Taking place in the magical land of Azeroth, Warcraft chronicles the many fantastical wars between men and orcs ([[FantasyKitchenSink and elves, dwarves, undead, demons, Lovecraftian horrors...]]) often with greater political strife, betrayal and a healthy dose of moral ambiguity in the background. Most notably, its narrative led to the creation of [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Blizzard Orcs]].

* DragonsAreDemonic: In ''Warcraft II'' Dragons were inherently evil, used by orcs as flying shock troops. ''Warcraft III'' had them released from the orcs' mind control into a more neutral position, though their leaders are either good (Alexstraza, the formerly imprisoned Dragonqueen) or evil (Deathwing, pictured above).

* TookALevelInBadass: Captain Thornby. In "The Defense of Strahnbrad" he was a regular Footman, while in "Old Hatreds" he qualifies as a mini-boss at the very least.

* EntropyAndChaosMagic: The burning legion, and associated warlocks, demons, and mages, often use a highly destructive form of magic, including many spells with "chaos" in the name, and Chaos damage being a strong damage type in Warcraft 3.

* FriendlyFireproof: [[Downplayed|Trope]]. While many abilities cannot be used to harm allies (such as the Mountain King's Storm Bolt and the Tauren Chieftain's Shockwave), there are just as many that aren't as selective (such as the Archmage's Blizzard and the Blood Mage's Flame Strike). Similarly, units with SplashDamage can and ''will'' deal damage to your own frontline units, and there's nothing stopping you from manually ordering your own units to attack an allied unit ([[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness or your own units]], if you need to clear up your food count).

** For a semi-literal example, there's the Frost Wyrm. It has the highest base HP and attack damage of any trainable unit, but has rather slow movement speed (particularly for a flying unit) and a painfully slow attack rate of one attack every ''three'' seconds.
