Let's say you're reading through your favorite {{fanfiction}} website and one day, you decide to read some stories set in your favorite fandom. New student joins the school, ho hum... wait, did the main villain [[SwiperNoSwiping just step down after one snippy remark]] from her? That's not right... hey, I thought he already had a girlfriend! Wait a second, did the evil miners all turn themselves in to the police after she had a talk with their leader? Who is this character and why is the whole world bending to her will?

Congratulations, you've just met the Black Hole Sue.

Her gravity is so great, she draws all the attention and causes other characters (and, often, [[RealityWarper reality itself]]) to bend and contort in order to accommodate her. Characters don't act naturally around her. They instead serve as plot enablers for her, with dialogue that only acts as set-ups for her response. She dominates every scene she is in, with most scenes without her serving only to give the characters a chance to "talk freely" about her. Most people don't oppose her and anybody who does will either realize their fault in doing so or just prove easy to overcome.

The very laws of the universe bend to accommodate her. If there's only [[MillionToOneChance one in a million chance]] she could succeed at something, she'll [[BoringInvincibleHero accomplish it with flying colors.]] If the logical outcome of the story would end in her failure, a DeusExMachina will ensure her victory. Nothing is too implausible for her to accomplish, whether it be going from RagsToRoyalty, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu killing]] an EldritchAbomination, or bringing about world peace. If she is so inclined, she may do all that before sitting down to a breakfast [[CanonDefilement consisting of the original story.]]

Even the most [[TheSnarkKnight disdainful and unmoving characters]] will be EasilyImpressed with her. Is their some great deity of unimaginable power in the setting? Expect her to have them [[WowingCthulhu astounded by her abilities.]] If she is so inclined, she may do all that before sitting down to a breakfast [[CanonDefilement consisting of the original story.]]

'''Xander:''' No, he's not! He's just perfect enough! He crushed the bones of TheMaster, he blew up a big snake made out of mayor, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and he coached the U.S. Women's Soccer team to a stunning World Cup victory!]]
