* GodModeSue: Ranma is often portrayed as one in fanfic. Most evident in stories where he obtains an extreme powerup or ability that almost instantly makes everyone else he knows concede that he's the best and the only hope for the universe. Though, to be honest, the canonical version of Ranma in the manga (at least) can be seen as heavily leaning this way: With the comedic exception of ice skating he's pretty much instantly good at any skill he needs to use (tea ceremony, sewing, cooking) and prone to pulling the fact that he is good at them out of thin air when he turns out to need them. He has superhuman abilities (SuperSpeed, SuperStrength, RapidFireFisticuffs, MadeOfIron, HealingFactor, KiAttacks) and comes off as superhuman even compared to the other superhuman fighters in the series (The only characters who can actually go toe to toe with Ranma in straight up serious battle are [[TheRival Ryoga]] [[MadeOfIron Hibiki]] the {{Old Master}}s Cologne and Happosai, Pantyhose Taro's OneWingedAngel form, Ryu Kumon (who happens to wield a whole school of {{Dangerous Forbidden Technique}}s), the dragon-blooded Herb and the... well, however you'd describe [[KillItWithFire Saffron]]). Despite his canonical childhood, he is actually nowhere near as [[NoSocialSkills poorly off for social skills]] as you may think, being quite capable of being polite, charming, sincere and even seductive when he wants to be. He can [[AwesomenessByAnalysis read, decipher and reverse engineer the attacks and skills of his opponents]] in lengths of time that can take anywhere from days to ''minutes''. He has all of these traits in canon, but they are balanced somewhat by his tendency to attract luck associated with the ButtMonkey or TheChewToy.

* JerkSue: ** Nabiki is portrayed this way in fanon... However, the root material more portrays her as a comedic spoof of a VillainSue. ** Akane is also sometimes portrayed this way in fanfiction, usually by simultaneously [[{{Flanderization}} overplaying her actual temper and willingness to use violence]] and portraying every single thing she does as being reasonable, no matter how unreasonably extreme she may be portrayed. ** There is no lack of fan fiction that takes Ranma's JerkJock [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold With A Heart Of Gold]] attitude and kind of forget to give him enough "heart of gold" to compensate his power boosting or things going his way (mostly by making the rest of the cast suffer, sometimes [[DisproportionateRetribution a bit too much]]).

* MarySue: Akari is regarded by some as a combination of CanonSue and RelationshipSue, on the basis that she is an official character created by Creator/RumikoTakahashi explicitly for the purpose of giving Ryoga both a "happy ending" and a LoveInterest of his own, and her super-sweet perfectness. Which stands out even more when you consider ''everyone'' in this setting is an unrepentant '''JerkAss'''.

* RelationshipSue: The blatant purpose behind Akari's creation was to give Ryoga a girlfriend and thus a happy ending, as well as a reason to stop chasing Akane. It worked in-series, but many fans [[FanPreferredCouple preferred]] the pairing [[RelationshipWritingFumble that seemed to be shaping up between Ryoga and Ukyo.]] Specifically, Akari was introduced near the end of the series, immediately fell head over heels for Ryoga, had no real character flaws, and was absolutely perfect for him (sweet, demure, understanding, loves pigs so much that she's instantly accepting of Ryoga's curse). Ryoga soon reciprocated and Akari did little else from then on; only appearing in four individual stories.

** Ryoga/Akari: Akari is a RelationshipSue.

* VillainSue: '''NABIKI'''. Generally PlayedForLaughs in that her targets are for the most part just ''that'' dumb and/or ''that'' desperate and aside from one arc where she tries to push her luck with the fiancees and Ranma has to stop them from implementing MurderIsTheBestSolution on her (and succeeds), she ''always'' walks away a few thousand Yen richer and everybody else (normally Ranma) humiliated and holding the wreckage that the chaos inflicted and her [[TheBarnum Barnum]]-[[PersonAsVerb ing]] exacerbated or even ''caused''. And she never, ''never'', cares.

Added DiffLines:
* CreatorsPet: Akane. Despite being the regarded as the homeliest of the three Tendo sisters and her self-avowed dislike of men, she's also one of the most popular and admired girls at her school. Furthermore, whenever she feels Ranma is being unfaithful to her, Akane's idea of retribution is to cheat on him with another male character (usually the lovestruck Ryouga) while in every squabble with Ranma, more often than not the other characters will side with her and tell Ranma to make up with her regardless of whether or not it was even his fault.

Added DiffLines:
* FanPreferredCouple: A lot of fans prefer to pair Ranma up with any of the other fiancees aside from Akane due to her bipolar behavior. He's been paired with Shampoo, Ukyo, Kasumi, maybe even Nabiki. Sometimes someone completely unexpected.

* MyRealDaddy: Ranma made RumikoTakahashi a household word amongst American Otaku, and she's still the undeniable heart and soul of the whole franchise, but when most people picture the characters or try to draw them, it's the character designs of Atsuko Nakajima (specifically those featured in the {{OAV}}s and second movie) that they're imagining. See the main page's image for a prime example.

** [[TheRival Ryoga Hibiki]], at first, though he was so popular he ended up being a BreakOutCharacter. This was to the extent that RumikoTakahashi actually ended up creating a girl from scratch solely so that Ryoga could break out of AllLoveIsUnrequited and be free of the LoveDodecahedron and find some measure of happiness. [[MagnificentBastard Nabiki]] also qualifies.

It cant be an audience alienating premise when the series has an audience
* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Okay, it's not as bad as [[Manga/{{Mariaholic}} "perverted lesbian is blackmailed and abused by sadistic crossdresser as she tries to score a girlfriend at the same all-girls high school"]], but let's face it, "brash arrogant teen martial artist who repeatedly turns into a busty and often-naked girl is forced into an ArrangedMarriage with a tomboy whose issues he makes fun of and replies violently to such stuff, has to deal with a borderline-{{Yandere}} UnwantedHarem, a bunch of {{Jerkass}} adults (''especially'' his father (who is the textbook definition of the AbusiveParents trope) and an OldMaster who is a DirtyOldMan to InUniverse [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] levels) and where the violence is played for laughs" isn't exactly something that brings interested readers/viewers running.

Not an example.
* FanPreferredCouple: As the only ''canonically requited'' matches in the LoveDodecahedron are between Ranma/Akane, Genma/Nodoka and Ryoga/Akari, every other pairing, including Shampoo/[[StalkerWithACrush Mousse]] and [[MayDecemberRomance Tofu/Kasumi]], belongs in this category. Just the same, almost every single matchup inside the dodechedron (and numerous ones outside it) has fans. Ranma in particular is the LauncherOfAThousandShips, although Ranma/Ukyo, [[HoYay Ranma/Ryoga]], Ranma/Kasumi etc. are all individually less popular than Ranma/Akane.

** Ukyo/Konatsu: Konatsu is a doormat who [[LastMinuteHookup appears out of nowhere, far too soon before the series end]], and Ukyo finds him annoying but pitiful more then anything.

God damn, so many typos...
* BaseBreaker: Really, you won't find many characters who haven't alienated some fan, at some point.

** Is Akane's truly is clueless about Ryoga liking her or is is aware that he likes her but is deliberately ignoring the fact that he likes her. ** Where do Ranma and Ryoga's perspective physical strength lie in comparison. Is Ryoga is physically stronger, is male form Ranma is physically stronger, or is their physical strength close enough to being the same that the difference is so minor as to not matter? *** It is more complex since there exists more than one type of physical strength and Ryoga maybe stronger in one type and Ranma stronger in another
