StarCrafts is a series of short videos by Carbot Animations. They feature the trials and tribulations of life in the Koprulu sector.[1] It was created by Jonathan Burton.[2]

Despite the simplified cartoonish art style of the series, the units are still surprisingly recognizable as the unit they are intended to be (especially the zergling, depicted in the animations as cute and playful puppy-like creatures). Many of the episodes parody common situations encountered in gameplay (the annoying and intrusive protoss announcer, zerg queens being slow off creep, terran cyclones adeptness as a hit and run unit) which is exaggerated to humorous levels.

StarCraft: Cartooned[]

Main article: StarCraft: Cartooned

On July 23rd, 2019, a graphical overhaul in the style of StarCrafts was added to StarCraft: Remastered named StarCraft: Cartooned. Multiplayer and the campaign were changed to match the style of Carbot's cartoons.[3]


Season 1[]

Season 1 takes place in a grassy area. It features the 3 races trying to destroy each other's bases.

Season 2[]

Season 2 takes place in the volcanic area of Lava Flow, apparently below the area depicted in season one. Season two's release roughly corresponded (As well as being based on) with the release of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm.

Season 3[]

Season 3 takes place in a wasteland area. It features the infestor, referred to by fans as Derpfestor, creating an army of all 3 races by capturing worker units (a probe, an SCV, and a drone that formed when the infestor swallowed several larvae) and being defeated in the end when all of its buildings are destroyed by 3 reapers and a viper consuming the last zerg building.

Season 4[]

Season 4 takes place in a Brood War era after the surviving terrans of season 3 traveled back in time at 88 miles per hour. The environment is a grassy area once again. It was planned to have only 7 episodes. Carbot has described it as "a short yet very nostalgic" season.[4]

Season 5[]

Season 5 begins in April 2, 2016, corresponding to the release of StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void.[5] as well as being based on it. It takes place on a space platform.[6]

Season 6[]

Season 6 began on November 25, 2017. Its theme is the Abyssal Reef and it takes place entirely underwater.

Season 7[]

Season 7 began on June 22, 2019 and is the final intended seasonal release in the series. It marks yet another return of the Derpfestor and the greedy executor from previous seasons.


Carbot has produced abridged episodes that summarize the events of StarCraft/Brood War and Wings of Liberty/Heart of the Swarm in the StarCrafts format.[7][8]


StarCrafts spawning portrait

A StarCrafts portrait and achievement is available to those who either spawn someone up to their level by joining a party with them or be spawned up by someone else.[9] A StarCrafts zergling-style T-shirt was available at BlizzCon 2013.[10]

A Carbot Fun Pack is available for purchase in the StarCraft Collections page, containing portraits, decals, and emoticons.[11]

The series has its own mod for StarCraft II.[2]

For April Fool's 2016, the Carbot Zergling was announced as a new commander in Co-op Missions.[12]

In the Legacy of the Void mission "Harbinger of Oblivion," if the player clicks the nydus worm in Kerrigan's base multiple times, it will cause the worm to spawn zerglings with their StarCrafts appearance as a skin.

A full reskin of StarCraft: Remastered in the style of StarCrafts has been announced for release July 10th, 2019. This will be a fully reskin of the game, for both multiplayer and campaign.[13]
