こういうのは柄じゃないんだが・・・ま、戦友としての気持ちだ。取っておけ It's not usually in my nature to be doing something like this... well, this is for our battle bond. Take it. "柄" (which means pattern) is being used casually by Kiso is she refers to how Valentine's doesn't exactly fit her style.

  • Kiso herself has short dark blue hair or green hair, wears an eyepatch over her right eye and wears a pauldron on her right shoulder. Her left eye is green. She also wears a hat.
  • In her Kai-2 form, she gains a cape and a cutlass as well as a more ornate eyepatch and four quintuple torpedo launchers. At various places, her ship parts, rigging and cape are painted to a winter camouflage which resembles a zebra's lines. Getting her damaged reveals that her right eye is yellow instead of green
  • Kiso doesn't use a verbal tic herself but she is often coerced by her elder sisters to use one ("I am Kiso... -kiso!").
  • She is also occasionally paired with Tenryuu due to their similar personalities and their eyepatches. Aside of the eye-patch, she is the spitting image of a certain captain. Considering that her artist, UGUME, has drawn Murasa in the past, this might not be a coincidence. In her Kai-2 form, she also resembles to Captain Harlock.


  • She is often paired with Maru-Yu, due to an anecdotal incident with some of the historic Maru-Yu-class sub's first dives. Kiso's crew apparently looked on in disbelief that the Maru-Yu even was a sub or could dive. Artists often treat Kiso as Maru-Yu's senpai and role model.
  • In fiction, Kiso is often depicted as a protective figure towards Maruyu.[1][2](In 4-Koma Manga Fubuki Ganbarimasu!,Fusou & Yamashiro wants to turn Maruyu into their lucky charm. [Please see Maruyu's quotes:Secretary(idle)] So, Kiso decided to protect Maruyu from becoming Fusou sisters' lucky charm........)


  • Her eye beneath her eyepatch is possibly a searchlight, not unlike Furutaka's eye.
  • Bears an uncanny resemblance to Minamitsu Murasa from Touhou Project.
    • In fact, according to Niconicopedia, UGUME's waifu is Murasa. Perhaps her design might have been influenced by her affection towards the character.
  • After being remodeled into a torpedo cruiser, just like Kitakami and Ooi, she can equip Type A Ko-hyoteki to fire opening torpedoes before shelling phase.
  • Her 2nd Upgrade art camo is based on her historical duty while she, along with Tama, were assigned in the "Northern Waters" mostly patrolling the Kuril Islands.
  • Received her Kai Ni on 11/12/2013.
  • Sunk by USN aircraft off Manila Bay, Philippines 14°35′N 120°50′E. Her wreck site is close to Hatsuharu's and Okinami's. Historical confusion has led to a mistaken allegation that she was capsized at Cavite.
    • Her wreckage, along with Hatsuharu's, Akebono's, Nachi's, Okinami's and Satsuki's have been cleared from the site since the 50's. All of their wreck sites are close to what is now Engineer's Island, otherwise known as the Baseco Compound in Tondo, Manila and the Manila International Container Terminal, close to the delta of the Pasig River.
