Shiranami (in Japanese: 白波), or better known as Sal or Syake-san, is the main antagonist in the 2013 videogame Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea. (as well as the 2020 re-release of the same name.)

He originally was thought to work for the Sea Kingdom until he was revealed to be a cunning and manipulative traitor working for the Sea of Death, in order to release Princess Mikotsu and full the sea of infinite madness and death.

He takes two forms in the game, shifting between both as he wishes. Sal is also the elder twin brother of Samekichi, son of Old and Namikaze, and the late uncle of Minami.


In his shark form, he appears as a white shark with oval-shaped red eyes and white pupils. He has a slight blush visible underneath his eyes and he is almost always smiling.

Upon revealing his true motives, the sclera in his eyes turns black and blood begins to drip from both eyes. He also grows four arm like limbs from below his fins.

In his humanoid form, Sal appears to be remarkably similar to Samekichi. His white hair is slightly long and messy and his dorsal fin protrudes from the top of his head. He wears a white suit accented with light gray. Six buttons are visible along the front of his suit. His shirt is dark gray and his tie is black. He also wears white pants, black shoes and black gloves.

Before he was corrupted, he had blue eyes and a blue kimono, switching to a black kimono the more he was corrupted. In the alternative universe, he wears a gray turtleneck sweater, a dark brown jacket, and light brown pants.


At the beginning of the game, he seems to have an innocent, very kind, and warm personality. However, after he reveals his position as the ambassador of the Sea of Death, his true nature is exposed. He is psychopathic, narcissistic, sadomasochistic, and insane. He is also shown to be a sore loser and a coward (as in him running way after stabbing Wadanohara) when things don't go his way. He has a deep, twisted love for Wadanohara, paralleling his brother's deep and honest love for her. He seems to be quite jealous of Samekichi, saying things like "Is he that good to you?" and getting visibly shaken after Wadanohara mentions Samekichi.


Before the events of Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea, Sal was a normal person who resided in a family with his brother and Namikaze, his mother. Following Namikaze's suicide, Sal eventually joined the Sea of Death, sinking his soul into darkness and becoming corrupted by Mikotsu.

In the true ending, Sal stabs Wadanohara to wound her, but Samekichi intercepts and punishes Sal for his crimes by killing him under his own request.

In the epilogue, Samekichi talks to Namiho (the aunt of Sal and Samekichi), as he explains that he failed to save Sal's soul and had to end his life, While Namiho explains that she should be the one that's sorry, Namiho comes to her sister's grave, shows aggression towards Sal, and leaves the two while telling them both to rest at last.





  • Sal's name in the original Japanese version of the game is "Syake-san", Syake meaning salmon.
    • However, despite whatever variation it is, this is said to be a nickname, as his real name is Shiranami.
  • In the game, it was believed that after Mikostu was sealed, an ambassador of the Sea of Death will arrive, for years, no one could find them, but he was there all along.
  • As stated in the physical copy of the manga volume one, his favorite color is red, his favorite food is seaweed and sweet white things, and his specialty is long-distance swimming and having a cute appeal.
  • As of September 7th, 2017, Sal has been ranked on the eleventh place on the Deep Sea Prisoner popularity poll.
  • Sal doesn't have a character portrait for his humanoid form.
  • It's possible that Sal was cremated after his death as in to prevent the Sea of Death having a new leader.
