* CounterpartComparison: Mama has been compared to [[{{Literature/Coraline the Other Mother]], as both are long-fingered humanoid monsters with maternal {{Yandere}} traits toward the children they look after. However, Mama is acting in the childrens' best interest, while the Other Mother is using the children for her own benefits.



* DisabledCharacterDisabledActor: Many of Mama's bizarre and unsettling body movements were real, as she was played by an actor with Marfan syndrome, which allows him to move like that naturally. The long fingers are also a result of the condition.
