* Akari, Ryoga's Manga-only love-interest often gets broken up with Ryōga or killed off to make way for Ryōga/Akane, Ryōga/Uky&#333, or Ryōga/Ranma.

Essentially '''every''' character in ''RanmaOneHalf'' has experienced both this trope and DracoInLeatherPants at one point or another, often with one portrayal arising as a backlash to another.

*** It should be noted that unless you've read the manga you wouldn't know Akari or Konatsu even exist.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, Ranma's detractors (mostly detractors who also happen to be fans of Genma) have gone so far as to literally ''make Genma's arguments for him'': they think that Ranma is to blame for problems that were clearly caused by Genma himself abusing his parental authority to burden Ranma with messes (apparently on account of Ranma not being proactive enough to solve those messes), and they even excuse the abusive Nekoken training from hell on account that Genma sincerely believed he was being useful. The idea that Takahashi deliberately designed Genma to be a jerk for comedic value, and Genma's parenting strategies ''were outright condemned in the manga'', doesn't occur to them.

* In contrast, [[DracoInLeatherPants Ranma's own arrogance and personality flaws are frequently overlooked]] because of his [[TheWoobie harsh childhood]] and [[PillarsOfMoralCharacter the many demands honor has placed upon him]]. This leads other fans to remind the readers of the times that he's stretched honor to his advantage, performed petty con artistry and otherwise holds responsibility for some of his troubles... but they also go too far once in a while, portraying him as overtly evil, spiteful and malicious instead of the JerkWithaHeartOfGold he is in canon.

* Ukyō is also made a LoveMartyr, much at the expense of Akane (two words: Mike Rhea). In others, she's as bashed as Shampoo by "Saint Akane" fans. There was even one fic in which she was turned into a ''dog''.

** It doesn't help that Takahashi herself is inconsistent on Shampoo's personality. In one chapter she'll show some nice qualities, in another she'll be a total bitch who doesn't give a crap whether Mousse or Akane are alive.



** Then there's the militancy of many Ryōga/Ukyō shippers. While much of their violence is directed against the other prominent characters, Ryōga and Ukyō's respective love interests (Akari and Konatsu)... if they're lucky, they're either ignored entirely or randomly paired with other folks for the sheer sake of [[PortmanteauCoupleName RyoKyo]]. ''If'' they're lucky.

* Being the {{Tsundere}} official love interest of what is possibly [[LauncherOfAThousandShips the most-shipped fictional character in history]], Akane Tendo is frequently flanderized to the point of '''[[AxCrazy literal ]]'''[[AxCrazy psychosis]] (''The Bitter End'', anyone?). Even after the end of the manga, many fics depict her relationship with Ranma as suddenly and inexplicably taking a turn for the worse. This has led fans of her character to emphasize her compassionate side, sometimes overcorrecting to the point of "Saint Akane" who is an absolute LoveMartyr.
* On the other hand, Shampoo is often written by fans as being heartless, psychotic, downright evil, and willing to kill Akane ''and'' Mousse in cold blood and VERY violently in front of Ranma to get her "Airen"'s love. While this does have some basis in canon where her personal motto is "obstacle is for killing," many of these fanon depictions of her get ridiculously over-the-top.
