As pollutants gave rise to aberrations and abominations in The World Before's toxic depths, The Ancients simultaneously over-fished the seas, leaving nothing for the mutants to eat...


Orthrusharks are 40' long, silver-gray monstrosities that prowl the coasts in a never-ending quest for fresh meat.  Aggressive and territorial, they attack any vessels that enter their domain...and do so with such speed and ferocity that they Surprise on a roll of 1-4 on 1d6.

If an orthrushark successfully strikes the same target in the same round with both its bites, the subject must immediately make a Saving Throw Versus Death.  Failure indicates the victim is savaged, torn in half, and swallowed; success means suffering an additional 3d10 damage on top of that inflicted by the bites.  Those wearing Encasing Military Armors [see p. 115 of the Mutant Future Core Rules] are protected from the need to make a Save, but still take the 3d10 damage.

Orthrusharks have the bizarre ability to shrink in size, allowing them to stealthily cruise in waist-deep waters without penalty or risk of beaching themselves.  They can also adjust their masses so as to breach up to 75' in the air.  No further benefits are gained from their Density Alteration (Self) mutations.

Othrusharks are acutely sensitive to electrical fields, and are both drawn to, and irritated by, them.  Sustained electrical current will drive the beasts into an antagonistic frenzy.

Like all other giant fish of the class Chondrichthyes, orthrusharks are highly vulnerable to ingested explosives.  Grenades, dynamite, bombs, etc. do double damage if detonated from within the creature's mouth(s).

Mutations:  Density Alteration (Self) (Modified), Extra Parts (Heads), Frailty ("Explosive Sensitivity") [D], Increased Sense (Smell) (x2), Unique Sense ("Electro-Detection")

Designer's Notes:  This film went direct to DVD, so no official poster exists (necessitating use of the box art).
