Prince Eric's statue was a present given to him on his 18th birthday. The statue was commissioned by Grimsby, who had hoped to be able to give it as a wedding present rather than a birthday present. However, Eric is shown to be a bit less than pleased, as he didn't want to statue to begin with, as Grimsby only wanted his boss to be married. Later, a storm sinks the ship, resulting in the statue falling to the seafloor. It is later found by Flounder who gives it to Ariel, as she had fallen in love with the prince. When King Triton discovers that Ariel not only rescued a human, but has fallen in love with him, Triton angrily destroys it with his trident along with the other collections until he regrets his actions and sadly leaves a weeping Ariel in shame. Flotsam and Jetsam later flicked part of the statue's remains in an attempt to ensure Ariel would agree to go to Ursula, after an attempt to directly suggest she goes to Ursula failed. It is presumed being rebuilt by Triton after he restored her grotto.

The same happens in Kingdom Hearts II.

Trivia

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