Diablo III is Recycling

There was an ambiguous tweet that has left room for plenty of debate and discussion.

Official Blizzard Quote:

Diablo: One of our new creatures is a memorable D2 throwback - more to come at BlizzCon.
Just what does this mean? At first glance, it may just seem like a an obvious monster that was in Diablo II has returned to Diablo III much like the DiabloWiki.com - Fallen Fallen, although they have added many different types this time, or the Tomb Viper. What other iconic and familiar monsters could they want to throw back in? Perhaps the annoying little DiabloWiki.com - Demon Imp Demon Imps at Mt.Arreat are still hanging around the area or the DiabloWiki.com - Sabre Cat Sabre Cat has made its way out of the desert and into a new location. The possibilities are numerous and it is safe to assume that many familiar enemies will be returning to Sanctuary for us to vanquish once again.

So, why post this comment? Upon closer and more literal inspection, the quote refers to a "new" creature. Perhaps this creature is not one we have fought before but was in Diablo II. Perhaps something similar to the fight with Griswold in Act I. However, the term "creature" is also used deferring from an NPC coming back to fight us. So just what creatures are in Diablo II that we have not gotten to fight against yet remains "memorable" from the game? Perhaps if we all play Diablo II again for the hundredth time, we can solve this mystery. You can also check out Doomscream'simpressive compiled list of possibilities here.
