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.)


To use, enter this code:


Citing a Book

    {{Cite Book|quote= |book= |publisher= |page= }}

  • quote — The quote to cite.
  • book — The book's title. (See notes.)
  • publisher — The publisher of the book. (See notes.)
  • page — The page(s) the citation appears on.

Notes: Hyrule Historia, Art & Artifacts, Encyclopedia, and Breath of the Wild – Creating a Champion don't require their full title and publisher to be entered, just enter their abbreviations as book: HH, A&A, E, and CaC, respectively.

Citing a Guide

See Template:Cite Guide.

Citing a Manga

    {{Cite Book|type= Manga |quote= |character= |game= |publisher= |page= }}
