First Appearance in Anime
Naruto Shippuden Episode: 243
Kumogakure (the Village Hidden in the Clouds) Training ground of Genbu (Turtle Island)
King tried to attack the Konoha and Kumogakure shinobi when Motoi was leading them, but Killer B told him to calm down as they were with him and were friends.
Later, when Naruto was given the fake task to make a list of animals who can help to carry ninja tools in the war, he seeks help from Condor to be the translator. Naruto then went to ask for help from King. He agreed to assist Naruto and gave the information about Chuji, Don, and Hippo Boss. King said that the three should not come face to face with each other, or they would fight and that can destroy the island.
King and Naruto heard some noise and followed it and they saw that Chuji, Don and Hippo Boss were fighting with each other. When King came, they stopped fighting and told that they were fighting over Armadiko.
When Armadiko came, they confessed, which made King angry because King had said that Armadiko was his mate. But then, Amadiko refused and told him that he loved Naruto, which made everyone mad and the four giant animals tried to attack Naruto.
Later, when Naruto started the ecological survey to check the gender of animals, he asked Armadiko about his gender which he refused to say. King and the other animals raised their voice against this saying that it’s not ethical to ask something personal like that. Soon, King and the other animals were very sad when they got to know that Armadiko was a male.
King seemed to be caring and yet had a leader’s personality. He is wise and intelligent. He understands the situation well and handles it nicely.
King is a huge gorilla with dark brown fur over his body, and he also has abs. His hand and chest have a lighter brown shade and he has green eyes. He has a scar on the left side of his body and his eye.
King seemed to be the strongest giant animal of Genbu and was easily able to defeat all the other giant animals.
