That being said, you cannot deny that there is a small similarity between Pudge and Blitzcrank.

Really though, it's not all that important.

ahh fresh meat is the sound effect for pudge's ult not his pull.

There are references in dota though, lina inverse is from slayers, they draw heavily from the WC3 storyline, venomancer is a hydralisk. not to mention the jokes.

most fantasy stuff developed from tabletop gaming specifically D&D, which was inspired by fantasy works such as Tolkien, Lovecraft, Burroughs and many more, even back then there were numerous references to other works such as the vorpal sword from Caroll's "jabberwocky". In essence the roots of all the fantasy RPGs and canonical classes we see today are derived from the structure and constructs of fantasy writers decades ago.
