Whenever possible, provide images to accompany your article. In HeroesWiki, characters are categorized by season.

Main characters

Each season, NBC announces the main characters by contract. Therefore, only characters listed as "Main" by NBC should be categorized under Main Characters.

  • If a character is added to the Main Characters in the middle of a season (ex. Noah Bennet), the portal and navbar used for that season's character will be updated to include that character.
  • If a character is removed from the Main Characters in the middle of a season (ex. Maya Herrera), the portal and navbar stay the same: the character's name is not removed.

Recurring characters

If a non-Main character has a certain number of appearances in a season, they will be classified as Recurring characters. These characters are listed as "Recurring Characters" in the portals and navbars. The following shows how many appearances a character needs to be "Recurring", as classified by season - shorter seasons means less appearances.

Season Number of appearances for a character to be considered "Recurring"
Season One 4 appearances
Season Two 3 appearances
Season Three 4 appearances

Minor characters

All characters that appear in Heroes, if not classified as Main or Recurring, are classified as "Minor" and are put in one of the alphabetically-sorted portals. Minor characters do not have navbars on their pages, instead they simply have the "Season XXX Characters" navbar.

Graphic novel characters

All characters that only appear in the Heroes graphic novels should be listed as a "Graphic Novel Character". Each graphic novel character should belong to the portal of the main character it is related to. For example, if a Parisian woman sees Daphne steal, she is placed in the Daphne-related graphic novel characters portal, and has the {{GN Daphne}} navbar on her page. If a graphic novel character has no significant character it relates to, it is placed in Miscellaneous graphic novel characters portal.

Deceased characters

Once a character dies in Heroes, his/her page is updated. His/Her navbar entry is also italicized, to show that the character is deceased. Also, his/her portal entry is italicized and brightened, to clearly show that the character is deceased.

If a character that appears in multiple seasons dies, he/she is only listed as "deceased" (i.e. italicized in navbars/portals) in the navbars or portals of the season that he/she died in. For example, since Adam Monroe died in Season Three, the Season Two characters navbar still lists Adam as alive.

Portals

Portals of characters should be sorted by season and by character type. In all portals, characters should be alphabetically listed. This includes the individual character-related portals for graphic novel characters.

Navbars

A new character navbar is created for each season. Navbar entries should be alphabetically sorted.
