** On the same note as Displacement, shipgirls' body parts are often referred by the ship's equivalent; bow for head or hair, stern for butts, rudder for legs, torpedo bulge for body fat, horsepower for musculature, etc.

* CommonCrossover:
** The series overlaps quite well with ''Manga/ArpeggioOfBlueSteel'', despite the latter being a much older series, due to their shared reference pool of World War 2 IJN warships.
** There's also frequent crossover fanart with ''VideoGame/ToukenRanbu'', since both games were made by the same company and hosted on the same website, not to mention that most people consider ''Touken Ranbu'' to be ''Kantai Collection'''s SpearCounterpart.
** On a more individual level, there's a fair amount of fanart pairing(in one way or another) Nagato with Franchise/{{Godzilla}}. Not as surprising as you may think.[[note]]IJN ''Nagato'' was used as a target for atomic tests after the war, and actually survived the first nuke.[[/note]]
* CreatorThumbprint: Several artists use recurrent design elements for their characters, even if they are otherwise very different from one another.
** Shizuma Yoshinori (Nagato, Yamato, Shimakaze, Yukikaze...): Almost every shipgirl drawn by him wears distinctive [[CombatStilettos "Rudder Stiletto" high-heel shoes]]. Other main traits are being eye-catching/fanservice and later on, the designs working in traits of the actual ships (like the bows being the Akizuki class' stomach protection, with Iowa combining the two. The only one with a significantly different shoe design is Akitsushima and they are rudder ''wedges'' rather than the usual stilettos. He also has a thing about sentient turrets, demonstrated with the Rensouhous and the Long 10cm-chan. Coincidentally, all but two of his ship girls feature exceptional stats. The Yamato-class [[InfinityPlusOneSword need little introduction]]. The Nagato-class were the strongest battleships available before the Yamato-class appeared and PowerCreep kicked in. Shimakaze has above-average stats on par with destroyers who have second remodels; Yukikaze has ridiculously high luck apart from having similar maximum stats as the former; Amatsukaze has excellent durability and evasion; and the Akizuki-class have tremendous Anti-Air. Iowa is only second to Yamato-class in firepower and armor, while having superlative LOS and AA...as a ''Fast Battleship''. Finally, Saratoga has peerless durability and AA amongst Fleet Carriers along with a decent offense and plane count. Only Tokitsukaze features generic Kagerou-class stats while Akitsushima compensates for her poor stats with her unique gear (A sentient Flying Boat).
** Ayaki (Tenryuu, Murakumo, Nenohi...): Every ship girl drawn by this artist wear some form of [[AntiGravityClothing Floating Headgear]]. Additionally, all but one of them wear bladed anklets in their unremodelled form. They also tend to take on rather dynamic poses and rather eye catching outfits.
** Shibafu (Fubuki-class, Kitakami, Mogami, Ise-class, Akagi, several others...): Unfortunately, the shipgirls drawn by him [[OnlySixFaces only feature the same few faces or so]] as well as relatively BoringButPractical designs. He compensates this with consistent art as well as the tendency for some of his shipgirls to be obsessed with being fitted planes, even discounting his Aircraft Carriers. In spite of his limited style, some of his characters are quite popular and a few being effective yet gotten early.
** Kuuro Kuro (Nagara-class, Ryuujou, Hiyou, Akitsu maru): His shipgirls are usually Shinto-themed. His Nagara-class feature ''[[ZigzagPaperTassel Shide]]'' and all but two of his Aircraft Carriers are [[{{Onmyodo}} Onmyouji]]. Only his IJA and Submarine shipgirls are removed from this theme. Akitsu Maru ends up being a ''Buddhist''-styled Onmyouji and both Maruyu and I-26 are as removed from the theme as it is possible. He's a very firm believer in BuxomIsBetter with most of his designs being noted for curves (more so after his ArtEvolution, which produced a FanservicePack effect on his older designs)
** Bob: His shipgirls are ColourCodedForYourConvenience as he usually draws whole classes. The Tone-class (2 girls) are Green, the Sendai-class (3 girls) are Orange and the Myoukou-class (4 girls) are Purple. Shouhou is his only shipgirl who is "alone". Zuihou, part of the same class, is drawn by another artist.
** Kujou Ichiso: While his shipgirl output consists primarly of the Shiratsuyu-class, they are primarly known for getting ear-like flaps to their hair upon their second remodels (See Shigure, Yuudachi and Kawakaze), two of them also have their eyes changing color. Both Yuudachi Kai2 and Harusame Kai have similar hairclips. Furthermore, practically all of them share [[OnlySixFaces the same basic face]] at three-quarters with prominent cheeks.

** ''[[http://warship-girls.wikia.com/wiki/Warship_Girls_Wiki Warship Girls]]'' is Chinese game for the Android with a similar premise like Kantai Collection. However, unlike Kantai Collection which features mostly WW2 IJN warships, ''VideoGame/WarshipGirls'' features WW2 Warships from all sides of the War, and is also slated for an English release, which debuted at [=E3=] 2015. However, as of July 2016, due to bad blood between developer [=moeFantasy=] and disturber Patch Games, plans for an english have been put on hold.

Added DiffLines:

** Many fan artists of both sides of the Pacific has drawn Kancolle-styled American Fleet Carrier girls as wielding guns instead of bows or scrolls. The first USN Carrier of this game, Saratoga, does end up wielding a gun to launch planes (an oversized Thompson SMG to be exact).


Added DiffLines:

* PermanentPlaceholder: When the marriage system was first announced, it was called ''kekkon kakkokari'' (ケッコンカッコカリ), which means marriage (temporary) and implied that "marriage system" was just a placeholder name. ''Kekkon kakkokari'' would later go on to be the official name of the system on implementation.

** Displacement - Fanmade description for breasts; [[BuxomIsBetter the greater displacement, the better]]. Though there have been some certain exceptions (some of the flat-chested carriers) and inversions for that matter (some big-chested Destroyers). "Fuel Tanks" are seen as an alternative term.

** When the Shoukaku sisters were given their second remodels, the developers promised they would be able to operate jet aircraft. To further the hype, the [[http://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/Ne_Type_Engine Ne Type Engine]] was released as part of the November 2015 ranking rewards. However, for over a year, there were no jets available. Considering the case with ''Shinano'', to add even ''more'' insult to injury, ''Warship Girls'' introduced its first jet aircraft, the Yokosuka [=R2Y2=], into the game in Summer of 2016. Jets finally made it into the game in December of 2016 with the introduction of the [=R2Y2=], though it's obtained by combining the Ne Type Engine with the [=R2Y=].

** Some fleet girls representing ships from the [=IJN=], the Kriegsmarine, and the Regia Marina, that actually existed during WorldWarTwo have yet to appear in the game. The most blatant case thereof would be that involving ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_aircraft_carrier_Shinano Shinano]]'': Kadokawa had already released [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/2312428 Alpha Art of her in supplementary materials ''way back in 2013'']], but she has yet to make her appearance as of 2016. And with the successive debut of foreign Navies in the same year, (''Three'' of them in fact, [[spoiler:the latest being the Marine Nationale during the Fall event]]) the wait is expected to become longer.
