The Megamouth Shark is a species of shark that makes its home in deeper areas of the sea. It makes an appearance in both of the Endless Ocean games.
"As the name suggests, it has a large head with a gigantic mouth.
It spends the day at depths of several hundred metres, before returning to the surface during the night.
Although around 30 years have passed since it was discovered, it is rarely captured, and so there is still much that is not known about this shark.
[Inside the Jaws]
Although it has a gigantic mouth, it feeds on plankton and jellyfish, and so does not possess the sharp teeth of other sharks. Instead it has countless teeth only millimetres in size.
Also, when it opens its jaws, a white line appears on the tip of its snout. Because this white colour stands out at night and in dark places like the deep sea, it is thought that it serves to entice creatures as food."
The Megamouth Shark is one of the two sharks that live in the Crevasses, the other being the aggressive Bluntnose Sixgill Shark. Contrary to its cousin, the Megamouth is benign and does not attack the player. All it does is swim about, looking rather solemn.
- Players are commonly scared or startled by this creature because of its size and the fact that it sometimes sneaks up behind the player.
- There is only one in the first game, but two in the second.
- This can be found day and night
- In the first game, it swims in a different pattern at night than it does during the daytime.
