Are there any non-legends that show up on multiple cards?

So with the new art for Terminate, Sun Titan makes a third appearance on a magic card (the other two being his own card and then Animate Dead). This makes me wonder. Are there any other NON-LEGENDARY creatures that make multiple appearances on magic cards? Can't think of too many off the top of my head.

The first one to come to mind is

Delver of Secrets  Flip --> Aberrant Researcher  Flip --> Docent of Perfection  Flip

At least, I'm pretty sure that's the same dude.

Urza Planeswalker is depicted on lots of cards without ever having a card of his own.

Ah, didn't even think of Delver! Good catch.

I suppose there's also Nivix Cyclops and Abrupt Decay.

There is the Boggart Brute -> Gather the Pack -> Eyeblight Massacre goblin.

zephramtripp, I noticed that a while ago and I loved the continuation of the artwork there. It's so great when the art can tell a story among multiple cards.

Also, Krenko, Mob Boss shows the goblins from Krenko's Command in it way in the background.

I believe the stampede in Garruk's Horde is led by Garruk's Companion. I don't think Garruk's Packleader is among the silhouettes though.

The Eternal Masters artwork of Wasteland is clearly referencing the Modern Masters artwork of City of Brass.

Frost Breath shows Frost Titan.

It is very possible that Fire-Lit Thicket may be the same land as Auntie's Hovel, altered by the transition from Lorwyn to Shadowmoor (ironically, the hovel looks to be red/green while the thicket looks to be red/block or green/black). Similarly, Wooded Bastion may possibly be Gilt-Leaf Palace after the transition (again, looking more black and less white than the original), and Graven Cairns may be Ancient Amphitheater.
