* Similarly, the ''{{Anti Cliche and Mary Sue Elimination Society}}'' ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin thus the name]]), also in its own shared universe but in a much smaller shell. The Society goes up against [[ParodySue mostly Parody Sues and Stus]], except some authors will choose to use [[OldShame their own former Sues]]. However, some of the Agents are almost a hop, skip, and a jump from being Sues themselves, and they're only protected by the mighty power of LampshadeHanging (and being mostly crazy).

* ''FanFic/AntiClicheAndMarySueEliminationSociety'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Most Sues hunted by the group are from made-up fanfics, but Sues from real fanfics are, at the request of the author who owns them fair game. (The society hinges on the belief that Sues are often {{Old Shame}}s of whoever first designed them.) Unlike most, the Society offers rehabilitation to captured Sues, and a few members of the Society are [[HeelFaceTurn reformed Sues themselves.]]

* ''LynchingITP'' is a set of PlayByPostGames which combine this with MegaCrossover, usually directed at the worlds of ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' or ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'', though it has a tendency to turn into an UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny with the Sues in the background.

* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' has a somewhat unique, dead serious example with the [[ClockRoaches Blank Wolf]]. As the GuardianEntity of the timeline, it's meant to [[RetGone erase things]] that shouldn't exist, which includes Mary Sues. As a result, it can NoSell their OP abilities. However, in ''this'' universe, Mary Sues are PlayedForDrama as creation-threatening CosmicHorror level beings created by unknowing [[EldritchAbomination Shadows Who Make]] that attempt to hijack existing stories and twist them to revolve around them, and most of its victims are creations of the author for the story [[spoiler:including the BigBad General-Admiral Makarov]] rather than ones he perceived as Sues.

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 [[NotSoDifferent 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.

* [[Blog/LimyaaelsFantasyRants Limyaael]] wrote ''Fanfic/TheGameOfTheGods'', a ''[[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Lord of the Rings]]'' fanfic that has [[UltimateEvil Morgoth]] playing a game with Varda where he creates Mary Sues and places them in Middle-Earth while his opponents use logic and the rules of Tolkienian canon to kill them.
* The ''{{Redwall}}'' fandom used to have these. It was headed by a [[DeadpanSnarker weasel named Kelaiah]] and a [[ActionGirl pine marten.]]

* 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.
