The Fatal Frame Wiki is primarily concerned with the recording and collation of canon information.
- 1. Only canon information will be recorded in the articles. Canon is anything directly stated or shown in the Fatal Frame series. If something can be interpreted in two or more ways, the simplest solution should be used. It is the challengers burden to find proof to back their claim.
- 2. We do NOT take information from Zero Wiki. Some of their information is inaccurate.
Unknowns are the ultimate source of speculation. The number of things known about the Fatal Frame Universe are vastly outnumbered by the things that are not known. For example, many characters and ghosts have large "gaps" in their histories as they have yet to be explored in Fatal Frame.
- 3. Articles should not note where the out-of-universe knowledge is lacking. This is to avoid judging which unknowns are more important, and to make a more coherent article-writing strategy.
- 4. Crack theories (i.e. theories that are derived from baseless information that is not supported by the actual material). For example, "The Himuro Family Master is a daimyo" or "fans believes the Himuro Family Master is a feudal lord" has no basis in fact whatsoever for a number of reasons backed by factual materials. Hence, crack theories have no reason to be issued anywhere on the site at all. This form of information is not speculation and has no place in discussing what is actually happening with in the storyline.
- Fan fiction or fanon has no place on the site or anywhere in the speculation section. Fanon are inventions of fan fiction authors that for one reason or another appear to have taken the status of a canon within the Fatal Frame fandom. Basically, fanons are born when one fanfiction writer makes something up for their fanfiction, which then gets picked up by other fanfiction writers and low and behold, unsuspecting Fatal Frame fans are convinced that little tidbit of information is true because they have read it in numerous fanfictions.
