Alternate names: Mermaids, Mermen

The first video game about Merfolk was released in 1983.

Square, Muteki Corporation and Capcom has published most of these games

Merfolk are sea creatures generally thought to be half fish/half human. The top half is human, usually. Some are simply water-breathing humans. Tales of them are similar to sirens or water nymph/water fairy folk. There have been many hoaxes claiming to 'prove' the existence of real mermaids. They are usually quite dangerous to people, even the nice ones.
