The Reeban Electro-Fish is an aquatic enemy that appears in Serious Sam 1, Serious Sam HD and Serious Sam: The Random Encounter.


The Reeban Electro-Fish is an aquatic piranha-like alien from the planet Reeb. As the Electro-Fish has effective camouflage, it's not always easy to see them underwater.

Their electric attacks also disorient their targets upon contact. This makes the Electro-Fish very dangerous in groups, as a constant barrage of the electric shocks will constantly disorient Sam, making it difficult for the player to fight back without losing a lot of health/armor, especially on higher difficulties.


They are not as common as other enemies, only appearing wherever there is water, though they are common in the Sewers level, where a big Electro-Fish also appears. Large Electro-Fish also appear in the secret yard of strange heads in The Second Encounter as a secret.


When an Electro-Fish spots a target, it fires a bolt of electricity from the light attached to its head. The bolt will disorient the enemy upon contact, making it somewhat hard to hit the Electro-Fish for a second or two.


  • Electro-Fishes can attack the player even if they are on the ground, if the player is very close to an Electro-Fish.
  • If an Electro-Fish is out of water and stays on the ground for too long, it will eventually die.
  • Both individuals and groups of Electro-Fish can easily be taken out with the M1A2 Thompson. Its good rate of fire allows the player to quickly eliminate them without wasting ammo.
  • Single Electro-Fish can be taken out with the 12 Gauge Pump-Action Shotgun with ease. It usually takes about one or two shots to kill an Electro-Fish with it.
  • If a few Electro-Fishes are grouped together, a rocket or grenade can eliminate the entire group in one hit.
  • The XOP Flamethrower must not be used since the fish are encountered in water and the flamethrower would obviously be ineffective.
