A Mary Sue or, in case of a male, Gary Stu or Marty Stu is an idealized fictional character, a young or low-rank person who saves the day through extraordinary abilities. This character is recognized as an author insert and/or wish-fulfillment

You mean him playing video games in a world where numbers are all that matter? Pretty fucking extraordinary, doing tricks anyone else could do.

He's not special in any other way than circumstance.

And how do you intend to prove Kirito is somehow the author's self-insert? He's pretty much said he doesn't really like to put himself in the protagonist's shoes.

>Only time he's beat is when the vreator straight up cheats
The only time he wins against anyone who's not just fodder, is when he has help.

People like to bring up how he couldn't win against Heathcliff because he cheated in the first fight, but he didn't cheat in their second fight, and he was still beating Kirito around, and would have won if Asuna didn't interfere.

He couldn't win against Death Gun without Sinon there to support him, and when he went to fight Shinkawa in the real world, he pretty much got knocked out in one punch, and probably would have died if Shino didn't save him.

Then there's the whole 4th arc of SAO, where he has a ton of near-death encounters that he only survives because of Eugeo, and can't win a single fight on his own, and ultimately loses a couple.


The "he never loses" argument, only works if you exclude the times he does almost lose, and only wins because he's fighting two+ on one in most of his fights.

Being a Mary Sue would have been fine though if it weren't for the fact that every single fucking character in the show with any power gives him even more advantages for no good reason. If he got through it all and won on the basis of just being better than the rest then that's fine, but he's literally being given every fucking advantage and then we are expected to think he won because of his own merits.

Wrong, though not completely. To understand what a Gary Stu/Mary Sue is, you have to go back to their roots in the world of fanfiction.

Back then, these characters would be introduced into well-established worlds such as those in literature or videogames. The easiest way of figuring out a given character was a GS was when, introduced into one of these worlds, would cause such worlds to warp around him just to give him the spotlight, breaking a set of official or unofficial rules from that world.

For example: it is more or less canon that a given set of characters in fighting games are the most powerful (think Ryu and M. Bison in Street Fighter). The GS, when introduced in these works as an original character created by the author of this fanfiction, would then defeat them in a fair fight. Sometimes, and most egregiously, without breaking a sweat.

This is just the easiest example I can give, where GS will break most noticeable rules such as power levels. However, the GS will generally go way beyond that. It is not just power levels, but the flow of the plot and even character interactions. A GS put into Lord of the Rings is likely to supplant an important role in the story (replacing Gandalf as the wise guy in the group, or becoming King of Gondor, or taking the ring from Frodo to take it to Mount Doom himself). He is also likely to cause abnormal behavioural changes among the characters (Arwen or Eowyn may fall in love with him, Aragorn may become jealous of him, etc...).

As you correctly pointed out, this is usually because the GS is an author self-insert. The story will be tailored to suit the character, when it should be viceversa.
>>
So is there a season 3 coming or what?
>>
>>135088853
>the MMORPG wasn't done right"
because it fucking wasn't.
there are no gary stus or chosen ones in an MMO because everyone who isn't will bitch about how unbalanced the game is and quit ( especially because if you have randomly overpowered players, you have to balance the game around that and now everyone who isn't overpowered is even more at a disadvantage). The game wouldn't have even survived the beta.
SAOs writer needs to learn how to into basic game design before writing a story about a game.

A character can be self-insertbait without being a Mary Sue/Gary Stu.

How does this apply outside of the world of fanfiction, though?

Well, as you said, the GS is an author self-insert, and the same indicators of Sueness can be found in original works just as much as in fanfiction as long as the GS is a stand-in for the author. Again: the rules of the world are warped to suit the GS, as opposed to the GS having to submit to a sensible set of rules and work through/around them.

Easy example: there are anime where it is established that only girls may use the macguffin the plot revolves around. Guess who the only exception is? Guess who is going to attend the girls-only academy where one learns how to handle the macguffin, even though he is male and, let´s think about this for a bit, acommodating him in the scheme is a pain in the ass, statistically irrelevant, and perhaps outright dangerous in several ways (not saying he is a rapist, but this event usually results or should result in some sort of political or social upheaval)?

The main sin commited by GS and the authors that create them is that the rules of the setting are broken to acommodate this special snowflake. This is done to make the character more interesting and special. This may be possible, but the cost of this is making the setting and the other characters less relevant. It is worth noting that most people who enjoy this sort of garbage don´t give a damn about the GS. It is the secondary characters they like the most, and many rage at these characters being robbed of the spotlight they deserve by not being as unbearably bland as the GS (note: if your self-insert is bland and uninteresting as fuck, what does that say about you? ).

I watched it recently and I kinda liked the beginning. First arc was okayish overall. I don't understand why gary stu's cannot be enjoyed, Mahouka is treated as "fun" memeshow but for some reason sao gets always the shit. I think it's just disappointment on how pretty neat first episodes turned into utter shit, and a counter reaction for the popularity it got. It's just pretty average when it comes to anime, if you're seriously treating sao as the worst anime ever you are just memeposting.

Oh, I agree with you completely.

In fact, Kirito is by far the worst and most genuine Gary Stu I have ever come across. Then again, I don´t watch that much anime, so that should not be a surprise.

Just saying: Kirito is a Gary Stu, but Gary Stu does not mean what the guy I quoted think it does. It goes deeper than what he said, and points straight at what makes Gary Stus so fucking disgusting: any world they enter and any character they interact with... they ruin.

Gary Stus destroy settings and assassinate characters a thousand times more interesting than they are, just so the self-inserting author can stroke his ego.

When I come across a Gary Stu, I feel like one of those people that adopt children to get them away from their abusive parents. The children being the settings and secondary characters, and the abusive parents being the Gary Stu and the author.

Why does /a/ hate Kirito so much?

He's not a whiny beta, he's strategic and smart, he only cries at genuinely upsetting moments, and he stays true to his girlfriend over all the other sluts that come his way.

That is precisely the problem: he is too fucking perfect, and the world conspires to keep him that way. Take one of those characteristics you mentioned, make it negative, make it so the world reacts believably to that, and you´ll have a better character.

If Kirito was a whiny beta, but still showed he was capable and loyal, he would have friends trying to help him out when they realized there was something valuable under his beta facade.

If he was not smart... he would be like one of the many "bro" characters we already have, except in the position of MC, which might be interesting to explore.

If he cried way more than he does... he might be comparable to Kenshiro: a very sensitive character, though that would not stop him from being a hero (in fact, it may make him more of one).

If he cheated on his girlfriend, he would be a dipshit, and you could expect the world to see this and react appropriately, like with Makoto in School Days, which had a hilarious ending.


Any of these is more interesting than a fucking perfect asshole that cannot evolve or go anywhere as a character.

>>135091804
That's totally bullshit and you know it. Your way of classifying major conflict is twisted, for example "power of love" never does anything to save him, in entire ggo Sinon's only saving role is to lay covering fire which is a really shitty excuse for major confrontation. I somewhat agree on alo though. Aside that, every "help" he has received has never been showcased as a weakness, but rather characters going "you are such a cool guy I'll do this for you". Only time it was explicitly showcased he required help was when asuna saved her while he was paralyzed. And even in the rosario he arrives to save the party at some point.

These are not only features that make him a shit character, but definitely a part of it and claiming otherwise is straightforwardly delusional.

But he was engineered. Kirito is just a normal human bean.

It's really amusing that SAO gets a lot of bashing but Somethingmonogatari watchamacallit series doesn't. Guess that's hipster power for you.

I watch monogatari for the fanservice
>>
>>135092717
Because the series are nothing alike?
>>
>>135092717
I wouldn't call sao and monogatari comparable, and monogatari also has its fair share of bashing. Monogatari holds a stable quality (whether you consider series good or not) and has no filler to speak of. Even the setting and arguably overpowered mc is often played for laughs, clearly deviating from sao. Frankly I don't know what features of the series you'd even consider that comparable as they are totally different in plot, production and intention. Naturally sao gets more bashing as it has more details that are not well executed. The fact you don't know what to call monogatari raises a question whether you even watched both series before trying to create a comparison. I don't understand why you'd call series "hipster" as it seems majority of series fanbase is mal-crowd that thinks the series is "deep".

>>135092717
They're both shit really. Though I've only had the misfortune to watch SAO so I don't want to waste my time to prove that other show is shit also.

>>135092204
Except Overlord isn't even an MMO story. It literally has more in common with D&D than it does any MMO.
>>
>>135092717
I never understood the praise Monogatari gets.
It has a nice story and interesting visuals, but its a lot of people's favorite anime and I don't understand why.
>>
>>135092984
Do I really have to wade my way through garbage when I've lurked enough to tell it is shit just like the Fate series.
>>
>>135089746
Perfect MCs with no flaws are boring. And Kirito is especially lame because of how moronic the universe has to become in order for him to remain the smartest, bestest person ever. With A/Z it was more like everyone just became stupid whenever Inaho or Slaine was around in order for them to look good. With Kirito it's like the entire universe he lives in is warped in order for him to look cool, no matter how absurd or idiotic the result is.

>>135093032
I'd say you are required to actually watch the show you are criticizing to seem at least borderline believable, yes.
>>
>>135093027
It's pretty and "deep" enough
>>
>>135093032
You're nothing but a bandwagon hater, all your opinions are formed based on whatever is popular at the moment. So no. Your opinion isn't worth anything since you haven't watched the shows you criticize.
>>
>>135092717
If you actually watched the latter then you'd realize you're retarded for comparing the two.
>>
>>135093027
>Nice story and interesting visuals
It's really unbelievable some people actually like things like story and visuals. What a bunch of faggots.
>>
>>135093078
I don't know, hearing the author has a NTR fetish multiple times and some artsy harem that wants to appear deeper than it really is does sound a lot like shit if you ask me.

Man, how to bait right here. Congrats anon, you got them hook line and sinker.

But I loved debating how shit of a show SAO is, problem is that it's just normie bait and the Nips have proven they have the worst of taste. It also helps that the author has clearly stated that what he writes is dictated by his editors.
>>
>>135093168
What? I like it too. But it isn't nearly the greatest of all time. Its good, but nothing special, yet its a lot of people's favorite anime. That's what I don't understand.
>>
>>135093027
For a lot of inexperienced viewers it is the first series they managed to sit through with that much dialogue in it. Combined with the really surreal imagery (especially in Bakemonogatari) they assume it's some kind of deep masterpiece of storytelling. In reality though, people like that would never have been able to get into it if it was actually a complicated and deep story.

Monogatari is popular because its conversations are captivating (partly due to the writing, partly due to the very talented seiyuu), it's girls are cute, and its visuals stylish. It's got mystery, humor, and of course fan service. Lots of different things to hook people. It's lots of things, but I would never call it deep. Almost everything in Monogatari is surface level and explicitly explained to through narration or dialogue.

Swort Art ONline games are quite fun, but the last season fighting animatio was horseshit.
>>
>>135093229
It appeals to many because it's artistically different. And storywise it's probably the only fantasy anime I'm capable of watching as I don't prefer fantasy. It has many positive features, but naturally they are fully subjective. Sadly I feel most of the love outside /a/ is because there is a lot of dialogue that makes it seem complex.

>>135092035
Normies hate this shit you faggot.

>>135093247
Many people simply confuse clever wordplay for DEEP.

As an wanto-to-be author, you, my dear anon, helped me a lot. Srly, i never heard about this "mary-sue" term, and now i'm full aware of its "dangerous" to the plot.

I would never guess that browsing a bait thread full of baited retards would end up on me learning things.

Enough of how its crap. Is there any reason a person SHOULD watch it? Any good points?

That's because Monogatari is a perfect circlejerk show for /a/

Didn't SAO get hate because people dickrode it? Or the the second half of the series revealing its true colors?
>>
>>135093768
Hammy rapey villains and great animation.

That's it. Its at the very best mindless easily digested trash or at the worst everything wrong AgK villains and MC is everything wrong with Yusei and Crow squared.
>>
>>135093768
Animation and OST are pretty good.
Kirito's character is actually entertainingly bad. The show goes so out of its way to fellate Kirito that its hilarious.
Girls are cute too.

Pssh, Kirito is lucky he never had to fight Rey.

Rey would go into the game, 1v1 him without any weapons, beat him up with her fists, then cuck him from Asuna, then solo Death Gun and Alicazation
>>
>>135094273
Too bad I can only remember 3 fights top with said animations in the first season.
>>
>>135084524
You clearly haven't read xianxia. The main characters in xianxia are the true Mary Sue. Kirito is an ant in their path. Every woman kneels to them, they become omnipotent beings, every one sucks their dicks. I mean I love every second of it, but you should expand your horizons before claiming anything.

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT PEOPLE STILL REPLY TO THESE THREADS WITHOUT SAGING
>>
>>135094501
Erza Scarlet can do the same thing.

Kirito is just Crow. He warps plot not fights.
>>
>>135094784
Because its fun to shitpost about SAO.

Kirito is the ideal MC. Even Goku and Naruto became him.

>>135088037
I have the odd feeling it'll give a jolt in some time. A disconnected internet gives some kinda grace period before shocks.
