* AndIMustScream: Pluto finds her time being stuck in the time loop this, on account of how as soon as she becomes relevant to the timeline, her mind is overridden and she is forced to play out her part in the loop the same way until the universe ends again, and her time before that is watching helplessly knowing the tragedy that is to come.



* BoredWithInsanity: Happened to Setsuna while stuck in the time loop; she says that she went insane and back so many times her mind is too numb to go mad any longer.



* TheGlassesGottaGo: Defied, as Naru notes that Umino's looks improve when he gets more modern pair of glasses. Makoto also notes that Mu Tzu would look better if he got a more slimmer pair of glasses. However, Ranma is for some reason disturbed when Ami wears her reading glasses.

Makoto also notes that Mu Tzu would look better if he got a more slimmer pair of glasses. frames.

* KnightTemplarParent: [[spoiler: Minako's parents, sadly enough. When they find out what their daughter is up to, they get angry and demand she stop, causing Minako to run away in tears. Pluto gives them a stern lecture on why what they do is necessary, but those broken bonds won't be fixed any time soon.]]



* 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. Venus' parents are still out of the loop, though.]]

* 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. She also does this to Xian-Pu, but of a much more limited form (as she was already leaning towards ''not'' killing Ranma).

It was all obviously just an illusion, but Pluto's explanation to Ryoga was that it all actually happened and she was forced to pull him out of a very bad timeline.

* SecretLegacy: Ranma is descended from a long line of demon hunters on his mother's side, but his grandfather (Nodoka's father) tried to break that cycle.



* ShoutOut: To improve her skills, Akane goes to a dojo that's run by a married couple: [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu and Chun-Li]].

** This Was a possible fate for [[spoiler:Chibi-Usa and Diana as well. But as of Chapter 30: The Mirror of Dreams, Part I - Morpheus, having the author's notes (seen below) confirm that due to multiple time loops occurring, TimeyWimeyBall is in play, Chibi-Usa and Diana's existence falling under this is now Subverted or outright Defied.]]

* 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.

* ReincarnationRomance: ''brutally'' deconstructed. Turns out that following the same pattern of behavior over and over again because that's what you did in the last life isn't healthy at all. In the original timeline, Usagi and Mamoru basically ceased to exist as their past-lives took over via memories, according to Pluto.

* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

** And Herb is set up for it during his appearance, with not only being locked, but told off by a bunch of people very capable of killing him if they use their full power, absolutely humiliated by Pluto in a fight, and is stuck in his cursed form for a year. It is also hinted that Musk society is close to tearing itself apart due to a pending succession crisis.


Added DiffLines:

** The Herb, Lime, and Mint, are not played comedically. While misogynistic in canon, their very culture, and how it colors how they are, and ups their jerkassery by taking it to its logical conclusion.

* AscendedExtra: Naru pretty much was a slightly more used extra in canon, who quickly faded into the background. Here however [[spoiler: things turn out very different when due to Setsuna's escape history got altered and a Senshi of Ceres comes into being. In the present, Naru is said Senshi.]]



* DemonicPossession:
** This of course is what happened to Hotaru in canon as well. However [[spoiler: Mistress 9 is forced out by excorcism - prepared thoroughly in order to not hurt Hotaru, or let Mistress 9 hurt her.]]
** Happens to [[spoiler: Ami]] curtosy of [[spoiler: Nehellenia forcing a spiritual parasite down her throat.]]



** Just to underline she does have a point, this is exactly what happens later after [[spoiler: the recovery of the Silver Crystal]].
* DreamWalker: Due to the Senshi, with exeption of Ami, being trapped in their nightmares due to [[spoiler: Nehellenia]], this is the only way to get them out. Needless to say that the DreamLand is an especially bizarre place.



** [[spoiler: Ranma meets Hotaru even before the Silver Crystal is recovered. It's a brief meeting however, no names given. She properly introduced in Chapter 21.]]

* EldritchAbomination: While Queen Metaillia also fulfills the criteria, it's the description of Pharaoh 90 which truly is this trope. He looks... quite bizarre and his personality is not helping.

* EvilVersusEvil: Since the Dark Kingdom wants to conquer Earth while the Death Busters want to serve it to the Pharaoh as a food source, conflict is inevitable once they start to step on each other's toes.



* HoistByHisOwnPetard: When things are going bad for her, Mistress 9 uses knowlege stolen from Hotaru's former life to summon [[spoiler: the Silence Glaive. Too bad for her that the glaive does recognise her as evil. What follows is quite lethal to her.]]



* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: In order to save Ami from a monster that has taken over her body, they need to find her soul and encourage her to resist. Needless to say, Ami's mind is a really interesting place, especially since everything is translated to an understandbale frame of reference.

* WhatAnIdiot: some of the sillier aspects, challenges, or events are rightly mocked as the result of people being stupid.
** Akari's grandfather's declaration of "To date Akari you must defeat a Sumo Pig in combat" leads to him getting mocked all over the countryside (not to mention the trouble with hospitals and the police).
** Pantyhose Taro's mom claims that Pantyhose should love and honor his name and Happosai, since Happosai was the midwife for her. Unfortunately, Happosai ''then'' decided to bathe the boy in a cursed spring that turns him into a horrible monster and gave him the name ''Pantyhose Taro.'' Taro's mom then spread the name and how awesome Happosai was all around their home village, rendering him a social pariah. While Taro tries to defend his mom (because she's, well, his ''mom''), even he admits that once it's put to him that way that there might be something to the neighbors staying ''far'' away from her.
** Ryu Kumon's dad decided to practice the scroll that Genma gave clear warnings on as "This technique is very dangerous and is designed to break things," within the Dojo he lived in. The Dojo subsequently collapsed on top of him, killing him instantly. Ryu compounded this error by then trying to seek vengeance on Genma, blaming him for his dad's death (even though Genma openly proclaims that it was Mr. Kumon's own fault, and for once, he's not trying to weasel his way out).
** Xian-pu has ''lots'' of anger thrown her way for giving Ranma the Kiss of Death, since the last time it was used it basically condemned the Amazons to a slow cultural death.
