Stampede is a row 10 hunter talent.


  • This ability was mentioned in the April Fools' Day Legion alpha patch note preview: "Stampede now summons all pets that your character has ever tamed, all pets that your character has ever thought about taming, all pets that your character's pets have ever thought might be fun to hang out with, and all pets that the enemy target just really hates being killed by."
  • Stampede is the Warcraft III Beastmaster unit's Ultimate ability. It "calls down hordes of rampaging thunder lizards to explode upon the Beastmaster's enemies."
  • Stampede is an epic Hunter spell in the Journey to Un'Goro expansion for Hearthstone. The flavor text reads: "Many hunters long for the pitter-patter of enormous feet."
