* FountainOfExpies: Temptresses were already present in myth before Lilith, but her popularity and her fellow succubi's is the reason why female demons in Judeo-Christian lore are now invariably portrayed as HornyDevils. The expansion of Judeo-Christian sexual values also helped, as other female spirits like lamiae and empusae were turned from horrible child-eaters to beautiful seductresses of adults just as Lilitu had been turned into Lilith.



** The ''Treatise on the Left Emanation'' blurs things even more by having two different entities named Lilith, one being a major fallen angel and the other being a lesser demon.

* NamesTheSame:
** By the 1990s scholars such as David Noel had come to the conclusion that the Mesopotamian Lilu and Lilitu and the Jewish Lilith were originally considered to be different entities. Lilu and Lilitu were sometimes plural forms of male and female spirits whose behavior varied between individuals while Lilith was usually a single figure (but, not without dispute though, Lilith could be plural too sometimes).
** It should be noted that while there are texts about a Jewish demon, the closest reference to Lilith in Bible canon is liyliyth, which is in a list of various kinds of ''animals''.
