to the anti-sue traits!

5. she`s in love with a character who doesn`t love her back -1

6. she`s weak mentaly or physicaly -1

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

Only in her forms and half of them sprout out through the back of her hips.

3. She`s not overweight although she doesn`t look after what she eats/ doesn`t exercise +1
She has a slim pair-shaped body and plays some sports, and does skating. Then again, whatever junk food she eats goes to her cleavage.

4. Is her bra size B< ? +1
Yes. C's, D's, DD's, and DDD's are actually natural. She's a D, by the way.

5. Does she belong to some kind of label? [ex. Punk, Goth, Lolita, Emo, Prep, etc.] +1
Just Japanese street fashion.

Excuse me but I have a question...what if the character is perhaps Pansexual? Does it still count?; Bisexual: Loves two genders and/or sexes. It counts as a Mary-sue trait...so what about ; Pansexual: Will Love everyone regardless of gender or sex?  In real life I am a Pansexual.....so does it count?

Also the Bra size...kinda pissed me off a little seeing as I have almost D cup breasts....but anyhow I actually Like this test and plan to use it when I make a character

also , i recommend more anti sue aspects ,like disability

My 1st OC got 9 points, yay~!
Although even if I did describe her in first chapter, I did not count points for that. Why? Because she's main character of the story, duh. And besides, it's from other person's point of view then.

The other OC from the same story got 8/11 because three things depend of situation - she doesn't always have red eyes (when she's hungry only, actually), she almost never has wings and despite the fact that most of the time she's very cheery, she can eventually get serious if pissed of.

So, yeah. That was fun.

My OC got a 9! I got a lot of hate before for it being too mary-sue like, so I changed it, but according to this it would only have got one point more. Ah well it's better now anyway. About the bisexual thing, most of the horrible mary-sue fantrolls I've seen go out of their way to only like the canon boys, when trolls are all kind of pansexual. I don't know

Oh gosh, I was thinking my character was a Mary-Sue, but she's an Anti-Sue. I got scared because my character becomes super powerful when she's angry/ Was abandon by her parents because she killed a lot of people as a baby and grew up in a prison full of thugs. I guess I need to add a trait or two.
