From Pikmin Fanon


To do: Optimize the template's [icon] placeholder functionality so pages with many instances of this template aren't categorized as pages with too many expensive parser functions. Oh yeah, and so "File:Icon.png" isn't the most wanted page ever.

This template shows the icon of a subject, with the icon linking to said subject. You can also have it quickly give a link to the subject in plain text, right after the icon.

All icons of canon enemies, plants, and Pikmin will have a game title in front of their filenames (i.e. P2 Pellet Posy), so specific appearances may be chosen. This may also apply to fanon icons of the same kind (i.e. PWW Green Pikmin).


Parameter Mandatory Default Purpose Detailed description
1 Yes Subject Name of the subject's article.
2 No Text link If this has a value, like "y", the subject's name will also appear behind the icon, with a link to the subject's article.
3 No 20px Size Use this to set the icon to a size of your liking.
v No Version If there is more than one version of the subject, use this parameter to specify it. This is valid for icon filenames that follow the following pattern: "<version> <subject> icon.png".
v2 No Alt version If the image you want has another modifier in its title, specify it here.
l No Link If the link to the article is different from the icon's name, specify it here.
n No Display name If you want a different display name for the text link, specify it here.
nosize No Ignore "size" If this parameter has a value, the icon size will not be changed from the original.
