  • 1900 attack with Umi, which can be activated easily using Mako's skill "Mystic Depths"
  • Can special summon level 3 or lower water monsters from your hand.


  • Can only special summon monsters from your hand.
  • Lowering its level can make it vulnerable to Possessed Dark Soul.
  • Summoning multiple monsters from your hand quickly can result in a card disadvantage. This will make it more difficult to comeback if your opponent can counter them due to lack of cards that can help with more draws.


  • Cost Down can be used to reduce the level of the monster cards in your hand.
  • Water Hazard can be used to special summon Hammer Shark so it doesn't use up a normal summon.
  • Hydro Pressure Cannon will be equippable to Hammer Shark if it's able to activate the ability at least once.

Add Magical Reflect Slime to the list of 3 or lower water monsters that can be summoned by this card. Might actually give you a chance to use it's effect against an opponent.

It is a great card for water decks.

Furthermore, When the game advances to the Zexal era of Yugioh it might be a staple card in the character deck known as Reginald Kastle.

Reginald Kastle surnames were called Shark & Later on Nash.

Reginald Kastle is a main friend/rival to the star of the shown Yuma. Similarly, I believe Reginald's role was akin to Kiaba role vs Yugi.

He was one of the greatest threats & greatest friends with the same pompous attitude which made that season very reminiscent to the Original Yugioh series.

Through the course of the Zexal Series Reginald Kastle deck evolved.

Reginald Kastle had 4 different main boss monsters through out the course of the series.

Original Boss in the beginning was:
Black Ray Lancer + Armor evolve form AKA Full Armor Black Ray Lancer

The above deck is really were Hammer Shark shined. Black Ray Lancer was a Rank 3 XYZ which needed Hammers effect to lower himself to level 3 + summon another level 3 for the XYZ summon.

Sadly, Hammer Shark fell a little out of favor in later parts of the series mainly due to the new boss monsters which Reginald acquired.

Yeah, I'll save Hammer Shark for later.

In case people want to know the bosses were: 1 - Black Ray Lancer 2 - Shark Drake 3 - Abyss Splash 4 - Silent Honor Ark Out of his 4 different bosses monster. I have to admit Shark Drake was my favorite one. It was probably the most dominate boss monster for the majority of the series. It was also the hardest to summon which always made duels awesome to watch! 3 level 4 monsters to summon? lo

Haha, I know what you're saying! Hammer Shark + Needle Sunfish = Black Ray Lancer would be brutal. A good XYZ with the bonus of lowering -500 ATK, thanks to the effect of Sunfish? Count me in! Shark Drake was my favorite too. Dominating, strong AND badass.

Can special summon Needle Sunfish, pretty cool.

You can also use it with Lost Blue Breaker for S/T destruction.

I think this one is better than Kaiser for the Mako decks. You can use it for Big Wave Small Wave and it also has a good effect to fill your field.
