• Her last name comes from the late 80's neoclassical heavy metal guitarist, Yngwie Malmsteen.
  • Her first name is derived from the 16th century Hungarian countess, Elizabeth Bathory; who behaved much like Malmsteen in using young women to maintain her youth. (Though in a more gorier fashion.)
  • Her Middle name is derived from the middle name of Dracula's main source of inspiration: Vlad Tepes Dracul.
  • The name of her homeland Petsylvania is a pet related spin on Transylvania.
  • The crystal she uses to drain essence is a direct inspiration from the Jim Henson movie The Dark Crystal.
  • The name given to Dudley 'Count Dud-ula' is obviously a pun of the name 'Count Dracula.'
  • 'Count Dud-Ula' also is loosely based off the name of the cartoon vampire duck 'Count Duckula.'
  • Another source of inspiration behind Lady Malmsteen and Petsylvania came from the video game series Castlevania. The plot where she removes Dudley as a threat by making him one of the castle's rulers is similar to the plot of Symphony of the Night.
  • Another video game series inspiration was drawn from Darkstalkers; where Lady Malmsteen's seductive charms and some of her physical attributes are similar to that of Morrigan Aensland.
  • The initial design of Lady Malmsteen is a cross between Morticia Addams from The Addams Family and Elvira the famous beautiful horror show host.
  • The fact she likes sparkly vampires and that werewolves are her natural enemies is a parody of the Twilight series.
