** Compared to his male form, Ranma's female form has no serious suitors that become reoccurring characters that she/he doesn't also share with one of his fiancees already. Ranma being constantly harassed by a lovestruck major character is never touched upon and most if not all the romantic comedy aspects revolving around Ranma focus on him being a straight male. Probably justifiable: beyond making a case as being an aversion of UnfortunateImplications of the DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale variety, there's also the logic. Namely, as Ranma canonically ''is'' a heterosexual male who happens to assume a female form, there's not a lot to really go with -- any would-be lovers to female!Ranma would be doomed from the get go.

** The Ranma manga and anime are significantly different to the point that they can be considered alternate universes.
*** 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.
*** 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.

** Akane's impassioned rants about how she hates boys certainly don't help matters -- or possibly do help depending on the ship you prefer. Admittedly, that's usually blown completely out of proportion and completely ignores the ''massive'' crush she had on Dr. Tofu. Her complaints that she hated boys pretty much happened only right at the start, and were only about the ones that kept attacking/stalking her every morning. After they stopped she was usually shown being friendly and helpful towards boys as well as girls. She really doesn't like Kuno or Happosai though, but still always helps them out when they seem to need it.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Any scene where someone goes after Ranma's pigtail, after it's revealed that he absolutely ''must'' wear his hair that way to avoid going bald (it's a long story). Thankfully, the curse wears off eventually.

** Ryoga's lousy sense of direction is surrealistically over-the-top, and has been PlayedForLaughs since 1987. As [[http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0028393208003588 neuroscience has]] [[http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/05/when-the-brain-cant-make-its-own-maps/392273/ since recently proven]], there ''are'' people out there who suffer from disorientation to the point they can even get lost ''in their own homes''. And unlike Ryoga, it's nothing to laugh at.

* BaseBreaker: Really, you won't find many characters who haven't alienated some fans, at some point.

* TheScrappy: Happosai, to the point where episodes where he has a prominent role are skipped by some fans. He is just as hated InUniverse, so this may be invoked.

*** Then again can it be seen as the characters are all in some way a {{jerkass}}.
