Character

Appearance

  • Iowa has long blonde hair, with star-shaped pupils. She wears an outfit reminiscent of women featured on World War II American Navy pin-up posters and a pair of American flag-patterned leggings. The coloration of her costume also closely resembles the paint scheme of the real Iowa's deck.

Personality

  • Iowa is portrayed as a playful American girl who uses a bilingual pattern of speech, similar to Kongou, albeit with much heavier inclusion of English words and expressions. The bilingual pattern of speech is seen by Japanese community as resembling the Lou language use by Lou Oshiba.
  • Takes great pride in being an American battleship and is not at all shy about demonstrating her firepower, as evident in her quotes.
  • She's shown being good natured towards other Japanese ships with a friendly rivalry with Yamato, though she appears to be unaware that "Hotel" isn't a flattering nickname for the latter.

Notes

  • Spring 2016 Event E-7 Clear Reward.
  • Iowa is obtainable in the PlayStation Vita game KanColle Kai by clearing the game on "乙" (Otsu/Hard) difficulty or higher (note the game's difficulty system is translated differently in Vita game compare to the browser).
  • When she was first introduced in the browser game, her maximum stat (along with Kamikaze's) in her pre-Kai form may increase beyond her predetermined stat cap if she had been modernized beforehand. The extra maximum stats has been removed on 13th May 2016 in-event maintenance.

Trivia

  • Iowa is the first US Navy ship introduced in Kantai Collection, initially appearing in the PS Vita game KanColle Kai before the PC version. She was introduced in the original PC browser game in the Spring 2016 Event as a reward for clearing E-7, the final map of that event.
  • The Iowa-class ships were the last battleships built and commissioned by the United States as it became clear that the future of naval power projection lay within aircraft carriers and submarines instead of big gun ships. Despite this, the USS Iowa herself participated in the Korean War, and in various naval exercises in the following decades.
  • Compared to other ships who were either sunk, scuttled, shipwrecked, or sold for scrap, Iowa is the first personification of a currently intact and floating ship in the game. Her historical counterpart was dismissed from active service in 1990 and is currently docked in the Port of Los Angeles as a museum ship.
  • During Operation Hailstone on February 19th, 1944, USS Iowa (BB-61) along with her sister ship USS New Jersey (BB-62) fired upon and sank the Japanese training cruiser Katori. In some fan materials, this manifests as Katori being fearful or vengeful towards her, though attempts at vengeance end up failing, often with humorous results.
  • The design on the belt buckle of Iowa's normal art, and on the obi (sash) of her New Year's art, is the insignia for US Navy Officers signifying that a person is a senior or flag officer. The insignia is typically worn as a gold emblem in front of an officer's cap.
