Shu'ma is one of three massive servants of the Old Gods who surface in the Dragonblight in the Dragon Soul raid, the other two being Go'rath and the Maw of Destruction. Within the Maw of Shu'ma, the faceless one Yor'sahj binds the blood of Shu'ma to his will, granting him power. Shu'ma ceases to attack upon the death of Yor'sahj.
- Shu'ma and Go'rath are likely named after Shuma-Gorath from Marvel Comics.
- Shu'ma appears as a legendary card in the Descent of Dragons expansion for Hearthstone. Its flavor text reads: "How to tell your mother to go away."
