Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition |OT2| Street Fighter Has Come Home

Actually, all these characters (Makoto, Ranma's Akane, HerWorldoes and Fighter's History's Ryokos, the manga Yawara!, countless others) are all derivative from a real world person.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryoko_Tani
Then the trope evolved from one character to the other.
... According to that wiki page Ryoko Tani was 11 or 12 when Ranma started and have yet to win anything! How is Akane derived from her?!
 
The trope might have evolved but Makoto is almost all Akane, all the way to her personality traits, things she hate, back story and even the yellow-ish gi instead of the standard white one. Even her super arts has a lot of Akane in them.

:D
