|“||One badass extinct shark.||”|
— In-game description.
It is available for purchase by coins once the player eats enough to unlock it. According to Vincent Leblanc, it is presumed to be the third best shark in the game. (Though its zombified counterpart is arguably better, making the Megalodon the 4th best).
It can be purchased with 250,000 coins or 1,500 gems.
The Megalodon indirectly appears in every Hungry Shark game, as Hungry Shark Trilogy and Hungry Shark: Night do not directly have the Megalodon, but do have mega versions, similar to the Megalodon, while Hungry Shark Evolution also has it.
Megalodon looks similar to the Great White, with a different color and being much bigger. The Megalodon is currently the biggest shark in the game, but can get even bigger by getting all the Hungry Letters, a recent feature in the game, coming before the update that included force fields, new pets, and new mechanics. Has it's own baby version named "Max" which costs 1,500 gems.
Sadly, unlike subsequent !! sharks, Megalodon has no special abilities.
You can unlock the Megalodon with coins by fulfilling the eating requirements.
