* Megalodons are very common in the oceans of ''VideoGame/ArkSurvivalEvolved'', though their size is based on the minimum estimates. They're tameable too, but not the most dangerous creature one can encounter under the sea when you've got ''giant mosasaurs''.

* ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio'' has Pinocchio get swallowed by a giant sea creature known as "The Terrible Dogfish". "Dogfish" is in fact the literal translation of the Italian word for "shark", though it's typically depicted as being even larger than a megalodon.

It's basically just a huge freaking shark. ''Carcharodon megalodon'' (Now [[ScienceMarchesOn possibly]] ''Carcharocles megalodon'' - see [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megaladon#Taxonomy the other wiki]] for details) lived from 25 to 1.5 million years ago, was at least 15m long at the very minimum and almost certainly grew up to 18 metres, weighed 75 tons (making it the largest undisputed apex predator of all time), and was an apex predator that reigned for 20 million years (20 times longer than most others), specialized in killing whales, and went extinct due to the closing of the Central American Seaway, the migratory, breeding and hunting grounds of it and its prey. However in low grade schlock movies it will be uncovered after being frozen in ice and go on a superhunting rampage, tracking down our intrepid heroes all over the world before eating Boeing 747's in a single bite ''while flying''.
