- Akizuki appears somewhat older than most of the other destroyers, having a significantly larger displacement compared to the earlier models. Her serafuku includes an armored "corset" and neck-guard designed to evoke the image of the ship's bow, but is otherwise white-and-gray with a yellow neckerchief. She has mid-length black hair in a ponytail with a slight ahoge sticking up from her hachimaki (which has "61st Destroyer Division" written on it), and blue eyes.
- Her combat gear includes a large torpedo launcher strapped to her back with a fire director as a hair ornament on her head used to tie her hair into the ponytail, and a split bow (similar to how Nagato carries her turrets) with two Rensouhou-like familiars, Chou-10cm-hou-chan. She also carries four spare 10cm barrels in a thigh strap holster on her right leg, referencing the 10cm Type 98 gun's short barrel life requiring frequent barrel replacement.
- Akizuki's hourly lines reflect how, owing to being a later-war destroyer, her crew typically had to suffer through having a shortage of rations, where meat was rarely served. As a result, there are often jokes of her being in awe of being served even ordinary food, and having her mind blown by something luxurious.
- She has been nicknamed "ducky" due to alternate Japanese romanization rendering her name as Akiduki. Together, Akizuki and her sisters Teruzuki and Hatsuzuki are sometimes referred to as "the duckies".
- Fall 2014 Event E-2 Clear Reward.
- Akizuki-class ships have the following exclusive AACI types:
- Type 1: Two High Angle mounts () + RADAR (): +7 fixed bonus per slot. This is the second strongest AACI in the game.
- Type 2: High Angle mount () + RADAR (): +6 bonus. The third strongest AACI, it can be used together with Night Battle equipment, such as Searchlight.
- Type 3: Two High Angle mounts (): +4 bonus.
- All those types, however, have the lowest priority.
- When there are multiple ships with AACI in your fleet, for each of those ships the game checks whether it triggers AACI until one of them does. However, the order in which they are checked depends on the AACI type (i.e., priority = type). Akizuki-class exclusive AACI (of any type) has the lowest priority, so for it to even have a chance to trigger, all other ships' AACI have to fail. Therefore, having another AACI ship in your fleet can be counter productive if its AACI is weaker (e.g. non-Akizuki-class Destroyer (DD)), as it will lower the chance of Akizuki-class Destroyer (DD)'s stronger AACI from happening. The only ship that has stronger AACI is Maya Kai Ni (+8 bonus), she or another Akizuki-class Destroyer (DD) can be freely used as a second AACI ship in the fleet (another option is a battleship (BB) exclusive +6 bonus setup).
- The AACI trigger rate depends on ship's AA ())value, that is, in theory, Akizuki Kai (116 AA ) will perform AACI more often than Teruzuki Kai (114 AA ), while Teruzuki Kai will perform it more often than Hatsuzuki Kai (110 AA ). However, the difference is thought to be small (one up to few %).
- Akizuki-class exclusive AACI are the only AACI types that can use both Surface and Air RADAR () (Air RADAR () are preferred due to their additional AA () value). Non-Akizuki-class Destroyer (DD) can use 10cm Twin High-angle Gun Mount + Anti-Aircraft Fire Director and a Surface RADAR () without risking to override Akizuki-class AACI.
- Her name means "Autumn moon".
- Constructed at Maizuru Naval Arsenal. Commissioned on 11 June 1942.
- She refers to her turrets as Choujuusenchihou-chan (長10cm砲ちゃん). With Shimakaze, Amatsukaze, Teruzuki, and Hatsuzuki, she is one of 5 destroyers with "animated turrets".
- Head headband words means "61st Destroyer Division" (partially seen 駆一十六第 on CG art).
- Like Z1, Z3, Amatsukaze, Teruzuki , and Hatsuzuki, she has 3 slots from the beginning. Other DDs have only 2 slots before remodeling.
- Food was in short supply towards the end of the war and meals were simplified, hence Akizuki's rather simple lunch and dinner options (her "wonderful dinner" is more common lunch now then it was back then).
- She was sunk on 25 October during the battle of Cape Engano. Although it's often stated she was sunk by aircraft from Task Force 38, some sources claim she was actually torpedoed by submarine USS Halibut.
- The particular shape of her damaged bow as seen in her 中破 artwork is based on the repairs she received when was docked in Nagasaki in July 1943. They used the bow of her sister ship "Shimotsuki", who was still under construction at that time, and merged it with Akizuki.
- Akizuki's name has been passed down twice as the name ship of their particular class of destroyers: the DD-161 Akizuki in 1960, and the DD-115 Akizuki in 2010. Coincidentally, both ships are the lead ships of Akizuki-class destroyers.
- The extra barrels that Akizuki carries on her right leg are replacement barrels for the 10cm Twin High-angle Gun Mount as they have a relatively short barrel life due to the high velocity rounds being used.
