Tips to beat the Shark Guardians in Sonic Frontiers

There are two Shark Guardians that you can come across on Ares Island. You can spot them under the sand, thanks to their fins. After initiating the fight, the Shark will dive under the surface of the sand. Keep on your toes and run around to avoid getting hit when it jumps out. After a short while, you will get prompted to attack its tail. Attack the tail to grab onto it and get dragged across the sand.

While being dragged, you will get QTE prompts that you will need to follow. Each of the QTE prompts will be directional arrows. Move your joystick in the direction that matches the prompt. After a while, you will get prompted to attack the Shark Guardians back. Attack the Shark Guardian to make it fall over, allowing you to deal a lot of damage.

If you don’t manage to destroy the Shark Guardian in a single damage phase, it will dive under the sand again, and the whole fight will start over. Grab the tail and get dragged across the sand again to start more QTE prompts. This time, the Shark Guardian will launch rockets, and you will have less time to perform the QTEs. If you manage to survive long enough without getting hit, another damage phase will begin, giving you plenty of time to destroy the rest of the Guardian’s health. Make sure to keep on the lookout for Strider Guardians as well.
