Thank :iconglitchyproductions: for this WAY MORE ACCURATE Mary/Gary Sue test, and by thank him, I don't mean hate him if your OC is a mary sue or Gary Stu. THAT IS YOUR FAULT!

This is just like one of those normal journal entry test where you put an x in the box near the question if it is true. remember, x = 1 point (or whatever amount of points it says that you must add). If your OC is a mary sue or gary stu, don't have some little hissy fit and point fingers at somebody but yourself. This test speaks the truth, and if you don't like the result, then I suggest you change some things about your OC. Have fun.

I knew a version of this that gave one point per statement rather than having a specific amount for some of them. Someone must have modified this to ridiculousness without changing the results. Seriously, just looking like a popular character gives you 5 points? That's WAY too much than it should be! With scores like those and the results staying the same, perfectly fine OCs will be classified as borderline/full Mary Sues or anti-sues. And it still has the nerve to say it speaks the truth?? It's just a test, not the absolute truth written on stone. Sure, it can mean some changes SHOULD be made but not obligatory.

Sorry dude, it ain't rigged and maybe looking like an already existing character might be a little stretch.

Would a protestic Limb counts as a medical condition?

numerous selection here seem to fit several canon characters from the show itself.
(ex: "They spoiled as a child" that is SO Diamond Tiara and/or Silver Spoon, and most likely Prince Blueblood)

All things considered..I wouldn't feel too bad if MY OC makes this list.

I don't recommend this version. The first one I knew was the same without specific points for some statements. That one with 5 points just for looking like a popular character pisses me off... With all the points increased without touching the results, many OCs that are perfectly fine will end up classified as Mary Sues or at least borderline. You should use the original one, where you add only one point per statement (I added the / as 0.5 in case a character fits a statement but not entirely). It has the same statements but without ridiculous amounts of points for stupid things. I can give you a blank version if you want.

Final Score :

RESULT :

 

< 05 :: Anti-Sue.

Your character may be a bit on the boring side. Of course, this does depend, but generally if they score that low, it wouldn't hurt to 'spice them up' a bit.

 

06-15 :: Balanced Character.

If your OC scored around here, then they are probably quite a well-balanced and interesting character.

 

16-25 :: Borderline Mary-Sue.

We have a problem. You need to tone your character down. They are most likely a

bit annoying to others, too.

 

> 26 :: Mary-Sue.

Please revise your character... right now.

Huge difference, don't you think?
