*** Goblin Land Mines can be this if used correctly; especially when used against buildings. As seen in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9opu7egcRQ this video]] the player successfully destroyed Archimonde's base in the final level of the game by using Goblin Land Mines combined with the Invulnerability Potion to destroy all of Archimonde's production buildings.

*** Level 11 "The Dead Rise as Quel'Thalas Falls" for the Orcs. This mission is a rude awakening due to limited gold in each mine compared to previous missions, making expansions necessary to keep pressure on. The mines are spread out, and the Humans apply pressure with a comprehensive tier-3 arsenal. Death Knights are introduced, but are limited to two basic spells: Haste which only affects limited numbers of units (Ogre-Magi gain no real benefit), and Raise Dead which allows you to summon very weak skeletons from the dead.

On top of that is {{Invisibility}} and [[KillItWithIce Blizzard]]. Imagine the frustration of having an invisible mage(s) enter your base and massacre your entire economy by unloading a deadly icicles upon your workers. If the Human player is able to wall-out Ogre-Magi from entering their base, this sneak attack is typically executed.

executed. Not even walling off your base against Mage infiltrators is fool proof, due to the long range of the Blizzard spell.

*** A group of human Mages are considered broken in the hands of a skilled player for one, simple, reason; the ability to Polymorph an army. And this isn't like the Polymorph we know today which usually turns people into sheep for 30 seconds before changing back...no...these people are gone for good.//

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In the Blood Elf campaign's third mission, "The Dungeons of Dalaran," Kael comes across two captured Blood Elves that are, for some reason, polymorphed as spiders before they reach the weapon rack to rearm themselves as two Spell Breakers. Why they're spiders is never explained, and often goes completely unnoticed to the player since the spiders are marked as enemy targets.

** Coming across some secret areas and things throughout Warcraft III can be considered this, such as the Panda Relaxation area in "Digging up the Dead," the Largest Panda Ever in "Brothers in Blood," or the Penguin King in "The Return to Northrend."

** Thrall was considered one in ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', and the early years of ''World of Warcraft'' for his success to turn the Horde into what it is today...before the [[CreatorsPet overuse]] of the character turned him into a BaseBreakingCharacter starting from Cataclysm.
** Illidan Stormrage as well. Many felt that he got the worst treatment in World of Warcraft by [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter being stuck in the Black Temple of Outland]].

** Sylvanas is... even more complicated. Her primary motivation is vengeance. Then she takes over Lordaeron not only by defeating Balanazzar's faction of Burning Legion, but also by betraying and butchering Garithos' faction of Alliance.
** Varimathras is an ''even worse'' VillainProtagonist than Arthas, Kel'Thuzard, and Anub'arak. Not only he has a bad case of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder, but he is also a TokenEvilTeammate in an ''already evil'' faction (Sylvanas'), as if to remind everyone that being a Nathrezim is EvilerThanThou.
