The Top Ten
Worst Mary sue in anime.
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.
She was barely seen training and all of a sudden she’s #1
Mikasa was in the training corp I thought this was explained in the anime, and even if a character is perfect in strength, strength isn't the only thing that can make a Marry Sue. A Marry Sue is a character with no flaws that is liked by everyone and has almost no struggle or development in the plot. Now if you've been paying attention and actually watched Attack on Titan Mikasa has struggled multiple times, not everyone likes her, and she has made her own mistakes. Not to mention she is obsessive. Plus the plot has developed her logically to have potential that isn't exclusive to her. A Marry Sue would have little development and typically a "special power" that's exclusive only to the Marry Sue - thedoctorcrow
I watched the anime only one season and I can tell that DIS girl'S A MARY SUE because #1.she is SOMEHOW WITHOUT TRAINING AS MUCH AS THE OTHERS the strongest (...!?!? ) #2.she is after the MIAN CHARACTER (Eren who in my opinion should be with Levi hehehe...) #3whenever someone describes her in the show,they usually say stuff like pretty or strong #4.have a great day filled with happiness ya'll!
Erza's not a mary-sue. Just because this series is Fairy Tail is why everyone would believe that. Fairy Tail is just the strongest guild in the anime, and in it has to have strong people, and Erza is one of them. She's not just a bland character. Yes, on the outside, she's strong and literally perfect, but inside, she's quite fragile and broken. She does care what others think of her, and cares about others. Sure, you may say that Erza's a marysue because she's good and cares about her guild, wins every battle, but honestly, no. Hiro Mashima stated that if Erza and Mira went against each other, Erza would lose. Also, she wins because of her love of Fairy Tail. It's also why Natsu and Gray have won every single battle against their enemy. - plezdonthateerza
I hate her so much. I have a list of things that make her a Mary Sue.
- S class
- Most powerful female wizard in the guild
- Has a unique, rare magic
- Is pretty
- Intimidates everyone
- Has respect from everyone
- Has a tragic past
- She defeats anyone she comes by
- No character development
- Bland personality
- also did I mention men look at her wherever she goes?
But, I do like that she's supportive of Natsu, Gray, and Lucy. But besides that, 0/10
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.
She wins every battle basically, is a queen, overpowered, and just flat out perfect. Nasty is kind of a Gary Stu, but Erza is such a Mary sue
She should be on top! - Interrogator
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
I don't hate him, but he's the definition of a Gary Stu. - Goku02
King of Mary sues.Literally hacked a game while in the game at age 14
He is automatically the best player any any game, gain one of a kind powers in any game he visited with almost no work in it, and every girl falls in love with kirito. not to mention he has little charter to speak of, to the point it is decided by whoever is righting it. How is Kirito not a bad Mary sue?
I'm only voting to say that whoever put Revy here has no idea what a Mary Sue is. Revy's is morally corrupt, killing people for money or just because they made her made. She has a personality; angry, sadistic, and found of swearing. She's strong but not the most powerful character in Black Lagoon. The most powerful woman in Roanapur is Balalaika.
I wouldn't call her a Mary Sue because she has her flaws. But she isn't a good character either.
I really dislikes Sakura for hurting Naruto but in my opinion, she has many flaws in every episode she's appear. - LisaDanny
She's not a mary sue lol
Any Female Pokémon character that is isn’t a Pokémon is annoying
If anything, she's an anti sue! She can't do ANYTHING! SHE HAS TOO MANY FLAWS TO DO IT.
I don't see how she's a Mary sue. - Tia-Harribel
What why Nagisa
I didn't watch this anime but how she's mary sue?
How? - Kuro
Even kirito will cringe.. - MilkTae
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.
We should bring Sakamoto from Sakamoto desu ga into these catogories.
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
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?
Wow he's so good he shows up 2 times on the list (check no.5 for proof) - FriendlyBaka
Kira is definitely a mary sue. He is always trying to play the role of "god." And I do not know why their are fans in the community that praises his gundam. His gundam is pretty generic to me. Hell, he stole the spotlight from Shinn in Seed Destiny.
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
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
Well, in the original game she was a literal computer program
Oh my lord; ALTER EGO HAD MORE FLAWS THAN HER AND SO DID K1-B0, A LITERAL ROBOT
Have y'all ever noticed that in the game we never rebuted a single one of her claims o n c e?
Also she's mega OP and possessed too much power.
She has no personality whatsoever. Just your run off the mill marysue best girl.
She's literally just waifubait-
Anyway sorry for the rant I just hate her so much. People hate Akane for being "bland" but Chiaki lacked so much more personality.
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
I swear this girl can't speak a sentence without implying how bad she wants to bang her onii-sama.
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
She should be number one. She stole someone's crush and everyone loves her. She's such a Mary sue
Is It just me or that she seems to have no problems in her life? - MLPFan
While many MANY MANY people love her, I find myself hating her, reasons :
1. boys falling for her without her even raising a finger
2. she is very smart and hardworking
3. she can change a person's heart almost instantly with only a few words.
to be honest if she is not considered a mary sue than I don't agree with the concept of mary sue
Loved the anime. Hated this character.
She is a waifu
She's considered to be special in her universe because she is apparently the only with bright red hair (hell, even the anime is named after this fact). What's more, she has guys trying to court her left and right without her even having to lift a (probably perfectly manicured, even though she's an herbalist) finger. She's kind to everyone she meets, is a hard worker, and seems to have no inherent faults.
I'd say she's in the running for being a Mary Sue (albeit a less severe example of one, but still).
The creator tried to make her the most cutest anime girl ever but HA! they failed because about everyone seems to hate her that's what they get for making an annoying Mary sue that acts like a brat. I can't believe they thought a brat would be cute they are so stupid and since Mary sues are what people wish to be I guess the creator wishes to be hated by everybody. Her angry puffed up face is very ugly and a 16 year old acting like a 5 year old isn't cute.
Her chibi form is the ugliest thing I have ever seen in my life! Her face is a face of a demon. If she was meant to be cute then no people need to know the difference between what is annoying and what is cute I don't think anyone could think someone so selfish can be cute. I find anime expressions to be annoying and stupid and it looks even worse on this selfish demon.
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
Hikari from Umaru is one of the best characters ever because although she is lazy like Umaru at least she is nice to her brother.
Even Rinne noticed in one episode of ViViD Strike! that Vivio was sort of a Mary Sue. - PerfectImpulseX
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)
Her physical and magical capacity is superior to most modern mages (because she's the last in the line of Heiliger Kaisers of Ancient Belka)
Is very fast and has extreme reflexes
And has a device that's disguised as a little stuffed bunny companion named Chris (Scared Heart)
I haven't watched all of ViVid yet but I still think Vivio is sort of a mary sue.
I've heard that MRLN Force is considered to be the worst thing to ever come from the Nanoha franchise. It was apparently so bad that it got cancelled halfway through the story and the creators of the Nanoha franchise seem to have forgotten that it ever existed. - PerfectImpulseX
A Mary sue is someone who has no flaws and the universe bends to their will. I don't see how Lucy is a Mary Sue shes not too strong, too emotional, and tends to whine. In order to get where she is now she had to work hard and train and she still isn't the strongest.
Ugliest mary sue ever - FreddyFazStark123
Lucy Heartfilia is a fictional character and the main female protagonist of the Fairy Tail manga and anime series created by Hiro Mashima.
He's a joke character though - Kuro
Sasuke has so many flaws that it's ridiculous to consider him a Gary Stu. - Goku02
Definitely one of the worst Mary Sues
Ok half of these people are guys. Mary Sue is females lol
Yuno Gasai had so much potential. I really wanted to like her, but in the end, the only personality she ended up showing is her blind and naive "love" for Yuki.
She’s never lost to anyone else and has too much angst and just easily defeats other people in a few seconds I don’t know what else is Sue if she isn’t.
"Eat carrots and be overpowered! "
Be faster than the speed of light!
Needs to be #1.
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
What a bitch -.-
He's this perfect boy that can do anything with perfect friends, family and a perfect girlfriend in his perfect world.
He's so annoying like every single character in the anime~
She's inhuman. Almost no flaws.
She's best girl though - Kuro
Tsumiki Miniwa ( 御庭 つみき Miniwa Tsumiki) is the main protagonist of Acchi Kocchi. She is a student at the Nekoge Prefectural High School.
Tsumiki is a short girl with long purple-blue hair that reaches her ankles. Her hair is tied into a very low ponytail with a fat white scrunchie. She has sleepy, purple eyes.
She forms cat ears and a cat tail from time to time.
Tsukune Aono is the main male protagonist of the anime/manga series Rosario + Vampire. He is a human teenager who is mistakenly enrolled in an academy for monsters, where he meets Moka Akashiya, a vampire who takes an interest in him and the sweet flavor of his blood. Despite liking Moka (average), Tsukune soon encounters Kurumu Kurono, Yukari Sendo, Ruby Tōjō, and Mizore Shirayuki, all of whom develop feelings for him and become his closest friends.
Not to mention he ends up becoming one of the most powerful monsters in the end, with the power of the harem.
Through undisputed queen of Mary Sues
The most annoying™ Mary Sue you'll see.
Another character that shouldn’t be on this list. Her biggest flaw, aka being shy, is literally why some people dislike her, as they say she doesn’t change from it. Even characters in the show have called out Hinata’s submissive demeanor.
If she was a Mary Sue, she also would’ve gotten back the title of the Hyuga Clan without trying and have Hiashi, Hanabi, and Neji as her servants. Add that with the fact that she lost a lot of her canon fights and, well, Hinata isn’t a Mary Sue, she is just not written as well as she should’ve been. - Nymphette
How is Katara a Mary-Sue? The biggest flaw she has is that she acts like everyone’s mother who’s always right to the point where she can sometimes be a tad petty/naggy and she usually ends up having small arguments with said people she’s treating like fragile class and/or kinda mess up a plan. Those characters also call her out on it, by the way.
Katara would only be a Mary-Sue if she was allowed to try to control everyone else’s decisions without them ever trying to argue back at her. If she’s on her list due to her love interests, well, other characters also had multiple characters that were attracted to them. So many characters on this list aren’t Mary Sues lol. - Nymphette
Well, some people say he's a little whiny, I don't see it, but I guess that's a flaw? And that he maybe shouldn't be on this list? - MirajaneStrauss
Don't get me wrong, AOT is awesome but, I feel like he's just too strong
I hope he was dead!
Um this is not anime
This isn't anime,dumbass.
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!
She is one of the worst villains of Nickelodeon
BEST THING NICKELODEON EVER DONE BY FAR ONE OF MY favorite CHARACTERS
Whoa. Hold your horses buddy, Azula is far from a mary-sue, did you even bother to watch the final episodes of ATLA? Her sanity was crumbling to the ground, and if i’m not mistaken, that’s a flaw.
There are so many wrong things about her.
1. She's a world-class patisserié at the age of 13.
2. Turns out she's actually a fairy too.
3. She becomes the sixth and supposedly green Precure. (Hint: She's not. She's rainbow all over her attire. Her transformation background is the only green thing about her.)
4. Everyone has an animal motif, bunny, squirrel, lion, cat and dog. Cure Parfaits is a pegasus. (If it helps, she also gets flipping wings when she transforms.)
5. Her first attack, Kirakuru Rainbow, is just as strong as the 5 other cures team attack, 3, 2 Wonderful A Lá Mode.
6. She is the "I sympathise with the villain and reform them later" girl.
7. Om the top of all of that, she's lived in France for a long time, and constantly uses french words.
8. Pink hair.
