  • Tenryuu has short purple hair and yellow eyes. She wears a cardigan over a school uniform with a necktie and thighhighs and an eyepatch over her left eye.
  • She carries a sword in its scabbard on her right side.


  • Very bellicose, with the catchphrase of "怖いか?" (Heh, you scared?). She is often depicted in a way that subverts this, especially when teased by Tatsuta. She is also depicted as a babysitter to the Akatsuki class.
    • Such a depiction is because despite of her brash appearance and manner, her effectiveness as a ship leaves a lot to be desired, commonly making her part of expedition crews instead.
  • Despite her real-world counterpart being one of the oldest and one of the most serviced ships; Tenryuu's mannerisms paired with her eyepatch often lead people to depict her as a chuunibyou character, with humorous results.


  • Named after Tenryu River in Shizuoka Prefecture; her name literally means "Heavenly Dragon".
  • A Training Support Ship, JS Tenryu (ATS-4203) is in service with the modern JMSDF.
  • Designed as the lead ship of destroyer flotilla. See Tenryuu's Kindergarten.
  • Despite being launched in 1918, she was capable of sinking the USS Quincy with two torpedoes, an impressive feat considering that the New Orleans-class heavy cruisers were at least 16 years newer than herself.
  • Sunk by USS Albacore (SS-218) 18 December 1942, off Madang, New Guinea.
  • A character from Touken Ranbu (another DMM-hosted game), Shokudaikiri Mitsutada, shares many similarities with her. It is not surprising that they are one of the more notable pairs in TouKan (Touken Ranbu X Kantai Collection) crossovers.
  • In movie, Tenryuu's sword is not a just a mere tool; she used it to deflect enemy incoming shells.
