* In one episode, a character is able to take a human boot and transform it into a weapon, much like a gun. Now, remember how Eric loses two pairs of boots in the ocean in the first film?

* There's evidence that Ursula turning into Vanessa is just an elaborate glamour, not a physical change. The mirror reveals her true form, which wouldn't be the case if she was totally physically transformed. (If it did, every mirror would show Ariel floating in the air with a tail, and in the sequel, [[LockedOutOfTheLoop Melody]] doesn't ever notice anything unusual about Ariel's reflection.) [[EvilDetectingDog Max]] could also tell that Vanessa was bad news, probably because she still smelled like a gigantic, sopping wet octopode. If the wedding hadn't been interrupted, that would have left Eric alone with Ursula's real form, under mind control and therefore helpless, thinking he's making love to a beautiful woman while Ursula does unspeakable things to him.

** Er, does that mean that Ariel pulled off Eric's boots herself so she could [[FootFocus ogle his feet?]] No wonder they didn't show ''that'' part.

** Also note that Ursula still interferes and is ''determined'' not to let the two kiss even though she knows it probably won't work. She wants to deny Ariel even the slightest chance of success out of pure spite and making ''absolutely sure'' that nothing will stop her from ruling the seas.

** Ursula wanted to use Ariel as leverage against Triton, though, so she probably wouldn't have just let her drown for nothing. However, the other transformations we see in the series lack the [[PainfulTransformation uncomfortable]] [[NakedOnArrival aspects]] of Ariel's: Triton turned her into a human painlessly and wearing a dress conjured from nowhere, and in the sequel, Morgana transformed Melody quickly and painlessly and even gave her MagicPants, even though she was using Ursula's magic. Triton made the process painless for his daughter, Morgana manipulated Melody by being nice to her, but Ursula just wanted to terrorize and demoralize Ariel as much as possible, and deliberately made her transformation as nightmarish as she could!

** So, the lesson here is that Ursula is a bisexual drag queen pedophile rapist with incestuous tendencies towards both her brother and niece? Who ever said that Disney films were sanitized?

** Chef Louis made everything worse. Sebastian had to watch him [[OffWithHisHead decapitate]], debone, crush, [[FlayingAlive skin]], [[{{Gorn}} gut]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking rub salt into]] the fish, while singing about [[EvilTastesGood how much he loves doing it and how delicious they'll be to devour]]. ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice Then]]'' he says that the crabs are lucky they're dead, because otherwise they'd [[FateWorseThanDeath go into the boiling water]] ''alive.'' Remember that Sebastian constantly heard Triton say how humans are evil, barbaric fisheaters all the time, and now he's stumbled into a torture cellar/cannibal dungeon crewed by his worst nightmare come to life!

* The opening number, "The daughters of Triton", estabilishes Ariel as the youngest of the sisters and also the one supposedly with the most beautiful voice among them, apart from showing she has her own hobbies and forgets about her obligations. Also it mentions her 6 older sisters. This means that apart from being the youngest, which she couldn't really help, the only real thing that sets her apart from her sisters in terms of ability is her voice, since almost all her sisters have good looks. Her interest in the dryland is unique in Atlantica, or it would be if she didn't have to keep it a secret. Once she actually gets above water, however, her knowledge is proven to be lacking, though it does result in some funny scenes. (Note that the titular Little Mermaid had a large number of siblings in the original tale as well.) Not only did Ursula make sure to set a time limit that is ridiculously short, she demanded a price that 1, was essential to communication, 2, was pretty much Ariel's ''only real defining feature!''
