Interactions[edit | edit source]

Hero Quote Audio Background
Emoji Varian Pack 1 Varian Happy.png

Alliance Hero

  • Sapper Junkrat: Oh man, the Alliance. Fine! But I'm charging double.
  • Alliance hero <hero dependent>
Most goblins are happy to remain neutral and conduct equal trade with both the Alliance and the Horde, but goblins have traditionally had stronger ties to the Horde than to the Alliance.[1]
  • Alliance hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Yeah, yeah... typical Alliance stuff. Ey, I'm gonna go blow things up, okay?
Emoji Arthas Pack 1 Arthas Meh.png


  • Sapper Junkrat: Oh man, you look crazy familiar. You from Undercity?
  • Arthas: Bow before your king!
The Undercity is a subterranean city built in the sewers and catacombs beneath Lordaeron. Arthas originally ruled the place before Sylvanas took over. Since the current inhabitants of the Undercity and Arthas' minions are both undead, this is presumably why Sapper Junkrat mistakes Arthas as being from the Undercity.[1]
  • Arthas: You...
  • Sapper Junkrat: I'm a goblin engineer, pal. I've got unlimited power covered, okay?
Emoji Johanna Pack 1 Johanna Meh.png

Johanna with

Warsong skin

  • Sapper Junkrat: Ladies first!
  • Warsong Johanna: Are you kidding me? I will bash your face in, you know that, right?
  • Warsong Johanna: Stay behind me and blow up anything that gets in our way!
  • Sapper Junkrat: That's... the coolest thing anyone's ever said to me.
Emoji E.T.C. Pack 1 E.T.C. Happy.png


  • Sapper Junkrat: You rock it, I'll rocket! ..Ehh?
  • E.T.C.: Rock on!
Callback to Junkrat's quote "You hook 'em, I'll cook 'em!", which he uses in interactions with his crime partner Roadhog in Overwatch and with Stitches in Heroes of the Storm.[1]
  • E.T.C.: Time to put on a show!
  • Sapper Junkrat: Uh, right behind ya, big guy!
Emoji Gazlowe Pack 1 Gazlowe Happy.png


  • Sapper Junkrat: Hey, boss! Can't believe I get to fight beside the man himself!
  • Gazlowe: Yeah, yeah, sure, I'll, uh... I'll be seeing you around. You get it, huh? 'Cause you're gonna explode! Oh, man. Oh, I kill myself.
Gazlowe is probably one of the most well-known goblins on Azeroth. While he is a prominent member of the neutral Steamwheedle Cartel and the boss of the port town of Ratchet, he has a pretty clear bias towards the Horde, and his most notable accomplishments include overseeing the construction of the Horde capital city of Orgrimmar, helping the tauren leader Baine Bloodhoof retake the tauren city of Thunder Bluff from the traitorous Grimtotem tribe, and serving as the architect for the Horde garrison of Frostwall on Draenor.[1]
  • Gazlowe: (laughs) Dead man walking!
  • Sapper Junkrat: Clever! That's why you're the boss. (fake laughs)
Emoji Greymane Pack 1 Greymane Happy.png


  • Sapper Junkrat: Hey, one of them dogmen! Neat.
  • Greymane: Do not test my patience!
  • Greymane: Allies like you make me want to stand alone.
  • Sapper Junkrat: Could still be arranged you know.
Emoji Garrosh Pack 1 Garrosh Happy.png

Horde hero

  • Sapper Junkrat: See, now these are the kinds of allies that make sense.
  • Horde hero: <hero dependent>
Though some goblins have worked with the Alliance, goblins have traditionally had stronger ties to the Horde.
  • Horde hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: For the Horde! Ehh?
Emoji Kel'Thuzad Pack 1 Kel'Thuzad Happy.png


  • Kel'Thuzad: You? (maniacally laughs)
  • Sapper Junkrat: (fake laughs then sighs) Tall people are jerks.
Emoji Thrall Pack 1 Thrall Happy.png


  • Sapper Junkrat: Whoa, Thrall!? This is nuts, I'm fighting next to a legend!
  • Thrall: Fight for the glory of the Horde.
Thrall is one of the most famous individuals on Azeroth, being the founder of the modern incarnation of the Horde, who rose to liberate the orcs from human captivity, lead them to a new homeland in Kalimdor, and played vital roles in defeating the Burning Legion during the Third War, and killing the mad dragon Deathwing during the Cataclysm. He is respected by many, not just within his own faction, but in the Alliance and other organizations as well.[1]
  • Thrall: Fight on, my warriors. They cannot stop the Horde!
  • Sapper Junkrat: You were always my favorite warchief. J– Just sayin'.
A number of World of Warcraft players consider Thrall their favorite warchief of the modern-day Horde, as his successors have either been warmongering tyrants (Garrosh), dark schemers mistrusted by their own faction (Sylvanas), or decent leaders who were killed off by Blizzard before they had a chance to accomplish anything (Vol'jin).[1]
Emoji Zul'jin Pack 1 Zul'jin Happy.png

Warcraft 2 Hero

  • Sapper Junkrat: Ey, it's you! You got old...
  • Warcraft 2 Hero: <hero dependent>
The goblin race, and by extension goblin sappers, were first introduced to the series in Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. The Second War is the lore name for the conflict that took place during the events of Warcraft 2.[1]
  • Warcraft 2 Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Yeah, sorry, Second War was a long time ago. So, you know, I...
Emoji Whitemane Pack 1 Whitemane ROFL.png


  • Whitemane: An ally of inferior worth, I see.
  • Sapper Junkrat: You are the worst kind of human, you know that?
Emoji Yrel Pack 1 Yrel Happy.png


  • Yrel: Are you willing to put aside your difference with the Alliance and partner with a draenei?
  • Sapper Junkrat: This... is why no one likes the Alliance. Can we just fight these guys?
Emoji Junkrat Pack 1 Junkrat Happy.png


  • Sapper Junkrat: Ready to blow things up?
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: You ready?
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Lemme check one thing... Okay, good to go!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Let's do this!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Count on it, boss!
Emoji Junkrat Pack 1 Junkrat ROFL.png



  • Sapper Junkrat: Ey, my kind of ally!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Aren't you, uh, someone important or something?
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: This'll be a blast!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Yes, that's great! Let's do that!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: I am gonna blow up so much stuff! (laughs)
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: As long as something explodes, I'm good!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Only if I want to... Okay, I want to! I want to!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Ain't no one stopping us. And if they try, we blow 'em to pieces!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Leave no traces, only craters!
Emoji Junkrat Pack 1 Junkrat Meh.png



  • Sapper Junkrat: Ugh. What? That's it. Just.. ugh!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Not listening! Thinkin' about explosions... and you.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Yeah, mhm. I'm not mad. Nope. Not bottling things up inside.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Nope. Not something I care about.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: (coughs)Go eat a grenade.(coughs)
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Sapper Junkrat: Okay, sure, whatever.

Eliminations[edit | edit source]

Hero Quote Audio Background
vs. Alliance hero Hah, classic!
Lousy Alliance!
vs. Skeleton hero Hoo! Look at them bones fly!
vs. E.T.C. Killed an Elite. No loot. Typical. E.T.C. is short for Elite Tauren Chieftain. Mobs that are considered "elite" in WoW are considerably tougher and more dangerous than non-elite mobs of the same level, and can thus often drop better loot than regular mobs.[1]
vs. Gazlowe Uhh, sorry, boss!
vs. Genji Impressive engineering! Not good enough, but still... nice. Genji was rebuilt as a cyborg by Overwatch. As an engineer himself, Sapper Junkrat recognizes and appreciates the advanced technology used to make Genji what he is today.[1]
vs. Horde Sorry, gotta go where the money is! Though the Steamwheedle Cartel allied with the Horde during the Second War, they later reverted to being neutral and trading with both Alliance and Horde since that turned out to be more profitable. However, the Bilgewater Cartel did later join the Horde and remains part of it to this day.[1]
vs. Junkrat Wow, that guy was imbalanced. Possibly a jab on how Junkrat limps with his prosthetic pegleg.
vs. Warchief Oh man,, I just killed a Warchief. I'm in trouble. The Heroes in the Nexus that have been Warchiefs are Thrall, Garrosh and Sylvanas.
vs. Weird hero Whatever that was, it blew up real good!
vs. Zarya Grab that particle cannon! Oh... it's gone. Refers to Zarya's weapon, which despawns along with her corpse when she's killed.[1]
vs. hero with kill streak Blasted that killing spree apart!
Generic Goodnight. (laughs) Sapper quote from Warcraft 2.[1]
Boom goes the seaforium! Seaforium is a powerful explosive material used throughout World of Warcraft in everything from bombs to rocket fuel. Its name is a pretty clear reference to the real-world explosive C-4.[1]
Look at all the little parts!
Well, that's fun!

Click-quotes[edit | edit source]

Quotes marked "Click-Quotes" are triggered when the player repeatedly clicks on the hero with the Left mouse button.

Quote Audio Background
What? Quotes from the goblin sapper unit in Warcraft II.[1]
Who is it?
I've got what you need. As long as what you need, is a lot of explosives.
Finally got my goblin engineering card last week, my mom was so proud. What? What do you mean it's useless? (frustrated scream) When players with the Engineering profession in WoW chose to pursue goblin engineering, they used to receive a Goblin Engineer Membership Card, which was necessary in order to be able to purchase unique crafting recipes from engineering trainers. However, the card was removed in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion many years ago, and any existing cards still in players' possession have become worthless.[1]
That's it! I'm filing a complaint with Roxxik at the guild about this. <beat> It's dynamite... the complaint is dynamite. That should be obvious.
Back in the day, I had these two friends. We were inseparable. Whatever happened to those guys? Ohhh, right. (Makes explosion sounds with his mouth) In Warcraft 2 and 3, goblin sappers always consist of teams of three goblins working in unison. In World of Warcraft, however, sappers are usually seen as single goblins working separately, and of course, Sapper Junkrat is all by himself.[1]
Sapper? I hardly know her! ...Yeah, yeah, I'll see myself out. A variation on the old "X? I hardly know her!" joke, where "X" is any word that ends in "-er", creating a sentence that can often be interpreted as a sexual innuendo.[1]
Everyone's always concerned with the blast radius. I care more about the blast circumference.
One rat's junk is another rat's robotic exo-skeleton. My mom taught me that. (sentimental)I love you, mom!
You hear about the goblin movie? It was a real box-office bomb. I mean that literally, the box office was a bomb. All that burnt popcorn. Sheesh.
Goblin Law of Engineering number twenty-seven: Never build a bomb that you can't run away from.
Goblin Law of Engineering number twenty-seven point five: If you can't run away, give it to someone you hate.
Have you seen those treasure goblins running around? That... is an offensive stereotype. Goblins are not just obsessed with money, okay? We're also obsessed with explosives. Treasure goblins are diminutive, treasure-obsessed demons from the Diablo universe first introduced in Diablo III, where they can be attacked for large amounts of loot before they open a portal back to their home realm. Warcraft goblins are mostly known for their love of money and their love for explosive engineering, but treasure goblins are really only interested in the former.[1]
By the way, goblin sappers don't deal "random damage". We deal consistent damage, randomly. A reference to the Mad Bomber and Madder Bomber cards in Hearthstone, which deal damage to random targets.
(lights a fuse) You ever been fishing with a goblin? (throws something into the water followed by an explosion) Yeah, me neither.

Commands[edit | edit source]

Command Quote Audio Background
Move Yeah, yeah.
Off I go! Sapper quote from Warcraft 3.[1]
Sounds good!
Certainly. Sapper quote from Warcraft 2.[1]
Go, robo-legs!
Top speed!
Why did I give this thing a peg leg?
I'm on the job!
Yes, boss. Sapper quote from Warcraft 2.[1]
Attack Alright.
(laughs then snorts)
Here comes the boom!
I come in peace! Sapper quote from Warcraft 3.
Delivery for... Rizzim... flizzim... References to the recurring "Landshark" sketch from Saturday Night Live. Also callbacks to similar quotes used by goblin sappers in Warcraft 3.[1]
Big money, no whammies!
You get a grenade, and you get a grenade! A reference to Oprah's famous 'You get a car, you get a car!' line which fits Sapper Junkrat's generosity in handing out explosives.
Not Enough


Running dry!
Out of ammo? (angrily groans)
Can't, I gotta reload!

Hey, feelin' fine!
You... are one handy pal!
Hearthing Got, uh, things to do.
Uhh, be right back!
Respawn I'm back? Well, that's new! Sappers are usually suicide bombers that have a 'one-time' use in combat, and do not respawn, unlike in the Nexus.
Who or what to explode next?
(coughs) Got the Black Lung now. In real life, Black Lung refers to a build up of inhaled coal dust in the lungs, or Coal workers' pneumoconiosis.
Did the jumper cables work? No? Okay. Goblin jumper cables are a device that can be crafted by engineers in WoW. When used, they have a 33% chance of shocking a dead ally back to life (and a 66% chance of failing horribly).[1]
Resurrected Oh, thanks for the jump!
Eh. Good looking out.
Taunting What's the matter? Chicken?
C'mere. I just want to give you a hug!
Talent chosen Oh... yeah... shiny new toys!
Okay, sure, fine, whatever.
I like it, I like it! Sapper quote from Warcraft 3 ("We like it, we like it!").
Packs a punch!
Yeah, baby!
Worth It

(Getting a kill

after getting killed)

Who's ya daddy? In Warcraft 3, "WhosYourDaddy" was a cheat-code which made the player's units unkillable and let them perform one-hit kills.
Boom, baby!

The failure detection pylon worked! That's new. A 'failure detection pylon' is an engineered item in World of Warcraft that resurrects nearby allies if they die shortly after the pylon is deployed. Though engineering items are notoriously unreliable, the pylon is interestingly not one of the items that can fail in the game, despite what Junkrat's quote implies.
