Template:Quote is used for formatting pull quotes.

Quotes can be a great way to convey certain points as stated by characters themselves. However, they should only be used if the quote is substantially representative of the subject at hand, or accurately and succinctly embodies a certain aspect of a topic that's best conveyed by in-game dialogue. Treat quotes similar to thumbnail images in articles, rather than infobox images.

Avoid adding quotes to articles just because a quote mentions the topic at hand. A casual relationship between a quote and the article does not justify the use of this template. Not every article needs a quote. A mistake that new editors commonly make is adding quotes en masse because they're quick and easy ways to make substantial, multiple edits. Use this template judiciously; only when the context calls for it.

This template depends on Module:Quote
This template uses Lua. To make adjustments to this template, edit the module page.

Usage

{{quote |text= |person= |source= |align= |width= }}

Parameters

Required

<unnamed 1> or text or quotetext

The text to be quoted. It is preferred to copy and paste this text directly from the source (e.g. a script page).

Optional

<unnamed 2> or person or personquoted

The name of the character being quoted, with a link to that character's article (if applicable).

Optional

<unnamed 3> or source or quotesource

The source of the quote. If the source is a game script, link directly to the section from which the quote was taken.

Optional

align
(default: "center" )

The alignment of the quote. The default is for it to be in the center, though left or right will format the quote in a block and float it to the left or right, respectively.

Optional

width
(default: "300" )

The width of the quote, only applicable if align is set to left or right. It is generally recommended to not change this value, as a quote too big will squeeze the content around it too much, and a quote too small will squeeze the text within it too much.
