Specific Animation Rules
- Single characters and character groups are accepted. We accept fanlistings for animated bands, groups, clubs, races and species. Gender-specific character groups are limited to "male" or "female". Male includes men and boys, and female includes women and girls. Also, you are not able to "stack" descriptors. This means that "Male Characters of" is okay. "Vampires of" is okay. "Male Vampires of" is not okay.
- In the comments box, please specify a few extra details about the subject and if possible, provide a link to a website about the subject.
- If you're applying for a character, please include the name of the TV show or movie the character is from, ie. Simpsons, The: Simpson, Homer or Little Mermaid, The: Ariel (last names are listed first).
- Anything by Sanrio belongs in the Toys/Collectibles category.
- Any TV/movie stuff for animated movies/shows belongs in Animation! Anything belonging to a character, such as clothes or weapons, will not be accepted as they belong to the character, thus the character fanlisting covers them.
