  • In-game, the cards & encyclopedia have the ship class English Name, but some are rendered differently from above.
  • "Aircraft Carrying Submarine" instead of "Submarine Aircraft Carrier"
  • "Aircraft Cruiser" instead of "Aviation Cruiser"
  • "Seaplane Carrier" instead of "Seaplane Tender"
  • "Aircraft Carrier" instead of "Standard Aircraft Carrier"
  • "Aircraft Carrier" instead of "Armored Aircraft Carrier"
  • "Battleship" instead of "Fast Battleship"
  • There are no USN hull classification codes for:
  • Submarine Aircraft Carriers
  • Training Cruisers
  • Torpedo Cruisers
  • Aviation Cruisers
  • Armored Carriers
  • KanColle fans occasionally use CVB, which was for the largest aircraft carriers, such as Shinano.

  • Landing Craft Carriers (Amphibious Assault Ship)

General

API link

A method to play the game without having to access the official DMM website.

Crossing the T

Classic naval strategy in which a line of warships cross in front of a line formation of enemy ships, allowing the crossing line to bring all their guns to bear while receiving fire from only the forward guns of the enemy. Gameplay-wise, when your fleet crosses the enemy fleet, both sides (counter-intuitively) gain a significant increase in damage dealt. When the opponent crosses your fleet, both sides receive a significant damage reduction.

Docking

This allows your damaged ships to be repaired to full health by consuming steel and fuel. You can use an instant repair (高速修復材) to immediately finish.

Expedition

This is where you send your fleets to complete expeditions, in exchange for resources and certain items. Certain ships and equipment can be obtained exclusively through expeditions.

Food supply ship Mamiya

Blinking button in the 'Organize' menu showing that Mamiya's food can be used.

This item removes any fatigue on your fleet. See here for the Wikipedia entry.

Modernization

The process of using spare ships to increase the stats (firepower, AA, torpedo, armor) of ships up to a certain point. Luck can also be modernized with Maruyu, but she is difficult to obtain.

Naval Exercise

These are battles against other players' fleets. Opposing teams update in real-time, but there is no simultaneous play.

  • New opponent list refreshed at 03:00 and 15:00 JST

Phases of Battle

  • Day Battle
    1. Reconnaissance (Stat boost, avoid being T-crossed)
    2. Initial airstrike (opening bombing, air superiority)
    3. Support fleet attack
    4. Opening/initial torpedo strike (see Type A Ko-hyoteki (甲標的甲型))
    5. Shelling/artillery phase (regular airstrike happens here)
    6. Torpedo salvo
  • Night Battle

Remodel

Often confused with Modernization, will usually result in *ship name*-Kai (改). also known as Upgrading.

Fatigue

Orange/sad faces are displayed next to the ship icon if they are too fatigued. Rest them for 15 minutes or so if it happens. Fatigue will reduce by 3 every 3 minutes. Fatigued ships will have lower accuracy and evasion. If your ships are still fatigued upon returning from expedition, your expedition will end up failing even with all other criteria fulfilled.

Sparkle

The polar opposite of Fatigue. If one or more of your ships sparkle, they will gain evasion boost during sortie. The evasion boost stats are not shown in your ship stats directly. Or, if you choose to send a sparkling ship on an expedition, it will have a chance for 150% resource gain and a higher likelihood of returning with a special item (note that this requires the entire fleet to be consisting of sparkling ships).

Medal

Medals (勲章?) are a multi-purpose item that can be used to exchange for a small amount of resources or a remodel blueprint (改装設計図?).

  • 1 medal can be used to exchange for Fuel x300, Ammunition x300, Steel x300, Bauxite x300 and Instant repair x2.
  • 1 medal can also be used to exchange for Improvement Materials Improvement Materials.png x4.
  • 4 medals are needed to exchange for 1 x remodel blueprint.

Medals can be obtained by clearing certain maps. You can find the amount of medals owned by accessing the Item page(アイテム) at the top menu bar of the main screen. Remodel blueprint is needed to remodel certain ships.

Tracer-fire effect

This occurs when a ship fires any equipped machine guns to defend itself, reducing incoming damage from enemy bombers. Your flagship will always do this by default, even without any anti-air stat.

Equipment Icons

Color-coded Aircraft

  • Dive Bomber Red Plane: Carrier-based Dive Bomber Have a strong shelling-phase attack, and prevent Installations from being attacked.
  • Torpedo Bomber Blue Plane: Carrier-based Torpedo Bomber Have a strong preliminary attack, and can attack Installations.
  • Fighter Green Plane: Carrier-based Fighters provide air superiority, and shoot down opposing aircraft.
  • Reconnaissance Aircraft Yellow Plane: Carrier-based Recon Aircraft boost accuracy and LOS greatly.
  • Seaplane Light Green Plane: Seaplane Bomber and Reconnaissance Seaplane are equippable by a wide variety of ships for both Artillery spotting and participation in Air Superiority and Bombing.
    • Large Flying Boat Flying Boats only participate in bombing if other planes are present, and are only able to be equipped by Akitsushima.
  • AutogyroAnti-Submarine AircraftAutogyros and ASW Planes are only useful against Submarines.

Color-coded Naval Guns

It is based on their roles, not ability.

  • Red Gun: Main Gun; Primarily used against ships, provide a slight AA bonus.
    • Small Caliber Main Gun Light Guns are Destroyer guns, and can be mounted on Destroyers or Light Cruisers.
    • Intermediate Caliber Main Gun Medium Guns Are Cruiser guns, and can be mounted on Light Cruisers, Heavy Cruisers, or Battleships (other than Fast Battleships).
    • Large Caliber Main Gun HeavyGuns are Battleship guns, and can only be mounted on Battleships. Depending on the Caliber of the gun, and the ship equipped, there can be either accuracy bonuses or severe mounting penalties.
  • Auxiliary GunYellow Gun: Secondary Gun; increase in accuracy and AA stats. They can be equipped by Light Cruisers, Heavy Cruisers, Battleships, and Aircraft Carriers.
  • Green Gun: High-angle dual-purpose guns or AA machine guns
  • Dual-purpose GunHigh-angle guns have the ability to effectively attack both aircraft and ships.
  • Anti-aircraft Point-defense WeaponAA machine guns specifically attack aircraft and always trigger tracer-fire effect.

Torpedoes

  • Torpedo-based Weapon Torpedoes are able to be equipped on Destroyers, Cruisers, and Submarines.

Midget Submarine

Also known by its design code name Type A Ko-hyoteki (Torpedo-based Weapon甲標的甲型) which literally means Target Type A, it's a submarine equipable on Torpedo Cruisers, Submarines, and Seaplane Tenders. Frequently used because of their ability to attack before the shelling phase.

Other

  • Anti-Submarine Warfare:
    • Depth Charges Depth Charges provide a bonus to ASW.
    • SONAR SONAR provides both an accuracy bonus and a bonus to ASW.
    • When these two are combined, ASW damage is boosted by an additional 15%.
  • RADAR RADARs provide increased accuracy, and some help against aircraft.
  • Night Battle Equipment:
    • Searchlight Searchlights provide an accuracy boost, but result in the ship carrying them being targeted.
    • Star Shell Star Shells reduce enemy cut-in chance and increase allied cut-in rates.
    • Ssp c.png Skilled Lookouts drastically increase the cut-in chance of the ship they're equipped to.
  • Landing Craft Landing Craft boost expedition return and are useful against some installation-type enemies.
    • Amphibious Tank Tanks are only useful against installations.
  • Drum Canister Drum Canisters are needed for some expeditions and Transport Operations.

  • Command Facility The Fleet Command Facility allows for ships in a combined fleet to retreat when critically damaged.
  • Propulsion Systems Turbines can be equipped on any ship. Turbines increases the ship's evasion stat, causing enemies to miss more often.
  • Sanshiki "Beehive" Ammunition Type 3 Shells boost performance against aircraft, and are highly devastating to Installations.
  • Armor Piercing Ammunition AP Shells increase firepower and allow for AP Cut-Ins.
  • Anti-Ground Artillery The WG42 Allows for powerful attacks against land-based targets.
  • Emergency Repair Fairies! Damage control items prevent ships from sinking.

  • Battle Ration Icon.png Rations restore morale during sorties.
  • Supplies Maritime Resupply allows for Hayasui to restore fuel to ships during a sortie.

IJN ship-naming conventions

  • Destroyers are named after natural phenomena, often snow (雪, "-yuki"), waves (波, "-nami"), rain (雨, "-ame", "-are"), wind (風, "-kaze"), clouds (雲, "-kumo" or "-gumo"), the moon (, "-tsuki" or "-zuki") or tides (潮, "-shio").
  • Light Cruisers are named after rivers.
  • Heavy Cruisers are named after mountains.
    • Exceptions: The Mogami class were originally designed as Light Cruisers before being extensively modified into Heavy Cruisers (and later Aviation Cruisers), and so are named after rivers.  The Tone class also, being more lightly armed than the Takao or Myoukou classes, were also named after rivers.
  • Battleships are named after provinces.
    • Exceptions:  The Kongou class were originally designed as Battlecruisers, which were named after mountains before "heavy cruiser" became a separately defined class from simply "cruiser".
  • Aircraft Carriers all have the character for "dragon" (龍, "ryuu"), "phoenix" (, "hou"), "crane" (, "kaku") or "falcon" (, "you") in them.  Light carriers tend to have "falcon" or "phoenix" names, where Fleet carriers tend to have "dragon" or "crane" names, but this is not strict.
    • Exceptions:  Akagi and Kaga were originally designed as a battlecruiser and a battleship, respectively, and follow those classes' naming conventions instead (Akagi is named after a mountain, Kaga is named after a province).  Chitose and Chiyoda were not originally aircraft carriers, their names are poetic words for "millenium".
    • While Taigei's name was changed to fit in with the standard Aircraft Carrier naming scheme ("Ryuuhou" means "Dragon Phoenix") when she was remodeled into an Aircraft Carrier, neither Chitose nor Chiyoda received the same treatment when they were remodeled.
  • Submarines are simply given operating numbers in the same manner as German U-boats, following a syllable of the word 'Iroha'.  All long-range submarines were designated 'I-' (such as all the submarines present in KanColle), where coastal subs began with 'Ro' and training submarines were 'Ha-'  In Kancolle, the submarine girls use the classical japanese number syllables (or just the number directly, in I-8's case) to make their numbers sound more name-like.
  • Submarine Tenders were a varied group of ships.  Several of these had the character for "whale" (鯨, "gei") in their names, but many did not.
    • Shouhou and Zuihou were originally designed as Submarine Tenders before being converted into Light Carriers.  Like Ryuuhou, their names were changed upon conversion, they were originally named Tsurugizaki and Takasaki.
  • Non-Navy Ships' names were often appended with "Maru" (丸) the character for 'circle'.  The reason for this tradition seems to have been lost to time, but may be related to the red circle being the symbol and flag of japan (the "hi-no-maru") or as a superstition, helping ships travel a circle of going out to sea and returning home.
    • The examples in KanColle are "Akitsumaru" (an Army ship) and both Hiyou and Junyou's names before they were converted to aircraft carriers: Izumo Maru and Kashiwara Maru.
    • The "maru" in "Maruyu" is a reference to this character, but does not actually appear in her name, which is a circle around the hiragana character 'yu'.
  • Akashi was named after the Akashi Strait, near Kobe.  Since she was the only repair ship built for the IJN, the naming conventions of her class are unclear.


The Abyssal fleet's 'classes' are the based on the Iroha, a classical Japanese alphabetical ordering.  That this is classical Japanese implies that the classes are externally ascribed to the Abyssal fleet ships, especially combined with the highly descriptive names for the bosses.

Trivia

!すでのな

One of Inazuma's lines written "backwards", in traditional Japanese format. Also appears as a wall scroll in the furniture page.

2-4-11

Naka. 2-4-11 refers to the fuel/ammo/steel combination received from her scrap (if scrapping with her default equipment).

Beaver

A nickname for Yukikaze based on her appearance. Japanese fans call her 'Hamster' instead.

  • Abbreviated BRS

Black Wock Shooter

Nickname of Standard Carrier Wo-Class Kai Flagship.

  • Abbreviated BWS

BURNING LOVE

Notable line from Kongou, a Kongou-class battleship built by Vickers Shipbuilding Company. Loves tea and fond of using English words due to her being built in England. Other examples:

  • 提督ゥ~、You've Got Mail! Love letterは許さないからネ!
  • Wow! Congratulations!
  • Tea timeは大事にしないとネー

KTKM

Shorthand for Kitakami. Wordplay from Japanese netslang KTKR which is read as kita kore, literally 'it's here', sort of like 'woohoo I got it' or 'I've been waiting for this!'.

Melon-chan

Nickname for Yuubari due to her uniform color scheme and general resemblance to a melon as well as the City of Yuubari, on the namesake Yuubari River, which is well known for its melons.

Nagamon

The name is due to Nagato's (長門) second kanji, 門, which can be pronounced as mon.
Instead of being cool and serious, Nagato is usually depicted doing silly things or showing love to random destroyers, Northern Hime, and other girls.

Rensouhou-chan (連装砲ちゃん)

RJ

Light Carrier Ryūjō.

Tenryuu Kindergarten

A common theme where Tenryuu and her destroyers escort was regularly used in expeditions due to Tenryuu's lower ammo cost (compared to other light cruisers). The official 4-koma also shows Tenryuu as being good at taking care of children (destroyers), hence the name.

Zekamashi (ぜかまし)

Shimakaze's name read backward (in traditional Japanese, characters are read right-to-left). Found on one of the Rensouhou-chan's life buoys.
