YMMV / Ensign Sue Must Die

  • Cargo Ship: The Doctor x the TARDIS. They even get Ship Tease.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The Doctor's initial death in Ensign Two? Tragic. The Doctor repeatedly killed and reincarnating in Crisis? Hilarious.
  • Cry for the Devil: Ensign Sue starting from Episode 2 Strip 27. Stripped of her powers and rejected by the crew of the Enterprise, she finally gets a genuinely sympathetic moment. Then Anna Mae Sue releases her from the brig as the bridge crew are paraded by them in chains, Spock with a phaser behind them being snuggled by Wolverine Sue...
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • Scotty's horrified reaction to Ensign Sue returning to the ship with her evil twin has become a somewhat popular reaction face.
    • Also "And then the worms died...", part of Ensign Sue's tragic backstory, has its own life in the fandom.
  • Moe: The chibi artstyle is quite endearing.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Almost all of the Doctor's deaths are played for comedy, but two are very disturbing. The first, where he's stabbed in the back by Wolverine and when he dies by Khan's hand when Khan twists his head all the way around to break his neck.
    • The reveal of the sue-ified Spock was mildly creepy. Sue-ified Chekov, Sulu, and Uhura were scary. Sue-ified Korra and Sonic the Hedgehog? Outright terrifying!
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Crisis Of Infinite Sues delivers an unusual version of Be Yourself. Don't be ashamed to be exceptional, since it doesn't matter how you got that way or what you can do, but what choices you make. Don't be ashamed to be ordinary, since no one is perfect or expects you to be, and you can still do good things without being the best. People will respond to who you are and who you prove yourself to be; undercutting yourself or overreaching yourself only does harm.
    • It also slams home the idea of altering people to make them love you means that it's not really them who love you anymore, and you'll have to live with the fact that people only like you because you forced them to.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: God Sue seems to share her opinion about Zachary Quinto being Spock as some of the fandom does, as she refers to him as "younger, less sexy Spock".
  • Uncanny Valley: Some of the characters seen as Sue-ified due to their changes. Korra, who's been made much skinnier, is particularly creepy looking (not to mention that her stance is eerily similar to how she looked when Tarrlok used Bloodbending on her).
  • Unpopular Popular Character: Ensign Sue. She's difficult to hate because she's comedic and just so... flippin'... cute! It's like trying to hate a 5-year-old playing make-believe. Her later Character Development makes it hard for even Kirk to hate her later.
