In the first ''Literature/ThursdayNext'' book, Hades kidnaps one character from ''Martin Chuzzlewit'' and threatens to do the same to the main character. One character comments, "Can you imagine the other characters sitting around, waiting for a lead character who never appears?" This is the exact situation found in ''WaitingForGodot''; thus, at some point, Godot became one of Hades's victims.

When he initially shows up, Vladmir and Estragon ask if he is Godot,and he believes his self-importance would fit with a character of Godot's probable stature. He denies it, but given that Lucky used to do his thinking for him and doesn't anymore, it is plausible he forgot, especially since the other characters in the play are also highly forgetful. Also note the similar sounding names (pronounced Pot-so).

** It's possible that Pozzo/Godot knows who he is and is just testing to see how long they will put up with his shit for. Note how, despite claiming to not know who Godot is and not even being able to remember the name, [[ButHeSoundsHandsome he nevertheless claims that he would certainly be just as committed as Vladimir if he himself had an appointment with "Godet... Godot.. Godin... anyhow you see who I mean".]]

[[WMG: Godot is a metaphor for purpose.]]
Whether they'll admit it or not, everyone wants a purpose in life. There are two ways of going about it: 1.) Finding -or making- a purpose yourself or 2.) waiting for a purpose to fall onto your lap while you do nothing. Estragon and Vladimir chose the latter method. Or they ''think'' they did. Waiting for Godot is their purpose, since it's what the play is about.
