The Whale Shark is one of the 34 tier 10 animals in Deeeep.io. 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 evolve into 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.

Abilities[]

Active Abilities[]

Name Image Charge Time Description
Remoras Whale Shark Ability.png None Hold click to cause your remoras to attack the nearest target. After a remora hits a target, it will despawn and the whale shark will lose a boost.

Remora Drones[]

Main article: Remora

  • A remora will spawn every time a whale shark gains a boost. A whale shark can have a maximum amount of 4 remoras.
  • Remoras will normally follow its host, or revolve around it when the whale shark is stationary.
  • If the whale shark holds its boost however, the remoras will attack nearby players according to the following priority:
    • They will attack the last animal who attacked you in the last 5 seconds
    • They will attack the last animal you attacked in the last 5 seconds
    • They will attack the closest animal to you
    • This will however change in the Snow and Below update, where the remoras prioritize targets that the whale shark hits over the ones that hit the whale shark.

Passive Abilities[]

  • Eat to gain boosts. For every boost you gain, a remora will spawn and follow you. If the whale shark is to be stationary, the remoras will orbit the whale shark instead.
  • If all of the remoras are used up, the whale shark will receive +20% speed boost.
  • The whale shark is immune to slow corals and turbulent waters (a.k.a whirlpools).

Suitable Biomes[]

  • The suitable biome for the whale shark is the ocean.
    • If a whale shark enters the ocean surface, it will lose oxygen.
    • If a whale shark enters the arctic, it will lose temperature.
    • If a whale shark enters the arctic surface, it will lose oxygen and temperature.
    • If a whale shark enters the deeeep, it will lose pressure.
    • If a whale shark enters the swamp, it will lose salinity.
    • If a whale shark enters the swamp surface, it will lose oxygen and it will not regenerate salinity.

Diet[]

This is a complete list of food that whale sharks can eat.

Name Can be eaten by Image XP Description
Barb All except for the stonefish who spawned it Barb.png 0 Spawns behind a stonefish using their active ability. Deals damage upon eating it (7% of max life). Poisons anyone who eats it with a base DPS of 10% that lasts 5 seconds (except poison-immune animals). Despawns after 4 seconds.

Tips and Tricks[]

Comparing to other animals, the Whale Shark is considered to be one of the weakest tier 10 animals by the community. It is too reliant on its remoras, which is not really reliable. It can't dash, making it a bad hunter. It remoras may be dangerous, but are too easy to avoid. Most of the fights with whale shark will end up with the opponent escaping and the whale shark at critically low health, and then killed by other animals. However, whale sharks are a big threat for animals on low health of animals without boosts, so here's some tips to use it right.

As Whale Shark[]

  • Aim for animals that are being chased or on low health, which your remoras can kill with ease.
  • Sometimes, you can trap your opponents using your remoras.
  • Go for Lion's Mane Jellyfishes, your remoras have armor penetration, and can kill LMJs easier comparing to other animals.
  • If you are being chased, run and eat food to regen health and remoras, and always hold your boost. This will help you to recover and your remoras will weaken the enemy, then fight it head on.
  • Whale Sharks are really powerful in 1v1 game modes, where regenerating boost is much more easier. Always eat food and hold your boosts, this will keep the opponent busy and their health will be drained.

Against Whale Shark[]

  • You can use the hit and run technique against whale sharks. Let the remoras hit you, and run to regenerate your health before coming back and hit the whale shark again. Whale Sharks are slow to regenerate boost, and this technique will definitely beat it (or that it is already killed because it no longer has remoras on it). This technique is harder to perform in 1v1s, as the whale shark can regenerate health and boosts easily.
  • Beware, some whale sharks may use its remoras to trap you!
  • Dash to run away from the remoras. Remoras are fast and if you don't dash away, it will catch up to you for sure.

Skins[]

Skins are cosmetics that can be used to change an animal's appearance in the game. Here are the list of skins that can be used for the whale shark. Seasonal skins are not included. (needs a page that explains about skins and shows the list of skins available.)

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: [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[]

  • 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.
