* During the first section of the [[IWantSong Part of Your World Reprise]], Ariel makes some changes to the lyrics so it's a love song about her and Eric, and she gets ''really'' intimate with the unconscious prince, even caressing his face.



** Not only that, but in earlier versions of the film (before more CensorShadow was added to the scene), if you brightened that blink-and-miss-it shot, you'll see that they actually drew a buttcrack on Ariel too.

* "Under the Sea" also features the line "Darling, it's better down where it's wetter". Sure, Sebastian is referring to the bottom of the sea, but taken out of context...

* Ariel being pretty clearly completely naked from the waist down for at least five minutes of the movie after she gets her legs. Neither she or the others seems to think much of it, until Scuttle tells her that the first thing she needs to do is ''dress'' like a human, helps her put a rag over her body, then [[CovertPervert whistles loudly and tells her how great she looks]]. Now, imagine how that line would've sounded before she covered herself up...

* Milder example in the French version: to translate Ursula's line "They come floating to my cauldrons, crying SPELLS, URSULA PLEASE !", the translators put "Elles débarquent dans me chaudrons en brayant URSULA SAUVE-NOUS !". It literally means "They turn up in my cauldrons, yelling URSULA, SAVE US!", but both the words used for "turning up" and "yelling" are sexual slang terms that aren't very likely to be used in a Disney movie otherwise.

** Ursula's interactions with Ariel in general throughout the movie [[UptoEleven (but ESPECIALLY during Poor Unfortunate Souls)]] gives off some really [[NoYay creepy]] vibes, particularly her complete disregard for Ariel's personal space.

* Ignoring the FantasticRacism, King Triton destroying Ariel's grotto of human treasures in order to make her stay away from humans all but qualifies as emotional abuse and psychological blackmail. Even by Disney's standards, that's pretty dark.
* The priest getting an erection. Enough said. According to Disney, nobody realized this one when they were animating the scene, but it's practically {{Fanon}} by now. The animation in question has been edited out of the Blu-Ray release.
* Two surprisingly gory moments at the end of the movie. Ursula accidentally blasts Flotsam and Jetsam into [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath tiny pieces including visible bits of bone and a missing, floating eyeball]]. And then Eric ends up brutally impaling Ursula with the front of a derelict ship, causing her to explode and sending tiny pieces of her sinking down to the depths. LudicrousGibs in a Disney movie. Yikes.

* The "Under the Sea" musical number briefly features a [[ModernMinstrelsey "blackfish"]] that looks more like it came from a racist 1930s cartoon rather than an animated movie made in the late 1989s.
* During the first section of the [[IWantSong Part of Your World Reprise]], Ariel makes some changes to the lyrics so its a love song about her and Eric, and she gets ''really'' intimate with the unconcious prince, even caressing his face.

* After Ursula sing's the line, "But on the whole I've been a saint, to those poor unfortunate souls!" She uses the plant she first wore as a shawl to vigorously rub her back, shaking her chest [[MaleGaze as the camera zooms in on it]]. "Saint" is not the word to be used, in more ways than one.

** More specifically, Ariel emerges from the water in a dramatic fashion where she surfaces in massive splash of water,throwing her head back in a way that flips her hair back and flinging water in a way that really draws attention, [[BoobsandButtpose and bends her body in a way that pushes out her breasts and butt]].In addition,when she's done gasping for breath,it zooms out to reveal that she rose so far above the water that her naked human waist is visible,and she stays in this pose for a few more seconds before sinking back underwater in exhaustion.Due to how the water was too deep to stand in,how unlikely it is that your hips could shoot above deep water,how its even less likely that you could hold that pose for that long in deep water,and that no other instance of Ariel surfacing is this flashy or distracting, it is reasonable to assume that Ariel's first breath was designed with RuleofSexy in mind.
