- Adaptation Displacement: Darna may be a famous superhero in the Philippines, but her actual comics are not so famous anymore. Nowadays she's better known from the many adaptations of her in movies and TV than from the original comics. The decline and death of the original Filipino comic book industry that produced her may have had something to do with it.
- Tom Hanks Syndrome: Vilma Santos, who portrayed Darna in a series of movies in the 1970s, is much better known among later generations of Filipinos for her serious drama films in the 1980s and beyond. (Also for entering into politics.)
