"Fresh Meat!"

- The Butcher(src)

The Butcher is a brutal melee assassin hero from the Diablo franchise, who fuels his high sustain damage by consuming the remains of his ruined victims.

Background Edit

A grotesque shape lumbers across the Nexus, a cleaver and a blood-encrusted meat hook in his massive hands. His hunger, insatiable, insistent, drives him ever on to carve up his enemies and consume their fresh meat. Even those fighting alongside him shrink away in fear when he draws near. He is violence incarnate; he is brutality given shape. He is the Butcher.
