YMMV: No Chance For Fate
YMMV in No Chance for Fate:
- Angst? What Angst?: Averted. Characters react far more naturally and are scared or down when appropriate,but there's no excessive angsting around.
- Complete Monster: Happosai, whose misdeeds were often discussed by Genma, Soun, and the Amazons before he finally appears in Chapter 26. What follows is an utter nightmare for the characters and the reader: the first thing he does is tear up Kasumi's clothing so he can ogle her, then he gropes Nabiki before attacking the group, declaring his intention of moving in with the Tendos and forcing them, the Saotomes, and their friends to be his slaves while he lives the easy life. When he was younger, he came to the Amazons' village and seduced Ku-Lon before showing his true colors by brutally raping several of her friends—driving some of them to suicide in the process—and running off with several of their sacred artifacts in the hopes of using them to satisfy his hedonism. When Ku-Lon responded by using a powerful spell to render him impotent, he retaliated by beating her near death. Years later, he attempted to mold Soun and Genma into hedonistic monsters like him, and toyed with the idea of killing them when it became apparent that he had failed. Throughout his debut appearance, Happosai revels in his pettiness and cruelty, and becomes enraged when those he intends to victimize refuse to bend over backwards to please him.
- Crossover Ship: Due to mixing both series, many ships are this. Ranma/Ami of course. Mu-Tsu/Makoto also seems to go that way.
- Damsel Scrappy: Very much averted. Akane and Usagi were pretty bad for this in canon. Here, they both are very capable of defending themselves and are not stupid enough to be lured into obvious traps.
- Neutral Evil: Clearly Happosai's alignment. Happosai is here monstrous in that his caring for no one but himself it taken to its logical conclusion. His willingness to do whatever it takes to get what he wants, regardless the consequences, is shown in its whole nastiness.
- Win Back the Crowd: Years of stale by-the-formula stories have left the Fuku Fic a dead field. Judging by the reviews, many see this as a breath of fresh air in this kind of crossover.
