  • Look, about your edit to the background section... I find it unlikely that the trident had no ability to vaporize pure humans from the start. One key factor to that bit is the fact that in the original movie, King Triton hated humans, hated them enough that he would have much rather they drowned than be saved by his daughter, or any merperson for that matter (not to mention had a very extreme non-surfacing rule that common sense would indicate that as long as they were far enough away from ships to be unable to be sighted, and make no mistake, merpeople could see them coming before we could, they could safely surface). I don't think a guy like that would just not have his personal weapon be rendered incapable of killing humans directly, especially when he was just a step away from becoming Judge Claude Frollo or even Zamasu from Dragon Ball Super. Besides, the original movie had him explicitly destroying human objects, which clearly aren't of underwater origin, so if he could do that, it's pretty obvious humans could be destroyed by its rays as well.

    If anything, it's more likely that limitation was implemented by him later on when Ariel and Eric married, probably as penance for his jerkish decision to blow up Ariel's grotto and to temper his negative views on humanity.

    • First of all, objects, particularly human objects, are not living things, second of all, it was never confirmed or mentioned in the original film that the trident's powers has any direct effect on humans, also, Morgana has stated in The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea, that the trident's powers has no direct effect on pure-blooded humans.

      They're still not of underwater origin, either.

      And as far as never confirmed, considering that Ariel had just attacked Ursula when the latter merely implied that she was going to blow Eric to smithereens (leading directly to Flotsam and Jetsam's death) rather than, say, doing what Jacques Clouseau did when Sonia tried to destroy what she thought was the Pink Panther diamond (ie, goad her into doing it knowing full well Eric won't actually be affected by it), it's pretty clearly implied that the Trident can in fact harm humans in the original movie. Use your head, considering Ariel is the daughter of the guy who wields the trident, she'd naturally know how the trident works, and most certainly would have been aware of Eric not being affected by its rays. And that's not even getting into how Ursula literally lusted after the Trident's power since at least her exile if not even before that, and someone who lusts after it would most certainly make some effort to know its full capabilities and weaknesses. It would come across as EXCEPTIONALLY stupid of Ursula, given just how lustful she is of the trident, to overlook that detail. And if Morgana, who at the very least lusted after the trident just as much as her deceased sister, knew of this, Ursula most certainly would have known about it ESPECIALLY if we are to assume that limitation was in the original film.

      And either way, do you REALLY think King Triton, who in the first movie was just a step away from committing genocide on humanity based on how he acted for most of the film (for goodness sakes, when Ariel pointed out that Eric would have drowned if she didn't save him, Triton blew her off by saying "one less human to worry about" and then said that he didn't need to know them as they were "all the same"), would actually have his personal firearm not be able to have any direct effect on pure-blooded humans? I know if I had Triton's level of Misanthropy during the original movie, I would have made darn sure to have my Trident's powers actually HAVE a direct effect on pure-blooded humans.

      The only real explanation that doesn't break canon at all, even if admittedly speculative, is that Triton modified the trident after the events of the original movie, as a symbolic way of making peace with humans, maybe also as penance for his jerkish actions to his daughter like what happened with the grotto. As far as how Morgana would even know of this, probably the same way she found out about Melody entering the sea, because her minions observed Triton illicitly.

  • No blank sections. When you plan to include some contents underneath then you can add in new sections, not before. Don't expect others to do it for you.

  • I prefer it as just "The Forces". Nothing too technical or over detailed. Keep it simple.

  • The extra comma before "and" is standard in US litrature. As this is a US wiki it must be written in US litrature and spelling.

  • I don't want anymore of this "Although he was not quite as powerful as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader at his peak" on the articles. This hardly seems relevant, and I am removing these from the articles. The only comparison that needs to be noted are on the Anakin/Vader's page.

    • This is not the Star Wars Wiki, this is Disney Wiki. The contents, especially powers and abilities, have been overdone. They need to be cut down to be simplified. That's the approach nowadays.

      Not all Jedi and Sith are strong with the Force; as is mentioned in the Star Wars Wiki of the novels and film/animate series continuity, there are average level Force-users who are weaker compared to other Force-users; such as Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi respectively.

      These sentences were not copy from the Star Wars wiki, as i wrote them some of the sentences myself, as well as the fact that other editors will be sentences as well, but they were not copy from the Star Wars wiki.

  • Operep, can you block Doomlurker on both of those wikias. He blocked me on them both. If you can’t, would you find someone else who can block anyone?
