* The ''ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum'' could be argued to be the TropeCodifier for Mary Sue Hunters, as whether or not they [[TropeMaker started it]], they definitely popularised the idea. Different from others in that it has its own shared universe.

Usually, these stories are done in a style similar to ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'', taking excerpts from some other FanFic writer's work and building around it. The tone will usually be [[DeadpanSnarker cynical and satirical]].

The big problem with this sort of character and this sort of fanfic is HeWhoFightsMonsters. The most well known kinds of Mary Sues are the ones who [[BlackHoleSue warp the reality of their 'verses]] to the author's own liking. As Mary Sue Hunters exist solely to kill perceived Mary Sues and thus [[{{Hypocrite}} change the world of that "verse" to the author's liking]], they are by definition a [[TakesOneToKillOne type of sue]]. Also, not all authors can reliably tell if an OriginalCharacter is a Mary Sue, but Hunters are almost always presumed to be able to tell -- they don't generally say "MyGodWhatHaveIDone" So statistically, they are slightly more likely to be a Mary Sue than an OC without an agenda. Some works in this genre, inc. the TropeCodifier, have recognized this. In spite of this, entertaining sue hunters, or ones that target hated fanfics, can gain fans who like the FixFic aspect of these stories. Badly-written ones, however, aren't any better than your typical GodModeSue RevengeFic story and may even [[CycleOfRevenge become targets of]] Mary Sue Hunter stories themselves.

** HeWhoFightsMonsters kicked in pretty hard. Once Clef's fellow Sue Hunter, Dr. Kondrikai, was found riding TheDreaded SCP-682 like a bull, they knew they had gone too far and began retconing Mary Sues instead of decommissioning them.

Clef's writer has also written [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/chowderclef a sorta-retcon]] which leaves to the reader's imagination whether Clef's feats of badassery are real or an unremarkable researcher's records corrupted by an [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-732 SCP-732]] outbreak.
