Still doesn't make her one.
She doesn't actaully fuck peoples shit without getting fucked harder herself

>daughter of an emporer
Cool? How does that make HER strong, an army and money doesn't make HER strong personally

>stepdaughter of geralt and yen
okay? What is that supposed to do for her other than teach her to fight, it doesn't teach her to actually be powerful.

>has unique power that lets her travel between universe
Doesn't make her good, just the power the fast travel

>has unique power that lets her travel between universe
This helps your argument in literally no way

>half the game is about finding her even as you as the player aren't really invested in her character
I don't think you understand how to make arguments at this point

Now look at pic related, HE is a mary sue
>>
>>323290364
beeing mary sue doesn't necessary mean that the character is super strong (which is still true in ciris case).
It means that the whole plot revolves around her, that every important character is tied to her in some way or the other, and that she holds up modern day ideals in a medieval world
>>
>>323289410
She is actually kind of annoying in my opinion. Im playing W3 now and she is potrayed as literally perfect. Everyone treats her as a charming, talented, and powerful hero evewn though she hasnt done much.

Geralt does much more all while being a weaker, much older guy.

Nah, Jack was edge incarnate, not really mary sue.

Of course he's going to be overpowered as fuck, this is a video game which sort of demands that you win in the end.

Not to mention, Jack got repeatedly outskilled by Sam, and it's implied that Sam was more skilled in terms of swordfighting than Jack.

>>323290364
Raiden was literally intended to be an anti-Mary Sue though. He's a rookie who only has basic combat knowledge, can't keep a situation under control, acts dorky as fuck and he can't even hold a stable relationship. The whole time we wish we were playing as Snake, the game's actual Mary Sue.

Dante's appeal is sort of that he's a mary sue though.

He is pretty much designed to be a perfect awesome character that people love, which is why so many people hated the idea of a more flawed Dante in DmC

I wasn't opposed to the idea though, but I can see why people hated it.

How the fuck is he a mary sue if the FANS love him? He's awesome at fighting, yeah, and that's about it. Or what, are you saying that every character in existence is automatically a mary sue if they get enough fans?
I'm going to assume that you have absolutely no idea what the meaning of 'mary sue' is.
>>
>>323295862
>He's awesome at fighting, yeah, and that's about it.

Half demon half human cliche?
Handsome as fuck?
Complains about women while being surrounded by Lady and Trish?
Can basically beat anything if he gets serious enough?
Always has a cool attitude and never shows any self-esteem issues or lack of confidence?

I like Dante but face it, he's a fucking Mary Sue.

From TV tropes
>She's exotically beautiful, often having an unusual hair or eye color, and has a similarly cool and exotic name. She's exceptionally talented in an implausibly wide variety of areas, and may possess skills that are rare or nonexistent in the canon setting. She also lacks any realistic, or at least story-relevant, character flaws — either that or her "flaws" are obviously meant to be endearing.

>Exotically beautiful
Ciri has inexplicable white ("ashen") hair and is incredibly beautiful

>Exotic name
Cirilla doesn't sound too exotic in the context of the world

>Incredibly talented in an implausibly wide variety of areas
She has godlike fighting powers, is a great rider, is decent(?) witcher... we don't really get to see any more of her skills.

>Lacks realistic, or at least story relevant character flaws - or flaws are meant to be endearing
Her "flaws" include
>being impatient at times
Literally what else?


I don't think Ciri falls under the general Mary Sue, but she is an incredibly boring character in the game, mainly due to her godlike powers and her obvious lack of character flaws. She even had a "I'm so powerful that I can't even control it" scene during the siege of Kaer Morhen, and it's awkward how everyone wants to protect her when she is the strongest character in the game and, as is evident from the gameplay even on hardest difficulty, absolutely slaughters everyone all the time with almost 0 challenge.
>>
>>323297735
>white hair

Why does she have white hair? Just so she can be more like Geralt? I mean, there's a good reason why Geralt's hair is white (extra mutations, if I remember correctly), but what about Ciri?

>>323298024
The game should stand on its own. I'll bet not even 5% of the playerbase has every read a single page of the books.

The game portrays her as an overpowered boring character. That's the argument.
>>
>>323298126
You don't meet anyone else in the world with white hair outside of old people
>>
>>323298325
But all characters even though this game is not canon have the same backstories, in which ciri is no mary sue. Therefore she is no mary sue. And by the way even in the games she loses sometimes.

Again, name one video game character who CAN'T beat anything in their own world once they get strong or serious enough.

So being able to stay cool means you're a mary sue now? Guess that makes pretty much every MC in every single FPS a mary sue.

>>323295480
The problem wasn't that Donte was more flawed; it was that he was a lot more tryhard and less fun. He spent most of his time acting like a dipshit when Dante would have spouted some cheesy one-liner and kicked ass.

But you're right, Dante's appeal is that he's first and foremost designed to be fun to watch and play as. That sort of ridiculous character is something that usually only works in vidya and 80s action movies. If you tried to make a serious drama out of DMC instead of the two-ish serious scenes it allows itself, it wouldn't work.

True for every game except 3, but Dante's character matches the gameplay well. He's cool, over the top, and is totally relaxed as he slaughters his way through demon after demon. That shit was inexcusable in DMC 2 though.
>>
>>323301932

A mary sue is like the dragonborn or chosen one trope except the character is perfect in every way for no logical reason even inside the universe's logic.

Raiden gets fucking shat on WAY too much to be a Mary Sue. He's practically a butt monkey.

>>323294995
Now this, this is a Mary Sue.

>>323295257
As much as I kinda hate to admit it, Dante sort of is a Mary Sue outside of the third game at least.

Actually, is he even Sue-ish in the fourth game as well? People at least treat him as the asshole he sort is at first. Sure turns out the Order of the Sword were the bad guys, but he does kinda bust in and start killing people, some of whom probably had no clue what Sanctus was up to.

Why is being a Mary Sue a bad thing though

>>323299471
It's funny, b/c Rey actually is pretty much a Mary Sue. I love how feminists constantly bitch and complain about Mary Sue women in media, then when they watch TFA and see Rey, they praise her.

Like, look at Finn. Retarded bitching from neckbeards about the new SW having a black male and a female protagonist aside, even a lot of detractors were okay with Finn once they saw the movie and found that, if anything, he was actually a great character. Rey on the other hand, basically does no wrong, knows everything, and even gets to defeat the bad guy at the end. It's bullshit.

I'd say if I can come up with a list of times that it has been done before to the point that it fits into it's own category, then it is "overused" and "betrays a lack of thought". How else can a show something to be cliche without pointing out the times that it has been done before?

Generally it's not good to right a character who's a Mary Sue. You want your character to not be perfect, have flaws, and be relatable, so they can be complex, with a lot of depth.

But there's nothing inherently bad about a character being a Mary Sue though. Dante is pretty Mary Sue-ish outside of being kind of a jerkass but he works because he's just so entertaining to watch as he does cool shit and drop one-liners. That's fine and the creators don't even remotely pretend he's some super deep character.

Okay is mary sue anyone that has a degree of power?

I feel as though you people just see a powerful character and shout Mary Sue

I can see why you would think Ciri is a mary sue, but she has a plethora of flaws and is easily manipulated by most the people in her life. If shes a mary sue then Geralt "is the strongest fighter in the wolf fighting academy, fucks nothing but hot sorceresses that just fall on his dick, meets every king known to man, use to ride with the wild hunt" Rivia is a mary sue because he obviously has a lot going for him

>>323304551
shes the main character, why is it bullshit that she defeats the bad guy at the end?

Geralt confirmed mary sue because he killed eredin

Obi wan confirmed mary sue because he killed maul
They are the heroes of their respective series or in Elizabeth's case in infinite, is the centerpoint of the plot so of course things are going to revolve around her, even though there is multiple sections revolving around booker and his past/choices.

A mary sue would be Vivienne from DAI, if anything.
She is completely charming, always has the right thing to say, is never sussed by anyone in the entire game, strongest mage in Orlais, is good at everything she does

Seriously if you see her and Blackwall banter, she literally never loses.

>shes the main character, why is it bullshit that she defeats the bad guy at the end?
Rey is a bit OP, but I see more issue when everything that can be said about her is equally applicable to another character and nobody bats an eye.

Its absolutely fair that Rey is not as well written as Luke was. But this massive backlash is very blatantly more to do with the fact that she's a typical male character who happens to have tits. MRAs find this problematic.

Again, the real issue is writing in Hollywood going downhill and maybe a dash of spectacle creep in her own franchise. Not her tits doing backflips without earning it.

She's a blank player insert character. Might as well call Link and Master Chief Mary Sues by your logic.
>>
>>323305618
I'd say it has expanded to apply to any work, as a character doesn't have to be an author self-insert to be a Mary Sue, after all. Just look at Kirito from SAO, for example.
>>
>>323307541
dude everyones logic of mary sue in this thread is fucked up.

>powerful girl = mary sue
>defeats bad guy= mary sue
>is a hero in a story about a hero = mary sue

just like autism, halfswording, cuck, etc. /v/ has absolutely no idea what something means but runs its incorrect meaning into the ground.

>>323307914
This post was written by a Mary Sue. Don't listen to its lies.
>>
"A Mary Sue or Gary Stu or Marty Stu is an idealized fictional character, a young or low-rank person who saves the day through unrealistic abilities. Often this character is recognized as an author insert and/or wish-fulfillment"
most characters listed are idealized and have unrealistic abilities, why do ppl get so anal about the definition?

>Breaking News: Video game characters tend to be Mary Sue because of their nature as player inserts and power fantasies at the same time. This hasn't been a problem until Current Year. Now we must revolt.
>>
>>323308124
Because, as you said yourself, you can twist the definition to describe any character you want to dismiss as a Mary Sue. The entire concept is fallacious if it's used outside of describing blatant self-insert characters you see in bad works of fiction.

>shes the main character, why is it bullshit that she defeats the bad guy at the end?

>uses the force to control a stormtrooper, succeeds after the second try
>defeats a nearly trained Sith
>all with NO FUCKING TRAINING WHATSOEVER
>wrecks Kylo without ever having held a lightsaber before

The force was a "legend" or a myth before this movie, and I'm expected to believe that Mary Sue knew how to perfectly execute Jedi mind tricks and force pull a lightsaber? Fucking horseshit.

>>323308443
>>323308313
the point of discussiong is people generally want better written characters who dont resemble mary sues to them.

Kylo Ren had way more training dude.

That in addition to everythign else she did in that movie.

>able to competently fly the M. Falcon despite having no flying experience prior

Fuck that shit.

>>323308614
Also,
>knows more about the Millennium Falcon than Han motherfucking Solo despite never having flown it
>>
>>323303120
She was a princess of Cintra you dumb fuck, she was also taught by Nenneke and Yennefer.

>Kylo Ren had way more training dude.
Hey can you link me to a clip where he trained to perform well with a hole in his gut?

>able to competently fly the M. Falcon despite having no flying experience prior

>Complely missing that Rey had flight training from her simulator at home because lies are an easier argument to make.

not that retard you responded originally and I cant for the love of Christ understand from yours and his post what's your point.

Anyway, since /tv/ learned a new word:"Mary Sue" for that lightsaber wielding vagina in new Star Wars Seven, I have a feels we will see this
word:"Mary Sue" a lot on 4chan(at least on boards that deal with pop media :movies,comics,cartoons and games) , so lets at least put some effort into knowing what are we talking about:
"A Mary Sue or Gary Stu or Marty Stu is an idealized fictional character, a young or low-rank person who saves the day through unrealistic abilities. Often this character is recognized as an author insert and/or wish-fulfillment."


So, as far as Ciri goes, she was born into most powerful family on continent and as such , she probably did had access to better instruction and scholars than most of the people, on top of that she was trained by one of the best group of Witchers and a Sorceress , on top of that, she is not pure-blooded and has some inane abilities, but on the other hand, she is childish at the moments, naive, headstrong, smart-ass.

She has some aspects of "Mary Sue" but she does makes mistakes and she is not shoehorned into the book just like that, she is actually an
center of everything, sorceress are drawn to her like moths to fire, because she is like a walking Point of Power, she is what everything revolves from, she is not put on page 123 to save the day, if anything woe to the village she passed thru.

With all that being said, i honestly dont know, as far as the books go, she is story drive device and is important part of the universe,
but even if people take just vidya Ciri into account, she leaves a trail of dead, innocent people behind her.

I was too lazy to come up with a proper response but just look at >>323308614 and >>323308859

Also a flight simulator does not equate to genuine flight experience. Any pilot can tell you that.
>>
>>323294921
yes, but that does not mean he is mentally on the level of 25 y/o.
There is some hidden wisdom and gray scale of thinking behind him only accustomed to older, wiser people.
Just because he is in a body of a ~30-40 y/o doesn't have anything to do with his maturity.
Also, fact that he survived to be an 100 years old in that world is a statement for itself.
(but, if you read the books, you would know he did die before he hit 110 yo)
>>
>>323305015
But he isn't by any definition of the word
>>
>>323307541

You can be a blank slate without being a Mary Sue

Not everyone needs to be like the P3MC who is literally Jesus.
>>
>>323305015
>powers run in the family
>have a shitload of drawbacks
>not liked by his court
>even his marriage was a sham
How is he a Mary Sue?

>>323302192
1 - you have to see gameplay as part of the narrative. if you alone take down an army of enemies then that must be canon for that character
2 - cutscenes and story is still forced on you so traditional story tropes still apply

>>323303616
He was always progressive I think, at least tolerating the alliance and stuff. If they didn't have Garrosh take over as war chief in Cata, the only path the story could take would be full on alliance between horde and alliance.

>a phrase or opinion that is overused
>Implying the half demon and half human thing is overused
Please, do post the amount of characters in video games that are like Dante. No, seriously, do that.
