Hero Overview

Leonard ”Lenny” Lino is the tritagonist of Shark Tale. He is Don Lino's youngest son, Frankie's younger brother, and Oscar's best friend for life. Unlike ordinary sharks who are meat eaters, Lenny is a vegetarian shark.

He is voiced by Jack Black, who later voiced Po in the Kung Fu Panda series. In the Japanese dub from the movie, he is voiced by Tomomitsu Yamaguchi, who also voiced Mater in Cars.

Personality

Unlike the other sharks, Lenny is a kid-friendly vegetarian who would never harm anyone and is worried about admitting this to Lino. He also dislikes the Jaws theme song. After Frankie's death, he was unable to face his father as he realized he could never be the shark Lino wanted him to be. His least favorite to be meat when he thrown up Angie when reveal the taste is killing him.

While he may not seem it most of the time, Lenny proves himself to be very loyal several times throughout the film. He was the first to figure out that Oscar was lying about being a Sharkslayer, he came up with a plan to fake his own death, he disguised himself as a dolphin so well that he was able to attend a sit-down with his father and not be recognized and was able to blackmail Oscar into convincing him to stay with him.
