For the Super Sue OC Contest
being held by
The challenge is to create an awesomely awful ultimate Mary Sue, so please don't take this too seriously!
Perhaps the worst Mary Sues are the ones we create when we're too young to know better. Overwhelmed by our enthusiasm and blinded by our love for our favorite show, we give birth to these shining, godlike examples of Sueness, and not until years later do we realize what monsters we created. So here's my "Sailor Sue," an actual
character I created about 15 years ago, based in the DiC dub universe with dashes of the little tidbits about the mystical and legendary "real Japanese version" that I was able to find on the 90s internet. I present to you, Neo Sailor Moon! Sailor Name:
Neo Sailor Moon Transformation Phrase:

rainy days, party poopers, the Negaverse Dream:
to one day be a great Sailor Scout and save the world like her mom and grandmother.Convoluted Backstory
The daughter of Rini and Helios, Serena grew up peacefully in future Crystal Tokyo. Her grandma would often tell stories of the legendary Sailor Moon and her Sailor Scouts, and how they defeated the Negaverse, the Doom Tree, and the Doom Phantom (there was a lot of doom back then!), and she would listen in awe. She wanted to be a Sailor Scout when she grew up! But now that there was peace, there was no need for the Scouts, and she had princessly duties to attend to.
One of her princessly duties was to marry a prince, of course. It was an arranged marriage and she'd never met the prince, but she was happy to marry him for the peace of their kingdom. But on the day of her wedding, her mom's cat Diana had dire news. Sailor Pluto, guardian of time, had received an urgent message from the past. Sailor Moon was under attack by the Negaverse! A new enemy had appeared, and they were too powerful for the Scouts to defeat alone. They needed help!
Without thinking, Serena went to the hall where the Silver and Golden Crystals were kept and took both of them. Upon grabbing the Golden Crystal, it disappeared and a horn appeared on her head, and she suddenly knew she could grow wings or even transform into a Pegasus! The Silver Crystal was still in her mom's old locket, but when she touched it, the locket changed its shape, and suddenly she knew that all she had to do was hold it up and yell "Neo Moon Crystal Power!" and she could transform into Neo Sailor Moon! So she did this, and ran straight to the Time Gate, where Sailor Pluto showed her the way to the past.
She arrived at the end of a terrible battle. All the Scouts and Tuxedo Mask had been turned evil by three powerful Lords of the Negaverse known as Shades; all of them but Sailor Moon, and she was in bad shape. Neo Sailor Moon made her dramatic entrance, giving a speech like her grandmother had told her about, and jumping between Sailor Moon and the Evil Scouts. The power of the Silver and Golden Crystals made a barrier, which gave Sailor Moon enough time to recover and try to heal her Scouts. But the Shades killed them out of anger before she could heal them, and Sailor Moon was devastated. She no longer had the will to go on, and handed her wand to Neo Sailor Moon.
When Neo Sailor Moon touched the wand, it suddenly changed into the Moon Angel Puzzlebox, which had been its true form all along (but only she had the power to unlock it). She valiantly fought the Shades, but it was her first fight and they were very powerful. They were ready to strike her a death blow, but suddenly one of them turned against the others! He had become entranced by the purity and beauty of Neo Sailor Moon, and had fallen in love with her. He stood by her side and offered to lend her his power. With their power of love, they defeated the Shades and banished them to a far corner of the universe where they could no longer do any harm.
But now all the Scouts were dead, and this meant Neo Sailor Moon's future could never happen! The last Shade, with great sadness, explained that there was a configuration of the Moon Angel Puzzlebox that could set things right; it would rewind time to before the Shades invaded, while keeping them banished from the Galaxy. Only Neo Sailor Moon would remember what had happened, and history would be undamaged. But to use that much of the Puzzlebox's power would drain all the energy from a person, so he offered his energy to atone for what he'd done.
Neo Sailor Moon was in tears! How could she lose him now, when they'd only just met? He simply smiled and said perhaps he would meet her in the future, in his next life. So he configured the Puzzlebox, and set things right. Neo Sailor Moon arrived back in her time, and the past had indeed been saved. But it was still her wedding day... how could she get married after losing her true love?? But she had a duty as a Princess, so she walked down the aisle... and saw her Shade waiting for her at the altar, reborn as a human in her time! It truly was a miracle romance, just like her Grandmother's!
So yeah, that's my Mary Sue. I changed very little about her story from when I made her up in the 90s, and also very little of her design. Here's my original design on poorly edited official art from back in the day:
Only the Pegasus stuff was added, I didn't know about him at that point.
