The Iron Horde is a union of the uncorrupted orcish clans of a parallel version of Draenor created by Garrosh Hellscream and his father, Grommash Hellscream, who was convinced by his unknown son's (who was never born in the alternate universe) knowledge of advanced machinery and the threat of the doom of the Orcish race to the Blood Curse of Mannoroth, along with existence of a different world in order to attain orcish supremacy in the universe. United under Grom Hellscream, the Iron Horde is bent on conquering Azeroth and Draenor. Their main area of operations is the Tanaan Jungle, where their main base of operations is situated.

Later during the war, control of the Iron Horde was usurped by Gul'dan and falls under the effects of the Blood Curse, with Kilrogg Deadeye being the first to drink the blood of Mannoroth. After this, Gul'dan assumed control of the organization, taking Grommash captive in Hellfire Citadel, which Gul'dan proceeded to corrupt and where the Eredar lord Archimonde has arrived to ensure that the invasion of Azeroth proceeds as planned.

Ultimately, the efforts of Gul'dan were defeated by the forces of Azeroth, the Draenei of Draenor and the opposing Orcs of the Frostwolf Clan, along with unexpected help from a penitent Grommash Hellscream. The Demon Lord Archimonde was defeated once more and any hope the Fel-Corrupted Iron Horde had of invading Azeroth was ruined. The Iron Horde, and Garrosh Hellscream's ambition, will go down in history as a monument to arrogance, deceit, and failure.
