Nanaue, better known as King Shark, is a major character in the 2021 film The Suicide Squad, the tenth installment of the DC Extended Universe.

He is a metahuman criminal whose father is believed to be the so-called Shark God. Most people dismiss him as merely a savage mutation, despite him being very sweet, friendly, and endearing.

He was voiced by Sylvester Stallone, who also played Jack Carter in the 2000 Get Carter remake, Toymaker in Spy Kids 3D: Game Over and Victor Von Ion in Ratchet and Clank. He was portrayed on-set via motion capture by Steve Agee, who also played Ash in Adventure Time, Gef in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and also played John Economos in the same film.


Before the events of The Suicide Squad, Nanaue was a descendent of an ancient shark God. It is assumed that at some point, most likely due to his hunger for humans, he was locked away in the Belle Reve Federal Penitentiary.

During the events of Suicide Squad, Nanaue joined Task Force X to destroy Jotunheim in Corto Maltese. After reaching the shores, Task Force X woudl rest, where Nanaue would almost eat Ratcatcher 2. After being stopped by Bloodsport, Nanaue and Ratcatcher 2 would become friends. Nanaue would later join the rest of Task Force X in rescuing Rick Flag, eating some of the guards where Flag was.

After finding Flag, Nanaue asked to help infiltrate Valle Del Mar, but would be told that, due to being a giant shark, he couldn't help find The Thinker at the bar. Nanaue would later help out during the assault at Jotunheim by placing bombs all around the building, where he would encounter a fish tank filled with fish. These fish would not be his allies, however, as they used their razor-sharp teeth to attack him. After Starro's release from Jotunheim, Nanaue would join the rest of Task Force X in defying Amanda Waller's orders and taking down Starro.

After the movie, Nanaue is released for his help during the mission and due to Bloodsport's blackmail.

King Shark:
..I no friends"
~ King Shark and Ratcather 2.

King Shark was a fairly dim and slow creature however a friendly one who had an almost childlike innocence about him. He didn't have anyone that he would call a friend until he joined Task Force X. However, despite this, King Shark would prove that he was much more deadly by almost eating Ratcatcher 2 and eating many members of the Corto Maltese army. Nanaue encounter Clyrax in aquarium believe that his new dumb friends then playing running like a child however when see them again he was happy until start attack him then after falling down he shed a tear in betrayal then he took his anger out by ripping off a Corto Maltese soldier’s head.


King Shark has a large, heavy, and semi-obese build. He is a humanoid great-white shark, and wears a pair of extra-large golf shorts as his article of clothing.

Powers and abilities


Nanaue's the strongest member of your team. You need him to get into Jotunheim.
~ Amanda Waller to Bloodsport.
  • Humanoid-Shark physiology: Nanaue is an amphibious, shark-like metahuman. He has the physical attributes of a human, such as speech and being bipedal, as well as a shark, such as superhuman physicality and aquatic respiration.
    • Superhuman strength: Nanaue is superhumanly strong. He was able to pick a man up with both arms and hoist him high into the air with ease before consuming him, as well as tear a man vertically in half with no visible effort. His incredible strength extends to his feet as well, allowing him to jump great heights without much effort.
    • Superhuman durability: Nanaue's body is much hardier and more resistant to conventional forms of physical injury than the body of a human. He can withstand falls from great heights, exposure to extremes in both temperature and pressure, high caliber bullets, and tremendous impact forces without sustaining injury. However, despite his great durability, Nanaue's skin was not able to resist the Clyrax's teeth penetrating his skin.
    • Superhuman stamina: Nanaue's advanced musculature is considerably more efficient than that of a human. As a result, his muscles produce far fewer fatigue toxins during physical activity compared to those of humans.
    • Regenerative healing factor: Despite his body's great resistance, Nanaue can sustain physical injury. If injured, his metabolism enables him to rapidly regenerate damaged bodily tissue faster and more extensive than an ordinary human being is capable of.
    • Amphibiousness: King Shark possess gills as well as lungs, enabling him to breathe both water and air.
    • Fangs: Nanaue has the hundreds of sharp teeth of a shark. They are very strong and can easily tear through flesh and bone, as he was seen easily eating a man.
    • Claws: Nanaue has short yet sharp claws at the end of each of his meaty fingers, which he can sink into enemy flesh.


  • Extra-large golf shorts: King Shark wears a pair of extra-large golf shorts as his article of clothing.

  • King Shark was originally intended by David Ayer to appear in the first Suicide Squad film, but was replaced with Killer Croc as there were concerns that the CGI to bring the character to the screen would be too expensive for the film's budget.
  • This incarnation of King Shark resembles the version of the character presented in the Harley Quinn cartoon. The resemblance is likely to be a coincidence, as the Harley Quinn series was released after filming for The Suicide Squad began.
