Jellyfish are one of the many hazards of the Hungry Shark series, and are in all of the installments, with the exception of Hungry Shark: Night.

There are three different variations; the blue (normal) jellyfish, green (box) jellyfish and pink (moon) jellyfish, and all will spawn in various parts of the map. Blue jellyfish are the most common, green jellyfish are the second most common, and pink jellyfish are the rarest which can be found deep in the ocean. Only blue and green jellyfish are common and may be found in shallow water.


Jellyfish are very dangerous, and will sting (poison) you on contact unless you buy the antidote power up from Hungry Shark Evolution in the store, or you can use the Megalodon, Robo Shark, Big Daddy, Mr. Snappy, Great White Shark and the Ice Shark and above (they are immune to all jellyfish. Except for the Great White Shark and Electro Shark, they can only eat blue jellyfish). When you unlock the Great White Shark, green jellyfish start to appear much more in shallow water.


In Hungry Shark Part 1, 2, and 3, all jellyfish can be eaten, but upon eating them, it will speed up health drain. In Hungry Shark Evolution, when your shark makes contact with a jellyfish, it will be stung and turn green for a few seconds. During these few seconds, your shark's health decreases at an accelerated rate, varying on the type of jellyfish. The blue jellyfish's poisonous effect is least harmful (dealing 7 damage per second), while the green's is the second most damaging (11 damage per second), and pink jellyfish's is the most damaging (18 damage per second).

The poisoning effect of Jellyfish can be countered with an antidote so your shark will be immune to the poison. (HSE only)

Appearance in HSW[]

In Hungry Shark World, Jellyfish appear in all of the usual types, but there is a difference in term of the types of sharks which can eat them: Blue jellyfish can be eaten by XL sharks and above, Green by XXL sharks and above and Pink by !! sharks or above (additionally Red if the player has the Atomic Shark or Meltdown Shark). There are also two brand new (but no longer) types of Jellyfish, one of which appears in every ocean. The jellyfish mentioned to appear in every ocean are large, red colored and cannot be eaten by any possible type of shark unless the Mega Gold Rush is active, or all of the HUNGRY letters have been collected. However, they can be eaten by the Atomic Shark and the Meltdown Shark without said Mega Gold Rush. The other new species of jellyfish is the King Jelly, which is an extremely large jellyfish exclusive to the South China Sea, and cannot be eaten by any shark unless if you have Mega Gold Rush or HUNGRY letters, and tend to spawn with pink jellyfish in smaller quantities.

Main article: Red Jellyfish

Red Jellyfish are very deadly. Their poisonous effect causes a shark to lose health at very fast rate and for quite a long amount of time, killing smaller and even XL sharks after touching them once and bigger sharks after touching them 2, or 3 times. They should be avoided at all costs, since one mistake may spell shark's death (Atomic Shark and Meltdown Shark can eat them).

Main article: King Jelly

King Jellies are even more deadlier than Red Jellyfish and is the deadliest jellyfish. One sting can kill an !! shark without eating quickly. King Jellies should always be avoided and take note that sometimes more than one King Jelly can spawn in an area infested with pink jellyfish. They cannot be eaten by any sharks even with Kraken equipped.

Blue Jellyfish are the weakest jellyfish in the game and can be eaten by Tier XL sharks and above

General Trivia[]

  • Sharks after the Tiger Shark plus all special sharks can eat blue jellyfish. (HSE)
  • Sharks after the Great White plus some special sharks like the Robo Shark can also eat green and pink jellyfish, therefore, they can't be stung by jellyfish at all, rendering them unable to use antidotes. (HSE)
  • In previous versions of Hungry Shark Evolution, the Great White Shark could not eat blue jellyfish.
  • In the museum the reward was said to be "zero", that's not actually true, and it was probably an exaggeration: jellyfish do restore health and give points; they restore a minuscule 2 points of health, which is not noticeable. This was stated by Future Games of London on their Hungry Shark Evolution Facebook page. The exact value of 2 points is very, very little.
  • Despite looking like a feature, there are glitches regarding jellyfish size. Some jellyfish are so little that they're hard to notice, and the player could pass on them and get stung without even noticing them, and some jellyfish are more than 8 meters long (bigger than a Tiger Shark) and can completely block the access to some underwater caves. (HSE)
  • Green Jellyfish are hard to notice in shallow water, so Reef-Great White tier sharks can get stung a lot and not notice it even if the jellyfish are big.
  • In older versions of HSW, eating a large shoal of Pink Jellyfish used to have a small chance to give you gems.
  • Jellyfish do not appear golden, unless in a gold / mega-rush.
