Tatewaki Kuno is the captain of Furinkan's kendo club. Of wealthy samurai lineage and the school's best fighter, he naturally felt that he deserved the school's fairest maiden, Akane Tendo.

Kuno's life was turned upside down by the arrival of Ranma Saotome. Not only did Saotome beat him in combat (though Kuno won't admit this), but he was also engaged to Akane. The two boys fought, but during the battle they fell into the school swimming pool and a strange Pig-Tailed Girl mysteriously took Ranma's place. Kuno fell in love with the powerful mystery girl, but would not give up on Akane either. He often agonizes over which one he would choose, but always comes to the conclusion that he loves them both.

Personality: Tatewaki thinks of himself as a noble samurai, who fights for what is right. Unfortunately, his view of reality is somewhat skewed. He is seemingly incapable of understanding that Ranma's two forms are one and the same; he thinks that Ranma has some evil hold over the Pig-Tailed Girl that has bewitched her mind. Thus he is hostile to Ranma when he is a boy,

Appearance: He almost always dresses in a sword-man's traditional gear including super-loose trousers, and usually has a wooden sword (bokken) ready, if not two or three. He tends to speak formally, often with long rants or flowery poetics.
