5. The Shark From Scarface
When you take too much cocaine, anything can happen – even Tony Montana getting brutally eaten by a shark. In Scarface: The World Is Yours, Tony somehow survives one of the most iconic murders ever and ends up in a safe house regretting all his bad decisions. Vowing to give up his cocaine addiction and reclaim his massive drug empire and all his assets, Tony comes back to Miami to seek revenge on Sosa. It’s only natural though that he’d like to take a dip in the water that surrounds Miami and explore, but if players choose to do that and spend too much time there, you’re treated to a gruesome execution worse than the ending of Scarface.
4. Cyber Shark From Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
When encountering a cyber shark – which you know is from the future due to the word ‘cyber’ in front of it, none of your weapons will work. This shark has a metallic skin-coating and neon yellow eyes and teeth which are two things that should never be combined. A plain old shark is bad enough, but a glow-in-the-dark one that won’t die from anything other than a laser katana is pretty scary.
3. The Land Shark Gun From Armed And Dangerous
This game brings to life a hilarious concept that you aren’t safe anywhere from sharks – even on land. If a shark could reach you on land, what would you do? With a homing missile you launch the shark with a clearly visible fin at your target enemy. Everything pauses as the shark disappears underground and then BOOM, bursts high into the air devouring the enemy as he screams for his life. Sounds terrible, but it’s pretty hilarious and totally justified in the context of the game.
2. Gran Bruce From Viewtiful Joe
It really doesn’t get any more life-like than this. Aquatic Terror Gran Bruce is a shark-like agent of Jadow who can’t even finish simple sentences and it’s clear he’s suffered some serious head trauma in the past. He even reveals how to get to Jadow’s base and other pertinent information to you. How many sharks do you know that need flippers, a snorkel and an oxygen tank under water? He’s pretty much an idiot but a pain in the ass to beat.
1. Jaws From Jaws Unleashed
This game is lacking in a lot of things but it makes up for it by allowing you to rip apart swimmers limb by limb in what is quite a gory representation in a video game. This chick nearly escapes and is basically on land, but gets pulled back in and tossed, bit and ripped to shreds, piece by piece as she screams to warn others, “SHARK!” (a little late perhaps since she’s laying lifeless in an pool of blood). You play as Jaws, which is a nice change-up from the other games on this list. For everything this game lacks – narrative, direction, control, focus – it makes up for by allowing you to eat anything you want by being a f*cking shark.
