Le petit garçon lui promet de la protéger et de s'occuper d'elle, mais le père de Ponyo, Fujimoto - un sorcier autrefois humain qui vit tout au fond de la mer - la force à revenir avec lui dans les profondeurs. Bien décidée à devenir humaine, Ponyo s'échappe pour retrouver Sosuke. Mais avant de prendre la fuite, elle répand l'élixir magique de Fujimoto, l'Eau de la Vie, dans l'océan. Le niveau de la mer s'élève, et les soeurs de Ponyo sont transformées en vagues gigantesques qui montent jusqu'à la maison de Sosuke sur la falaise, et engloutissent le village ...
