Worst & Most Annoying Mary Sues/Gary Stus in Any Fiction

While the term is mostly meant for OC's, there is no denying that there are Mary Sues/Gary Stu like characters in a lot of fiction. Here are some where a series/game/etc might have been better if they didn't exist.

The Top Ten

1 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.

Good at everything including things she's never done before, never gets called out when she does something wrong, gets praised for things that other characters get hate for, is loved by everyone on the show to an unrealistic degree and has no flaws whatsoever.

This character is a perfect example of why you should never pander to a vocal minority on tumblr.

2 Bella Swan - Twilight Saga Bella Swan - Twilight Saga

All the guys loved her! She's so pretty, but 'average,' had so many friends she knew how to help, but her pathetic attachment & how pathetic in general to Edward as well as her shallowness went past all in the story. - person5000

3 Edward Cullen - Twilight Saga Edward Cullen - Twilight Saga

And here we have Mr. Marty Stu himself. The mysterious, controling, creepy, abusive, 'dreamboat' who was able to woo Bella when no other guy was able to without doing anything besides be pretty. - person5000

4 Kagome Higurashi - Inuyasha Kagome Higurashi - Inuyasha

If she's useless, she's not a Mary sure. She's just bad. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Useless, stupid, bratty, self-centered, hypocritical, controling, & strung 3 guys on. Only one who ever called her out for these was 'always in the wrong' & was always the one who should be ridiculed. because she's 'nice' & can find the shards. - person5000

5 Sasuke - Naruto Sasuke - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

All the girls excluding Hinata wanted to be with sasuke. He's also a prodigy. One of the few who survived a massicre of his clan. Is pretty big d-bag, betrayed his village, has little to no personality, and he got away with everything. - person5000

6 Serena - Pokemon XY the Series Serena - Pokemon XY the Series

It's so strange that I like her as a character halfway, but then the other half just screams "MARY SUE" - SpyroZap99

Thank you for adding this, person5000. - eventer51314

Again, useless = bad, not Mary sue. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I'll agree that Serena is somewhat a Mary Sue, but like it or not, she had character development.
Only a blind hater would say so.
And this is coming from someone who also hated Serena at some point. - Yungstirjoey

7 Amy Rose - Sonic Series Amy Rose - Sonic Series

Rude, bossy, controling, whinny, bratty, & innconsiderate. But she has tons of friends, and her trying to force sonic to love her only gets people to happily laugh at them. - person5000

8 Shippo - Inuyasha Shippo - Inuyasha

Is useless throughout his run, but was able to survive by being a brat, getting away with it since only inuyasha cared, putting the guy who helped him down all the time, whinning to inuyasha about everything, and run away screaming when there is a demon coming after him. Of course, 'he's just a child do he can get away with murder! ' - person5000

9 Tina Boland - Arrow
10 Mako - The Legend of Korra (Season 1) Mako - The Legend of Korra (Season 1)

Strong prodigy fire bender who even got the attention of the main villian. Had 2 girls chasing after him, & ended up with one even though he cheated on the other. Doesn't really have a stable personality ether, as he was calm rescuing HIS ONLY FAMILY HE KNOWS, but freaks out over Korra. - person5000

The Contenders

11 Blackstar - Soul Eater Blackstar - Soul Eater

The most annoying thing in the soul eater universe. However, only villians hate him & everyone else likes/is fine with him. He has an IQ of negative 100, but is as overpowered as God himself. - person5000

12 Rouge - Sonic Series Rouge - Sonic Series

Strong, smart, & cunning. Though let's ignore she's an idoit and was going to let SHADOW DESTROY THE WORLD. She's a known Jewel thief AND part of a military like group (gun). That's possible. They souldnt care that she steals. She shouldn't get into trouble, because...? - person5000

Got the hawtt popular guy just because, can heal & somewhat fight, got away with attacking Naruto for no reason

16 Shadow - Sonic

The 'ultimate weapon' who the whole exasitance scares humanity for being so strong & has rings that hold his powers. Very personalityless, but got rouge's interest dispite she's into rare Jewels more than any other guy.

17 Mona - Warioware

Is very obvious she's just mostly eye candy as there's a part showing off she's cheerleading, has tons of jobs while she going to school, can communicate with animals & they help her, & if it's true that wario is interested in her because any other time wario prefers coins to any other pretty woman.

18 Ritchie - Pokemon

"In an ash clone! I beat ash because the referee was idiotic! " Pfft please ash has far more character than this drone of a boy even when he's at his worst. - HeavyDonkeyKong
