Acceptable vs Unacceptable Images

Acceptable Images Unacceptable Images
  • Images related to the series and taken directly from the author, publisher or any other official source.
  • Colored images from the manga are permitted, however they must be from the official source. Panels that have been colored from fansites or any other source are not permitted.
    • Black-and-white panels are generally favored, however, if the colored panel contributes a better visual representation of the subject, then it can be used instead (ex. images used to showcase Demon Slayer Marks).
  • In the case of the manga, images should be uploaded with no text in speech bubbles. If there is text outside of a speech bubble that would need to be redrawn, the raw (Japanese) version must be used.
    • Only the text outside of a speech bubble in a raw version shouldn't be erased. The text inside a speech bubble must still be erased.
  • In the case of the anime, images should not have subtitles, watermarks, or editor credits.
  • Only .gif or .png file extensions. This is the standard requirement for the wiki system, and many file extension types (such as .BMP) are not uploadable.
  • Collages.
  • Fanart of any form, for any reason.
  • Images unrelated to Kimetsu no Yaiba.
  • Images with improper filenames.
  • Files in any other format other than .png or .gif.
  • Images with watermarks.
    • The exception is if it is an official watermark.
  • Images with potential spoilers until the official chapter/volume is released.
  • Images for your profile should not be uploaded to the wiki. Please upload them to another image sharing site and import them here.
  • Nudity and any other kind of image that shows explicit scenes, even if it is from an official source, according to Wikia's Terms of Use.
  • Duplicate images.
    • If you find a duplicate image, please mark it with {{Delete}} in the file summary and include the filename of the duplicated image.
  • Fake images.
  • Uploading images and not using them in articles or character galleries.
Failure to abide by the 'Acceptable Images' policy will result in the image(s) being deleted. In extreme cases (eg. breaking Wikia's Terms of Use via image upload), a temporary or permanent block from the wiki may be necessary.

Uploading Images

When you upload an image to this wiki, please provide the minimum necessary information:

  • Descriptive Filename: Files should be named to outline key elements that occur in the image. For certain files, there are specific naming conventions:
    • Chapter and volume covers: Chapter covers should be the full, raw page with speech in text bubbles erased and named as shown:
      Kimetsu no Yaiba CH#/V#.png
      • The official English volume cover should have 'EN' appended after the volume number.
    • Character profiles: Image galleries usually have a section dedicated to containing a profile of the character's appearances, and images should be named accordingly and specific to that character. See Tanjiro's image gallery for examples of how to name these separate appearances.
    • If there is an image that has potential to be used but is improperly named, please add the {{Rename}} template to its file summary.
  • Licensing: The Fairuse Template should be added to every image you upload that is from an official source. It can be added by selecting 'Fair use' in the dropdown licensing menu below where the file is renamed, or through manually editing it in by putting {{Fairuse}}.
  • Categorization: After you upload a file, please add the appropriate categories via the button at the bottom of the page, or the tab on the right hand side of the Classic Editor screen. These categories should include which characters are in the image, and which chapter/episode you took the image from.
  • Image Gallery placing: Please add uploaded images to each respective image gallery of the character(s) in the images, unless one such character does not have an image gallery. This prevents duplicates from being uploaded.
    • Images from the anime with untidy aspect ratios (example), episode & arc collages, and colored manga panels (example) are the only exceptions to this rule and should remain outside of character galleries. This is due to them messing with the image spacing and making galleries look untidy. However, with the exception of the collages, they must still have the appropriate character and chapter/episode categories. If you're unsure if an image you've uploaded should be added or not or have any further questions regarding this point, please contact an active admin.


Images that do not follow the 'Acceptable Image' policy will be removed or replaced. If an individual is found to have continuously violated the image policy, they will be given a single warning. If the same individual continues to disobey the policy, the user will potentially receive either a temporary or permanent block from the wiki, depending on the extent of the violation.

If there is ever uncertainty over whether or not an image follows the guidelines, do not hesitate to contact an admin if you have any questions or concerns.
