* There's still some debate among fans as to whether Jade from the ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' series ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' was intended to be one of these or not. She ''does'' have a ludicrous number of quirky hobbies, skills, and "cute" flaws (narcolepsy and [[CloudCuckoolander general ditziness]]). Jade also has a magical pet, crazy supernatural powers, future technology, a grasp on the unfolding plot, and she lives under the wing of her equally talented and rich Grandfather [[spoiler:who is deceased, making her ConvenientlyAnOrphan in addition to everything else.]] What makes her seem like a Parody Sue instead of a straight example is the fact that her Sue-ness (like every other trope used in the series) is [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated]] to the point that it becomes funny. [[spoiler:Then she loses her powers, her gear and her pet, and spends so much time dozing that all the other main characters zoom past her. Time to start earning your keep, miss.]]

*** She's also [[spoiler:the smarter, more talented sister of the BigBad]], and several sources believe that she's going to be instrumental in stopping Lord English. Which would all be very Sueish except for the fact that [[spoiler:she's currently ''dead'' because he OutGambitted her and killed her dreamself, leaving him permanently in control of their [[SharingABody shared body]] and Calliope's ghost hiding from him in a secluded corner of the Furthest Ring, with no idea what she's actually supposed to do]].

*** [[spoiler: Then we get Alt!Calliope. She's Calliope from a timeline where she managed to get past Caliborn and gain power equal to his. She actually manages to do what the kids have been trying to do for most of the story: destroy the Green Sun. She has actual, realistic emotional troubles, though, because ''her whole timeline was never meant to happen''.

* [[{{Deconstruction}} Deconstructed]] in ''FanFic/BeTheSeadwellerLowblood'' with Hakuba Dahaag. She's graceful and beautiful and mysterious and graceful and a [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Rainbow]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Drinker]], and was first introduced during a BigLippedAlligatorMoment. However, the other characters see fully well how [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant creepy]] and annoying her mannerisms are, despite not being too much different from some real [[MarySue Mary Sues]].

-->In short, Captain Avery was the young ErrolFlynn, only more so, with a dash of Power and Redford thrown in; the answer to a maiden's prayer, and between ourselves, rather a pain in the neck.

** His solution to C.C. holding him at gunpoint is to [[spoiler: attempt suicide, since a dead body can't be harmed by being shot.]] And it gets worse from there. The best bit? He did it in canon, WebVideo/CodeMENT just made it look far sillier.

* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3515932/1/At_Worlds_End At World's End]]'' is not a comedy, but it ''does'' have the character Don James, who is introduced in chapter eight and appears to be a Marty Stu, until [[spoiler: he dies at the end of the chapter,]] and then at the very beginning of the ''next'' chapter it's revealed that [[spoiler: he's been a traitor the entire time,]] and later on it is revealed that the reason for this is that [[spoiler: he was actually ''driven to madness by his own Marty-Stuness!'']] Though it doesn't say that last bit in as many words, obviously.

** More specifically: [[spoiler: they are, during the TournamentArc, revealed to be another hideous result of the BigBad residual evil; a Team Rocket experiment with human and Pokemon psychics that involved a piece of the shattered crystal core of the BigBad backfired, killing the psychics horribly, and in their dying moments, the psychic backlash was pulled together by the crystal and created Mariah Susanson, who became a RealityWarper and was influenced by her combined psyche's desires and wish fulfillment fantasies. Barry Stu was a random guy she tore the soul out of and remade to fit her desires; when the first Stu was defeated in a battle, she destroyed him and turned his opponent into her next Stu, and so and so forth. In other words, a more twisted take on the Sue problem.]]

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.

* Infinite from ''VideoGame/SonicForces'' has many VillainSue traits. He's faster than FastestThingAlive Sonic and effortlessly curbpstomps him, beats up powerful heroes like Silver and Omega easily, recruits a LegionOfDoom consisting of some of the franchises most powerful villains subservient to himself, is singlehandedly responsible for Eggman's takeover of the world, and every other sentence he speaks is about how awesome and powerful he is. Fans have also noted he checks off a lot of checkmarks for edgy OC villains produced by the fandom. [[spoiler:He's actually nothing more than a sadistic bully who's one ''real'' power is YourMindMakesItReal illusions that make him ''appear'' all powerful and the other villains are just illusionary copies. Once ways around it are found, he's not nearly as invincible as he likes to pretend he is and Eggman could dispose of him whenever he saw fit, which he ultimately does.]]

* Ice King of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' turns into one of these in the episodes [[spoiler: "Fionna and Cake" and "Bad Little Boy"]], which makes sense since these episodes are parodies of badly written FanFiction, with every narrative focus on Fionna and Cake being less about adventure and more about shipping.
