She is portrayed with skin-covered red horns with a gradient, long black hair, and red eyes. Her default outfit is the same as her sister Noshiro's: a black serafuku, black skirt, pantyhose, thigh straps, and loafers, but differs in that she also wears a black jacket.
Her rigging is also the same as her sister: a katana, two hull pieces containing her two 610 mm quad torpedo tubes, one on each side, and two of her 152 mm twin gun mounts, one on each side, plus a third 152 mm twin mount on a separate attachment. The difference is that Sakawa also has an oni familiar.
Due to her being commissioned late in the war and her inability to participate in Operation Ten-Gou, her only claim to fame is being used as a target for Operation Crossroads at Bikini Atoll in 1946 with several other ships, being sunk in the first Able detonation.
