MLPFIM King by BLACK-HEART-SPIRAL MLPFIM King by BLACK-HEART-SPIRAL
So while out of state i've been doodling very little. BUT after watching a couple of episodes of MLP FIM with the kiddos I started wanting to doodle up a few of my old MLP characters in the MLP FIM style.

So for the moment, I got King and Monocle Sunset. Not sure how they look outside of my laptop right now but hopefully the colors are not that far off.

King is charismatic, manipulative, vain, powerful, and obsessed with gold and riches - If his ensemble didn't tip that off already. Gold, gold, and more gold. His mane and tail shimmer and roll like molten gold. Basically like Celestia's and Nightmare Moon's hair. Just well...gold. Fluctuates in shades. If I could animate I would.

He has a "Midas' Touch" ability alongside quite a few other dangerous powers...that including his ability to shift into another form that is even more powerful. Hint, it's another fantasy critter of monstrous proportions that is obsessed with...gold. Greed. I'm sure that won't be hard to guess considering there have been a few in the show already and one is a main character. Some factors must come into play for him to shift, but once he's at the point - it's pretty much Game over unless his weakness is figured out.

Anywho, King is mine. So yeah, please no takey.

(please don't hurt me no offense and nothing personal)
 Well first of all the bright color irritates my eyes and i don't like bright yellow and there is no multi-colors just one color only in the body
His cutie mark makes no sense to me and he's wearing heavy armor i think he should wear something lighter 
his eye well i am kinda confused about the eye brow its almost like a drag king
Also mary sues suppose to say it only in girls and its kinda weird :/

I don't really see anything Gary Stu/mary Sue about his design persay, since he is supposed to represent gold and greed, I feel that and over the top design really helps get across the idea! I think they called him a mary sue because he seems a bit over powered?

Oh, i'm not mad)
Well, what you described wasn't really Mary Sue persay, more just things you don't like.
Also the cutie mark makes sense when you think about it, a golden crown? I mean he is a greedy king.

Mary Sue, to me at least, is when a character can no longer be challenged. When nothing, no one or anything besides the author themselves can be a problem.
It can also mean troped characters, such as being 'cute and nice but viscous and cruel'
There's a  lot of tropes but that was just one.
