I'm Takanami, the sixth Yuugumo-class Destroyer. Born in Uraga.
I was assigned to the 31st Destroyer Division, and I had done my part well.
On a fateful night battle at Lunga Point, as the Leadship of the Lookouts squad, our crew first spotted the enemy fleet... and that may have brought victory to the battle... Yup!
At the Battle of Lunga Point, Takanami is the one destroyer who got hit and sunk during the engagement.

She was sunk as a result, giving the IJN enough time to counterattack. No other IJN Ship was even scratched in this battle.

 Character Edit


  • Takanami has short green hair in a bob cut with a notable long payot, and the sides of her hair are braided. She has brown eyes. Like her sisters, she wears a long-sleeved white shirt under a maroon sleeveless dress and a blue bowtie. When moderately or heavily damaged, it is revealed she wears ayellow sports bra with red stripes. She also wears grey pantyhose with white-and-brown cross laced boots
  • Her combat gear includes twin torpedo-launcher turrets strapped to each thigh, and a hand-held turret with twin cannons. Carried on her back like a backpack is her mast and smokestack, with a platform on a swing-arm carrying a pair of smaller secondary turrets.
  • She has an alternate remodeled art, with a more self-assured expression on her face.

Personality Edit

  • Takanami has a personality that is lacking in confidence. Her verbal tic is "かも" or "kamo", which usually means "maybe". The homophone "kamo" (written "鴨") can also mean duck, if an artist is up for some puns. She is often shown with ducks or duck-themed alternate clothing for this reason. This verbal tic is shared with Akitsushima, who was introduced at the same time.



  • Her name means "Tall Wave".
  • Sunk, 30 November 1942, several miles south-southwest of Savo Island by USS Minneapolis. Her wreck is near to Akatsuki's Wreck. Both at 800 m below sea level.
  • Takanami was completed on 31 August 1942 and sunk 30 November 1942, she served for 92 days to the Imperial Navy.
  • Takanami spotted the US fleet before their radar spotted the IJN fleet at Tassafaronga. This is reflected by her remodel having Skilled Lookouts.
  • Her name survives as the name of the lead ship of the Takanami-class guided missile destroyers, which entered service with the JMSDF from 2003 onwards.
