results~</b>

less than 5 points- the anti-sue

your character is definetly an opposite of mary sue! It`s obvious that you`ve been trying to protect your character from suedom, but a few more good traits wouldn`t hurt.

5-15 points original character

congratulations! You`ve created an interesting, well-balanced original character! ^-^ you sure need a lot of skills to create such a great character, good job!

15-25 points boarding-sue

hmm... i can`t say your character is a mary-sue, but it`s really close to it! You should edit her a little to make her more realistic and interesting!

25-35 points the mary-sue

my oh my, we have a trouble! D: I understand that you tried to create a nice and interesting character that others would like, but you`ve overdone it. Remember, a character has to have flaws! If you don`t want to ruin your fanfiction, try to rework your character.

35< points the ultra-sue

OH MY GOD, NOT THAT! BURN IT! You`ve created a monster, my friend. Take a blank sheet and create another, more realistic character.
edit : okay. I`ve got some comments asking why did I put questions about charachter`s body build and friendship, etc. etc. Before you go "OMG DOES MY CHARACTER HAVING A FRIEND MAKE HER MAREY-SUEH?!? YOUR TEST SUCKZ! D<" or something close to it, please read this.

Okay. So, your character got one point at that section. Now go check the results. What do you get for one point? That`s right. The anti-sue. :) Each of these questions/points have weight only if you get many of them positive. One good trait doesn`t make your character a mary sue - only too many of them do. :) / end of edit

I feel accomplished.  Mine got a 6.  And two of the points were given out of POSSIBLE canon x oc later.  I'm just rolling with it so I don't know for certain.  >.>

Why is being bisexual a mary sue trait? I think it's a good thing to have ocs that aren't straight, because there is only representation of straight people in Naruto.
