->''"Ensign Mary Amethyst Star Enoby Aiko Archer Picard Janeway Sue is the youngest officer in Starfleet. A skilled linguist... an unmatched warrior... a cunning strategist... a scientific genius... a gentle healer... a passionate lover... She is a woman of exceptional beauty; bubbly, pure of heart and perfect in every way...\\\
...and she's driving the crew of a certain enterprising starship INSANE!"''

So begins the tale of ''Ensign Sue Must Die''. A {{webcomic}} drawn by [[Webcomic/ImMyOwnMascot Kevin]] [[Webcomic/TriggerStar Bolk]] of [[http://www.interrobangstudios.com/ Interrobang Studios]] and written by Clare Moseley of [[http://claremoseley.ca/ Clare Moseley.ca]]. The story takes place in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe after the events of the [[Film/StarTrek 2009 revamp film]] which follows the Starship ''Enterprise'''s new medical officer Ensign Sue. The comic completely parodies the concept of a MarySue character. Can be found [[http://www.interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=989 here]] or on [[http://comicalclare.deviantart.com/art/Ensign-Sue-Must-Die-01-165689110?q=gallery%3Acomicalclare%2F25413573&qo=26 deviantart.]]

The original storyline having come to a close that is not ''quite'' ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, a continuation -- ''Ensign Two: [[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan The Wrath of Sue]]''-- began on December 21, 2012 and finished on August 16, 2013. A final storyline -- ''Ensign³: [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Crisis of Infinite Sues]]''-- began on January 31, 2014 and finished on January 2, 2015.

----
!!This webcomic provides examples of:

* ActorAllusion[[invoked]]:
** Sherlock, before leaving the ''Enterprise'', says to Kirk that "[he] will seeing [him] soon". This is an allusion to Benedict Cumberbach playing both Sherlock ''and'' Khan. [[spoiler: Turns out that "Sherlock" was ''actually'' Khan, and he guided them into Sue Prime's plan all along.]]
** Subverted with Sulu, who is [[Creator/GeorgeTakei implied to be gay]] but is played by John Cho in the rebooted series. (Either that or HilariousInHindsight, since Cho's instance of Sulu was later revealed to be gay.)
* ArtShift:
** During the fourth comic, when Sue narrates.
** Mostly averted in the world-hopping in Ensign 2.
* AuthorOnBoard: Played with. Although Ensign Sue has all the usual qualities of a MarySue, she has somehow popped up in a universe where all the other characters ''don't'' follow the usual rules of a MarySue fic. It's implied that their minds ''will'' be warped if they spend enough time around her. In the Literature/HarryPotter universe, the other characters are indeed acting like the typical cast of a MarySue story.
* AwesomenessIsVolatile: Khan is disintegrated by the sheer magnificence of [[spoiler:Khan Prime's pecs.]]
* BackFromTheDead: Ensign Sue, who was killed off in the end of the first chapter. Sue Prime then brought her back as the Sue of the Literature/HarryPotter universe. She reveals her old medical uniform after reuniting with Captain Kirk.
* BadassCrew: The group that joins forces to form LaResistance after [[spoiler:Sue Prime successfully created her Sueniverse]] is composed of all the heroes of all stories that have not been [[spoiler: brainwashed yet.]]
* TheBadGuyWins: At the end of ''The Wrath of Sue'', [[spoiler:the Doctor has been killed (though regenerated), Spock is BrainwashedAndCrazy, Captain Kirk has been broken by the revelation of his Sue status, and Ensign Sue has been broken by the rejection of her fellow crewmates. Sue Prime gloats at the success of her EvilPlan, and the page announces ToBeContinued.]]
* BareYourMidriff: Empress Sue's outfit shows her stomach because of SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:Knowing that the Doctor, Kirk and Spock would try to get rid of her pieces spread all over the Multiverse, Sue Prime created the pokeballs to be able to contain the multiple Sues. She inserted them in the Pokemon Universe so they would be mass-produced, with the cover they were actually for pokémon. When enough pokéballs containing Sues were in the Star Trek universe, she sent Anna Mae, Empress Sue and Sue-verine to free them. With enough Sue power concentrated in the Star Trek universe, they could begin the convergence of all universes, enabling Sue Prime to enter the mundane world without being BroughtDownToNormal. Oh, and she ensured all this would happen by making Khan pass as Sherlock to trick them into enacting her plan.]]
* BigBad: Sue Prime is responsible for all the trouble in this fiction and she drives the EvilPlan of the "Sue Anomaly.
* BigNo: Kirk's reaction to [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy]] Spock's claim that Kirk is himself a Sue. Bonus points for the scene being a Franchise/StarWars reference. He gets a second in the opening of ''Ensign Cubed'', when he gets razzed by Empress Sue as he's doing his CaptainsLog for getting in touch with his inner Sue.
* BlackHoleSue: All Sues are theoretically capable of bending everyone and everything in the universe to their perfection.[[invoked]]
* BlatantLies: [[http://www.interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1616 When the Doctor asks Sherlock]] if he's a fan of the "[[Series/DoctorWho long-running]] [[Franchise/StarTrek TV shows]]" he mentioned, Sherlock looks wide-eyed and claims that "a female associate" is a fan. The Doctor replies, "[[LampshadeHanging Of course she is.]]"
* {{Bokukko}}: Anna Mae Sue uses this to refer to herself. Whether played for the cuteness factor or for her butchered Japanese is unknown. Sulu tries to correct her by saying that girls are supposed to use "watashi".
* BrainyBaby: Apparently, even as a newborn infant, Ensign Sue was able to escape the destruction of the ''Kelvin'' with her psychic powers.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy:
** [[spoiler:Sue Prime "re-educates" Spock and corrupts him to their cause]].
** [[spoiler:When Sue Prime created her "perfect" universe, Chekov, Sulu, Uhura and Scotty were also brainwashed. Others taken over include Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog, [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Korra]], Manga/{{Naruto}}, WesternAnimation/DangerMouse, Franchise/HarryPotter, [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail the Black Knight]], and even Music/TheBeatles.]]
** [[spoiler: Wolverine is revealed to have been brainwashed all along, reverting back to normal once Sue Prime is defeated]].
* BrickJoke:
** Remember in the film when Scotty mentions that he lost [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Admiral Archer's]] beagle in a transporter accident? He tries to do the same to Ensign Sue. [[spoiler:[[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1027 It fails, but Sue finds the beagle]]]]. Bonus brick joke for those who've read the {{novelization}} [[spoiler:The beagle shows up at the end of the book.]]
** Early on, Empress Sue is shown to have a fondness for girls, such as Uhura. [[spoiler:Much later, Uhura takes advantage of that to clobber Mirror Sue which allows them to escape.]]
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:When Ensign Sue is brought back to the Star Trek universe, her RealityWarper status vanishes, leaving her merely an incredibly annoying girl.]]
* ButtMonkey: Ever since the Eleventh Doctor was shot [[spoiler:by the Sue-tified Spock]], the [[TheyKilledKennyAgain Doctor's constant regenerations have become a RunningGag.]]
* BystanderSyndrome: One of the reasons Sue is so hard to eliminate is that ''nobody'' wants to have anything to do with her. The worst offense is Starfleet's official response: [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1019 HA HA... HA... HA.]]
* CallBack:
** The universe where Ensign Sue is found in the sequel, "Wrath of Sue" is the same one we saw her end up in the original: ''Franchise/HarryPotter''.
** In the original, Ensign Sue states that she was raised by worms (inside a wormhole!), and that they died as a part of her [[DarkAndTroubledPast tragic backstory]]. In ''The Wrath of Sue'', [[spoiler:The captain [[TheyCallMeMisterTibbs is enraged by her calling him James instead of by his title]], especially because of the crisis she brought upon them, and orders her locked in the brig]]. Her response is "This is worse than when the worms died!"
* CannotTellALie: God Sue said to Ensign that she would never lie to herself. Three strips later, it's revealed that she's physically ''incapable'' of saying anything she doesn't truly believe. [[spoiler:This is especially shocking when she proves incapable of saying she loves Spock.]]
* CanonSue: Natch, since the series is an EqualOpportunityOffender when it comes to the various types of Sues. Sometimes, it's the fanfic writers since they're the easiest, and [[AcceptableTargets most acceptable]], targets, but even ''canon'' characters aren't safe from being skewered in some way:[[invoked]]
** Wesley from Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration.
** [[spoiler:ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} from The Comicbook/XMen. He reverts back to normal after the Sues are defeated]].
** In the ''Sonic'' world, you can see [[WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground Sonia]] above Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}.
** [[spoiler:[[TomatoInTheMirror Possibly Kirk himself]]. Though Denny Crane later reassures him that being exceptional in and of itself is not the mark of a Sue.]]
** Subverted with [[Literature/TheTwilightSaga Bella Swan]]; the pokeball bounces off her.
** Played with in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]]. We see Twilight Sparkle included with a bunch of bad original characters, but we never see if she gets captured or not.
* CategoryTraitor: [[spoiler:Khan calls Ensign Sue a traitor, despite the fact that she only just discovered what was going on and had never been in contact with the other Sues in the first place.]]
* CatGirl: Anna Mae Sue has cat ears and a tail as part of her stereotypical "weaboo" look.
* CerebusSyndrome: The webcomic is still quite silly all the way through but while the first story was just about Mary Sue being put in a world that knows how ridiculous she is, the second story has her going through a HeelRealization and includes moments such as [[spoiler:Wolverine]] stabbing [[spoiler:[[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]]]] in the back, on panel. The third story has continued the trend toward drama, though still with plenty of gags thrown in.
* CharacterDevelopment: [[spoiler:Ensign Sue, after being BroughtDownToNormal, develops traits such as empathy and responsibility that distinguish her as a legitimate character instead of a Sue.]]
* ClaspYourHandsIfYouDeceive: [[spoiler:Sue Prime's pose at the end of ''The Wrath of Sue'' when she declares the success of her EvilPlan]]. It is appropriately sinister.
* {{Cliffhanger}}:
** The end of Chapter 1, where we see that Ensign Sue has died, but she meets Sue Prime, who sends her to the Harry Potter Universe.
** [[spoiler:Then Chapter 2. Empress Sue has the Infinity Gauntlet, Wolverine Sue stabbed the Doctor (who then regenerated into Eleven), Ambassador Spock is frozen in carbonite, Spock has been brainwashed, Kirk is in a HeroicBSOD after being told that he is a CanonSue, Ensign Sue has broken down in her cell after discovering she no longer has Sue powers, and Sue Prime's plan appears to have succeeded.]][[invoked]]
* CloudCuckoolander: The Sues are clearly living in their own little world. The things they do make no sense to anyone else.
* {{Chibi}}: The whole comic is drawn superdeformed. Which, of course, makes everything [[Funny/EnsignSueMustDie much funnier]].
* TheCoatsAreOff: [[spoiler:Khan Prime]] defeats Khan this way. The sheer magnificence of his pectorals does him in.
* CosmeticallyAdvancedPrequel: The Doctor of course knows all about TheAestheticsOfTechnology; ''Next Gen'' has moved beyond the "Lens flare" in "Original Series"
* CrapsaccharineWorld: [[spoiler:Sue Prime's "new universe", Sueranus, is full of pink and gems and rainbows where everyone is forced to be happy and adore her.]]
* CrazyEnoughToWork: [=McCoy=] lampshades Kirk's tendency to invent these type of "kamancy" schemes in a desperate situation.
* ComplexityAddiction: Sue Prime gets diagnosed with this ailment when she explains her plan to the cast:
-->'''The Doctor''': That... seems '''needlessly complex'''.
* CustomUniformOfSexy: Ensign Sue, her mirror self Empress Sue and [[spoiler:Lt. Mary Sue]] for some reason have leather boots and fishnet stockings with their uniforms. [[spoiler: Not wearing one of these is a sign that "Mary Smith" is no longer a sue.]]
* CuteBruiser: While covered in alien blood, Ensign Sue cheerily says [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1029 "They had no honor!"]]
* TheCutie: Ensign Sue is a cheerful and naïve young girl with long blonde hair and blue eyes. The crew finds her more annoying than darling [[spoiler:after her HeelRealization and following CharacterDevelopment.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Naturally, a number of the characters have them, but especially the [[SympatheticSue Sues]].[[invoked]]
** As per {{Canon}} in the ContinuityReboot, Captain Kirk lost his father from the destruction of the USS Kelvin and spent his youth angry at the world. [[spoiler:Spock mentions his tragic past as proof of Kirk's apparent Suehood.]]
** Ensign Sue was ''also'' a victim of the Kelvin's destruction. She was then raised by worms in a wormhole, and then the worms died.
* DarkestHour: The end of ''The Wrath of Sue''. [[spoiler:''Ensign Cubed'' eventually reaches the point where Sue Prime has been freed and created her new sue-niverse, naming it Sueranus, and all that's left is a [[LaResistance resistance group]].]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Spock, unsurprisingly.
-->'''Spock:''' Your ''consummate professionalism'' is nothing short of ''inspiring'', Captain.\\
'''Kirk:''' I hate you, Spock.
* DeconstructiveParody: The premise is basically "What would happen if someone as self-centered, oblivious and powerful as a MarySue showed up on the Enterprise?" and then makes jokes at the expense of both.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: [[spoiler: The First Doctor was exclusively in black and white after all.]] "You're looking a little pale."
* DepravedBisexual: [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1036 Empress Sue loves her Mirror!verse Kirk just like her counterpart but she also makes out with Uhura to prove she is evil.]]
* DevilInPlainSight: [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1508 Chekov's new girlfriend]] looks ''very'' suspiciously similar to Mary Sue, which goes completely over everyone else's heads, [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope but]] it turns out she's not one of them at all. Kirk does question her later on, but [[RedHerring she proves to be innocent of the charge]].]]
* DoppelgangerCrossover:
** [[spoiler: BBC Sherlock and Reboot Khan are both played by Benedict Cumberbach and both are on screen together.]] It's exploited, regarding the fact that [[spoiler:Khan disguises himself as Sherlock in one part of the story]].
** [[spoiler: Denny Crane. The Doctor looks for an "older and wiser James Kirk" but instead has to settle for older and wiser characters played by William Shatner.]]
* DownerEnding: ''The Wrath of Sue'' ends with [[spoiler: the heroes outwitted, imprisoned and/or forced to regenerate while Sue Prime's EvilPlan comes together without a hitch, thus setting up the events of ''Ensign Cubed''.]]
* DramaticUnmask: [[spoiler:Wolverine-sue rips off his mask when he reveals himself as a Sue.]]
* DressedInLayers:
** When searching various universes for Sues in the sequel, Kirk lands in the Harry Potter universe. Upon seeing Kirk, the Sue of this universe rips off her school uniform to show a Starfleet uniform is underneath, revealing that she is Ensign Sue. [[LampshadeHanging Kirk wonders how many layers she wears.]]
** [[Creator/WilliamShatner Denny]] [[Series/BostonLegal Crane]]'s appearance starts with him tearing off a Starfleet uniform, revealing a business suit underneath. He was at a costume party.
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler: Khan Prime]] makes a brief appearance, [[spoiler: vapourising nu!Khan]] and saving Kirk's life, in order to secure his own timeline. It is glorious.
* EurekaMoment: Possibly one of the funniest renditions [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1048 ever]]. Young!Spock ''finally'' realizes who the threat to the universe that his Prime self warned him of is.
* EvilBrunetteTwin: [[EvilCounterpart Empress Sue]] stands out from her Sue sisters for being the only [[PaintItBlack black haired]] Sue among the blondes[[note]]Well, she and Anna Mae, but [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair she's another story]][[/note]]. After all, she's evil.
* EvilTwin:
** Empress Sue is Ensign's mirror self.
** [[spoiler:Sherlock also has one in Khan by way of both being roles of Bendit Cumberpatch.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler:Even Wolverine!Sue thinks that Sue Prime's plan is kind of dumb.]]
* ExpospeakGag: Mary Sue reveals her dark secret to [=McCoy=]: she has pedal transient paresthesia! Which only means her foot's asleep. It also counts as a ContinuityNod to ''Film/{{Star Trek IV|The Voyage Home}}'', where [=McCoy=] uses fancy terms for cramps to get through a hospital with a crewmember feigning illness.
* FacePalm: Repeatedly whenever Ensign Sue annoys someone, more often than not that someone being Kirk.
* FamousLastWords:
** "Hurray! An away mission with my three favorite men. This is the happiest day of my--" Ensign Sue, before going on a mission as a RedShirt.
** "Those pectoral muscles, so real, so magnificent...no! I was so close...so..." [[spoiler:Khan, right before being vaporized by Khan Prime.]]
* FandomRivalry:[[invoked]] The rivalry between the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' and ''Franchise/StarWars'' fandoms is {{lampshaded}} [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1528 when the Star Trek characters end up in the Star Wars universe]]:
-->'''Scotty:''' There's just somethin' ''not right'' with this universe.
* FascinatingEyebrow: Spock, naturally, [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=989 once]] or [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=998 twice]] because several things that are strange or unusual happen around Ensign Sue.
* TheFinalTemptation: Ensign Sue starts to question herself and feel bad after she [[spoiler:[[BroughtDownToNormal lost her Sue powers]]]]. British Sue then shows up to tell her that their Mother will fix that and that she, Ensign Sue, has always been Mother's favorite. It looks like Ensign was about to turn back from her character development, now that she has been informed that she's special again, but [[spoiler:seeing Kirk's HeroicBSOD and [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Sue!Spock]]]] makes her realize that this stopped being about her a ''long'' time ago. [[spoiler: Instead of helping her "sisters", she tries to sabotage their plan.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Parodied. Ensign Sue addresses all the crew members by their first names and is often told to use their last names or official titles. This becomes a RantInducingSlight 2/3rds of the way through ''The Wrath of Sue''.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Kirk
** TheLancer: The Doctor
** TheHeart: Leonard McCoy
** TheSmartGuy: Spock
** TheChick: [[spoiler: Ensign Sue]]
** SixthRangerTraitor: [[spoiler: Wolverine]]
* FlawedPrototype: Ensign Sue doesn't have the [[spoiler:PsychicLink all other Sues share with their mother, Sue Prime, because she was first. She's also the only one to lose her Sue powers, although it's implied the others did as well.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
-->[[spoiler:'''Kirk:''' We don't know if they have '''similar appearances''', but they should all exhibit '''[[RealityWarper reality-warping]] powers'''... Fantastically and unbelievably capable, playing by their own rules with little to no consequence, and doing things that just '''shouldn't''' be possible.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Dr. [=McCoy=]:''' You describing '''yourself''' there, Jim?]]
** Also, in the finale of ''Ensign Sue Must Die'', we see a collection of Sues. Among them, is [[spoiler: Wolverine. He]] is later introduced into the story as an ally. [[spoiler: And then he betrays the cast by revealing himself to be a male Sue.]]
* FreakOut: [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=989 Poor]] [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1056 Spock.]]
* FromBadToWorse: Scotty's reaction to when he beams down Ensign Sue during an ion storm...only to have '''Empress''' Sue beam back with Ensign Sue.
* FunetikAksent: Chekov and Scotty speak with accents differing from the rest.
* GagBoobs: While all the Sues have a "perfect body" by default, Empress Sue's boobs are huge and [[{{Gainaxing}} noticeably]] [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1046 jiggle around]].
* GenkiGirl: Ensign Sue and [[spoiler: all other Sues]] are very cheerful and full of energy.
* GenderBender: [[spoiler:The Doctor's final regeneration takes the form of an alternate 13th Doctor played by Joanna Lumley, from the comic relief parody, Recap/DoctorWhoTheCurseOfFatalDeath. Captain Kirk asks her out, which gets a little awkward after the universe resets and she reverts back to 10]].
* GenreDeconstruction: If MarySue fics can be called a genre. It starts by showing how characters might really react to someone who acts like MarySue, then goes on to show what actually makes someone a MarySue, and what might happen if such a character suddenly lost their Sue privileges. All while maintaining [[RuleOfFunny a healthy amount of humor]], of course.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot:
** Mirror Sue demonstrates how evil she is... by making out with Uhura. When Spock relays the events to Kirk, Kirk remarks that he [[HotterAndSexier likes this Sue better]].
** When Uhura takes advantage of this to defeat Mirror Sue, Chekov calls it "...the best thing I've ever seen."
* GoodColorsEvilColors: Mirror/Empress Sue having black hair and a gray outfit, and regular Ensign Sue having blonde hair and a blue uniform.
* GodOfEvil: Sue Prime is the god of Mary Sues, which means she is the god of shallowness, pettiness, selfishness and poorly written characters.
* GodModeSue: Naturally, Sues can do anything, even things that the WordOfGod for a given fictional universe says is absolutely impossible, like defying AllDeathsFinal. [[spoiler:The leader of the Sues, Sue Prime, is very literally a Sue goddess. When the Sues take over, Spock says that there ''are'' no more rules, and the universe is free of convention.]][[invoked]]
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:Ensign Sue starts to disappear after Prime Sue's defeat. She smiles since everybody she loves is safe now.]]
* GracefulLoser: [[spoiler:The Sues take defeat better than we thought, as Prime Sue recognizes her selfishness and immaturity.]]
* GratuitousJapanese: Anna Mae Sue(-[[UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics chan]]) the Sue of the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' world in ''The Wrath of Sue'' speaks exclusively in sentences with random and horribly broken Japanese sprinkled in. She later contacts the bridge and her mangling of the language angers Sulu.
-->'''Sulu:''' Argh! Her pidgin Japanese is killing me!
* GuyOnGuyIsHot: Despite her attraction to both Kirk and Spock, Ensign Sue still [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1006 had fantasies]] about Kirk/Spock, and was willing to teach them the "ways of hawt yaoi". After all, despite their man love, [[OneTrueThreesome they'll still pine for her]].
-->'''Ensign:''' The only thing better than making out with a hot guy is watching ''two'' hot guys make out!
* HalfHumanHybrid: Ensign Sue is inconsistent about this. It seems either she can spontaneously change species, or she's simultaneously half-human, half-vulcan, half-klingon, half-[[DivineParentage deity]], half-[[Series/DoctorWho time lord]], and half-[[HeinzHybrid basically everything else]].
* HandWave: The in-universe explanation for why [[spoiler:the Doctor's regeneration has become a RunningGag in "Ensign³" (especially how it goes ''out-of-order''[[note]]10 -> 11 -> 12 -> 9 -> 6 -> 7 -> 2 -> 4 -> 8 -> 1 -> 3 -> 5 -> War -> Alternate 13 -> Back to 10[[/note]]). The presence of several Sues in the same dimension is causing the laws of the universe to bend or out right break, which also applies to the rules, lore, and logic the Doctor normally is bound by.]]
-->'''[[spoiler:9th]] Doctor''': We Time Lords are very adept at avoiding that whole "death" thing. [[TheNthDoctor I'm able to change forms when it comes knocking...]] [[spoiler:Though the laws of regeneration seem to have been thrown completely out the window.]] [-[[LampshadeHanging That's nothing new, I suppose...]]-]
* HeinzHybrid: Ensign Sue reaches ''eight'' halves, as she seems to gain a new one every time she meets a new race.
* HeroicBSOD: Kirk breaks after [[spoiler: finding out he just might be another Sue.]]
* HidingTheHandicap: Played with. Ensign Sue claims to have hidden her dreaded "pedal transient paresthesia" her whole life (given that that's a fancy term for her foot being asleep, it probably didn't take much effort).
* HisNameIs: Just as Wesley is about to reveal his findings that will allow them to neutralize the Sues, he gets captured in a pokeball for being a Sue.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Ensign Sue has top marks for phaser use, according to herself, and is supposedly the best shot on the ship. [[spoiler:She loses this ability when she loses her Sue powers, and she finds it somewhat funny and somewhat scary that she could miss.]]
* IAmVeryBritish: British Sue is a mix of every British stereotype [[note]]The "Keep Calm" crown on her purple scarf that goes with her version of Series/{{Sherlock}}'s coat, Literature/HarryPotter's glasses, a pin with the Great Britain's flag, a [[Literaure/SherlockHolmes deer hat]] and wears pearls instead of extravagant earpins[[/note]] in a single Sue character. She also shouts random British references when excited.
-->[[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1604 Roight! Big Ben! Mary Poppins! Cuppa tea! Spam! Spam! Spam! God save The Queen! Pip! Pip! Cheerio!]]
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler:Kirk has one with Sue!Spock. He breaks free with Ensign Sue's help.]]
--> '''Ensign Sue''': [[spoiler:The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the Sue!]]
--> '''[[spoiler:Spock]]''': [[spoiler:Ensign, that is... ''logical''.]]
* InMysteriousWays: Sue Prime's defense when the characters begin to critique her plan is that she works in mysterious ways and they need to "stop trolling me".
%%* InteractiveNarrator
* IntimateHealing: In the first arc, Ensign Sue offers to [[http://www.interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=996 comfort Pavel with her body]] after she makes him cry by usurping his position as youngest Starfleet officer by three days.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Apparently Sue-exposure has [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1510 had some lingering effects on Captain Picard]]. Namely, he turns into a stereotypical fangirl when complimented by "Kirk-senpai".
* LaResistance: [[spoiler:After Sue Prime created her "perfect" world, [[Series/{{Sherlock}} Sherlock Holmes]] rallied what [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] called "[[BadassCrew The most powerful resistance in the multiverse]]", comprised of Creator/BruceLee, [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]], [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Phil Coulson]], [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros Luigi]], Creator/MrT, VideoGame/{{Megaman}}, Pippi Longstocking, [[VideoGame/DuckTales Scrooge [=McDuck=]]], [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]], [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Michelangelo]], [[Franchise/GIJoe Snake Eyes]], [[Anime/SailorMoon Sailor Moon]], Micheal Jordan, Spinks, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Applejack]], [[ComicBook/{{Superman}} Superman]], [[VideoGame/{{Rayman}} Rabbid]], [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Sam and Dean Winchester]], [[Film/{{Hercules}} Hercules]], [[WesternAnimation/SpeedyGonzales Speedy Gonzales]] and SWAT Kats.]]
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: An interesting variation at the end.
-->"Kono bangumi wa [[http://comicalclare.deviantart.com Kurera Mosurii]] to [[http://kevinbolk.deviantart.com Kebin Boruko]] goran no suponsaa no teikyou de o-okuri shimasu."
* LeetLingo: Ensign Sue says she's an expert at dead languages, saying [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1012 W00T, HAXX and PWN]].
* LogicBomb: Logic (or more accurately, criticism) seems to be the Sue's weak spot, especially for God Sue. [[spoiler: Proving that Prime!Spock doesn't love her, and more importantly, that she can't admit to loving him, leads to her downfall.]]
* LoveHungry: ''The'' defining personality trait of the Sues and ''especially'' God Sue is their intense need for the love and approval of everyone around them and their crushes most of all. [[spoiler:This is made more ironic when revealed that she is incapable of loving ''anything'', even Spock.]]
* MarkOfTheBeast: One character asserts that the Sues' beauty marks are in fact the mark of the beast.
* MartyStu: In The Wrath of Sue, it is revealed that Sue does indeed have male counterparts.
** The first one openly introduced is [[CreatorsPet Wesley]] from Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration. [[invoked]]
** Inevitably, {{Webcomic/Sonichu}}.
** [[spoiler: Wolverine, though this turns out to be a case of Sue corruption]].
** [[spoiler: Spock is given this theme after being [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]] by the Sues, though he claims that Kirk is in fact the actual Sue. It takes reassurance from Denny Crane to help Kirk realize that being exceptional in and of itself is not what makes a Sue.]]
* MarySue: The main theme of the series is an exploration of this trope. The trope is {{Invoked|Trope}}, {{Parodied|Trope}}, {{Deconstructed|Trope}}, and overall PlayedWith in many, many different ways. The major Sues are:
** Ensign Sue, a medical officer serving the USS Enterprise.
** Empress Sue of the Terran Empire.
** Anna Mae Sue, the Sue of the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' world.
** [[spoiler:Sue Prime, the BigBad and god of all Sues. It turns out she's the ''[[Fanfic/ATrekkiesTale original]]'' [[Fanfic/ATrekkiesTale Mary Sue]].]].
* MarySueHunter: The basis of ''Wrath of Sue'' is the Enterprise crew and The Doctor hunting down Sues all over TheMultiverse with pokeballs. [[spoiler:They fail as they were played by Sue Prime's plan all along.]]
* MarySuetopia: [[spoiler:Sue Prime's ultimate goal is to merge all of reality into a single universe crafted in the image of Mary Sue; mindcontrolled happiness for everyone and all that exists worshipping her.]][[invoked]]
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: At the very end, [[spoiler:as Kirk wonders upon Ensign Sue, who had to be gradually {{Retgon|e}}ned to return the multiverse to normal, he encounters an ensign on medical staff very similar to her named Ensign Mary Smith. Spock and Captain Kirk both agree that the universe is a very strange place.]]
* MeaningfulName: [[{{Anime}} Anna Mae]], anyone?
* MegaCrossover:
** ''Ensign Two: Wrath of Sue'' is expands beyond Star Trek to many other series. So far, [[Series/DoctorWho the Tenth Doctor]] and Series/{{Sherlock}} have appeared on the ''Enterprise'' and thus far, they have visited the {{Franchise/Pokemon}} world, the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]], the Franchise/DCUniverse, and the "prime" ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration in the 24th century]].

The [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1528 continuation]] has Franchise/StarWars, Literature/{{Twilight}} and Manga/{{Akira}}.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Mirror Sue is ''Empress,'' not a minion, but she isn't very good at being evil. To be fair, Sues are proven to be [[UnreliableNarrator unreliable narrators]] at best, and given the amount of dislike shown to her in the Mirror Universe, she's unlikely to actually be in charge. [[spoiler: She's truly a minion of Prime Sue.]]
* MinorInjuryOverreaction: Gasp! Not ''[[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=998 pedal transient paresthesia]]''!
* MixedAncestry: She's half-Vulcan... and half-Klingon... [[TooManyHalves and half-Russian... and half-Japanese...and half-Deity ... and half TimeLord. Anne May is apparently half Q.]]
* MoeStare: All Sues have this in promotional art, and sometime in-universe. They have mastered it to the point of being a lethal and annoying weapon.
* TheMole: [[spoiler:Wolverine is also a Sue, and ''literally'' backstabs the Doctor]].
* MulticoloredHair: It is a common racial trait for Sues because it supposedly makes me stand out more. Ensign Sue's is [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Pink]] and blonde; see page image. Well, more specifically, [[KaleidoscopeHair pink and blue and purple and yellow and...]] [[spoiler: Anyone who is Sue-ified develops this as a stripe or starburst.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Sue Prime briefly experiences this when she believes herself to have vaporised Ambassador Spock in a moment of rage]].
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: PlayedForLaughs in comics [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1006 8]] and [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1012 9]], with Kirk getting chills down his spine when Ensign Sue and Sulu, respectively, fantasize about him.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Not all Sues are blessed with this trait, but many of them, especially Ensign Sue, are able to [[SuddenlyAlwaysKnewThat spontaneously possess]] powers as necessary. [[spoiler: Ensign Sue breaks down when she finds out that she can't do this anymore.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:The Enterprise Crew kill Ensign Sue, but Sue Prime turns her into a Harry Potter Sue and creates Sues in many other universes. Later, Kirk's frustrated decision to throw Ensign Sue into the brig puts a strain on the relationship between him and the only Sue who was sympathetic and helpful to him.]]
* NoKillLikeOverkill: [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1052 The phasers here have Overkill]], as well as Pocket [[Franchise/StarWars Death Star]] setting.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Sulu reacts exactly how you'd expect a real Japanese person would to Sue's more obnoxious fangirl tendencies, but he himself daydreams about Kirk in a similar way to Ensign Sue's YaoiFangirl mode.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: When we are first introduced to Empress Sue of the Terran Empire, she is just as oblivious as any other Sue, and while a self-described evil doer, her definition of "evil" is entirely composed of style. But when she reappears in the sequel, [[spoiler:she's entirely capable of beating people up on her own and teamed up with the murderous Wolverine Sue]].
* NoYou:
** Kirk's DoubleTake reaction to [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1019 Spock saying he was a jerk]] during the incident that got him thrown off the ship.
** [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1043 After Spock meets his Empress-Sue-universe counterpart]], he realizes that Jim's right. He ''is'' a jerk.
* ObliviouslyEvil: The Sues may threaten the fabric of the universe and gradually warp the minds of everyone around them, but most of them are unaware of this or oblivious to its implications, and Ensign Sue acts guilty when told about it. After [[spoiler:getting BroughtDownToNormal, Ensign Sue becomes significantly less oblivious and prompts confusion from one of her sisters when she asks why their actions are making everyone else upset]].
* OhCrap:
** [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=989 Old Spock actually has a horrified face when Sue first appears.]]
** [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1035 Scotty's priceless reaction]] upon seeing Sue and [[spoiler:Mirror!Sue]].
** The Doctor and the readers in Ensign 2 when we are reminded that [[spoiler: Wolverine is also a Sue]]. Also, [[spoiler:Mirror!Sue has the Infinity Gauntlet]].
* OnlySaneMan: British Sue, being a stereotype of brainy and stern British, is less childlike than the other Sues and her speech pattern doesn't follow any known fandom. Of course, like a proper Sue she is, she also has her gimmicks.
* OtherMeAnnoysMe:
** [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1043 "Jim's right. I AM a jerk!"]]
** [[spoiler:When Ensign Sue grows out of her Suehood, Khan muses "Oh, what it must be like to see reflections of yourself and have these '''childish creatures''' staring back at you..."]]
* OverlyLongGag: When [[spoiler: Khan]] breaks the Doctor's neck, he says, "Aargh! Seriously not funny anymore!"
* OverlyLongName: Mary Amethyst Star [[Fanfic/MyImmortal Enoby]] Aiko [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Archer]] [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Picard]] [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Janeway]] Sue.
* PaintingTheMedium: Sue's thought bubbles [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1605 change color]] [[spoiler:[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone the moment she realizes]] how far Sues have warped reality.]]
* ParallelUniverse: Spock and Ensign travel to the Mirror Universe in order to return Empress Sue to it. [[spoiler:The current Star Trek universe is an alternative universe of the original, created with the reboot; God Sue, unable to enter it herself, send a little piece of herself: Ensign Sue.]]
* ParodySue: Ensign Sue acts in typical over-the-top, self-absorbed and ridiculous Sue fashion with the crew's annoyance at her antics underscoring it.
* PiecesOfGod: [[spoiler:Travelling into the mundane dimension is enough to make Sue Prime BroughtDownToNormal. To bypass this, she sent pieces of herself across the veil. These pieces manifested as the Sues. Most of the Sues are connected to her thoughts. The only exception is Ensign Sue, due to being the first piece made and thus a FlawedPrototype]].
* PlotArmor: This is an explicit Sue power. Ensign Sue inexplicably survives many supposedly fatal events because she is a Sue. [[spoiler:Until she meets a more powerful force: the RedShirt Principle.]]
* PlotHole: Sue's power is capable of creating these in order to make her "perfection" possible. For example, Ensign Sue is the youngest Starfleet officer ever. And yet, just like Kirk, she was somehow a victim of the Kelvin's destruction, even though that ''should'' make her too old.
* PreciousPuppies: Le' Cutest of Beagles.
* PsychopathicManchild: ''All'' of the Sues have a childlike disregard for the extremely dangerous consequences that ''should'' result from their whimsical actions ([[HilarityEnsues which somehow usually don't happen]] thanks to their nature), but Anna Mae in particular takes this to sociopathic levels when she steals the [[spoiler:TARDIS, attacks the X-men, and kidnaps Ambassador Spock, freezing him in carbonite]].
* PsychicLink: [[spoiler:All Sues, save Ensign Sue, share a connection, linking them to Sue Prime's thoughts. This changes with God Sue's final clash with Spock Prime.]]
-->'''[[spoiler:Ensign Sue:]]''' [[spoiler:Mother. If you can hear me.. It doesn't half to be this way. It doesn't have to be really over. I just think it's about time that...]]
-->'''[[spoiler:God Sue:]]''' [[spoiler:[[HeelRealization ...we grew up?]]]]
* PunnyName:
** [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Le Cutest of Beagle]], Ensign Sue's pet dog.
** In the sequel, [[{{Anime}} Anna Mae]] Sue.
* RaisedByWolves: Apparently, Ensign Sue was found and raised by worms living in a wormhole.
-->"And then the worms died..."
* RantInducingSlight: Kirk finally loses it toward the end of the second episode when Ensign Sue [[FirstNameBasis calls him "James"]] one too many times. [[spoiler: The opening to Chapter 3 has Kirk unsure where Sue's loyalty is, or if she's willing to help them in the wake of it.]]
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: Anna Mae Sue directly references the trope when she states that [[spoiler:Ambassador Spock]]'s power level has reached "over 9000 desu!!!" She even has a scouter (however, it doesn't blow up).
* RealityWarper: [[spoiler:This is what makes Ensign Sue go beyond a mere annoyance and present a true threat. Not only does the universe gradually shift itself according to her whims to make her perfection possible, but given enough time, she will warp the minds of everyone around her.]]
* RedShirt:
** [[spoiler:The only possible way to kill Ensign Sue, as the increase in mortality rate is the only concept stronger than her ability to bend reality.]]
** Specifically [[DefiedTrope defied]] later on during the sequel. Only named senior officers go around catching all the Sues because of the likelyhood of this happening along the way.
* ReferenceOverdosed: [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1066 The ending strip]] of chapter 1 has loads of references, including ''Franchise/HarryPotter'', ''Franchise/StarWars'', ''Franchise/XMen'', ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'', ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'', ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' and ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'', [[spoiler:all about to be overcome by Sues]].
* RelationshipSue: InUniverse!
** Ensign Sue clearly sees herself in this light, including asking Uhura to "step aside" from her relationship with Spock and constantly insisting that she and Kirk share a deep love.
** [[spoiler: Sue Prime is "destroying the fabric of the universe just to romance a wrinkled time-displaced vulcan".]]
* {{Retgone}}: At the end of the comic, [[spoiler:all of the Sues fade from existence and everything goes back to normal. All of the characters gradually forget the events of the comic entirely, and Captain Kirk tries to think on Ensign Sue while he still can]].
* TheReveal: That Sue Prime is [[spoiler: Lt. Mary Sue from "A Trekkie's Tale" - the Mary Sue TropeNamer.]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: "[[StealthPun Le Cutest of Beagle]]"
* TheScrappy: Ensign Sue is this InUniverse. Nobody likes her, unless she's been present long enough for her BlackHoleSue RealityWarping powers to take effect. [[spoiler:Once she loses her Sue powers, she gets [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap accepted]] by the non-Sue characters, and one of the villains.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Old Spock leaves as soon as Sue arrives.
* SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains: Sue is sure her mirror self is evil, simply because of her clothes.
* SequelHook: At the end of chapter 1, [[spoiler:Sue Prime brings Ensign Sue BackFromTheDead and spreads Sues throughout the Multiverse]].
* ShadowArchetype: Ensign Sue (after CharacterDevelopment) becomes the polar opposite of [[spoiler:God Sue]] in ''Ensign³''. [[spoiler:Ensign is implied to literally be God Sue's empathy and love, so God Sue (and by extension, the other Sues) are incapable of loving anything and only care about their own selfish desire of ''being'' loved.]] Even their own designs are mirror-like: Ensign's eyes and mark are pink and her hair is purple, her hair is down and she wears the blue uniform; [[spoiler:God Sue]]'s eyes and mark are purple and hair pink, her hair is up in a beehive and she wears the yellow uniform.
* ShoutOut
** The comic contains quite a few ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'' references.
** Pocket Death Star.
** "[[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1043 Gee, Le' Cutest.]] I don't think we're on the ''Enterprise'' anymore."
** Sue explains that [[Film/ThePrincessBride over the last several years, she's built up an immunity]] [[spoiler: to being vaporized by a phaser.]]
** When [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy Spock claims that Kirk is a Sue, the comic is filled with references to ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', particularly the LukeIAmYourFather moment]].
** In the second arc, Anna Mae Sue has a [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Dai-Gurren Brigade tattoo on her shoulder.]]
* SkywardScream: [[spoiler: Kirk's reaction to a brainwashed Spock's allegation KIRK is a Sue, too.]]
* TheSociopath: Anna Mae Sue has become this, revealing that she [[spoiler: froze Spock Prime [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack in carbonite]]]] in the stolen TARDIS, describing it as "kawaii!" She also doesn't even ''try'' to listen to or empathize with others, something not even Ensign Sue was guilty of. This is more evident when the Sues start to [[spoiler:open the gate for their Mother]]: British Sue is giggling, Empress is cackling but Anne May is evil laughing with a ''crazy'' expression on her face.
* SpaceX: Ensign Sue's Spunicorn is "like a unicorn, but it's in space"!
* SpannerInTheWorks: Ensign Sue herself, though with NewPowersAsThePlotDemands, she foils the crew's attempts to get rid of her--though with each new power, they DidntSeeThatComing.
* SparklingStreamOfTears: When [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=991 Sue admits her "horrible" medical condition]].
* StockingFiller: Her uniforms inexplicably has fishnet stockings. Spock even notes it when she shows up.
* SuckinessIsPainful: Sulu finds Anna Mae Sue's GratuitousJapanese bad enough to claim it's "hurting my soul".
* SweetAndSourGrapes: [[spoiler:Subverted with Empress Sue as she vanishes at the end of the third arc.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Empress Sue:''' I was tired of being the '''bad guy''', anyway. Later, losers...]]
* SympatheticSue:
** Naturally, many of the Sues have {{Dark And Troubled Past}}s and some of them have a "[[CursedWithAwesome cursed]]" life. Ensign Sue's response [[spoiler:upon being told that she is the UnwittingPawn of a power threatening the multiverse is regret and shame which reflect her character development away from Sueness]]. [[invoked]]
** A more literal version in how Ensign Sue is the only one of the Sues people can really sympathize with at all.
* TakeThat: A frequent dealer of these.
** [[spoiler:[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Wesley Crusher]]]] gets the treatment that many [[spoiler:TNG]] fans, and possibly [[spoiler:Main/WilWheaton himself]], have longed to give him.
** Inevitably, {{Webcomic/Sonichu}} is amongst the many Sues in Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog's world. Above him is Sonia, who was Sonic's sister in the short-lived ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground''. The sheer number of Sues in Sonic's universe, with some presumably being OCs, scares the crew into running away.
** [[http://www.interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1516 In Equestria,]] it's rather cynically implied that [[spoiler:Twilight Sparkle is [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure now a Sue]]]], and that the Brony fandom is also especially rife with Mary Sue OCs...
*** ...but at least it wasn't as bad as the ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'' universe.
** They also try and fail capturing [[{{Literature/Twilight}} Bella Swan]]. She's [[AntiSue way too dull to even be a real Sue]].[[invoked]]
** [[spoiler:{{Wolverine}}]] is also revealed to be a Sue.
* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: Sue calling the crew by their first names was enough of a Berserk Button to get called out on it by Kirk in ''The Wrath of Sue''. [[spoiler:She stops starting with her HeelRealization in Cubed. Kirk takes it after her apology and plea as a sign of trust.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Kirk:''' You had me at Captain.]]
* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: Romance is a big part of Ensign Sue's motivations, thinking that not only is everyone she chooses in love with her, but they'll have a relationship that conforms entirely to her expectations. Given her [[spoiler:RealityWarper powers in the first installment]], this is a likely consequence of her hanging around too long...
* ThirtySuePileup: Used InUniverse.
** Sue is all 30 rolled into one overenthusiastic package.
** The other variation is occurring in ''Crisis'' with dozens of Sues infesting the Enterprise and planning to take over the multiverse.
* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: The actual Aquaman is delighted when asked to help out with something real. It didn't take long at all to find the superheroine Sue; she was riding a narwhale and showing off.
* TitleDrop: Happens during Chapter 1, when [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1052 Spock realizes that Sue could threaten the entire universe.]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: Ensign Sue is only empathetic Sue due to[[spoiler:losing her Sue powers. It has allowed her to see the reality of the situation and realize that the Sue's plan is not only evil but will not give them what they want anyway.]]
* TomatoInTheMirror: [[spoiler:Spock claims that Kirk is one of the Sues. Kirk's reaction is a BigNo done as a SkywardScream.]]
* TooDumbToLive: Ensign Sue would be this, if she weren't a MarySue. She repeatedly avoids death through NewPowersAsThePlotDemands.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Empress Sue of the Terran Empire actually ''enjoys'' the Agony Booth.
* TooManyHalves: Ensign Sue keeps telling whoever she is interested in that she's half of his/her ethnicity.
* TrilogyCreep: Played with on the promo 'poster' for part three.
--> Everything is a Trilogy now...
* {{Troll}}: Sue Prime accuses this of anyone who points out how needlessly complex and stupid her master plan is.
* TroubledFetalPosition: [[spoiler:Kirk's reaction to learning he's a Sue is curling up because his mind was broken.]]
* TwoPartTrilogy: Part one is mostly self-contained, part two ends on a cliffhanger.
* {{Unicorn}}: Ensign Sue's horned horse "flies at warp speed and farts stardust."
* UnwantedHarem: Mirror Kirk ''really'' doesn't like [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1046 two Sues hanging on him]]. He threatens to maroon Mirror Spock on the ice planet ''again'' if he doesn't get rid of at least one immediately.
* UpToEleven: Spock sets his phaser to "Pocket [[Franchise/StarWars Death Star]]". [[spoiler:[[NoSell It still doesn't kill Mary Sue.]]]]
* UnreliableNarrator: Shown in strip 4, which Sue narrates. Given how she sees things, she's likely doing it all the time.
* UriahGambit: The others try to get Sue killed by throwing her into deadly situations but she survives because of NewPowersAsThePlotDemands coupled with RuleOfFunny.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: [[spoiler:The leader of the Sues, Sue Prime, plans to create a [[MarySuetopia utopia of great power and wisdom]]. Given how annoying and self-centered the Sues are, as well as how much trouble they have been causing, this is a bad thing.]][[invoked]]
--> ''[[spoiler:The dimensions are bleeding together. As they converge, they can be remade; and Mother will remake them into [[MarySuetopia OUR image. [...] A wave of love and rainbow sparkles will cover the universe and the Sue will have total control over this dimension- ALL dimensions!]] [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul Everyone will be SO happy!]]]]''
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Sue Prime has a major one when Spock Prime points out her own inability to love anything is proof her plan to make the multiverse love her is flawed. She snaps, screaming "SHUT UP!" over and over while attempting to vaporize him.]]
* VillainousBSOD: [[spoiler: Ensign Sue curls up in a ball and cries after her HeelRealization.]]
* VillainSue: Invoked with Mirror!Sue, [[PokeThePoodle though her definition of evil is rather weak...]] [[spoiler:Until the sequel, that is...]]
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:The 11th Doctor only appears in four strips (the last one of ''The Wrath of Sue'' and the first three of ''Ensign Cubed'') before he gets shot by Sue!Spock.]] [[spoiler:Later, 12 only gets one and [[ItMakesSenseInContext 9 only gets]] ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext 6/7th]]'' [[ItMakesSenseInContext of one before giving way to 6]].]]
* WhamEpisode:
** The 30th strip of ''The Wrath of Sue'': Spock, the Doctor, and Wolverine board the TARDIS to confront Anna Mae Sue, [[spoiler:only for Emress Sue to appears and knock Spock out with the Infinity Gauntlet and Wolverine showing [[MartyStu his true colors]] by '''stabbing the Doctor''']]. And when Spock gets back to the ''Enterprise'', he's become a Sue.]] HOO, boy...
** The 42nd strip of ''Crisis of Infinite Sues''. Prime Spock ask to God Sue if she ''truly'' loves him. Sue giggles at such silly question and prepare to affirm. [[spoiler:But she '''can't'''. She's physically incapable of lying to herself. This shows that if she's lying about loving Spock, the one she claims to be the one she's doing all this for, then she doesn't love anyone. Then Spock implies that Ensign holds Sue's love and empathy, as her first created piece. God Sue, unwilling to accept the truth, ''shoots a {{kamehame hadouken}} at Spock''!]]
* WhatHaveIDone: Ensign Sue when she realizes that [[spoiler: she will be responsible for the Sues conquering the ''Enterprise''.]]
-->'''Ensign Sue''': Captain...I'm so sorry...
* WhatIsEvil: Ensign 3 begins a debate on what really counts as a Sue (which counts as evil as far as this comic is concerned). As a twist, though [[spoiler: it's a conversation that Denny Crane points out to Kirk that there was nothing wrong with being exceptional and that he is defined by his choices and what he does. At the same time, Sgt. T.J. Hooker talks to Ensign Sue. He tells she is not useless and that she does not have to be exceptional for her to help the people she cares about and that she should be liked for who she is.]]
* WhyDontYaJustShootHim:
** [[spoiler:It doesn't work, Ensign Sue is immune to phasers.]]
** [[spoiler: Sue!Spock]] also averts this by immediately shooting [[spoiler:the Eleventh Doctor on sight, and the Twelfth soon after.]]
* WidgetSeries: Uhura's opinion of any universe where the weird stuff is centered on Japan.
* WingdingEyes: Sue's eyes turn into stars and other shapes.
* WingedUnicorn: All the Sues they find in Equestria; since [[spoiler:Twilight Sparkle]] was seen among them it's implied [[spoiler:she's one too]].
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: All the Sues are as immature, megalomaniacal, and lacking in empathy as they are reality-warping anomalies. [[spoiler: Ensign Sue losing her Sue powers coincides with her development as a character; gaining humility, empathy, and a desire to help her friends because she wants to help her friends and not because she wants them to fawn over her for it.]]
* WolverinePublicity: Literally, {{Wolverine}} joins Spock's team in search for the Sues. Lampshaded by ComicBook/CaptainAmerica himself.
-->"I don't know how things work in ''your'' universe, but if there's a ''team'' around here, Wolverine has to be on it."
* WouldHitAGirl:
** Khan isn't above doing this to a Sue that annoys him sufficiently. [[TooKinkyToTorture Not that she seems to mind]].
** He also doesn't have any qualms about [[spoiler:knocking out Ensign Sue with a punch to the gut]].
* YaoiFangirl: Ensign Sue [[http://interrobangstudios.com/comics-display.php?strip_id=1006 demonstrates that she finds the idea]] of [[GuyOnGuyIsHot Kirk × Spock quite alluring]]. Of course, even in this scenario, she thinks that deep down they'd still pine for her.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Twice in ''Ensign 3''. [[spoiler: Denny Crane explains to Kirk that being exceptional doesn't make him a Sue, it just makes him a bit interesting. Next Sgt. T.J. Hooker then tells Ensign Sue that not being her old definition of special doesn't make her unlovable, especially when she's determined to try and save her friends, also telling her that no one is perfect.]]
* YouAreWhatYouHate:
** [[spoiler:The LogicBomb a brainwashed Spock drops on Kirk is this. The opening to Chapter 3 has Empress Sue razz Kirk during his CaptainsLog, telling him "You're really getting in touch with your inner Sue!" and making him drop a BigNo in response.]]
** [[spoiler: Ensign Sue has begun to dislike Sue behavior now that she has lost her powers and is becoming a developed character. Khan points this out to her, and actually finds it admirable, not liking the Sues himself.]]
* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: Kirk does a CaptainsLog, lamenting all that has happened, only to be interrupted by Empress Sue, who compliments him on "getting in touch with [his] inner Sue." Cue another BigNo.
* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious:
** When Ensign Sue realizes that [[spoiler: the ''Enterprise'' crew will be assimilated and it's all her fault]], she calls Kirk "Captain" rather than "James."
** After [[spoiler: Spock Prime spelled out on how Mary Sue Prime really didn't love him, she lost it and shot a massive laser at him with the intent to destroy him. Everyone, even her, thought he was destroyed and reacted in shock. It's revealed that the laser did not hurt him, but turned him into ''Super Spock''.]] After she tearfully concedes to his logic about how she couldn't love him or the others and is thus a monster, he addresses her as Sue, but corrects himself by calling her ''Mary.'' [[spoiler: It's implied that this is because he has reevaluated her and even says he may have misjudged her. Despite claiming and proving she did not truly love him, she also couldn't will herself to destory him despite wanting to and in fact, gave him the power needed to match her. At her core, Mary Sue Prime loves these characters, albeit not in a traditional, healthy or perhaps even [[BlueAndOrangeMorality understandable]] way. It's this along with Ensign's words that lead to her downfall.]]
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: [[spoiler: God Sue]] doesn't seem to understand what "trolling" actually means. Instead, she appears to mean "criticism".
