* DoubleSubersion in the eighth ''Litereature/{{Spellsinger}}'' novel. A mermaid offers to have sex with protagonist Jon-Tom and she's got equipment that's apparently compatible with human males... but she's sufficiently similar to a fish that she sets off his seafood allergy, giving him a sneezing fit.

* A type C mermaid exists for the sake of erotic humor (insert random Playboy cartoon here if necessary), which has two legs (and naturally the stuff in-between), just with the usual fishtails-instead-of-feet. Cue C saying to A: "You don't know what you're missing!"

* Somewhere in ''Comicbook/{{Aquaman}}'' volume 3, officials in a city of mermaids complain about outsiders "swimming over their eggs".
* In MiloManara's ''City Hunter'' (not to be confused with ''Manga/CityHunter''), there's a scene where Odysseus and his friends go off to catch some mermaids. He ends up with the traditional one, and his friend gets her ugly friend, with the parts mixed.

** The same would also apply to lamia or nagas [[http://img06.deviantart.net/817d/i/2014/072/b/9/a_naga_s_lullaby_by_akaichounokoe-d7a2par.jpg]] [[labelnote:Note]]Unlike fish, snakes do have private part openings called cloacas (which are towards the end of their tails) and some species of snakes do bare live young, however, a naga (or, a similar creature, lamia) most likely wouldn't reproduce the way a human might[[/labelnote]].
