Template documentation (for the template shown above, sometimes hidden or invisible)

This is an infobox template for characters.

Usage

Syntax

Paste the following at the top of the article:

{{Character infobox
<!-- insert parameters -->
}}

Parameters

  • Required parameters must be filled out upon the creation of a page or as soon as possible after the creation of a page.
  • Suggested parameters are important parameters that generally should be filled out, but may be omitted for minor characters.
  • Optional parameters may be omitted entirely if not enough information is available.
title1
Optional. Main title of the infobox. Defaults to the name of the current page and generally should not be filled out without sufficient reason for the infobox title to differ from the page name.
image1
Required. Image displayed under the main title. Not required for characters with no on-screen appearances.
Please refer to the Manual of Style when selecting/uploading a character portrait. The relevant section is as follows:

Images that reside in the infobox should preferably be named (Character Name) Profile.png, eg. "Kazuma Kiryu Profile.png" so that it is easier to search when creating character lists for specific games.

  • Lossless .png is the preferred format for all images on the wiki.
  • The preferred aspect ratio for all screenshots is 16:9.
    • The only exception to this are the infobox portraits for Yakuza series side-characters or Judgment characters, which are in 5:6.
In addition to the guidelines listed, it is preferred for the character to be displayed in a neutral front angle, if possible. The image should be neither zoomed in too closely on the character's face (to the point hardly anything else is in the frame) or zoomed out so far that the details of the face are difficult to make out.
Additionally, please utilize <gallery></gallery> tags for characters that appear in multiple games. Examples can be seen in on these pages: Kazuma Kiryu, Goro Majima, Haruka Sawamura.
