This template shows the monster symbol and puts a link to that monster's page after it. Takes one or two parameters, the monster name, and an optional link type, which can be either before, after, or only. Uses before as the default type if the second parameter is missing. If you need a simplified version that only shows the monster symbol as a link, use {{msl}}.

For example:

To specify a specific variant without adding this to the link text, specify the variant parameter, for example:

  • {{monsymlink|Cthulhu|variant=UnNetHack}} produces h Cthulhu
  • {{monsymlink|Cthulhu|variant=SLASH'EM}} produces & Cthulhu

This is intended for use in articles or sections that are obviously about a specific variant, for example linking to Cthulhu in the UnNetHack article.
