​Vector's Shark is an adult great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) that lives in a large aquarium in Vector's fortress. Vector uses it as a pet and defense mechanism.


Despicable Me

The shark first appears in its aquarium when Vector is playing video games. When Felonius Gru tries to break into Vector's fortress, it pops out of a manhole and devours him in one bite, although Gru somehow manages to survive and escapes.

When Gru and his Minions are trying to steal back the shrink ray, the shark notices them and becomes angry. It tries to break out of its aquarium and attack them while Vector tries to get it to settle down, unaware that Gru is inside his lair. Later on, when Gru arrives to rescue Margo, Edith and Agnes and the fortress's entrance is destroyed, the shark jumps out of the water and opens its jaws, only for Gru to easily knock it down with a punch to the snout.


  • It is unknown what happened to the shark after Vector was stranded on the moon, though the possibility that Vector's father Mr. Perkins is currently caring for it does not seem all that outrageous.
  • Although it is unclear what the shark's gender is, it is implied to be male as Vector says, "Down, boy!" when it grows agitated.
