* In ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'', a minor unique enemy named Kuduku, the False God has been an in-joke to the community as a literal RandomNumberGod. Earning Kuduku's favor includes "sacrificing" a (crappy) unique item in front him and pray that he will bless you on your efforts to six-link an item. In the Prophecy league, one of the prophecies require you to kill Kuduku who is assisted by Kadaka, the Goddess of Luck, which rewards you with Orbs of Fusing.
