Winx Club Forever
In Season 5, Faragonda informs the Winx will need Sirenia to defeat Tritannus as their Believix power is less effective underwater. According to Faragonda in "Return to Alfea", Sirenix is an ancient power that was born of the magic of the oceanl Faragonda also mentioned that no one had acquired Sirenix for a long time and that Daphne was the last fairy to acquie it, and the only one who knows the location of the Sirenix Book, a book needed to acquire Sirenix.
When Bloom asked Daphne about the location of the Sirenix Book, Daphne told her not to look for it because it is dangerous. When the Ancestral Witches attacked Domino, she acquired Sirenix and was ready to fight them by using it, but the Ancesral Witches had placed a spell on Sirenix and when Daphne tried to use it, it turned against her and caused her to become a spirit without a body. Bloom ended by persuading Daphne, who revealed that the Sirenix Book is in the Magic Archives of Alfea.
The Source of Sirenix is found in the cave where Daphne dwells in Lake Roccaluce which grants Sirenix powers to fairies who have completed the Sirenix Quest. It also protects the Sirenix powers. If a fairy does not complete the Sirenix Quest within one lunar cycle, she will her powers forever.
The outfits consist of a sparkly mermaid skin-like top, a belt, scale-like colorful leggings with fins and boots with ribbons wrapped around them. The hair is in a ponytail, with highlight streaks and the hair changes its colors when they go underwater. The fairies also wear bands made of a piece of jewelry, flower, or marine creatures and strips of cloth wound around their arms, and a piece of jewelry in their hair. The wings are colorful and seashell-shaped.
The outfits consists of a body suit, a pairs of stiletto with fins, a glove made of the same material. They wear smeared makeup on their eyes and lips. The hair is in ponytails or pigtails. They have tentacles.
In order for a fairy to earn Sirenix, they must find the Gem of Self-Confidence, the Gem of Empathy, and the Gem of Courage. After that, they need to activate the Source of Sirenix in Lake Roccaluce. Then the fairy's Sirenix Box will appear along with her Sirenix Guardian, who will open the portal to the Infinite Ocean. Finally, Omnia, the Supreme Guardian of Sirenix, will appear with the portal to the Infinite Ocean. Once the fairy crosses the Sirenix Gate, she will earn Sirenix.
A witch does not earn Sirenix by the Sirenix Quest. In the Trix's case, after Tritannus forced Daphne to tell him where the source of Sirenix power was, Tritannus headed to Lake Roccaluce to destroy the Source of Sirenix, so Daphne cannot protect her Sirenix from being stolen by him. After he destroyed the source (which was later restored by the Winx using their Harmonix powers and the power of the selkies), Tritannus absorbed Daphne's Sirenix powers and used his trident to give a dark version of Sirenix to the Trix.
“With every twist and turn, the deeper you go until the Shimmering Shells sing with the ocean's voice.”
“Venture where the dark depth of the ocean shine. A precious gem, self-confidence, lies in the deeps.”
“Like a ruby shining under the sea, corals are strings that you feel in a key.”
“To find the gem, you must understand the message in the harp's music.”
“The Winx had to understand the message in the Ruby Reef's music. It leads them to Data Bridge Castle in which Aisha, Bloom and Tecna have unity.”
“Find the Flowers of the Depths. It answers only to courage.”
“Find the Yellow Reef and snatch courage from its jaws.”

They were originally portrayed as being half-woman, half-bird creatures. Later they began to be portrayed as half-woman, half-fish and their English name came to be Mermaids in this appearance.
