What are some good examples of Sues and Stus?

I know people keep talking about how Rey from TFA is one, but I mean from other stuff, like the retards from twilight.
>>

Twilight sucked, but they weren't Mary Sues.
Also its a romance for christs sake, even if they were so what

next time use a male actor and you'll be all set!

There are no good Mary Sues. Except maybe when....
Nope Mary Sue's are always extremely poor written self inserts and even in Kinder Garten I could write characters with more depth than that
>>
>>64589605

Alice from the Resident Evil movies is the biggest Mary Sue.
>>
>>64589605

Her character in Snow White and the Huntsman was a gigantic Mary Sue as well.
>>
The whole Revenant movie is an homage to Mary Sue.
>>
>>64589605
Bella is literally a Mary sure from what I've read about it. She is written to be exactly like the author, physical traits and all

Everything about this guy screamed "Gary Stu". He was simply the best at everything and always knew exactly what to do.

Bella had flaws. She was clumsy. Read the book, pleb.

>>64589605
Any capeshit movie

The most gigantic Gary Stu ever is Kvothe from the Name of the Wind (and sequels). No movie about him yet, gladfully.

Don't misunderstand me, the books have good stuff, but I doubt they would survive into a movie.

Bella is a Mary Sue. The definition of Mary Sue is a self-insert character that is "special" in some way.

Special can mean being overpowered in terms of in-universe abilities (Aragorn), not having noticeable character flaws (Rey), always having a solution to every problem (Hermione), or other characters being drawn to them for no other reason than because the plot needs to move forward (Bella).

I enjoyed the first Twilight, the others are shit.

>>64593231

how is aragorn overpowered
>>
>>64593629

Name one instance in the movies and/or books where he personally had trouble fighting anyone. He's a Numenorean, which is quite literally Tolkiens idea of a master race of humans, and for some reason he's the only one.

His only characer flaw is the fact that he doesn't want to recognize how great he is despite every other character sucking his dick.

He literally almost dies against a big dog.
>>
>>64593064
completely true. I'm a huge fan of the sequel (it's one of my favorite fantasy novels) but if i had to watch that character instead of seeing the world from his perspective i'd probably gouge my eyes out

If you go by Encyclopedia Dramaticas definition of a Mary Sue then Daenerys Targaryen is a textbook example. Not saying you're wrong, just wondering if she really is GRRMs inner soul coming out on paper.

Being clumsy-cute so that you show how vulnerable and quirky you are and the hot guy will come to help you is not a flaw.
Also, are you calling people plebs because they haven't read the Twilight books?

agreed
>>
>>64594523
if you need hard work and dedication to be good at what you do, then you are hardly a mary sue/gary stu.
>>
>>64594052
>and for some reason he's the only one.
Nah, all of the Dunedain have Numenorean blood.
>>
Brad Pitt's character from World War Z is the biggest Gary Sue from recent memory

Hello reddit
>>
>>64594392
TV Dany is a Mary Sue (along with TV Brienne) but book Dany isn't. She is consistently shown to be a shitty, inexperienced leader. Also GRRM's self inserts are Tyrion and Sam.
>>
>>64593064
When I hear "mary sue" Kvothe always comes to mid, I hope they never adapt the book; and I love the series too, the whole universe and events are great, but the main character hmmmm
>>
>>64589605

Mary Sue refers to a fanfiction character who does everything right and who all the heroes love. When people call Rey a Mary Sue, they're saying she feels like a self-insert character written by a Star Wars fan and that Episode VII feels like fanfiction. It's not a catch-all term for "overpowered character in a movie".
>>
>>64594392

I look at her as more of a voiced reaction to the circumstances that surround his career, both in writing and his old screenwriting days.

He puts out what he thinks is good, but gets hate for reasons he didn't forsee
>>
>>64592889
He was more of a homage to the skilled handyman archetype of 50's sci-fi movies, doesn't make him perfect. His daughter hated him for a long time.
