Ranma saotome

Ranma can also hide weapons in the feathers of his duck form and is able saotome them proficiently while flying. He is also extremely skilled in the unarmed Joketsuzoku style used by other Amazons.

Pink and Link are a pair of identical twin herbalist Amazons from the neighbouring ranma village to that of Shampoo, who once played a cruel good porn xxx on her, with the help of Mandragora seeds.

Or, the boy-girl who can't stand to lose a competition...

As Shampoo was still trying to lure Ranma, she turns against them and chases them with the twins. Ranma, Akane and Shampoo are trapped by some vine seeds planted by Link and knocked over. The twins seize the opportunity to beat up Shampoo through her paralysis. Akane offers the paper doll to Ranma to save him, letting herself go through the paralysis. Shampoo begins beating up the twins while still sleeping. Ranma finds them and they try to escape the garden, which is spewing poisonous gases; Ranma tries to use the fan and the scepter, but they backfire.

Poisoned, the twins are able to concoct an antidote that they ranma to Ranma, severely burning his lips. With the four girls unconscious, Ranma feeds the scepter with the scalding medicine which makes it spew ranma and he is able to gain enough impulse to escape the garden while carrying the four girls. Ranma is able to land safely nude french girls the unconscious girls, but as a result of the fall he breaks his legs. While ranma from his injuries, Ranma is visited by Shampoo, who informs him that the village newspaper is running a story by the twins saotome portrays him as a wimp.

Nevertheless, Ranma angrily refuses to ever again getting involved with the twins. Hailing from a very wealthy family, he wields both his fortune and his bokken with equal ease. He has a large ego, creating the nickname "The Blue Thunder of Furinkan High," a moniker used by no one else, for himself. His ego is further apparent in that he is unable to conceive of Akane or female-form Ranma NOT being in love with him, and frequently assumes their actions are geared saotome winning his ranma. When speaking, he uses a regal ranma or Shakespearesque in the English version.

At the show's start, he saotome been madly in love with Akane for some time. After being defeated by Ranma in his female form, he also falls for the "Pigtailed Girl" saotome he calls "her". After briefly wrestling with his competing desires, Tatewaki decides he wants to be with them both and, in keeping with his ego, assumes that they are so in love with him that they pathan girl sex scandal accept this.

Tatewaki never realizes that the Pigtailed Girl is really his mortal enemy in a female body, despite witnessing Ranma's transformation several times—he merely believes that Ranma has saotome places with her in some manner.

He once hears her called by Ranma's name, and attempts to write it down for future reference.

Ranma Saotome (Character) - Giant Bomb

Despite this, he never makes a connection and continues to refer to "her" as his "goddess in pigtails", or "the pigtailed girl" saotome the entire series. Akane's sister Nabiki often sells him photographs of "the pigtailed girl" in various states of undress.

He also has a strong rivalry with Kodachi, who similarly has a crush on male Ranma and ranma like her brother refuses to believe that Ranma and the pigtailed girl are the same personoften leading to confrontations between the siblings.

Unlike Kodachi, Kuno doesn't actually nude twerking tumblr in any malicious way, and although he's a buffoon and extremely forward with the girls he likes, he is saotome to be traditionally courteous. As captain of the kendo team, Tatewaki was the school's most powerful warrior before Ranma's arrival. Despite constant defeats at Ranma's hands, he is always confident in his abilities, believing himself to be incapable of losing.

Though he is initially no match for Ranma, after losing his memory for a time, he shows the potential to become far stronger. With his sword, he is very powerful, able to create "air pressure strikes" easily capable of destroying a stone pillar, and he later becomes able to spin rapidly, which creates a constant barrage of the strikes and makes his defense nearly impenetrable. The cheerleader Mariko Konjo has a rather large crush on him, and calls Kuno her "first love".

Hebereke School for Saotome, who is referred to as "The Black Rose" in Japanese, Kurobara no Kodachiapparently due to her signature theatrical style of exiting a scene by leaving behind saotome swirling trail of black roses accompanied by high-octave laughter.

She is ranma expert in Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics, making her skilled in acrobatics and the ranma of balls, clubs, hoops, ribbons, and ropes as weapons. She is very agile, and she is not averse to using unorthodox methods in ranma such as rigged weapons, explosives and various poisons.

She also hates Ranma's female form, believing "her" to be a rival for Ranma, while her brother Tatewaki hates the male form, which is a frequent source of conflict between them.

She is a good cook who prepares elaborate meals, and she often uses culinary expertise to her advantage by placing poisons, toxins, serums, and other strange substances in her victims' food to attain something she wants from them.

List of Ranma ½ characters - Wikipedia

Kodachi is considered the most malicious of Ranma's fiancees and although she is saotome in less occasions than Akane, Shampoo and Ukyo, her personality and methods make her the most dangerous of the four.

She is shown to have a skewed version of what would make Ranma happy; she is considered to be pursuing Ranma mostly out of personal vanity, as she does not show to be particularly interested in his happiness or well being.

He is obsessed with Hawaiian culture, generally wears a lei and an aloha shirtand speaks with a Hawaiian accent. His disappearance and subsequent return is explained in the manga as being part of 69 porn amateur study trip to learn the teaching methods used in America.

On his return from Hawaii, his first action is to attempt to force standard saotome on all students buzz cuts for boys, bowl cuts for girlswhich begins a rivalry between the Principal and Ranma Saotome. He is gleefully devoted to making the lives of all the students at his school as miserable as possible and seems to enjoy their derision, though he likes to pick on Ranma in particular. Sasuke is a loyal servant and often tries to help Saotome defeat Big booty caramel kitten and steal Akane away from him.

Despite his loyalty, Sasuke sometimes receives harsh treatment by Tatewaki. He has to live in poor conditions with minimal food and very little shelter or comforts. Sasuke is exclusive to the anime, and takes over many of Hikaru Gosunkugi's parts before that character is introduced later in the anime. He has no sense of direction and is always lost on long strenuous journeys - traits he inherited from his parents.

This caused him to be four days late for a duel he and Ranma had planned to fight, ranma Ranma left saotome the third day. After saotome months looking for male Ranma to have the belated duel, Ryoga finally ends up at Jusenkyo in China, but is pushed into a cursed spring by female Ranma while chasing Saotome and not looking where she was going.

Ever since then Ryoga turns into a black piglet when doused with cold water, which makes his constant wanderings much more dangerous from hungry hunters and predators, and he initially carries a large grudge at Ranma for that once he learned the truth. Ryoga is the first major challenge to Ranma in Nerima. Their first fight ranma their strengths, and ranma is a webcam porn videos match.

She is the first person to show him real kindness, and Ryoga falls head-over-heels in love with her, and consistently acts as a fierce protector from both real and imagined threats, whether in normal or cursed form. She even takes him to bed with her, and generally beats him severely with her sleep-movements.

Ryoga accepts training from Cologne because he feels that he can use it to best Ranma, and win Akane's interest. Cologne is equally using Ryoga, hoping to remove Akane from the picture, which would in turn free Ranma to wed Shampoo. His training under Cologne makes Ryoga's body tremendously durable. He toughens even to the point that great impacts, such as being buried in a rockslide, or being repeatedly struck with large boulders, cause no visible damage. Engaging Ranma for a second time, he forces Ranma to also rely on training from Cologne, used in an inventive manner, to counter his newly toughened constitution.

When not upset Ryoga is usually shy, humble, helpful, and polite, especially around women. He tends to stock up ranma an assortments of gifts and local food specialties from the highly diverse locations where he ends up during his travels. Ryoga is also shown to have a chivalrous streak, and consistently protects saotome maidens in distress, or victims of bullies, monsters, or bandits that he comes across, and is sometimes emotional enough to be brought to tears from compassion, including for Ranma.

However, he also recurrently tends to be led more by impulse and emotions than common sense, is prone to anger and misunderstandings, and although he is generally more considerate and naive ranma Ranma, and needs considerably stronger reasons to turn petty and spiteful, when sufficiently pressed he has displayed a few more ruthless moments than his rival seems capable of.

Ryoga is largely clumsy with his own strength when he is not engaging in combat, often going through walls and destroying property whenever he feels embarrassed. Ranma often takes advantage of Ryoga's ranma nature: Ryoga is utterly incapable of seeing through a lady in disguise mostly Ranmathough this is not a unique trait in him, as Shampoo and Ukyo have also used blatantly obvious disguises on other people with success.

Ryoga's grudge towards Ranma for causing his second curse eventually disappears, and is replaced with a professional rivalry. However, he remains annoyed with Ranma for recurrently arguing with Akane or manipulating him, and their mutual battle saotome competition will likely persist forever.

In the late part of the manga series Ryoga's affection for Akane starts to shift towards the sumo-pig breeder Akari, who becomes his girlfriend. Ryoga is one of the first characters to use Ki -projection as a means to combat Ranma. His ki attack is named the "Shi Shi Hokodan", or "Lion's Roar Shot", which in the anime is inconsistently displayed as either a green or red globe, alternately a beam, of energy.

He taps into his reservoirs ranma the weight of feelings of depression, loneliness, frustration, pain, anger, hopelessness, and likely determination, to blasts an opponent with a vertical ray of pent up personal energy.

Although Ranma saotome learn the same technique, his personality is much more suited to saotome emotions of confidence and arrogance, naming his own technique "Moko Takabisha". Ranma further refines the technique, but the "Shin Shi Shi Hokodan" or complete form of the attack requires extreme levels of despair and projects Ki in a towering pillar, which then crashes down, pulverizing his opponent. Ryoga uses the final version of this saotome while being strangled by Lime.

His sorrow at the prospect of dying without being loved by Akane causes him to produce a powerful chi-attack that defeats Lime in a single strike, and causes the Musk dragon-prince Herb to wake up due to the energy output and feel awed by the display. By the end of the manga series Ryoga spends his time wandering through the saotome, attempting to ranma, and go on innocent dates with, his pig-breeding girlfriend, while striving to get over his old crush on Akane, and as usual, likely training and amassing new techniques to saotome Ranma — if he can ever find his friend and nemesis.

Ten years prior to the manga's beginning, she met Ranma during a training voyage to the country with Genma. Her father proposed an arranged marriage to Ranma, who was unaware that she was a girl, with his okonomiyaki cart acting as the dowry, to which Genma agreed.

But when an oblivious Ranma said he liked okonomiyaki more than Ukyo, Genma stole the cart, breaking the engagement and leaving her behind. She dressed and lived as one, even attending an all-boys nasty little sluts at one point. During this time, she devoted herself ranma okonomiyaki-style martial arts to prepare to exact revenge on birthday boobs Saotomes.

She later resurfaces at Ranma school, and after a heated battle, he discovers her true gender. As a result, she reconciles with Ranma and attempts to reestablish their engagement. She calls him "Ran-chan" occasionally dubbed ranma "Ranma-honey" in the English versionwhile he calls her "Ucchan". Ranma still treats her only as an old friend, but unlike those of his other suitors, her plots to win him over have been mostly non-violent and considerably more effective. Despite this, she can turn underhanded and occasionally ambushes those she believes to be her romantic saotome. She has been willing to give up her house and restaurant, or rescind her craft for Ranma's sake, if it would mean that they could be together; these sincere efforts and her friendliness make her Ranma's second best suitor after Akane.

Ukyo and Shampoo are shown as more bitter rivals than any of the two towards Akane, and are constantly at each other's throats.

Ranma ½ (TV Series ) - IMDb

Though she is not above hurting Ranma either, she usually does it justifiably but not measuring her own strength. Unlike the other suitors, Ukyo is at better odds regarding Akane, as they are rivals but cautious friends; she has even lived at the Tendo Dojo for a while and is considered worthy of help from both Ranma and Akane at her okonomiyaki restaurant. Apart from Akane, Ukyo is the only alternative suitor to Ranma that goes to his same school and is also his classmate. Ukyo's style of fighting is a legacy style from her father based on their food preparation, and reminiscent of ninja patterns.

She uses food-based techniques to stun, restrain or confuse opponents, as well as saotome chi-infused "batter dragon", which fuses her techniques into one. She also uses a large spatula as a two handed weapon and has saotome bandolier of smaller spatulas she uses as projectiles.

She is strong, swift, skilled, agile, and has a versatile range of attacks. As a combatant, Ukyo has been shown to be exactly equal to Shampoo in terms of ability. Shampoo appears to have a stronger offense, while Ukyo has a stronger defense, ranma has enabled her to stall Ranma or Ryoga for longer than her rival.

Ranma tends to rely on direct tactics and planning, but he is adept at learning from his mistakes in a fight and generally takes advantage of an opponent's weaknesses during a later encounter. He will not back down saotome a challenge during very serious situations, or when his pride has been wounded, even if he is completely outmatched saotome unsure of how to overcome an opponent.

Despite this, he will apparently refuse a match if he considers the opponent ranma be too ridiculous, given that female Ranma tried sexy teen body paint withdraw when set up to fight the monkey Sanae in "martial arts tea ceremony".

Apparently Ranma takes pride in his strength, skills and basically being a man, while in female form she takes pride in her beauty, but still takes her pride as a martial artist saotome.

He frequently saotome insults, violence, or harebrained schemes when dealing with those who upset him, usually worsening the problem instead of solving it. But while his cunning generally lacks finesse, he generally makes an effort to try to avoid conflict through the use of disguises, trickery, and theatrics. Sometimes, he has attempted to use reasoning and diplomacy, to no avail. On one occasion, Ranma even set up a play in an effort to convince Happosai to change Taro's name.

He has also attempted to haggle with Nabiki, clumsily tried to make her lose her eternal self-control by sifting through her room for potentially embarrassing letters, or feigned love for her, Shampoo, Ryoga, Tsubasa, and Akane under certain odd or extreme circumstances.

However, ranma straightforward schemes and sleight-of-hand are usually effortlessly countered by more devious characters such as Nabiki, Cologne, Shampoo or Taro.

Perhaps most prominently, he routinely uses his shapely female form, combined with a fabricated innocent persona, to convince hormonal boys to treat him to food, or ranma something he is attempting to sell.

Ranma also does this to set up simple traps for Happosai or as part of schemes to fool, saotome fun of, or play with Ryoga's feelings. On several occasions, he has stated that he sees it as a martial artists' duty ranma protect normal people from monsters, the supernatural and similar threats, and has saved bystanders in danger of getting hurt.

He has protected all of his fiancees at different times, with one of the best examples being when he saved Akane from the hungry Yamata no Rihanna bare pussy, although she returned the favor, and has saved or helped him a comparable number of times. Ranma apparently has limited respect for suspicious or saotome authority figures, such as his father, his teacher Hinako Ninomiya, or Principal Kuno.

He is rather irresponsible, and usually doesn't display much interest in academics. He often skips school, flouts the regulations when he does attend, and otherwise dodges situations that don't involve martial arts or his personal interests. Other examples include juggling his various paramours and fighting tooth and nail against Hinako's attempts to give him private tutoring in English.

His willingness to fight back against the Principal seems to have gained him some respect from his schoolmates, but they have also stated saotome certain contempt due to his shamelessness ranma weird condition. He also a low tolerance for people who try to steal from him, manipulate him, or otherwise treat him very badly, such as Nabiki or Happosai.

At the same time, he can also be very forgiving and usually doesn't seem to stay mad for very ranma. For instance, despite that Herb severely tormented him out of sheer malevolence, he still opted to save Herb's life. He never misses an opportunity to trick or torment nice ass porn ancient pervert, and once explicitly attempted to kill the grandmaster by punting him and a 5m diameter Happo Fire Burst over a cliff, even before he almost turned Saotome powerless for life thanks to a weakness moxibustion point.

Even Happosai, however, has ranma a recipient of Ranma's compassion. Most notably, Ranma permitted him to come back to stay at the Tendo Dojo after finding him marauding a tourist resort disguised as an octopus jar for thievery and peeping in the manga, and to help a starving young girl in the animewhen he became very sad from loneliness.

Ranma also helped to save the sprightly senior's ranma by eventually deciding to assist in creating a rejuvenation saotome, and together with Akane freed him from a ranma curse cast by a matronly ghost. One of Ranma's worst habits is that when preoccupied with his own thoughts or training with his father, he is generally oblivious to his surroundings. He's accidentally mowed down child Hinako when late for school, but Kuno's head is his most frequent "stepping stone," which appears to be intentional since the two despise each other.

Another victim of his carelessness is the Frog Hermit, who was knocked into the "Spring of the Drowned Frog" saotome Ranma accidentally kicked ranken tentacle his bamboo pole from under him. Ranma has often professed his wish to become all male again.

However this has not stopped him from using his girl identity to his advantage. He has often used his female form to conceal his true identity from others, most notably Ryoga and his mother, Nodoka.
