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.

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.

Pony oc:
[x] is an alicorn
Total score: 50 points
OH COME ON! Why dies alicorn=Mary Sue?
For a different oc, I got two.
For my alicorn oc, I've tried to not make her a Mary Sue. I haven't posted her on deviant art yet, as she is a work in progress.
I want her to fly but also levitate a pencil
I seriously need to improve my oc.

Because Alicorns are gods, and only Celestia and Luna and whoever they favor enough would be worthy of the alicorn ranking

Oh crap I have to make my oc something... Um... I guess a unicorn then. She's pretty normal anyways.

Yeah, just go with that. You don't need to make her an alicorn.

I don't actually think that having a high score on this list would make your oc a mary-sue. It really depends on how you write your character. Or maybe I am just trying to kid myself into thinking that one of my OC's isn't a mary-sue.

You know, a lot of anime characters have a lot of stuff from this list.

OC: Scar
[x]  Their eyes are an unusual color

[x] This unusual eye color happens to be red
[x] They are telekinetic/pyrokinetic/etc
[x] Their parents are cruel, uncaring, abusive etc. (would orphan administrators count?)
[x] They never knew their parents
[x] They were abused/spoiled as a child (what about bullied?)
[x] They have lots of friends/no friends (Is there no way to avoid this choice?)
[x] They have an emotional disorder (But people with emotioal disorders are the ones we can empathize with, just not too overdone)
[x] They are very intelligent (Intelligent? What about smart, just not book smart?)
[x] They were born on an important date, such as New Year's Eve, Midsummers Night, The Winter Solstace etc.
[x] They are hiding from someone/something
[x] They are very mysterious/dark (But aren't all characters with tragic pasts usually dark or over-the-line chippy? IS a balance possible?)
[x] They are very patient (People tend to hate OCs that are just quick to lose their anger I guess, but like those that lose it at appropriate times)

Overall points: 13

Wow, I really didn't expect him to be balanced. I guess it's important to know that cliches aren't bad; they are bad when not used correctly. I guess I am good! :D

Oc Willow:
[x] Their eyes are an unusual color
[x] This unusual eye color happens to be red {{I guess it counts as unusual, but it's quite common within her species}}
[x] They can grow extra body parts/shapeshift {{again common within her species}}
[x] They are immortal [+10 points] {{once again common within her species, actually common within many species within her world...}}
[x] They have sixth sense/can mind-read/etc [+5 points] {{Does mind reading count if she & anyone else of her species can only do this with their current host?}}
[x] They have lost one/both of their parents {{I find this more for plot, unless it's used to get sympathy, but does it count if her species have parent like figures but don't have actual parents?}}
[x] They never knew their parents {{again I find this more for plot unless used for sympathy & again does it count if everyone of her species doesn't have actual parents but parent like figures?}}
[x] They look much younger/older than they really are. [+5 points] {{once again common within her species}}
[x] They are very intelligent {{Willow: I would like to consider myself to be... I mean who wants to be that idiot in the corner?}}
[x] They can summon spirits/demons/angels etc. {{I'm guessing shadows count? even though it's once again common within her species}}
[x] Some part of their body glows {{Her entire species eyes glow in their true forms & quite possibly other parts just depends, does that also count?}}
[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...
