* Spoofed by ''WebVideo/HardlyWorking'' when Dan introduces everyone to his fiance, except the problem is [[InvertedTrope inverted]] because she's a ''maidmer'' with a fish head and a human lower body. The others point out that the InterspeciesRomance implications of this variation only makes it worse.

* Played with in a Franchise/HarryPotter fanfic called ''[[http://www.witchfics.org/anna/jewel/index.html Jewel of the Nile]]'' in which a couple of characters don polymorphing mer-costumes before splashing about and indulging in heavy makeout sessions underwater.
