Event Japanese English Note
雷よ!かみなりじゃないわ!そこのとこもよろしく頼むわね! I'm Ikazuchi! Not 'Kaminari'! Please take care of that part too, okay! 雷 is normally read as kaminari (thunder). She's saying to remember her name well.
Library Intro


Together with my fellow destroyer Inazuma at the Battle of Surabaya, we rescued the survivors of the sunk enemy's ships.

I think that strength just isn't enough.
Don't you agree, Commander!?

On March 2, 1942, Ikazuchi, under the command of Commander Shunsaku Kudō at the time, rescued 442 survivors consisting of British and American survivors whose ships were sunk from an earlier battle.
元気ないわね。そんなんじゃダメよ You look down... That's no good, you know?
司令官、私が居るじゃない! Commander, I'm here for you!
そうそう、もーっと私に頼って良いのよ Yeah, you can rely on me all you want!
えっと、特にやることはないの?んー…… もっと私に頼っていいのよ? (改) Oh, Isn't there anything I have to do? Well…… you may count on me more! (Kai)
 ⇧ for Kai form, plays Base form's Secretary Married line when sparkled
司令官、あなたは大丈夫。だって、私が側にいるんだから! Commander, you're alright. Of course, it's because I'm beside you!
ねえ司令官?私無しじゃ、もう艦隊は成り立たないでしょ?ね?ね? Hey Commander? If I wasn't here, there wouldn't be a fleet, right? Yeah?

Night battle
ネズミ輸送任務より、やっぱ戦闘よね! Not saying the Tokyo Express is bad, but combat is great! The Tokyo Express was the allies name for the night-time resupply missions in the South Pacific; it was mainly done by destroyers (for speed) and later subs (for stealth)
Night attack

Anime ikazuchi


  • She has reddish-brown hair that is slightly disheveled in a similar manner to her sisters. The left side is adorned with a small red hairpin.
    • Another trait shared with her sisters is the matching colour of her eyes and hair.


  • Very boisterous and a bit overconfident in contrast to her sister-ship Inazuma's timid behavior.
  • Aspires to be an onee-san-like figure, as evidenced by her desire to be relied upon by the admiral. This trait which contrasts with the class' somewhat juvenile behavior is emphasized as her moé point in a similar fashion to Akatsuki.


  • Sunk in action April 13, 1944 south of Guam (10°13′N 143°51′E). There were no survivors. She is near to the Mariana's Trench, so her depth is between 5-3 km below the surface.
  • On March 2, 1942, Ikazuchi rescued 442 survivors from the Royal Navy destroyer HMS Encounter (H10) and United States Navy destroyer USS Pope (DD-225). This humanitarian decision by Lieutenant Commander Shunsaku Kudō placed Ikazuchi at risk of submarine attack, and interfered with her fighting ability due to the sheer numbers of rescued sailors. Ikazuchi's prisoners were later turned over to appropriate entities. Kudo welcomed the prisoners aboard, and stated to them in English that he respected the prisoners as warriors of their own countries.
    • Kudo did not report this rescue and kept this between himself and the crew. He was transferred to Hibiki afterwards. No word about the rescue came out especially after Ikazuchi sunk. Kudo died without revealing this, and it would take years before a former prisoner inside Ikazuchi, Sir Sam Falle, recalled how he was rescued by Kudo's crew.
    • Similar actions to rescued enemies would demand prisoners be put to death by higher authorities of the IJN, and Kudo wasn't the only Commander or Captain to have rescued enemies and returned them safely.
  • Her name means "thunder". Ikazuchi is a more poetic or archaic pronunciation of the character "雷", which is usually pronounced "kaminari", thus her intro quote.
    • If you combine Inazuma and Ikazuchi's Kanji characters, it forms the word Raiden "雷電”, or electricity.
  • The first Torpedo Boat Destroyers (TBDs) procured by the Japanese Navy ever was the Ikazuchi class in 1897~1899, making of Ikazuchi the very first name planned to be carried by a Japanese destroyer. The Akatsuki-based Ikazuchi is the second, and the basis of her Kancolle avatar. In the JMSDF, her name is used again, firstly leading her own class of destroyer escorts, and most recently, in the Murasame type of destroyers.
    • Actually the next class leading destroyer, Murakumo, was completed before 1899 Ikazuchi although she had been laid down and launched after, so technically Murakumo is the first name carried by a Japanese TBD.
    • Inazuma was also the second ship of the 1899 Ikazuchi class, and Inazuma seems to be always together with her in succeeding ship classes, in being an Akatsuki-class destroyer, in becoming a JMSDF Ikazuchi class ship and a JMSDF Murasame class ship. This is probably because the meaning of their name is very similar (Lighting and Thunder tend to be associated with one another)
    • Despite not being the lead ship the Akatsuki class, Ikazuchi was launched and commissioned before any of her sisters. This may be the historical link and basis to her leadership personality.


  • Composition: A10.
  • Sortie (Any): B12.
  • Sortie (Clearance): B42.
  • Sortie (Clearance): B44.
