Duke's alias ("Golgo 13") contains references to the death of Jesus Christ. Golgo is short for Golgotha, the place of Jesus' crucifixion. The number 13 is considered an unlucky number in Christianity because there were thirteen participants at Jesus' Last Supper before his execution. Also, Golgo 13's logo is a skeleton wearing a Crown of Thorns.

The origin of Golgo 13 is left in complete mystery, his age and birthplace both completely unknown. Japanese, Japanese-American, Japanese-British, a man who has origin around Lake Baikal, mixed Japanese and Russian, mixed Japanese and German, mixed Japanese and Jewish, or of other mixed Asian. Various episodes throughout the Golgo 13 series have tried answering this mystery, but all of the origin episodes end with a note of uncertainty that never make sense if the story's theory was definitely true.
