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 bigger than you are. However, 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, the default shark, the Great White Shark and Hammerhead Shark, unlocked by spending 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.

Hungry Shark Evolution

Hungry Shark Evolution has the second most sharks, along with five special sharks (All regular sharks need the previous one at level 10 with 100 % exp. to be unlocked or the player could use gems to buy the locked shark):
