Samidare was an Imperial Japanese Navy destroyer that was built at the Uraga Dock Company in 1934 and commissioned in 1937. The ship served in Destroyer Division 2 of Destroyer Squadron 4, IJN 2nd Fleet during the Attack on Pearl Harbor, and the ship assisted in the Japanese conquest of the East Indies. The ship was damaged while serving as a troop ship at the Battle of Guadalcanal, and the ship sunk USS Monssen (DD-436) at the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal in November 1942. Samidare later fought at Vella Lavella and Empress August Bay, and she was torpedoed by a US Navy submarine off Palau Island just two months after the Battle of the Philippine Sea.
