Trivia: WarCraft
  • The America-based Russian monkeys behind the animated cutscenes of The Legend of Zelda CDi Games and I. M. Meen, Animation Magic, were some time later contracted to do the animation for the Warcraft spin-off Warcraft Adventures. Said game was later cancelled due to the popularity decline of adventure games at the time but still, there's no denying that of all people, Blizzard hired the staff responsible for some of the single most laughable scenes in video game history.
    • But imagine the Youtube Poops that could've come out of that!
    • Because Narm is totally out of character for Blizzard. Yes indeed.
    • What few screenshots from the game that have been seen look a lot better than the studio's previous claims to fame, but Blizzard probably gave them a better budget to work with.
  • The voice of the Tinker hero of Warcraft 3 was done by a Blizzard employee, Kaeo Milker.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Uther the Lightbringer is Deckard Cain and Tassadar! Maiev Shadowsong is Meryl from Metal Gear! And many, many more!
  • What Could Have Been: The Burning Legion was originally intended in Warcraft 3 to be a playable faction. Remnants of this can be found in the map editor.
    • The original game was originally intended as a Warhammer Fantasy adaption, but Games Workshops cancelled the contract with Blizzard at a point where the game was far enough in production that Blizzard decided to change the name and release it anyways.
    • The original version of the Scourge, as envisioned, would use corpses as resources instead of gold. You'd kill creeps instead of mining. This was too hard to balance though.
