** It's more that, once Kerrigan reasserts her own individuality after the Overmind's destruction, she becomes DangerouslyGenreSavvy, mixed with some MagnificentBastard.

** The Terran campaign has a single but painful instance of this. In the fifth mission, the Norad II crashes and General Duke radios for help, asking anyone who can hear to come to his aid. Raynor snorts that it's about time he knows what it's like to be getting his hands dirty fighting the Zerg, and he and Kerrigan protests when Arcturus orders them to save Duke. In the very next mission, Arcturus plans to use a Psi Emitter to lure Zerg to a Confederate base and overwhelm them so their forces can escape, and Kerrigan is disgusted by the idea. Her quote "I don't think anyone deserves to have the Zerg unleashed on them" rings hollow when the last mission she was willing to leave Duke to die to them.

** As told above, Terran 6 in the original campaign involves you having an SCV bring a psi emitter to an enemy's base. Provided you know the map well enough to send it the right way, and have a science vessel cast defense matrix on it, you can do this right at the start of the map and win within 30 seconds.

* ColourCodedArmies: In the minimap your forces are always in (bright, since dark green is a possible team color) green, and your enemies are in the color they wear. You can change this so that you = green and enemy = red, either just on the minimap or on both the minimap and the game screen.

*** The final three Original Zerg missions break the "teal heroes" rule with Teal Protoss forces. It can get very confusing seeing a bunch of Zealots and Dragoons and thinking that the Protoss sent overpowered units against you (When you're supposed to be defending against Dark Templar in one of them).

** And this applies to heroes as well. Kerrigan, for instance, is colored purple in the Zerg campaigns and [[spoiler:Duran]] is colored teal. Both are somewhat justified - red is Daggoth's Brood's color, and Kerrigan is opposed to him so she wouldn't be likely to use his color (Kerrigan is red in later missions), and as for [[spoiler:Duran]], technically he's still a Terran, sort of, so he uses the color of Terran heroes. Kerrigan also has a unique sprite, so she doesn't need a different color to differentiate herself from your ordinary units, which is why heroes are always given unique colors.

* ProfaneLastWords: Subverted in ''Brood War''. What Vadm. Alexei Stukov meant as his last words to his killer Samir Duran, "To Hell with you!" ended up not being such: he lingered on for about a minute, long enough to reveal to the UED [[spoiler:that Duran had been working with the Zerg the whole time]].

*** Not the same thing. Yes, she was thinking about leaving Duke in a planet already infested by the zerg. But in the next mission they unleash the zerg on a planet that has no infestation whatsoever.
