Anime & Manga
- Vampirella spawned even more, e.g. the "Portuguese Vampirella" Zakarella.
- Cyberella, an obscure title from DC's failed Helix line. Although the eponymous Cyberella was originally called Li'l Ella before she was retooled in the 1990s.

- Other fairy tales with -ella endings:
- The French fairy tale "Rosanella" - the titular princess is named so because she has a rose printed on her throat.
- Another French fairy tale, "Peronella" by François Fénelon, which is about a country girl who switches places with an old queen.
- "Prunella" from Andrew Lang's Grey Fairy Book is another example.
