  • Wears a serafuku similar to the rest of DesDiv6 with an anchor emblem on the chest.
  • She and Hibiki wear navy hats that also bear an anchor emblem.
  • She has dark purple hair that is lightly disheveled in a similar manner to her sisters.
    • Another trait shared with her sisters is the matching colour of her eyes and hair.


  • Portrayed as the most childish of the Akatsuki class; she aspires to be a well-mannered lady, much in contrast to her endearingly childlike mannerisms.


  • Sunk on action off Guadalcanal on the Iron Bottom Sound, on the night of November 13, 1942. She was hit by gunfire when she used her searchlight to illuminate USS Atlanta, which turned herself into a target to the entire US forces, who then rescued her survivors, 18 of her 197 hands. One of her surviving crew, Michiharu Shinya, her chief Torpedo officer said the US forces response to her lighting up the Atlanta was so fast and fierce that Akatsuki and her crew had no time to even counterattack before she took the fatal damage that sunk her, adding that anyone crediting her with damaging or sinking any US ship at Guadalcanal is wrong.
  • Her wreck is near to Takanami's wreck, 800 m below the sea level. Her exact location remains undiscovered, as the supposed wreckage in Dr. Robert Ballard's expedition in 1992 turned out to be Ayanami instead.
  • Her name means "dawn".
    • The first Akatsuki class was a two vessels Torpedo Boat Destroyer class ordered by Japan in 1897 (simultanously with 1898 Ikazuchi class and 1898 Murakumo class) and completed between 1900 and 1901. 1901 Akatsuki's sister was named Kasumi.
    • This makes Akatsuki one of the only two names carried twice by leaders of destroyers class, the other being Kamikaze.
    • Her name is currently and prominently carried by a JAXA space probe orbiting Venus.
  • The Akatsuki class are sometimes considered a subclass of the Fubuki class, like the Ayanami class, as during the war they were not treated as distinct. They featured improved boilers and torpedo launcher turrets over the Ayanami class. When introduced, her class was among the most powerful destroyers in the world along with the Fubuki and Ayanami class.
  • Although her CG has a 61cm Quad Torpedo Mount, she instead starts with a 61cm Triple Torpedo Mount.
  • In episode 6 of the anime series, she mispronounces "elegant" as "elephant," which is the source of the "elephant lady" meme.
  • Received her Kai Ni on 29/5/2015.
