Is Tenchi Masaki a Mary Sue?
>>
Self inset power fantasy which is alright by me.
>>
he's a harem protag

so yes
>>
>>101240389
I wouldn't say so. But he is a Godmode Protagonist.
>>
>>101240996
Technically he IS god.
>>
No, because he is not a girl.
>>
>>101240389
technically no. he's an author surrogate. there's a difference
>>
He NEVER wanted to awaken Ryoko and start off the OVA series.
He ONLY wanted to go to school one morning and didn't expect Mihoshi and Ryoko to suddenly jump start the TV series.
He never asked for everyone to crash land on his lawn to start the In Tokyo series.

No, but Kenshi is.
>>
>>101240389
He's a Gary Stu.
>>
>>101241652

but not all author surrogates are Mary Sues/Gary Stus
>>
No. The problem with normal-guy shows is that the male protag is normal, as opposed to something outstanding. Tenchi, despite all the Juraian bullshit, is just a normal highschool kid. If none of the girls had shown up and brought their baggage along, he would have happily lived out the rest of his days living a normal life. The entire series is basically Tenchi trying to have a normal life, or trying to get back to some semblance of normalcy when shit hits the fan.

The fact that he is/becomes a literal god doesn't actually make him a Stu.

Not really. It was his upbringing that made him like that. In Tenchi's case he's the avatar of a god.
