Angel hero

  • Gul'dan: Darkness Incarnate, allied with a being of Light. How... whimsical.
  • Angelhero: <hero dependent>
  • Angel hero: <hero dependent>
  • Gul'dan: Your posturing does not impress me, being of Light.
Emoji Auriel Pack 1 Auriel Meh.png


  • Auriel: You manipulated the hope of your people to further your own power. Deplorable.
  • Gul'dan: Hope, when corrupted, is a potent source of power, and it seems you.. are filled with it.
Emoji Cho Pack 1 Cho Happy.pngEmoji Gall Pack 1 Gall Happy.png


  • Gul'dan: It is time, Cho'gall. Join your master in battle.
  • Cho: We serve a new master now!

Diablo 3 Demon

  • Gul'dan: Oh. What manner of demon are you?

Warcraft Demon

  • Gul'dan: The Legion is here! My plans will have to accelerate.
  • Warcraft Demon: <hero dependent>
  • Horde hero: <hero dependent>
  • Gul'dan: As the master wishes.
Emoji Illidan Pack 1 Illidan Meh.png


  • Gul'dan: The thief who calls himself 'lord'. Do you desire my power, or do you only take from the dead?
  • Illidan: Let's go already.
During the Night Elf campaign in Reigns of Chaos, Gul'dan's skull was used as a powerful artifact by the demons invading Ashenvale. Illidan would later claim the skull and use its powers to kill the demons himself.
  • Illidan: (scoffs) You...
  • Gul'dan: Do you greet everyone with such contempt, or just those whose power you've stolen?
Emoji Medivh Pack 1 Medivh Happy.png


  • Gul'dan: Ah, the so-called Guardian. (laughs) How fitting that we are allied once again.
  • Medivh: This... "alliance" is only temporary.
Gul'dan worked with Medivh during the First War in which Medivh allowed the orcs into Azeroth while Gul'dan would have them rampage at the wishes of their demonic masters
  • Medivh: When we last worked together, we nearly brought an entire world to ruin. That will not happen again!
  • Gul'dan: Indeed, this time I shall bring it fully to ruin.
Emoji Murky Pack 1 Murky Happy.png

New Horde hero

  • Gul'dan: So this is what became of my Horde? (scoffs) I should crush you like a gnat!
  • New Horde hero: <hero dependent>
  • New Horde hero: <hero dependent>
  • Gul'dan:  The Horde was a weapon, a tool. Nothing more! You idealism taxes me.
Gul'dan originally had the Horde acting upon the beck and wishes of his demon masters until his puppet warchief, Blackhand, was ousted. The Horde, since Ogrim Doomhammer's tenure, has only kept the warlocks for their power, while Thrall's new Horde has since phased out Gul'dan's warlocks and necrolytes in favor of shamans.

  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Gul'dan: Do not concern yourself. My fate is beyond your feeble grasp.

  • Gul'dan: (laughs) Such delusion.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Gul'dan: Knowledge is power, and you... know nothing.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Gul'dan: You dare me mock me? We will see who laughs last.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Gul'dan: Never.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Gul'dan: Squelch your gibbering, fool!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Gul'dan: You may cease your yammering at any time. Now, for example.
  • Hero: You..
  • Gul'dan: (laughs) Good to see I've not been forgotten.

Eliminations[edit | edit source]

Hero Quote Audio Background
vs. Arthas Look at what you've become. Twisted beyond recognition. Gul'dan is likely not referring to Arthas, but to Ner'zhul, who was turned into the Lich King in the form of a set of armor by Kil'jaeden after the events of Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal.
vs. Auriel (laughs) Our enemy is hopeless.
vs. Cho'gall Ever the student, never the master.
vs. Diablo 3 Demon Demonic energy, hmm. Familiar, yet different.
vs. Warcraft Demon Your fel energies will serve me well, demon.
vs. Human hero Yet another pale dog brought to heel. Could be considered a Warcraft 1 reference. "The pale dogs approach!" was the enemy approaching quote.
Eugh, if only these worthless humans could fight as well as they die. Orc victory quote from Warcraft 1.
vs. New Horde hero Pitiful. The Horde could've been so much more.
vs. Old Horde hero You know better than to trifle with me.
vs. Paladin hero A paladin? (laughs) Your corpse could be of use.
vs. hero with kill streak Your spree has met its end.
Generic Your soul will serve me well.
Whatever is left of your power.. is mine.
That was a mistake.
Oh, your suffering has only begun.
Crushed: body and spirit.

Quote Audio Background
You address the darkness itself.
Watch your words, whelp.
The Nexus is a conflux of power, but what purpose does it serve, and more importantly, how can it be made to serve me?
Does anyone know when these spikes grew out of my back? You would think I would remember something like that.
I'll have you know death knights were my idea first. And for the record, most of Ner'zhul's aren't even dead. It's complete lunacy. Warcraft II's Death Knights were formed from the corpses of knights killed during the first war. Warcraft III's Death Knights were primarily Paladins that simply had their souls corrupted to serve the Lich King. Ironically, in World of Warcraft and other Warcraft books and media, there are many cases of Death Knights being those reborn from the dead.
Do not test me mortal. I've more power in my skull than you do in your entire body. Heh, just ask Illidan.
A true warlock doesn't need to summon infernal horrors, when they are the infernal horror. Warlock was the hero in the original Warcraft III DOTA that used the Stormreaver Necrolyte's model, which was shared by Gul'dan. For his ultimate, Warlock would summon Infernals to aid him.
Poke not the Darkness, lest the Darkness poke you.
You're saying.. there's an alternate timeline version of me loose upon the Cosmos? (laughs) You are all so very doomed. They don't even know what to do with just one of me! When Garrosh went back into time to save his father and prevent the orcs from drinking Mannoroth's blood, he ended up creating a completely different timeline. Additionally, the Warcraft movie's universe is separate from the one in the games.
I once was the head of a secretive council the controlled the Orcish Horde from the shadows. I called it... the Shadow Council. Shut up, naming things is hard!
When the warlock clans first began their training, their primitive incantations could barely summon spiders. Summoning a demon, pfft, was merely a dream. Warcraft I's warlock needed a Minor Summoning upgrade in order to know how to summon spiders which could be unlocked early into the orc campaign. Much later on, it became possible for a warlock to have the Major Summoning upgrade which would allow them to summon demons.
And back then 'daemon' had an 'a' in it. Like I intended! It looks more mystical that way. Both Warcraft I and Warcraft II held a few spelling changes to try and add a more fantasy feel. Aside from daemon, there would also be magik.
Those with power must wield it without fear. And if that power allows you to cast fear upon others, well that's a nice bonus.
I am Darkness Incarnate, soon you shall all– (phone ringtone plays) – Always the worst timing, I'm so sorry. Hold on. (answers phone) Who is this? Darkness who? Oh. Uh huh. Mm. Okay. I'm being sued for trademark infringement. Now that's evil.
The Hand of Gul'dan is a monument of fire and fury, a symbol of the Horde's eternal allegiance to the Fel! And it is also the name of a spell. What did I say about naming things?!
Don't let others fool you. It is much easier being green. In fact, (drink bubbles) why don't we talk about it over a drink? (laughs maniacally)
