Sorta back to the original topic, sure, maybe someone could be compared to having many of the traits liste, but there are no perfect humans. Calling someone a stereotype by claiming they have every one of those qualities is like...an insult to their humanity. I don't know.

I mean, there are no complete non-Sues, is how I look at it. Your character has to have something unique, even if its something subtle about them. You don't need to make them the most powerful or the prettiest or the smartest just to make them interesting.

I don't know what else to say other than stop your bickering, you sound like kindergarten kids on a soccer team.

REAL people as Mary Sues? I doubt it.

They certainly exist as characters and are imo, annoying as heck to all but their creators. But in real lifeÖ no, I donít think so. REAL people are far more complex than any Sue or character could ever be and it's hard to stick us in boxes like you would characters, unlike Sues, we are admonished for our mistakes and actually have personality faults which are not mysteriously and brutally explained away by their over zealous creators. Granted not every OC that comes along is a Mary Sue, and not every self-insert is one either but when I see one Iím sure to let people know.

I've also known people who create Sues use the arguement that they don't exist to spare themselves the embarrassment, not that anyone here is doing that, I've just seen it done. And some characters can have all the Mary Sue traits and not actually BE one. Suggestion run say, Spyro or Bianca through this: http://www.springhole.net/quizzes/marysue.htm and you'll see what I mean about someone coming across as a Sue.
