* The ReginaSpektor song "Mermaid" is a sideways adaptation of Creator/HansChristianAndersen's "Literature/TheLittleMermaid" set in a modern day city, and mentions that the painful stabbing feeling in her feet causes her to bleed. She claims to have sold her voice for, among other things, a bottle of gin and a bump of cocaine before [[ItMakesSenseInContext the narrative goes completely off the rails]].

** In some variations, it is possible to take a mermaid captive by stealing an item of magic thus keeping her captive. Because AbductionIsLove she will often marry the man who did this and raise a loving family. But, she will spend all her spare time trying to find it, and once found she will swim away.

* The MadeForTVMovie ''The Thirteenth Year'' has its mermaids and mermen appear as normal human children up until their 13th birthday, upon which they begin to go through a fishy puberty where they acquire a mishmash of marine animal abilities. In addition to becoming able to swim very well and hold his breath underwater for several minutes, the lead character starts to grow scales on his arms, discovers he can [[WallCrawler scale walls]] thanks to octopus powers, and discovers he can [[ShockAndAwe produce electricity]] thanks to electric eel heritage. And this is all before his legs become a fishy tail. That still doesn't explain why he swims like a dolphin rather than any normal stroke (he is on his high school swim team) before the transformation.

It also solves TheMermaidProblem in one fell swoop.
