Insert a landscape picture that represents the location, preferably in its entirety, or an iconic shot in lack of a better option. Standard size is 400px aligned to the center.
If the best available image is vertical, its width should usually be around 365px, and the alignment should be to the right. However, it tends to depend from case to case what image size that is possible to fit to the right of the text in the page, and what turns too large or too small in comparison with the rest of the page contents, so you should test what works in that regard.
If the best available image is horizontal, which is the preferred option, it should have maximum size of 650px, and you should also test which size that turns most fitting and least intrusive to the rest of the page contents.

For location profiles, always insert the category "Locations", as well as one with the name of the related franchise here.
For example, the most important categories in the Danger Room's page are "Locations" and "Marvel Comics".
In order to avoid repetition, the wiki enforces the following standards to location profiles:
- Locations deemed too mundane and similar to real world locations will likely be deleted on a case-by-case basis.
- Locations with extremely inconsistent structures with no canonical reasoning are not allowed.
- Locations that are already covered by another profile are subject to heavy scrutiny in regards to their necessity.
- If a location grants an extreme advantage to one side or another, a balanced alternative should be discussed in the relevant versus thread. Otherwise, the match will not be listed on any profiles.
- Matches will also not be added if the location "wins", i.e., achieves win conditions through its effects on both the opponent, as it is then a mismatch.
- Please refrain from creating profiles for real world locations, as most of them are very mundane and unremarkable.
- If a location is better represented by another profile format, such as a Weapon or a Character, then it is best to pick them over the above format.
- Tatooine (Star Wars)
- The Hidden Leaf Village (Naruto)
- Hyrule; Ocarina of Time (The Legend of Zelda)
- Green Hill Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog)
- Gravity Falls (Gravity Falls)
