Guff Runetotem is unique to Hearthstone as one of the ten mercenaries introduced in Forged in the Barrens.

A gentle giant more at home with trees and animals than politics…
Guff is the great-nephew of Archdruid  Hamuul Runetotem. Like others of his tribe, he embraced the beauty and power of nature; his awe for its majesty is as boundless as the natural realm. Guff once issued funeral rites to a grass clipping, and many assume he is weak and harmless, but his animal instinct will go wild if someone harms nature or his friends.
Guff’s family has never known quite what to do with him. Even among other druids he is perceived as soft and tender. In the hope of toughening him up, Uncle Hamuul sets him loose on the Barrens. Neither Guff nor the Barrens was ready for it…[1]

Amongst the four children Elise was guiding ~1m21s into the reveal trailer of Journey to Un'Goro (they salute her at the end) three resembled adult mercenaries later seen in the Forged in the Barrens set: the Tauren on the lower-right resembles Guff while the orc resembles  Rokara and the slingshot-wielder resembles  Varden Dawngrasp. After this was highlighted on Reddit,[2] Matt London initially replied to a "kids are all grown up?" question about this on Twitter stating it was non-coincidental, implying it was intended.,[3] but later the day in response to a reaction[4] stated he did not intend to confirm anything.[5]

Following his introduction in Hearthstone, Guff Runetotem would go on to appear in World of Warcraft with the Dragonflight expansion, appearing in the Waking Shores.
