the first that comes to mind is - "Feel free to rely on us!" Ikazuchi added with a wink. - which is cute and all but fairly out of place in a first meeting with a complete stranger who may/may not be exactly friendly. none of the Fog characters, Iona not withstanding, have any reason to say such things to someone they just met. especially when, prior to the shutdown they were out doing routine 'war related activities' ala Tenryu and the destroyers on patrol out of Rabaul.

another, though at that point less of an issue under the circumstances is Oyodo's "Light cruiser Ōyodo. Please leave the fleet administration and supervision to me."

Tenryu's - "The name's Tenryū," she said; then, with a decorative flourish, she leveled the point of her sword at his throat and asked with a low chuckle, "Ya scared?" - seemed the most Fog-ish response though i cant say anything about her Kancolle persona, having made no appearancein the anime and not having played the game.

in the game context these kinds of statements are expected, the latter example
