Diablo® III

I just killed "Rodent of unusual size" elite

A great reference to Princess Bride. Great movie and worth watching by the way.

Any other "easter eggs" anybody has found?

Tasker and Theo gloves are a reference to a fallen soldier and his dog companion.

Thanks, I had the movie on the tip of my tongue but just couldn't remember it. I saw that the other day and I smirked.

Edited...stupid auto correct.

I laughed out loud when I first saw Chupa Khazra in Act I and I think it is still one of my favorite monster names (along with the R.O.U.S the original post mentions).

borderlands reference in a2 desolate sand.

borderlands first boss named nine toes. in d3, it's a monster named nine toads with literally 9 toads around the place. would be funny if under its name it would say: "he doesn't have three balls" hahahaah

I have for the first time seen Sarella the Vile, Cruel Mistress of Pain. A veiled reference to Cruella deVille, but a delightful one nonetheless.

To make it even more complete a reference, on normal, he can drop a unique magic item named "The Clipper", much like the loot of the referenced foe.

I found "Donn Adams" in the Keep Depths and Googled it. Found this:

Not sure it's intentional or not but I definitely lol'd at the story.

Once I found Crabbs, a unique stygian crawler in A3 Tower of the Damned, says "YOU CAN T HAVE ME GOLDS".

Brick Top in Act III, with the wording "Arch Nemesis" or something along those lines underneath it, a reference to the movie Snatch

Rodents of unusual size? I don't think they exist.

(Wish I could post on my Inigo Montoya character, but I've let my WoW subscription lapse for now.)

I don't usually catch many of the movie references and things but I thought it was funny to be able to find Rakanishu's Blade in D3, a monster I died to more then once in D2 haha.

Shenlong wasn't Ryu's master in Street Fighter, it's just a translation made in something he said in the original Street Fighter 2.

Ryu's master was another named Gouken.
