taken from Tiger Mask: The Animated Series

Tiger Mask is a manga series from 1968 that was created by Ikki Kajiwara and Naoki Tsuji, that follows the adventures of a masked professional wrestler as he earns money to help fund the orphanage that raised him.

The Tiger Mask manga and anime series have gone on to inspire actual pro-wrestlers to take up the Tiger Mask name and costume in the ring.

Relevance to Ranma

As Ryoga prepares to fight Ranma, Nabiki convinces him to take steroids (actually just vitamins) telling him, "you're a tiger! A tiger!". This is taken from the opening narration of Tiger Mask, where the narrator shouts out this same line.
