Triforce Wiki:Naming

From Triforce Wiki, a The Legend of Zelda wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Triforce Wiki's naming policy is largely the same as Super Mario Wiki's.

Naming hierarchy[edit]

The article title must be chosen based on the following priority list, sorted from highest to lowest priority:

  1. In-game
  2. Manual
  3. Strategy guide
  4. Nintendo Power
  5. Website
  6. Other merchandise (if applicable)

The {{conjecture}} template should only be used as a last resort, if a source for the name cannot be found.


If a name is not in-game, the user must create a reference to an official Nintendo source where they found the name. This also applies for events that are not shown in game, especially the backstory for earlier games, which can be found in the game's instruction manual. If a subject's name was changed in a newer release, the page should be moved accordingly.

  • Example: '''magical shield''',<ref>''The Legend of Zelda'' instruction booklet, page 20.</ref>
  • More than one reference from the same type of media is allowed on an individual game basis. The latest game should have its reference listed first.
    Example: '''magical shield''',<ref>''Zelda II: The Adventure of Link'' manual, page 12.</ref><ref>''The Legend of Zelda'' instruction booklet, page 20.</ref>
