Why are there no other half octopus mermaids? Or seal? Or dolphins, or something?
Okay, based off Ursula, we can surmise that their might be other mermaids of her kind (her sister showing up in the sequel is the only proof of this though). But if there can be mermaids that are half octopus, why aren’t there any mermaids that are half some other kind of sea creature?
In all honesty, having multiple mermaid types would have actually have been pretty cool. They’d be like different races of mermaid. Though I wonder what would happen if a seal mermaid and a shark mermaid hooked up… That’d be interesting to see.
Now, I love “The Little Mermaid”, but some diversity among the mermaids would have been nice.
Maybe since Disney’s on it’s remake binge, maybe if they remake “The Little Mermaid”, they should take this idea and add some new types of mermaids.
