Prionace is a genus.


Prionace is a genus of fauna in No Man's Sky. Generally referred to as sharks, seasnakes, seawraiths, or similar terms, depending on their physical appearance. Prionace species are found exclusively underwater, and are almost always predatory. Often they are solitary. Although they may be found at any depth of water, they will sometimes have issues spawning in very shallow pools, either not spawning at all or exhibiting glitchy behaviour.

Major Variants & Characteristics[]

Prionace has two major variants, with some diversity within each subgroup.

Shark-like Variant[]

  • Generally propel themselves by wavelike movements of the fish's body and tail, and in some species, movement of the fins.
  • All species have visible fins on their sides, and a fish tail.
  • All species have two eyes.

Wraith-like Variant[]

  • Propel themselves with wavelike movements of the body.
  • Long, wraith-or-snake-like bodies.
  • Usually no visible eyes, or multiple eyes (4 or more).
  • Leech-like mouthparts

Shared Characteristics[]

  • Much larger than Ictaloris species.
  • Not found in schools.
