Emoji Artanis Pack 1 Artanis Happy.png

Artanis with

Shogun skin

  • Samuro: Ah, a shogun who joins the battle himself! All leaders should be so bold.
  • Shogun Artanis: The enemy will fall before our onslaught!
  • Shogun Artanis: I am pleased to fight alongside a warrior like you.
  • Samuro: This humble warrior is honored to fight alongside a shogun.
Emoji Chen Pack 1 Chen Happy.png

  • Chen: Blademaster! It is good to fight with you once more!
  • Samuro: And to the same to you, brewmaster. I look forward to seeing your technique once more.

Emoji Azmodan Pack 2 Azmodan Angry.png

Demon hero

  • Samuro: Your presence brings us disgrace. Keep your distance or my blade will keep it for you!
  • Demon hero: <hero dependent>
Many members of the Burning Blade clan, where many other Orc Blademasters originated from, have remained loyal to the demons. Samuro is one of the few that have joined Thrall's Horde to free other Orcs from the influence of demons.
  • Demon hero: <hero dependent>
  • Samuro: Make no mistake, demon. I would never rely on the strength of your kind.
Emoji Gul'dan Pack 1 Gul'dan Happy.png


  • Samuro:  Your demon worshiping ruined our people and dishonored my clan. I should cut off your head here and now!
  • Gul'dan: I have the power to bring us victory. What would you give to have it?
Gul'dan originally brought together multiple orc leaders, including the warchief of the Burning Blade clan, to drink Mannoroth's blood and give them all both insatiable bloodlust and power but also submission to the demons.
  • Gul'dan: You served me once, do so again!
  • Samuro: Never! I will redeem the Burning Blade and break the chains you put upon us!
Emoji Kharazim Pack 1 Kharazim Happy.png


  • Samuro:  Ah, a kindred spirit. I look forward to fighting next to you.
  • Kharazim: This realm has need of warriors like us.
  • Kharazim: Ah, the gods favor me with your presence.
  • Samuro: And the spirits bring me honor with yours.

The Lost Vikings

  • Samuro:  Not all who wander are lost, my friends.
  • Erik: We just want to go home.
  • Olaf: Oh no, it's T-T-Tomator!
  • Samuro: This... 'Tomator' must be a great warrior.
Emoji Medivh Pack 1 Medivh Happy.png


  • Samuro: My clan was reduced to demon worshippers because of you!
  • Medivh: I know, I have made mistakes in the past. I am here to correct them.
Medivh and Gul'dan were allied during the First War. Aside from helping the orcs get into Azeroth, Medivh was partially responsible for Gul'dan's close relationship with demons.
  • Medivh: Your people were noble once. Are you ready to prove that they are once again?
  • Samuro: I prove it with every breath, thought, and action.
Emoji Murky Pack 1 Murky Happy.png


  • Samuro: I sense a fire within you, little one. Let it burn!

  • Murky: <Playfully questioning the hero next to him>
  • Samuro: Hmm, your words are muddled but your desire vengeance is clear!
Emoji Rexxar Pack 1 Rexxar Happy.png


Samuro and Rexxar worked together during the second chapter of The Founding of Durotar.

Quote Audio Background
I am yours. Blademaster select quote from Warcraft III.
What task is there? Blademaster select quote from Warcraft III.
If on my journey, I should encounter the titans, then the titans shall be cut. Based on a quote from Hattori Hanzo from Kill Bill: Volume 1 where he states, "If, on your journey, you should encounter God, God will be cut."
If the warchief wishes my death, he has but to ask.
Blademaster training is simple, yet effective: one hundred cuts, one hundred stabs, one hundred parries, ten miles of wandering. Every single day!
Who's the meanest, the leanest, the greenest blademaster down in the Nexus? Samuro, the Shogun of Orgrimmar!
I try not to be angry. But sometimes, I'm just beside myselves. (laughs)
Years ago, six other blademasters and I banded together and taught a mag'har village how to defend itself against forty ogre bandits. It was a long battle, but it was the finest that Draenor had ever seen. A reference to the classic film Seven Samurai, where seven samurai protect a village from an army of bandits.
It is not easy to wield a burning blade. For many, they are too hot to handle.
A true master of combat enters a state of "no mind" in battle. To react with speed and power, you must first empty your mind of all thoughts. So... you are already halfway there.
My best sparring matches are against my own mirror images. I call them "Samuro Showdown". "Samuro Showdown" is based on the real life video game series named Samurai Shodown.
The most skilled blademaster I have ever met was a blind orc who hid his blade within a cane. The next... uh... was dressed as a rabbit.
This is the weapon of a blademaster. Not as random or clumsy as an axe; it is an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. The weapon of orcish grunts throughout the first three Warcraft games were hand axes. It is also a reference to Star Wars IV: A New Hope when Obi-Wan Kenobi explains Luke Skywalker what is a lightsaber.
The Burning Blade clan takes its name from an annual festival held in the middle of Hellfire Peninsula. I used to go every year, but now it has become WAY too commercialized.
No, "dude." I cannot get you backstage passes! I am Samuro! Not Samuro. Go ask E.T.C. himself then.
