God Mode Sue exists purely to show up how pathetically weak the rest of the world is, and how badly they need his or her help. If there's anybody else that is even capable of standing up for themselves, they may lose their abilities for some reason when the character comes into the equation, or [[IdiotBall become incompetent boobs]], or both. They'll [[DistressBall probably get captured]] or find something that they just can't handle. Then the God Mode Sue shows up, saves the day on his or her own at least twice as easily as they usually do when working as a team, and doesn't get his or her ass kicked at all. Then he or she stands around and wallows in their praise a bit.

People like to watch fiction to live vicariously through the characters. Most people in real life have no illusions about ever being able to do the sort of things within the movies. Whether it be the story of an athlete on his way to the top, life as the president, or StuffBlowingUp, these are stories that the [[{{Muggles}} average Joe]] won't find himself partaking in. Then there are things such as [[StockSuperpowers superpowers]], [[FunctionalMagic magic]], and high technology. However, even a story with [[{{Fantasy}} fantastic]] (or just merely [[MillionToOneChance highly improbable]]) elements has to make it believable in order to allow WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief. GodModeSue takes that WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief and tosses it out the window.

GodModeSue can overlap with pretty much anything, but generally doesn't overlap with PuritySue (whose overwhelming specialness is its own superpower) or SympatheticSue. It can overlap with a PossessionSue if a writer wants to show what (they feel) a canon character can ''really'' do. If it overlaps with VillainSue, then our heroes had better hope that he or she has a HeelFaceTurn coming up, or else OnlyTheAuthorCanSaveThemNow.

The ComicallyInvincibleHero is frequently as powerful as a GodModeSue, but is played for comedy due to RefugeInAudacity. Compare and contrast with the ShowyInvincibleHero, who dances on the line but avoids crossing it due to RuleOfCool. The InvincibleHero is the first stage of this trope. If an InfinityPlusOneSword is involved, it may be a sign that transition from InvincibleHero into GodModeSue takes place when it becomes impossible for a character to get separated from item granting him his powers or have their connection cut in any way. If that is obvious from the start, it's safe to assume character starts as a full-blown GodModeSue. The final stage of this trope, after the RockBottom has fallen out from under the story, is an all-devouring BlackHoleSue. Plus viewers can make their own god mode sue via MemeticBadass.

The trope name comes from term "GodMode" (or, more specifically, its use in the context of [[GodModders "godmodding"]]), which often gets used to denote when a player refuses to allow any random chance to negatively impact their character. In this case, the author is pretty much doing just that.
