** Consider the polyps in Ursula's garden for a moment. They went to her for help, and now are rooted in the ocean floor forever (at least, until Ursula's death), crying out and attempting to scare off more potential victims. How long have some of them been there? Do they continue to age in their reduced state? And imagine what their families and friends must have thought when they never returned...

We already covered that.
* While not especially ''horrifying'', the fact that Ariel is only 16 throughout the movie is pretty weird.

* Several things about Ursula. 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]] and sinks, clutching the hull of the vessel with her tentacles in her death throes. The directors' commentary on the Special Edition [=DVD=] noted that they probably wouldn't get away with Chef Louis (or Ursula) in a modern film. [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking Also, she has a great singing voice]].

* The whole concept of Ursula disguising herself as a shapely young woman is pretty unsettling.

** Let's be honest here, just Triton being angry is terrifying by itself. * Sebastian seeing the cooked seafood, ending with a dramatic sting on the stuffed crab. * 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.

*Eric under Vanessa/Ursula's trance is pretty disturbing, especially with his eyes glowing bright yellow and sounding completely monotone without any attitude or feeling in his voice.

Changed 'will' to 'am going to' (previous version was a mis-quote)
-->"So help me, Ariel, I ''will'' get through to you. And if this is the only way...'''''so be it.'''''

* Triton destroying the grotto and taking all of Ariel's treasures and trinkets with it.

* 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!!!]]'''''"

* Ursula, while not a good character, was sane and composed during most of the film. However, when she transforms into Vanessa, its implied that she lost quite a bit of sanity (to the point of becoming a borderline AxCrazy) when turning into her, as she talks to her mirror in a manner similar to a schizophrenic, emits a psychotic grin when throwing a pin at a mirror's head with enough velocity to knock the mirror back, and most certainly kill a person had that been a human being, and her cackling.

fatphobia, bleh
* The skeleton of a deceased sea-monster that serves as Ursula's home was a corpse when she found it. Want to know where all that rotting flesh went? Well, there's a reason why she's so fat.
