Fang is a radioactive mutated amphibious shark living in Camp Wawanakwa. He was originally a normal shark, until he was exposed to the radiation that pollutes the island. As result, he now has larger eyes, upper and lower limbs, and even the ability to walk and breathe on land. He is one of the most highly feared mutant creatures on the island, especially by Scott.
Just as any shark appearing in Total Drama, Fang is a carnivorous, cold-blooded hunter who devotes most of his time to finding ways to make lunch out of the campers. However, what sets Fang aside from the others is, thanks to the effects of toxic waste mutation, he is extremely cunning. He will lie in wait for his prey, and will follow them for extensive periods. Fang is also shown to be very vengeful, and will never drop a grudge against someone who wrongs him. Early in the series he develops an interest in Scott, after failing to eat the latter and having one of his teeth knocked out. He spends the rest of the series persistently pursuing Scott in an attempt to reclaim his tooth and eat him, refusing to eat any other contestants and even helping another contestant if it can help him get closer to his goal. An example of this is in Grand Chef Auto, where he drives Lightning through the challenge just because he said he'll take him to Scott.
Fang makes his first episode appearance in Truth or Laser Shark when Chris dunks the contestants in the lake to demonstrate the rules of the "getting to know you" trivia game. Fang attempts to eat the contestants, but fails to do so. When he eats Scott, the latter escapes, breaking off one of Fang's teeth in the process, and he keeps it as a souvenir. This prompts Fang to launch a manhunt on Scott throughout the season.
In Finders Creepers, Fang makes a short appearance when Scott attempts to hide the souvenir for his team in a grave in order for them to lose the challenge again. However, that ends up not happening after Fang pops out of the grave and begins chasing Scott only to fall into a grave shortly afterward.
In Backstabbers Ahoy!, Scott is heard mentioning the "Man Shark" in his sleep. Later, he bites the top half of Dakota and Bridgette's boat off, which was covered in food. While Brick is running underwater during the challenge, Fang pulls on his cord and then begins to chase him until Lightning pumps too much air into Brick's suit and Fang bounces off it. Fang chases the Mutant Maggots during the challenge until he is punched in the face by Vito. He is later seen next to Dakota who is shown hitting him with a bucket to keep him away, which angers Fang. At the end of the episode, he is seen circling Dakota, who is on a buoy, as she calls out for help.
In Runaway Model, Fang is shown trying to lure Scott into a trap using a slice of pizza as bait. Scott does not fall for this plan and instead tricks Fang into taking the toppings off the pizza. When Fang tries this, Scott cuts the rope with his "lucky shark tooth" and traps Fang in his own trap as he gets away with the pizza slice.
In The Treasure Island of Dr. McLean, the contestants find themselves stranded in the middle of the lake, giving Fang the environmental advantage to hunt Scott. When the Mutant Maggots try to sneak pass the giant squid while it is attacking the Toxic Rats, Fang shows up, scaring Scott. He then climbs onto their raft, but was punched away by Dakota with her recently gained super strength.
Chef uses Fang in Grand Chef Auto to guard Lightning and Jo once he catches them. Once they break free, Jo uses Lightning as a distraction in order to get ahead. However, Lightning makes a deal with Fang; if Fang helps him get to each station, he will bring him to Scott, which Fang agrees to. Fang manages to eat Scott at the end, but Scott escapes by spraying paint into his mouth, which causes Fang to spit Scott out of disgust.
In Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon, Fang is seen chasing Scott in the beginning of the episode and finally catches up. Scott finally gives up and tells Fang to eat him quickly. However, Fang is distracted by the noise of Chris' zeppelin arriving to the island and this enables Scott to escape after kicking Fang's groin. Later when the challenge begins, Fang shows up behind Scott and continues to chase him, but his leg accidentally gets caught on the rope of Jo's hot air balloon and he flies into the air with her. After Scott's wings are burned by the mutant goats, under Zoey's command, Scott lands on Fang, and along with Jo, they crash into the lake where Fang continues to chase Scott.
Scott attempts to trap Fang at the beginning of Eat, Puke and Be Wary using several snares. During the second challenge, Fang shows up at the finish line just as Scott is about to touch the pole. Scott attempts to run way, but sprains his ankle in the process. Scott also finally founds out that Fang has been chasing him all this time in order to regain the tooth Scott stole from him in Truth or Laser Shark. Despite this, Scott refuses to return Fang's tooth, stating that Fang still has hundreds of teeth. Fang tries to attack Scott, but falls into one of Zoey's pit traps. After Scott is eliminated, it is revealed that Chris has arranged for Fang to appear just as he is about to take the Hurl of Shame. Fang then takes his tooth back and joins Scott in the Hurl of Shame.
Before the battle between Cameron and Lightning in Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown, Fang rejoins the eliminated contestants in the audience and is chained down next to Scott. It is shown that Fang had "a little too much fun" with Scott after they were hurled, leaving Scott in a comatose state and in a "Trauma Chair" as a result. During the battle, Lightning deflects an electric blast from Cameron's handcrafted battle suit right at Fang's mouth, ironically destroying all of his teeth, much to Fang's devastation.
Fang (now with his teeth fully regrown) appears in Heroes vs. Villains as part of the challenge where he and two other sharks are guarding a key to the spa from the contestants. The contestants from season four (especially Scott) are noticeably afraid of his presence, while contestants from earlier seasons (especially Gwen) do not know who he is. After jumping off of the cliff, Lightning manages to punch Fang in the face. When the robot, falls into the lake, Fang, along with a few other sharks, attack the robot until it malfunctions, and causes an explosion thus freeing Alejandro.
Fang reappears in Suckers Punched as Scott's opponent during the boxing challenge. Scott immediately becomes paralyzed at the sight of Fang and the mutant shark brutally beats him, resulting in Scott losing the challenge. Courtney tells Fang he should be ashamed of himself, causing him to roll his eyes at her insult.
In You Regatta Be Kidding Me, in order for the raft he, Scott, Zoey and Duncan are on, to gain speed, Cameron uses Scott to lure Fang to chase him. Fang is then tied to the raft and the group starts to keep up with the others. Eventually, Fang is able to bite down on Scott, causing him to fly up into the air and land on the raft. Scott bitterly pushes Cameron into the water, attracting Fang to him. However, after sniffing him, Fang decides not to eat Cameron and leaves. In the confessional, Scott believes that Fang probably "wanted a meal, not a snack" referring to Cameron's smaller body compare to him.
In The Bold and the Booty-ful, Fang appears during Scott's part of the challenge where he is guarding the diamond that is hidden in his mouth much to Scott's displeasure. Fang then starts to chase Scott around but Scott manages to hide up on the sail and Fang waits patiently for Scott to come down. Scott then ropes Fang around his nose but the mutant shark easily pulls Scott down and drops several objects onto him. Fang then finally beats up Scott after Mal tricked him into walking into a rope trap and Scott wasn't able to retrieve his item from the mutant shark.
In The Final Wreck-ening, Fang appears during Chris's demonstration of the final challenge, as an obstacle in the swamp moat, eating a mutant fly. Fang attempted to eat Zoey but was punched away by a reappearing Mike and ironically loses his tooth in the process. Fang then starts to chase Alejandro around after Mike gave him the mutant shark's tooth. After the island is destroyed, Fang continue to chase Alejandro and Heather while they were in the water. In an exclusive clip after the finale, while Mike, Zoey, Gwen, and Cameron are rowing through the waters on a cabin roof, Fang is shown to continue chasing Heather and Alejandro in the water.
- Fang is the only mutated creature to use the confessional.
