Works in conjunction with ChapterVariables, EpisodeVariables, VolumeVariables, and MagazineVariables. New chapters/episodes/volumes need to be added in those pages for Ch, Ep, Vo, and MagCh to work. {{Ch|Chapter 154}} Chapter 154: Justice, Part 1

Template What it does Example Result
Nihongo Used to display Japanese.

By default, Nihongo displays the English name, the name in hiragana/katakana/kanji, and the name in romaji.

{{Nihongo|'''Star Platinum'''|スタープラチナ(星の白金)|Sutā Purachina}} Star Platinum (スタープラチナ(星の白金), Sutā Purachina)
You can change the order of names as well: {{Nihongo|スタープラチナ(星の白金)|Sutā Purachina|Star Platinum|type1=J|type2=R|type3=E}} スタープラチナ(星の白金) (Sutā Purachina, Star Platinum)
Cover All of these are used in the character appearance sections for chapters and episodes. {{Cover}} (Cover only)

1stm {{1stm}} (1st mentioned)

Shadow Adds a shadow to text. {{Shadow|I am the Ultimate Thing}} I am the Ultimate Thing
! / !! Creates a pipe (|) or two (| |).

I doubt the average wiki editor would need these, but it's necessary if you're creating advanced templates using the if parser function. {{!}} has to be placed within those functions instead of regular pipes. I'm not sure why {{!!}} is needed, but including it here anyways.



| |
- Functions the same as <br style="clear:both;" />. "Clears" both margins. It is often used before a header to make sure that the header will be the full width of the page. {{-}} See the template page for examples.
