Interesting Things in the Campaign

Posts: 966
I've found a few interesting things in the campaign, some of them I found, others I found on the wiki. Some are worth noting.

- Kerrigan mentions Dr. Narud's pathetic sharade. It is also worth noting that Narud backwards is Duran.

- The Dark Voice mentions that it is the protoss' creation, and it will be their end. The Xel'Naga created the Protoss.

- Along with the above statement, if you were to brighten the dark voice portrait, you would see that it is an alien, but looks different from the Protoss.

- If you get ghosts, if you look at the ghost rifle, eventually a ghost that looks like Nova will uncloak. It's most likely Nova, especially since she said, "I'll see you around, Jim."

- In the cutscenes before Supernova and Welcome to the Jungle, the units are Alikae, not Tal'darim. This is probably a mistake.

- The Xel'Naga artifact, according to Dr. Hanson, is deadly to Protoss. It would suck the life right out of them.

Does anybody know any more?

Tosh's doll works on Tychus, meaning it's possible to psionically mistake Tychus for Raynor.

In the secret mission, you can see a monitor showing people stealing a couch.

There's actually no evidence at all, in the Protoss missions, that Kerrigan is going to save everything.

In the secret mission right as you leave the brutalisk room you find out Mengsk has captured a Metroid.
The Battlecruiser (and maybe the Ghost, I forget) in "Cutthroat" are assigned as a "Dominion" unit rather than Orlan's Mercs.

In the third mission, if you're able to get into the very back of the zerg base, you can see a Tauren marine almost off screen, then it jumps into an outhouse and flies away. (From then on in space missions, every now and again in the backdrop, you can see an outhouse flying around).

Also in the mission Piercing the shroud, right after the section with your new best robot friend, you get to choose some reinforcements, and if you walk all the way out and to the right side of the little open area they drop in from, you can see a murloc marine on a floating island.

Well that's actually interesting; perhaps this is some hidden plot point? Surely something like this couldn't be a mistake.

Not only that, but it looks a lot like Karass =)

Aside from you know the mission where Zeratul talks to Tassadar and Tassadar tells him the Overmind created Kerrigan, so that the Swarm could break free from the Hybrid's rule and then in the next mission you see what happens if the Hybrid control the Swarm.

Then the Hybrid even tells the Protoss in the last of the Protoss missions that there was one who could have saved them but they killed her and the Protoss unanimously say 'Kerrigan!'

But you're right, no evidence what-so-ever. None.

Technically, that is evidence that Kerrigan might save everything, not that she is going to save everything. Also, it's not clear that the Hybrid is a reliable witness. Nevertheless, your point is well taken.

You forget the part where Zeratul tells Raynor "I only know that she must live."

Sure- again, evidence that she might save everything, and that no else can.

He also captured a Tauren Marine. I'm not sure how that would benefit Hybrid research though.

So . . . what? First, you're trusting some weird glowy guy who's been spending his time near the Overmind's corpse. Secondly, what does the Hybrids controlling the Swarm have to do with Kerrigan saving everything? There's an implied connection. There's no evidence

Reading comprehension is in short supply these days. The Dark Voice says that there was one that might have stopped him, but in their recklessness, the Protoss mistook her for the true threat.

No names are mentioned in that statement.

We already know Zeratul's opinion. But the one everybody jumps on is Artanis' "Kerrigan? How could we have known?"

All that means is that the Protoss were fooled regarding Kerrigan. That could just as easily mean being tricked into keeping her alive as them killing her. There are already any number of female characters in WoL Liberty who could fulfill the requirements of both being "her" and being "mistaken for the true threat."

Given the trailer's I've seen, Nova could easily top that list, since she's out to get Kerrigan, the presumed savior of the universe.
