THE STORY

Principal Kuno:
"Ha,ha,ha! You won't be fighting me this time!
It's not appropriate for a principal of my standing to be fighting anyway.
Tsk,tsk. Of course, some people can find happiness only through fighting...
that's why I'm Battle Coordinator.
Is that clear?"

 attack information is shown afterwards:


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 AKANE TENDO
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Akane is surrounded as usual by a hoard of boys asking her for a date. Her
 daily routine is to blast them off with a single blow. She pleaded with the
 Principal to impose tighter school discipline. As you might expect, the
 Principal has come up with something a little different..."

 Shippu Bakuretsuken            Charge PA, f/b, release PA
 Shoumakuuhaken                 Press NA + PA
 Nidan Mawashi Geri             f + PA


 - Nidan Mawashi Geri: A quick double roundhouse kick that moves slightly
   forward.
 - Shoumakuuhaken: Akane spins her arm around, then jumps into the air while
   punching straight up. A good anti-air attack.
 - Shippu Bakuretsuken: Akane spins her arm around, then quickly dashes across
   forward and punches. The longer the charge, the further the punch travels
   and the more damage it deals.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 GAMBLING KING
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "The King, a loser by nature, hasn't given up on his ambition to own a casino.
 He's been trying to improve his skill in foul play. He deals cards so
 perfectly that one might call it a deadly weapon. The Principal heard about it
 and..."

 Ten Bow                        Charge PA, f/b, release PA
 Joker Shower                   Jump backward, d + PA
 Chip Fan                       In air, tap NA rapidly


 - Ten Bow: King pulls out a bow and shoots a long, narrow card across
   the screen. The longer the charge, the faster the card travels.

   not travel very far. Cannot be used when jumping straight up or forward,
   but only jumping backward.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 GENMA SAOTOME (Mr. Panda)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Having a rebellious son like Ranma has been a big headache and heartache for
 Genma Saotome. After hearing the Principal's pep talk, Genma resolved to
 achieve his ultimate strength by any means available. In this way he could
 demonstrate his paternal dignity to the world. Even if it means transforming
 into a Panda!"

 Panda Hyakuretsu Ken           Tap NA or PA rapidly
 Chichi no Ikari                Close, NA + PA
 Panda Charge                   Charge PA, f/b, release PA


 - Panda Hyakuretsuken: A flurry of paw jabs that can hit multiple times.
   Using NA lasts slightly longer then PA.
 - Chichi No Ikari: Genma spins in the air and knocks down his opponent, then
   bounces on them with his rear end. Must be done up close to the opponent.
 - Panda Charge: Genma dashes forward and attacks with a tackle. The longer
   the charge, the longer the dash and the more damage it deals.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 HAPPOSAI (Hidden Character)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Happo Daikarin                 Charge PA, d, release PA
 Fireball                       Charge PA, f/b, release PA

 2 Dan Jump                     Press ub~uf  (perform 2 times)
 Sliding Kick                   df + PA


 - A hidden character, Happosai only appears in 1P mode as Pantyhose Tarou's
   final opponent, but can be played as in any mode using the Debug code (See
   the SECRETS AND TRICKS section). If you try to play 1P mode with Happosai
   and lose a match, the game freezes.
 - Sliding Kick: A quick sliding kick that doesn't travel very far.
 - Happo Daikarin: Happosai tosses a pineapple-shaped bomb forward, which
   explodes when it hits the ground. The longer the charge, the more bombs
   are thrown, the larger the blast and the more damage it does.
 - Fireball: Happosai tosses a tiny fireball across the screen. Charging
   longer will make the fireball slightly bigger, but not by much.
 - Battle Aura: Happosai grows immensely for a second and damages by touch.
   A good anti-air attack with nearly no lag time before or after.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 HIKARU GOSUNKUGI
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "When it comes to gloom and doom, Hikaru Gosunkugi is number one on the list at
 Furinkan High School. With a push from the principal, he's ready for his own
 personal pursuit, completely armed with candles tightly secured to his head.
 Now, he's full of dark power!"

 Daikaiten Waraningyou          Press NA + PA
 Waraningyou Nage               Charge PA, f/b, release PA

 - Daikaiten Waraningyou: Gosunkugi pulls out a straw doll and spins around
   while holding its legs. He moves slightly forward while doing this.
 - Waraningyou Nage: Gosunkugi pulls out a straw doll and tosses it across
   the screen. The longer the charge, the faster the doll travels across
   the screen.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 MOUSSE
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "A magician's life in Japan has got to be exciting, yet Mousse still feels
 unfulfilled. Being at a loss, he consulted a suspicious-looking fortune teller
 in a Hawaiian shirt..."

 Taka-zume Ken                  In air, d + PA
 Hyakuretsu Anki                Tap P rapidly
 Keiran Ken                     Charge PA, f/b, release PA
 (iron claw)                    f + PA


 - Iron Claw: Mousse extends three blades from his sleeve, then retracts
   them.
 - Keiran Ken: Mousse pulls out a chicken and tosses eggs at his opponent.
   The longer the charge, the more eggs are thrown and the more damage
   they deal.
 - Hyakuretsu Anki: A flurry of quick strikes with a variety of objects
   on sticks. Using NA lasts slightly longer than PA.
 - Taka-zume Ken: Mousse drops down-forward in the air with a pair of
   talons on his feet.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 PANTYHOSE TARO
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Pantyhose was given his name by Happosai, a mischievous elderly martial arts
 master. Now, if he could just find Happosai, make him take the name back, and
 give him a new one!"

 Senporaku                       f + PA
 Ippatsu Gyakuten Otokogeri      Press NA + PA
 Sukashiki Kikku                 d + PA


 - Sukashiki Kikku: A foot stomp that can be useful for damaging opponents
   directly below. Cannot be used when jumping straight up, but rather
   jumping left or right.
 - Senporaku: Pantyhose strikes forward with a pair of pantyhose, which
   has decent range.
 - Ippatsu Gyakuten Otokogeri: Pantyhouse launches himself forward with
   a blazing kick.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 PANTYHOSE TARO (Transformed)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Pantyhose fell into a spring haunted by a bull, a duck, a snake and a yeti.
 The combination might be more embarassing than his name!"

 Mougyuu Totsushin              Charge PA, f/b, release PA
 Jet Attack                     In air, d + PA


 - Mougyuu Totsushin: Pantyhose dashes forward with his head down, ramming
   across the screen with his horns. The longer the charge, the further the
   dash and the more damage dealt.
 - Jet Attack: A very cheap downward-diagonal flying punch that can be used
   anytime while jumping. It is quite easy to beat the entire game using only
   this move, since the computer rarely blocks it.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 RANMA SAOTOME (Boy-Type)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Thinking he would be excused from school exams if he could beat the fighters
 chosen by the Principal, Ranma firmly resolved to devote his time to martial
 arts training, rather than the pursuit of academic discipline."

 Hiryu Shoten Ha                Press NA + PA
 Tumbling Kick                  Charge PA, d, release PA
 Moko Takabisha                 Charge PA, f/b, release PA
 Tenshin Amaguri-Ken            Tap NA or PA rapidly
 2 Dan Jump                     Press ub~uf  (perform 2 times)
 (heel drop)                    In air, d + PA


 - Kachuu Tenshin Amaguriken: A rapid punch attack which can hit multiple
   times up close. Using NA lasts longer than PA.
 - Tumbling Kick: Ranma quickly rolls forward and does a low kick. The
   longer the charge, the further the roll travels and the more damage
   it deals.
 - Mouko Takabisha: Ranma creates brief energy sphere that sends
   opponents flying back. The size of the blast depends on the length
   of the charge.
 - Hiryuu Shoten Ha: Ranma creates a column of twirling flame around him.
   A good anti-air attack, although it leaves Ranma defenseless for a
   moment when the flame vanishes.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 RANMA SAOTOME (Girl-Type)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Thinking he would be excused from school exams if he could beat the fighters
 chosen by the Principal, Ranma firmly resolved to devote his time to martial
 arts training, rather than the pursuit of academic discipline."

 (heel drop)                    In air, d + PA


 - Kachuu Tenshin Amaguriken: A rapid punch attack which can hit multiple
   times up close. Using NA lasts longer than PA. Ranma-Chan covers a
   greater area with her punches than Ranma.
 - Rolling Elbow: Ranma-Chan quickly rolls forward and does an elbow strike.
   The longer the charge, the further the roll travels and the more damage
   it deals.
 - Mouko Takabisha: Ranma-Chan creates brief energy sphere that sends
   opponents flying back. The size of the blast depends on the length
   of the charge.
 - Hiryuu Shoten Ha: Ranma-Chan creates a column of flame around her.
   A good anti-air attack, although it leaves Ranma-Chan defenseless
   for a moment when the flame vanishes.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 RYOUGA HIBIKI
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Ryouga, the wanderer, accidentally lost his memory. He was taken in by the
 principal's slick talk and fooled into fighting faces from his past - even
 Akane, his heart-throb!"

 Shishi Hoko-Dan                Press NA + PA
 Bakusai-Ten-Ketsu              Charge PA, d, release PA
 Bandanna Nage                  Charge PA, f/b, release PA
 Kasa Tsuki                     f + PA
 Tobi Kasa Tsuki                In air, d + PA


 - Shishi Houkoudan: Ryouga shoots forward a quick blast of energy. Quick
   move, since no charging is required.
 - Bakusai Tenketsu: Ryouga strikes the ground and sends two bouncing waves
   of rock across the screen. Charging the attack longer adds a third wave,
   and makes the attack move slower across the screen.
 - Bandana Nage: Ryouga tosses a headband across the screen. Charging the
   attack longer throws threes bandanas instead of one, which creates a
   larger hit area.
 - Kasa Tsuki: Ryouga jabs forward with his umbrella.
 - Tobi Kasa Tsuki: Ryouga jabs downward with his umbrella while falling.
   Cannot be used when jumping straight up, but rather jumping left or right.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 SHAMPOO
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Even though she puts a lot of energy into researching arcane potions, Shampoo
 has yet to enchant Ranma's heart. Then, she discovered the great tradition of
 Chinese proverbs!"

 Mougeki Totsujinha             Charge PA, f/b, release PA
 Ryouga Retsushou Kyaku         NA + PA
 Kakato Otoshi                  In air, d + PA
 2 Dan Jump                     Press ub~uf  (perform 2 times)


 - Mougeki Totsujinha: Shampoo dashes forward and strikes twice with her
   lanterns. The longer the charge, the further the dash travels and the
   more damage it deals.
 - Ryouga Retsushou Kyaku: Shampoo does a handstand and pushes herself up
   with a rising kick. Good anti-air attack.
 - Kakato Otoshi: A mid-air foot stomp that is useful for hitting opponents
   directly under Shampoo. Cannot be used when jumping straight up, but
   rather jumping left or right.



 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 UKYO KUONJI
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Expanding business is no longer a dream! Ukyou owns an Okonomiyaki restaurant.
 Her business interest has been stimulated by the principal's slick talk. While
 Ukyou polishes her spatula, her heart is already sailing to the South Sea
 islands."

 Konjou Giri                    f + PA
 Kohera Nage                    Charge PA, f/b, release PA
 Tenkasu Kanshakudama Mikkusu   Charge PA, d, release PA


 - Konjou Giri: A spatula swipe that sends a short wave off the end of
   the spatula for a slightly longer reach.
 - Kohera Nage: Ukyou tosses a mini-spatula across the screen. Charging
   the attack longer throws threes mini-spatulas instead of one, which
   creates a larger hit area.
 - Tenkasu Kanshakudama Mikkusu: Ukyou tosses a ball of pepper to the
   ground, which explodes on contact and hits multiple times. Charging
   the attack longer has no effect.

 PLAY AS PANTYHOSE TAROU
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Beat the game once to unlock both versions of Pantyhose Tarou in
   1P Mode. Or, after you power up the game and while you are in the
   menu where you can choose between [1P][2P][Team Challenge][Options],
   press Up-Right-Down-Left-Up-X-Select. You will hear Ranma's voice to
   let you know that you've done the code correctly.  This allows
   you to play as Pantyhose Tarou without having to beat 1P Mode first.


 VIEW THE CINEMAS
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
   After you power up the game and while you are in the menu where
   you can choose between [1P][2P][Team Challenge][Options], press
   Select-X-Up-Left-Down-Right-Up (It's basically the code to play
   as Pantyhose Tarou in reverse). You will see the words "RANMA M OP"
   right above the options, and a cursor next to it. This allows you to
   play the "animation" sequences of the game, for each character, choosing
   from the Opening (OP), Losing (MK), Middle (MD), and Ending (ED).


 DEBUG MENU / PLAY AS HAPPOSAI
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
   In between any rounds/battles, press and hold the X, A, and R buttons,
   and a debug screen will show up, where you get to select the difficulty
   level, the stage, and most importantly, the characters you and your
   opponent are playing! This is the ONLY way you can play as Happosai.
   You can also change the player from computer to human and vice versa.
   The numbers don't seem to mean anything (Note:  Playing as Happosai
   in 1P Mode may yield some strange results).


 FIGHT THE CPU IN 2P AND TEAM CHALLENGE MODE
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Hold L and R on the Character Selection screen to change the other
   player's character. Press Y to select your computer-controlled opponent.

 LOSE:
 Boys asking Akane out for a date are likely to be greeted by kicks and punches.
 Look how they fly through the air with the greatest of ease!

 ENDING:
 Principal: "There have been a few changes in school rules. One is that from now on,
             there is to be no more fighting on school grounds.
             It looks like you're the first in line for disciplinary action!"
 Akane: "Hey, what are you talking about?"
 Principal: "'Rule No. Two...'"
 (Akane beats up the Principal)
 Principal: "All right, all right! I get the picture!"


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 King: "Hmm, I'm going to need a goodly amount of capital before I can open
        the casino of my dreams."

 King: "Huh...?, The principal, I presume."
 Principal: "If you can defeat eight opponents, I'll gladly loan you the money to
             open your casino!"
 King: "Are you serious? Sir, you are a gentleman and a scholar! Whom shall I
        defeat for you?"

 VS. GOSUNKUGI
 "This old geezer's pretty tough."

 ==BEFORE THE FINAL BATTLE==
 Principal: "Aloha! I just took the money for your casino and bet it all on your
             next fight!"
 King: "Oh, no! Who's my next opponent?"
 King realizes that the Principal has cheated him of his entire jackpot.

 LOSE:
 King ponders his fate and concludes that maybe, gambling is not such a good way
 to live after all.

 ENDING:
 The casino opens in a room right next to the Principal's office at school.
 ...But...
 King: "I can't defeat the cursed high school students...!"
 Bereft of all capital, King curses his own lack of skill.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 GENMA:
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Principal: "Aloha, no need to tell ME about ungrateful children.
             Whatever happened to honor thy father?
             It's a parent's duty to teach his children respect for his elders!"
 Genma: "You're absolutely right! I must be more strict with Ranma!
 Principal: "Here's a list of your son's friends. 'If you want to teach your son
             some respect, start with his peers first.' That's an old Hawaiian
             proverb, you know."
 Genma: "I'll show them all the error of their ways! They won't ever disrepect me again!"
 Of all the times in his life, Genma chooses his golden years in which to make a stand!

 VS. GOSUNKUGI
 "How could I have lost to a zoo exhibit!?"
 "('No need to make it personal. I just wish that pandas could talk...!')"
 GENMA EARNS ONE POINT OF RESPECT!

 VS. AKANE
 "You must outweigh me several times over."
 "('True skill is weightless. I just wish that pandas could talk...!')"
 GENMA EARNS ONE POINT OF RESPECT!

 VS. KING
 I folded...to a panda!"
 "('Strong like a mountain, that's me! I just wish that pandas could talk...!')"
 GENMA EARNS ONE POINT OF RESPECT!

 VS. SHAMPOO
 "Aiieee-! I can fight no more!"
 "('Senior citizens are people too! I just wish that pandas could talk...!')"
 GENMA EARNS ONE POINT OF RESPECT!

 VS. MOUSSE
 "You should be tranquilized, you vicious overgrown leaf-eater!"
 "('Hey, it takes all kinds. I just wish that pandas could talk...!')"
 GENMA EARNS ONE POINT OF RESPECT!

 VS. UKYOU
 "You're one strong panda."
 "('A slip of girl like you could never hope to defeat me. I just wish that
  pandas could talk...!')"
 GENMA EARNS ONE POINT OF RESPECT!

 VS. RYOUGA
 "I lost to a wild, uncivilized panda!"
 "('Listen buddy, I live in a house just like you do! I just wish that
  pandas could talk...!')"
 GENMA EARNS ONE POINT OF RESPECT!

 VS. RANMA
 "What a superb fight!"
 "('He sees the truth at last! I just wish that pandas could talk...!')"
 GENMA EARNS ONE POINT OF RESPECT!

 ==BEFORE THE FINAL BATTLE==
 Principal: "Aloha! Let me bring you one more unruly child who needs the
             benefit of your discipline..."
 Genma: "What-!?"

 LOSE:
 Like a bamboo in winter, Genma was completely devoid of protective footage.

 ENDING:
 Principal: "Ha,ha,ha. You may have had better luck applying discipline with
             your real body!"
 Posters warning citizens of a wild panda on the loose are seen all over
 the city.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 GOSUNKUGI:
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Principal: "Naturally, as your principal, I'm always ready to listen to
             the wishes of my students."
 Gosunkugi: "My wish...?Well, uh, it's about Akane, of course..."
 Principal: "When I was in Hawaii I did some research on the influence geographic
             polarities have over people's destinies. If you can defeat the eight
             opponents who will come to you from eight different directions, you
             will surely gain your heart's desire."
 Gosunkugi: "If it means that my wish will be granted, I'd fight anyone...
             even Akane herself!
             Heh heh heh... -Ahem. Is that selfish of me, do you think?"

 VS. KING
 "When the chips are down, the chips are down..."
 "Guess it's just not your lucky day! Heh heh heh..."
 GOSUNKUGI TRIUMPHS OVER THE SOUTH!

 VS. AKANE
 "Y-You,you defeated me!"
 "Woe is me! What have I done with this cursed hand of mine...!?"
 GOSUNKUGI TRIUMPHS OVER THE SOUTHWEST!

 VS. GENMA
 "...................."NOTE: PANDAS CAN'T SPEAK"................."
 "Never speak unless spoken to, that's my philosophy!"
 GOSUNKUGI TRIUMPHS OVER THE NORTHWEST!

 VS. SHAMPOO
 "Aiieee-! I can fight no more!"
 "I had no choice-my future happiness is on the line! Heh heh heh..."
 GOSUNKUGI TRIUMPHS OVER THE NORTHEAST!

 VS. MOUSSE
 "It must be an evil spell-!"
 "Behold the result of unrelenting daily practice with my weapon of choice!"
 GOSUNKUGI TRIUMPHS OVER THE WEST!

 VS. UKYO
 "You're pretty strong for a guy who spends all his time skulking around."
 "No more 'Mr. Personality' for me! Heh heh heh..."
 GOSUNKUGI TRIUMPHS OVER THE EAST!

 VS. RYOUGA
 "You wielded your mallet well."
 "I'll let you off with that for today. Heh heh heh..."
 GOSUNKUGI TRIUMPHS OVER THE NORTH!

 VS. RANMA
 "When the heck did you get so good...!?"
 "Never underestimate nerd-power! Heh heh heh..."
 GOSUNKUGI TRIUMPHS OVER THE SOUTHEAST!

 ==BEFORE THE FINAL BATTLE==
 Principal:
 "Aloha! Another person destined to thwart your desires has suddenly appeared!"
 Gosunkugi: "Yeah, yeah. I just knew this was gonna happen..."

 LOSE:
 Gosunkugi: "A curse upon you, a curse upon you all-!"
 Gosunkugi continues to wield his mallet.
 This guy makes mildew seem cheerful.

 ENDING:
 Dressed up as a girl, the Principal comes running up to Gosunkugi with outstretched arms.
 Principal: "Hello there! It's me, Akane!"
 Gosunkugi: "Somebody wake me up from this nightmare...!"
 Gosunkugi stops dead in his tracks.
 (Gosunkugi prepares his mallet and nail)

 HAPPOSAI:
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (Happosai doesn't have a story or ending in 1P MODE! ^_^)

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 MOUSSE:
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 A fortune teller gazes into a crystal ball.
 ???: "...Yes,yes, it's all becoming clearer...a boy-girl with a ponytail...
       a panda...a gambler...a cat-like girl...a doll...Japanese pancakes...
       a black pig...a girl training in a dojo...
       -ALOHA! ON NO!"
 Mousse: "If I can defeat them all, do you really see happiness in my future?"
 Wake up, Mousse! He's about as convincing as a fish in a dress.
 ???: "It's in the stars! I give you my personal guarantee!"
 Mousse: "Anyone who gets in my way will end up as another notch on my weapons belt!"
 With a list of his opponents firmly in mind, Mousse starts down the road of
 his future happiness...

 VS. GOSUNKUGI
 "Are you happy now?"
 "Delirious!"
 MOUSSE DEFEATS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO PREVENTS HIS HAPPINESS!

 VS. AKANE
 "You showed not the slightest bit of mercy..."
 "Maybe if you acted more like a lady...!"
 MOUSSE DEFEATS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO PREVENTS HIS HAPPINESS!

 VS. GENMA
 "...................."NOTE: PANDAS CAN'T SPEAK"................."
 "Looks like the cat's got his tongue."
 MOUSSE DEFEATS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO PREVENTS HIS HAPPINESS!

 VS. SHAMPOO
 "Aiieee-! I can fight no more!"
 "Show me a little respect, will ya?"
 MOUSSE DEFEATS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO PREVENTS HIS HAPPINESS!

 VS. KING
 "Lady Luck has deserted me..."
 "Ha! Didn't fall for any of your tricks, did I!"
 MOUSSE DEFEATS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO PREVENTS HIS HAPPINESS!

 VS. UKYOU
 "You're a pretty strong guy."
 "C'mon, swing that spatula at me again!"
 MOUSSE DEFEATS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO PREVENTS HIS HAPPINESS!

 VS. RYOUGA
 "Not bad, four-eyes."
 "It's child's play beating someone who has no clue which end's up!"
 MOUSSE DEFEATS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO PREVENTS HIS HAPPINESS!

 VS. RANMA
 "What a superb use of weapons!"
 "You're not worthy of being my opponent!"
 MOUSSE DEFEATS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO PREVENTS HIS HAPPINESS!

 ==BEFORE THE FINAL BATTLE==
 ???: "...It's all becoming hazy...I think it's saying that the winner
       of the next match will surely find happiness at last."
 Mousse: "What the heck is that thing!?"

 LOSE:
 Alone and without joy, Mousse spends the rest of his life
 polishing his weapon in silent contemplation.

 ENDING:
 (Mousse sneaks up on the fortune teller, who, if you haven't guessed
 it by now, is really the Principal.)
 Obviously, there are no such things as Hawaiian gypsies.
 Mousse: "You're some kind of sicko! You were only playing with me!"
 Principal: "Aloha! It's all becoming clear...I'm going to be attacked by a duck!"

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 PANTYHOSE TAROU:
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Tarou: "Aloha, I can't endure it any longer! This name will be the death of me!"
 Principal: "If you can gather the signatures of the eight people I've selected,
             you can make the person who named you choose another!"
 Tarou: "My mother always told to me beware of strange Hawaiians..."

 VS. GOSUNKUGI
 "How could I lose to someone named 'Pantyhose'...!"
 "G-r-r-r, there's no pleasure in taking your measure."
 PANTYHOSE GAINS ONE SIGNATURE!

 VS. AKANE
 "I lost! It not just your name that's incredible...!"
 "G-r-r-r, if you think that was bad, don't ever get me REALLY mad!"
 PANTYHOSE GAINS ONE SIGNATURE!

 VS. GENMA
 "...................."NOTE: PANDAS CAN'T SPEAK"................."
 "I can't rhyme if you don't say anything."
 PANTYHOSE GAINS ONE SIGNATURE!

 VS. SHAMPOO
 "Aiieee-! I can fight no more!"
 "G-r-r-r, the Amazon's a Barbie doll!"
 PANTYHOSE GAINS ONE SIGNATURE!

 VS. KING
 "He trumped me!"
 "G-r-r-r, this cheater's a bleater!"
 PANTYHOSE GAINS ONE SIGNATURE!

 VS. MOUSSE
 "My attacks had no effect against him!"
 "G-r-r-r, you move like molasses wearing those glasses!"
 PANTYHOSE GAINS ONE SIGNATURE!

 VS. UKYOU
 "What a strong guy you are."
 "G-r-r-r, you should be cooking, not right-hooking!"
 PANTYHOSE GAINS ONE SIGNATURE!

 VS. RYOUGA
 "Even though I have such a nice name, I lost!"
 "G-r-r-r, it's just like you to lose the way."
 PANTYHOSE GAINS ONE SIGNATURE!

 VS. RANMA
 "What a superb fight!"
 "G-r-r-r, I'm too complete to defeat!"
 PANTYHOSE GAINS ONE SIGNATURE!



 ==BEFORE THE FINAL BATTLE==
 Happosai: "I believe these signatures are forgeries!
            Why don't you forget about the petition and go directly after
            the person who named you in the first place?"
 Pantyhose realizes that Happosai has pulled the nylons right over his eyes.

 LOSE:
 Many things would be unknown during the rest of his life but one thing was certain-
 Johnny Pantyhose might not be the most popular of men,
 but he could always make people laugh by telling them his name.

 ENDING:
 Tarou: "All right, old man! Give me my new name right now!"
 Happosai: "Johnny...Johnny Pantyhose."
 The old man faints.
 Tarou: "Hey, wake up! Wake up already!"
 Johnny Pantyhose punches and kicks the old man but he doesn't stir.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 RANMA SAOTOME:
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Ranma: "Principal, is it true that gifted students don't have to take exams?"
 Principal: "Aloha, news travels fast. Let me explain.
             If you can mange to defeat the eight opponents I've chosen,
             you don't have to take the exam for that subject.
             What do you think of that?
             I bet it sounds like a pretty sweet deal for someone like you, huh?
             Ha,ha,ha!"
 Ranma: "Okay, I'll take you up on it!"
 In order to be excused from exams, Ranma's determined to defeat anyone the
 Principal throws at him!

 VS. GOSUNKUGI
 "Ranma, it's not nice to pick on people weaker than you are!"
 "You should talk, swinging nails around like that-!"
 RANMA RECEIVES CREDIT FOR P.E. CLASS!

 VS. AKANE
 "Ranma, I just can't bear the humilation!"
 "Heh heh. Sorry'bout that, Akane."

 "So long as it isn't gambling, I can't lose!"
 RANMA RECEIVES CREDIT FOR MATH CLASS!

 ==BEFORE THE FINAL BATTLE==
 Kouchou:
"Even if you are excused from exams, you still need the principal's signature."
 Ranma: "Huh-?"
 Ranma realizes that the Principal has made a fool of him.

 LOSE:
 Ranma must endure make-up test madness!

 ENDING:
 Principal: "You're g-r-r-r-reat!
             But playing hooky is no way to go through life, son.
             Sorry, no extra credit."
 (Ranma punches the Principal through the window!)
 Ranma: "What-!?
         You tricked me, you jerk!"
 Principal: OUCH!

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 RYOUGA HIBIKI:
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Ryouga finds himself in the Principal's office.
 Ryouga: "W-where's the exit!? Oww, my head-!"
 Principal: "Aloha! Sorry! I thought you were a burglar."
 Ryouga: "Where am I...? Who am I...? My mind's a total blank..."
 Principal: "My goodness! You seem to have come down with amnesia!"
 Ryouga: "What am I going to do...?"
 Principal: "You have several opponents waiting whom you must defeat."
 Ryouga: "Oh, I see."
 With no more sense than a chick just out of its shell,
 Ryouga swallows the Principal's story just like it was birdseed.

 VS. GOSUNKUGI
 "Well, isn't that bandanna just too conceited for words!"
 "Am I really conceited...?"
 RYOUGA COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE TRUTH!

 VS. AKANE
 "Why did you pick a fight with me?"
 "I'm sorry, I'm sure there must be a reason...-Arrgh, I can't remember anything!"
 RYOUGA COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE TRUTH!

 VS. GENMA
 "...................."NOTE: PANDAS CAN'T SPEAK"................."
 "I guess you're the strong, silent type."
 RYOUGA COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE TRUTH!

 VS. SHAMPOO
 "Aiieee-! I can fight no more!"
 "I've seen you somewhere...-Arrgh, I cant remember!"
 RYOUGA COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE TRUTH!

 VS. MOUSSE
 "I don't see you for the longest time and then you greet me with an attack...!"
 "Do you know who I am?"
 RYOUGA COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE TRUTH!

 VS. UKYOU
 "You're as good as my darling Ranma!"
 "I've seen you somewhere, I just know it!"
 RYOUGA COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE TRUTH!

 VS. KING
 "I can't be defeated by just any knave, you know!"
 "Hey, you're right! I'm not just any knave!"
 RYOUGA COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE TRUTH!

 VS. RANMA
 "What a superb fight, P-"
 "Oww-! Why does that ring such a nasty bell!?"
 RYOUGA COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE TRUTH!

 ==BEFORE THE FINAL BATTLE==
 Ryouga: "Will you tell me who I am?"
 Principal: "Defeat one more opponent and all will become known!"
 Ryouga: "Uh...all right."

 LOSE:
 Ryouga: "When amnesiacs get hit over the head, they usually get their memory back.
          I guess it didn't work on me."
         "What in the world am I fighting against you for...!?"

 ENDING:
 Ryouga: "Hey, you promised-!
          Oww-! You're a psychopath!"
 Principal: "Aloha, my precious palm tree...!"
 Ryouga: "It's all coming back to me! You're the one who hit me back there...!"

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 SHAMPOO:
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Principal: "Once upon a time, eight warriors were discussing which of them
             were the strongest.
             A fisherman came by and told them that one arrow can kill a bird,
             but eight arrows...
             well, eight arrows would be too heavy and probably wouldn't fly very far.
             The eight warriors listened and nodded in agreement.
             They stayed in the forest a long time, sitting together in front of
             a tree stump."
 Shampoo: "Yes, yes. I see. What a moving story."
 Principal: "The moral is, if a strong person hits you with his left hand,
             you should strike back twice as hard with your right."
            "Speaking of which, I'm going to name eight strong people whom
             you should defeat.
             If you can manage it, it'll prove that it's you who's the strongest
             of them all!
             Are you up to the challenge?"
 Shampoo: "If I'm the strongest, then Ranma will respect me for sure!"

 VS. GOSUNKUGI
 "My powers have grown weak..."
 "He who curses first, wipmps out first."
 SHAMPOO DID ONE THING RIGHT!

 VS. AKANE
 "I should have trained harder..."
 "It is the wise woman who learns from her mistakes."
 SHAMPOO DID ONE THING RIGHT!

 VS. GENMA
 "...................."NOTE: PANDAS CAN'T SPEAK"................."
 "Silence is golden, dear panda."
 SHAMPOO DID ONE THING RIGHT!

 VS. KING
 "Daughter of China, you have completely overrun me."
 "Confucius say, Good things come to those who wait."
 SHAMPOO DID ONE THING RIGHT!

 VS. MOUSSE
 "What did I ever do to you!?"
 "Sit awhile and meditate on the sound of one mallet striking."
 SHAMPOO DID ONE THING RIGHT!

 VS. UKYOU
 "You're pretty strong."
 "Try sticking to your business from now on."
 SHAMPOO DID ONE THING RIGHT!

 VS. RYOUGA
 "Guess I've just lost my touch."
 "Acceptance is the first step toward a cure."
 SHAMPOO DID ONE THING RIGHT!

 VS. RANMA
 "What a superb punch you've got."
 "How sweet of you to notice!"
 SHAMPOO DID ONE THING RIGHT!

 ==BEFORE THE FINAL BATTLE==
 Principal: "Aloha! It looks like I misinterpreted the proverb! It's just one
             bad thing after another for you, my girl.
             Let's just start anew, shall we? Good luck!"
 Shampoo: "It is written that proverbs are the key to deeper understanding, but..."

 LOSE:
 Shampoo studies the code of conduct for Amazon-type women once more and
 thinks about the proper path her life should take.
 Shampoo: "Confucius say, Life's a bowl of cherries.
           Mine is nothing but the pits."

 ENDING:
 Shampoo: "Oh, I can't do anything right."
 Principal: "On the contrary, I didn't do a single thing, and yet, thanks to
             you, my coconut runneth over with joy!"

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 UKYOU KUONJI:
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Ukyou: "I'm sure that my stength can make any business a sucesss."
 Principal: "How about it? If you can prove than you're stronger than me,
             I'll sponsor your restaurant. Okay?"!"
 Ukyou: "Hey, I'm an opportunist! I'll take anyone on! Bring'em on, bring'em on, already!"
 Ukyou's business spirit burns like the flame she uses to cook with.

 VS. GOSUNKUGI
 "You didn't have to smack me with your spatula, you know."
 "I've seen cabbage with more courage than you!"
 UKYOU COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO EXPANDING HER BUSINESS!

 VS. AKANE
 "How did you become so powerful...?"
 "My will burns as brightly as my gas stove!"
 UKYOU COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO EXPANDING HER BUSINESS!

 VS. GENMA
 "...................."NOTE: PANDAS CAN'T SPEAK"................."
 "Gee, this guy isn't much of a talker."
 UKYOU COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO EXPANDING HER BUSINESS!

 VS. SHAMPOO
 "You've shown me the true spirit of a Japanese business woman."
 "I don't wear this getup for nothing, you know."
 UKYOU COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO EXPANDING HER BUSINESS!

 VS. MOUSSE
 "You had me jumping around like I was on a hot griddle."
 "And if you're not careful, you'll get overcooked."
 UKYOU COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO EXPANDING HER BUSINESS!

 VS. KING
 "You float as lightly as seaweed flakes and your attacks are as pungent
  as dried bonito.
  You're a feast for the senses!"
 "My sauce isn't bad, either."
 UKYOU COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO EXPANDING HER BUSINESS!

 VS. RYOUGA
 "I bow to your superior handling."
 "I am pretty good with my spatula, aren't I!"
 UKYOU COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO EXPANDING HER BUSINESS!

 VS. RANMA
 "What a superb attack, Ukyou dear."
 "You must allow me to treat you to dinner someday."
 UKYOU COMES ONE STEP CLOSER TO EXPANDING HER BUSINESS!

 ==BEFORE THE FINAL BATTLE==
 Ukyou: "I did it... I defeated them all, just as I said I would."
 Principal: "Aloha! I just remembered one other opponent I want you to defeat."

 LOSE:
 Ukyou: "I'm more suited to plying my spatula in a humble neighborhood restuarant anyway."
 Alone, Ukyou kneads flour.

 ENDING:
 The Principal visits Ukyou's shop.
 Principal: "Ha,ha,ha! I just love the taste of traditional Japanese cooking!"
 Ukyou: "You said you'd sponsor my business, and yet all you do is come here and
         leech free meals of me everyday!
         I never want to see your face again!"
