Even back then, there wasn't a total consensus on what was or wasn't Mary Sue, since it's not always immediately obvious which character is an AuthorAvatar. As [[http://www.merrycoz.org/papers/MARYSUE.HTM this essay reveals]], suspiciously Mary Sue-like characters were noted in subscriber-submitted articles for 19th-century childrens' magazines, making this trope [[OlderThanTheyThink Older Than You Think]].

It can be a shocking reminder that there is a lot more to a story or character than just [[SoCoolItsAwesome good]], [[DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible bad]] and [[SoOkayItsAverage mediocre]]. As with all of the different qualifiers it only gets really bad when you combine all of them together. When they only have one or two they have a chance at redemption... or be the poster child for it.

Sort of a merge of elements between YamatoNadeshiko, MysteriousWaif, MagicalGirlfriend, MacGuffinGirl, FriendToAllLivingThings, and/or TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth, usually with an emphasis on feminine perfection. Tends to have a DarkAndTroubledPast to emphasize specialness. This label doesn't really hold that much negativity to it, since there are people that actually label their stories as having them. See MarySueClassic for the plot framework that often gets invoked.
