Funny: StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
For StarCraft I, see here.

For Heart of the Swarm, see here.

For the multiplayer, see here.


  • If you complete the "Ghost of a Chance" scenario of Starcraft II, Tosh will become enraged at Raynor during the post-mission communication and will stab a Voodoo doll. It has no effect on Raynor, to Tosh's perplexity, but Tychus finds himself being hit with piercing pain and tossed around the room. Then later when Nova gets ahold of it...
  • "Bar Brawl", after Jim's beating up of Tychus:
    Jim: And fix my damn jukebox.
    Tychus: L'il help here? ...anybody?
  • Tychus's reaction to the Odin.
    "Brutah, it is the single greatest creation in the history of mankind."
  • Terran's Nuclear Missile has "Take it!" painted on its side.
  • Mission "Engine of Destruction". Tychus shows his love of the Odin in hilarious ways:
    "Now how'd I miss this button with a skull on it?"
    "Just wake me up when you're ready. I reckon a small nuke oughta do it."
    • Matt's reaction to Tychus's talks after the first base:
    Matt: Does he always talk this much, sir?
    Raynor: Yup. Once you get him into a fight, he never shuts up.
  • After the opening cutscene in which Raynor shoots the TV in the bar out of anger at Mengsk, every time you go to the Cantina (even after moving to the Hyperion), there is a paper taped to the TV that says "Don't shoot the screen."
    • "P.S. I'll add the cost of the TV to your tab."
  • Introduction to the penultimate mission:
    Tychus: You know, I've been thinkin'.
    Raynor: Scares me more than the Zerg.
  • Several moments from the news broadcasts and commercials:
    • Kate Lockwell breaking loose and letting out several excited cheers when she's promoted to lead anchor when her predecessor, Donny Vermillion, has himself committed.
    • Also, Kate's heavily censored interview of a Dominion ghost.
      We expect to [bleep] them... very soon.
    • "Nuke Noodles: Call down the flavor!"
    • "Take your shot at life: iPistol!"
    • "WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT WOMAN?! TELL HER NOT TO INTERRUPT MY INTERVIEWS!"
    • All of Donny's hilariously inept attempts at censoring various news stories to favor Emperor Mengsk.
    (cutting Kate off) I'm sorry, Kate, I've just received news that - er. Um. *Beat* Cut - cut to commercial.
    • Jim's occasional retorts also provide a good chuckle.
  • "HAVE A NICE DAY <3"
  • "Ain't no time to be lying down on the job, general."
  • There's of course the Blizzard famous Stop Poking Me quotes. The ghosts, for example, have taken their barely contained psychopathy Up to Eleven in this installment...
    Ghost: Whenever I see a world untouched by war, a world of innocence, a world of lush forests and clear rivers... I really just wanna nuke the crap out of it.
    Reaper: Thought I was signin' up to be a Repo Man, imagine my surprise...
    Firebat: "Ack. Turns out I hate the smell of napalm in the morning."
    Medic: "Dammit, I'm a medic, not a doctor! *beat* Oh."
    Battlecruiser: "The Yamato is loaded... and so am I!"
    • Even more hilarious, the Thor doesn't even wait past the fourth poke.
    Thor: "I am here! Click me!"
    You went to bed early last night.
    You never return my calls.
    Restraining order? What about our love?
    I have pictures of you... hundreds.
  • I can't be the only one who laughed his ass off at the "Heal Bus" comment of the Medivac's description at the Hyperion Hangar...can I?
  • Swann can be relied on to bring the snark whenever.
    • Post "Ghost of a Chance", regarding Nova:
    Swann: Your girl came through alright.[...]
    Raynor: She ain't "my girl", Swann.
    Swann: Hmm. Scary female assassin type that's going to wind up trying to kill you some day? She sure seems like your type.
    • In the opening of "Supernova", where Raynor's force must outrun a wall of fire:
    Swann: Hope you brought your sunscreen, Cowboy.
    Raynor: Now ain't the time, Swann!
  • Tychus and Raynor are discussing the completed artifact:
    Tychus: I just wish the damn thing came with an instruction manual. For all we know, we could be upsettin' the entire space-time continuum.
    Raynor: Easy, Tychus. This ain't science fiction.
  • This exchange:
    Raynor: Say... didn't you end up gettin' married the last time we were there?
    Matt: I told you before: if I had known what the prize was, I never would've joined that card game!
  • The Too Dumb to Live mentality of the AI really kicks in in Media Blitz, where the Odin is implied to be the most powerful weapon of war the Dominion, or perhaps humanity period, has ever created. Doesn't stop any enemy unit at all from running in and attacking you without any concern for their safety. Considering the unit is so big it can knock over streetlights and crush cars just by walking around, it can be pretty amusing to see a lone marine charge in guns blazing at you.
  • The trailer for the official crossover mod Blizzard DOTA has some hilarious self-aware narration.
    These heroes are forced to fight to the death in an endless battle with no purpose other than ladder points.
  • Raynor got a few quotes in the Hyperion:
    "Ahh, I like all the pretty lights."
    "I should go for a walk outside... Oh wait."
    "That's it. Goin' to have to start pretendin' like I'm wrokin'."
    "Standin' around talking to my damn self..."
    "What the Hell was I doing?"
  • When Raynor arrives at the rendezvous point for Moebius and is met with Valerian and the Dominion, Raynor is hailed by them in the subsequent mission briefing. When Valerian tries to posture and refers to him as "Jim", Raynor closes the channel, smirks, then re-opens it a couple seconds later. Cue Death Glare and "I can see why my father wants to kill you."
    • In the same scene a moment later, there's this exchange.
    Valerian: Everyone wonders if I will be as good an emperor as my father. But I want something more: to prove I will be a better emperor, and a better man.
    Raynor: That shouldn't be hard.
  • In Supernova, Raynor must get an alien artifact and get out of the planet before it gets completely consumed by its own sun. Guess who choses this moment to show up?
    Tal'Darim Executor: James Raynor! We were expecting your arrival... Now you will finally pay for stealing our sacred reliques!
    Raynor (sounding more annoyed than worried): Oh shit, not the Tal'darim again! Seriously, they should learn when to quit!
  • Ariel Hanson saying "WE SURE GAVE MENGSK A KICK IN THE PANTS!" all excitingly after "Media Blitz". (If you kept her that long, that is.)
