the in-joke about "the real Buckaroo Banzai" is irrelevant to this trope
* The title character of ''TheAdventuresOfBuckarooBanzaiAcrossTheEighthDimension''. Neurosurgeon, particle physicist, race car driver, multi-instrumental rock star and comic book hero -- and that's the "''real''" one. In [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis the film]], he also saves the human race from an alien invasion effortlessly. And then there are all the ShroudedInMyth moments such as references to his former wife. All of this is very intentionally over-the-top and meant as comedy.

* Brilliantly done in ''{{Frasier}}'' episode "The Show Where Diane Comes Back", in which Diane's play ''Rhapsody and Requiem'' is a thinly veiled reproduction of ''{{Cheers}}'', with "Mary Ann" as the AuthorAvatar. ''Everyone'' loves her in the bar (even delivering an ode to her), which drives Frasier nuts, particularly since everyone also downplays the time that "Mary Ann" abandoned her fiance at the altar -- which, since Frasier was the fiancÚ who got stiffed in real life, he has some alternative perspectives and objections towards. When the actor "Franklin" openly asks why his character would forgive Mary Ann so easily for leaving him at the altar, it causes Frasier to explode in a famous speech:

* One episode of ''MyWifeAndKids'' has Creator/BettyWhite guest-star as a Film/MaryPoppins-like housekeeper who can do anything perfectly, and in doing so elicits an awed "... Wow..." from everyone around her...except for wife Jay, who feels put out by the attention she's getting. At the end of the episode, the Kyles' neighbor runs into the house, saying that he just saw her flying through the sky with an umbrella, garnering one final "...Wow..."

* On an episode of ''YesDear'', Jimmy (Mike O'Malley) was a contestant on , and within days became the most popular member of the household, prompting everyone (except poor Ashley) to use him as a decoy to get Ashley eliminated in the first ceremony (using something of a BatmanGambit, no less). Jimmy ended up disqualified when Greg snuck onto the set to try and warn him of treachery from the others (though it turned out that it was just part of the gambit, the revelation footage not having been televised on the episode they were watching).

* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' gives us Mr. Popo, who is said to be [[VillainSue the ultimate evil force in the series]]. The heroes are too weak to face him and are terrified of him, Shenron essentially bows down to him, he's the ManBehindTheMan with Kami, absorbs the immortal Garlic Jr., can cross into the real world and treats everyone like utter crap. ''And the fandom loves him for it!''

* SquirrelGirl is canonically the most powerful character in the Marvel Universe. The fact that her powers relate to ''talking to squirrels'' makes the parody aspects of this all the more obvious.

* In one ''Manga/DeathNote'' fan comic [[http://kikirini.deviantart.com/art/Kira-Hates-Sues-58694863]], a Parody Sue claims to, among other things, [[InformedAbility have been kicked out of the Wammy House for being too smart]]. Light asks her to write down her name, and [[TooDumbToLive she does... in the Death Note]].

self-potholes removed.
* DC also has Lobo, who is sometimes a ParodySue by way of being an overpowered parody of hyper-masculine NinetiesAntiHero characters during their peak time period. His accomplishments includes getting kicked out of heaven and hell (becoming immortal), fighting toe-to-toe with Superman, genociding his entire race and Santa Claus too, and wadding up and eating an entire city that ticked him off. His sense of smell lets him track ''across space'', and he's genius with any science involved in making weapons. On the other hand, his powers run on RuleOfFunny mixed with UnstoppableRage, so sometimes he's chumped ''hard'' instead.

* ''Webcomic/{{Pilot}}'' has numerous in-universe games. One of these games, Edgelord, is a parody of pretty much all MarySueTropes. As such, ''everyone'' (aside from [[OnlySaneMan Father Figure]]) is a ParodySue.

* A oneshot fic in, of all things, Series/TheAddamsFamily fandom (oh yes, there is one) parodies the in-fandom tendency towards Sues. The full name of the character in question?
