MySQL ASCII codes

In Python, the ord() function returns a ascii code between 0 and 255

>>> ord("a")
97
>>> ord("b")
98
>>> ord("c")
99
>>> ord("á")
225
>>> ord("í")
237
>>> ord("Ñ")
209

But in MySQL, I'm unable to get those higher codes, even using charset modifiers:

mysql> SELECT ord("a"),ord("b"),ord("c");
+----------+----------+----------+
| ord("a") | ord("b") | ord("c") |
+----------+----------+----------+
| 97 | 98 | 99 |
+----------+----------+----------+

mysql> SELECT ord("á"),ord(_utf8"á"),ord(_utf8mb4"á"),ord(_latin1"á");
+-----------+----------------+-------------------+------------------+
| ord("á") | ord(_utf8"á") | ord(_utf8mb4"á") | ord(_latin1"á") |
+-----------+----------------+-------------------+------------------+
| 50081 | 50081 | 50081 | 195 |
+-----------+----------------+-------------------+------------------+

mysql> SELECT ascii("á"),ascii(_utf8"á"),ascii(_utf8mb4"á"),ascii(_latin1"á");
+-------------+------------------+---------------------+--------------------+
| ascii("á") | ascii(_utf8"á") | ascii(_utf8mb4"á") | ascii(_latin1"á") |
+-------------+------------------+---------------------+--------------------+
| 195 | 195 | 195 | 195 |
+-------------+------------------+---------------------+--------------------+

How can I get those 225, 237 or 209 codes in MySQL? Which function? which character set?
