Added DiffLines:

* {{Fanservice}}: Given that all the mermaids are all very, very pretty young women, and both of the mermen are handsome hunks, who all often showcase their very toned and well built bodies as merpeople this applies. Even their human friends, like Cam, Carly, David and Chris, are all very attractive as well.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceMeanAndInBetween: The dynamic between the Mako Mermaids...
** Sirena as the Nice, Nixie as the Mean and Lyla as the In-Between.
** Sirena as the Nice, Ondina as the Mean and Mimmi as the In-Between.
** Mimmi as the Nice, Ondina as the Mean and Wei Lan as the In-Between.


* OrganicBra: In mermaid form, the girls have scales in exactly the same pattern as a bra, complete with straps. The merman on the other hand only have scales on their tail.

Added DiffLines:

** This trope is only used in this episode with all other natural-born mermaids getting their legs offscreen and their first scenes with legs having them already fully clothed.[[note]] For good reason in one case, as the mermaid in question was only about 10 years old. [[/note]]


* DawsonCasting: Compared to [[Series/H2OJustAddWater H2O:Just Add Water]] all the main characters look older (and much fitter) despite supposed to be the same age as the characters in the original series. When [[spoiler:Rikki]] appears in the season finale, even though it's supposed to happen around 5-10 years after the parent series' season finale, she looks barely older than the current main characters.


* BookcasePassage: In the third episode the girls find one in Principal Rita's home that leads to a secret passage to the sea.

** Evie using her moon ring to automate the domestic chores is similar to a scene from [[Series/AlienSurfGirls Lightning Point]] where Zoey uses her Luminan powers to do the same thing. In both cases, frustrated with how long it is taking, they decide to use an turboboost and naturally, it goes horribly wrong. (See also, of course, the Sorceror's Apprentice sequence in ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''.)
** Wishful Thinking is an episode-long reference to [[Series/AlienSurfGirls Lightning Point]]. They even reuse one of the stock photo props.

Added DiffLines:

* CallBack: '''"Trust Issues"''' as the title suggests brings up Ondina's trust issues formed after Erik betrayed her, and projecting them on to Mimmi and Chris.

* SecretKeeper: Cam is this for Zac. It's particularly hard for him to be so, because Zac initially wants to reveal his powers and be a superhero. [[spoiler:Lyla manipulates events so the mermaids also become this for Zac, but they already knew he was a merman]].

[[spoiler:Lyla manipulates events so the mermaids also become this for Zac, but they already knew he was a merman]]. Later, Evie becomes one as well, before becoming a Mermaid herself, followed by Carly, David and Chris learning their friends secrets as well.

Added DiffLines:

* DeathGlare: Erik began delivering these towards the heroes by the end of Season 2, including a downright spine tingling one towards Carly after she splashed him from behind to rescue Cam from his telekinesis.


* AntiVillain: Erik, he does some pretty messed up shit to Zac and the Mermaids, [[spoiler: but he was doing what he believed to be for the greater good for his race, nor was he spurred by malice, and never realized just how much danger he was putting all of the Mako pod in.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllMyFault: Weilan blames herself for Evie [[spoiler: losing her tail to the dragon]] yet Evie assures her it isn't anybody's fault, and that she has every intention of remaining friends with the Mermaids, [[spoiler: and reminds them that she's an excellent free diver, meaning they can all still swim together whenever they want to.]]


* ContinuityDrift: It's clearly in the same universe with [[Series/H2OJustAddWater]], and yet...
** In the first series there is a fairly ordinary, if surprising to the unwary, aboveground entrance to the Moon Pool chamber. It is open at all times. In [[Series/MakoMermaidsAnH2OAdventure the second series]] the mermaids start out believing that there is no aboveground entrance. They learn better when the magic of the full Moon allows Zac (and, later, Cam) to fall through the roof of the cave and into the pool, but still without leaving any visible hole. For even more drift, in the last few episodes of the series, Rikki (from H2O) "visits" and says the cave hasn't changed from when she knew it, despite the absence of the old "sliding" entrance.
** Mako Island is the home of the "Mako pod" in [[Series/MakoMermaidsAnH2OAdventure Mermaids]], and it is established that the pod has been in the area for some time. But somehow the pod never encountered Emma, Cleo, Rikki, or Bella, despite both group's frequent visits to the island and to the Moon Pool.

** Also, Season 3 of both shows begins with the mermaids being attacked by magical water. In [[Series/H2OJustAddWater the old show]] it's a "water tentacle", in [[Series/MakoMermaidsAnH2OAdventure Mermaids]] it's a "water dragon". Both seasons end with their threats resolved in a highly positive way.
