* TemptingFate: In Chapter 12, Ranma makes note of the convenience that all of the villains' plots seem to occur in the general area where he and the Senshi live, and that if any occurred on the other side of the city, none of them would notice (see TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse). Sure enough, Jadeite [[GenreSavvy figures this out]] and targets a different city altogether, namely Moscow.

** Grandpa Hino, though he never goes beyond relatively harmless flirting and has his fair share of PetTheDog and CoolOldGuy moments.

* TheBully: Happosai's inner monologue as he's being [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown thrashed by the heroes]] reveals that his sole motivation for learning martial arts was so that he could use his abilities to bully others into indulging his hedonistic desires.

* TheHedonist: Played ''very'' darkly with Happosai.

* ApocalypseHow: Right in the first chapter, Pluto reveals a triple whammy. [[spoiler: After the Black Moon Crisis, Usagi got the crazy idea to destroy all evil in man's hearts, resulting in obedient drones with no drive to reproduce, essentilly a planetwide SterilityPlague. Then, when most of mankind had already died out, they decided to overload the Silver Crystal to force an EarthShatteringKaboom to end their misery. Too bad that by now clinically depressed Hotaru decided right then it's her job to put them out of their misery and points down the Silence Glaive...]] Little wonder Pluto never wants this future from happening again.

** Konetsu. Sweet mercy, Konetsu.



* DeadpanSnarker: Ranma and Mamoru are masters of this, but the Senshi all get their chance to add on it as well. Even the bad guys snark on occassion at absurd canon plot points.

* DramaPreservingHandicap[=/=]GodzillaThreshold: Setsuna. She admits that she's very, ''very'' powerful- enough so that she manages to impress anyone who witnesses her fight (not to mention she's the Senshi of Time and can see the future), but limits her involvement specifically because of it to extreme emergencies. This is due to her power being so great, her open intervention in a conflict would mean the enemy would overreact and pull out all the stops, ''heavily'' escalating the war.



** Ukyo had ones while hunting Ranma. She considers it a sign that her concept of gender identity is breaking down when these start to involve women, but her re-embracing her feminine side seems to have "Fixed" that, in her words.



** Venus herself as the Senshi of Love of couse shows that heart can be used to beat down your enemies. [[spoiler: Since "heart" also means "mind", she is immune against direct manipulation of her mind, but sadly not illusions.]]

* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Ami's mom thinks of Ami's Senshi activities as her daughter finally getting a social life with a boyfriend, friends and joining a sports club. Note that Ami ''hates'' lying to her mother. [[spoiler: Now averted with not only Ami's but also Usagi's parents, who now know what their daughters are up to.]]

** Also the end reaction after Earth got de-populated thanks to Usagi. So they decide to commit suicide, too bad [[spoiler: Hotaru beats them to it]].
** [[spoiler: Also Genma's reaction to the Neko-Ken not being a martial arts techinque and he pointlessly tortured his son for nothing.]]

* OvershadowedByAwesome: Akane canít really compare to the Senshi in battle. On the other hand, she's far stronger than them outside of their powers, not to mention more skilled in purely martial arts based combat.



** A group of women who have no qualifications apart from finishing high school come to rule the world. Great? Not really. People resent them for not lifting a finger when a disaster decimated the world and then simply returned later to claim control by force. They are ill-suited for ruling as well and everything goes down the drain.

People resent them for not lifting a finger when a disaster decimated the world and then simply returned later to claim control by force. They are ill-suited for ruling as well and everything goes down the drain. In addition, the people of Tokyo don't appreciate having a large chunk of their city being bulldozed in order to make way for the palace.



** Martial Artist vs. Speeding Truck. Truck wins, martial artist has extended stay in hospital.
** It's totally okay to stalk someone for years and try to murder them because they ruin your life? Nope! Setsuna shows Ryoga a BadFuture of what would happen had he succeeded in his goal.



** Senshi always screw up the plans? Make a plan where they won't even notice until it is too late.

** GunsAreWorthless[=?=] Actually not; the Amazons can testify to this. Ranma and Ryoga also are not stupid enough to do anything foolish when a gun is pointed at them, nor Konatsu's stepfamily are stupid enough to try and resist when ''lots'' of guns are pointed at them by Tokyo Metropolitan Police.

Ranma and Ryoga also are not stupid enough to do anything foolish when a gun is pointed at them, nor Konatsu's stepfamily are stupid enough to try and resist when ''lots'' of guns are pointed at them by Tokyo Metropolitan Police. True, conventional weapons don't work as well against Youma or other supernatural baddies, but against normal people they work ''just fine.''
** Happosai molesting girls is played deadly seriously, showing just how traumatic this would be.
** People point out that Pantyhose Taro can just get his name changed at a government office, he ''probably'' didn't need to track down Happosai. Not to mention that his mother was a moron, telling everyone his extremely embarrassing name (making his social life absolute hell) and honoring the wishes of a man who turned him into a monster.
** It's only given brief mention, but the Senshi with odd hair colors (blonde, red, or even Michiru's oddly colored hair) have put strain on the families in the past, ranging from worries that something was wrong with their child, to accusations that their partners cheated on them. Haruka's family especially dislikes her blonde hair; unlike the other examples, which are explained away as natural results of having ancestors with those colors generations ago or harmless genetic glitches, her blonde hair is proof that members of their family interbred with non-Japanese immediately following World War II.



* {{Reincarnation}}: Kasumi is the reincarnation of [[spoiler:Queen Serenity.]]

to:

* {{Reincarnation}}: Kasumi is the reincarnation of [[spoiler:Queen Serenity.]]]] The other Senshi are reincarnations as well, of course.



* ScareEmStraight: A ''very'' reluctant Pluto gets forced to use what she describes as the extreme measure of using her power to show Ryoga what would happen if he actually killed Ranma; the [[RealityEnsues realization that the Man]] would see him as a dangerous stalker who violently killed someone in his way and hang him no matter what kind of Hell he'd seen made him realize that vengeance just ain't worth it.
* ScrewYouElves: Running afoul of the Chinese Communist Party ends up badly for the Chinese Amazons. Super-cool martial arts don't work against a hailstorm of bullets. By the story present, their village is thoroughly conquered and humiliated, the influx of new ideas killing off their barbaric culture. Worse, outside ideas like "Gender Equality" have the village on the verge of a gender-based civil war, and their ancient enemies (such as the Musk) are signing up with the Chinese Government.

Mu-Tsu openly states that if given the choice, he wouldn't return home as he has nothing to tie him back there (no living family that he doesn't hate, and his father moved away at the first opportunity).



* TrainingFromHell: The Senshi certainly think that what they're being put through by Khu-Lon is this. Played straight with Ranma, though, even after the trip.

*** Pluto's green hair is not natural. It's the result of the strong magic she's been using for so long.

** [[spoiler: Konatsu's step-family and all the crap they have done is also brought to its logical, horrific conclusion. All of a sudden it's not funny at all.]]



* GunsAreWorthless: Averted ''hard''. While Tokyo police with their small arms simply doesn't have the firepower needed to take down Youma, guns are still incredibly dangerous. Guns are ''deadly'' to all human characters, the Senshi needing their magic protect them from small arms. [[spoiler: When Kotetsu aims a gun at Ranma and Ryoga, both were not stupid enough to do anything foolish.]]



** When [[spoiler: a Daimon is about to kill Ami, Ranma finally manages to weaponize his ki. The emotion used? Love.]]



** Subverted with the Hunters as well. They make no difference at all between genders.



** Mikado Sanzenin. His misuse of his mind-control powers has made him very arrogant. While it kept him pfrom prison, he's a social pariah.
