It's a sacred number in the Dharmic religions, was the number of outlaws in The Water Margin, and (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/108_(number)) had some influence in martial arts in China given the buddhist aspect of their origins.

But I don't know if this is coincidental.

If it wasn't coincidental, why was 108 settled on?
