[GIVE A CHARACTER A RANDOM HARMLESS TRAIT SOMEONE HAPPENS TO HATE (Fanfic Flamingo) ‘THAT’S A SUE TRAIT!”]
I’m not talking about things like “So Beautiful It’s a Curse” or things that are actually bad writing (like the character taking the canon’s place or wrapping the universe around them like a cozy blanket).   Things that…well actually are Sue traits. What I mean is when someone has a trope or trait that they for whatever reason just can’t stand seeing, but the trope really isn’t bad all by itself if done right. Like say, Cloud Cuckoolander, the Pretty Boy, the scatterbrain that’s brilliant at that one thing but just a ditz at most everything else , the book-dumb but street smart character, or the badass girly girl. 
The thing is that some things just annoy people.  But that doesn’t mean a character who possesses that trait  or  is that certain type of character is a badly written character. Like if a person doesn’t like kid characters,  and there is a kid character who plays a part that doesn’t mean the kid character is a bad character.    Sometimes,  characters just rub you the wrong way.  The author isn’t obliged to change a character because they just irk you.
