Kerrigan as she appeared in Blizzard DotA

Kerrigan was present in the game as earlier as its "Blizzard DotA" conception. In this version, she was an individual from the Antiverse. In this reality, she was betrayed by Raynor at New Gettysburg. She willingly embraced infestation by the zerg so that she could battle against the Terran Dominion.[3]

In terms of gameplay, Kerrigan was originally a DPS-type hero.[4] She could use her abilities to kill large numbers of enemy units simultaneously and could surprise enemy heroes with huge bursts of damage. She benefited from intelligence items.[3] She was compared to heroes like Krobelus, Darchow, or Lion from the original DotA.[5]

Kerrigan's ghost form was under consideration to be a separate hero in the game.[6] However, it has since been made an optional coloration for Nova.[7]

Kerrigan could originally ride a zergling mount.[8]
