Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is only for Capcom-designed entries in the Vs. (Versus) video game series. Due to the similarity of titles of other crossover fighting games involving Capcom properties, it is easy for the uninitiated to confuse them as part of this series. The following criteria is a set of principles to guide inclusion of games to the template {{Capcom's VS. series}}. This is not set in stone and should be treated with common sense and the occasional exception.


How to manage this template's initial visibility
To manage this template's visibility when it first appears, add the parameter:

|state=collapsed to show the template in its collapsed state, i.e. hidden apart from its titlebar – e.g. {{Capcom's VS. series |state=collapsed}}
|state=expanded to show the template in its expanded state, i.e. fully visible – e.g. {{Capcom's VS. series |state=expanded}}
|state=autocollapse to show the template in its collapsed state but only if there is another template of the same type on the page – e.g. {{Capcom's VS. series |state=autocollapse}}

Unless set otherwise (see the |state= parameter in the template's code), the template's default state is autocollapse.
