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.

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.

Point Reduction ::

Take points off your OC's overall score if they fit any of the following

 

statements :: 0

 

[ ] They smoke.

[ ] They are an alcoholic.

[ ] They are addicted to drugs.

[ ] They have a short temper.

[ ] They do not care much about others.

[ ] They are relatively emotionless.

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?

There's a way to make a good god character. One, Make them have a normal personality. Two, Have their powers be... One purpose but is still as weak and mortal as the others. (You know like Raiden.) Three, Weaknesses and vulnerability. I think you get it... You get my opinions...

If any is wrong and flawed. Just let me know...

[x] They look quite a bit like a character from a popular anime/manga. [+5 points] {{this was just a coincidence, I only noticed she looked like him after I started watching the anime... does that still count?}} 
[x] They are hiding from someone/something {{many species in her world hide what they really are from humans & pose as humans to try & avoid getting dissected}}
[ ] They are possessed by an angel {{Willow: Pffft, then that's a very wicked angel haha}}

Overall points: 33 {{this is actually the only test that I've taken where her results were Mary Sue}}

Also I think some of these can be revised to pinpoint Mary Sues, such as the following reduction statements because these can be used by a Mary Sue to make them look "cooler": 
[ ] They smoke [tobacco] [& suffer the consequences] 
[ ] They are an alcoholic [& suffer the consequences, doesn't count if they only get a little tipsy] 
[ ] They are addicted to drugs [Heroin, Cocaine, LSD, etc] [& actually suffer the consequences] 

I also believe that some of these are more cliche then Mary Sue like; twins/siblings separated at birth & many of these can actually be played off well if done right, like having a bad past is fine & can be used for plot, if it's not just there to get sympathy from others... just saying...

Does it need to be checked if your character is a demon, in order to justify why they are in the demon world?
