We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The Sand Shark is a Hardmode enemy found in the Desert Biome only during a Sandstorm. It is able to "swim" through all varieties of Sand, Hardened Sand, and Sandstone Blocks, but will collide normally against any other block. When it draws near a player, it will lunge out of the sand to attack.

The Sand Shark only appears in ordinary Deserts. There are other variants for different versions of the Desert:

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Similar to the many colors of gel, the color of the Shark Fins dropped by Sand Sharks ( Sand Shark Fins.png ) are different from those dropped by Sharks ( Shark Fin.png ), but they are both the same item and stack together in the inventory.
  • If a Sand Shark or any of its variants enters water, it will behave like a normal Shark.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cenx confirmed that the inspiration for the enemy was a joke with Safemanda's daughter.[1][2][3]
  • The sound the dash attack makes seems to be the same as the sound from the Vampire.
