King Land Shark manga color

King Land Shark's color scheme

It is a gigantic creature in size that even towers over Battle Wolves. It has most of the features of a shark such as facial structure, a tail fin and overall body shape, however it has four muscular legs which allow it to walk on land. It has deep black eyes with red pupils. Its back is covered in rows of numerous sharp spikes and its entire body is covered in what appear to veins or crack-like markings. Its mouth is wide and grotesque, having massive gums that make up most of it, rows of sharp pointy teeth surrounding it and it appears to have numerous tentacle-like tongues coming out of its mouth. In the anime it is portrayed with two varieties of skin colors; in Jiro's Full Course it has dark blue skin and in Starjun's description it has pale beige skin.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Not much of its true strength is known, however as it is a Gourmet World species with a capture level of 4450 it is clearly a powerful and fearsome beast and the fact that it was shown fighting a Battle Wolf pack is a testament to its ferocity. Another event showing its strength is the fact that Toriko is not willing to try and fight one of them on his own and would only attack if his partner, Starjun, was willing to do so. It is rumored to have no hesitation about attacking one of the Eight Kings, showing just how tremendous its power is.
