* The Megalodon, a ''fifty foot'' -- that's the ''minimum'' estimate -- long prehistoric super shark. As well as a number of other large (and often freakish-looking) prehistoric sharks. Want some examples?

* The [[http://animals.howstuffworks.com/fish/tiger-shark3.htm Tiger shark]]. It's not all stereotyping. However, studies indicate that tiger sharks can easily be tamed.

* The [[http://animals.howstuffworks.com/fish/tiger-shark3.htm Tiger shark]]. It's not all stereotyping. However, studies indicate that tiger sharks can easily be tamed. To explain, Tiger Sharks are {{Extreme Omnivore}}s and will eat absolutely anything they can. Things found inside tiger shark stomaches include license plates, skeletons of various animals normally too large to fit inside to begin with (like horses), and supposedly (according to a 16th century report by a respected marine biologist of the time) even the remains of a medieval knight still clad in his armour.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' the Zora race are portrayed as having somewhat more shark-like traits than they were previously. However, while some are suspicious and hostile in attitude towards the main character, others are much more friendly, and none of them are considered enemies. In an outright [[InvertedTrope inversion]] of this trope, one of the friendliest characters in the entire game is the Zora Prince Sidon, who is more even ''more'' shark-like than the rest of his people (complete with hammerhead-like crest). At the same time, he ''is'' a WarriorPrince, so this trope is played straight for the monsters he fights to protect Zora's Domain, particularly that giant Octorok whose stomach he speared his way out of.

* Meta example: The ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'' Hammerstrike toy (hammerhead shark beast mode) has elbow joints prone to cracking at the sockets, rendering both modes unworkable (each forearm has half the shark mode's lower jaw).

to:

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' has several examples:
** ''Generation One'' had the Sharkticons, animalistic slaves / goons of the Quintessons, who kept a shark pit in their courtroom. Anyone who got put on trial ended up in the shark pit.
** Later on, there was Overbite of the Seacons, who turned into a shark with arms and legs.

** The ''Universe'' toyline established a piece of Cybertronian wildlife known as the Oxide Sharks. ''ComicBook/BeastWarsUprising'' expanded on them a little further - they can transform as well, in this case into torpedoes, aimed at anyone foolish enough to come near them.

Added DiffLines:

* By contrast, sharks in Japanese mythology are more malicious. The description of a shark monster in the ''Ehon Hyaku Monogatari'' is probably the oldest description of a shark ambushing people like in modern media.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has the Carcharodons (or "Space Sharks") Space Marine Chapter, a Chapter of brutal and feared warriors that are rarely seen. And when they ''are'', nothing is left living in their wake.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'': Benthic knifeooths are sharks up to twenty feet long and with slender, serpentine bodies. They get their name from their wickedly serrated teeth, which snag in the flesh of their prey -- which translates to almost anything smaller than themselves -- to prevent it from escaping. Luckily, they live in the very deep ocean and far from human settlement. Less luckily, there are plenty of things in Creation, ranging from idle curiosity on the shark's part to a sea god in a bad mood, that can drive one towards the shallows and into contact with humans.
