Many works have very extensive Character Sheets, but some characters are so popular, have a lot of depth, appear in so many different works of their respective franchise, or just plain Troperiffic, that they can provide an entire page to just themselves.
That doesn't mean all of them are "better" or more important, just filled with enough tropes to become their own pages, and in a few cases indexes.note
It should be noted that these characters having their standalone pages is the result of working around the issues the wiki software/server has with Overly Long Pages. Basically if a Character Sheet with multiple characters is getting too large for the wiki, and if a lone character on the sheet makes up a sizable amount, giving the character their own page is a common way to divide the Character Sheet's content into smaller pages.
Here are some qualifiers for what warrants a unique page (meeting at least two is recommended):
- The character's page bypasses technical limitations and requires a split up.
- A single character takes up the majority of a page or is disproportionately bigger than other folders.
- The character folder is cleaned up beforehand, fixing any Zero Context Examples, removing outdated/misused tropes, and making sure all tropes listed fall under Character Tropes and its related indexes (exceptions can be discussed).
- A character folder is at least 6,000 words/40,000 characters (with spaces). Here is a byte counter. Once a new Character-Specific Page has been created, be sure to add its byte count to this page.
- And most importantly, other options must have been tried first, like splitting pages into further groups.
This is divided into three sections:
- Straight examples that are dedicated to only one character.
- Titles or monikers, which are single identities shared across multiple different characters.
- Character specific pages that also cover an associated minor character, a weapon, an important object, or multiple incarnations of the character.
Some other important notes:
- Monikers and character titles are not allowed in the page's title. (e.g. One Piece: Monkey D. Luffy is preferred over his full in-series moniker: One Piece: "Straw Hat" Monkey D. Luffy)
- Superfluous naming like middle names should be kept to a minimum, especially if it's not something the work draws attention to.
- The original page a character is split off from should still have enough writing to stand on its own (i.e. Having an equivalent byte count to the new page).
No Real Life Examples, Please!; Such a page already exists. Also, odds are almost every single one of these pages will contain spoilers. An extra warning might be given if the character is a spoiler in and of themselves, but that's the only warning you'll get.
