In addition to adding images via Edit on a page, images may be uploaded onto the wiki via Special:Upload.

Uploading of images[]

Official Images[]

When uploading images, licensing templates and categories should be added to them, so remember to:

    • From the {{Template:Fairuse}} licensing, ensure that the {{Fair use rationale}} is added to every image that is uploaded. If images are come across that do not have the template, be sure to apply it. For sourcing, please use {{Image source}}.
  • Remember to add the proper categories to the image after uploading. For example:
  • All images on wiki article pages must be official (manga, anime, light novels, illustration books, fanbooks, etc).
    • Both Japanese and English text is allowed in print images, where all text must be done by official publishers.
    • Anime screenshots are best without any subtitles or trademarks on them.
  • Images that are uploaded but do not have a purpose, or are unused may be deleted if they are unable to be added to articles.
  • If any uploaded image is left unused for around a week, it will be marked for deletion (that is unless the user has something planned for the image).

Fan Art[]

Where wiki articles are to feature officially created images from the Seraph of the End manga, anime, and so forth, fan art is suitable in user areas such as:

Image names[]

Before uploading, be sure to give an image a proper name. A legible one is much better than a random numbers and letters title! Names of characters in an image title is helpful for search engine optimization (SEO) purposes. Where the image is from also makes a good title as it can help viewers find the scene in the source material:

    • Yu, Mika, Episode 1 – Screenshot 1 for images from the anime.
    • Mika, Yu - Chapter 1 – Page 1 – Panel 1 and so forth if a panel from the same page is used for images from the manga.
  • Descriptions placed in {{Template:Fair_use_rationale}} are ideal to add underneath to provide an explanation of what is occurring in the image, as with this cover image example.
  • To change an image name, next to the EDIT option is a dropdown menu where Move will allow for a rename.
    • To save on redirects, it is better to have the new image name added to source mode on every page it appears in, and then have the redirect deleted for neatness.

Duplicate images[]

  • If there is a copy of an existing image, it would be deleted. If two separate accounts uploaded an identical image, the earlier one would remain.
    • Before uploading a photo, be sure to check if the image already exists on the wiki.
  • File history on an image allows higher quality versions of the image to be uploaded. Found a higher quality version of an existing image? Select:
  • Upload a new version of this file

This makes for a good collaboration is key effort, preserves contributor history, and saves duplicate images having to be deleted.

What images are best[]

  • Images in .png format are best.
  • Be sure that the images are of high quality.
  • Images that are against Fandoms terms of use would be deleted, note that the uploader of such content is able to be global blocked across all wikis.
  • Anime images should be the full screen.
  • Manga panels are best with certain scenarios cropped, a whole page should not be included unless it is one scene.
  • Manga panel borders on the side should be trimmed off. Where images are to be added to articles, as space is important, it should be a full scene of the character and environment, rather than blank spaces on the side.
  • The subject matter of the image takes priority over borders. In this image Yu's face has not been cropped to be inside the border, he's outside of it so the whole scene of him is included. The same with this image, yes there's a diagonal line at the bottom, but the in-universe environment on the left takes priority so is included.


  • Add images where appropriate, the same image can be in a character and episode gallery for example.
  • Pictures that are the .gif format are suitable on image gallery pages. They are best on character pages for key transition instances: Mika's eyes changing from blue to red, to weapons being conjured, present in their ability section.
  • Images may be sized, and can be set left or right, whichever makes for the best visual appearance.
