Uh, gee, Grim. It's uh...it's...it's really something.
―Eric's extremely faint praise for his statue

Prince Eric's Statue was an object in The Little Mermaid. It was a present given to Prince Eric for his 18th birthday.

Appearances[]

The Little Mermaid[]

It was commissioned by Grimsby, who had hoped to be able to give it as a wedding present rather than a birthday one. However, Eric is shown to be a bit less than pleased (as well as Max), as he did not want it to begin with, since Grimsby only wanted him to be married. Later, when a hurricane hits, the ship sinks, resulting in the statue falling to the seafloor. It is later found by Flounder who decides to place it in Ariel's Secret Grotto as a surprise present for her, as she has fallen in love with Eric. Ariel is overjoyed by this surprise until her joy is cut short when her father, King Triton, discovers her grotto. Upon discovering that Ariel not only rescued a human from drowning but has fallen in love with him, King Triton angrily destroys the statue along with the other treasures with his trident until he regrets his actions and sadly leaves Ariel weeping in shame. Flotsam and Jetsam later flick part of the statue's head in an attempt to manipulate into Ariel agreeing to go see Ursula after an attempt to directly suggest she do so fails.

Kingdom of Hearts[]

The same events happen in Kingdom Hearts II.

Trivia[]

  • In the original story by Hans Christian Andersen, the statue played a similar yet minor role. However, the mermaid had it in her grotto and was her treasured object sometime before she encountered the prince and rescued him from drowning. It also was not destroyed, either, and in fact, it played absolutely no role whatsoever in her decision to go to the sea witch to become human. However, it was nonetheless implied that it may have been modeled after the prince as the main reason she was infatuated with him was that he looked like it.
