King Calamari is fought in the Sunken Ship after Mario unlocks the cellar with the password he got after solving all the puzzles (which is Pearls). First, Mario and co. will fight three of his tentacles, then another three. Then the party will walk to Khim. He is fought along with a group of three tentacles. After Mario and co. defeat him, they will gain access to the cellar, where Jonathan, the shark creature and the Fifth Star Piece are found.
In battle, King Calamari has the habit of tossing away one of the party members for a number of turns making it a 2-on-1 battle. He can also use special moves like Ink Blast and the deadly Sand Storm to weaken the party. However, King Calamari is weak to fire, so, Mario's flame moves like Super Flame is helpful in this battle.
