  • 3
    Does one or more of the canon characters fall madly in love with your OC, despite having a regular canon pairing?
  • 4
    Does your character have no flaws at all? (A flaw being something bad about their personality, be it too selfish, naive, etc. Not something utterly unimportant like "She can't play the harmonica," or "She's so beautiful, it's a fault. Those who do say that will be temporarily keelhauled.
  • 5

  • 15
    Are any of the canon characters jealous of your OC's abilities, see her as a threat to their own romantic relationships because of their beauty/skills?
  • 16
    Do they fly? Without wings or apparent means?

    In your story, is she the kick-butt master until her romantic interest comes along, in which case she becomes helpless and kidnapped, captured, etc?
  • 18

My OC's name is Marial, and she's an oc I made in Miitopia. Yes, Miitopia. So anyways, she's a thief. Not a professional, but she's pretty good at it. She's kinda timid but stubborn, and will pretty much steal your stuff if she likes.

She was killed along wit her gardian wolf (aka a wolf that protects her)years after, her sister was still possessed but revived her. Yomi(aka her sister)still had some good left in her but she was still possessed. Ok this is going to take too long to write this whole thing out! It sounds like a mary sue but trust me, she is not

My OC is called Maxwell Walker. He has a special blue and orange eye that is rarely activated. He has powers, but he also has flaws. For example, he is kinda reckless and ambitious. He was somewhat inspired by famous music producer Alan Walker. He has a similar personality to me, but is somewhat more intelligent than your average 15 year old (he's 15). His parents died in a firing squad that captured him when he was born.

My character is called Rainbow, she has rainbow hair, rainbow eyes and is part cat. (Has black ears and tail and white skin tone)

She looks very Mary Suey, but, she has a very realistic personality , no powers, and she is made to be another me, so then that explains everything.

Age: 14
Gender: Female
Species: Fox
Fur Color: Sky Blue
Markings: Yes, but only one. A rose marking with some leafs

I have a ton of fursona. The oc I used is from Flight rising, as a sub-breed called Cat-wildclaws.
She lived at the final years of The Third Age, and her parents and youngest sibling died from The Shade, and her twin survived. With her unnatural abilities, she started a new flight, and her sister started one too. (more in her bio)
I ship her with Windsinger, hiss

My OC is a nature spirit, and it has a lot to do with the Legend of Zelda. It doesn't interact much with canon characters outside of the Windfish, Godesses, and the Hero/Ganondorf. It was made when Skyloft ascended, to protect forests from Demise. It only battled with Demise ONCE, and tragically lost. Its name is Bidione. It is a nice-looking character, with white-ish yellow fur with a vine pattern on back and neck, and sharp antlers clad in golden armor. Bidione's downside is it is often tactless and direct, and wary. Because of this, it is not a well known spirit, and the only friend it was able to attract was the Windfish, as a mate. (No, they weren't going to have offspring,) But after the events of Link's Awakening, and the Windfish was destroyed, Bidione did not trust the Hero until it learned of incarnates. But it still is wary, and fears losing, whether it be battles or close one.
All credit for Hero, Goddess, Ganondorf and everything except for Bidione itself belongs to Nintendo.

My OC’s name is Fernando The Cat- that’s right, first name Fernando, middle name The, last name Cat- and he’s a cereal mascot for a cereal company that I haven’t really figured out the name of yet, but will soon.

Anyway, his species is an orange talking cat guy thing, which is why he makes a “grrreat” cereal mascot (don’t worry, he’s not copy-paste Tony the Tiger). His age is 33 (in cat years) and looks his age. He’s also slightly overweight, so he’s not a Mary Sue there!

Bio: He was just enjoying a tropical cruise to Hawaii with his new cat girlfriend, when all of a sudden Cereal Company wanted to make a commercial. So one of Cereal Company’s “recruits” swooped in- and knocked Fernando out, threw him in a sack, and shipped him to Georgia, where the commercial was being shot. Fernando was never actually “asked” if he wanted to be in it, so basically they were doing something illegal. “But turn down this offer,” said the producers, “or the next place you’ll be going is the pound.”
To this day, Fernando is the official Cereal Company mascot- and hates ever second of it. When he’s not crying himself to sleep or doing a commercial, he and his friend Lucky the Leprechaun, both slaves to the most important meal of the day, plot methods of escape, write fanfics, watch Ratboy Genius, and wait for the day when it’ll all be over...

Fernando likes to wear a rainbow fedora and sparkly vest, despite his negative demeanor. He is grumpy or depressed 24/7, the only things he can stand being cookies, orange, death, his girlfriend, Ratboy Genius, fedoras, and Pokémon.

And that’s Fernando, boy-o.
