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


  • Imperius: Allying with these pathetic weaklings is a waste of time.
  • Alarak: On that, we can agree.

  • Alarak: Oh, do I sense a little wrath stirring within you or is that my imagination?
  • Imperius: What you sense is far beyond your pitiful imagination.

Emoji Alexstrasza Pack 1 Alexstrasza Happy.png


  • Imperius: A guardian of the power of life... Not all things deserve your protection.

  • Imperius: And you are unlikely to do so again.

Hero with

Angelic skin

  • Imperius: Adorning oneself with the armaments of heaven does not make one angelic.

  • Imperius: You are unworthy of the armor you wear. When this is over, I shall tear it from you myself.
Emoji Anub'arak Pack 1 Anub'arak Happy.png


  • Imperius: Nerubians. Insects like you deserve to be exterminated.

  • Imperius: You have no idea.

Emoji Auriel Pack 1 Auriel Meh.png


  • Imperius: Auriel. I trust you are ready for the battle ahead.

  • Imperius: I always keep a level head!

Emoji Azmodan Pack 2 Azmodan Angry.png


  • Imperius: Must I really fight alongside a vile wretch like you?
  • Azmodan: I would not call what you do "fighting."

  • Azmodan: Hmm, tired of being on the losing side?
  • Imperius: I'm not the one who was slain by a lowly nephalem, Azmodan.

Emoji Butcher Pack 1 Butcher Happy.png

The Butcher

  • The Butcher: (growls)
  • Imperius: So you do feel fear.
Emoji Chromie Pack 1 Chromie Happy.png


  • Imperius: Those who meddle with fate find themselves succumbing to theirs.

  • Chromie: Do we know each other? Oh, sorry. Oh! I always forget these things!
  • Imperius: Be silent. Not all of us have the luxury of time.

Emoji Deckard Pack 1 Deckard Happy.png


  • Imperius: The last of Tyrael's Horadrim. Why he puts such faith in mortals is beyond me.

Emoji Jaina Dreadlord Pack 2 Dreadlord Jaina Angry.png

  • Diablo: Bear witness to the power of terror, angel.
  • Imperius: I will bear witness to your annihilation, demon.

  • Imperius: The one who calls himself darkness incarnate. How I look forward discarnating you.
  • Gul'dan: Your posturing does not impress me, being of Light.

  • Imperius: We will settle our differences later. ...and there is a vast difference between us.

Emoji Johanna Pack 1 Johanna Happy.png


  • Imperius: Nephalem. Am I to believe that this "Nexus" considers you a "hero"?
  • Johanna: Well, Imperius, you're here, so clearly they have no standards.

  • Johanna: Can you bear to fight alongside a mortal, Imperius?
  • Imperius: I fight alongside no one. I lead, and others follow.

Emoji Kharazim Pack 1 Kharazim Happy.png


  • Kharazim: I am honored to serve the heavens once more.
  • Imperius: A presumptuous notion.

Emoji Leoric Pack 1 Leoric Happy.png


  • Imperius: Leoric. The ease with which you fell to corruption is proof that your kind must be annihilated.

  • Imperius: The blasphemy you call "the Fel" will be abolished from existence. And I shall start with you.
  • Mal'Ganis: Do not mistake me for that fool Lothraxion. My alliance with the Light is only temporary.

  • Mal'Ganis: When drained of their Light, the Naaru fall into darkness. Perhaps the same is true for you.
  • Imperius: I am not convinced that you have the strength required to find out.

Emoji Malthael Pack 1 Malthael Meh.png


  • Imperius: How, Malthael? How could you betray everything we stand for? Answer me!
  • Malthael: Careful, brother, lest wrath consume you.

  • Malthael: Imperius.
  • Imperius: Brother... If only you had not attacked the High Heavens...

Emoji Mephisto Pack 1 Mephisto Happy.png


  • Imperius: Your hatred is nothing before the Heavenly Host, Mephisto.

Terran Hero

  • Imperius: So humans infect other universes as well? How astoundingly disappointing.
  • Terran: <hero dependent>
Emoji Tyrael Pack 1 Tyrael Meh.png


  • Imperius: Tyrael! Ancient law strictly forbids us from interfering with the mortal world. Yet you have done so, brazenly!
  • Tyrael: You cannot judge me, I am justice itself.

  • Tyrael: Imperius, at long last you have chosen to act.
  • Imperius: I am merely here to correct your many mistakes, Tyrael.

Emoji Sylvanas Pack 1 Sylvanas Meh.png

  • Imperius: Your crusade is nowhere near as grand as the armies of the High Heavens.

Emoji Yrel Pack 1 Yrel Happy.png


  • Imperius: Your piety is admirable. Unlike those wretched humans.
  • Yrel: You may not be a Naaru, but your blessings are no less welcome.

  • Imperius: I sense a divinity in you not found in most mortal races. You may prove to be a trustworthy ally.
