How to Become a Mermaid in The Sims 4?

Obtaining Mermadic Kelp

To become a mermaid in The Sims 4 you only need to do one thing, really. And that is to find yourself a Mermadic Kelp. This is an item in the game that you can acquire in multiple ways.

First off, the Mermadic Kelp can be purchased from the Rewards Menu and it costs 500 Satisfaction Points. This is the quickest way of obtaining the item, so we recommend it if you’re absolutely in a hurry to be a mermaid.

And secondly, you can find Mermadic Kelp while diving in deep waters or exploring the hidden on the Island of Mua Pel’am. Both of these ways are based on RNG, which means that there is a chance for you to receive the item and a chance that you won’t. However, we recommend this path if you aren’t in a hurry since the exploration makes the whole thing spontaneous. But the choice is yours!

Do you know that you can play The Sims 4 in a first-person mode? Learn how to do it here!

Turning into a Mermaid

Once you have the Mermadic Kelp item, though, your Sim will need to eat it. This will give them a 24-hour buff called “Strange Sensation”. And this buff must be used before it expires!

You will simply need to enter water while under the influence of Strange Sensation. Your Sim will almost instantly become a mermaid and start the mermaid life! However, if you don’t use the buff before it expires, you will have to obtain another Mermaid Kelp and start the whole thing from the beginning.

Turning Back into a Normal Sim

When you’ve decided that you want to ditch the mermaid life and change back into a normal Sim, this is what you’ll need to do.

First, obtain two Mermadic Kelp items. Then, your Sim will need to eat both of them, one after the other. With the first Mermadic Kelp, your Sim will get the regular buff. But once they eat the second one, the mermaid effect will be removed and all stats will be back at normal.
