  • Ayanami has long black hair with a bow on top. She wears a modified version of the Fubuki-class' serafuku, with a brown dress and brown trim.
  • After her second remodel, she wears the same outfit that Fubuki wears post-second remodel.


  • Ayanami, like Haruna, speaks in third person.
  • She takes a respectful and grateful attitude towards the admiral, though she is also dutiful and hardworking.


  • Scuttled following the Second Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, November 15, 1942 (not to be mistaken with the Second Naval Battle of the Solomons in Japanese sources, as this is the Battle of the Eastern Solomons). (9°10′S 159°52′E)
  • In Ayanami's 2017 Summer Festival CG, a small black leopard is held on her left hand, which assumes a threatening stare when she gets damaged. This black leopard is a representation of her reputation during her final action at Guadalcanal mentioned above, where she -as a lone ship-, acted as one of the three prongs of Vice Adm. Nobutake Kondō's attack force. As the force made contact and began exchanging fire with the American fleet, she set the two USN destroyers Walke and Preston afire, then with a torpedo salvo sank the former while also incapacitating another destroyer, the USS Benham, all the while being the center of the USN force's concentrated gunfire, which set her afire and destroyed one of her three torpedo launchers. Critically damaged, she fired a final gun salvo at the USS South Dakota and damaged the battleship's electrical systems (which effectively knocked out her radars, radios and the majority of her guns) before being sunk herself. This act of valor earned her the title of "Black lepard" (黒豹, Kuro-hyō) alongside "The Demon of the Solomons" (ソロモンの鬼神, Solomon no Kijin) and put her on equal terms with Yuudachi or Jintsuu. Paying homage to Ayanami's history, her leopard counterpart appears in her Summer Festival CG.
    • On an unrelated note, the cork gun that she holds is in truth a Type 100 submachine gun of the IJA, whose magazine is loaded when Ayanami is damaged. It is unknown if it is really just a cork gun modeled after the SMG, or a real gun with a cork jammed on the muzzle.
  • Her name means "crossing waves".
    • It was first carried by the thirty-second and last ship of the first Kamikaze class in 1909.
  • At the Beginning of WW2, she was under the orders of Sendai along with Fubuki-class mod.1 and 2 (all but the Akatsuki class)
  • While in KanColle she is the lead ship of the Ayanami class, in other contexts she is referred to to as the 11th ship of the Fubuki class. She was the first of the greater Fubuki class (containing the Fubuki, Ayanami and Akatsuki classes) with a modified gun turret allowing her guns to angle up to 75 degrees.  When introduced, her class were among the most powerful destroyers in the world along with Fubuki and Akatsuki classes.
  • Wreck discovered in 1992 by Dr. Robert Ballard. Her wreck around 700-800 meters. The wreck rest on 2 pieces. Initially mistaken as Akatsuki's as their wrecks are in the same vicinity.
  • Her second remodel represents her performance during her final mission, a night battle where she formed a single 'prong' of a three-pronged attack alone (other prongs each contained a light cruiser and multiple destroyers), sank (or helped sink) three destroyers, heavily damaged a fourth, and assisted Kirishima in trading fire with a battleship, the USS South Dakota.
  • Received her Kai Ni on 20/06/2014.
  • The Evangelion character Rei Ayanami takes her family name from this ship. In fact, almost all Evangelion characters have names connected to ships (IJN ships in particular); Maya Ibuki (in this case a double reference because Ibuki is also the name of an IJN cruiser), Shigeru Aoba, Makoto Hyuuga, Ritsuko Akagi, Misato Katsuragi, Kozo Fuyutsuki, and Mari Makinami Illustrious, to name a few. Asuka is actually named after three ships depending on the era, either Asuka Langley Souryuu (Langley was the first American Carrier), or Asuka Langley Shikinami (the later version of Evangelion brings her namesake class in line with Rei's).
