Kanaloa is an enormous, purple octopus with several light-blue spikes protruding from its head, as well as two large horns extending from its forehead. Despite being an octopus, Kanaloa's tentacles appear clawed at the ends, similar to a crayfish's. A series of teal spots mark its forehead. Kanaloa's eyes are perfectly rounded with teal scelera and bright yellow pupils, and just between its eyes is the emblem of the Zentopia Church.
Key of the Starry Sky arc
Note: Events in this arc occur only in the anime and do not constitute canon material.
Kanaloa first appears with its master Byro, listening to Byro as he speaks to it. Later, the two arrive just before Natsu Dragneel and Sugarboy are about to clash. Byro informs Sugarboy of their original goal and to dispose of anyone who stands in their way.
While Natsu and Sugarboy fight, Kanaloa and Byro leave, though they encounter Gildarts Clive along the way. A fight commences between Byro and Gildarts, with Erza Scarlet assisting Gildarts mid-way, angering Kanaloa when the octopus is hit with one of Erza's giant spears. However, after Mary Hughes informs everyone that she has obtained the clock part from Lucy, the two leave Erza and Gildarts to go meet up with her.
Kanaloa and Byro Cracy rendezvous with the other Legion Corps members and Byro receives the clock piece from Mary Hughes. Their mission complete, Kanaloa flies up into the air and carries the group away. Kanaloa, with the group on top of it, is later seen in the sea, where Dan and Samuel meets up with them.
Natsu laughs at Byro for riding on an octopus, but Byro tells Natsu to not underestimate Kanaloa, because it belongs to the Legion Corps and is a soldier, as the rest of them. After that a fierce but short fight ensues between Natsu and Kanaloa, since his motion sickness prevents him from fighting after he rides on the creature. However, Lucy later summons Taurus and this gives Natsu the chance to defeat Kanaloa, after she, Romeo and Happy support him with their skills.
After it's battle, Kanaloa shrinks and Byro puts it aside after praising it for its hard work.
Later, Kanaloa is summoned, as Byro wanted to perform his duties for the Archbishop.
After discovering that Fairy Tail has arrived, the Zentopia guards try stopping them but fail to do so. Byro then commands Kanaloa to do what they could not. Kanaloa then jumps onto the Christina. With Fairy Tail unable to stop Kanaloa, Christina is brought down, along with Ichiya and Kanaloa itself.
Later, Ichiya and Kanaloa, having reconciled, catch Natsu and his friends, who fall from the Infinity Castle, and search for Lucy along with them. Guided by Natsu's sense of smell, Kanaloa delivers him to her location in time and Natsu manages to save her.
