Psionic Speed is the ability to channel psionic energy into the body, increasing the user's speed and reflexes.[1] Some ghosts,[2] such as Nova,[3] are able to use this ability, though they require a hostile environment suit to do so.[1]

With special training, zealots can dramatically increase their speed, to the point that they may briefly transform into energy. Zealots use this ability to quickly approach opponents, spending less time being exposed to ranged attacks.[4]

Centurions posses a similar ability named shadow charge, that allows them to cloak while charging and phase through enemies. This in tandem with their darkcoil abilities allows them to charge and stun enemy lines.[5]

Tassadar, Zeratul, and the Queen of Blades are/were able to use a similar ability in the midst of combat.[6] Alarak possesses a variation of this ability, albeit with a psionic burst of energy upon reaching his target.[7]

Alarak demonstrated the ability to use a more powerful version of charge named Deadly Charge, which did heavy psionic damage upon initial contact with the target.[7]

Game EffectEdit

The following section contains information from Heroes of the Storm and is not canon to StarCraft continuity

Artanis has a blade dash ability in Heroes of the Storm, using his psionic speed to dash forward. This ability can be augmented with the talent "zealot charge," a reference to the zealot's psionic speed ability.

Zeratul has a level 10 heroic ability call "shadow assault". When activated, he uses his psionic speed to charge forward and increase his attack speed.

Deadly charge is available as a level 10 heroic ability for Alarak in the game.[8]
