In the film, they are portrayed as mindless eating machines who only shout one word: "Mine!"
They are first seen cawing "Mine!" while Nigel has a crab in his wing that he is going to eat, much to his irritation. However, he ends up relieving the crab when he overhears from his fellow pelicans that Nemo's father, Marlin, is trying to search for his son, although the crab manages to escape from the Seagulls.
Later in the film, the Seagulls surround Nigel, Marlin and Dory, and also nearly try to eat Marlin and Dory while trying to escape from Nigel (as they thought he was going to try and eat them when all he was trying to do was tell them that he knows Nemo and where he is), but Nigel saves them. They chase after Nigel until their beaks crash into a sail of one of the sailboats.
The Seagulls make their last appearance when Dory and Nemo try to get information out of a crab about where he saw Marlin go (Dory intended to feed the crab to the Seagulls if he didn't answer them).
Three of the Seagulls appear on top of a buoy as animatronics in the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage lagoon. The periodically flap their wings and say "Mine! Mine! Mine!"
Walt Disney World
Three of the Seagulls reside on the rocks outside the entrance to The Seas with Nemo & Friends at Epcot. Like their Disneyland counterparts, they periodically flap their wings and say "Mine! Mine! Mine!"
At Finding Nemo: The Musical in Disney's Animal Kingdom, they do not actually appear in the show itself, but they do appear in the bubbles flanking the stage after the show ends to say "Bye! Bye! Bye!"
Disneyland Resort Paris
Two of the Seagulls sit on top of a billboard in the loading area of Crush's Coaster at the Walt Disney Studios Park. Like their American cousins, they periodically say "Mine! Mine! Mine!"
- The Seagulls bear some resemblance to Feathers McGraw, the evil penguin from the Wallace and Gromitshort film "The Wrong Trousers."
- The Seagulls have gained a large fanbase, for obvious reasons.
