"Artanis, I'm detecting a rift opening near your position! A Void thrasher! By the gods... It's sieging the warp conduit."

The void thrasher

Void thrashers are psionic creatures that originate from the Void. They served as artillery for Amon.


"A Void Thrasher? Here? I thought those were purely theoretical!"

A void thrasher

Void thrashers have been observed to make their way out of Void portals on the surface of worlds. Their upper bodies possess scythe-like appendages, while tentacles make up the lower part of their bodies.[1]


Void thrashers were first encountered during Amon's attack on Shakuras. Amon used them in an attempt to destroy the city of Talematros's warp conduit, summoning them from rifts into the Void itself. The Daelaam reinforcements managed to clear out the launch bays before the warp conduit was destroyed.[2]

Void thrashers would later be deployed during the expedition into the Void, used by Emil Narud to push back the zerg and terran lines. With protoss support, these were pushed back, and Narud was slain. [3] Several more were sent against Sarah Kerrigan as she attempted to channel the essence of Ouros to ascend into a xel'naga, but they were all destroyed before they could stop the channeling.[4]

During the End War, Void thrashers were present in Char, attacking terran forces under the command of Bama Kowalski.[5]
They also appeared to siege a temple of Shakuras Rohana was planning to use to destroy the local Amon forces.

Game Unit[]

Void thrashers appear in both the campaign mode of Legacy of the Void and Co-op Missions (in particular Void Thrashing and Temple of the Past).[7] They possess a ranged attack.[6] They can be targeted by air-to-air attacks in a manner similar to the colossus.[7]

Their starting unit rank is called "Void monstrosity."[6]


The void thrasher has a projectile ability where an icon is marked on the ground, before it shoots energy beams out of its body to the area.[1]
