Princess Aquata is a
TLM Aquata
mermaid who first appeared in The Little Mermaid (film). She later appeared in the TV series, including The Little Mermaid II, and The Little Mermaid III.


In the early media, Aquata is the oldest daughter of King Triton and Queen Athena. Aquata has a coral blue tail and wears a matching seashell bikini top. She has brown eyes and brown hair with curly bangs that is worn in a ponytail tied up with a band of white pearls, but this is only in the prequel movie since in the main movie, the books and toyline, all of the mermaid sisters have blue eyes. In the broadway musical, she is portrayed by Kay Trinidad with green hair and a pink spiral shell bikini top. Her name means "watery" in Latin.

In extension media released from 1989 onwards, she is the eldest daughter of King Triton and thus is likely  the next in line to the Atlantican throne. However, in the prequel film, she is said to be the fourth oldest, with Attina  being described as the oldest, which is the reverse of the main movie and books.


Her personality is not well-defined until her appearance in books and comics following the movie. In the books, she is very good at dancing and has studied ballet. However in The Little Mermaid 3 : Ariel's Beginning, it is stated that she danced like "a spastic piece of kelp". She also likes her favorite toy, Mr. Fuzzyfinkle, the pink plush seahorse with purple eyes. In the books, she considers herself ready to be Queen.
