* FlamingMeteor: Warcraft has featured flaming meteors since its first instalments, always summoned by spellcasters:
** The first game had 'conjurers' summon a multitude of these using the 'Rain of Fire' spell. It was then abscent from WarcraftII as their counterparts in that game, the 'mage', conjured blizzards instead. By the third game the 'Archmage' still summoned blizzards and left the Flaming Meteor summoning to the demons in the form of the Pit Lord HeroUnit's 'Rain of Fire' ability.
** Another example of a {{Justified|Trope}} Flaming Meteor from the third game and onward; Infernals are flaming {{Rock Monster}}s which are summoned by high-level demons, sending them impacting against the ground in a curled-up meteor-like state, after which they get up and begin wrecking their summoner's enemies.

* OneSteveLimit: For the most part it is very unlikely to have more heroes than there are names for them. If it does happen, the game just slaps a roman numeral after the name (Samuro III, Destromath II, etc.)

** Played with between the second and third game. The Death Knights of Warcraft 2 were bound to Ner'Zuhl and transformed into Undead hero units. The Undead have a hero called the Death Knight. The two have absolutely no relation, however, and the Warcraft 2 Death Knights were transformed into Liches.

* NonIndicativeName: "Infernal" literally means "from below." Given that, you'd expect Infernals to erupt from the ground rather than rain down from the sky. Though of course, if you interpret it as "from hell", a giant golem made of hatred and fire is pretty appropriate...

** In Warcraft 3, of its sixteen units and heroes, only five of the Human units are actually Humans. The rest are Elves and especially Dwarves. Arguably something of an ArtifactTitle due to the name being inherited from past Warcraft games, where the faction was almost exclusively Human (and was exclusively Human in WC1)

* UnholyGround: In ''Warcraft III'', undead buildings spread a corruption called Blight, which turns ordinary ground into a black, fog-emitting morass with bones sticking out, and makes undead units regenerate health while on it. Undead buildings (save for the Necropolis) can only be built on blight, while non-undead buildings dispel it in a large radius when built. It can also be removed by area-of-effect dispel-magic spells, a good way to infuriate an Undead opponent since it prevents them from building until they put down some more blight. In ''The Frozen Throne'' expansion, the Undead have an item to create a circle of Blight at a location without needing to wait for a slow-building Necropolis.

* MurderIntoMalevolence:
** Banshees are ghosts of elven women slain during Arthas' conquest of Silvermoon, with [[MakesMeWannaShout only their voices left]] to express their hatred and suffering.
** The first banshee was Sylvannas Windrunner, the honorable ForestRanger who leads Silvermoon's defense. Arthas ignores her [[GetItOverWith request for a quick death]] and instead consigns her to the eternal suffering of undeath; when freed from his domination, she becomes a cruel and spiteful creature who eventually leads the independent splinter faction of the undead known as the Forsaken.

* {{Treants}}:
** Treants are human-sized treemen, usually summoned by the Keeper of the Grove by targeting a forested area. Corrupted Treants can be seen in some maps, where they also have poison attacks or the Entangling Roots ability.
** The giant trees that serve as Night Elf buildings are known as Ancients, and while they can attack and move around, it's very much a last-ditch option, as they do both very, very slowly.
