"BP's been outdone"

Films: Barracuda (1978)

Alias: None

Type: Mutant

Location: Ocean

Height/Weight: That of average barracudas.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Big companies will do anything to keep themselves afloat. Even if it means poisoning the world around them. But there was no need for oil spills to make the government an enemy of the fish in this film, just some serum that drove the barracudas insane.

History: The government had been secretly working on "the Lucifer Project" (such an inviting name) for some time. With experimented-on water, they would raise aggression in people so that they would call for war rather than avoid it. Alas, some of it got into the ocean, and some barracudas went mad with hunger because of it. And what better snack bar is there than the human body?

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Because the conspiracy fails to expose itself (for the most part), the barracudas are still out there, killing unsuspecting ocean-goers.

Powers/Abilities: None

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: .5-If you were looking for a fish that likes to mob you and rip you apart, then you can finally stop pinning the title on the piranha for once. Indeed, steroid-induced barra's are not the best concept to be lenient about when you're in the government.

Trivia: -While barracudas are indeed pretty aggressive fish, they don't always attack the nearest diver, and can come off as rather curious and inquisitive creatures. They're like stray dogs of the sea, in that regard.

-This film was also known as "The Lucifer Project". Considering how little the barracudas actually appear in it, how can you blame them?

Wouldn't it had been cool if there really was a gigantic Barracuda?

"Look what I've found!"

I think 99% of all divers would disagree.

They are indeed curious by nature.

This is just NOT his lucky day.
