Forgotten Ones are mysterious entities related to the Old Gods. One appeared in a mission in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, where it was defeated by Arthas and Anub'arak as they journeyed through the lower reaches of Azjol-Nerub. The quest to destroy it described it as "an unfathomable horror of a long forgotten time".

The forgotten ones are massive and powerful tentacle-bearing aberrations living in the deepest reaches of Azjol-Nerub.
In Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, there was a chapter entitled The Forgotten Ones where Arthas and Anub'arak fought through an army of faceless ones and tentacles, with a massive Forgotten One as the boss at the end of the mission. The forgotten one lead the mysterious faceless ones, and it could "spawn" armies of tentacles and faceless ones to aid itself.
It is possible that there was more than one forgotten one. The chapter being entitled "The Forgotten Ones" implies that there were more than one of these creatures, and Anub'arak points out that the forgotten one fought by Arthas was but one of the creatures by saying it was "a forgotten one".

- The Forgotten One in Warcraft III bears physical similarities to C'Thun, and also Iso'rath, Go'rath, and Shu'ma who are presumed to be Forgotten Ones.
- Both instances of an explicitly labeled forgotten one have been later turned into faceless ones (Volazj and Soggoth). However, at least four similar creatures (of an unnamed type) have appeared in Cataclysm.
- Deathwing's final form, 'the Madness of Deathwing' shares some similarity to these creatures.
