* An example that defies classification: There was a German radio drama series with fanfictions parodying fairy tales. One was about the sufferings of an [[Creator/HansChristianAndersen ugly punkling]] ("punk" as in the music/life style). It ended with Kim Wilde crashing the scene, blinding the punkettes with her beauty and dragging him off to pop music ever after.

* In ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', the Ultramarines are portrayed as overly polite and honorable and ''ludicrously effective'' at everything they do. Even so, the Emperor still thinks they are "a stupid fucking smurf village", and even their own Chapter Master is sick and tired of their perfectness. [[spoiler: It's been all but said that the Ultramarines are getting help from outside forces; whatever's going on, the Chapter Master knows and feels [[NervousWreck really guilty]].]]

** Sly Marbo, an Imperial Guardsman and {{Franchise/Rambo}} {{expy}} becomes a maybe even bigger example of this trope than the ''Ultramarines'' in one of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCMNWAJiz5Y shorts]] he flies across space unshielded and singlehandedly frees a planet from the Dark Eldar in the most over-the-top manner - beating his enemies with their own ''subtitles''.
** Kaldor Draigo is a desconstruction of this trope. His canon incarnation has been criticized for many impossible feats such as surviving inside the Warp indefinitely and score countless victories against the Daemons (some of which include ''[[DemonOfHumanOrigin Daemon Primarchs]]''). However, being trapped in the Warp for so long made Draigo turn completely [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} cuckoo]]. His combat prowess is just as ridiculous though, as he beats up a furious Daemon Primarch in a matter of ''milliseconds'' before anyone can still notice.

* LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya has probably become the definitive deconstruction/parody of the GodModeSue in Anime. She's brilliant and gets top grades without having to study ([[DitzyGenius though also prone to doing stupid things]] regularly), she's noted to be very attractive, she's also in incredible physical shape (having in a short period of time been in, quickly excelling, and gotten bored with, every school athletic club, who are pining to have her back), and an entire organization exists with the sole purpose of keeping her happy and making sure that she never loses at anything ([[SoreLoserbecause they are afraid of her]]). She is also [[spoiler:a ''literal'' God Mode Sue.]] In fact, she only doesn't count as being a MarySue because she's [[spoiler:totally disillusioned with reality due to her childhood]] and faced with a completely unflappable DeadpanSnarker. There's also the fact that her [[spoiler:"literal" God Mode]] is a direct ''obstacle'' to one of her main goals -- to experience the supernatural; much of the series involves the others running around trying to [[LockedOutOfTheLoop keep her in the dark]]. Her presence also makes their lives of the club members, as well as many others, harder instead of better, with no actual upside. It also really complicates her relationship with Kyon. She'd probably be mortified if she knew that Kyon can effectively read her mind at times based on [[spoiler:what her reality warping powers do]].

* Since ''{{Urinetown}}'' is a parody of musical theater, it makes TheIngenue, Hope Cladwell, one of the most over the top parody Sues ever, bordering on a {{Deconstruction}}. One could also say that TheHero, Bobby Strong, is also a Parody Sue.

* The main character of Sugoi Quest For Kokoro, a parody of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' , is this. You can already tell when her name is Sakura Katana-chan, but she's also a pink-blooded princess who is 'very rich and also powerful.'

** Being a JRPG DeconstructorFleet, the TalesSeries was bound to have a few of these. Another example is Colette in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', who is this (Type 3, [[spoiler:almost becoming a vegetable as a result]]) simply by being a deconstruction of TheChosenOne.
* Zed from ''WildArms'', more so in the remake ''Wild Arms Alter Code F''. He is a demon who sees himself as the incredibly awesome protagonist of the story and claims that the main characters are villainous, until he finally ditched Ziekfried and, in the remake, can eventually join the party. In the original game he also dropped the "Doom Bringer" sword which was very powerful but reduces Jack's luck the the worst possible value when he uses it - which sort of explains Zed's comic ineptitude throughout the game.
