*** In the sequel, Ariel's daughter Melody makes a deal with Morgana (who is unbeknownst to her, evil,) in exchange for King Triton's trident. Unfortunately, due to Ariel keeping Melody ignorant of her merfolk heritage, Morgana takes advantage of Melody's ignorance while convincing the latter to give King Triton's trident to her rather than Ariel. Due to her repressed anger at her mother for lying to her, Melody hands Morgana the trident, and regrets the decision later when Morgana reveals her true colors.

** While the voice-for-legs exchange did happen in the original Andersen tale (albeit, a little more gruesomely; the witch cut out her tongue), the Deal With The Devil significance was added by Disney. Andersen's original story was probably based on the myth of the Undine, a female water spirit who does not have a soul but can gain one by marrying a mortal man (and maybe bearing his child as well, depending on the version). This makes the original story a reversal of the trope, in a way. The Little Mermaid gives up a 300-year life expectancy not just for a chance at love, but also the chance to gain an immortal soul.

* In [[DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney's version]] of the ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' story, both Hercules and Megara make deals with Hades. Megara makes her deal before the movie begins, in which she pledges herself to Hades's service in exchange for restoring her boyfriend to life. Hades follows through, but the guy dumps Megara for someone else. Later, Hercules pledges a deal with Hades to give up his divine strength for 24 hours, and in exchange, Megara is freed from his service, and Hades must swear that she'll be safe from any harm. Hades takes the deal, which then becomes broken Meg [[spoiler: pushes Hercules out of the way of a falling column, getting crushed underneath it herself. As Hades swore she must not come to any harm, the deal is broken and Hercules gets his strength back.]]

* In [[DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney's version]] of the ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' story, Herc makes a deal with Hades to save Meg (who made a similar deal to save her boyfriend) by giving up his divine strength for 24 hours. Disney messed up in regard to Greek mythology because 1) Hades has no need to buy or barter for a soul, as all souls ultimately belong to him ''anyway'' and 2) Hades is unique amongst the Greek pantheon in that he's consistently one of the few gods to deal with humans fairly and honestly, with no intention of screwing them over. See EverybodyHatesHades for more information.
** Ah, but at the same time, Hercules was not purely mortal, and would need to barter with him to get his soul. For if/when he died, he would go to Olympus, not the Underworld. Not to mention, the other gods were dicks, it's somewhat [[JustifiedTrope Justified.]]
