Awesome / Shark Tale

  • A fairly meta example: the fact that Lenny's father is clearly supposed to be the bad guy in not accepting his son wanting to be a 'dolphin'. Metaphors for LGBTs don't occur in kid movies very often, if ever.
    • Technically, the problem between Lenny and his dad was that the former was a vegetarian, which leads to a good bit of fridge logic concerning how Lenny hasn't starved to death.
  • The Shrimp who Lino tried to get Lenny to eat eventually gets his revenge on the shark. It crosses as both an Awesome moment and a Crowning Moment of Funny.
    (As Oscar swims out of a porthole, Lino gets stuck in it while chasing him)
    Lino: You're gonna regret the day you became the Sharkslayer!
    Shrimp [appears from the next porthole]: Well, well, well! Look who's stuck in the porthole!
    Lino: Huh?
    Shrimp: You still hungry, big guy?! Well, say hello to my 'little friends!!''
    (as the Shrimp hums "Charge", a swarm of other shrimp appear and latches onto Lino's face to attack him)
    Lino: AAH!!!!
  • The whole climax of Oscar subduing Lino at the whale wash, which culminates in trapping him into the machinery.
    • Then, when Oscar sees a disappointed Angie about to leave while the crowd is chanting "Sharkslayer", he can't take it anymore and finally admits the truth.
      Oscar: STOP! I AM NOT A REAL SHARKSLAYER!!! (the crowd gasps, while Angie turns back at hearing Oscar's confession and hardly believing her ears) I lied.
