The Sharks are a gang of sharks who grew up in the streets of Bikini Bottom. The quartet appears in the episode "Sharks vs. Pods." The Sharks have a vehicle which is a boat with their name on it. There are four current members of the gang:
It was revealed that there was a fifth member named Jonnie. SpongeBob later replaces him.
Not much is known about the Sharks' past. At some point in time, the Sharks and the rivaling gang, the Pods, had a dispute with each other, which carried over to the end of the episode, where it was revealed that the two gangs were dancing troupes, and, to SpongeBob's amazement, weren't actually going to have a fight.
It is also hinted that, at another dance-off outside of the episode, the Sharks were either going up against or just witnessing Bikini Bottom's Internal Affairs as they danced. This hint was given when Sharkface admitted defeat, saying "It's over. Nobody beats the Internal Affairs."
The group is most likely a reference to the group "The Greasers" in the 1983 film The Outsiders.
