Increases the power of biting moves by 50% Serebii.
Strong Jaw increases the power of biting moves by 50%. Bulbapedia.

Super Fang is a biting move, no?

tyrunt doesn't get super fang
So? I was just asking a question.

Also, for future reference, don't post on questions a month or older without adding substantial information, because that is a bannable offense called "necro-posting".

The user chomps hard on the target with its sharp front fangs. This cuts the target's HP in half.

Simply because it's fixed damage, unlike the other biting moves. No matter how strong, or how fast, or how durable you or your jaw is, Super Fang will always deal 50% HP damage, whether you're the tiniest Pachirisu or the biggest Scrafty

Super Fang does damage equal to 50% of the target's current HP.
Although Super Fang does normal damage, its type does not alter the
amount of damage it inflicts. Super Fang's damage will be rounded up
to 1 damage if its calculation results in less than 1 damage.

super fang does always 50% of opponents HP and has no actual "power" it would be too OP and boring if super fang moved up to 75%. thats everything
hope I helped

look: I have even included a picture :D

I think its because Super Fang reduce the Foes HP by half and it would mess up if Super Fang did more or something.
