Ace Attorney Wiki

The Ace Attorney Wiki aims to have articles written in complete detail, so there will inevitably be spoilers even in places that one may not expect, particularly for "in-universe" content. Addressing such spoilers can vary in difficulty depending on the situation, with some cases being quite difficult. "Out-of-universe" content such as articles about games or music are not likely to contain spoilers, but some cases, such as music track names, may contain spoilers nonetheless.

Marking spoilers[]

There are some ways to hide content. One method is to wrap text in a spoiler tag, like so:

<span class="spoiler">HIDDEN TEXT</span>

This renders as:

HIDDEN TEXT

Unfortunately, these spoiler tags are currently known not to work in the following situations:

  • Gallery tabs
  • The FandomDesktop skin (the way the site looks on desktop/laptop computers for logged-out users)
  • The mobile skin (the way the site looks on mobile devices, e.g. phones and tablets)

Another method is to wrap the text with Template:Spoiler and Template:SpoilerEnd, as follows:

{{Spoiler}}
HIDDEN TEXT
{{SpoilerEnd}}

This renders as:


Spoiler alert!
This section contains major plot details. Proceed with this in mind.

HIDDEN TEXT

End of spoilers.

These features are currently experimental and may or may not change in the near future.

Content best practices[]

The lead section could, but generally should not, contain spoilers. Since the purpose of the lead section is to give a quick overview, it generally shouldn't be necessary to include heavy spoiler information on a lead section, such as the fact that a character is the culprit behind a case. In some cases, a spoiler could be argued to be an overall improvement to the lead section, but this is generally not the case. Nonetheless, given that lead sections do not have spoiler warnings of any kind, and show up in search engine results, spoiler details should generally be avoided.

In character bios, it's important to indicate which episodes are being drawn from in each section. This is typically done with a line right below the section header reading "Main article(s):" followed by links to the relevant episode articles. An example of how to do this in wikitext is:

==Background==
:''Main article: [[The First Story]]''

Creative section header titles are allowed, even encouraged, but they shouldn't directly refer to information that spoils the plot point in question.

Recent games[]

Articles with information on newly-released and Japan-only games should have one of the following tags that warns the reader about these games:
