* 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 of 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.

* MsFanservice: Perhaps even more worthy of the title than Ranma, given that while she does end up naked less often, she's much more likely to be deliberately trying to be sexy when she is naked. Not to mention lacking the whole potential {{Squick}} factor of being a GenderBender. Also, there's [[FetishFuel that high-slit cheongsam she often wears, and the fact she doesn't care about being naked]].

Added DiffLines:

* ShapeshiftingExcludesClothing: She end up unexpectedly naked when she changes back into human form (admittedly, she don't much care).

* BestHerToBedHer: It's a written-down law of her village that's centuries old.old; the warrior women have to marry the man who defeats them in battle. In Shampoo's case, it was Ranma.



* MrsExposition: Will typically sit down and explain lore related to Jusenkyō, ancient Chinese tribes, and magical devices.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the manga, she was a cold [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative bitch]] who had no problem toying with Ranma, and even less so with wanting to kill Akane. In the anime, her feelings towards Ranma are more genuine and she went out of her way to save Akane's life at least once.

* DistressedDamsel: With the BakeNeko.

* DistressedDamsel: With 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 BakeNeko. DamselInDistress role to make Ranma protect her.



* TrueLovesKiss: This is what's to break the curse placed on her by Bakeneko, and ONLY Ranma can do it. It's doubtful if Mousse did it, it would not work anyway since Shampoo doesn't love him that way.

* [[BadassGrandpa Badass Grandma]]: Depending on the continuity, she's either somewhere over 100-300 years old or so, and that hardly impacts her ability to fuck you up six ways from Sunday in combat. There's a reason she's the go-to person for some of the series' more devastating, useful, and powerful techniques.



* [[MrExposition Mrs. Exposition]]: Will typically sit down and explain lore related to Jusenkyō, ancient Chinese tribes, and magical devices.
* NeverMessWithGranny: This "little old lady" can kick the ass of just about any of the main characters in the series when she feels inclined. She can even toss Pantyhose Tarō's monster form around like it is nothing.

* PetTheDog: When Cologne captures Ryōga-in-piglet form at the start of the Bakusai Tenketsu story arc, Shampoo thinks that the pig looks familiar, recognizes it as being Akane's pet, and promptly runs into the kitchen to try and stop Cologne from making it into today's special. Keep in mind, up until the moment when Ryōga leaps naked out of the pot, Shampoo has no idea that this is anything more than an ordinary pig that just happens to be Akane's pet. Also, Shampoo and Akane haven't the best of relationships, so that she doesn't do the petty thing and let Akane's pet be made into dinner is more impressive.

* CuteBruiser: Shampoo is the third strongest regular character in the series, right after Ryoga and Ranma. She generally wields giant Chuis as weapons, and is more likely to knock a wall down than use a door. And she's cute and perky to boot.



* WaifFu: A short and slender Chinese girl that can take down mammoth opponents without trying.

* WaifFu: A short and slender Chinese girl that can take down mammoth opponents without trying. Unlike most examples, her acrobatics are downplayed (but still there) in favor of brute strength.

* EmbarrassingFirstName: The prefix of his first name is ''Pantyhose''. Is it any wonder he runs away from girls who ask him what it is?

* FateWorseThanDeath: Taro considers living his life with the name of Pantyhose as this, which is why he is so hellbent on hunting Happosai to force him to change it.

* Foil: To Ranma. Both characters are martial artists who are both cursed by the Jusenkyo springs, and are routinely screwed over by Happosiai. While Ranma has managed to remain a more or less noble individual, and does his best not to dwell on what would be a more than well justified grudge, Taro has completely given in to his rage and resentment, not only going after Happosai, who is the ultimate cause and target of his rage, but is more than willing to grievously harm, if not kill, anyone he comes across whom he thinks might be in the way, even if they have nothing to do with him, like Akane.
