* MythologyGag: When Arthas sets foot for the first time on Undead soil in ''Warcraft 3'', he says "What the hell is that? Looks like the ground there is dead"... 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.

* DevelopmentHell: The upcoming 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.
