* ShipToShipCombat: One of earliest shipping wars to break out on the Internet, mostly among die-hard partisans of the three "official" fiancées. The mid-90s Usenet arguments eventually coalesced into threads with the ''actual'' subject line of "Trench Wars".

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Akane Tendo is one of the most popular characters in France and she is rarely a victim of hate. Modern Japanese fandom also favors her disproportionately in artwork and fan fiction.



** For brief periods, Ukyou was hit with this by both [[WholesomeCrossdresser Tsubasa]] and [[RaisedAsTheOppositeGender Konatsu]]. In both cases, the cast believed each of them to be a lesbian girl smitten with Ukyou until their true gender was revealed to them and the audience. But while Tsubasa is vehemently heterosexual ("[He] just likes to dress up!"), Konatsu's personal gender identity is... complicated.



* MisaimedFandom: Nabiki is easily one of the most distinctive and compelling characters in the series. However, in at least the manga, she is also the one who is most uniformly shown as genuinely amoral and malicious, whereas even Taro, Shampoo, and Happosai are given a few PetTheDog moments. Among several other things, she let Ranma and her family take the fall for her debts during a "let's make the opponent pay for everything" duel and took no responsibility herself even as the accrued debts ruined them, blackmailed male Ranma for a staged apparent rape for the fun of it, and repeatedly swindled kindergarten kids. Yet, she is recurrently greatly favoured and farfetched rationalised in simultaneous contrast with ones that are generally nice, with the bad moments as an exception, and much stronger contrasts, whether due to EvilIsSexy, OppositesAttract, lack of other cerebral or relatively sane characters, sense of style, strict familiarity with the anime and fanon, or the writer identifying very strongly with her sociopath nature. Takahashi herself continuously drew Nabiki as a devil.

It didn't work, work: Akari was introduced far too late to grow beyond a FlatCharacter with few defining traits, much less acquire a fanbase of her own, and Ryoga never let go of Akane either until the very last pages of the last chapter of the last volume, making Akari appear as more of a consolation prize than a real relationship. Konatsu, introduced even later, ''quickly'' became a comedic sidekick to Ukyo instead of a believable love interest, especially since she shows zero interest in him despite being fully aware of his attraction to her. Ryoga/Ukyo has remainded a thus remained exactly as popular a [[FanPreferredCouple fan pairing.]]pairing]] as ever.



* SeasonalRot: The first three seasons of the anime are generally considered the best, with the subsequent seasons getting progressively worse. This is typically because the first three seasons are almost solely manga adaptations, and even their {{filler}} stories were directly derived from Takahashi-penned characterization; meanwhile, the latter seasons were more loaded with original stories where non-Takahashi filler [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] or [[CharacterExaggeration exaggerated]] the characters' traits. The anime getting cancelled before some of the biggest, most famous manga storylines were written doesn't help the frequent perception of the anime as inferior to the manga.

** Additionally, unlike in the manga, anime Ranma's curse isn't revealed to the school early on. This could have been used for tension or humour, but very seldom is past the first season, and ultimately results in a very unclimatic reveal. Admittedly, it isn't too dramatically revealed in the manga either, but it's still quite a let down.

** Less obviously; the name of the martial arts style that Happosai, the Saotomes and the Tendos translates directly (more or less) as "School of Indiscriminate Grappling", and this is what the manga used to refer to it. In the anime, it was translated as the somewhat looser, but arguably catchier, "Anything Goes Martial Arts", and this is how it is most commonly referred to.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Every single character gets one, and the deliberate alternate depictions (for some subtle, for others blatant) in the anime only add fuel to the fire. For example: Is Kasumi truly sweet and naive, or does she merely act that way because it's expected of her and she subtly enjoys stirring up trouble through such methods as giving Akane a mallet and planting the idea that Ranma may attempt to rape Akane while she's weak from the flu? Nabiki, a self-serving and greedy manipulator who only cares about money, or a young woman so broken over her mother's death she became what she is now?
** 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?
** The Ranma manga and anime are significantly different to the point that they can be considered alternate universes [[note]]It should be noted that while the manga was written by the creator Rumiko Takahashi, the anime was written by a production team without Takahashi-san's input.[[/note]] These [[http://ranmarelated.blogspot.com/2007/06/anime-vs-manga.html two]] [[http://ranmarelated.blogspot.com/2008/03/ranmas-characterization-between-manga.html blogs]] list many of the differences between the two.

** Ranma repeatedly beats up people and/or insults them, is perfectly willing to jump on the NeverMyFault bandwagon himself, and generally does a lot of stuff that is pretty damn villainous himself.
** Akane's portrayal in most much of the fandom is basically nothing like how she actually **is** in the series. She's frequently held to a double standard where her slapstick violence is treated "seriously" unlike the rest of the cast. She's said to never trust Ranma and have a hair trigger temper around him

** After Ukyo is DemotedToExtra she basically falls to the same level of depravity as Kodachi and Shampoo in trying to win Ranma over. Not good for her fans. Even not taking that into account, she's divisive: a lovely young woman who is far kinder to Ranma and more suitable to him than Shampoo or Akane? Or is she just as bad as Shampoo and Akane and/or does she put too much emphasis on a ChildhoodMarriagePromise?
** A lot of fans become alienated from the Ranma series due solely to ''Genma's'' actions, which are supposed to be played for laughs but can come off as downright abusive. There's been more than one dark fanfiction exploring the logical consequences of what would happen if Genma's jerkass behavior was taken seriously.
*** A lot of fans also consider the whole NekoKen incident as him crossing the Moral Event Horizon , dismissing both of his excuse (that he didn't read the full manual and that it was just him being dumb , not cruel or negligent) by bringing up that he IS a martial artist and a martial art teacher , who should know that you never teach a technique without knowing it in detail (and if he didn't , he should have never taught anything to anyone) and that he threw Ranma into the pit more than once
** Ryoga is extremely polarizing; the base either loves him for always having the best of intentions and generally trying his best to be a good guy (and sympathize with him due to his many misfortunes), or they hate his guts for taking advantage of his P-chan form to sleep in Akane's bed and generally making Ranma's life even more difficult than it already is.
** Shampoo is also extremely polarizing. She's either loved for her awesome martial arts skills and willingness to openly show affection (in contrast to Akane's Tsundere personality for example), or she's loathed for her "obstacles are for killing" mindset and her willingness to use drugs and poisons to get her way. She also lost a lot of fans when, in the manga, she was willing to ''bomb a wedding'' (albeit in a comedic fashion) and almost get people killed.

On the other hand, she typically reacts by trying to escape on her own, and in many cases does manage to at least initially break free of them.

** Akane's temper, refusal to hear out Ranma's explanations or trust Ranma, and willingness to resort to physical violence alienate a lot of fans, though others like to point out that Ranma ''does'' treat her like crap in his own way as well. Manga Akane in particular has some NeverLiveItDown moments of sexism, most notably the fact she has implied she believes Ranma is capable of rape. Moreover, she has implied this ''to his'' '''face'''. The violence is particularly divisive because, in the manga, she develops as a character and does it less and less often (not to mention there's a lot more focus on Ranma and Akane actually being ''apart'' in these later stories, too), while in the anime she never quite grows past that habit.

** During the Koi Rod, manga-exclusive arc, Ryoga accidentally "catches" Ranma with a magical rod that forces the victim to fall in love with the user (While trying to get Akane). While Ranma spends most of the arc transformed into a woman in an attempt to appeal to Ryoga, there are some instances in which male Ranma publicly admits his love for Ryoga. Due to a confusion by the end of the arc, Akane and her sisters believe that Ryoga used the rod on Ranma purposefully and are mystified as to why he has chosen Ranma as his special one.

Aside from costing the show Gosenkugi's macabre-based humor, Sasuke also cost Akane a suitor, weakening storylines which focused on her appeal, unless the specific plot forced Sasuke to [[OutOfCharacterMomentsuddenly have a crush on Akane]]. But Sasuke was also embraced by fans for his interactions with the Kunos and unique reocurring presence as a ninja.



*** There is a split here between anime & manga. In the manga, Ukyou & Ryouga go together like oil and water - I.E. not at all. In the anime, there are tiny hints.

* ReplacementScrappy: The anime-only character Sasuke replaced Gosenkugi in many of the manga storylines, and is looked down on by some, particularly manga purists. However, others feel that Sasuke fit many of those roles just as well, if not better, and he really comes into his own when allowed his own stories. Even some diehard "manga-only" fanfic authors are only glad to use him (it helps that he fills a unique role: an actual servant for the Kunos to boss around).

*** Mousse Goes Home To The Country: We never see Mousse leave Nerima or interact with his family, as the episode promises. Instead, Mousse hangs around Nerima pulling a passive-aggressive "IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy" routine until Shampoo & Cologne convince him he can stay.
