Animation Magic, were some time later contracted to do the animation for the ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' spin-off ''Warcraft Adventures''. Said game was later cancelled due to the popularity decline of {{adventure game}}s [[PopularityPolynomial at the time]] but still, they hired the staff responsible for some extremely infamous scenes, even if what few screenshots from the game that have been seen look a lot better than the studio's previous claims to fame.

CommonKnowledge: Terenas Menethil is commonly assumed to have been voiced by Creator/TonyJay, even Behind the voice actors. Except it was actually Ted Whitnety, who died shortly after (Jay died in 2006).
* DevelopmentHell: The movie. Talk of an adaptation started in 2006, with the current release being a decade later. The plot flip-flopped between being about the First War to being set just prior to WorldOfWarcraft (the reason cited being that the popularity of the franchise was from the MMO, not the RTS'.). Sam Raimi was originally supposed to direct but the project was put off so that Raimi could focus on other films. He eventually left, citing mismanagement on Blizzard's part who had vetoed most of his pre-production work. It was not until 2013 that the movie was finally SavedFromDevelopmentHell.

** The original game was originally intended as a ''WarhammerFantasy'' adaption, but GamesWorkshops cancelled the contract with Blizzard at a point where the game was far enough in production that Blizzard decided to change the name and release it anyways.

* MythologyGag: When Arthas and Jaina set foot for the first time on Undead soil in ''Warcraft 3'', they say "What the hell is that? Looks like the land around that granary is...dying"... just like Jim Raynor in ''StarCraft'' when he sets foot for the first time on Zerg soil, only in this case the ground is alive.

* ModelDissonance: In ''Warcraft III'' the Acolyte and Sludge Monster units have their skins stored on the same file, so changing one will change the other. As the Acolyte sees a lot more use than the sludge monster, this can cause considerable surprise if the skin is switched using the editor.
