if Bella wouldn't of gone into the cave by herself she would of had only one of the powers she has like gelidkinesis but not all. Like Charlotte Watsford she went into the water by herself and got all three power so it proves the more people in the moon pool or cave the less powers in other words for example if only Cleo and Emma went into the moon pool together one of them would of gotten the power of Rikki (22.214.171.124 22:33, April 16, 2012 (UTC))
Why does Cleo's explanation of power (the paragraph on her power) doesn't have no weakness but Emma's, ect does. This no weakness thing makes people think of Cleo as the super mermaid when they are all the same Cleo does anyway have weaknesses for example when there is no water around, no hands loose (when tied up. I think that should be edited since Cleo is not a super mermaid there all strong in there own way.
- I think the weaknesses are mainly mentioned to prevent people thinking Emma can throw ice shards or Rikki could do steam blasts.--KillerZ 20:58, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
Where do born/natural mermaids came from?
- It's unknown thus far. Maybe Mako Mermaids will explain some of it. --KillerZ (talk) 10:25, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
- Also, is a Trident a merpeople magic? Or it can only be handled by a merman rather than a mermaid.
- Actually, according to the first 13 episodes, only mermen can use it, as seen when Lyla tried to take it from him, causing it to shoot electricity and push all 4 of them out of the portal. Rita says that a pod of mermen carrying (a trident or many tridents) ruled the world, and mermaids from "all 5 seas" had to use their magic together to stop them, hiding the trident in the portal it is now. (until Zac shows it to his friend in photos).
This Needs an Update
In Mako Mermaids, Lyla has been shown to have Invisibility. Also, in the epsiode: Blizzard, Lyla, Sirena, Nixie, and Zac had an allergi reaction to snow called Snow Rash. Rita explained this to the girls because they were Southern Mermaids, not used to cold temperature. It has been implied that merpeople do have reproductive systems similar to fish, as it is implied that merpeople atch from eggs, since Nixie and Sirena have been friends "since they were hatchlings". The merpeople page HAS to be updated.
I though mermaids and mermen are two different species according to the show. They never really used the term "merpeople" and they refer mermaids as half woman half fish while mermen as half man half fish. Also mermaids and merman have different characteristics, mermaids have orange tail while mermen have blue tail and mermaids can't bear the trident and drains their life force while mermen can and it makes them stronger instead of draining them, and that mermaids and mermen have war between them before so it is unlikely they are the same species but more would be revealed in the next season
Another Mermaid Movie
If anyone here is looking for a cute, nice mermaid movie to watch, I recommend the movie Aquamarine. I personally love the movie. Even though it's a few years old, it's still one of my favorites and I've loved it since childhood. Here's the link to the Aquamarine wiki site if anyone here wants to visit it :) .
I wonder if the children of one or two transformed merpeople are born mermaids and mermen?
Mermaid Pod Reproduction? (Not Dirty)
I ust realized something: How would mermaids reproduce? I'm sensing they'd reproduce like either dolphins or other large fish (since they are implied to lay eggs, but have the tail formation of marine mammals, plus scales) - if they could. Mermen haven't been around (as far as we know) for a very long time, or at least have been separated from mermaids. So, that raises the question: who do they reproduce with, if not mermen? I don't think they'd reproduce with other fish, so I'm guessing that natural mermaids may have developed a way to reproduce like the Asari in Mass Effect, where there is only one "gender", female.
I wrote a theory on this in my fic that I had put up. Here's what I got:
The blue moon (second blue moon in a month), is commonly when mermaids lay their eggs. Mermaids had used the magic of the full moon to breed other mermaids. Mermaids would go to the pools and caves during the mating moon and lay eggs. After six full moons the eggs would hatch and a mermaids would appear. The magic of the full moon created the human upper halves and gold colored fish have fertilized the eggs to have a tail.
