* 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.

*** 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. The same is true for Shampoo & Mousse - she couldn't care less if he ''dies'' in the manga, but the anime is much different.

* 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.

** While not particularly egregious for their time, the series' portrayals of Chinese characters and attitudes toward LGBT sexuality would not go down well in the 21st century. Shampoo was pretty much the poster child for AnimeChineseGirl and the others weren't much better. Plus any hint of homosexuality was met with immediate disdain or disgust from most of the cast. To the extent that gays and lesbians were labelled as "perverts" and Ranma once tried to "fix" a lesbian (actually a crossdressing male) by taking her on a date. Yeah...pretty bad. It's very unlikely the creator would get away with that kind of thing these days. Or at the very least she would be called out on it ''a lot'' more harshly.

*** 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.

** While not particularly egregious for their time, let's just say some of the series' portrayals of Chinese characters and attitudes toward LGBT sexuality might not go down so well in the 21st century.

* 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.
