About the AUEdit
This AU was formed through fanart of the Big Four (most commonly Jack and Hiccup) depicting them as merfolk or humans interacting with merfolk. Like its namesake, most writers and artists use Disney's The Little Mermaid as a template, but this is not required.
For whatever reason, this AU is most often used as a scenario for the pairing Hijack.
The Big FourEdit
As a merman, Hiccup is often portrayed as having a prosthetic tail fin, as a counter part for his leg. His tail is often green in color. Toothless is most often portrayed as a shark, dolphin or orca. Hiccup would most likely have the same basic idea as he did on Berk just underwater. The dragons are often portrayed as existing sea animals, extinct sea animals or mythological sea animals. He is also portrayed as Eric from The Little Mermaid as Merida is portrayed as Ariel, because of the Mericcup pairing.
She is often portrayed as a mermaid, but when it comes to The Little Mermaid she is portrayed as Ariel, because of her hair, as Hiccup or Jack would be portrayed as Eric, because of the Mericcup and Jarida pairings.
She is also portrayed as Ariel from The Little Mermaid as Jack is portrayed as Eric, because of the Jackunzel pairing.
Extra Characters Edit
She is portrayed as an average mermaid or as Ariel from The Little Mermaid, because of her hair.
Moana's love for the ocean easily portrays her as an average mermaid or as Ariel from The Little Mermaid, as they both have dreams to explore the world beyond their home and a father that wants to keep his daughter safe. She can also be portrayed as Melody from The Little Mermaid 2, as they both have dreams that involve the sea. Her necklace can serve as Melody's magical locket, for its shell like design and was given to her by a grandparent.
Maui is seen as an average merman with a shark tailfin, due to his Fish Hook acting up and turning the top part of his body into a shark's head and keeping the bottom part human; and vice versa.
In the Guardians of Childhood book series, Sandy shares his home realm with merfolk.
Falling in love a human and having a protective single father heavily portrays Mavis as Ariel from The Little Mermaid. While being a vampire could also make her a black tailed mermaid, since there are stories about mermaids taking the lives of sailors by drowning them and with both being "creatures" that exist in stories; as well as having a human-like appearance (even when it is only the top part for mermaids and with vampires having paler skin).
