This template is intended for use in fiction sections, allowing for cross-references to the source of the history being discussed, without needing to break the flow of the story or use footnotes.

In non-fiction sections, it's better to refer to the work of fiction normally, e.g., "The last appearance of Bumblebee's Pretender shell is in the comic 'Dark Creation'."

This template accepts two arguments, the first should be the article being linked to, and the second is an optional description which will appear as the link text. If the second argument is omitted, the text of the link will default to the name of the article being referenced.

{{Storylink|King of the Hill|Marvel US #27}}
