'''''Jaws Unleashed''''' is a video game developed by Appaloosa Interactive and released on the {{Playstation 2}}, {{Xbox}} and {{PC}}, based on the ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' film franchise. You get to play as the shark, who chomps its way through sealife, humans and their constructions.

A sequel ''Jaws: Ultimate Predator'' was released in 2011 for the 3DS and Wii, while another, ''Jaws: Revenge'' was made by the Creator/Rebellion studio and released for mobile devices.

!!Examples in this game:

* BigDamnHeroes: When you destroy Michael Brody's boat, Craddock, the shark hunter employed by Environplus arrives on a helicopter to save him.
* BloodIsSquickerInWater: Things that you eat have more blood in them than it's possible.
* CelShading: The sequel is done in this style.
* DeadlyLunge: Inverted with the bikini-clad girl swimmers in ''Jaws: Revenge'', who will quickly pick up in speed once you approach them, which makes eating them slightly more difficult.
* DerelictGraveyard: There's a lagoon filled with sunken ships.
* EverythingIsTryingToKillYou: Not just the humans and their machines, but it seems like every other creature in the sea wants you dead. Goes into FridgeLogic territory when you see comparatively tiny sand sharks and stingrays going out of their way to suicidally attack a massive thirty-foot great white.
* ExplodingBarrels: You can throw barrels to this effect. In ''Jaws: Revenge'' the hostile helicopters will drop exploding mines down at you.
* EyeScream: You have to bite out the giant squid's eyes during the fight against it.
* GiantSquid: Story mission nine starts off fighting one.
* {{Gorn}}: Jaws Unleashed contains large amounts of blood and gore. Guts spill out of people you bite, heads can be seen floating in the water, etc. Jaws Revenge goes for the more understated RedMist style, but it's still not for the squeamish.
* GottaCatchThemAll: The tin cans and licence plates in Jaws Unleashed.
* GrievousHarmWithABody: You explode boats by ''throwing people at them'' in Unleashed. In Revenge, the shark's bulk will do once you attack them enough times.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: The fight with the killer whale ends with the shark biting it in half in mid-air.
* HarpoonGun: Some divers will attack you with these.
* HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday: Once again, Amity is celebrating Fourth of July.
* HyperactiveMetabolism: You regain health by eating anything living in sight.
* JawsFirstPersonPerspective: The Shark Vision.
* MadeOfExplodium: Any machine that you destroy.
* MadeOfIron: The shark can survive several explosive barrels and contact mines before dying if it begins at full health.
* NaturalWeapon: Naturally. You can smash objects with your tail or bite with your teeth.
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: When the Environplus' underwater facility explodes, the shark is assumed to be dead.
* PiranhaProblem: You'll have to face them as the shark in the aquarium stages.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: While you do face alligators in Unleashed, in Ultimate Predator you get to face aquatic dinosaurs and a giant crocodile.
* SeaMine: You have navigate through these in the seventh story mission.
* SharkTunnel: You get to destroy these in the second story mission.
* ShoutOut: One of the bosses is a Killer Whale. It may or may not be a reference to the 1977 film ''Orca'', which was a ''Jaws'' knockoff.
** The seventh level is very reminiscient of ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''.
* SpinAttack: One of the unlockable special moves in Unleashed.
* SuperMode: The shark in ''Revenge'' can enter one after eating enough stuff, which turns the edges of the screen blood-red, makes it practically invulnerable to damage and lets it jump high enough to destroy (relatively) high-flying planes.
* StockSubtitle: Revenge and Unleashed are hardly all that original.
* ThreateningShark: What did you expect?
* UnderTheSea: Enforced by the fact that the player character is a fish.
* UnderwaterBase: You destroy one during the ninth story mission.
* UnderwaterBossBattle: The fights against orca and the giant squid.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Where do we begin?
** You can rip apart men, women and children alike, attacking them as they scream bloody murder.
** You can rip apart other aquatic life, while they try their damndest to get away.
** You can throw people back on the beach and watch them explode in a bloody mist.
* VillainProtagonist: The sharks tend to be the [[{{BigBad}} Big Bads]] of the films.
* WideOpenSandbox: The whole ocean is your playground.
* WindowPain: Plenty of sturdy glass panes shatter before you.
