Categories are lists containing pages that all fit into a certain group. They play an important role in site navigation, and thus must be handled with care and accuracy.

General RulesEdit

  • Make sure to read the category page if you are unsure about placing a category on a page. Some categories have specific conditions that pages must meet before they can receive that category. For example:
    • Category:Children is for characters who ONLY appeared in the story as children.
    • Category:Former Pirates is only for people who stopped being pirates for reasons other than death or capture.
    • Category:Swordsmen is only for people who have actually used a sword; it is not for people who have simply been seen carrying swords.
  • Try to avoid creating overly specific categories that only have very few pages in them, especially if those pages would fit in a more general category that already exists.
  • Categories must be clearly defined. It should be easy to determine whether or not something meets the requirements to be in a category without being speculative.
  • Categories should note major traits. We should not have categories for minor traits, such as hair color, that are superficial to the story.

Matching Pages to CategoriesEdit

Character PagesEdit

These are the kinds of categories that should go on character pages, in this order:

Characters can also receive Category:Deceased Characters if they are dead, Category:Children if they have only been seen as children, and Category:Mentioned Only Characters if they have not been seen in the story yet.

Parent CategoriesEdit

Parent Categories are categories that contain category pages. By doing this, anything categorized under a more specific subject can also be categorized under a general subject without having redundant categories. For example, everyone under Category:Straw Hat Pirates is a pirate, and so that category page is given Category:Pirates. Thus, by putting the Straw Hat Pirates category on a page, the subject will also be categorized under Pirates.

In order for a category page to be given a parent category, every page in that category must also belong in the parent category. Thus, you cannot make Category:Devil Fruit Users a parent category of Category:Big Mom Pirates because not everyone in the Big Mom Pirates is a Devil Fruit user.
