The Naming Policy is a policy that covers naming of articles permitted here. The policy was put in place to avoid edit warring.

ThunderCats

Stylized Naming and Spelling

Terms appear stylized through-out media related to ThunderCats (as well as SilverHawks & TigerSharks). Some names change from source to source, and many places the stylizing was toned down as the series continued. Main cast of characters names go as following:

  • "Lion-O"
  • "Tygra"
  • "Panthro"
  • "Cheetara"
  • "WilyKat"
  • "WilyKit"
  • "Snarf"
  • "Mumm-Ra"

Exceptions

Common naming exceptions do exist, most common is "Slithe" which in most original media has him named "S-S-Slithe". However, he was never called/pronounced as "S-S-Slithe" in the show itself, so the name isn't common.

Status Tag on Names

Status tag on names, such as: "Jaga the Wise", "Tygra the Invisible", "Cheetara the Quick", etc; should not be titles for articles, and only need be added in the "Status" field in the infobox for the character article.

Naming of Groups of People

Group articles, such as: Affiliations, Species, Races, etc; are to be plural naming. Examples: Vulturemen, Stone Giants, Snowmen, Wolos, etc.

Naming Conflicts from Groups to Characters

Many characters are named in the singular form with groups named in plural form; in those cases it is proper to add a tag note to what they for groups.

SilverHawks

Overall, the wiki leans on in episode spellings for topics. In episode text (which is rare) is considered, but not always picked. All spellings used in episode "The Great Galaxy Race" are confirmed and canon. The comics are considered a good but still second canon thing. Comics sometimes change spellings/stylings from page to page. All spellings and information from them needs to be sourced. Toy names used need a source as well, and are the third choice for names.

Stylized Naming and Spelling

In show names tend to be the choice. The Kenner SilverHawks Toyline is really only if it isn't addressed in show or comics.

  • "Bluegrass" -While a episode "One on One" it is shown while Stargazer deactivated Steelwill that Bluegrass is spelled "Bluegras", it goes against the comics, toys, and even the production materials for the show. So it is assumed it was misspelled.
  • "Mirage"[1] [2] (The toyline has it as "Maraj".)
  • "HawkHaven" -The comics had used it most commonly as one word "HawkHaven". The unreleased Toy playset had it as "HawkHaven" as well.
  • "Bedlama"[3]
    • "Bedlama City"[4]
  • "Dolare"[3]
  • "Automata"[3]
  • "The Penal Planet[3] 10[5]
  • "Brim*Star"[3] (The comics are inconstant, and it goes back and forth between "Brimstar" and "Brim*Star".)
  • "Moon*Star"[6] (Comics spell it "Moon-Star".)


Status Tag on Names

Much like ThunderCats, some characters are named with a status Such as: "Zeek the Beak", "Zero The Memory Thief"; should not be titles for articles, and only need be added in the "Status" field or "class"field in the infobox for the character article.
