What happens when you have a PuritySue, and remove the Purity part? You get a Neutrality Sue. This one, much like the AntiSue, is not afraid to be flawed. In this case, however the distinction made is not that the character is trying to be flawed, but that any flaws are {{Hand Wave}}d by them being [[GreyAndGrayMorality neutral characters]]. But, here's the interesting part... this means they have license to do ''anything''. Want them to save a kitten from a tree? They can. Want them to kick the kitten in the very next moment? They can, with no contradiction of character.

In terms of personality, this trope usually is either [[EmotionlessGirl devoid of emotion]], or varies from [[SugarAndIcePersonality deadpan to emotional]] to [[ChaoticStupid outright]] [[{{Yandere}} unstable]]. The NeutralitySue basically thrives on being somewhere between extremes, and thus able to do everything in between.

Related to the FixerSue, a combination of {{Purity Sue}}/{{Villain Sue}}, and in some cases the SympatheticSue (if backstory and personality flaws are played out heavily). Compare CloudCuckoolander.

The HeroicNeutral, the NatureHero, BadassNormal, and the RedMage are all good candidates, if they're taken UpToEleven, the [[AKindOfOne only one of their kind]], and their effects [[UnblockableAttack can't be suppressed or countered]]. Expect them to have PowerOfTheVoid, a [[HealingHands Hand of Life]]/[[EvilHand Hand of Death]], and YinYangBomb as their power. Usually the protagonist, since as a secondary character their power is usually downsized.

If the character is a [[RedMage Yin Yang Master]], but fits smoothly within the party, they are [[NatureHero probably another trope]]. If they affect the whole balance of the good and evil within the universe, or are the ''only'' defender of nature, and without whom the universe suddenly and inexplicably collapses due to the natural laws being disordered, then they might be this trope.
