In addition to Smashpedia's Policies, there are a number of guidelines that guide contributions. Unlike policies, they do not serve as rules, but rather as strong suggestions, or principles under which user should operate in order to make Smashpedia the best it can be. Each Smashpedia guideline contains this header:

This page is a guideline on Smashpedia.
It is a principle that suggests how users should contribute to articles. Please be sure that any edits to this wiki reflect the consensus of the community, and discuss any important changes on this guideline's talk page.

Unlike policies, users do not risk being banned or blocked for not following the guidelines, unless they are clearly flouting the standards and standing in the way of progress.
