=== Link all toons ===
Link all instances of toon or game titles so that they can be easily identified. This is in lieu of using italics, quotation marks, or other punctuation (in essence, the link ''is'' the punctuation). Wherever possible, phrase the sentence or paragraph in such a way to avoid duplicate links in close proximity.

Except for toons (see above), a given article should only contain one link to any other page. If a page links to [[Strong Bad]] in one place, then that should be the ''only'' link to Strong Bad on that page. Typically this link should be the first instance of the term in the article. For example, characters in a toon are linked in the cast list, and nowhere else. An exception would be a lengthy non-toon article, where characters etc. can be linked within each large section (especially if other articles link directly to a section).
=== Link every instance in a table ===
=== Link every instance in a table ===
Tables and long lists should contain a link at every instance of a character, toon, place, object, etc. for ease of use for the reader.

If a page links to [[Strong Bad]] in one place, then that should be the ''only'' link to Strong Bad on that page. Typically this link should be the first instance of the term in the article, and wherever possible should be in a standardized location so the reader knows where to look for them. For example, characters in a toon are linked in the cast list, and nowhere else. An exception would be a lengthy non-toon article, where characters etc. can be linked within each large section (especially if other articles link directly to a section).
