Added DiffLines:

* BiTheWay: It is ambiguous if this was this trope or IfItsYouItsOkay, but on one occasion when Matty kissed Perfume while both were in their [[{{InvoluntaryShapeshifting}} female forms]], Perfume expressed a preference Matthew... but didn't seem entirely opposed to the idea of some [[{{YuriGenre}} girl on girl]]. When she discovered it was a ruse on Matty's part to get rid of unwanted suitor Taylor Kuntz, she was [[{{WomanScorned}} pissed]].
** It is possible BiTheWay may also apply to Nicole Porter, who has been shown to be romantically linked with a male character (Jason) but definitely seemed curious for more information on what it was like when she discovered that Matty Hayes was a [[{{BlatantLies}} lesbian]]. [[note]] Nicole is unaware that "Matty" is actually a heterosexual male who at the time [[{{InvoluntaryShapeshifter}} just happens to be]] in a female body. [[/note]]
** This isn't greatly explored as ''Boy Scouts ½'' is not an [[{{Lemon}} adult]] work, but theoretically Matthew Atanian's sexuality could be defined as a strange inversion of bisexual: His preference is exclusively towards females, but he himself could be either gender in a relationship.
** ''In Japan Origins: Megumi'' left it ambiguous as to if Meg didn't return Chris's feelings because she didn't feel the same, or because of the inconvenience of the timing.

** {{Crossover}}: With the titular boarding house now being the residence of many of the characters, MaisonIkkoku is introduced into what had previously been just a Manga/RanmaOneHalf fic.
*** WordOfGod says that all other fictitious works by [[Creator/RumikoTakahashi Takahashi Rumiko]] still exist in Universe as fiction. Takahashi-sensei must have just had a major creative slump between UruseiYatsura and Manga/InuYasha.

''[[http://bs1-2.weebly.com Boy Scouts ½]]'' [[note]] (pronounced, ''Boy Scouts One Half'') [[/note]] is a fan fiction series, set in the same universe as [[Creator/RumikoTakahashi Takahashi Rumiko's]] ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', which follows an entirely original group of characters who are Boy Scouts living in Massachusetts, some of whom are a group of {{Self Insert}}ed MartyStu characters. After a trip to China, five of the members of Troop 192 find themselves suffering curses from the same training ground of cursed springs that some of the ''Ranma ½'' characters had once visited.

** MartyStu[[invoked]]: [[ThirtySuePileup Many of the characters]] are based on the authors or people they know. (And most of these are males, hence Marty Stu rather than MarySue.)
*** However, the typical idea of a Marty Stu is averted in that the AuthorAvatar characters are usually not presented in an idealized light.

* LineOfSightName & SueDonym: When Matthew Atanian needs an alias for his female form, the name he comes up with combines both of these. That name is Matty Hayes: Matty, as he never liked being called that thinking it sounded too feminine; and Hayes, after a character in the ''{{Robotech}}'' novel he was reading at the time.

* AnimeChineseGirl: Perfume. She is, after all, from the same village as [[RanmaOneHalf Shampoo]].

* TheBarnum: Nicole Porter, being an {{Expy}} of the [[RanmaOneHalf original work's]] Tendo Nabiki, qualifies for this. It seems to stem partially from a MoneyFetish, although she does seem to like to contribute some of her gains to household expenses. (She and her sisters are orphans, and otherwise survive only on inheritances and her elder sister's income.) Her monetary pursuits have certainly made her quite the HighSchoolHustler.

* DirtyOldMan: A youthful version in the form of Derek from Troop 180. DirtyKid does not apply, as Derek is an older teenager and knows ''exactly'' what he is doing. His tendencies can be quite excessive, and were even weaponized on one occasion. Derek is one of the characters based on a real person, but any such tendencies the real person had were exaggerated to turn the fictional version of him into an {{Expy}} of the [[RanmaOneHalf original work's]] DirtyOldMan character, Happosai.

** The Porter sisters are expies of the Tendo Sisters from ''RanmaOneHalf'', with Sarah being the [[{{Tsundere}} tsundere]] love interest of the main character (like Akane), Kirstin being the cooking and cleaning caregiver (like Kasumi), and finally Nicole being the money lover with questionable principles (like Nabiki). This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] with the first names of Kirstin and Nicole starting with the same letters as those they are expies of.

** Despite being based on a real person, the character of Derek Provost is also an Expy of [[RanmaOneHalf Happosai]].
** Taylor Kuntz shares his initials with [[RanmaOneHalf Kuno Tatewaki]] and is basically what you would get if you took away Kuno's pretension of class. (These two were also lampshaded in an Anime Deathmatch story.)

** GenderFlip: The [[RanmaOneHalf original work]] had as its main character Ranma, a male who could become a female. ''Boy Scouts ½'' continued this by having the character of Matthew Atanian similarly cursed as a male who would transform into a female. But then later in the series we meet Perfume who explores the Gender Flipped version of this: she is naturally a female, but fell into a spring that curses her to transform into a male.

** OriginalCharacter: In the sense that they are not characters from the [[RanmaOneHalf original work]]? Almost all of them! In the sense that they are ''completely'' original? Well... that may be a slightly smaller list... (That is, if one does not consider characters based on or inspired by real persons as "original characters.")

* GenderBender: A given with a RanmaOneHalf fic. One of the main characters, Matthew Atanian, fell into the same cursed spring as Ranma and thus has the same curse. A later introduced character is a woman, Perfume, suffering from the inverse curse. See Involuntary Shapeshifting below.

* HouseWife: With Sarah Porter having to work to support herself and her sisters, and Nicole Porter more interested in her own shady business dealings, Kirstin Porter is left to tend to household matters. She does not seem upset by this arrangement, which makes sense for a character who is an {{Expy}} of YamatoNadeshiko [[RanmaOneHalf Tendo Kasumi]].

* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: It ''is'' a RanmaOneHalf fic. Thus, characters have curses by which they transform into alternate forms when splashed with cold water, and revert to their natural forms with hot water.

** WordOfGod in the author's notes from the third ''Boy Scouts ½ in Japan'' story even provides {{Fanon}} explanation for why, in [[RanmaOneHalf the original work]], Shampoo and the Jusenkyo Guide speak this way but Moose and Cologne do not. It is presumed that characters who speak with such heavy accents studied multiple languages, at least English and Japanese, and thus have sufficient working knowledge but not proficiency. Meanwhile, Moose studied only Japanese, so is proficient in that language but will be unable to speak directly with any of the Boy Scouts ½ characters who only know English. Meanwhile, Cologne being as old and wise as she is, is able to speak both Japanese and English fluently.

* AlternateContinuity: One of the segments of the story ''Of Possible Alternatives'' features the main ''Perspectives'' cast suffering from [[{{RanmaOneHalf}} Jusenkyo curses]]. Weather this is instead of or in addition to the cursed characters of the main series is not made clear.
