- Designated Hero: Inanna. This may or may not have been intentional, given Ereshkigal's Reasonable Authority Figure status.
- Fridge Logic: If Gugalana was killed off in The Epic of Gilgamesh but he was already married to the Queen of the Underworld/Goddess of Death, why wouldn't he still be there with her?
- Les Yay: Some think she was "more than just friends" with her priestess, ninshubur. A Babylonian retelling went so far as to change her gender, possibly aware of the subtext. Heck even some early fragments implied they were lovers!
YMMV / Inanna's Descent to the Netherworld
