The Whale Shark is one of the 34 tier 10 animals in It is based on its real life counterpart, Rhincodon typus. It is one of the animals a Wobbegong Shark can evolve into, along with the Basking Shark and the Tiger Shark.

Introduction[ | ]

The Whale Shark is the biggest shark and fish in the world, and is one of the three filter feeding species, along with the Basking Shark and the Megamouth Shark. This species is a gentle giant, crusading peacefully in the vast ocean.

Although it is not dangerous, the Whale Shark is still not an animal to mess with. Several remora orbit the shark like drones, and if anything dares to hurt its master, the remoras are quick to strike. They packed quite a punch, and always succeed in scaring away its opponents. The remoras served as the shark's loyal body guards, and many of them fought and died for their master.

Mechanics[ | ]

  • Wobbegong sharks choose to evolve into Basking Sharks, Tiger Sharks or Whale Sharks.
  • Whale Sharks do not evolve into any other animals, as they are one of the Tier 10 Animals.
  • Whale Sharks drop meat upon death.
  • As a whale shark, friendly fire is turned off for all tier 1 animals: meaning you cannot damage them nor be damaged by them.

Update Proposals[ | ]

As we mentioned earlier, Whale Sharks are incredibly weak and underpowered animals. Fortunately, they are getting some balancing changes that may make it a stronger animal. Below are the changes the whale shark will get according to the Crabinet's Final Presentation as of version 4.0.1: [1]

  • The Whale Shark will have a base speed of 100% instead of 90%.
  • The remora drones of the Whale Shark will have a base speed of 140% instead of 120%, making it capable of chasing fast targets including the Marlin.
  • The remora drones will prioritize the animals the Whale Shark hits instead over the ones that hit the Whale Shark.

Trivia[ | ]

  • It's not invincible to other remoras in Pearl Defense
  • The whale shark is the only animal in the game to have 4 boosts, while other animals have 1, 2 or 3.
  • The whale shark and its remoras are created by Pathos.
