* AutomaticCrossbows: uses one, though technically it's a pump-action crossbow, as the Izanami crossbows that the carriers use to launch their planes must be pumped to load another bolt from the underfed magazines. It's also based on the explosive-tipped pump-action crossbow seen in VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2.

* BritishEnglish: naturally, a frequent user of British slang - and not surprisingly, throws a lot of insults that are used in the VideoGame/KillingFloor games.

Added DiffLines:

* ChestBurster: caused not by an alien, but by huge black and red swords that Jeannie apparently keeps inside her body...or creates them within her body.


Added DiffLines:

* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: her MO when she becomes Vatista.


Added DiffLines:

* PainfulTransformation: her full transformation into her Vatista Install - she gains a set of six mechanical wings, but they burst out of her back, and she begins using black and red swords that she either keeps inside her body or generates inside of it, but to deploy them, they must rip their way out of her body. Subverted because she apparently shows no expression of pain while doing any of the above.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBird: [[spoiler:appears to have become this, from what observations Damon has made of her after Operation South Town, in light of Shigure's death.]]


Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: following her Abyssalization and her restoration, Shoukaku is definitely less hesitant and more prone to violence and retribution than before, best exhibited when she is in combat or when she or someone she cares about gets taunted. Otherwise, she is the same as the original Shoukaku from before.


Added DiffLines:

** even more so after her Abyssalization - Shoukaku's TAC-50 can now liquefy the Abyssal Nydus Worms with a single charged shot.


Added DiffLines:

* PhallicWeapon: treats her [[spoiler:Binary Rifle]] like one, even giving it an innuendo in the middle of combat during Operation Hammer Down. Goya doesn't take too well to this.


* CannotSpitItOut: it's revealed in chapter 393 that she's been slowly developing feelings for Damon, but due to all of their work, operations, and Damon's own self-imposed obligations to many of the destroyers, Mutsu has been holding back.



* StarterEquipment: she is the first battleship Damon finds in the story.

[[folder:Battlecruisers and Battleships]]

!Nagato-Class

!!Nagato

* TheAce: there's a reason why Damon assigns her as the default flagship for the fleet unless otherwise reassigned.
* {{BFG}}: primarily wields light machine guns or high-capacity squad support weapons like the M-27 IAR as her firearm of choice. Of course, there's her actual [[CaptainObvious battleship guns, but those go without saying.]]
* CutenessProximity: averted; even though Toshi and Yoru, the fleet pets, have been running around in Damon's house in New Chicago, Nagato hasn't made a move on them. Yet.
* {{Determinator}}: carries the triple threat: a 9 in endurance, 80% Critical Damage Resist, and 80% Will. [[spoiler:The fact that she's made it through her Coalition tenure mentally wholly can also count, if only for the reason that so many other girls didn't.]]
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: averted; she keeps her strength under control easily and uses it when she deems it necessary.
* FrontlineGeneral: her Command passive ability allows her to field orders to the fleet much like Damon can and slightly buffs all ship girls' combat attributes if they're fighting in front of her.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler:as a result of her and the other ship girls' position in Charlotte, Nagato was forced to work as a prostitute in a large and famous casino hotel. This being said, unlike other ship girls who have suffered sexual exploitation over the course of the story, Nagato remains the only one to not be fazed by it at all, because if she didn't do so, Murasame would have had suffered something even worse.]]
* MissingBackblast: averted; when Nagato launches an RPG warhead indoors, the blast goes off a little too closely to Hatsushimo and Wakaba, and they're sent flying.
* MistakenForGay: when they first meet in Charlotte, Nagato [[spoiler:is in the middle of her shift as a prostitute at the Fantasy Express hotel]], so judging by Damon's unwillingness to give her any kind of sexual attention, she comes to the conclusion that Damon prefers men, though this is quickly rectified. This is a joke that others will bring up from time to time regarding Damon's heterosexual-yet-abstinate nature.
* NiceGuy: she has a 100% Comradeship rating.
* RepressedMemories: the story makes it a point that all ship girls are exactly aware of the details of their past lives as warships, so this is averted carrying over from the game - [[NukeEm Nagato knows exactly what that enormous light was.]] But then again, she's never brought it up in the story so far.
* TheStoic: maintained; whenever she is portrayed, she's always serious and duty-driven, without the usual NotSoStoic tendencies that fandom tends to give her. She does have a few moments where she seems she'll break this mold, but nothing that truly breaks her character.
* StoneWall: subverted because, well, [[CaptainObvious battleships are quite powerful.]] Presence of offensive capabilities aside, she's already one of the tankiest, if not ''the'' tankiest, ship girls in the story with 2000 armor points and 3500 health points, and her Big Seven passive ability takes this UpToEleven by giving her a few but powerful defensive buffs and make her armor more effective at mitigating damage than normal. In addition, so far in the story, no matter how bad the battles become, the battleships have ''always'' survived.
* ThereWasADoor: during the fleet assault on the Berlin university, Nagato breaches a wall...with her shoulder.

!!Mutsu

* {{BFG}}: has run a small gauntlet with the heavy firearms in the story, such as the LSAT LMG, the M82-A1 anti-materiel rifle, and the RPK LMG.
* BornUnlucky: averted in the story; as unlucky as her historical self may have been, compared to the fates of other ship girls the fleet finds over the course of the story, Mutsu is far from unlucky.
** Funnily enough, her Playing With Fire passive debuff status makes it so that her armor has a 15% chance to let an incoming attack completely ignore her armor.
* CatchPhrase: subverted; she drops the "My, my" line a few times, but not enough to label it as a CatchPhrase off this story alone.
* InSeriesNickname: when they first meet, Damon calls her "Mutslug" because her metal head antennae make her look like one. [[spoiler:This becomes HilariousInHindsight because the Metal Slug and the Slug Gunner show up to join the fleet.]]
* LampshadeHanging: in her Fleet Log, she wonders why people thought investing time and money into developing ship girls was a good idea when there may have been so many other military technologies they could've gone after instead.
* ManOnFire: her Playing With Fire passive debuff status. She gets debuffed if someone uses any fire-related abilities near her, and the fire-related buffs that some ship girls can give out don't buff her; instead, they debuff her even more.
* NiceGuy: has a Comradeship rating of 100%.
* StarterEquipment: she is the first battleship Damon finds in the story.

!Yamato-Class

* AwesomeButImpractical: averted, as the story does not follow ingame mechanics faithfully. Musashi is seen being fielded in every combat operation ever since her introduction, despite the projected "cost" of her doing so.

!!Musashi

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: a slight one, but she starts off as incredibly hostile towards Damon once he tells her that he's willing to trade his entire fleet to bring back his parents.
* AppealToForce: She had originally planned to use her own power to bully her future admiral into changing her command prompt.
* BerserkButton: as her first conversation with Damon suggests just before their assault on the secret Abyssal base in Newfoundland, anything that implies harm for the fleet or otherwise may suggest that ship girls are expendable triggers her.
* {{BFG}}: a standout example in the fleet: she is the only battleship to wield a sniper rifle as her primary firearm. On top of that, it's an anti-materiel rifle...''on top of that'', it's no ordinary anti-materiel rifle - it's the [[http://www.militaryfactory.com/smallarms/detail.asp?smallarms_id=936 25mm M109-A2.]]
** as a Yamato-Class battleship herself, it's only natural that Musashi possess the penultimate battleship ability, the Yamato Cannon.
* BigEgoHiddenDepths: but for a different reason compared to her ingame appellation. She's very proud of her Japanese heritage, but she cultivates an acute resentment of Americans and the US due to Japan's ultimate loss in the war and all the pain and suffering they'd caused onto her comrades. It only gets worse when she's told of the tragedies some of her fleet comrades have had to go through so far, and the ones that she learns of as time goes on, particularly during the Coalition campaigns.
* BoisterousBruiser: subverted, she hasn't uttered a single boast, perhaps due to her slight AdaptationPersonalityChange.
* BoobsOfSteel: One of the bustiest shipgirls and so strong she uses a 25mm GrenadeLauncher as her primary weapon.
* BornUnlucky: averted from the game; because she and other ship girls were found at the Norfolk Naval Yard, as was their intended shipping destination before the nuclear war, the Coalition factions were working to secure her. Had the fleet not intervened at the time that they did, Musashi and those other ship girls would have found themselves in Coalition hands.
* CharacterDevelopment: while she begins as hostile towards Damon for much of the story, her opinion of him finally changes after [[spoiler:Whiskey Hotel]], because by that point even she cannot ignore the extraordinary effort he's made for the sake of the fleet.
* {{Charisma}}: a solid 9.
* {{Determinator}}: keeping true to her ingame stats, Musashi also has the triple threat: an immense 14 in endurance, 100% in Critical Damage Resist, and another 100% in Will.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: While there are other shipgirls who dislike or hate working with Americans, she alone stands out in growing ever more hateful of mankind the more she does battle with the worst of us.
* HiddenDepths: Of all the people you might expect, it is surprisingly enough Musashi who asks in chapter 311 if there's really no nonviolent solution to [[spoiler:the imminent Italian civil war.]]
* LongRangeFighter: stands out among the battleships because she is the only one who wields a dedicated long-range firearm, a 25mm grenade sniper rifle, in combat.
* MightyGlacier: is more this than Nagato is due to her higher defense rating (11) and slower speed (4), with the same armor and health points as her. Her passive ability, Stubborn, cranks up the notch on this trope by allowing Musashi to take 50% less damage from all incoming attacks when her health drops below 50%.
* RealityEnsues: as convenient as it might be, a short time skip of sixty-five years isn't quite enough to resolve the deeply entrenched feelings that some of the ship girls have against the United States and its people, and Musashi is one of them. Her time in the US has only served to worsen those feelings for her, given all the things that have happened to her comrades at the hands of the Americans.
* SlaveToPR: Self-inflicted; as revealed in her Fleet Log, while she approved of Damon's ultraviolent execution of the Harpers of Nashville, her long-cultivated anti-Damon image meant that she could never admit it. [[spoiler:This changes after Damon rescues the fleet from Blackwood.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: like many of the usual examples of this in the game, in this story, Musashi seems to lose this trait and addresses herself normally.

!Kongou-Class

!!Kongou

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: as is the pattern with many of the characters portrayed in this story, Kongou is no exception: her BoisterousBruiser, ClingyJealousGirl, GenkiGirl, and LargeHam tendencies are downplayed, though she still keeps varying degrees of all of these. Her introduction into the fleet is the time when her personality is the most drastically changed from the game, due to her forced affiliation with the Inner Circle and the Abyssals and her initial deep distrust of Damon because of how they first met. She rapidly improves once she joins the fleet to return to the more traditional Kongou.
* {{BFG}}: her Yamato Cannon.
* BritishEnglish: naturally, a frequent user of British slang - and not surprisingly, throws a lot of insults that are used in the VideoGame/KillingFloor games.
* CainAndAbel: subverted. During the London operation, there was a chance for Kongou to fight against Haruna due to the circumstances surrounding the operation, but thankfully for the two sisters, they don't actually meet each other while hostilities are up.
* CultureChopSuey: Lancashire accent? Check. Great liking for tea? Check. British heritage? Check. Japanese fluency? Check. Modified Japanese shrine maiden uniform? Check. Desu? Absolutely check.
* DeadlyGas: subjected to [[spoiler:Nova Gas]] after being defeated by the Inner Circle Agents in chapter 378.
* ElementalPunch: punches a Ne-Class and lights her head on fire while doing it in chapter 301.
* GratuitousEnglish: also averted for Kongou, as she speaks with a fluent Lancashire accent that corresponds with her original construction ship yard location, Barrow-in-Furness.
* HeroicBSOD: suffers a brief one in chapter 94 when Damon tells her that she isn't his type.
* LethalChef: it's like she's taken it upon herself to be the resident Hiei of the fleet - her curry one night knocks Shoukaku out. Thankfully, Damon is there to salvage her curry and at least make it edible.
* LightningBruiser: just like her ingame rendition, she hits hard and has powers like her Burning Love and Yamato Cannon that also hit hard, while also being quite fast and tough due to her fast battleship ship type. This is also reflected in her stats on the stat sheet.
* LiteralMetaphor: her [[CatchPhrase Burning Love]], which is now an attack that releases [[PlayingWithFire an explosion of flames immediately around her.]]
* MegatonPunch: when she performs her ElementalPunch on the enemy Ne-Class in chapter 301, she also happens to send the Ne-Class flying forty meters backwards.
* MythologyGag: she parries an incoming shell with the back of her hand, just like in the anime.
* NukeEm: [[spoiler:her objective during Operation London as ordered by the Inner Circle was to throw a nuclear device into the sinkhole in the center of London.]]
* ThePowerOfLove: what her Burning Love ability is dependent on for the kinds of effects it will have on an enemy (or even an ally). As her affection with Damon grows or falls, so too will the effects of her Burning Love change accordingly.
* RammingAlwaysWorks: if you mean to dislocate Damon's hip, as she does in chapter 277, then of course it does.
* RealityEnsues: her fight with Shiranui. At the end of the day, even though protocols are indeed quite amazing when it comes to combat performance enhancement, a destroyer should not be able to go toe to toe with a battleship, at least not one with a strong ability like Kongou's Burning Love.
** is the recipient of an instance of this as well, as Damon berates her after her curry knocks out Shoukaku, reminding her that simply putting her heart into something she doesn't know how to do properly won't all of a sudden make it good.
* {{Shoutout}}: Kongou is apparently a fan of throwing VideoGame/KillingFloor insults to her enemies.
** [[spoiler:the sword she gains as a result of Damon's YRC is most likely the [[VideoGame/FireEmblem Sword of Seals.]]]]
** [[spoiler:and ''that'' sword can turn into the [[Manga/ArpeggioOfBlueSteel other Kongou's]] Icicle Sword with energy from her navitasium cube. She can also instant-transmission like the other Kongou can, by way of thrown fireballs, and gains a Klein Field, but only with a navitasium cube.]]
** [[spoiler:in chapter 301, she takes out an entire squadron of Abyssals by herself with her [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Kongou Kokuretsu-Zan attack.]]]]
* StoneWall: as suggested by her stats. While her hit points are lower than average for battleships because of her fast battleship ship type at 2000, she has the second-highest amount of armor points at 2500, tying with Musashi of all battleships, second only to Erin. She also has a tremendous defense rating of 12, when normally the max for any single rating category is supposed to be 9. These are [[MeaningfulName all references to Kongou's name]], which literally means "Indestructible" in English.
* TearsOfBlood: one of the results of being exposed to [[spoiler:Nova Gas]].
* VerbalTic: while she keeps her trademark "Desu!", she doesn't say it as frequently compared to her ingame rendition because she's actually annoyed by it due to her case of CultureChopSuey, considering it very arbitrary and random that her developers would program her to have such a tic when she's got a British accent.

!!Haruna

* CainAndAbel: subverted; she almost ends up having to fight against Kongou during the London campaign, but they narrowly avoid having to do so.
* CatchPhrase: subverted heavily, you can count the number of times Haruna says that she's alright in the story with the fingers on one hand. Incidentally, it's also the name of her one passive ability...that allows everyone fighting around her to ignore any insanity gained upwards of 30%. Anything above that, however, and they will still suffer the entire penalty.
* HumbleHero: maintained in this story, most notably through the conversation that she has with Benjamin: she insists that Benjamin shouldn't abuse his position of power in the fleet as a fleet programmer in efforts to track down the missing Kongou-Class, Kirishima and Hiei.
* InformedAttribute: in the game, while Haruna never says this about herself, Kirishima notes that Haruna is just as intelligent as she is. This detail carries over into the story, as she possesses a [[TheSmartGuy strong intelligence rating of 11.]]
* LightningBruiser: just like her sister Kongou. Even though she is a lesser example of this, she still qualifies as a fast battlecruiser with powerful armaments, a fast speed rating of 8, and respectable armor and hit points at 1800 apiece.
* RantInducingSlight: reacts poorly to Zuikaku saying that their efforts are useless during the Battle of the English Channel.
* ShrinkingViolet: subverted; her shyness isn't exaggerated, per se, as it is in fanworks, but her reserved nature doesn't allow for her to take the spotlight many times in the story.
* ThirdPersonPerson: the truest example in the whole story. From the chapter that she was introduced to the fleet, the author has depicted Haruna speaking unfailingly in her third-person habit and has never broken it since.

!Fusou-Class

!!Fusou

* AllohistoricalAllusion: while not fleshed out as much as the one among Akagi, Kaga, Takao, and Amagi, Fusou shares one with Ise and Hyuuga because the Ise-Class were first conceived as members of the Fusou-Class but then were revised heavily due to all the numerous design flaws found in the Fusou-Class. This relationship among the three is hinted at several times throughout the story, with a clear example being in chapter 283, when, while the fleet is posing for one last funny picture for Aoba, Ise and Hyuuga pull Fusou up so that Fusou ends up sitting on their shoulders.
* BornUnlucky: averted thoroughly in this story - in fact, [[DefiedTrope she's actually one of the luckier ones.]] Mr. Araki, in searching for Furutaka after the nuclear war, also found Fusou and Kitakami together with her in the same shipment and thus reactivated them all, taking them to live with him in hiding in a CCPL post in Boise, Idaho. Considering the reactivation stories that some ''other'' ship girls have had, Fusou's isn't bad at all, if you count out the fact that she's been living without her sister Yamashiro for thirteen years without knowing what's ended up happening to her.
* CharacterDevelopment: a minor one in her backstory, but Fusou admits to struggling with her new life in America, primarily because she couldn't get over her sharp concern for Yamashiro, such as her well-being and her whereabouts. Since then, however, she's accepted the fact that whatever has happened to Yamashiro are things she can't do anything about, and that the two of them will meet again when the time comes. And when Damon and his fleet meet them at New Chicago for the first time, she willingly goes along with Mr. Araki's orders for her, Furutaka, and Kitakami to join Damon's fleet because this means she now has a realistic way to search for her missing sister.
* {{Charisma}}: surprisingly, she's got a 9.
* CommonalityConnection: averted; her gentle and kind disposition allows her to be approachable by anyone, but it's not like she takes an odd liking to hanging out with those who may also be historically unlucky.
* TheEeyore: averted thoroughly again. Fusou is by no means depressed over the fact that she hasn't seen her sister Yamashiro for thirteen years, though she does admit the first few years were the toughest to get over. Instead, she's chosen to take solace in the fact that she was found and taken good care of by a former F.L.E.E.T. project developer who gave up his own life back in Japan just to find them before they fell into the wrong hands. And when Damon and his fleet come around, she willingly joins them, as opposed to Furutaka, who initially doesn't share her enthusiasm.
* {{Flanderization}}: averted through and through. True to the story's tendency of doing away with most such Flanderizations of characters in the game, Fusou, too, is portrayed as a motherly young woman who carries out her duties faithfully and fights willingly without complaint.
* GreenEyedMonster: averted, Fusou has shown nothing to suggest that she's jealous of anyone for any reason, despite her historic circumstances.
* MightyGlacier: subverted; while she's got a poor 2 in speed and a respectable 2000 hit points, her defense is only 6, and her armor points only tally in at 1000, which isn't that great compared to the rest of the battleships in the story.
* NiceGirl: kind, courteous, and has a Comradeship rating of 80% to support this.
* TheRival: also averted from the game, and it's justified in-story due to Fusou's perception of the Ise-Class battleships as fellow ship sisters due to their historic class relationship.
* VeteranUnit: along with Furutaka and Kitakami, given their backstories as reactivated ship girls living for thirteen years with a former Japanese F.L.E.E.T. project developer before the start of the story, and with the same bonuses that the other two ship girls receive, too.

!Ise-Class

* AllohistoricalAllusion: while not fleshed out as much as the one among Akagi, Kaga, Takao, and Amagi, Ise and Hyuuga share one with Fusou because the Ise-Class were first conceived as members of the Fusou-Class but then were revised heavily due to all the numerous design flaws found in the Fusou-Class.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: it's even listed as a passive ability for both Ise and Hyuuga to wield katanas more effectively, gain bonus experience for kills she gets with katanas, and teach other people how to use katanas. The passive ability even specifies this works with any Japanese-style sword, not just katanas.
* LightningBruiser: since both Ise and Hyuuga share almost all the same stats (only their Charisma stats differ), they both have an 8 in defense, an okay 6 in speed, and 2300 armor and health each. Not quite on the same level as Kongou or even Haruna are, but they're more this than a MightyGlacier.
* OrnamentalWeapon: averted; due to the way gearboxes work in the story, Ise and Hyuuga are definitely able to wield their katanas - the only problem is that they didn't come with their own.

!!Ise

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: averted from the 4koma, she behaves like a normal girl in the story.
* {{Determinator}}: an 8 in endurance and 75% in Critical Damage Resist.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: averted from the 4koma, for the reason above.
* OrnamentalWeapon: averted; Damon does buy a katana for Ise from a local Japanese swordsmith in New Chicago, but it breaks in combat during Operation Dualsight, as it's just an ordinary katana, not made of Smartsteel like the Orion-Class's cavalry sabres are.
* TheSlacker: averted from the 4koma, she definitely doesn't slack when it comes to training and sorties. At least, no one's said anything against her about it.

!!Hyuuga

* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: averted from the 4koma, she isn't seen reining Ise in all the time because she doesn't need to.
* ComicallySerious: averted, she keeps the serious part and drops the comic.
* {{Determinator}}: an 8 in endurance and 70% in Will.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: averted from the 4koma, for the reason above.

!Independent/Single-Member Classes

!!Amagi

* AllohistoricalAllusion: the story makes a point to portray Takao, Amagi, Kaga, and Akagi all together, because in RealLife, when they were being laid down and constructed, Amagi was meant to be a battleship along with the aforementioned and would have been true ship sisters with them all, had it not been for the Kanto Earthquake and the Washington Treaty, so these four, because of their historical what-if relationships, treat each other on the level of ship sisters. She is especially close with Akagi.
* AlternateUniverse: perhaps the meta reason why she was introduced into the story, before the canon Amagi came along. It's also the name of her passive ability, with which she gives Takao, Akagi, Atago (not yet found in the story), Kaga, and Tosa (also not yet found in the story) combat bonuses if they deploy together.
* AntiquatedLinguistics: ''the'' user of this in the fleet. She uses this when speaking both English and Japanese, but she's still readily understood.
* {{BFG}}: her Yamato Cannon. And in the fleet resupply in chapter 285, Amagi is assigned an FN M240-LW light machine gun as her primary weapon.
* CompositeCharacter: the Amagi in this story was introduced [[HilariousInHindsight well before the canon Amagi]] was implemented into the game; as a result, the author seems to treat her design as a "what-if" scenario and even calls her a "Resurrected Battlecruiser", a title no other ship girl receives in their introduction narrations. And according to her physical description, she is supposed to look suspiciously similar to Akagi, most likely due to her AllohistoricalAllusion nature (and perhaps even similarity in names, but that is probably a stretch).
* {{Determinator}}: has a 15 in endurance and a 100% Will rating.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: she's often depicted cooking whenever cooking is a possible activity for the fleet, along with other battleships.
* MysteriousPast: she doesn't know how or why she was created, so the question of who also comes as no surprise. Given her AllohistoricalAllusion nature, this is somewhat understandable, but the questions that her presence brings cannot be ignored.
* MythologyGag: when the canon Amagi was finally implemented, the author had the fleet have a fashion show in Damon's mansion in New Chicago, in which Amagi was participating and wore a kimono that matches the one that the canon Amagi wears in her base form.
* NecessaryDrawback: has the highest amount of hit points in the entire story according to the stat sheet at a whopping 4000, but in exchange, Amagi has no armor points to speak of, meaning that all the damage that she takes will deal full damage every time, because she has no armor to reduce incoming damage.
* {{Shoutout}}: what does Amagi say when asked what will happen if two Yamato Cannon shots collide? [[VideoGame/{{Starcraft}} Terrible, terrible damage!]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: averted, surprisingly. She does speak in a very archaic manner, as characterized by her distinct speech.
* UnorthodoxReload: during the Germany campaign, in the assault on the docks, Amagi accidentally drops a magazine of ammo for her DMR, so Haruna sees this and tosses one of her own over because they use the same rifles. Instead of catching the mag, Amagi gets creative and shoves her rifle receiver towards the flying magazine in such a way that the magazine clicks itself into the receiver in midair.
* YamatoNadeshiko: maintains this status in the story, even with the differences from the canon Amagi.

[[folder:Light and Standard Carriers]]

!Hiyou-Class

!!Hiyou

* {{Foil}}: to Jun'you, as in the game. The relationship between Hiyou and Jun'you is the only relationship that this story seems to like blowing out of proportion.
* HiddenDepths: it's implied that she does want to return to a career serving aboard a luxury liner just like her canon self, but this is HarsherInHindsight territory.
* {{Ojou}}: possesses the Patrician ability like Kumano.
* OutDamnedSpot: in her Fleet Log in chapter 134, she feels that her military career will have tarnished her desired civilian career aboard a luxury liner to the point where that civilian career path just won't be viable anymore.
* PowerGlows: Hiyou, Jun'you, and Ryuujou retain their canon ability to control shikigami as their primary means of deploying their planes, with the power aura that their hands emit when doing so.
* PunchParry: she, Jun'you, and Ryuujou can perform a "Special Parry" according to their entries in the stat sheet with their shikigami aura that allows them to parry more effectively than other ship girls. Of course, this extends to ParryingBullets as well.
* TheSmartGuy: with a 9 in intelligence and when compared to her sister Jun'you.
* SuplexFinisher: in chapter 283, when Jun'you flips off Aoba's camera while the fleet is taking a funny group photo, Hiyou sees this and immediately suplexes her so hard that [[UpToEleven she plants her sister into the ground.]]
* {{Shoutout}}: her suplex onto Jun'you harkens to Zangief's Critical Art in VideoGame/StreetFighterV, in which she buries Jun'you's head into the mansion lawn with how strong her suplex is.
* StandardStatusEffects: she, Jun'you, and Ryuujou can inflict agility and reflex penalties onto enemies they hit with their fists while they have their shikigami aura active.
* VeteranUnit: has buffs to her Charisma and Negotiation, along with reduced insanity and fatigue gain rates due to her experience working in Nashville.

!!Jun'you

* TheAlcoholic: see HiddenDepths below.
* BornLucky: averted in this story: she's found working as a bartender in Charlotte, one of the Coalition factions that ends up sending ship girls to fight against the Combined Fleet. All things considered, though, [[HarsherInHindsight this is still a lot better than what her friends went through.]]
* FriendlySniper: loud and full of good cheer, and also toting a long-range DMR.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: very much so maintained in the story - she's found working as a bartender (though that wasn't really ''her'' choice) when Damon's fleet finds her in Charlotte, and it's even listed as a passive ability that grants very specific bonuses for herself and her allies in combat. When they're on vacation in New Chicago, she's implied to be drinking a lot during that time, though she doesn't seem to make a mess of herself ''all'' the time. But this isn't the full story...
* HiddenDepths: in her Fleet Log, Jun'you admits to alcoholism. She's saying this as a ship girl, whose bodies are inherently built to be resistant to many things that human bodies are susceptible to. Now how much alcohol would ''that'' take?
* PowerGlows: Hiyou, Jun'you, and Ryuujou retain their canon ability to control shikigami as their primary means of deploying their planes, with the power aura that their hands emit when doing so.
* PunchParry: she, Hiyou, and Ryuujou can perform a "Special Parry" according to their entries in the stat sheet with their shikigami aura that allows them to parry more effectively than other ship girls. Of course, this extends to ParryingBullets as well.
* StandardStatusEffects: she, Hiyou, and Ryuujou can inflict agility and reflex penalties onto enemies they hit with their fists while they have their shikigami aura active.
* TakeThat: if you look at Jun'you's Bartender passive ability, if you read the requirements for its last listed buff, it goes as follows:
--> ...requires good booze, not shit American pisswater. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Please drink responsibly.]]
* VerbalTic: subverted; she does say her trademark "Hyahaa~" a few times, but not enough to make it memetic.

!Chitose-Class

* CompositeCharacter: oddly enough, the story only calls Chitose and Chiyoda seaplane tenders by name and considers them light carriers for its "gameplay" purposes. They're even armed with the same Izanami Crossbows that regular carriers use.

!!Chitose

* BoisterousBruiser: averted, she has ''never'' bragged about anything, much less about her own planes.
* CoolBigSis: maintained in this story, she fights with Chiyoda in all fleet operations that they've participated in so far, though she doesn't have a passive ability like other lead ship girls do to cement it.
* {{Determinator}}: one of the most prominent examples in the fleet, given her backstory in the story. Accordingly, she has a huge 13 in endurance, and her Will rating is the highest of any ship girl in the fleet at a staggering 150%.
* DopeSlap: gives one to her sister Chiyoda when the latter gets slightly more enthusiastic about an Admiral change than she ought to be.
* FriendlySniper: kind, patient, and wields an H&K MSG-90. She's even got a passive ability called Sniper Specialist that gives her bonuses for using a sniper rifle and getting kills with it. [[FridgeLogic It's almost as if patience is a good thing for good snipers to have...]]
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: averted, there's no mention of Chitose's tendency to drink. Then again, there's no reason why she couldn't just because the story doesn't explicitly mention it.
* ObliviousToLove: averted; she's very much aware of her sister's affection in the story. After Orlando, she better be.
* {{Shoutout}}: a very subtle one, but in her entry in the stat sheet, her passive ability "Saint" has a description that goes:
--> [[VideoGame/DarkestDungeon Her will has been tested, and she has succeeded.]]
* SiblingYinYang: guess what Chiyoda's like.
* TurnTheOtherCheek: she was selected as Orlando's "victim" ship girl, [[spoiler:meaning she suffered all four of her limbs being broken so that the controller of the city could use her as a hostage.]] Not only does she emerge from her ordeal so mentally intact that she could easily pretend nothing happened to her at all, but she doesn't even harbor any ill intent towards the Orlandians. This is cemented as a passive ability called Saint that is unique to her and gives very powerful psychological bonuses to her and allows one ally to convert his or her entire insanity gauge into a temporary attribute bonus for Bullet Accuracy and Shell Accuracy.

!!Chiyoda

* ATeamFiring: it's not that her aim is bad, but her sniper motto is to suppress the enemy with generous volumes of sniper fire. Her passive debuff is even called [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy Stormtrooper]]. [[FridgeLogic Maybe it's because of her lack of patience that makes her want to shoot so much...]]
* BerserkButton: like some other ship girls, she's got a problem with Americans, though given what happened to her sister and her comrades at the hands of the Coalition, this can be excused to a degree. This comes to be a minor problem when she interacts with Damon, as she doesn't approve of him due to his status as an American.
* BigSisterWorship: while it's not as pronounced as it is in canon, Chiyoda is nonetheless still quite fond of her sister. After Orlando, it's hard to fault her for it, but she still gets penalized for this with her passive debuff Obsessive.
* DopeSlap: gets one from her sister Chitose after she gets a little bit more excited than she should get after considering a possible switch from an American Admiral to a Japanese one.
* FragileFlower: surprisingly subverted; she certainly takes her time in Orlando quite badly, but she gets over it quickly once Chitose gets repaired at the fleet base at MAPS.
* GreenEyedMonster: averted...for now, perhaps only because of the fact that Chitose isn't romantically interested in Damon.
* SiblingYinYang: she makes her sister really look like a saint. Plus, their sniper doctrines are polar opposites: Chitose is careful and makes each of her shots count, while Chiyoda just spams her sniper rifle to suppress enemies.

!!Chiyoda

Japanese seaplane tender as depicted in Victory Belles.

* CultureEqualsCostume: averted among the Lukenstor-built Japanese ship girls, she's the only one who's got a recognizably modern outfit.
* FlowerInHerHair: has five or so yellow flowers on her hair.
* GolfClubbing: for some reason, instead of a katana like the rest, she's got...a golf club.
* InSeriesNickname: Nisei Chiyoda.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: wavy sky blue hair.

!Shouhou-Class

!!Shouhou

* ColdSniper: she's not seen interacting much with anyone, and the most she's ever seen talking is with Taihou while they're marching through the rain towards Nashville. That doesn't necessarily mean she herself is cold and aloof, however.
* HiddenDepths: as mentioned in her conversation with Taihou, her one wish is to bring all of the "Phoenix" carriers together - in other words, all carriers whose names have the "hou" syllable in their names (meaning or alluding to the phoenix in Japanese).
* LampshadeHanging: like a few other ship girls who've given their own existences some thought, Shouhou too wonders why girls like them were constructed when current technology could produce much more sophisticated weapons like her own support rifle.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: a twist of this trope, but Shouhou uses a MK-12 MOD 0 SPR rifle as her assigned firearm, a squad support rifle that fires standard NATO STANAG rounds, as opposed to the rest of the carriers in the fleet, who all fire higher caliber rounds, at least DMR NATO or above.
* {{Reincarnation}}: discusses the concept of karmic reincarnation with Taihou in chapter 91.
* StartXToStopX: implies this in her conversation with Taihou in chapter 91, that she's willing to fight for a more peaceful world.

!Shoukaku-class

!!Shoukaku

* ArmorPiercingSlap: gets one from Damon in chapter 72.
* AutomaticCrossbows: uses one, though technically it's a pump-action crossbow, as the Izanami crossbows that the carriers use to launch their planes must be pumped to load another bolt from the underfed magazines. It's also based on the explosive-tipped pump-action crossbow seen in VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2.
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: subverted; [[spoiler:Partially Abyssalized Shoukaku, at the end of Operation Dualsight, gets isolated from the rest of the fleet by Abyssals and is confronted by the Wo-Class, who gives her an ultimatum. Upon refusing it, Shoukaku uses a ChargedAttack from her sniper rifle in a TakingYouWithMe attempt to take her would-be captors down with her, but it fails.]]
* {{BFG}}: like Kaga, Shoukaku also wields a fifty-caliber, anti-materiel sniper rifle of her own, the [[http://www.mcmillanfirearms.com/mcmillan-rifles/tactical-rifles/ McMillan TAC-50.]]
* BornUnlucky: unfortunately, she doesn't seem to be able to escape her host of misfortunes even from the official 4koma, as many bad things happen to her over the course of the story [[spoiler:such as getting shot in her left eye and suffering the loss of it during Operation Night Tide, getting captured during Operation Norfolk by the Abyssals and getting imprisoned in Newfoundland with Kaga, losing herself and having to get shot to unconsciousness during Operation Atlanta, getting captured by the Abyssals again during Operation Dualsight, and then finally becoming fully Abyssalized into Water Demon.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:what happens to Shoukaku once she is forced to complete her Abyssalization process into Aircraft Carrier Water Demon.]]
* CallingYourAttacks: does this with her palm strike attacks constantly.
* ChargedAttack: [[spoiler:after her Abyssalization, Shoukaku can feed her sniper rifle Abyssal energy, and her rifle will charge up the energy to fire one of these to dislodge enemy defensive structures and formations and deal more damage to Abyssal targets.]]
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler:in chapter 303, to kill the second Water Demon, Shoukaku uses a powerful Abyssal palm strike that strikes Water Demon on the back of head, manually shutting off her ship mode and paralyzing her. This means that, without her ship mode active, Water Demon is sent on a one-way trip to Davey Jones' locker.]]
* DontMakeMeDestroyYou:
** Is told this in chapter 99 [[spoiler:from Abyssal reinforcements during Operation Dualsight.]]
** [[spoiler:gives one of her own to the fleet in chapter 162 once she becomes Water Demon.]]
* DoubleTap: [[spoiler:almost suffers this in chapter 95 when Alastor Scott shoots her three times with a .44 Magnum; the first three shots are enough to kill her, but Scott fires a fourth shot aimed for her head - that's blocked by Damon just in time.]]
* EmpathicWeapon: [[spoiler:both she and Kaga obtain one when they become Abyssalized, because their sniper rifles also happened to become Abyssalized along with them. Like Kaga's sniper, Shoukaku's described to develop creepy, jerking eyes all over its body and emits light red Abyssal haze. It will also not allow anyone to wield it other than Shoukaku and will retaliate if it senses someone other than Shoukaku trying to pick it up; though, there may be an exception to this with Damon, who, in chapter 88, is indeed able to pick up Shoukaku's TAC-50 without consequence.]]
* EnemyWithout: [[spoiler:a twist on this trope: Shoukaku meets a second Water Demon who confronts her during Operation 300.]]
* EnergyBow: [[spoiler:gains one after her Abyssalization, which allows her to form a bow made of Abyssal energy with which to fire [[TrickArrow Trick Arrows]], both explosive energy arrows and regular energy arrows that disperse into Abyssal planes made of Abyssal energy.]]
* EyeScream: In chapter 63, [[spoiler:gets shot by a .338 Lapua Magnum in the left eye during the naval air station infiltration during Operation Night Tide.]]
* FriendlySniper: as opposed to Kaga's ColdSniper. Just like her ingame persona, she is polite and kind to everyone and is, by nature of her role in the fleet as a carrier, a sniper.
* FromBadToWorse: suffers this during Operation Norfolk, indicative of her BornUnlucky trope. [[spoiler:Not only does she lose her left eye from a sniper rifle bullet during the nighttime phase, but she ends up getting captured by the Abyssals during the daytime phase along with Kaga.]]
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Is subjected to this by Damon after receiving her ArmorPiercingSlap in chapter 72. Damon does it again in chapter 265.
* HeroicSacrifice: towards the end of Operation Dualsight, [[spoiler:when Kaga, Shoukaku, and Zuikaku are trying to regroup with the fleet, Shoukaku intentionally body-blocks a salvo of torpedoes fired after them to allow the other two to reach the rest of the surviving fleet safely while she falls into the hands of the chasing Abyssals.]]
* InASingleBound: while all ship girls have excellent jumping strength due to both their enhanced power as ship girls and their boost meters that they can use to propel them further, [[spoiler:Kaga, Shoukaku, and Murasame demonstrate that Abyssal energy takes this UpToEleven by allowing them to jump from sea level all the way up to the edge of a container freighter during Operation Orlando.]]
* LeaveHimToMe: tells the rest of her squadron in chapter 303 to leave [[spoiler:the second Water Demon]] to herself, because at that point, her duel has become [[ItsPersonal personal.]]
* MamaBear: [[spoiler:kills the second Water Demon over insulting her daughter.]]
* MortonsFork: faces one in chapter 95: [[spoiler:by the time she was surrounded by Abyssals, Shoukaku had no chance of escape because the rest of the fleet was too far away and had taken too many casualties to bail her out. She has two choices: surrender voluntarily and at least have a chance that her captors will leave her memories intact with her imminent conversion into an Abyssal, or try to go out in a blaze of glory and suffer the same result - except without her memories as Shoukaku. She chooses the latter, and now she's known as Water Demon.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: a symptom of her [[spoiler:Abyssalization, though interestingly, unlike Kaga, only her left eye glows due to the EyeScream incident.]]
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: goes on one [[spoiler:against the second Water Demon in chapter 303, when the latter insults Shoukaku's mysterious daughter Chizuru.]]
* {{Shoutout}}: uses a few of [[VideoGame/StreetFighterV the same palm strike techniques that Zuikaku uses.]]
* StockKisses: [[spoiler:gets one from Damon in chapter 73.]]
* SuperMode: it appears that [[spoiler:she can tap into her Abyssal power to gain her full Abyssal strength that she had when she was Water Demon, as demonstrated in chapter 303.]]
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:attempts to do this to Zuikaku as Water Demon during Operation Stethem.]]
* ThatManIsDead:
** In chapter 162, [[spoiler:once converted into Water Demon, she doesn't deny the possibility that she had a previous identity known as Shoukaku, but she declares that to be in the past and is now no longer that person.]]
** More tragically in chapter 265, [[spoiler:after being turned back from Aircraft Carrier Water Demon, she doesn't believe she's the real Shoukaku any more.]]
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: technically, You Are More Beautiful Than You Think You Are. Damon tells her this in chapter 73 when Shoukaku becomes more and more disheartened ever since her [[spoiler:Abyssalization]].

!!Zuikaku

* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:Zuikaku has died twice thus far in the story: first during Operation Atlanta, when the falling skyscraper drops right on top of her and almost decapitates her with falling debris, and second at the hands of her own Abyssalized sister, who shoots her with her Abyssal sniper rifle and forces her to bleed out.]]
* BerserkButton: just lik in canon, Zuikaku really doesn't like being called a turkey, and quite a few ship girls warn Damon not to make this mistake.
* {{BFG}}: she receives Damon's DSR-50 sniper rifle when she joins the fleet as her primary firearm - [[WeaponOfChoice which she still uses.]]
* BigSisterWorship: like Chiyoda, Zuikaku is penalized for this with the Obsessive passive debuff. This is also what leads to her ConflictingLoyalty to the fleet and to her sister.
* BoisterousBruiser: averted from the game. See CursedWithAwesome below.
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler:during the Germany campaign, Zuikaku is sent with the submarines and a small team of ship girls to investigate an odd factory along northern Germany, in the town of Greifswald, where she confronts Shoukaku, who's been fully Abyssalized into Water Demon. After a brief exchange of words, Shoukaku fatally wounds Zuikaku with a shot from her Abyssalized TAC-50 sniper rifle, and Zuikaku consequently bleeds to death on their way back to Berlin.]]
* CallingYourAttacks: does this with her palm strike techniques.
* ConflictingLoyalty: always has a tough time deciding between taking care of her sister Shoukaku or fighting for the fleet's needs and interests.
* CursedWithAwesome: Zuikaku considers her luck to be this because in her past life as a warship and her current, she always seems to dodge strokes of bad luck (conveniently ignoring the fact that she's died twice already in the story so far) and wishes she could at least take some of the misfortune her sister always seem to be struck with off her.
* DeflectorShields: gains one as the result of her Kai remodel.
* FriendlySniper: maybe to the rest of her fleet, but not as much towards her own Admiral.
* JustAKid: averted from the game. Kaga does not treat either her or her sister Shoukaku like she does in fanworks or canon and treats them at the very least as her fellow carrier fleetmates, even as her equals if she's feeling generous.
* LiteralistSnarking: ends up on the receiving end of this when she tells Damon to bite her. Which is exactly what Damon tries to do.
* RantInducingSlight: accidentally triggers one in Haruna of all people when Zuikaku laments the futility of their efforts during the Battle of the English Channel.
* {{Shoutout}}: when she [[spoiler:fights the Re-Class near Cape Canaveral]], she uses palm strikes as her martial arts style for close-quarters combat, and one of her attacks is the [[VideoGame/StreetFighterV Myou'ou-Ken.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: averted, she's yet to address herself as "Zuikaku" in the story.
* ThoseTwoGirls: with Shoukaku. They're hardly ever portrayed apart from each other if they're both in the fleet at the same time.
* {{Tsundere}}: averted from the anime; Zuikaku actually gets along pretty well with Kaga, and the normal antagonism between them that's present in the vast majority of fanworks is noticeably absent. However, she ''may'' be this towards Damon, her Admiral, but it's still rather unclear.

!Independent/single-member classes

!!Ryuujou

* ACupAngst: averted; she doesn't spend all day lamenting the flatness of her chest.
* FriendlySniper: semi-automatic sniper rifles and a lively Kansai accent? Sure is.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: in the story, this is translated into a Southern accent whenever Ryuujou speaks English. Which, given how her situation turned out before she joined Damon's fleet, [[GoneHorriblyRight worked out pretty damn well in her favor.]]
* PetitePride: maintained in the story, though she isn't over the top with it. Instead of getting triggered by big boobs, she takes the high road and gives herself self-respect for her own chest size.
* PlayingWithFire: seen doing this with Jeannie shortly after she gains her YRC power with Damon, being the first carrier to do so, though it's not yet mentioned just what her power(s) is/are exactly.
* PowerGlows: Hiyou, Jun'you, and Ryuujou retain their canon ability to control shikigami as their primary means of deploying their planes, with the power aura that their hands emit when doing so.
* PunchParry: she, Jun'you, and Hiyou can perform a "Special Parry" according to their entries in the stat sheet with their shikigami aura that allows them to parry more effectively than other ship girls. Of course, this extends to ParryingBullets as well.
* StandardStatusEffects: she, Hiyou, and Jun'you can inflict agility and reflex penalties onto enemies they hit with their fists while they have their shikigami aura active.
* VeteranUnit: is part of the exclusive club of ship girls who have the passive ability "Reality Veteran", and Ryuujou qualifies to be part of it due to her work as a Nashville armory supervisor during her time with the Harpers as a Coalition ship girl.

!!Kaga

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: while most ship girls do care about their memories as warships, Kaga is perhaps the most notorious for this to a fault. In addition, while ingame, in the anime, and in fanworks Kaga doesn't always get along with the Fifth Carrier Division girls Shoukaku and Zuikaku, in the story she is not at all as antagonistic towards them - in fact, she gets along pretty well with them, and vice versa.
* ArmorPiercingSlap: gets one from Damon in chapter 78 as their conversation degrades.
* AutomaticCrossbows: uses one, though technically it's a pump-action crossbow, as the Izanami crossbows that the carriers use to launch their planes must be pumped to load another bolt from the underfed magazines. It's also based on the explosive-tipped pump-action crossbow seen in VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2.
* BerserkButton: if she catches anyone talking bad about the IJN's performance in the Pacific theatre of the second World War, she's going to give them more than just a telling, even if such discussion isn't meant to put down anyone or anything in particular and is based on historical fact. She'll also explode on people if they dare call Akagi her "step-sister", as Zuikaku has had to find out the hard way.
* {{BFG}}: her fifty-caliber, anti-materiel [[http://www.carolinasfirstdefense.com/Desert-Tach-HTI--Hard-Target-Interdiction-Rifle_p_143.html Desert Tactical HTI]] sniper rifle.
* ChargedAttack: [[spoiler:after her Abyssalization, Kaga can feed her sniper rifle Abyssal energy, and her rifle will charge up the energy to fire one of these to dislodge enemy defensive structures and formations and deal more damage to Abyssal targets.]]
* ColdSniper: a combination of Kaga's stoic demeanor and the roles of carriers in this story as being the resident snipers of the fleet.
* TheComicallySerious: just like in the game and in fanworks, Kaga has a huge appetite, but she won't break character because of it. Therefore, hilarity ensues when the narration has to detail her interactions with Damon whenever it's mealtime.
* EmpathicWeapon: [[spoiler:both she and Shoukaku obtain one when they become Abyssalized, because their sniper rifles also happened to become Abyssalized along with them. Like Shoukaku's sniper, Kaga's described to develop creepy, jerking eyes all over its body and emits light red Abyssal haze. It will also not allow anyone to wield it other than Kaga and will retaliate if it senses someone other than Kaga trying to pick it up; though, there may be an exception to this with Damon. To see why, see the EmpathicWeapon trope under Shoukaku's entry.]]
* EnergyBow: [[spoiler:gains one after her Abyssalization, which allows her to form a bow made of Abyssal energy with which to fire [[TrickArrow Trick Arrows]], both explosive energy arrows and regular energy arrows that disperse into Abyssal planes made of Abyssal energy.]]
* InASingleBound: while all ship girls have excellent jumping strength due to both their enhanced power as ship girls and their boost meters that they can use to propel them further, [[spoiler:Kaga, Shoukaku, and Murasame demonstrate that Abyssal energy takes this UpToEleven by allowing them to jump from sea level all the way up to the edge of a container freighter during Operation Orlando.]]
* IWillFindYou: Prior to finding Akagi, her fellow First Carrier Division carrier, this was one of the main things on her mind.
* PostVictoryCollapse: has one after defeating the Re-Class in chapter 195.
* PressurePoint: [[spoiler:her martial arts style involves a two-finger hand stance that goes after pressure points in the target's body. Or, at least, that's what it's reminiscent of.]]
* RantInducingSlight: delivers one to Shoukaku and Haruna in chapter 29 because she's triggered by how willing the two of them are to put their pasts behind them.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: a symptom of her [[spoiler:Abyssalization. As she gets more and more used to her Abyssal power over the course of the story, Kaga can suppress her Abyssal power to the point where her eyes don't give off red hazes, though they will resurface if she draws on her abyssal power.]]
* {{Shoutout}}: [[spoiler:she uses Gen's Shitenketsu Ultra combo from VideoGame/StreetFighterIV to execute the Aircraft Carrier Demon. She also hits her sixty-four times during this attack, a possible reference to [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Neji's Tri-Grams Sixty-Four Palms technique.]]]]
* SuperMode: her [[spoiler:partial Abyssalization]] is implied to be this according to Kaga's entry in the stat sheet, but it's also implied to be a DeadlyUpgrade if she draws upon her [[spoiler:Abyssal energy]] for too long.
* TouchOfDeath: [[spoiler:does this to an enemy Ne-Class and blows her heart out the back.]]

!!Akagi

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: she takes her failure at Midway [[spoiler:and her role in Damon's first death]] pretty hard.
* AllohistoricalAllusion: the story makes a point to portray Takao, Amagi, Kaga, and Akagi all together, because in RealLife, when they were being laid down and constructed, Akagi was meant to be a battleship along with the aforementioned and would have been true ship sisters with them all, had it not been for the Kanto Earthquake and the Washington Treaty, so these four, because of their historical what-if relationships, treat each other on the level of ship sisters. Akagi is particularly close with Amagi, because they specifically were intended to be ship sisters.
* BigEater: its {{Flanderization}} is averted; the story doesn't point out any peculiar eating habits that sets her apart from the rest of the capital ship girls, who all eat more than the average human and more than the other ship girls in the fleet, for that matter.
* FriendlySniper: probably more so this than Kaga is.
* LukeIAmYourFather: inverted - not only was she not aware of Graf Zeppelin's existence, but Graf is the one who tells her that she is her daughter. Naturally, this triggers Kaga more than just a bit.
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler:two of them, but one in each life: Midway as a carrier, and Damon's death as a ship girl. This is why she has the Regicide passive debuff that nukes her Charisma stat and dampens her EXP gain rates whenever she fights with Damon, even though he says that he doesn't think any less of Akagi because of what she's done.]]
* SingleIssuePsychology: subverted from the 4koma - she doesn't turn into a quivering wreck, per se, but she doesn't think fondly of it at all. It still remains one of her main regrets from her past life.
* ThoseTwoGirls: with either Kaga or Amagi, once she joins the fleet. More often than time, it's all three of them together, but then [[DefiedTrope that wouldn't fit this trope.]] With Kaga, she gets minor combat bonuses when deployed together.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: subverted, along with her flanderized BigEater tendencies. Presumably she still likes bauxite, but that can't be avoided due to her nature as a carrier.

!!Hiryuu

Japanese carrier as depicted in Victory Belles.

* CultureEqualsCostume: wears a traditional samurai getup.
* FlowerInHerHair: has a small bunch of pink flowers directly on top of her head.
* GirlishPigtails: like Nisei Fubuki, she also sports a pair, minus the OdangoHair that Nisei Fubuki has to facilitate them.
* HairDecorations: has two short wooden antennae, perhaps to resemble dragon ears (given her name) and has two sets of long white ribbons that fasten her twintails in place.
* InSeriesNickname: Nisei Hiryuu.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: has one with a pink handle and a red sheath to match her red samurai armor.
* TheMusketeer: surprisingly, she's the straightest example in the story, because unlike the other musketeers, she actually has a real musket as part of her equipment along with her katana. Granted, it's a rifled musket, but still.

!!Taihou

* AutomaticCrossbows: a modified version of her canon crossbow, her Kage no Tsume handheld crossbow lets her wield it with just one hand, with a modified three-bolt magazine that feeds underneath instead of being a top-loader like her canon one (because there's a variable scope fitted on the rail). It can even be outfitted with a bayonet, seeing its {{Shoutout}}.
* BornUnlucky: subverted...somewhat. She suffers the fate of being captured and taken command of by the Coalition factions, which is already a bad start according to the story's standards, but there are definitely worse things that could have happened to her, given her circumstances. Her strong mental fortitude and steadfastness help too.
* CentipedesDilemma: warns Shouhou not to think too hard about why they were brought back as ship girls and simply settle for the hope that they were constructed with a purpose.
--> Taihou: "Think too hard, and you'll lose."
* HiddenDepths: similar to Shouhou's wish of bringing all the phoenix carriers together, she wants to bring ''all'' Japanese carriers together into one fleet.
* FriendlySniper: courteous, polite, and determined, wielding the Intervention sniper rifle, perhaps a {{Shoutout}} to the Intervention featured in VideoGame/CallOfDutyModernWarfare2.
* JackOfAllStats: averted. In the story, she's got great defense, high intelligence, and higher than average speed and charisma. Really her only bad stats are her attack and her cost, but attack isn't so necessary on carriers based on their combat styles (they're still incredibly strong due to their base strengths), and the cost is a NecessaryDrawback for carriers. In addition, her armor is the highest for all carriers due to her nature as an armored carrier in RealLife, but lower than average health in exchange.
* MortonsFork: gives a hypothetical one to Shouhou, asking her which she would choose if she were offered either her carrier comrades and world peace.
* NervesOfSteel: her Steadfast passive ability helps keep her friends collected in combat with a 25% decreased fatigue gain rate and an additional +25% to shelling accuracy.
* TheReliableOne: being one of the ship girls in Charlotte, she took it upon herself to look after her fellow ship girls wherever she could and never got bogged down from their oppressed positions.
* {{Shoutout}}: her Kage no Tsume handheld crossbow is one to the NX Shadowclaw in VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3.
* SingleIssuePsychology: averted; she's yet to make a concerned remark regarding ignitable gas and self-inflicted explosions.
* WeaponOfChoice: since the day she joined the fleet, Taihou has received and used the [[http://www.cheytac.com/shop/firearms/m200-intervention/ Cheytac M-200 Intervention Carbine]] as her primary firearm. Even through the fleet equipment overhaul in chapter 285, she has stayed loyal to the rifle and kept it.

!!Wakamiya/Lethington

The personification of Japanese seaplane carrier ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_seaplane_carrier_Wakamiya Wakamiya]]''.

* AffectionateNickname: the British ship girls call her Leslie, a shortened version of her original English name, Lethington.
* AlternateUniverse: has the "Alternative" passive ability that grants all friendly carriers very good peripheral and plane bonuses.
* {{BFG}}: gets one of her own to fit in with the other carriers, an [[http://www.accuracyinternational.us/ax50-rifle-system/ AI AX-50.]]
* FragileSpeedster: subverted - not only is she fast, but her defense is actually quite high - a 12, even. But because of her carrier status, particularly that of being the oldest carrier in the story, she only has 500 armor points and 1300 health points, which is very easily light cruiser-tier.
* HistoricalInJoke: before they deploy to the Mediterranean, Wakamiya exchanges a few words with Warspite. Despite having never met each other in RealLife, as ship girls with complete historical knowledge of themselves and others, they both profess to admire one another for their historical legacies.
* MagicStaff: a twist on the trope: instead of a true ''magic'' staff, Wakamiya uses one that's loaded with miniature planes inside and can launch them. And a few details of her combat shows her wielding her staff like a melee weapon too.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: Wakamiya is the only carrier whose plane launching technique is completely unique: instead of using a crossbow as a launching platform or the onmyodo techniques used by Hiyou, Jun'you, and Ryuujou, she ejects a plane out of the bottom of her staff, sets it against the water, and launches it by swinging it like a golf club. The way she loads up intact planes is unique as well: since she has no flight deck like other carriers do, her planes return to her and miniaturize themselves to land on the water itself or fly into Wakamiya's hand, and she loads them back into her staff by hand.
* MysteriousPast: in a fleet whose carriers mostly hail from the Second World War, Wakamiya, the carrier who launched the world's first naval air raids, is a walking mystery.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She is the oldest ship in the Combined Fleet, even older than the World War I-era Kongous, Orions and Tenryuus, but she appears to be around the same age as everyone else.
* {{Shoutout}}: Wakamiya's design is loosely based on [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1682056?tags=kantai_collection+wakamiya_%28kantai_collection%29 ikeron's Wakamiya.]]
* TwoFirstNames: she interchangeably goes by two names, Wakamiya (for Japanese ship girls) and Lethington (or Leslie, for British ship girls).
* WeaponOfChoice: fittingly, she prefers English sniper rifles, particularly those manufactured by Arctic International. She uses the AW-F for much of the story, and when the fleet gets an equipment overhaul in chapter 285, her sniper rifle is upgraded to the AI AX-50.

[[folder:Submarines]]

* CombatMedic: while not in the conventional sense, because submarine girls are the only ship girls who can swim, they are thus the only ones who can retrieve the sunken bodies of downed ship girls who have been killed in action to bring them back for repair. It's not a pretty job by any means, but undoubtedly necessary.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: due to their Cloaking, all submarines have gear-shaped symbols in their eyes that physically indicate the status of their Cloaking. Prongs inward means that they are ready to Cloak, and prongs outward means that they're Cloaked...[[TheNondescript meaning you can't see them in the first place.]]
* GlassCannon: all submarines are paper-thin when it comes to armor point, health point, and maximum level cap ratings. However, due to their torpedo artillery (especially given that the vast majority of destroyers and cruisers have not come equipped default with torpedoes of their own), the submarines are essential to providing the fleet's ability to launch opening torpedo salvos.
* InvisibilityCloak: a default ability for all submarine girls introduced thus far. See {{Shoutout}} below.
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: the submarines' Cloaking extends to whatever weapons and equipment they're carrying and wielding, including their ship armaments (mainly just mini-torpedoes before they launch them), firearms, vests, magazines, etc.
* {{Shoutout}}: [[VideoGame/{{StarCraftI}} Personal Cloaking]] is possessed by all submarines through their swimsuits, and the story goes out of its way to describe each of the submarine girls' eyes to contain the telltale Cloaking gears to further reinforce this shoutout. U-511 even drops a few lines from the Ghost unit from both VideoGame/{{StarCraftI}} and VideoGame/StarcraftII.
** their theme is "The Mark", from VideoGame/Payday2.
* StealthExpert: all submarines, including the German subs, come with Cloak, made possible by their advanced swimsuits, and are generally armed with suppressed weapons and deployed on stealth missions (or at least play stealth roles in combat operations); the only real exception to this is U-511, whose multi-purpose C-10 Canister Rifle compels her to fight a little less stealthily.

!I-19

* BloodKnight: she loves to fight, more so than the other submarines.
* ClingyJealousGirl: subverted from the game. She loves to hang out with Damon, but she's in no way clingy.
* FriendlySniper: has the vision of one to back it up. In addition, whenever she spots enemies, their markers are unique in that they track them for three seconds, as opposed to standard spotting, which only marks the locations of enemies at the moment they were spotted. [[spoiler:And now with her new Binary Rifle, she fulfills this trope inside and out.]]
* OutOfFocus: sees that as the fleet grows, Damon was paying less and less attention to her.
* {{Shoutout}}: receives the [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/{{Halo}} Z-750 Binary Rifle]] through Damon's YRC.]]
** the Twitter-like handle she uses during the submarines' text conversation is the same one seen in [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/2236679?pool_id=8259 yua (checkmate)'s "Fleet Journal".]]
* StarterEquipment: she is the first submarine that Damon finds in the story.
* SuperSenses: Iku has augmented vision, a reference to her reputation as a sniper.
* VerbalTic: her "nano" comes through in this story as well, even in English.

!I-168

* BreakTheCutie: the sight of the mangled and deformed bodies of the sunken ship girls during the salvage operation after Operation Dualsight really rattled her.
* FriendlySniper: curiously, the story doesn't acknowledge Imuya's own historical reputation as a submarine sniper. Imuya does [[spoiler:receive [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare a railgun sniper rifle]] as her new power weapon from Damon's YRC, though.]]
* TheDreaded: inverted, funnily enough - even though she's supposed to be this to Yorktown, due to her historic sinking of the carrier at the end of Midway, Imuya goes out of her way to avoid Yorktown whenever she can, according to the carrier herself.
* MythologyGag: at the time she joined the fleet, Imuya did not have her smartphone, which she's quite well known for ingame, but she finally gets one (as do the rest of the submarines) when Damon buys them refurbished ones in New Chicago.
* {{Shoutout}}: receives the [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare MORS Rail Sniper]] through Damon's YRC.]]
** the Twitter-like handle she uses during the submarines' text conversation is the same one seen in [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/2236679?pool_id=8259 yua (checkmate)'s "Fleet Journal".]]

!I-401

* CompanionCube: averted, as she does not seem to have her Seiran aircraft, since she hasn't deployed any during any combat operation she's taken part in so far.
* JackOfAllStats: has 5's in the four main combat stats.
* {{Shoutout}}: receives a [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/{{Starcraft}} Dark Templar's Psionic Blade]] through Damon's YRC.]]
** [[spoiler:which can ''then'' turn its blade from green to [[Manga/ArpeggioOfBlueSteel steel blue]] with power from a navitasium cube. With the cube, she also gains a Klein Field.]]
* SituationalDamageAttack: her passive ability, Stealth Gambit, is this. If Shioi can flank the enemy and throw the first torpedo to initiate a naval battle, that torpedo deals triple damage and completely ignores enemy armor.
* WouldNotHitAGirl: she isn't comfortable with the idea of shooting another female in battle, even though she herself is a female combatant.

!I-58

* KansaiRegionalAccent: averted for the most part, since the story makes no effort to portray her accent, as Kuroshio's and Ryuujou's are. However, Goya always speaks quite informally, if that counts.
* {{Shoutout}}: gains [[spoiler:[[Anime/{{Charlotte}} Nao's personal invisibility ability]] through Damon's YRC.]]
** the Twitter-like handle she uses during the submarines' text conversation is the same one seen in [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/2236679?pool_id=8259 yua (checkmate)'s "Fleet Journal".]]
* VerbalTic: like Iku, she constantly spews her trademark "dechi", even in English.

!Maru-yu

* AmbiguousInnocence: Despite her very young appearance, Maru-yu is disturbingly comfortable with violence. Best demonstrated in chapter 151, where she watches full of DissonantSerenity as a bunch of mooks burn to death from a MolotovCocktail she had thrown at them, then does it again on a straggler.
* {{Homage}}: most likely one to [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/pools/8877?page=1 gaiko kujin's Maru-yu-san.]] [[spoiler:Reinforced by the cigar she gets from contracting with Damon.]]
* IWorkAlone: seems to be a fan of this, because she operates stealthily and eliminates enemy mercenaries while Cloaked and by herself in chapter 295.
* JokeCharacter: implied with her stats: they're all 1's. [[LethalJokeCharacter Apparently, she's not a joke at all.]]
* TheStoic: her passive ability, Maru-yu-san, lets her completely disregard the penalties ship girls normally suffer for having 100% insanity and prevents her from gaining any more, not that that's possible to begin with.
* StoryBreakerPower: subverted; while Maru-yu hasn't done anything story-significant, she ''does'' end up doing things that even the story acknowledges shouldn't be possible, like [[HairTriggerExplosive shooting C-4 to make it blow up]]. There are things about her stats too that are very disturbing, such as having 100% insanity ''by default''. And when you realize she's supposed to be a JokeCharacter with 1's in all stats...
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: [[spoiler: The power she gets from Damon lets her...summon a cigar.]]

!I-8

* BadassBookworm: averted, the few scenes in which she's depicted does not show her with her signature books that she carries around with her ingame. No reason why she couldn't read books in her free time outside of combat, though.
* GratuitousGerman: averted, she speaks fluent German and is introduced in the story as a German submarine serving with the other German ship girls in the SDP.
* {{Sadist}}: some of her dialogue lines hint at this, a reference to the war crimes that the crew of her historic warship self had committed.

!I-8

Japanese submarine as depicted in Victory Belles.

* CleavageWindow: see below.
* CustomUniform: I-8's swimming suit isn't just a boring school swimsuit or a dull competition swimsuit, it's a brilliant gradient green fish-scale swimsuit. She also wears a heavily cropped Imperial Japanese Navy officer's uniform that only covers her arms and her shoulders and is cut to explicitly provide a CleavageWindow with her swimsuit.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: she wears a fish-scale swimsuit, a cropped navy officer's coat that's dissected from the chest down, and has flaps of pink cloth trailing behind her like a flower, not to mention the light kelp and starfish that adorn her feet.
* InnocentBlueEyes: she's got blue eyes, yes, but there's a chance that [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_submarine_I-8#War_crimes she might be innocent...]]
* KatanasAreJustBetter: even though she's a submarine, she's got one too.
* ShesGotLegs: as a natural result of her swimming suit, though, perhaps of this detail, her thighs are seen to be very supple and fit, [[FridgeLogic as many talented swimmers probably do.]]

[[/folder]]



'''This entire page serves as Unavoidable {{Walking Spoiler}}s. Read ahead at your own risk!'''

[[folder:England]]

!Abercrombie

English monitor as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BackpackCannon: how she carries her huge, oversized cannons, which, for some reason, aren't downscaled like everyone else's guns.
* BlindingBangs: how her hair usually is in her standard CG.
* CoolHat: wears an olive green beret.
* DeathRay: her ultimate ability, Rhongomiant, fires a huge laser that damages everything in its path.
* GreenEyes: normally her long bangs cover them up, but they get revealed in her damaged CG.
* HairDecorations: wears two green side ribbons and a pair of metal cat ears of sorts that may serve as her radar.
* HiddenBuxom: as her damaged CG reveals...
* JokeCharacter: subverted. Her stats are very lackluster, but what makes her valuable is the ultimate ability that she possesses.
* {{Shoutout}}: her Rhongomiant ultimate ability is one to Kay's hero skill in VideoGame/EiyuuSenkiTheWorldConquest.
* StatusAilment: her Rhongomiant attack inflicts several status debuffs to anyone who survives the attack, such as less effective armor, more slowly regenerating shields, and stun.

!Amethyst

English sloop-of-war as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BackStab: her Silent Step ability has an additional side effect that gives her a +30% damage boost to all weapons for 10 seconds when she attacks out of Silent Step in exchange for her noise suppression system ending its stealth effects.
* CriticalHit: Amethyst's abilities focus on these, in a system of mechanics where critical hits aren't very prominent. Her own personal ability, Amethyst, gives herself a 10% chance to deal an immediate +50% extra damage to any attack at all times.
* {{Determinator}}: she's got an 8 in endurance.
* EyepatchOfPower: wears one over her left eye, with a purple crosshair on it.
* FragileSpeedster: a less than average defense at 5, a great 8 in speed, and average destroyer health ratings.
* HairDecorations: black hairband with a black cloth and a small cluster of purple jewels and a pair of red ribbons.
* HairIntakes: they're set more forward on her head than most examples.
* MagicalEye: her left eye can grant up to nine allies (not including herself) a 10% chance to land a critical hit that instantly adds 25% extra damage to any attack.
* OjouRinglets: what her HairIntakes turn into down towards the ends.
* ParasolOfPain: on top of looking stylish and matching her uniform's color scheme, it also serves as her radar peripheral station and, as her damaged CG reveals, can even launch torpedoes out from underneath it.
* PhenotypeStereotype: subverted - she's got the blonde hair, but instead of blue eyes, they're red.
* PurpleIsPowerful: she's clad head to toe in purple.
* {{Shoutout}}: has three prominent ones.
** her Silent Step ability is one to Caveira's ability of the same name from VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege.
*** her Silent Step is also a double-shoutout to the Amethyst Incident in RealLife, in which she had had to escape control of the People's Liberation Army by sailing some 167 km and bypassing Chinese ships and coastal defenses flawlessly.
** one of her passive abilities, Amethyst, is one to an item of the same name in VideoGame/EiyuuSenkiTheWorldConquest that gives a 10% chance to land a critical hit.
** Simon, the name of her magical left eye, is also another RealLife shoutout to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_(cat) Simon]], the cat who served aboard her from 1948-1949 as the unofficial ship mascot.
* StealthExpert: she possesses a special ability similar to Sendai's noise-suppression system that also silences Amethyst's movement noises, though instead of completely getting rid of them, it simply makes her movement noises extremely hard to hear, effectively making her silent.
* SupportPartyMember: as seen in the entries above, Amethyst's abilities center on giving her allies critical hit chances to boost their damage, albeit rather unreliably.

!Bulldog

English destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BadassLongcoat: it makes her look like a Cambridge professor, according to her in-story description.
* DistinguishedGentlemansPipe: smokes a short, stubby pipe. She is most definitely not a gentleman, however.
* DoubleWeapon: the switchblades she uses have blades on both ends, one white and one black.
* DualWielding: she uses two double-bladed switchblades as her melee weapons.
* GenderBlenderName: certainly most English girls wouldn't be named Bulldog.
* MinidressOfPower: except it's not a minidress, but a very big sweater.
* NiceHat: wears a small black bowler hat that looks like it could fall off her head at any moment.
* PhenotypeStereotype: subverted, she's got the blonde hair, but instead of blue eyes, she's got steely gray ones.
* WearingAFlagOnYourHead: but instead of on her head, she wears the Union Jack as an oversized sweater. The sweater is so big that it hides whatever she's wearing on her lower body - probably short-shorts.

!Glowworm

English destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AlternateUniverse: Glowworm's image of being a cute private school student who looks like she goes to Hogwarts thanks to her black wand that glows green gets butchered into one of being a ship girl who throws semtex grenades around and fights like hell.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Glowworm's semtex grenades will ignore armor and deal triple shield damage against anything they affect.
* {{Determinator}}: her endurance stat is a staggering 9. Her Will and CDR ratings are no slouches either, at 60% each.
** her passive ability, Slugger, is similar to Kawakaze's, but hers gives Glowworm +6 to all combat stats and a passive -20% reduction to all forms of incoming damage while she is fighting while outnumbered or when fighting a ship type stronger than herself.
* HairDecorations: has two black radar-like hair ornaments that tie up her twintails for her.
* InstantBandages: in her damaged CG, she's got a bandaid on her head. Teeters on PointlessBandaid territory because she's seen to be hit around her body, not her head.
* MinidressOfPower: this time, Glowworm's got a private school student's uniform on her, and the top sweater is enough to clear her waist...barely, as usual.
* PhenotypeStereotype: classic blonde and blue eyes, though her eyes seem to have pink center pupils.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: wears a relatively thick red and black one.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: her explosive traits revolve around her ability to make semtex grenades with a small metal pouch that she carries with her at all times, and these semtex grenades she can set off remotely with the wand that she carries with her.
* TwinTails: blonde ones.
* YouAreNumber6: subverted, Glowworm doesn't go by her pennant number, H-92, but she does have it stamped on her right thigh, as her CG's reveal.

!Jackal

English destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* ArmorPiercingAttack: Prydwen, Jackal's unique ability, disables enemy shields in a 25 meter radius from Jackal when activated.
* CloseRangeCombatant: being a destroyer, having talons capable of tearing through Smartsteel, ranking a 10 in speed and an 8 in endurance, and a default 50% skill in unarmed and small melee combat make her this.
* CultureEqualsCostume: subverted. She wears a standard J-Class ship girl uniform (or at least she shares one with Javelin, another J-Class destroyer), but over it she wears a shawl over her left shoulder and traditional gold jewelry on her ears, hair, and scalp. And in her damaged CG, her uniform gets torn to reveal her underclothes, and instead of a bra, she wears a black and gold sash.
* {{Determinator}}: a big 8 in endurance and 70% in both Will and CDR. She needs these, considering her defense doesn't exist.
* DumbMuscle: fights like an animal but only has a 3 in intelligence, but then again it could be the same case as Yuudachi's.
* EyeColourChange: as a result of getting damaged, her eyes turn from gray to gold in her damaged CG.
* FlamingHair: subverted, the end of her hair can be seen ignited on fire in her damaged CG but her entire hair isn't on fire. It's also somewhat difficult to tell whether or not it's her own hair igniting itself on fire, or if that fire was caused by the shells she took from battle to get damaged.
* FragileSpeedster: a huge 10 in speed, but a pitiful defense rating of 0, only 50 armor points, and 700 hit points. These are practically submarine-tier health ratings.
* GlassCannon: a whopping 10 in attack, but a nonexistent defense rating of 0.
* GlowingEyes: in her damaged CG, her left eye begin to burn with a topaz haze.
* HairDecorations: wears gold jewelry to accentuate her traditional image.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: she wears her torpedo launchers over her wrists as wrist braces, and on them are triple-pronged gold claws.
* LittleBitBeastly: she's got jackal ears.
** Why does her Prydwen ability only cover such a short area of effect? [[GeniusBonus Jackals typically hunt and scavenge either alone or in pairs - meaning that in a typical ship girl fleet formation, if anyone is within 10 meters of Jackal, it's most likely because they are specifically teaming with Jackal to attack their enemy.]] In addition, her Comradeship is only ranked at 20%.
* MeaningfulName: Jackal slightly resembles a jackal with the ears and claws but more importantly fights like one.
* MinidressOfPower: the uniform that the J-Class destroyers share have pleated blue skirts that barely clear their waists.
* MulticoloredHair: she normally has pale tan and black hair, patterned in a similar manner to a jackal's coat of fur.
* PowerDyesYourHair: in her damaged CG, her hair goes from pale tan and black to all black.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: in her damaged CG, she gains long black hair, a sign of her beastliness emerging in her damaged state.
* {{Shoutout}}: her special ability is Prydwen, which is one to Palamedes' ability of the same name in VideoGame/EiyuuSenkiTheWorldConquest.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: in her damaged CG.
* SupportPartyMember: her Prydwen ability grants all allies (including herself) a temporary 1000 health buffer within 10 meters.
* YouAreNumber6: subverted, Jackal doesn't go by her pennant number, F-22, but she does have it stamped on her left thigh, as her damaged CG reveals.

!Javelin

English destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AlternateUniverse: the torpedo-launching mast that she carries in her CG's ingame is instead replaced by an actual javelin that not only launches torpedoes but also serves as the medium for Javelin to execute her most powerful attack, Clarent.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: her javelin is able to pierce enemy shields and bypasses 80% of enemy's shields. It also even has a 5% chance to completely shatter an enemy's shields with an attack. Her Clarent attack also goes through and destroys shields.
* TheBerserker: her passive ability, Mutiny, allows her to enter a frenzied state if she drops below 50% health, but when she enters this state, Javelin will not listen to any order issued to her and will attack any enemy at will.
* BladeOnAStick / ImprobableWeaponUser: she uses a mechanical javelin called the L-61 that also serves as a torpedo launcher (and can deploy a massive beam cannon). Of note, Javelin in Warship Girls does carry a mast with loaded torpedoes on its end, but it is not a bladed weapon itself.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: subverted; like Kaga, Javelin is saved before her own Abyssalization conversion was completed, so like Kaga, she now exists as a partial-Abyssal ship girl. But while she's still in her right mind, she can and will definitely get crazy if it comes down to it.
* CriticalHit: one of the only examples in the story's mechanics to have an explicitly mentioned critical hit mechanic, Javelin's Clarent attack has a set 10% chance to score a critical hit on an enemy that's hit by it that forces them to take 50% extra damage than usual.
* DeadlyUpgrade: has three ways to put her instantly at death's door, so to speak:
** her Mutiny passive ability gives her +5 speed, +25% agility and reflex, and +50% attack speed, but not only will she be unable to follow any orders given to her, but she will automatically gain +50% fatigue and +10% insanity once Mutiny wears off.
** when she gets Abyssalized, her Javelin, also Abyssalized, now powers up her Clarent ultimate ability by instantly doubling the amount of damage it deals at will, but in exchange, Javelin gets instantly put on 99% fatigue ''and'' insanity.
** Javelin also has the same Abyssalization upgrade drawbacks as Shoukaku and Kaga.
* DeathRay: her Clarent ability. It will explicitly evaporate any enemy that cannot withstand its damage output, and given what it's based off of, it more or less looks like a giant frickin' laser beam when deployed.
* EmpathicWeapon: because Javelin gets Abyssalized too like Kaga and Shoukaku during the fleet's operations in Germany, her javelin also gets Abyssalized and is implied to behave similarly to Kaga's and Shoukaku's Abyssal sniper rifles.
* HairDecorations: she wears a white and red headband.
* HavingABlast: she has access to amphibious torpedoes, and her Abyssalized L-61 Javelin can even produce explosions of its own without torpedoes.
* HeroicSacrifice: during the fleet's operations in Germany, when a detachment of British ship girls including Javelin gets sent down to the northern coast of Germany to investigate Abyssal activities, Javelin, hit by a torpedo, stays behind so that everyone else can escape, using her Clarent attack to delay the Abyssals but ends up getting captured herself.
* HighClassGlass: she wears a gold-lens monocle over her left eye, but it's a targeting monocle that assists her in combat acquiring targets for her weapons.
* JackOfAllStats: her combat starts are all either average or above average at 6's and 7's, except for her intelligence, which is a humble 4.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: Javelin is one of the only ship girls in the story who uses amphibious torpedoes that can travel either through the air or through the water. U-511 is the only other one who uses torpedoes like these.
* MinidressOfPower: the uniform that the J-Class destroyers share have pleated blue skirts that barely clear their waists. In Javelin's case, you can even see her pennant number stamped on her thigh even without resorting to looking at her damaged CG because that's how short her dress is.
* MulticoloredHair: has gradient pink-to-peach hair.
* ParryingBullets: her javelin allows her to parry incoming attacks while taking none of the temporary health damage that normal parries for everyone else will incur.
* PhenotypeStereotype: ''technically'' she's a blonde, and with blue eyes to boot.
* {{Shoutout}}:
** her Mutiny passive ability is one to her RealLife counterpart that had a mutiny aboard her that took place on October 17, 1945.
** her Clarent ability is one to Mordred's Hero Skill of the same name as seen in VideoGame/EiyuuSenkiTheWorldConquest.
* YouAreNumber6: subverted, Javelin doesn't go by her pennant number, G-61, but she does have it stamped on her left thigh, as her CG's reveal.

!Juno

English destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* {{Charisma}}: her two best stats are 8's in both negotiation and charisma.
* CoolCrown: wears a tiara decorated by white flowers and adorned with a clear veil.
* CustomUniform: compared to her sister Jackal, anyway. Juno's uniform has flower petal-like coattails and a clear coattail behind her that all hang from her waist.
* FlowerInHerHair: her tiara is decorated with white flowers on both sides.
* FragileSpeedster: not to the extent that her sister Jackal is, but having a mere 3 in defense, an above-average 7 in speed, and slightly less-than-average armor and health qualifies.
* HairDecorations: wears a clear veil on her head held up by a gold tiara.
* LifeDrain: her unique ability, Cat's Cradle, allows her to lifesteal to heal herself back up to 50% health when she attacks an enemy with a melee attack. Considering that she can only use this ability when her health drops down below 30% health, this is a welcome side effect for her.
* MinidressOfPower: the uniform that the J-Class destroyers share have pleated blue skirts that barely clear their waists.
* OneHitKill: her unique ability also allows her to one-shot a single enemy target.
* YouAreNumber6: subverted, Juno doesn't go by her pennant number, F-46, but she does have it stamped on her left thigh, as her damaged CG reveals, much like her sisters Jackal and Javelin.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: has short light lavender hair.

!Nubian

English destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BareYourMidriff: as a result of her traditional attire.
* CultureEqualsCostume: wears the traditional attire of the Nubian people in Africa.
* HairDecorations: wears a small gold laurel on her head and long gold earrings that peek out from underneath her shemagh.
* NiceHat: not a hat, per se, but she wears a red shemagh.
* StatuesqueStunner: she's described to be very tall for a destroyer, rivaling the heavy cruisers or capital ship girls in terms of height.
* TribalFacePaint: not too much, but she does have several stripes of red and blue paint underneath the corners of her eyes on her cheeks.

!Rawalpindi

English Armed Merchant Cruiser as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BareYourMidriff: her attire has her doing this.
* BraidsOfAction: has a single large briad that wraps over her head and hangs at her side like a ponytail.
* CultureEqualsCostume: she dresses like a traditional Indian woman, with a few modifications, of course.
* FlowerInHerHair: has a morning glory or lily in her hair.

!Roberts

English monitor as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BackpackCannon: how she carries her huge, oversized cannons - which differs from her canon self, who is depicted riding her gun instead.
* CoolHat: wears an olive green beret.
* DeathRay: her ultimate ability, Rhongomiant, fires a huge laser that damages everything in its path. She shares this ability with her sister Abercrombie.
* GreenEyes: like her sister Abercrombie.
* HairDecorations: wears two green side ribbons and a pair of metal cat ears of sorts that may serve as her radar.
* JokeCharacter: subverted. Her stats are very lackluster, but what makes her valuable is the ultimate ability that she possesses.
* {{Shoutout}}: her Rhongomiant ultimate ability is one to Kay's hero skill in VideoGame/EiyuuSenkiTheWorldConquest.
* StatusAilment: her Rhongomiant attack inflicts several status debuffs to anyone who survives the attack, such as less effective armor, more slowly regenerating shields, and stun.

!Arethusa

* BadassInANiceSuit: she comes dressed as a prim and proper British naval officer - save for the minidress.
* CoolHat: wears a naval officer's peaked hat.
* EscortMission: Arethusa's unique passive ability gives her temporary stat increases whenever she is escorting another ally. As an added bonus, her ally also gets an armor and health buffer for her escort duration.
* IcyBlueEyes: certainly matches her white hair.
* MasterOfAll: ''all'' of her stats except for her cost are 8's, making her a ''very'' powerful light cruiser right off the bat on stats alone.
* MinidressOfPower: white pleated skirt with red lines.
* {{Shoutout}}: she's based on an original concept design by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1876510?tags=hms_arethusa_(26) dakku (ogitsune)'s HMS Arethusa.]]
* SupportPartyMember: her second passive ability allows her to issue orders to her allies if they are either regular soldiers or ship girls who are beneath her in ship type tier. When she does this, all allies under her command gain +10% all combat attributes and a +1 to a single random combat stat.

!Belfast

English light cruiser as depicted in Victory Belles.

* CultureEqualsCostume: she is wearing what appears to be traditional English attire.
* GreenEyes: apparently the British have a thing for green eyes.
* HairDecorations: she's got what look like a pair of green sea stars on the right side of her scalp on her hair.
* OfCorsetsSexy: she wears a small leather corset around her abdomen and torso.
* ZettaiRyouiki: perhaps a grade B, but that's going off her [[http://i.imgur.com/JWlq3NY.jpg CG]]. It's possible that, if viewing her normally, her blue skirt is long enough to hide the portions of thighs above her green boots. (And would boots even count in place of thigh-highs?)

!Exeter

* BadassInANiceSuit: she shares the same uniform as Arethusa, which is unusual because normally, only ship sisters share uniforms.
* CoolHat: wears a naval officer's peaked hat, like Arethusa.
* {{Determinator}}: she is ''the'' {{Determinator}} in the entire British fleet. 80% Will, a maxed out CDR, and the cherry on top, a colossal 15 in endurance. No one can surpass Exeter in terms of raw endurance.
* GreenEyes: apple-green ones.
* MightyGlacier: subverted, she does have a 9 in defense, but she's also got an 8 in speed, so she's not necessarily slow.
* MinidressOfPower: white pleated skirt with red lines, same as Arethusa.
* NecessaryDrawback: in exchange for her immense stats and health, Exeter suffers the same drawback as Amagi does in which she has a very measly 200 armor points, which is destroyer-tier armor on a ''heavy cruiser''.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: presumed averted, as both Exeters appear in chapter 341 as part of Queen Sarah's consort during the Transatlantic Alliance conference.
* PhenotypeStereotype: subverted; she has darker blonde hair and green eyes instead of blue.
* {{Shoutout}}: she's based on an original concept design by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1668605 dakku (ogitsune)'s HMS Exeter.]]
** her whole Trigger passive condition is one to her sinking in RealLife.
* SituationalDamageAttack: Exeter's passive ability makes her situationally very dangerous to enemy battleships by giving her critical hit chances and much more lethal headshot bonuses against them.
* TraumaButton: as a result of her RealLife sinking at the hands of the Imperial Japanese Navy, Exeter is very reluctant to serve alongside Japanese ship girls and suffers -2 all stats if she must. If she deploys specifically with any of the ship girls whose RealLife counterparts were involved in the battle in which she'd sunk, Exeter loses another -1 all stats. In order to prevent any stat loss, she ''must'' deploy with either Ikazuchi or Inazuma.

!Exeter

English heavy cruiser as seen in Victory Belles.

* GreenEyes: she has emerald green eyes. Strangely enough, the existing Exeter also has green eyes...
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: presumed averted, as both Exeters appear in chapter 341 as part of Queen Sarah's consort during the Transatlantic Alliance conference.
* RoyalRapier: appears to be more of a fencing-type rapier.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: green ones to match the rest of her green uniform.

!Conqueror

* {{Alcohol}}: her favorite kind is scotch.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* TheMusketeer: All Orion-class battleships and Erin carry and use sabres in conjunction with infantry firearms and their naval cannons, contrasting with [[spoiler:the Warspites]] who don't use guns in infantry actions.
* NoodleIncident: along with Kongou, she and Thunderer were present at one bloody incident in which the Re-Class apparently painted a town red because one of the Inner Circle personnel in the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer refused to give her some fuel.
* RoyalRapier: not a rapier, per se, but a cavalry officer's sabre made of Smartsteel capable of ParryingBullets and cannon shells, to the extent that they can cut incoming cannon shells in half.
* {{Shoutout}}: the basic character designs of the entire Orion-Class are taken from those created by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1742569?tags=hms_orion_%28siirakannu%29 siirakannu]].
** mimics the Warden's execution from VideoGame/ForHonor in chapter 301.

!Erin

* {{BFG}}: uses a light machine gun, an L86-A2 Light Support Weapon, as her primary firearm for land engagements.
* BoomHeadshot: executes an enemy He-Class by slicing half of its head off with her sabre.
* DeadpanSnarker: in chapter 300, she makes two, an all-time record: one at Wakamiya and one at Warspite.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* ImmuneToFlinching: Erin's passive ability Hardline prevents her from ever flinching in battle.
* IneffectualLoner: Damon finds out that she's very much so this when he talks to her at New Chicago. Erin explains that this is because historically, she felt isolated as a warship and didn't feel like she ever really interacted with other ships that much.
* LikeCannotCutLike: averted in Erin's case: her passive ability Hardline specifically gives her an additional 25% damage buff when attacking enemy battleships.
* MightyGlacier: slightly zig-zagged by her entry in the stat sheet: she has 12s in attack, defense, and intelligence and a 10 in endurance, but a 1 in speed. At the same time, while she has the highest armor point rating in the whole fleet at 3000, she only has an abysmal 1000 hit points, the lowest for any battleship in the fleet. There are destroyers in the fleet who have more hit points than she does.
* TheMusketeer: uses guns and a Smartsteel rapier, just like the Orion-Class.
* TheQuietOne: Doesn't speak much.
* RoyalRapier: uses a Smartsteel sabre that the Orion-Class also use.
* SmallGirlBigGun: Erin is explicitly stated to be the shortest battleship among the British battleships who join Damon's fleet after Operation London, yet there's no reason why her ship guns are any smaller than her peers', plus she even uses a machine gun as her primary firearm while most of the Orion-Class use L85-A2 assault rifles.
* {{Shoutout}}: like the Orion-Class, the basic character design Erin is taken from that created by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1763603?tags=hms_erin_(siirakannu) siirakannu]].
* StatusBuffDispel: Erin has an inversion of this with her passive ability Hardline, which makes her completely immune to all enemy debuffs.

!Monarch

* {{Alcohol}}: her favorite kind is whiskey.
* DeadpanSnarker: frequently makes quips and witty remarks to those around her based off what she happens to hear. It helps break her usual TheStoic mold.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* TheMusketeer: All Orion-class battleships and Erin carry and use sabres in conjunction with infantry firearms and their naval cannons, contrasting with [[spoiler:the Warspites]] who don't use guns in infantry actions.
* RoyalRapier: not a rapier, per se, but a cavalry officer's sabre made of Smartsteel capable of ParryingBullets and cannon shells, to the extent that they can cut incoming cannon shells in half.
* {{Shoutout}}: the basic character designs of the entire Orion-Class are taken from those created by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1742569?tags=hms_orion_%28siirakannu%29 siirakannu]].
** When she describes the Abyssals:
--> Monarch: [[Film/ThreeHundred "By nature, they fight in the shade - or, in this case, from the depths of the oceans below."]]
* TheStoic: always professional and level-headed. Except for when she trolls people.
* {{Troll}}: chapter 185 firmly establishes her as this, as she loves to tease the hell out of her older sister Orion and encourages Damon's own trolling of Orion when ginger ale gets involved.

!Orion

* {{Alcohol}}: her favorite kind is rum.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: is subjected to one when Damon orders her NOT to drink any ginger ale when his cousin delivers a fresh, cold case of the beverage to them. Her response?
--> Orion: "You are utterly cruel! Did your country not compose its founding documents to include the outlawing of cruel and unusual punishments?!"
* DeadpanSnarker: makes a few quips of her own from time to time.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* HiddenDepths: while she and her sisters all have taken a good liking to ginger ale during their stay in Chicago, Orion loves the stuff to the point where her sisters tease her over it whenever they get the chance.
* LampshadeHanging:
** points out the absurdity of the giant lindworm controlled by [[spoiler:the Abyssal]].
** also wonders why outdated World War I battleships like herself and her sisters would be chosen as ship girl candidates and constructed. This being said, the introduction of H.M.S. Warspite, both canon and in-story, makes this lampshade hanging quite amusing.
* TheMusketeer: All Orion-class battleships and Erin carry and use sabres in conjunction with infantry firearms and their naval cannons, contrasting with [[spoiler:the Warspites]] who don't use guns in infantry actions.
* NoodleIncident: not one that she herself was involved in, but her sisters Conqueror and Thunderer were, along with Kongou: the Re-Class apparently painted a town red because one of the Inner Circle personnel in the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer refused to give her some fuel.
* RoyalRapier: not a rapier, per se, but a cavalry officer's sabre made of Smartsteel capable of ParryingBullets and cannon shells, to the extent that they can cut incoming cannon shells in half.
* {{Shoutout}}: the basic character designs of the entire Orion-Class are taken from those created by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1742569?tags=hms_orion_%28siirakannu%29 siirakannu]].

!Prince Of Wales

* AllohistoricalAllusion: in light of recent events in-story, Prince of Wales wonders why England didn't leave the European Union sooner.
* {{Determinator}}: while her actual endurance stat is only above average at 7, her unique passive ability called "Adrenaline" gives her extra bonus stats and restores a chunk of her armor and health every five minutes that she is in combat, and these bonuses stack up to an hour's worth of fighting.
* GenderBlenderName: while many of the English ship girls have cases of this, Prince of Wales takes the cake because, well, she's being called a ''prince''.
* IcyBlueEyes: perhaps because of her rather cold demeanor.
* InterserviceRivalry: she seems to have an aversion to the army, going off a comment she's made about why ship girls should bother using infantry weapons when they have big ship guns that suit them much better.
* LadyOfWar: looks like a fancy British noblewoman.
* {{Shoutout}}: she is taken from an original design concept by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/409577 mamo williams]] (warning: link is NSFW!).
* SituationalDamageAttack: she has a special Revenge passive ability that allows her to deal extra damage against carriers and planes.
* SmallGirlBigGun: she's described to be even shorter than Erin, perhaps being the shortest battleship girl in the story.
* TheSmartGuy: an impressive 13 in intelligence.

!Renown

* {{Determinator}}: a big 9 in endurance.
* HairDecorations: has a red hairband that ties up her hair into a bun.
* LadyOfWar: dresses nicely and is one of the strongest battleships in the story in terms of raw health and defense.
* LightningBruiser: she's a battlecruiser and has a speed rating of 11, along with a 70% in Reflex and 60% in Agility.. She's also got a 10 in defense to make her all the more dangerous.
* LikeCannotCutLike: averted for Renown as well: she deals 15% extra damage against other battleships.
* PrimAndProperBun: to accentuate her image as a LadyOfWar.
* {{Shoutout}}: her design is based off [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/52409?tags=hms_renown an original concept by nano.]]
** this is due to the fact that the author had put Renown and Repulse into the story before their VideoGame/WarshipGirls versions were released.
* SituationalDamageAttack: Renown's first attack when ambushing an enemy will deal +300% extra damage thanks to her Prowler passive ability.
* StoneWall: is this with 2100 armor and 2000 health, reinforced with 10 defense and 9 endurance. She also happens to have 11 speed, but that's just a cherry on top.
* VeteranUnit: the story classifies her as this with the passive condition "World Warrior" that gives her several major combat buffs.

!Repulse

* {{Determinator}}: an even bigger 11 in endurance.
* HighSpeedMissileDodge: her Slip Step passive ability allows her to physically see incoming torpedoes so that she can dodge them more easily. And even if she does get hit by them, she's got an innate 30% chance to simply disarm them the moment they touch her.
* LadyOfWar: just like her sister Renown; they basically have the same "uniform".
* LightningBruiser: she's a battlecruiser and has a speed rating of 11, along with a 70% in Reflex and 80% in Agility.. She's also got a 10 in defense to make her all the more dangerous.
* LikeCannotCutLike: averted for Renown as well: she deals 15% extra damage against other battleships.
* SituationalDamageAttack: Repulse's first attack when ambushing an enemy will deal +300% extra damage thanks to her Prowler passive ability.
** her Revenge passive ability also gives her extra damage against enemy planes and against enemy carriers.
* StoneWall: is this with 2100 armor and 2000 health, reinforced with 10 defense and 11 endurance. She also happens to have 11 speed, but that's just a cherry on top.
* VeteranUnit: the story classifies her as this with the passive condition "World Warrior" that gives her several major combat buffs.

!Rodney

* BraidsOfAction: has a long braided ponytail.
* {{Charisma}}: a 9 in charisma. Having an 8 in negotiation also helps.
* {{Determinator}}: a huge 17 in endurance alone. Also noteworthy is the fact that she is one of the only few characters in the story to have a ''negative'' insanity rating at -30%.
* GreenEyes: faded green eyes.
* LadyOfWar: in a professional sense; she's described to appear like a professor from an English college.
* MightyGlacier: 11 in defense and a very comfortable 3000 hit point pool, but a 3 in speed.
* MinidressOfPower: a plain pleated and checkered skirt. Granted, it looks much more modest than the skirts most other girls wear, if they do.
* {{Shoutout}}: she is taken from an original concept design by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1851394 yorktown cv-5.]]
* VeteranUnit: cemented as a passive ability that grants her several strong status buffs and immunities and an EXP boost for allies operating with her.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!Thunderer

* {{Alcohol}}: her favorite kind is tequila.
* AnalogyBackfire: when she makes her BadassBoast of "Our torpedoes will blot out the sun", she realizes that they're now operating at night, so her metaphor doesn't really work anymore. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Besides, how are torpedoes supposed to blot out the sun while underwater?]]
* {{BFG}}: uses a light machine gun, an L86-A2 Light Support Weapon, as her primary firearm for land engagements.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* TheMusketeer: All Orion-class battleships and Erin carry and use sabres in conjunction with infantry firearms and their naval cannons, contrasting with [[spoiler:the Warspites]] who don't use guns in infantry actions.
* NoodleIncident: along with Kongou, she and Conqueror were present at one bloody incident in which the Re-Class apparently painted a town red because one of the Inner Circle personnel in the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer refused to give her some fuel.
* RoyalRapier: not a rapier, per se, but a cavalry officer's sabre made of Smartsteel capable of ParryingBullets and cannon shells, to the extent that they can cut incoming cannon shells in half.
* {{Shoutout}}: the basic character designs of the entire Orion-Class are taken from those created by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1742569?tags=hms_orion_%28siirakannu%29 siirakannu]].
** given the staggering amount of torpedo power the Combined Fleet has, with even the battleships equipped with double torpedo launcher modules, this is what she says:
--> Thunderer: [[Film/ThreeHundred "Our torpedoes will blot out the sun!"]]
** mimics the Orochi's execution from VideoGame/ForHonor in chapter 301.

!Tiger

* {{Determinator}}: an 8 in endurance and one of the few ship girls in the story to have a negative insanity rating at -10%.
* GreenEyes: candy green ones, to be precise.
* LadyOfWar: like Prince of Wales, she looks like an English noblewoman with guns on her back.
* LittleBitBeastly: she has visible canine fangs, and she wears a tiger-stripe shawl to go with the rest of her attire.
* {{Shoutout}}: she is taken from an original design concept by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/937663 flak (aaa's room)]], ''three years'' before Kantai Collection was even released.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: matches her dress, too.

!Warspite (''VideoGame/WarshipGirls'' version)

The ship girl incarnation of the H.M.S. ''Warspite'', pennant number 03.

* ElegantWeaponForAMoreCivilizedAge: while not explicitly mentioned on her part, seeing that she never uses a gun for the entirety of the assault on Whiskey Hotel, it's safe to assume that she shares this view with the other Warspite, in contrast with her contemporaries the Orions who have no such qualms.
* InSeriesNickname: goes by "Winifred" whenever she's together with the other Warspite for the sake of ease of differentiation.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted, both Warspites are introduced ''together'' in the story, even, in chapter 249 at the start of the final attack on Whiskey Hotel.
* {{Ojou}}: carries herself with the air of an elegant, high-class English noblewoman, though she's definitely a level haughtier than the other Warspite.
* ParryingBullets: how she's compelled to fight when attacked by gunfighters.
* RoyalRapier: a {{Shoutout}} to Lucina's sword from VideoGame/FireEmblem and shares the same name, the Parallel Falchion.

!Warspite (canon version)

* AffectionateNickname: gets called "Wicky" by Iris, based off her first nickname, Wikolia.
* AltumVidetur: a very small example: she utters the phrase "in terra", which means "on land" when she's talking about her decision to remain faithful to her sword as her only weapon during land engagements. Warspite is the only person in the entire story who's included even a smidgen of Latin in her speech, possibly as an indication of her gentlewomanly British persona.
* CallingYourAttacks: pretty much does this for every special attack she performs with her Falchion.
* CoolChair: averted from the game - Warspite has no such chair in this story, as she's seen standing whenever she fights.
* TabletopGame/{{Chess}}: is seen playing chess with Iowa in chapter 268.
* DontMakeMeDestroyYou: issues Iowa (canon) one of these after the two Warspites defeat her together, which Iowa is all too glad to accept.
* ElegantWeaponForAMoreCivilizedAge: explicitly states in chapter 249 when Damon offers to give her his submachine gun for her to use that she feels that using guns for her is "unseemly", in contrast with her contemporaries the Orions who have no such qualms.
* FlashStep: like Wisconsin, she uses this to be mobile with her sword.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* HiddenDepths: when she speaks with Damon in chapter 267, she reveals to him that her current fear with being a recent newcomer to the fleet is coping with possible feelings of homesickness as time goes on.
* InSeriesNickname: goes by "Wikolia" whenever she's together with the other Warspite for the sake of ease of differentiation.
* LadyOfWar: even more so than her ingame rendition: not only does she serve in a long-range battleship bombardment against the White House, but she's a talented swordwoman [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen who refuses to stoop to the level of using firearms in land combat]] and almost matches Iowa's levels of MinnesotaNice.
* LightningBruiser: even though she's very much so a battleship and can run through bullets like they're [[{{Pun}} BB pellets,]] she's also very quick and agile, as she needs to be in order to fight with just her sword as her personal creed dictates.
* LudicrousMeleeAccuracy: uses her Tipper attack to land a DiagonalCut onto Iowa (canon) during their fight and slashes her down the chest, perfectly in between her breasts. Since Iowa (canon) has an impressive, let's say, upper hull armor, and given the size of Warspite's Falchion, assuming it's more or less the same as the one [[VideoGame/FireEmblem it's referencing]], it's a mystery how Warspite even lands a hit like that.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted, both Warspites are introduced ''together'' in the story, even, in chapter 249 at the start of the final attack on Whiskey Hotel.
* RepressedMemories: the thought of her wartime crews who served aboard her during her times of active warship service in both world wars brings Warspite to tears in chapter 267.
* RippedFromTheHeadlines: just barely a week after she was implemented ingame, like Graf Zeppelin before her, Warspite finds her way into this story as well.
* RoyalRapier: a {{Shoutout}} to Marth's sword from VideoGame/FireEmblem and shares the same name, the Falchion.
* {{Ojou}}: carries herself with the air of an elegant, high-class English noblewoman, and she seems to be considerably more polite than the other Warspite. Given her design as recently implemented in the game, this practically comes as no surprise.
* ParryingBullets: how she's compelled to fight when attacked by gunfighters.
* {{Shoutout}}: an obvious one for anyone who is into competitive [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Melee]]: Warspite (canon) executes an attack called Tipper and hits Iowa with the tip of her Falchion in a downwards slash down to the floor, sending Iowa flying and hitting a wall so hard she bounces off it, all references to Marth's forward smash attack ingame and his special Tipper mechanic that inflicts absurdly higher knockback than usual.
** she uses Marth's down-B counter in chapter 300 and his neutral aerial attack in chapter 301. She also uses Orie's Sacred Arrow and Divine Thrust attacks from VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth.
** also has one for Dudley from VideoGame/StreetFighterIV, as the one attack she employs during the assault on Whiskey Hotel that doesn't involve her sword is called the Corkscrew Cross, Dudley's Ultra II combo.
* StaffOfAuthority: averted from the game, like her Coronation Chair - Warspite in this story has not yet shown either her scepter or orb at all, as her only depicted piece of equipment is her Falchion.

!Ark Royal

English carrier as seen in Victory Belles.

* GreenEyes: she's stated to have candy green apple eyes.
* MinidressOfPower: her navy blue uniform serves as this.
* NiceHat: she wears something of a folded explorer's hat, complete with a large feather quill.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: even her uniform is all-blue.
* ZettaiRyouiki: in between Grade A and B.

!Illustrious

* ArcherArchetype: one of the few carriers in the story to actually wield a bow-type weapon.
* CoolHat: wears a Royal Navy officer's peaked hat.
* {{Determinator}}: an 8 in endurance.
* MinidressOfPower: a dark pleated one.
* PhenotypeStereotype: pale blonde hair and muddy blue eyes.
* RetroUpgrade: she uses modernized English longbows that come with an infrared laser pointing module, a sound suppression system to silence its shots, and an airstrike/artillery laser designator.
* {{Shoutout}}: she is taken from an original concept design by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1763867 fujibejifu.]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!Victorious

* ArcherArchetype: one of the few carriers in the story to actually wield a bow-type weapon.
* CoolHat: wears a Royal Navy officer's peaked hat.
* GirlishPigtails: has these to differentiate herself from her sister.
* MinidressOfPower: a dark pleated one.
* PhenotypeStereotype: pale blonde hair and muddy blue eyes.
* RetroUpgrade: she uses modernized English longbows that come with an infrared laser pointing module, a sound suppression system to silence its shots, and an airstrike/artillery laser designator.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A, like her sister.

!Swordfish

* HairDecorations: wears aviator goggles on her head and has a hair ornament that looks like a swordfish fin that keeps her hair in a ponytail. Wait, why aviator goggles...?
* IcyBlueEyes: perhaps to reflect her submarine nature.
* MinidressOfPower: short white pleated skirt with red lines.
* RoyalRapier: has one at her left side in a black sheath.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: wears a small brown one.
* {{Shoutout}}: Swordfish's design is taken from an original design concept by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1801076?tags=swordfish_(airplane) dakku (ogitsune)]]. Funnily enough, the original design is not for [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Swordfish_(61S) Swordfish the submarine]], but instead for the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairey_Swordfish bomber aircraft Swordfish.]]
** as usual, being a submarine means she's got Cloaking, one to VideoGame/StarCraft.
* TomboyishPonytail: probably necessary for her diving.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: has gradient blue-white hair from top to bottom.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Germany]]

!Z-1 Leberecht Maass

* TheAce: much like the Shiratsuyu-Class of the Combined Fleet, the German destroyers have very high armor and health points and strong base stats in their entries in the stat sheet. They also have the highest level caps of any destroyer in the story thus introduced at 150.
* BadassBandolier: she carries a large bandolier of magazines for her HG-40 around her waist.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: Lebe uses a modernized WWII-era MP-40 submachine gun with a 40-round magazine.
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* GratuitousGerman: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* NecessaryDrawback: besides their Triggers, both Z-1 and Z-3 have a Cost rating of 3, as opposed to the usual 1 or 2 required by Japanese ship girls.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, the German ship girls only use a few German words sprinkled in their English speech.
* {{Shoutout}}: her primary firearm is the HG-40, a modernized MP-40, and it's one to the DLC weapon of the same name seen in VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For Z-1, this comes in the form of taking double damage from airstrikes, a reference to the demise of her RealLife counterpart.

!Z-3 Max Schultz

* TheAce: much like the Shiratsuyu-Class of the Combined Fleet, the German destroyers have very high armor and health points and strong base stats in their entries in the stat sheet. They also have the highest level caps of any destroyer in the story thus introduced at 150.
* {{Determinator}}: a 9 in endurance.
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* GratuitousGerman: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* GunsAkimbo: she uses two [=MP7-A2=] submachine guns as her firearms of choice, each to shoot one-handed.
* NecessaryDrawback: besides their Triggers, both Z-1 and Z-3 have a Cost rating of 3, as opposed to the usual 1 or 2 required by Japanese ship girls.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, the German ship girls only use a few German words sprinkled in their English speech.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For Z-3, this comes in the form of taking double damage from naval mines and +25% from torpedoes.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike.
* UnorthodoxReload: Max wears a special utility belt that has two forward magazine ejection ports so that when she requires a reload for her [=MP7-A2=] submachine guns, all she needs to do is throw the spent magazines out, fit the bottoms of the mag receivers against the ejection ports of her belt at her sides, and let her belt reload her guns for her so that the only manual part of her reloading would be to load the first bullet. Just so that she doesn't have to go through this trouble, Max will ''always'' shoot her guns in such a way that she will always have the last bullet in each gun remaining in the chambers so that she won't have to load their chambers manually.

!Prinz Eugen

* BigSisterWorship: heavily subverted; she still calls Bismarck "schweister", or sister in German, but she's nowhere near the {{Fangirl}} that she is in canon.
* BloodKnight: subverted; she doesn't show any particular enthusiasm for fighting, but she shows no hesitation towards it either.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: Prinz Eugen uses a modernized STG-44 rechambered for the [=7.62x39mm=] round and is implied to have a top rail to take modern combat optics like an ACOG/RMR.
* GenkiGirl: subverted, there's no explicit mention of her acting this way during the few amounts of narration that do focus on her.
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, she only sprinkles a few German words into her English here and there.
* SupportPartyMember: her Field Marshal passive ability lets her give her allies faster lock-on, more damage against those particular locked-on targets, and temporary combat stats if they are fighting in front of her upwards of 500 meters.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For Prinz Eugen, this comes in the form of radiation phobia; she will refuse to deploy anywhere where there is a significant radiation presence, and this, too, is a reference to her RealLife counterpart's demise as a test target in Operation Crossroads.

!Bismarck

* TheAce: Bismarck can be considered a candidate for the strongest overall battleship in the story with 2000 armor points, 4000 health points, and 10's in all stats across the board, with the obvious exception of Cost, which is a 9, but seriously, who cares about that.
* {{BFG}}: her MG-42 deployable machine gun.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: she uses a modernized MG-42 as her primary firearm.
* BulletCatch: she catches a 120mm tank shell with her bare hand in chapter 149.
* {{Determinator}}: a big 10 in endurance.
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* GratuitousGerman: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* LightningBruiser: just look at her stats! She'd even count for MightyGlacier, too, if her speed wasn't also a 10. She's as tanky as Amagi, but with actual armor points to protect the health as well.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, the German ship girls only use a few German words sprinkled in their English speech.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For Bismarck, this comes in the form of taking additional damage from airstrikes and torpedoes, a reference to her RealLife counterpart that was crippled in an airstrike.

!Graf Zeppelin

* TheAce: her stats, armor and health points, and maximum level cap are all much stronger than the average carrier from the Combined Fleet.
* CardsOfPower: she keeps her canon design of using cards as her plane holders, but in this story, she no longer needs a flight deck to launch her planes and can simply deploy them by throwing the cards straight into the air, and the cards will turn into planes mid-flight.
** DeathDealer: Graf is also mentioned to be proficient in using these same cards as weapons, much like Damon used metal-studded playing cards as weapons during Operation Charlotte.
* ColdSniper: speaks little and carries an FN Ballista sniper rifle that's got her own uniform color scheme on it as a weapon skin. She does warm up significantly whenever she's around Akagi, though.
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* GratuitousGerman: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* LongRangeFighter: amongst the German ship girls, and with good reason, since she's a carrier.
* LukeIAmYourFather: she considers Akagi to be her mother due to their RealLife historical connections. Kaga doesn't seem like she enjoys that when she hears of it.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: she also has a unique way of launching planes like Wakamiya and Enterprise by throwing cards into the air and deploying her planes directly into combat.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, the German ship girls only use a few German words sprinkled in their English speech.
* RippedFromTheHeadlines: taken and put from the game into the story with due time after her implementation.
* ScopeSnipe: pulls one of these off in chapter 147.
* SempaiKohai: averted; Graf instead sees Akagi as her mother instead. This makes Kaga want to hunt down the father.
* {{Shoutout}}: her Ballista sniper rifle is one to the rifle of the same name featured in VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2.
* SupportPartyMember: her Count passive ability gives fellow friendly carriers buffs to their planes' stats.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For Graf, this comes in the forms of decreased combat performance when she herself loses HP, if she witnesses other carriers sink, or if something bad happens to Akagi.

!U-511

* TheAce: amongst submarine girls. Her stats, as are all German ship girls', are leaps and bounds better than any other submarine's, and her armor point, health point, and maximum level cap ratings are easily on par with a destroyer's.
* ColdSniper: more like soft-spoken, but one nonetheless.
* FightingYourFriend: [[spoiler:she gets called in by Blackwood to neutralize the American ship girls who go in to secure the DSM in Westminster, Virginia, so that Blackwood and his forces can capture them...[[FridgeLogic but then again, U-511 has never met these four and thus would never know that they were working with Damon.]]]]
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, the German ship girls only use a few German words sprinkled in their English speech. U-511 may be the most frequent user of this, but that's probably only because she happens to have the most screen time in the story.
* {{Shoutout}}: while the other submarines only reference the Ghost's Cloaking ability, U-511 practically ''is'' a [[VideoGame/StarCraftI Ghost]]: on top her own personal Cloaking, she carries the C-10 Canister Rifle (which itself is a MythologyGag to the AlternateUniverse Fanfic/AmbiencePlatoonMoebiusFour storyline) that's capable of small arms fire and deploying Lockdown amphibious torpedoes. Several dialogue lines of hers are even taken straight from the Ghost's dialogue lines.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike. U-511 especially takes the cake for this, if only for the fact that her role as a Ghost and the sheer utility of her Canister Rifle has her seeing a lot more diverse action than the rest of her fellow German ship girls do.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For U-511, this comes in the form of suffering huge insanity penalties if she witnesses or comes to hear of another German ship girl sinking.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:United States]]

!Johnston

The ship girl incarnation of the U.S.S. ''Johnston'', DD-557.

* AffectionateNickname: both New Jersey and Haida call Johnston "Johnny", which, so far, she seems to accept or at least tolerate.
* AnAxeToGrind: not just one, mind you. She's described when she arrives at MAPS to join the fleet to be wearing an entire collection of them, including war hatchets, tomahawks, ''and'' combat axes. She takes this UpToEleven because she wears sets of them around her thighs like bandoliers.
* BackToBackBadasses: with Haida, naturally. In chapter 313, in particular, they demonstrate this.
* BadassBandolier: not for bullets, but for ''tomahawks.''
* BadassNative: built with a much darker skin tone than the more fair-skinned Japanese or American ship girls, comparable to that of Musashi's, to reflect the Cherokee and Creek heritage of her wartime captain, Lt. Commander Ernest Edwin Evans. She also makes her appearance fully geared for war, and among her personal arsenal is a collection of not combat knives, but ''war hatchets and tomahawks.''
** to further reinforce her Native American identity, in chapter 335, when Johnston uses her black electricity, she utters, "Anagalisgv", [[BilingualBonus the Cherokee word for "lightning"]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: at the end of chapter 266, the final segment depicts a short dialogue between two people, who are shortly joined by Eagle. Now that Haida and Johnston are introduced, those two people at the end of chapter 266 are none other than Haida and Johnston, judging by Haida's "eh" VerbalTic and Johnston's handling of a war hatchet.
* FriendlyEnemy: many of the Japanese warships Johnston faced during the Battle off Samar are indeed part of Damon's fleet, but the one who dares to approach her is none other than Kongou, who offers to show Johnston and Haida around the base. Funnily enough, Johnston doesn't recognize her when they meet in person, so Kongou has to remind her who she is (Kongou had shot Johnston with several shells but failed to sink her, because her armor-piercing shells, while they did cut Johnston's speed in half by passing through her engine room, failed to detonate on her armorless hull).
* GenderBlenderName: Johnston, and to an even greater extent, her nickname of Johnny. She doesn't seem to mind, though.
* MythologyGag: she first appeared over a year and a half prior to her introduction to this story in another Kantai Collection fanfic written by the same author, titled [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11109362/11/One-Shot-Fleet "Firebirds 3".]]
* OddFriendship: with Haida, because they had been built and activated at the same time by Lukenstor. She denies seeing her as a friend, but she still hangs around her during the fleet's beach day.
* RedBaron: in-story: when she arrives, Murakumo reveals that Johnston's last stand in the war immortalized her even among them as a legendary destroyer who dared to do - and did - the impossible. This is a reference to the fact that Johnston's survivors witnessed several Japanese officers paying their respects to Johnston as she sank by saluting. Though, the sudden and unexpected introduction of Johnston to the fleet cause a fair bit of awkwardness, as the Japanese ship girls could never have predicted Johnston being reincarnated again as a ship girl like themselves.
* ShockAndAwe: Johnston demonstrates her elemental power, black lightning, in chapter 335 by executing two Abyssal cruisers by holding them by their necks and electrocuting them.
* {{Shoutout}}: her uniform is based on [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1680610?tags=uss_johnston_(dd-557) u-tan (timerush90)'s Johnston design.]]
* TheStoic: She hasn't cracked a single smile ever since joining the fleet, and she seems dead serious all the time. [[ThinkNothingOfIt She also shoots down the praise that Haida and New Jersey give]] regarding her legendary last stand at Samar during the war, saying that duty was and continues to be her primary motivation to fight. On top of this, when she gets accused of [[HumbleHero trying to be humble]], she shoots ''that'' down too, saying that humbleness has nothing to do with the willingness to serve her country.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: in chapter 295, she reveals that her tomahawks are actually rigged as disguised improvised explosives, as she's seen throwing one at a helicopter that lodges itself into the cockpit window and then exploding it with a remote detonator.
** Johnston also shows that, in chapter 335, she can remotely detonate her IED combat axes and tomahawks without a remote detonator by simply sending a wireless signal to her blades from her main processing unit.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: with an axe, in Johnston's case - in chapter 287, during the search and destroy ALMA training simulation, Johnston trades a kill with Mutsuki by hurling her tomahawk at her.
** during the fleet assault on the Little Rock Air Force Base, she throws an explosive tomahawk up at an enemy attack helicopter and blows it up.
** in chapter 313, Johnston throws ''two'' of them in complete opposite directions, at the same time, while she's taking shots from enemies from both sides to plant her two combat axes in them and blow them up, taking out a large number of enemies.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: she speaks with a noticeable Cherokee Native American accent while her English is perfectly fluent, and Damon doesn't recognize it and is compelled to ask her what it is.

!Iowa (''Fanfic/PacificWorldWarIIUSNavyShipgirls'' version)

The ship girl incarnation of the U.S.S. ''Iowa'', BB-61.

* TabletopGame/{{Chess}}: is seen playing chess with Warspite in chapter 268.
* CutenessProximity: Has this reaction in chapter 239 to Toshi, Damon's pet puppy they picked up from Houston. Aoba and Damon even lampshade this.
* HiddenDepths:
** it's stated that Iowa, Wisconsin, Yorktown, and Enterprise all know how to speak Japanese fluently, and it's yet to be explained why they learned Japanese and how.
** Iowa and Wisconsin have learned how to sew during their time before joining the Combined Fleet.
** apparently, she and the veteran American ship girls are all quite adept at riding horses, having learned the skill out of necessity during the Federation War, as chapter 294 shows.
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with rifles.
* MinnesotaNice: She is unfailingly good-natured and polite.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted first in chapter 247, when the two Iowas meet for the first time, and later when they wind up being allies in the same fleet.
* {{Ojou}}: fits this persona with her persistent politeness in behavior and speech.
* ReluctantWarrior: she's very insistent on not hurting any Americans because she doesn't like the idea of shooting her own people, including the policemen of Chicago during one of their missions. Oddly enough, she's fine with shooting the Secret Service agents, but this may be because she sees them as Blackwood's personal defense force and that they must be eliminated if they get in the way.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: when Damon, Samidare, and Suzukaze pass her while visiting the U.S.S. Alabama (before Damon technically knows who she is), she's depicted sitting with one standing next to her, a shotgun-umbrella, no less. She's yet to use it in combat, though - but in chapter 242, she's finally seen using it, an [[http://www.ithacagun.com/defense37s.php Ithaca Model 37 pump-action]], in combat.
* {{Shoutout}}: she's seen reading [[http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1266344.Man_After_Man Man After Man]] near the U.S.S. Alabama.
* VeteranUnit: she was part of Seal Team Six (different from Sanford's Seal Team Six), the elite Navy Seal Team that comprised of the four American ship girls and !Samidare, who served throughout the first half of the nuclear apocalypse defending the United States from both human and Abyssal attackers during the Federation War and the Typhoon Wars.

!Iowa (canon version)

* AllohistoricalAllusion: at one point during the fleet's holiday in New Chicago, she's seen wearing a shirt that says,[[MemeticMutation "I MADE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN".]]
* {{BFG}}: her Chain SAW LMG. [[RuleOfCool The variant she's using requires her to hold and fire it at the hip, like she's carrying a minigun.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: pulls one off to interrupt Damon's and Blackwood's fight and manages to barely save his life by knocking aside the shot Blackwood intended to fire at Damon's head and buys him time to pull out the karambit that Blackwood's stabbed him with and throw it back at him to kill him.
* BoobsOfSteel: One of the most endowed ship girls and, being a battleship, monstrously strong, even fighting barehanded in melee.
** in chapter 315, this is taken to the literal extreme when an M109-A7 Howitzers's secondary machine gun shoots her with .50 BMG rounds. Iris takes the bullets in such a way that they mostly hit her in the breasts. Justified, as Iris herself testifies, the human female breast is made of mostly fatty tissue and thus has no serious repercussion of being damaged - but of course, she can only do this because she's a ship girl.
* DefectorFromDecadence: as evidenced by her intervention in the fight between Damon and Blackwood, as she must have actively rebelled against her own command prompt that forces her to recognize Blackwood as her Admiral in order to fight him.
* {{Determinator}}: near the end of Damon's fight with Blackwood, she forces her way into the lab in which the two are fighting to intervene by herself under the influence of an EMP field without the help of her ship strength (because she's forced to turn it off just to be able to get inside the lab without completely succumbing to the EMP field in the first place) and fistfights Blackwood even though she's at severe disadvantages against him. And when you realize that she's probably still got that sword wound received from Warspite, on top of being tired out from fighting against the Warspites before this, it's quite apparent that Iowa is really fighting up a slope when she intervenes at the time she does.
* FeelNoPain: Mogami asks Iris if it didn't hurt getting shot by all those machine gun bullets. Iris says that as a battleship, those bullets are nothing.
* GratuitousEnglish: naturally averted, seeing the trend of the story's depiction of ship girls.
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with a grenade-lobbing machine gun.
* InHarmsWay: while she doesn't ''try'' to get herself in harm's way, when danger comes to ''her'' in chapter 313 in the form of an enemy mortar strike, she seems to have a good time carrying Kagerou under her arm like a passenger and running out of the killzone.
* InSeriesNickname: Goes by "Iris" as of chapter 252 in order to distinguish herself from the brunette one.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: she and Warspite (Wikolia) grow quite close.
* MoreDakka: carries three firearms into battle when most ship girls only bother with two: the KAC Chain SAW, the Armsel Striker, and the Desert Eagle Mk. XIX.
** in chapter 334, when she and New Jersey deploy their ship armaments, part of their ship loadouts is an M61-A3 Vulcan Autocannon.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted first in chapter 247, when the two Iowas meet for the first time, and later when they wind up being allies in the same fleet.
* TheNicknamer: just like Damon, she seems to like doling out nicknames to her friends. Kongou becomes "Konnie", and Warspite becomes "Wicky".
* PluckyGirl: after joining the Combined Fleet, she's always this.
* PunchClockVillain: She demonstrates no eagerness to fight under Blackwood's orders even as she prepares to do so.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: wields an Armsel Striker high-capacity shotgun as her secondary firearm.
* {{Shoutout}}: while she's become good friends with the rest of the American ship girls and some of the battleships, Iris is especially close with Warspite and Kongou, for whom she has nicknames for, relationships that quite a few other fan artists ship.
** her primary firearm, the KAC Chain SAW light machine gun, is one to the Chainsaw featured in VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts, right down to its operating style and its ability to accept an undermounted M-203 grenade launcher.
* SweetTooth: her favorite ice cream is rainbow sherbet.
* TakingTheBullet: in chapter 315, when capturing the last enemy mortar site, Iris blocks a number of .50 BMG machine gun shots for Mogami since it's better for someone like her to tank the hits. What happens next is a different story...
* UnexpectedCharacter: ''Iowa'' having two separate ship girl incarnations existing at the same time, with the sole precedent of ''Samidare'' having both !Samidare and Samidare only because of explicit outside supernatural intervention saving the former's life when she should have died giving birth to the latter, probably caught a lot of readers off guard.

!New Jersey

The ship girl incarnation of USS ''New Jersey'', BB-62. Or she would be if her body had actually been completed. Now she's stuck in her original body as a sapient programme, at least until she finally got a shipgirl body shown on-screen in chapter 284.

* AmazonianBeauty: One of the first things we are told about her shipgirl body is that she is tall and muscular.
* {{BFG}}: lugs an M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon into combat as her primary firearm.
* CompositeCharacter: in this story, New Jersey is the fusion of two independent fanmade designs: one by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1884948?tags=new_jersey_%28pacific%29 jeanex as part of the Pacific: World War II US Navy Shipgirls project]] and one by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11574990/1/Belated-Battleship Belated Battleships]], another Kantai Collection fanfiction.
* TheGlomp: after being introduced to her new Admiral, New Jersey glomps all of her ship sisters.
* GunsAkimbo: at one point during their package recovery mission in chapter 294, New Jersey jumps into the second floor of a barn to clear it of hostiles and enters with her SPAS-12 in one hand and her Desert Eagle in the other.
* {{Handcannon}}: she has a customized Desert Eagle that sports an ornate gold dragon design along its slide, and the narrative also calls it the Black Dragon, the same as J's nickname.
* HealingHands: demonstrates this ability at the end of chapter 313, when she heals the civilian man whom Asashio has shot on accident thinking that he was an enemy mercenary of his otherwise fatal stomach gunshot wound. [[spoiler:When you think about it, [[FridgeLogic doesn't someone else have the power to heal with black flames, too...?]]]]
* HealItWithFire: ties in with the above, for natural reasons. But it appears that, [[spoiler:unlike another certain someone, [[FridgeLogic New Jersey is able to completely heal the man's fatal wound without any consequence or side effect.]]]]
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with a machine gun.
* InSeriesNickname: when Suzukaze first meets her at Philadelphia, New Jersey tells her to call her "J", since calling her New Jersey every time can get tiring really fast. When she joins the fleet in chapter 284, she tells Damon to do the same.
* MoreDakka: carries three firearms into battle when most ship girls only bother with two: the M-249 SAW, the Franchi SPAS-12, and the Desert Eagle Mk. XIX.
** in chapter 334, when she and Iris deploy their ship armaments, part of their ship loadouts is an M61-A3 Vulcan Autocannon.
* MyCard: what she hands to the wife of the civilian man whom Asashio has shot in chapter 313, saying that all the property and health damage done will be fully covered.
* OddFriendship: with Suzukaze, to people who don't know their relationship. Indeed, it would be a little odd to the Japanese ship girls to see an American battleship get along so well with a Japanese destroyer.
* PayingForTheActionScene: after she heals the man's stomach wound caused by Asashio, New Jersey gives the wife a card and explains to her that if she calls the number on that card, people will come out to her home to repair the damages done to their walls and even the man's gunshot wound, even though she just healed it herself. Subverted a little because, well, it's most likely not HER money that's being used to pay for those damages.
* PlayingWithFire: she's specifically mentioned to carry Dragon's Breath shells into battle for use with her SPAS-12.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: uses a SPAS-12 semi-automatic shotgun as her secondary firearm.
* {{Shoutout}}:
** like Haida, New Jersey's gear are one to that of Valkyrie's, a Navy SEAL operator playable in ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege'', including her SPAS-12 shotgun and her Desert Eagle sidearm.
** the dragon themes that her gear has, such as her Dragon's Breath shotgun shells on her belt and the dragon pattern on her black Desert Eagle, are references to her RealLife nickname, the Black Dragon.
** her design is a fusion of two separate fanmade designs. See CompositeCharacter above.
** just like [[Franchise/StreetFighter Guile]], New Jersey also has USA flags tattooed on her arms.
* StoneWall: becomes this in chapter 294, when she stands in front of an incoming train and brings it to a halt with her bare hands. Granted, Iris had already put on the emergency brake, but still.
* SweetTooth: she loves apple pies, which is a {{Shoutout}} of its own to another Kantai Collection fanfic, Fanfic/BelatedBattleships, whose main character, also New Jersey, also happens to love apple pies.
* ThemeNaming: in case you couldn't tell by now, dragons. Nickname, sidearm, even the ammunition, they're all pretty much dragon-related.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: She probably didn't know what kind of trouble giving Suzukaze the Colossus Reactor augmentation would cause down the line.

!Wisconsin

The ship girl incarnation of the U.S.S. "Wisconsin', BB-64. Based on Wisconsin from ''Fanfic/PacificWorldWarIIUsNavyShipgirls''.

* AffectionateNickname: called "Winny" by her fellow American ship girls.
* FlashStep: appears to pull this off in chapter 242 while wielding her rapier in order to reach opponents who are just out of her sword's range.
* HiddenDepths:
** it's stated that Iowa, Wisconsin, Yorktown, and Enterprise all know how to speak Japanese fluently, and it's yet to be explained why they learned Japanese and how.
** Iowa and Wisconsin have learned how to sew during their time before joining the Combined Fleet.
** apparently, she and the veteran American ship girls are all quite adept at riding horses, having learned the skill out of necessity during the Federation War, as chapter 294 shows.
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with rifles.
* MercyKill: puts an American soldier out of his misery once his suit gets breached in a rad zone and begins to expose him to radiation, on top of his gunshot wounds.
* {{Ojou}}: also one with Iowa.
* OddFriendship: With Yorktown, considering the other's warship self had already been sunk by the time hers was launched.. She seems to like doting on her.
* ParryingBullets: pulls this off in chapter 242 with the flat side of her rapier.
* ReluctantWarrior: also like Iowa, she doesn't like the idea of having to fight against her own people, though interestingly, she's not as adamant about it as Iowa is.
* RoyalRapier: like Iowa, she has a gentlewomanly persona and wields a naval officer's rapier.
* ShrinkingViolet: the shyest and most reserved of the American ship girls.
* VeteranUnit: she was part of Seal Team Six (different from Sanford's Seal Team Six), the elite Navy Seal Team that comprised of the four American ship girls and !Samidare, who served throughout the first half of the nuclear apocalypse defending the United States from both human and Abyssal attackers during the Federation War and the Typhoon Wars.

!Yorktown

The ship girl incarnation of the U.S.S. "Yorktown", CV-5. Based on Yorktown from ''Fanfic/PacificWorldWarIIUsNavyShipgirls''.

* AffectionateNickname: called "Yorkie" by her fellow American ship girls.
* ArcherArchetype: while she isn't this on land, she is this at sea, using an enhanced composite bow that fires either plane-launching bolts or explosive bolts.
* BerserkButton: potentially Wisconsin in the sense of anyone hurting her, which contributes to the OddFriendship between them.
* BoomHeadshot: taken quite literally in chapter 336, when Yorktown hits a Wo-Class carrier from downtown with an explosive arrow right in the back of the head before the arrow blows up.
* CoolHat: a traditional cowboy hat, to reinforce her cowgirl persona.
* {{Cowboy}}: affects a cowgirl persona, complete with the stereotypical cowgirl accent featured in old Western movies.
* TheDreaded: curiously, she's this to Imuya, even though Yorktown's the one who got sunk by her at the end of Midway.
* EnhancedArchaicWeapon: her Sparrow composite bow. Assuming it looks more or less like the one it's referencing, compared to, say, Aquila's simple Roman composite bow, Yorktown's bow is certainly this.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: when her Red Dead Revolvers ability is active, her eyes have big red X's drawn over her pupils.
* FriendlySniper: as opposed to Enterprise's ColdSniper.
* GunNut: geeks out over the sniper rifles they receive in the secret weapons cache stowed away in Damon's would-be coffin and takes the Barrett M107-CQ for herself.
* GunsAkimbo: is particularly fond of and very skilled at this, apparently: in chapter 242, her weapons besides her newly acquired Barrett sniper rifle are a pair of lever-action shotguns and her own pair of fifty-caliber revolvers.
* HandCannon: like her fellow carrier Enterprise, her main sidearms are a pair of S&W Model 500 revolvers.
* HiddenDepths:
** it's stated that Iowa, Wisconsin, Yorktown, and Enterprise all know how to speak Japanese fluently, and it's yet to be explained why they learned Japanese and how.
** apparently, she and the veteran American ship girls are all quite adept at riding horses, having learned the skill out of necessity during the Federation War, as chapter 294 shows.
** and in chapter 297 and 298, Yorktown demonstrates that she knows how to fly helicopters.
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with rifles.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: a stretch of this trope, but chapter 242 specifically describes the rate at which Yorktown fires her two revolvers as physically improbable for normal humans to do given the one-handed nature of their shooting combined with the revolvers' heavy recoils and tough handling.
** shows this off again in chapter 294, when she perfectly headshots ten Whitewater mercenaries in five seconds using her Red Dead Revolvers ability - on horseback, riding at full gallop, next to a train, at a distance of anywhere between fifteen to thirty meters.
** and again in chapter 336, this time with her Sparrow composite bow, when she hits a Wo-Class carrier with an explosive arrow at over eleven hundred meters.
* InHarmsWay: like Iris, she seems to have taken a great thrill from running out of the mortar strike's area of effect in chapter 313, as her subsequent dialogue with Hatsuyuki shortly shows.
* InterfaceScrew: when using her Red Dead Revolvers ability, her eyes perceive time much more slowly but can continue to see in real time, albeit with a grainy red layer that turns the whole world an obnoxious shade of red.
* MoreDakka: given the weapons that she's used, Yorktown might actually go into combat with a pair of lever-action shotguns, a pair of high-caliber magnum revolvers, and a high-caliber sniper rifle.
* NationalStereotypes: she definitely embraces many of the stereotypes of the United States, such as loving guns (particularly BIG guns), loving big explosions, etc., but in a more humorous way and not entirely a self-effacing manner, either.
* OddFriendship: with Wisconsin, who wasn't even launched by the time she sunk. As much as their personas clash, she gets long surprisingly well with the battleship, to the point where she will unabashedly shove her face into Wisconsin's midriff and ask for a head pat.
* OneHandedShotgunPump: while not a pumping motion, Yorktown, because she's dual-wielding lever-action shotguns, does this with her Model 1887s out of necessity in combat.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: uses a pair of S&W 500s as her sidearms, as stated above. She even uses a fully suppressed [[http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2009/03/03/sw-625-fully-suppressed-revolver/ S&W 625 "PSDR-3"]] .45 ACP revolver for her stealth missions.
* {{Shoutout}}:
** Drops several lines from [[VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} Jesse [=McCree=]]] and is even implied to use his Deadeye ultimate with her own suppressed PSDR-3. She also references Creator/ClintEastwood and his movies.
** Another one is her pair of lever-action shotguns, which are an explicit reference to the [[GameBreaking Model 1887s]] featured in VideoGame/CallOfDutyModernWarfare2's multiplayer.
** Her sniper rifle, the M107-CQ Airforce, is a sniper rifle variant featured in VideoGame/CombatArms.
** in chapter 294, gives one to VideoGame/RedDeadRevolver with her ability "Red Dead Revolvers" (which actually functions much more like the Dead Eye ability seen in VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption), one to VideoGame/KillingFloor2 for her fancy reload sequence with her dual revolvers, and one to VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} for her BondOneLiner of "Like shootin' fish in a barrel, that was."
** in chapter 334, her weapon for launching planes turns out to be the Sparrow Composite Bow featured as a Specialist weapon in VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: to further reinforce her Wild West cowgirl persona, she swings around a pair of lever-action [[http://chiappafirearms.com/products/82 Winchester Model 1887s.]]
* SweetTooth: her favorite ice cream is mint chocolate.
* {{Tsundere}}: shows a few signs of this towards Damon, but nothing full-blown.
* VeteranUnit: she was part of Seal Team Six (different from Sanford's Seal Team Six), the elite Navy Seal Team that comprised of the four American ship girls and !Samidare, who served throughout the first half of the nuclear apocalypse defending the United States from both human and Abyssal attackers during the Federation War and the Typhoon Wars.
* WeaponTwirling: does this with her shotguns and revolvers sometimes.

!Enterprise

The ship girl incarnation of the U.S.S. "Enterprise", CV-6. Based on Enterprise from ''Fanfic/PacificWorldWarIIUsNavyShipgirls''.

* AbnormalAmmo: she's able to fire a yellow-flame bullet with presumably enhanced power out of her S&W 500 to shoot the pilot of an Apache attack chopper in chapter 247. This is probably because she's using Damon's energy that she absorbed prior to this mission to give her bullet the power it needs to penetrate the bulletproof windshield of the helicopter's cockpit.
* AffectionateNickname: called "Ellie" by her fellow American ship girls.
* BadassBandolier: her first appearance in the story depicts her carrying rockets for her Bazooka in bandoliers around her chest.
* BoomHeadshot: point-blank-domes Suzuya in the center of the forehead with her S&W 500 Magnum. Ouch.
* ClintSquint: pulls one off while using her ability "Aces High".
* ColdSniper: more sociable than a true ColdSniper, but one nonetheless.
* CoolHat: wears a naval peaked hat everywhere she goes, even into battle.
* DeadpanSnarker: loves to be one when Damon and Yorktown are talking.
* DemolitionsExpert: Enterprise is the ''only'' ship girl currently who bothers carrying around a dedicated explosive platform in the form of a rocket launcher, her XM-6. The ones who come even anywhere remotely close to this are the Kagerou-Class, who only use 40mm grenades from their undermounted EGLM grenade launchers (and they've been known to shoot other kinds of 40mm grenades from them too, like smokes or flares), and Johnston, but...that's a little bit different.
* {{Determinator}}: her endurance rating is a huge 15.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: gains one very briefly when using her "Aces High" ability, when both of her pupils grow the patterns of sniper rifle scope crosshairs.
* TheGambler: seems to be quite proficient and lucky at poker games, as seen in chapter 268.
* HandCannon: her [[http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product4_750001_750051_764947_-1_757771_757767_757751_ProductDisplayErrorView_Y S&W 500.]]
* HiddenDepths:
** it's stated that Iowa, Wisconsin, Yorktown, and Enterprise all know how to speak Japanese fluently, and it's yet to be explained why they learned Japanese and how.
** apparently, she and the veteran American ship girls are all quite adept at riding horses, having learned the skill out of necessity during the Federation War, as chapter 294 shows.
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with rifles.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: she uses her S&W Model 500 to perfectly headshot an enemy at more than sixty meters with a single bullet, thanks to the aid of her Aces High ability.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: Enterprise holds the unique distinction of being the only carrier to deploy her planes via rocket launcher, through her XM-6 Bazooka, as opposed to the conventional traditional bow or crossbow launching medium.
* MoreDakka: while compared to the other American carriers, she might pale in comparison in the bullet department with only a single magnum revolver sidearm and a sniper rifle that isn't the biggest caliber that's used by the fleet, what makes up for this is her XM-6 Bazooka that she carries with her into battle for anti-vehicle or anti-squad use.
* MortonsFolk: offers one to the British ship girls in chapter 364: either exchange their information regarding what they've been doing operating in Australian waters for desperately needed medical aid, or risk being ignored and left on their own to weather the long voyage home and risk getting sunk for good by errant Abyssal forces.
* NotSoDifferent: has this view when [[HumanWeapon comparing ship girls like herself to guns and other weapons]], saying that both of them have been constructed to kill and destroy, otherwise there would be no point to constructing them in the first place.
* {{Shoutout}}: in chapter 242, an apparent ability Enterprise has is called "Aces High", a reference to the famous song of the same name by Iron Maiden.
* ThePerfectionist: hinted at in chapter 294: when Enterprise misses a shot with her sniper rifle out of the many she's already taken by that point, she's described to scowl very heavily at her own mistake.
* {{Shoutout}}: her primary sniper rifle, the MK-21 PSR, is the militarized version of the Remington MSR featured in VideoGame/CallOfDutyModernWarfare3.
* SmallGirlBigGun: while the story doesn't specify the heights of the American ship girls, if the source material is any indication, it's possible that Enterprise is the shortest among them. Not only does that not stop her from using big sniper rifles like her MK-21 PSR and even the Barrett M-95 that she picks up later, but in her introduction scene in chapter 219, she's depicted carrying a modernized Bazooka that's as tall as she is and a S&W 500 revolver.
* SmokingIsCool: like Damon, she seems to have a great liking for candy cigarettes and is rarely seen without one outside of combat or duty.
* TheStoic: definitely friendlier than the usual examples, but is still the most even-tempered of all the American ship girls. There are a few times when Yorktown does manage to make her flustered, however.
* TakeThat: When Damon asks her in chapter 242 if she doesn't want to use a more convenient firearm like an assault rifle instead of limiting herself to her bulky, unwieldy, and unnecessarily powerful S&W Model 500:
--> Enterprise: "I've got [[Film/{{DirtyHarry}} the most powerful handgun in the world]] right here. Why would I feel the need to take something inferior?"
* ThemeNaming: seems to have a thing for cards, as in chapter 242, she demonstrates two instances of this: her Aces High ability (which is supposed to be a musical reference first and foremost) and her BondOneLiner of "Straight...ten high". Reinforced when the story depicts her playing poker with some of the other capital ships, as she's very good at it and eliminates Yorktown from a match.
* VeteranUnit: she was part of Seal Team Six (different from Sanford's Seal Team Six), the elite Navy Seal Team that comprised of the four American ship girls and !Samidare, who served throughout the first half of the nuclear apocalypse defending the United States from both human and Abyssal attackers during the Federation War and the Typhoon Wars.
* WeAreStrugglingTogether: is compelled to shoot and force Suzuya to non-action to prevent her from killing the mission VIP. In addition, when Mogami shows up, she mediates the two of them by force by keeping them away from one another.
* WeaponTwirling: does this with her revolver sometimes.

!Saratoga

* AlternateUniverse: the author has made a few changes to Saratoga's canon design to make it ''slightly'' more urban-combat friendly. Her white dress is shorter, only going down to her knees, and it doesn't hold her drum magazines underneath the folds; instead, the drum magazines are kept in a double layer around her utility belt.
* BadassBandolier: as mentioned above, a change made by the author to make her uniform make a little bit more sense in the context of urban combat is to have the fifty-round drum-magazines that are seen in Saratoga's default ingame CG as fastened inside the fold of her dress instead be kept in bandolier form around her utility belt. She still has her thirty-round box magazines as smaller bandoliers around her thighs, however...[[MoreDakka probably because there just wasn't enough space on her belt.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: she intervenes just in time to save a few wounded Delta soldiers during the skyscraper assault in Little Rock.
* BigOMG: averted, she's yet to be seen gasping this like she does ingame.
* {{Charisma}}: a 9 in her Charisma stat.
* CoolGun: her canon Thompson plane launcher is repurposed into a sleek white modernized Thompson variant in the story, the LDS M-2029 Thompson, with flip-up LED optics.
* DeadlyGas: subjected to [[spoiler:Nova Gas]] after being defeated by the Inner Circle Agents in chapter 378.
* DeadlyUpgrade: her Nuclear Fusion Core basically gives her a form of energy that she can use as an auxiliary power, but the more she uses it, the more she contaminates herself with radiation. When her radiation reaches critical levels, her body will begin to malfunction and eventually shut down if she doesn't rid her core of its radiation.
* FriendlySniper: now qualifies as this, with her pleasant persona and her new sniper rifle that she comes equipped with to join the rest of the fleet at Little Rock following her repairs and proper calibration, an M40-A5.
* GratuitousEnglish: averted wholesale, as with all ship girls in the story.
* GoneHorriblyWrong: Saratoga finds out the hard way that the Smartsteel in her body, for whatever reason, is not working properly - specifically, she cannot tank bullets like every other ship girl does and gets terribly injured when trying to secure the Little Rock VIP.
* HighSpeedHijack: while not necessarily at high speed, she does jump out of her Cloaked Banshee stealth chopper into an enemy Little Bird to toss its pilots out to hijack it and save some soldiers from being shot by the Little Bird.
* HistoricalInJoke: just like the ones listed on Saratoga's canon entry, in this story, Saratoga is explicitly described to be handling her Thompson left-handed to reflect her carrying her gun left-handed in her canon artwork.
* ILoveNuclearPower: subverted. The Nuclear Fusion Core augmentation she comes with is causing her body to accrue nuclear radiation that will eventually cause her body to break down within an hour if she doesn't find a way to calibrate her body to handle the augmentation, which is impossible unless she flies back to base or goes back to Lukenstor. She doesn't even know what it's even supposed to do for her in the first place, at least not at the time that she reaches Little Rock in this state.
** with the update to Saratoga's entry in the stat sheet, we now know that it's because Saratoga's Nuclear Fusion Core isn't calibrated properly that is causing her body to accrue unnecessary radiation and consequently shut off her usual ship girl durability and make her just as weak as a normal human.
* InSeriesNickname: Sara, just like in canon.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: unlike all of the rest of the carriers in the story, Saratoga alone uses a close-ranged submachine gun as her primary firearm, but then again this may be because she didn't have any other weapon to use other than the gun that she came with.
* MightyGlacier: is this with her stats, with an 8 in defense, 4 in speed, and higher armor/health points than the average carrier in the fleet.
* MoreDakka: while all of the other carriers have big sniper rifles and pistols, with the American carriers packing just a little bit more heat, Saratoga is the only carrier to carry a submachine gun for close-range engagements...not to mention there may or may not be a pistol somewhere on her person besides her sniper rifle and submachine gun. And don't forget those fifty-round drum mags around her belt.
* OneHitPolykill: Saratoga scores a double-kill with one bullet from her M40-A5 sniper rifle in chapter 313.
* RippedFromTheHeadlines: like Warspite, she gets this treatment as well, implemented into the story a week after her canon introduction.
* TheSmartGuy: is this among the American carriers, with a 9 in intelligence and a 9 in negotiation.
* TheSouthpaw: heavily implied to be left-handed, given the way she handles her Thompson, reloading it left-handed and shooting it left-handed.
* {{Shoutout}}: as her gun's stencils reveal in chapter 297, her M-2029 is one to the M-1927 Thompson featured in the Mob of the Dead zombies map for VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2 as a purchasable wall weapon.
** her M-2029's ELO sight is one to VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3.
** her Nuclear Fusion Core augmentation is one to VideoGame/StarcraftII and one to her RealLife counterpart's demise, being sunk as a test target in the nuclear tests of Operation Crossroads.
* TearsOfBlood: one of the results of being exposed to [[spoiler:Nova Gas.]]

[[folder:Canada]]

!Haida

The ship girl incarnation of the H.M.C.S. ''Haida'', G-63.

* AnArmAndALeg: in her scuffle with a Ru-Class battleship in chapter 336, the Ru-Class steals Haida's own combat axe and chops her left forearm off from halfway down the elbow.
* AnAxeToGrind: like Johnston, she also carries a war hatchet as part of her personal inventory to reflect her native attribute (she shares her name with a Native American tribe indigenous to the Pacific Northwest), though she only keeps one.
* AnIcePerson: in chapter 335, Haida reveals her proficiency with ice, as her war axe, fittingly named Black Ice, is able to generate black icicles on opponents upon impact.
** she herself can also directly manipulate black ice from her body, mainly through her hands, be it directly freezing someone or something or using water generate the ice.
* BackToBackBadasses: with Johnston, of course. In chapter 313, when Johnston gets launched into the third floor of a firehouse held by enemy mercs, Haida has herself launched too to join her American counterpart and friend and fights off enemies on one side of the hallway while Johnston fights off the other.
* BadassNative: subverted heavily; her appearance is that of a Caucasian teenager, but she does have a war hatchet as opposed to the military-standard combat knife as her bladed melee weapon.
* BladeOnAStick: what her single war hatchet can turn into if Haida extends its handle. She uses it in this mode as a war axe in chapter 335.
* BoomHeadshot: does this a few times to the Abyssals she fights in chapter 336, once with her black ice and another time with her Flak Cannon. She also pulls this off at a Ru-Class battleship, but unlike the previous two, the battleship doesn't die immediately from it.
* BringIt: gives her Abyssal opponents this in chapter 336 after taking a few hits and having to face another squadron of enemies.
* DefiantToTheEnd: is determined to be this when the Ru-Class approaches her to finish her off in chapter 336.
--> Haida: "Get some, bitch."
* FashionableAsymmetry: she wears a singular earring on her left earlobe, a {{Shoutout}} to the weapon keychains seen in ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege''.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: at the end of chapter 266, the final segment depicts a short dialogue between two people, who are shortly joined by Eagle. Now that Haida and Johnston are introduced, those two people at the end of chapter 266 are none other than Haida and Johnston, judging by Haida's "eh" VerbalTic and Johnston's handling of a war hatchet.
** Haida's combat axe is mentioned to be called "Black Ice", as this is what's written on the underside of the axe's serrated blade edge. In chapter 335, when Haida extends it out to a full-size war axe and fights Abyssals with it, it causes its opponents' bodies to sprout black icicles out of their own skin and flesh if Haida gets a good enough hit.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: see AnArmAndALeg above, a Ru-Class that Haida fights in chapter 336 uses the destroyer's own combat axe against her when they get into a brief melee.
* OddFriendship: with Johnston, because they had been built and activated at the same time by Lukenstor. Johnston denies seeing her as a friend, but she still hangs around her during the fleet's beach day.
* {{Shoutout}}:
** her design is based on [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/2248761?tags=myuto_(advent_retribution) myuto (advent retribution)'s HMCS Haida.]]
** her equipment is one to ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege'', of which she comes equipped with many of the same weapons and gear of Canadian operator Buck, including his assault rifle, his signature undermounted shotgun, and his sidearm. She even sports the name of his unit, the Joint Task Force 2, on the backs of her gloves, and she wears a small earring on her left earlobe that's shaped like a 6, just like the weapon keychain. And to top it all off, the war hatchet that acts as her bladed melee weapon that she has sports the letters "BLACK ICE" along its blade, the name of the DLC pack that introduced the JTF-2 operators into the game.
** [[Creator/MontyPython "Nobody expects the Canadian Inquisition, eh!"]]
** [[Franchise/StarTrek "Beam me up too, Cap'n!"]]
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: with a combat axe, in Haida's case in chapter 336, where she chucks it at a Ru-Class for a surprise attack and hits her right in the face with it.
* VerbalTic: she ends almost ''all'' of her sentences with the stereotypical Canadian "eh".
* VomitIndiscretionShot: when Haida gets smashed in the gut by a 16-inch shell, Haida's forced to vomit everything out of her gut, and the narration gets pretty detailed about what comes out.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Italy]]

!Libeccio

Italian destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/KantaiCollection.

* BigSisterWorship: she keeps her idolization of Warspite when they meet for the first time in chapter 300 and does her best to help Zara and Pola adjust to having Warspite as part of their fleet.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* {{Fangirl}}: she even calls herself one in chapter 300 when she's able to meet Warspite and make her acquaintance.
* FragileSpeedster: a 9 in speed and starts with 60% agility and reflex, but a 5 in defense and destroyer-tier armor and health.
* GlassCannon: ties in with her FragileSpeedster stats, but if she can get into melee range of her enemies, she can swiftly dispatch of them with her Assassin's Blades, as she demonstrates in chapter 303.
* GratuitousItalian: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* HiddenWeapons: has hidden blades in her shoes, specifically the heels.
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are by far the most frequent users of this, though Libeccio is perhaps the least egregious example amongst them.
* {{Shoutout}}: the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]] The reference [[CaptainObvious should be obvious.]]

!Camicia Nera

Italian destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BraidsOfAction: has two braids draped across both sides of her head, somewhat like laurels.
* CoolHat: has a black beret with an Italian eagle brooch on the front and a green horsetail.
* DeadlyGas: subjected to [[spoiler:Nova Gas]] after being defeated by the Inner Circle Agents in chapter 378.
* FemmeFatale: black military officer's uniform, cigarette, and attractive. It may be surprising to some at first glance that she is only a destroyer.
* MeaningfulName: her class, the Soldati-Class, are all named after different types of soldiers in the Italian armed forces. Camicia Nera's own name refers to the Blackshirts, a voluntary paramilitary force that supported and fought for Mussolini's Fascist government whose members famously wore black uniforms, hence their name, and Camicia Nera herself dons an all-black uniform - including a black beret, black boots, and black gloves.
* SmokingIsCool: likes and smokes cigarettes.
* TearsOfBlood: one of the results of being exposed to [[spoiler:Nova Gas.]]

!Espero

Italian destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* FemmeFatale: the other end of the FemmeFatale spectrum from Camicia Nera, with an orange dress, aristocratic hairdo, and a cigarette holder. It may be surprising to some at first glance that she is only a destroyer.
* LadyOfWar: she looks like a high-class Italian lady and conducts herself as such.
* ShesGotLegs: her dress is divided at its right side, revealing a ''lot'' of her right thigh, further accentuating her image as a sultry high-class, perhaps aristocratic Italian lady.
* SmokingIsGlamorous: more so this than SmokingIsCool, just based off her clothes alone.

!Lampo

Italian destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BadassCape: she wears what's technically a very big white capelet, but it should drape over her back like a cape.
* ExoticWeaponSupremacy: in her description, Lampo carries what looks like two light-gold swords with crooked blades that look like they're wielded together. [[http://i.imgur.com/JWlq3NY.jpg In her CG,]] it's her mechanism that allows her to launch torpedoes. But given the author, now that he's explicitly called them swords, they are more than likely a pair of exotic short swords that Lampo can detach at will and use for close-quarters combat.
* HairDecorations; she's got a special brooch on her hair, above the right side of her scalp. She also has two gold earring-looking things underneath her sidelocks.
* StatuesqueStunner: she's described to be the tallest out of all the new Italian ship girls.

!Zara

* BerserkButton: Warspite. The English battleship historically sank her and two of her sisters Fiume and Pola during the Battle of Cape Matapan, in which Zara and Fiume had doubled back after daytime action to check on Pola, who'd been crippled and stranded by airstrikes earlier in the day. Thinking that there would be no way the British fleet would attempt a nighttime engagement, the entire Italian squadron had their main guns offline, not knowing that Warspite and her own sisters Valiant and Barham were sneaking up to them. Zara and Fiume even saw the battleships approach but thought that they must be their fellow Italian ships, until the English battleships all blasted the two to oblivion. Not only was this battle the single worst defeat of the Regia Marina for the war, losing three cruisers in a single day, but Zara probably is extremely salty at Warspite and her sisters for attacking them in the way that they did.
* BigSisterInstinct: in chapter 300, when the two of them realize that Warspite is part of the Combined Fleet reinforcements, Zara immediately hugs Pola protectively to shield her from the English battleship.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: judging by the few dialogue lines that they do have, it seems they maintain this, though it may be subverted as usual.
* FreakOut: suffers this with Pola when they see Warspite. And perhaps contrary to canon and most fanwork portrayals, Zara is ''pissed'' seeing her there.
* GratuitousItalian: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* JackOfAllStats: has 6's across the board in her stats, with the one exception being endurance at an 8.
* NothingUpMySleeve: keeps her Assassin Blades [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed in her sleeves, under her wrists.]]
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are the most frequent users of this, and Zara even throws profanity at Warspite in Italian.
* {{Shoutout}}: has [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed hidden blades under both wrists and utters "Requiescat in pace" when she scores a kill.]]
** the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]]
* UnknownRival: In chapter 306, when Warspite says that she had not expected Italian shipgirls to exist, Zara accuses her of not seeing them as significant enough to be brought back as shipgirls.

!Pola

* AccidentalHero: in chapter 302, when the fleets engage in direct shelling, Pola, not used to such large-scale battles, fails to track all of the incoming shells and boosts to dodge one but ends up boosting right into the path of another one. As it turns out, Libeccio also made the same mistake and boosted the exact same direction, so Pola ended up taking a hit for Libeccio without even knowing.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: she might act similar to her goofy canon self outside of combat, but in combat, Pola becomes all business.
* ConfrontingYourImposter: both Pola's believe they are doing this when they first meet.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: judging by the few dialogue lines that they do have, it seems they maintain this, though it may be subverted as usual.
* FreakOut: suffers this with Zara when they see Warspite, hugging her sister out of terror tightly. If you consider what happened in the Battle of Matapan, Pola basically watched both of her sisters Fiume and Zara get utterly destroyed by Warspite and her sisters, [[FridgeLogic so she might actually be trying to protect Zara instead of taking refuge with her.]]
* GratuitousItalian: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* HiddenWeapons: has hidden blades in her shoes, specifically the heels and the toes.
* JackOfAllStats: has 6's across the board in her stats, with the two exceptions being endurance at an 8 and her charisma at 0.
* KickChick: she notably only uses kicks as melee attacks - justified because her hidden blades that can pierce Smartsteel armor are only in her boots.
* MythologyGag: the outfit she's got on during their mission in chapter 318 matches her official art outfit during the Mitsukoshi promotion.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted, she meets her alternate self in chapter 339, the Pola of Victory Belles. Naturally, as soon as they meet, they start bickering over the right to monopolize Zara.
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are the most frequent users of this.
* {{Shoutout}}: has [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed hidden blades in her boots and utters "Requiescat in pace" when she scores a kill.]] She also uses [[Franchise/StreetFighter Chun Li's Spinning Bird Kick]] and [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters one of Luong's supers.]]
** the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: probably one of the most standout examples of this in the story, Pola is both not a problem drinker and is an excellent fighter.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: more so this than BerserkButton, because Pola doesn't get angry at Warspite for showing up, that's what her sister Zara does, but she herself is terrified of her instead.

!Pola

Italian heavy cruiser as depicted in Victory Belles, not the one from Kantai Collection.

* BraidsOfAction: has a few running over her head.
* ConfrontingYourImposter: both Pola's believe they are doing this when they first meet.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: a navy blue one, and since she doesn't wear any sort of leggings or high socks like many ship girls, there's a ''lot'' of leg to show.
* HairDecorations: has two blue ribbons with her braids on her head, as well as a big purple hair bead that looks like a large grape.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted in chapter 339, the two Pola's meet and immediately enter a confrontation over who gets to keep Zara.
* ShesGotLegs: as a result of a combination of a DangerouslyShortSkirt and no thighhighs or the like.
* ThereCanBeOnlyOne: explicitly declares this to the first Pola when the two of them start squaring off over Zara.

!Littorio

* AlternateUniverse: a very minor one: the brooch on her chest has the emblem of the Regia Marina, the wartime Italian Navy, stamped on it.
* CombatMedic: Littorio's opening description explicitly mentions the Rod of Asclepius on her headdress, heavily implying this.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: averted, there is no sign of Littorio being goofy or quirky like she is ingame or in the 4koma.
* GratuitousItalian: averted, as with all foreign ship girls, they're fluent in their own native languages.
* NothingUpMySleeve: keeps her Assassin Blades [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed in her sleeves, under her wrists.]]
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are all frequent users of this.
* {{Shoutout}}: the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]]
* SiblingYinYang: Littorio is the graceful, kindhearted, and courteous side.

!Roma

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: almost expectedly, Roma in the story is much more sharp-tongued and decisive, and she's prone to a few profanities in Italian.
* AlternateUniverse: a very minor one: the brooch on her chest has the emblem of the Regia Marina, the wartime Italian Navy, stamped on it.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: averted, there is no sign of Littorio being goofy or quirky like she is ingame or in the 4koma. Roma is still quite the responsible sibling, however.
* GratuitousItalian: averted, as with all foreign ship girls, they're fluent in their own native languages.
* ImNotHereToMakeFriends: Downplayed. As she tells Littorio in chapter 319, she doesn't see the need for friends... outside her countrymen.
* NothingUpMySleeve: keeps her Assassin Blades [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed in her sleeves, under her wrists.]]
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are all frequent users of this.
* {{Shoutout}}: the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]]
* SiblingYinYang: Roma is the cold, stoic, and calculating side.
* StoicSpectacles: Roma in a nutshell.
* TheStrategist: she's the flagship of the Regia Marina.
* WarriorMonk: heavily implied; just like how Littorio has the Rod of Asclepius on her diadem, Roma has the Vatican coat of arms on her own.

!Aquila

* AlternateUniverse: Aquila sports a few additions to her canon design in this story: her unique eyes, her quiver full of plane-launching arrows, and her eagle glove on her right forearm.
* AnimalBattleAura: not just an aura either, the eagles she can produce with her arrows serve as allies that can distract enemies, light up their immediate vicinities because of the energies that they give off, and blind enemies by exploding like flashbang grenades.
* AnimalMotifs: as one would assume from her name, her abilities are all eagle-themed, and she can summon eagle energy companions from her arrows.
* ArchaicWeaponForAnAdvancedAge: in an era of modern warfare, firearm technology, and carrier ship girls who all use high-powered, high-caliber sniper rifles as their personal weapons, Aquila uses a simple composite Roman bow - albeit with Smartsteel-piercing arrows. [[BewareTheNiceOnes And she's lethal with it.]]
* ArcherArchetype: unlike most of the carriers featured in this story, Aquila actually uses a traditional bow, the same bow she uses in canon. As strange as it is to consider, Aquila of all carriers is perhaps the most faithful to her original ingame design as far as her weaponry and equipment go.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* FriendlySniper: just like her canon self, she's very kind and very approachable. She also doles out headshots with her bow and arrow just as easily as she launches planes.
* GratuitousItalian: averted, as with all foreign ship girls, they're fluent in their own native languages.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: with a bow. She lands a perfect headshot at ''over 800 meters'' with just a composite bow and arrow. As a reader put it in comparison, the current world record for the longest accurate archery shot is around 283m.
** her active ability, Eagle Eye, specifically allows her to land a guaranteed hit on anyone within a kilometer, assuming that she's given enough time to lock onto her target.
* MeaningfulName: "Aquila" is "Eagle" in Italian, and she has eagle-themed traits and equipment.
* NothingUpMySleeve: keeps her Assassin Blades [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed in her sleeves, under her wrists.]]
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are all frequent users of this.
* {{Shoutout}}: in her initial description, Aquila is said to have [[Film/EagleEye small but bright red dots in the centers of her pupils, surrounded by black rings.]]
** the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]]
* VerbalTic: averted, as Italian ship girls don't know how to speak Japanese in this story, Aquila's canon tic is impossible.

!Axum

Italian submarine as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BadassNative: Ethiopian, leopard skin, and carries around a quarterstaff that can shoot torpedoes.
* CustomUniform: unlike all of the submarines in the game so far, perhaps with the exception of U-511, Axum is the only one who doesn't explicitly wear some kind of swimming suit.
* DeadlyGas: subjected to [[spoiler:Nova Gas]] after being defeated by the Inner Circle Agents in chapter 378.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: like all submarines, she also carries [[VideoGame/StarcraftI Cloaking gears]] in her eyes to indicate that she can go invisible.
* InnocentBlueEyes: blue eyes and an innocent attitude.
* IsItSomethingYouEat: implied; she looks at Mattone, Venice's pet piglet, in chapter 339, and when Lampo tells her that Mattone is not food, she seems surprised.
* TearsOfBlood: one of the results of being exposed to [[spoiler:Nova Gas.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:France]]

!Commandant Teste

* AlternateUniverse: she's seen wearing black dress pants instead of a skirt and has a small French flag emblem on the middle rim of her beret.
* BlatantLies: tells the Queen of England that France has no fleet of ship girls...when she ''is'' one herself.
* IronLady: literally. Commandant Teste has somehow become the most powerful person in France by becoming President before the events of the story and seems to have been in power for some time.
* GenderBlenderName: it seems that all of the French ship girls are this: Commandant Teste is named after a French Navy officer and pilot [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Teste Paul Teste.]]
* GratuitousFrench: averted, naturally, as all foreign ship girls speak their native languages fluently.
* UnexpectedCharacter: it's fair to say that seeing Commandant Teste as the French president caught quite a few readers off guard.

!Maillé Brézé

French destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BadassBandolier: one that goes around her waist that carries not magazines, bullets, or grenades, but ''torpedoes''.
* BraidsOfAction: has two as sidelocks.
* FleurDeLis: has these as gold ornaments on the tops of her boots underneath her knees.
* GenderBlenderName: she's named after a French Admiral, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Armand_de_Maill%C3%A9-Br%C3%A9z%C3%A9 Jean Armand de Maillé-Brézé, Duke of Fronsac, Marquis of Brézé.]]
* HairDecorations: her high ponytail is held together by a big gold hair band of sorts.
* PointlessBandaid: for some reason, she's got a little white patch on her left cheek.

!Lamotte-Picquet

French light cruiser as depicted in Victory Belles.

* AloofDarkHairedGirl: she certainly looks like one.
* CigarChomper: she prefers cigars, though given that she's mentioned she's tried candy cigarettes and said that they weren't bad, she probably doesn't mind them either.
* GenderBlenderName: she's named after another French Admiral, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toussaint-Guillaume_Picquet_de_la_Motte Toussaint-Guillaume Picquet de la Motte.]]
* LadyOfWar: a Vietnamese version, complete with a cigar.
* {{Qipao}}: wears a modified version of this that resembles the one Tone and Chikuma wear in their Kai 2 states, but Lamotte-Picquet's has long and huge sleeves.
* TheQuietOne: she is very deliberate and soft-spoken.
* RapunzelHair: she's described as very tall, and her hair is also described to reach all the way down past her knees.
* ShesGotLegs: while she wears full-body black leggings, the leggings have openings that reveal her hips and bits of her thighs; the fact that her dress splits at both sides also helps show them off. If you look at her design, her legs are very long, attributing to why she is overall very tall.
* StatuesqueStunner: she's described to be very tall, though just how tall the narrative hasn't yet described.

!Algérie

French heavy cruiser as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BadassNative: traditional Algerian dress, two curved long daggers, and headdress.
* CultureEqualsCostume: being a ship named after French Algiers, Algerie wears traditional (but modified) Algerian attire.
* DualWielding: she has two curved daggers at her sides, and in her official CG as seen in the [[http://i.imgur.com/JWlq3NY.jpg Victory Belles kickstarter reveal CG's]], she actually wields them two-handed.
* GenderBlenderName: naturally, she's named after French Algeria.
* HairDecorations: wars a gold headband across the front of her scalp.
* RapunzelHair: not as dramatically long as Lamotte-Picquet's, but hers is no slouch either, reaching down to her waist.

!Dunkerque

French battleship as depicted in Victory Belles.

* DangerouslyShortSkirt: the description for her formal introduction to the story even says so, practically word for word.
* DeadlyGas: subjected to [[spoiler:Nova Gas]] after being defeated by the Inner Circle Agents in chapter 378.
* GenderBlenderName: she's named after the city of Dunkirk.
* GreenEyes: ''very'' vivid green eyes, [[http://i.imgur.com/JWlq3NY.jpg if you look at her CG]], especially.
* LongNeck: subverted, it's not inhumanly long, but her description does say that due to the way her jacket is open at the bosom and reveals the entirety of her neck and collarbone, her long neck is easily her most distinct physical feature (perhaps next to her green eyes).
* PhenotypeStereotype: ''almost'', she's got the blonde hair, but her eyes are green instead of blue.
* TearsOfBlood: one of the results of being exposed to [[spoiler:Nova Gas.]]

!Béarn

French carrier as depicted in Victory Belles.

* CultureEqualsCostume: Bearn wears traditional French clothes compared to the more modern attire of Dunkerque. Actually, with Bearn, half the French fleet wears some kind of traditional clothing.
* GenderBlenderName: she's named after Bearn, a traditional province of France located in the southwest tip of France.
* GoldDigger: apparently she enjoys the fact that she cost Lukenstor $8,400,000 in total costs.
* PhenotypeStereotype: Bearn is the classic western blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl.
* RoyalRapier: wears one at her right side.
* StatuesqueStunner: she's described to be the tallest ship girl in the French fleet, even taller than Lamotte-Picquet.
* WineIsClassy: apparently Bearn thinks that keeping an entire bottle of wine at her side makes her even ''more'' classy.

!Surcouf

French submarine as depicted in Victory Belles.

* ExoticEyeDesigns: she's also got the [[VideoGame/StarcraftI Cloaking gears]] that all submarines have to render themselves invisible.
* GreenEyes: like Dunkerque.
* RoyalRapier: wields one like Bearn, but it's not as ornate as Bearn's.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Russia]]

!Engels

Russian destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BlushSticker: perhaps to accentuate her happy-go-lucky appearance.
* CoatCape: wears a black jacket like this. The narration speculates that it might be from some anime where [[Anime/KillLaKill a girl runs around with a pair of gigantic red scissors.]]
* CoolHat: wears a large white hat with ear flaps and a big red star on it.
* {{Handguns}}: has a Makarov PMM as her sidearm.
* FashionableAsymmetry: she wears a striped thighhigh on her left leg.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: she's introduced carrying a Saiga 12K-030 combat shotgun.

!Reshitelny

Russian destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* CoolHat: wears a tall brown Russian fur hat.
* HeroicAlbino: with her white hair and red eyes.
* RussianFashion: she dresses like she's from a well-off Russian family. The narration when introducing her even blatantly says she looks like [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Ilya.]]
* SubmachineGuns: she's introduced carrying a [=PP19-01=] Vityaz-SN.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!Tashkent

Russian destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AssaultRifles: she's introduced carrying an A-545, a modernized version of the AEK-971.
* CoolHat: wears a black peaked hat.
* {{Expy}}: discussed by the narration, which wonders why Tashkent has a uniform that looks similar in appearance to the German destroyers'.
* {{Handguns}}: she's armed with Lebedev PL-14 handgun.
* FashionableAsymmetry: her right thighhigh is shorter than the one on her left.
* OjouRinglets: overlaps with MegaTwintails territory, as her drill hairs are quite large.
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: half true, her left thighhigh fulfills this, but not her right.

!Verniy

Russian destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AlternateUniverse: her design has been altered slightly so that she's now wearing black short-shorts, because in her original design, not only is she not wearing any pants of any description, but her top uniform isn't even long enough to at least make it vague that she's wearing anything over her panties.
** in addition, the earcups she's wearing in her original design have been upgraded to be an actual sonic gadget that appears to measure acoustic and audio levels somehow, judging by its narrative description.
* CoolHat: she wears a plain white beret with a little red star on it.
* ColdSniper: not that she's got a cold personality, per se, but because she's just shy, especially when she sees herself in Hibiki in chapter 354.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: in chapter 346, the ending segment depicts a Russian coup d'etat underway, in which the Russian ship girls are participating to assist the coup. One girl uses an [=OTs-03=] marksman rifle to engage palace guards in the Kremlin, and this girl turns out to be Verniy.
* GenderBlenderName: same case with Hibiki when she gets questioned as to why she's got a masculine name. In fact, all Russian ship girls have this, due to masculine Russian ship naming conventions.
* {{Handguns}}: she's armed with a KBP [=GSh-18=] handgun.
* HeroicAlbino: very pale and light gray hair and eyes with a darker shade of red.
* LongRangeFighter: she is one of two snipers in the Russian ship girl fleet, along with Novgorod.
* MeaningfulName: her original Japanese name, Hibiki, means "echo", and she wears powerful electronic earcups that allow her to echo-locate enemies to assist with her marksman duties.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted, Hibiki meets Verniy in chapter 354.
* {{Shoutout}}: her [=OTs-03=] marksman rifle is one to Glaz from VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege, complete with its flip-sight optic as seen in the game. Her sidearm, the [=GSh-18=], is also from the game, being one of two selectable sidearms available to Glaz.
* SmallGirlBigGun: she's only a destroyer and appears to be one of the shorter Russian ship girls, but she carries and uses one of the strongest firearms in her fleet.
* SniperRifles: she uses the Dragunov [=OTs-03=] SVU-A bullpup automatic sniper rifle.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: retconned in so that her appearance would at least be semi-acceptable in a heavily militaristic setting.
* ZettaiRyouiki: she ''would'' be a Grade A, if it weren't for the fact that she's wearing short-shorts instead of a skirt.

!Novgorod

Russian coastal defense monitor as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AlternateUniverse: Novgorod in this rendition does not have the ridiculous circular deck fixed around her waist.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: due to her historical age, Novgorod uses World War era Russian small arms, such as a Mosin-Nagant and even a Nagant M-1895 revolver. Of course, as with all historic weapons that have been broken out of the metaphorical museum, her guns have been modernized to chamber current Russian caliber rounds.
* CoolGun: her sidearm is definitely this, a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nagant_M1895 Nagant M-1895 seven-shot revolver]] whose unique "gas-seal" mechanism allows it to be suppressed, a very unusual ability for revolvers to have in general. It is also one of the only revolvers (if not ''the'' only one) to be designed specifically for the Russian armed forces. Novgorod's specifically also has a black body and a synthetic ivory frame.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: her eyes have sharp outlines around the center of her pupils, though what they are or do is not revealed yet.
* HairDecorations: she wears two side ribbons on her hair, one blue and one yellow.
* LadyOfWar: dresses like an aristocratic Russian lady and happens to be armed to the teeth.
* LongRangeFighter: along with Verniy, Novgorod is one of two Russian ship girl snipers.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: her historic warship self was one of the most unique and unusual (and one of the worst) warships ever built because [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_monitor_Novgorod she was a completely circular warship.]]
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: she wears full pantyhose over her legs underneath her skirt.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: her modernized Nagant M-1895 seven-shooter.
* SniperRifles: she uses a modernized Mosin-Nagant M-91/30 PU Sniper.

!Kirov

Russian light cruiser as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BraidsOfAction: has a single braid behind her head.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: the DP-M LMG that she uses is a machine gun produced back in the 50's, and her Tokarev TT-33 pistol is also one too, being the pistol that was intended to replace Novgorod's M-1895 revolver (but they ended up being used in the Russian military in conjunction anyway).
* CoolHat: wears a drab-olive beret to go with her uniform.
* FemmeFatale: tall and wears a full military officer's uniform, the only Russian ship girl currently to do so.
* HairDecorations: while not exactly on her hair, she does wear a special pair of earmuffs that go around and behind her head so that they don't flatten her beret.
* {{Handguns}}: carries a Tokarev TT-33 handgun as her sidearm.
* IconicItem: she has an old-fashioned camera that she carries around with her at all times.
* IcyBlueEyes: they're not ''too'' icy, being described as sea-blue.
* MachineGuns: carries a Degtyaryov DP-M light machine gun.
* MinidressOfPower: comes with her military uniform.
* PhenotypeStereotype: fits this, if you consider creme-orange a blonde hair color.
* {{Shoutout}}: her DP-M is one to the deployable mounted machine gun that Tachanka uses as his special ability in VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege.

!Murmansk

Russian light cruiser as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BadassLongcoat: the straightest example in the Russian fleet, fur-lined for the Russian weather.
* BraidsOfAction: like Kirov, has a single long braid in a similar style to Umikaze's.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: uses the World War II-era [=PPSh-41=] submachine gun as her firearm, modernized for modern combat. She also keeps a second one, because why not.
* CoolHat: wears a shapka as part of her uniform.
* GoingNative: seems to be the case for Murmansk (not that she had a choice about it, probably), as she is actually the U.S.S. Milwaukee, an American light cruiser. New Jersey recognizes her almost immediately, despite never having seen her or known that she would be here in Russia.
* GratuitousEnglish: averted in Murmansk's case specifically; while all the Russian ship girls speak with Russian accents, Murmansk is specifically described to speak fluent American English, giving away her original identity as the U.S.S. Milwaukee.
* GreenEyes: jewel-green ones, like emeralds.
* MinidressOfPower: navy blue pleated skirt.
* MoreDakka: she has ''two'' [=PPSh-41=] submachine guns, which are known for their very high rates of fire. In addition, the modernized drum-mags she has for them are specifically mentioned to hold seventy-five bullets instead of the historic seventy-one.
* PhenotypeStereotype: close, she has blonde hair, but she has vivid green eyes instead of blue.
* SubmachineGuns: uses not one, but ''two'' [=PPSh-41=]'s.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!Sovetsky Soyuz

Russian battleship as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AlternateUniverse: it's hard to tell if she's wearing anything on her lower body, so she's given black short-shorts like Verniy.
* BraidsOfAction: has small side braids on both sides of her head.
* HairDecorations: wears a red hair clip.
* MachineGuns: her main firearm is the PKP Pecheneg LMG, with a bullpup configuration.
* NonUniformUniform: although many ship girls wear "uniforms" that are certainly odd in the Russian fleet, Sovetsky Soyuz's is special in that she could easily pass for a city girl with the clothes she's got on normally.
* PurpleEyes: she's the resident flagship of the Russian fleet and has jewel-purple eyes.
* SmallGirlBigGun: she's barely taller than Hibiki, in comparison, yet she lugs around a giant Pecheneg light machine gun.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: black ones like Verniy's.

!Abercrombie

English monitor as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BackpackCannon: how she carries her huge, oversized cannons, which, for some reason, aren't downscaled like everyone else's guns.
* BlindingBangs: how her hair usually is in her standard CG.
* CoolHat: wears an olive green beret.
* DeathRay: her ultimate ability, Rhongomiant, fires a huge laser that damages everything in its path.
* GreenEyes: normally her long bangs cover them up, but they get revealed in her damaged CG.
* HairDecorations: wears two green side ribbons
Spoiler}}s past this point!

[[folder:The F.L.E.E.T. 2 Project]]

!Jeannie "Vatista" Sawatari

Lauren's daughter. The first
and a pair of metal cat ears of sorts that may serve as her radar.
* HiddenBuxom: as her damaged CG reveals...
* JokeCharacter: subverted. Her stats are very lackluster, but what makes her valuable is the ultimate ability that she possesses.
* {{Shoutout}}: her Rhongomiant ultimate ability is one to Kay's hero skill in VideoGame/EiyuuSenkiTheWorldConquest.
* StatusAilment: her Rhongomiant attack inflicts several status debuffs to anyone who survives the attack, such as less effective armor, more slowly regenerating shields, and stun.

!Amethyst

English sloop-of-war as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BackStab: her Silent Step ability has an additional side effect that gives her a +30% damage boost to all weapons for 10 seconds when she attacks out of Silent Step in exchange for her noise suppression system ending its stealth effects.
* CriticalHit: Amethyst's abilities focus on these, in a system of mechanics where critical hits aren't very prominent. Her own personal ability, Amethyst, gives herself a 10% chance to deal an immediate +50% extra damage to any attack at all times.
* {{Determinator}}: she's got an 8 in endurance.
* EyepatchOfPower: wears one over her left eye, with a purple crosshair on it.
* FragileSpeedster: a less than average defense at 5, a great 8 in speed, and average destroyer health ratings.
* HairDecorations: black hairband with a black cloth and a small cluster of purple jewels and a pair of red ribbons.
* HairIntakes: they're set more forward on her head than most examples.
* MagicalEye: her left eye can grant up to nine allies (not including herself) a 10% chance to land a critical hit that instantly adds 25% extra damage to any attack.
* OjouRinglets: what her HairIntakes turn into down towards the ends.
* ParasolOfPain: on top of looking stylish and matching her uniform's color scheme, it also serves as her radar peripheral station and, as her damaged CG reveals, can even launch torpedoes out from underneath it.
* PhenotypeStereotype: subverted - she's got the blonde hair, but instead of blue eyes, they're red.
* PurpleIsPowerful: she's clad head to toe in purple.
* {{Shoutout}}: has three prominent ones.
** her Silent Step ability is one to Caveira's ability
only product of the same name from VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege.
*** her Silent Step is also a double-shoutout to the Amethyst Incident in RealLife, in which she had had to escape control
second phase of the People's Liberation Army by sailing some 167 km and bypassing Chinese ships and coastal defenses flawlessly.
** one of her passive abilities, Amethyst, is one to an item of the same name in VideoGame/EiyuuSenkiTheWorldConquest that gives a 10% chance to land a critical hit.
** Simon, the name of her magical left eye, is also another RealLife shoutout to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_(cat) Simon]], the cat who served aboard her from 1948-1949 as the unofficial ship mascot.
FLEET Project.

* StealthExpert: she possesses a special ability similar to Sendai's noise-suppression system that also silences Amethyst's movement noises, though instead of completely getting rid of them, it simply makes her movement noises extremely hard to hear, effectively making her silent.
* SupportPartyMember: as seen in the entries above, Amethyst's abilities center on giving her allies critical hit chances to boost their damage, albeit rather unreliably.

!Bulldog

English destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BadassLongcoat: it makes her look like a Cambridge professor, according to her in-story description.
* DistinguishedGentlemansPipe: smokes a short, stubby pipe. She is most definitely not a gentleman, however.
* DoubleWeapon: the switchblades she uses have blades on both ends, one white and one black.
* DualWielding: she uses two double-bladed switchblades as her melee weapons.
* GenderBlenderName: certainly most English girls wouldn't be named Bulldog.
* MinidressOfPower: except it's not a minidress, but a very big sweater.
* NiceHat: wears a small black bowler hat that looks like it could fall off her head at any moment.
* PhenotypeStereotype: subverted, she's got the blonde hair, but instead of blue eyes, she's got steely gray ones.
* WearingAFlagOnYourHead: but instead of on her head, she wears the Union Jack as an oversized sweater. The sweater is so big that it hides whatever she's wearing on her lower body - probably short-shorts.

!Glowworm

English destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AlternateUniverse: Glowworm's image of being a cute private school student who looks like she goes to Hogwarts thanks to her black wand that glows green gets butchered into one of being a ship girl who throws semtex grenades around and fights like hell.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: Glowworm's semtex grenades will ignore armor and deal triple shield damage against anything they affect.
* {{Determinator}}: her endurance stat is a staggering 9. Her Will and CDR ratings are no slouches either, at 60% each.
** her passive ability, Slugger, is similar to Kawakaze's, but hers gives Glowworm +6 to all combat stats and a passive -20% reduction to all forms of incoming damage while she is fighting while outnumbered or when fighting a ship type stronger than herself.
* HairDecorations: has two black radar-like hair ornaments that tie up her twintails for her.
* InstantBandages: in her damaged CG, she's got a bandaid on her head. Teeters on PointlessBandaid territory because she's seen to be hit around her body, not her head.
* MinidressOfPower: this time, Glowworm's got a private school student's uniform on her, and the top sweater is enough to clear her waist...barely, as usual.
* PhenotypeStereotype: classic blonde and blue eyes, though her eyes seem to have pink center pupils.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: wears a relatively thick red and black one.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: her explosive traits revolve around her ability to make semtex grenades with a small metal pouch that she carries with her at all times, and these semtex grenades she can set off remotely with the wand that she carries with her.
* TwinTails: blonde ones.
* YouAreNumber6: subverted, Glowworm doesn't go by her pennant number, H-92, but she does have it stamped on her right thigh, as her CG's reveal.

!Jackal

English destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* ArmorPiercingAttack: Prydwen, Jackal's unique ability, disables enemy shields in a 25 meter radius from Jackal when activated.
* CloseRangeCombatant: being a destroyer, having talons capable of tearing through Smartsteel, ranking a 10 in speed and an 8 in endurance, and a default 50% skill in unarmed and small melee combat make her this.
* CultureEqualsCostume: subverted. She wears a standard J-Class ship girl uniform (or at least she shares one with Javelin, another J-Class destroyer), but over it she wears a shawl over her left shoulder and traditional gold jewelry on her ears, hair, and scalp. And in her damaged CG, her uniform gets torn to reveal her underclothes, and instead of a bra, she wears a black and gold sash.
* {{Determinator}}: a big 8 in endurance and 70% in both Will and CDR. She needs these, considering her defense doesn't exist.
* DumbMuscle: fights like an animal but only has a 3 in intelligence, but then again it could be the same case as Yuudachi's.
* EyeColourChange: as a result of getting damaged, her eyes turn from gray to gold in her damaged CG.
* FlamingHair: subverted, the end of her hair can be seen ignited on fire in her damaged CG but her entire hair isn't on fire. It's also somewhat difficult to tell whether or not it's her own hair igniting itself on fire, or if that fire was caused by the shells she took from battle to get damaged.
* FragileSpeedster: a huge 10 in speed, but a pitiful defense rating of 0, only 50 armor points, and 700 hit points. These are practically submarine-tier health ratings.
* GlassCannon: a whopping 10 in attack, but a nonexistent defense rating of 0.
* GlowingEyes: in her damaged CG, her left eye begin to burn with a topaz haze.
* HairDecorations: wears gold jewelry to accentuate her traditional image.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: she wears her torpedo launchers over her wrists as wrist braces, and on them are triple-pronged gold claws.
* LittleBitBeastly: she's got jackal ears.
** Why does her Prydwen ability only cover such a short area of effect? [[GeniusBonus Jackals typically hunt and scavenge either alone or in pairs - meaning that in a typical ship girl fleet formation, if anyone is within 10 meters of Jackal, it's most likely because they are specifically teaming with Jackal to attack their enemy.]] In addition, her Comradeship is only ranked at 20%.
* MeaningfulName: Jackal slightly resembles a jackal with the ears and claws but more importantly fights like one.
* MinidressOfPower: the uniform that the J-Class destroyers share have pleated blue skirts that barely clear their waists.
* MulticoloredHair: she normally has pale tan and black hair, patterned in a similar manner to a jackal's coat of fur.
* PowerDyesYourHair: in her damaged CG, her hair goes from pale tan and black to all black.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: in her damaged CG, she gains long black hair, a sign of her beastliness emerging in her damaged state.
* {{Shoutout}}: her special ability is Prydwen, which is one to Palamedes' ability of the same name in VideoGame/EiyuuSenkiTheWorldConquest.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: in her damaged CG.
* SupportPartyMember: her Prydwen ability grants all allies (including herself) a temporary 1000 health buffer within 10 meters.
* YouAreNumber6: subverted, Jackal doesn't go by her pennant number, F-22, but she does have it stamped on her left thigh, as her damaged CG reveals.

!Javelin

English destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AlternateUniverse: the torpedo-launching mast that she carries in her CG's ingame is instead replaced by an actual javelin that not only launches torpedoes but also serves as the medium for Javelin to execute her most powerful attack, Clarent.
* ArmorPiercingAttack: her javelin is able to pierce enemy shields and bypasses 80% of enemy's shields. It also even has a 5% chance to completely shatter an enemy's shields with an attack. Her Clarent attack also goes through and destroys shields.
* TheBerserker: her passive ability, Mutiny, allows her to enter a frenzied state if she drops below 50% health, but when she enters this state, Javelin will not listen to any order issued to her and will attack any enemy at will.
* BladeOnAStick / ImprobableWeaponUser: she uses a mechanical javelin called the L-61 that also serves as a torpedo launcher (and can deploy a massive beam cannon). Of note, Javelin in Warship Girls does carry a mast with loaded torpedoes on its end, but it is not a bladed weapon itself.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: subverted; like Kaga, Javelin is saved before her own Abyssalization conversion was completed, so like Kaga, she now exists as a partial-Abyssal ship girl. But while she's still in her right mind, she can and will definitely get crazy if it comes down to it.
* CriticalHit: one of the only examples in the story's mechanics to have an explicitly mentioned critical hit mechanic, Javelin's Clarent attack has a set 10% chance to score a critical hit on an enemy that's hit by it that forces them to take 50% extra damage than usual.
* DeadlyUpgrade: has three ways to put her instantly at death's door, so to speak:
** her Mutiny passive ability gives her +5 speed, +25% agility and reflex, and +50% attack speed, but not only will she be unable to follow any orders given to her, but she will automatically gain +50% fatigue and +10% insanity once Mutiny wears off.
** when she gets Abyssalized, her Javelin, also Abyssalized, now powers up her Clarent ultimate ability by instantly doubling the amount of damage it deals at will, but in exchange, Javelin gets instantly put on 99% fatigue ''and'' insanity.
** Javelin also has the same Abyssalization upgrade drawbacks as Shoukaku and Kaga.
* DeathRay: her Clarent ability. It will explicitly evaporate any enemy that cannot withstand its damage output, and given what it's based off of, it more or less looks like a giant frickin' laser beam when deployed.
* EmpathicWeapon: because Javelin gets Abyssalized too like Kaga and Shoukaku during the fleet's operations in Germany, her javelin also gets Abyssalized and is implied to behave similarly to Kaga's and Shoukaku's Abyssal sniper rifles.
* HairDecorations: she wears a white and red headband.
* HavingABlast: she has access to amphibious torpedoes, and her Abyssalized L-61 Javelin can even produce explosions of its own without torpedoes.
* HeroicSacrifice: during the fleet's operations in Germany, when a detachment of British ship girls including Javelin gets sent down to the northern coast of Germany to investigate Abyssal activities, Javelin, hit by a torpedo, stays behind so that everyone else can escape, using her Clarent attack to delay the Abyssals but ends up getting captured herself.
* HighClassGlass: she wears a gold-lens monocle over her left eye, but it's a targeting monocle that assists her in combat acquiring targets for her weapons.
* JackOfAllStats: her combat starts are all either average or above average at 6's and 7's, except for her intelligence, which is a humble 4.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: Javelin is one of the only ship girls in the story who uses amphibious torpedoes that can travel either through the air or through the water. U-511 is the only other one who uses torpedoes like these.
* MinidressOfPower: the uniform that the J-Class destroyers share have pleated blue skirts that barely clear their waists. In Javelin's case, you can even see her pennant number stamped on her thigh even without resorting to looking at her damaged CG because that's how short her dress is.
* MulticoloredHair: has gradient pink-to-peach hair.
* ParryingBullets: her javelin allows her to parry incoming attacks while taking none of the temporary health damage that normal parries for everyone else will incur.
* PhenotypeStereotype: ''technically'' she's a blonde, and with blue eyes to boot.
* {{Shoutout}}:
** her Mutiny passive ability is one to her RealLife counterpart that had a mutiny aboard her that took place on October 17, 1945.
** her Clarent ability is one to Mordred's Hero Skill of the same name as seen in VideoGame/EiyuuSenkiTheWorldConquest.
* YouAreNumber6: subverted, Javelin doesn't go by her pennant number, G-61, but she does have it stamped on her left thigh, as her CG's reveal.

!Juno

English destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* {{Charisma}}: her two best stats are 8's in both negotiation and charisma.
* CoolCrown: wears a tiara decorated by white flowers and adorned with a clear veil.
* CustomUniform: compared to her sister Jackal, anyway. Juno's uniform has flower petal-like coattails and a clear coattail behind her that all hang from her waist.
* FlowerInHerHair: her tiara is decorated with white flowers on both sides.
* FragileSpeedster: not to the extent that her sister Jackal is, but having a mere 3 in defense, an above-average 7 in speed, and slightly less-than-average armor and health qualifies.
* HairDecorations: wears a clear veil on her head held up by a gold tiara.
* LifeDrain: her unique ability, Cat's Cradle, allows her to lifesteal to heal herself back up to 50% health when she attacks an enemy with a melee attack. Considering that she can only use this ability when her health drops down below 30% health, this is a welcome side effect for her.
* MinidressOfPower: the uniform that the J-Class destroyers share have pleated blue skirts that barely clear their waists.
* OneHitKill: her unique ability also allows her to one-shot a single enemy target.
* YouAreNumber6: subverted, Juno doesn't go by her pennant number, F-46, but she does have it stamped on her left thigh, as her damaged CG reveals, much like her sisters Jackal and Javelin.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: has short light lavender hair.

!Nubian

English destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BareYourMidriff: as a result of her traditional attire.
* CultureEqualsCostume: wears the traditional attire of the Nubian people in Africa.
* HairDecorations: wears a small gold laurel on her head and long gold earrings that peek out from underneath her shemagh.
* NiceHat: not a hat, per se, but she wears a red shemagh.
* StatuesqueStunner: she's described to be very tall for a destroyer, rivaling the heavy cruisers or capital ship girls in terms of height.
* TribalFacePaint: not too much, but she does have several stripes of red and blue paint underneath the corners of her eyes on her cheeks.

!Rawalpindi

English Armed Merchant Cruiser as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BareYourMidriff: her attire has her doing this.
* BraidsOfAction: has a single large briad that wraps over her head and hangs at her side like a ponytail.
* CultureEqualsCostume: she dresses like a traditional Indian woman, with a few modifications, of course.
* FlowerInHerHair: has a morning glory or lily in her hair.

!Roberts

English monitor as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BackpackCannon: how she carries her huge, oversized cannons - which differs from her canon self, who is depicted riding her gun instead.
* CoolHat: wears an olive green beret.
* DeathRay: her ultimate ability, Rhongomiant, fires a huge laser that damages everything in its path. She shares this ability with her sister Abercrombie.
* GreenEyes: like her sister Abercrombie.
* HairDecorations: wears two green side ribbons and a pair of metal cat ears of sorts that may serve as her radar.
* JokeCharacter: subverted. Her stats are very lackluster, but what makes her valuable is the ultimate ability that she possesses.
* {{Shoutout}}: her Rhongomiant ultimate ability is one to Kay's hero skill in VideoGame/EiyuuSenkiTheWorldConquest.
* StatusAilment: her Rhongomiant attack inflicts several status debuffs to anyone who survives the attack, such as less effective armor, more slowly regenerating shields, and stun.

!Arethusa

* BadassInANiceSuit: she comes dressed as a prim and proper British naval officer - save for the minidress.
* CoolHat: wears a naval officer's peaked hat.
* EscortMission: Arethusa's unique passive ability gives her temporary stat increases whenever she is escorting another ally. As an added bonus, her ally also gets an armor and health buffer for her escort duration.
* IcyBlueEyes: certainly matches her white hair.
* MasterOfAll: ''all'' of her stats except for her cost are 8's, making her a ''very'' powerful light cruiser right off the bat on stats alone.
* MinidressOfPower: white pleated skirt with red lines.
* {{Shoutout}}: she's based on an original concept design by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1876510?tags=hms_arethusa_(26) dakku (ogitsune)'s HMS Arethusa.]]
* SupportPartyMember: her second passive ability allows her to issue orders to her allies if they are either regular soldiers or ship girls who are beneath her in ship type tier. When she does this, all allies under her command gain +10% all combat attributes and a +1 to a single random combat stat.

!Belfast

English light cruiser as depicted in Victory Belles.

* CultureEqualsCostume: she is wearing what appears to be traditional English attire.
* GreenEyes: apparently the British have a thing for green eyes.
* HairDecorations: she's got what look like a pair of green sea stars on the right side of her scalp on her hair.
* OfCorsetsSexy: she wears a small leather corset around her abdomen and torso.
* ZettaiRyouiki: perhaps a grade B, but that's going off her [[http://i.imgur.com/JWlq3NY.jpg CG]]. It's possible that, if viewing her normally, her blue skirt is long enough to hide the portions of thighs above her green boots. (And would boots even count in place of thigh-highs?)

!Exeter

* BadassInANiceSuit: she shares the same uniform as Arethusa, which is unusual because normally, only ship sisters share uniforms.
* CoolHat: wears a naval officer's peaked hat, like Arethusa.
* {{Determinator}}: she is ''the'' {{Determinator}} in the entire British fleet. 80% Will, a maxed out CDR, and the cherry on top, a colossal 15 in endurance. No one can surpass Exeter in terms of raw endurance.
* GreenEyes: apple-green ones.
* MightyGlacier: subverted, she does have a 9 in defense, but she's also got an 8 in speed, so she's not necessarily slow.
* MinidressOfPower: white pleated skirt with red lines, same as Arethusa.
* NecessaryDrawback: in exchange for her immense stats and health, Exeter suffers the same drawback as Amagi does in which she has a very measly 200 armor points, which is destroyer-tier armor on a ''heavy cruiser''.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: presumed averted, as both Exeters appear
AccidentalInnuendo: in chapter 341 as part of Queen Sarah's consort during the Transatlantic Alliance conference.
* PhenotypeStereotype: subverted; she
185: "'Vatista has darker blonde hair watched videos. [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything She will make]] [[InnocentInnuendo you feel good.]]'"
* BigDamnHeroes: pulls this off twice to save Damon
and green eyes instead of blue.
* {{Shoutout}}: she's based on an original concept design by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1668605 dakku (ogitsune)'s HMS Exeter.]]
** her whole Trigger passive condition is one to her sinking in RealLife.
* SituationalDamageAttack: Exeter's passive ability makes her situationally very dangerous to enemy battleships by giving her critical hit chances and much more lethal headshot bonuses against them.
* TraumaButton: as a result of her RealLife sinking
Murasame at the hands of the Imperial Japanese Navy, Exeter is very reluctant to serve alongside Japanese ship girls and suffers -2 all stats if she must. If she deploys specifically two separate intervals.
* BlastingItOutOfTheirHands:
with any of the ship girls whose RealLife counterparts were involved in the battle in which she'd sunk, Exeter loses another -1 all stats. In order to prevent any stat loss, her "Gundance" attack.
* ContinuityCameo:
she ''must'' deploy with either Ikazuchi or Inazuma.

!Exeter

English heavy cruiser as seen in Victory Belles.

* GreenEyes: she has emerald green eyes. Strangely enough, the existing Exeter
is also has green eyes...
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: presumed averted, as both Exeters appear in chapter 341 as part of Queen Sarah's consort during
the Transatlantic Alliance conference.
* RoyalRapier: appears to be more of a fencing-type rapier.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: green ones to match the rest of her green uniform.

!Conqueror

* {{Alcohol}}: her favorite kind is scotch.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* TheMusketeer: All Orion-class battleships and Erin carry and use sabres in conjunction with infantry firearms and their naval cannons, contrasting with [[spoiler:the Warspites]] who don't use guns in infantry actions.
* NoodleIncident: along with Kongou, she and Thunderer were present at one bloody incident in which the Re-Class apparently painted a town red because one of the Inner Circle personnel in the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer refused to give her some fuel.
* RoyalRapier: not a rapier, per se, but a cavalry officer's sabre made of Smartsteel capable of ParryingBullets and cannon shells, to the extent that they can cut incoming cannon shells in half.
* {{Shoutout}}: the basic
main character designs of the entire Orion-Class are taken from those created by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1742569?tags=hms_orion_%28siirakannu%29 siirakannu]].
** mimics the Warden's execution from VideoGame/ForHonor in chapter 301.

!Erin

* {{BFG}}: uses a light machine gun, an L86-A2 Light Support Weapon, as her primary firearm for land engagements.
* BoomHeadshot: executes an enemy He-Class by slicing half of its head off with her sabre.
* DeadpanSnarker: in chapter 300, she makes two, an all-time record: one at Wakamiya and one at Warspite.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* ImmuneToFlinching: Erin's passive ability Hardline prevents her from ever flinching in battle.
* IneffectualLoner: Damon finds out that she's very much so this when he talks to her at New Chicago. Erin explains that this is because historically, she felt isolated as a warship and didn't feel like she ever really interacted with other ships that much.
* LikeCannotCutLike: averted in Erin's case: her passive ability Hardline specifically gives her an additional 25% damage buff when attacking enemy battleships.
* MightyGlacier: slightly zig-zagged by her entry in the stat sheet: she has 12s in attack, defense, and intelligence and a 10 in endurance, but a 1 in speed. At the same time, while she has the highest armor point rating in the whole fleet at 3000, she only has an abysmal 1000 hit points, the lowest for any battleship in the fleet. There are destroyers in the fleet who have more hit points than she does.
* TheMusketeer: uses guns and a Smartsteel rapier, just like the Orion-Class.
* TheQuietOne: Doesn't speak much.
* RoyalRapier: uses a Smartsteel sabre that the Orion-Class also use.
* SmallGirlBigGun: Erin is explicitly stated to be the shortest battleship among the British battleships who join Damon's fleet after Operation London, yet there's no reason why her ship guns are any smaller than her peers', plus she even uses a machine gun as her primary firearm while most of the Orion-Class use L85-A2 assault rifles.
* {{Shoutout}}: like the Orion-Class, the basic character design Erin is taken from that created by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1763603?tags=hms_erin_(siirakannu) siirakannu]].
* StatusBuffDispel: Erin has an inversion of this with her passive ability Hardline, which makes her completely immune to all enemy debuffs.

!Monarch

* {{Alcohol}}: her favorite kind is whiskey.
* DeadpanSnarker: frequently makes quips and witty remarks to those around her based off what she happens to hear. It helps break her usual TheStoic mold.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* TheMusketeer: All Orion-class battleships and Erin carry and use sabres in conjunction with infantry firearms and their naval cannons, contrasting with [[spoiler:the Warspites]] who don't use guns in infantry actions.
* RoyalRapier: not a rapier, per se, but a cavalry officer's sabre made of Smartsteel capable of ParryingBullets and cannon shells, to the extent that they can cut incoming cannon shells in half.
* {{Shoutout}}: the basic character designs of the entire Orion-Class are taken from those created by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1742569?tags=hms_orion_%28siirakannu%29 siirakannu]].
** When she describes the Abyssals:
--> Monarch: [[Film/ThreeHundred "By nature, they fight in the shade - or, in this case, from the depths of the oceans below."]]
* TheStoic: always professional and level-headed. Except for when she trolls people.
* {{Troll}}: chapter 185 firmly establishes her as this, as she loves to tease the hell out of her older sister Orion and encourages Damon's own trolling of Orion when ginger ale gets involved.

!Orion

* {{Alcohol}}: her favorite kind is rum.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: is subjected to one when Damon orders her NOT to drink any ginger ale when his cousin delivers a fresh, cold case of the beverage to them. Her response?
--> Orion: "You are utterly cruel! Did your country not compose its founding documents to include the outlawing of cruel and unusual punishments?!"
* DeadpanSnarker: makes a few quips of her own from time to time.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* HiddenDepths: while she and her sisters all have taken a good liking to ginger ale during their stay in Chicago, Orion loves the stuff to the point where her sisters tease her over it whenever they get the chance.
* LampshadeHanging:
** points out the absurdity of the giant lindworm controlled by [[spoiler:the Abyssal]].
** also wonders why outdated World War I battleships like herself and her sisters would be chosen as ship girl candidates and constructed. This being said, the introduction of H.M.S. Warspite, both canon and in-story, makes this lampshade hanging quite amusing.
* TheMusketeer: All Orion-class battleships and Erin carry and use sabres in conjunction with infantry firearms and their naval cannons, contrasting with [[spoiler:the Warspites]] who don't use guns in infantry actions.
* NoodleIncident: not one that she herself was involved in, but her sisters Conqueror and Thunderer were, along with Kongou: the Re-Class apparently painted a town red because one of the Inner Circle personnel in the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer refused to give her some fuel.
* RoyalRapier: not a rapier, per se, but a cavalry officer's sabre made of Smartsteel capable of ParryingBullets and cannon shells, to the extent that they can cut incoming cannon shells in half.
* {{Shoutout}}: the basic character designs of the entire Orion-Class are taken from those created by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1742569?tags=hms_orion_%28siirakannu%29 siirakannu]].

!Prince Of Wales

* AllohistoricalAllusion: in light of recent events in-story, Prince of Wales wonders why England didn't leave the European Union sooner.
* {{Determinator}}: while her actual endurance stat is only above average at 7, her unique passive ability called "Adrenaline" gives her extra bonus stats and restores a chunk of her armor and health every five minutes that she is in combat, and these bonuses stack up to an hour's worth of fighting.
* GenderBlenderName: while many of the English ship girls have cases of this, Prince of Wales takes the cake because, well, she's being called a ''prince''.
* IcyBlueEyes: perhaps because of her rather cold demeanor.
* InterserviceRivalry: she seems to have an aversion to the army, going off a comment she's made about why ship girls should bother using infantry weapons when they have big ship guns that suit them much better.
* LadyOfWar: looks like a fancy British noblewoman.
* {{Shoutout}}: she is taken from an original design concept by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/409577 mamo williams]] (warning: link is NSFW!).
* SituationalDamageAttack: she has a special Revenge passive ability that allows her to deal extra damage against carriers and planes.
* SmallGirlBigGun: she's described to be even shorter than Erin, perhaps being the shortest battleship girl in the story.
* TheSmartGuy: an impressive 13 in intelligence.

!Renown

* {{Determinator}}: a big 9 in endurance.
* HairDecorations: has a red hairband that ties up her hair into a bun.
* LadyOfWar: dresses nicely and is one of the strongest battleships in the story in terms of raw health and defense.
* LightningBruiser: she's a battlecruiser and has a speed rating of 11, along with a 70% in Reflex and 60% in Agility.. She's also got a 10 in defense to make her all the more dangerous.
* LikeCannotCutLike: averted for Renown as well: she deals 15% extra damage against other battleships.
* PrimAndProperBun: to accentuate her image as a LadyOfWar.
* {{Shoutout}}: her design is based off [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/52409?tags=hms_renown an original concept by nano.]]
** this is due to the fact that the author had put Renown and Repulse into the story before their VideoGame/WarshipGirls versions were released.
* SituationalDamageAttack: Renown's first attack when ambushing an enemy will deal +300% extra damage thanks to her Prowler passive ability.
* StoneWall: is this with 2100 armor and 2000 health, reinforced with 10 defense and 9 endurance. She also happens to have 11 speed, but that's just a cherry on top.
* VeteranUnit: the story classifies her as this with the passive condition "World Warrior" that gives her several major combat buffs.

!Repulse

* {{Determinator}}: an even bigger 11 in endurance.
* HighSpeedMissileDodge: her Slip Step passive ability allows her to physically see incoming torpedoes so that she can dodge them more easily. And even if she does get hit by them, she's got an innate 30% chance to simply disarm them the moment they touch her.
* LadyOfWar: just like her sister Renown; they basically have the same "uniform".
* LightningBruiser: she's a battlecruiser and has a speed rating of 11, along with a 70% in Reflex and 80% in Agility.. She's also got a 10 in defense to make her all the more dangerous.
* LikeCannotCutLike: averted for Renown as well: she deals 15% extra damage against other battleships.
* SituationalDamageAttack: Repulse's first attack when ambushing an enemy will deal +300% extra damage thanks to her Prowler passive ability.
** her Revenge passive ability also gives her extra damage against enemy planes and against enemy carriers.
* StoneWall: is this with 2100 armor and 2000 health, reinforced with 10 defense and 11 endurance. She also happens to have 11 speed, but that's just a cherry on top.
* VeteranUnit: the story classifies her as this with the passive condition "World Warrior" that gives her several major combat buffs.

!Rodney

* BraidsOfAction: has a long braided ponytail.
* {{Charisma}}: a 9 in charisma. Having an 8 in negotiation also helps.
* {{Determinator}}: a huge 17 in endurance alone. Also noteworthy is the fact that she is one of the only few characters in the story to have a ''negative'' insanity rating at -30%.
* GreenEyes: faded green eyes.
* LadyOfWar: in a professional sense; she's described to appear like a professor from an English college.
* MightyGlacier: 11 in defense and a very comfortable 3000 hit point pool, but a 3 in speed.
* MinidressOfPower: a plain pleated and checkered skirt. Granted, it looks much more modest than the skirts most other girls wear, if they do.
* {{Shoutout}}: she is taken from an original concept design by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1851394 yorktown cv-5.]]
* VeteranUnit: cemented as a passive ability that grants her several strong status buffs and immunities and an EXP boost for allies operating with her.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!Thunderer

* {{Alcohol}}: her favorite kind is tequila.
* AnalogyBackfire: when she makes her BadassBoast of "Our torpedoes will blot out the sun", she realizes that they're now operating at night, so her metaphor doesn't really work anymore. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Besides, how are torpedoes supposed to blot out the sun while underwater?]]
* {{BFG}}: uses a light machine gun, an L86-A2 Light Support Weapon, as her primary firearm for land engagements.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* TheMusketeer: All Orion-class battleships and Erin carry and use sabres in conjunction with infantry firearms and their naval cannons, contrasting with [[spoiler:the Warspites]] who don't use guns in infantry actions.
* NoodleIncident: along with Kongou, she and Conqueror were present at one bloody incident in which the Re-Class apparently painted a town red because one of the Inner Circle personnel in the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer refused to give her some fuel.
* RoyalRapier: not a rapier, per se, but a cavalry officer's sabre made of Smartsteel capable of ParryingBullets and cannon shells, to the extent that they can cut incoming cannon shells in half.
* {{Shoutout}}: the basic character designs of the entire Orion-Class are taken from those created by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1742569?tags=hms_orion_%28siirakannu%29 siirakannu]].
** given the staggering amount of torpedo power the Combined Fleet has, with even the battleships equipped with double torpedo launcher modules, this is what she says:
--> Thunderer: [[Film/ThreeHundred "Our torpedoes will blot out the sun!"]]
** mimics the Orochi's execution from VideoGame/ForHonor in chapter 301.

!Tiger

* {{Determinator}}: an 8 in endurance and one of the few ship girls in the story to have a negative insanity rating at -10%.
* GreenEyes: candy green ones, to be precise.
* LadyOfWar: like Prince of Wales, she looks like an English noblewoman with guns on her back.
* LittleBitBeastly: she has visible canine fangs, and she wears a tiger-stripe shawl to go with the rest of her attire.
* {{Shoutout}}: she is taken from an original design concept by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/937663 flak (aaa's room)]], ''three years'' before Kantai Collection was even released.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: matches her dress, too.

!Warspite (''VideoGame/WarshipGirls'' version)

The ship girl incarnation of the H.M.S. ''Warspite'', pennant number 03.

* ElegantWeaponForAMoreCivilizedAge: while not explicitly mentioned on her part, seeing that she never uses a gun for the entirety of the assault on Whiskey Hotel, it's safe to assume that she shares this view with the other Warspite, in contrast with her contemporaries the Orions who have no such qualms.
* InSeriesNickname: goes by "Winifred" whenever she's together with the other Warspite for the sake of ease of differentiation.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted, both Warspites are introduced ''together'' in the story, even, in chapter 249 at the start of the final attack on Whiskey Hotel.
* {{Ojou}}: carries herself with the air
of an elegant, high-class English noblewoman, though she's definitely a level haughtier than the other Warspite.
* ParryingBullets: how she's compelled to fight when attacked by gunfighters.
* RoyalRapier: a {{Shoutout}} to Lucina's sword from VideoGame/FireEmblem and shares the same name, the Parallel Falchion.

!Warspite (canon version)

* AffectionateNickname: gets called "Wicky" by Iris, based off her first nickname, Wikolia.
* AltumVidetur: a very small example: she utters the phrase "in terra", which means "on land" when she's talking about her decision to remain faithful to her sword as her only weapon during land engagements. Warspite is the only person in the entire story who's included even a smidgen of Latin in her speech, possibly as an indication of her gentlewomanly British persona.
* CallingYourAttacks: pretty much does this for every special attack she performs with her Falchion.
* CoolChair: averted from the game - Warspite has no such chair in this story, as she's seen standing whenever she fights.
* TabletopGame/{{Chess}}: is seen playing chess with Iowa in chapter 268.
* DontMakeMeDestroyYou: issues Iowa (canon) one of these after the two Warspites defeat her together, which Iowa is all too glad to accept.
* ElegantWeaponForAMoreCivilizedAge: explicitly states in chapter 249 when Damon offers to give her his submachine gun for her to use that she feels that using guns for her is "unseemly", in contrast with her contemporaries the Orions who have no such qualms.
* FlashStep: like Wisconsin, she uses this to be mobile with her sword.
* GuestFighter: in-universe. The British ship girls are not ''truly'' loyal to the fleet and have only joined on because they wish to sail the world and see all that the world has to offer, and being a part of the Combined Fleet, which regularly travels abroad for missions all over the world, is the easiest and most fitting way to do so; they are even explicitly allowed to return to England in the case of homeland emergencies, when their assistance is sorely needed in case of a foreign invasion on English soil, for example.
* HiddenDepths: when she speaks with Damon in chapter 267, she reveals to him that her current fear with being a recent newcomer to the fleet is coping with possible feelings of homesickness as time goes on.
* InSeriesNickname: goes by "Wikolia" whenever she's together with the other Warspite for the sake of ease of differentiation.
* LadyOfWar: even more so than her ingame rendition: not only does she serve in a long-range battleship bombardment against the White House, but she's a talented swordwoman [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen who refuses to stoop to the level of using firearms in land combat]] and almost matches Iowa's levels of MinnesotaNice.
* LightningBruiser: even though she's very much so a battleship and can run through bullets like they're [[{{Pun}} BB pellets,]] she's also very quick and agile, as she needs to be in order to fight with just her sword as her personal creed dictates.
* LudicrousMeleeAccuracy: uses her Tipper attack to land a DiagonalCut onto Iowa (canon) during their fight and slashes her down the chest, perfectly in between her breasts. Since Iowa (canon) has an impressive, let's say, upper hull armor, and given the size of Warspite's Falchion, assuming it's more or less the same as the one [[VideoGame/FireEmblem it's referencing]], it's a mystery how Warspite even lands a hit like that.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted, both Warspites are introduced ''together'' in the story, even, in chapter 249 at the start of the final attack on Whiskey Hotel.
* RepressedMemories: the thought of her wartime crews who served aboard her during her times of active warship service in both world wars brings Warspite to tears in chapter 267.
* RippedFromTheHeadlines: just barely a week after she was implemented ingame, like Graf Zeppelin before her, Warspite finds her way into this story as well.
* RoyalRapier: a {{Shoutout}} to Marth's sword from VideoGame/FireEmblem and shares the same name, the Falchion.
* {{Ojou}}: carries herself with the air of an elegant, high-class English noblewoman, and she seems to be considerably more polite than the other Warspite. Given her design as recently implemented in the game, this practically comes as no surprise.
* ParryingBullets: how she's compelled to fight when attacked by gunfighters.
* {{Shoutout}}: an obvious one for anyone who is into competitive [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Melee]]: Warspite (canon) executes an attack called Tipper and hits Iowa with the tip of her Falchion in a downwards slash down to the floor, sending Iowa flying and hitting a wall so hard she bounces off it, all references to Marth's forward smash attack ingame and his special Tipper mechanic that inflicts absurdly higher knockback than usual.
** she uses Marth's down-B counter in chapter 300 and his neutral aerial attack in chapter 301. She also uses Orie's Sacred Arrow and Divine Thrust attacks from VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth.
** also has one for Dudley from VideoGame/StreetFighterIV, as the one attack she employs during the assault on Whiskey Hotel that doesn't involve her sword is called the Corkscrew Cross, Dudley's Ultra II combo.
* StaffOfAuthority: averted from the game, like her Coronation Chair - Warspite in this story has not yet shown either her scepter or orb at all, as her only depicted piece of equipment is her Falchion.

!Ark Royal

English carrier as seen in Victory Belles.

* GreenEyes: she's stated to have candy green apple eyes.
* MinidressOfPower: her navy blue uniform serves as this.
* NiceHat: she wears something of a folded explorer's hat, complete with a large feather quill.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: even her uniform is all-blue.
* ZettaiRyouiki: in between Grade A and B.

!Illustrious

* ArcherArchetype: one of the few carriers in the story to actually wield a bow-type weapon.
* CoolHat: wears a Royal Navy officer's peaked hat.
* {{Determinator}}: an 8 in endurance.
* MinidressOfPower: a dark pleated one.
* PhenotypeStereotype: pale blonde hair and muddy blue eyes.
* RetroUpgrade: she uses modernized English longbows that come with an infrared laser pointing module, a sound suppression system to silence its shots, and an airstrike/artillery laser designator.
* {{Shoutout}}: she is taken from an original concept design by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1763867 fujibejifu.]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!Victorious

* ArcherArchetype: one of the few carriers in the story to actually wield a bow-type weapon.
* CoolHat: wears a Royal Navy officer's peaked hat.
* GirlishPigtails: has these to differentiate herself from her sister.
* MinidressOfPower: a dark pleated one.
* PhenotypeStereotype: pale blonde hair and muddy blue eyes.
* RetroUpgrade: she uses modernized English longbows that come with an infrared laser pointing module, a sound suppression system to silence its shots, and an airstrike/artillery laser designator.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A, like her sister.

!Swordfish

* HairDecorations: wears aviator goggles on her head and has a hair ornament that looks like a swordfish fin that keeps her hair in a ponytail. Wait, why aviator goggles...?
* IcyBlueEyes: perhaps to reflect her submarine nature.
* MinidressOfPower: short white pleated skirt with red lines.
* RoyalRapier: has one at her left side in a black sheath.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: wears a small brown one.
* {{Shoutout}}: Swordfish's design is taken from an original design concept by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1801076?tags=swordfish_(airplane) dakku (ogitsune)]]. Funnily enough, the original design is not for [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Swordfish_(61S) Swordfish the submarine]], but instead for the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairey_Swordfish bomber aircraft Swordfish.]]
** as usual, being a submarine means she's got Cloaking, one to VideoGame/StarCraft.
* TomboyishPonytail: probably necessary for her diving.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: has gradient blue-white hair from top to bottom.

[[folder:Germany]]

!Z-1 Leberecht Maass

* TheAce: much like the Shiratsuyu-Class of the Combined Fleet, the German destroyers have very high armor and health points and strong base stats in their entries in the stat sheet. They also have the highest level caps of any destroyer in the story thus introduced at 150.
* BadassBandolier: she carries a large bandolier of magazines for her HG-40 around her waist.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: Lebe uses a modernized WWII-era MP-40 submachine gun with a 40-round magazine.
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* GratuitousGerman: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* NecessaryDrawback: besides their Triggers, both Z-1 and Z-3 have a Cost rating of 3, as opposed to the usual 1 or 2 required by Japanese ship girls.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, the German ship girls only use a few German words sprinkled in their English speech.
* {{Shoutout}}: her primary firearm is the HG-40, a modernized MP-40, and it's one to the DLC weapon of the same name seen in VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to
earlier work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For Z-1, this comes in the form of taking double damage from airstrikes, a reference to the demise of her RealLife counterpart.

!Z-3 Max Schultz

* TheAce: much like the Shiratsuyu-Class of the Combined Fleet, the German destroyers have very high armor and health points and strong base stats in their entries in the stat sheet. They also have the highest level caps of any destroyer in the story thus introduced at 150.
* {{Determinator}}: a 9 in endurance.
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* GratuitousGerman: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* GunsAkimbo: she uses two [=MP7-A2=] submachine guns as her firearms of choice, each to shoot one-handed.
* NecessaryDrawback: besides their Triggers, both Z-1 and Z-3 have a Cost rating of 3, as opposed to the usual 1 or 2 required by Japanese ship girls.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, the German ship girls only use a few German words sprinkled in their English speech.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For Z-3, this comes in the form of taking double damage from naval mines and +25% from torpedoes.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike.
* UnorthodoxReload: Max wears a special utility belt that has two forward magazine ejection ports so that when she requires a reload for her [=MP7-A2=] submachine guns, all she needs to do is throw the spent magazines out, fit the bottoms of the mag receivers against the ejection ports of her belt at her sides, and let her belt reload her guns for her so that the only manual part of her reloading would be to load the first bullet. Just so that she doesn't have to go through this trouble, Max will ''always'' shoot her guns in such a way that she will always have the last bullet in each gun remaining in the chambers so that she won't have to load their chambers manually.

!Prinz Eugen

* BigSisterWorship: heavily subverted; she still calls Bismarck "schweister", or sister in German, but she's nowhere near the {{Fangirl}} that she is in canon.
* BloodKnight: subverted; she doesn't show any particular enthusiasm for fighting, but she shows no hesitation towards it either.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: Prinz Eugen uses a modernized STG-44 rechambered for the [=7.62x39mm=] round and is implied to have a top rail to take modern combat optics like an ACOG/RMR.
* GenkiGirl: subverted, there's no explicit mention of her acting this way during the few amounts of narration that do focus on her.
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, she only sprinkles a few German words into her English here and there.
* SupportPartyMember: her Field Marshal passive ability lets her give her allies faster lock-on, more damage against those particular locked-on targets, and temporary combat stats if they are fighting in front of her upwards of 500 meters.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For Prinz Eugen, this comes in the form of radiation phobia; she will refuse to deploy anywhere where there is a significant radiation presence, and this, too, is a reference to her RealLife counterpart's demise as a test target in Operation Crossroads.

!Bismarck

* TheAce: Bismarck can be considered a candidate for the strongest overall battleship in the story with 2000 armor points, 4000 health points, and 10's in all stats across the board, with the obvious exception of Cost, which is a 9, but seriously, who cares about that.
* {{BFG}}: her MG-42 deployable machine gun.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: she uses a modernized MG-42 as her primary firearm.
* BulletCatch: she catches a 120mm tank shell with her bare hand in chapter 149.
* {{Determinator}}: a big 10 in endurance.
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* GratuitousGerman: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* LightningBruiser: just look at her stats! She'd even count for MightyGlacier, too, if her speed wasn't also a 10. She's as tanky as Amagi, but with actual armor points to protect the health as well.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, the German ship girls only use a few German words sprinkled in their English speech.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For Bismarck, this comes in the form of taking additional damage from airstrikes and torpedoes, a reference to her RealLife counterpart that was crippled in an airstrike.

!Graf Zeppelin

* TheAce: her stats, armor and health points, and maximum level cap are all much stronger than the average carrier from the Combined Fleet.
* CardsOfPower: she keeps her canon design of using cards as her plane holders, but in this story, she no longer needs a flight deck to launch her planes and can simply deploy them by throwing the cards straight into the air, and the cards will turn into planes mid-flight.
** DeathDealer: Graf is also mentioned to be proficient in using these same cards as weapons, much like Damon used metal-studded playing cards as weapons during Operation Charlotte.
* ColdSniper: speaks little and carries an FN Ballista sniper rifle that's got her own uniform color scheme on it as a weapon skin. She does warm up significantly whenever she's around Akagi, though.
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* GratuitousGerman: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* LongRangeFighter: amongst the German ship girls, and with good reason, since she's a carrier.
* LukeIAmYourFather: she considers Akagi to be her mother due to their RealLife historical connections. Kaga doesn't seem like she enjoys that when she hears of it.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: she also has a unique way of launching planes like Wakamiya and Enterprise by throwing cards into the air and deploying her planes directly into combat.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, the German ship girls only use a few German words sprinkled in their English speech.
* RippedFromTheHeadlines: taken and put from the game into the story with due time after her implementation.
* ScopeSnipe: pulls one of these off in chapter 147.
* SempaiKohai: averted; Graf instead sees Akagi as her mother instead. This makes Kaga want to hunt down the father.
* {{Shoutout}}: her Ballista sniper rifle is one to the rifle of the same name featured in VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2.
* SupportPartyMember: her Count passive ability gives fellow friendly carriers buffs to their planes' stats.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For Graf, this comes in the forms of decreased combat performance when she herself loses HP, if she witnesses other carriers sink, or if something bad happens to Akagi.

!U-511

* TheAce: amongst submarine girls. Her stats, as are all German ship girls', are leaps and bounds better than any other submarine's, and her armor point, health point, and maximum level cap ratings are easily on par with a destroyer's.
* ColdSniper: more like soft-spoken, but one nonetheless.
* FightingYourFriend: [[spoiler:she gets called in by Blackwood to neutralize the American ship girls who go in to secure the DSM in Westminster, Virginia, so that Blackwood and his forces can capture them...[[FridgeLogic but then again, U-511 has never met these four and thus would never know that they were working with Damon.]]]]
* GermanicEfficiency: reinforced in the passive ability "German Engineering" that all German ship girls share, which allows all of them to have their fatigue and insanity gain rates reduced by 50%.
* PoirotSpeak: subverted, the German ship girls only use a few German words sprinkled in their English speech. U-511 may be the most frequent user of this, but that's probably only because she happens to have the most screen time in the story.
* {{Shoutout}}: while the other submarines only reference the Ghost's Cloaking ability, U-511 practically ''is'' a [[VideoGame/StarCraftI Ghost]]: on top her own personal Cloaking, she carries the C-10 Canister Rifle (which itself is a MythologyGag to the AlternateUniverse Fanfic/AmbiencePlatoonMoebiusFour storyline) that's capable of small arms fire and deploying Lockdown amphibious torpedoes. Several dialogue lines of hers are even taken straight from the Ghost's dialogue lines.
* TookALevelInBadass: all the German ship girls are down-to-Earth and all business. When they're assigned to fight with the Combined Fleet once they arrive in Germany to assist them in their conflict against the NDP, all the German ship girls get to work and fight alongside Japanese and British ship girls alike. U-511 especially takes the cake for this, if only for the fact that her role as a Ghost and the sheer utility of her Canister Rifle has her seeing a lot more diverse action than the rest of her fellow German ship girls do.
* TraumaButton: all German ship girls have some kind of passive debuff, perhaps as a NecessaryDrawback to prevent them from being overly superior stats-wise. For U-511, this comes in the form of suffering huge insanity penalties if she witnesses or comes to hear of another German ship girl sinking.

[[folder:United States]]

!Johnston

The ship girl incarnation of the U.S.S. ''Johnston'', DD-557.

* AffectionateNickname: both New Jersey and Haida call Johnston "Johnny", which, so far, she seems to accept or at least tolerate.
* AnAxeToGrind: not just one, mind you. She's described when she arrives at MAPS to join the fleet to be wearing an entire collection of them, including war hatchets, tomahawks, ''and'' combat axes. She takes this UpToEleven because she wears sets of them around her thighs like bandoliers.
* BackToBackBadasses: with Haida, naturally. In chapter 313, in particular, they demonstrate this.
* BadassBandolier: not for bullets, but for ''tomahawks.''
* BadassNative: built with a much darker skin tone than the more fair-skinned Japanese or American ship girls, comparable to that of Musashi's, to reflect the Cherokee and Creek heritage of her wartime captain, Lt. Commander Ernest Edwin Evans. She also makes her appearance fully geared for war, and among her personal arsenal is a collection of not combat knives, but ''war hatchets and tomahawks.''
** to further reinforce her Native American identity, in chapter 335, when Johnston uses her black electricity, she utters, "Anagalisgv", [[BilingualBonus the Cherokee word for "lightning"]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: at the end of chapter 266, the final segment depicts a short dialogue between two people, who are shortly joined by Eagle. Now that Haida and Johnston are introduced, those two people at the end of chapter 266 are none other than Haida and Johnston, judging by Haida's "eh" VerbalTic and Johnston's handling of a war hatchet.
* FriendlyEnemy: many of the Japanese warships Johnston faced during the Battle off Samar are indeed part of Damon's fleet, but the one who dares to approach her is none other than Kongou, who offers to show Johnston and Haida around the base. Funnily enough, Johnston doesn't recognize her when they meet in person, so Kongou has to remind her who she is (Kongou had shot Johnston with several shells but failed to sink her, because her armor-piercing shells, while they did cut Johnston's speed in half by passing through her engine room, failed to detonate on her armorless hull).
* GenderBlenderName: Johnston, and to an even greater extent, her nickname of Johnny. She doesn't seem to mind, though.
* MythologyGag: she first appeared over a year and a half prior to her introduction to this story in another Kantai Collection fanfic written
by the same author, a Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica fanfic titled [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11109362/11/One-Shot-Fleet "Firebirds 3".net/s/9991353/1/Caelicolae-Liberi-Assimilation Caelicolae Liberi: Assimilation]]. Judging by the AlternateUniverse nature of this story, it's very possible that she can be considered an AlternateUniverse version of herself from Caelicolae Liberi: Assimilation. To cement this, an older version of Jeannie from Caelicolae Liberi shows up in chapter 186, when she visits Damon's dreamworld, complete with references to the Madoka universe and the author's previous fanfic itself.
* CreepyChild: due to the genetic and bodily modifications done to her, she speaks like a computer program, though she'll talk normally (or as normal as she can) to make herself more understood.
* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: what happened to Jeannie when she was put through the second phase of the F.L.E.E.T. Project.
* DefrostingIceQueen: her time spent with her cousin Damon has done much to thaw the cold machinelike behavior and atmosphere with which Jeannie carries herself (or, more accurately, is built to carry herself).
* EarCleaning: she cleans Damon's ears with cotton swab picks in chapter 185.
* EnfantTerrible: invokes this during Operation Dualsight, when she approaches a group of Mexican soldiers to distract them while the rest of her team sets up to eliminate them. [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior She gets a fair portion of action herself.
]]
* OddFriendship: EveryonesBabySister: she seems to get along quite well with Haida, because they had been built and activated at the same time by Lukenstor. She denies seeing her as a friend, but she still hangs around her during the fleet's beach day.
* RedBaron: in-story: when she arrives, Murakumo reveals that Johnston's last stand
everyone in the war immortalized her even among them as a legendary destroyer who dared to do - fleet.
* GlassCannon: while Jeannie herself is capable of great combat prowess
and did - the impossible. This is a reference to the fact that Johnston's survivors witnessed several Japanese officers paying their respects to Johnston as navitasium-based powers, she sank by saluting. Though, the sudden and unexpected introduction of Johnston to the fleet cause a fair bit of awkwardness, herself cannot take much damage at all, as the Japanese ship girls could never have predicted Johnston being reincarnated again as a ship girl like themselves.
* ShockAndAwe: Johnston demonstrates her elemental power, black lightning,
demonstrated in chapter 335 292, when she gets shot by executing two Abyssal cruisers by holding them by their necks Sandman's double-barreled shotgun. This being said, it could be due to Sandman using special ammunition for his shotgun.
* GunsAkimbo: Uses a pair of subcompact Glock 26s that can fit her small hands.
* {{Handguns}}: because of her age
and electrocuting them.
* {{Shoutout}}:
small hands, Jeannie is restricted to using only sub-compact guns that are small enough for her uniform to hold properly; as such, she starts off using Glock 26's, then transitions to Glock 43's by the time of Operation Sandblast.
* HeroicAlbino: she
is based on [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1680610?tags=uss_johnston_(dd-557) u-tan (timerush90)'s Johnston design.born one due to complications of irradiation at birth, though due to her CreepyChild tendencies, she needs a little getting used to before she can be firmly cemented as heroic.
* {{Homage}}: Jeannie's dreamworld when she hacks into Damon's is called "Silva Gelida". This is Latin for [[VideoGame/{{CallOfDutyBlackOps3}} "The Frozen Forest".
]]
* TheStoic: She hasn't cracked HiddenDepths: it's revealed that she actually had a single smile ever since joining dreamworld of her own much like Damon's in the fleet, past, but she lost access to it after her involvement in the F.L.E.E.T. 2 Project. Even still, she's able to gain access to Damon's dreamworld through a mysterious process that she calls "Dreamhacking".
* JackOfAllTrades: is said to be able to equip the ship guns of any ship type in the fleet. Demonstrates this by equipping a battleship-caliber gun
and walking around with it.
* LittleMissBadass: due to her time as a F.L.E.E.T. 2 Project prototype,
she seems dead serious is essentially a ship girl in her own right, with all the time. [[ThinkNothingOfIt She also shoots down the praise that Haida powers of one and New Jersey give]] regarding her legendary last stand at Samar during the war, saying that duty was and continues then some.
* LivingBattery: she's revealed
to be her primary motivation to fight. On top a biological generator of this, when she gets accused of [[HumbleHero trying to be humble]], she shoots ''that'' down too, saying navitasium, the strange energy that humbleness has nothing to do with fuels some of the willingness to serve her country.
ship girls' protocols and abilities. She's shown several times recharging the depleted navitasium cubes of the ship girls in the fleet by holding them for periods of time.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: MistakenIdentity: is mistaken for Losira by Damon once she's done cleaning Damon's ears in chapter 295, she reveals that her tomahawks are actually rigged as disguised improvised explosives, as she's seen throwing one at 185, but this is only a helicopter that lodges itself into the cockpit window and then exploding it with a remote detonator.
** Johnston also shows that,
temporary lapse.
* QuantumMechanicsCanDoAnything:
in chapter 335, she can remotely detonate her IED combat axes and tomahawks without a remote detonator by simply sending a wireless signal to her blades from her 347, Jeannie explains that all ship girls have bits of quantum computing in their main processing unit.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: with an axe, in Johnston's case - in chapter 287,
units that mainly control decision-making processes, especially under duress (i.e. during the search and destroy ALMA training simulation, Johnston trades a kill with Mutsuki by hurling her tomahawk at her.
** during the fleet assault on the Little Rock Air Force Base, she throws an explosive tomahawk up at an enemy attack helicopter and blows it up.
** in chapter 313, Johnston throws ''two'' of them in complete opposite directions, at the same time, while she's taking shots from enemies from both sides to plant her two combat axes in them and blow them up, taking out a large number of enemies.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: she speaks with a noticeable Cherokee Native American accent while her English is perfectly fluent, and Damon doesn't recognize it and is compelled to ask her what it is.

!Iowa (''Fanfic/PacificWorldWarIIUSNavyShipgirls'' version)

The ship girl incarnation of the U.S.S. ''Iowa'', BB-61.

* TabletopGame/{{Chess}}: is seen playing chess with Warspite in chapter 268.
* CutenessProximity: Has this reaction in chapter 239 to Toshi, Damon's pet puppy they picked up from Houston. Aoba and Damon even lampshade this.
* HiddenDepths:
** it's stated that Iowa, Wisconsin, Yorktown, and Enterprise all know how to speak Japanese fluently, and it's yet to be explained why they learned Japanese and how.
** Iowa and Wisconsin have learned how to sew during their time before joining the Combined Fleet.
** apparently, she and the veteran American
combat), which give ship girls are all quite adept at riding horses, having learned the skill out of necessity during reflexes, reactions, and the Federation War, as chapter 294 shows.
* HorseArcher: becomes this
split-second decision-making necessary to keep themselves alive in chapter 294 - except with rifles.
* MinnesotaNice: She is unfailingly good-natured and polite.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted first in chapter 247, when the two Iowas meet for the first time, and later when they wind up being allies in the same fleet.
* {{Ojou}}: fits this persona with her persistent politeness in behavior and speech.
* ReluctantWarrior: she's very insistent on not hurting any Americans because she doesn't like the idea of shooting her own people, including the policemen of Chicago during one of their missions. Oddly enough, she's fine with shooting the Secret Service agents, but this may be because she sees them as Blackwood's personal defense force and
battle. Jeannie herself says that they must be eliminated if they get in the way.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: when Damon, Samidare, and Suzukaze pass her while visiting the U.S.S. Alabama (before Damon technically knows who
she is), she's depicted sitting with one standing next to her, possesses a shotgun-umbrella, no less. She's yet to use it in combat, though - but in chapter 242, she's finally seen using it, an [[http://www.ithacagun.com/defense37s.php Ithaca Model 37 pump-action]], in combat.
* {{Shoutout}}: she's seen reading [[http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1266344.Man_After_Man Man After Man]] near the U.S.S. Alabama.
* VeteranUnit: she was part of Seal Team Six (different from Sanford's Seal Team Six), the elite Navy Seal Team
quantum computing core that comprised of the four American allows her to act as a command center platform for surrounding ship girls and !Samidare, who served throughout the first half of the nuclear apocalypse defending the United States from both human monitor battlefield conditions for them at all times, and Abyssal attackers during the Federation War and the Typhoon Wars.

!Iowa (canon version)

* AllohistoricalAllusion: at one point during the fleet's holiday in New Chicago, she's seen wearing
to serve as a shirt that says,[[MemeticMutation "I MADE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN".natural navitasium generator. Subverted because [[http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/ibm-q-universal-quantum-computer/ quantum computing is now being developed by IBM.]]
* {{BFG}}: SheIsAllGrownUp: her Chain SAW LMG. [[RuleOfCool The variant she's using requires her to hold would-be seventeen-year-old self (possibly only a projection from an AlternateUniverse, but Jeannie herself isn't aware of this either) meets Damon inside his dreamworld, which surprises him, since she speaks and fire it at the hip, behaves like she's carrying a minigun.]]
an ordinary but very polite teenage girl.
* BigDamnHeroes: pulls one off to interrupt Damon's ShoutOut: Her character design and Blackwood's fight and manages name are ones to barely save his life by knocking aside the shot Blackwood intended to fire at Damon's head and buys him [[VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth Vatista]]. She also gives another reference, this time to pull out the karambit that Blackwood's stabbed him with and throw it back at him to kill him.
* BoobsOfSteel: One of the most endowed ship girls and, being a battleship, monstrously strong, even fighting barehanded in melee.
** in chapter 315, this is taken to the literal extreme
''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', when an M109-A7 Howitzers's secondary machine gun shoots her with .50 BMG rounds. Iris takes the bullets in such a way that they mostly hit her in the breasts. Justified, as Iris herself testifies, the human female breast is made of mostly fatty tissue and thus has no serious repercussion of being damaged - but of course, she can only do this because she's a ship girl.
* DefectorFromDecadence: as evidenced by her intervention in the fight between Damon and Blackwood, as she must have actively rebelled against her own command prompt that forces her to recognize Blackwood as her Admiral in order to fight him.
* {{Determinator}}: near the end of Damon's fight with Blackwood, she forces her way into the lab in which the two are fighting to intervene by herself under the influence of an EMP field without the help of her ship strength (because she's forced to turn it off just to be able to get inside the lab without completely succumbing to the EMP field in the first place) and fistfights Blackwood even though she's at severe disadvantages against him. And when you realize that she's probably still got that sword wound received from Warspite, on top of being tired out from fighting against the Warspites before this, it's quite apparent that Iowa is really fighting up a slope when she intervenes at the time she does.
* FeelNoPain: Mogami asks Iris if it didn't hurt getting shot by all those machine gun bullets. Iris says that as a battleship, those bullets are nothing.
* GratuitousEnglish: naturally averted, seeing the trend of the story's depiction of ship girls.
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with a grenade-lobbing machine gun.
* InHarmsWay: while she doesn't ''try'' to get herself in harm's way, when danger comes to ''her'' in chapter 313 in the form of an enemy mortar strike, she seems to have a good time carrying Kagerou under her arm like a passenger and running out of the killzone.
* InSeriesNickname: Goes by "Iris" as of chapter 252 in order to distinguish herself from the brunette one.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: she and Warspite (Wikolia) grow quite close.
* MoreDakka: carries three firearms into battle when most ship girls only bother with two: the KAC Chain SAW, the Armsel Striker, and the Desert Eagle Mk. XIX.
** in chapter 334, when she and New Jersey deploy their ship armaments, part of their ship loadouts is an M61-A3 Vulcan Autocannon.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted first in chapter 247, when the two Iowas meet for the first time, and later when they wind up being allies in the same fleet.
* TheNicknamer: just like Damon, she seems to like doling out nicknames to her friends. Kongou becomes "Konnie", and Warspite becomes "Wicky".
* PluckyGirl: after joining the Combined Fleet, she's always this.
* PunchClockVillain: She demonstrates no eagerness to fight under Blackwood's orders even as she prepares to do so.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: wields an Armsel Striker high-capacity shotgun as her secondary firearm.
* {{Shoutout}}: while she's become good friends with the rest of the American ship girls and some of the battleships, Iris is especially close with Warspite and Kongou, for whom she has nicknames for, relationships that quite a few other fan artists ship.
** her primary firearm, the KAC Chain SAW light machine gun, is one to the Chainsaw featured in VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts, right down to its operating style and its ability to accept an undermounted M-203 grenade launcher.
* SweetTooth: her favorite ice cream is rainbow sherbet.
* TakingTheBullet: in chapter 315, when capturing the last enemy mortar site, Iris blocks a number of .50 BMG machine gun shots for Mogami since it's better for someone like her to tank the hits. What happens next is a different story...
* UnexpectedCharacter: ''Iowa'' having two separate ship girl incarnations existing at the same time, with the sole precedent of ''Samidare'' having both !Samidare and Samidare only because of explicit outside supernatural intervention saving the former's life when she should have died giving birth to the latter, probably caught a lot of readers off guard.

!New Jersey

The ship girl incarnation of USS ''New Jersey'', BB-62. Or she would be if her body had actually been completed. Now she's stuck in her original body as a sapient programme, at least until she finally got a shipgirl body shown on-screen in chapter 284.

* AmazonianBeauty: One of the first things we are told about her shipgirl body is that she is tall and muscular.
* {{BFG}}: lugs an M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon into combat as her primary firearm.
* CompositeCharacter: in this story, New Jersey is the fusion of two independent fanmade designs: one by [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1884948?tags=new_jersey_%28pacific%29 jeanex as part of the Pacific: World War II US Navy Shipgirls project]] and one by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11574990/1/Belated-Battleship Belated Battleships]], another Kantai Collection fanfiction.
* TheGlomp: after being introduced to her new Admiral, New Jersey glomps all of her ship sisters.
* GunsAkimbo: at one point during their package recovery mission in chapter 294, New Jersey jumps into the second floor of a barn to clear it of hostiles and enters with her SPAS-12 in one hand and her Desert Eagle in the other.
* {{Handcannon}}: she has a customized Desert Eagle that sports an ornate gold dragon design along its slide, and the narrative also calls it the Black Dragon, the same as J's nickname.
* HealingHands: demonstrates this ability at the end of chapter 313, when she heals the civilian man whom Asashio has shot on accident thinking that he was an enemy mercenary of his otherwise fatal stomach gunshot wound. [[spoiler:When you think about it, [[FridgeLogic doesn't someone else have the power to heal with black flames, too...?]]]]
* HealItWithFire: ties in with the above, for natural reasons. But it appears that, [[spoiler:unlike another certain someone, [[FridgeLogic New Jersey is able to completely heal the man's fatal wound without any consequence or side effect.]]]]
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with a machine gun.
* InSeriesNickname: when Suzukaze first meets her at Philadelphia, New Jersey tells her to call her "J", since calling her New Jersey every time can get tiring really fast. When she joins the fleet in chapter 284,
she tells Damon that she knows now why humans cry.
* TheStoic: due
to do the same.
* MoreDakka: carries three firearms into battle when most ship girls
her years as a human test subject, she very rarely gives any particular facial expression. The only bother with two: time she's seen showing any emotion is the M-249 SAW, the Franchi SPAS-12, and the Desert Eagle Mk. XIX.
** in chapter 334,
night after Damon dies, when she and Iris deploy their ship armaments, part of their ship loadouts is an M61-A3 Vulcan Autocannon.
cries into her mother's arms.
* MyCard: what she hands to SuperPrototype: now cemented with the wife arrival of the civilian man whom Asashio has shot in chapter 313, saying that all the property and health damage done will be fully covered.
* OddFriendship: with Suzukaze, to people who don't know their relationship. Indeed, it would be a little odd to the
second-generation Japanese ship girls to see an American battleship get along so well with a built by Lukenstor. Because Eagle states that the new Japanese destroyer.
* PayingForTheActionScene: after she heals the man's stomach wound caused by Asashio, New Jersey gives the wife a card and explains to her that if she calls the number on that card, people will come out to her home to repair the damages done to their walls and even the man's gunshot wound, even though she just healed it herself. Subverted a little because, well, it's most likely not HER money that's being used to pay for those damages.
* PlayingWithFire: she's specifically mentioned to carry Dragon's Breath shells into battle for use with her SPAS-12.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: uses a SPAS-12 semi-automatic shotgun as her secondary firearm.
* {{Shoutout}}:
** like Haida, New Jersey's gear are one to that of Valkyrie's, a Navy SEAL operator playable in ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege'', including her SPAS-12 shotgun and her Desert Eagle sidearm.
** the dragon themes that her gear has, such as her Dragon's Breath shotgun shells on her belt and the dragon pattern on her black Desert Eagle, are references to her RealLife nickname, the Black Dragon.
** her design is a fusion of two separate fanmade designs. See CompositeCharacter above.
** just like [[Franchise/StreetFighter Guile]], New Jersey also has USA flags tattooed on her arms.
* StoneWall: becomes this in chapter 294, when she stands in front of an incoming train and brings it to a halt with her bare hands. Granted, Iris had already put on the emergency brake, but still.
* SweetTooth: she loves apple pies, which is a {{Shoutout}} of its own to another Kantai Collection fanfic, Fanfic/BelatedBattleships, whose main character, also New Jersey, also happens to love apple pies.
* ThemeNaming: in case you couldn't tell by now, dragons. Nickname, sidearm, even the ammunition, they're all pretty much dragon-related.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: She probably didn't know what kind of trouble giving Suzukaze the Colossus Reactor augmentation would cause down the line.

!Wisconsin

The ship girl incarnation of the U.S.S. "Wisconsin', BB-64. Based on Wisconsin from ''Fanfic/PacificWorldWarIIUsNavyShipgirls''.

* AffectionateNickname: called "Winny" by her fellow American ship girls.
* FlashStep: appears to pull this off in chapter 242 while wielding her rapier in order to reach opponents who are just out of her sword's range.
* HiddenDepths:
** it's stated that Iowa, Wisconsin, Yorktown, and Enterprise all know how to speak Japanese fluently, and it's yet to be explained why they learned Japanese and how.
** Iowa and Wisconsin have learned how to sew during their time before joining the Combined Fleet.
** apparently, she and the veteran American
ship girls are all quite adept at riding horses, having learned the skill out of necessity during the Federation War, as chapter 294 shows.
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with rifles.
* MercyKill: puts an American soldier out of his misery once his suit gets breached in a rad zone and begins to expose him to radiation, on top of his gunshot wounds.
* {{Ojou}}: also one with Iowa.
* OddFriendship: With Yorktown, considering the other's warship self had already been sunk by the time hers was launched.. She seems to like doting on her.
* ParryingBullets: pulls this off in chapter 242 with the flat side of her rapier.
* ReluctantWarrior: also like Iowa, she doesn't like the idea of having to fight against her own people, though interestingly, she's not as adamant about it as Iowa is.
* RoyalRapier: like Iowa, she has a gentlewomanly persona and wields a naval officer's rapier.
* ShrinkingViolet: the shyest and most reserved
actually products of the American continuation of the interrupted F.L.E.E.T. 2 Project (because Lauren and Jeannie had escaped, the project couldn't move forward without their only prototype), which makes Jeannie, with her powers and abilities, this over the new Japanese ship girls.
* VeteranUnit: ThirdPersonPerson: refers to herself in third person as "Vatista", her codename.
* ThisIsReality:
she was part of Seal Team Six (different from Sanford's Seal Team Six), the elite Navy Seal Team tells Damon that comprised of the four American ship girls and !Samidare, who served throughout the first half of the nuclear apocalypse defending the United States from both human and Abyssal attackers during the Federation War and the Typhoon Wars.

!Yorktown

The ship girl incarnation of the U.S.S. "Yorktown", CV-5. Based on Yorktown from ''Fanfic/PacificWorldWarIIUsNavyShipgirls''.

* AffectionateNickname: called "Yorkie" by her fellow American ship girls.
* ArcherArchetype: while she isn't this on land, she
his life is this at sea, using an enhanced composite bow that fires either plane-launching bolts or explosive bolts.
most certainly not a DatingSim.
* BerserkButton: potentially Wisconsin in the sense of anyone hurting her, which contributes to the OddFriendship between them.
* BoomHeadshot: taken quite literally
TheWorfEffect: in chapter 336, when Yorktown hits a Wo-Class carrier from downtown with an explosive arrow right in the back of the head before the arrow blows up.
* CoolHat: a traditional cowboy hat, to reinforce her cowgirl persona.
* {{Cowboy}}: affects a cowgirl persona,
347, Jeannie outdoes Yuubari's programming skill by declaring that she can complete with the stereotypical cowgirl accent featured Yuubari's side AI project in old Western movies.
* TheDreaded: curiously, she's this to Imuya, even though Yorktown's the one who got sunk by her at the end of Midway.
* EnhancedArchaicWeapon: her Sparrow composite bow. Assuming it looks more or less like the one
just four hours when it's referencing, compared to, say, Aquila's simple Roman composite bow, Yorktown's bow is certainly this.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: when her Red Dead Revolvers ability is active, her eyes have big red X's drawn over her pupils.
* FriendlySniper: as opposed to Enterprise's ColdSniper.
* GunNut: geeks out over the sniper rifles they receive in the secret weapons cache stowed away in Damon's would-be coffin and takes the Barrett M107-CQ for herself.
* GunsAkimbo: is particularly fond of and very skilled at this, apparently: in chapter 242, her weapons besides her newly acquired Barrett sniper rifle are a pair of lever-action shotguns and her own pair of fifty-caliber revolvers.
* HandCannon: like her fellow carrier Enterprise, her main sidearms are a pair of S&W Model 500 revolvers.
* HiddenDepths:
** it's stated that Iowa, Wisconsin, Yorktown, and Enterprise all know how to speak Japanese fluently, and it's yet to be explained why they learned Japanese and how.
** apparently, she and the veteran American ship girls are all quite adept at riding horses, having learned the skill out of necessity during the Federation War, as chapter 294 shows.
** and in chapter 297 and 298, Yorktown demonstrates that she knows how to fly helicopters.
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with rifles.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: a stretch of this trope, but chapter 242 specifically describes the rate at which Yorktown fires her two revolvers as physically improbable for normal humans to do given the one-handed nature of their shooting combined with the revolvers' heavy recoils and tough handling.
** shows this off again in chapter 294, when she perfectly headshots ten Whitewater mercenaries in five seconds using her Red Dead Revolvers ability - on horseback, riding at full gallop, next to a train, at a distance of anywhere between fifteen to thirty meters.
** and again in chapter 336, this time with her Sparrow composite bow, when she hits a Wo-Class carrier with an explosive arrow at over eleven hundred meters.
* InHarmsWay: like Iris, she seems to have
taken a great thrill from running out of the mortar strike's area of effect in chapter 313, as her subsequent dialogue with Hatsuyuki shortly shows.
* InterfaceScrew: when using her Red Dead Revolvers ability, her eyes perceive time much more slowly but can continue
Yuubari twelve to see in real time, albeit with a grainy red layer that turns the whole world an obnoxious shade of red.
* MoreDakka: given the weapons that she's used, Yorktown might actually go into combat with a pair of lever-action shotguns, a pair of high-caliber magnum revolvers, and a high-caliber sniper rifle.
* NationalStereotypes: she definitely embraces many of the stereotypes of the United States, such as loving guns (particularly BIG guns), loving big explosions, etc., but in a more humorous way and not entirely a self-effacing manner, either.
* OddFriendship: with Wisconsin, who wasn't even launched by the time she sunk. As much as their personas clash, she gets long surprisingly well with the battleship,
get to the point where she will unabashedly shove her face into Wisconsin's midriff and ask for a head pat.
* OneHandedShotgunPump: while not a pumping motion, Yorktown, because she's dual-wielding lever-action shotguns, does this with her Model 1887s out of necessity in combat.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: uses a pair of S&W 500s as her sidearms, as stated above. She even uses a fully suppressed [[http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2009/03/03/sw-625-fully-suppressed-revolver/ S&W 625 "PSDR-3"]] .45 ACP revolver for her stealth missions.
* {{Shoutout}}:
** Drops several lines from [[VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} Jesse [=McCree=]]] and is even implied to use his Deadeye ultimate with her own suppressed PSDR-3. She also references Creator/ClintEastwood and his movies.
** Another one is her pair of lever-action shotguns, which are an explicit reference to the [[GameBreaking Model 1887s]] featured in VideoGame/CallOfDutyModernWarfare2's multiplayer.
** Her sniper rifle, the M107-CQ Airforce, is a sniper rifle variant featured in VideoGame/CombatArms.
** in chapter 294, gives one to VideoGame/RedDeadRevolver with her ability "Red Dead Revolvers" (which actually functions much more like the Dead Eye ability seen in VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption), one to VideoGame/KillingFloor2 for her fancy reload sequence with her dual revolvers, and one to VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} for her BondOneLiner of "Like shootin' fish in a barrel, that was."
** in chapter 334, her weapon for launching planes turns out to be the Sparrow Composite Bow featured as a Specialist weapon in VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: to further reinforce her Wild West cowgirl persona, she swings around a pair of lever-action [[http://chiappafirearms.com/products/82 Winchester Model 1887s.]]
* SweetTooth: her favorite ice cream is mint chocolate.
* {{Tsundere}}: shows a few signs of this towards Damon, but nothing full-blown.
* VeteranUnit: she was part of Seal Team Six (different from Sanford's Seal Team Six), the elite Navy Seal Team that comprised of the four American ship girls and !Samidare, who served throughout the first half of the nuclear apocalypse defending the United States from both human and Abyssal attackers during the Federation War and the Typhoon Wars.
* WeaponTwirling: does this with her shotguns and revolvers sometimes.

!Enterprise

The ship girl incarnation of the U.S.S. "Enterprise", CV-6. Based on Enterprise from ''Fanfic/PacificWorldWarIIUsNavyShipgirls''.

* AbnormalAmmo: she's able to fire a yellow-flame bullet with presumably enhanced power out of her S&W 500 to shoot the pilot of an Apache attack chopper in chapter 247. This is probably because she's using Damon's energy that she absorbed prior to this mission to give her bullet the power it needs to penetrate the bulletproof windshield of the helicopter's cockpit.
* AffectionateNickname: called "Ellie" by her fellow American ship girls.
* BadassBandolier: her first appearance in the story depicts her carrying rockets for her Bazooka in bandoliers around her chest.
* BoomHeadshot: point-blank-domes Suzuya in the center of the forehead with her S&W 500 Magnum. Ouch.
* ClintSquint: pulls one off while using her ability "Aces High".
* ColdSniper: more sociable than a true ColdSniper, but one nonetheless.
* CoolHat: wears a naval peaked hat everywhere she goes, even into battle.
* DeadpanSnarker: loves to be one when Damon and Yorktown are talking.
* DemolitionsExpert: Enterprise is the ''only'' ship girl currently who bothers carrying around a dedicated explosive platform in the form of a rocket launcher, her XM-6. The ones who come even anywhere remotely close to this are the Kagerou-Class, who only use 40mm grenades from their undermounted EGLM grenade launchers (and they've been known to shoot other kinds of 40mm grenades from them too, like smokes or flares), and Johnston, but...that's a little bit different.
* {{Determinator}}: her endurance rating is a huge 15.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: gains one very briefly when using her "Aces High" ability, when both of her pupils grow the patterns of sniper rifle scope crosshairs.
* TheGambler: seems to be quite proficient and lucky at poker games, as seen in chapter 268.
* HandCannon: her [[http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product4_750001_750051_764947_-1_757771_757767_757751_ProductDisplayErrorView_Y S&W 500.]]
* HiddenDepths:
** it's stated that Iowa, Wisconsin, Yorktown, and Enterprise all know how to speak Japanese fluently, and it's yet to be explained why they learned Japanese and how.
** apparently, she and the veteran American ship girls are all quite adept at riding horses, having learned the skill out of necessity during the Federation War, as chapter 294 shows.
* HorseArcher: becomes this in chapter 294 - except with rifles.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: she uses her S&W Model 500 to perfectly headshot an enemy at more than sixty meters with a single bullet, thanks to the aid of her Aces High ability.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: Enterprise holds the unique distinction of being the only carrier to deploy her planes via rocket launcher, through her XM-6 Bazooka, as opposed to the conventional traditional bow or crossbow launching medium.
* MoreDakka: while compared to the other American carriers, she might pale in comparison in the bullet department with only a single magnum revolver sidearm and a sniper rifle that isn't the biggest caliber that's used by the fleet, what makes up for this is her XM-6 Bazooka that she carries with her into battle for anti-vehicle or anti-squad use.
* MortonsFolk: offers one to the British ship girls in chapter 364: either exchange their information regarding what they've been doing operating in Australian waters for desperately needed medical aid, or risk being ignored and left on their own to weather the long voyage home and risk getting sunk for good by errant Abyssal forces.
* NotSoDifferent: has this view when [[HumanWeapon comparing ship girls like herself to guns and other weapons]], saying that both of them have been constructed to kill and destroy, otherwise there would be no point to constructing them in the first place.
* {{Shoutout}}: in chapter 242, an apparent ability Enterprise has is called "Aces High", a reference to the famous song of the same name by Iron Maiden.
* ThePerfectionist: hinted at in chapter 294: when Enterprise misses a shot with her sniper rifle out of the many she's already taken by that point, she's described to scowl very heavily at her own mistake.
* {{Shoutout}}: her primary sniper rifle, the MK-21 PSR, is the militarized version of the Remington MSR featured in VideoGame/CallOfDutyModernWarfare3.
* SmallGirlBigGun: while the story doesn't specify the heights of the American ship girls, if the source material is any indication, it's possible that Enterprise is the shortest among them. Not only does that not stop her from using big sniper rifles like her MK-21 PSR and even the Barrett M-95 that she picks up later, but in her introduction scene in chapter 219, she's depicted carrying a modernized Bazooka that's as tall as she is and a S&W 500 revolver.
* SmokingIsCool: like Damon, she seems to have a great liking for candy cigarettes and is rarely seen without one outside of combat or duty.
* TheStoic: definitely friendlier than the usual examples, but is still the most even-tempered of all the American ship girls. There are a few times when Yorktown does manage to make her flustered, however.
* TakeThat: When Damon asks her in chapter 242 if she doesn't want to use a more convenient firearm like an assault rifle instead of limiting herself to her bulky, unwieldy, and unnecessarily powerful S&W Model 500:
--> Enterprise: "I've got [[Film/{{DirtyHarry}} the most powerful handgun in the world]] right here. Why would I feel the need to take something inferior?"
* ThemeNaming: seems to have a thing for cards, as in chapter 242, she demonstrates two instances of this: her Aces High ability (which is supposed to be a musical reference first and foremost) and her BondOneLiner of "Straight...ten high". Reinforced when the story depicts her playing poker with some of the other capital ships, as she's very good at it and eliminates Yorktown from a match.
* VeteranUnit: she was part of Seal Team Six (different from Sanford's Seal Team Six), the elite Navy Seal Team that comprised of the four American ship girls and !Samidare, who served throughout the first half of the nuclear apocalypse defending the United States from both human and Abyssal attackers during the Federation War and the Typhoon Wars.
* WeAreStrugglingTogether: is compelled to shoot and force Suzuya to non-action to prevent her from killing the mission VIP. In addition, when Mogami shows up, she mediates the two of them by force by keeping them away from one another.
* WeaponTwirling: does this with her revolver sometimes.

!Saratoga

* AlternateUniverse: the author has made a few changes to Saratoga's canon design to make it ''slightly'' more urban-combat friendly. Her white dress is shorter, only going down to her knees, and it doesn't hold her drum magazines underneath the folds; instead, the drum magazines are kept in a double layer around her utility belt.
* BadassBandolier: as mentioned above, a change made by the author to make her uniform make a little bit more sense in the context of urban combat is to have the fifty-round drum-magazines that are seen in Saratoga's default ingame CG as fastened inside the fold of her dress instead be kept in bandolier form around her utility belt. She still has her thirty-round box magazines as smaller bandoliers around her thighs, however...[[MoreDakka probably because there just wasn't enough space on her belt.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: she intervenes just in time to save a few wounded Delta soldiers during the skyscraper assault in Little Rock.
* BigOMG: averted, she's yet to be seen gasping this like she does ingame.
* {{Charisma}}: a 9 in her Charisma stat.
* CoolGun: her canon Thompson plane launcher is repurposed into a sleek white modernized Thompson variant in the story, the LDS M-2029 Thompson, with flip-up LED optics.
* DeadlyGas: subjected to [[spoiler:Nova Gas]] after being defeated by the Inner Circle Agents in chapter 378.
* DeadlyUpgrade: her Nuclear Fusion Core basically gives her a form of energy that she can use as an auxiliary power, but the more she uses it, the more she contaminates herself with radiation. When her radiation reaches critical levels, her body will begin to malfunction and eventually shut down if she doesn't rid her core of its radiation.
* FriendlySniper: now qualifies as this, with her pleasant persona and her new sniper rifle that she comes equipped with to join the rest of the fleet at Little Rock following her repairs and proper calibration, an M40-A5.
* GratuitousEnglish: averted wholesale, as with all ship girls in the story.
* GoneHorriblyWrong: Saratoga finds out the hard way that the Smartsteel in her body, for whatever reason, is not working properly - specifically, she cannot tank bullets like every other ship girl does and gets terribly injured when trying to secure the Little Rock VIP.
* HighSpeedHijack: while not necessarily at high speed, she does jump out of her Cloaked Banshee stealth chopper into an enemy Little Bird to toss its pilots out to hijack it and save some soldiers from being shot by the Little Bird.
* HistoricalInJoke: just like the ones listed on Saratoga's canon entry, in this story, Saratoga is explicitly described to be handling her Thompson left-handed to reflect her carrying her gun left-handed in her canon artwork.
* ILoveNuclearPower: subverted. The Nuclear Fusion Core augmentation she comes with is causing her body to accrue nuclear radiation that will eventually cause her body to break down within an hour if she doesn't find a way to calibrate her body to handle the augmentation, which is impossible unless she flies back to base or goes back to Lukenstor. She doesn't even know what it's even supposed to do for her in the first place, at least not at the time that she reaches Little Rock in this state.
** with the update to Saratoga's entry in the stat sheet, we now know that it's because Saratoga's Nuclear Fusion Core isn't calibrated properly that is causing her body to accrue unnecessary radiation and consequently shut off her usual ship girl durability and make her just as weak as a normal human.
* InSeriesNickname: Sara, just like in canon.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: unlike all of the rest of the carriers in the story, Saratoga alone uses a close-ranged submachine gun as her primary firearm, but then again this may be because she didn't have any other weapon to use other than the gun that she came with.
* MightyGlacier: is this with her stats, with an 8 in defense, 4 in speed, and higher armor/health points than the average carrier in the fleet.
* MoreDakka: while all of the other carriers have big sniper rifles and pistols, with the American carriers packing just a little bit more heat, Saratoga is the only carrier to carry a submachine gun for close-range engagements...not to mention there may or may not be a pistol somewhere on her person besides her sniper rifle and submachine gun. And don't forget those fifty-round drum mags around her belt.
* OneHitPolykill: Saratoga scores a double-kill with one bullet from her M40-A5 sniper rifle in chapter 313.
* RippedFromTheHeadlines: like Warspite, she gets this treatment as well, implemented into the story a week after her canon introduction.
* TheSmartGuy: is this among the American carriers, with a 9 in intelligence and a 9 in negotiation.
* TheSouthpaw: heavily implied to be left-handed, given the way she handles her Thompson, reloading it left-handed and shooting it left-handed.
* {{Shoutout}}: as her gun's stencils reveal in chapter 297, her M-2029 is one to the M-1927 Thompson featured in the Mob of the Dead zombies map for VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2 as a purchasable wall weapon.
** her M-2029's ELO sight is one to VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3.
** her Nuclear Fusion Core augmentation is one to VideoGame/StarcraftII and one to her RealLife counterpart's demise, being sunk as a test target in the nuclear tests of Operation Crossroads.
* TearsOfBlood: one of the results of being exposed to [[spoiler:Nova Gas.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Canada]]

!Haida

The ship girl incarnation of the H.M.C.S. ''Haida'', G-63.

* AnArmAndALeg: in her scuffle with a Ru-Class battleship in chapter 336, the Ru-Class steals Haida's own combat axe and chops her left forearm off from halfway down the elbow.
* AnAxeToGrind: like Johnston, she also carries a war hatchet as part of her personal inventory to reflect her native attribute (she shares her name with a Native American tribe indigenous to the Pacific Northwest), though she only keeps one.
* AnIcePerson: in chapter 335, Haida reveals her proficiency with ice, as her war axe, fittingly named Black Ice, is able to generate black icicles on opponents upon impact.
** she herself can also directly manipulate black ice from her body, mainly through her hands, be it directly freezing someone or something or using water generate the ice.
* BackToBackBadasses: with Johnston, of course. In chapter 313, when Johnston gets launched into the third floor of a firehouse held by enemy mercs, Haida has herself launched too to join her American counterpart and friend and fights off enemies on one side of the hallway while Johnston fights off the other.
* BadassNative: subverted heavily; her appearance is that of a Caucasian teenager, but she does have a war hatchet as opposed to the military-standard combat knife as her bladed melee weapon.
* BladeOnAStick: what her single war hatchet can turn into if Haida extends its handle. She uses it in this mode as a war axe in chapter 335.
* BoomHeadshot: does this a few times to the Abyssals she fights in chapter 336, once with her black ice and another time with her Flak Cannon. She also pulls this off at a Ru-Class battleship, but unlike the previous two, the battleship doesn't die immediately from it.
* BringIt: gives her Abyssal opponents this in chapter 336 after taking a few hits and having to face another squadron of enemies.
* DefiantToTheEnd: is determined to be this when the Ru-Class approaches her to finish her off in chapter 336.
--> Haida: "Get some, bitch."
* FashionableAsymmetry: she wears a singular earring on her left earlobe, a {{Shoutout}} to the weapon keychains seen in ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege''.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: at the end of chapter 266, the final segment depicts a short dialogue between two people, who are shortly joined by Eagle. Now that Haida and Johnston are introduced, those two people at the end of chapter 266 are none other than Haida and Johnston, judging by Haida's "eh" VerbalTic and Johnston's handling of a war hatchet.
** Haida's combat axe is mentioned to be called "Black Ice", as this is what's written on the underside of the axe's serrated blade edge. In chapter 335, when Haida extends it out to a full-size war axe and fights Abyssals with it, it causes its opponents' bodies to sprout black icicles out of their own skin and flesh if Haida gets a good enough hit.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: see AnArmAndALeg above, a Ru-Class that Haida fights in chapter 336 uses the destroyer's own combat axe against her when they get into a brief melee.
* OddFriendship: with Johnston, because they had been built and activated at the same time by Lukenstor. Johnston denies seeing her as a friend, but she still hangs around her during the fleet's beach day.
* {{Shoutout}}:
** her design is based on [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/2248761?tags=myuto_(advent_retribution) myuto (advent retribution)'s HMCS Haida.]]
** her equipment is one to ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege'', of which she comes equipped with many of the same weapons and gear of Canadian operator Buck, including his assault rifle, his signature undermounted shotgun, and his sidearm. She even sports the name of his unit, the Joint Task Force 2, on the backs of her gloves, and she wears a small earring on her left earlobe that's shaped like a 6, just like the weapon keychain. And to top it all off, the war hatchet that acts as her bladed melee weapon that she has sports the letters "BLACK ICE" along its blade, the name of the DLC pack that introduced the JTF-2 operators into the game.
** [[Creator/MontyPython "Nobody expects the Canadian Inquisition, eh!"]]
** [[Franchise/StarTrek "Beam me up too, Cap'n!"]]
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: with a combat axe, in Haida's case in chapter 336, where she chucks it at a Ru-Class for a surprise attack and hits her right in the face with it.
* VerbalTic: she ends almost ''all'' of her sentences with the stereotypical Canadian "eh".
* VomitIndiscretionShot: when Haida gets smashed in the gut by a 16-inch shell, Haida's forced to vomit everything out of her gut, and the narration gets pretty detailed about what comes out.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Italy]]

!Libeccio

Italian destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/KantaiCollection.

* BigSisterWorship: she keeps her idolization of Warspite when they meet for the first time in chapter 300 and does her best to help Zara and Pola adjust to having Warspite as part of their fleet.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* {{Fangirl}}: she even calls herself one in chapter 300 when she's able to meet Warspite and make her acquaintance.
* FragileSpeedster: a 9 in speed and starts with 60% agility and reflex, but a 5 in defense and destroyer-tier armor and health.
* GlassCannon: ties in with her FragileSpeedster stats, but if she can get into melee range of her enemies, she can swiftly dispatch of them with her Assassin's Blades, as she demonstrates in chapter 303.
* GratuitousItalian: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* HiddenWeapons: has hidden blades in her shoes, specifically the heels.
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are by far the most frequent users of this, though Libeccio is perhaps the least egregious example amongst them.
* {{Shoutout}}: the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]] The reference [[CaptainObvious should be obvious.]]

!Camicia Nera

Italian destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BraidsOfAction: has two braids draped across both sides of her head, somewhat like laurels.
* CoolHat: has a black beret with an Italian eagle brooch on the front and a green horsetail.
* DeadlyGas: subjected to [[spoiler:Nova Gas]] after being defeated by the Inner Circle Agents in chapter 378.
* FemmeFatale: black military officer's uniform, cigarette, and attractive. It may be surprising to some at first glance that she is only a destroyer.
* MeaningfulName: her class, the Soldati-Class, are all named after different types of soldiers in the Italian armed forces. Camicia Nera's own name refers to the Blackshirts, a voluntary paramilitary force that supported and fought for Mussolini's Fascist government whose members famously wore black uniforms, hence their name, and Camicia Nera herself dons an all-black uniform - including a black beret, black boots, and black gloves.
* SmokingIsCool: likes and smokes cigarettes.
* TearsOfBlood: one of the results of being exposed to [[spoiler:Nova Gas.]]

!Espero

Italian destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* FemmeFatale: the other end of the FemmeFatale spectrum from Camicia Nera, with an orange dress, aristocratic hairdo, and a cigarette holder. It may be surprising to some at first glance that she is only a destroyer.
* LadyOfWar: she looks like a high-class Italian lady and conducts herself as such.
* ShesGotLegs: her dress is divided at its right side, revealing a ''lot'' of her right thigh, further accentuating her image as a sultry high-class, perhaps aristocratic Italian lady.
* SmokingIsGlamorous: more so this than SmokingIsCool, just based off her clothes alone.

!Lampo

Italian destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BadassCape: she wears what's technically a very big white capelet, but it should drape over her back like a cape.
* ExoticWeaponSupremacy: in her description, Lampo carries what looks like two light-gold swords with crooked blades that look like they're wielded together. [[http://i.imgur.com/JWlq3NY.jpg In her CG,]] it's her mechanism that allows her to launch torpedoes. But given the author, now that he's explicitly called them swords, they are more than likely a pair of exotic short swords that Lampo can detach at will and use for close-quarters combat.
* HairDecorations; she's got a special brooch on her hair, above the right side of her scalp. She also has two gold earring-looking things underneath her sidelocks.
* StatuesqueStunner: she's described to be the tallest out of all the new Italian ship girls.

!Zara

* BerserkButton: Warspite. The English battleship historically sank her and two of her sisters Fiume and Pola during the Battle of Cape Matapan, in which Zara and Fiume had doubled back after daytime action to check on Pola, who'd been crippled and stranded by airstrikes earlier in the day. Thinking that there would be no way the British fleet would attempt a nighttime engagement, the entire Italian squadron had their main guns offline, not knowing that Warspite and her own sisters Valiant and Barham were sneaking up to them. Zara and Fiume even saw the battleships approach but thought that they must be their fellow Italian ships, until the English battleships all blasted the two to oblivion. Not only was this battle the single worst defeat of the Regia Marina for the war, losing three cruisers in a single day, but Zara probably is extremely salty at Warspite and her sisters for attacking them in the way that they did.
* BigSisterInstinct: in chapter 300, when the two of them realize that Warspite is part of the Combined Fleet reinforcements, Zara immediately hugs Pola protectively to shield her from the English battleship.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: judging by the few dialogue lines that they do have, it seems they maintain this, though it may be subverted as usual.
* FreakOut: suffers this with Pola when they see Warspite. And perhaps contrary to canon and most fanwork portrayals, Zara is ''pissed'' seeing her there.
* GratuitousItalian: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* JackOfAllStats: has 6's across the board in her stats, with the one exception being endurance at an 8.
* NothingUpMySleeve: keeps her Assassin Blades [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed in her sleeves, under her wrists.]]
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are the most frequent users of this, and Zara even throws profanity at Warspite in Italian.
* {{Shoutout}}: has [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed hidden blades under both wrists and utters "Requiescat in pace" when she scores a kill.]]
** the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]]
* UnknownRival: In chapter 306, when Warspite says that she had not expected Italian shipgirls to exist, Zara accuses her of not seeing them as significant enough to be brought back as shipgirls.

!Pola

* AccidentalHero: in chapter 302, when the fleets engage in direct shelling, Pola, not used to such large-scale battles, fails to track all of the incoming shells and boosts to dodge one but ends up boosting right into the path of another one. As it turns out, Libeccio also made the same mistake and boosted the exact same direction, so Pola ended up taking a hit for Libeccio without even knowing.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: she might act similar to her goofy canon self outside of combat, but in combat, Pola becomes all business.
* ConfrontingYourImposter: both Pola's believe they are doing this when they first meet.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: judging by the few dialogue lines that they do have, it seems they maintain this, though it may be subverted as usual.
* FreakOut: suffers this with Zara when they see Warspite, hugging her sister out of terror tightly. If you consider what happened in the Battle of Matapan, Pola basically watched both of her sisters Fiume and Zara get utterly destroyed by Warspite and her sisters, [[FridgeLogic so she might actually be trying to protect Zara instead of taking refuge with her.]]
* GratuitousItalian: averted, all foreign ship girls are fluent in their own native languages.
* HiddenWeapons: has hidden blades in her shoes, specifically the heels and the toes.
* JackOfAllStats: has 6's across the board in her stats, with the two exceptions being endurance at an 8 and her charisma at 0.
* KickChick: she notably only uses kicks as melee attacks - justified because her hidden blades that can pierce Smartsteel armor are only in her boots.
* MythologyGag: the outfit she's got on during their mission in chapter 318 matches her official art outfit during the Mitsukoshi promotion.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted, she meets her alternate self in chapter 339, the Pola of Victory Belles. Naturally, as soon as they meet, they start bickering over the right to monopolize Zara.
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are the most frequent users of this.
* {{Shoutout}}: has [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed hidden blades in her boots and utters "Requiescat in pace" when she scores a kill.]] She also uses [[Franchise/StreetFighter Chun Li's Spinning Bird Kick]] and [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters one of Luong's supers.]]
** the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: probably one of the most standout examples of this in the story, Pola is both not a problem drinker and is an excellent fighter.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: more so this than BerserkButton, because Pola doesn't get angry at Warspite for showing up, that's what her sister Zara does, but she herself is terrified of her instead.

!Pola

Italian heavy cruiser as depicted in Victory Belles, not the one from Kantai Collection.

* BraidsOfAction: has a few running over her head.
* ConfrontingYourImposter: both Pola's believe they are doing this when they first meet.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: a navy blue one, and since she doesn't wear any sort of leggings or high socks like many ship girls, there's a ''lot'' of leg to show.
* HairDecorations: has two blue ribbons with her braids on her head, as well as a big purple hair bead that looks like a large grape.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted in chapter 339, the two Pola's meet and immediately enter a confrontation over who gets to keep Zara.
* ShesGotLegs: as a result of a combination of a DangerouslyShortSkirt and no thighhighs or the like.
* ThereCanBeOnlyOne: explicitly declares this to the first Pola when the two of them start squaring off over Zara.

!Littorio

* AlternateUniverse: a very minor one: the brooch on her chest has the emblem of the Regia Marina, the wartime Italian Navy, stamped on it.
* CombatMedic: Littorio's opening description explicitly mentions the Rod of Asclepius on her headdress, heavily implying this.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: averted, there is no sign of Littorio being goofy or quirky like she is ingame or in the 4koma.
* GratuitousItalian: averted, as with all foreign ship girls, they're fluent in their own native languages.
* NothingUpMySleeve: keeps her Assassin Blades [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed in her sleeves, under her wrists.]]
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are all frequent users of this.
* {{Shoutout}}: the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]]
* SiblingYinYang: Littorio is the graceful, kindhearted, and courteous side.

!Roma

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: almost expectedly, Roma in the story is much more sharp-tongued and decisive, and she's prone to a few profanities in Italian.
* AlternateUniverse: a very minor one: the brooch on her chest has the emblem of the Regia Marina, the wartime Italian Navy, stamped on it.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: averted, there is no sign of Littorio being goofy or quirky like she is ingame or in the 4koma. Roma is still quite the responsible sibling, however.
* GratuitousItalian: averted, as with all foreign ship girls, they're fluent in their own native languages.
* ImNotHereToMakeFriends: Downplayed. As she tells Littorio in chapter 319, she doesn't see the need for friends... outside her countrymen.
* NothingUpMySleeve: keeps her Assassin Blades [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed in her sleeves, under her wrists.]]
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are all frequent users of this.
* {{Shoutout}}: the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]]
* SiblingYinYang: Roma is the cold, stoic, and calculating side.
* StoicSpectacles: Roma in a nutshell.
* TheStrategist: she's the flagship of the Regia Marina.
* WarriorMonk: heavily implied; just like how Littorio has the Rod of Asclepius on her diadem, Roma has the Vatican coat of arms on her own.

!Aquila

* AlternateUniverse: Aquila sports a few additions to her canon design in this story: her unique eyes, her quiver full of plane-launching arrows, and her eagle glove on her right forearm.
* AnimalBattleAura: not just an aura either, the eagles she can produce with her arrows serve as allies that can distract enemies, light up their immediate vicinities because of the energies that they give off, and blind enemies by exploding like flashbang grenades.
* AnimalMotifs: as one would assume from her name, her abilities are all eagle-themed, and she can summon eagle energy companions from her arrows.
* ArchaicWeaponForAnAdvancedAge: in an era of modern warfare, firearm technology, and carrier ship girls who all use high-powered, high-caliber sniper rifles as their personal weapons, Aquila uses a simple composite Roman bow - albeit with Smartsteel-piercing arrows. [[BewareTheNiceOnes And she's lethal with it.]]
* ArcherArchetype: unlike most of the carriers featured in this story, Aquila actually uses a traditional bow, the same bow she uses in canon. As strange as it is to consider, Aquila of all carriers is perhaps the most faithful to her original ingame design as far as her weaponry and equipment go.
* {{Determinator}}: all Italian ship girls have an 8 in endurance, with varying degrees of high CDR and Will ratings.
* FriendlySniper: just like her canon self, she's very kind and very approachable. She also doles out headshots with her bow and arrow just as easily as she launches planes.
* GratuitousItalian: averted, as with all foreign ship girls, they're fluent in their own native languages.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: with a bow. She lands a perfect headshot at ''over 800 meters'' with just a composite bow and arrow. As a reader put it in comparison, the current world record for the longest accurate archery shot is around 283m.
** her active ability, Eagle Eye, specifically allows her to land a guaranteed hit on anyone within a kilometer, assuming that she's given enough time to lock onto her target.
* MeaningfulName: "Aquila" is "Eagle" in Italian, and she has eagle-themed traits and equipment.
* NothingUpMySleeve: keeps her Assassin Blades [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed in her sleeves, under her wrists.]]
* PatrioticFervor: cemented as a passive ability that grants them considerable combat stats for fighting either on Italian soil or in Italian waters.
* PoirotSpeak: the Italian ship girls are all frequent users of this.
* {{Shoutout}}: in her initial description, Aquila is said to have [[Film/EagleEye small but bright red dots in the centers of her pupils, surrounded by black rings.]]
** the Italian ship girls' hidden blades are called [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin Blades.]]
* VerbalTic: averted, as Italian ship girls don't know how to speak Japanese in this story, Aquila's canon tic is impossible.

!Axum

Italian submarine as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BadassNative: Ethiopian, leopard skin, and carries around a quarterstaff that can shoot torpedoes.
* CustomUniform: unlike all of the submarines in the game so far, perhaps with the exception of U-511, Axum is the only one who doesn't explicitly wear some kind of swimming suit.
* DeadlyGas: subjected to [[spoiler:Nova Gas]] after being defeated by the Inner Circle Agents in chapter 378.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: like all submarines, she also carries [[VideoGame/StarcraftI Cloaking gears]] in her eyes to indicate that she can go invisible.
* InnocentBlueEyes: blue eyes and an innocent attitude.
* IsItSomethingYouEat: implied; she looks at Mattone, Venice's pet piglet, in chapter 339, and when Lampo tells her that Mattone is not food, she seems surprised.
* TearsOfBlood: one of the results of being exposed to [[spoiler:Nova Gas.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:France]]

!Commandant Teste

* AlternateUniverse: she's seen wearing black dress pants instead of a skirt and has a small French flag emblem on the middle rim of her beret.
* BlatantLies: tells the Queen of England that France has no fleet of ship girls...when she ''is'' one herself.
* IronLady: literally. Commandant Teste has somehow become the most powerful person in France by becoming President before the events of the story and seems to have been in power for some time.
* GenderBlenderName: it seems that all of the French ship girls are this: Commandant Teste is named after a French Navy officer and pilot [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Teste Paul Teste.]]
* GratuitousFrench: averted, naturally, as all foreign ship girls speak their native languages fluently.
* UnexpectedCharacter: it's fair to say that seeing Commandant Teste as the French president caught quite a few readers off guard.

!Maillé Brézé

French destroyer as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BadassBandolier: one that goes around her waist that carries not magazines, bullets, or grenades, but ''torpedoes''.
* BraidsOfAction: has two as sidelocks.
* FleurDeLis: has these as gold ornaments on the tops of her boots underneath her knees.
* GenderBlenderName: she's named after a French Admiral, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Armand_de_Maill%C3%A9-Br%C3%A9z%C3%A9 Jean Armand de Maillé-Brézé, Duke of Fronsac, Marquis of Brézé.]]
* HairDecorations: her high ponytail is held together by a big gold hair band of sorts.
* PointlessBandaid: for some reason, she's got a little white patch on her left cheek.

!Lamotte-Picquet

French light cruiser as depicted in Victory Belles.

* AloofDarkHairedGirl: she certainly looks like one.
* CigarChomper: she prefers cigars, though given that she's mentioned she's tried candy cigarettes and said that they weren't bad, she probably doesn't mind them either.
* GenderBlenderName: she's named after another French Admiral, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toussaint-Guillaume_Picquet_de_la_Motte Toussaint-Guillaume Picquet de la Motte.]]
* LadyOfWar: a Vietnamese version, complete with a cigar.
* {{Qipao}}: wears a modified version of this that resembles the one Tone and Chikuma wear in their Kai 2 states, but Lamotte-Picquet's has long and huge sleeves.
* TheQuietOne: she is very deliberate and soft-spoken.
* RapunzelHair: she's described as very tall, and her hair is also described to reach all the way down past her knees.
* ShesGotLegs: while she wears full-body black leggings, the leggings have openings that reveal her hips and bits of her thighs; the fact that her dress splits at both sides also helps show them off. If you look at her design, her legs are very long, attributing to why she is overall very tall.
* StatuesqueStunner: she's described to be very tall, though just how tall the narrative hasn't yet described.

!Algérie

French heavy cruiser as depicted in Victory Belles.

* BadassNative: traditional Algerian dress, two curved long daggers, and headdress.
* CultureEqualsCostume: being a ship named after French Algiers, Algerie wears traditional (but modified) Algerian attire.
* DualWielding: she has two curved daggers at her sides, and in her official CG as seen in the [[http://i.imgur.com/JWlq3NY.jpg Victory Belles kickstarter reveal CG's]], she actually wields them two-handed.
* GenderBlenderName: naturally, she's named after French Algeria.
* HairDecorations: wars a gold headband across the front of her scalp.
* RapunzelHair: not as dramatically long as Lamotte-Picquet's, but hers is no slouch either, reaching down to her waist.

!Dunkerque

French battleship as depicted in Victory Belles.

* DangerouslyShortSkirt: the description for her formal introduction to the story even says so, practically word for word.
* DeadlyGas: subjected to [[spoiler:Nova Gas]] after being defeated by the Inner Circle Agents in chapter 378.
* GenderBlenderName: she's named after the city of Dunkirk.
* GreenEyes: ''very'' vivid green eyes, [[http://i.imgur.com/JWlq3NY.jpg if you look at her CG]], especially.
* LongNeck: subverted, it's not inhumanly long, but her description does say that due to the way her jacket is open at the bosom and reveals the entirety of her neck and collarbone, her long neck is easily her most distinct physical feature (perhaps next to her green eyes).
* PhenotypeStereotype: ''almost'', she's got the blonde hair, but her eyes are green instead of blue.
* TearsOfBlood: one of the results of being exposed to [[spoiler:Nova Gas.]]

!Béarn

French carrier as depicted in Victory Belles.

* CultureEqualsCostume: Bearn wears traditional French clothes compared to the more modern attire of Dunkerque. Actually, with Bearn, half the French fleet wears some kind of traditional clothing.
* GenderBlenderName: she's named after Bearn, a traditional province of France located in the southwest tip of France.
* GoldDigger: apparently she enjoys the fact that she cost Lukenstor $8,400,000 in total costs.
* PhenotypeStereotype: Bearn is the classic western blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl.
* RoyalRapier: wears one at her right side.
* StatuesqueStunner: she's described to be the tallest ship girl in the French fleet, even taller than Lamotte-Picquet.
* WineIsClassy: apparently Bearn thinks that keeping an entire bottle of wine at her side makes her even ''more'' classy.

!Surcouf

French submarine as depicted in Victory Belles.

* ExoticEyeDesigns: she's also got the [[VideoGame/StarcraftI Cloaking gears]] that all submarines have to render themselves invisible.
* GreenEyes: like Dunkerque.
* RoyalRapier: wields one like Bearn, but it's not as ornate as Bearn's.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Russia]]

!Engels

Russian destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BlushSticker: perhaps to accentuate her happy-go-lucky appearance.
* CoatCape: wears a black jacket like this. The narration speculates that it might be from some anime where [[Anime/KillLaKill a girl runs around with a pair of gigantic red scissors.]]
* CoolHat: wears a large white hat with ear flaps and a big red star on it.
* {{Handguns}}: has a Makarov PMM as her sidearm.
* FashionableAsymmetry: she wears a striped thighhigh on her left leg.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: she's introduced carrying a Saiga 12K-030 combat shotgun.

!Reshitelny

Russian destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* CoolHat: wears a tall brown Russian fur hat.
* HeroicAlbino: with her white hair and red eyes.
* RussianFashion: she dresses like she's from a well-off Russian family. The narration when introducing her even blatantly says she looks like [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Ilya.]]
* SubmachineGuns: she's introduced carrying a [=PP19-01=] Vityaz-SN.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!Tashkent

Russian destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AssaultRifles: she's introduced carrying an A-545, a modernized version of the AEK-971.
* CoolHat: wears a black peaked hat.
* {{Expy}}: discussed by the narration, which wonders why Tashkent has a uniform that looks similar in appearance to the German destroyers'.
* {{Handguns}}: she's armed with Lebedev PL-14 handgun.
* FashionableAsymmetry: her right thighhigh is shorter than the one on her left.
* OjouRinglets: overlaps with MegaTwintails territory, as her drill hairs are quite large.
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: half true, her left thighhigh fulfills this, but not her right.

!Verniy

Russian destroyer as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AlternateUniverse: her design has been altered slightly so that she's now wearing black short-shorts, because in her original design, not only is she not wearing any pants of any description, but her top uniform isn't even long enough to at least make it vague that she's wearing anything over her panties.
** in addition, the earcups she's wearing in her original design have been upgraded to be an actual sonic gadget that appears to measure acoustic and audio levels somehow, judging by its narrative description.
* CoolHat: she wears a plain white beret with a little red star on it.
* ColdSniper: not that she's got a cold personality, per se, but because she's just shy, especially when she sees herself in Hibiki in chapter 354.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: in chapter 346, the ending segment depicts a Russian coup d'etat underway, in which the Russian ship girls are participating to assist the coup. One girl uses an [=OTs-03=] marksman rifle to engage palace guards in the Kremlin, and this girl turns out to be Verniy.
* GenderBlenderName: same case with Hibiki when she gets questioned as to why she's got a masculine name. In fact, all Russian ship girls have this, due to masculine Russian ship naming conventions.
* {{Handguns}}: she's armed with a KBP [=GSh-18=] handgun.
* HeroicAlbino: very pale and light gray hair and eyes with a darker shade of red.
* LongRangeFighter: she is one of two snipers in the Russian ship girl fleet, along with Novgorod.
* MeaningfulName: her original Japanese name, Hibiki, means "echo", and she wears powerful electronic earcups that allow her to echo-locate enemies to assist with her marksman duties.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: averted, Hibiki meets Verniy in chapter 354.
* {{Shoutout}}: her [=OTs-03=] marksman rifle is one to Glaz from VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege, complete with its flip-sight optic as seen in the game. Her sidearm, the [=GSh-18=], is also from the game, being one of two selectable sidearms available to Glaz.
* SmallGirlBigGun: she's only a destroyer and appears to be one of the shorter Russian ship girls, but she carries and uses one of the strongest firearms in her fleet.
* SniperRifles: she uses the Dragunov [=OTs-03=] SVU-A bullpup automatic sniper rifle.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: retconned in so that her appearance would at least be semi-acceptable in a heavily militaristic setting.
* ZettaiRyouiki: she ''would'' be a Grade A, if it weren't for the fact that she's wearing short-shorts instead of a skirt.

!Novgorod

Russian coastal defense monitor as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AlternateUniverse: Novgorod in this rendition does not have the ridiculous circular deck fixed around her waist.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: due to her historical age, Novgorod uses World War era Russian small arms, such as a Mosin-Nagant and even a Nagant M-1895 revolver. Of course, as with all historic weapons that have been broken out of the metaphorical museum, her guns have been modernized to chamber current Russian caliber rounds.
* CoolGun: her sidearm is definitely this, a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nagant_M1895 Nagant M-1895 seven-shot revolver]] whose unique "gas-seal" mechanism allows it to be suppressed, a very unusual ability for revolvers to have in general. It is also one of the only revolvers (if not ''the'' only one) to be designed specifically for the Russian armed forces. Novgorod's specifically also has a black body and a synthetic ivory frame.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: her eyes have sharp outlines around the center of her pupils, though what they are or do is not revealed yet.
* HairDecorations: she wears two side ribbons on her hair, one blue and one yellow.
* LadyOfWar: dresses like an aristocratic Russian lady and happens to be armed to the teeth.
* LongRangeFighter: along with Verniy, Novgorod is one of two Russian ship girl snipers.
* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: her historic warship self was one of the most unique and unusual (and one of the worst) warships ever built because [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_monitor_Novgorod she was a completely circular warship.]]
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: she wears full pantyhose over her legs underneath her skirt.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: her modernized Nagant M-1895 seven-shooter.
* SniperRifles: she uses a modernized Mosin-Nagant M-91/30 PU Sniper.

!Kirov

Russian light cruiser as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BraidsOfAction: has a single braid behind her head.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: the DP-M LMG that she uses is a machine gun produced back in the 50's, and her Tokarev TT-33 pistol is also one too, being the pistol that was intended to replace Novgorod's M-1895 revolver (but they ended up being used in the Russian military in conjunction anyway).
* CoolHat: wears a drab-olive beret to go with her uniform.
* FemmeFatale: tall and wears a full military officer's uniform, the only Russian ship girl currently to do so.
* HairDecorations: while not exactly on her hair, she does wear a special pair of earmuffs that go around and behind her head so that they don't flatten her beret.
* {{Handguns}}: carries a Tokarev TT-33 handgun as her sidearm.
* IconicItem: she has an old-fashioned camera that she carries around with her at all times.
* IcyBlueEyes: they're not ''too'' icy, being described as sea-blue.
* MachineGuns: carries a Degtyaryov DP-M light machine gun.
* MinidressOfPower: comes with her military uniform.
* PhenotypeStereotype: fits this, if you consider creme-orange a blonde hair color.
* {{Shoutout}}: her DP-M is one to the deployable mounted machine gun that Tachanka uses as his special ability in VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege.

!Murmansk

Russian light cruiser as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* BadassLongcoat: the straightest example in the Russian fleet, fur-lined for the Russian weather.
* BraidsOfAction: like Kirov, has a single long braid in a similar style to Umikaze's.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: uses the World War II-era [=PPSh-41=] submachine gun as her firearm, modernized for modern combat. She also keeps a second one, because why not.
* CoolHat: wears a shapka as part of her uniform.
* GoingNative: seems to be the case for Murmansk (not that she had a choice about it, probably), as she is actually the U.S.S. Milwaukee, an American light cruiser. New Jersey recognizes her almost immediately, despite never having seen her or known that she would be here in Russia.
* GratuitousEnglish: averted in Murmansk's case specifically; while all the Russian ship girls speak with Russian accents, Murmansk is specifically described to speak fluent American English, giving away her original identity as the U.S.S. Milwaukee.
* GreenEyes: jewel-green ones, like emeralds.
* MinidressOfPower: navy blue pleated skirt.
* MoreDakka: she has ''two'' [=PPSh-41=] submachine guns, which are known for their very high rates of fire. In addition, the modernized drum-mags she has for them are specifically mentioned to hold seventy-five bullets instead of the historic seventy-one.
* PhenotypeStereotype: close, she has blonde hair, but she has vivid green eyes instead of blue.
* SubmachineGuns: uses not one, but ''two'' [=PPSh-41=]'s.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!Sovetsky Soyuz

Russian battleship as depicted in VideoGame/WarshipGirls.

* AlternateUniverse: it's hard to tell if she's wearing anything on her lower body, so she's given black short-shorts like Verniy.
* BraidsOfAction: has small side braids on both sides of her head.
* HairDecorations: wears a red hair clip.
* MachineGuns: her main firearm is the PKP Pecheneg LMG, with a bullpup configuration.
* NonUniformUniform: although many ship girls wear "uniforms" that are certainly odd in the Russian fleet, Sovetsky Soyuz's is special in that she could easily pass for a city girl with the clothes she's got on normally.
* PurpleEyes: she's the resident flagship of the Russian fleet and has jewel-purple eyes.
* SmallGirlBigGun: she's barely taller than Hibiki, in comparison, yet she lugs around a giant Pecheneg light machine gun.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: black ones like Verniy's.

Added DiffLines:

* MortonsFolk: offers one to the British ship girls in chapter 364: either exchange their information regarding what they've been doing operating in Australian waters for desperately needed medical aid, or risk being ignored and left on their own to weather the long voyage home and risk getting sunk for good by errant Abyssal forces.


* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: uses the World War II-era PPSh-41 submachine gun as her firearm, modernized for modern combat. She also keeps a second one, because why not.
