As well as automatically categorizing an article into Category:Monsters, this template supplies some standard information about the subject of the article.

Boss Types

The following codes can be used as arguments to |boss-type=.
|boss-type= Boss Type displayed Notes
above Above-Ground
dig or ug Underground
quest Mini-Quest
1 or 1ab 1-Ability Dungeon AKA "Level 1" / "Class C" (old system)
2 or 2ab 2-Ability Dungeon AKA "Level 2" / "Class B"
3 or 3ab or tb 3-Ability Dungeon AKA "Level 3" / "Treasure Boss" / "Class A"
dungeon Dungeon (unknown/generic)


Optional but preferred — The full image file name.
If an image is not supplied, a placeholder will be used, and by default the template will place the {{picture}} hatnote before the infobox. Disable this if necessary with |ignore-no-image=yes (see below).
The class of the monster e.g. alien, feline, humanoid, demon, amphibian etc. Be reasonably exact but don't go overboard by using any taxonomy. (default: Unknown)
The habitat the monster is generally found in. (default: Unknown)
A brief description of the monster's appearance. (default: Unknown)
Optional – The monster's latin name. If set, will be listed directly underneath the article title at the top of the infobox. Automatically italicized.
Optional — The monster's typical health.
To find a monster's health, roll your mouse over the progress bar and it will give you a percentage (let's call it p1). Repeat until you get an EN entry where it tells you how many hp the monster got hit for (call it h). Then roll your mouse over to get the new percentage (call it p2). The health of the monster is: h/((p2-p1)/100).
Optional — Only include if the monster actually has a Death Rattle.
|artifact=Artifact Name
Optional — Only include if the monster actually has its own artifact. Will automatically link to the Godwiki article for that artifact.
|totem=Guild Name
Optional — The Guild which has this monster as its totem monster. Will automatically link to the Godwiki article for that Guild.
(Note: Setting |totem= will categorize the article into the Totem Monsters category.)
Optional — Date or dates when the monster was Wanted in the Godville Times.
In the field, write the word "Day" or "Days" and add the web.archive.org link of the g.e. day or days the monster was in the godville times. Don't write the letters "g.e." as those are automatically added.
Optional — If set to a positive value (such as yes, y, true, 1, etc.), creates a Boss-Monster infobox, and enables one additional parameter:
(Note: Setting |boss=yes will categorize the article into the Boss-Monsters category.)
Optional if boss is enabled — See the boss types table below.
Optional — If set to a positive value (such as yes, y, true, 1, etc.), creates a Pet infobox, and enables two additional parameters:
(Note: Setting |pet=yes will categorize the article into the Pets category.)
Optional if pet is enabled — The range of levels the hero must be in to be able to tame the pet.
Optional if pet is enabled — Only include if the pet actually has a feature listed in its stats.
Optional — Set to yes (or any similar positive-state value) to disable the automatic placement of {{Picture}} above the infobox.
