Chain-Saw Fish[1] are enemies encountered in the game Virtual Boy Wario Land. They resemble real life sawsharks, although wearing a hockey mask with a chainsaw protruding outward. They are found in several underwater stages of the game, first being seen in Stage 3. Chain-Saw Fishes swim back and forth across an area. If Wario is nearby, they will frown, and then swim at high speed towards Wario, aiming to harm him.

Chain-Saw Fishes can be defeated by striking the underbelly of the fish. They can also be destroyed by the flames of Sea Dragon or King Dragon Wario.
