Hamakaze is the thirteenth ship of the Kagerou-class destroyers in Kantai Collection.
She wears a short-sleeved white and blue button-up serafuku with a yellow scarf (similar to Yukikaze) on top of a Kagerou-class standard pleated skirt with a black pantyhose underneath. On her back is her rigging. Like most of the Kagerou-class, she wears white gloves. She wields two pistol-like guns, one resembles the standard 12.7 cm twin gun, the other resembles an Anti-Air gun.
For her B remodel (which is not an actual second remodel), she is essentially the same as in her remodel except that her rigging is bigger (in line with the seasonal portraits) and she uses long 10cm guns. While she is now significantly more powerful stats-wise, the portrait serves as an art refresher.
Due to similarities in appearance, she is frequently compared to a number of characters from other franchises, like Mash Kyrielight from Fate/Grand Order, Rem from Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu and occasionally Youmu Konpaku from Touhou and YoRHa No.2 Type B from Nier:automata.
