Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cho'gall first appeared in Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness (1995).
  • Cho is voiced by Patrick Seitz. Gall is voiced by Grant George.
  • Cho'gall was intended for inclusion almost since the beginning.[3][4]
  • Cho'gall was one of the four heroes revealed at BlizzCon 2015.[1]
  • In addition to the normal mount options, Cho'gall can choose to carry any horse-type mount over his shoulder.
  • The game pairs one player's choice of skin (chosen at random) with the other player's choice of mount.
  • The game also combines the names of the two players, using the first three letters of Cho's player's name and the last four of Gall's player's name. For example, Mike and Flynn would make Mik'lynn.
  • Cho'gall's appearance was based mainly on his Warcraft II and comic designs, to give him a classic look. His armor bears the emblem of the Twilight's Hammer clan.
