Rey most definitely.
Erza Scarlet is up there. If I understand the definition right.
Reasoning: her last big fight. In that, her mother Eileen, who is stronger than God Serena, who is much stronger than Erza's friend Jellal, who's stronger than Erza, turns into a dragon and one shots Erza. She then summons a meteor stronger than a meteor Jellal can summon. Erza, with literally every bone in her body broken save her arm, proceeds to shoot herself into the meteor and one shot it. Then she one shots her mother.
If Gary Stu's count, a character named Natsu Dragneel from the same series can one shot people immune to magic by using magic and kill an immortal that can reverse time after total obliteration of his body.
The Alvarez arc was the freaking worst.
Rick Sanchez is one for sure.
He is a walking plot device who can beat nearly anyone in his path simply because he is that intelligent. He masters almost everything that he does instantaneously with no practically no effort. Rick treats just about everyone he comes into contact with like trash and regularly goes on mass murdering sprees. He teaches his grandson many life lessons like how he should drop out of school, love is a lie and that nothing matters. He does this all the while having people listen and agree with whatever he says for the sheer reason that he is the one who said it. On top of that, Rick is painted as being a deep and complex character who everyone should automatically fall in love with. And if you don't like him, then you are a moron. In other words, he's basically a prime example of the Batman stereotype.
It is absolutely Rey. She was a walking plot device who did everything perfectly and when she didn't, the Force made her do it perfectly. When you relate more to Sidious than you do the main star of the new movies, there is a serious problem...
@yassassin: Really? If we just look at his in-canon first appearance, a young boy created a highly advanced protocol droid with spare parts. Said to be potentially stronger than Yoda. Won a pod race with a ship he also built from scrape and aided(greatly I might add) in a space war he had never fought in. In a ship he had never flown before. There's probably more just from his youth that I overlook. Am I wrong?
Mary Sue/Gary Stu are just buzzwords when you can't articulate why you don't like a character (and in some very rare cases, to articulate why a character is actually badly written). There's no actually agreed upon definition of it because it's just some buzzword. People are just lazy and prefer to say this buzzword instead of an actual argument and then pretend like it's enough and they repeat it until the other person gives up or they just leave after saying it the first time.
