Top Ten Most Annoying Mary Sues


The Top Ten

1 Bella Swan: Twilight Bella Swan: Twilight

It says a lot that the most interesting thing to happen to vampires (the selling point) is bland teenage girl with no aspirations in life. Either vampires are just that boring or your character is unnecessarily the center of the universe with no explanation as to why and I think we all know what the answer is.

Look at the picture. It screams Mary Sue. - RiverClanRocks

I knew that Bella Swan would be on this list. "I can't live without Edward! " She is an absolute disgrace to every independent woman out there.

I hate Twilight. Bella Swan is uninteresting and dull, and spreads a bad message to young girls. She, Edward and Jacob are all physically and emotionally ugly and are a gross eyesore for me to even look at.

Kids should be reading books like Harry Potter with strong females like Hermione Granger. - Lunala

2 Felicity Smoak: Arrow Felicity Smoak: Arrow Felicity Smoak is a DC Comics character. Her first appearance was in The Fury of Firestorm #23, created by writer Gerry Conway and artist Rafael Kayanan.

The worst Mary Sue!

She looks like the “TRIGGERED” sjw - Lunala

3 Piper McLean: Percy Jackson Piper McLean: Percy Jackson

Piper isn't that bad to be honest, but she really is a huge mary sue AND a creator's pet. While yes, she does have flaws and problems, her only purpose in the story was to prove that "aphrodite kids are not useless" because everyone forgot about silena AND to be the wish fulfillment character for the younger fans: gets a hot boyfriend and gets to live happily ever after with him, super beautiful without make up and doesn't even like it, always liked by everyone and those who dislikes her are only the villains, her flaws and mistakes never get acknowledged, is super powerful she AWAKENED A METAL DRAGON and LULLED GAIA, THE PRIMORDIAL EARTH GODDESS, TO SLEEP. wow, wow, rick riordan. I do agree that she did improve in the course of the story, but until the end she was still a mary sue and a creator's pet, and nobody can deny that.

Gorgeous looks, awesome singing, kind personality, and gets the blond haired Superman boyfriend. Yeah she struggles sometimes with her emotions, but always in a way that readers will like about her. Not much personality.

She's not the most annoying mary-sue, but she's overpowered and doesn't have much personality.

Why would you say that? Why? I love Piper.

4 Sakura Haruno: Naruto Sakura Haruno: Naruto Sakura Haruno is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

She is a half Mary Sue cause she doesn't have any real flaws in the anime itself though she is weak, she depicted strong, she's "smart" though she is actually stupid but no one in the anime realizes it. Oh, and the fact that even though she's ugly, he's got 2 guys crushing on her but got the guy who NEVER even loved her

She's annoying but not a Mary sue. - Tia-Harribel

As much as I despise Sakura, in no way is she a Mary Sue.

Sakura May be annoying and useless but she isn’t a sue. Even though she married Sasuke it was after a long time and lots of development!

5 Ginny Weasley: Harry Potter Ginny Weasley: Harry Potter

I totally agree! Please don't get mad at me for my opinion, but she is totally mary-sue material! Not talking about her falling in love with Harry, but there's plenty of other reasons that back up my statement! - PeanutButter313

Yes she is a Mary- Sue! Good at quidditch and spells, pretty, popular, and Harry likes her. She is also said to be funny. How can no one notice this of you three (ku, swell ow. Clusium) on the web there is a rant on her because she is a MARY SUE! You three is she is not a Mary Sue give me some flaws. EXACTLY YOU ARE ALL SPEECHLESS

She had flaws. She was naive, and poured her heart out to the diary. Why do people keep hating on her when she is a strong female protagonist?

6 Mikasa Ackerman - Attack On Titan Mikasa Ackerman - Attack On Titan Mikasa Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.
7 Katara: Avatar: The Last Airbender Katara: Avatar: The Last Airbender

She was the Creator's pet. Overpowered and too nice. Her one flaw was caring too much, but even that is a Mary-Holy trait!

I know I literally JUST VOTED FOR HER, but I need to scream my dissent. KATARA IS NOT A MARY SUE

How the hell is she on here? she kicks ass! She has so many levels of personality! - CharlotteDisagrees


8 Beth March: Little Women

Yes!... ugh. But lol no one commented on this. Guess little women isn't much of a thing these days... and by the way JO IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN BETH

9 Serena: Pokemon Serena: Pokemon Serena has proven to be a kind and polite girl but she can also be openly rebellious towards her mother, Grace. In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, she refused to wake up when Grace ordered her to, and gave a sassy response to her mother's call to watch the news. This tumultuous relationship more.

Pretty does not mean she is not an absolute crap character. She has no personality except for being an openly annoying character. I only feel like the pokemon seasons are only getting worse. I loved the first season, but if you love the other seasons, this is just my silly personal opinion, so take this with a grain of salt.

Her plot arc is often too perfect... She gets through performances far too smoothly. However, slightly border-line. She is too simplistic a character, though, so I'll say yes because when she has a plot-line she gets through it way too easily. - bugger

She has no purpose in the anime. All she does is act as one of Ash's clingy love interests, that Ash always rejects in the end. - RisingMoon

She's that "pretty girl next door who has a crush on the main charter"

10 Edward Cullen: Twilight Edward Cullen: Twilight

He's an abusive creep. He stalks Bella all the time and she doesn't bother to report him to the police because she's an idiot as well. - TwilightKitsune

Doesn't he like, stalk Bella? That's creepy, not handsome...

The most stupid male character ever! Total Gary Stu.

He and Jacob are both so ugly and hideous. They look like bald Rhesus monkeys with Peter Griffin butt chins.

Cullen stalks girls and watches them sleep. His name sounds stupid. He abuses Bella, the ugliest little Mary-Sue to grace the world of literature.

AWFUL. Go read HP instead. - Lunala

The Contenders

11 Katniss Everdeen: Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen: Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen is a fictional character and the protagonist of The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. She is portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence in the film adaptation franchise.

May or may not be a Mary Sue, but I still like her because she's pragmatic, of course until Peeta's involved and her whole "put survival first" mentality get's compromised and she's about as annoying as they come. I don't know if that's inconsistent writing or "character development", but whatever it was it didn't work. - DisniPrinzess

Praised as a hero but hardly does anything heroic.

Absolutely NOT the Mary Sue

You're totally right. - bugger

12 Lionblaze: Warrior Cats Lionblaze: Warrior Cats Lionblaze is a character in the Warrior Cats series . He is part of The Three, along with Jayfeather and Dovewing, and has the power of being undefeated in battle . However, the power if removed from him after the Clans are saved from the Dark Forest .

Thank God he lost his powers and that Squirrelflight was made deputy instead.

Dovewing should be on this list, not Lionblaze. He was a mary-sue, but not nearly as much as Dovewing.

Dovewing should be on this list. That's all I'm gonna say.

13 Jean Grey: Marvel
14 Princess Aurora: Sleeping Beauty

And the biggest Mary-Sue trait of all, a classical singing voice.

Also, she falls in love at first sight.

Beloved by all who know her except the villain? Check.
Ability to talk communicate with animals? Check.
A 16 year old girl with the appearance of a 22 year old woman? Check.
Long golden hair and rose red lips? Check.
Royalty? Check.
Under a curse with a guy needing to rescue her? Check.

Verdict: A bigger Mary-Sue than Bella Swan could ever hope to be.

15 Renesmee Cullen

An even bigger Mary sue than her mother,Bella Swan. - Tia-Harribel

I've said this before and I'll say it again: She's a nothing character who's literally a plot device to solve all conflicts without any work put into. She literally makes no sense and it becomes very clear that her existence and traits are just that to cater to Jacob and his fans - and a pretty poor job of it as a Jacob fan. Her existence literally makes New Moon, Eclipse and the werewolves pointless because if you took them out the book would flow perfectly and more cohesively and all because of this plot hole of a character.

We all thought Bella was a Mary Sue - well enter Renesemee, the epitome of perfection, everyone who meets her loves her and those who don't are immediately villainized and killed for such a thought. She is the specialist of snowflakes - at first the only of her kind and then the only not to kill her mother. She's the most powerful of all the mutants - only one with psychic powers to get past Bella's sheild, and doesn't even need to talk to communicate. ...more - DisniPrinzess

I have to agree
weirdest name ever (check)
pretty (check)
OP (check)

16 Bloom: Winx Club


17 Nala: The Lion King

She's not annoying!

18 Tris: Divergent

I like Divergent, on a concept level, and for its leagues of well-written secondary characters, but holy cow is Tris obnoxious. - seeker46

Personally when Divergent started out, I liked it. But after a while, Tris and Four's character seemed Mary Sue/Gary Stu-ish to me. Tris is an all goody-goody character who always swayed everyone else around her, exception to Peter, but that's only because Peter is a bad guy. Meanwhile Four was a stereotypical hot edgy. Neither of them have realistic flaws. And no, being afraid of heights isn't considered a flaw. Heck, when both of them went to the future in Insurgent, everybody there practically worshipped them.

Because of this, I found the rest of the books/movie to be very bland. - MillieTrina_Prower

19 Cinderella: Cinderella

The person below me doesn't know what a Mary Sue is

Right? because having 4 people harass u all your life because u r a true princess or whatever means your a Mary Sue?

20 Anna: Frozen Anna: Frozen Princess Anna of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

I wouldn't say Anna is a Mary Sue. She's gullible, naive, and stubborn - But that's what made her to be one of the only characters in Frozen to be lovable. - MillieTrina_Prower

21 Elena Gilbert

I don't know who lied to people, but just because she's slightly more rational than Bella Swan doesn't eliminate her from this category - she is a Mary Sue to its fullest extent in the book and T.V. show. Seriously, never have I seen the world revolve around a character as much as her. There are shows where the name of the main character is in the title and the show doesn't even come close to revolving around them as much as a human girl in a show about vampires. Not to mention her bland nonexistent personality that somehow gets praised for no reason. At least the book gave you some key traits to work with that might resemble a personality, but the show didn't even try - or they did in an effort to make her more likable, but ended up making her worse. But in both every, and I mean every, guy falls to her feet, she's inexplicably selfless in that people keep saying it and yet she hasn't shown it once, and the worlds biggest hypocrite. She will criticize and try to change the ...more - DisniPrinzess

I don't think so because she's got so many flaws but I don't know,maybe slightly. - Tia-Harribel

Having flaws doesn't really eliminate a character from being a Mary Sue. If that were true it would eliminate the number one on this list Bella Swan because she's swimming in flaws. It's more about how their flaws are addressed in their narrative and in both each of the characters are treated as perfect angels (Elena is literally one in the book series) who can do no wrong even when they do. - DisniPrinzess

The best thing you can say about her is that at least she isn't Bella Swan �" that should tell you all you need about this center of the universe (literally) character.

22 Barbie

Barbie's Mary Sue trait is what actually makes her lovable. She was INTENDED to be one so that it would be comically amusing. This especially applies well to "Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse," Barbie being so perfect that it was unrealistic made up for the hilarity of the show. - MillieTrina_Prower

She is the DEFINITION of a Mary-Sue! She has the perfect body shape, is SUPER rich, is friends with everyone, and is dating a popular guy! I hate her!

Dude when I saw her on this list oh my But ya true shes's a mary sue on extreme levels

I hate to say it, but she is a bigger Mary-Sue than Bella Swan.

- Perfect body that’s so “perfect” that it is anatomically incorrect and could not exist in real life, even if you underwent cosmetic surgery.
- Long, perfect blonde hair.
- Sparkly, overly-detailed and expensive, fancy outfits.
- Has the “perfect” boyfriend
- Looks good in ANY clothes
- Super rich!
- Everyone likes her! Has loads of friends! Anyone who hates her is evil! - Lunala

23 Snow White: Snow White

One of the worst Mary Sues from Disney. The fairest one of them all, married a rich and handsome prince she only met twice, got 7 dwarfs to risk their lives for her in exchange for just cleaning, gorgeous singing, and befriended pretty much all the animals and a hunter who tried to kill her. Then again, a lot of princesses are perfect, it's not just her.

Well this should be higher. The 'beautifulest one of all' got villians henchmen to betray her, also gots 'beautiful' singing voice that wooed a man she never meet before, became friends with guys who she broke into their house, & had the guy save her from the poison apple due to 'love' when he didn't really ever communicate with her.

24 Bianca: Henry Danger

She's a big Mary-Sue! she's attractive, girly, quickly notices when she's doing something wrong, she's friends with everyone, dated a lot of guys, even that bad guy, Mitch aka. Bitch, Jasper has a crush on her, dated Henry and kissed him as Kid Danger, she's just PLAIN BORING...well, need I say more? - Iamcool

25 Barney The Dinosaur Barney The Dinosaur Barney The Dinosaur is a purple dinosaur from the TV series "Barney and Friends", as well as the VHS series before that known as "Barney and the Backyard Gang". He was created by Sheryl Leach in 1987, to entertain her 2 year old son. He is infamously known for his "I Love You" song, and his TV series more.

...Why? I'm laughing so hard

Why isn't he Number 1?

She's a mary-sue. She's always portrayed as "perfect" and everyone thinks she's "smart" when she's dumb. Also her appearance is described as "Her ebony orbs, her silky tresses of amethyst and emerald, her flawlessly-white smile." And she has lots of guys padding after her, and is dating two "popular" guys everyone wants. She is the total definition of Mary-Sue and she is annoying, but not as bad as Bella Swan. Barney The Dinosaur also has OP anime powers-

Guys this was satire. :D

Also Bella Swan is the biggest Mary Sue ever. - Lunala

26 Hatsune Miku Hatsune Miku Hatsune Miku, sometimes referred to as Miku Hatsune, is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media.

She is a Mary-Sue. An overrated one, at that too. - Lunala

All Vocaloid characters are.. - RaccoonCartoon


In the Daughter of Evil: Closure of Yellow book - I think that was the name - she got a prince who fell in love with her. that prince was also engaged with another princess who was known for her tyranny. the princess's brother, also her servant, also fell in love with her - like what?!. the princess was angry when the Prince broke off their engagement and he told her through a note, that 'he has a lover who has the most beautiful green hair'. actually, it should be no surprise that her character was gonna die - the princess was a jealous tyrant, for heaven's sake - they could actually prevent her death, but the stupid prince just had to say she had green hair. and now when the princess decides every woman who has green hair would die, also known as "The Green Hunting", Hatsune's character died, and the prince was so distraught he decided to kill the princess - I mean, dude, you were the reason why the princess knew her identity in the first place. in my opinion, the prince should've ...more

27 Spottedleaf: Warriors

She's too "perfect" It's annoying. And that's not the only thing I hate from her, It's also because she's so weak and useless. I despise useless characters who are only there to make the cast larger. Clawface, go and kill her again for all of us please. This time in a more sadistic method - MLPFan

I agree, I liked her but she was too perfect, I can't even name one flaw! Tragic death, beautiful, kind, made Firepaw fall in love with her at first glance, etc. - Flowersocks2137

She is such a Mary Sue, it's insane. - RiverClanRocks

I liked her but her “sweet scent” was repetetive and annoying. - Lunala

28 Jason Grace: Percy Jackson

If Edward is on the list than Jason deserves a spot as well.

True... I just didn't want to put down Piper AND Jason because I didn't want to repeat characters from the same series... - Flowersocks2137

The second biggest Gary-Stu ever, surpassed only by Kirito.

In my opinion it should be Percy Jackson himself - yungstirjoey666


29 Clary Fray: The Mortal Instruments

Great power. Check
Beautiful and doesn't entirely notice. Check
Plot revolves around her.
Is secretly/not so secretly a horrible person. CHECK
Almost everyone loves her (even her brother) check-a-runy
If you notice, she looks kind of like the author
Plus (honestly) her mother is a horrible person. A real mother would have fought for her child (the crazy one who was abused and raised as a weapon/pawn/experiment )

Young angel? Check
Perfect beauty? Check
Everybody likes her? Check
Perfect boyfriend? Check - Yungstirjoey

31 Rosalina Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise .

Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games more.
32 Harry Potter: Harry Potter

How can you say that Ginny or Harry are Mary Sues? They both have flaws, like anger, stubbornness, complaining! They both were really good and well developed characters and do not deserve this kind of discrimination!

Really? How about his anger issues? How about how whiney he is? How about how stubborn he is? How about his procrastination? Ginny is the Mary Sue!

Harry Potter is female?

Harry is a wimp! BUT NOT GINNY AT ALL!

33 Kion: The Lion Guard Kion: The Lion Guard A lion cub who's the son of Simba and Nala, Mufasa's grandson, Kiara's younger brother, the prince of the Pride Lands, and the leader of the Lion Guard. He's the group's fiercest member. Kion serves as the main protagonist of the series.

All the characters SUCK, I mean, in one episode that stupid lion cub threatened to take down a gorilla, and he is just a lion cub! He also defeats animals 10x his size, which is impossible. - RaccoonCartoon

I really loathe that marty stu. Every other character is made incompetent, mean, or is just ignored just to make Kion look good instead of actually trying to make him an actual character. His timeline contradicting existence would had made him more forgivable if:
1. He was older than Kiara (maybe being the lion cub at the end of the first movie.)
2.He didn't have this overpowered fun-killing roar of his. That roar made me lose interest in this show. It's too predictable and makes the writting less creative.
3. He has none of this magical nonsense of the lion guard and it was just a title he gave himself just to help others.
4. If he was actually a flawed but likeable fun character who does not rely on his heroism alone.

However, it is too late to do this because some people didn't do a good job to execute the ideas. Kion does not belong in the lion king universe as he pretty much does more harm than good. In fact his design looks out of place as well. Kiara is a ...more

34 Twilight Sparkle: My Little Pony

She has magic powers, she's super smart, she can fly, she's sort of a princess, she's pretty, everyone loves her, she's a stereotypical character. - RaccoonCartoon

Yeyes yes so much of a Mary sue. Should be 1 with Bella swan 2


35 Kirito: Sword Art Online

Definitely should be on here he has a harem, over powered, and bland. Even a rock has more of a personality than him

36 Firestar: Warriors

Does he even have flaws? If he mated with Spottedleaf, they would be a MARY-SUE COUPLE and they will have kits, and those kits become mary-sues like them! - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

This should be #1. Does she ever exhibit ANY flaws? Nuu. She just sits on her tail and whines about her responsibility and powers - KayleeKicklighter

Dovewing is not a mary sue. she has flaws and if you were to make a list of why she is a mary sue most of it would be made up. mary sues don't have flaws. - SeeU

Almost an exact duplicate of Bella, and the few qualities Anastasia possess that she does not share with Bella are worse.

She has a map for every area (so she's not really an explorer anyway, she's a traveller), a magic backpack which can collect stars or something? She has a talking map and everyone loves her except for the few villains, which eventually become friends with her anyway, and somehow she can scare Swiper off. The only thing she can't do is hear! - RaccoonCartoon

Dora has her own map, a magical backpack, and can prevent Swiper from swiping

47 Jo March: Little Women

Smart, author's insert, independent in a time women weren't supposed to be...Her only flaw was her temper, to make her "feisty," which is an annoying flaw to make girls seem sassy and more independent. She was just extremely dislikable. I grew up hearing how girls idolized her, and I don't get it. I will never take her as my role model.

She's not a Mary Sue! Geez, I hope that whoever put her on this list doesn't actually think she is one... pathetic

Doesn’t know one of his parents
Only flaw is devotion to his friends
Has three girls and one guy that fall for him
