Villain Overview

The Abyssal Fleet (深海棲艦 in Chinese, しんかいせいかん in Japanese) are the monstrous group of enemy ships and the main antagonists of the Kantai Collection series. They serve as the villainous counterpart to the Fleet Girls.


The Abyssals are the opponents faced by the player's fleet. The print spin-offs put forward the idea that they are an alien menace, and what is more is that they are utterly hostile to humanity as a whole, plaguing the world's shipping lanes with unprovoked attacks. The Abyssals are constantly designed with pale skin, glowing eyes and weapons and armor (save the rare occasions such as with the Abyssal Jellyfish Princess who is based on a living thing rather than a ship or landform).

While popular fan theory proposes that the Abyssals, particularly its more humanoid members, are actually just turned Fleet Girls like ship-ships, the Summer 2014/Aleutians-Midway Event adds even more speculation fuel as it has obliquely hinted through their lines that the Midway Princess and the Carrier Princess are dark reflections of Akagi and Kaga, respectively. Also, the 2014 Fall Event in Western New Guinea implies that Aircraft Carrier Water Demon is Shoukaku's dark side.
