** One from the sequel that technically fits her; in the sequel, Ariel sings in her Grotto. This means that Triton either fixed everything he smashed... or went up to the human world willingly and obtained them. Either way, he's restored the pride and joy of his teenage daughter!

* It's a Creator/HansChristianAndersen story. It doesn't just jerk tears out of you, it reaches into your eye sockets and claws them out of you. Then it makes you feel guilty for crying by having the mermaid suffer another day in pain for ''every single tear a child cries''.

** Borders on VictimBlaming, actually. The story ''will'' make you cry and what do we read at the end? The mermaid will suffer another day in pain for ''every single tear a child cries''. Try to stop the waterfalls from feeling '''guilty'''.

[[AC:Ariel's Beginning]]
* Triton watching [[spoiler: the death of his beloved queen in a pirate attack]], followed by him throwing away the music box far into the sea (which Sebastian secretly witnessed).
* Sebastian getting arrested.
* Triton lying down all sad with a statue of him and Athena in the background.
** Ariel does the exact same thing in her room, and decides to slip out as a piano version of the music box tune plays.
* Ariel finding the music box and remembering her mother.
-->'''Sebastian:''' When your mother died, the whole kingdom was heartbroken. The heart that never healed... was your father's.
-->'''Ariel:''' It's so sad... He's forgotten what it's like to be happy.
* Triton's heartbroken singing when he thinks Ariel is dead and cradles her in his arms.
* The line that makes Triton realise that, maybe, things are a bit wrong:
-->'''Ariel:''' I may not remember my mother... but I know she wouldn't have wanted ''this!''

Added DiffLines:

* Right after said ending, the narrator attempts to dry everyone's tears by stating that Marina [[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence gained a soul and ascended to Heaven]], unlike the short story, where her soul will be stuck in limbo for 300 years. Slightly reassuring, but it doesn't change the fact that Marina had friends and family who loved her dearly and have lost her.

[[AC:Return to the Sea]]
* Ariel finding out Melody ran away.
* This scene from the beginning.
-->'''Ariel:''' This is the only way. Melody can't know anything about merpeople or Atlantica...or even ''you'', Daddy.
* The image of Melody being changed back into a human while in the cave and nearly drowning as a result.
* Melody being humiliated at her birthday party, calling herself the princess of disaster, and when she hears the other kids talking meanly about her. Poor girl.
