 Last night, my Dad was watching the news, and during the preview, they talked about the “game that was taking over the world.” And of course they were talking about Pokemon Go. But my Dad said, “Oh, that must be the one with the thrones!” 

I explained that Game of Thrones was a book/TV series, and not a real game. He laughed and said, “well, you can tell I’m an expert on these things!”

 James Bond is traditionally one of the most iconic male fantasy fulfilfment characters. But the times I’ve seen him referred to as a ‘Gary Stu’ have been very, very few. However, a lady onscreen only seems to need one talent or positive trait to be labeled a ‘Mary Sue.’ Usagi, Rey and Katara are just a few prominent examples. 

The amount of times I’ve seen a female character referred to as a Mary Sue, far, far outweighs the times I’ve seen male characters called Gary Stu’s.
