A Unique Collection is a series of Achievements that involves killing specific kinds of monsters. These monsters are unique and have been given names.  The names are in purple text.

A screenshot has a small box on that says "Never Seen That Before". It is the start of three achievements that build upon each other.

The series starts with the Never Seen That Before Achievement, followed by the Special Snowflakes Achievement.

It ends with the A Unique Collection Achievement. Never Seen That Before: Kill one of the following unique enemies.

I earned this one on May 28, 2012.

A screenshot says: "Achievement Special Snowflakes" There is a box on top of that achievement that has a devil head in it. Above that is my Diablo III character, staring at a monster he just killed that is inside a circle.

Special Snowflakes: Kill 15 of the following unique enemies.

I earned this one on March 21, 2015.

Special Snowflakes is the second achievement in the group. It requires players to kill 15 of the enemies on the list. Two of the boxes have a demon head inside them.

Special Snowflakes: Kill 15 of the following unique enemies.

A continued list of the enemies that the player will eventually have to kill.

It doesn’t matter which one’s you kill – so long as it adds up to 15.

More of the list of enemies that the player will have to kill.

If I remember correctly, the list already counted the ones I killed for the first Achievement.

A box says: "Achievement Rewards" It shows a horse-head shaped embroidery. Under that it says "Banner Sigil".

Players who complete the Special Snowflakes Achievement are rewarded with a Banner Sigil.

I completed this achievement on November 6, 2019.

Here is the complete list of unique enemies. I found screenshots of most of them. Still gotta find the screenshots of the ones that are missing.

A Unique Collection now has all three boxes with a demon head in each. There are some names in this screenshot with checkmarks next to them.
A larger screenshot with several more names of enemies that I had to kill to earn the A Unique Collection Achievement. There are a lot of check marks.

I started working on this post several years ago, putting in screenshots when I could find them. I am aware that the screenshots are not uniform in size (and that some are missing). This is because the screenshots were taken in different years, and on different computers.

There is a saying: “Don’t let the perfect become the enemy of the good.” This blog post has been sitting in draft for a very long time. I needed to post something for #Blaugust2022, so here it is.
