Contextual Examples

Let's assume that you are writing an article about a Dungeon in A Link Between Worlds. In that section about A Link Between Worlds, you would use ALBW as the game parameter to fetch the latest canon terms for that game. Here's an example of that happening:

In {{ALBW}}, the {{Term|ALBW|House of Gales|link}} is the third {{Term|ALBW|Dungeon|link}} in {{Term|ALBW|Hyrule|link}}. The {{Term|ALBW|Big Key|link}} is needed to access the {{Term|ALBW|Boss|link}}.

Result: In A Link Between Worlds, the House of Gales is the third Dungeon in Hyrule. The Big Key is needed to access the Boss.

For games with remakes such as Link's Awakening and Ocarina of Time, unless you are specifically referring to the original version of the game, you should use the latest iteration of the remakes (LADX for Link's Awakening and OoT3D for Ocarina of Time and so on) to make sure to account for terms that might have been changed in said remakes.

In {{LA}}, the {{Term|LADX|Tail Cave|link}} is the first {{Term|LADX|Dungeon|link}} on {{Term|LADX|Koholint Island|link}}. The {{Term|LADX|Big Key|link}} is needed to access the {{Term|LADX|Boss|link}}.

Result: In Link's Awakening, the Tail Cave is the first Dungeon on Koholint Island. The Nightmare Key is needed to access the Boss.
