Flotsam & Jetsam

Flotsam & Jetsam are two moray eel villains that serve Ursula in the animated Disney film The Little Mermaid.

Character DescriptionEdit

Twin fishes with dark thoughts and evil smiles, Flotsam & Jetsam are two moray eels that acted as minions for Ursula. They followed every order they were given with skill and were treated by Ursula as they were her children. Despite her love and perfect use for them, Flotsam and Jetsam were both killed by the trident on the final battle against Ursula. With their boss mourning over the two henchmen, she showed her aggressiveness by trying to finish Prince Eric. To this day, Flotsam and Jetsam have become one of Disney's most darkest henchmen. Unlike other henchmen such as Cruella's or Hades', the two eels were not comical in any way and were intelligent along with their dark nature.

In Super Smash Disney BrothersEdit

Flotsam & Jetsam both appear as playable unlockable characters from The Little Mermaid series. They fight almost exactly like the Ice Climbers. They are quick characters that levitate above the ground and were resized a bit in order to be fit for SSDB. They are also quite powerful but are easy to send flying. Their Neutral Special is to shoot black mist. Their Side Special is to try and latch onto an enemy. Their Up Special is to jet themselves upwards. Their Down Special is to circle around in the ground to create a typhoon.

Their in-game description here:


"The two moray eel lackeys from Ursula join the fray to chomp everything on their way! Watch out! Or else you'll end up swept away with their typhoon attack or blinded by their black mist attack!"


Both eels are quite fast in the ground. They levitate off the ground instead of walking. They were also resized to fit better in the fighting game. They are powerful attackers but can be launched away easily if let unguarded.
