* In ''Literature/CodexAlera'''s third book, ''Captain's Fury'', [[GuileHero Tavi]] has the butchers in his legion drop a lot of blood in the river whose only bridge he is defending to attract a lot of sharks, thus preventing the enemy from reaching the other side by swimming. His legion's Knights (nicknamed Knight Pisces because they are rookies) end up taking the shark as their symbol.

** Thanks to Shark's Shark deck, Shark cards have become an actual archetype. Shark decks are pretty offensive and they are capable of Xyz Summoning Xyz Shark monsters: Submersible Carrier Aero Shark, Shark Caesar, Shark Fortress, Bahamut Shark, Number 32: Shark Drake, Number C32: Shark Drake Veiss, Number 37: Hope Woven Dragon Spider Shark, and Number 47: Nightmare Shark.

* In real life, sharks play a very important role in the marine ecosystem, and their presence is a good sign of cleaner, more productive seas. It was the unfortunate ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' stigma that created this trope. Although it was also thanks to ''Jaws'' that scientists started taking a closer look at sharks than ever before, which in turn led to the huge push to preserve them as a species. So ''Jaws'' saved sharks from extinction nearly caused by... ''Jaws''. Eh, talk about things coming full circle.

* If sharks could edit TV Tropes, they'd name a page after orcas instead. Orcas have a somewhat higher place on the food chain, beating sharks to death before eating their livers. Sharks will [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere flee an area immediately]] if they discover nearby [[TheDreaded orcas]]. Except for the Whitetips, who are too damn hungry to feel fear.
