Shout Out / Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Go To

Just like its parent game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft has a large number of references to pop culture:

Basic and Classic

Curse of Naxxramas

  • Another Holy Grail shout-out is the Undertaker's battle cry: "Bring out your dead!"
  • Deathlord's flavour text simply states "Rise from your grave", but attributes the quote to Kel'thuzad
  • The Unrelenting Warrior will have you know that he'll be back - he will be, too.

Goblins vs. Gnomes

Blackrock Mountain

The Grand Tournament

The League of Explorers

Whispers of the Old Gods

Mean Streets of Gadgetzan

  • The flavor text for Kabal Chemist is a reference to Family Guy.
  • In the Gadgetzan game board, one of buildings - implied to be one of Jade Lotus' dens - has a katana stuck in its wall. When rapidly clicked, it'll spawn a green magical dragon, similar to one that appears whenever Genji draws his Dragonblade.
  • White Eyes: "My life for Aya!"
  • Aya Blackpaw's entry quote is "Golems are a girl's best friend!"

Journey to Un'Goro

Knights of the Frozen Throne

Kobolds & Catacombs

The Witchwood

The Boomsday Project

Rastakhan's Rumble

Rise of Shadows

Saviors of Uldum

Descent of Dragons and Galakrond's Awakening

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire



  • The first Tavern Brawl of 2017 pitted the player against an AI-controlled Dark Wanderer, who started with three Secrets in play. Triggering all of them summoned a portal that, on the next turn, transformed him into the Cow King, heralded by "You have made it to the Secret Level!"
  • One of the weapons in the Rumbledome Tavern Brawl is a Board With a Nail in It.
