Because she has a special chibi illustration that suits her personality, 0v0 becomes a symbol of Quincy. Some admirals use it as a suffix of Quincy. E.g. Quincy0v0.


Takao-class (Takao, Atago, Maya, Chokai)
Building time of Takao-class CAs. Since Takao-class are the most common ships you get while constructing, 1:25:00 is actually very annoying.
Any admirals who showing off ships will be banned for 1:25 by admins manually.
Also, 125 is a curse of this game in some people's opinion:
  • 1:25:00, refers to above
  • Code 125 is connection error
  • On 25th January 2015, 50 Steels incident happened.
  • On 5PM 12th February 2015, All characters at Bismarck server were rollbacked.
  • There were 125 crews on William D. Porter who is the most unlucky ship in WWII.
  • 2015, how many bad things happened?

After World War I, they were the only seven Super-Dreadnought Battleships permitted after the passing of the 1922 Washington Naval Treaty, hence why they got the name "Big Seven."
More commonly, Big Seven refers to their skill "BIG SEVEN" after Modification.

BSM(Persian cat)

Coincidentally, Bismarck's Chinese name contains three characters which starts with B S M as well.
In game, a part of Bismarck's hair somewhat resembles cat's ear. Also, the starting letter of Persian cat in Chinese is also BSM, therefore she is commonly referred to as cat.

Pro Admirals/Players.
Chinese players usually call pros "dalao".

Dark Alchemy

Dark Alchemy refers to the action of exploiting lv1 dd's to obtain resources. The procedure is approximately the following:
Send one lv1 dd to 1-1 to get 2nd dd to drop. After the 2nd ship is obtained, first ship is dismembered for scarce resources. Then the second ship is sent back to 1-1 to get a third ship, and after the third ship is obtained the second is dismembered. Cycle goes on.
Some players use scripts to repeat this cycle numerous times to obtain resources(technically this is cheating, but the use of scripts and programs are difficult to detect). This is frown upon by most players, and developers added a daily 500 drop limit to combat this action.

Dead End

The way that can't go the BOSS point in battles


Fifty Steels

She was able to be constructed during the event (25 Jan. to 27 Jan.) but the lowest steel limit is 650 instead of 600, which led to lots of players failing to build Vanguard. This event caused a great loss of resources and Vanguard is called "the Fifty Steels" by Chinese players since the event.

The nickname for the Japanese Aircraft Carrier Akagi.
Prior to obtaining a Modification, Akagi was notoriously infamous for sharing an uncanny resemblance to Kantai Collection's Akagi. After obtaining a Modification, the official artist for Warship Girl's Akagi noted that players from this point forward should not think of Akagi as being a clone of KC's Akagi, but rather to think of Akagi Mod as a "fox spirit," referring to her new design.

Fubuki Squad

Also referred to as the "Bucky Squad."
An all-Destoyer fleet that uses Fubuki (Flagship), Shirayuki, and four other Special-type (Akatsuki-class, Ayanami-class, or Fubuki-class) Destroyers.

Shipgirls that are good in almost every single situation and can be considered standard for most, if not all, fleet compositions.


Lady Lex/Waifu

Historical nickname for the ship appropriated by players. The second part came about due to the fact that she is the first easily obtainable end-game ship (thus the first obtained end-game ship for most player), she is usually the first ship to get 100 affection and therefore the first ship most players are married to. According to data released at 2015 July 18, of the 572,111 married ships in game, 238,415 was Lex. Second and third highest being Rodney at 124,681 and Renown at 84,195.
Obviously Lexington is everyone's waifu.

A term referring to those with low level ships and less adequate equipment due to lack of dedication and/or in grinding their warship girls.

Refers to any theory that is not proof or can't be proof, such as:

  • Using specific recipes increases the probability of getting rarely ships
  • Constructing at a specific time increases the probability of getting rarely ships
  • Appointing a specific ship as flagship increases the probability of letting RNGesus send your fleet to where you want
  • Using high-luck ships increases the probability of getting EBS in Expedition.
  • Watching Star wars increases the probability of passing DEC15 Ex-5 and getting USS Enterprise, eating potatoes as fishing for O'Bannon increases the probability of getting her. Or something like that.
  • Illustrators can get whatever they want in the game by drawing it.

Arpeggio of Blue Steel


She was called so by Norwegians (Lonely Queen of the North, "Den ensomme Nordens Dronning").
Aside from being powerful, Tirpitz also has the highest HP to steel ratio in terms of repairing. Therefore most players rarely use her for actual battles (especially after other high speed BB's are introduced into the game and she is no longer one of the only few high speed BB's), and she seems to always be sitting in dock. Plus, if you zoom in on her drawing, she has a manga on her thigh, thus she is commonly referred to as "Otaku of the North", or "Northotaku" for short.



Illustrators I think you're smart enough the get this one

Pope of Warship Girls

1st: Richelieu, 2nd: Lion

The nickname for the American (Light / Fleet) Aircraft Carrier Ranger.
The nickname comes from the "Tallboy Bomb" equipment from the Operation Valkyria event, which increases the effectiveness of Dive Bombers for Aircraft Carriers. Since Ranger Mod's skill increases the effectiveness of Dive Bombers and Ranger's fourth slot carrying aircraft carrying capacity is quite low, it is common to see most Ranger Mods using a Tallboy in that fourth slot in order to increase her effectiveness even further.

The three shipgirls are called "teachers" because their Skills increase the amount of EXP a ship in the same fleet gains after a battle.
