Heartwarming / The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

  • The family's reconciliation near the end of the movie.
    Melody: I'm sorry, mother.
    Ariel: Oh no, sweetie, we're sorry. We should've told you the truth.
    • Then Triton just comes and adds more of the heartwarmingness.
      Triton: Just like your mother.
  • In her duet with her daughter, Ariel sings that when she finds Melody, she will hold her close and sing the song of the sea with her.
    • There's also a brief moment wherein we can see Ariel in her old grotto.
    • Melody's enthusiasm over being a mermaid.
  • Ariel and Flounder reuniting after 12 years. Followed by Flounder (with no hesitation) agreeing to help his best friend find her missing daughter.
  • The ending of the movie, where the mermaids and humans unite and Melody is on her way to making lots of friends - she even offers a second chance to the kids who were rude to her at her birthday party, which they accept.
  • The entire "Down to the Sea" song that introduces Melody at her christening.
    • The first scene: You can just feel the love Ariel has for Melody.
    • Baby!Melody in general. You can't stop squealing about her cuteness.
    • Sebastian smiling warmly at baby Melody when she holds out her arms in his direction.
    • Triton creating a rainbow with his trident after seeing Melody for the first time.
  • Triton giving Melody the locket so she'll always have a part of the sea with her.
  • Even though it was short, Melody's interactions with the merboy can be described with one word: Adorkable.
