Whatever 10 end up winning, I will need people to explain what each one’s reference is to me in case I’m not aware of it. xD

I know most of them that have a reference, but not all.

It’s either a reference, wordplay or a joke.

Mostly references though

As a big Dragon Age fan, I’m all about the Hippogryph: “No, swooping is not bad.”

Mercy and Venbarak both are Shakespeare quotes (The Tempest and Macbeth, respectively). Gotta give props to that sort of reference.


Zephyros, Lightning bolt, Lightning bolt, Lightning bolt

I think that’s a magic the gathering reference. An old one since lightning bolt was retired a long time ago.

Its from an old viral video that became somewhat of a meme:


Yes, I recall that 1. And the 1 currently in first is from Star Trek.

Voted for Sheggra! :wink:

The only one I don’t know from the current top 10 on the poll is Grave Knight. I don’t know super heroes at all, so the reference makes no sense to me. xD

I think Crypt Knight is supposed to be similar sounding to Kryptonite, the only substance that can weaken Superman. Witty if not a bit groan inspiring pun!

EDIT: A bit after the fact but I’m surprised the Bunninog one didn’t make the list, figure there would be more Monty Python fans around.

He let the dogs out was another good one on the druid.

StarCraft also referenced it via the Terran Medic. Plague is more out of place lol.

It’s all Venbarak, because…well…Shakespeare. I mean, done, right?

Shakespeare is a cokehead hack who had trouble finishing his stories. In almost everything he DID finish, the last Act commonly wrapped up very hastily and left plenty of loose ends.

And yet! ;p

sounds like the end of a season for a tv show, but then is canceled!

Reaver’s Dark Elf should be referencing Drizzt Do’Urden of the Forgotten Realm heroes.
