** And shortly after we have Kodachi ''exhausting Ranma'' in a Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics fight. Kodachi herself, while defeated, was relatively fresh.
* Kodachi's debut arc is full of awesome moments for her:
** When we first see her, she's about to be attacked by four bandaged opponents. Ranma is about to intervene to protect her... Then has to intervene to protect ''them'', as Kodachi [[SingleStrokeBattle knocked them down in one hit]] (not one hit each, one hit for ''them all'') and has decided to whip them.
*** TheReveal about the attackers' identity makes this even more awesome: they are the top members of Furinkan's Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics team, that Kodachi has already beat the crap out of once (hence the bandages: they were covering their bruises). That's why she had decided to whip them: because if they didn't get they were OvershadowedByAwesome the first time, she wouldn't go easy on them.
** Furinkan's Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics team got Akane to sub for them and fight Kodachi... Meaning that, under Kodachi's warped code of honor, she's now a legitimate target, and Akane has to fight for her life before her attacker decides she's decent enough to be annihilated on the ring and leaves.
** Akane got injured from training too much, and Ranma subbed in. By the end of the battle, Ranma is about to collapse from sheer ''fatigue'' at keeping up with Kodachi without using directly hands and feet-and Ranma is the one who ''won''.
** Some of Kodachi's techniques during the tournament fight, showing up both her skills and just how much of a CombatPragmatist she is (and what kind of insane sport Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics, as all these techniques are legal if not stated otherwise):
*** The Thousand Clubs: she grabs two attacks and attacks with such speed it looks she's using twenty clubs... Then it's revealed she ''was'' using twenty clubs. ''Somehow''.
*** Later she attacks with a club with pop-up spikes. This one is actually illegal... But she's so good she ''still'' manages to get away with it.
*** Suddenly she starts attacking with her ribbon as if it was a steel bar... Then she scores a hit, and it turns out it ''was'' a steel bar that she was masquerading as a ribbon. And she hits hard enough to ''hurt Ranma''.
*** Ranma uses the ribbon to grab a table and use it as flail. Kodachi easily tops it by using ''her brother''.
*** In case she was thrown out of the ring, she had her entire club under it to ''move it'' and prevent her from actually falling. [[CrazyPrepared She wasn't actually expecting to need it, but just in case...]]
*** After the ring is destroyed and only the ring posts remain, Ranma uses the ribbon to attach herself to the ceiling and hit with a flying kick... And Kodachi just ''stays there with a smug grin'': either she had instantly calculated that the length of the ribbon would prevent Ranma from actually hitting her, or she just expected to be kicked and ''win by disqualification'', as bare-handed attacks are forbidden.
*** After Ranma comes back to her ring post, Kodachi reveals that she has effectively won, as she has manipulated Ranma in exhausting all her weapons and now cannot legally attack anymore, while Kodachi still has her ribbon and her second has a few items. Also, she's ''fresher than Ranma''. Ranma wins anyway by destroying the post Kodachi was on and using its pieces to not touch the ground before Kodachi falls down, but it was one of her hardest victories-and she's visibly panting.

* In the same vein, as the above Happosai's debut. Before the series, Genma and Soun finally escaped him by getting him drunk on barrels of sake. They then sealed him up in the barrel, chained it up, hurled it into a cave, tossed a sizable bundle of lit dynamite inside with him, then closed up the cave with a massive boulder wrapped in a [[ZigzagPaperTassel shimenawa]] before it exploded. About a decade later, a lightning storm topples a tree and knocks the boulder away, whereupon Happosai heads to Tokyo, none the worse for wear. When Happosai arrives at the Tendo household, Genma and Soun list in terror what they did to him while blubbering it's impossible for him to be there.

* Early on, we learned of Ranma and Ryouga's massive stamina when a "practice" session, in reality Ryouga trying to cripple Ranma and Ranma fighting for his life, lasted all night. Ryouga and Ran a literally fought for hours before Ranma could score a decisive victory.

** Also for Kuno, because we see how ridiculously powerful ''he'' is: enough to destroy a statue with the ''air pressure'' of his attacks (sure, Herb topped that by destroying a ''mountain'', but he used a lot of [[KamehameHadoken ki attacks]]), or make Ranma cry in pain when the Akane touches the one place Kuno scored a glancing hit. [[TheWorfEffect Ranma's easily defeating him as soon as he became serious serves to drive home how powerful Ranma is]].

* How about the first two times, of many, that Ranma hands Kuno his ass. They are pretty much the only time Ranma and Kuno have a fight that is even halfway serious. And it shows just how ridiculously powerful Ranma is
