Hey could someone add a parameter for this, so that you can put colours for pictures like this one: KirbyHeadRedSSBM.png? make it |cl= or something and make it optional thanks --MMAI.pngMeMyselfAndI 04:07, 30 August 2013 (EDT)

Adjusting the link[edit]

It would be more practical if the link was automatically defaulted to the character's article, and maybe l=no could be typed to remove the link. Awesome Cardinal 2000 19:17, 3 November 2013 (EST)

I'd also suggest making them the standard tournament results size (16px I believe). Awesome Cardinal 2000 19:34, 3 November 2013 (EST)

I changed the default from "no link" to "relevant link". Unlinking is done by setting l= to blank. I'm not changing the default size; {{sm}} takes care of that. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Resolute 14:27, 4 November 2013 (EST)

PM heads[edit]

I think a PM head icon for every character should be available, and each PM icon should have a purple aura around it like on Smashboards. This is to differentiate it from Brawl. Awesome Cardinal 2000 11:19, 13 October 2014 (EDT)

Oh so that's what that means on SmashBoards, I thought it was some ugly attempt at...well I don't know really. It's not intuitive in any case, and the context should make it clear whether Brawl or PM is being referred to. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Keymaster 11:22, 13 October 2014 (EDT)

Needs update[edit]

The documentation may need to be updated to factor in both Smash 4 games. Berrenta (talk) 18:01, 26 December 2014 (EST)

Indeed. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Labbie 19:45, 26 December 2014 (EST)

At the moment, not specifying a game yields the Brawl head for characters who have one. Any reason not to update this to using the SSB4 heads when possible? (I'm specifically asking in the context of Template:FinalSmash, where having most of the heads link to the SSB4 character pages is less than ideal.) Miles (talk) 17:04, 6 May 2015 (EDT)

Right now that's not really an issue with the template, it's more an issue with not all the "CharHead.png" images (without a game affiliation) having been re-redirected to SSB4 heads. So the solution is not to change this template, but to change the relevant image redirects.
Or, we can go with a different potential solution: turning the "CharHead.png" set into generic, game-independent icons. I found an old SVG file where I was putting together something similar that looks like this. It's got a lot of unnecessary stuff on it right now, and I'd had to do some tweaking to get it to look decent on light backgrounds, but you get the idea.
The third idea is to mandate game specification for this template, which honestly might be the best option overall. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Keymaster 18:00, 6 May 2015 (EDT)
Well, the first of the three most specifically fixes the issue I was thinking of. The third would work as well, although having to manually re-link the icons if you want to do a generic link (like Bowser's SSB4 head linking to Bowser) is slightly roundabout. Not a huge deal either way, though. Miles (talk) 18:03, 6 May 2015 (EDT)
