The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft that is ambiguously canonical.

The tagal were a race hostile to the protoss, known to have inhabited the world of Dannuth VII.

Fenix and Artanis fought their forces there. The protoss were outnumbered 30:1 but were still victorious.[1][2]

As of 2503,[3] it appears that the general terran population of the Koprulu Sector possesses no knowledge of the tagal's existence.[4]


  • The tagal were a species that Chris Metzen made up on the spot during the development of StarCraft and in the period since the game's release, no development has gone into fleshing out the tagal further. However, he is open to the possibility of tagal lore being developed.[5] In terms of playability however, Metzen has expressed reluctance to make a fourth race playable, as it could diminish the dynamic between the terran, protoss and zerg factions.[6]
  • It was stated in an interview by Blizzard employees that the zerg are universally feared, hated and hunted by all the sapient species of the Milky Way.[7] The statement was quite general however, and it is unclear how much of it (if any) can be said to apply to the tagal.
