- Dian Lamitan can be considered as the darker opposite of her stepdaughter & archenemy Amaya.
- Some of Dian Lamitan's aspects are very similar to Lady Tremaine, particularly how they abused their stepdaughters, treated their husbands badly (Dian Lamitan manipulated Rajah Mangubat into killing Bugna, as well as blackmailing him several times; Lady Tremaine is believed to have killed Cinderella's father) & have their own daughters have an aligned marriage to a monarch to gain a higher status in society.
- Dian Lamitan is considered as one of the greatest drama villains of all time in GMA TV series. Even her actress Gina Alajar was nominated as the best villainess of 2011.
