This is That Which Must Not Be Named. I got it from a Menagerist Goblin while trying to complete a Bounty in Diablo III in 2016. There’s a joke attached to this one that requires some explaining if you don’t play Diablo III.
My Witch Doctor, and his vast amount of pets, were easily able to kill this Menagerist Goblin.
The flavor text for That Which Must Not Be Named says: It is a lie.
Diablo Wiki says that the flavor text also included: From a place that doesn’t exist. This implies that there may have been an update to the flavor text sometime after I took this screenshot.
The flavor text is pointing players toward an ongoing joke in which people claim: “There is no cow level”. That said, there are some ways players can have cow level-like experiences in Diablo III.
A Nephalem Rift has a small chance to spawn a Rift Guardian named Lord of Bells. The Ghost of the Cow King also appears during the Jar of Souls event/bounty. The one I find to be the most fun is a special event where you and King Kanai go through a portal to Kanai’s Stomping Grounds to kill the Infernal Bovines.
My Witch Doctor is wearing bright yellow armor. His five dog-like creatures surround him. The Templar appears to be trying to put some space between himself and the dog-like creatures. Off to the side stands That Which Must Not Be Named, holding a large pike with a pointy end on it.
This pet is a non-combat pet (as are all of the rest of them). To me, this one looks like it is ready to choose violence over picking up gold for the player.
That Which Must Not Be Named is a medium-sized creature. Witch Doctor for scale.
