Report of rancid speculation
Um, sorry to report rancid speculation, but I must say that a French thread on the RP WoW forum suggests, arguing, that Cho'gall is related to the five spooky children of Elwynn.-- (talk) 10:37, 28 April 2007 (EDT)
Who killed Cho'gall?
Originally it was Orgrim Doomhammer and the Blackrock clan, but in the novel Tides of Darkness it is different. In the novel, Rend & Maim and their Black Tooth Grin clan are sent after Gul'dan by Doomhammer. In that version of the story, Cho'gall dies fighting the Black Tooth Grin and its chieftains instead of the Blackrock clan and Orgrim. So which one do we call "canon"?--Illidan Rocks 00:13, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
Tides of Darkness. And I can't recall it ever being said that Orgrim killed Cho'gall.--Austin P 00:17, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
- It says right now that "Cho'gall died defending Gul'dan at the Tomb from Orgrim Doomhammer and his forces" right now, which is why I was not clear on what happened. I'll change it. It also says that Orgrim himself, along with the Blackrocks, chased Gul'dan to the Tomb and engaged him there, but I'll let somebody else worry about changing that.--Illidan Rocks 10:36, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
How could Orgrim Doomhammer be at the Isle of Sargares? He was out sieging Lordearon by the time that battle ended.--The last Alterac 07:37, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
- Certainly a small issue, RPG describes it as such;
- I think his death is described in ToD, but I don't think there was anyone of significance there. Come to think of it, it might have been one of those scenes where they have him charging at the enemy, but cut away for the next chapter... -- (talk · contr) 14:33, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
I thought since one head is Cho and another Gall that it would mean his name is aka Cho and Gall? It is confusing. If someone yelled "hey Cho'Gall" would both heads reply? Do people ever say "I want to talk to Cho and not Gall"? LOL Rolandius (talk - contr) 03:13, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
- "aka" is short for "also known as". I have never once seen someone call him "Cho and Gall." -- (talk · contr) 05:34, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
- Its kinda of mis interpreted, one head is called Cho and the other head is Gall, but that doesnt' mean the entire being is "Cho and Gall".Baggins (talk) 05:45, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
Nor the being known as Cho'gall was born from the fusion of two beings, but he was born like Cho'gall or one of the two head popped up through the use of dark magik. --N'Nanz (talk) 14:35, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
- Well it is said that ogres with 2 heads usually are found arguing with each other. Rolandius (talk - contr) 02:33, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
- Ogre mages get along better.-- 02:44, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
- If you've read Tides of Darkness, Rolandius, you'll notice that Cho and Gall got along just fine. Baggins, this counts as an editorial discussion because we're discussing something that was removed from the article. Admittedly, such complaints should usually be addressed to the usertalk of the one who did the removing, in this case, me.-- (talk · contr) 13:54, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
Guess who's back
- a little tease.... http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/misc/wccomic/issue16bg-4.jpg if is nor him, then is a twin, and also he leads the twilight hammer! *runs to the comic shop* Azahel (talk) 19:28, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Not many other Ogres it could be considering we were told a 'horde hero who was thought dead for 20 years would be making a return in the comic' at that convention a couple weeks ago. Leviathon (talk) 19:31, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
- Ok, it's him. At what point did the comic become WC1&2 NPC reunion?-- (talk · contr) 19:46, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
- To be fair it started with flash backs of Lothar, and baby King Wrynn.Baggins (talk) 19:49, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
- Okay now that would be crazy! I was more hoping they would re-open AQ similar to Naxx, because I and many others never had the chance to play it during its glorious days. -- 22:07, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Is he actually visible in game?
The Wiki and comic states that he is partying with C'thun in AQ. Is there a sprite of him anywhere in C'thun's chamber or in AQ at all in-game? Can any one check? I've looked around myself but haven't seen him. He might be invisible, or only visible with certain trinkets. (Like Ricole Nitche in Shat) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jennerfirst (talk · contr).
- I haven't been there but I had the impression he was not in-game or else the comic's info that he is alive would not really be "new". The closest thing I see connected to him is . Rolandius (talk - contr) 06:47, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
- Well shoot, I've got nothing to see anything hidden yet. So I'll see if I can get any look around. I dunno, I doubt he's in the game as well Jennerfirst (talk) 02:28, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
- He is not currently, but it's looking as though he may appear in Cataclysm. There was an image datamined labelled merely "ogre" that looks suspiciously like Cho'gall. He's got two heads and is outfitted in unique purple and gold armor. This is, of course, unconfirmed and there is no proof. But the resemblance is striking. --Rawtoast (talk) 18:48, May 10, 2010 (UTC)
Child of the Three Realms speculation...
"When the child of the three realms becomes as light, [various stuff now obviously about Cataclysm events]." Human, Orc, Draenei: my money's on Med'an. Now the question is, what does "as light" mean? Dead...? Tejon (talk) 15:48, March 22, 2010 (UTC)
- He's obviously talking about Med'an, but in the context of the issue it seemed more like he was referring to C'thun's resurrection than Cataclysm. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 17:45, March 22, 2010 (UTC)
The Most Jarring non-capitalised letter.
Is there any reason for the fact that the g in Cho'Gall is NOT capitalised considering the fact that Gall is a NAME? Even Jubei'thos and Gul'dan got a letter following the apostraphe capitalised INSPITE of the fact that their apostraphe is there for pronounciation reasons and not to diffrienciate between names (I.E Gul'dan's apostraphe is there in order to clarify the sylables so it is pronounced "Gul-dan" and not "Guld-an" as it would be pronounced with out the apostraphe. Seriously: It is one thing to consistantly spell Ork incorrectly, and it is another thing to not capitalise the first letter of a name.--The last Alterac (talk) 10:16, April 14, 2010 (UTC)
- Don't know, ask Blizzard. That whole one head is Cho and the other is Gall thing was introduced long after the character was. And the dan in Gul'dan is not capitalized. -- (talk · contr) 16:33, April 14, 2010 (UTC)
- That's great and all, but it's not up to us. Blizzard says that's how their names are capitalized, so that's how they're capitalized. If you want to continue this discussion further, the WoW story forum is probably a better place for it. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 01:06, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
He appears in-game
He appears in-game at Feralas, recruiting ogres to his cause, and surrounded by an army of ogre mages that are just like him before he transformed into the monster.--Lon-ami (talk) 15:52, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

- During beta where datamined info is common... at wowwiki we really need to see an in-game screenshot before we can start letting model images with gray backgrounds in... this goes for all bosses. 16:04, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
- Yeah, I hope so lol

- No player wields Sulfuras. They wield an upgraded Sulfuron Hammer with an Eye of Sulfuras attached. Cho'gall just made his own.-- 17:23, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
Now, bear with me here, i'm not saying split personality or schizophrenia. But from a few of the encounters i've had with him it seems as if his right head is rational (as far crazy, two-headed monstrosities hellbent on Armageddon go he's somewhat lucid) while his left seems rather emotional which leaves me to think that both brains in each respective head literally is two halves of the same insane and genocidal coin.
- He has two brains. They seem to have some kind of dynamic going on.-- 16:57, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
- It does seem like he has only one brain. Brain hemispheres each control opposing sides of the body (the left hemisphere controls the right sight of the body and vice versa). Speech is usually laterized to the left hemisphere and several forms of delusion are a result of damage in the right hemisphere. As Cho'galls right head seems to have the best ability of speech of the two and his left head seems somewhat delusional, I think it's very probable that he has only one brain. Emotions are usually bilateral though (both hemispheres involved). An explanation for the dynamic between the two heads could be a partially damaged link between the hemispheres (the corpus callosum), but I think this is a bit farfetched. Perhaps the dynamic originates from the fact that he has two heads each predominantly controlled by one hemisphere. Raiking (talk) 15:56, 30 May 2011 (UTC+1)
Old Horde ogres were Breakers?
- Rise of the Horde's take on the gronn and Krol. The Gorian Empire was not made up yet, so when the ogres joined they were not a factor.-- 21:55, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
Cho & Gall
- I'm not not sure but at the very least it could be a trivia note.--X59 (talk) 00:58, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
Manga, Stasia, Garona, Ahn'Qiraj
I think the timeline is very wrong in the paragraph regarding Cho'gall's flight to Kalimdor. Some information looks distorted and I think there may be missing points. Does anyone else think the same?--IROCHI) 10:59, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
Rough estimate of his age?
Has Cho'gall's age ever been determined? He seems to have been middle aged even when Drek'thar was young, which could put him at 90s for his time of death. It could be used to help the Lifespan section on Ogres. Gann Stonespire (talk) 03:44, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
