Mary Sues
Posted 9/3/10
who are considered Mary Sues in anime? and do mary sues annoy you?

in my opinion, I think Tohru from Fruits Basket is a huge Mary Sue and sakura from Naruto is also a sue

Hm, most of the sailor scouts and the main pink haired girl from Shugo Chara.

I don't see how Sakura could be a Mary Sue, since if she was, she would be rivaling if not often displacing Naruto as the main character, and would rarely lose in any conflict.

To be a real Mary Sue, a character has to be in the spotlight, and in some way be "too good to be true". Either too nice, too gifted, too powerful, etc.. I expect the substantial number of Sakura haters out there would gladly give you a long list of her flaws.

Oh for the loved of................. %99.9 percent of media is nothing more then wish fulfillment!! almost every single character in any form of fiction is basically a gary stu or a mary sue. James bond, Wolverine, Pipi longstocking, spike speigal, almost every single damn sports movie, they all exist for nothing but wish fullfilment, nothing more and nothing less. asking "which anime character do you think is a mary sue" is like saying "okay, which cow would be a steak?"

A mary sue is the perfect girl.

She's the one everyone loves, who all the boys want, always is beautiful and kind, and who never makes mistakes.

Commenly known as Bella Swan Syndrome :3

agreed lol I do like her music though lol but yeah, 8P alot of Fruba fans are gonna hate me for this but Tohro kinda annoys me for that reason >_< I hate that she's too perfect and her emotions are to unrealistic, she never ever gets mad at anything, all she does is sit there and cry of there's a problem, she never stands up for herself, almost every guy in the Sohma family has a crush on her, and everytime she gives one of her mother's speeches they character with a problem automatically feels better and changes afterward, so yeah, she is almost way to perfect, I have met alot of nice, kind and caring people but those people get mad once in a while >.> *dont attack me fruba fans, im just speaking my mind*

I see what you mean, but you're using 'mary sue' too freely. Mary sues are always in the spotlight, too good to be true, everyone loves and talks about how 'awesome' they are, ect. The difference between Spike Spiegal and Haruhi Suzumiya is Cowboy Bebop is about Spike's adventures, not "Spike is a very interesting man. He is a bounty hunter and I always thought he was cool. He provides a lot of fan service, he is really awesome and he's a God who's better than anyone else and I think I love him..."
