Blink SC2 CineProphecy1

Zeratul blinking

Blinking is a form of short-range teleportation.

Blink is an ability mastered by many dark templar, including Vorazun[1] and Zeratul.[2] Through augmentation, stalkers are able to blink. This improved mobility allows stalkers to conduct ambushes, catch fleeing foes, and generally engage on their own terms.[3] The hybrid destroyer Maar was also able to demonstrate this ability.[4]

During the End War, dark templar gained a greater understanding of the Void, allowing them to use an ability called shadow fury, which allowed them to blink multiple times, attacking all surrounding enemies.[5] Vorazun demonstrated an advanced version of blink named shadow dash.[1] During the conflict, stalkers' blink abilities were enhanced with the addition of phase reactors, which allowed them to regenerate shields when they blink.[5]

Tal'darim motherships have the ability to blink.[5]

Zeratul has the ability to use the Nerazim version of blink in Heroes of the Storm.[6]

TriviaEdit

Prior to StarCraft II, the warden hero of Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne used a teleportation ability, also called "Blink".

The shadow step ability from Blizzard's Overwatch setting bears resemblance to blink in both visuals and function.
