No, that character is not a Mary Sue

Lots of incorrect Mary Sue talk in the Captain Marvel thread.

I also can't remember a movie thread going so off topic in the past. It probably did though.

Let's talk about fictional characters that you think are Mary Sues but actually aren't.


And I swear if you call Furiosa a Mary Sue I will ban you.

Rey from Star Wars is arguably the biggest Mary Sue in cinematic history. Change my mind.

Re: No, that character is not a Mary Sue

Closest we'll get in to a Mary Sue in GOT is Dany and I wouldn't even call her one.

Didn't see Hunger games ( my anger at it plagiarizing Battle Royale won't allow me to watch), but was J-law's character in that a mary sue?

Re: No, that character is not a Mary Sue

I'm sure someone will counter with the Chuck Norris jokes, but in seriousness, Cordell Walker HAS to be high up there.

Yeah, character is a martial arts enthusiast who was in Vietnam and a Texas Ranger, but literally resurrected a horse, has survived the world's deadliest scorpions on him in a desert after being discombobulated, Michael Phelps would be envious of his swimming feats. On land, he is a sharpshooter beyond world-class caliber, can kick through the windshield of a moving car with perfect timing and zero injury, even for a Ranger and former soldier has superhuman endurance despite being mortal and who knows what else are on his feat list.

Nah, Katniss isn't a Mary Sue at all. She has so many goddamn flaws. A Mary Sue doesn't earn any of her *or his* admiration and doesn't really have to prove his/her worth. This isn't Katniss at all.

She even has a morphine addiction if I recall correctly.




SHE WEARS STRENGTH AND DARKNESS EQUALLY WELL
THAT GIRL HAS ALWAYS BEEN HALF GODDESS HALF HELL

Re: No, that character is not a Mary Sue

I'm ok with suspending the requirement that a Mary Sue isn't the main protagonist just for the sake of us arguing.

I've read one of those Hunger Games novels, Katniss is not a Mary Sue. She's competent and that's ok. There is nothing wrong with a protagonist/hero being competent.

Dany in ASoIaF is certainly not a Mary Sue. She's a bit ridiculous at times in GoT, and maybe there is something here, but I'm going to say not a Mary Sue for now. There's a possible twist that has her being not very nice aka a villain. I'll concede it's kind of close. That scene where all those brown people deify her was one of the most embarrassing things I've ever seen in a TV show.

Re: No, that character is not a Mary Sue

I still can't believe I got MrMister to read The Hunger Games ..... EDIT: I didn't get Mr to read The Hunger Games... I got him to START The Hunger Games.... he finished it because it is a pretty damn good book when all is said and done.


I don't see Dany being a Mary Sue at all either. It's not like she's going out there and doing those things. She really wouldn't be able to do shit if it weren't for her dragons. She's pretty much 100 percent reliant on the dragons and she certainly has flaws.

I have to agree with Mr in so far as the scene he says is the most embarrassing scene ever filmed..... yep.... no goddamn doubt about that.

Re: No, that character is not a Mary Sue

Every Shounen main character ever. Because even their flaws will be made up by some stupidly insane power-up later on that make the flaw seem minor in comparison.
