Fan Fic / No Need For Destiny

Go To

A spell botched by Happosai sends Ranma and Nabiki away for three days. But was it all that happened to the two?

No Need for Destiny is a Mega Crossover featuring Ranma ½, Sailor Moon, Naruto, Ah! My Goddess, Slayers, Tenchi Muyo!, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Grenadier. It was written by David Richards and began online publication on May 6th, 2006. It currently stands incomplete at 21 chapters, the most recent of which was published on October 3rd, 2009.


It's been ten years. This is a Deadfic at this point.

No Need for Destiny provides examples of:

  • A God I Am Not: After the fall of the Silver Millennium Enma and Chibi-Ranma attempted to speed up their loved ones reincarnation. However the two didn't take into account that Serenity anchored those souls to Earth in the Sol System, so they ended up creating two Sol-type systems. Ranma then forced the two to watch over the systems
    • Since Enma was the last remaining Royal, the Senate—or what had been formed of the remaining planetary Senates after the Great Fall—had proclaimed him ruler until Serenity returned and assumed her throne on Selene once more. With a heavy heart, he relented to their demands, and assumed control over Alpha Centauri.
  • A Million Is a Statistic: Averted after everything done to prevent it the Great Fall hit the survivors really hard in addition to all the personal loved one's about ninety-nine percent of Earth's population died due to Metaria using Cast from Hit Points to control them. For the Sol System as a whole, eighty-seven-point-six percent of the fleet either died or was crippled; and sixty-three percent of the population died or they never found the body.
    • Even out of the Royal family only Enma and his mother survived.
  • All There in the Manual: Averted the nature of the narrative means that there are many things still unknown about the 20000 years of Ranma and Nabiki's life or the lives of their family and friends. Exactly how many kids do they have, is Tenchi's mother Achika or Tennyo. They fact that this is a multicrossover makes this all the more harder as given who they are the character's lives can be inferred it is really nothing more then Wild Mass Guessing such as Yajirou Kojima Kuramitsu most likely being apart of the Shinmei-ryu. Or the fact that it is highly unlikely Mihoshi's breakdown came from an arranged marriage.

  • Always Someone Better: It irked Kami-sama when he found out about the old gods.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: When Nabiki told Queen Venus about Chibi-Ranma's past relationship problems Ranma knew that knowing his son was going to hate Nabiki for telling these tales—the fact Miyuki would was a given—and that Chibi-Ranma would hate him for not stopping it. Oh well.
  • And I Must Scream: Ranma used 20 gravitation Bombs to trap Kain within the border between space and time, between our universe and the next.
  • Anger Born of Worry: Lona was furious that Enma didn't send her a message telling her he was okay.

  • Armor-Piercing Question: The Juraian Advisor gave Ranma one to get him to take his education seriously after learning of Genma's plan's of having him run the Tendo Dojo while having never bothered to teach him or let him learn how to actually run a dojo.
    Advisor: So, without an understanding of how a dojo is run, how do you plan to run one? Do you plan to trust your father to run it for you honestly?
  • As Long as There is Evil: This was one of the ways Ranma was convinced to take over the Seniwa Corporation
  • Avenging the Villain: Combined with revenge before reason the designers and fellow team members of the mercenaries or AI systems sent to kill Ranma and Nabiki Kuramitsu were furious at the loss of their comrades and inventions and thus sent more

    • Averted as Ranma was able to eventually perfect it

  • Bad Boss: Dynast Grausherra Xellos noted that while Zellas might have been the weakest of the Mazoku Lords, she would have at least retrieved his body, if for nothing else than to retrieve her power or restore him. Something Dynast Grausherra never bothered due to the fact she had out lived her usefulness
  • Badass Baritone: Sugoroku Mutou Kuramitsu has been described as sounding like Yami in his real form.
  • {{ Badass}}: It turns out that the original Ranma was more this then with thought as the fact that Ryoga has the blood of an elder god in him makes it all the more impressive that Ranma was able to defeat him.
  • Beat the Curse Out of Him: Xellos did this to his sister after resurrecting her when she had brainwash residue
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Kain gained immortality and ultimate power and all it cost was his freedom.

  • Black Sheep: Minami Kuramitsu is considered this due to how high strung he is
  • Boring, but Practical: This was Kain's plan to deal with Ranma and Nabiki knowing that their papa wolf mama bear tendencies would lead them to giving a heroic sacrifice as well as the previous failed assassination would mean they would be on guard. All that he and the remaining board members needed to do was bide their time.
  • Brainwash Residue: Despite her memories being restored the first thing Washu did after being reunited with Ranma was give him a Megaton Punch as she was still being affected by 20000 years of fake memories.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: While Hippolyta was well taught in Infinity School, and definitely had the mind for GP work she wanted a stable life, a job where she could enjoy the nightlife. She didn't want a massive responsibility like her older siblings had, she wanted ... well, middle management.

  • Combat Pragmatist: Ranma using Kain's ability to absorb mass to detonate 60 graviton bombs inside his body.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When water torture didn't work in getting Ranma to take his studies seriously she threatened that if he didn't get an A on the next series of testing then some special guards would get a few dates with the single granddaughter of the former head of Seniwa. Ranma replied that his mom didn't have a girl.
  • Covert Pervert: It turns out Rushuna Tendo Kuramitsu is this
  • Crash-Into Hello: This is how Ranma and Washu met
  • Crazy-Prepared: Due to the fact that Akane doesn't always wait for him to reply before sending him flying with something Ranma always keeps his pack with him using the Hidden Weaponry Technique allowing him to carry around a tent and sleeping bags everywhere he goes.

    • Nabiki was also a little creped out by the fact that they thought the No-Holds-Barred Beatdown they put on the men was all a game.
    Nabiki: They think this is a game?
    Ranma: Fastest way to get them to learn is to make it so they enjoy doing so. What, you expected my to teach them like Pops did me?
    Nabiki: No, but that still doesn't mean I'm going to stop watching you.

    Leader: Why not kill me now?
    Nabiki: Simple; I want you to suffer. Enjoy your stay, for however long it lasts.

  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Ranma's first spar with Chibi-Ranma ended up sending him sixteen centimeters into the wall and hit the junction that controlled the gravity. Thus, Ranma was slammed back down to the floor and experiencing close to two hundred times standard gravity; eight times the highest he had ever trained in. Suffice to say, he received a few injuries.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: As the child of an active goddess, Chibi-Ranma was born with a large amount of power. If he was not taught properly, he may injury innocents. So Tokimi didn't tell Ranma about him until he summoned Mikumo and Miyuki to him.
    • Minaho was pulled off Edo due to her injuries and couldn't return because it was a sealed systems while Arashi sealed his soul inside your body.
    • Not only did Michio not know that Ikue was pregnant when she got lost it took him 19 years to find her.
    • Played with Ranma was always apart of the lives of the children he had with Queen Venus, Setsuna, and Queen Serenity but he just couldn't publicly claim them as it could be seen as a way for Seniwa to gain influence or even control. Over the Sol System.

    Nabiki: I remember,
    Ranma: Am I going to have to do that to my own children some day?

  • Dirty Coward: General Fuji Sukai in an effort to make a name for himself when he came across the lost Ranma and Nabiki he ordered the Royal Guards to slaughter them without question only stopping them when the emperor's guardians showed up. Throughout the entire fight he held back to the rear never making a move to fight himself.
    • Later after he was court martial for this he attempted to assassinate Ranma and Nabiki in their sleep.
    • Kain only faced Ranma went he had no other choice and he thought that everything was in his favor. The moment he found out exactly how strong Ranma was he ran away.

  • Divine Parentage: Washu to Mikumo and Tokimi Chibi-Ranma
    • There is also Hild to Xelloss and Sherra

The object is to fire stun spells at the opposing team, while trying to deflect or redirect fired spells away from your person. Some teams have played games without firing a single spell, but redirecting the other team's own spells back at them.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: In universe Queen Serenity and Sailor Pluto coming to Ranma to ask for his help in producing strong heirs was a little too close to the Amazon ideals for Nabiki's liking.

    Miyuki: How long have you known?
    Nabiki: Oh, since about your second birthday, when you and Mikumo couldn't stop taking naps with each other.
  • Exact Words: While the intent of Chibi-Ranma's spell was to summon his father Ranma Kuramitsu, he wasn't specific enough. The wording caused the spell to seek out the closest male relative. As his father only shares half of his DNA with him, the DNA shared by the Goddesses adds to that, making Mikumo Kuramitsu a closer match as far as the spell was concerned.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: This was General Fuji Sukai plan to invoke this trope so that when the empire eventually gives birth to a daughter he would be the obvious choice to be princesses groom.

  • Generation Xerox: Chibi-Ranma looks exactly like his father only with Tokimi's eyes and hair a blend of red and brown, giving it a copper appearance.
    • Chibi-Ranma also inherited Ranma's Chick Magnet status.
    • Ranko Kuramits looks so much like her fathers cursed form that she was forbidden from killing Tatewaki Kuno.
    • Queen Pluto looks like a slightly older version of her daughter. The only difference is that her hair is a lighter green

  • Genius Ditz: According to Washu Ranma can be a bit dense at times
    • Rushuna Tendo Kuramitsu
  • Gone Horribly Right: Given the massive size of the Kuramitsu including marriages and Children produced by other woman you can just picture Nodoka doing the victory fan dance...
  • Good Parents: Ranma and Nabiki
    • A great example of this how Ranma helped Enma get over his Survivor Guilt staying with him, watching him, and comforting him, as the nightmares returned. Enma himself started that Ranma is the reason he was able to even start to bounce back from the Fall, let alone tolerate running the Alpha Centauri Systems
    • With the exception of Genma every parent is shown to be one even Hild in her own way.
  • Good People Have Good Sex: Pretty much every married couple seen
    G: Strange, I did not believe sound carried that well around here. We are kilometers from their last location, after all.
  • Hanlon's Razor: Ranma ultimately come to the conclusion that this applies to his father as being evil would have required Genma Saotome to have an IQ larger than the number of pieces on a shogi board. He acts stupidly, without full knowledge of the situation, and without regard to others and this make's him seem evil.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: In order to get Ranma and Nabiki ready to take over the Seniwa Emperor Mikado Jurai gave them the best tutors the empire could offer, before they go off to attend the Galaxy Science Academy. When Nabiki asked how science would help them run a business he replied with this trope.
    Emperor Mikado Jurai: The lessons on available technology would be invaluable, as well as their business programs are suited towards such jobs as what you and your fiancé will be encountering.
  • Heir Club for Men: Inverted during the Silver Millennium the first born of any of the royal lines on any of the worlds except for Earth, is a girl. Which is why it was such a shock when Enma was born.
  • Henpecked Husband: Ranma
    • In fact it seems that all Kuramitsu are this as they as they seem to attract strong versatile woman
      • If it was one thing that put fear into a Kuramitsu, it was the wife of a Kuramitsu.

  • Hidden Backup Prince: This was one of the rumors surrounding Enma's birth that there was a lost princess out there, somehow hidden to protect her.
  • Hive Mind: Orichalcum is Made of Air and each piece is part of a hive mind.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: The chaos energy Gun Kain used in a desperate attempt to kill Ranma blew up in his face.
    • Misaka Kuramitsu set up a Batman Gambit for Genma to do this by leaving Nodoka a trust fund and only giving her access to it to pay off Genma's debts and lawyer fees. Before the training trip, he could have lived off the interest alone for the rest of his life comfortably. But now all oh his mishaps have almost drained it dry.
    • Enma taught his Tsundere wife how to perform a spell without the need of chaos words
    • Ranma was holding back in his fight with Orichalcum as he didn't want destroy the planet they were fighting on however after realizing that he couldn't influence Ranma he started gloating that he could influence other's as well as kill his children. Orichalcum was hoping that an angry Ranma would be easy to defeat but all it did was make Ranma desperate enough to end the fight as quickly as possible.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Miyuki has made horrible choices in woman she has tried to set her brother up with ranging from Yaoi fangirl to a mantis-like species that eat their mate after sex.
    • Miyuki has been trying to set her brother up with a girl her whole life all have ended in catastrophe.
    Miyuki: What about my friend Yuna that I set you up with?
    Chibi-Ranma: You mean the girl that wanted me to dress up as her "slave girl" that needed punishment?
    Miyuki: There was Natsume.
    Chibi-Ranma: She wanted me to take genetic stimulants because she wanted us to be "natural" to the point we were more animal than human.
    Miyuki: Okay, but you really enjoyed Juri.
    Chibi-Ranma: Yes, until she tried to get me involved in her planet's mating rituals, which require the male to sacrifice one of his testicles.
    Mikumo: Okay, so we all agree Miyuki has the worst taste in finding girls for you.
    • It reached the point that Ranma had to tell her to stop it
    Ranma: While we have the time, any special women in your life, son?
    Chibi-Ranma: No. I'm quite frankly surprised Miyuki could find someone for herself, considering the people she thinks are just 'perfect' for me.
    Ranma: Yes; you're big sister does have a bit of a problem with bad tastes when setting up her siblings.
    Chibi-Ranma: Yeah, it's enough to make me consider becoming a monk. Ten thousand years, and she has yet to find and try to set me up with someone without more baggage than a colony ship.
    Ranma: You'll find someone, son, and when you do, you'll know it was all worth it.
    Chibi-Ranma: They can't be any worse than that one girl whose species killed the male after mating.
    Ranma: We really do need to talk to her about her attempts.
    Chibi-Ranma: Please do, I don't want to hurt her, but one more bad blind date, and I will have to kill her ... for the safety of singles everywhere.
  • Human Mom Nonhuman Dad: Inverted as Ranma is the human but is the consort of multiple gods and demons
  • Humanity Is Infectious: While Xellos doesn't hate the part of him that came from his father—especially the part which puts him in line for so many scenes of chaos but at times it really makes being a demon a difficult job due to this trope
  • I Hate Past Me: The Older and Wiser Nabiki and Ranma never realize how bad they were until they had to reinsert themselves into their lives.
    Nabiki: Was I really so young. Short hair and a small time con artist; gee, I had it all.
    Ranma: Yeah, well I was sure a good catch. Aside from martial arts, I really didn't have much going for me. I'm half tempted to just show a bit of my IQ at school, just to see how many teachers I can make think that the End of Days is upon them.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: Though he stopped invoking Honor Before Reason Kain found out that Ranma never quite broke the habit of holding back just enough to defeat his enemies.
  • Implacable Man:Kain after is transformation could completely No-Sell Ranma's Möko Takabisha
    • Even directly coming into contact with an exposed EPS conduit seemed to merely upset Kain
  • Indy Ploy: Averted Kain admitted this was never his strongest skill
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: While sympathetic maybe stretching it given that his overall plan was to invoke Fake Ultimate Hero to be chosen as the next successor to the throne then wait for the current Emperor to be either step down or get into an accident. However General Fuji Sukai couldn't catch a break. First upon coming across Ranma and Nabiki who he mistook for nobodies who had wandered on Imperial Land he had the royal guards attack them claiming they were there to assassinate the Emperor. Only for Ranma to prove to be skilled enough to fight them off until the Guardians arrived. This caused him to lose the distrust of the Emperor be disgraced before his men, and lost the possibility that he would be in position to marry a Princess of the Empire, let alone become the next Emperor. Later Fuji tried to assassinate the two in their sleep only to receive a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown and sent back to prison.
    Ranma: Could you guys put this back where it belongs ... and keep it there this time. I was kinda hoping to sleep without some asshole trying to kill me.
  • Insistent Terminology: In universe people often wonder why Ranma keeps referring to his father as a panda.
  • Insufferable Genius: Ironically it seems that Naja was this when she and Washu were growing up.
    Naja: Don't worry, as the soon-to-be-greatest scientific genius in the whole universe, I shall help you work on that!
    Washu: We'll see, Naja. We'll see.
    • Downplayed with Ranma while he's no where near the level Naja and Washu Ranma applies his academics with the same gusto he applies his martial arts as in he doesn't lose.
  • Invisible to Normals: Hild can do this
  • Irony: It turns out that Ranma is Ryoga's grandfather
  • The Jail Bait Wait: Played with due to slower growth, longer life, and the decided date that a Senshi of Saturn was truly capable of understanding the rigors that would be needed for them when they were to become Queen the age of majority on Saturn is forty. So Chibi-Ranma and Sailor Saturn had to wait to get married.
  • Jerkass: General Fuji Sukai tried to kill two lost strangers just to advance his career goals.
  • Just Friends: During their time at Galaxy Academy Nabiki had to decide if she wanted this trope with Ranma or something more. Which was hard because given their volatile relationship before being transported to the past they had to evolve to this trope before she could figure out her feelings.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: When they first landed on Jurai Nabiki was forced to rely on Ranma for survival with him essentially becoming the brains of their team.
    • As Tokimi ominously suggested Happosai will receive this for sending Ranma and Nabiki to the past.
    • Chibi-Ranma received this for being an Annoying Younger Sibling Sgt. Floaty was a popular children's show however his teammates ghople are actual edible animals so when Chibi-Ranma who didn't like the show tauntedly ate some for lunch he ended up with him being attacked by the entire school
    Kids: He ate Sgt. Floaty! GET HIM!
    Chibi-Ranma: EEK!
  • Let's Wait a While: A one sided version Nabiki decided to wait to see if she wanted to be more than just friends. Sadly Ranma met and fell in love with Washu before she made her decision.
    • Luckily Washu doesn't mind sharing.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Out of the three children, it seems that Chibi-Ranma is the one that inherited the Saotomeness. Stealing food from his father and going on training trips.
  • Living Shadow: After a chaos gun blew up in his face Kain was transformed into this
  • Long Haired Prettyboy: Sugoroku Mutou Kuramitsu is this he even had his Ship alter his hair color, giving it three distinct colors. A trait he passed on to his kids.
  • Loophole Abuse: While the Chousin couldn't stop their experiment to find someone more powerful than them they could extend Ranma and Nabiki's lives so that they would survive long enough to reunite with Washu once the experiment ends.
  • Luke, You Are My Father: Chibi-Ranma to Ranma
  • Make It Look Like an Accident: This was how Misaka Kuramitsu was assassinated
    • Later Kain hired mercenaries to do this Ranma and Nabiki
  • Mama Bear: Played for laughs when Nabiki turned on the security force's to give them a huge what the hell hero for taking so long to rescue her kids only to be forced to stop as it was hard to make a case for protecting her children when they were behind her and continuing to abuse the would-be abductors.
    • Queen Pluto ensured that those who saw her grandson as a threat or an abomination were ... dealt with.
    • As Rei quickly found out you do not ever insinuate that the Senshi of Time's only son might be doing something evil.
  • Marry Them All: Hinata Urashima had planned this for her grandson.
  • Meaningful Name: Ranma Chaotica Kuramitsu was named after the fact that many believe that Tokimi is a Goddess of Chaos
    • Nabiki named her tree Iha-Naga, a Japanese Goddess who was the incredibly strong daughter of the mountain god Oho-Yama who wanted her to marry Ninigi. The rice-god preferred her younger sister Ko-no-Hana instead, and Iha-Naga cursed him.
    • Ranma was the one who suggested Enma's name as Enma was a Japanese deity who's supposed to rule the underworld, sort of like the Romans with Pluto or the Greeks with Hades.
    • It probably wasn't a good idea to name their daughter Hippolyta Artemis Kuramitsu

  • No-Sell: Chibi-Ranma not only caught Silence Glaive, but caught it on the blade
  • No Sympathy: Midori's ultimate goal is to save her clan from extinction which is why she joined the Jade Court in the first place (and most likely encouraged the Uchiha's to side with Hashirama and Tobirama over Madara) so she has no sympathy for the current branch who dwindled to basically nothing for trying an idiotic cue and when asked how Sasuke figured into her plan's she replied what about him
    Midori: He chose his path and now must follow it, no matter what it will cost him in the end. What happens to this branch of the Uchiha is none of my concern.

    • Plus she didn't want stretch marks on her ranma-chan
  • Pragmatic Villainy: This is what made Kain such a dangerous villain where his predecessors focused all their efforts in fighting Jurai allowing their wants, desires, and greed to control them.

They also introduced Beryl with other love interest allowing her to get over her obsession with Endymion. Unfortunately all this did was force Queen Metaria and Orichalcum to use actual mind control instead More Than Mind Control to enact the Great Fall
    Metallia: You would reject me?

No, this is about the fact that when it came down to it, you'd rather run away than accept your responsibility. I didn't ask you to marry me, but for some reason, I assumed you might want to be a part of this child's life.
    Tai: Yeah, like I'm going to believe that.
