* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Originally, no one would have seen [[spoiler: the Amazon Elders]] as threatening, despite knowledge of how dangerous they could be. They’re something of an OutOfContextVillain. Then we see what they actually do to [[spoiler: Mousse, Cologne, and Shampoo]] which requires the direct and immediate intervention of Sailor Moon, Ranma, and Sailor Mercury, and is still something of a pyrrhic victory.

* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Heavily averted. The girls start off capable, but become more so as Ranma puts them through their paces. Also, Akane gets the benefit of this retroactively when it’s pointed out that despite no longer being at the top of Nerima, she’s still better than 95% of all other martial artists, capable of wiping the floor with Makoto [[spoiler: or Haruka]] in terms of strength and skill.

* AngstWhatAngst: Averted. Ranma is still dealing with being locked long after it happens, though she does find some measure of peace. The fact that everyone around her is unconditionally supportive helps.



** Several jokes are made about Ranma being a MagicalGirl

* DistantFinale: In three parts. One covers the distant future Usa returns to, the second is a letter from Sailor Pluto to her successor, explaining the BecauseOfANail, and the third is after the fight with the Deathbusters.

* MoralEventHorizon: What the Amazon elders do to Mousse, Shampoo, and Cologne would probably [[EvenEvilHasStandards sicken even the Black Moon Family.]]
** Cologne [[spoiler: has her ki sealed, which by itself would cause her body to slowly fail, and she is sentenced to be tortured to death, but not until after having to watch the punishments of the younger two.]]
** Shampoo [[spoiler: is locked into her cursed form as a cat and treated with herbal brainwashing that erases her human facilities while allowing her to retain knowledge of having once been human. It takes her a month to succumb, and they had to starve her to lower her resistance.]]
** Mousse: [[spoiler: arguably gets it the worst, for both being male and openly assaulting the council. He is beaten, and blinded when his glasses are shattered while on his face. Then he is locked in a cage in the open with only a loincloth, denied access to food, water, cleanliness, and medical care, and after letting his injuries fester for a while they use a pressure point that makes him think they have severed his hands.]]



* OneOfUs: Kasumi loves quoting Franchise/StarWars.
** Ranma likes Manga/DragonBall, and Usagi is a fan of Film/TheTerminator.



* StopHelpingMe: Most characters’ feeling towards Luna in the beginning. The moon cat genuinely means well, but she can be nagging and abrasive, and her damaged memory of the Silver Millennium means that she often puts down several of Artemis’s theories that turn out to be correct.
** Played with when Rei is criticizing Usagi. She tries to justify to herself that it’s to help Usagi become more like the Princess she’s supposed to be, ignoring the fact that it doesn’t actually help.



* WontTakeYesForananswer: [[spoiler: After yelling out the phrase and transforming into Lesser Mercury, Akane starts to berate Artemis for teasing her with the possibility of being a magical girl, only to stop when she realizes she is.]]

* IJustWantToBeSpecial: The Black Moon Family is composed of people who are Silverblind, and unable to use the Silver Millennium tech of the future, as well as denied the extended lifespans. It’s no one’s fault, anymore than being left-handed or colorblind is, but while the Silver Canfederation has put plenty of effort into developing Silverblind alternatives there are enough people who resent the accident of birth for Wiseman to recruit them.

* Foreshadowing: Ranma can’t believe that Usagi takes all the falls she does without being hurt. [[spoiler: It turns out she had gymnastics training in the past, which led to her awakening her ki, but losing a lot of fine motor control and balance.]]

* ItsNotyouItsMyEnemies: Not between two people, but this is why Ranma refuses to stay at the Shrine with Rei for very long—the chaos that follows him would eventually wreck it.

“BSSMRan 12 Xover. Ranma's life changes after Jusendo, mostly for the better, including an acceptance of the Curse. Life really throws him a curve when he aids the Sailor Senshi, only to be locked in girlform forever. But forever is a long time.”

* Determinator: In chapter 2 Ranma was almost literally dead on her feet when she grabbed a little girl and got her out of the youma’s crossfire. Then she came back to help still and took a second attack in Mercury’s defense.

Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: When Ranma is forced to prove her ModeLock to a hostile school crowd, she protests that she's just as much a girl as they are, to which Akane adds, "and better built to boot!", something Ranma used to insult Akane in the first volume of the original manga.

** Of course, the people being able to see through it becomes a running gag, [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Ranma's comment, "Do those disguise fields actually work on anyone?"

* Hypocrite: Oddly, a way that works out in the protagonists’ favor. Akane is and remains mildly homophobic. Because [[spoiler: Ranma and Usagi]] are her friends, she overlooks the relationship, but Haruka and Michiru get no such considerations.
