The Tiger Shark is a species of requiem shark that only appears in Endless Ocean: Blue World.
"This man-eating predator is named for the stripes running down its side. It eats anything; water birds, sea turtles and even cans have been found in its stomach.
In Asia, its fins are prized as a cooking ingredient, so, if caught, it will probably end up being eaten."
One individual is seen swimming around the Deep Hole area.
- Normally, this creature is found at nighttime only, but it appears in the daytime during the quests involving Oceana (early in the storyline) and the quest involving helping a trapped bottlenose dolphin.
- After the main plot, it is swimming around the Coliseum, rather than in the Mouth of Truth, like in the quest early in the main plot.
- One is seen attacking an albino bottlenose dolphin after the main storyline has been completed, as part of the quest "Be the Best Trainer!". The dolphin will become the player's partner after you calm the shark.
- The pulsar works for a short period of time on this creature to calm it down, like with most aggressive creatures in-game.
- During the part of the quest "Save the Aquarium", you must travel to the northern Zahhab Region. When the client you are working with for that particular part of the story accidentally drops her camera equipment, you must use the Multisensor to locate it, all while fighting off both Tiger Sharks and Great White Sharks using the Pulsar.
- In real life, Tiger Sharks will eat practically anything, earning them the nickname "the wastebasket of the sea." It is also a vicious apex predator that is responsible for a large amount of fatal shark attacks upon humans, though shark attacks upon humans are rare in the first place.
- In real life, Tiger Sharks are actually much shorter than the in-game Marine Encyclopedia states; they actually only average around 10 feet 8 inches–13 feet 11 inches (3.25–4.25 meters) rather than the 20 feet (or 6 meters) that the in-game information claims.
- Juvenile individuals have stripes that are far more distinct than the adults, as the markings fade over time, meaning that the individuals seen in-game are more likely younglings than they are adults. However, this may have simply been a design choice to make it easier for the player to discern between similar-looking species of sharks.
