Halloween Special 2016 is the tenth and Halloween-special episode in the fifth season of StarCrafts. It is the ninety-fifth episode overall.

Plot Edit

After the events of "Halloween Special 2015", Firebatman jumps from the tower and unleashes the iconic fire afterburner, scaring the marine, ghost and even Jokefestor further. Both marine and the ghost take downstairs and flee from the infested academy. They run and stumble towards the defoliated forest.

As the ghost look around, Jokefestor suddenly shows up until Firebatman knocks him out on his head. Marine and ghost hugs the hero for saving them. However, there is a shadowed figure drifting across them very fast. It is revealed to be an adjutant hiding behind the tree. A marine comments about the horror, asking his companions if he is paranoid.

Clouds engulf the sky, covering the moonlight. As the music box melody plays, Firebatman turns on the flashlight for the group, and aims at a cord pulling to the tree. He becomes more nervous. Not taking the darkness and hidden horror anymore, the group cracks up and runs further, leaving the flashlight dropped on the ground.

On next scene, protoss executor in Pope costume and high templar in Raiden costume are seen egging the cathedral. Marine knocks the templar off and continues to run in panic. Both protoss scram as Diablo in baby fashion goes out of his dwelling and blasphemes.

It is now a marine and ghost remaining, as Firebatman has been disappeared. The ghost sees a face rotating clockwise on the tree branch. After the close inspection, the face abruptly screams in front of them and two terran units are frightened. But, however, it turns out to be the adjutant telling them not to be scared and giving them candies. She then tells them that she likes their costumes but she killed their friend (probably Firebatman.) She crawls away with "Happy Halloween" remark. The marine decides to eat candy while the ghost is baffled.
