Naruto-Fandom Specific Mary Sue / Gary Stu Test.

Disclamer: NO question on this test based off of one sole OC I have seen. It was not made to attack anyone.This test is based on the Mary Sue Litmus Test but modified to be Naruto fandom specific.

Question: What is a Gary Stu or a Mary Sue?

Answer: A Mary sue/ Gary stu in short terms is a character that is either too perfect, too cliche, too unoriginal, too unbelievable for the series, a self insertion or any combination of the these traits. They are not good and despised by the majortiy of readers. Anyone can make a Mary Sue since they are the easiest and most boring way of creating a fan character. With enough critique and feedback; almost ANY mary sue is redeemable if one is willing to change the character enough.

Question: Can you explain your terminology?

Answer: A Gary Stu is the male version of a character of this type of character. A Mary Sue is the female version of this type of character. OC stands for "Original Character" a character that a fan makes up for a franchise, so they are also called "Fan Characters." "Canon Characters" are characters that are official and exist in the actual manga; Naruto, Kakashi, Sasuke, Sakura, Ino, Shikamaru, Gaara, and Killer B are all examples. "Canon" means what occurs in the actual manga; so it can refer to characters personalities, the sequence of events, and what exists in the manga.

Question: Okay I understand what a Sue is now, but what is the point of making a test on them?

Since Mary Sue's are uncreative and usually not well received, writers and roleplayers don't want to have one and want to avoid making them. People take Mary-Sue test because they want to improve a character they think might be a sue but want to check or they are making sure their character doesn't come close to ever becoming a sue. If you will be upset that your character might be called a sue or refuse to change it or argue if they are called a sue they you really shouldn't be taking sue test in the first place.

Question: How do I take this Test?

Answer: Read every question on the test. If statement is true for your character or the answer is "yes", add the amount of points to your score for that question. If your answer is "well kind of" or "technically" then add those points. Add your score up continuously and at the end read what the results tell you about your character and act accordingly. If It's a question with more than one part (signified by indentations) and you answer "yes" for two or more parts then add all of those points. That's pretty much the only guide line besides being honest with yourself. If you're not you won't know for sure if your character is a sue or not.

Question: Can I leave feedback, critique, or ideas?

Answer: If you feel a particular question should or shouldn't be here, or disagree with the point system you are MORE than welcomed to leave feedback, and tell me why something should be changed. I will read and re-research all feedback.


  • This test does not apply to AU characters or Next Generation characters and is based on the Canon-Manga plot of Naruto.
  • Please note that every good character is bound to have some of these characteristics or have a couple of these things in there story/past. The problem is when too many of these things start happening to the same character.

DO NOT EDIT THIS PAGE WITHOUT PERMISSION. I don't want anyone changing the questions because the test called them a sue. Unless your just fixing grammar/spelling ask permission. Also please do not post this test or any part of it on another site without linking back to this page and giving credit.

Part 1: The Name

How realistic is the name and how does it effect characterization?

[ ] Does the Character have your name, a variation of your name, your name but more japanese sounding, a pun of your name, your nickname, any online chat handles you use, or otherwise any other name that has been applied to you in your life? [+10]

[ ] Does the name contain unnecessary hyphens, apostrophes or other punctuation? [+1]

[ ] Do they have a name that isn't Japanese. (Japanese-Sounding but not Japanese counts) [+3]

[ ] Does this non-japanese name have an " L," "X," and/ or"V". (Do some research people these letters don't exist in Japanese! For example, the name "Lina" would be written as "Rina" and the name "Vash" would be written as "Bashu.") [+1]

[ ] If it IS a Japanese name did you deliberately spell it wrong?[+1] (Ex. Adding one or more letters, removing one or more letters, changing letters, switching letters around)

[ ] If so is it spelled wrong for no reason? [+1] (Ex. A real reason is the characters parents were honestly illiterate. Spelling it wrong because you think it looks/sounds better that way is NOT a reason.)

[ ] Does the character have more than 1 first or last name without reason? [+1]

[ ] Does the character have a middle name? (That's considered to be extremely unusual in Japan. So plus 3 for failing to do research on the culture your character is in.) [+3]

[ ] More than 1 middle name? [+1]

[ ] An otherwise unusual-sounding name (unusual in the character's time/place/world/clan etc.) [+1]

[ ] Is it a pun or variation name of an existing character. (Ex. Naruko, Naruka, Sakurayu, Sisuke, Sakuke, Sasuki, Itacha, Nagata.) [+1]

[ ] This was done intentionally. [+1]

[ ] Is the name intentionally taken from a character of a different anime, manga, show, game, comic, book, or movie that you like [+1]

[ ] Intentionally taken from an existing person you admire or like. (Ex. Celebrities, Writers, Animators, Mangakas, Voice Actors) [+1]

[ ] A masculine-sounding name for a female character or vise versa without reason? [Nicknames don't count.] (An example is their mother/father wanted the opposite gender child and was emotionally disturbed by having the gender they didn't want is a reason "Just Because" is not) [+1]

[ ] Involve a noun or verb not usually used as a name, spelled normally or not? [+1]

[ ] If a noun, was it deliberately chosen because it's related to nature, a weapon, a gemstone, darkness, or something mystical? [+1]

[ ] Chosen because you thought it had a meaning appropriate for your character?(If this is a clan name that refers to their abilities then it doesn't count) [+1]

[ ] Does the character have some cool sounding title. (You know corny stuff like "the dark-hearted fallen angel", "the masked avenger", "the warrior of justice") [+1]

[ ] Did your character chose their own name or change their name so that "they wouldn't forget" something? [+1]

[ ] Is anyone (including you) jealous of your character's looks, and/or see their attractiveness as a threat? [+1]

[ ] If female is it Sakura and/or Ino? [+1] (And slap your self for being Cliche)
[ ] If male is it Sasuke, Neji, Gaara, or a memer of Akatsuki? [+1] (They REALLY don't care about that stuff)

[ ] Do other characters frequently tell your character how sexy, cute, or beautiful they are? (Parents don't really count here since they often call their children cute/beautiful)[+1]

[ ] Does your character modestly deny it every time, refuse to believe that they are attractive, or otherwise still not realize they are attractive? [+1]

[ ] Does your character have a great body/physique, which you describe, show, and/or illustrate in detail? [+1]

[ ] Does your character have eating and/or excercising habits decree that they should be under or overweight but aren't? [+1]

[ ] Is their body/physique unrealistic? (Ex. Huge breast but they don't have broad shoulder, big breast but a narrow waist, Biceps bigger than they should be for body mass, or otherwise not proportioned the way they should) [+1]

[ ] If they have breast that are two big for their body to support (Small waist and shoulders that aren't broad enough, hips that aren't wide enough) do they not suffer from back problems and the other existing medical complications that this would cause? [+1]

[ ] And this doesn't detract from their attractiveness [+1]

[ ] If they don't have Heterochromia iridum are their eyes two different colors because of "genetics" (ex. mom having one eye color and dad having the other)[+3] (And slap yourself. Genetics don't work like that)

[ ] Do they wear something impractical for a ninja to wear that would restrict flexibility, get in the way while fighting or otherwise be difficult to fight in? (Ex. Leather, metal suit, Long or flowing skirt, Heels bigger than Sakura's, tight clothing, skirt without a slit.) [+1]

[ ] Does the character have neon colored hair? [+1]

[ ] Does the character have hair that is more than one color and it isn't dyed that way.[+1]

[ ] Is it because: "LOL Her/his dad has insert hair color X here hair, and her/his mom has insert hair color Y here hair so that's why he/she has multicolored hair!" [+1] (Believe it or not I've seen this many times, Genetics don't work like that.)

[ ] Do they wear clothing that you deliberately picked from your own wardrobe or that you would like to wear? [+1]

[ ] Clothing chosen because you really wished you owned it or could get away with wearing it in public? [+1]

[ ] Clothing chosen because it makes your character look super sexy and/or badass? [+1]

[ ] Clothing that looks more western than eastern? (Masahi designs the outfits of his characters to be based off of Japanese, Chinese and Korean traditional clothing, and similar areas. So if your character is wearing a European looking corset you might want to rethink the wardrobe.) [+1]

[ ] Do they look eerily similar to a canon character? [+1] (If you don't think so but others have repeatedly told you they do and you have refused to change their appearance then it counts)

[ ] Do they wear a carbon copy of of a canon characters outfit /but only a few things look different? (Ex. changing colors, adding longer sleeves, different shoes) [+1]

[ ] Do they have the distinctive feature of an existing canon character? (EX. Naruto's Whisker birthmarks, Gaara's eye circle birth marks, Gaara's love tattoo, Sakura's hair bangs, Sasuke's duck butt hair, Iruka's scar etc.)[+1]

[ ] Does the character naturally look much younger than they actually are, older than they actually are, ageless, or in any way not their actual age? (A 20 year old looking 16 doesn't count, and a 12 year old looking 14 doesn't count. I mean generally large gaps like a 5 year old looking 10, a 13 year old looking 17, or a 50 year old looking 30.) [+1]

[ ] If they appear much younger is it a VERY large gap? (Ex. A 50 year old looking 15. Come on people, this is Naruto not Inuyasha) [+2]

Part 3: Species, Demons, and Hybrids

[ ] Is the character a species that doesn't exist in the Naruto realm or something extremely similar to these species or something with all or most of the traits of these species? (EX. Neko or similar, Fairy, mermaid, angel, witch or other magic user, werewolf, shapeshifter, etc) [+3]

[ ] Without reason? (Being genetically experimented on for years is a reason."They were born that way", "it's a clan trait", "they were bit/infected" are not reasons) [+1]
[ ] This species just so happens to be a vampire? [+2]
[ ] And they don't have the normal drawbacks of vampires or do they have/own something that prevents the drawbacks? (EX. Burning flesh and eyes in the sun, being blood thirsty heathens and going insane with the lack of it, ONLY being able to digest skin and blood, being warded off by garlic/crosses/holy water/rosary, being staked in the heart causes instantaneous death, Not being able to walk on holy ground, Not being able to cross running water, not having a reflection in any mirror or reflective surface) [ Add +1 for EACH listed weakness they do not have/are exempt from]
[ ] If they can go out into the sun, are they still abnormally pale? (Explanation: The only reason vampires are pale is because they must avoid the sun. Not because of "genetics." Also keep in mind in original European folklore Vampire's skin was described as "ruddy" or "dark." Being pale was mostly a North American idea of vampires.) [+1]
[ ] If they are neko or otherwise have animal-like ears or tails, can they "hide" them by making them invisible or retracting them into their body? [+1]

[ ] If this character is Sasuke does he also love them in Shippuden?[+1] (Sasuke has said all non-Uchiha are Scum and that he hates anyone who is not a Uchiha. If your character IS an Uchiha they shouldn't really be alive in the first place. Even if he could love your character [which he can't] he would not care about the love or be able to focus on thinking about her because revenge against his brother/Konoha is the most important thing even if she was a Uchiha. )

[ ] Is the character ever engaged to but does not get married to a canon character ? [+1]

[ ] If so, was the character ever betrothed to Sasuke/Itachi before the Uchiha incident? (I can't tell you how often I see this crap in fanfiction.

[+1]

[ ] Does the character ever marry a canon character? [+1]

[ ] If they are a canon canon character's sibling are they also their twin? [+1]

[ ] Do they solve the personal problems of any canon character? [+1]

[ ] Does your character tell off, beat up, humiliate, outdo, or kill a character to whom you would personally like to do the same? [+1] (Be honest. *I'm looking at you Sakura haters* I understand disliking a character but don't make your OC live out your fantasy)

[ ] At any point, does your character take over the job/position of a canon character? [+1]

[ ] Is your character placed on one of the Konoha 11's teams for any reason? (It's supposed to be 3 genin and 1 Jounin. Get over it people.) [+2]

[ ] Did this friendship make his fan girls all jealous of your character? [+1]
[ ] And they became mean or resentful to the character? [+1]
[ ] Did this friendship make another canon character jealous of Sasuke?[+1]
[ ] Was it Naruto? [+1]

[ ] Is Sasuke closer to your OC than he is to Naruto.? (This conflicts with the canon because he considered killing Naruto because in order to improve his Sharingan he would have to kill the person he is closest to. This can't happen if he is closer to your OC.) [+1]

[ ] Was your character with Sasuke the night of the massacre? [+1]

[ ] Does the presence of the character make the canon characters not like who they originally liked? (EX. Making Naruto not like Sakura, making Hinata not like Naruto, making Sakura not like Sasuke) [+1]

[ ] Does your character see or speak to Sasuke the same night he leaves Konoha. (Sakura is supposed to be the only one he saw that night) [+1]

[ ] Does your character go with Sasuke to Orochimaru? (He's not supposed to let anyone go with him, he loves no one and his revenge is the most important thing. It doesn't matter if your character offers to help him with his revenge) [+1]

[ ] Or does Sasuke give up revenge on his brother or revenge on Konoha for your character? [+5]

[ ] If your character becomes a missing-nin do they not have a real reason for becoming one? (Feeling that their village betrayed them is a reason, a lust for greater power is a reason. "They were bored", "They live in the moment", "They were curious", "They just didn't like the village anymore" are NOT reasons) [+1]

[ ] If your character does become a missing nin/abandon there village, do they ever decide to return or attempt to return to the village? [+1]
[ ] And they're not killed on the spot? [+1]
[ ] They are not killed are they not imprisoned for at least a year, or another extremely harsh punishment? [+1]
[ ] If they do finally become a citizen of the village again; do there old friends, or neighbors, or acquaintances welcome them back with open arms, or not have distrust for them?

Hidan's Jashinistic Activities, Itachi's slaughter of the Uchiha's, Deidara was a terrorist bomber, Sasori kidnapped the Kazekage to butcher him into a human puppet, Be creative people random killing of random people doesn't really count) (Seriously your OC can't just join the Akatsuki because they feel like it; it's not that simple to join and they're not going to want your character because she's sooo "kawaii-desu")
[ ] Do they not wear the proper Akatsuki uniform or do they wear an altered/modified Uniform? [+1]
[ ] Is it modified or altered to make your character look more attractive or modified to be more revealing? [+1] (EX.

[ ] Does your character have a demon/is a demon/ a host or jinchūriki and is still part of the Akatsuki? [+5] (Change your character right now. You seem not to realise what the Akatsuki actually is)
[ ] Is your character a female Akatsuki member?[+1] (I'm not picking on them simply because they're female. That's why this is only a one point question. It's because if you do research it clearly states Kishimoto wanted Konan to be the only Akatsuki member who was female.)

[ ] Does the character ever become a Kage or is ever offered the position of a Kage? [+2]

[ ] At an age younger than 30? [+1]
[ ] Younger than 20? [+2]

[ ] Are any other actions that get your character into trouble with authority always justified from your point of view? [+1]

[ ] Has your character had a tragic past or was unfairly hated but they are still very happy/exuberant or "hyper"? [+1]

[ ] Does the character go on an unrealistic or unbalanced amount of missions or missions inappropriate for their rank? [+2]

≥0 Points

Why are you taking this? You either intentionally made an anti sue or you haven't created a character yet.

1 -10 points:

The Anti-Sue. Your character is the very antithesis of a Mary-Sue. In this category your character can mean two things.1.) You need to add more positives to the character. OR. 2.) Your character already does have enough positives and you made her/him interesting and balanced in your own unique way.

It really depends on the writer but if you scored under five you may want to wiggle some more positives in there.

11-20 points:

The Non-Sue. Your character is a well-developed, balanced person, and is almost certainly not a Mary Sue. Congratulations!

21-34 points:

Borderline-Sue. Your character is cutting it uncomfortably close, and you may want to work on the details a bit, and tweak some things but you're well on your way to having a lovely original character. At this point level your level can very well BE a Mary sue, depending on the writer. If you are on the lower side of this you might not be a borderline sue; it really depends on the writer. Tweak a little something here or there anyway.

35-55 points:

Mary-Sue / Gary-Stu. Your character needs some work in order to be believable. But despair not; you should still be able to salvage him/her with a little effort. Don't give up, just change up the most sueish details (for some characters it might the relationships, for others it might be the powers), then take the test again. There's still a chance you can save this character

56-70 points:

Über-Sue. You've got one hell of a Mary-Sue on your hands here, and it's not going to be easy to set things right. But do your best. There may be hope for you yet. The character might be redeemable if you work hard enough but I think it would best to let it die with some dignity and restart.

≥ 71 points:

Irredeemable-Sue. You're going to have to start over, my friend. I know you want to keep your character, but no. Just no. Immediate workover is in order.

FLAME ME BRING IT ON. I wan't you to, I will point and laugh at your stupid sue, and how you are representing yourself. :3
