** 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!

!![[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.

* Ariel's (first) transformation into a human is horrifying. She is voiceless at this point, but her body is writhing in visible torment as something happens to her insides. Then her tail is ''ripped'' in two and hangs in shreds before two more flashes of magic turn the raw remainders into legs. ''Then'' she nearly drowns right there and then.

** 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...

* 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.

* The whole concept of Ursula disguising herself as a shapely young woman is pretty unsettling.unsettling, especially when she uses her disguise to hypnotize Prince Eric into doing what she wants.



** 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.

* 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.

** During the song, "Poor, Unfortunate Souls", when Ursula sings, "It's she who holds her tongue who gets her man", she tosses a ''tongue'' into the cauldron. Easily missed, if you assume that it's something else.
