** Similarly, Kael'Thas is presented as the protagonist of the human campaign in The Frozen Throne, but after meeting Illidan, he pretty much fades from being a character of his own and Illidan takes center stage. Unlike Maiev, Kael is still playable, but receives next to no characterization from that point forward.

* BalancePowerSkillGimmick: In ''III'', the four playable races are Humans, Orcs, Undead, and Night Elves. Orcs emphasized the brute force of their units, while the Undead emphasized strength in numbers. Humans struck a balance between these two, and the Night Elves are different from all three in that they emphasized magic and ranged combat.

** In Frozen Throne all of the factions gained a fourth Hero unit they could choose from. Since the first three heroes were based on one of the three stats (Intelligence, Speed or Strength), the Fourth one usually came with a gimmick of some kind. One exception was the Crypt Lord, who instead displaced the actual Strength Hero (Dreadlord) as the power hero for the undead, while the Dreadlord ended up becoming the gimmick one (although the dreadlord was always used for his abilities rather than combat strength).
