Zig & Sharko - Marina the Mermaid Promotional Image










Main character


No information

Marina is a mermaid and a main character in the series. Marina lives in a house under the ocean, and sits on a rock during the day. In Season 2, she decides to build a giant sand house on a nearby island, and invites her underwater friends to this house, away from the island's coast. Her archenemy is the Manic Mermaid.

She is very sweet and childlike in nature. She is constantly hunted by Zig who desires to eat her. Her bodyguard/best friend Sharko, however is always there to ruin his plans. She seems blissfully unaware of Zig's intentions, as she is generally friendly whenever she sees him. She is a very good singer, but Sharko tends not to like her music (with the exception of the episode "Marina Superstar," when he attends her concert). Marina's singing can be very dangerous, as seen in other episodes, such as "Cruising" and "War of the Clones." Sharko apparently knows this fact: she is a mermaid after all. Marina often plays volleyball and table-tennis with Sharko.

Sharko is not the only person seeking her affections. King Neptune also loves her, and tries to buy her love with lavish gifts. A giant male manta ray also tried to woo her in the episode "The Challengers."

Although normally kind-hearted, Marina can be somewhat selfish at times and cries when she doesn't get her way. She is also shown to have a temper when pushed to her limits. Marina loves to try new things, and is always dabbling in different areas throughout the show. She has tried her hand at nursing (in the episode "Nurse Marina"), being a flight stewardess (in the episode "Mermaid in the Sky"), and a lifeguard (in the episode "Save the Hyena").

Nonetheless, Marina is compassionate, polite, and willing to do anything to help her friends in need.


Marina has tanned skin, dark crimson hair with highlights, and a lime green mermaid tail. She wears a strapless green bra and an orange starfish in her hair. Marina's starfish occasionally changes expressions to match hers, and other times appears to have a mind of its own. Marina also has cyan-blue eyes with navy-colored pupils, pale blue sclerae and pink lipstick.

In season 1, she is drawn somewhat similar to the art style in Tex Avery's cartoons. This art style goes through a change in season 2. The second style looks more cartoony in comparison to her original design.

Official DescriptionEdit

Marina, la sirène, vit au fond de l’eau mais elle passe le plus clair de son temps sur un rocher à quelques encablures de l’île paradisiaque où habite Zig. Elle aime jouer au volley ou au ping-pong avec Sharko. Et malheureusement pour les habitants du coin, comme toute sirène qui se respecte elle adore chanter… mais elle chante comme une casserole !  C’est la plus belle créature du lagon que le poulpe masseur ou le homard coiffeur se chargent de mettre en beauté. Elle a une tonne de prétendants du roi Neptune à la gigantesque raie manta…  Quant à Zig, elle est loin de se douter qu’il en a après elle… 

Translation: Marina, the mermaid, lives at the bottom of the ocean but spends most of her time on a rock near the paradise island where Zig lives. She likes to play volleyball and ping pong with Sharko. And unfortunately for locals, like any self-respecting mermaid she loves to sing ... but she sings poorly! She is the most beautiful creature in the sea, and the octopus masseur or lobster hairdresser maintain her beauty. She has many admirers from King Neptune to a gigantic manta for Zig, she is far from suspecting that he is after her...
