The Mimic is a non-combat pet in Diablo III, added in patch 2.4.1. It drops from Menagerist Treasure Goblins.

A tiny chest. Why is it quivering? Just a harmless chest. Nothing bad could happen if you approach…


This section contains facts and trivia relevant to this article.
  • The Mimic will collect gold sitting on the ground for the player, even at the edge of the screen.
  • The pet's name, appearance and description are a likely reference to the Chest Monster cliché in fantasy, possibly pointing at Mimics from Dark Souls series specifically (the release of Dark Souls 3 happened at the time of patch 2.4.1 development, and quivering is a characteristic feature of these monsters). Similar creatures exist in many other universes though.
  • The quote may also be a reference to The Luggage, which followed the wizard Rincewind around in the Discworld novels.
