The Barracuda is a minor antagonist in Finding Nemo.
The barracuda is seen in the beginning of the film as it looks at Marlin and Coral. Coral sees her eggs and rushes to protect them. Marlin tries to help Coral, but the barracuda knocks Marlin unconscious and swallows Coral and her eggs, except one that later becomes Nemo.
- The barracuda can be heard roaring as it attacks Marlin and Coral. In a similar vein to Glut from The Little Mermaid, this may have been done merely for dramatic purposes.
- In real life, barracudas do not eat clownfish (or any other kind of fish) eggs.
- It is similar to Scar, The Pirates and Man as they both killed the hero's family.
