help:upload rules (locked)
All uploads to Danbooru are subject to the following upload rules. Uploads that break these rules may be deleted.
Danbooru is primarily for original anime-style or anime-related artwork. "Anime-related" is a broad term that includes anime, manga, videogames, original artwork, and other similar material.
The following things are considered off-topic:
- Real life pornographic photos or videos, such as Western porn actresses or Japanese AV idols.
- Real life photos that have nothing to do with anime, manga, or videogames.
- Low effort or unoriginal memes.
- Western cartoon porn or rule 34 porn.
- Western furry content.
You may not upload any of the following to Danbooru:
- Off-topic content.
- Poorly drawn content.
- Paid rewards.
- Commercially licensed anime or manga.
- Real photos of any person under the age of 18.
- Works containing third-party watermarks.
- Works upscaled or downscaled by third parties, including Waifu2x upscales.
- Hard translations to non-English languages (hard translated (non-english)).
- Third-party edits that substantially alter the content of the image, such as nude filters, headshops, fake translations, or meme or joke edits.
- Low effort or unoriginal memes, such as image macros or motivators.
- Semen on figure photographs.
- Yukkuri abuse.
The following things are not strictly against the rules, but they have a much higher chance of being deleted than normal. Uploaders should be careful about uploading these things, and approvers should be careful about approving them.

- Explicit furry content.
