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

4.5 (long grey hair but theres a reason for it)

good. I managed to make my character look rather unsuspicous in an ocean of (in-canon) monsters , demons , pseudo-gods and weirdos

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

Originally, someone thought she was a Mary-Sue when I first made her (and was very rude when pointing it out).....but now I know she's not. Thank you so much for making this! :hug:

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.

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.

Is she blonde? +1
This shouldn't count. It should have more description, such as, "Is her hair a shiny golden blonde?"
My whole family is blonde. Many people are blonde.
I'm not counting it.
