This stamp's neighbor-

Yes, I do dislike certain characters for certain traits, but some people treat "Mary Sues" like you HAVE to hate them.

THANK YOU!!
Yes I agree so freaking much

But...I know they're fictional and it's totally no biggie, people need to work with their characters background and not be flirty.
But overall, who cares?

My favorite Frankenweenie character is a Mary Sue, but I don't care. I love Toshiaki! :D

WARNING, CONTAINS SPOILERS!

- He has an exotic name? Checked.

- He gets equal threatment with other people not caring about the timeline? (He's Japanese, he studies in the same class with white kids and lives in 60s.) Checked.

- He's popular? Checked.

- He has perfect hair? Checked.

- He's multitalented? (He's very intelligent, he plays baseball, and he writes with both right and left hand.) Checked.

- He makes something normal kid wouldn't do? (He steals Victor's "project" and brings his turtle back to life to win science fair.) Checked.

- His parents aren't never seen? Checked.

Toshiaki = Mary Sue

(Luckily he has wicked personality that he's not boring.)

A Mary sue is a character that has no flaws, a flat personality, and basically has traits that goes against canonical rules. Mary sues can be a female or a male and would usually upstage the main cast with their cliched talents, unrealistically tragic backstory, and overpowered abilities.
Mary sues also has the cast falling head over heels for them and characters the author likes are generalky portrayed as heroes while characters the author hates (even if the character is alighned with good) as bad guys.
Characters that are known to be Mary Sues include Bella Swan, Chris Chan, and a multitude of OCs and sefl inserts.

Most of the time the character in question isn't even a Mary Sue.  They just hate the character, and are using the phrase 'Mary Sue' as an excuse.  The term 'Mary Sue' has lost its meaning.

Bonus points if they only say that because of
a) An extremely over the top tragic backstory despite having flaws
b) Being overpowered despite having flaws
c) They rely on Deus ex machina
d) All of the above
or e) They just don't like the character and just want to find excuses

I make some OCs, but they are by no means flawless, they have their flaws, they're not showing them....I have made some Sues in the past, so I'm working on not making them anymore.
My female ones are highly insecure about themselves...I also have male OCs that are afraid of loving others of their gender, since they're scared that they'll be bullied for being gay....
Currently all my sims in my new game have an insecurity flaw, heck they even make self-depricating jokes about themselves when they're embarrassed!

They basically just used him as a romance device, seeing as if there must be a love interest in a movie about a high school.

Sooo, if you're in a roleplay and all of a sudden you have someone enter who has a charrie who is totally perfect with no flaws at all, that doesn't matter? Is there anyone in the world who has no flaws at all? It's quite annoying to receive a mary-sue or gary-stu in a roleplay.

Mary Sue- A character claiming to be related to a popular character (I.e: Saying you're related to a king, queen, etc. Also being in relationship with a popular character. Take example of a Sonic the Hedgehog OC and pairing it up with Sonic or Shadow.) or having no flaws, being 'perfect'.

Actually, Mary Sues are usually classed as over detailed characters who aren't realistic at all.

Over-detailed? A character can be over-detailed, that doesn't make him (her) any less realistic per se.
Now, it depends what the details entail, exactly. I think.

It's a term commonly used if a character has no flaws or is really popular for no reason, idk. People just love to slap the term everyfuckingwhere whenever they nitpick at what they don't like about a character.

I see where you are coming from and totally respect your opinion. However, as a writer I know that Mary Sues can be good and bad in some situations. Example would be a magical person to have strong abilities in a non-magical realm. Another would be an immortal being that can destroy you in three second flat. 

Those are really the traits of a character that bother me the most.

MLP is so good because the mane six have good traits and bad traits and personalities. They thought through. Sometimes I feel people do not put much effort into their OC. Piling up good traits without any bad ones can be MS, as well as the opposite. 

Anyway, argument aside, I do love the coloring on this stamp.

I think it depends on how unrealistically awesome the character winds up being lol.

If the character is like the author, but is not 100% infallible then it is fine. However, the original Mary Sue from the original Star Trek fanfic who was so unrealistic that now we have the term Mary Sue link: www.jessesword.com/sf/view/109… <--um here. In the fanfic Mary Sue was the youngest officer in Starfleet history, awesome at everything from karate to zoology, everyone liked her, and was missed by everyone when she perished.

For me it depends. Because I watched an episode of MLP FIM and I just couldn't like the characters because of how marry-sueish I found them, but there are other shows with characters that are a bit like Mary Sue's/Gary Sue's but they are likeable.
