This is the Boku no Hero Academia Wiki's Manual of Style. Below are some of the guidelines that we use for keeping articles organized and in a similar fashion. Please take your time to read and follow the guidelines as closely as possible as you edit any and all pages.

Policies listed here are for usage in articles. Unless stated, they must be followed across the wiki, without exceptions.


  • Articles should be written with In-Universe wording. With the exception of the Trivia section, phrases like "in Chapter 23" or "in the Battle Trial arc" should be kept out of sentences.

General writing style

  • The content of this wiki is expressed in English. This is an English language wiki and all edits are expected to be carried out in English (with exception to the Japanese content required via technique, powers or skill names determined by the content of the series).
  • The official Viz translations are to be used for names of Quirks, moves, titles of chapters and volumes.
  • Avoid the use of obscenities, slang terms and euphemisms in articles. They can be used only in the context of quotes from characters.
  • Keep the tenses of articles/sections consistent.
    • History sections of character articles should be written in past tense. All other sections of an article, including chapter summaries, should be written in present tense.
    • If the content of a section of a chapter or episode is a flashback to a previous story point or the article of a deceased character, it should also be written in past tense.

On the infobox of a character page, the raw (Japanese) cover of the chapter should be used. Do not use English (not even the official Viz version) or Chinese (taken from websites like Ishuhui) covers. The cover page of a chapter is the one that has the chapter title on it, not necessarily the first page. New chapter pages should not be created before they're released by an scanlation group or Viz.

Source Referencing

  • All information added to articles on this site must be referenced.
  • Once a page has 8 or more references, a small scroll box must be added to the reference section. This is done so the references don't take up too much space on the page.
    • If you have trouble adding a scroll box, just copy the following code onto the page:
{{Scroll box|
<references />
  • The wiki's information should only come from manga, anime, official websites, official material, officially proven interviews and from Horikoshi Kohei.
  • Although it will be acceptable to cite only the chapter as a reference, it is preferable to cite both chapter and page when referencing.
  • The references should be in this style:
    • For Manga References: <ref>''Boku no Hero Academia Manga'': [[Chapter 1]], Pages 1-2</ref>
    • For Anime References: <ref>''Boku no Hero Academia Anime'': [[Episode 1]]</ref>
    • For Volume Extras References: <ref>''Boku no Hero Academia Manga'': [[Volume 1]] Omake</ref>
  • Note: Some things on the same page will have the exact same reference. In that case, use this format.
    • For Duplicate Manga References: <ref name="ch40p6">''Boku no Hero Academia Manga'': [[Chapter 40]], Page 6</ref>
    • For Duplicate Anime References: <ref name="ep10">''Boku no Hero Academia Anime'': [[Episode 10]]</ref>
  • Also, once you place the initial duplicate reference:
    <ref name="ch40p6">''Boku no Hero Academia Manga'': [[Chapter 40]], Page 6</ref>
    The next duplicate references can just be
    <ref name="ch40p6" />.
