"Baby Shark" by Pinkfong is featured on Just Dance 2020, Just Dance Now, Just Dance Unlimited, and 舞力全开. The routine also appears on Kids Mode in Just Dance 2020 and Just Dance 2021, but requires a Just Dance Unlimited subscription on the latter.
As the most played song ever on Just Dance Unlimited, Baby Shark was made free to play for one week from June 17, 2021, to June 24, 2021, as a part of the reveal of Just Dance 2022.
Appearance of the Dancers
The routine is performed as a duet. The coaches have thin black and white outlines in full opacity.
P1 is a girl with black hair in a low bun. She wears a light pink shell cap, a light pink and purple sweater with a zigzag pattern embroidered on it, and a pair of yellow shorts with light pink leggings. She is barefoot.
P2 is Pinkfong’s mascot. He is a pink fox with dark reddish purple eyes and wears a yellow crown and necklace. He also has a yellow star on his chest.
The background emulates the official music video. The Pinkfong logo and the words "Baby Shark Dance" appear at the start of the routine. The routine starts with both dancers looking around with a shadow of a shark upon them as the song starts, and the background transforms into a cartoon underwater landscape. Cartoon sharks of different colors swim side by side, each one represented by the lyrics; Baby Shark is small and yellow, Mommy Shark is medium-sized and pink, Daddy Shark is big and blue, Grandma Shark is orange and has reading glasses, and Grandpa Shark is pale green with wrinkles, a small white beard, and big white eyebrows.
The scenery changes colors through each verse and may feature an animal in the center. It starts off as blue without an animal, and in order changes to yellow with a starfish, green with a turtle, purple with a clam shell, red with an urchin, and black to blue without an animal. When the song speeds up, all the sharks chase after the coaches. During the chase, the background is first seen as purple and afterwards, shown as blue showing the shark chase in facial direction as the Baby Shark opens its mouth wide, as if to eat the dancers.
Then the scenery changes to another landscape where there are two orange sea corals that glow partially. A rock with seaweed bounces to the beat while the Shark Family appears, and they are apparently dancing and laughing at the end.
There is 1 Gold Move in this routine:
Gold Move (P1): Duck with your hands together above your head.
Gold Move (P2): Duck with your hands together below your head, near your chest.
