** In keeping with the U.S. politics theme, conflating Alabama Senator Doug Jones with the ''[[NamesTheSame actor]]'' Doug Jones, who portrayed the Faun and the Pale Man in this film (and has had major roles in several other Del Toro films, including the Asset in ''Film/TheShapeOfWater'').

** On the flip side, del Toro considers the film a metaphor for the Spanish Civil War, and many people ran with it, specially in Spain. Interpretations go as far as to consider, for instance, Vidal a representation of Franco's regime, Carmen a representation of Spain itself, Ofelia a representation of the Spanish Second Republic and Ofelia's brother a representation of the Spanish democracy that would come at the end of Franco's regime.

* HilariousInHindsight: Ofelia's name in the fantasy world is "Princess Moanna". Come 2016, when there's an actual DisneyPrincess [[Disney/{{Moana}} with this name]] (although spelled slightly differently).
