A Shark is a playable character in all of the Hungry Shark series. Some sharks have enemy versions. The player can only eat the enemy versions if using that shark or a stronger one. However, in some installments, you can eat sharks MUCH bigger than you are. The only games where you can do that are Hungry Shark: Night, Hungry Shark Evolution (Gold Rush), and Hungry Shark World (Mega Gold Rush).
Hungry Shark Trilogy
The Hungry Shark Trilogy features only one shark, a Great White Shark, which also has a Mega form. Its appearance is similar to the one in Hungry Shark Evolution. It is the sole shark that is playable.
Hungry Shark Night
Hungry Shark: Night has three sharks: Tiger Shark which is unlocked by default, but the Great White Shark and Hammerhead Shark must be purchased using real money, or by watching some videos. However, there is a very high chance you must purchase them with real money, as for many players, you cannot watch any ads anymore..
