“Sharpfin, the Baron of Motleyville, is rumoured to be the wealthiest person in the Cloudbreak Islands. It is said there is no junk he would not accept, as long as he could sell it back to you for three times its value ”
    —Story Scroll

Sharpfin is a blue dirt shark who is the baron of Motleyville and Head Mechanic of the Skylanders Academy. He first appeared in Skylanders: Swap Force. He pilots a slim airship that goes 'three times the speed of awesome'. He is rumored to be the wealthiest individual of the Cloudbreak Islands.


Despite his untrustworthy disposition, Sharpfin is willing to help those in need if they helped him greatly in return. He also doesn't participate in hard labor, since he has his companions to do that sort of work. In Skylanders: SuperChargers, Sharpfin gained a more loyal personality, willing to risk his life to save his friends.


Skylanders: Swap Force

Meeting Sharpfin in Motleyville.

Sometime before the Skylanders' arrival in Motleyville, Sharpfin was imprisoned by a minion of Kaos named Baron von Shellshock, and the town was taken over by his forces. After being freed, he tasked the Skylanders to rid his town of Shellshock. Once they did the deed, Sharpfin agreed to help them on their adventure by transporting them to their destinations with his airship. When the Skylanders defeated Kaos and his mother, Sharpfin mentioned about sticking around to help out against Kaos' remaining forces in the Cloudbreak Islands, thinking that there might be profit in doing good deeds.

Rift into Overdrive

While searching for Kaos at the ruins of his abandoned fortress, Sharpfin, Cali, Stealth Elf, Fling Kong and Head Rush were ambushed by Dark Drow. The encounter turned grim, when Count Moneybone arrived to retrieve his minions in time for Kaos to open a dangerous rift that pulled Sharpfin and his crew towards it. They managed to make it back to the Skylanders Academy, but not without sustaining injuries during the escape.

Skylanders: SuperChargers

Sharpfin now works as the Skylander Academy's head mechanic. He was assisted by Fender, Socket & Clyde who work as Sharpfin's pit crew.



Sharpfin is aware of Tessa's small animosity towards him. According to him, she is mad at Sharpfin because the blue dirt shark ate her enchiladas.


During the course of their journey, Sharpfin developed a friendship with Flynn, even finding himself willing to help others without expecting a reward in return. He, along with his dirt shark companions, even upgraded Flynn's ship after it was severely damaged earlier in the story.



  • When Flynn stated sharks don't have eyelids, which is in fact true, Sharpfin demonstrates that he does indeed have them by blinking. This shows that while there are normal sharks in Skylands, they differ greatly from Dirt Sharks.
  • Sharpfin shares Flynn's love for enchiladas.
  • As his name suggest, his fin is bladed with sharp yellow spikes.
    • With that said, his dorsal fin highly resembles Terrafin's if you take his Sandhog path.
    • However, Sharpfin has a tail while Terrafin does not. 
  • Sharpfin is the only bystander dirt shark in Swap Force to have an English accent. The rest of the bystander dirt sharks have southern accents.
