Mary Sue is a character who is obnoxiously competent and receives a disproportionate amount of the spotlight. Although the term comes from fanfic, it is often applicable in rpg contexts. Such a character may be the fantasy of a power-gaming munchkin or a GMPC who becomes an avatar of the acting-out GM.
