This is an example of a Mary-Sue, a character who is too perfect to be beleivable. Not very fun to RP with, because he character is always superior.


Name: Luelle-Beauty-Diamond-Rose-Mina-Maxine. But she prefers her nickname ‘Falcon’.

Gender: Female

Age: 16

Birthday: Spring 1

Hair Colour: Blonde with brown streaks, but changes whenever she wants it to.

Eye Colour: Changes with her mood.

Favourite Food: Her own home-made cookies!

Least Favourite Food: Anything that contains fat.

Favourite Items: Jewelery of any kind, and rare stones.

Least Favourite Items: Weeds and Stones

Character Traits: Shy, Outgoing, Kind, Strong, Courageous, and Humble.

Pros: Beautiful, Amazing artist, has saved Red Riding Hood from the wolf countless times, is secretly the princess of the most powerful race in the world

Flaws: None~ She’s perfect!

Hobbies: Gardening, Scuba Diving with Whales and Sharks, Flying in her own aeroplane.

Dream Job: Supreme Queen of the Harvest Dreams world. [Shh! She’ll become that later~]

Hometown: All of them!

Extra Information: She’s immortal, and she’s lived for thouuusands of years but she never ages, because numbers don’t apply to her, and she can drive a car even though she’s sixteen.

She learnt how to fly a plane when she was five, with her uncle, who crashed the plane and they both died. But she’s immortal, so she came back to life and was so sad for weeks.

She realised she had power over animals when she was 12, and now she can summon any animal she wants.

She found out she could control all the elemental spirits at age 15, and is now a master over them.

Her brother killed the whole of her clan, and now she’s setting out for revenge.


Can you see what's wrong with this character? Nothing about her is beleivable, she's fabulous in every way which will always get annoying for other people. Don't ask why a put a Narutard joke in there.
PLEASE: AVOID THESE CHARACTERS! They are annoying to Roleplay with, will often automatically take control of the situation, and are just generally awful.

So, you're saying that she's one of those people who magically just save the day when there's a problem? And make it boring? =x

Yup.
Starting to feel like burning Luelle-Beauty-Diamond-Rose-Mina-Maxine yet? 8D
But of course, Luelle-Beauty-Diamond-Rose-Mina-Maxine is immortal, so there's no way out~

But nobody really hates the PERSON, just the character. Until the person makes such a big stink out of everything that everyone else starts to get annoyed. XD

I've seen many a member succumb to the world of Mary-Sues, it doesn't matter WHAT RPG website you're on. And there's always a reaction from the other members, a reaction I feel could easily be prevented.

Plus, it's BORING to roleplay with Mary-Sues... there's no room for character improvement, so there's really no point whatsoever in roleplaying with them, except for them to make a big deal about how perfect they are and/or for them to save the day.

Good analysis, Alissa. [Still getting used to your real name... MOWRU.]
I just hate how they automatically think every guy in the RP will fall for them. It's funny when they say stuff like "Okay, we can go on that date you've always wanted if you let me fly there on my dragon." and the boy's just cluelessly staring at her.

I've seen SOOO many events like that happen, and I laugh, I laugh so hard, for at least an hour, Mowru~

....... Did you just insult Naruto?

I hate two types of Characters; Mary sues and Gary Stus.


If I want to get red of Immortal Sues all I got to do is become a Gary Stu with the power to kill Immortal people >.>

I would just like to point out, that there are different types of Mary-Sues (Or Gary-Stus).

You just showed the 'Classic Sue'. Beware that there are very many different types of Sues.
They are everywhere.

Consider yourself warned. Wink

Hah hah, yes- it's been a long time since I've written this one. Way back, before I went AWOL. ;D
There is indeed a large variety of Mary-Sues and Gary-Stus, and the Sue defined here is indeed a very much exaggerated 'Classic' Sue.
If I had such authority, I would update and summarise different types of Sues and Stus; but sadly, I resigned my Moderatorship a while back, so I shall just leave this here. 8D

Revelling in Sue-ness.
But yes, you have raised an excellent point; this is but one of the many gag-worthy breeds of Sue around, and a dramatic version at that.
Thanks for pointing that out! ;D

Go ahead and edit it. Just because you aren't on staff anymore doesn't mean you don't know what you're talking about. ^_^ It is your article, after all. p.s. I love you
