to:

* VideoGameFlamethrowersSuck: COMPLETELY [[AvertedTrope AVERTED]].The flamethrower started out as a small stream of flame that did good damage, and them proceeded into [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Firesharklv4_3301.jpg this]] at maximum level. 6 streams of fire, four of which sweep the sides and back of the player character. And it downs both the regular Mooks and {{Giant Mook}}s in seconds. In fact, the fully upgraded flamethrower is so broken, using it for too long will cause the game to flood the screen with other weapon powerups in an effort to force you to use something else!

* NintendoHard: Happens It already is given its nature as an arcade scrolling shooter, but the difficulty gets even worse when the DynamicDifficulty is turned up.

* HarderThanHard: The original alternating player build of the Japanese version (''Same! Same! Same!''), as there's scrolling which can hide some enemies as well as create faster bullets. Fire Shark is based on the easier 2 player simultaneous made by developers because even they considered the original version to be too hard.

* BattleshipRaid: Present in this game, you get to fight regular battleships as well as boss fights like these.
* BoringButPractical: The Blue Spread weapon. It may not be as awesome as the flamethrower and can't attack backwards, but it can perform very well against popcorn mooks and certain larger ones. What makes it practical is that it's the most commonly-dropped weapon of the three.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Besides the DynamicDifficulty, the game will also make the PowerUp-dropping enemies attempt to give you the blue or green weapons. The powerups also stay on the screen and bounce around, making you have to dodge enemy fire AND powerups which you don't want to replace your [[GameBreaker flamethrower]] with.

* ImprobableAimingSkills: Tanks, when the DynamicDifficulty gets turned up. That fact that their shots get faster too doesn't help one bit.
* MutuallyExclusivePowerups: The three weapon powerups. Really annoying when the enemies start dropping blue powerups everywhere, when all you want is to keep your flamethrower...

* SmartBomb: Present in the game, and looks very similar to the bomb weapon in ''VideoGame/{{Raiden}}''
* SpreadShot: The blue weapon. VERY similar to the red weapon in ''VideoGame/{{Raiden}}'', it shot a huge amount of shots in a spread when fully powered up. However, each shot was quite weak.

* AwesomeYetPractical: The Flamethrower weapon at max level. It basically shoots two straight streams of damaging flames out in front, while another two on each side sweeps the entire area (except directly behind the player), allowing you to sweep away most regular Mooks. Best of all, it does a massive amount of damage per second.

Best of all, it It also does a massive amount of damage per second.second. As for the reason why it's impractical? The Red powerup drops ''rarely'' compared to the other two, and with the number of power-up ships you kill, there'll be a load of blue/green powerups on screen.

''Fire Shark'' shares quite a few similarities to ''VideoGame/{{Raiden}}'', though it came out one year earlier.

earlier. It's been suggested that this inspired Raiden.



* AnticlimaxBoss: Many of the bosses can become this if you have a level 4 laser or flamethrower weapon. They WILL die VERY quickly.
