Ranma is killed viscously by some weird sorcerer along with Mousse, and Shampoo is horribly scarred. 5 years later Ranma is reborn as the new Hellspawn![3]

Ranma dies and is resurrected by Malebolgia.[4]

Five years ago, a mistake was made, and the death of Ranma Saotome was the price. But now, a new price needs to be paid, both for the ones who killed Ranma, and a price for Ranma himself to pay...'[5]

Ranma is back. Standing on the rooftop of Furinkan high with no idea how he got there. Wearing a suit with strange chains hanging off it as well. Apparently he died 5 years ago, but now he's back, as a Hellspawn. What has happened in his absence, what happened to him, and who did it.[6]
