** Chen Stormstout became "Raivo of Pandaria", probabbly a reference to the alcoholic Finn Raivo from ''Pecularities of the National Hunt'', a Soviet comedy classic. He also sounds like a stereotypical VodkaDrunkenski with no Asian accent.

** Chaos and fel orcs to ordinary orcs. While ordinary orcs managed to break free from demonic influence and abandoned their ways of conquest under Thrall, chaos orcs only grew more loyal to the Burning Legion after drinking pit lord blood and became stronger and much more brutal than their uncorrupted counterparts.

* CutAndPasteTranslation: The official Russian translation of ''Warcraft III'' is replete with these. Some of the more JustForFun/{{egregious}} examples:
** Grom Hellscream is translated as Grom the (Young) Bully.
** Maiev Shadowsong (the name itself transliterated as "Mev") is said to come from the "Nightgazer Clan", with her character class, Warden, translated as "Nightgazer". The translators obviously weren't above creating new pieces of lore from whole cloth.
** Chen Stormstout became "Raivo of Pandaria", with Raivo being an ''Estonian'' given name of all things.

** The blood elves were called "the Avengers". Even more confusingly, Dragonhawk Riders say "Glory to the high elves!", as if the Avengers were merely a faction of high elves rather than a new identity altogether, like the blood elves were.

** The Night Elf campaign denies you the use of Chimaeras, their most powerful air unit, for FakeDifficulty. The expansion allows you to use them starting from near the middle of the campaign, but only due to a case of ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman.

** [[FinalBoss Archimonde]] in [[HoldTheLine the last Night Elf mission]], complete with [[NighInvulnerable Divine armor]], which makes him almost invincible for your attacks, and [[AntiMagic Spell Immunity]]. To top it all off he as item that brings him back to life at full health and mana. The player isn't supposed to actually kill him until they gain access to the Chaos Orcs.
