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


  • Tychus: You're Tal'darim? What happened, blue and gold ain't edgy enough for ya?
  • Alarak: Save your words, primate. Spare me from hearing your orifice flap.
Tal'darim traditionally use red and black as opposed to the normal blue and gold of the Khalai. However, when Tychus fought the Tal'darim in Wings of Liberty, they used the regular multiplayer models for the protoss (which are mostly blue and gold) rather than the skins closer themed to Alarak, and this is likely lampshading that Tychus did not live to see the later games were they had their models changed.
  • Alarak: The Terrans. Ugh, were there no viable allies?
  • Tychus: Look, I am the most viable man you'll ever meet! ..Um, what's viable mean again?
While clever, Tychus isn't the most traditionally educated man. Alarak meanwhile sees the terrans as lesser creatures, useful only for manipulation.
Emoji Ana Pack 1 Ana Happy.png


  • Ana: Ah, good. Someone else with military experience.
  • Tychus: Uh.. what?
While an outlaw, Tychus got his start in the Confederate Marine Corps in the 321st Colonial Rangers Battalion in the Guild Wars where he and Raynor earned some renown.
Emoji D.Va Pack 1 D.Va Happy.png


  • Tychus: Hey, impressive mech, kid. I gotta know, you got one in blue?
  • D.Va: Hey, hands off!
Tychus enjoys big guns and walkers. Likely a reference to him stealing the Odin, a combat walker that was in blue, and the fact his armor is blue.
  • D.Va: No one's gonna believe I met someone from StarCraft! Can we take a selfie?
  • Tychus: Uh.. yeah. Wh– what the hell is a 'selfie'?
While mobile fones with picture capabilities exist the Koprulu sector, the concept of a selfie does not exist.
Emoji Kerrigan Pack 1 Kerrigan Happy.png


  • Tychus: The Queen of Blades. Stuck with you, huh.
  • Kerrigan: Don't worry about it. You'll be left behind, soon enough.
After trying to kill Kerrigan, Tychus is show and killed by Raynor for betraying him, and his corpse is left behind on the floor of a Char hive.
  • Kerrigan: Ugh, Tychus. I can't believe this.
  • Tychus: (laughs) Yeah, a little starstruck, huh? Don't worry, baby. Happens to the best of us.
Emoji Kerrigan Pack 1 Kerrigan Happy.png

Kerrigan with

Queen of Ghosts skin

  • Tychus: I can't believe I got stuck babysittin' you.
  • Ghost Kerrigan: Well, now I'm kinda glad you end up infested.
Queen of Ghosts Kerrigan is from an alternate StarCraft II timeline where she is completely purified, and Tychus is infested by the zerg. This is a reference to the Infested Tychus skin. Tychus does not get infested in the canon of StarCraft.
  • Ghost Kerrigan: Tychus... Ugh, I can't believe it.
  • Tychus: Yeah, I can't believe it either.
Queen of Ghosts Kerrigan remembers Tychus's attempt to kill her, while in Heroes of the Storm Tychus has not yet been infested.
Emoji Lt. Morales Pack 1 Lt. Morales Happy.png

Lt. Morales

  • Tychus: Ain't you former UED? Hope you got my back, partner.
  • Lt. Morales: I'll be right behind you. Let's get going.
The United Earth Directorate (UED) invaded the Koprulu sector during the Brood War in an attempt to subjugate the terran colonies and alien colonies, but were repelled when the forces of the sector allied against them. As such, they are looked upon with great distrust as imperialist conquerors. Lt. Morales was a member of this invasion fleet stranded in the sector after its destruction.
  • Lt. Morales: Marine and Medic. A classic combination!
  • Tychus: Now, if I only had my stimpacks
In StarCraft, marine and medic is one of the core compositions of terran. Stimpack is an ability that damages marines but increases their movement speed and rate of fire, but medics could heal the damage done to them. However, stimpacks are horribly dangerous and addictive, and Tychus avoided addictive drugs other than alcohol and tobacco, as he didn't want to be beholden to anyone or anything.
Emoji Murky Pack 1 Murky Happy.png


  • Tychus: Heh, a little fish man. That's weird.
  • Murky: <Response indicating he is excited and ready to fight>
  • Murky: <Playfully questioning the person next to him>
  • Tychus: Uh, what?
Emoji Nova Pack 1 Nova Happy.png


  • Tychus: You up for this, sweetheart?

Emoji Probius Pack 1 Probius Happy.png


  • Tychus: Hey! How come I got stuck with a talking trash can?

  • Probius: (boops)
  • Tychus: You are awfully lippy for a toaster, ain't ya?
Emoji Zeratul Pack 1 Zeratul Happy.png

Protoss Hero

  • Tychus: Protoss? Well ain't I the lucky one.
  • Protoss hero: <hero dependent>
Tychus has a distrust for the protoss, and never understood the friendship Raynor had for them. Also lampshades some of their grim determined attitudes.
  • Protoss hero: <hero dependent>
  • Tychus:  Jiminy Christmas, you protoss sure know how to bring down a party.
Emoji Raynor Pack 1 Raynor Happy.png


  • Tychus: Just like old times, eh, partner?
  • Raynor:  Like old times.
A reference to the Wings of Liberty cinematic "Old Times," where upon accepting a job from Tychus this exchange occurs. Raynor and Tychus have a history, serving in the 321st Colonial Rangers Battalion during the Guild Wars, then becoming infamous outlaws after they rebelled from their corrupt commanding officer and went AWOL. However, when a bank robbery went south, Tychus took the fall to allow Raynor to escape.
  • Raynor:  Just like old times, eh, Tychus?
  • Tychus:  Yep, just like old times.
Emoji Sgt. Hammer Pack 1 Sgt. Hammer Happy.png

Sgt. Hammer

  • Tychus: Well, if it ain't Bama the Hamma. They still let you drive that thing?
  • Sgt. Hammer: And just how would they stop me?
Sgt. Hammer's full name is "Alabama Kowalski," also known as "Bama the Hammer." She was a famed siege tank pilot in the Terran Dominion, and possibly the Terran Confederacy given that Tychus seems to know her in spite of him being in cryosleep until four years after the Dominion's founding.
  • Sgt. Hammer:  Nice gun. Compensating for something?
  • Tychus:  (laughs) No.
A joke at overcompensating for sexual performance using large objects. According to Lisa Cassidy, Tychus was not.
Emoji Stukov Pack 1 Stukov Meh.png


  • Tychus: So.. you're a zerg now, huh? Sucks to be you.
  • Stukov: When the UED returns, I hope they crush you.
Stukov was a terran who was killed, then infested by the cerebrate Kaloth, then cured, then had the cure fail and him revert to his infested state.
  • Stukov: Terrans. I despise you almost as much as I despise myself.
  • Tychus: Boy howdy, you earth folks have issues.
Stukov is from Earth, who was sent to the sector to conquer it during the Brood War. Tychus however was imprisoned in cryostasis during this time.
Emoji Blaze Pack 1 Blaze Happy.png

Terran Hero

  • Tychus: Nice to see somebody I can trust around here.
  • Terran hero: <hero dependent>
Tychus distrusts aliens and things he doesn't understand, and thus looks forward to terran allies.
  • Terran hero: <hero dependent>
  • Tychus: Ah, Tychus Findlay won't let you down... probably.
Emoji Zarya Pack 1 Zarya Meh.png


  • Tychus: Ah, good to see I'm not the only muscle around here.
  • Zarya: We've got this!
Zarya is a renowned weightlifter and bodybuilder, and Tychus, being 6'7" and 363 pounds, is large even for a Koprulu sector terran.
  • Zarya: Nice mini-gun! What do you say you let me give that thing a try sometime?
  • Tychus: If I can take that laser thingy there for a spin, you got yourself a deal!
A poke at the fact that Zarya is often compared to the Heavy from Team Fortress 2, both being Russian and with a similar silhouette, and Blizzard artist Phil Gonzo noted that Tychus's minigun appearance was also inspired by the Heavy.
Emoji Dehaka Pack 1 Dehaka Happy.png

Zerg Hero

  • Tychus: Fighting alongside a zerg just don't sit right with me.
  • Zerg hero: <hero dependent>
While Tychus was in cryosleep for their first invasion, during the Wings of Liberty campaign he noted how uncomfortable and disturbing the zerg were, particularly their infestation abilities.
  • Zerg hero: <hero dependent>
  • Tychus: Alright, let's get this over with already.

However, to ensure his cooperation, Mengsk sealed Tychus in his armor and had it wired so Mengsk could shut down his major organs should be break their deal.
