* The males of one underwater world in ''EndlessFrontier'' are fishmen. The females are mermaids. Incredibly stacked mermaids. Turns out, much to Haken's humiliation, the females ''like'' scales on their men.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'' has four heroes that are examples of this trope.
** Silithice the Naga Siren is a Slithereen (sort of an eel-mermaid with an anglerfish-like lure) with a SirenSong and illusion-making abilities, who was exiled by her [[HonorBeforeReason honourbound]] people for losing a single piece of treasure in their undersea vaults.
** Slardar is of the same species as Naga Siren, but much uglier. He is also a guardian of undersea treasure, using his lure light to search for intruders, sees faults in their armor, and draw them to their doom.
** Slark is a small, vaguely shark-like fellow who spent most of his life in cutthroat [[TheAlcatraz Dark Reef Prison]] and is now its only escapee. His gameplay reflects his escape artist nature, being able to slip out of many a sticky situation if not dealt with appropriately.
** Tidehunter is a hulking anthropomorphic SeaMonster who worships an EldritchAbomination called Maelrawn the Tentacular. His most notable traits are his burning hatred for [[FourStarBadass Admiral Kunkka]] as well as his ability to summon Maelrawn when needed.

* The "aquatic ape" hypothesis posits that humans evolved from these, with at least one of our primate ancestors having been an amphibious creature that later re-adapted to land. The evidence for it is scant, coming down mostly to evolutionary traits that it argues are better explained by the sea than the savanna, with little in the way of fossil evidence for it. Still, it has inspired a number of writers, including the creators of Creator/AnimalPlanet's mermaid {{mockumentar|y}}ies.

Added DiffLines:

* The Draug in ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' are former Vikings who, while fighting in their North American Vinland outposts, got mutated by [[TheCorruption the Filth]], which turned them into creatures based on the ''draugr'' of Myth/NorseMythology. They have been prowling the seas ever since, responsible for many stories of abandoned {{ghost ship}}s whose crews disappeared without a trace. The story involves them attacking [[LovecraftCountry an island off the coast of Maine]], [[ZombieApocalypse zombifying most of the locals]] in order to turn them into more Draug.

* The Gillmen from ''VideoGame/XComTerrorFromTheDeep'', which were inspired by the Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon. These guys makes Goombas look like Brock Lesnar. More dangerous are Lobstermen: Their thick armor makes them impervious to gunfire, forcing you to get in melee range so they can claw you to death.

* The ''Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon'' (a.k.a. the Gill-Man), pictured above, is probably the most famous([[FountainOfExpies and imitated]]) Fish Person, and certainly the TropeCodifier for movies. He starred in three films -- the self-titled first movie and its sequels ''Film/RevengeOfTheCreature'' and ''Film/TheCreatureWalksAmongUs''. He's become one of the Franchise/UniversalHorror monsters, allowing him to co-star in [[SpinOff Spin-Offs]] and [[TheMerch merchandise]] with {{Dracula}}, FrankensteinsMonster and [[Film/TheMummy1932 The Mummy]], among others.
