Anglerfish is a minor antagonist of the 2003 Pixar film, Finding Nemo. Anglerfish is first seen when she entices Marlin and Dory in a dark chasm with her glowing dorsal fin before chasing them, as the two fish try to search for P. Sherman's diving mask. Eventually, she gets caught in the mask around a rock, immobilizing her, but not before attempting one last bite at Marlin and Dory. In the post-credits scene, Anglerfish is eaten by Blenny (who overcomes his fear of sharks and other predatory fish) in a single bite. She also made a cameo appearance in Up during Carl and Muntz's fight when Muntz strikes one of his exhibits with his sword. Anglerfish was most likely female as only females poss the glowing bait that characterizes the species. They are also larger and more dangerous than males, who are 40 times smaller than females.
