Kodachi Kuno
...
Kodachi Kuno (?? ???,Kuno Kodachi?) is one of Ranma Saotome's suitors.
...
"Kodachi" refers to a type of sword, smaller than a katana but larger than a wakizashi. "Kuno" means "nine abilities". Her name was changed to "Geraldine" in the French dub.
...
Known as "The Black Rose" (???????,Kurobara no kodachi?) in the gymnastics community, Kodachi is presented as Tatewaki Kuno's sister and a student at St. Hebereke's School for Girls (St. Bacchus School for Girls in the manga). This is in contrast to her brother and several members of the regular cast, who attend the co-ed Furinkan High School. As a master of Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics and captain of the school's team, she often preemptively attacks her opponents with various weapons, including swords or a giant mallet to cripple them, thus winning by default. She calls it "fighting in all fairness before the match. Kodachi had seldom, if ever, lost a match before battling Ranma as a result of this practice.
...
Kodachi becomes enamoured with male Ranma after the latter acts as her 'knight in shining armour' by saving her from falling off the roof of the Tendo Dojo.
...
Unlike his other suitors, Kodachi is not actually betrothed to Ranma.
...
Of interesting note is that Kodachi has been bitter rivals with another girl, Asuka Saginomiya, AKA the White Lily, since they both were six years old, and violently assaulted each other's claimed "boyfriends" until only one of them was conscious.
...
Since Kodachi 'won' the competition they agreed to compete again ten years later.
...
The other two brought exploding food, while Kodachi arrived in a wedding dress.
...
Kodachi and Tatewaki share a dysfunctional, but caring relationship between each other. When it's revealed that the two are related after the former challenges Akane to a fight for Ranma, Tatewaki admits that she is completely insane, but tells Ranma to take care of her, and would even allow Ranma to date her. Kodachi refers to Tatewaki as "big brother" and would have him come to her school for Parents Day.
...
Upon their meeting, Kodachi instantly tried to seduce Ranma, much to his chagrin, and ultimately failed when met by a kick courtesy of Akane Tendo.
...
Because of their rivalry over Ranma and the Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics challenge, Kodachi seems to hate Akane and has tried to kill her multiple times.
...
Akane, also hates Kodachi and like others, believes her to be crazy.
...
Kodachi is an expert in Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics, making her skilled in acrobatics and weapon use in the form of ribbons, balls, clubs, hoops, and ropes, although her ribbon is her most commonly used weapon. She is incredibly agile and will typically make an aerial entrance or exit. A very cunning individual, she is not averse to using unorthodox methods in combat such as rigged weapons, explosives and various poisons. In competition, certain techniques of hers were construed as cheating, like using hidden spikes in her club. But she used them so skillfully that the judge couldn't notice them when pointed out. Her teammates also had to leave after being discovered to be helping her move the arena. On the other hand, disguising a steel rod as a rope, or throwing her brother at Ranma, were within the main framework, which simply prohibits barehanded attacks. Kodachi has been shown to wear her characteristic leotard under virtually all her clothing, presumably because it permits a superior range of motion while in combat.
Compared to the rest of the regular Ranma cast, Kodachi has apparently been treated as roughly equivalent to Ukyo or Shampoo during free-for-alls gang-ups aqainst Ranma, Hinako or Genma, outside of "Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics" tournaments (within these constraints she came close to defeating Ranma, as he/she was early in the series, before Cologne's power-up, and limited to non-barehanded attacks), and seems to have superior recovery time, as the latter two took considerably longer when drained by Hinako. However, any actual semi-confrontations during these situations have been limited to a few panels, alternately been completely off-screen, so it's very hard to draw a conclusion on these merits alone. More importantly she has also been able to fight / parry with Tatewaki on even or slightly superior footing, but it's unclear whether he held back or not (as he seems inclined to do against females).
Black Rose Blizzard: Kodachi's most commonly seen technique, typically used for her exits. Using her ribbon, she generates a storm of black rose petals, which can also be used to screen an escape. Paralysis powder: One of Kodachi's trademarks, capable of incapacitating anyone. She has slipped the powder into tea or distributed it via bouquets of black roses. Rose bombs: Bombs in the form of black roses which are thrown like darts.
...
Both have long black hair (although, Kodachi wears hers in a side pony tail), and possess similar facial designs.

Kodachi Kuno

In Part 1, Principal Kuno sponsors a contest in which the prize is a trip for two to China.
...
Principal Kuno announces that he is holding a contest in which the prize is a trip for two to China. Tatewaki Kuno is looking forward to taking the pigtailed girl and gets the tickets, but then Kodachi appears to grab them and tries to take Ranma with her.
...
Ranma grabs Tsubasa, who has disguised himself as a giant firecracker to run forward with the answer, but they are both hit by a coconut missile fired by Principal Kuno, so no one gets the question again.

Kodachi Kuno
...
Principal Kuno offers to help each of the characters if they first defeat eight other opponents. However in all cases, he fails to live up to his promises.
...
In the end Ryoga regains his memory: Principal Kuno hit him in the back of the head when he entered his office.
...
Principal Kuno advises him to start by making an example of his friends.
...
Principal Kuno responds that he is about to be attacked by a duck. Mousse uses a variety of weapons for his normal and special attacks, including swords, a ball and chain (which not only has good reach but can sometimes get as many as four hits in), a yo-yo, a swan-shaped potty (Fist of the White Swan), and a cat. His special attacks include egg bombs, a flurry of blows with different weapons, and diving at his opponent with clawed shoes (Hawk's Talon). His stage is a fighting arena. Gambling King (simply called "King" in game): King dreams of owning his own casino, but lacks the funds. Principal Kuno offers to give him some financial aid, but he must defeat eight opponents first. After defeating the eight opponents, the principal informs King that he has one more fight...he bet the money he had saved up for the casino on the last opponent. After defeating Taro, The Principal allows King to open a casino next to his office. It turns out that King is a better fighter than a gambler because he can't beat high school students at his games. He is perhaps the most challenging character to beat the game with. Although slow he is not exceptionally strong and most of his attacks are close range or of limited usefulness. He makes a variety of attacks with playing cards, dice, and a bow. King'ss stage is a casino. This is the only appearance that he makes in any of the Ranma ½ fighting games.
...
His stage is a giant statue of Principal Kuno.

The teacher hired by Principal Kuno, she has the reputation for reforming troublesome students, the reputation which is the causal agent of surprise whenever she shows higher & turns intent on exist as everthing of 12 years old. However her reputation is justified, since she has the ability to soak up a human's battle aura, giving the two incapable of scrap. Fallowing ingesting a aura, she instantly grows into a voluptuous woman, & is so capapable of firing the aura as a big ball of energy using which to strike at her opponents she is restored to her tike form fallowing using the energy this way.
A understanding for her unknown abilities & situation is that, as a little infant, she was super sickly. Happosai was predatory nurses' pantie at her hospital, & "helped" her by manipulating her pressure points, thus changing her metabolism and then she may sop up a auras of more humans to increase her health. Even then, his exclusively motive for doing this was so she can sop up a battle auras of a infuriated nurses whose step-in he stole, so preventing the nurses from either chasing him. This changed metabolism makes her default form age super slowly, and so her avowedly age is that of her big form.
