Sharkboy is a superhero from the family film The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3D.

Sharkboy is played by Taylor Lautner.


After losing his father at sea, Sharkboy was raised by sharks and learned to swim, fight and even bite like a shark.


Sharkboy's true name and his life before he became Sharkboy are largely unknown. It is known that his father was a marine biologist who called his son Sharkboy (it is unclear if this is a birth name or a term of endearment) and that Sharkboy too wanted to be a marine biologist. They both studied in a floating laboratory until the day that it was destroyed by a waterspout, killing Sharkboy's father. The now-orphaned Sharkboy was discovered by a school of sharks, who took him as one of their own. They taught him to swim, breath in water, and how to bite through most anything. He soon becomes a superhero who befriends the superheroine Lavagirl and a boy named Max. Together they were defenders of a bizarre world called The Planet Drool.

However, Sharkboy, Lavagirl, and Planet Drool itself only exist inside the imagination of Max. Max is constantly bullied at his school but another boy named Linus, who also steals Max's dream journal, where all his ideas and dreams are collected, then vandalizes it.  When Max attempts to get revenge, he is interrupted by Sharkboy and Lavagirl, who miraculously appear out of small tornadoes.
