When translated from Japanese, "baba," or "婆" can translate as "old woman" or more crudely, "hag."
- Nuibaba's gender was unspecified in the Japanese script for Gaiden, though in some fan translations the character was referred to as male. However, in Fire Emblem Echoes, Nuibaba is now established as female.
- Nuibaba's physical appearance changed dramatically between her original appearance in Gaiden and the remake Echoes. In Gaiden, she appears in a heavy cloak, with wrinkled skin that appears snake-like. In Echoes, she has a more youthful appearance, the snake-like traits are exchanged for horns and pointed ears, and her attire is more revealing. Both versions of Nuibaba hide one eye from view. In Gaiden, one eye is obscured by her cloak, while in Echoes, she wears a partial mask over her face.
