* We also have him expressing ''genuine'' compassion for a rival (when he often mocks and teases them) after his first fight with [[spoiler: Mousse in the circus, after Shampoo cruely berates Mousse and this triggers the guy's MotiveRant that makes almost every witness bawl.]] What makes this even more impressive is the fact, in the last half-hour or so in universe, [[spoiler: Mousse]] has: tried to kidnap Ranma's fiancee, tried to murder Ranma, successfully kidnapped Ranma's fiancee, threatened to turn Ranma's fiancee into a duck, then tried to either murder Ranma again, turn Ranma himself into a duck, or both. And yet Ranma still manages to genuinely feel sorry for [[spoiler: Mousse]] instead of trying to enjoy the fact that [[spoiler: Mousse]] [[KickTheSonOfABitch got some pre-emptive kickings for being such a pain in the ass]].
* Let's not forget that scene on the ledge near Jusenkyo from the manga's final volume [[spoiler: when Ranma thought Akane was dead. ''"All this just 'cause you wanted to save me? It would have been better if it were me. You should have let me die. But you're always butting in... Why did you have to get involved? Damn, Akane. You fool. Why didn't you let me go? (punches himself) I'm sorry, that's not what I meant. What I'm trying to say is... thank you. I'm so sorry, Akane. I'm so awkward with words. There were so many things I always wanted to tell you but I could never get the words out. Over and over again, I kept trying to tell you how I really felt, but it always came out wrong. I just ended up bothering you and making you angry. But that was never what I meant to do. Wake up, Akane. There's something I need to tell you. I've waited too long to say it, but it can't wait another moment. Akane? Can't you hear me? Please, Akane. I need you to hear me now... I wanted to tell you (tear drops on Akane's face) I wanted to tell you I love you!!"'' Though we're not sure if he said the L-word out loud, he screams Akane's name]] making it abit of a tear-jerker as well. But really, who can remember this and ''not'' feel even the slightest tug on their heart?
* After being placed in the middle of Akane's jealousy and Nabiki's greed, Ranma attempts to take Nabiki on a terrible date. Nabiki tries to use this to make the couple make up with each other, but it almost disastrously backfires. [[HilarityEnsues Eventually]], Ranma [[MistakenDeclarationofLove accidently]] ends up [[http://mangafox.me/manga/ranma_1_2/v17/c010/14.html powerfully hugging and declaring "his love" to Akane]]. Soon Ranma and Akane are left alone. An awkward and exhausted Ranma wants to go back home but Akane wants to continue the date. After a pause, Ranma gives her the flowers intended for Nabiki.

* In the ''The One To Carry On'' [=OAV=], Ryoga is struggling with his emotions as he trains Akane for a rematch with her opponents. On the one hand, he ''oh so desperately'' wants to help her (implying that it's really for her sake rather than [[DoggedNiceGuy to get in her good graces]].) On the other, if she loses then the Dojo, and by extension her [[ArrangedMarriage bethrothal to Ranma]], goes to someone else. On the eve of the fated match, he watches her sleep as he tries to sort out his priorities. In one of the best cases of SuperlativeDubbing, Ryoga realizes that by staying with her, he will ultimately sabotage her chances, and he'd rather see her win even if he loses his chance to court her. He then [[WalkingTheEarth departs to clear his mind]], content in knowing that he helped her in her time of need:

Turns out she was making a pie to celebrate the 2 year anniversary of Ranma and Genma living in her house. [[spoiler: Too bad it's accidently destroyed by Ranma immediately after it leaves the oven and is finally finished. This leads to one of the lowest points of their relationship ever.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Another noteworthy thing in this episode, you actually see Nabiki feeling guilty. NABIKI of all people. She actually felt bad for almost tearing her sister apart from Ranma. She ended up being satisfied with the end even though she didn't get any money out of it.

* Upon defeating Prince Herb, a major enemy -- the first bona fide ''lethal'' adversary he had ever faced, and which had Akane wracked with worry -- Ranma and the others sneak into the Tendo home's bath to change back to their normal forms, to fulfill Ranma's promise that they next time she saw him, he'd be a man. Akane catches them, and is on the verge of tears as she berates him for sneaking in without telling her. Ranma responds in his [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold usual manner]], Akane stares at him for a moment... and crushes him in a sincere, heartfelt embrace that completely disarms him, all while she cries and welcomes him home. It was their first sign of love in the manga.

-> '''Akane:''' I'm glad we're going home together, Ranma. Sorry for making you worry.
** Cue LuminescentBlush from Ranma, with his heartfelt, unspoken thoughts in the background of the panel. He still CanNotSpitItOut, but this is one of the most unambiguously tender moments in the entire manga. [[http://www.ourmanga.com/Ranma/278/RM26-179 See for yourself.]] And the corresponding [=OVAs=] are very well done, too.

* In episode 37 Ranma ends up going through a whole series of events to stop Akane from seeing a picture that looks like he's about to kiss Kodachi. Akane, upon realizing this is the reason he didn't eat her food during the whole thing (although everyone's distaste towards it didn't help) runs off in tears. Ranma finally explains the whole situation and then eats almost all of the cookies she made, and calls them good. Ranma manages to hide from her that they were terrible and left him sick. He did all this, just to make her happy again. ''Daaaaaaw.''

* Mousse gets one in the final manga arc. [[spoiler: He has the chance to make Shampoo his love slave and all he has to do is make sure he's the first one she sees comming out of the egg. He has an ImagineSpot them as a happy couple; the only thing he's wanted the entire series. When Shampoo bursts from the egg, he pulls out a mirror and she sees only her reflection.]] He kicks himself for it immediately afterward but it proves he really does love Shampoo and wouldn't take advantage of her.

* In one of the sweetest and most realistic moments this troper ever read, after being placed in the middle of Akane's jealously and Nabiki's greed, Ranma attempts to take Nabiki on a terrible date, while Nabiki has Akane entrapped in her own web of lies. [[HilarityEnsues Eventually]], Ranma and Akane are left alone, without anything to say. Ranma then produces a bouquet of flowers.

* For this troper, while it may be the shipper in him, Shampoo proving that she loves Ranma so much that she will give the KissOfDeath to her own little sisters-in-all-but-blood during the "Two, Too Violent Girls!" episode in order to protect him is this, if not a little [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Awesome/Ptitlegynukzwikxmd Awesome]].

* In the chapter "Stand Up, Ranma!", after Ranma tries to use the Hiryu Shoten Ha against Herb and fails, he gets hit so hard that he doesn't even try to get back up again. He simply lies there for a minute, until he hears Akane's voice. A picture of Akane with tears in her eyes appears in his mind. She's crying because he never came back, because he died in the fight against Herb. That's when Ranma realizes he has to become a man again and he has to make it back home for her sake. So, he pulls himself up off the ground once more, but now, with new motivation to succeed... This troper always found that really touching.

* Ryoga gets one in the Hiryuu Shoten Ha episode. After Happosai distributes flyers all over town stating "Ranma is weak!", Kuno, Mousse, The Principal and Gosunkugi (in the manga) gang up on Ranma to beat him. Ryoga steps in and knocks them all sky-high (though his reasoning for doing so is that he can't stand to see people bullying the weak, which Ranma is at the moment.)
