** '''On Top of That''': It is well established that Ranma is much stronger than Akane, and contrary to {{Fanon}} assumptions, [[WouldHitAGirl doesn't really have any compunction about hitting a girl.]] We even see him dodge her attacks after provoking her from time to time, or during training exercises.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Ranma to [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat Akane to a merciless pulp]]--or, at the very least, EVADE her strikes--every time she attacks him, ESPECIALLY those times when she does so for something that ISN'T his fault.\\
'''Instead''': He just stands there and takes it like a bitch, even at times when he didn't provoke her. Maybe he IS a masochist, after all.

'''On the Other Hand:''' Before Ranma and him could cure themselves, Genma tried to cook Ryoga, who [[{{Understatement}} did not react well]], suggesting to run away, and then they earn a ScarilyCompetentTracker hellbent to kill Ranma in the form of Shampoo. As for Ryoga, [[NoSenseOfDirection he got lost while chasing the mysterious panda and red-haired girl]].

'''Instead:''' The two of them make their way to the place separately, and Ryoga subsequently takes four days to get there. This on its own wouldn't be too bad, since Ranma was prepared to wait a few days for Ryoga to show up, however Genma drags Ranma off to China on the third day, and Ranma misses the duel as a result.\\

* Ranma is a boy who is cursed to transform into a girl every time he comes into contact with cold water & vice versa with hot water. He is uber-masculine and absolutely hates having his life ruined by these transformations.\\

'''Instead:''' He leaves his house every morning wearing a short sleeveless vest and without precautions of any kind. This frequently turns out exactly how you would expect ([[FridgeLogic not helped by]] Japan's rainy climate).
* Akane is generally a nice person, but one of her biggest flaws is that she does not take kindly to people who insult her, and will often [[MegatonPunch react]] [[DisproportionateRetribution very]] [[HyperspaceMallet violently]] when someone does so. Ranma is a typical offender and victim.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That after the first few instances of this, Ranma would figure out that insulting Akane is a very bad idea, and try to stop doing so. Even if he has [[NoSocialSkills little in the way of social skills]].\\
'''Instead:''' He keeps on doing it throughout the series. Makes you wonder whether he's some kind of masochist or if he's trying to toughen himself up.



* Ranma, who has a surplus of fiancées, suddenly has Shampoo, a fiancée he's not interested in, to lose interest in him. (She's been brainwashed by a magical jewel that alters her behavior, but Ranma doesn't know that.)\\

* Nabiki has learned that Ranma and her sister are finally going to get married.\\
'''You'd expect:''' She'd try and keep the various also-rans away from the ceremony, if only to prevent either her own death or the destruction of her property in the crossfire, being well aware that the mere possibility that Ranma was trying to give Akane an engagement ring caused the girls to destroy the Saotome house.\\
'''Instead:''' She figures they will bring cash presents to the wedding, as is traditional, and that she can somehow take that money for herself (as well as any money she may get from telling them). So, she ''calls them and lets them know what's going on''.



'''You'd expect:''' Ranma decides to do some CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds and encourages Kuno to give up on his female form and Akane to get together with his admirer.\\
'''Instead:''' Ranma decides to break them up by proving he (in his female form) loves Kuno more and actively encourages Kuno to come after "her" and dump his new love interest. All to get back at Kuno's admirer for making Akane upset by cheating in a volleyball game, never mind that there were other ways to get back at her. Ultimately, Kuno's admirer gives up and leaves, while Kuno continues to pursue Ranma and Akane as much as before if not more so and ends up ruining Ranma's wedding in the final story.

* Ranma and Ryoga learn of a Spring of Drowned Man somewhere in Japan, which could potentially remove their curses. The only trouble is that the spring is located underneath the girls' locker room at Furinkan High.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The two of them to wait until nightfall, and break into the locker room then, when there's nobody around.\\
'''Instead:''' Ranma repeatedly tries to get to the spring even when the girls are using the locker room. Each of his attempts ends with him being mistaken for a panty thief and beaten up by the girls.

* Shortly before his trip to China, Ranma agrees to fight a duel with Ryoga, a guy that Ranma knows has a [[NoSenseOfDirection horrific sense of direction]].\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Both of them to agree to have Ranma meet Ryoga at the latter's home, and lead him to the location of the duel.\\
'''Instead:''' The two of them make their way to the place separately, and Ryoga subsequently takes four days to get there. This on its own wouldn't be too bad, since Ranma was prepared to wait a few days for Ryoga to show up, however Genma drags Ranma off to China on the third day, and Ranma misses the duel as a result.\\
'''Result:''' Ryoga ultimately ends up with a Jusenkyo curse, and grows to hate Ranma for causing this bit of misfortune.
