* That's a WMG? I thought it was obvious that he likes her, and much of their interaction throughout the film is pretty standard prepubescent flirting. She does call him a stalker. None of this is subtle.

The powers the two display are broadly similar: personal pocket dimensions, RealityWarping, dominion over lost souls, OneWingedAngel form, [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking same hair color]] and a limited capacity to influence the mortal world. The Other Mother's hand escaping through the door and Aggie's Witch Storm come to mind. Maybe Aggie simply has more power due to having ensnared more victims to feed off of or being forced to sleep for three hundred years allowed her to preserve her energy. Regardless, what if these two are connected? Maybe the Other Mother is actually Aggie's mother gone mad with grief and trying to recapture her bond only for it to go horribly wrong? Maybe the OM (when she was still alive) could also talk to the dead, was persecuted for her powers and died a violent death?

[[WMG:Only certain children can become "Other Mothers."]]
In line with some of the Beldam-reproductive-cycle [=WMGs=], each subsequent Beldam is indeed one of the children that the previous Beldam captured; in order to become the Beldam, the kidnapped child needs to embrace the Other Mother as their ''real'' mother, taking the buttons and willingly giving up all memory of their old lives, including their parents. This is why the Beldam targets children who are unhappy with their parents, since it makes it more likely that they'd be willing to completely leave their old life and families behind. The ghost children still have scraps of memories, even though the time since their death/capture have erased most of the details, and it's likely that they, like Coraline, regretted their decision to stay or didn't understand the choice they were making. Once a Beldam finds a child who's willing to accept her, she's at least partially sated and perhaps even goes into semi-complacency as they feed on the child's adoration. Of course, any kid who'd be willing to go along with this would have at least one screw loose, and as we see the Beldam's "love" culminates in her devouring the children: In an ironic twist, being "loved" by a child prevents the Beldam from draining and killing them, giving the child enough time to become warped by eldritch magic and eventually devour the Beldam, becoming the new Other Mother. This is how the Other Mother from the book/movie could both have a mother and killed her despite being a horrific inhuman monster, possibly keeping the previous Beldam alive and draining her slowly while the new Beldam got used to her new power/lured in more children. As noted above the root of Beldam has a male equivalent in Belsire, so it's entirely possible that there are male Other "Mothers" who evolved from abducted boys.

Both her and Yukiyo have an obsession with Doll making. The Doll's eyes can see things most eyes shouldn't be able to see. In Beldam's case, she can see into people's houses through Dolls Eyes, and the Doll's eye Yukiyo made Mei see who is alive and dead. Both are extremely possessive of their surrogate children and even at one point mentioned or has been mentioned by someone they know to refer to their kids as dolls.

* [[ThePrincessAndTheFrog Dr. Facilier]]. As stated on the WMG page for that particular film. He was sucked into the Other World by his main "Friend", the Beldam, after he failed to uphold his end of the deal with her. Once he was there, she proceeded to turn him into a cat as further punishment, and he's been fighting her ever since. Plus, like Foley and the Arbiter, he's got the voice actor connection going on.
