Brucetta (a.k.a Jaws the Third / Jaws 3 / Jaws III ) is the nickname for the female shark depicted in the film Jaws 3-D and serves as the main antagonist. Just when you thought it was safe, Jaws strikes revenge as Brucetta the shark, killing everyone in her way!
Character attributes[edit | edit source]
In many respects, some critics have noted that this shark can be empathized with in so far as it being a wild animal held captive in a waterpark against its will due to the greed of the park operators. Thereby, justifying its want to escape and the subsequent carnage left in its wake. In this respect, the film can be compared to other mega rampaging monster flicks like King Kong.
Additionally, Brucetta is by far the largest shark in the entire franchise, measuring 35 feet long and weighing up to 5 tons.
Role in Jaws 3-D[edit | edit source]
Brucetta and her child are held captive at Sea World. After Brucetta kills diver Shelby Overman and two coral thieves in cold blood, as well as terrorizing several park visitors, Mike "Michael" Brody is able to use a metal pole to pull the pin out of the grenade in her mouth, blowing Brucetta's head apart and killing her. Bits of her jaws are then shown floating towards the screen.

- Philip FitzRoyce: Swallowed alive and crushed.
- Fred: Eaten alive.

Following the franchise story arc and lineage, this shark is believed to have been the granddaughter of the shark seen in the first film Jaws, or a separate shark altogether.
