so sick and tired of people throwing this term around like it has any weight or legitimacy. It's just an excuse to complain about cliches in character development. For some reason, WoW seems to be a favourite target of this "literary term" (using such a title is generous). Rhonin in particular seems to be the biggest offender in its eyes. While I agree he's hardly the most dynamic character, he barely even scores against the standards set for mary-sueism, yet people are insistent he is one of the greatest to ever walk a page.The people who use this term seriously are guilty of using another term, hyperbole. Unfortunately they forgot hyperbole is not meant to be taken literally.
