||This article is about the Hammer Dead Shark. For the living version, see Hammerhead Shark.
The Hammer Dead Shark is an uncommon enemy found in the Cursed Waters.
The Hammer Dead Shark is an undead variant of the Hammerhead Shark, and has a noticeably rotten, decomposing body, showing many areas of its skeleton, particularly its abnormally thick cartilaginous skull. Its fins are better preserved, but are still noticeably decayed. After being killed, the shark's ghost exits its body, leaving the rotting corpse behind in order to avenge itself by ramming into and destroying submarines. In reality shark skeletons are completely composed of cartilage, which means that instead of fossilizing the skeleton of a shark completely rots away, leaving only teeth and vertebrae fragments during fossilization.
The Hammer Dead Shark behaves similarly to its living counterpart, charging at the submarine and bouncing it around. However, it only has 8 health, and upon death, it will transform into a Hammerhead Ghost, which will chase the submarine, attempting to avenge itself with a suicidal ectoplasmic explosion!
