* Sharpedo shares its {{pkmn|category}} name with {{p|Hydreigon}}. They are both known as the Brutal Pokémon.
* In a demo version of Ruby and Sapphire shown at Pokémon Festa 2002 in Japan, players started with a level 12 Sharpedo with no Ability. This was most likely done for the purpose of the demo only.
* Sharpedo's evolutionary line canmay be seen asconsidered a parallelcounterpart toof {{p|Camerupt}}'s familyevolutionary line. Both of them are dual-type Pokémon, both lines have identical base stat totals per evolutionary stage, both of their final evolutions are used by [[Team Aqua]] Leader [[Archie]] and [[Team Magma]] Leader [[Maxie]], respectively, and both of their final evolutions can [[Mega Evolution|Mega Evolve]].
* Sharpedo's Pokédex entry for Moon states "It has a sad history. In the past, its dorsal fin was a treasured foodstuff, so this Pokémon became a victim of overfishing." This is likely a reference to {{wp|shark finning}} in the real world, where wild sharks are caught, have their fins cut off, and the still alive shark is thrown back in the water to die. Because of the practice, many species of sharks around the world are listed as threatened or endangered by the IUCN.
