  • Season start date and end date should be listed under the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT), as this is the default timezone that TV Tropes uses. Use this website to convert the starting and ending timestamps from your local time to PST/PDT.

    • Air transport
    • Food and drink
    • Clothing
    • Other objects (not "inanimate objects" as that's actually subdivided into various object categories (clothing, food and drink, furniture, weapons, appliances, land/water/air transport, etc. "Other objects" is for object tributes that don't exactly fit in other object categories)
    • Other
    • (etc)
  • The following species-change AUs are their own categories, and any tribute who falls under them must be listed there instead of being listed as alt forms so as not to be confused with canon species changes:
    • Humanized Characters (non-canon): Canon examples such as Princess Twilight Sparkle's human form (she's a pony by default, and is not to be confused with Sci-Twi, who's a human to begin with) must be listed under the canon source material.
    • Merfolk Characters (non-canon): Canon examples such as Melody's mermaid form (she's a human by default) must be listed under the canon source material.
    • Ponified Characters (non-canon): Canon examples such as Sunset Shimmer's pony form (she's a human by default even if she was born a pony) must be under My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic instead.
    • Cookified Characters
  • Troper author avatars should be listed under "Troper Author Avatars" if they are not from or based on a specific work. If they are, they should be listed under either the work they originate in (if such a work exists) or as "Original Characters (source material)" if they are based on a specific work but just floating around on their own.
  • Memes are not lumped under a single meme category. Because most of them have their own Know Your Meme pages, they are listed under themselves as "works".
  • Branded items are listed under their companies because they fall under the Advertising namespace on TV Tropes. This includes advertising mascots unless they have their own TVT page like Pepsiman.
  • Bootlegs (e. g. Ten 10 or the Revengers) are listed under the Bootlegs category.
  • Concept art of canon characters (e. g. Prototype Turbo from Wreck-it Ralph), characters that are from works that were canceled before release (e. g. any tribute from vaporware), and characters that were cut from the final release (e. g. Bubo from Encanto) belong to their own category: Concept Characters, because they're non-canon.
  • Whether tributes with DID (e. g. Mike from Total Drama) or other forms of plurality are counted as group tributes or not is subject to a case-by-case basis. Community consensus is highly recommended on determining this, especially for tributes from published works. Fusions, on the other hand, are always counted as singular tributes, regardless of how many components they have.
  • Tributes with Japanese names must be listed in Western order (first name, last name) unless their work's TVT page specifies that they must be listed in Japanese order (last name, first name).
  • Real-life sports teams and players are listed under the National Leagues they played for if applicable, while Olympians are sorted under their own category: Olympics. Both the National Leagues and the Olympics are special Real Life categories.
  • If you're not sure of a tribute's work of origin, do a reverse image search of their pic or ask their nominator. Not every tribute that appears different from their canon selves are alternate forms (canon or otherwise), but rather are drastically different fanon interpretations (and therefore, should fall under Alternate Character Interpretations or the specific fanwork they're from), so please think carefully before listing them as one or the other.
  • All works must be listed under their English names when applicable. Same goes for all tributes unless their foreign name is more recognizable/commonly used (e. g. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure tributes).
  • YouTubers/Let's Players, musicians, and wrestlers are listed under themselves because they have their own TVT pages under their respective namespaces: Web Videos/Let's Plays (though the latter has become defunct), Music, and Professional Wrestling. Anyone under the Creator/UsefulNotes namespace such as actors, directors, or politicians, etc. are listed under their respective Real Life category.
  • List reserves by their nominator post order. Additionally, list alternate forms and alternate nicknames by their nomination order, which goes by nominator post and mains first, reserves last order.
  • Location tributes are assumed to be singular tributes (i. e. the landmass only) unless the nominator specifies that their population is included. If so, then their group tribute count is "[location's population] + 1" since the landmass is also included, making them "situational group tributes", unless only the population was nominated. In that case, the population is considered as a separate tribute from the landmass.
