Real World References

Real world references are not supposed to be in any section other than trivia. As Kaido said we should remove it from anything that is like that. SeaTerror (talk) 20:53, November 24, 2018 (UTC)

I didn't say that. I find it silly to remove descriptions like "shimada" from appearance sections. It's not like it specifically references something that would only be in the real world, like calling Kaido a Chinese Dragon. If you remove something like that, you go down a slippery slope of not being able to use any words or terms that haven't been mentioned in OP. Has the word "braid" ever been used in the series? If not, by your logic, we would not be able to say that a character wears their hair in a braid. Kaido King of the Beasts (talk) 21:03, November 24, 2018 (UTC)

A braid would be a generic description. Linking to a real world one is completely different. SeaTerror (talk) 21:05, November 24, 2018 (UTC)

Except a braid is still a real-world term. Slippery slope. Kaido King of the Beasts (talk) 00:03, November 25, 2018 (UTC)
