* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Jean, as she's implicitly a very classist individual who thinks that her greater economic standing makes her a more qualified parent, even though she did nothing to recover the girls.

* NightmareFuelColoringBook: A typical example, but the kids paint the walls with pictures of themselves as they grow up, showcasing Mama's/[[spoiler:Edith's]] constant (and violently protective) presence.

* ShownTheirWork: The effects the five years of isolation had on the children, particularly Lilly, is this. Lilly refusing to wear shoes, refusing to sleep on the bed, refusing to sit at the table, crawling around on all fours and the way she was half-bent forward (as though she wanted to crawl) and clinging to her sister all show ways in which feral children have been shown to act. In the pictures shown during the opening credits, Victoria is drawn standing, but eventually she is shown to have dropped to all fours (like her sister, who never walked on two feet).

* 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.
