|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #187|
Sometime after Pain killed Hanzō, Kandachi and a group of Ame ninja fled the country and went into hiding by taking over a village surrounded by a magnetic force that affects a person's chakra flow to the brain similar to genjutsu. Sukune interfered with Kandachi's takeover and resulted in his brutal murder by his summon, the Conch King. He held the women and children hostage and threatened if word of their hiding was leaked outside the village, the hostages would be killed.
As the right hand of Hanzō, he was quite a powerful shinobi. Like his superior, he fights mainly using the Summoning Technique. He can command the Conch King with hand seals. All of the hand seals performed also give the Conch King a signal to use a specified technique. Kandachi has shown an ability to cast a genjutsu on his opponent through the Conch King. The magnetic field caused by the tree strengthens this genjutsu, as the magnetism disrupts a person's chakra flow, similar to a genjutsu. Kandachi can also command the Conch King to propel above water. Kandachi could also hide himself in water.
