* ''TalesOfMonkeyIsland'' has Santino, one of de Cava's crew members. Possesses a multitude of great skills (including brawling, cross-stitching and speaking the language of the giant manatees), is utterly fearless, and is so attractive even the (straight male) captain is affected. He's also long dead, although the rest of the crew seems not to have noticed.

* In the PS3 version of ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', [[ThePaladin Flynn Scifo]] is a Type 3 that is PlayedForDrama. His best friend and eternal rival, AntiHero[=/=]VigilanteMan Yuri Lowell constantly snarks about how he gets the treatment of a GodModeSue in-universe when it comes to combat and politics. However, Yuri is also aware that his friend is the single most LawfulStupid human being in existence. When his devotion to the rules [[NiceJobBreakingItHero cause him to screw up]], Yuri ''really'' lets him have it... [[CharacterDevelopment and Flynn reluctantly realizes that he's in the wrong for once when he does]].

* ''[[http://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=i8zvmcrfnwu4jhiu Mhairie Sioux Escrivain and the Dracula of Hogwarts]]'' is an InteractiveFiction game where you play as a [[PunnyName Mhairie Sioux]] in the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' who's half-unicorn, has a faerie dragon as a pet, is so speshul that she becomes a member of ''all'' four Hogwarts houses at once, gets Harry and Draco to moon over her, ''and'' saves the entire school from Dracula by being so pure that her blood moves the vampire to reform on the spot. In case you haven't figured out by now, this game is not meant to be taken seriously in the slightest.

* Jason on ''TheGeorgeLopezShow'' is probably meant to be a parody. He plays baseball, is on the debate team, spends his free time wheeling around his disabled brother, and has daddy issues.
* Series/{{Leverage}} features a character, Jim Sterling, about whom the writers had a rule. That rule was "Jim Sterling ''doesn't lose!''" What makes this a parody? Jim Sterling is the main character's rival.
* The title protagonist in ''ParkerLewisCantLose''.

* 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.

* A story arc in ''FanFic/InvaderZimTheSeries'' (a fanfic adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'') involves a group of these, the leader of whom is named Sue, and murders JhonenVasquez [[DisproportionateRetribution for the cancellation of the original series,]] then becomes the girlfriend of [[AuthorAvatar Nick Grey]] (a self-admitted FixerSue) after [[RealLifeWritesThePlot his old girlfriend leaves him.]] During this, she also provides assistance to both Dib and Zim from behind the scenes, using her assistance to partly brainwash them into loving her to some extent. This leads to the two becoming vampires through having them eat something during the process of becoming vampires. Naturally, Zim and Dib become [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires that feed on chinese food and corn, respectively, as well as taking on mutations related to what they feed on.]] After this, she reveals to Nick that her full name is RelationshipSue, a half-Irken, half-human with [[GodModeSue the power to draw an infinite amount of guns out of thin air]], and that her plan is to enslave Zim so that the two can conquer the universe as king and queen. She then kills him. This ultimately leads to an epic battle between the Sues and [[EnemyMine Zim, Dib,]] Gaz, GIR, [[ComicBook/JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac Johnny C]], and [[EvilKnockoff White]], which concludes with Gaz [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill crushing Relationship Sue to death]] with [[CoolCar a monster truck.]]

* ''Webcomic/BiteMe'': The reveal of [[spoiler:[[http://www.bitemecomic.com/?p=571 Claire's backstory]] ]]probably makes her this.



** [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Garou]] is the latest addition to the series' array of Parody Sues, but is unique in that he's a Parody VillainSue...PlayedForDrama. [[spoiler:Like the "overpowered" kind of Villain Sue, he's a godlike, handsome martial artist known as the HeroKiller who seems to nearly invincible, toying with heroes who barely get near his SuperWeight, which increases every fight, and has a ruthlessly intelligent mind that he does not actually use for [[TheChessmaster scheming]] at all, only [[AwesomenessByAnalysis outwitting his opponents]]. Like the "sympathetic" kind, he has a regular TearJerker of a FreduianExcuse that justifies all the things he does under the ideology of being one side of the BalanceOfGoodAndEvil...[[NobleDemon because he really didn't do that many bad things to begin with]]. As Saitama [[WarriorTherapist forces him to realize]], the very reason he wants to be the Evil side is that he [[ZeroPercentApprovalGambit desperately wants the Good side to rise up and stop him]], [[WellIntentionedExtremist uniting humanity and stopping any other children from going what he went through]]. A desire that, as it turns out, makes his reputation as an overpowered villain somewhat fraudulent-he's genuinely powerful, but [[ThouShaltNotKill has racked up a (human) body count of precisely zero]], thus explaining why the heroes he fights somehow manage to always survive (he honestly wants them to live), and while he has killed members of the Monster Association, it wasn't to increase his VillainCred but to stop them from killing innocents. Ultimately, Garou is what would happen if a Villain Sue was actually as sympathetic as the writer wants the reader to think he is-ie, a hero in denial that he is a hero.]]

* Henrietta Hunter in ''[[Comicbook/XForce X-Statix]]'', a world-renowned mutant popstar and philanthropist with a tragic past and a constantly-chipper demeanor, who due to her fame is instantly made leader of the team once she joins despite having absolutely no qualifications. She's so annoyingly-perfect that the other team members actively start ''trying'' to get her killed on missions.

* Zed from ''WildArms'', moreso 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.

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': setting aside any AlternateCharacterInterpretation one might have of the members of Team Kimba, there are a few of these around.
** [[TwoWordsObviousTrope Two Words]]: Crimson Comet.
** The Lit Chix are the [[AuthorAvatar Author Avatars]] for the Canon Cabal, and were deliberately designed to poke fun at the writers' foibles. This didn't stop [[AscendedExtra Loophole]] from becoming a main character later.
** [[LanternJawOfJustice 'Captain' Bravo]] and his main squeeze [[JoanOfArchetype Pucelle]] are an {{Anvilicious}} parody of two classic superheroic archetypes.

* The protagonist of ''Manga/SakamotoDesuKa'' is a guy who seems incapable of [[MundaneMadeAwesome doing things without stylish flair]], thus earning a reputation as TheAce among his classmates. Understandably, his unflappable nature causes other classmates to hate him and try to humiliate, only for him to trump them through being even more ridiculous.
