The following are a list of unit quotations in StarCraft and its expansion. Similarly to the Warcraft series, when a unit is clicked on five or more times, the unit says irrelevant things, mostly used for humor.

Unit Quotations

These quotations may be heard by clicking units in-game. Many protoss units say things in the Khalani language as well as English, so all Khalani quotations are italicized.

StarCraft Zerg Units

  • After the process of morphing a unit is complete (unit constructed), there is a slimy noise indicating that a unit just hatched.
  • Each zerg unit grunts in different ways and makes different noises when selected.
    • Drones emit a mechanical-sounding whine. When clicked multiple times, they gargle a sound vaguely resembling "Stop!"
    • Zerglings make a clicking sound. When they snarl, the clicking sound is mixed with the noise. When pestered long enough, they will shout an audible "Stop!"

Infested Terran

  • Live for the Swarm!
Selected Confirming order
  • Ready to kill.

Other Units

  • Scourge make a high-pitched screech.
  • Guardians, devourers, and queens give deep, low roars. If clicked on long enough, guardians will emit a deep laugh, which ends in a choking sound.
  • Defilers make low snarls. When clicked multiple times, two of the snarls resemble "Hey!" and "You there!"
  • Broodlings make impatient sneering shouts. When clicked for long enough, they chitter and laugh.
  • Ultralisks also give low roars.
  • Lurkers give low, somewhat 'hollow' roars, and actually laugh (in human sense) when clicked enough times.
  • Mutalisks make a screaming sort of noise.
  • Overlords make a grunting sound that sounds like a "HUH?", and when ordered, a garbled "YEAH!".
  • When selected, units tend to sound as if they are asking what orders they are given. This is because they make sounds that are higher in pitch at the end, sounding like human questions. When given an order the unit grunts in a way that sounds like confirmation.
