The Sharkenodon, also known as Underbite Dragon, is a winged dragon beast which resides in cliff side caves near Toriko's house.
The Sharkenodon is a large reptilian dragon standing 3 meters in height, 5 meters in length and weighing over 1.5 tons. It has dark green scales dotted with purple markings and a beige underside. It has small claws, large feet and a long tail similar to a T-Rex, along with large yellow wing sides on its back which are large enough to allow it to fly. Its large jaw (the source of its nickname) is larger than its overbite and covers up most of its nose. It has a pretty ferocious appearance and a somewhat hunched posture but can straighten up if necessary.
It inhabits mountain ranges and caves in cliff faces and will attack anything that enters its home.
It possesses a strong jaw with which it can bite through most tough prey. With its large wings it is capable of flight.
It's valued not only for its meat, but also for its bones, which produce an incredibly rich broth. For this reason, Underbite Ramen (ramen made from the bone-wrought soup stock) has gained considerable popularity among ramen snobs. Its meat is very valuable, selling upwards of 60,000 yen a kilogram.
Toriko caught one near his house and sold it at the Central Gourmet Wholesale Market for around 40 grand a kilo. It can actually fetch a higher price, but he refused to do so as he wanted to make it affordable for poor customers.
