Shampoo

Japanese name: 珊璞
Shampoo is the village champion of the Chinese Amazons, who is defeated by Ranma in his male and female forms. The laws of her village force her to attempt to kill Ranma's female form and marry his male form. She eventually learns that he is cursed, and focuses on marrying him. She trains under her great-grandmother, Cologne, and eventually obtains a curse that turns her into a cat, which doesn't help with Ranma, who has a phobia of them. She helps run the Cat Café with Cologne, and often delivers food. She is actively pursued by Mousse, but she generally shows nothing but disdain for him.

Shampoo speaks with a simplified mode of speech, most notably rapidly switching between ignoring and using personal pronouns, because of having a limited amount of time to learn the Japanese language. She is described as "innocent and aggressive", being very affectionate and cheerful, while also being very devious and forceful. She is gladly willing to assassinate any "obstacle" in the path of a goal or for the sake of convenience, to brainwash Ranma into loving her, to relentlessly and severely bully others for years, or to put others, including her "groom", through sadistic manipulation games for her own amusement. She has very little modesty, and attempts to use nudity to seduce Ranma in public places.

Shampoo is highly skilled in unarmed combat, possesses considerable speed and agility, and is strong enough to casually walk through reinforced stone walls on a regular basis. She can also efficiently use certain supernatural acupressure techniques for instant unconsciousness, temporary mind-control, or selective memory-removal. Her weakness is her lack of durability, as she is recurrently defeated by single forceful attacks. She uses a pair of "chúi" as her primary weapons.

Shampoo is voiced by Rei Sakuma in the Japanese anime and by Cathy Weseluck in the English dub.[8] She is sometimes compared to Lum Invader from Takahashi's earlier Urusei Yatsura due to the similarities in their character designs and openly clingy personalities.

Shampoo's bald, bespectacled, and moustasche-wearing, "sterotypically Chinese" father has only appeared occasionally as a background character in the manga or anime, when watching her supposed training/punishment against Cologne at Jusenkyo, or working as a cook in the restaurant. However, he did appear as the final opponent of an early 90s video game, wherein he challenged Ranma due to the perceived bad treatment of his daughter.
