Notes[]

  • Unlike other members of the Royal Guard, the descriptor for the Winged Nightmare does not say "Part of Arcturus Mengsk's Elite Guard."
  • Data in the Galaxy Map Editor exists for the Winged Nightmare to have the Tomahawk Power Cell and Displacement Field upgrades, but they are absent in the final game.
