Marina is a mermaid and the tritagonist in the series. Marina used to live in a house under the ocean, and sits on a rock during the day. But in Season 2, she decided to build a giant sand house on the island, and invited her underwater friends to her house, away from the coast of the island. Her enemy is The Manic Mermaid (character).

She is very sweet and childlike in nature. She is constantly hunted by Zig who desires to eat her. Her bodyguard/best friend Sharko, however is always there to ruin his plans. She seems blissfully unaware of Zigs intentions, as she is generally friendly whenever she sees him. She is a very good singer, but Sharko doesn't like to hear her.[1][2] She often plays volleyball or table-tennis with Sharko. Sharko isn't the only person seeking her affections. King Neptune also loves her, and tries to buy her affection with lavish gifts. A giant male manta ray tried to woo her in the episode, "The Challengers".

Although normally kind-hearted, Marina can be somewhat selfish at times, and cries when she doesn't get her way. She's also shown to have a temper when pushed to her limits.

Marina loves to try new things, and is always dabbling in different areas throughout the show. She has tried her hand at nursing (Nurse Marina), being a flight stewardess (Mermaid in the sky), and a lifeguard (Save the hyena!).

Nonetheless, Marina is compassionate, polite, and willing to do anything to help her friends in need.

References Edit

  1. Except in the episode ''Marina Superstar'' (S1E66), in her concert.
  2. Marina's singing can be very dangerous, as seen in other episodes, for instance ''Cruising'' (S01E09) and ''War of the Clones'' (S01E61). Sharko knows apparently this fat: she is a mermaid after all! Also if innocent.
