Princess Aquata is a mermaid who first appeared in Disney's 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid.
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.
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: 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.
Aquata first appears in the "Daughters of Triton" sequence, where she is the first to be introduced. Afterwards, she appears only in cameos alongside her sisters. Almost off-screen, she asks "What's with her lately?" as Ariel passes the vanities. At the end of the film, Aquata is shown to attend Ariel's wedding to Eric.
- In the subtitles for the Little Mermaid, as well as the vocals for "Daughters of Triton", Aquata was apparently spelled and pronounced "Aquanta".
- Her eyes were blue in the first movie like the rest of her sisters.
- Her name means "watery" in Latin.
