Interactions[edit | edit source]

Hero Quote Audio Background
Emoji Abathur Pack 1 Abathur Meh.png


  • Kerrigan: Abathur.
  • Abathur: For the Swarm.
Abathur is Kerrigan's evolution master, and was under her command when she ruled the Swarm, improving the zerg to become more deadly. Abathur was the one who designed Kerrigan when she was infested by the zerg.
  • Abathur: Organism Abathur. WIll serve Queen.
  • Kerrigan: Good.
Emoji Artanis Pack 1 Artanis Meh.png


  • Kerrigan: Artanis.
  • Artanis: We will settle this after the battle, abomination.
Artanis and Kerrigan fought through the many wars of the sector, with the zerg overrunning Aiur and driving his people off their world. After Kerrigan betrayed and killed Fenix, Raszagal and thousands of other protoss, Artanis attempted a retaliatory strike on her Swarm, which failed.
  • Artanis: I must ally with a Zerg!? (sigh) So be it.
  • Kerrigan: I am not your enemy, Artanis. Not for this fight, anyway.
Emoji D.Va Pack 1 D.Va Happy.png


  • D.Va: Kerrigan? You're real? I'm such a huge fan!
  • Kerrigan: Uh... thanks?
D.Va played StarCraft in her childhood, and knows of the game and its characters. Kerrigan is not aware of her universe as a game, and is not used to people being a "fan" of her, as she's regarded as a murderer of billions among most humans.
Emoji Dehaka Pack 1 Dehaka Meh.png


  • Kerrigan: This'll be just like the psi destroyer, split and conquer.
  • Dehaka: Yes. Always much essence when fighting with you.
During the final stages of the Second Great War, Kerrigan invaded Korhal to kill Arcturus Mengsk, when he deployed a device named the psi destroyer that could kill the zerg using their connection to the hive mind. As Dehaka was unattached to any hive mind, he and his primal zerg attacked the power links to the psi destroyer while Kerrigan lead a frontal assault.
  • Dehaka: Queen of Blades. Looking forward to fighting with you again
  • Kerrigan: Follow me, and the essence keeps flowing. Got it?
In Heart of the Swarm, Dehaka swore that he would follow Kerrigan as long as the essence flowed, and when it did not, he would leave.
Emoji Tychus Pack 1 Tychus Happy.png

Tychus with Infested skin

  • Kerrigan: You know who I am, yes? Good. Follow your queen!
  • Infested Tychus: I would rather die, than follow you.
Tychus was initially sent to kill Kerrigan, but was instead killed by Raynor. Infested Tychus is supposed to be Tychus after he was killed, and ironically now serves Kerrigan, the women he died trying to kill.
  • Infested Tychus: For the Swarm!
  • Kerrigan: No, for me!
Emoji Murky Pack 1 Murky Happy.png


  • Kerrigan: Cute. Where's my real ally?
  • Murky: <Response indicating he is excited and ready to fight>
  • Murky: <Playfully questioning the person next to him>
  • Kerrigan: I sense a lot of hatred in you for one so small.
Murky seeks revenge against adventurers for killing his family. As Kerrigan is psionic, she can read these emotions.
Emoji Nova Pack 1 Nova Meh.png


  • Kerrigan: Ready to watch a real assassin at work?
  • Nova: Whatever.
Kerrigan and Nova were both ghost agents, psionic supersoldiers, though Kerrigan was slightly more psionically powerful. Many fans have drawn comparisons between the two as they share similar appearances.
  • Nova: Kerrigan.
  • Kerrigan: That's me... and who are you again?
Emoji Raynor Pack 1 Raynor Happy.png


  • Kerrigan: You up for this, cowboy?
  • Raynor: Always.
Raynor and Kerrigan, during their time in the Sons of Korhal, fell in love, but Kerrigan was betrayed and left to the zerg, then infested. After she was purged of the zerg mutagen, she reverted back to her human personality, and even after becoming infested as a primal zerg she retained her humanity and love for Raynor.
  • Raynor: You up for this, darlin'?
  • Kerrigan: You know it.
Emoji Tassadar Pack 1 Tassadar Meh.png


  • Kerrigan: I am not your enemy, Tassadar. Things have changed.
  • Tassadar: Yes. You radiate a purple glow now, how very different.
After becoming infested as a primal zerg and rebuilt from the ground up into a completely new and more powerful creature, she was given the same model as the Queen of Blades, only purple colors. This has been an often mocked part of Kerrigan's kit.
  • Tassadar: It has been a long time, oh Queen of the Zerg.
  • Kerrigan: 15 years, at least.
A reference to Tassadar's first interaction with Kerrigan "I know you well oh Queen of the Zerg." Also points to the real world time gap between StarCraft and the release of Heroes of the Storm, fifteen years.
Emoji Tychus Pack 1 Tychus Meh.png


  • Kerrigan: Ugh, Tychus. I can't believe this.
  • Tychus: (laughs) Yeah, a little starstruck, huh? Don't worry, baby. Happens to the best of us.
Tychus in Heroes of the Storm is supposed to be Tychus before he was killed by Kerrigan at the end of Wings of Liberty, where Kerrigan remembers him trying to kill her.
  • Tychus: The Queen of Blades. Stuck with you, huh.
  • Kerrigan: Don't worry about it. You'll be left behind, soon enough.
After being shot and killed by Raynor after betraying him to try to kill Kerrigan, Tychus's corpse was abandoned on the floor of a Char hive, with Raynor refusing to have his risk their lives to carry the corpse of a traitor.
Emoji Zagara Pack 1 Zagara ROFL.png


  • Kerrigan: Zagara. There's no one I'd rather have as my second.
  • Zagara: Undoubtedly.
Zagara is Kerrigan's second-in-command, and a broodmother she modified to be the most cunning and have the greatest vision. After Kerrigan left the Swarm, Zagara took over.
  • Zagara: My queen.
  • Kerrigan: Remember what I taught you about vision? Time to put it to practice.
During the Char arc of Heart of the Swarm, Kerrigan gradually evolves Zagara to learn "vision," or thinking of the greater picture of a conflict beyond the current moment.
Emoji Zeratul Pack 1 Zeratul Meh.png


  • Kerrigan: Ready for some fun, Zeratul?
  • Zeratul: You and I interpret this 'fun' very differently.
Zeratul and Kerrigan have a history, as during the Brood War, Kerrigan manipulated Zeratul into doing her bidding twice, the final time resulting in him having to kill his ancient leader Raszagal in order to break Kerrigan's influence over her, a decision that scarred him for the rest of his life. Later, when he discovered Kerrigan was the key to defeating Amon, Zeratul was forced to manipulate events to assure her survival, much to his disdain.
  • Zeratul: Kerrigan. I hope your anger will not become a liability.
  • Kerrigan: Let your blade do the talking, Zeratul.
Emoji Stukov Pack 1 Stukov Silly.png

Zerg hero

  • Kerrigan: It's time. Come, follow your queen!
  • Zerg hero: <hero dependent>
After the death of the Overmind and a brief civil war among the broods, Kerrigan was the uncontested ruler of the Zerg Swarm.
  • Zerg hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: For the Swarm!
Emoji Kerrigan Pack 1 Kerrigan Happy.png


  • Kerrigan: Ready for a little action?
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: Are you ready? I tire of waiting!
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: I'm in.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: Let's go.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: Are you kidding me?
Emoji Kerrigan Pack 1 Kerrigan ROFL.png



  • Kerrigan: You, huh? This could be fun.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: Let's go tear them apart.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: Agreed.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: Sounds like fun.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: Let's do it.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: This realm will fall before us.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: My vengeance is at hand.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: Can't wait.
Emoji Kerrigan Pack 2 Kerrigan Angry.png



  • Kerrigan: Great. You.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: You know, I'd just hate it if you got in my way.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: You will regret that.
Said when Kerrigan is pushed back during the Wings of Liberty mission "All In."
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: Whatever.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Kerrigan: What a horrible thing to say. Kind of impressed, actually.

Eliminations[edit | edit source]

Hero Quote Audio Background
vs. Abathur Playtime's over, get back to work. Abathur was Kerrigan's servant, who never directly went into combat, rather manipulated the Swarm from his evolution pit. As such him being outside of it is "play time" to Kerrigan.
vs. Arthas What's up with all these bratty princes anyways? Kerrigan was forced to work with Prince Valerian Mengsk after her deinfestation in the Second Great War, a somewhat snobby noble who is similar in appearance to Arthas.
vs. enemy Kerrigan There can only be one. A reference to the 1986 film Highlander and its tagline.
vs. Leoric Take a rest, Leoric. Leoric is a tortured soul that constantly comes back from the dead.
vs. Nova Nice try, blondie. You're still second best. When Kerrigan was inducted to the Terran Confederacy Ghost Program, her psionic power was such they they had to adjust their psionic scale, with Kerrigan being a 10. Nova also reached the level of 10, but was still second to Kerrigan.
vs. Protoss Protoss. All talk. A common complaint by their enemies is the protoss do too much talking and not enough fighting.
vs. Raynor Weren't you supposed to kill me, Jim? After Kerrigan killed Fenix in the Brood War mission True Colors, Raynor promises "It may not be tomorrow darlin'. It may not even happen with an army at my back. But rest assured, I'm the man who's going to kill you someday."
vs. Sylvanas Long live the real queen. Sylvanas and Kerrigan were both forced against their will into a faction of mindless monsters, later seizing control of their respective factions.
vs. Terran hero Never cross the Queen of Blades. To the terrans, Kerrigan is known as a butcher of millions, and is feared across the Koprulu sector.
vs. Zeratul You never stood a chance, Zeratul. Zeratul and Kerrigan have fought one-on-one a number of times, with Kerrigan always besting him.
vs. Zerg hero How dare you disobey your queen! Kerrigan is the ruler of the Swarm, but many rogue broods, hive minds, and controlled zerg have risen to oppose her over the years.
vs. hero with kill streak That's why I'm the queen.
Generic Never cross the queen.
Did that hurt? Good.
Dying? Don't let me stop you.
A pointless display.
Tch, easier than expected.

Quote Audio Background
What is it? "What is it now" is a select quote for Infested Kerrigan in StarCraft and the terran queen Kerrigan in Heart of the Swarm.
I like you, that's why I'm going to kill you... last. One of Kerrigan's poke quotes from Wings of Liberty. Also a reference to a famous line from the 1985 movie "Commando."
It's not easy being queen. One of terran queen Kerrigan's poke quotes from Heart of the Swarm. Also a reference to the Kermit the Frog song "Bein' Green."
Yeah, I'm still the Queen Bitch of the Universe. One of Kerrigan's poke quotes from Wings of Liberty. Also a reference to the briefing of the Brood War mission Omega where Kerrigan declares "You see, at this point I'm pretty much the Queen Bitch of the Universe. And not all of your little soldiers and spaceships will stand in my way again."
Really? Are you staring at my thorax? The thorax is the midsection of an insect. This is a poke and Kerrigan's chitinous breasts.
Still easily amused, I see? A reference to the terran Kerrigan poke quote "easily amused, huh?"
Looks like those energy drinks actually do give you wings. A reference to the slogan of Red Bull "Red Bull gives you wings."
Wait, aren't I supposed to be human now? Make up your mind, Blizzard. Human, zerg, human, zerg. Pick one! Kerrigan started off as a human, but was infested and brought into the Zerg Swarm. When Raynor used a relic named the Keystone on her, Kerrigan was mostly reverted to human, and as the conflict wore on she reinfested herself as a primal zerg to get her revenge on Arcturus Mengsk. Later, she would ascend past that and become a xel'naga, with hints in the aftermath that she may have returned to fully human.
The worst part about having a hive mind is knowing exactly how many of your zerglings are licking themselves. At any. Given. Moment. Zerglings are the small hounds of war for the zerg, and often equated to dogs. Being the core hive mind of the zerg, Kerrigan can feel all the creatures under her.
Are we really supposed to believe that I evolved high heels? A common complaint about Kerrigan's design was that for a creature designed to be the perfect being, she was given long bone stiletto heels, considered to be rather impractical for combat.
Hell hath no fury like a woman swarmed. One of terran queen Kerrigan's poke quotes from Heart of the Swarm. Also a reference to the line "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned", paraphrased from the William Congreve's 1697 play The Mourning Bride.
It takes forever to comb your hair when it keeps fighting you. Literally. A reference to Kerrigan's bone medusa-like hair. Her similarity to medusa was enough to where StarCraft II's development name was "Medusa."
It's never wise to poke the hivemind.
Phenomenal psychic powers. Icky sticky living space! A reference to the Genie from the 1992 film Aladdin and his quote "phenomial magic power! Itty bitty living space."
You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. A quote from the Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Both the Borg and the zerg assimilate other species into their hive mind.
I'm a killer queen, guaranteed to blow your mind. A reference to the "Queen" song "Killer Queen."
