A shark is a playable character in all of the Hungry Shark series. Some sharks have enemy versions. The player can only eat the enemy versions if using that shark or a stronger one. However, in some installments, you can eat sharks bigger than you are. However, the only games where you can do that are Hungry Shark: Night, Hungry Shark Evolution (Gold Rush), and Hungry Shark World (Mega Gold Rush)
Hungry Shark Trilogy
Hungry Shark Night
Hungry Shark: Night has three sharks: Tiger Shark, the default shark, and the Great White Shark and Hammerhead Shark, unlocked by spending real money or by watching some videos. However, there is a very high chance you must purchase them with real money, as for many players, you cannot watch any ads anymore.
Hungry Shark Evolution
Hungry Shark Evolution has the second most sharks, along with five special sharks (All regular sharks need the previous one at level 10 with 100% exp. to be unlocked or the player could use gems to buy the locked shark):
Reef Shark - The first shark of the game. Has a small diet, health, and boost attribute. However, it has the slowest health drain of all, meaning it could stay idle longer than a Megalodon.
Mako Shark - A mediocre shark. Has a bigger diet and costs 1500 gold. Fairly low health drain and a little more health. Better boost. Cost: 2000 coins, 20 gems.
Hammerhead Shark - A pretty decent shark. Has a medium diet and costs 6000 gold. Has some good health and health drain. Better boost. Cost: 6000 coins, 60 gems.
Tiger Shark - A good shark for dangerous prey. Can eat pufferfish even when they are inflated. Can go in deep waters and has even better health than the Hammerhead. Cost: 15000 coins, 200 gems.
Megalodon - A giant monster shark capable of eating most prey, including all jellyfish and normal and large mines, but not ultra mines. Large amount of health, but very fast drain. Cost: 50000 coins, 900 gems.
Mr Snappy - It's able to eat everything but toxic cans, volcano jets, enemy Alans, and enemy Moby Dicks. It has the third largest health and it's very fast. Great amount of health with very, very fast drain. Cost: 250,000 coins, 900 gems.

Top secret lab sharks (To be unlock them, The player must find the unlock the Top Secret Lab by scoring 350,000 points):
Electro Shark - Same diet as the Tiger Shark, but has a small boost bar. When it boosts it electrocutes prey nearby, paralyzing them and giving double points. Cost: 25,000 gold, 250 gems.
Ice Shark - Same diet as Great White, but slows down when boosting. When it boosts it freezes nearby prey and slows the shark down. Frozen prey give 2x Points. Cost: 75,000 gold, 450 gems.
Robo Shark - Powerful shark. Same diet as Megalodon except for Ultra Mines and boats. Cannot boost in water, but can fly out of water at high speeds. It can consume small mines and use them as ammunition, then fire them and kill prey, even those it wouldn't be able to eat normally, like enemy Big Daddy. Cost: 180,000 gold, 900 gems. It is the first shark to not be an animal (it is robotic).
Pyro Shark -Very powerful shark. Has a mixed diet. Has 3 abilities- Dragon Breath which you do by boosting, (fire causes erratic movement, and blows them up which feeds you. Eat for extra points) Flight which works like Robo Shark's, and Meteor Storm. (Happens during gold rush, blows food up and feeds you, can kill bigger prey. Cost: 180,000 coins, 900 gems
Natasha the Narwhal -She is the weakest of the Top Secret Lab Sharks but surprisingly very expensive. She can fire javelins with her extremely small boost. Cost: 180,000 coins or 900 gems.
