* SecondaryAdaptation: Originally a ''ComicBook/DCComicsSeries'' character created circa 1978, the [[{{ComicBook/Vixen}} character of Mari Jiwe McCabe]] is now a part of the {{Series/ArrowVerse}} continuity, a primarily live-action television medium, where her grandmother appears in ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''. This self-titled {{Spinoff}} show is an animated online series that first aired on CW Seed in 2015.


* TheThemeParkVersion: As noted in ArtisticLicenseReligion, Mari and the totem's African origins are all over the place. She is from a village named "Zambezi" - named after a river in Zambia - but which is a "M'changa" province and appearance wise appears to be in Kenya. However, they pray to a West African god, who grants them power associated with a second West African belief system. Her sister wears what appears to be a Kufi, which ''are'' used in West Africa but are actually Islam-related. By and large it appears to be a mashup of stereotypically "African" aspects from all over the continent.
