Parameters

Top

  • |name = The name the character is most often called or known as, generally simply their first and last name. This should match the title of the article.
  • |image = An image of the character. The image should be of the highest possible quality (i.e. the maximum resolution, if a screenshot of a video). Ideally, the image should either be a relatively neutral portrait shot, such as That Damn Neighbor, or a dynamic pose with the character visible that still captures the essence of the character, like Tom Cruise. Do not alter the image beyond simple cropping, if necessary. If the character has been played by more than one actor or represented in more than one medium (i.e. animation and live-action), use the Tabber tag and put the character images by medium, then by actor, most recent first.
