Misaka 1 (ミサカ一号 Misaka Ichi-gō?) was the first Sister, a clone of Misaka Mikoto, produced in the Level 6 Shift Project that was killed by Accelerator. Otherwise similar to all other clones, she is notable for having two slightly different death scenes in the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun manga.
Like all the Sisters, she had little emotion and never considered herself to be a living being. Being the first clone, she is apparently completely loyal to the experiment, eager to take part in the experiment and having very little concern for her own life. Due to the fact that she has yet to take part in a battle with Accelerator, she is completely ignorant of his powers.
Not much is known about her, though as a clone she was most likely produced a few months prior to her introduction in the story, and died during the course of the first battle with Accelerator.

Misaka 1 appears in a flashback by Accelerator during his fight with Kamijou Touma. Being the first clone, she is obviously killed in the battle, however, her death differs in the magazine version and the tankobon version of the manga.
In the original magazine version, Misaka 1, apparently without a weapon in sight, is already terribly beaten up by Accelerator, whom complains to the researchers present about her weakness. After they convince Accelerator that she is merely a doll that can be produced with a touch of a button, Accelerator eyes widened, and is presumed that she is killed by him.
In the tankobon version, the meeting between Accelerator and Misaka 1 is rather casual, with the latter introducing herself to him. Misaka 1 has a pistol, and as the experiment begins, Misaka 1 determines that the first one to attack is the winner, ignorant of Accelerator's powers. The bullet that hit Accelerator deflects off him instead of being redirected, and after a couple more shots, Accelerator has had enough, approaches Misaka 1 and launches her using her powers. He is surprised that she is so weak, and asks the researchers what's going on, to which they say to him that the clones are connected and that they will become more experienced in succeeding battles. Accelerator tries to leave, believing that the experiment is over, however, the scientist states that he needs to kill Misaka 1 in order for the experiment to be concluded. Instead of dying like in the magazine release, Misaka 1's death is due to her own hands. She tries to shoot Accelerator, acknowledging the orders of the researchers wanting to conclude the experiment with the pistol, but the shot is directed back to her. She later bleeds to death, commenting on her agonizing death.
Like all the Sisters, her ability is known as Radio Noise (
- Military training: Included in the information that was transferred with the Testament machines, like the other Sisters, she is proficient in combat methods such as the aforementioned use of specific weapons, can track targets, and shake off pursuers.
- Weapons & Gear: She wears a special set of goggles that enables her to see electron beams and magnetic field lines, which like all the Sisters she cannot perceive without aid. She uses a pistol, and is able to accurately hit Accelerator. She most likely can use both a F2000R Toy Soldier and a Metal Eater MX.
