There needs to be more Gary Stu MCs like pick related. I'm sick of beta faggot MC that got popular because of Shinji.

Kirito-kun is just competent, not Gary Stu at all.
>>
>>135989717
He's the definition of Gary stu

>I'd rather have a shallow MC that's defined by le badassness than a properly characterized one with depth and relateability
>>
>>135989941
I dunno man. The ratio between dumb meatheads and crybabies is in the red.
>>
>>135989717
He's a literal Gary Stu in the most accurate use of the word. He's a perfect, can do no wrong author insert masturbatory character.
>>
>>135990227
>do no wrong
>blamed the whole time in SAO
Okay.

>>135989941
>>135989941
kirito had depth and relatability. He also had plot armor that most shounen MCs can only dream of

Kirito is a bad Gary Sue. Gary Sues should be more flashy, know it all show offs, like this mofo
>>
>>135990581
If there is one character that has even less of an personality than Kirito it is this guy.
>>
But Kirito IS beta. Literally every girl falls for him either because he was in a really convenient position to save them, or because he's nice. He's the author's self insert, and because the author is beta as fuck, the character is too. Everything is written so that Kirito never has to take the initiative or be on the offensive, every situation is framed for Kirito to show his nice guy righteousness.
>>
>>135990368
That was his only flaw.
>>
>>135990548
the whole sachi and black cat arc causing him to remain distant and untrusting toward other player was a legit character flaw that came back to bite to him in the ass a couple times throughout story.


His better character moments are overshadowed by his Deus ex Machina chosen one powers.
>>
>>135991250
So basicly he stays distant because he's afraid of hurting others again?
Is that what you are saying?
>>
>>135991118
giving no fucks about girls doesn't make him a beta.
>>
>>135991534
yea basically. I know that feeling personally so I was able to relate to him in that way
>>
But Kirito is a betamax, he just simply is a gary stu so the betamax part of him is ignored.

We don't need gary stus, because they can be betas, omegas, or alphas, but still be boring because deus ex machina every fucking time to make them be top 1 all the time.
Even their flaws are not really flaws. Like "oh he's not a gary stu because he's a loner" when the author obviously creams himself with the thought of edgy lone wolf archetypes.

We just need good MCs who aren't afraid of the world and don't make up shitty excuses to not make logical or normal choices in life.
>>
>>135991681
That's cool and but the problem is that there are plenty of times were he's shown to be sociable. He saves the loli, the pink haired girl, stays friends with Klein, gets a new black friend and falls in love with Asuna and plays family with Yui.
It could have been cool but that shit just happends and he's always rather competent and his "fears" aren't explored in-depth.
>>
>>135989754
You're the definition of delusional.

>>135990227
He's just a lucky POS that was given the ability to win by the bad guy, hell he basically died but the plot armor was too strong.
