A shark is one of the recurring LEGO animal figures that are included in many underwater themes including Aquazone, Town Divers and Pirates (both Pirates). Two versions have been introduced since its debut in 1989.

Version 1

The first dedicated LEGO shark figures were included in two sets of the Pirates theme in 1989. These sharks were colored in dark grey. During the following years the shark became a ubiquitous part of the sea life in the LEGO universe and made appearances in many sets in a wide variety of themes. In 1997 a white colored variant was introduced. The last two sharks released in 2008 were molded in dark stone.

This first shark version consisted of two pieces: the body (including the lower jaw, the tail and the fins) and a separate head piece with the upper jaw that allowed the mouth to be opened or closed. The interior was hollow, so that the shark could swallow little objects measured up to 1 stud in diameter. This limitation didn't allow it to eat entire minifigures, which was remedied in version 2.


The sawfish, introduced in 1997, uses the same body as the classic shark, but the head includes a sawtoohed tip added to the nose of the otherwise similar head.


Revised "Classic" Shark

A revised version of the original shark was included in the 2015 Minifigure Retro Set (5003082 Classic Pirates Set). This variant is the same size as the original but the head has printed eyes, and the body includes molded gills.

Version 2

The new shark introduced in the Agents set 8633 Mission 4: Speedboat Rescue was considerably bigger than its predecessor, which allows it to swallow an entire minifigure.

This version also consists of a body piece and a separate movable head with upper jaw. These parts provide more details than the previous version. The body has now gills behind the head and the teeth have a different color than the rest of the shark. It also has two studs on the top of the body piece in front of the dorsal fin.

In The LEGO Movie, there are sharks that are part of the Octan Tower's defenses as well as Laser-Sharks (sharks that have been equipped with lasers).

The shark also makes an appearance in two cutscenes of LEGO The Hobbit: The Video Game.

Beast Boy's shark transformation

In LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham the shark appears as a transformation of Beast Boy when he is in water. The shark features the same mold but is colored dark green.

In The LEGO Batman Movie the shark appeared as the main antagonist from Jaws as he is in the Phantom Zone with other villains and recruited by The Joker to take over Gotham City. Later in the final battle, Jaws attempted to eat Batman, but Robin sprayed the shark by using "shark repellent" and send it back to the Phantom Zone.
