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

Artanis

  • Raynor: How's my favorite hierarch doing?
  • Artanis: Lost in the Nexus, and on the verge of battle. But otherwise, acceptable.
Raynor and Artanis fought together during the Great War, Brood War and End War as allies, with Raynor serving to bridge the gap between the protoss and terrans, being referred to by them as "Friend Raynor."
  • Artanis: It is good to fight by your side once more, friend Raynor.
  • Raynor: You know it, man.
Emoji Tychus Pack 1 Tychus Meh.png

Tychus with

Infested skin

  • Raynor: Tychus? What happened to ya?
  • Infested Tychus: Yeah, betrayed me then, too.
After Tychus revealed he was working for Arcturus Mengsk and tried to kill Kerrigan, Raynor killed him. Infested Tychus is Tychus after he was killed by Raynor. This quote likely a response to Raynor's default "Just like old times, eh, Tychus?" response to Tychus
  • Infested Tychus: It's just like old times, isn't it, Jimmy?
  • Raynor: Yeah... not quite.
Tychus, being infested and now one of the zerg, is different from his old friend.
Emoji Kerrigan Pack 1 Kerrigan Happy.png

Kerrigan

  • Raynor: You up for this, darlin'?
  • Kerrigan: You know it.
Raynor and Kerrigan were romantically together, and even after her infestation Raynor still cared for her. The Kerrigan that appears in Heroes of the Storm is Kerrigan after Raynor initially purged her of zerg mutagen, and after she proved to Raynor she is no longer the murderess of old.
  • Kerrigan: You up for this, cowboy?
  • Raynor: Always.
The inflection of which Raynor says "always" seems to be a callback to his response to Kerrigan in Brood War when she asked "still suspicious of my motives, Jimmy?"
Emoji Murky Pack 1 Murky Happy.png

Murky

  • Raynor: Now, what the hell are you supposed to be?
  • Murky: <Response indicating he is excited and ready to fight>
  • Murky: <Playfully questioning the person next to him>
  • Raynor: I don't know if I need you to speak slower or faster 'cause I have no idea what that means.
Emoji Nova Pack 1 Nova Happy.png

Nova

  • Raynor: You ready for this, blondie?
  • Nova: More than you are, marshal.
Raynor was the former marshal of the Terran Confederacy colony of Mar Sara
  • Nova: Well, well, well. James Raynor.
  • Raynor:  Do me a favor, don't shoot me this time.
During the Heart of the Swarm mission "Back in the Saddle," Nova is ordered to capture Raynor and Kerrigan, and she corners Raynor and puts a bullet through his visor. He survives the shot and is instead captured.
Emoji Tychus Pack 1 Tychus Happy.png

Tychus

  • Raynor: Just like old times, eh, Tychus?
  • Tychus: Yep, just like old times.
A callback to Raynor and Tychus's reunion before the Wings of Liberty mission "The Outlaws," when Raynor and Tychus toast to the same dialogue exchange. Raynor and Tychus served together as marines during the Guild Wars, and after going AWOL became a notorious bandit duo.
  • Tychus: Just like old times, eh, partner?
  • Raynor:  Like old times.
Emoji Zeratul Pack 1 Zeratul Happy.png

Zeratul

  • Raynor: Feels like old times already.
  • Zeratul: Indeed. Perhaps, too much like them.
Raynor and Zeratul fought together during the Great War and Brood War, both surviving on the planet Char along with Tassadar and bridging the gap between three people. When Zeratul uncovered a xel'naga prophecy involving Kerrigan, he turned to Raynor to help him prevent armageddon.
  • Zeratul: Friend Raynor, we have not fought together since the Great War.
  • Raynor:  Man, I miss that vulture.
The Great War is the conflict of the first StarCraft game, prior to the expansion. In a nod to canon, Raynor and Zeratul did not fight alongside one another during the Brood War, the conflict of the expansion, past its very initial stages. In these games Raynor's unit was most often portrayed as a hero vulture unit, which became absent in StarCraft II.

"This should be good" is a move quote for Raynor in StarCraft and StarCraft II.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Raynor: (laughs) Hell yeah.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Raynor: You sold me.
"Sell me" is a select quote for Raynor in StarCraft II.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Raynor: Let's make these guys sorry they showed up.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Raynor: Time to show these bastards the door.

(Negative)

  • Raynor: Can't say I'm happy fighting beside you.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Raynor: Let's just get this over with.
"Let's get this over with" was a dismissal of Raynor before rescuing Edmund Duke in the StarCraft mission Norad II, and in Wings of Liberty before the mission Maw of the Void.

Eliminations[edit | edit source]

Hero Quote Audio Background
vs. Samuro Never bring a blade to a gunfight.
vs. Diablo Well, that's another one for me, red. A reference to the old Heroes of the Storm introduction, with Raynor and Uther fought against Diablo, and Raynor would call him "red."
vs. Kerrigan Dammit, Sarah. Didn't have to be like this. Raynor and Kerrigan were lovers torn apart by the betrayal of Arcturus Mengsk and her infestation by the zerg. However, he was able to purge her of infestation, and though she became infested again as a primal zerg, she was able to probe to him she wasn't the same murderess, and the two resparked their love.
vs. Nova That's for shooting me in the head. During the Heart of the Swarm mission "Back in the Saddle," Nova is ordered to capture Raynor and Kerrigan, and she corners Raynor and puts a bullet through his visor. He survives the shot and is instead captured.
vs. Tychus How many times I gotta kick your ass, Tychus? During the Wings of Libery cutscene "Bar Fight," Raynor and a drunk Tychus fight in a bar after Tychus disagrees with Raynor's decision to invade Char to cure Kerrigan. The fight ended with Raynor as a victor.
vs. hero with kill streak That was easy.
Generic Headshot! Raynor is a marksman himself, owning a HEV sniper rifle.
My condolences.
You gotta be faster than that.
Tough break, kid.
(laughs) Yeah, right between the eyes! One of Raynor's attack quotes from StarCraft II.

Quote Audio Background
This is Jimmy. One of Raynor's select quotes from StarCraft.
Alright, sell me. One of Raynor's select quotes from StarCraft II.
Don't mess with Mar Sara. After being given a second chance for his life of crime, Raynor became marshal of the Mar Sara colony, a Fringe World on the borders of Terran Confederacy space. Also a reference to the saying "don't mess with Texas."
Yipee-ki-yay. One of Raynor's poke quotes in StarCraft II." Also a quote from the 1988 film Die Hard.
I never look for trouble but it always seems to find me, usually in a bar. Raynor drinks heavily, which featured in Wings of Liberty, as the StarCraft II series starts and ends with him in a bar. Likely a reference to the beginning of Wings of Liberty where Tychus visits him in a bar to offer him a job, setting off the events of the game.
It's funny, I ain't been a marshal for years but I always feel like there's a magistrate looking over my shoulder. The Magistrate was the player character of the first terran campaign of StarCraft. This is a joke that though it's been years since then, he's still controlled by a player character.
We – (laughs) – ell, whoo, what is it about girls with dreads? Kerrigan's bone-spiked hair is similar to dreadlocks, something Kerrigan retains after being initially uninfested. Some have interpreted Kerrigan's portrait in StarCraft to have dreadlocks as well, and this featured in very early concept art for the game, but other art later into the game's development show her with straight hair.
I find that whenever I’ve got a split decision in my life, the first option is usually the canonically correct one. A reference to the split choice missions of Wing of Liberty. The "A choice" is considered by Blizzard Entertainment to be the canon option, which are helping Gabriel Tosh, saving the colony of Ariel Hanson, and collapsing the tunnels on Char.
Well, I’m bored. Who needs something kicked into overdrive? One of Raynor's first lines in Wings of Liberty is "'bout time we kick this revolution into overdrive."
When the goin’ gets tough, well, the tough call on the good old Hyperion and blast the hell out of everything! The Hyperion is Raynor's flagship that he stole from Arcturus Mengsk, then becoming the base of operations for Raynor's Raiders. It features through StarCraft and StarCraft II.
(ice cubes rattle) 'Scuse me, gettin’ a little dry over here.
So, you ever hear what happens when you play StarCraft backwards? I get my vulture back, I get my girl back, my planet isn’t glassed by the protoss, and things are peachy keen. During the events of the StarCraft games, Raynor's home of Mar Sara is purified by the protoss in the outbreak of the Great War
Starting to miss my jukebox. The Jukebox was an old Earth relic Raynor owned, and in Wings of Liberty it played music in the cantina of the Hyperion. Raynor loved jukeboxes, and as a bandit Raynor made a train robbery much more complicated in order to steal a jukebox (though it's unclear if it's the same one as in-game). Tychus smashed it in a bar fight with Raynor, and while it was fixed it never played the same again.
(jukebox plays) (sings along) Shotgun, Zerg, You I got a Zerg and a shotgun, and I’m bringing ‘em home to you. The song is "A Zerg, a Shotgun, and You" by White Boy James & The Blues Express. It is featured in-universe in Wings of Liberty as a song that can play on the jukebox in the cantina of the Hyperion.
(music playing) Hey, is that Liberty Rock? Yeah, well turn it up man! Radio Liberty is a pirate radio station that often supported Raynor during his revolution days, as Raynor was close friends with the man that inspired them, Michael Liberty.

One in the chamber.
(laughs) Fill 'em full of daylight!

Talent chosen Pumped up and good to go. "Jacked up and good to go" is a select quote of the marine unit in StarCraft.
Groovy.
I can dig that.
Now that'll do nicely.
Wonder if Swann could make me one of those. Rory Swann is the chief engineer of Raynor's Raiders, Raynor's rebel group, who builds and upgrades their weapons and vehicles.
Worth It

(Getting a kill

after getting killed)

(laughs) Now that's what I'm talking about!
Yeah, I'll take that.
