** Some features intended to reduce frustration may cross into StopHelpingMe, depending on the player. Fortunately, for some of these (such as interface options) the player can go into the settings and set them back to the old style, if they are more comfortable that way.

* ShootTheShaggyDog: Intentionally invoked. After all the time, effort, and [[NintendoHard nearly impossible missions]] spent [[spoiler: de-infesting Kerrigan]], one of the first things she does is [[spoiler: re-infest herself, and massacre the forces you controlled in the previous campaign]]. All the stirring heroic speeches, good men lost, and heartwarming moments of brotherhood are all utterly wasted. The effect this trope has on [[HeartBrokenBadass Raynor]] even becomes a crucial plot point. [[spoiler: This trope is triumphantly averted at the end of the game, when Kerrigan clearly demonstrates that she had taken the opportunity to redeem herself and become a hero. Also, it was revealed mid-game that something did change- she was freed off Amon's control on her when the artifact activated]].

* DramaticIrony: [[spoiler: Mensgk is helping Mobius create the Hybrid under the belief he will be able to use them to be protected from the Zerg and Protoss. But the player knows from Zeratul's mission that the Terrans were the first race the Hybrids wiped out.]]

* EvenEvilHasStandards: While she is obsessed with revenge against Mensgk, and willing to slaughter entire armies of Terran to reach him, Kerrigan's attitude while doing so is a stark contrast to what she did in ''Brood War''. She tries to avoid unnecessary casualties as much as she can, even [[spoiler:agreeing to give Valerian time to evacuate Korhal's civilian population before her attack, even though this makes it more difficult for her]], stops backstabbing her allies and orders Abathur to stop experiments on human subjects, amongst other things. Whenever she does something that could be considered immoral, [[ShootTheDog she is usually forced by the circumstances and doesn't particularly enjoy it]]. Of course, given that she is [[HordeOfAlienLocusts leading the Zerg]], immoral circumstances [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer tend to be a frequent occurrence]].

After the events of ''VideoGame/StarCraftIIWingsOfLiberty'', Sarah Kerrigan, formerly the Queen of Blades, has been mostly de-infested, leaving her with her original personnality back, but only fragments of her memory as the leader of the Swarm and remains of zerg abilities. The Zerg Swarm, now leaderless, has fragmented into splintered, unorganized factions. While Kerrigan is now hungry for revenge against Mengsk, Raynor tries to convince her to move on. Unfortunately, Mengsk comes after ''them'' first. Using what remains of her abilities, Kerrigan goes on a quest to reclaim the Swarm and use it to crush Mengsk once and for all.

** Remember the unit upgrades you got in Wings of Liberty? The Dominion now has them. In this campaign you will know what it is like to be on the receiving end.

** Kerrigan invoked this about her confict with the Protoss on Kaldir when Lassara calls her out for attacking her group of researchers and colonialists, pointing out the Protoss killed billions of Zerg. While the Protoss are (understandably, considering [[TheDreaded her]] [[EvilOverlord reputation]]) worried about her and trying to have her killed, they ''did'' decide to attack her unprovoked when she was just here to mind her own business. She however aknowledges she doesn't have moral high ground either, as she is essentially just trying to kill them out of self-preservation.

* YouDidntAsk: When Kerrigan asks Dehaka if he knew that [[spoiler:Zurvan]] was going to turn on her, his response is somewhere between this and "I didn't see the point in telling you." [[spoiler:More specificly, he figured Zurvan would probably try ''something'', but that putting self-interest first and consuming others to fuel your own evolution through their essence is just what the Zerg ''do'', making Zurvan's treachery the obvious course of action, and that if Kerrigan was really a Zerg like she claimed, she would understand that too.]]

** Note that in this case, while Revenge is Kerrigan's primary motivation, Mengsk's actions [[spoiler: including the revelation that he's working with tools of said dark god]] give plenty of reason for Kerrigan wanting him dead.
