Mandalorians aren't Mary Sues because of their fighting prowess, they're Mary Sues because in Karen Travis' writing they can do no wrong. They are without any character flaws, they're always shown to be right and superior to their enemies and the Jedi, their culture is portrayed as perfect, etc.

A Mary Sue is not an invincible character, but rather a character who is shown to have no flaws. They may die from time to time, but as a culture and society, Karen Travis attempts to portray them as perfect, which is aggravating to those of us not wearing Mando-tinted goggles.
