Default Come to Mama
Gem.png75 / Shard.png40 Fury of the Swarm One of Zagara's attack quotes in Heart of the Swarm.
Just as I Envisioned Part of Zagara's plot in Heart of the Swarm was Kerrigan teaching her vision, or the ability to look at the larger picture for the benefit of the Swarm past the current conflict.
Now You Die! "Die!" is one of Zagara's attack quotes in Heart of the Swarm.
The Swarm Endures "The Swarm prevails!" is one of Zagara's build quotes in Heart of the Swarm.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

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


  • Zagara: Do not fail me, Evolution Master.
  • Abathur: Organism Abathur will not fail. Victory assured.
Abathur is the Evolution Master of the Zerg Swarm, in charge of its evolution, and helped design and create Zagara and her fellow broodmothers, as well as modified her to have her better command the Swarms. After Kerrigan left the Swarm, Zagara took command over Abathur, though he would later attempt a coup against her.
  • Abathur: Creature recognized. Good sequences. Survival likely.
  • Zagara: Our time has come, Abathur. For the Swarm!
Emoji Anub'arak Pack 1 Anub'arak Happy.png


  • Zagara: You know, you would make a powerful addition to my Swarm.
  • Anub'arak: I am already shackled to the will of a monarch. I have no need for another.
Anub'arak is bound to the will of the Lich King and serves the Scourge.
  • Anub'arak: Nice legs.
  • Zagara: Creep.
A reference to the Love is in the Air promotional video, which implied Zagara and Anub'arak started a romantic relationship. Creep is the substance that zerg structures are built on and that Zagara spreads.
Emoji Kerrigan Pack 1 Kerrigan Happy.png


  • Zagara: My queen.
  • Kerrigan: Remember what I taught you about vision? Time to put it to practice.
In the Char arc of Heart of the Swarm, Kerrigan subjugates Zagara and teaches her vision, seeing beyond the current conflict to view the bigger picture.
  • Kerrigan: Zagara. There's no one I'd rather have as my second.
  • Zagara: Undoubtedly.
Kerrigan created Zagara and the broodmothers to be the subleaders of the Swarm, carrying out her will to the many broods. Zagara was the chief among them, and Kerrigan gave the Swarm to her after she left the Swarm.
Emoji Murky Pack 1 Murky Happy.png


  • Zagara: Well, you're a curious creature.
  • Murky: <Response indicating he is excited and ready to fight>
  • Murky <Playfully questioning to the person next to him>
  • Zagara: What did you just say to me?
Zagara communicates psionically, so she can understand Murky's speech patterns.

Eliminations[edit | edit source]

Hero Quote Audio Background
vs. Abathur Your place is the evolution pit, not the battlefield. Abathur largely stays in the evolution pit, evolving the Swarm away from the field of battle rather than getting into conflict.
vs. Demon Hmm, such a strong essence. Abathur should examine this. Essence is genetic material, which Abathur uses to incorporate into the Swarm.
vs. Kerrigan Now I am the heart of the Swarm. Kerrigan was the leader of the Swarm, with Zagara being her second-in-command. When Kerrigan left the Swarm, she gave dominion over it to Zagara. Also a pun on the zerg expansion of StarCraft II, Heart of the Swarm.
vs. Protoss hero How I love hearing the snap of protoss bones! When Zagara meets the captive Lassara on Kaldir, Zagara says "I have always wished to feel protoss bones snapping in my claws."
vs. Terran hero Useless terran! Zagara looks down on the terrans, underestimating them on Char when her brood is pushed back by General Horace Warfield.
vs. enemy Zagara I am the first among the broodmothers! Zagara is the highest ranking broodmother, first serving as Kerrigan's second-in-command, then becoming Overqueen of the Swarms and head of the broodmothers.
vs. hero with kill streak Your time is over.
Generic Fall before the Swarm.
Feeble creature.
Soft and weak.
You had no hope.
I stand triumphant.

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
My brood stands ready.
The Swarm hungers. One of Zagara's select quotes in Heart of the Swarm.
Shouldn't you be spawning more overlords? When a zerg player runs out of supply in the StarCraft series, they need to create overlords to gain more. In StarCraft II, the default zerg announcer voice is that of a queen that sounds like Zagara.
I'm a killer queen. A reference to the song “Killer Queen” by Queen. Broodmothers are a strain of queen. Also used one of Zagara’s poke quotes in StarCraft II.
Fat bottomed zerg make the rockin' world go round. A reference to the song “Fat Bottomed Girls” by Queen, and a poke at the queen’s larger abdomen.
It's not a tumor! Wait, that actually is a creep tumor. Nevermind. A reference to the Arnold Schwarzenegger film “Kindergarten Cop” and the line “It’s not a toomah!”
God save the Queen! Everyone else can die... An old saying regarding the British monarchy is “God save the queen!” After Kerrigan the zerg were ruled by various queens, be it the Queen of Blades or Broodmothers. They don’t have much care for the lives of their enemies or their own forces.
It's difficult being a single broodmother with 4.5 million zerg to feed. A joke at the single mother lifestyle. Zerg broods are large, some reaching as high as the billions.
Always the broodsmaid, never the bride! A joke at the old saying “always the bridesmaid never the bride.” May be a poke at the fact Zagara wasn’t the center of attention until after this quote was made and Kerrigan left the Swarm.
Once I am the Queen of Blades I won't have to take this from you. While she never became the Queen of Blades (because that’s a title for Kerrigan not a rank), Zagara became Overqueen, ruler of the Swarm.
Four years old and already a broodmother. I hope my broodfather doesn't find out about this. While we don’t know when Zagara was born canonically, this roughly dates her creation to around 2501, one year after Brood War. Many zerg made during the reign of Kerrigan were relatively young, as all but the most evolved strains don’t live long in the swarm.
(unintelligible zergy sounds) (clears throats) Sorry, I think my accent was coming through there. The actual queen unit in StarCraft II doesn’t actually speak, but makes noises similar to the noises Zagara makes here. While some regular queens seem to be able to communicate, sentient zerg command strains don’t actually “speak” but plant a statement or concept in a target’s mind psionically, similar to the protoss.
What do you think you're doing? Turn your head! Don't you know it's rude to watch a Queen inject her larva? In StarCraft II, one of the main roles of the queen is to inject larva into a hatchery, which creates eggs that after a short time will create a group of four larva. This is one of the main mechanics of zerg that makes sure they can always have an army up and ready.
Does anybody else feel a little... top-heavy? A reference to the massive head head Zagara has. This is actually a toned down version of her unit from StarCraft II, which has a bigger head, similar to her Overqueen skin. This is also one of her poke quotes in StarCraft II.
Just give me some time, and I'll worm my way into your pathetic terran heart. This could be a twofold reference, the obvious one being that zerg can use nydus worms to bypass enemies and defenses and push through forces. This could also be a reference to the fact queens used to be able to infest terrans.

Viewed in shop Locked Speak, terran. In the StarCraft universe, humans are referred to as terrans, as they are from Terra.
Owned How may I assist you?
Waiting Locked You test my patience.
This time would be better spent on the field of battle.
Owned I see no purpose behind your inaction. Perhaps you lack vision. In the Heart of the Swarm Char arc, Kerrigan teaches Zagara vision, or planning for the greater picture rather than for a single battle.
My claws yearn to snap the bones of our enemy. Shall we begin? When Zagara meets the captive Lassara on Kaldir, Zagara says "I have always wished to feel protoss bones snapping in my claws."
Purchased The Swarm hears your command.
