The Complete Monster bit on YMMV. Scraggle edited out the article on Ranma, and Gendo being Complete Monsters.

But they both are to me at least, fit to be described as Complete Monsters on the YMMV page, especialy Gendo. He's a rapist, that abuses his position as prison guardian, and gave Nabiki a drug that erroded her mind, and efficently, destroyed her personality.

Ranma, while he does things ot of revenge, he way overdid it to be sympathetic in the slightest. He locked Ryoga in his pig form, and tossed him to be DEVOURED by a Siberian Tiger. He caused a war between Musk and the Amazons, that killed thousands of innocents, that didn't do anything to him, and later was the cause of the Chinese army invading the Amazons and Musk. The Amazon village and Musk Dynasty are literaly destroyed by an airstrike by the Chinese Army.Ranma basicaly caused the destruction of two cultures. Ranma also will torture his father to end of his life. He causes Soun to ultimately go insane, which makes Soun murderous towards Akane.

I think that both should be under the Complete Monster category, or at least Gendo.

  • Laser-Guided Karma: Ranma does not pull any punches on those who screwed him over. Akane is thrown out of Furinkan High, later gets beaten by a superior opponent, cursed to become a boy with Jusenkyou water, and has said cursed locked in. Kasumi's engagement with Tofuu is terminated. Genma gets beaten within an inch of his life and is left crippled, and is later tossed into a pit of starving housecats, is given the Cat's Tongue Pressure Point, and splashed with cold water. Nodoka is disowned by her parents and her sword is destroyed. Soun loses his council seat and is forced to watch his family's downfall. Ryouga is outed as a burakumin, chased out of Nerima, turned into kitty chow (and later Shibito-fied in the alternate ending). Nabiki attempts to blackmail the wrong person and is arrested, tried and sent to prison.
    • Ranma even admits to having no real hand in the last one. That was pure karma.

Laser-Guided Karma is not ymmv. And, based in the wording of the example, sounds as a correct example.

Yeah, that entry is questionable. Too much spoiler tagging, and most of the entries don't seem to fit the trope.
