The Shark Bait is a Pet summon item that summons a pet Shark Pup. It has a 1/10, or 10% chance to be found in Water Chests, and Ocean Crates.

When underwater, the shark pet swims around freely. When out of water, it is encased in a bubble. If you walk too far from the shark, it will not teleport. Instead, it will move swiftly toward the player.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The pet and the tooltip are a reference to the viral YouTube video and popular children's song "Baby Shark".
  • The sprite and name may be a reference to the film 'Finding Nemo', due to the sprite resembling a clownfish, with 'Shark Bait' being a nickname given to Nemo.
  • The pet will move to the other side of the player if it is "attacked" (i.e: hit with a weapon).
