Summary: You ever hear that guy at the friendly gathering who's constantly telling that one joke? The one that was kind of funny once, but it could only be told in so many ways before everyone realized just how obnoxious it was? Imagine that symbolized by a movie franchise. And there we have the Sharknado films.

History: Out of nowhere, freak storms have been breaking out. Huge twisters are appearing in the oceans. And worst of all, they're heading towards land and carrying with them hundreds of sharks that go flying everywhere to chomp on people. We follow the misadventures of Finn and April as they and their friends somehow manage to survive one Sharknado catastrophe after another.

Notable Kills: All over the damn place. We have the mere concept, sharks eating people in space, a whole bunch of cattle being swept up as a snack, a T.Rex getting eaten by a great white, the works. But most of the time, it's sharks landing in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Final Fate: To say things go flamboyantly off the rails more and more as the franchise carries on is an understatement. The Sharknadoes ended up getting blown up, shot by laser beams from space, imbued with radiation to take the form of a giant shark, incurred the wrath of a shark God, and all other sorts of insanity. It all ended when time travel was thrown into the equation, and after we suffered through ruined timelines, Neil deGrasse Tyson as Merlin, and an evil robot April, Finn made it so that the entire franchise never happened. FFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU----------

Powers/Abilities: Sharknadoes pick up almost exclusively sharks, with species usually being great whites, blue sharks, or hammerheads, though less common sharks are not out of the question. They are also incredibly durable storms.

Weakness: Heavy artillery, though the individual sharks can be killed via conventional means.

Scariness Factor: 3-Positives first, the concept of a storm hurling large oceanic predators at people is not far-fetched, and is a rather scary concept. If the teeth don't get you, the collision will. But it's all muddled by crap CGI and the fact that things just get increasingly ridiculous to the point where you just wonder when it's all gonna end.

Trivia: -Storms are capable of making it rain animals. Due to intense winds, the most common rainstorms of animals involve fish and frogs. But usually, it's nothing bigger than that.

-This wouldn't be the first time that the actor of Finn, Ian Ziering, tackled monstrous destroyers. He was the voice actor for Nick Tatopoulos in "Godzilla: The Series". Trust us when we say that old show is a better usage of your time.
