* BlowYouAway: She was the one who taught Ranma the "Hiryū Shōten Ha" tornado technique after all.

* BlowYouAway: She was the one who taught Ranma the "Hiryū Shōten Ha" tornado technique after all. Unfortunately, she had previously used it on Happōsai, [[ItOnlyWorksOnce who recognized it almost as soon as Ranma initiated it]].


Added DiffLines:

* KiAttacks: It takes ''considerable'' motivation for her to resort to these, but when she does, she doesn't even need to call out the attack. She just tosses a fireball that can melt through metal. Of course, the Hiryū Shōten Ha falls into this category, and fanon attributes the Shark Fist and Bakusai Tenketsu to ki manipulation.

* PoorCommunicationKills: He fails to disclose the nature of the Jusenkyō springs to anyone in time to prevent mishaps. He fails to warn Ranma that challenging, and then defeating Shampoo as a man or as a woman will have consequences either way (even ''while'' he's translating said challenge and he's perfectly aware ofAR) the implications). He neglects to inform anyone that Jusenkyō ''can'' be drained, just so long as they restore the flow at the source again. And finally, he never says anything about Jusenkyō's level coming back down after it becomes flooded, so everyone goes home and gives up on the cures. In the anime, there's an episode where he comes to Nerima because, on this once-a-millenium day, the Tendō Dojo's koi pond can be turned into a Jusenkyō outlet. He naturally fails to warn that if they stuff this up, it can't be performed again for 1000 years, and that something like breaking the rope he surrounds the pond with will cause the ritual to fail and leave them all stuck with their curses.

* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Although her age is never explicitly stated, she looks neither older nor younger than the six year-olds that Ranma and Ryōga once regressed to. She's still far wiser than the teens whose help she seeks (or, indeed, the adults), is incredibly resourceful (managed to get from deep inland China to Japan on her own, while on the run from deadly warriors), and is also quite fearless.

* MixAndMatchCritters: Tarō's cursed form is apparently constructed with the premise of "what types of creatures would you have to mix to create something more-or-less archetypical demonic-looking?" Answer: You toss a yeti, an ox, an eel and a crane into one Jusenkyō Spring, and get a creature with the frame of a yeti, the head and hooves of an ox, an eel as a tail... and a pair of crane, rather than bat, wings, which is the only odd one out. He is even [[LampshadeHanging referred to as a "demon-lord"]] in [[ZanyScheme the play Ranma set up for Happōsai]]. Later he turns into a spoof of a "tentacle-demon" by adding "Spring of Drowned Octopus" to the concoction... with the bonus of shooting blinding ink blasts from his fingers.

Added DiffLines:

*TheRival: Her beef with Ukyo is similar to that of Ranma's with Ryoga, in that they fiercely compete for Ranma's affections[[note]]whereas he and Ryoga compete for Akane's[[/note]], and as chefs. However, it's mostly seen in the anime since they hardly interact in the manga.

** She can also be the Betty to Akane's Veronica. Case in point that like Betty, Shampoo is a lot smarter than she looks, is surprisingly multi-skilled, and vies for Ranma's attention

Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: Although not as tough as Ranma or Ryoga, his constant punishment at the hands of Shampoo, and his duels with Ranma have given him super human toughness. During the final arc, he is surprised when a foe cannot simply shrug off being hit by a boulder that "couldn't weigh more than five tons."

* DeliberatelyDistressedDamsel: Maomolin tried to force Shampoo to become his wife a couple of times. Shampoo could have easily dealt with him on her own, but preferred to play the DamselInDistress role to make Ranma protect her. During the Pink and Link arc, she easily frees herself from their kidnapping, beats them up, and forces them to stick to the role of kidnappers so she can still be rescued by Ranma.

* CantCatchUp: For a while, while Ranma and Ryōga kept gaining power ups from training, he just couldn't keep up with their level. He constantly gets trounced whenever pitted against them. Ryōga once even managed to simultaneously fight him, Kuno, Principal Kuno, and Gosunkugi off when they decided to gang up on a weakened Ranma in a GoThroughMe moment. However, he was still able to fight toe to toe with [[SuperSpeed Mint]] in the Musk Dynasty arc, and, later on, going on "dates" with a stupendously heavy Jizō statue [[WaxOnWaxOff accidentally brought up his strength and endurance tremendously]].
