* PublicBathhouseScene: Several times. Either because the Tendo home's bath breaks, or the scene involves Ryoga, who tends to visit public bathhouses during his travels. More often than not, a fight breaks out. Usually on the male side.
** The major example is when Ranma fight Happosai (that naturally want peep the girls, Akane included) in a sort of EscalatingWar with the two uses items from around the bathhouse, like towels and pails, as weapons. At the end, with all the cute girls gone (and it reavealed that Akane and nabiki wear smiwsuit for all the time), Happosai is tricked from Ranma female form.
* PunchClockVillain: Madame St. Paul is mainly an antagonist in the "Chardin" arc. In the anime the episode "Madame St. Paul's Cry for Help," she goes to Ranma and Akane for assistance because she believes something is wrong with Picolet.
* PunnyName: In the original Japanese the names of the Joketsuzoku characters were BilingualBonus {{Punny Name}}s -- Shanpū, Koron and Mūsu had Chinese-sounding names that coincidentally sounded like the English words for hygiene products; similarly, the Musk Dynasty warriors Haabu, Raimu, and Minto, whose ThemeNaming revolves around food ("herb", "lime", and "mint".) The English and Spanish translations play the pun straight by spelling out the English words.

* RealMenWearPink:
** Ranma Saotome is skilled enough at cooking that his [[SupremeChef mother]] is impressed, at least passably skilled at sewing, good at tea ceremony and gymnastics, and seems to take pride in his ability to [[TheTease wind guys up by acting cute]] when [[GenderBender in girl form]].
** This is more of a result of him spending most of his life on the road. He and his father had to know how to cook and sew just to get along. The teasing is just a variation of what Genma does. Instead of outright lying and stealing, he just manipulates people.
** In a nearly literal interpretation of the trope, Ranma can make a pastel orange shirt and little red bowtie look kinda badass.
* RedStringOfFate: a literal one of these shows up in the anime, whereupon Shampoo promptly tries to use it on Ranma
* RemovingTheRival: Ranma's female half [[BoundAndGagged ties up and gags Akane]] at one point in order to steal her role in their school's production of ''RomeoAndJuliet''.

* RooflessRenovation: This happens all the time to the Tendo home, usually caused by one of Ranma's martial artist rivals. The worst incident was caused when Rouge, a Chinese woman cursed to transform into an Asura, blew away half the roof with a fireball attack.

* LightGirlDarkBoy: Ranma normally has black hair and darker skin than "Ranko", who has red hair in the anime, and has had a variety of different hair colors, usually not black, in the colored covers of the manga.

%%* PlayboyBunny: Several times.

%%* * PlayboyBunny: Several times.This edges close to a RunningGag.
** The first instance of Female Ranma wearing such an outfit was in her first battle against [[BlindWithoutEm Mousse]]: trapped in female form, and already committed to a man-to-man duel, she dressed up in huge, baggy clothing to fool everyone into thinking she was male, and proceeded to entertain the crowd with simple magic tricks to humiliate the [[HyperspaceArsenal Hidden Weapons master]]. The coup de grâce was blowing up said clothing and coming out as a Playboy Bunny (just minus the ears) to infuriate Mousse even further, claiming that even "disguised" as a girl "he" would defeat him. It backfired spectacularly when Mousse [[ClothingDamage systematically destroyed her clothing]] and left her naked as a jaybird.
** The next instance is the use of the costume as a disguise ([[WigDressAccent with a wig]]) during the okonomiyaki-selling competition against [[WholesomeCrossdresser Tsubasa Kurenai]]. Justified in the manga, since the whole school knows about Ranma's curse, and thus she has to hide her identity to attract the boys (though she didn't need something so blatantly sexy, as Akane pointed out). Reconnected in the anime, where the curse is still a secret, to Ranma's deciding that she needs to play up her sex-appeal to match the {{kawaii}}ness of Tsubasa. An oversized suit of travel-worn boy's clothes doesn't really look good at the best of time, much less when it has to compete against a charmingly girly skirt.
** An anime-only storyline has Akane actually forcing female Ranma into one of these and start flirting with random guys on the street, in order to try and drum up some students for the dojo. [[HypocriticalHumor Akane promptly gets disgusted at Ranma's flirtations]].
** Female Ranma gets dressed this way again in a Hong Kong bar (and ''almost sold into slavery'' by Nabiki to pay her debts) in the Kinnosuke story arc of the manga.
** Averted during a SingleStrokeBattle against Happōsai, who was trying to force Ranma in a Playboy Bunny outfit... but he settles instead on a SailorFuku (on the ''male'' Ranma!).
** During the battle against the "un-sexy" kunōichi in the manga story arc introducing Konatsu, both Akane and Ukyō are kidnapped and [[GoGoEnslavement forced into Playboy Bunny costumes]].
** Creator/RumikoTakahashi is also fond of drawing Ranma and Akane in Playboy Bunny outfits for standalone artwork and chapter breaks.

* ThanksForTheMammary: And This may take some time...
** When Ranma first comes to the Tendō Dōjō, Nabiki proves Ranma's (apparent) gender by first poking her/him in the breast, then rubbing it. She later emphasizes her point by grabbing her/his breast again. And, when it seemed Ranma's bust size had increased in a late manga story, she proved it by... you guessed it! Groping [[GenderBender hir]] again.
** During [[KidSamurai Tatewaki]] Kunō's introduction,
he just freezes in shock plunges into a pool alongside [[GenderBender Ranma]]. His first hint that something was ''[[{{Pun}} amiss]]'' is when he holds onto the latter and dread, forgetting [[AccidentalPervert accidentally grabs her breast and squeezes]].
** An anime-only scene in the first season has Sōun try and break up a fight between Ranma and Genma, both in cursed form, by pushing them apart with a hand on each chest. He then promptly realises he's cupping Ranma's breast, and his daughters have seen him doing so. He tries
to let go!claim that it's NotWhatItLooksLike, and promptly catches a fist in the face from Ranma due to not letting go.
** In another episode of the anime, male Ranma stands up, half-faints, and braces himself. On [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/accidental_grope.png Akane's chest.]] As expected, a MegatonPunch follows.
** Sometime in the late manga (and an anime {{OAV}}), Ranma has to confront a [[LifeEnergy ki]] [[EnergyAbsorption draining]] teacher, Miss Hinako, whose technique can only be sealed away by hitting three [[PressurePoint shiatsu points]] on her chest and two on her back. Not much of a problem when Miss Hinako [[DualAgeModes is in the body of a eleven-year-old girl]]... a very big problem when she inevitably absorbs his BattleAura as he's hitting the points, causing her to grow up into a tall and [[MostCommonSuperpower buxom woman]], and he gets [[NotWhatItLooksLike a handful of breast for all the school to misinterpret]].
** And, of course this is how Ranma discovers that WholesomeCrossdresser Ukyō [[SamusIsAGirl is a girl]].

* SupportingHarem: It's pretty clear from the start who is going to be Ranma's love interest. While Shampoo and Ukyo get screen time here and there, Akane is on screen almost as much as Ranma is, and he actually lives in her house. She also gets his attention far more than the other girls.



* TameHisAnger: Both [[{{Protagonist}} Ranma Saotome]] and [[{{Tritagonist}} Ryōga Hibiki]] do this. [[TheRival Their anger was towards each other]]. By the end of the series they're pretty much [[HeterosexualLifePartners the best of friends]].
