Jaina, Timmy, Arthas

This article contains lore taken from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, the manuals, and/or official bonus maps.

Timmy is a neutral ghoul encountered by Prince Arthas and Jaina Proudmoore in Andorhal in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos during Chapter Four of the Human Campaign called "Cult of the Damned".

Timmy is kept in a cage at the center of Andorhal and can be freed by destroying it. Timmy is a Neutral being, so he can only be attacked with the Attack-button and then a Left-click on him. He can be killed and drops the Ring of Superiority. Although his faction color is the same as the Undead Scourge, he is of the "Timmy" faction (which is, of course, not hostile to the player).


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.
  • It is speculated by some that the ghoul Timmy is in fact Little Timmy transformed by the plague. However, a character named Little Timmy is seen later selling ice shards, and even later on Theramore with his mother.
  • It is speculated by some that Timmy the Cruel in World of Warcraft is the same ghoul.

According to Warcraft III and World of Warcraft designer David Fried:[1]

Timmy got used a few times because multiple designers end[ed] up making the same references in different areas. Tim Campbell was the level designer who put the original Timmy into Warcraft III, and another level designer, Dean Shipley, put the undead ghoul Timmy in the later level. The WoW quest designers were not the same designers from Warcraft 3, so it's not surprising that things got mixed up, and thus you have Schrodinger's Timmy, who is simultaneously alive and undead.
