For the video game, see Ranma ½: Hard Battle.

Cover of the DVD box set by Viz.

This article lists episodes 23-45 and 51 of Ranma ½ Nettōhen (らんま½ 熱闘編), released by Viz as the third season of Ranma ½ or "Hard Battle". Episode 51 of Nettohen was placed in between episodes 44 and 45.

The closing song, "Present" by Tokyo Shōnen, was used in the 39th to 54th Nettōhen episodes; it was never heard in Viz's Hard Battle VHS or DVD sets. The closing song used in Outta Control, "Friends" by YAWMIN, was mislabeled as "Present" during the first eight episodes of that season.
