* NonStandardGameOver: The "victory" screen after "In Utter Darkness" instead reads "[[spoiler: Glorious End]]", given that [[spoiler:the Protoss don't "win" so much as "[[DoNotGoGentle go out in a blaze of glory]]"]]. A rare example of this occurring if you ''beat'' a level.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodPaysBetter: one of the first missions involves fleeing Mar Sara. At certain points in the mission, stranded survivors will call for aid. If you go to retrieve them with enough forces, you can end up with a positive net gain in saved resources. Similarly, in the mission where you bail out Narud, it is almost impossible to win the mission on hard mode if you don't bother to search and save the surviving mercenaries scattered around the map. This happens again when you fight in the underground caverns on Char where rescuing lost terran units (especially the firebats) is almost a must. In-universe, helping Tosh and Ariel Hanson will free many dissenters and intellectuals who opposed Mengsk and help humanity in its search for a cure for infestation respectively.
** Siding with Tosh and Ariel Hanson are the canon choices.

Added DiffLines:

* CompanionSpecificSidequest: Most missions in 'the single-player are issued by a particular ''Hyperion'' crew member: Tychus was officially busted out by the Moebius Foundation to serve as contact between them and Raynor, Dr. Hanson is the leader of her fleet of refugees, and Tosh, the leader of the Spectres. While you only have to complete a portion of them to finish the campaign, each one provides additional characterization for the corresponding companion/quest giver, particularly the final missions in each arc, which generally contain major StoryBranching.

* {{Leitmotif}}: A sequence of five notes, first played by a harmonica in the track "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ls_nDYHEZcw#t=1m16s Public Enemy]]", when Tychus shows up before Raynor, recurs in the soundtrack, most triumphantly in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVpWcyy_dBM#t=3m23s Fire and Fury]]", [[spoiler:as Raynor finishes his RousingSpeech]].

*** Actually, Ariel Hansen was not originally infected. Through conversations, you learn she was working on a zerg cure, but at the time of the Haven missions, it was not complete. If you decide to purge the colonies, during the mission you receive an audio transmission that she's locked herself in the laboratory. [[spoiler:She becomes so desperate to finish the cure to save her people that she tests it on herself, but in the process infects herself. Raynor has to personally put her down after the mission is over.]]
