Very little is known about Conch King, as it was just introduced as Kandachi’s summon and did not play much of a role in the series. Also, the Conch King is just a part of the Naruto Shippuden anime and does not appear or receive any mentions in the manga, making it a non-canon character in the series.
Conch King originally debuted in episode 187 of the Naruto Shippuden anime. It first appeared in the Past Arc: The Locus of Konoha. Kandachi summoned Conch King to aid him in his battle against Konoha shinobi, Jiraiya, and Naruto Uzumaki.
Kandachi used Conch King’s abilities with hand seals. After being able to hold off Jiraiya and Naruto at bay, Conch King and Kandachi were ultimately defeated by Naruto with his Big Ball Rasengan jutsu.
Since Conch King has not been seen since this incident, it is hard to determine whether it is dead or alive. Unless new information comes to light that suggests otherwise, it is currently believed that it is alive.
There isn't much information available regarding Conch King's personality as it was introduced in the series as Kandachi’s summon and did not showcase any kind of personality traits. It abided by its summoner’s commands as with most of the summons.
Conch King looks like a big conch, as the name implies. But it has a three-part body structure, with only the tail resembling a conch and the other two resembling clam and oyster components.
The Conch King has a Water Release chakra nature, as suggested by its appearance and additionally, it also possesses Yin Release. The Conch King's enormous body gives it an obvious advantage in battle. It could also use various parts of its body as a weapon, like using its tongue as a whip and shooting spikes out of its body.
However, its genjutsu remains the most impressive weapon in its arsenal as it was able to render Jiraiya, Konoha’s sannin, unable to move once caught in its unique genjutsu. Interestingly, it can also blow air out of his lower body and hover above ground level.
