Ranko can refer to one of the following:

  • Ranko Habiki - author of More than One.
  • RankoSaotome - author of Ranma-Oh! King of Games.
  • Ranko Saotome - author of A New Life
  • Ranko Saotome - the character from Genma's Daughter.
  • Ranko Tendo - Ranma's alias while in girl form throughout the later chapters of the manga. Used to hide from his mother after he learns about the Seppuku pledge. As Ranko, Ranma claims to be a cousin of the Tendo's visiting with her pet panda. This farce continues from Chapter 225 (Vol 22) to Chapter 383 (Vol 36). Some fanfic authors use Ranko generically to refer to Ranma's girl side whether he's hiding from his mother or not, often to accentuate the difference between his boy and girl forms.
