* ReplacementScrappy: For some fans Morgana for being a very blatant SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute of Ursula and her RememberTheNewGuy's status in the movie. In fact, others believe that the only reason Morgana was created is that Pat Carroll wanted to return for the sequel despite Ursula being long dead. The hate's died down due to Morgana's own threat factor, as well as the fact that there's a strong implication of ParentalFavoritism in regards to her family life, giving her a bit more to her than someone like [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDameII Sarousch]].

** Tip is voiced by Creator/MaxCasella, whose most well known role is [[VideoGame/JakAndDaxter Daxter]]. A bit later, he'd go on to voice [[Disney/{{Dinosaur}} Zini]].

** For what faults it has, the movie does rectify one of the complaints levied at the original film, that being Ariel's decision to leave her home and family behind to marry a man she just met three days ago, and that this was treated as an acceptable thing to do. While Melody does demolish the wall that kept her family divided for so long, when presented with the same choice her mother was, her decision is to remain on land as a human, where her life, her parents, and her responsibilities ultimately are (though since she explicitly chose to TakeAThirdOption, Melody in all likelihood will presumably spend the rest of her life switching back and forth from human to mermaid). The movie also shows that Ariel and her family kept in contact, and that it was fully possible for Ariel to turn back into a mermaid if she wanted to go home.

* {{Fanon}}: The idea that Triton enchants Melody's locket to allow her to [[VoluntaryShapeshifting transform into a mermaid at will]] is rather popular for Fanfics set after the movie as is the idea that Melody ultimately does end up moving to Atlantica permanently as an adult.

* {{Narm}}: Within the first couple minutes, Morgana crashes the heroes' party and abducts Melody. Sebastian's reaction is simply to shout "Ursula's crazy sister!" Not only does this forced exposition kill the drama a little bit, what with the InherentlyFunnyWords coming out of his mouth, but it more or less feels like the writers were outright admitting that Morgana's more or less a discount version of her sister. It's narm because this is meant to be a dramatic scene, what with Morgana, you know, ''kidnapping a baby and almost feeding it to a shark.''


Added DiffLines:

* ToughActToFollow: Itís a sequel to one of the most popular and beloved animated Disney films of all time. Even if it hadnít been released direct-to-video and had more of a budget behind it, it wouldíve had an uphill climb in order to try and overtake the original.


* ContestedSequel: One of the most divisive DirectToVideo {{sequel}}s of Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon. People either enjoy it for being a fun movie, or detest it for being a watered down version of the original.

On the other hand, itís also very derivative, borrowing so many plot points and concepts from the first film and others that it has difficulty standing out as its own entity.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "For A Moment", a DistantDuet between Ariel and Melody. Ariel's wish that she had shared her heritage with her daughter blends with Melody's sheer joy at being a mermaid. Both Jodie Benson and Tara Strong sing it beautifully.

* {{Sequelitis}}: This movie was viewed in this way by fans of the first film, especially in the first years after its premiere. Now it's mostly a BrokenBase case.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: While the film's quality is up for debate, Tara Strong puts so much effort in that she's near-universally loved in the part of Melody - even by people who dislike the rest of the movie.
