For a list of templates used on this wiki, please see Category:Templates.

This is not a comprehensive description of all templates on the wiki. Please see the individual template's pages for more detailed information about how to use it.

Notable categories of templates on the wiki include:

  • File message boxes - message boxes ("banners") for conveying important messages to the user (see below)
  • Infoboxes - infoboxes to display information at a glance on a topic (characters, games, etc)
  • Navigation Templates - navigation boxes for everything you can imagine

Notification Templates

These are typically banners meant to convey information to the reader. The most versatile of these is {{Incomplete}}, which marks a page or a section as incomplete.

For all of the different types of messages that this wiki supports, please see Category:File_message_boxes.

General Purpose Templates

These templates can be found on many pages and are useful to know how to use.

Template Code Shows On The Page As
Template:H {{h|highlight me}} highlight me
Template:Squiggly
{{squiggly|Lots of         text f   Arakune}}
Lots of         text f   Arakune
Template:Quote {{quote|This is a quote from a character.}}
Character quote here!
Template:Gallery Section {{Gallery Section|Category One|Category Two|Category Three}}

For birthday art with Ragna in it, drawn by Toshimichi Mori:
{{Gallery Section|Ragna the Bloodedge|Birthday Art|Mori, Toshimichi}}

Template:H is used sparingly. Within quotes and translated text, it is used to highlight words from the original text that appear in brackets. On other pages, it is used to highlight for example aliases or important items on a page that should stand out (i.e. the name of a character's Drive).

If you are unsure, simply leave the word in '''bold''' instead.

Template:Squiggly is used to display Arakune's text with all of its spaces intact. If you try to write multiple spaces without this template, it won't appear correctly on the page (extra spaces will be lost).

Specific-Use Templates

Gameplay Templates

Templates categorized as Gameplay Templates are templates that are used on the gameplay subpages of a character (i.e. Ragna the Bloodedge/Gameplay)

Gameplay Disambiguation

Template:Icon_Grid_(Gameplay) links to gameplay subpages (Ragna the Bloodedge/Gameplay/BBCT) on pages like Ragna the Bloodedge/Gameplay and looks something like this:

{{Icon Grid (Gameplay)|Jin Kisaragi
  |BBCT=yes
  |BBCS=yes
  |BBCP=yes
  |BBCF=yes
  |BBTAG=yes
  |BBDW=yes
}}

You can remove icons for each game by changing the yes to a no, or by removing the row entirely.

Command Lists

Command lists appear on pages like Ragna the Bloodedge/Gameplay/BBCT (or for collaboration characters like those appearing in BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, on their main page e.g. Yu Narukami)

The template for a command list looks something like this:

{{Command List
| drive    = 
  {{Command List Row
    | EN     = 
    | JP     = 
    | romaji = 
    | input  = 
    | input2 = 
    | desc   = 
  }}
| od       =
| specials =
| dd       =
| astral   =
}}
{{Command List (BBTAG)|type=
| smart_combo = 
  {{Command List Row
    | EN     = 
    | JP     = 
    | romaji = 
    | input  = 
    | desc   = 
  }}
| cmd_normal  =
| specials    =
| reversal    =
| skills      =
| extra_skill =
| distortions =
| dist_duo    =
}}

Each {{Command List Row|...}} represents one command in the command list. For further details and examples of how to use the command list templates, please see Template:Command List Row.
