* {{Foreshadowing}}: A story from 1959 titled "Aquaman meets Aquagirl" featured Aquaman meeting the titular Aquagirl, a purple-eyed Atlantean who was jettisoned from Atlantis as a baby because purple eyes indicate an Atlnatean who is a throw-back to the time before the oceans drank Atlantis. Not long after, Aqualad made his debut but rather from not being able to survive underwater he was afraid of fish.

* FreudianExcuse: Mera's current rendition is the poster girl for the trope, being raised since birth solely for enacting her father's revenge on Atlantis, then rejected upon falling in love with the then-current king.
** Some renditions of Ocean Master tinge CainAndAbel with this trope, having Ocean Master direct some anger to Atlan.
** Also, in the same renditions (where Aquaman is the full-Atlantean son of the Atlantean sorcerer Atlan and the Atlantean princess Atlanna) being absent from the entire Orin's life strained the relationship between son and father.
** For the same reason Koryak, the unknown illegitimate son of Aquaman and taken back with his father only as a young adult, was always mistrustful and angry towards his absentee father.

Aquaman (a.k.a. Arthur Curry a.k.a. Orin) is a Creator/DCComics {{Superhero}} with water-based powers. He's probably [[InkStainAdaptation best known for his]] ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' appearances, the [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway lame nature]] of that version's powers and the fact that he is in practically every episode, whether this makes sense or not ("What's that? Trouble in the desert? Come on team, we haven't a moment to lose! And let's bring Aquaman with us; his ability to breathe underwater and talk to fish are ''sure'' to be useful there!"). [[ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman In essence, having him take part in anything whatsoever was sort of the super-powered equivalent to pity sex.]]

** Remember all the ''Superfriends'' jokes? During Geoff Johns' run, it's revealed that they exist even in-universe. And '''everyone''' in the DC Universe feels entitled to openly berate the "guy who speaks with fishes", married to "Aquawoman/Aquawife" ([[Film/{{Splash}} who may be a mermaid who turns into a woman when dry]]), broke because of a lack of employment, wearing a ridiculous shirt and useless if compared with the rest of the League. This despite, as mentioned elsewhere, the ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' portrayal being the exception to the rule and the character actually being quite {{Badass}}.
