- ―King Shark in LEGO DC Super-Villains
Nanaue is the son of the shark god Kamohoalii and a human woman named Kalei, he was born in Hawaii as a shark-human hybrid with God-like powers such as hydrokinesis, the ability to heal any wound and the loyalty of every shark. Considered a Demi-God he lived in solitude to hone his powers and live with the sharks, only coming out of hiding to learn from his mother. King Shark's ravenous appetite eventually led him to consuming human flesh which he enjoyed far more than any other meat, he became a serial killer in Hawaii who ate any visiting swimmers. His activities have attracted the attention of Superboy and Aquaman on occasions.
In "The New 52," King Shark was redesigned to resemble a hammerhead shark, in contrast to his previous incarnations which resembled a normal shark.
In both incarnations, King Shark is a human-shark hybrid-styled big-figure. He is a humanoid shark that closely resembles the Hulk in body shape but with a grey color scheme and a shark-like head. His "New Earth" version featured in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham version wears a blue speedo with a white-and-blue-striped belt and white gauntlets with blue stripes. His head features white teeth.
In LEGO DC Super-Villains, King Shark's "Prime Earth" appearance is similar to the above but with a slightly darker grey color scheme on his body. His chest is a slightly lighter grey and his eyes are now solid yellow with no visible pupils while his teeth are now the same color as the rest of his head and less pronounced. He wears a pair of torn blue knee-length pants (possibly swim trunks or boardshorts) and has a shark's dorsal fin on his back.
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
This incarnation of King Shark possesses super-strength which allows him to lift, throw and otherwise manipulate large and heavy objects as well as allowing him to destroy cracked walls. He can also create and throw rock masses at enemies and to hit targets. As a character, he is immune to hazards such as toxic goo and gas and he has access to advanced swimming.
LEGO DC Super-Villains
King Shark's abilities remain mostly the same; he still has access to super-strength, the ability to create and throw rock masses at targets, and he can destroy cracked walls. He also possesses the ability to do advanced swimming, meaning he can swim faster than other characters and will automatically sink to the bottom of a body of water, allowing him to access underwater areas.
King Shark has also gained two new abilities in the form of Boost Lift, which allows him to help another (minifigure-size) character reach otherwise inaccessible areas by launching them up there. King Shark can now, like other big-figures, also perform Hyper jumps (albeit only in the hub world), which allows him to charge up his jump and leap to extreme heights and across extreme distances. King Shark, however, no longer has hazard immunity and is instead now only immune to fire damage.
