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 Edward Cullen is a fictional character in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. He is featured in the books Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, and their corresponding film adaptations, and the as yet unfinished novel Midnight Sun—a re-telling of the events of Twilight from Edward's perspective. ...read more.

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 Kagome Higurashi is the main female protagonist of the anime/manga series Inuyasha, equaled only in importance by Inuyasha himself.

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

While inuyasha was close to an anti Stu, this b***h made it look like they took some crappy original story about some stupid slutty Mary Sue & turned it into an anime. Everything she whined home about was inuyasha's fault. He still had some feelings for a girl he was cheated from even though they aren't dating? Everyone yelled at Inuyasha and faulted him because he had feelings for two girls 🙄 Kagome upsets inuyasha because she's being nice to a jerk who is obviously hindering their process & flirting around with him & once kagome whines home inuyasha is at fault for showing how much of a stupid slut she is! And inuyasha can't have feelings for a girl that he was cheated of (& is technically kagome), but kagome can string along THREE GUYS with absolutely no consusqense or even a little judgment from her friends! And somehow that whinny stupid skank is able to make inuyasha fall for her by doing nothing but be a DiD, constantly nag at him, let shippo get away from being a brat to ...more

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

Sasuke is just another Naruto wanker. Naruto is real the Gary Stu, the whole manga is a Naruto wankfest.

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

Well at least Misty sometimes apologized to Ash, she did have a bad temper but she respects and cares Ash a lot and she is better than Serena

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.

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

7 Tina Boland - Arrow
8 Amy Rose - Sonic Series Amy Rose - Sonic Series Amy Rose is a fictional character in SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog series. She is a pink anthropomorphic hedgehog with a cheerful, competitive personality, and is infatuated with the series' main character, Sonic. She serves as the first playable female character in the series.

A terrible self centered, controling, obsessive, feminist creep.

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

9 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

10 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

The Contenders

11 Sara Lance - Arrow
12 Korra Korra Avatar Korra is the title lead character in Nickelodeon's animated television series The Legend of Korra, in which she is depicted as the current incarnation of the Avatar, responsible for maintaining peace and balance in the world.

She single-handed ruined the lore behind Avatar. She is not a worthy successor to Aang.

I don't see how she is a Mary Sue, & don't understand her hate at all. She struggled with her training with Tenzin, people in the city mostly had a negitive view on her throughout the series, her temper ruined a lot of things for her, her relationship with mako was a train wreck, she struggled fighting when she recovered from being paralyzed, etc.

And yes, she’s nothing like aang. It makes 1000000% sense too. SHE isn't RELATED TO AANG AT ALL! Was aang like the previous air bender avatar? No. Was aang like Roku? No. Would it be boring & stupid if Korra was just an aang clone? ABSOLUTELY! I love aang, but we already have an aang & we don't need a copy story in a female character. I don't like the legend of Korra that much & Korra is far from my favorite character, but her hate is stupid.

13 Batman - DC Comics Batman - DC Comics Batman aka Bruce Wayne is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

In film, he has been portrayed by Lewis Wilson, Robert Lowery, Adam West, Michael ...read more.
14 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

15 Mickey Mouse - Disney Mickey Mouse - Disney Mickey Mouse is a funny animal cartoon character and the official mascot of The Walt Disney Company. He was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928.
16 Ulysses - Fallout: New Vegas
17 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

18 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.

19 Aiga Akaba - Beyblade
20 Kirito - Sword Art Online

He's not a bad character, but he's definitely a little too perfect. - Solacress

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

22 Lana Lang - Smallville
23 Damian Wayne - DC Comics
24 Alice - Resident Evil
25 Tony Stark - MCU
26 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.

27 Ritchie - Pokemon
