Welcome to Bandipedia!



Sharkbites are mutant shark enemies found in Salty Wharf in Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, as well as henchmen in Crash Bandicoot: On the Run!.


Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time[]

Sharkbites are short, pot-bellied mutant sharks with an anchor around their necks. They attack by eating a fish and quickly throwing its skeleton at the player character. They can be defeated with a spin, slide attack or jumping on their head. They are exclusively found in the level Jetboard Jetty.

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run![]

Sharkbites were added to On the Run! as a henchman in Season 5: 25th Anniversary!. He attacks by throwing fish skeletons down the path two at a time, which spiral around eachother over two lanes. Like all henchmen, he is defeated by avoiding obstacles to reach him and using the portal weapons crafted beforehand to send him back to his own dimension.


Crash Bandicoot: On the Run![]

  • In-game

"Wielding fish skeletons like swords, this toothy pirate searches the seas for treasure - buried, sunken or plundered from ships. The only thing fouler than his attitude is his fishy breath."
