A Super Mission is the ninth, final mission assigned to every standard shark in Hungry Shark Evolution. There is one Super Mission for every shark. The Super Mission is usually considered to be the most difficult mission to complete, and therefore rewards a generous sum of coins: more coins than any of the other missions.
Super Missions are unique in the sense that they require a minimum score of points to be earned in order to complete them. Super Missions can't be attempted until the eight standard missions are completed (the missions that require a shell to be found). Once on of the Super Missions are completed, a gold shell will move to the middle of the screen (this is what might have confused people into thinking of this).
The greater the shark, the more difficult the super mission and the greater the reward.
