* Gelbooru: Hosts much of the same stuff as Danbooru (in fact, the site automatically grabs everything that gets uploaded to Danbooru, with the exception of images that are of very large size), but has no qualms about showing more objectionable content right out in the open. Also has no qualms about more objectionably ''bad'' content, as images rejected by Danbooru as crap will usually be acceptable to Gelbooru. Doujinshi and artbook scans are prohibited, even though (unlike Danbooru), Gelbooru does ''not'' have a policy of removing images at the artist's request. In addition to artwork, also features photos of Japanese cosplayers and pornstars. Has a strict Japan-only policy, unlike Danbooru which features some Western artists. Very much NSFW due to the blatantly pornographic pop-up ads and banners on the site.

** [[JustForFun/DerpibooruCommunity Derpi]][[http://derpiboo.ru/ booru]] [[PassingTheTorch is taking up the torch of Ponibooru]] with most of the images and fans moving there. It is considerably close to ''Blog/EquestriaDaily'' in terms of fandom popularity. Currently one of the most feature-laden pony 'boorus, it features ''both'' Image spoilering and hiding for filtering purposes, tag watchlists, and the ability to directly retrieve and upload images from some websites like Website/DeviantArt. Unlike the latter pony boorus, neither Derpibooru or original Ponibooru hosted Shockwave Flash files and both are also known for (over)allowing meta posts. Derpibooru has recently added forums (to phase-out aforementioned meta posts) and embedded livestreams to its list of features.

An Image Booru is a new breed of Website/ImageBoard and is essentially a tag-based image archive. The name is derived from Danbooru (which means cardboard box), which was the first booru site. Most of the current ones are based loosely around anime. Because the idea is still relatively new, there are not that many of them around compared to standard forums or more traditional imageboards. These sites cater to those who want the {{Pixiv}} experience, but don't feel like sifting through Japanese. A very large majority of the images you see on boorus came from {{Pixiv}} first.

Image Boorus often differ from Website/ImageBoards -- but are still closely related -- by nature of simply viewing many images and occasionally commenting on them as opposed to starting a comment thread with an image and continuing in the same thread with more images. The main advantage over Image Boards is that the images remain in place indefinitely unless deleted by moderators, whereas on an Image Board this is rarely the case. Because Image Boorus also have much the same attitude regarding censorship that other Website/ImageBoards have, the content of many boorus is NotSafeForWork. Administrivia/YouHaveBeenWarned.

! Notable Image Boorus
* Danbooru: The very first booru, dedicated to anime and video game images, whose name comes from the Japanese word for "Cardboard Box." Many of the site's images in question come from Pixiv, including many {{Doujinshi}}. Site content is given three major ratings, ranging from Safe (non-explicit images, though not always genuinely [[NotSafeForWork safe for work]]; bear in mind that bikini and lingerie images are usually "Safe"), Questionable (a bit racy, but not explicit; for example, exposed breasts), and Explicit (sexually explicit images). When doujin pages are hosted on the booru, people are usually on hand to translate the Japanese or other language for better reading by English-speakers. The most objectionable content is such that users have to pay for the privilege of viewing it, or who were invited by the staff (which is distinctly less common now than in Danbooru's early years). The main rule the site follows in regards to images is no live-action or real-life explicit content. NotSafeForWork. Danbooru has a multi-tiered membership system, with various levels above basic membership but below moderators and administrators coming either by paying or because the staff likes you. The latter type of upgrade is sometimes granted simply to the staff's friends, but mainly as a reward for helping out the site (ie a history of consistently uploading good images, fixing tags and/or translating doujins and 4koma). Danbooru is not to be linked to on this site at this point in time due to a history of NSFW ads.
* [[http://safebooru.donmai.us Safebooru]]: A mirror site for Danbooru, this booru hosts only images that have been rated Safe on the parent site. Because Danbooru hosts ads that are very much NotSafeForWork, we ask that any links to image pages on this wiki be made for this site and not Danbooru.

* Nyoubooru, very NSFW. It's a board entirely dedicated to [[{{squick}} fart fetish]] art. It's noteworthy in that it's surprisingly prolific for such a niche subject and has teams of dedicated translators who dub over images and work on translations for the (once again surprisingly numerous) Japanese fart-based games. Some have even made their own games!

* Sankaku Channel: The booru section of anime tabloid site Sankaku Complex. Not suitable for direct linking due to NSFW images and ads.

to:

* Sankaku Channel: The booru section of anime tabloid site Sankaku Complex. Allows practically anything anime, manga or game-related, including doujinshi and artbook scans, and has a massive catalogue of images; around the same number as TBIB, if not more. By default, Channel allows all users to continually scroll down, steadily loading all the images in the tag until they reach the very first one, instead of requiring them to change pages. However, this may make the site slower on low-end machines. Not suitable for direct linking due to NSFW images and ads.ads.
** Idol Complex: Sankaku Complex's second booru. Features the same system as Channel, but it exclusively hosts AV idols and erotic cosplays. Of course, it's not suitable for direct linking either.
