* The first time Ariel meets Flotsam and Jetsam with their creepy, echoing voices. Unlike many Disney villains, they are not ineffectual at all. In fact, they are almost as creepy as Ursula herself.

In the stage version, they are even creepier with their VillainSong, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6alnctFfNA "Sweet Child"]].



** The stage version also gives her an additional villain song, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_fgRiKfN5A I Want the Good Times Back]]. What are these good times the song speaks of? Why, gleefully mutilating, murdering, and eating her subjects of course!

Its post-Broadway replacement, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6QH6OiaWcw Daddy's Little Angel]], is equally creepy, describing how she murdered her six older sisters out of jealousy.

* The shipwreck/fire scene can be pretty frightening, especially when Eric realizes that Max is still on board--the shot of the terrified dog, frantically barking, doesn't help. Then, Eric risks his life to save Max and gets caught in the ensuing explosion and would certainly have drowned had Ariel not rescued him.

* Ursula's line to Ariel and the accompanying visuals: "If he [Eric] does kiss you [Ariel] before the sun sets on the third day, you'll remain human permanently! But...if he doesn't, you turn back into a mermaid and...[[PunctuatedForEmphasis you belong...]]'''''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis to me!!!]]'''''"

* Several things about Ursula in general. She's a fairly grotesque octopus woman with pasty grayish skin. She eats live (and, as it turns out, sentient) shrimp as snacks. The entrance tunnel to her lair is carpeted with the shriveled bodies of her transformed former clients who "couldn't pay the price". She conjures a pair of wraithlike disembodied hands to forcibly thrust down Ariel's throat and extract her voice. And at the climax of the film, she [[OneWingedAngel transforms into a giant, saw-toothed version of herself with a Stygian voice]], uses the power of Triton's stolen trident to create maelstroms and raise up the rotting hulks of sunken ships, and finally is [[HoistByHisOwnPetard impaled on a spear of one of said ships, electrocuted by the lightning she causes]] and sinks, clutching the hull of the vessel with her tentacles in her death throes. Afterwards, her remains are shown slowly sinking into her lair. The directors' commentary on the Special Edition [=DVD=] noted that they probably wouldn't get away with Ursula (or Chef Louis for that matter) in a modern film.

** Speaking of visuals, just the entire sequence after Ariel signs the contract. The lighting changes dramatically from reds and golds to greens and blues with Ursula's SlasherSmile, and she begins chanting a spell over the cauldron. And then ghostly grotesque hands rise out, which basically are used as such when one reaches down into Ariel's throat to snatch up her voice. Think she ''felt'' it being physically ripped from her?

!![[Literature/TheLittleMermaid The Short Story]]
Well let's see; there's the bit where the Mermaid has her tongue cut out; the bit where she feels stabbing pain every step she takes; the bit where she's standing over her sleeping paramour with a knife ready to stab him to death so that she can drip his blood onto her feet; the bit when she commits suicide, and then the bit when she gets an extra day added to her time in Purgatory every time a child cries- like he just did after reading that frigging story.
