Under the movement of Project: Game Templates, each video game of the Sonic the Hedgehog series will have templates known as a "Game Template." There are some guidelines to making these types of navigation boxes:

  • In the section just below the title and above the boxes, only links to the following subjects should appear (in the following order):
    • Link to the article of the game itself
    • Gallery subpage of the game
    • Beta elements subpage of the game
    • Pre-releases of the game
    • Re-releases/ports of the game
    • Video game scripts of the game
  • The template includes every information of the video-game itself. This can be done by looking through its category (i.e. Category:Sonic the Fighters).
  • Every template must end with the word "info".
  • Main-series console games must have the color "#6699CC"; handheld games must have the color "crimson"; spin-off games must have the color "#E8C819".
  • No game without its own category can have a game template.
  • Place the template at the bottom of the article's page as with all navboxes.
  • If an article has two or more game templates, place them in order of their respective games' original release (for example, you would place {{Sonic 1 info}} Info before {{Sonic 2 info}} in the Spin Attack article.)
    • If there are more than 5 navigation templates on an article, please use {{Navigatebox}} to collapse them.
    • If more than 15 game templates link to one page, no game templates can be listed in that article.

Here is a basic coding for a game template:

<div style="clear: both; margin: 1em auto; border-left: 10px solid #6699CC; border-radius: 10px;">
<div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed" style="padding: .01em .01em 0; border-top: 1px #aaaaaa solid; border-right: 1px #aaaaaa solid; border-bottom: 1px #aaaaaa solid; border-left: none; border-collapse: collapse; background-color: #f9f9f9; color: #000000;">
{{#if: {{{1|}}}|{{{1}}}}}
<div style="font-size: 1em;"><center>'''''<span style="color:white">Name of game'''''</span></center></div>
    Begin collapsible content:
--><div class="mw-collapsible-content" style="margin-bottom: .04em;">
<hr style="margin: 0 0 .25em; padding: 0; border: none; height: 1px; background: #cbcbcb; background: -webkit-gradient(linear,left bottom,right bottom,color-stop(0,#fff),color-stop(0.1,#cbcbcb),color-stop(0.9,#cbcbcb),color-stop(1,#fff)); background: -moz-linear-gradient(left center,#fff 0,#cbcbcb 10%,#cbcbcb 90%,#fff 100%);" />
<small><center>[[Name of game|Main article]] | [[Name of game/Gallery|Gallery]]</center></small>
<div class="NavContent">
{| style="width: 100%; border: 0px none; border-style: none; margin-left: 0; margin-right: 0; text-align: left"
