Ecco The Dolphin Wiki

Sharks are a common enemy in Ecco. A variety of sharks will appear throughout the series in a variety of colors and species. Aggressive tendencies vary among the sharks, which the green sharks in Open Ocean more likely to attack than the Arctic Sharks in the arctic levels.

Sharks have a limited range of vision and are weak to attacks from above, below and behind. They attack with their jaws if Ecco is within sight. Charging or powerful sonars will disable them. In Ecco: Defender of the Future the Song of Shark will daze them.

In the Ecco The Dolphin 2 Ecco can transform into a shark for a period of time to bypass large schools of them and avoid physical harm.

In Ecco: Defender of the Future sharks sometimes attack in coordinated groups, making them a dangerous foe in this game.
