* The protagonist of ''Manga/SakamotoDesuGa'' 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.

* Aliera in the ''{{Dragaera}}'' series has been seen by fans as one of these. While she has a number of Sue-ish traits, being a strikingly beautiful ActionGirl, but she is very far from being a Sue, instead presented as a hot head with morally questionable beliefs (admittedly this is her House's [[PlanetOfHats hat]]).

* The DCComics universe has the legendary Rex the [[HeroicDog Wonder Dog]]. He's a decorated veteran [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica World War II experimental supersoldier]]. He's an investigative journalist. He can drive vehicles. He can speak every language that exists, has eternal youth, and has ill-defined magical powers. He once nuked a T. rex. He almost certainly knows more than Batman and Mr. Terrific combined. He's also a dog, who gained the ability to talk ''after'' he had already accomplished most of his impressive stuff.

** It's somewhat subverted when you realize you are comparing her to ''Zim.'' Tak's competency is likely the norm or at least not unexpected for a ''real'' invader (which Zim is not). One episode had Zim spying on some of his fellow Invaders, and we see most have already taken over the worlds. It's later revealed the first one was by ''Skoodge.'' Tak isn't overly competent to make fun of Mary Sues; she's overly competent to remind us just how genuinely ''dangerous'' the Irken Empire itself really is when they're not screwing around.

* One ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch is a fake trailer for a movie called ''The Group Hopper'', a parody of movies like ''Film/TheMazeRunner'' and ''Film/TheHungerGames''. The main character is an ordinary boy refuses to conform to a category, instantly gets the girl because of this, has a powerful ancient weapon called a "zoomerang", draws parallels to God ("I'm a virgin pregnant with your baby!"), and is outright stated to be TheChosenOne. Also, his name is "[[PunnyName The]][[MeaningfulName hero]]", which he says it tattooed on his back; [[DontExplainTheJoke it actually reads]] "TheHero".

* Sierra from ''[[TotalDramaIsland Total Drama World Tour]]'' has quite a lot of CommonMarySueTraits. However, other characters find her creepy and annoying, especially Cody.

* Swifty the Shrew from ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' is a walking play on this trope. He wows the cast, shows up Sonic himself, and basically crowd-pleases... at first. As time wears on, the entire main cast join Sonic in finding him irritable, and with how regularly he appears in front of Sonic during their race, it becomes clear he's also a cheater. [[spoiler:There's also the fact he's just one of a line of mass-produced drones Eggman made to help facilitate the construction of his new amusement part, which is how he was able to cheat in the first place. After peer pressure from Amy pushes Fink to revoke Sonic's banishment, the Swifties are rapidly disassembled.]]
* Susie's mother Lucy in ''{{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}}'' appears to be a Parody Sue, judging from her first episode. She repeatedly stuns Didi with just everything she's accomplished in her life - aside from being a qualified doctor with four kids, she's also a chef who studied in France, a talented artist, a certified pilot and is almost perfectly sweet. The parody part comes from how she casually drops all these talents to a dumbfounded Didi.

** Saitama's friend and apprentice, Genos, approaches Parody Sue [[TheAce from the other direction]]. Genos, unlike his bald, average-looking HeterosexualLifePartner, is a handsome and extremely cool looking {{Cyborg}} with a tendency to brood, a DarkAndTroubledPast, and a seemingly endless array of weapons he uses to catapult himself to the S-Class elite heroes almost immediately after he makes his debut. He's also a ButtMonkey who regularly gets his arms torn off due to his inexperience and recklessness, usually serving as TheComicallySerious WorfBarrage to Saitama, who cut Genos off in the middle of his exposition about his past [[WallOfText due to its length]].
