* '''Exaggerated''':
** Sister Mary Sue goes out several times a week for cocktails dressed in something that's {{Stripperific}} or even VaporWear. She cusses so much sailors have been known to faint from shock, and is a regular at the local NoTellMotel. With [[SexyPriest Father]] [[MartyStu Martin]], no less!

** When no one's around, Sister Mary Sue likes to have a cigarette and a stiff drink and give herself fancy hairdos.
** Sister Maria is pious but a bit too whimsical and immature to be a nun. She enjoys singing songs, climbing trees, and sneaking off to go on walkabouts in the countryside, and is often late for prayers.
* '''Justified''':
** Sister Mary Sue is in a NunsAreMikos or NaughtyNuns setting, where her behavior and that of an actual nun may be two '' very'' different things.

* '''Subverted''':
** Sister Mary Sue enjoys the occasional cocktail, may even say the occasional "Damn it!" But is still a good person, and still does her best to be a good nun.
** Alternatively, [[HeelFaithTurn Sister Mary Sue ''used'' to be like that, but isn't anymore.]] [[NeverLiveItDown Her sordid past does come back to haunt her, however, and no one can believe she's actually a nun now.]]
** She likes to go out and do fun things society does not associate with nuns, but doesn't do anything bad or unwholesome.
* '''Double Subverted''': ...In front of her Mother Superior. When Mother Superior isn't looking, Sister Mary Sue [[KickTheDog kicks puppies]] and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking jaywalks]] on her way to the NoTellMotel to meet Father Martin, with cocktail in hand.
* '''Parodied''': All the nuns in Sister Mary Sue's order are [[MyGirlIsASlut wanton sluts]] bent on WorldDomination.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Sister Mary Sue dresses in a [[BadHabits Bad Habit]], but says her prayers and is helpful. At night, she goes on a drunken [[KickTheDog puppy-kicking rampage.]] The next day,[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Catholic guilt sets in,]] and she turns herself in and makes amends. Then she is seduced by [[SexyPriest Father Martin]], and says a Novena afterwards.
* '''Averted''': Sister Mary Sue is a generic nun, portrayed as neither overly good nor particularly naughty.

* '''Conversed''': "They actually let her join their convent?! The Catholic Church must be really desperate..."
* '''Deconstructed''': Sister Mary Sue is an outsider in the convent, the other nuns blatantly disapproving of her NunTooHoly behavior. She [[AntiHero isn't a bad person]], she just couldn't give up some of her vices. She may not even want to be in the convent, but was sent there by parents who wanted to get rid of her.
* '''Reconstructed''': Sister Mary Sue channels her urges to have fun in a more acceptable direction. She takes her fellow nuns to the amusement park, goes rollerblading, starts snowball fights, and engages in various other pastimes that may seem un-nun-like to outsiders but don't go against her vows. She livens up the convent and the other nuns become fond of her.
