Role in the Series

The Dark-Shark Clan was first mentioned in the episode "Sharky Unchained". After constructing a dummy in his likeness, Sharky asks Bones to cover for him as he slips away from the Jolly Roger to help Captain Jake and his crew protect Never Land. Sharky reveals that he is the last member of the Dark-Shark Clan an ancient tribe of ninja-like warrior bent on preventing a monstrous shark-like creature known as the Shudder from rampaging every fifty years on Never Land. Sharky confronts the Shudder on Stayaway Isle but in the process, the Shudder escapes to Never Land with Sharky and Jake's team in pursuit. While chasing the Shudder through the island they spot the Shudder heading for the Sea Witch's Lair. Knowing the dangers of the witch's lair Sharky tries one last attempt to stop the monster but knocks the beast into a magical pool transforming the Shudder into a harmless baby shark. It was later revealed that the pool of Metamorphoses has the power to curse any who fall into by changing them into a monster and the only way to reverse the spell is another dip. With the danger of the Shudder no more Sharky ask Jake and his crew to keep his Dark-Shark Clan identity a secret from Captain Hook and the rest of his crew before leaving.

In the episode "Tiger Sharky Strikes Again!" Chaos Khan invades Never Land to reclaim the Sword of Chaos that his ancestors lost to the Dark-Shark Clan many years ago. With the danger of Chaos Khan looming over the island, Tiger Sharky inducts Captain Jake and his crew into the Dark-Shark Clan to defend Never Land and the Sword of Chaos from falling into Khan's grasp.
