** This could be [[Handwave Handwaved]] by the fact that Voodoo is not mentioned in the game, so the witch doctor might actually be practising a different religion that resembles Hollywood Voodoo.

I have decided to mention that Voodoo is not mentioned in Diablo 3 and that its witch doctor class might actually practice a different but similar religion.

Inadvertently duplicated part of quote
* ''Literature/DaveBarrySleptHere'' describes UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan's "Reaganomics" as having been "based on the theory that the government could ''lower'' taxes while ''increasing'' spending and at the same time actually ''reduce'' the federal budget by sacrificing a ''live'' chicken by the light of a ''full'' moon. Bush charged that this amounted to 'voodoo economics,' [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush Bush]] charged that this amounted to 'voodoo economics,' which got him into hot water until he explained that what he meant to say was 'doo-doo economics.'"

* {{Averted}} in ''ComicBook/TexWiller'' (whose writers are rightly known for [[ShownTheirWork extremely accurate research]]): aside for voodoo priests being able to actually raise zombies, voodoo rituals and practitioners are portrayed accurately, and we actually see mentioned the similar religion known as Santeria. Baron Samedi is mentioned by name, but they also make a point of stating he's just one of ''many'' loa, and the only reason he gets focused on is a story arc having an insane villain that believes himself to be him in a human body.
