MLP How Not to make a Sue by wthdude1plz MLP How Not to make a Sue by wthdude1plz
NOTE: PLEASE READ ==> Lol. I'm flattered, but I don't have the time, patience, or fortitude to look at your OCs and tell you how to fix them. xD Just read up on the tutorial and compare your OC with what we're saying.

Full view to really be able to read it. VERY TEXT HEAVY.

A collaborative effort between myself and my good friend :icongoldenkitsune-queen:*Goldenkitsune-Queen

This here, boys and girls, is how to make a decent, My Little Pony OC, while keeping away from the things that make them total Marysues. We see far too many examples of just plain BAD characters, and so, we made this. Use the information here as a sort of guideline when creating your OC.

I know it's very text heavy, but the info is good and something to really keep in mind when making your OC.

I did most of the writing, with a few pointers and much help from *Goldenkitsune-Queen and a few others in the :iconmlpfim-crystalview: group I run.

:icongoldenkitsune-queen:*Goldenkitsune-Queen is responsible for the wonderful illustrations and, again, a big help on the text based content as well.

Special thanks to :iconkuurokaze:*Kuurokaze who proof read my giant text wall of typos, misspellings, forgotten words, and generally badly written mess. <33

pfft, that last panel-y thing~
Thanks for making this! It is a good guide. I am pretty sure my OC's pass. Buuuuuuuuut then again I have really weird OC's so it is kinda hard to tell

That's quite the oddly specific thing you're denying, Grapeford...

God bless you for making this post! Honestly, everyone in the fandom
needs to place their OC side-by-side with the 'wthdude test' and see if
their pony fits the criteria. I personally think the first step on this sheet
should be "don't even contemplate creating an alicorn!", but I think I'm
just being stingy @ n @. Honestly though, this is an excellent guide and
I'm excited to say that my OC passed! Hip-hip hurray!
What the, Why would Rarity,Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy have a crush on THAT thing?
