** In the sequel, ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidII'', the characters Tip and Dash, who play a Penguin and a Walrus respectively, invoke this trope as they seemingly suffer no problems underwater, [[SuperNotDrowningSkills despite being air breathers]]. This goes down as far as them diving down with Melody to Atlantica, where the merpeople are confused at the sight of them, a merboy even asking "Was that a penguin?"
