by at .  Updated at .

Yay for Shark Week!

This annual tradition on Discovery Channel isn't adored by celebrities around the globe, along with regular television viewers in their underwear.

In honor of the yearly seven-day event, we're here to pay homage to a handful of famously fictional hunters.

We may now want to cross their path in the water, but we're happy to sit back and let them entertain us on screen:

1. Jaws

Who else could get this list started? Everyone say it together now: We're gonna need a bigger boat.

2. Bruce

Bruce stars in Finding Nemo. He tries to eat Nemo and Dory at one point, it's true. But he ends the film by remembering that "fish are friends, not food."

3. Jaws from James Bond
