The Sharks, also known as the Streetwannabe's, is a gang of thugs in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Contents

GTA Vice City

In GTA Vice City, they hang out around the outside of the North Point Mall and in several dilapidated mansions in Prawn Island, but are hardly a threat to any of the other gangs in Vice City. They can also be seen driving in their Gang Burritos (the second generation vehicle of the Sharks). It is suggested that they are involved in arms smuggling and drug running. They seem to be on bad terms with Mitch Baker's Vice City Bikers, and in one mission they even steal his prized motorcycle and store it in a motor garage in Downtown, Vice City. The leader of the gang (name unknown) betrays Ricardo Diaz and steals his shipment of drugs, provoking Diaz to order Tommy Vercetti to kill him and many other members in an aerial assault. They are listed as the "Streetwannabe's," with use of the apostrophe, in the stats menu, but the Shark logos on the back of their denim jackets, along with graffiti on buildings and their gang cars, shows that they are actually the Sharks. They are mostly seen wearing denim jackets, jeans and red bandanas.

GTA Vice City Stories

The Sharks in GTA Vice City Stories are located in the east island of Vice City; they manage a number of rackets, which Victor Vance eventually takes over. The Sharks do not cease attacking Victor until all of their businesses have been taken. Often, they chase Victor in their Gang Ranchers (the first generation vehicle of the Sharks) and sometimes attempt to destroy his empire sites. They are seen wearing brightly colored shirts, light brown or grey pants and berets.

Notes

  • Certain unrelated gangs/factions in Vice City are also listed as Streetwannabes according to the game's statistics. This includes soldiers at Fort Baxter Air Base and "gangs" that show up in certain missions, such as the Forelli Family in the final mission, the attackers in the All Hands On Deck mission, and the courier and bodyguards of a counterfeiting syndicate in the Hit The Courier mission.
  • The Scorpion is only used by members if the player attacks their business.
  • The Chainsaw is not used by all members, but is seen being used by one member in Leap and Bound
  • In Vice City Stories (1984), the Sharks are seen all around Vice City, but in GTA Vice City their empire has shrunk, the gang only appearing at Prawn Island and in the Vice Point region.

Octagon logo found on the tail of the shark

Sharks have played a subtle, but present role on Lost. A shark with a distinct DHARMA Initiative logo on its tail attacked Sawyer and Michael when they were on the raft. ("Adrift"). A shark with a DHARMA Initiative logo was seen swimming near the four toed statue when the island was submerged.("LA X, Parts 1 & 2"). The DHARMA Initiative experimented on sharks and dolphins in the aquarium that Jack was imprisoned in the Hydra. ("A Tale of Two Cities")  (The World of the Others) The blast door map makes reference to a selective breeding program for Carcharodon carcharias (The Great White Shark). There have also been references to sharks in The Lost Experience.

The first Shark Scene

The attack

When Sawyer and Michael were drifting in the ocean on pieces of wreckage after the destruction of the second raft, the two men heard pounding on the remains of the raft. After seeing a distinctive fin they quickly realized they were being followed by a shark, possibly attracted by Sawyer's bleeding. When the men later decided to board one of the raft's remaining pontoons, the shark attacked. Michael however fired Sawyer's gun several times and was able to injure the beast, which quickly broke off its attack.

DHARMA Initiative logo

Unknown logo
Unknown shark logo from (LA X, Parts 1 & 2)

At one moment, a glimpse of the shark's tail underwater was seen. The Shark had an unknown DHARMA logo on its tail, indicating a connection to the DHARMA initiative. In the Swan Orientation Film, one of the topics listed as being studied through the DHARMA Initiative is zoology, which may account for the shark. It should be noted that this logo is very likely the normal DHARMA logo.

In the flash-sideways timeline, a shark with a DHARMA logo inhabits the area around the sunken Island. ("LA X, Parts 1 & 2") Whether this shark is intended to be the same shark as in the original timeline is unknown.

Controversy

Initially there was controversy about the DHARMA logo on the shark's tail. It was rumored to have been put on the shark by the graphical department without sanction from the production team. However, in the bonus material on the Lost season 2 DVD ("Lost on Location" featurette for "Adrift") the production team have confirmed that the appearance of the logo on the shark was in fact intentional, just not intended to be visible that easily.

Sharks in the Hydra

Juliet mentioned to Jack that the room in which he is imprisoned was used for sharks and dolphins. It contains chains and a crude 'operating' table. It is part of an aquarium. But it is unknown why then the shark did not have the Hydra logo on its tail. This could be a production error.

Sharks in the The Lost Experience

The DJ Dan conspiracy site has a photograph of a shark carcass allegedly found off Australia's Great Barrier Reef. A DHARMA logo is pictured on the tail of the shark carcass. It is The Swan Logo. DJ Dan's podcast of June 8 indicates that the shark was discovered by a listener, who took the photograph and sent it to him.

In the clues released by the hacker Persephone on June 7 another shark carcass was seen. Accessed via the Institute for Genomic Advancement page on the The Hanso Foundation website (now offline), the clues consisted of several pictures of a tropical forest and a beach. On this beach a shark was visible. On close-up this shark was branded with the Swan logo as well.


Other references

  • Walt mentioned on the Island that "...[they could] be eaten by a shark."
  • Note 12 of the blast door map notations says "Carcharodon carcharias selective breeding facility?". Carcharodon carcharias is the Latin name for the Great White Shark. See Season 2 DVD full map image on the blast door map page, in the 12 o’clock position.

Trivia

  • In the "Lost on Location" featurette for "Adrift" on the Lost Season 2 DVD, it is said that in the special features section the creators of the shark model stamped on a DHARMA logo as an "inside joke". It was meant to be only for the creative team and a small number of very observing fans, but the shot was mistimed and the logo was much more clearly visible than originally intended.
  • On the April 24, 2008 podcast, answering a semi-related question regarding a time distortion effect, Damon and Carlton joke that the shark was born in 1805, making him 203 years old, and how Ezra James Sharkington is an old-fashioned name.

A detailed image of a raw shark

Sharks can be fished by members who have level 76 Fishing or higher. They require level 80 Cooking to cook and heal 20 hitpoints each. Sharks are fished with harpoons, but they can also be fished bare-handed which requires a Fishing level of 96, a Strength level of 76, and some completion of Barbarian Training. Raw sharks can be caught at any net/harpoon fishing spots; some locations are the Fishing Guild, Catherby, Burgh de Rott, Rellekka, Jatizso, and north-west of the Elf Camp. Sharks can also be foraged by granite lobsters, a level 74 Summoning familiar. Sharks give 110 Fishing experience per catch and 210 Cooking experience when cooked. Usually, players never stop burning sharks, even while wearing a skillcape; though, at level 94 cooking, they will not burn sharks if they wear Cooking gauntlets.

A player catching sharks barbarian style.

Sharks are among the most popular food for members because they are one of the highest-healing food that can be easily caught in large amounts. There are a few better foods, but these are difficult to obtain in large amounts, making them expensive and rare. Because of this, sharks are widely used for player killing, duelling, and questing.

Raw sharks can be offered to the Fremennik spirit Fossegrimen, who will then bless a lyre with two charges to teleport to Rellekka, although it is cheaper to use a bass while wearing the Ring of charos (a).

Raw sharks are the tertiary ingredient to make a Bunyip pouch using the Summoning skill. To make a Bunyip a player will need 1 green charm, a raw shark, 110 spirit shards, and level 68 Summoning.

An additional Raw Shark may also be caught if the player's Agility level is at least level 76, and the chance of this happening will increase until level 99, similar to that of crafting an additional rune during Runecrafting.

Players may occasionally get a big shark while fishing. These can be hung up in a Skill Hall in player-owned houses.

Cap'n Arnav

Sharks are also visible swimming around Cap'n Arnav's island (locked chest random), players can't see the body of a shark just the fin. All 4 of the sharks have different examine texts: "Selachimorpha.", "Sleek, sinister, silent and shark-shaped.", "Ooh, look, a floating fin." and "Like a dolphin, but considerably less cute."

Trivia

Before 2007, the price of sharks was fairly stable at about 1,000 coins each. However, real-world traders and macroers catching sharks brought the price down to as low as 400 coins each in the summer of 2007. In 2008, sharks were around 800 coins each. The popularity of PvP worlds increased the demand for sharks, however, and combined with inflation from drops on PvP worlds, sharks are currently worth around 1,500 coins each.
