  • hello! i really enjoyed this quiz, i think the questions were well thought out and inclusive. something that bugs me the most about these kind of character quizzes is the lack of options that apply to my characters. i got a 13%, yay! however i feel the need to point out that while everyone wants to avoid creating a mary-sue, you should have a healthy balance of unique/interesting characteristics as well as bland ones. you may be so hellbent on avoiding making a mary-sue that you create a completely boring and dull oc. balance is key! a super low score may not be a good thing :)

    • Haha... yikes I got 0%. It's an OC for animations. But basically she was abused by her alcoholic father and ended up being saved by child protective services. Once she was safe, she ran and went homeless with her cat so as not to be adopted or put in the foster system. (She also has bandaged around her eyes from when her father had a... rather nasty attack with a glass bottle) she ends up meeting a boy who's a little cynical but still pretty cool. They become friends to the point that she opens up to him and he allows her to stay at his house as much as possible (his mom doesn't really know too much about the situation... yet) She sleeps on the couch some nights and they are very good friends. Personality wise she's still really optimistic and bright, because she thinks that talking about sad things doesn't help anyone. She doesn't have a lot of friends at school because she won't take their pity. (She also has a passion for cooking!) I hope for a 0% Mary Sue that's still an interesting character?

    • I got a magic dude who basically if he dies, the worlds gonna fall apart, allowing the villain to rule over and act like a "good guy"... Did I also mention that he's got the power to control any living being or magic that's known as "puppeting"? He's also one of the last of his species since the Olpade's (humans) don't like magic. Did I forget to mention that he almost always wins fights, (mostly since he can just make the opponent stop)? I got a 0% Mary Sue. He does die though, so that might be it...

  • My character is an MHA oc but his powers being overpowered is actually a somewhat struggle for him and it's because he is a failed Nomu. He has 5 quirks at the beginning but he slowly loses one and the remaining ones all have limits or can do him in. He struggles to make deeper connection or recognize the ones he has made. He slowly finds out about how he became a Nomu and that AFO isn't the worst person he's ever met. He has to learn morality and what it means to be a hero because he never did. But I like the mystery slowly unveiling and the little hints left for my readers in "Failure to Hero?" On wattpad

  • Had a lot of fun and got an 11% my character is an X-Men oc named Roxanna Darkholme and her powers are night vision, cellular regeneration, anti aging, scaly wings, and horns. her parents are Mystique and Azazel though, so the powers aren't too far fetched. Mystique went back and forth between the German forest where roxanna was left and America to see her girlfriend Irene. This continues until Irene dies of cancer and asks her to retaliate the humans who discriminated against them by training some young mutants. She left Roxanna in the forest at the age of 7 or so because she didn't want anyone to know she was having an affair with Azazel. There she began to hunt after the food Mystique had left her ran out. After a while she begins to explore more and more of Germany and ends up near the village that contains the church that her (unbeknownst to her) brother Nightcrawler lives in. Thanks for reading this far

  • I tried testing some of my characters, and I find it interesting that the first ones I ever created years ago got a higher score (20-40%) than my most recent ones (5-15%). I don't know if that's necessarily a good thing, and it could also be because my older OCs are in a universe where magic exists, meanwhile my newer OCs exist in a place with medieval settings where the closest thing to magic is "alchemy" (that is basically mixing plants together to create poisons and healing substances). Aside from this, it was an interesting quiz and I really enjoyed it!

  • I just tested both my main characters - one based off my younger sibling, and one based off myself. Ofc the one based off me had a higher Marty Stu rating (13%), but that's because I'd like to look like them. The other one only had 6% - the sword/dagger in a technological age is plot relevant, as they're gifts from their mentor bc young teens want weapons, and they each eventually end up carrying supernatural charms - pendants relating to the gods of light and shadow.

  • I got a 4% my character Lukas Vincent(Vinny) Carmen is a 13-17 year old kid who made a deal with a old god and is now like the ruler of where dead kids go. Anyways hes kinda insane and leaves his work to his serious and no nonsense bff Monika and hes really not the best ruler kinda making like miserable for everyone which doesnt like him and life splinded for his friends. He likes partying and fighting so hes not really in charge of ruling and is instead a puppet ruler while Monika, #3, Araceli, do the work for him.

  • There are some things I want to clarify. What I meant that there are some things that contradict her character is about her personality. Like how she's seen as lazy but she has a lot of imaginations ,just too burnt out to do so. Another thing is that the main villain IS her love interest, which they learn when it was almost too late. They never had interacted or gotten physically close due to a curse preventing them to, and in the end she wasn't able to cute him of it and the villain awakens and they all die. The end.

  • Hiya everyone!! I got a 7% one, my character takes after a song rather than my own imagination, half of his face ripped off and covered by a mask, black large (8ft 400 lbs stealthy) man to be specific, and uses an axe and shotgun, glad hes not a mary sue, he just takes after the song "Piggy pie (old school" from ICP- - Anaphoric (my marking)

  • This was a really good quiz! My character is an elf girl called Willow who, along with her friend Elfrieda, used to be humans but then became elves once they got stranded in a world called Mirrania. I was worried that Willow was a Mary Sue because she has a really rare power called Magecraft, but Ive divvied out stuff like that, because theres another girl who is the Chosen Windwalker, and a girl with a talent for weaponry, and luckily she only got 15%. Phew!

  • My oc is kinda an enigma between life and death. Im currently working on a game based on it (Its name is Cardinal) and they live in a highly traditional religious town. Theyre named cardinal because back in my homey town people believed that a cardinal was a sign someone from the dead was coming to see you.

  • Because my character is basically a version of me or I could say that she's not actually a character, rather a character I use it's name for roleplaying and stuff.

    But this character of mine has no emotions, just a puppet created with no purpose and can be played and toyed with however the author (aka me) wants. Cringe? I don't think so, it's a realm of mine >w

  • I got a 15%. Pretty happy about that. My character is a mentally unstable, eating disorder, emotionally paranoid and constant delusions, that also has a horrible childhood. His childhood where he was abducted, kidnapped. And used for political purposes. So yeah. The 15% is prolly the fact hes a vampire, he gets some sort of arc where the people who hated him, used him for their political reasons, and people who felt indifferent towards him end up becoming obsessed with him. Idk. Im not going to finish this story, but yeah.

  • Got 27% on a selfsona who literally is just me, but to be fair i am Extroverted and have a s--- ton of hobbies and i believe that you're oc is already good / close to perfect if the score is between the 10-40% range, since a super low score, unless for non fantasy or fiction settings, means your oc is pretty boring or anti sue ish

  • Got a 6% on my character Jeremiah (Jeers), He's 51 but looks and acts like he's 35 because of the nature of his species. He lost his family in his teens right after his body got exposed to the chemical that changed him from human to another species. He served in the Military for most of his life as both an agent and a tech, eventually marrying his husband Oliver then retiring/getting kicked out (for being gay) to take care of a friends kid after her parents die in action. He has a whole host of mental issues from Eating disorders to suicidal thoughts (all handled with accuracy and care) from both his childhood trauma and his service. He's grumpy but it's hard to actually piss him off and is extremely protective of his family. He has the ability to effect a persons brain chemicals which mean he can force peoples emotions and cause pain response and things like that. If your still reading this thanks for reading, I've become inspired by a lot of these comments so I thought I'd add my own.

  • 10%

    Mine is a girl who has one cool power- fire manip (Kinda overused) where magic is all but illegal. She's fairly athletic and is good with a sword (Medieval Europe-type setting). What do yall think? I know I have a quiz, but I'd like to hear y'all's opinion.

  • I really liked this quiz! My oc is apparently 15% Mary Sue, shes the main character in a GLMM. Makes sense because she is not perfect but there are definitely some Mary Sue aspects in her characteristics and lore. I really enjoyed this! <3

  • this quiz was fun hehe

    my first character got a 1%, they're part of a group of teens who are immune to a plague overtaking the world(im writing the story with my friends, each of us writes for each of the characters, its like diary entries), and they've been given the responsibility of looking around the U.S.(all the countries kinda just left each other to fend for themselves) and following instructions from a doctor to find the cure and save a lot of people.

    my other oc got 12%, she's part of a race of creatures who devote their lives to protecting this thing(im not done with the story, so I dont completely know what the thing is yet) that represents life forces and the magic of life? anyways

    they have this legend that there'll be one of them born with a star tattoo on their cheek(the rest of them have the star with a diamond around it), and they'll be the one who protects the life force thingy. but theres this guy who didnt agree with the ways of his people, and he decided "i dont wanna live alongside life and nature and stuff! we should be able to control it!" and he gathers supporters, and he starts using the powers these people have for bad(stealing other peoples life forces, terrorizing people, yadayada) instead of good. so basically her mom was part of an organization that was agaisnt this guy and his organization, and when she gave birth to the main character and she had the star on her cheek, she immediately put her up for adoption in the human world. okay, so, the mc(her names Salem btw) lives until she's 16 with her adopted mother, and then she goes to this summer camp. the summer camp was built on top of where her people live(they live underground), and the main camp building is an old castle from way back when her people didnt live underground. so yea the main love interest for Salem goes to this camp, but Mae(thats the love interest) is part of the organization that Salem's mom was in, and recognizes her. Mae is also pretending to be part of the evil

  • 12! Aha ! I have this character since I was 11year old, and if I've done this quizz back then it will surely be more that 50! My character is an android, name Yurice. She doesn't have power except she doesn't die from old age but she can be 14 to 20, yeah that's weard but she's not a fully android and deacise, but she can be killed! She date the character of my best friend, sayonnor, we created many au for our ocs, one were they were royalty, one were they were animals, ect. The villan is a guy, an humain, who were the BFF of my character and love her and tries to kill the oc of my bff many times XD he's not dead yet but he kinda stop being the vilan. They have a child, a girl, that they adopted because well they two girls! This child is 5, her name is Chara, she also a demon. But the end isn't really happy cause she, Chara, have to leave her mother to go help the demon world, so they haven't seen her in a while, but Chara, after helping the demon wold, she tries finding hers mothers but she kept being in the wrong universe, in other au.

  • I did this quiz, and here's what I got for my two finalized OC'S!

    Annalise:1% however, I think that's because my character couldn't be described properly

    Clemont: 9% he was described a lot better than Annalise :)

  • my character is actually a version of me. if anyone here knows about shifting, then i think youll understand when i say shes my dr self (for an anime (Jujutsu Kaisen)) and shes a reincarnate of a dragon god and shes super op as well, only got 33% though, but i feel like its more than that LMAO

  • I wish there was an option for very thin because of an ED because my character has one but the their just really skinny doesn't apply :/

  • I got 13% :D I really thought my character was a Mary Sue at first but Im not sure now, Ill take more quizzes to see but Im glad to know he isnt here :]

  • I got 13%! Hooray! I never want my main characters to be a Mary Sue, and if anyone were to call them that, I'd have to go back and edit the entire book...
