The Rhincodon-class (リンコドン級, Rinkodon-kyū) is a battleship class [1].


As perhaps suggested by the name of the class, the ship's design resembles that of a whale shark. It has two dry docks, one in the bow and one built into the lower fin. A radar antenna is located on the right side of the upper fin. Four boosters located at the stern, in angled fins around the main engine.[2]

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

The Rhincodon's exact combat characteristics are not fully known but they are likely at least the minimum required of a battleship class. According to Schnitzer, the Rhincodon is a good ship [1].


Judging by Schnitzer's comments, the Rhincodon had been in service for a while before the events of Abyss of Hyperspace, as it was said that it wasn't the latest model of ship [1].

Abyss of HyperspaceEdit

A Rhincodon-class battleship, Hughroque, was involved in the events concerning the search for Professor Mugen's legacy, having been commandeered by the Yggdrasil Group while it was undergoing once-in-three-years in-dock maintenance [1].

Known ShipsEdit

  • Mira Stellar Force (ミラ星系軍, Mira Seikei-gun)/Yggdrasil fleet
    • Hughroque[verification required] (ヒュローク, Hyurōku)



  • The class's name, Rhincodon, is that of a genus of which the whale shark (Rhincodon typus) is the sole member.
