Repelling Charge (Costs 2 Actions). The Butcher uses his Repelling Charge.

(Diablo 3)

"The truth about the Butcher demon was more startling than I ever anticipated. Evidently, there are many of them within the Burning Hells, though they used to be solely under Diablo's command. The butchers are stitched together from the parts of other demons to combine their strengths, then given life through wicked magic."
