Parental Kangasharks are enemies in Mother 3. As their name suggests, being a portmanteau of parental kangaroo and shark, they appear as a hammerhead shark's head attached to a parental kangaroo's legs and tail. It also inherits the pouch of a parental kangaroo. In battle, they have rather strong attacks, and their young will occasionally cheer them on, healing them for a significant amount.

Its battle sound is Battle Sound 34 which falls under Code Numbers 861 for regular attack, 862 for Smaaaash! and 863 for Miss.
