Ryouga Hibiki - PL 7
Horrible Sense of Direction: Ryouga gets lost even more easily than his already low Awareness score would indicate. Generally speaking, whenver he tries to go somewhere, he will wind up somewhere else. He only arrives at his actual destination when the GM decides he does.
Jusenkyo Curse: Whenever he is splashed with cold water, Ryouga changes into a small and helpless (but incredibly cute) black piglet called P-Chan. Warm water reverses the transformation.
Secret: While P-Chan, Ryouga is Akane's pet. She has no idea, although almost everyone else has known for quite some time.

I have to say that perhaps a full PL between Ranma and Ryouga is a bit too much, I think that half a PL will be more appropriate, but that's just me. My only other nitpick is about complications, one of the key differences between the two is that Ryouga has a very strict code of honor - which usually cases him to do stupid things - while Ranma tend to a more carefree approach.
Jabroniville wrote:Nice work so far- anime characters are more difficult than comic book characters to pin down in PL by a WAYS- manga writers tend to just throw crazy feats out there without thinking about them, have MUCH more established "Tiers" (Japanese are obsessed with tiers... even their pro wrestling, sports manga and fighting manga all have these specific tiers that guys are locked in to), and a tendency (especially in boys' manga) to give guys a notable upgrade in power with EVERY arc. So a PL 8 Ranma fits as well as a PL 11 Ranma would- it all depends on which storyline, which era, and which interpretation you want to go with.
Blitz wrote:I've never seen the anime, only read the manga, but there is no single story arc where I would rate Ranma below an 11, and that's being conservative. In terms of strength, agility, and toughness, he compares favorably to Spider-Man, but he's a better fighter.
This is a response to Jabroniville, not trying to tell you what to do with your builds, DK. I, personally, would put Ranma at 11, Ryouga, Shampoo, and Kuno at 10, and Akane and Mousse at 9, but that's me.

Except Vegeta totally destroyed a planet with a single beam before he arrived on Earth. That always bugged me about Frieza being unable to destroy Namek. But it does serve as further proof that PLs fluctuate in any given series, even one that, unlike many American comics, is written by one person.
