Top Ten Mary Sues In Anime/Manga

For the characters that could do no wrong, had no flaws, were the best at everything, and so forth.
For a good definition of Mary Sue, see this web page:

The Top Ten

1 Mikasa Ackerman (Attack of the Titan) Mikasa Ackerman (Attack of the 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.

I literally don't understand how Mikasa is a Mary Sue. Because she's always there for Eren (and Armin)? Her mom told her to protect Eren, anyway. Mikasa's Awesome.

Worst Mary sue in anime.

She was barely seen training and all of a sudden she’s #1

2 Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail) Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail) Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail . Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her friends' calls that they want more.

Basically the true meaning of Mary Sue. Erza wins all of her fights, gets to much credit, and has a tragic past. She also has a very bland personality and has no character development.

Erza is probably the biggest Mary Sue there is. People may consider Lucy or Juvia to be a Mary Sue, but Erza is the queen of all Mary Sues!

Simple because she is best

Tsk Tsk Tsk... Erza does win MANY fights but she couldn’t hold her own against Jellal she got Natsu to do that. Erza is the peacekeeper of Fairy Tail, she is a borderline Sue but not a HUGE Sue.

3 Moka Akashiya (Rosario + Vampire) Moka Akashiya (Rosario + Vampire) Moka Akashiya is a fictional title character from the Japanese manga and anime series Rosario + Vampire.

Okay, just think about it. She is the most beautiful in the school, and gets all the guys. She is a morally right and kind person. She has a poor past in which others at school bullied her when she went to school with humans. In Vampire Mode, she's still as, if not more, beautiful, and defeats literally EVERYONE in less than 1 minute! Mary Sue, much? I don't know about character development, because I stopped midway because I don't exactly like ecchi, and only watched it because my brother practically forced me to. Not that it's not good if you are into "ecchi" (kind of like anime porn, with no sexual actions.)

We all know it


4 Shiba Tatsuya (Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei) Shiba Tatsuya (Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei)

I just finished the anime I would knew I would find him here

This guy is the best mary I'm sure you'll agree with me if you watched the anime. Also the lightnovel.

I guess ill like him anyways meh

5 Miyuki Shiba (Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei)

She's as bad as her brother, In fact worse.
Most powerful magician? Check.
So powerful, the only person who can rival her is only Lina? Check. (I think Lina is better than her. At least Lina still has a personality)
Most likely Yotsuba leader? Check.
A really high psion count? Check.
Zone Interference? Check.
Very popular? Check.
Being described using "purple prose" in the novels? Check.
Having the novels to overly exagerrate her greatness? (Looks, grades, skills, talents, everything)
A beauty that breaks the natural laws? Check.
Gets anyone who saw her to immediately be flustered, REGARDLESS OF WHO SAW HER? Check.
Top grades at school? Check.
No actual weaknesses that could actually give her problems? Check.
She's a bigger mary sue than her brother, at least in my opinion. Oh and her only defining trait is only "I love you, Onii sama". That's It. Nothing else in her character. Why Isn't she higher In this list and more importantly, how come ...more - MLPFan

6 Kirito (Sword Art Online) Kirito (Sword Art Online) Kazuto Kirigaya is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

Even though the show is kind of special to me because it was one of the fist animes I've ever watched, I have to agree. Too many girls fall for him, which is annoying, but the reason he seems overpowered is because he just the kind of person who's good at video games. But still, I agreed he is a Gary Stu

Hate him so much I would have vote for tatsuya shiba but I can't stand Kirito he can do no wrong and every girl seems to fall for him how?

I don't hate him, but he's the definition of a Gary Stu. - Goku02

Why isn't he #1? - PerfectImpulseX

7 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.


8 Maria Imari (This Art Club Has A Problem!) Maria Imari (This Art Club Has A Problem!)

Is It just me or that she seems to have no problems in her life? - MLPFan

9 Miyuki Takara (Lucky Star) Miyuki Takara (Lucky Star)
10 Tatsuya Shiba (Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei)

Literally Magic Jesus, in every sense of the word. He's the walking equivalent of a tactical nuke, got girls falling for him at first glance, and is also a world-renowned magic engineer. There has not been a single enemy that has posed a credible threat to him. Did I mention he also one-shotted the entire Chinese navy?

The Newcomers

? Vivio Takamachi (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha)

Has heterochromia
Hogs the spotlight in MGLN ViVid from the main characters of the franchise/her parents, Nanoha and Fate
Has a tragic backstory (she's a clone of the last Saint Kaiser/leader of Ancient Belka who was intended to be a vessel for the Saint's Cradle) - PerfectImpulseX

? Chizuru Aizawa (Squid Girl) Chizuru Aizawa (Squid Girl)

The Contenders

11 Kira Yamato (Mobile Suit Gundam SEED)

Kira's not a Gary Stu. If you actually watched SEED and SEED Destiny, you could see that he actually has some flaws. - PerfectImpulseX

More specifically in Gundam SEED Destiny. - OnyxDash

12 Chiaki Nanami (Danganronpa 3 - Despair Arc) Chiaki Nanami (Danganronpa 3 - Despair Arc)

She's not a Mary Sue, she had her own insecurities and issues. If she was truly a Mary Sue, then she would have somehow survived the execution and beaten the mastermind. Instead, she got killed after thinking that she could survive. On top of this, it's somewhat her fault that the events of the series took place for encouraging everybody to fight back in a clearly unwinnable situation. I'm not a fan of Chiaki since she has the personality of a strip of cardboard, but she isn't a Mary Sue - kempokid

She wasn't that bad in the SDR2 game, but I'm starting to dislike her from rewatching Despair arc. I mean, her whole class fell into despair and DESTROYED THE WORLD just by seeing a video of her? And also' everyone in despair arc somehow acted that the only reason they exist is just to fawn and worship her. And her fanbase filled who always go like "CHIAKI IS BEST GIRL! 1111! ONE! " Or "KODAKA? WHY DID U KILL CHIAKI? I NO LIKE U, KODAKA. your EVIL FOR KILLING BEST GIRL CHIAKI" or "NU UH! BEST GIRL ISN'T A MARRY SUE. SHUT UP because SHE'S CUTE AND HOW YOU CALL HER ONE JUST SHOWS HOW CRUEL U ARE :P" seriously need to get a life. The only (in general) reason they like her is because she's a cute gamer girl whose waifu material, but they don't wanna admit that - MLPFan

13 Goku ( Dragon Ball Z) Goku ( Dragon Ball Z) Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He had many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

"Eat carrots and be overpowered! "

14 Nagisa Furukawa (CLANNAD) Nagisa Furukawa (CLANNAD)

I don't see how she's a Mary sue. - Tia-Harribel

If anything, she's an anti sue! She can't do ANYTHING! SHE HAS TOO MANY FLAWS TO DO IT.

15 Suzuno Kamazuki (Hataraku Maou-sama)
16 Eren Jaeger (Attack on Titan) Eren Jaeger (Attack on Titan) Eren Yeager, spelled Eren Jaeger in the Funimation dub, is a fictional character appearing as the protagonist from the manga series Attack on Titan by Hajime Isayama.

21 Umaru Doma (Himouto! Umaru-chan) Umaru Doma (Himouto! Umaru-chan)

Her straight A student personality makes me want to punch my head to a brick wall. It's so annoying and I can't stand how the anime shoves it in our face on how much everyone loves her - MLPFan


Umaru doma is the daughter of lucifer,she claims to be the 'Kim Jong Un' in anime.She worships his father, killed Jesus Christ and Muhammad,Have so much husbands,and the worst mary sue

22 Shirayuki (Snow White with the Red Hair) Shirayuki (Snow White with the Red Hair)
23 Sayaka Maizono (Danganronpa) Sayaka Maizono (Danganronpa)

OK... Who added her!?

Jesus, didn't you see how she went insane in the killing game? I understand that you dislike her but she's nowhere close to a Mary Sue!

Also, Danganronpa has so many great characters and it pains me to see two characters (Actually, Chiaki was one) to be considered a Mary Sue... - Tuana123

24 Berna Sterne (Macross Frontier)
25 Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto) Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto) Sasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Sasuke has so many flaws that it's ridiculous to consider him a Gary Stu. - Goku02

Ok half of these people are guys. Mary Sue is females lol

29 Hitomi Shizuki (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) Hitomi Shizuki (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)
30 Stella (Winx Club)

Stella from Winx club is surely a super Mary sue.Of course she is as, she's talented, powerful, spotlight hogger, has family issues, BFF of the leader of club, Blondie, princess and rich.That's it I know she's loser in studies but Winx isn't about studies so she's definitely a Mary sue,plus she's still my favorite character! Also she's seen in every single comic and episode,most of the plot is related to her and her outfits are the best.That's why!
