I got really high, and i think my character is very un-suish O_o he's the protagonist for a story I'm writing so he has a couple of special things about him, because well main characters do, but I would consider him quite unusual really XD lulz I think if you did this test on any protagonist they would all end up as sues tbh, it can't cover every plotline
EDIT: lol i just did this test while thinking of Edward XD and obviously there were lots of questions i had to skip because i dont know how arakawa sensei thinks or how the story will end obviously, but on the ones i could awnser he got 50!!! (and i did it as honestly as i could) this test is just dumb, as i said i bet any main character would get insanley high scores

^ main characters probably would get high scores because they kind of are sue-ish XD I mean...we love them anyway but Ed, Ichigo Kurosaki, Naruto, Allen Walker, etc would probably all score pretty high because the hero is always special. Not that it's necessarily bad.
Mine got a 17 :3 I'm pretty happy with that. Although the test can't really account for context I think it's still a pretty good tool to use as a loose guideline for writing OCs :>

Tried doing the test for Ed, based on his traits and characteristics in the manga. He scored in at 22. That's not too bad, eh? And I think I could have scored lower If I had been even more restrictive with the few questions that I was slightly uncertain about ^^

Meh. The test is kinda bull. I purposefully picked interesting characters that I like, and they mostly scored higher. Whereas, when I picked boring/normal characters, they mostly scored lower.
I don't think a test can really determine a good character. Good characters depend on a combination of development, personality, and strengths and flaws. It's partly instinctive and partly a lot of hard work, and no test can really judge that. (Although my issues with the test may stem from my extreme loathing of the term 'Mary-Sue'. )

My OC got an 18. Not bad, not bad...
Ya know, I actually really liked this test. It's very thorough and well thought out. It's funny... I bet people who score high would probably get mad and be like, "No way, my character's SO not a Mary-Sue!" But let's get real. I've read far too many Sue-ish OC fics. My friends and I will actually stumble upon one every once in a while, and let me tell you, we get a LOT of laughs out of it xD
Believe me, I'm not hating on other people's OCs. OCs are awesome. I'm just saying that there are plenty of people who make Sue-ish characters and may not even realize it... and it's a little silly ^^;
Anyway, I thought this was a good test and a helpful guideline. Plus I'm glad that my OC's not a total Sue

I only got a 5 for my OC in FMA RP- the beginning of a journey, but that's cause he's not special at all, he's like a ling without the epic fighting skills and determination and goal, but has good alchemy skills, not exceptional though, and lets other people do the saving (though i plan to make him play a key part at one point)
