I think "Mary-Sue" can be used too lightly when it comes to OCs.  The short definition is, "A character who is perfect."  That sums it up, but a BETTER definition is, "A character who is so perfect that she have no trouble overcoming obstacles."

 

Let's take a look at what usually labels a character as a Mary Sue:

 

  1) Jaw-droppingly gorgeous (even though the character in question constantly states otherwise)

  2) Gains the affections of others instantly with mininal/no effort

  3) Extremely talented, although sometimes a flunk at at least one thing to make her more "relatable."  Usually something that will have no effect on the story (Math, Physics, Drawing).

  4) Able to master a skill in a short time period (Magic, swordfighting, etc)

  5) Dramatic and/or tragic backstory (I.e.: orphaned; half-breed; peasant with noble heritage)

  6) Sun-child of Supreme Destiny (for no good reason)

  7) Her/his love interest(s) exsist for the sole purpose of being he/his love interest

  8) Idealized self-insert of the author

  9) Everything revolves around her

 

OP can be synonymous to Mary-Sue, but it really depends on what your interpretation is.  For me, "OP" and "Mary-Sue" is the same thing: so powerful they have no difficulty overcoming problems.

 

Eragon from the Inheritance Cycle ai an example of a Mary-Sue.  Let's see how many labels he falls under:

 

 1) Not at first, but he becomes a real looker later on.  Check!

  2) Mostly yes.  Check!

  3) He mastered magic AND swordfighting in two months.  Before that, he was a skilled archer.  Check!

  4) See (3).   Check!

  5) Orphaned and grew up as a poor farmboy, oblivious of his noble heritage.  Check!

  6) The only person in the world who can stop Galbatorix?  Check!

  7) I'd say Arya is more well-rounded than that.  Nope.

  8) Check!

  9) Check!

 

Final score: 8/9

Verdict: Mary-Sue

 

Let's say for a moment that Darkstalker is someone's OC.  Incredibly powerful NightWing powers AND he's an animus?  I think we'd all label him as OP.  But is he?

  Let's find out!

 

  1) I wouldn't say so.  Nope!

  2) This one is a bit tricky.  Post-exile, he could only communicate with Moon via telepathy, so he comes off as eerie and untrustworthy.  Pre-exile, we don't know much about his people skills.  But since the other NightWings decided that he was too dangerous and ambitious, I'll say nay.

  3) His mind reading and future-sight powers are excceptionally strong.  I'd say he's talented.  Check!

  4) Again, we don't know much about how fast he picks things up.  N/A

  5) I'd say he has a dramatic backstory.  But since it seems likely that Darkstalker's past will become important, I won't mark this as a Mary-Sue trait.  Nope!

  6) Nope!

  7) I don't know much about Clearsight, except that she's STILL more interesting than Edward Cullen.  Nope!

  8) For some strange reason, I can't see him and Tui as the same person.  Nope!

  9) He's an important character, but Pyrrhia doesn't revolve around him.  Nope!

 

Final score: 1/9

Verdict: Not a Mary-Sue

 

Although Darkstalker is very powerful, he isn't OP because he still fails at some things.

 

What makes perfect characters annoying is that we know they'll never fail at anything.  We aren't concerned wether or not they'll succeed, so they become boring and bland.

  But with characters like the Dragonets of Destiny and the Jade Winglet, who are well-rounded with struggles and flaws, we're worried about them.  We care about them because they struggle.

  The struggle of the character is what makes them interesting and what makes us care about them.  We want to share their pain and sorrow.  Without sacrifice and defeat, victory is bland and repetitive--there's nothing special about winning if you don't work for it.  It's not something that can just be handed to you on a silver platter--you've got to earn it.

 

I hope that this has shed some light on the Mary-Sue situation.  :)

Our opinions are not equal when your opinion does not respect my existence.

Let's see...  is my animus IceWing OC a Mary-Sue..?

 

  1) Dazzling white with silver wings.... I don't think she's all that gorgeous.

  2) HAHAHAHA No. She's antisocial. NOPE.

  3) WELL she is a healer and a master of her animus powers..... Yeah....

  4) Ugh yes. She's boss with her animus powers. Yeah...

  5) Not exactly tragic-- Her sister becomes queen and then she goes on a pilgramage around Pyrrhia.

  6) idk what this means... but she's not in a prophecy or anything.

  7) Diamond doesn't have a love life.

  8) Well, yes, in a way. I suppose.

  9) No, although she is a major character for the plot of my fanfics.

 

   3/9

Would that be a Mary-Sue?

Eragon is NOT a Mary-Sue. A Mary-Sue isn't just a powerful character, even. Mary-Sues are perfect characters, able to do anything perfectly, annoying, and perfectly pretty.  Mary-Sues are not just perfect-problem-solvers, however that would make them eventually be a Mary-Sue.

 

Eragon can be described as slightly Sueish, being someone who found a hidden egg that hatched a dragon. Honestly, however, when you write a book, your character must be intesting, or have something happen. It should be only one thing that sets off a chain reaction through the book. -SPOIER FOR THE INHERITENCE CYCLE)

 

Eragon finds a 'stone' 

The stone hatches Saphira

Eragon's town gets raided by the Ra'zac. (I finished Brisignr a while back and haven't gotten my hands on Inheritence yet, so excuse my spelling please.)

Eragon and Brom have to leave to not die.

Brom furiously trains Eragon, making him work probably over his limits.

Brom dies and Eragon continues on.

Uh... more stuff that happened in late Eragon and all off Eldest...

Elf person continues to train Eragon.

SO ON i forget.

 

As you can see, and through the book, a simple event (finding the egg) made Eragon go through all this trouble. This was very hard on him and he gave up at some points. So, well, Darkstalker (I haven't read Moon Rising yet so I've only read that tale) is much more of a Mary-Sue than Eragon. Well, probably Darkstalker is an Evil!Sue, since he has all those NightWing powers that NO OTHER DRAGON HAS excecpt ONE POWER for a SELECT FEW. VERY. FEW. He's described as monsterous and terrifing, the most horribible thing you can ever meet. Yes, he's not a Sue, but he is very close to being an Evil!Sue...

  Nightblaze

Let's see if my two NightWing OCs with powers, Dusksky and Thoughtseeker, are sues/stus.

 

 

 

First is Dusksky.

 

1) No, not really.

2) She really has no social life outside of her family.

3) Naw, the only thing she's "talented" at is seeing the future (kinda), flying, and being herself.

4) Nope. It took her at least a year to get used to the power she was born with.

5) No. She lived with an amazing family. Two healthy parents, an older brother, an older sister, her own pet scavenger, and she got a baby brother later on.

6) Um no.

7) Dusksky has no love interest.

8) Dusksky is nothing like me.

9) NO.

 

Result: 0/9

 

Not a sue.

 

Now, Thoughtseeker.

 

1) He's cute, but not super cute. No...IDK. Half.

2) He tries to get out more, but whenever he does, he gets major migraines because of his mind-reading power.

3) He has some major flaws (Ex., he has trouble walking at times, bright lights hurt him, his scales get dry easily and they crack).

4) He was able to fly very quickly, so, yeah.

5) Same as Dusksky, but he's the baby.

6) Nope.

7) Bro, he's not even two years old yet, why would he have a love interest?

8) No.

9) NERP.

 

Result: 1 and a half/ 9

 

Not a stu.

Ok, for all the people upset about my comparison of Eragon to a Mary-Sue: I'm sorry if I offended you.  It's actually been an long time since I've read the books, and I'm going off of what I remember.

 

Also, this isn't a Mary-Sue test.  I was just saying tha Mary-Sues are always very pretty, charming, talented, etc, etc.  But I do plan on making one very soon!

@Silverpanther 249, I should be more specific about the everything revolves around her thing.  Of course she has to be important if she's a main character.  But if every little sub-plot ends up centers around her, then it's bad.

  Being incredibly beautiful is also not bad itself, but rather other character's reactions to her beauty. 

 

I think the main problem of Mary-Sues is that they pick up skills too quickly, or have an unrealistic amount of them from the get-go.  

  So, how do other characters react to Twilightstalker's beauty?  What can she do at the start of the story?  What talents does she pick up, and how fast?  Who teaches her?

 

I have to go to bed now, but I'll get back to you ASAP.  :)

Let's try this out with Silentscream, an infamous nightwing assassin!

1) No. Not at all.

2) He doesn't have the affections of anyone, so no.

3) He is extremely talented at something, (killing) but it has an effect on the story.

4) No. He was trained to kill.

5) Yes, his parents died so he went insane with anger and vengeance.

6) No prophecy, no ultimate destiny, nothing!

7) No love interest to speak of.

8) Last time I checked, i'm not an insane murderous nightwing.

9) No.

 

1/9 points.

It doesn't matter because as long as your dragon is made properly its fine. I mean my dragons aren't always part of a prochey, I like being a guardian or a side character. My dragons aren't always acctrative, they never have a relationship, and they don't get all things quickly. My dragons would never be Mary Sues because I made them to be like actual people!

SHIFTER:

 

1) Not really

2) Definitely not

3) Powerful Animus... Yeah. 

4) Shifter spent his entire life using his animus powers, and that made him really cold.  Sunbeam, his first crush, taught him to love and have a soul, but then she was killed by Blister, who told him it was Blaze who killed her.  So he joined Blister and used his animus powers so much he turned really cold and evil.  But now he has a Skyfire bracelet that his animus powers are in, so he can't lose any more soul... and his mind can't be read.  Yeah.

5) Yes!

6) NO.

7) Sunrise:  Yes.  Not really.  I made her for Shifter, yes, but I only intended for her to teach him about love and kindness, and then to die.  Skywatcher:  Definitely not!

8) Not really...

9) I don't think so.

 

3 out of 9.  Pretty common.

Is my OC Typhoon a "Mary-Sue?"

1: Not really.

2: NO! BLIZZARD AND GARNET WERE HATED HIS GUTS!

3: He is very weak and isn't super smart just super insane.

4: Not really but I don't know much about him yet.

5: His back story isn't super tragic. Its just shows what an insane character he is. So maybe 1/2?

6: NO. 

7: OMG NO! He wants to kill his only friend. . .

Let's see my OCs

 

Shapeshifter:

  1) Shapeshifter is swollen and weird looking, nope.

  2) He has a green, glowing underbelly with green goo leaking out of it, that’s attention-worthy! Nope.

  3) He sucks at his titular talent (shapeshifting), so no.

  4) No, same with 3)

  5) Yes. Accidentally got separated with his family, got killed and brought back to life by conscious alien goo…yeah

  6) He turns out to be one of the rare possessors of the said “alien goo” and is united with his alternate selves to defeat the evil version of all of them. I would say yes.

  7) Kind of. His love interest Fern was created from one of my dreams, so she wasn’t originally meant to be there.

  8) Yes

  9) The story is about his life, you’d expect that to happen. It doesn’t count

Verdict: 5/9

Rating: right on the edge between OC and Mary Sue

 

Fern:

1) When Fern’s name was still Sahara, she was a Sandwing tomboy with what looks like fungal infections, she pretty much turned into a giant spore-farting bush after her transformation, but she is quite gorgeous when her flowers bloom, so not really.

2) She has the Midas touch, but turns everything to sand instead of gold, and            later she became a giant mobile plant, so no

3) She killed the Rainwings’ sacred flower and later kept accidentally releasing spores all over the place, no.

4) She never really mastered anything, no.

5) Animus dragon with a fatally dangerous power and later a miracle of nature? Yes

6) No

7) No

8) She was inspired by one of my dreams, so yes

9) For a while, yes, later, no.

Verdict: 1/9

Rating: Normal OC with a weirdly creative design

 

Hurricane and Thunder

1)    Hurricane and Thunder are conjoined twins, there’s nothing wrong with that, but dragons don’t think they’re beautiful either.

2)    Their whole character is that they have no friends beside each other.

  3)   They don’t have any special skills.

  4)    See 3)

  5)    Cursed children of a Dragonet of Destiny and a over-fired SkyWing? Yes

  6)    No

  7)    They don’t have love interests

  8)   NO

  9)   NO

Verdict: 1/9

Rating: Same with Fern

I MEAN NO SINCERE NEGATIVITY OF ANY DEGREE AND KIND TO ANY ENTITY IN EXISTENCE WITH MY POSTS.

Ooh, Ooh, I'm going to do my new three favorite OC!

 

Alaska The IceWing

 

1) No... I wouldn't say so she's just kind of pretty but nobody's ever gone to that length.

2) Nope. Never. Nada. She's a hater, and if people every gave her affection she'd go to a length to disprove them.

3) No. She has way to many flaws to even take the question into length.

4) Although she is a quick learner and thinker, it took her a bit to master her animus powers, (yes she's an animus). I say half a point.

5) Half a point, she didn't like the IceWing's rules, though be one, she threw herself out. So maybe there is a little dramma, but nobody really cared because she never told anybody she was an animus. Well except her sister, who's to lazy to remember.

6) Definetly... NOT!

7) I haven't given her a love interest, so no.

8) Err... I gave her one or two of my traits... Half a point.

9) Nope, none of my OC have, ever, been like that.

 


Few, 2.5/9!

 

Shroom The MudWing

 

1) No he's lame, he's been insulted though!

2) No again, practically the same thing for the first question.

3) No he's only got useless talents.

4) Does face-planting count as a skill? I think I'm going to say... No...

5) No, he's just a normal bigwings, he happened to be a blood egg, and born into the royal lineage. But being a MudWing it didn't really matter, he was considered a big disapointment, also there hasn't been a King yet, *SIGH*... So... Half a point.

6) No, how could he even?

7) I have to admit he has a love intrest, but she's got some pretty good reasons! Half a point.

8) No... Gladly...

9) No. Just no.

 

Okay... I can reason with this score, 1.5/9...

 

Skink The SandWing

 

 

1) No. He was born ugly to most, with normal SandWing's features. But all torn up. Also his mother was all about beauty...

2) No.

3) No.

4) No. Unless you count being good at failure... I like OC with many flaws, give realicity, who need animus NightWings born on the three moons?

5) No. Only slightly... Quater point there.

6) No.

7) No... Yes... NO... HALF A POINT! His love interest exsist, but with not a very solid background. Except she's a SandWing, SkyWing, hybrid with features like him. Which made Skink fall in love, with a, like mom will care, attidude. 

8) No, I wish, I really love him!

9) No. He's just a prince of like... Ten others, who are idealized much more then him.

 


Ummm/9

 

THANK YOU!!

The Wizarding World, WoF, Warriors, RICK RIORDANNN!

I think nicknaming is odd... Waffles?

Hoi, I'm a meme & trash child...

 

 

I'm going to try this on a SA main character...Abeke and Conor seem somewhat Mary-suish,Meilin and Rolllan are better though

 

Abeke-

 

 1) No

  2) Kinda,she has two love interests but meilin doesn't truts her for most of the series

  3) She's a great archer,has a great bond with Uraza so i would yep

  4) Her bond with Uraza was extremely quick compared to Rollan or Meilin,so I would say yes

  5) Her sister was loved more by her father,she lost her mom at an early age which just seems to affect her in the first book,yep!

  6) Summoned a great-beast,yep!

  7) Nope,Shane is the most complex character in that series and Conor is a bit of a gary-sue but is still a main character

  8) No

  9) Not quite,she's just the savior of Erdas destined to help save the world,so maybe?

 

Final score: 5/9

Verdict: Kinda sue-ish

 

Now compare this to one of my oc's...

 

1) She's pretty but not "OMG That Girl is The Prettiest Thing In Existince!" It's more like,"Oh that girl looks pretty but I've seen better." She really could care less about her psychical apperance

  2) Nope,she's Stetriolian a group of people that just attacked them so she has trouble making friends and is generally anti-social

  3) She's not,I haven't quite developed her enough to make a firm list of everything she's good or bad at but she's not perfect,she's not the most book-smart person and several other things she isn't good at,socializing for one thing.

  4) Nope

  5) Sad backstory but she's left depressed and moody by this so it's not just a sad backstory for the sake of a sad backstory and the character is just going to be a happy and bubbly child!

  6) Nope,just a regular person 

  7) Nope,Phillip has his own story and isn't just for her

  8) No,partly based off people I know but not me

  9) Nope

 

Final score: 1/9

Verdict:Non-Sue

...I'm with you to the end

Let's do this with the OC I'm worried is a Sue.

 

1) Jaw-droppingly gorgeous (even though the character in question constantly states otherwise) No, definitely not. Just sharp-looking. And rude about it.

  2) Gains the affections of others instantly with mininal/no effort Nope. People hate her, and it's mutual.

  3) Extremely talented, although sometimes a flunk at at least one thing to make her more "relatable."  Usually something that will have no effect on the story (Math, Physics, Drawing). Talented at killing, yes. So I guess I'll say yes to this.

  4) Able to master a skill in a short time period (Magic, swordfighting, etc) Yes, but mostly because she has nothing better to do.

  5) Dramatic and/or tragic backstory (I.e.: orphaned; half-breed; peasant with noble heritage) ...errrr. Yes.

  6) Sun-child of Supreme Destiny (for no good reason) Nope.

  7) Her/his love interest(s) exsist for the sole purpose of being he/his love interest Nope.

  8) Idealized self-insert of the author Nope.

  9) Everything revolves around her Nope.

 

3/9

So I guess not a Sue?

What am I?

 

You can fix something, but that doesn't make it not broken

you can listen but that doesn't mean you understand.

 

BTS is my current obsession- Taekook is good.

Let's try Blue, shall we?

 

1) Jaw-droppingly gorgeous (even though the character in question constantly states otherwise): I mean, I guess but not jaw-droppingly.
2) Gains the affections of others instantly with mininal/no effort: :/ kinda
3) Extremely talented, although sometimes a flunk at at least one thing to make her more "relatable." Usually something that will have no effect on the story (Math, Physics, Drawing): ...yeah
4) Able to master a skill in a short time period (Magic, swordfighting, etc): yeah...
5) Dramatic and/or tragic backstory (I.e.: orphaned; half-breed; peasant with noble heritage): yes, orphaned because her father killed her mother and then he died because Blue killed him..
6) Sun-child of Supreme Destiny (for no good reason):nope
7) Her/his love interest(s) exsist for the sole purpose of being he/his love interest: (confusing wording...) no?
8) Idealized self-insert of the author: yeah, ok.
9) Everything revolves around her: Nope

 

4/9 not a Mary-sue

1) ...not jaw-droppingly, but still yeah... His powers do have to do with emotional manipulation so there's that

2) Haha, he's very annoying. Even with said powers

3) Not really. A complete flunk at fighting, which isn't good...

4) Nope

5) Yeah... basically an experiment from a corrupt government, which really isn't normal

6) Not really. Chased by said corrupt government and destiny doesn't care about your feelings in this story

7) Main love interest has a major impact on the story. Other love interests may be random people on the street though so half and half?

8) Ew no

9) Not really
