The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm which is no longer valid.

Sarah Kerrigan's unit underwent numerous changes during the development of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm.

Kerrigan could also increase her health, damage, armor and energy through upgrades unlocked by completing bonus objectives.[1][2]

By May 2011, Kerrigan had four skill sets, although not all had been developed as of then. Other potential skill sets revolved around defenses, comboing with air units, stealth and "roach-burrow supporting Kerrigan".[3]
