Fukurokuju can be befriended as a daily battle through battling him in his arena that can be accessed by talking to Mr. Wonderful next to the Dream Wheel in Northbeech, and trading three or five Ghastly Fragments for a Shining or Heavenly Aura, respectively.
Alternatively, it can be traded for a Shining or Heavenly Aura in Blasters-T, to open up his dungeon where he can be obtained as a Clu-T-Fact reward.
Fukurokuju can rarely be befriended as a Clu-T-Fact reward for clearing the dungeons Labyrinth of Light, and Labyrinth of Ultra Light.
Traded: Very well, I shall bestow my bountiful blessings upon you instead.
Fukurokuju is based off of a god of the same name, belonging to the shichifukujin (see Benzaiten#Origin).
It has been theorized that he is a Japanese assimilation of the Chinese Three Star Gods (Fulushou) embodied in one deity. Most related in appearance to the Chinese star god Shou, he is the God of wisdom and longevity. According to some, before attaining divinity, he was a Chinese hermit of the Song Dynasty and a reincarnation of the Taoist god Xuanwu. It is said that during his human incarnation, he was a sennin; a philosopher who could exist without eating food.
