Glut is a minor villain in The Little Mermaid. He is a great white shark.
He is voiced by Frank Welker.
Glut is only seen in a graveyard of ships at the introduction of Ariel seen. She and Flounder are exploring a sunken ship collecting human stuff in it. But it's not very long before Glut discovers them. Flounder is left to watch for sharks, but he swims to Ariel since he's afraid of sharks, to which she tells him not to be a guppy. Offended, Flounder says that he's not a guppy. He is still reluctant to watch out for sharks while Ariel looks for human stuff. Little do they suspect or know that they're about to encounter a real shark.
Soon, Flounder discovers Glut, but Ariel doesn't at first. Not believing Flounder, Ariel tells him to relax, but she then discovers that Flounder was right after all. Glut pursues Flounder, and a chase follows. Just as he attacks Flounder again, he calls him a big bully and blows a raspberry at him. Glut then tries to eat Flounder again, but he swims off just in time and Glut gets caught in an anchor, and he's never seen after that.
Glut presumably drowned because sharks constantly need to move in order to live. Although, because sharks are pretty strong, they could easily get out of an anchor; so maybe Glut could've survived.
He attacks multiple times. The player can first leave the fight, but later, Glut has to be beaten to get to Ursula's lair.
- Glut's name isn't mentioned in the movie or in Kingdom Heart.
- Glut isn't a true villain since he only wants to eat. But because he's trying to eat a protagonist, that makes him a villain.
- Despite the fact that sharks and other fishes do not have vocal cords and as such cannot produce any sounds, Glut is clearly heard growling, snarling and even roaring in his scenes. However, this may have been added for dramatic effect. His noises were provided by Frank Welker. This may also be a possible reference to the infamous roaring shark of Jaws: The Revenge
- His death in the deleted scene may have been a reference to the climax of the original Jaws film.
