Azur Lane Wiki

Cleveland is a light cruiser of Eagle Union. Her first appearance is on episode 1. Her CVs are Saya Horigome (Japanese) and Kristen McGuire (English).


- Her self-introduction mentions the numerous battles she was a part of and the Battle Stars she has earned. She participated in many coastal engagements throughout the war and was a valuable asset to ground troops on the islands.

- Her third idle secretary line mentions trees. This is a reference to the fact that Cleveland spent the entire war as coastal support for ground troops on the islands in the Pacific. She saw very little naval combat against other ships.

Light Cruiser[]



USS Cleveland (CL-55) was the lead ship and one of the 27 United States Navy Cleveland-class light cruisers completed during or shortly after World War II. She was the second ship to be named for the city of Cleveland, Ohio.

Cleveland was commissioned in June 1942, and saw extensive service in the war, briefly in the Atlantic, and then in the Pacific theater. Like almost all of her sister ships, she was decommissioned shortly after the end of the war, and never saw active service again. Cleveland was scrapped in the early 1960s.

Cleveland class[]

The personification of the light cruiser USS Cleveland, and the eldest of the five Cleveland sisters.

  • Ascended Meme: Her "Clevedad" fan nickname from Asian World of Warships has become one in the game.
  • Badass Cape: She's a highly skilled kansen, leader of the Knights of the Sea, and wears a white cape on her regular skin, and a black one on her Halloween skin.
  • Bifauxnen: Her Gentry Knight skin makes her look like this to a slight degree.
  • Canine Companion: Gains a pet dog named Knight in her Gentry Knight skin.
  • Cool Big Sis: As far as her sisters are concerned, she's very much this. Montpelier takes it a bit further as seen below. If paired with Fletcher or Z1, she will comment on them sharing this status with her for their classes/ship types.
  • Cool Shades: Will sport the "Deal With It" shades upon victory.
  • Covert Pervert: Downplayed, but her main objection to the commander groping her is that they shouldn't do it in public. She also welcomes the commander back from sorties by offering him a massage.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: The commander himself calls her "Clevebro" if she's set as secretary, much to her chagrin. She also hates being called "Clevedad".
  • Even the Girls Want Her: During the anniversary, Helena mentions a rumor going around that "[Cleveland] can wrap any girl around [her] little finger", implying that many of the other shipgirls are attracted to her. There's also Ship Tease between Helena and her.
  • Grin of Audacity: Sports one constantly, even when sleeping in chibi form.
  • Historical In-Joke: Mentions in one of her idle lines that she likes trees. This references the fact that she spent almost the entire war providing coastal support for ground forces, and saw very little combat against other ships.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She's even more of a tomboy than her sisters, to the point of having masculine nicknames such as "Clevedad" or "Clevebro". However, she's not a big fan of those nicknames, and in her oath skin, expresses joy over wearing a frilly wedding dress. She's also rather upset that her formal wear is a suit while everyone else gets dresses.
  • Utility Party Member: Her Raid Order skill increases the damage dealt by the entire party on top of her awesome anti-air with the Anti-Air Mode skill.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Has very patriotic socks, with red and white stripes at the top and a star-strewn field of blue below.
  • Wingding Eyes: Her base skin's idle animation has her pupils change to dollar signs. Unlike most uses of this trope, this seems to be simply a joke and there's not much (if any) of the usual association with greed, since her only real mention of money is her introduction of "time is money!" In her promise skin, she even throws money away in her idle animation in the dorm. Perhaps it's referencing that she's a good farming ship (as she is in World of Warships before she was bumped up to Tier 8 after CA/CL line split).
