* The seatrolls of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' look exactly the same as any other troll except for having fins attached to their cheeks. (Fans sometimes depict the fins as [[UnusualEars coming out of their ears]] instead.)

* The people of Shioshishio in ''Anime/NagiAsuALullInTheSea'' look exactly like regular humans except for ocean-blue eyes and a nearly-invisible scaly skin coating that allows them to breathe underwater. They can breathe out of water equally well, but have to periodically soak in seawater so their skin doesn't dry out. Despite, or perhaps ''because'', the mer-people and land-dwellers look so similar, FantasticRacism abounds in both directions.

* The people of Shioshishio in ''Anime/NagiAsuALullInTheSea'', are no different from the land dwellers, except an extra covering that they need to periodically soak with seawater, so they wouldn't dry up.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/{{Cavewoman}}: Deep Water'', Meriem fights an apparently human merwoman (albeit one with an unusual skin tone if the cover is to be believed). Her exact motivations are murky, and a rematch in the future seems likely.

* Naiads in TheWitcher. They walk literally naked (yes, right in the game, with all the details), have greenish skin and dark green hair (yes, pubic hair too), but otherwise absolutely human. Dryads and Lady of the Lake closely resemble them in appearance, except that Lady's best parts are [[GodivaHair covered with her long hair]].

* [[Manga/ShinryakuIkaMusume Squid Girl]], arguably, since when she isn't manipulating things with her tentacles, she appears to be a normal girl with a NiceHat and a weird hairstyle.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' gives us Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, parody {{Exp|y}}ies of Creator/AdamWest-era Franchise/{{Batman}} [[Series/{{Batman}} and]] ComicBook/{{Robin}}.
** The show eventually explained that they ARE normal humans. The starfish Mermaid Man wears on his face magically keeps him alive and was a gift from some friendly mermaids (ergo the name.) Likewise, Mermaid Man gave Barnacle Boy the ability to breathe water....by forcing him to ingest a bunch of barnacles.
