Purpose

This is a variant of {{Cite}} that is to be used when pulling a quote or information from a book that is NOT A MANUAL, such as a strategy guide or any of the manga. This is to be used to cite sources, and should be used within <ref></ref> tags.

This template can also be used in FileInfo to source an image, in which case <ref></ref> tags should not be used. (Leave the "quote" field blank.)

Usage

To use, enter this code:
