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

Use this template if you are making an reference to a series that has an article on this wiki and if applicable, the chapter or episode. The first parameter is the Short Name of the series, although you may use full title of the page if you do not know it (see below). The optional second parameter is the chapter or episode number. For example if the event described in a paragraph happened in episode 1 of Mobile Suit Gundam type {{ref|MSG|1}} and the following appears: [1]

"Mobile Suit Gundam Episode 1 Gundam Rising" is added to the bottom of the page, linking you to the series' and episode's article. The name attribute in the reference tag is the same as the shortname of the series with the chapter or episode number. The name attribute of {{ref|Mobile Suit Gundam|1}} will be "MSG1".

If two works have the same English Title (e.g. an anime adaptation of a manga or vice versa) but practically different page names, both will display their English Titles properly and link to the correct article, assuming their Short Name properties are different.

Type {{ref|MSGTO|1}} {{ref|MSG ORIGIN|1}} and the following appears: [2] [3]

Both begin with Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin but link to the manga and its first chapter, and the OVA and its first episode, respectively.

If the concept of chapters or episodes is not applicable to the work, then leave the second parameter blank and it will just link to the series. Typing {{ref|GSD FP}} and the following appears:


"Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny Final Plus: The Chosen Future" is added to the bottom of page, linking you to the television special's article.

If episodes of a series are referred to by a different terminology or in special formats, it will display properly. {{ref|SEED|01}} causes the following to appear. [5]

"Mobile Suit Gundam SEED PHASE-01, False Peace" is added to the bottom of the page, because "Episode #" in that television series is written as "PHASE-##".

You may use the same reference multiple times, but you should use the template with unique parameters (short name and number) once and then any further uses should use the short name and number concatenated in the name attribute of an actual ref tag.

  • {{ref|MSG|2}} returns [6]
  • <ref name="MSG2" /> returns [6] this is what you should do if you want to cite episode 2 two or more times in the article, only the first citation to that episode should use this template.
  • {{ref|Mobile Suit Gundam|2}} returns [6] which demonstrates that you can also use the full page title as the first parameter if you do not know the Short Name property of the page, but we recommended you use the shorter one.
