* JustHereForGodzilla: Some players themselves think NoPlotNoProblem. You do not have to play through the single player campaigns to enjoy the multiplayer aspect of the game.

* JustHereForGodzilla: Some players themselves think NoPlotNoProblem. You do not have to play through the single player campaigns to enjoy the multiplayer aspect of the game. Blizzard eventually acknowledged this by making ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'''s multiplayer free-to-play while keeping all campaigns bar ''[[VideoGame/StarCraftIIWingsOfLiberty Wings of Liberty]]'' as paid content.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Fans disagree on if Arcturus Mengsk started out as a genuinely well-meaning rebel who fell victim to HeWhoFightsMonsters, or if he was always just interested in personal power and used his rebellion to acquire it. For those that think he started off well-meaning, by the time of his downfall it's obvious he's cast off the pretenses of good intentions behind his evil acts, at which point it's up for discussion ''when'' HeWhoFightsMonsters. Fans also argue if he's actually AffablyEvil or just FauxAffablyEvil. Helping to feed the discussion is the fact that the writers who have worked on the game scripts and novels for the franchise can't seem to agree on such things themselves.

* {{Mondegreen}}: Some of the unit quotes seem to fall into this. For example, the Protoss battle cry "My life for Aiur!" can be heard as '''[[MemeticMutation MY WIFE FOR HIRE!]]''' or "[[ProfessionalKiller MY LIFE FOR HIRE!]]"

* {{Fanon}}: All Zerg can be reincarnated, not just Cerebrates and Tarrasques. This comes up way more than you'd think.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Competitive ''Franchise/StarCraft'' is absolutely dominated by South Koreans. Of the ten most successful tournament players in the world (as measured in dollars earned via tournament play), only one of them is a "foreigner"--that is, a player who grew up outside Korea. It's something of a RiteOfPassage now for a foreign player to defeat a Korean in tournament play.

** Valerian Mengsk. Though some of it is a result of others, the fact remains he instigated and took part in a grand plan that has currently culminated with [[spoiler:Valerian sitting on the Dominion throne, and Raynor and Kerrigan, previously the biggest threats to Arcturus's reign, are his allies, or at least are not his enemies anymore.]] ''And'' it's public knowledge that he [[spoiler:helped de-infest Kerrigan]] and coordinated the [[spoiler:evacuation of Korhal's cities during her attack]], so he's likely going to be hailed as a war hero that helped bring peace and stability to the sector. He may be a far better man for it, but Valerian is definitely his father's son when it comes to planning and acquiring power.

* CreatorsPet: Blizzard loves Nova. She's repeatedly emphasized to be one of the most powerful Ghost agents in history, with psionic powers rivaling Kerrigan before her infestation and completing training in a record two and a half years; she received two novels and a graphic novel series focusing on her; and she features in ''Starcraft II'' in cameos that serve no real purpose except to have her in the game, then is the focus of the trilogy's first mission pack. Yet for all the attention Blizzard gives her, fans have a lukewarm reception and don't care for her.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: For someone who is the star of a game that never comes out, having her appearance path being minor and then considered non-canon in ''VideoGame/StarcraftIIWingsOfLiberty'', and then only being a OneSceneWonder in ''VideoGame/StarCraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm''... Nova has garnered a lot of popularity. Must be [[MsFanservice because of her looks]]. Eventually Blizzard answered on that, and gave Nova something to star on... well not exactly a game, but DLC missions as a post-release content of ''VideoGame/StarCraftIILegacyOfTheVoid''

* PortingDisaster: The Nintendo 64 is the only console that ''Starcraft I'' has been ported to. Although the effort to put both the original game and the expansion into a cartridge had been respectable, a LOT of concessions were made in order to make it possible.
