* MythologyGag: The Ariel flashback is full of little gags. Like a reference to [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Agrabah]]. Or her being a collector, or the dance being called "Under the Sea", or Regina/Ursula saying she could be "part of his [Eric's] world"... Heck, even the way Ursula!Regina pronounces "Ariel" is the same as Sebastians. "Arr-ee-al"

* TheReveal: The Belle who has been comforting Rumple all this time is actually Pan's Shadow. Although the fact she was urging him to go back to Storybrooke with her by taking her hand (implying flight, the way the Shadow travels to and from Neverland) and there have a child with him (something she had never expressed before this but which Pan had in fact suggested) were some subtle clues something wasn't quite right.

* AdaptationalBadass: Ursula goes from a sea witch to a ''goddess'' who can even cow one of the greatest magic users in the world.



* CombatTentacles: As per Disney tradition. The mermaid Ursula gave them to herself in her image.



* DecompositeCharacter: Ursula's role as an antagonist for Ariel is given to Regina when she impersonates the goddess, and her role as sea witch is given to the mermaid who shares her name.

Added DiffLines:

* LoveAtFirstSight: So far, the only case of it in the series is the meeting between Ariel and Eric, who fall in love at a glance.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: When offering Ariel to come travel the world with him, Prince Eric is careful not to pressure her or create a QuestionableConsent situation due to his royal rank.


Added DiffLines:

* PrinceCharming: Prince Eric establishes himself as a very polite and courteous royal in the few scenes he has with Ariel.


Added DiffLines:

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Eric seems fairly active; he was on a ship the first time he met Ariel and plans to travel the world.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Eric gets very little characterization beyond being Ariel's prince.

* TooDumbToLive: Regina, for striking off on her own, even though Hook's knowledge of Neverland is what has been keeping her and the rest of the group alive. Taken UpToEleven in the flashback, where Regina decides to impersonate Ursula, who is a sea ''goddess''. The ''real'' Ursula is ''ticked'' off by this.
** YMMV on present-day Regina, given that the group of good guys have so far spent the season nearly drowning, being poisoned, walking into traps, whining about relationship issues, and in general wasting time. By teaming up with Rumple, Regina's managed to get herself a Neverland guide who a) has incredibly powerful magic and b) with her encouragement, is actually willing to do something.

* EntitledBitch: After ruining her budding romance with Eric, Regina has the ''nerve'' to ask Ariel to help her and Rumple in their plans to defeat Pan. In her defense, she clearly believed giving her back her voice, a permanent set of legs, and the chance to be with Eric after all would make up for what she'd done; counting against her however is actually thinking Ariel would believe she could trust her to keep her word this time.

* GodGuise: Regina impersonates Ursula, who is ([[EvilAllAlong believed to be]]) a benevolent deity, in order to trick Ariel. The real Ursula who was presumed to be a myth even by mermaids turns out to be very real and is very displeased at this.

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: If Ursula is really a powerful sea-goddess, why couldn't she have given Ariel back her voice? She knew what Regina did. [[SubvertedTrope However]], since [[RetCon the second half of season 4]] has her as one of the Queens of Darkness, it's likely that either she was EvilAllAlong and only pretending to be good, or that the mermaids worshiped her as beneficent in order to placate her and by the time of Ariel, this had been forgotten. (Or Ariel was just that naive; it wouldn't be the first time.) Either way, the reason she didn't help Ariel and only got involved because Regina impersonated her would be because she's a villain. (And EvilIsPetty.)
