The 5-Headed Shark is the main antagonist of the 2017 American horror film 5-Headed Shark Attack.

Due to pollution, a shark off the coast of an atoll of islands was born with four heads and an insatiable appetite. After interrupting a photoshoot, the shark goes on a killing spree.


The 5-Headed Shark is nearly identical to a typical great white shark except for some differences. At the film's start, the shark possesses four heads next to each other; however, halfway through the film, the shark's tail fin transforms into a fifth head. The shark also possesses two pectoral fins.

Powers and Abilities

The 5-Headed Shark possesses the following powers and abilities:

  • Sharp teeth
  • Fast swimming
  • Multiple heads


The shark is killed after it is blown up by the main characters.


  • The film's poster depicts the shark as having 5 heads side-by-side on the creature's front; this is inaccurate.
  • The 3-Headed Shark, the main antagonist of the 2015 horror film 3-Headed Shark Attack, could evolve to The 5-Headed Shark if it wasn't died and 3 small heads would grow bigger.
